The Anti-Christ & Korach

Alive Into The Pit

Korach's falling away led him to public rebellion against Moshe & HaShem. As a result, Korach is judged with a unique judgment as B'Midbar 16:29-30 states

"If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me. But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD. And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods."

The beast and the false prophet will also fall into the pit alive as Revelations 19:20 states

"the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."

The beast and the false prophet also lead a public rebellion that denies the power and the authority of HaShem. Therefore, the beast and the false prophet are judged with the same unique judgment that Korach received. The beast, the false prophet, and Korach's group are the only recorded occurrences of individuals descending into the pit without first experiencing physical death. Committing blasphemy against the power and the authority of HaShem destroys these individuals from within. The result, of these individuals spiritual death, brought about their judgment before they had experienced physical death.

Prophecy Reveals 144,000 Obedient Followers

144,000 Foreheads Marked

Prophecy unfolds in repeating cycles. A prophecy that appears fulfilled once often appears again. For example Ezekiel prophesied the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem. However, the destruction of Jerusalem was also fulfilled by the Romans in about 79 C.E. and Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies in the future as Zechariah 14 describes. Prophecies reoccur to confirm God's word. In other words, G-D creates multiple witnesses in the hope that humanity will listen. This gives humanity more than one opportunity to repent. Unfortunately, people don't listen or change therefore history repeats itself.

One repeating prophecy that is often overlooked is the seal on the forehead of the servants of G-D. The seal of the 144,000 in the book of revelation as stated Revelation 7:2-8

"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, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 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. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand."

Knowing that armies will surround Jerusalem in the future it does not take much research to discover a time in the past when God also sealed His people on their foreheads. Ezekiel 9:3-7 states

"And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city."

Ezekiel confirms the people of God were seal on the forehead before the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians. Ezekiel also makes it clear that the individuals sealed in his prophecy were those living in Jerusalem. This is also the case with the 144.000 mentioned in the book of revelation. The 12,000 from each tribe are specifically residents of Jerusalem and the ones who are totally committed to serving the God of Israel. In fact, in Revelation 14:4 it states that the individuals with the seal of God in their foreheads follow the lamb where ever he leads Revelation 14:4 "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth." This passage is similar to the parallel prophecy of Ezekiel 9:4 which states "Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof." during Ezekiel's prophecy the individuals marked on the forehead were the people who truly worship the god of Israel, in the future the 144,000 with the mark of God on there forehead are the ones who "follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth". So is it possible for 144,000 righteous individuals to currently be in Jerusalem. As of 2012 Jerusalem had a population of 801,000. 801,000 is surly a large enough number to have a worthy remnant of 144,000 with the mark of God on their foreheads.
