The 144,000... Plus More!
I know we've all heard the 144,000 that go to Heaven, and if you were taught such as I was, that is it, and they were all Jews. If that is what you have been told, it is a lie. Whole religions or belief systems have been spun on this lie, technically a half truth. So what is the TRUTH?

1 - They are not all Jewish. They are Israelite.

Revelation 7: 4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

This is not to be confused with the country that is there now as it is but a small part of ancient Israel.

2 - There are far more "other nations and people" than the 144,000 that come just from there. In fact many times the 144,000 from Israel.

Revelation 7: 9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

I underlined the last verse in part because it shows that Christians Will Go Through The Tribulation. Read that one again please.

So what we find is that 12,000 from EACH tribe of Israel is in Heaven and when he looks around he sees more people than he can count worshiping and praising God who've been brought in under Jesus' grace and mercy, and that they came OUT OF the Great Tribulation.
