Would We Escape?

In the book of Revelation, God places His mark upon the forehead of 144 thousand Jewish believers, commanding His angels not to harm them (Revelation 7:3, 9:4).

But this is not the first time God places His mark on those who are His prior to His coming judgment.

The story is found in the book of Ezekiel. Ezekiel is given a vision of God’s upcoming judgment upon Jerusalem. But before God sends in His executioner He sends in His holy scribe to place a mark on the foreheads “of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it” (Ezekiel 9:4-6).

Afterwards God commanded the executioners to go and completely slay everyone who didn’t have the mark.

God marks those who are His. In Ezekiel’s vision we see that the mark is given to those who will weep and mourn over the sin that is found in God’s people.

God marks those who feel the same way as He feels, and whose hearts are broken with what breaks His heart, that is, over the sin that is so prevalent.

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9a).

The eyes of the Lord are still searching today for those who will weep and mourn over the sins of the nation and over the sins of His church; those whose hearts are breaking with what breaks the heart of God.

“So I sought for a man … (to) stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one” (Ezekiel 22:30).

And so, if God were to send His holy scribe today to put a mark on those who weep and mourn over the sins of the people, and if afterwards He then sent in His executioner, would we escape?
