Part 8 - Do Not Be Deceived - How Many Will Die at The Judgment
A look at The numbers – How Many Will Die at The Judgment
It is impossible to say how many will actually inherit the earth and eternal life at the Judgment seat of God at the end of this age, which is coming soon. But we can look at the estimates and get an idea of
a minimum and a maximum number of both, expected survivors and deaths. Any way you look at it is is an amazing almost unbelievable number that will perish because they do not follow the scripture admonition “do not be deceived”. The intention of this article IS NOT to SCARE you as the apostate fire and brimstone preachers do, but to show you the seriousness of the soon coming days and what it means to you and me.
We will look at the information available from scripture and then use the highest possible and the lowest probable numbers that we can arrive at by using scripture, for the length of life, number of children assumed, length of generation etc. This information on the numbers is arrived at by taking an average from all the practical numbers available.
Necessary Information about the End and Judgment
Scripture gives us the information we need to determine the percentage of those alive that will be saved. And from that we can get a minimum and a maximum number of deaths and salvations.
Matt 24:36-40 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
2 Peter 2:4-10 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds) — 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed.
Note that these are examples of what to expect at the end of this age when all man that have ever lived will face God at the judgment seat at the great white throne judgment. No man can actually say the exact numbers unless the Holy Spirit reveals it to him. I do not have that actual information. But using the estimates we can see the seriousness of the issue.
It says clearly, using 2 examples, that there is no rapture of the saints, they will be protected as were Noah and Lot and inherit the earth. It also says that God is saving the unrighteous for the judgment, to be cast into the lake of fire and destroyed so there will BE NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS left to again pollute the things of God. God cleansed the earth of unrighteousness with the flood in Noah's day and gave man a second chance. This time will be the final cleansing of earth and now is the last chance for man to regain his birthright of eternal life. ALL UNRIGHTEOUS and UNRIGHTEOUSNESS will be cast into the lake of fire and destroyed by the fire. (thus the earth is cleansed by fire , it is not destroyed by fire as many teach) This time there will be NO MORE CHANCES, this is it, either you become a true disciple of Christ now before judgment by doing all He requires to have your name written in His book of Life giving you entry into God's eternal kingdom on the new earth or you will be destroyed in the lake of fire.
So lets take a look at the numbers.
The current world population is approximately 7.6 Billion.
The minimum population at the time of Noah is estimated at about 10 Million.
The Maximum at over 10 Billion.
God gave us a formula when He told us that “Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”.
If we take the estimated minimum population in Noah's day versus the number that survived the flood we get a percentage of the number saved. The estimated population is 10, 000,000 multiplied by the percentage saved is 6. 6 of 10 million were alive after the flood at a very conservative figure.
Now today we know very accurately the number of lives on the earth. It is approx 7.6 billion.
If we multiply that number by the percentage from that day “as it was in Noah's day,” we get an approximate number of the lives to be saved at the judgment.
7,600,000,000 x .0000006 we get a number of 4560 lives.
If we use the higher estimated number for Noah's day, which is certainly possible. We get this number.
7,600,000,000 x .000006 we get a number of 45,600 lives.
Even if we are off by only a little, say we use .00006 then that is still only 456, 000
Now this is a relative number for comparison and there is no way to prove the numbers but is we add in another important scripture or two it can get rather worrisome to those that really care.
Matt 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Luke 13:23-30 And He said to them, 24 "Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25 When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer and say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are from,' 26 then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.' 27 But He will say, 'I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.' 28 There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out. 29 They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last."
Sc ripure says,There are few that will find the narrow gate and difficult path that leads to the eternal kingdom of God.
When the door (gate)is shut, at the return of Christ, it is too late there are no more chances, there will be none allowed whose names have not been previously written in the Lamb's book of life..
No one knows for sure how many will enter but why would you not follow ALL THE ADMONITIONS in scripture and take a chance? Especially the ones that have to do with “Do NOT BE Deceived”, “Test All Things To See IF They Be Of God”. These warnings are a serious matter and are taken lightly by most professing to be of Christ, But then, the vast majority professing to be of Christ are NOT disciples of Christ, they are disciples of the churches of man, christians, mans version of God's people, which are headed by satan. There is only ONE MAN that can write your name in the book, NO OTHER MAN, no church, no denomination, NOTHING and no one else can write your name there not even God Himself can do it. AND only a true disciple of Christ that does ALL that Christ requires of His disciples can make a disciple of Christ. Only the Holy Spirit of God can do it and ONLY true disciples og Christ are possessed by the Holy Spirit. Church men are not.
Any man that tries to be the head of anything pertaining to God in this age of Christ the Lord is not a disciple of Christ and can only make disciples of what he is. Only those that follow all that Christ requires are anointed by the Holy Spirit to make disciples of Christ. All others bring the confusion and division that God hates. They are satan's helpers because they try to serve two masters, their church system and their god which makes them unstable in all their ways according to scripture. In other words, because no man can serve two masters, they actually serve the one that is in their best interest which is their church that gives them praise and honor of man and money etc. So their god ends up to be satan. God HATES division and confusion and will not go where they are. But the false holy spirit from its god satan is there..
Many that read this think I am too tough on the church system but these are not my words, they are the word of God according to scripture and the Holy Spirit. And I am being easy on them. God says they are going to be cast into the lake of fire to destruction, that is their chosen lot.
Eph 1:20-23 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
Col 1:17-18 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
1 Cor 11:3-4 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
You have the scriptures available, not the bibles with their doctrines of man added, but the scriptures.
The Interlinear bible and there are a couple of others give word for word translation and of course if you are filled with the Holy Spirit of God, (not the false holy spirit of the church system), as you must be to be a disciple of Christ then you have access to ALL truth By asking the Holy Spirit of God that was sent and is here to teach us all truth,
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ
This is why the Holy spirit is sent to teach us all truth. You ARE NOT SUPPOSED THE BELIEVE THE TEACHINGS OF ANY MAN, including me, UNLESS and UNTIL the Holy Spirit of God has confirmed it to YOU as truth. There is NO OTHER SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH.
Many do not understand the reason God sends us a NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH. Many false prophets teach that the earth is destroyed by fire, but that is a lie from their father satan. The earth is cleansed by fire as I explained above. The scriptures say this earth and heaven have passed away and God sends a new heaven and earth. The reason this is necessary is because this one has been so polluted that God cannot live on it and He is going to live one earth with His sons forever after the judgment. Remember also, God Cursed the earth in Genesis.
Rev 21:1-5 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
This is meant as a wake up call. It is a warning to all that have a desire for the truth at any cost be be awake and aware, the time is soon to be. Not designed as a scare tactic but as an act of love by telling you the truth of scripture, contrary to the words of apostate men that falsely claim to be God's agents on the earth. THEY ARE NOT, Jesus Christ IS and He is waiting for YOU to Join Him through the hard to find narrow gate (only found with the aid of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God) and along the difficult path that leads to citizenship in the eternal kingdom of God. Do not miss it.
YOU can attend the church of your choice led by men and end up in the lake of fire dead and gone forevermore or you can become a disciple of Christ, a living stone in HIS Church and live forever with God and ALL his sons in HIS eternal Kingdom.
Which group will you be in at judgment, it is YOUR CHOICE.
