The day, the month, and the year
of the sealing time of the 144.000 end time Israelites in the future ?
“The great truths necessary for salvation are made clear as the noonday, and none will mistake and lose their way except those who follow their own judgment instead of the plainly revealed will of God.” – 5 Testimonies for the Church, p. 331.
To discuss the subject of the sealing of the 144.000 servants of God in the future, we must then first look into the book of Revelation chapter 7 and chapter 14. And even into more of other prophecies of the Old Testament Scriptures, which are now mostly dealing with the subject matter right or indirectly ahead of the second coming of the Lord Jesus in the future. Actually the sealing of the servants of God in the future would be of paramount important for every one of us in these times of the end, because failure to get the sealing is meant the loss of all opportunities to see Jesus at His second advent in the air. Let us now turn to John the Revelator. In his book chapter 7 he said :
“And I heard the number of them which were sealed : and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousands of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” – Revelation 7 : 4.
And in the Revelation 14 : 1 he later said :
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” – Revelation 14 : 1.
That is, beforehand John only heard of the number of them who were sealed, but later he even had witnessed himself the process of the sealing, which was the writing of the Father’s name in their foreheads. So as the apostle of God, he had seen, and had himself witnessed the process, and then wrote all those things he had heard and witnessed for us now living in this time of the end.
The Seal is the Mark of Deliverance
Mrs. White ever said :
“This s e a l i n g of the servants of God is the s a m e that was shown to Ezekiel in vision. (Ezekiel 9). John also had been a witness of this most startling revelation. (Revelation 7 : 4).” – Testimonies to Ministers, p. 445. (In brackets is added).
“Especially in the closing work for the church, in the sealing time of the 144.000, who are to stand without fault before the throne of God, will they feel most deeply the wrongs of God’s professed people. This is forcibly set forth by the prophet’s illustration of the last work under the figure of the men each having the slaughter weapon in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side. “And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.” – 3 Testimonies for the Church, p. 266.
“The class who do not feel grieved over their own spiritual declension, nor mourn over the sins of others, will be left without the seal of God. The Lord commissions His messengers, the men with slaughtering weapons in their hands : “Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eyes spare, neither have ye pity : slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women : but come not near any man upon whom is the mark ; and begin at My sanctuary.” Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.”
“Here we see that the church --- the Lord’s sanctuary --- was the first to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust ……………… These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children all perish together.” --- 5 Testimonies, p. 211.
“The mark of deliverance has been set upon those ‘that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done.’ Now the angel of death goeth forth, represented in Ezekiel’s vision by the men with the slaughtering weapons, to whom the command is given : ‘Slay utterly old and young, both maids and little children, and women : but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary. Says the prophet: ‘They began at the ancient men which were before the house.’ Ezekiel 9 : 1 – 6. The work of destruction begins among those who have professed to be the spiritual guardians of the people. The false watchmen are the first to fall. There are none to pity or to spare. Men, women, maidens, and little children perish together.” – The Great Controversy, p. 656.
All those revealed above are the executions of the law on those Laodiceans of God, both of the SDA Church on the one side, and of the Davidian SDA, on the other side, whose cases will soon be investigated in the heavenly court of justice in the heavenly sanctuary, that shall be found failed to be sealed with the 144.000 elected saints of God. The heavenly court of justice has been now in progress in the heavenly sanctuary ever since October 22, 1844, handling the cases of the dead, ever since the time of Adam and Eve. It then will be continued on the cases of the living, who are now known as the Laodicean Church of SDA and the Laodicean Church of Davidian SDA. And those, who are yet to despise the Law and its Rules of Implementation in the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY will have to pay the price as those revealed above.
All present truth believers of the Laodicean Church of God would have inevitably understood of the 144.000 elected saints of God in the future, both of their background and origin and their doctrinal points of view. This includes all the consequences of the law as those presented above. However, the main of the problems is : WHEN IS THEIR SEALING TO TAKE PLACE IN THE FUTURE ? That is, when is the exact date when the cases of the living is to be investigated ?
“For all the prophets and the l a w prophesied until John.”
(Matthew 11 : 13)
Due to the fact that the doctrinal subject of “THE PURIFICATION OF THE LAODICEAN CHURCH is of paramount important for this time of the end, which is very decisive for life or death of our Laodicean people of this time, let it always be remembered that this is the reason why, all the Old Testament prophets and the law of Moses very early ever since long ago should have prophesied them for us. The law of Moses with all its ceremonial rules of implementation were binding only up to the time when the Lord Jesus died on the cross of Calvary in 31. But the ceremonial law, as a prophecy, it must meet its fulfillment in this time of the end.
Just to that end that in the revelation of the investigative judgment in the heavenly court of justice on the cases of the living in the Laodicean Church, which is also mentioned in the parables of Jesus to be the harvest of the first fruits from within the Laodicean Church of this time of the end, that beside several of the writings of Mrs. White on the matter, the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff had also revealed them in more details in his booklet : “THE JUDGMENT AND THE HARVEST”.
Since this article deals specifically on how to meet THE DATE, and THE MONTH, and THE YEAR of the sealing to take place in the future of those 144.000 elected saints of God, we kindly invite you all to read again the booklet mentioned above. After that you are kindly invited to read also through our website : www.bible-prophecies.org the one entitled : “SEALING TIME OF THE 144.000 AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE KINGDOM.” And so this article would have been provided only for more strengthening of our faith, that the day, the month, and the year of that glorious event of the coming of Jesus to stand on the mount Sion in the Palestine should no more be doubted.
The sealing to take place on the 10th
day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar year
The 10th day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar year had been a definitive and permanent day of every year for the twelve tribes children of Israelites to commemorate the day of atonement for their nation. If every day each person of the family could come to the priest with a lamb to offer for a remission of sin, then at every year on the 10th day of the 7th month, it is a day of atonement to be commemorated to the people, that on that definite day of commemoration they should come to the high priest for the atonement of sin for all the nation.
This ceremonial commemoration had been observed time and again every year at the 10th day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar up to the time Jesus died in the Palestine in year 31 to end all the rules of implementation of the ceremonial law of Moses.
N O T E :“In the midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. In AD 31, three and a half years after His baptism, our Lord was crucified. With the great sacrifice offered upon Calvary, ended that system of offerings which for four thousand years had pointed forward to the Lamb of God. Type had met antitype, and all the sacrifices and oblations of the ceremonial system were there to cease.” – The Great Controversy, pp. 327 – 328.
However, the ceremonial law of Moses also did prophesy
Since the law of Moses also prophesied, then the fulfillment of the prophecy should be realized in this time of the end. Thus it is, that the day of atonement during the time of the Old Testament Israelites will again meet its fulfillment in the great and dreadful day of the Lord in this time of the end, which is the day of purification of the Laodicean Church as those prophesied through the prophecies of Ezekiel chapter 9, Isaiah 66 : 16 – 20, and Malachi 3 : 1, 2. Then as well as those saved in the day of the atonement, the fulfillment of the prophecy would also apply to the sealing of the 144.000 Israelite of this time of the end. It is the mark of deliverance from the name of God the Father put on the foreheads of those 144.000 saints of God in the future, that will made them free.
Prophecy of the law of Moses and its interpretation to apply in this time of the end, will be found in the booklet entitled : THE JUDGMENT AND THE HARVEST, by Victor T. Houteff. The things deliberated there have been sustained by a drawing cycle here below to enable us understand more easily.
There was stipulated in the law of Moses the 10th day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar, to be commemorated time and again every year as the day of atonement. But since the ceremonial law of Moses applies only up to the time Jesus died in year 31, then there is only one more day of atonement to be fulfilled in this time of the end, as those prophesied through the ceremonial law.
All historical events of the world, as long as they happened in the days, or in the weeks, or in the months, irrespective of their years, they could be put in the same drawing cycle. And so each drawing cycle as sawn above is enough to accommodate several events of several years as those presented above. And for events of several years that differ one from another, they could be easier to use more drawing cycles to explain their cases.
The Day of Atonement fall
on the 10th day of 7th month of the Jewish Calendar Year
The day of atonement would meet its fulfillment in this time of the end when the end time Israelites of the 144.000 receive the seals upon their foreheads as the mark of deliverance. For us to know the exact time of the day and the month of the glorious event according to the international calendar year of ours, let us now follow carefully the drawing cycle here below.
Read carefully the above drawing cycle : The 7th month of the Jewish calendar above ends at September 22 of our calendar year. At this day the length of day and night respectively are the same. Since according to the Bible the beginning and the end of a day is at sunset. As well as we commemorate the Sabbath Day from sunset to sunset. So the 7th month of the Jewish calendar ends with September 22 of our calendar year.
Now for discovering the 10th day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar : let us add 10 days to the 22 days of September to result in 32 days of September, which is October 2 of our international Calendar year.
Thus is the sealing time of the end time Israelites of God in the future to occur in none other than October 2.
Since we are already now in the year 2015, we should be more aggressively to know the exact year wherein the sealing process should have taken place. And how is the day to be great for a certain people whereas very dreadful for others who fail to be sealed.
And since the sealing of the servants of God would have directly established them as vanguards of the citizens of the coming Kingdom in the Palestine, then the year wherein the sealing is to take place would be the year of the establishment of the Davidic Kingdom as well.
The year of the sealing = The year of the establishment of
the Davidic Kingdom in the Palestine
The servants of the Lord ever wrote :
"When the Son of man rode triumphantly into Jerusalem, they expected Him to be crowned king. The people flocked from all the region about, and cried, “Hosanna to the Son of David. Matthew 21 : 9.” – Mrs. White -- Life Sketches, p. 62.
“The Jews wanted a kingdom of their own, a kingdom of this world (saint and sinner in it). Yes, they wanted a kingdom on earth, but none in Heaven. What is more, they wanted it two thousand years ahead of schedule. Now, ironically, in the time of the restoration of the Kingdom, the Denomination takes an opposite attitude: It wants a kingdom in Heaven, but none on earth.” – Victor T. Houteff -- Timely Greetings, Vol.1, No. 15, p. 20.
The desire of the Jews to have their kingdom reestablished as soon as ever before, had been presented directly to Jesus in the year 27, after He got His baptism in the hands of John the Baptist. Since the baptism took place in the year 27, whereas they wanted it to be established “two thousand years ahead of schedule”, every intelligent reader would have directly understood, that the kingdom would unavoidably be established in the year 2027, two thousand years after His baptism in the year 27.
C o n c l u s i o n
And since the day of atonement fell on the 10th day of the 7th month of the Jewish calendar, which also signifies the end time Israelites of the 144.000 to receive their sealing of deliverance put upon their foreheads by the angel of God, then from the drawing cycle no. 2 above it could be found that 10th day from the 7th month is : 10 days to be added to the 22 days of September to result in 32 days of September, which is similar to 2 days of October. Thus it is positively clear that the sealing time of the 144.000 servants of God in future would fall on October 2, 2027. And all the process of the establishment of the Davidic Kingdom in the Palestine (the feast of Tabernacle) will be held from the 15th day of the 7th month up to the 21th day of the 7th month of the Jewish Calendar, which is from October 7 up to October 13 of the year 2027 in the future.
“The apostles positively believed that Christ was to set up His kingdom a t His first advent, but they, too, had to change their belief.” – Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 13, pp. 6, 7.
At last the apostles should have changed their minds too to believe, that the Davidic Kingdom of the end time Israelites (of the 144.000), has to be established just in this time of the end. And we all have to believe that the kingdom would have been established only after the end time Israelites received their mark of deliverance put on their foreheads on the appointed time of October 2, 2027. Would you like also to believe as well as the apostles of Christ believed after changing their minds ?
The need for knowing the exact time of the great and dreadful day of the Lord in the future, has been prophesied for us in the ceremonial law of Moses. The interpretation of the prophecy has been presented us by the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff. It is a must for every one of us as the wise virgins without guile in the mouth to know it.
The sealing angel of the Lord is now roaming everywhere in the Davidian of the Laodicean Church, and only those who know their exact time of deliverance that could be found ready for the sealing. Whereas those who are in the habit of opposing every time setting for the sealing of the servants of the Lord in this time of the end, let them understand that the prophecy of the ceremonial law of Moses and its interpretation presented us by the servant of the Lord Bro. Houteff would never fail.
“The church of Christ’s day was determined to have the kingdom set up then, when not all was yet ready for it; the church of today is determined not to have it now, when ‘the end of all things is at hand’ (1 Pet. 4 : 7) --- when the time is fully come! The Jews wanted back the kingdom which they had lost --- a kingdom of sin and sinners. They were eager to be freed from Roman bondage only, instead of from sin and sinners also.” --- Mount Zion at the Eleventh Hour, p. 73.
