Revelation from the Apocalypse of Elijah
As I was reading the Apocalypse of Elijah I saw something that stood out to me. I love reading the Book of Revelation because it reveals a lot about the end days, the coming of Yahshua and heaven. Below I have provided a section from the Apocalypse of Elijah and I have pointed out something right in the beginning of this book and I will provide scriptures on how it relates to a revealing of Revelation Chapter 7.
The word of YHWH came to me saying, “Son of man, say to his people, ‘why do you add sin to your sins and anger the Lord God who created you “ 2 .Don’t love the world or the things which are in the world, for the boasting of the world and its destruction belong to the devil.3.Remember that the Lord of glory, Who created everything, had mercy upon you so that He might save us from the captivity of this age. 4.For many times the devil desired not to let the sun rise above the earth and not to let the earth yield fruit, since he desires to consume men like a fire which rages in stubble, and he desires to swallow them like water. 5 .Therefore, on account of this, the God of glory had mercy upon us, and He sent His Son to the world so that He might save us from the captivity. 6. He did not inform an angel or an archangel or any principality when He was about to come to us, but He changed Himself to be like a man when He was about to come to us so that He might save use [from flesh]. 7 .Therefore become sons to Him since He is a father to you.8 Remember that He has prepared thrones and crowns for you in heaven, saying, “Everyone who will obey me will receive thrones and crowns among those who are mine.” 9. The Lord said, “I will write my name upon their forehead and I will seal their right hand, and they will not hunger or thirst. 10 Neither will the son of lawlessness prevail over them, nor will the thrones hinder them, but they will walk with the angels up to my city.” 11. Now as for the sinners, they will be shamed and they will not pass by the thrones, but the thrones of death will seize them and rule over them because the angels will not agree with them. 12. They have alienated themselves from His dwellings.
In this section of the Apocalypse of Elijah there is a connection with the Book of Revelation in Ch. 7. In Rev. 7 there is 144,000 from the 12 tribes of Israel that are sealed on their foreheads before any destruction hits the earth. Many people try to figure out if they are part of the 144,000. The Word tells us that they will be sealed and I believe they are being sealed now. In this study the focus will give some revelation on the Sealed Ones VS the Great Multitude. I will also answer the question, “What does it mean to no longer hunger or thirst anymore? For now let’s read the scriptures below.
Revelation Ch. 7:1-8 (KJV)
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.
5 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.
6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
7 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.
8 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.
Verse 9 in the Apocalypse of Elijah states that the ones who are sealed will not hunger or thirst. Now this group who are sealed are a different group from the multitude of people that is seen in another vision in heaven.
Revelation 7: 9- 17 (KJV) says:
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, 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;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they?
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.
15 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.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 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.
Now after reading this vision, the multitude that was seen actually came out of the great tribulation. They had to make themselves clean. In Rev. 7:16 it says they shall hunger no more neither thirst any more. Now could this be a revelation for us because in apocalypse of Elijah, it shows that the ones who were sealed did not hunger or thirst because they were sealed; which could be an indicator that they won’t suffer as the others through the great tribulation because they already cleaned themselves for Yahshua. The sealed people walked with the angels to heaven and the son of lawlessness did not prevail over them. The key point is that once the multitude arrive in heaven they won’t have to hunger or thirst anymore because they will be in the midst of the Lamb (Yahshua). So it’s very important that we seek the Word now and let’s be filled with the Word. Coming soon in another study of the 144,000 and the great multitude. There are so many things that are hidden in the scriptures and we must study so that the mysteries can be revealed. We must seek wisdom to get understanding.
Check out the scriptures below to see that Yahshua is the living water and when we drink of this water we won’t thirst anymore. The sealed people (144,000) have received Yahshua and have made themselves clean. They follow Yahshua and they believe in his Words. Right now many people are not thirsty or hungry for the Word of Yah (God). Majority of the world is rejecting his Word but there will come a time when many will be hungry and thirsty for the Word. A multitude of people will receive Yahshua and they will make it to heaven in the end.
John 4:6-14 (KJV) says:
6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, how is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
So brothers and sisters I don’t know about you but I see a great revelation in these scriptures provided. I see that we must drink the living water which is Yahshua so that we won’t have to thirst anymore. We need to be excited about learning the Word of Yah (God) and be excited to do the Word. If you are a believer in Yahshua then you must be obedient which means you must keep his commandments. Please check out my other study on The Ten Commandments.
Very soon Yahshua will come back and those who have prepared themselves will be invited to the wedding in heaven. At this time we must all reflect on our lives to see if it lines up with the Word. When you read and study the Word, you will always learn something new. The scriptures that you already know you will always remember them because it will be written on your heart. Yahshua is the light of the world and he came to redeem us and bring us into the Kingdom. Let’s focus on eating the Word.
