Everything about the population of heaven

Everything about the population of heaven

The human population of the kingdom of heaven is hotly debated among many factions of Christianity because the Bible does provide an approximation of the population figures and also includes rather mystifying numerical reports as well.

Bible readers are made aware that the population of lost souls in the Kingdom of Hell outnumber those in Heaven, but in terms of actual numbers, it is recorded in the book of Revelation by the apostle John, who received a great spiritual vision and writes

“And I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the living beings and the elder, and the numbers of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands”. (Revelation 5:11-14)

Theorists believe this brief and imprecise numerical narrative refers to people in great numbers (ten thousand multiplied by ten thousand). Even the word “myriad” meaning ‘one thousand’ is also used to describe ‘1 million’ on older versions, so the numbers may be greater still. 

The main point of contention among some zealous readers of the Bible are the verses within the book of Revelation that account for a certain number of people from twelve specific Jewish tribes that total the exact figure of one hundred and forty-four thousand (144,000). These people are considered by some to be distinct preachers of the bible who will earn a definite place in Heaven. “Of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed”. (Rev 7:5-8)

The twelve tribes are listed in the following order: The tribe of Judah, Reuben, Gad, Aser, Nephthalim, Manasses, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Zabulon, Joseph, and lastly, the tribe of Benjamin.

Biblical scripture describes these people as ‘marked with the seal of God’ during the period of terrible tribulation that is to come. The other inhabitants of the Kingdom of heaven are far greater in number and more diverse in nationality.

“After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the lamb”.       (Revelation 7:4-9)
