    Why there will be great tribulation? What will be the cause or origin of the appearance of the great tribulation?
    The answer is in the Word of God, human opinions in accord the spirit of man which is in him is good for nothing.

    The answer of the question is in Daniel 12:v.1 - 1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: ...

    It is Michael, the same that was in Sodom, who is with his sharp Sword-God's Word- to pour severe plagues upon the nations ruled by men guided by the spirit of Devil, and they have already started in accord the Word of God.


    There will be severe punishments, even against powerful nations- Micah 4:v.3-, yeah, only and only punishments, consequently there will be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever will be.

    Be ready. The days will be shortened because there is a deadline to destroy the Devil's world
    (Revelation 11: v.18) and to close the Dispensation of Grace. He that will endure unto the end, the same will be saved.

    Other great happening is determined for this present time. There will be resurrection in this present time, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

    The same thing that brought it here:

    Act 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.
    Act 7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
    Act 7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
    The Stoning of Stephen
    Act 7:54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
    Act 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
    Act 7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
    Act 7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
    Act 7:58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
    Act 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
    Act 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
    Notice, Jesus was seen "standing". Their (the Sanhedrin) time of probation (Daniel 9:24-25, Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city ...; Matthew 18:22 - Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. ) was up:

    Luk_13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:​

    Continuing Acts chapter 7:


    Act 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
    Act 8:2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
    Act 8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.​

    “And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.”
    ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭9:27‬ ‭ASV‬‬


    “Wherefore hear the word of Jehovah, ye scoffers, that rule this people that is in Jerusalem: Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner- stone of sure foundation: he that believeth shall not be in haste.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭28:14-16‬ ‭ASV‬‬

    Very very very good post. The Word is God.

    Hoseas prophesied, saying: Hos.8:v.14 - 14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.

    verse 12 - 12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.

    verse 13 - 13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the Lord accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins:
    they shall return to Egypt. ---> Oh Israel will return to Egypt? Yes, but spiritually Israel has returned to: Hosea 9:v.1 - Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God,.... This prophecy of Hosea brings us a revelation on the why Jerusalem is called now, in the present Dispensation, the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified-Revelation 11:v.8.


    Daniel 10:v.14 - 14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the LATTER DAYS: for yet the vision is for many days.
    verse 12 - ...but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; ...
    verse 20 - Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee?
    and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. ---> We are commeting the happenings of the LATTER DAYS, THE LAST DAYS, so we MUST understanding or discerning that to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come, these two strong ENEMIES are TWO BEASTS, the Beast of Sea-Revelation 13:v.1=-10, and the Beast of the earth - Revelation 13:v.11-18. And the Beast of sea will make WAR against the saints( 13:v.5), but FIRST one of his 7 heads will be wounded to death.Revelation 13:v.3

    21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

    The verse above makes us to remember of the Ark and the days of Noah. As in the days of Noah were, is also now in the coming of JESUS, it means that as in the days that were BEFORE the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, and knew not that the door of the Ark was shut, and the flood came and took them all away; so also now in the coming of the LORD Jesus, the door is already shut by the MASTER of the house BEFORE His coming, as the door of the Ark that God shut it BEFORE the flood, many will seek to enter in, and shall not be able, and then will be revealed who is in and who is out of the Kingdom of God. The parable of the ten virgins is very important to be remembered, after all we are in the time of its LITERAL fulfilment. The believer MUST meditate this and wake up, and remaining awaked.

    Revelation 12:7-17

    7 Next there was a battle in heaven — Mikha’el and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
    8 But it was not strong enough to win, so that there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
    9 The great dragon was thrown out, that ancient serpent, also known as the Devil and Satan [the Adversary], the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.


    10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying,

    “Now have come God’s victory, power and kingship, and the authority of his Messiah;
    because the Accuser of our brothers,
    who accuses them day and night before God, has been thrown out!
    11 “They defeated him because of the Lamb’s blood and because of the message of their witness. Even when facing death
    they did not cling to life.
    12 “Therefore, rejoice, heaven and you who live there! But woe to you, land and sea,
    for the Adversary has come down to you,
    and he is very angry, because he knows that his time is short!”


    13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled down to the earth, he went in pursuit of the woman who had given birth to the male child.
    14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where she is taken care of for a season and two seasons and half a season, away from the serpent’s presence.
    15 The serpent spewed water like a river out of its mouth after the woman, in order to sweep her away in the flood;
    16 but the land came to her rescue — it opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon had spewed out of its mouth.
    17 The dragon was infuriated over the woman and went off to fight the rest of her children, those who obey God’s commands and bear witness to Yeshua.

    18 Then the dragon stood on the seashore;

    28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

    29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

    30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come-
    Luke 20:v.35-36 -the Kingdom of God- eternal life.

    Daniel 12:v.6-13
    6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters...(waters are peoples, and nations, and multitudes, and tongues), How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
    7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

    11 And from the time that the ...abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
    -->1290 days -> 3 years and 7 months - this is the 2nd period of the last week<--

    12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. -->1335 days or 45 days after the end of the AD.
    --> In my vision, this day 1335 is very very significative, it is the great day of the appearance of our LORD Jesus Christ, based mainly in 1Thessalonians 4:v.15-16 combined with 1Corinthians 16:v.24-26, and 2Thessalonians 1:v.7-12 <--- And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.-Revelation 22:v.17

    Amen

    Matthew 21:v.42-46
    42 Jesus said unto the Jews: Did ye never read in the scriptures, The STONE which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

    43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

    44 And whosoever shall fall on this STONE shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to POWDER.

    45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

    46 But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitude, because they took Him for a prophet.

    Isaiah 28:v.17-22 - Continuation of above you have posted


    17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

    18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

    19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

    20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

    21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do His work, His STRANGE WORK; and bring to pass His act, His STRANGE act.

    22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong; for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even DETERMINED upon the WHOLE EARTH.

    Ephesians 1:v.3-5 says:
    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in HEAVENLY PLACES-celestial environments- in Christ:(for example the second Covenant or the New Testament is an heavenly place in Christ created by the Most High God, in whose heaven have lived the God's people in these last 2000 years, the Christian people. By the way, the second Covenant-second heaven or 2nd heavenly place- is much more higher than the first Covenant, the Old Testament)

    4 According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:

    5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

    6 To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.
    (Beloved? read Songs of Solomon 5:v.5-10 about the Church and her beloved).

    That said, we can understand better the battle against the Dragon and his Ministers
    in heavenly places (2Corinthians 11:v.13-15), knowing that the body of the Dragon-or the "spiritual" church of the Dragon- has three parts: 7 heads, and 10 horns, and a TAIL, actually a religious or a spiritual MONSTER that dwell in the present heavenly place where we are serving our LORD yet. Are you ready for this battle? I hope so.

    I will come back later to continue this commentary about your important post.

    Have a peaceful night

    God bless

    What will be the cause, is the struggle between God and His adversary, the devil. Satan is now striving to act as the king of the world, including Christians. With an intensity that is beyond what we can see, he moves to embrace the whole world in his conflict with God. He tries a new deception under the garb of Christianity, he assumes the attributes of a false messiah, and claims to be Christ Himself.

    So many Christians don't know the Word of God, they just follow whatever others tell them or their leaders say, that they will be open to this deception. Gods Word tells us that when it suits Satan's purpose, he will through his deception manifest so great a power under a pretense of what Christianity has awaited that, “if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”

    Matthew 24:24 King James Version (KJV)
    For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    Mark 13:22 King James Version (KJV)
    For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

    2 Corinthians 11:12-14 King James Version (KJV)
    13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    These false apostles and workers will profess faith in the Bible and manifest respect for what passes as "Christianity" and their deceptive work will be accepted as a manifestation of divine power, and they will declare to men and woman unscriptural doctrines and traditions of men, and lead the unprepared to damnation..

    The teachings of these false apostles, deceitful workers, and this false christ will not be in accordance with the Scriptures. But Satan will come strong with all his power to put fear and panic into the world with dark forces even now appearing and drive them into his fold. We see it starting now, and like lemmings the people are being driven to the proverbial cliffs which will be their end.

    But the true people of God will not be misled. and
    will see through the deception, and make a stand, but they are but a few, a remnant. The majority of people will go with this false christ, who is accepted by the leaders and churches of the world, and then Christ Himself will come.

    'The Great Tribulation' is done already, ancient history:

    21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.
    34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished. Mt 24

    22For these are days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
    23 Woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! for there shall be great distress upon the land, and wrath unto this people.
    32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all things be accomplished. Lu 21

    The cause of the great tribulation? "That all things which are written may be fulfilled." It was the logical conclusion to the 'ministration of condemnation':

    18 And if ye will not yet for these things hearken unto me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins.
    21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
    24 then will I also walk contrary unto you; and I will smite you, even I, seven times for your sins.
    28 then I will walk contrary unto you in wrath; and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. Lev 26

    Seven seals, seven trumpets, seven angels, seven bowls, read the curses of Lev 26/Dt 28 (and others) from the OT; the wrath poured out upon 'the land', the judgment of the great Harlot.

    No doubt about it, 1st Century!... Spiritually speaking I wake up to tribulation every day... Constant warfare that won't let me be... Brother Glen:)

    John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    Need to read your Bible....

    Daniel 12:1-2 King James Version (KJV)
    1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
    2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

    Revelation 16 King James Version (KJV)
    1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
    2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
    3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
    4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
    5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
    6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
    7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
    8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
    9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
    10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
    11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
    12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
    15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
    16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
    17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

    Since that was the Tribulation of Jerusalem and the Jews, the rapture is going to just happen, without any tribulation period whatsoever? If that is the case, this year is as good as any, since the church is not facing any tribulation whatsoever. If this is not tribulation, I hate to be around for the real thing. People being martyred is nothing new. It started in the Garden of Eden. Some trust God, while others deem it neccessary to take their life. Has not stopped in 5990 years. The only thing that has not happened is aliens have not attacked and we do not live on the moon or Mars. That would be the only greater tribulation humanity has yet to face.

    Yes, there is a struggle between God and Satan since the beginning. Satan, a former Cherub and a former ruler of the Garden of Eden, was cursed by the Almighty God-Gen.3:v.14-, since the beginning the old serpent is in intense conflict with God as we can see from Genesis to the book of Revelation. In fact, it is not easy to fight against Satan and his messengers, his ministers(2Cor.11:v.13-15), because they are knowledgeable about the Holy Scriptures, they are well formed scholarly. A legion of teologians occupy important positions within Ministries of the churches, as apostles, or Pastors, or Bishops, Evangelists, and so on-(2Cor.11:v.13-15), they has a name that they livest, and are dead (Rev.3:v.1). In the Roman Catholic Church, a pseudo-Christian Church, they exercise functions as a priest, bishop, cardinal, pope, etc., all of them work for the kingdom of Devil, but they claim in their beliefs, and in their doctrines, that they believe in God, and in JESUS, and in the Holy Spirit, and in the Apostles of our LORD JESUS Christ, and so on. Terrible, very terrible.

    The worse will be the appearance of Satan transfigured as a lamb-Revelation 13:v.11-, as a messiah, a false messiah,AN IMPOSTER. By the way, this is the last title he will assume now in the end of the times-(2Thes.2)


    The most important now is to identify who is a true Christian and who is a false Christian, the tares. In fact the work is/will be hard, and with much fight, because these demons will show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect, but they, the tares, will be gathered and will be burned with everlasting fire now, and Satan will be chained and cast into the bottomless pit.

    The body of Satan, I would say -church of Satan-, is formed in three parts: 7 heads, 10 horns and a tail. Our battle in to defeat the 7 heads of the Dragon is more easy than to defeat his TAIL, it is by the TAIL that Satan deceives or tries to deceive the true believers due their knowledge of Scriptures. The 10 horns of the Dragon, they are of the Jewish people, and they will be guided and ruled by the false messiah, AN IMPOSTOR-John 5:v.43.

    The time is of harvest, and the reapers must manifest themselves, fighting for the Kingdom of God-Revelation 11:v.15 and 12:v.7-17. Confirming the souls of the true believers, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. Acts 14:v.22

    May our LORD God bless and keep us, and give us His protection
    Amen

    People no longer are relying on God but instead are looking to man to stop the conflict, stop the hate and anger, and the controversies between races or nations. Well its not going to happen, and we will have a time of trouble that we will not believe..

    God's wrath directed at sinners who refuse to repent.
    It will herald the coming of Jesus Christ who will rule and reign from the seat of His father David at Jerusalem for 1,000 years before the great Judgment.

    Isaiah 13:v.9-11 -
    9 Behold, the Day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate:
    and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
    11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. - Aleluiaaaaa!

    2Thes.1:v.7-10 says:
    7 And to you who are troubled rest with us,
    when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven (heaven?Ephesians1:v.3) with his mighty messengers,
    8 In flaming fire taking
    vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
    9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
    10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that Day. (this Day arrived, that is the seventh and last Day, or Lord's Day, or yet seventh and last millennium, the millennium of Christ, the millennium of Vengeance, the millennium of Judgment, the Judgment Seat of Christ-Rom.14:v.10)




    Revelation 11:v.15-18 combined with Daniel 12:v.1-3
    15 And the seventh angel sounded
    (Daniel 12:v.1-3 combined with 1Thes.4:v.13-16) ; and there were great voices in heaven(heaven?Ephesians 1:v.3), saying, The kingdoms of THIS WORLD(world of Devil) are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

    16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
    (the names of these 24 elders are all of the Old Testament)

    17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast,
    and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

    18 And the nations were angry(
    all nations, include Israel with its false messiah, an IMPOSTER-John 5:v.43), and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be Judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great(Micah 4:v.1); and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

    Daniel 12:v.1-31 And at that time
    (the time is now) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble (due the plagues, and War, and Judgments), such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time (the time is now) thy people shall be delivered (144000-Rev.7), every one that shall be found written in the book.

    2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake
    (there will be resurrection-1Thes.4:v.13-16) some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

    3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

    Matthew 5:v.5 - JESUS said: Blessed are the meek: for t
    hey shall inherit the earth.

    Revelation 7:v.1-4 - The remnant of Israel - the earth-the dry land
    1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

    2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

    3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

    4 And 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.

    Revelation 7:v.9-10 - Gentile peoples exclusively
    9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations(Gentile nations), and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
    10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

    Blessing, and Glory, and Wisdom, and Thanksgiving, and Honour, and Power, and Might, be unto our God for ever and ever.
    Amen.
