And I heard number of those who were sealed: and they were a hundred and forty four thousand (144000) that were sealed of all the children of Isreal.
According to the book of revelation chapter 7 verse 4 before the great tribulation which is expected to last for seven years after the rapture has taken place God will seal some number of Jews with his mark that will be saved at the last days. And according to the Bible these 144000 Jews are the elect who will be taken to heaven before the great tribulation.
In his commentary, Methodist theologian, Adam Clarke wrote; the one hundred and forty four thousand souls include all the Jews with twelve thousand each from the twelve tribes of Isreal, but this must be only a certain number for an uncertain number for it is not logic that out of the millions of Jews across the world only a few that is a hundred and forty four thousand will be saved.
Per the explanations given by Adam Clarke and what the book of revelation chapter 7 verse 4 stipulates then no Christian nor Muslim can make it to heaven since the tribulation period will be extremely difficult to endure.
Now the big question is, is this 144000 persons the total number of Jews that will be saved or it is the overall number of souls that will be saved or it is just symbolic which shouldn't be taken literally?
