There are two groups of 144000.
The first group of 144000 in Revelations Chapter 7 are Jews taken from the 12 tribes of Israel. They will be on Earth during the Millennium along with the Sheep Nations who survive Armageddon. They will repopulate the Earth to fulfill the promises that God made to the Jews in the Old Testament. During the Millennium, Christ will reign in Heaven with his Bride composed of all believers that will be resurrected or raptured to be with Him when he comes again.
The second group of 144000 in Revelation Chapter 14 are Christians. They are raptured to go to heaven to be with Christ before the Great Tribulation starts. They are the first fruits from among the Living (Christ was the first fruit from the dead). The Great Multitude of believers from every tribe, nation and tongue are not raptured until the end of the Great Tribuation when the Seventh Seal is opened and the Seventh Trumpet sounds
