1SG Rev. 7:1-3. In the last days God will send a special message to all the
world that will place the seal of God on the foreheads of His servants.
2SG 1 Kings 21:8. Every nation in the world has its seal. The seal of any
nation is the sign of its authority. The seal of God is the sign of the authority of Jehovah,
the only true God and supreme ruler of all.
3SG Ps 121:2. The Lord Jehovah is identified as the only true God and ruler
of all by the fact that He is the Creator of all.
4SG Ps. 96:5. We know that the God of heaven is the only true God because He is
the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He alone has creative power while none of the
so-called gods of the heathen have any creative power.
5SG Jer 10:10-12. Those false gods are the gods that have not made the heaven
and the earth, while the true and living God is manifest and established forever as the One
who made heaven and earth. Acts 14:15; Jonah 1:9. Since the authority of Jehovah as the only
true God and ruler of all is based on His creatorship, the seal of God must be the sign of
God as Creator.
6SG Ex. 31:16,17. God has appointed the seventh-day Sabbath to stand as the sign
of His creative power in making the world in six ordinary twenty-four hour days; therefore
the seventh-day Sabbath is the sign of God as the Creator.
7SG Ex. 31:13. Since it takes the same divine power to save a man from sin as
it did to create him in the beginning, the seventh-day Sabbath, the sign of the Lord Christ
as Creator of the world in six days also becomes the sign of the Lord Christ as man's only
Saviour from sin and as his Sanctifier. Since the seventh-day Sabbath is the sign of God as
the Creator and only true God, and the sign of the Lord Christ as the only Saviour and
Sanctifier, the Sabbath then must be the seal of the living God.
8SG Ex. 20:11. On a notary's seal you will find three things: his name, his
title as notary, and the territory where he is empowered to take acknowledgments. The fourth
commandment is the only one of the Ten Commandments which contains these three things in
reference to God. In the Sabbath commandment we find: (1) God's name--"Lord"; (2) His
distinguishing title as the only true God--the "Lord" that made the heaven and the earth, the
Creator; (3) the territory over which He rules--the heaven and the earth.
9SG Eze. 20:12. God gave the Sabbath to be His sign as the only true God and
Sanctifier, so it must be the seal of the living God. The keeping of the seventh day, instead
of being opposed to God's saving grace, is actually a sign of His saving grace and sanctifying
10SG Eze. 20:20. The Sabbath becomes God's sign or seal upon you only as you
actually hallow it in your life from week to week. The seal is placed on the forehead. The
forehead represents the mind. When you remember the Sabbath to keep it holy (Ex 20:8), that
will put God's sign or seal on our forehead. By keeping the seventh-day Sabbath we show that
we worship the true God, who made the world in six days, and that we accept the power of that
same Lord Christ to save us from sin and sanctify us to His service.
11SG Rev. 14:1. The Father's name is His character. Ex 34:5-7. Those who receive
the seal of God on the forehead will be those who surrendered all to do God's will, so that
their heart and mind will be brought into conformity to the character of God.
12SG Eze. 9:1-6. When the last plague came on Egypt--the death of the
first-born--the only ones who were saved from that plague were those who had the mark of
blood on the doors of their houses; so the only ones who will be protected from the seven
last plagues will be those who have the seal of God on their foreheads.
