I understand why evil people or non believers would be shut out of a beautiful life with Jehovah but were only 144,000 ( out of 5 billion plus x many deceased and not yet born) designed to be devout enough to earn that place, and, as I have said why would anyone join when the odds are so lottery like.
I am not being rude. I just do not get it.
(2Thes1:9)..These very ones will undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction..
(2 Peter 2:3). . .But as for them, the judgment from of old is not moving slowly, and the destruction of them is not slumbering.
(2 Peter 3:7). . .But by the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men.
And faith is the conquest with an end reward for the heavenly Kingdom flock:
(Rev2:26)..And to him that conquers and observes my deeds down to the end I will give authority over the nations. . .
So, we cannot know God's process, we do know that the majority of the centuries of "churches" were tribal war houses, and therefore not true Christians, the popes are examples of men professing Christ, but it is all about themselves, worldly power, and various occult practices "sanctified" by an organized sham and idol engineering global, as an example.
We know that as well, was foretold:
(2 Thessalonians 2:3). . .Let no one seduce YOU in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction.
And it includes the metaphysics and magi of mainstream Xtendom as an institution which continues to serve the war houses, and to teach the opposite of what the bible teaches.
This in itself would require exposure in all fairness of God's warning, and actually helps people compare these mass confusions against one clear truth for a global witness, then the end would come, after Jehovah's witness work is complete:
(Matt24:14)..And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.
So it takes time, but not that long in the overall 6000 year issues raided in Eden concerning God's sovereign rights.
