Question
Hello DW

I have a question for you I understand it's impossible to answer really but I would like your opinion. How many do you think will survive armageddon?

Answer
Hello mate

Thanks for writing

WOW what a question!!

I really don't know, but here are some things I do know. It will be a great crowd that no man can number. I should imagine running into the millions 4 maybe, 5 million pure guess of course!!

I know that those who are deceived won't be there just like Eve was deceived, why because something about them is missing. What is missing is different in every case.

For this man he was deceived by riches

Mark 10:

"20 The man said to him: “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth on.” 21 Jesus looked at him and felt love for him and said, “One thing is missing about you: Go, sell what things you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come be my follower.” 22 But he grew sad at the answer and went away grieved, for he had many possessions"

Mark 4:

19"the deceptive power of riches"

Eve was deceived by the Devil what was missing about her was she was unable to prevent herself going from this sinful thought.

Gen 3:

6 "Consequently, the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was something desirable to the eyes, yes, the tree was pleasing to look at........

to committing this sin

So she began taking of its fruit and eating it"

Yes Eve had the sinful thought before she manifested that sin.(Think about this scriptural lesson)

Now I also know most who are not deceived will also not be there, the deliberately wicked, the deliberately disobedient, the deliberate blasphemers. These are like the Pharisees. They are also just like Adam because Adam's sin was willful too.

1 Tim 2:

14" Also, Adam was not deceived"

Paul said this about them

2 Tim 4:

"according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled"

So do you want to get out of bed early and go knocking on complete strangers doors, go to the meeting straight after a long and stressful day at work or study the Bible when your favourite T.V programs on?? OR do you want to say "I'm saved" and then just do whatever you like, because it doesn't matter ??

Who's having there ear's tickled us or Christendom??

So they won't be there.

I also know this.

Jehovah has no problem doing this when such a thing becomes necessary.

"and I will judge between a sheep and a sheep"

and he also has no problem doing this when such a thing becomes necessary

Ezekiel 34:

2 "Woe to the shepherds of Israel, who have been feeding themselves! Is it not the flock that the shepherds should feed?"

Now of course we know these things have happened in the past, but the lesson is that no one can or will escape Jehovah's judgement. No matter who you think you are.

1 Cor 10:

12 "So let the one who thinks he is standing beware that he does not fall"

Hope this answered your question

Take Care

Expertise

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.

Experience

The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

Organizations
The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

Education/Credentials
False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
