The 144,000God will put a seal on believers’ forehead to show sanctification and ownership. Israel will be commissioned and empowered by the Spirit to preach the gospel. However the seal does not mean they are protected from death, but they are protected from God’s judgment and demonicaffliction. Many believers will suffer dreadful because of Satan and the ungodly. The war between righteousness and wickedness creates “tribulation” with Israel as the people. There is hope in verse 17 “the Lamb shall feed them and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” God will remove all memory of their horriblesuffering. God will comfort them. Babylon the GreatRepresenting the “The mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth” She was not just a harlot but the mother of harlots. The name of Babylon comes from Babel which means unified false religion and rebellion against God. Eternal death is what the prostitute is offering; the

God call us to be separate from this world. Everyone who main concern is money, luxury will weep. God clearly states He hates greed and oppressive power. We are to seek the pleasure and value of Jesus Christ. Test 11.
