Probably Elijah (the man never died), Moses (he too has a mysterious grave), Another man from the times of Adam the 1st man to never die (cant remember his name), I am thinking mostly all the guys with mysterious death or no deaths at all, as well as these prophets who saw these things like Isaiah and John himself and others.

Matthew 19:28: Jesus said to them(Apostles), “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

This would account for 12 of the 24 thrones, mentioned in Rev 4, who are to judge the 12 Tribes of Israel(144,000). Some believe that the 144,000 is the same group as the 24 elders but the scriptures never mention 144,000 thrones and 144,000 people with 144,000 crowns on their heads. In fact the 144,000 group is standing in front of the 24 elders singing a song only THEY, the 144,000,can master.

My husband told my children the 24 elders is the 12 apostle and 12 tribes of Israel.. I’m still searching for a right answer hope you can help me with the correct answer

Hello my friend. Some people believe these twenty-four elders represent Israel, but at the time of this vision, Israel as a whole nation had not yet been redeemed. The elders cannot represent tribulation saints for the same reason—not all had yet been converted at the time of John’s vision. The most likely option is that the elders represent the raptured Church which sings songs of redemption (Revelation 5:8-10). They wear the crowns of victory and have gone to the place prepared for them by their Redeemer (John 14:1-4), so the 24 elders represent the church…12 being a number of authority and may represent the Old Testament saints (12) and the New Testament saints (12). That is what most scholars believe.

I heard just last night, from an 85 year old evangelist, that theologians have told him it will probably be a rotation of saints, so that we all will get a chance to sit and worship with God and Jesus. Several theologians and pastors had that same answer. Other than that I don’t know.

How could it be the Apostles, was John seeing himself seated as an elder would he not have mentioned that?

Jack Wellman May 9, 2019 at 2:09 pm

Hello Debra. Jesus said the apostles will be pillars in the New Jerusalem and will sit and be judges of the nation, so it is possible, but John was not able to identify them.

Kimberly Craig February 15, 2020 at 10:35 pm

I honestly don’t believe John would have recognized himself because remember everyone receives a new glorified body. He was seeing these elders in their new glorified heavenly state!

Jack Wellman January 16, 2020 at 10:28 am
