In the previous article we have studied about the time and place for the Seal of God. God had the four angels at the four corners of the earth hold back the four winds (World War II). While they are ceasing the war temporarily, the seal of God is placed on the foreheads of the chosen people of God. As we have seen in the prophecy, the work of God’s putting the seal starts from the east.
Today, let us find out more information about the seal of God. What is the seal of God and how can we receive the seal of God? This is today’s topic. What is the seal of God?
What is the seal of God?
Then what is the seal of God we have to receive before the great disaster? Without receiving the seal of God nobody can escape from the disaster that will come upon all the people of the earth. Therefore, knowing what the seal of God is crucial for our salvation in the last day.
Jesus’ Teaching about the Seal of God.
John 6:27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.
Here Jesus teaches people that God had put the seal upon himself. Now, we know what the seal of God is. According to the bible, Jesus himself was the seal of God. Now the question is how to receive the seal God gave Jesus on us. This can also be found in the teachings of Jesus 2000 years ago.
Since Jesus has the seal of God, if we can become one body with the Christ, we can have the seal of God on to us. In the same chapter, Jesus teaches us how to become one with Christ himself and have the seal of God upon us.
Jesus’ Flesh and Blood
John 6:53 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.
Jesus teaches to the disciples that the seal God placed upon himself can be passed on to them by eating his flesh and drinking his blood. When we eat his flesh and drink his blood, we can have Jesus (the seal) in us and we also can remain in Jesus (the seal).
Through this we can know that Jesus’ flesh and blood is the seal God has given us for our salvation. Then how can we eat Jesus’ flesh and drink his blood to remain in the seal of God.
Passover, the Seal of God
2000 years ago, Jesus taught the disciples about the way to eat his flesh and drink his blood. On the night of the Passover, he taught his disciples about the meaning of the Passover. Let us look at the scene where he kept the Passover with his disciples.
Matthew 26:17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Jesus made his disciples prepare for the Passover and they kept the Passover on the night.
Matthew 26:26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” 27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
On the night of the Passover, while keeping the Passover with his disciples, he teaches the meaning of the ceremony. He took the bread of the Passover and said, “This is my body (his flesh)”. And to the wine of the Passover, he said, “This is my blood”.
Through the bread and wine of the Passover, we can receive the flesh and blood of Christ. By receiving the flesh and blood of the Christ, we can have the seal of God in us according to the words of promise of the Christ who said, “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them”.
By keeping the Passover, the seal God placed upon Jesus can be in us, and we can be in the seal of God. Since we are under God’s seal, God is claiming us his own and protect us from all the disasters.
Isaiah 43:1 But now, this is what the Lord says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Those who have the seal of God belong to God. God is claiming the ownership of the people who have his name on their forehead because they belong to God. Through this we can understand that the Passover is the seal of God. God already proclaimed the end from the beginning. And the end prophesied in the bible is drawing near. Now we have to receive the seal of God before it is too late.
