1 Thessalonians 1:6-7 KJVS
And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:  So that ye were examples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
They (144,000) will follow The Lord ,as The 232 Very Elect do when the seals are activated in the 144,000 during 666.
They will receive the Word in much affliction.
Revelation 2:8-10 KJVS
“And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
The 144 000 will be true to our Heavenly Father.
1 Thessalonians 1:7-8 KJVS
“So that ye were examples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.  For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.”
Some of the 144,000 also will receive the Holy Spirit .
Matthew 10:17-20 KJVS
“But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.”
I believe this will happen to the 144,000 after they hear the Holy spirit speak through the 232 Very Elect. It will be a chain reaction of Truth even waking most if not all of those of the Seven Churches who will come out of Satan’s confusion when he appears as the Antichrist during 666.
In The Book of Acts shows how the Holy Spirit moved from the 12 Apostles to Paul and to the Gentiles. It is a great example of how it will possibly be when the Power of the Holy Spirit will issue the Latter Rain across the land during the Sixth Seal, Sixth Trump, and the Sixth Vial.
The Very Elect (232) will be delivered up to receive the Latter Rain from the Holy Spirit ; the 144,000 will receive the Latter Rain and the seeds of the Seals of God that are planted in them will activate. The 144,000 will be delivered up also for a testimony, and the Latter Rain through them will continue to fall upon the dry land during 666 waking up whomsoever will out of most if not all of the Seven Churches that will be in Satan’s Babylon . The Latter Rain will fall for all of the Children’s sake.
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 KJVS
For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;  And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.”
The 144,000 and others ( Whomsoever will from most if not all Seven Churches) will turn from their Idols during 666.
Ezekiel 44:10 KJVS
And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel went astray, which went astray away from me after their idols; they shall even bear their iniquity.”
The 144,000 will be used also by the Holy Spirit to pull alot of Gods Children out of ultimate Idol worship during the Sixth Trump, when Satan claims to be Christ.
1 John 5:21 KJVS
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
The 144,000 and whomsoever will wake up out of Satan’s confusion during 666, will wait for the True Christ at the Seventh Trump, and join their fellow brothers and sisters ,the Elect to take part of the First Death and Resurrection.
Revelation 20:4 KJVS “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
