Discussion for Revelation 7

    You read where they slept after they died I believe our souls go up to a holding area till Jesus returns at the end.Bible says we r all judged so I can't see anyone going to heaven till Judgement day.It says the sheep will be separated from the goats at Judgement.Just doesn't make any sense to go to heaven then be pulled back out to be judged.I do agree only our bodies r in the grave not our souls
  • A disciple
    Cheryl; the 144,000 are only from the tribes of the children of Israel; and I think that they are just the ones from the time of "Jacob's Trouble" which would then be in addition to the multitudes of the Saints from every generation and century from the beginning. The saved from out of all Nations and Tribes and Families and Tongues are a multitude that no man can number. Very good question!
  • Cheryl
    So, if only the 144,00 are sealed with Jesus when do the rest that believe in Jesus go tho heaven
  • BSP
    Verse 1: These destructive winds show just how extensive the great tribulation and Armageddon will be. It is important to prepare for such events right now.
  • Word
    God is a God of the living not the dead. Anyone who has read the Bilble knows that there are no souls in the graves. Christ when crucified went to the tomb which is the other side of the void known as hell and brought those out from all the way back who had lived by the law but didn't make it and Christ save them before He sat on the throne. Paul teaches of the two bodies we have flesh-spiritual.
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Think about this- why didn't anyone that Jesus raised from the dead speaking about heaven OR complaining about having to come back here? All the seals and Trump's are progressive through the ages. The show is over at the last trump when Christ decends with a shout. With the voice of the archangel. Ecclesiastes says when you're dead you know nothing. Resurrection is at last trump according to God
