In the new book, Who Are the 144,000 Really? Understanding the First Fruits of the Redeemed, ($ 14.99, paperback, 9781626978058; $ 7.99, e-book, 9781626978065) author Pastor John Carpenter explicitly sets the record straight on misconcluded notions from the book of Revelation. As the title suggests, this book specifically highlights the controversial topic of the 144,000 people mentioned in Revelation, chapters seven and fourteen. The author tackles false, popular beliefs with biblical references and reasoning that aligns with Scripture. Overall, readers will walk away with a deeper understanding of Jesus second coming and Judgment Day.
I believe the foolish virgins are the ones waiting for a sign before making a decision for Christ in that area of thinking that there will be 144,000 super evangelists during the Tribulation, because it gives people a reason to not make a decision for Christ today, states the author. Today is the day of salvation.
