Throne of God is the 144,000. A living, moving Throne - A mobile Throne! :)

Isaiah 16:14 "But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble."

THE THIRD ANGEL'S MESSAGE IS CLOSING: An angel descended and strengthened Christ just as an angel descends and strengthens us today - the 3 Angel's Messages are REVIVED...the OLD SDA BELIEFS are REVIVED!

"I WAS pointed down to the time when the third angel's message was closing. The power of God had rested upon His people; they had accomplished their work and were prepared for the trying

hour

before them. They had received the latter rain, or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, and the living testimony had been revived. The last great warning had sounded everywhere, and it had stirred up and enraged the inhabitants of the earth who would not receive the message." Early Writings, p. 279.1.


God testified that he was putting his name (His NAME is the WORD OF GOD Rev 19:13=His risen quickened living law) in his Temple (144,000) located in Jerusalem. King Solomon, God said, “will build a house for my name” (2 Samuel 7:13, NET). “I will . . . bring them to the place I have chosen for my name to reside” (Nehemiah 1:9, NET).

Matthew 19:28

Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, in the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne (144,000:Bride of Christ), you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones (12 apostles), judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Genesis 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Exodus 11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

Exodus 12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

Satan's Throne are those who keep the commandments/traditions of men instead of the Commandments of God:
  • Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

1 Kings 1:17 And she said unto him, My lord, thou swarest by the Lord thy God unto thine handmaid, saying, Assuredly Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne [144,000=Bride of Christ].

1 Kings 1:46 And also Solomon sitteth on the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of the kingdom.

1 Kings 1:47 And moreover the king's servants came to bless our lord king David, saying, God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] greater than thy throne. And the king bowed himself upon the bed.

1 Kings 1:48 And also thus said the king, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, which hath given one to sit on my throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] this day, mine eyes even seeing it.

Christ is the Son of Man on the Throne of David/Solomon today - the 144,000 who believe that it is CHRIST IN THEM, THE HOPE OF GLORY Col 1:27

1 Kings 2:24 Now therefore, as the Lord liveth, which hath established me, and set me on the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of David my father, and who hath made me an house, as he promised, Adonijah shall be put to death this day.

1 Kings 2:33 Their blood shall therefore return upon the head of Joab, and upon the head of his seed for ever: but upon David, and upon his seed, and upon his house, and upon his throne [144,000=Bride of Christ], shall there be peace for ever from the Lord.

1 Kings 1:30 Even as I sware unto thee by the Lord God of Israel, saying, Assuredly Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] in my stead; even so will I certainly do this day.

1 Kings 1:47 And moreover the king's servants came to bless our lord king David, saying, God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] greater than thy throne. And the king bowed himself upon the bed.

1 Kings 8:25 Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.

1 Kings 10:9 Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.

2 Chronicles 6:10 The Lord therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of Israel, as the Lord promised, and have built the house for the name of the Lord God of Israel.

2 Chronicles 6:16 Now therefore, O Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.

Psalm 45:6 Thy throne [144,000=Bride of Christ], O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne [wicked people who don't keep the Commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus] above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

Jeremiah 43:10 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne  upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.

Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne [144,000=Bride of Christ];

Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne [144,000=Bride of Christ], O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of God.

Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ], which are the seven Spirits of God.

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

"These four living creatures represent four phases of the character of GodThe first was like a lion, the second like a calf, or an ox, as Ezekiel says, the third had the face of a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle (eyes that run to and fro upon the earth looking for one who walks uprightly in Him). This again establishes the fact that when the plan of redemption was laid, all heaven was in unison with the plan. Ezekiel and John, one before Christ's advent, the other after, describe the same thing, showing that the New Testament is but the unfolding of the Old. 

Christ in His life upon earth combined these four natures. He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, of whom it was prophesied, " The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come." As law-giver and governor, Christ represented the kingly nature of the Father. When the tribes were given their places about the sanctuary, Judah was located on the east ; and as they journeyed, the standard of Judah went before them. In the Gospels, Matthew begins with the genealogy, showing the right of Christ to the throne of David. There was, in the life of Emmanuel, a union of divinity with humanity. Christ was the firstborn in heaven; He was likewise the first born of God upon earth, and heir to the Father's throne [144,000=Bride of Christ]. Christ, the firstborn, though the Son of God, was clothed in humanity, and was made perfect through suffering. He took the form of man, and through eternity. He will remain a

Revelation 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne [144,000=Bride of Christ].

Revelation 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ] of God.

Revelation 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne [144,000=Bride of Christ], saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

Jesus is the Son of God. Of the same DNA. Christ is the thought of God made audible to the world. The Son of God is in the express image of His Father as we are to be in the express image of Christ because the Son of God was MADE a quickening Spirit after He rose from the dead in victory over sin for the world to claim as their very own victory over sin. HIS VICTORY IS OURS. The Son of God became the FATHER of a NEW RACE OF PEOPLE! (both divine and human=blended with the seed of God and the seed of man=amalgamation) SIN FREE PEOPLE! See 1 John 3:9 "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his SEED [Son of God is the seed of God] remaineth IN him: and he CANNOT sin, because he is born of God." Sin free because the blood of the Son of God covers our sins if we accept His sacrifice as our very own sacrifice over our sins! This is called RIGHTEOUSNESS by faith! 

Who Was this Man Melchizedek? Melchizedek represents the 144,000, the Bride of Christ, the Queen of Heaven, the City of Truth aka (also known as) the City of Light, Whirring Wheels, Chariots of Fire = the Kings and Priests of the BREAD AND WINE (Genesis 14:18), which the bread and wine are the 3 Angel's messages of Rev 14:6-12 and the fourth angel's message Rev 18:1-5:

Melchizedek, Melkisetek, or Malki Tzedek, is the king of Salem and priest of El Elyon mentioned in the 14th chapter of the Book of Genesis. He brings out bread and wine (Genesis 14:18) and blesses Abram and El Elyon.
Melchizedek a "KING" and "PRIEST" of the Most High God just as the 144,000 are a KING and PRIEST of the Most High God: Genesis 14:18 "And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God."

"The dust and rubbish of error have buried the precious jewels of truth, but the Lord's workers can uncover these treasures, so that thousands will look upon them with delight and awe. Angels of God will be beside the humble worker, giving grace and divine enlightenment, and thousands will be led to pray with David, “Open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” Truths that have been for ages unseen and unheeded, will blaze forth from the illuminated pages of God's holy word. The churches generally that have heard, refused, and trampled upon the truth, will do more wickedly; but “the wise,” [virgins parable will have a honest heart = daily choices] those who are honest, will understand. The book is open, and the words of God reach the hearts of those who desire to know his will. At the loud cry of the angel from heaven who joins the third angel, thousands will awake from the stupor that has held the world for ages, and will see the beauty and value of the truth" RH December 15, 1885, Art. A, par. 15.
Who Was this Man Melchizedek? The 144,000 who bring out the bread and the wine the 3 angel's messages including Rev 18:1-4

A thousand years before, the psalmist had magnified God's favor to Israel in making her holy house His dwelling place: "In Salem also is His tabernacle, and His dwelling place in Zion." He "chose the tribe of Judah, the Mount Zion which He loved. And He built His sanctuary like high palaces." Psalms 76:2; 78:68, 69. The first temple had been erected during the most prosperous period of Israel's history. Vast stores of treasure for this purpose had been collected by King David, and the plans for its construction were made by divine inspiration. 1 Chronicles 28:12, 19. Solomon, the wisest of Israel's monarchs, had completed the work. This temple was the most magnificent building which the world ever saw. Yet the Lord had declared by the prophet Haggai, concerning the second temple: "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former." "I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts." Haggai 2:9, 7.

After the destruction of the temple by Nebuchadnezzar it was rebuilt about five hundred years before the birth of Christ by a people who from a lifelong captivity had returned to a wasted and almost deserted country. There were then among them aged men who had seen the glory of Solomon's temple, and who wept at the foundation of the new building, that it must be so inferior to the former. The feeling that prevailed is forcibly described by the prophet: "Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?" Haggai 2:3; Ezra 3:12. Then was given the promise that the glory of this latter house should be greater than that of the former.

But the second temple had not equaled the first in magnificence; nor was it hallowed by those visible tokens of the divine presence which pertained to the first temple. There was no manifestation of supernatural power to mark its dedication. No cloud of glory was seen to fill the newly erected sanctuary. No fire from heaven descended to consume the sacrifice upon its altar. The Shekinah no longer abode between the cherubim in the most holy place; the ark, the mercy seat, and the tables of the testimony were not to be found therein. No voice sounded from heaven to make known to the inquiring priest the will of Jehovah.

For centuries the Jews had vainly endeavored to show wherein the promise of God given by Haggai had been fulfilled; yet pride and unbelief blinded their minds to the true meaning of the prophet's words. The second temple was not honored with the cloud of Jehovah's glory, but with the living presence of One in whom dwelt the fullness of the Godhead bodily--who was God Himself manifest in the flesh. The "Desire of all nations" had indeed come to His temple when the Man of Nazareth taught and healed in the sacred courts. In the presence of Christ, and in this only, did the second temple exceed the first in glory. But Israel had put from her the proffered Gift of heaven. With the humble Teacher who had that day passed out from its golden gate, the glory had forever departed from the temple. Already were the Saviour's words fulfilled: "Your house is left unto you desolate." Matthew 23:38.

The disciples had been filled with awe and wonder at Christ's prediction of the overthrow of the temple, and they desired to understand more fully the meaning of His words. Wealth, labor, and architectural skill had for more than forty years been freely expended to enhance its splendors. Herod the Great had lavished upon it both Roman wealth and Jewish treasure, and even the emperor of the world had enriched it with his gifts. Massive blocks of white marble, of almost fabulous size, forwarded from Rome for this purpose, formed a part of its structure; and to these the disciples had called the attention of their Master, saying: "See what manner of stones and what buildings are here!" Mark 13:1.

To these words, Jesus made the solemn and startling reply: "Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." Matthew 24:2.

With the overthrow of Jerusalem the disciples associated the events of Christ's personal coming in temporal glory to take the throne of universal empire, to punish the impenitent Jews, and to break from off the nation the Roman yoke. The Lord had told them that He would come the second time. Hence at the mention of judgments upon Jerusalem, their minds reverted to that coming; and as they were gathered about the Saviour upon the Mount of Olives, they asked: "When shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Verse 3.

The future was mercifully veiled from the disciples. Had they at that time fully comprehend the two awful facts--the Redeemer's sufferings and death, and the destruction of their city and temple--they would have been overwhelmed with horror. Christ presented before them an outline of the prominent events to take place before the close of time. His words were not then fully understood; but their meaning was to be unfolded as His people should need the instruction therein given. The prophecy which He uttered was twofold in its meaning; while foreshadowing the destruction of Jerusalem, it prefigured also the terrors of the last great day.

Jesus declared to the listening disciples the judgments that were to fall upon apostate Israel, and especially the retributive vengeance that would come upon them for their rejection and crucifixion of the Messiah. Unmistakable signs would precede the awful climax. The dreaded hour would come suddenly and swiftly. And the Saviour warned His followers: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains." Matthew 24:15, 16; Luke 21:20, 21. When the idolatrous standards of the Romans should be set up in the holy ground, which extended some furlongs outside the city walls, then the followers of Christ were to find safety in flight. When the warning sign should be seen, those who would escape must make no delay. Throughout the land of Judea, as well as in Jerusalem itself, the signal for flight must be immediately obeyed. He who chanced to be upon the housetop must not go down into his house, even to save his most valued treasures. Those who were working in the fields or vineyards must not take time to return for the outer garment laid aside while they should be toiling [SDA's have fallen asleep and are NOT proclaiming the old SDA beliefs found here] in the heat of the day. They [WE] must not hesitate a moment, lest they be involved in the general destruction.

In the reign of Herod, Jerusalem had not only been greatly beautified, but by the erection of towers, walls, and fortresses, adding to the natural strength of its situation, it had been rendered apparently impregnable. He who would at this time have foretold publicly its destruction, would, like Noah in his day, have been called a crazed alarmist. But Christ had said: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35. Because of her sins, wrath had been denounced against Jerusalem, and her stubborn unbelief rendered her doom certain.

The Lord had declared by the prophet Micah: "Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us." Micah 3:9-11. Source: http://whiteestate.org/books/gc/gc1.html


Same as the 144,000 bring out the Bread and the Wine and blesses God's People. See Heb 7:11. Kings and Priests of the New Marriage covenant - the 1843 and 1850 charts - the Three Angel's Messages - the Law of God in living form in the express image of Christ forever - able to stand in the sight of a Holy God without a mediator during the 7 last plagues.

Have you drunk from the well of the early Protestant SDA pioneers books, articles, sermons and tracts and carried the water of life to your now Catholic 501c3 SDA brethren who have been asleep, not studying for themselves the old SDA landmarks, the old SDA beliefs? The majority of SDA's today do not realize how the Jesuit SDA leaders today (2017) have rejected the OLD SDA Protestant doctrines in exchange for Catholic doctrines...Are you your brothers keeper? Have you been diligent in studying the early Protestant SDA pioneers books, articles, sermons and tracts like Sister Ellen White warned us to do??? 

My brethren, the value of the evidences of truth that we have received during the past half century [1840-1906], is above estimate. These evidences are as TREASURE HIDDEN IN A FIELD. Search for them. Study the Bible truths that for fifty years have been calling us out from the world. Present this evidence in clear, plain lines. Those who have been long in the truth and those who have recently received the truth must now dig for the buried heavenly treasure. Let every man work to the point. Study the word of God. Revive the evidences given in the past. “Search the Scriptures,” Christ said; “for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me.” The Review and Herald April 19, 1906 paragraph 13;  Manuscript Releases, vol. 1 [Nos. 19-96], p. 39.2 (Ellen G. White).

TWO DISTINCT BEINGS WHO ARE GOD. UNTO THE SON HE ["God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" 
2 Corinthians 1:3, 1 Cor 8:6: John 20:17 "I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."] SAITH Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Heb 1:8

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep MY words: and MY Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him. John 14:23.

TWO DISTINCT BEINGS who are both "God":
1) "He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath BOTH the Father and the Son." 2 John 1:9

2) If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated BOTH me and my Father. John 15:24

3) Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them BOTH. Zechariah 6:13

4) "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." John 14:23 Notice this verse only mentions two beings.

5) "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it" Revelation 21:22 (KJV).

6) "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof" Revelation 21:23 (KJV).

7) "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb" Revelation 22:1(KJV).

8) "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him" Revelation 22:3 (KJV).

"Christ and the Father covenanted together; and Lucifer, the covering cherub, grew jealous because he was not admitted into the eternal councils of the Two who sat upon the throne" The Story of the Seer of Patmos, p. 217.2 (Stephen N. Haskell). The THRONE OF GOD IS THE 144,000, the BRIDE OF CHRIST the CITY OF TRUTH, the CITY OF LIGHT, the ELECT OF GOD, the REMNANT CHURCH, the CHURCH TRIUMPHANT, WHIRRING WHEELS, CHARIOT OF FIRE, because both the Father and the Son make their abode in the 144,000 who are in the express image of Christ because Christ lives in them by His Holy Spirit which is the living law of God that constrains their daily choices to be like His choices...His characteristics which is conformed perfectly to the WILL OF GOD WHICH IS THE LAW OF GOD, CHRIST IN US. :)

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him. John 14:23.

"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High" Psalms 82:6.

"Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" John 10:34.

"or though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)" 1 Cor 8:5.

"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him" 1 Corinthians 8:6.

There is only ONE GOOD GOD and that is the God and Father of Jesus Christ. Christ was indeed sinless, but HE took our sins upon His body - and HE was MADE to be sin so that we could be made righteous IN HIM. 2 Corinthians 5:21 "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." How could Jesus be the only Wise immortal, invisible God (
Romans 16:27) when He has been MADE to be SIN for us and was seen on earth?  

"If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken [set aside];" John 10:35.

"Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?" John 10:36. (or in NIV "what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?")

However much a shepherd may love his sheep, he loves his sons and daughters more. Jesus is not only our shepherd; He is our "everlasting Father." And He says, "I know Mine own, and Mine own know Me, even as the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father." John 10:14, 15, R.V. What a statement is this!--the only-begotten Son, He who is in the bosom of the Father, He whom God has declared to be "the Man that is My fellow" (Zechariah 13:7),--the communion between Him and the eternal God is taken to represent the communion between Christ and His children on the earth!--The Desire of Ages, p. 483.

It may be objected, If the Father and the Son are TWO DISTINCT BEINGS, do you not, in worshipping the Son and calling him God, break the first commandment of the decalogue? "No; it is the Father's will 'That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father.' We cannot break the commandment and dishonor God by obeying him. The Fathers says of the Son, 'Let all the angels of God worship him.' Should angels refuse to worship the Son, they would rebel against the Father. Children inherit the name of their Father. The Son of God 'hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than' the angels. That name is the name of his Father. The Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever.' Heb.1. The Son is called 'The mighty God.' Isa. 9:6. And when he comes again to earth his waiting people will exclaim, 'This is our God.' Isa. 25:9. It is the will of the Father that we should thus honor the Son. In doing so we render supreme honor to the Father. If we dishonor the Son, we dishonor the Father; for he requires us to honor his son. "But though the Son is called God yet there is a 'God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ' 1Pet. 1:3. Though the Father says to the Son, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever,' yet, that throne is given him of his Father; and because he loved righteousness and hated iniquity, he further says, 'Therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee.' Heb. 1:9. 'God hath made that same Jesus both Lord and Christ.' Acts. 2:36. The Son is 'the everlasting Father,' not of himself, nor of his Father, but of his children. His language is, 'I and the children which God hath given me.' Heb. 2:13.


"When the heart is cleansed from sin, Christ is placed on the throne (our mind, our daily choices) that self-indulgence and love of earthly treasure once occupiedThe image of Christ is seen in the expression of the countenance. The work of sanctification is carried forward in the soul. Self-righteousness is banished. There is seen the putting on of the new man, which after Christ is created in righteousness and true holiness."—The Review and Herald, September 11, 1900.Counsels on Stewardship, p. 27

"The work of sanctification is the work of a lifetime; it must go on continually; but this work cannot go on in the heart while the light on any part of the truth is rejected or neglected. The sanctified soul will not be content to remain in ignorance, but will desire to walk in the light and to seek for greater light. As a miner digs for gold and silver, so the follower of Christ will seek for truth as for hidden treasures, and will press from light to a greater light, ever increasing in knowledge. He will continually grow in grace and in the knowledge of the truth. Self must be overcome. Every defect of character must be discerned in God’s great mirror. We may discover whether or not we are condemned by God’s standard of character."  Selected Messages Book 1, p. 317.2

"you who have followed Me" ...WHERE? Into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven claiming Bible verse promises (1 Pet 1:4) by FAITH..." will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel".

"The throne of God is a throne of life; not an inanimate throne of stones, but a living and moving throne. As John looked, he saw lightnings and heard thunderings and voices. He is viewing the center of creation, — the throne of God. It is the great body of life, the source of all law. By the power which centers there, worlds are held in space, and suns complete their circuits. The power which holds the universe in space, and binds atoms together, emanates [Page 97] from this throne of life. Angels are the ministers sent forth to do the will of Him who sits as King. Some are light-bearers to worlds, others are guardian angels for little children upon earth; but whatever the mission, whether great or small, as measured in humanity's scales, there is the same obedience to the mandates of Jehovah issuing from the presence of the Father, clothed in the reflection of His own light, those messengers disappear like flashes of lightning. The commands given, when spoken in an unknown tongue, sounded like the roar of the sea, or like deep and distant thunder. Other men have heard God speak when His voice sounded like thunder. This was so at Sinai, and also, when, near the close of His ministry, men gathered about Christ in the temple court. To the Son it was the voice of God; to men was thunder. John heard other voices which he understood. He saw also the seven spirits of God, which, in the earthly tabernacle, were typified by the seven lamps upon the golden candlestick. These stood before the throne. This was the ever present, all-pervading Spirit of Jehovah, in which all life has its origin" Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, P. 96-97.

Friends! Please email your thoughts about this page/picture below backed up with quotes about how we really are a part of the God Family...by adoption and marriage. Christ has married the 144,000...those who follow Him by faith into the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary (Rev 14:4) made an alliance with the Human race from God the Father in Heaven, the Sovereign of the Universe through His Son! Gods.....please send an email here with your thoughts about the following picture or a text here: 573-996-6401. Here are four more pages with my study notes about the 144,000 here, here and here and here.


The 144,000 ARE the "Throne" of God. 
The 144,000 ARE the "City of God".
The 144,000 ARE the "City of Light". Rev. 21:23; 
The 144,000 ARE the "New Jerusalem". 

"There came from heaven a mighty angel clothed with a cloud. He was an ambassador from the courts of Jehovah, and his might corresponded 166Margin 181 responded with the court which he represented and the power and extent of the message which he bore. He was resplendent with the glory of the King, from whose presence he came. His face shone with the brightness of the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. Here is a description of CREATIVE POWER; and the King's message which he came to deliver had in it the power, the brilliancy, and the light of Him who spake, and worlds stood forth. But the glory, lest it should dazzle men's eyes, was veiled with a cloud [clouds represent the 144,000 who are being chosen from 1845-1846 until the Ezekiel 9 slaughter upon the House of God = those charged with giving the Third Angel's message Rev 14:9-12]. As God covered Himself with a cloud, lest Israel beholding His brightness should be slain, so the glory of the message of the mighty angel was softened for mortal eyes by the cloud [today's Third Angel's message as given by the 144,000] which clothed his form [Christ living in the midst of the 144,000 = our body clothes the form of Christ in us the Hope of Glory today Col 1:27]. Men living in harmony with their Maker are permitted at times to see the cloud withdrawn, and to behold more and more of His grandeur. In eternity only, the fullness of the message will be comprehendedBreadth of experience in the things of God, measures the ability of each individual to penetrate the cloud." Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, page181

"Angels and beings of unfallen worlds behold the bow, and bow in reverence to the One [Christ] ON the Throne [144,000]" Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, p. 182

"And a rainbow was upon his head." A rainbow encircles the throne of God, but the carnal eye will see little significance in the fact. To the one from whose eyes the veil has dropped, there is an infinite depth of meaning in the rainbow about the angel's head, and the appearance of the bow in our own heavens is, to the spiritual soul, a reminder of the everlasting covenant made in heaven. The divine historian gives the story of the rainbow as it appears in our heavens. Back in eternity, God and Christ covenanted for the redemption of the race, if man should sin after his creation, and so separate from his Maker, and the bow about the throne 167Margin182 was made the token of the covenant. Ever since, it has had its place about the throne, and it became an eternal token of the redemption of man. Angels and beings of unfallen worlds behold the bow, and bow in reverence to the One on the throne" Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, p. 182


Psalm 118:20
This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.

Exodus 19:10
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,

Revelation 21:23
And the city has no need for sun or moon to shine on it, because the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its lamp.

"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life (God and His Son, trunks on either side of the river of life joined at the top, in their mind, claiming the Word of God, Bible verse promises in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven = Your mind, spiritually by FAITH entering the Most Holy STATE, PLACE in the Heavenly Sanctuary), and may enter in through the gates into the city" Revelation 22:14.

Revelation 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (seven churches - seven female servants see Esther 2:9); To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Revelation 7:14
And 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.



Revelation 21:12
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

  • "And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them" Revelation 20:9 KJV. 
  • "They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city (144,000) he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them" Rev 20:9 NIV.

Seer of Patmos by Stephen Nelson Haskell "

"As the Jewish nation, at the first advent, turned from the Saviour, and rejected the Son of God, so many in 1844 crucified the Son of man afresh. But He will one day be lifted up in the eyes of all men; and those who have followed close beside Him, entering by faith, within the second veil, will be seated on thrones and will reign with Him. To the disciples in Gethsemane, was given an opportunity to drink of the cup of which He drank. To the faithful ones in 1844, it was, likewise, given to drink of the cup of the world's scorn. To such is the promise, '' Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Before His second coming, there will be such a time as the world has never seen. God's people will be saved from this; for He will hide them in His ''pavilion." " Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." Patience will be developed by keeping the commandments and by clinging to the faith of Jesus. If He tarry, wait for Him; for He says to Philadelphia, '' Behold, I come quickly." Stephen N. Haskell, Seer of Patmos, P. 85.

Deuteronomy 23:14
"Since the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy; and He must not see anything indecent among you or He will turn away from you.

Psalm 87:2
The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.

Ezekiel 38:9
"You will go up, you will come like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your troops, and many peoples with you."

Ezekiel 38:16
and you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It shall come about in the last days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I am sanctified through you before their eyes, O Gog."

Ezekiel 38:22
"With pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone.

Ezekiel 39:6
"And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the coastlands in safety; and they will know that I am the LORD.

Revelation 13:13
And the second beast performed great signs to cause even fire from heaven to come down to earth in the presence of the people.

"These four living creatures represent four phases of the character of God, The first was like a lion, the second like a calf, or an ox, as Ezekiel says, the third had the face of a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle (eyes that run to and fro upon the earth looking for one who walks uprightly in Him). This again establishes the fact that when the plan of redemption was laid, all heaven was in unison with the plan. Ezekiel and John, one before Christ's advent, the other after, describe the same thing, showing that the New Testament is but the unfolding of the Old. 

Christ in His life upon earth combined these four natures. He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, of whom it was prophesied, " The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come." As law-giver and governor, Christ represented the kingly nature of the Father. When the tribes were given their places about the sanctuary, Judah was located on the east ; and as they journeyed, the standard of Judah went before them. In the Gospels, Matthew begins with the genealogy, showing the right of Christ to the throne of David. There was, in the life of Emmanuel, a union of divinity with humanity. Christ was the firstborn in heaven; He was likewise the first born of God upon earth, and heir to the Father's throne [144,000=Bride of Christ]. Christ, the firstborn, though the Son of God, was clothed in humanity, and was made perfect through suffering. He took the form of man, and through eternity. He will remain a

a man. Every firstborn into human families 
is a type of the offering made by Christ. 
Mark, in his life of Christ, gives the servant 
side. The second face was that of the calf, or the 
ox, the servant of men. This represents the 
priesthood, — the Levites who were chosen for 
service. Christ is both the slain lamb, and the 
priest who ministers in the sanctuary on high. 
He bore the sins of the world in His own body 
on the cross, and the burden crushed Him to 
death. The most exalted position, and the most 
lowly position are here represented, — God in the 
heavens, and God on the cross. As Levites 
always accompanied the tabernacle, so Christ 
ministers constantly to man. Heaven will know 
no other story till man is redeemed from the 
earth. Every beast of burden beneath its load, 
every overworked child of God, is a reminder of 
the Christ who became the servant of men. 
Although He stepped into the lowliest place, yet 
He was still the giver of the law, and He is 
judge of all. The Gospel of Luke describes the 
man side of the Son, giving that part of His life 
work, which appeals most forcibly to the mind of 
man. As God took the form of man, there is, 
in the gift, a promise that man may have the 
nature of his God. The keen eye of the flying 
eagle is taken to represent the searching gaze of 
Him whose eyes, as a flame of fire, '' run to and 
fro throughout the whole earth, strongly to hold 
with them whose heart is perfect toward Him." 
Among the different writers, it was John, the 
beloved disciple, who saw the character of Christ 
portrayed as the glorious Word, One equal with 
the Father in might, power, and glory, and his 
gospel completes the inspired record of the

the divine plan of Creation. The plan of the 
creation of worlds was unfolded, together with 
the order of beings which should people them. 
Angels, as representatives of one order, would 
be ministers of the God of the universe. The 
creation of our own little world, was included in 
the deep-laid plans. The fall of Lucifer was 
foreseen; likewise the possibility of the intro- 
duction of sin, which would mar the perfection 
of the divine handiwork. It was then, in those 
early councils, that Christ's heart of love was 
touched ; and the only begotten Son pledged 
His life to redeem man, should he yield and fall. 
Father and Son, surrounded by impenetrable 
glory, clasped hands. It was in appreciation of 
this offer, that upon Christ was bestowed creative 
power, and the everlasting covenant was made
and henceforth Father and Son, with one mind, 
worked together to complete the work of creation. 
Sacrifice of self for the good of others was the 
foundation of it all. As angels came into being 
at the command of Jehovah, heaven was so 
arranged that the plan of salvation could be read 
by them in everything. The arrangement of the 
angels in their work about the throne, is a 
picture of the redeeming love of God. Angelic 
beings know nothing different. Thus all heaven 
waits for the redemption of man. Even the 
stones which compose the foundation walls, have 
voices which speak of the atonement. The 
colors reflected from every object in the heavenly 
court speak louder of the power and infinite 
mercy of God than mortal tongue can speak. 
Human language cannot tell the story. It is 
beyond description. Throughout eternity, as 
one thing after another reveals the love of the

Father, the redeemed, Hke the Uving creatures 
now about the throne, will sing, *' Holy, holy, 
holy " Upon the face of our own world, is 
reflected this story ; for nature is " the mirror of 
divinity ;" but man is blind, and he mJsinterprets 
those things which point unmistakably to a God 
of love. The purpose of this revelation of Jesus 
Christ to the apostle John is to show men how 
near God is to the creatures of His hand ; that 
Jehovah's voice may be heard explaining the 
plan of Redemption. 

As a token of the covenant be- 
tween Father and Son, the bow was 
placed about the throne. " Justice and 
judgment are the habitation of thy 
throne : mercy and truth shall go be- 
fore thy face," for "mercy and truth 
are met together ; righteousness and 
peace have kissed each other." After 
the flood, the rainbow in the cloud was 
but a faint reflection of the constant 
reminder in 
heaven of the 
everlasting cov- 
enant made for 

the salvation of upon the face of our owii world 

man before the foundation of the world. 

Sin hides God's love from us, shutting out 
from the soul the rays of light from the throne 
of mercy. As the cloud gives forth the rain, 
and the sun, shining through the drops, produces 
the rainbow, so " the tears of the penitent are 
only the rain drops that precede the sunshine of 
holiness." The Sun of Righteousness, shining 
upon the tears of the penitent, makes manifest 
the glory of God, of which ** the bow that is in

Lamentations 2:10
The elders of the daughter of Zion (daughter of 144,000=5 wise virgins?) Sit on the ground, they are silent. They have thrown dust on their heads; They have girded themselves with sackcloth. The virgins of Jerusalem Have bowed their heads to the ground.

Worshiping at our feet...the feet of the 144,000 who have stood stiffly for the truth...the foolish virgins worship at the feet of the 144,000 the Throne of God.

Isaiah 13:19
And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory (character=false doctrines=commandments/traditions of men) of the Chaldeans' pride, Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
