In a vision last week, an unleavened corn wafer imprinted with a blood-red cross was shown. In real life, a box containing the same flat corn wafers had been previously purchased. The primary interpretation was posted in the previous message entitled: “Bread of Life”. But another significant revelation was shown. On the box is also written in a foreign language a word that means: “salted corn” which also means”salted grain.” Again, this refers to the grain offering in Leviticus which always had to be salted. (Lev. 2:13) Although the offering primarily points to Jesus, it also points to a particular latter-day – sealed – New Covenant people who are completely devoted to the Lord and Him Crucified. Significantly, what remained of the salted grain offering was partaken by priests; in this is seen the concealed origin, symbolic revelation and role of this elect latter-day company. (Lev.2:3) The idiom ‘you are what you eat’ applies here. It identifies them as a grain offering, as firstfruits and as priests for a specific future time. Consider that corn which is a grain is also a fruit!
Corn is a seed derived from the flower/ovary of the corn plant,” he says, “so is technically a fruit.” More specifically, corn is a caryopsis, which is a type of fruit in which the seed coat is tightly fused with the pericarp (that’s the fleshy bit, like the part of a peach that you eat) (Source: Popular Science)
In order to understand these firstfruits, it needs to be considered that two questions had been prayerfully posed regarding the 144,000 sealed elect and the 24 elders.
The questions that begged to be answered was the timing of the 144,000 and whether or not the 24 elders formed part of this elect and sealed company. It was brought to prayer because the answers could not be resolved. In accordance with the tenets of the New Covenant, the Holy Spirit answered those questions in an amazing way even before it was asked on a simple box of unleavened bread. (Is.65:24; Jn.16:23)
Following the vision, I searched the writings on the box of unleavened breads for more revelations. Almost instantaneously I noticed that the unit of measurement totalled 144 grams and it contained 24 unleavened breads that were composed of 4 different ingredients. These three numbers together (144, 24 and 4) were not in any way coincidental:
“Then the four living creatures said, Amen. And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshipped Him who lives forever and ever.” (Rev. 5:14)
“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back its four winds so that no wind would blow on land or sea or on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, with the seal of the living God. And 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 sea or trees until we have sealed the foreheads of the servants of our God.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed, 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.” (Rev. 7:1-4)…………“All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God…. (Rev. 7:11)
The open box of salted, unleavened, oven-baked breads suggests that the sealing of the 144,000 is now taking place or is about to take place. I am hearing that it will “Happen”. The unit of measurement of 144 grams and 24 unleavened breads, together, appeared to suggest that the 24 elders will be spirit-filled Believers who will form part of the 144,000 and who will be exempt from the great white throne judgement. (Jn. 5:24-29) And because the 24 elders are already in heaven at the time of the sealing of the 144,000, it can be said that they are presealed Believers who will also come out of the twelve tribes. But I still needed scriptural confirmation that the 24 elders were, in fact, part of the 144,000. Then the answer boomed out of hallowed pages!
The 24 elders are assigned to sing a new song. And Revelation Chapter 14 teaches that no one can sing that new song but the redeemed 144,000 sealed ones! A worshipping, holy song of gratitude proving that they are blood-bought and that they will reign on earth as God’s Priests and Kings (Rev. 5:10) I had found my missing scriptural link!
“Now when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp and golden bowls full of incense which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song saying: Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. (Rev. 5:9-10)
(Because angels are instructed to hold the elements at the four corners of the earth before the sealing takes place, it follows that those who are sealed will be located, indeed, at the four corners of the earth and redeemed from kindreds of people – including those who have been grafted in Israel’s new commonwealth. (Rev. 7:1-4) )
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.” (Rev. 14:2-5)
Although much more can be written about these 144,000 sealed elect, this writer remains within the bounds of the questions posed at the risk of adding or taking away from the Book of Revelation. (Revelation 22:18-29) It bears noting that an untold multitude of faithful Believers will also be sealed by the imprint of the Holy Spirit. (Eph. 4:30) But while many are called, fewer in comparison will be chosen to minister as God’s kings and priests on earth.
The 4 different ingredients listed on the box of unleavened bread further confirm that 4 living creatures – each having different faces – will be instrumental in carrying out GOD’s instructions of divine justice during these prophetic days (Rev. 15:7) The intricate rapport and connection between them and the 24 elders is clearly discerned in the Book of Revelation. (Rev. 4:4-9-10; 7:11; 14:3)
It appears that latter-day prophecies are opening up to confirm the reality of events that are prophesied to “Happen“. Perhaps sooner than we realize….the box has been opened!
