And when Jesus opened the next seal, I heard another one of the animals say, Come and see. I saw a red horse go out and the one sitting on it was given power to take away the quiet peace from the earth so there would be fighting everywhere and the people would be killing each other. A great big sword was given to that one.
And I saw another angel coming from the east who was carrying the marker of the Living God. He yelled really loud to the four angels that were going to hurt the ground and the sea, Don’t hurt the world or the ocean or the trees yet. Wait until we have sealed with the marker of God, His servants on their foreheads so they won’t be hurt at all.
144,000 of all the families of Israel were marked and sealed. 12,000 were marked from the family of Judah and 12,000 were marked from the family of Reuben, and 12,000 from each of the families, from Gad and Asher and Napthali and Manasseh and Simeon and the family of Levi, and the family of Issacher and Zebulon, and the family of Joseph, and 12,000 from the family of Benjamin.
