The 144,000, The Firstfruits for God and The Lamb by Tuese Ahkiong

The 144,000, The Firstfruits for God and The Lamb 
by Tuese Ahkiong


 

Twelve is symbolic for divine structure, government perfection/ completion.  There are 12 months, 12 Tribes, 12 Apostles…

 

A thousand is symbolic of fullness / completeness.
Like God owns the cattle on a 1000 hills (Ps 50:10) but the 1001st belongs to satan. j/k.  No, it means God completely owns every sheep, hill, everything... 
I will curse those who hate me to the 3rd and 4th generation, but to those who love me I will bless to a thousand generation (34:6-8). Simply those who love God are completely blessed.
Better is one day in your house than a 1000 elsewhere (Ps 84:10). It's saying 1 day in God's house is far better than the completeness/ fullness of being anywhere else outside of God's presence. 

 

The 144,000 symbolizes the twelve tribes of Israel times twelve thousand of each tribe which equals completion/ fullness of the firstfruits of the New Creation, The New Testament church, The New Jerusalem under the rule of Christ. (12x12x1000).  

 

 

Revelation 7:1-17

After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, WITH THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have SEALED THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS.” And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, SEALED FROM EVERY TRIBE OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL:
12,000 from the tribe of Judah were sealed,
12,000 from the tribe of Reuben,
12,000 from the tribe of Gad,
12,000 from the tribe of Asher,
12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali,
12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh,
12,000 from the tribe of Simeon,
12,000 from the tribe of Levi,
12,000 from the tribe of Issachar,
12,000 from the tribe of Zebulun,
12,000 from the tribe of Joseph,
12,000 from the tribe of Benjamin were sealed.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “THESE ARE THE ONES COMING OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION. THEY HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.
15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God,
    and serve him day and night in his temple;
    and he who sits on the throne will SHELTER THEM WITH HIS PRESENCE.
16 THEY SHALL HUNGER NO MORE, NEITHER THIRST ANYMORE;
    THE SUN SHALL NOT STRIKE THEM,
    NOR ANY SCORCHING HEAT.
17 FOR THE LAMB IN THE MIDST OF THE THRONE WILL BE THEIR SHEPHERD,
    AND HE WILL GUIDE THEM TO SPRINGS OF LIVING WATER,
AND GOD WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES.”


**The sealing of the 144,000 on their foreheads is NOT a literal marking on these saints’ heads but the sealing of God’s Holy Spirit being in them. 
  1. 2 Corinthians 1:22  and who has also put HIS SEAL ON US AND GIVEN US HIS SPIRIT in our hearts as a guarantee.
  2. Ephesians 1:13  In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, WERE SEALED WITH THE PROMISED HOLY SPIRIT,
  3. Ephesians 4:30  And do not grieve THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, BY WHOM YOU WERE SEALED FOR THE DAY OF REDEMPTION.
  4. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 
    “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a SIGN on your HAND, and they shall be as frontlets BETWEEN YOUR EYES.You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
**YHWH's Word is to be bound as a SIGN on one's HAND.  How is YHWH's Word a SIGN on one's HAND?  Hand is symbolic of one's conduct.  One conducts oneself based upon their belief.
The frontlets BETWEEN ONE'S EYES is THE FOREHEAD.  This is symbolic of one's mind, heart, thinking, belief.



Revelation 14:1-5 

behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 WHO HAD HIS NAME AND HIS FATHER'S NAME WRITTEN ON THEIR FOREHEADS. And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and THEY WERE SINGING A NEW SONG before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. IT IS THESE WHO HAVE NOT DEFILED THEMSELVES WITH WOMEN, FOR THEY ARE VIRGINS. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as FIRSTFRUITS FOR GOD AND THE LAMB, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless.



2 Corinthians 11:2  For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, TO PRESENT YOU AS A PURE VIRGIN TO CHRIST.

** Around 55 A.D., Paul speaks of presenting the 1st century Church to Christ as a pure virgin.  This would take place at the wedding of Christ and His church in 70 A.D.


  1. Romans 8:23   And not only this, but also we ourselves, having THE FIRST FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
  2. Romans 11:16  If the dough offered as FIRSTFRUITS is holy, so is the whole lump, and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
  3. 1 Corinthians 15:20  But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the FIRSTFRUITS of those who have fallen asleep.
  4. 1 Corinthians 15:23  But each in his own order: Christ the FIRSTFRUITS, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.
  5. 2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the FIRSTFRUITS to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.
  6. James 1:18  Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of FIRSTFRUITS of his creatures.




The 144,000 were the first generation of Jewish Christian saints.  They were the firstfruits for God and The Lamb 14:4.  Just think, many supposed prophecy experts put the firstfruits in the future.  How can the firstfruits still be FIRST if its nearly 2000 years into the future of since Christianity began?  They wouldn't be the 1st but the 2000 + Xth!   Ain't it crazy how the Zionists have deceived so many Christians with their false doctrines
The 144,00 went through The Great Tribulation.  After Babylon, Apostate Israel was destroyed in The Great Tribulation which Christ said would be in that 1st century generation, The 144,000 were married to Christ in 70A.D.

THE ENEMY OF GOD WAS APOSTATE ISRAEL by Tuese Ahkiong

THE ENEMY OF GOD WAS APOSTATE ISRAEL by Tuese Ahkiong



Enemy is use throughout Scripture in several different contexts.  At times, Satan is identified as an enemy; along with death, Philistines, the world, God, and apostate Israel.  


In The Old Testament, when Israel or leaders would rebel against God in being stiffed-necked, disobedient; worship false gods; persecute and kill God's prophets, The Lord became their enemy.

  1. Isaiah 63:10  But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; therefore HE TURNED TO BE THEIR ENEMY, AND HIMSELF FOUGHT AGAINST THEM.
  2. 1 Samuel 28:16 And Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since THE LORD HAS TURNED FROM YOU AND BECOME YOUR ENEMY?
  3. Lamentations 2:5  THE LORD HAS BECOME LIKE AN ENEMY; he has swallowed up Israel; he has swallowed up all its palaces; he has laid in ruins its strongholds, and he has multiplied in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.
  4. Jeremiah 30:14   All your lovers have forgotten you; they care nothing for you; for I HAVE DEALT YOU THE BLOW OF AN ENEMY, the punishment of A MERCILESS FOE, because your guilt is great, because your sins are flagrant.
  5. Micah 7:10 THEN MY ENEMY WILL SEE, and shame will cover her who said to me, “Where is the Lord your God?  My eyes will look upon her; now she will be trampled down like the mire of the streets.
  6. 2 Chronicles 24:19 Yet he sent prophets among them to bring them back to the Lord. These testified against them, but THEY WOULD NOT PAY ATTENTION.
  7. 2 Chronicles 36:15-16  The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent persistently to them by his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place. 16 BUT THEY KEPT MOCKING THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, DESPISING HIS WORDS AND SCOFFING AT HIS PROPHETS, UNTIL THE WRATH OF THE LORD ROSE AGAINST HIS PEOPLE, UNTIL THERE WAS NO REMEDY.
  8. Nehemiah 9:26  “Nevertheless, THEY WERE DISOBEDIENT AND REBELLED AGAINST YOU AND CAST YOUR LAW BEHIND THEIR BACKAND KILLED YOUR PROPHETS, WHO HAD WARNED THEM IN ORDER TO TURN THEM BACK TO YOU, AND THEY COMMITTED GREAT BLASPHEMIES.
  9. Jeremiah 26:5 and to listen to the words of my servants the prophets whom I send to you urgently, THOUGH YOU HAVE NOT LISTENED,
  10. Jeremiah 35:15  I have sent to you all my servants the prophets, sending them persistently, saying, ‘Turn now every one of you from his evil way, and amend your deeds, and do not go after other gods to serve them, and then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to you and your fathers.’ BUT YOU DID NOT INCLINE YOUR EAR OR LISTEN TO ME
  11. Jeremiah 37:15  And the officials were enraged at Jeremiah, and they BEAT HIM AND IMPRISONED HIM in the house of Jonathan the secretary, for it had been made a prison.
  12. Jeremiah 38:6  So they took Jeremiah and CAST HIM INTO THE CISTERN of Malchiah, the king's son, which was in the court of the guard, letting Jeremiah down by ropes. And. THERE WAS NO WATER IN THE CISTERN, BUT ONLY MUD, AND JEREMIAH SANK IN THE MUD
  13. In the New Testament, Apostate Israel’s behavior and attitude did not change.  Even Yeshua predicted that they would kill Him, His disciples, prophets and Apostles.  This made Apostate Israel THE ENEMY OF GOD.
  14. Luke 11:49 Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, I WILL SEND THEM PROPHETS AND APOSTLES, SOME OF WHOM THEY WILL KILL AND PERSECUTE,’
  15. 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16  For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea. FOR YOU SUFFERED THE SAME THINGS FROM YOUR OWN COUNTRYMEN AS THEY DID FROM THE JEWS, 15 WHO KILLED BOTH THE LORD JESUS AND THE PROPHETS, AND DROVE US OUT, AND DISPLEASE GOD AND OPPOSE ALL MANKIND 16 BY HINDERING US FROM SPEAKING TO THE GENTILES THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED—SO AS ALWAYS TO FILL UP THE MEASURE OF THEIR SINS. BUT WRATH HAS COME UPON THEM AT LAST!
  16. Romans 9:27 And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, ONLY A REMNANT OF THEM WILL BE SAVED,
  17. Galatians 4:28-29 Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. 29 BUT JUST AS AT THAT TIME HE WHO WAS BORN ACCORDING TO THE FLESH PERSECUTED HIM who was born according to the Spirit, SO ALSO IT IS NOW.
  18.  Revelation 2:9 “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and THE SLANDER OF THOSE WHO SAY THAT THEY ARE JEWS AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE A SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.
  19. Revelation 3:9  BEHOLD, I WILL MAKE THOSE OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN WHO SAY THAT THEY ARE JEWS AND ARE NOT, BUT LIE—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you.
  20. Matthew 5:12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, FOR SO THEY PERSECUTED THE PROPHETS WHO WERE BEFORE YOU.

  22. Matthew 22:6  while THE REST SEIZED HIS SERVANTS, TREATED THEM SHAMEFULLY, AND KILLED THEM.
  23. Matthew 23:34 Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, SOME OF WHOM YOU WILL KILL AND CRUCIFY, AND SOME YOU WILL FLOG IN YOUR SYNAGOGUES AND PERSECUTE FROM TOWN TO TOWN,
  24. Matthew 23:37  “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, THE CITY THAT KILLS THE PROPHETS AND STONES THOSE WHO ARE SENT TO IT! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!
  25. Luke 21:12  But before all this THEY WILL LAY THEIR HANDS ON YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU, DELIVERING YOU UP TO THE SYNAGOGUES AND PRISONS, AND YOU WILL BE BROUGHT BEFORE KINGS AND GOVERNORS FOR MY NAME'S SAKE.
  26. John 15:20  Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ IF THEY PERSECUTED ME, THEY WILL ALSO PERSECUTE YOU. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
  27. Acts 7:52 WHICH OF THE PROPHETS DID YOUR FATHERS NOT PERSECUTE? AND THEY KILLED THOSE WHO ANNOUNCED BEFOREHAND THE COMING OF THE RIGHTEOUS ONE, WHOM YOU HAVE NOW BETRAYED AND MURDERED,
  28. 2 Corinthians 11:24-26  FIVE TIMES I RECEIVED AT THE HANDS OF THE JEWS THE FORTY LASHES LESS ONE. 25 THREE TIMES I WAS BEATEN WITH RODS. ONCE I WAS STONED. THREE TIMES I WAS SHIPWRECKED; A NIGHT AND A DAY I WAS ADRIFT AT SEA;26 ON FREQUENT JOURNEYS, IN DANGER FROM RIVERS, DANGER FROM ROBBERS, DANGER FROM MY OWN PEOPLE, DANGER FROM GENTILES, DANGER IN THE CITY, DANGER IN THE WILDERNESS, DANGER AT SEA, DANGER FROM FALSE BROTHERS;
  29. Hebrews 11:36-37  OTHERS SUFFERED MOCKING AND FLOGGING, AND EVEN CHAINS AND IMPRISONMENT. 37 THEY WERE STONED, THEY WERE SAWN IN TWO, THEY WERE KILLED WITH THE SWORD. THEY WENT ABOUT IN SKINS OF SHEEP AND GOATS, DESTITUTE, AFFLICTED, MISTREATED—
  30. Matthew 5:43-44 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your ENEMY.’ 44 But I say to you, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES and pray for those who persecute you,
  31. Matthew 10:36  And A PERSON'S ENEMIES WILL BE THOSE OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD.
  32. Matthew 13:25  but while his men were sleeping, his ENEMY came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away.
  33. Matthew 13:28  He said to them, ‘An ENEMY has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’
