Revelation Seal Mark (Revelation 7.1-3)

"After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea, 'Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.'" (Revelation 7.1-3)✞

An Ancient Wax Signet Ring SealA seal mark or document seal mark identifies and protects its contents whether referring to a person or to a will or a title deed. Whatever is written under the wax impression of one's signet ring is confidential and belongs to that person alone. In the same way, God places his own seal mark on the forehead of his faithful followers, identifying them as his and guaranteeing his care over their souls.

Signet Ring

Jesus Baptism WatersAs circumcision was considered the seal mark of the loyal Jew, and as baptism was considered the seal mark of the Christian, so the seal in the end times signifies and protects God's faithful followers. Our physical bodies may be beaten, maimed, or even destroyed, but nothing can take away the seal placed on our souls by God. We are protected because we are supremely valuable to him.

Followers Identifying Them

Alpha seal markA parallel to the "Revelation seal mark" is found in the mark of the beast in Revelation 13.16 which reads, "It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads." The mark of God and that of Satan place the people in two very distinct camps, those who are subject to and love and serve Jesus Christ and those who are owned by Satan.✞
