People's Bible Notes for Revelation 7:2


Re 7:2 I saw another angel . . . having the seal of the living God. The picture is that of an angel having the seal of the living God. The object of this seal is indicated in Re 7:3. The seal was a mark of ownership. The seal of God on the forehead would mark those sealed at God's. The seal mark on the forehead would be visible to everyone; hence the seal in the forehead has been understood to be the public confession and profession of Christ. This angel would thus symbolize a great and successful movement to evangelize the race.
