    (Revelation 14:1) . . .And I saw, and, look! the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion,
    and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his
    Father written on their foreheads. . .

    No one has gone to heaven prior to Christ

    (John 3:13) . . .Moreover, no man has ascended into heaven but he that descended
    from heaven, the Son of man.

    there are around 7million j.w's on the planet, not even counting the dead ones, galveston and robbie have roughly a 1 in 50 chance of getting in. i think id give up if i were them as the true odds are gonna be double that.

    why, there is also a great crowd which no man was able to number,

    (Revelation 7:9-10) . . .After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which no
    man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues,
    standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes; and there
    were palm branches in their hands.  And they keep on crying with a loud voice, saying:
    “Salvation [we owe] to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.”

    Oh they have a much lower chance than that - though you correctly accounted for those JWs who have died you haven't yet accounted for those who are yet to be born. Indeed perhaps Robbie and Co. might wish to petition God for the end of the world to take place immediately. Their chances of getting into the magic playground are getting smaller with every day that passes. Reveal Hidden Content
    Actually they have no chance because fairy tale gardens in the sky don\'t actually exist

    it seems to me that you are unaware that the majority of Jehovahs Witnesses hope to
    live, not in heaven with Christ, but on a restored paradise earth, which has the capacity
    to hold all the people that have ever lived.

    Are you suggesting that you are not one of the 144,000 Robbie?

    Galveston is not one of the 144,000. My desire is to be here on earth, hopefully forever if I am found worthy.
