This is the magic number. The key to whether or not you believe the holy scripture. Some would argue that its belief in Jesus and the Resurrection and that's a huge part. However that fact is common knowledge and people "believe" and have never picked up a bible. There are also those that say you must believe in creation but ask seven different pastors and you'll get seven different answers; Old creation, first four days were not 24 hour days, it's an analogy ect...! The second coming has been predicted by a huge number of individuals. I'll give you one. Jesus said it will be as it was in the days of Noah. So if we date from the time Israel became a nation May 14 1948. Now it took Noah 120 years to build the ark so we add 120 to 1948 and we arrive at 2068 then Noah was in the ark for seven days before the rain started so now we are at 2075. There you have it May 14 2075. Or not. Jesus said no man knows the day nor the hour. So what one thing can we hang our hat on to prove the Bible is 100% true? 144,000.
If I had the money I could go around the world with DNA testing equipment and prove it tomorrow. But on this issue the Bible is very clear. 144,000 were sealed 12,000 from each tribe. This is not an arbitrary number. this is a exact prediction or should I say prophecy. You now have to make the same decision that John the baptist and the twelve disciples made. This is what the scripture promised.
I'm not writing this for Christians because we will be gone when this becomes important. I'm writing this for those of you left behind. Look for those 144.000 witnesses and if you can't ask them find an old bible and look it up. The whole book is true, you can believe it now and change your life or you can believe then and be killed for your beliefs.
