Revelation Seal Mark
(Revelation 7.1-3)
Page 130

"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)✞

Jesus Baptism Waters

An Ancient Wax Signet Ring SealA seal mark or document seal mark identified and protected its contents from anyone other than the sender and the recipient, in that the receiver would know if the seal had been broken and the information compromised in some way. A document seal might refer to a person or to a will or a title deed. Whatever is written under the wax impression of one's signet ring or stamp was confidential and belonged to that person alone. In the same way, God placed 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 mark 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" was found in the mark of the beast in Revelation 13.16 which read, "It (the beast) 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 placed the people in two very distinct camps, those who were subject to, loved and served Jesus Christ and those who are owned by Satan.✞
