Seeing then that we have a Great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our Profession (that Christ is our Lord and Savior). For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; BUT WAS IN ALL POINTS TEMPTED LIKE AS WE ARE, yet (He did it) without sin. Let us therefore come Boldly unto the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain Mercy, and find Grace to help in time of need (that we not fall in times of trials and temptations). Hebrews 4:14-16. These (144,000) are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which Follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. (Wherever the Holy Spirit leads them). These were redeemed from among men, being the Firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. AND IN THEIR MOUTH WAS FOUND NO GUILE: FOR THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT before the Throne of God. Revelation 14:4-5. These 144,000 Jewish Evangelists are not Super Christians, just Christians totally, fully and completely Sold Out to Christ BY CHOICE. They shall HUNGER no more, neither THIRST any more; neither shall the SUN LIGHT on them, nor any HEAT. Revelation 7:16. Yes, these Believers will suffer thirst, sun and heat along with many others in the coming times, whenever that is. Here's the point. These people are an example of what Totally Following Christ CAN look like, ON THIS EARTH. Can today's Christians Desire to Grow to anything like these people? Yes, to have this Desire anchored in your spirit from the Lord is the start, then to daily, even moment by moment, Grow in Obedience to each urging of the Holy Spirit as you learn to hear that Still Small Voice leading you closer and closer to Christ. DON'T DESPAIR AND DON'T GIVE UP when you fall or fail, get back up, ask for Forgiveness, and Keep On Growing in Christ. The 144,000 are the illustration, Christ is the Pure and Holy Example, so Grow all you can until Christ calls you Home to Glory where you will see Him, and, Be Blessed.
