Today in our study we will be taking a look at a mysterious group of people known as the 144,000. The Jehovah Witnesses teach that only 144,000 people will go to heaven, and that they have been assigned the task of finding and discipling these chosen ones. Of course they are wrong, because they have no scriptural basis for such teaching.
So if the 144,000 aren’t Jehovah’s Witnesses, just who are they? We’ll try to answer that question today as we look the first part of Revelation 7, and I don’t think we will have too much trouble identifying these people if we stay true to the text.
