144,000 - The Saints

government of god
The Bible book of Revelation refers to a group of 144,000 creatures, also known as saints. These saints are men and women who lived a life on the earth and whom Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ, will choose to form a government for the new kingdom, which is the same kingdom that Jesus Christ preached about.
A special opportunity came when Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was crucified. He fulfilled the law, which is an old agreement (covenant) that Moses taught. Instead, a new agreement was revealed to mankind through the preaching of Jesus Christ and His Apostles. It is now possible to understand that some people will become spirit creatures, or saints, which will comprise a special government to direct the new kingdom in perfect righteousness and judgment.
You might ask, "What is the purpose of God only allowing 144,000 people to heaven?" or, "Is not this unfair to all the people who lived before Jesus Christ by only allowing those who lived after his death to be allowed into heaven?" You might also ask, "If only 144,000 people go to heaven, what will everybody else do?" For answers to these questions or other questions that you might have, contact us and we can provide additional Bible verses to help you prove or disprove these ideas. We encourage discussion and look forward to hearing from you!
16. 144,000 - The Saints
Matthew 11:11
The least of the saints is greater than John the Baptist. How? Saints are spiritual creatures that will rule from heaven with Jesus Christ. John the Baptist was a great man, but he will not be a saint. He will dwell on the earth.
Luke 16:16
John the Baptist preached the coming of the Messiah. Jesus Christ preached the coming of the new kingdom and how to be part of it. In this verse, to “press” means to work toward.
Revelation 14:1-4
Saints are comprised of people who once lived on the earth.
Revelation 20:4-6
Saints will rule with Christ, and judgment will be given to them.
Daniel 7:18, 27
The kingdom is given to the saints, and will last forever.
