THE RISE OF FAITHFUL PROPHETIC WITNESSES – The 144000 BURNINIG AND SHINING LIGHTS

Before the LORD does anything, HE reveals and declares it through HIS servants the prophets. Amos 3:7-8 says, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but HE revealeth HIS secret unto his servants the prophets. The LION (i.e. the LION of the tribe of Judah) hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD (i.e. ADONAI ELOHIM) hath spoken, who can but prophesy“.

Therefore thus saith the LORD, “I (i.e. the LORD) AM raising faithful prophetic witnesses of MY WORD in all nations of the world“. Note that the WORD being spoken of here is ‘The WORD of the LORD‘. This is the spoken WORD from the LORD that has the ability to alter creation because HE (i.e. the LORD) upholds (i.e. sustains) all things (i.e. creation) by the WORD of HIS power (Hebrews 1:3). For the world (i.e. creation) was framed (i.e. birthed) by ‘The WORD of the LORD, (Hebrews 11:3) and it can also be altered and sustained by ‘The WORD of the LORD’. This goes further to imply that the visible creation will adjust to accommodate the manifestation of ‘The WORD of the LORD’. Such an occurrence is known as ‘supernatural manifestation (a.k.a. signs and wonders) of ‘The WORD of the LORD’.  

So the LORD is raising prophetic witnesses of HIS ‘creative WORD‘. Joel 2:28-30 tells us that there will be a heavy downpour of the SPIRIT of GOD, and this will lead to an increase in the measure of prophetic manifestations (i.e. prophesying, dreams, and visions) and signs and wonders (supernatural manifestations). So these prophetic witnesses will not just be messengers (i.e. prophets), signs and wonders (i.e. supernatural manifestations) will accompany their ministry of declaring ‘The WORD of the LORD‘, for the LORD will confirm the WORD that HE gives to them to declare with signs and wonders (supernatural manifestations) (Mark 16:20). Except for Samuel, Moses, Elijah and Elisha who were prophetic witnesses of ‘The WORD of the LORD’, every other Old Testament prophet was either a messenger or a seer through whom the LORD declared or revealed HIS word or eternal counsel. In the New Testament, every believer has the potential to become a witness of ‘The WORD of the LORD’ (Acts 1:8).

By reason of the signs and wonders (supernatural manifestations) which will accompany ‘The WORD of the LORD‘ spoken by these prophetic witnesses, people will know that the LORD sent them. So these prophetic witnesses will not just be messengers (i.e. prophets) from the LORD, but they will also be witnesses, for by reason of the signs and wonders (i.e. supernatural manifestations), people will know that ‘The WORD of the LORD‘ that they declare is true and real. A major aspect of the ministry of these prophetic witnesses includes the fact that they would preachThe Gospel of the Kingdom’ to the whole world as a witness before the end comes (Matthew 24:14). Through the ministry of these prophetic witnesses, many shall turn to the LORD and they shall instruct them in the way of righteousness, because the first spiritual characteristics of the kingdom of GOD is righteousness (Romans 14:17, Matthew 6:33). So these prophetic witnesses are kingdom preachers and teachers of righteousness, for they shall preach and teach righteousness because the testimony of the perfected church (i.e. end-time saints) is ‘righteousness’ (Revelation 19:7-8). From my personal communion with the LORD, I noticed that HE calls these prophetic witnesses ‘Light Bearers’, for they shall shine as the brightness of the firmament (i.e. sky) and as stars forever and ever (Daniel 12:3).    

These prophetic witnesses of the WORD of the LORD are the 144000 stated in Revelation 7:1-4. Notice that the 144000 were called servants in verse 3 (i.e. Revelation 7:3), so their ministry will be prophetic and/or apostolic (Revelation 10:7). Also in Revelation 14:1-4, we see that the 144000 were redeemed (i.e. purchased) from mankind as firstfruits to GOD and the LAMB (i.e. JESUS). In other words, they will be GOD’S property, sanctified and set apart for special service to the FATHER and the LORD JESUS. They are GOD’S consecrated servants from among the ‘Spiritual Israel (i.e. all who are born again)’ stationed across every part of the globe. Revelation 14:1-5 and Revelation 7:1-17 gives us a thorough exposition on who these prophetic witnesses (i.e. 144000) are. They (i.e. the 144000 prophetic witnesses) are actually people from different continents and different parts of each continent. Further exposition includes the fact that there are 12000 of these prophetic witnesses in several locations all over the world. A list of these regions and the numerical distribution of these prophetic witnesses are given below.

  • AFRICA (24000 Prophetic Witnesses).

Africa is divided into 2 by the equator so:

  1. The upper part of Africa which is above the equator represents one tribe of the spiritual Israel’ which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  2. The lower part of Africa which is below the equator represents another tribe of the spiritual Israel’ which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • SOUTH AMERICA (12000 Prophetic Witnesses).
  • South America represents one tribe of the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • NORTH AMERICA (12000 Prophetic Witnesses).
  • North America represents another tribe of the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • EUROPE (24000 Prophetic Witnesses).

The European continent is divided into 2, and they include:

  • Eastern Europe represents one tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • Western Europe represents another tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • ASIA (60000 Prophetic Witnesses).

The Asian continent is divided into 5, and they include:

  • Central Asia accounts for one tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • East Asia accounts for another tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • South Asia accounts for another tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • Southeast Asia accounts for another tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • Western Asia accounts for another tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.
  • OCEANIA (12000 Prophetic Witnesses).

The continent of Oceania represents one tribe from the spiritual Israel which has 12000 prophetic witnesses.

This makes a total of 144000 prophetic witnesses in all the regions of the world listed above. Because these witnesses are stationed all over the globe, they will preach the ‘gospel of the kingdom’ to the whole world as a witness before the LORD returns (Matthew 24:14). Finally, I must state that the rising of these prophetic witnesses shall be after the order of Elijah. Malachi 4:5 tells us that Elijah shall come before the great and terrible day of the LORD (i.e. the return of the LORD for judgement). So the spirit of Elijah shall rest upon these 144000 prophetic witnesses as they go about their ministry.

Blessed are you who understands this mystery of the rising prophetic witnesses, for you shall be like the 5 wise virgins who trimmed their lamps, and reserve extra oil as they await the coming of the bridegroom (i.e. the LORD JESUS) (Matthew 25:1-13). The ‘oil’ in the preceding verse of scripture (i.e. Matthew 25:1-13) symbolises ‘faithfulness’ (i.e. being steadfast) to the LORD and HIS kingdom cause, for when the SON of MAN (i.e. JESUS) returns, will HE find ‘faithfulness’ in the earth (Luke 18:8). He that hath an ear, let him hear what the SPIRIT saith unto the churches (Revelation 2:7).
