The Tribes Of Israel Are Sealed And The Gentiles Are Saved

Isaiah 11 is such an amazing chapter, as Isaiah’s prophesy is specifically speaking about the gathering of Israel and how the gentiles will be redeemed by the blood of Jesus in the last days. You wouldn’t know this just by reading Isaiah 11, but by using this chapter in conjunction with Revelation 7, everything comes to life. So let’s read Isaiah and see how it relates to Revelation. Starting with verse 10 in Isaiah, it reads, 1“in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.” As we learned previously in this chapter, the root of Jesse is referring to Jesus. Now having this knowledge should help us understand what we just read. In the last days, Jesus shall be known to everyone and his believers, outside of the Jews, will seek Him. They shall find comfort and peace with the Lord. What He has done for them means everything. They are forgiven through His blood. The Lord is glorious and the faithful praise His holy Name.

As we’ve learned, God does not only love the Jewish people but also the Gentiles. Every Gentile that also believes in Jesus will be saved. Now speaking of the Jews, they are will be gathered in, in the last days. Of which the gathering has already started. There are now many Messianic Jews that have come to faith in Christ. This is great news, as they will finally know their Messiah and King. Isaiah reads, 1“the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” Now remember the 1“four corners of the earth” for this is very important. It signifies God gathering the tribes of Israel from all around the world. Speaking of the deliverance of the Jews, Isaiah said that it will be , “like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

We are living in the times when God has manifested himself to the Jews. Even from every tribe of Israel, that was scattered, God has made Himself known unto them. Speaking of this, John said that he 3“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.” So again, we hear of the four corners of the earth. About all the ends of the earth, John speaks of a great gathering. He said, 3“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.” So out of all the tribes, a great number of God’s people were chosen to be His followers. One key term here is sealed. When God seals people with the Holy Spirit, their salvation is secure. Paul also said, 2“in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” What a blessing to see God’s people know Him and be saved.

Lastly, I will return to the redemption of the Gentiles. Because we are of them and believe in Jesus, we are saved. God has redeemed all those that seek Him. And speaking of their blessings in heaven, John saw, 3“a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.” When speaking of these people my heart begins to burst inside with joy. For I love to know of so many people being saved. Now John didn’t know who these people were at first but the angel later explained and said that, 3“these are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” So before the coming of Jesus, these believers remained faithful, even until the end. They did not simply believe for a time but came out of the tribulation time, having believed and served the Lord with all their hearts.

Now to everyone that continues in the faith, even in persecution, will reap many blessings in heaven. To understand what blessings these are, we will read more from Revelation, through John, the Apostle. He said, speaking of the redeemed, 3“therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.” One great blessing is to be in the presence of God, forever in heaven. They dwell with Him, in his temple. And while there, so much more is taking place. John recorded, 3“they shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” Wow, what a great blessing from God to no longer have any pains or sorrows. Even Jesus our Lord is there to wipe away our tears and allow us to drink from the living waters. In this place will be the tribes of Israel that were sealed along with the Gentiles that believed. What a glorious time this will be.

Let us pray:
Lord I pray that every believer will continue in the faith, even until the end. May they never lose hope in Your promises. Lead us from temptation, so that Satan will not have a hold of our lives. Help us have courage to fight against all fear and doubt. Build us up, so that persecution will not lead us away from You but only make us stronger. It is a blessing to believe in You and to follow You, Lord. Even unto the ends of the earth, will I go. Whatever You would have me, I will do it. I am Your servant and to do Your will brings me the greatest joy of all. You are my delight and I love You. When I seek You, there is so much I learn. Your counsel is so wise that it is hard to take it all in. It helps when I just sit and ponder upon Your words, that they may sink deep inside my soul. Yes Lord, I am grateful to know You and to be forgiven. Thank You for taking upon Yourself my sins. I am so blessed to have Your blood cover me. I am no longer covered in sin but am surrounded by Your love. You are so kind and also so just. You could have given up on me a long time ago, but Your hope remained. Thank You Lord. For You, I will do all things. I can’t wait for the day to be with You, forever in heaven. All my days will I serve You and praise Your holy Name, for You are worthy. Nothing is more glorious than to be in Your presence. All the praises to You, Jesus. I say these things in Your Name. Amen.
