Who are the 144,000 spoken of in Revelation ? Thank you.
Joseph Smith was asked the same question (along with a whole slew of questions on the meaning of Revelation). He replied (and it is canonized in scripture):
“We are to understand that those [144,000] who are sealed are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer the everlasting gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth, to bring as many as will come to the church of the Firstborn” (D&C 77:11).
