The number 144,000 has religious significance for Christians because of its use in the Book of Revelation, where it appears three times:
Revelation 7:3–8 (ESV)
saying: "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the servants of God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:
12,000 from the tribe of Judah were sealed,
12,000 from the tribe of Reuben,
12,000 from the tribe of Gad,
12,000 from the tribe of Asher,
12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali,
12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh,
12,000 from the tribe of Simeon,
12,000 from the tribe of Levi,
12,000 from the tribe of Issachar,
12,000 from the tribe of Zebulun,
12,000 from the tribe of Joseph,
12,000 from the tribe of Benjamin were sealed.

Lets imagine 12000 represents seconds. 12000 is equal to 200 minutes and 3,33333333 hours

144000 is equal to 2400 minutes. 2400 is equal to 40 hours. We see the number 40 represented some times in the bible.

-Rain fell for "forty days and forty nights" during the Flood. (Genesis 7:4)

-The Hebrew people lived in the Sinai desert for "forty years". This period of years represents the time it takes for a new generation to arise. (Numbers 32:13)

Moses' life is divided into three 40-year segments, separated by his growing to adulthood, fleeing from Egypt, and his return to lead his people out. (Acts 7:23,30,36)


40 hours is equal to 3,333333333 of a 12 hour day

If we devide 40 hours by 24 hours you get 1,666666666


If you devide the number of years in the prececcion of the equinoxes 25920 by 43200 (number of seconds in 12 hours) you also get 1,6666666

In the Book of Revelation, the number 144000 appears three times. 144000 x 3 = 432000. This is exactly the numbers in the Kali Yuga, described in the Sanskrit scriptures.

We also find this numbers in Norse mythology. At the time of Ragnarok 800 warriors will walk side by side out of each of the 540 doors in Valhalla. The total number of arriors are 432000.
