Bible Verse Reveals That No One Will Go To Heaven Because Heaven Is Full

The Jehovah Witnesses believe that only 144,000 people will have access to get to heaven and considering the number of years the earth has been in existence after the first destruction in the days of Noah, the 144,000 people have already been chosen or selected.


They believe that the 144,000 will rule paradise with Jesus Christ and the rest of the saved souls will enjoy a new world on Earth after the lost souls and the devil have been cast away.


They believe the 144,000 (which they consider to be synonymous with the "little flock" of Luke 12:32) will serve with Christ as king-priests for a thousand years, while all other people accepted by God (the "other sheep" of John 10:16, composed of "the great crowd" of Revelation 7:9,14 and the resurrected righteous.

 

In simple words, Jesus Christ will be the president and the 144,000 will be his ministers --- the saved souls will be the citizens.

They use this bible verses to support their theory.


Revelation 7:4


And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:


Revelation 14:1-3


Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps. And they *sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.
