Rev 7, Where Are We?

Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

In Rev 5, we see redeemed men in heaven, in Rev 6 we see the wrath of God, here in Rev 7 what do we see? We see the servants of God being sealed in their foreheads, wait a minute though, last time I checked, we, the church are servants of God too right? Why is it that the only servants of God being sealed are 144,000 from all the tribes of the children of Israel? Not a single member of the church sealed? NOT ONE. Why? The true church is in heaven. To hammer this point home, IMMEDIATELY after mentioning the sealing of the 144,000 the Holy Spirit shows us a picture of the raptured church in heaven. How much more plain could He make it? What does this mean? It means be ready, it means be watching. Time is short, the day to perfect holiness is today. Yesterday is gone, and nobody promised us we'll see tomorrow. Make the most of today for the days are evil. The grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Pray for all the brothers, Amen
