Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth for ever.
I Peter 1:23
It's all about the Holy Word of God!
Beyond the highway of holiness, beyond much tribulation,
beyond the law and on the other side of our cross,
Can Christ redeem a Gentile from the law of God they never knew?
Miss the Word/Law and you Miss Redemption!
It is the schoolmaster alone, the law, who brings us unto Christ.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ.
Every good and wonderful promise in the Book was made for the sinner, as Jesus came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. And fewthere be who truly believe and take up their cross, and give up all of this world for our Savior. God the Father gave His only begotten Son for the sinner, and the world, as always, rejects Him.
THE HUNDRED FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND
God's Spiritual Jews! A Remnant! The short work on earth!
The Few There Be!
... they sung as it were a new song before the throne
Our cross is the work of Christ in the flesh for the flesh as the Holy Word of God or the law, the one and only instrument that can cleanse and transform a hell bound sinner into an undefiled virgin, one with no guile found in their mouth, one forgiven and forgotten, completely pardoned from all sin, one suitable unto perfection to be the bride of Christ.
144,000 heirs redeemed from among men,
Revelation 14:1-5, And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
SPIRITUAL MOUNT SION IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD
God the Father, the Son, the Saints (heirs), the Angels
The Government body of the Kingdoms of God

The countless people in white robes no man could number are not heirs.
(These are the unholy who slept in their graves and were judged and won eternal life)
Revelation 7:9, 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;
Of all our world only a hundred forty and four thousand wins redemption, so says the Scripture! Are you a Believer of the Holy Word of God? Are you one of the few there beor are you one of the cross-less masses who does not believe the Holy Word of God? They look at their numbers and declare this cannot be, for we, the masses, are far more than this tiny little number. However, Jesus said, few there be! Six hundred thousand men crossed the Red Sea on dry land, 40 years later two went across Jordan. Jesus, God Himself, worked this world hard for three years and gathered one hundred and twenty. We must believe from the heart, and few there be that find it.
