How many will be in Heaven ?

The Bible gives us a clue below when it says that: "few there be that find it."  We might ask, how few ?

 Since the Bible suggests comparing a narrow way (road) with a broad way (road) to get the answer, let's quantify this example.  The ratio in this example is on the order of 1 in 40 (400 divided by 10).  How many will be in Heaven?  This example would conclude that only about 1 in 40 goes to Heaven. Let's examine another example.  On August 3, 1979, Howard Pittman describes (in his booklet "Placebo") his near-death experience.  While the physicians were working on him, he suffered physical death. The ratio in this example is also 1 in 40 (2000 divided by 50). With the number going to Heaven being so few, it is obviously very dangerous to just "assume" that we are going to Heaven, or to "think" our good deeds have earned us a place in Heaven, in spite of our sins.  It is because of our sins that we need a Savior to forgive our sins and take us to Heaven.  Our good works do not forgive us of our sins.

We are seeking "... the way, which leadeth unto life [leads to eternity in Heaven] ... (Mat 7:14).

At this point we can be thankful for Jesus' disciple, Thomas, who, just like ourselves, is being honest about what he does not know, or is unsure of, and asks the following question:

Jesus answers with a clear and concise statement of the way we get to Heaven, for eternity, where God is: So, "... the way which leads to life (eternity in Heaven) ..." is Jesus, and "... few there be that find it (it being Jesus) (Mat 7:14)."

God's word, via this statement in the Bible, makes it vividly clear that there is no way to eternity in Heaven with God, except "by me" (by Jesus, the Christ (the Messiah, the Saviour), the risen Son of God).

This statement also defines the true Christians, that collectively make up true Christianity ( Christ's / My Congregation (Mat 16:18), aka The / My Church ).  Christ's Congregation (The Church) is composed of All other "ways" are merely man-made Religions and/or denominations, regardless of what they call themselves, and regardless of whether they use the term "christian" or not.
Remember:  Religions, Churches, denominations, sects, etc., don't go to Heaven.
Only individuals go to Heaven(Those born again Christians who overcome.)

With the number going to Heaven being so few (about 1 in 40, which is only about 2.5%), it is obviously very dangerous to just "assume" that we are going to Heaven.

Often times we "assume" that since we belong to a certain "Christian" denomination, that assures our likelihood of spending eternity in Heaven.  Let's look at the denominational statistics to dispel any such false hopes.

33% of the world call themselves "Christians", but only about 2.5% of the world are going to Heaven.

Most "Christian" denominations are either considerably larger than 2.5% of the world's population, or considerably smaller than 2.5% of the world's population.  Therefore, it is very unlikely that a single denomination is the only denomination going to Heaven.  Remember, denominations don't go to Heaven, only individuals go to Heaven.

It is far more likely that some individuals from each denomination are going to Heaven, since it is each individual's seeking and finding Jesus (the way) that leads to spending eternity in Heaven, not a denomination's seeking.  The Bible describes the diversity of those (the 2.5%) finding Jesus (the way) in these events taking place in heaven:

Finally, the Bible clearly states that the true Christians, that collectively make up true Christianity (Christ's Congregation (The Church)), are to have no divisions among themselves.  This means no denominations may divide or separate true Christians. Satan's plan has always been to divide and conquer using many Religions, denominations, and sects.

Satan has even succeeded in dividing up "Christians" and "Christianity" into endless denominations.

Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Saviour, and from this day forward, you are a born again Christian, destined for eternity in Heaven, bypassing the white throne judgment of God (Rev 20:6,11).

To accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, thereby accepting God's free gift of everlasting life and salvation through Jesus, God's only begotten Son, go to:
