Can you know if you are one of the 144,000 now? If not when?

It is after the 6th seal is open men hide themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, from the wrath of the Lamb! Knowing Rev.6:17 “For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

It is at this point in the tribulation things are stepped up. The Lord begins an evangelizing campaign by these Jewish believers giving people a choice before the mark of the Beast takes place.

Rev.7:2-4 “Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,            saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

 We then find 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes are sealed by the angel from heaven. This takes place during the Tribulation, not before. So anyone who says they are part of the 144,000 now are deceived; they must prove we are at the 6th seal being opened.  Since we do not have records for all the tribes one would not know the tribe they are from as God is the ONLY one who has them sealed by the angel.  

And this seal Gr. sphragizo is to stamp (with a signet or private mark) for security or preservation (literally or figuratively); by implication, to keep secret, to attest: upon the forehead. They will be able to tell you what this seal is or show it.  For it tell us in Rev 14:1Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads.

Furthermore, Rev. 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands”

We find these are the martyrs that are killed, Rev. 7:14 "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Heavenly Jerusalem carries the same theme of numbers Rev 21:14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

The number 144,000 is also used of the New Jerusalem which is “city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.” (Rev. 21:16-18)

Rev. 21:19 “The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones:  likened to the high priests garment

Rev. 21:22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.”
