I'm with you that it won't be none that have been taken to Heaven as they have new glorious bodies and cannot die anymore. How could one be killed
who has eternal life!? Beside that I find the living among us have always been His witnesses.
Isa 43:12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD,
that I am God.
Not only that, but what is the reason for this and what happens when these angels turn loose"
Re 7:1 ¶ 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.
Re 7:2 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,
Re 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
Re 7:4 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.
( Note "servants of our God" verse 3 above " )
It is apparant they have been prepared for some task and to all peoples as they are taken out of the 12 tribes of us. I would submit these will be
the ones who will go with the Spirit and Power of Elijah for the second coming as John the Baptist went out in the Spirit and power of Elijah to
herald the first coming of Christ.
When these angels turn it loose then it starts. That is Rev. 11:2 to end and it is finished. He still has His faithful even these last days.
Ro 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
There is more than 144,000 faithful on the earth but these are a special number, "His servants the prophets".
