'Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side. My great concern is to be on God's side' - Abraham Lincoln
Why would God kill 50% of mankind the reader asks? The answer is that he offers them citizenship of the Kingdom of God and they do not accept his offer. This offer will be very real and unambiguous before Armageddon when Jesus' bride (the 1NC saints) appears visibly, by which time it is still not too late to be saved. The 50% who do not want to know about his kingdom, and who reject both God and Jesus and the kingdom, plainly will not gain entry. Satan's kingdom on the other hand ended at the end of his 6,000 year lease on 2008Tishri1. Whereas the world ended judicially on 2008Nisan14. And the Kingdom of God began in heaven on 2008Nisan22. But the end of ex Abrahamic re-adamic man we presently understand is 2018Ab14. The end game, the time of the end, is the period between the judicial end of the world and the physical end of the world. It lasts for 10 years precisely in the case of Adam, from 2008Nisan14 to 2018Nisan14, the adamic Passover, the end of Adam, the end of the world of Adam, the Passover execution that was delayed by 6010 years from 3993Nisan14, by the intervention of one Angel Michael. And it lasts for 123 months to 2018Tammuz14, the end of Zoar and the end of the world administratively. And it lasts for 124 months until the end of unsealed Abraham on 2018Ab14, the end of entry into the first death. In fact the 120 month 'hour' of the passing away of the heaven and the earth of Adam, is 1/12th of the 120 year day of the second presence which Matthew 24 has the signs for.
25% of mankind is raptured/saved into the greater ark of Noah (those who join Zoar during the Sabbath year to 2017Adar30), 25% of mankind is saved into Zoar or into the Omega Church that follows it, and protected on earth throughout the final lava flood and through its after effects. Then the balance of us, the other 50% are wiped out by the WMD wielding wild beasts of Satan and by the Passover executions of God. The extinction level volcanic event, the greater flood of lava, the 40+40 day long greater destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah from 2018Nisan14-2018Tammuz4 kills no one. Adam dies before it starts and Abraham is protected from it.
Satan kills by fire. God kills by Passover. That is the pattern of the fire signs and of the rest of this system.
29 Jesus said: Truly I say to you men, No one has left house or brothers or
sisters or mother or father or children or fields for my sake and for the sake
of the good news
30 who will not get a hundredfold now in this period of time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields, with persecutions, and in the coming system of things everlasting life (Mark 10).
This refers to those who leave FDS3/ES2, which had 6 million at itís fall when it became a false church. They then join FDS4, which will have 100x more or 600 million brothers.
30 And every tenth part of the land, out of the seed of the land and the fruit of the tree, belongs to Jehovah. It is something holy to Jehovah (Leviticus 27).
13 And there will still be in it a tenth, and it must again become something for burning down, like a big tree and like a massive tree in which, when there is a cutting down [of them], there is a stump; a holy seed will be the stump of it (Isaiah 6).
19 Then he blessed him and said: Blessed be Abram of the Most High God, Producer
of heaven and earth.
20 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your oppressors into your hand!
At that Abram gave him a tenth of everything (Genesis 14).
The LWs will have one tenth of one half of the population of the world in the true church at the end of 2017Elul7, when we lose our water baptism and Mrs Lot loses her water to become a pillar of salt. This tenth is a holy seed. Now 10% of 3Ĺ billion is 350 million. The trouble is the Revelation 9 puts this figure at 2 myriads of myriads or 200 million and not 300 million (in fact its 291 million which is 100x 291 million Kings and Queens and Lords and Ladies). But then we expect that an equal amount of people will be resurrected from the past with a water baptism, so in all every JW who leaves that church of 7 million people (of which perhaps 5 million once had a valid 3EC water baptism) to join the LWs, will get 500 million water baptised brothers in the kingdom of God. He will get a hundrefold more brothers like the scripture says!
(Read all about it!)
We already know that more are killed than get 'life' at the end of the World from Jesusí words...
13 Go in through the narrow gate; because broad and spacious is the road leading
off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it.
14 Whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it (Matthew 7).
So those gaining judicial life are few and therefore would have to be considerably less than 50%. But many are saved without having judicial life. In fact the majority of those saved are judicially dead in the Kingdom of God (having no associated angels, not being spirit sons of God), although they must be born again to enter the Kingdom, they borrow a temporary angelic vehicle for that purpose and are born again in Melchizedaic or Methuselaian bodies. This has taken us a long time to understand - too long! For Jesus was asked...
Now a certain man said to him: Lord, are those who are being saved few? He said
24 Exert yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will seek to get in but will not be able,
25 when once the householder has got up and locked the door, and you start to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, 'Sir, open to us.' But in answer he will say to you, 'I do not know where you are from.'
26 Then you will start saying, 'We ate and drank in front of you, and you taught in our broad ways.'
27 But he will speak and say to you, 'I do not know where you are from. Get away from me, all you workers of unrighteousness!'
28 There is where [your] weeping and the gnashing of [your] teeth will be, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves thrown outside.
29 Furthermore, people will come from eastern parts and western, and from north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God (Luke 13).
But then Matthew gives the game away saying...
But I tell you that many from eastern parts and western parts will come and
recline at the table with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the
12 whereas the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the darkness outside. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be (Matthew 8).
So the answer is no, those being saved are not few! They are many! But those going through the narrow gate into judicial life, i.e. those being born again in spirit other than through a rapture covenant are few. Now the percentage of people saved in the end is very plain from the Gospels. Matthew 24 refers to the invisible presence of the bride of Christ before Armageddon...
For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men
marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into
39 and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.
40 Then 2 will be in the field: one [male] will be taken along and the other [male] will be abandoned [in the old true church];
41 2 will be grinding at the hand mill: one [female] will be taken along and the other [female] will be abandoned [in the old true church] (Matthew 24).
50% of those men and women working in the old true church enter into the new true church. But Luke 17 refers to the visible presence of his bride at the start of the kingdom and the rapture...
Likewise, just as it occurred in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were
drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were
29 But on the day that Lot came out of Sodom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 The same way it will be on that day when the Son of man is to be revealed.
31 On that day let the person that is on the housetop but whose movable things are in the house not come down to pick these up, and the person out in the field, let him likewise not return to the things behind.
32 Remember the wife of Lot.
33 Whoever seeks to keep his soul safe for himself will lose it, but whoever loses it will preserve it alive.
34 I tell you, In that night  2 will be in one bed; the one [male] will be taken along, but the other [male] will be abandoned [to the fire of Armageddon, the lava of an extinction level volcanic event].
35 There will be 2 grinding at the same mill; the one [female] will be taken along , but the other [female] will be abandoned [to the fire of Armageddon, the lava of an extinction level volcanic event] (Luke 17).
So Luke 17 tells us that 50% of men and 50% of women are saved and 50% are saved at day and 50% are saved at night during the rapture. One group is saved visibly (by day), another group is saved invisibly (by night into the ark), and the other two groups are lost to the fire.
These 2 divisions by 2 are firstly of all mankind into the saved and the condemned and secondly of those saved into the ark and missing the ark. so 50% of man is saved. And 50% of those who are saved enter into God's rest in the ark. That means 25% of mankind go into the ark. It must be a very big ark.
So there are two roads which the true God presents before us. The road to salvation (which is broad and carries 50% of mankind) and the road to life (which is indeed narrow but carries more saints than there were physical Jews, i.e. more than 50 million people upon it). Hence we read in Mark1 ...
3 listen! someone is crying out in the wilderness, Prepare the way of Jehovah, you people, make his roads straight (Mark1)
3 A voice is crying -- in a wilderness -- Prepare ye the way of Jehovah, Make straight in a desert a highway [also means terraces, courses, elevated road often with the old non elevated road next to it. You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road - Old Scottish Song. The high road for the saints, the low road for those saved!] to our God (Isaiah 40 YLT).
Mark is interpreting Isaiah and revealing the two paths God has for us.
17 I shall surely bless you and I shall surely multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens and like the grains of sand that are on the seashore; and your seed will take possession of the gate of his enemies (Genesis 22).
12 And you, you have said [to Abraham], 'Unquestionably I shall deal well with you and I will constitute your seed like the grains of sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.' (Genesis 32).
7 Now as soon as the 1,000 years have been
ended, Satan will be let loose out of his prison,
8 and he will go out to mislead those nations in the 4 corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war. The number of these is as the sand of the sea (Revelation 20).
So the number of those saved = the number of those condemned = 'as the sand of the sea' = 50% of mankind.
5 And from the assembly of the sons of
Israel he should take 2 male kids of the goats for a sin offering and one ram
for a burnt offering.
6 And Aaron must present the bull of the sin offering, which is for himself, and he must make atonement in behalf of himself and his house.
7 And he must take the 2 goats and make them stand before Jehovah at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
8 And Aaron must draw lots over the 2 goats, the one lot for Jehovah and the other lot for Azazel.
9 And Aaron must present the goat over which the lot came up for Jehovah, and he must make it a sin offering.
10 But the goat over which the lot came up for Azazel should be stood alive before Jehovah to make atonement for it, so as to send it away for Azazel into the wilderness (Leviticus16).
So 50% of the goats are destroyed for sin and the other 50% are preserved alive by the high priest.
The one gets into paradise, the other does not. The fact that there was one each side and not two on one side and one on the other, shows us that the ratio of Paradise to Hell is 50/50. For more please see U55.
