    Its down a little ways but they are prophetic singers of jewish decent.

    If you read Revelation correctly it will make sense. Mike Bickle has studied the end times for many many yrs and God has given him incredible insight to the mysteries in the Book of Revelation. There are loads of articles however do not just take his word for it... study it out yourself as well!

  • The Bible clearly describes them as a group of believers who are saved during the tribulation (12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel). They are males and virgins. These are just part of the people in heaven. More people will be saved during the Tribulation. And they will all join the multitudes of people who go to heaven and live for eternity with the Lord.

    "The book of Revelation, chapter 14:1-5 makes it clear though that these Jews, will all be males and they will all be virgins [or “celibates” –NASB]."

  • It will be Jews that are converted when the Tribulation starts. They will go around spreading God's word. The true Christians will have already been taken up to Heaven with Jesus.

  • They will not all be Jews, that simply is not true. The ten northern tribes never practiced the religion of Judaism and never called themselves Jews. Saxon is the translation of "Isaac's sons", they were removed by God from the region before Judaism was brought back from Babylon by the Pharisees. Get it right if you are going to explain. Judaism comes from Babylon at a later time, long after "Isaac's sons" were gone. Much of the tribe of Judah did not return either after the Babylonian captivity, many of there descendants are the Ethiopian Jews that strictly follow the Torah and have long rejected the Talmud. The Ethiopian Jews are shunned by traditional Jews for rejecting the Babylonian Talmud which most modern day Jews follow. Judaism is what Jesus was condemning the Pharisees for, following the words of men rather than the law of God. He never practiced Judaism.
