Who are the 144,000 Redeemed 

The Almighty YAHUWEH, in His unmerited mercy, did not leave His people orphan regarding His plan of salvation, neither did HE leave one stone unturned in His verdict in respect to bringing His chosen back to Paradise. However, He had revealed all facts to the warning of those who have ears. HE declared the end from the beginning- to strengthen and encourage His elects to hold on to their crown: His Name and His Word of patience to the very end Rev 3: 8-12. Equally, HE allotted all religious minded to powerful delusion for rejecting the truth while holding unto the works of their hand; their man-made tradition and rituals Mark 7:6-9/YeremeYahu 10:8-9

Who believed our report? 

This is the truth, and nothing but the truth. The Almighty has coherently spoken, and His report is trustworthy, and will not return to Him void without accomplishing what it is sent for YeshaYahu 55:9-11. And nothing would change His immigration policy, nor alter it, even if the whole world will not believe His report, which is the case now. Even from the time of Adam and Eve, people are decisive in taking the Word of YAHUWEH their Maker for granted or in vain. Nevertheless, HE reserved for His pleasure 144000 elects who trembles at His commands and loves His Name even unto death Yesha 66:1-5
And this is what the Almighty revealed regarding those He had chosen to return to the Garden of Eden: the 144,000 redeemed. 

Revelation 13:4-8
And they (the whole world) worshipped the dragon (Satan) which gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And it was given to him a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies, and power was given to him to continue forty-two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against El, to blaspheme His Name (YHWH) and His Tabernacle, and those dwelling in heaven. And it was given to him to make war with the set-apart ones (believers), and to overcome them. And power was given to him over every tribe, tongues and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb from the foundation of the world.

Revelation 13:16-18
And he (Satan) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred and sixty six.Note: the verse continued in
Revelation 14:1-4And I looked and saw a Lamb (Yahushua Messiah) standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Name and His Father's Name {Yahushua means YAHUWEH is my Savior} 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 sound of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders. And no one was able to learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand (144000) who were redeemed from the earth.

Revelation 7:2-4
And I saw another messenger of El coming up from the rising of the sun, holding the seal of the living El. And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers of El to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, "Do not harm the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees until we have sealed the servants of our El upon their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand (144000), sealed out of the tribes of the children of Yisra'El: of the tribe of Yahudah twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Yissachar twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Zebulon twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Yoseph twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Benyamin twelve thousand were sealed.

Yacob was the son of Yisaac, and Yisaac was the son of Abraham the chosen one Gen 12. And YAHUWEH changed Yacob's name to Yisra'ElGen 32:24-30/Gen 35:9-13. Yisra'El means the victorious or overcoming princes of ElRev 3:8-12/Exodus 19:5-6.
. Yacob or Yisra'El had 12 sons Gen 49:1-24, which became the 12 tribes of Yisra'El mentioned in Rev 7:2-4, which is also the names of the 12 districts of the heavenly City of New Yahusalem Rev 21:9-18
Note: YAHUWEH is the El of session, number, and perfect order. HE is not an author of confusion. Through His Eternal Word, had revealed all His plans to those who love Him by obeying His commandment. On the other hand, had made His Scripture a mystery to dogs and pigs: that seeing they see but will not perceive, and hearing they will hear but not understand; oh perverse generation who runs after feel-good of their hearts instead of the love of the truth, which gives Life Mark 7:6.   

Who are the 144,000 redeemed from the earth? 

The 144,000 people mentioned in Revelation 14:1 and Revelation 7:1-8 are the total number of sons of YAHUWEH or the people chosen from the earth to return to the Garden of Eden, which is renamed to New Yahusalem Rev 21:1-2
Mind you that Rev 13:8 explicitly forewarned that Satan would deceive the entire earth, whereas, Rev 14:1 confirmed that only 144000 will bear the Name of YAHUWEH: the Mark/Seal of salvation in their forehead, also mentioned in Rev 22:4

Note: Satan previously had tricked the third of the population of the messengers of YAHUWEH in heaven into disobedience. But it is not the case for the sons of Adam on earth, because he tricked the entire earth into disobedience against the commands of YAHUWEH- who demands perfect submission and obedience to His commands, which is Eternal Life Yh 12:50
Note: this present earth is a place of trial Matt 4:1-11, purification Dani'El 12:10, and overcoming of the world Rev 3:12 before the final judgment Rev 20:6-15
When Satan and his fallen messengers rebelled in heaven, they were cast out to dwell on earth for 6000 years, which is 6 days in the sight of YAHUWEH. And the earth and its predominance was given to Satan to rule over Luke 4:6. Moreover, every tribe, tongue, and nation was given onto him to overcome to trial every person that walks in the face of the earth Rev 13:5-18/ Yahuchanan 18:36/ Yahuchanan 17:11-16.

Let he that has an ear hear 

Yahushua the Messiah made very clear that salvation is only for Yahudim.
Yahuchanan 4:21-22Yahushua said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father on this mountain, nor in Yahusalem. You worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because salvation is of the Yahudim."

Yahudim means true worshipers of YAHUWEH, or YAHUWEH's people who are called or identified by His Name Rev 14:1.

the Israelites who rejected the Name of YAHUWEH, nor did not continue congregating His Name as YAHUWEH Almighty had ordered in Deut 12:1-13/ Matt 18:20 started calling themselves Jews in 2nd century BCE after rejecting to be called by the Name of YAHUWEH.

also, the New Covenant "Yahudim" means followers of Yahushua, for Yahushua means YAHUWEH is my Savior. Thus, the New Covenant Yahudim is: YAHUWEH's race of people {sons} who are identified by His Name; following Yahushua Messiah wherever He leads them. This Yahudim is the spiritual Yisra'El, not natural Yisra'El Rev 2:9.

Only 144,000 Yahudim or the followers of Yahushua will be redeemed through the Name of YAHUWEH; bearing the seal of the Name of YAHUWEH Rev 14:1, Rev 7:3, Rev 9:4, Ezeki'El 9:4, Rev 22:4 confirmed. They are also called "spiritual Yisra'El" which means overcame prince of El mentioned in Rev 7:2-4.

The Almighty YAHUWEH disowned the physical Yisra'El or the nation of Yisra'El when they disregarded His orders by refusing to receive His begotten Son/Word Yahushua the Messiah when He came to earth to bring the good news Yh 1:12
YAHUWEH had warned Yisra'El through Moshe and said in Deut 18:18-19, "I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that anyone who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name Yh 17:12/Yh 5:43, I shall require it of him." Acts 2:22-23
Then, Yahushua the anointed Messenger from YAHUWEH came to earth with the good news; bearing the Name of YAHUWEH Yh 5:43/ Matt 23:39, nevertheless, His own did not receive His Name nor His report, instead, they plotted and killed Him. Consequently, YAHUWEH rejected them as well, and rejected the country of physical Yisra'El. Forty years after the death of Yahushua the Messiah, the nation of Yisra'El was destroyed, and given to nations (Gentiles). Therefore, the Gentiles who received the Name of Yahushua and believe His report are grafted into the Household of YAHUWEH; among His people called by His Name Roman 11. As a result, Gentiles believers become part of the twelve tribes of spiritual Yisra'El or the Yahudim through their engagement with Yahushua the anointed Messenger from YAHUWEH. 

The Prove

The evidence that only 144,000 will be saved, and shall return to the Garden of Eden which is renamed to New Yahusalem is: one, the Almighty YAHUWEH said it. Second, look at the size of the heavenly New Yahusalem: it is only 1500 square miles. 

Revelation 21:9-17

And one of the seven messengers of El who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and spoke with me, saying, "Come, I shall show you the bride, the Lamb's wife." And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the set-apart Yahusalem, descending out of the heaven from El, having the esteem of El, and her light was a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal, and having a great and high wall, having the twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers of El, and names written on them, which are those of the twelve tribes of children of Yisra'El: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. And the wall of the city had twelve foundation, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he who spoke with me had a golden measuring rod, to measure the city, and its gates, and its wall. And the city lies four-cornered, its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the rod: twelve thousand stadia (1500 square miles) - the length, and the breadth, and the height of it are equal

Narrow Path

Yahushua the Messiah strongly adjured His followers to strive to enter the kingdom of heaven through the narrow and hard-pressed path, where only few ventures in, for there, is the way to heaven. Furthermore, He also warned them to avoid the wide and easy path, where you find many people, for that is the way to hell MatthYahu 7:13-14

Yahushua the Messiah asked, if He returns to earth in His second coming: will He find faith on earth? Meaning will He find anyone who still believe in His Name and in His commands Yahuchanan 1:10-12/ Rev 3:8-12/ Yahuchanan 17:3-6. Because He knew that Satan trails behind Him, waiting for Him to complete His work on earth and depart; and when He is departed, Satan will plant weeds to overshadow the wheat in the same field Yahushua planted Matt 13:24-30, and will destroy the true Faith (religion) Yahushua had established upon the foundation of His own Name 1 Corinth 10-11.

Revelation 13:5
testified that power was given to Satan to make war with the true believers and overcome them. Meaning that Satan was allowed to destroy the Faith Yahushua had set-up, and then establish his own religion Rev 17 and Rev 18 called Babylon the great.
Dani'EL 9:25-27
also confirmed that when Yahushua the Prince departs, Satan will cause the true worship of YAHUWEH to cease by substituting the true Faith to Abomination which causes the desolation of the Spirit of YAHUWEH, similar to Yisra'El's abomination Yezeki'EL 8:1-18.
That Abomination of desolation Matt 24:5-15 or Babylon the great is the Roman Church. For shortly after Yahushua was impaled, and the city of Yahusalem destroyed; in 325 CE, emperor Constantine the great beast reform Mithraism to take over the true and faithful Faith Yahushua Messiah had established upon His Commands and upon the Name of YAHUWEH Yh 17:3-6/ Matt 18:20. Also, Satan hijacked the Hebrew Scripture and entwined Mithraic-Christianity and Messianic Faith. That is why you see some strange false doctrines or foul spirits Rev 18:2 such as Mithraic Sunday worship instead of Sabbath, Mithraic Christmas instead of the feast of Tabernacle, Mithraic Hesus instead of Yahushua; Christ: meaning anointed Sun messenger or Heliodromus instead of Messiah, Easter instead of Passover, Babylonian chief deity 'God' instead of YAHUWEH the true Creator, and so on. Furthermore, the domination of "Babylon the great counterfeit religion will last until the very end, to be overthrown on the return of Yahushua the true Messiah, and the elects or the true believers will be given pre-eminence over the Church of Babylon. However, right now, they are given authority to overpower the elects, for it is their time of popularity; to shine for a time and a time and half Dani'EL 7:23-27

Many are called but few are chosen

After the fall of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, the Almighty divided the people of the earth into two races were namely:
Cain's race: also called the unrighteous race or the world, which claimed most of the population of humanity: ratio 99.9%.
Ab'EL's/Seth race: also called the righteous race or the elects, which is made up of few: ratio 2 out of 600,000. Less than 1% of the population of the earth. Adam was the first elect, Eve, followed by Ab'El, Seth, Enoch, Noah, and so on.

As in the days of Noah, out of all the population of the earth, only eight people were elected to be saved: Noah and his family Gen 6:6-13

As in the days of Abraham, among all the people of the earth; among Abraham's clan and family, Abraham was elected to be saved Gen 12

As in the days of Moshe the prophet, the Almighty YAHUWEH went to Egypt (synonym: the world) redeemed 600,000 men. However, only 2 men were saved: Yahushua the son of Nun (synonym: a type of Savior who will take his people to the promised land) and Caleb (which represents few courageous righteous men). 2 out of 600,000 men.
Note: After Moshe and Yahushua the son of Nun died, Yisra'El returned to the treasure of their heart: to the worshiping of Baal, God, and Sun deity Judges 2:8-14. 

As in the days of Yahushua the Messiah, out of all His people Yisra'El, only 120 people were elected and were saved Acts 1:12-15. Although, Yahushua was the greatest preacher ever walked in the face of the earth, greater than Noah, Moshe and all the prophets combined. Although He did many signs and wonders, however, His own people did not believe in Him, except those YAHUWEH had given to Him Yahuchanan 17:6-12

Nevertheless, on the arrival of the Comforter Yh 16:7 The Great Spirit of YAHUWEH- on the Feast of the Weeks, where Hebrews from all over the world gather to celebrate the Feast; 3000 people were saved Acts 2:1-41. However, few years after the death of Yahushua the Messiah, in 70 CE, Yisra'El was destroyed, and the community of Yahushua Acts 2: 42-47 were scattered all over the world. And that set a perfect opportunity for Satan to establish his own counterfeit religion in Rome, to substitute the True and Faithful religion Yahushua had set-up Matt 18:20/ Yh 17:3-6. And it was given to him to do so, to this very day. Consequently, salvation work abruptly halted, and the knowledge of the truth was shut up for a time and a time and half or forty-two spiritual months or two thousand three hundred spiritual days Dani'El 12:9-13. After the time, at the latter days of the end, the knowledge of the Kingdom, once disclosed will be released once again, and many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increased, before the end of the era comes in swift Dani'El 12:4.  

Why were 144000 chosen

The Almighty YAHUWEH knew the entire human race and the end of all things from foundation of the earth, because HE is Eternity. HE is in the end as much as HE is in the beginning. And that is the essence and meaning of His Name "YAHUWEH" (I AM that I AM, or I change not, or I AM ETERNITY). For that reason, HE spoke of what HE had foreseen, been in eternity, and it was written in the Scripture of Truth; to strengthen His elects in their long suffering; persisting in the work and suffering of the Kingdom patiently, knowing that their rewards awaits for them. 

1. The elects were chosen because of their hunger and thirst for truth and righteousness.

2. Rev 14: 4
These are they would not defy themselves with women; for they were virgins.Note: Adam fell because of a woman. The sons of El and the Watchers fell because of the daughters of men. Therefore, anyone willing to enter the kingdom of heaven must overcome the lust of women. 
They are those following the Lamb wherever He leads them. Note:Yh 10:28 Yahushua said, "My sheep hear My Voice, and I know them, and they follow Me, and I will give them eternal life" Yh 10:5 stranger's voice they will not follow.
. And in their mouth was found no falsehood, for they are blameless before the throne of El.Note: unlike the coward religious minded, because of fear of rejection, chooses to disregard the truth while holding unto the ecumenical vain tradition of men, to fit in and be accepted by all Yahuchanan 12:37-43/ Yahuchanan 5:39-44

3. They were chosen because they received the Name of Yahushua and obeyed His commandments as YAHUWEH ordered 1 Yahuchanan 3:23/ Yh 1:12/ Rev 3:8-12/ Rev 22:14

They were chosen because they are willing to forsake ALL the pleasures and the ways of this world; forsaken all the traditions of men, forsaken father, mother, brother and sister, children, wife, including their own life for the sake of Kingdom of Heaven. Picking up their stake, they followed the Messiah wherever He leads themLuke 14:26-33/ MatthYahu 19:27-30

Note:The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man having found it, hid, and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he had and bought it.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant person, seeking fine pearls, who, when he found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it
MatthYahu 13:44-46.
The kingdom of heaven is like a lady seeking a husband, although, she has many male friends and admirers, however, when she found her true love, abandons all her other male friends to join in her new love.
Therefore, if you are not willing to give up all you have, for the kingdom of heaven, also to possess the truth, then yo will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. 

1 Yahuchanan 5:1-5
Everyone who believes that Yahushua is the Messiah has been born of El, and everyone who loves the One bringing forth also loves the one having been born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of El, when we love El and guard His commands. For this is the love for El, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy, because everyone having been born of El overcomes the world. And this is the overcoming that has overcomes the world: our belief. Who are the one who overcomes the world but he who believes that Yahushua is the Son of El?1 Yahuchanan 5:13

                                                                                The Way to Heaven 

. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a  needle than anyone in this generation to be saved. That is, it is impossible for anyone to be saved in this generation, due to the extensive damage Satan has done to the truth Yahushua the Messiah had laid down two thousand and some years ago, according to secular calendar. 
. It is easier to climb to the moon than it is anyone to be elected to be saved. 
The Path which leads to Life is narrower than the Scripture explained. It is up to the unmerited mercy of YAHUWEH to save those HE has chosen  because they love His Name and obey His commands; forsaken all the things of this world, including their own life to follow after His truth.  

Let he that has ear, hear the voice of Noah warning once again
Imprisoned for lack 
    of Knowledge
