The seal of God in Revelation chapter 7 is not the Passover?
Those who insist that the Seal of God is not the Passover… then what is the seal of God that can save us from the plagues in the last day? Can they answer?
And Why do they not keep the Passover kept by Jesus and the saints of the Early Church?
Passover is the feast that Jesus and His apostles celebrated.
- Mt 26:17-19「On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover.” He replied, “God into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says; My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.」
The Seal of God is absolutely the Passover.
- Rev 7:1-3「After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea of on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: ”Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”」
‘Do not harm the land … until we put a seal’. When they finish the work of sealing God’s servants, the winds will be released and the world will face the disasters. Is there any other law of God, besides the Passover, in which God promises to save His people from disasters? In the old Testament, the Israelites proved they kept the Passover, evidenced by the lamb’s blood marked on their houses. When God struck the land of Egypt with the last disaster, the plague passed over them.
- Ex 12:13「The blood(of the Passover Lamb) will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. no destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.」
The origin of the word ‘Passover’ came from ‘pass’ and ‘over’. What passes over from us? Plague.
The Seal of God that can save us from the last plagues in Revelation 7 is absolutely the Passover. When the four winds at the four corners of the earth are released and the last plagues are spreading throughout the whole word, God’s saints who are sealed will not be harmed. The ‘Seal of God’ in Revelation 7 is the special seal with which we can receive salvation in the last days.
