666 & REVELATION 7–ARE YOU MARKED BY THE LAMB OR WILL YOU BE MARKED BY THE BEAST?
God knows whom He has chosen. He knows their names, their genealogy, their location, and every detail right down to the genetic code He Himself designed as the author and creator of life. God owns all humans first as their Creator, but here we see that salvation means that His ownership deepens. Here God marks out those He saves by sealing them as those He bought at a price. God purchased these 144,000 Jews, seals them, and they instantly become the bondservants of God.
This is the very same process each of us who have ever been saved has gone through. God seeks us, finds us, convicts us, we respond in faith and He saves us, seals us, and makes us His bondservants.
