Israel and the Last Days-Updates
Those who believe Scripture contains a literal fulfillment of the biblical covenants for the Jewish people and the Land of Israel recognize rebuilding the Temple is part of this promised future. In Jeremiah’s presentation of the New Covenant for Israel, we read:
Behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she shall be called: the LORD is our righteousness.’ For thus says the LORD, ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to prepare sacrifices continually.- Jeremiah 33:14–18, NASB https://www.jewishvoice.org/read/article/update-building-third-temple

THE 144,000 NEW MACCABEES ARE HERE…THEY AWAIT CHRIST THEIR GENERAL
(part 12 of a commentary on the book of Zechariah)
After painting a picture of the glories of the nation of Israel restored to her rightful place as head of the nations in the end times (chapter eight), Zechariah goes on to again point us to the demise of both commercial and religious Babylon that will just precede the Messianic Era. His chapter nine oracle regarding a future destruction of the two-sided Babylonian kingdom will have a near fulfillment in the conquests of Alexander the Great and the descendants of one of his generals, Seleucus. Israel will gain temporary victory over this Greek juggernaut through the amazing exploits of Jewish guerrilla fighters, the Maccabees.
The far fulfillment of this prophecy will occur with the end-times emergence of the New Maccabees, the 144,000 of the book of Revelation. With Christ, they will bring the ages-long Babylonian dream of forever destroying God's people and the city of Jerusalem to its own complete end.
THE 144,000 JEWS OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION
This article will show what we know about the 144,000 Jews of the book of Revelation and how they fit into the end of this Age and in the Millennium.
First, who are the 144,000?
We know that they are 12,000 Jews from each of 12 tribes of Israel listed in Revelation 7:4-8:
- Revelation 7:1-3 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."
- Revelation 7:4-8 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand (144,000) of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: of the tribe of Judah 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 Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed. https://www.rapturebibletruth.com/the-144000-jews-of-the-book-of-revelation.html
