I looked and saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion! With him were a hundred forty-four thousand, who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. Then I heard a sound from heaven that was like a roaring flood or loud thunder or even like the music of harps. And a new song was being sung in front of God's throne and in front of the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn that song, except the one hundred forty-four thousand who had been rescued from the earth. All of these are pure virgins, and they follow the Lamb wherever he leads. They have been rescued to be presented to God and the Lamb as the most precious people on earth. They never tell lies, and they are innocent.
Revelation 14: 1 - 5
Who is this group of people who never tell lies and are innocent? These people are different from others because the Bible says that “all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.”
If you believe that the 144,000 number is an exact and not symbolic number then I have no idea who they are.
But consider the possibility that these precious people are those who died either before they were born or before they reached an age where they would be accountable for their actions.
Listen again to John’s description of them: “They have been rescued to be presented to God and the Lamb as the most precious people on earth.”
With the millions and millions of babies that have been aborted even in recent history, I find it hard to believe that the Bible would not make some reference to them! If these verses are talking about those babies, I find it a wonderful picture of them following Jesus around Heaven while they sing a song that no one else could learn! I can’t imagine how beautiful that song will be when we hear it on the Day we enter Eternity!
Remember, the Bible tells us to think about things above!
“Lord Jesus, open our eyes to see things that we cannot see and understand things that we cannot understand. Praise Your Holy Name, now and forever. Amen.”
