One hundred forty-four thousand is the number of the elect.
What exactly does that mean and how does God select?
Put your mind on the things of God, then you'll understand.
These men have been chosen since the begining and shaped by God's own hand.
They endure every trial He leads them through and have even come close to death,
but more importantly they follow Christ wherever He has them go.
They obey His every command, even if it means their death.
It is through these men that many people will join the Army of the LORD.
And when the battle is finally done, they can rejoice with one accord.
