Affected Teaching
The believers are so pure that not even guile, which is craftiness or deceit, is found in their mouth and because of them being redeemed by the blood of the Lamb they are without any fault before the throne of God. (Rom 8:33 KJV) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. The 144,000 in this chapter represent all the believers who have been saved throughout time and as they are all assembled in heaven before the throne of God, they are declared absolutely pure. They have the right to be in Heaven because the Lord Jesus Christ redeemed each one with His blood and washed them thoroughly clean. The unbelievers will stand before the throne of God and will be judged for their sins but here the believers are before the throne of God, not for judgment, but for the fact that this is their eternal home. The throne of God represents the abode of Heaven for the believers. The modern versions omit this glorious fact that they are standing in heaven completely blameless. Let’s stay with the King James Bible as it contains all the glorious truths for the believer’s future.
