Americans Stand A Better Chance To Get To Heaven

How Many Of Us Get To Go To Heaven?

Who is it that gets to live forever? Do we even want to live forever? A little while ago Daily Post’s Scott Berkun posed exactly that question, ‘Do you want to live forever?’ and received widely varied responses.

Did you know that Americans Stand a Better Chance To Get to Heaven?

First of all you need to know that Americans stand a better chance than others to get into heaven, it is a mathematical fact and you can read more about that here.

Only Two People Entered the Promised Land

Secondly you need to know that out of the whole Hebrew nation, which 3500 years ago was around one million people, only two out of one million got to enter the promised land. After a long forty year journey through the wilderness, only two.

Why Only Two Out Of A Million?

Why was this? Because these were the only two that obeyed God. Yep. That’s what the bible tells us. Even Moses was not allowed to enter the promised land. Who were the two that were allowed to enter the promised land?

Caleb and Joshua. It is good to keep in mind that the Jewish people are meticulous record keepers. And there you have it, Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun were the only two out of the original tribe which entered the promised land because they were the only two that followed God.

Many seek to enter in.

Many Seek To Enter In. Most people I know expect to go to heaven, just because … They have faith and all that. They reckon they’ll be fine.

This doesn’t correlate with what the Good Book tells us. The bible tells us that two were kicked out of paradise for not obeying God and two out of around one million entered into the promised land because they were the only two who obeyed God.

What are your chances that you’ll end up in heaven?

So, what are your chances that you’ll end up in heaven? Unless you’re an American … the bible tells us that only two out of a nation of around one million people entered the promised land.

Reading the above made me wonder what the parameters are.

  1. Well Mimi, I will just have to put on the jug when I know your on your way and bake a cake for you too, Oops! we don’t eat in Heaven do we, not even MacDonald’s burgers! , instead we will have Living water and Spiritual food… How good is that… no dieting!

    Did you know Mimi that there were more Jews than Caleb and Joshua who entered the Promised land as you can see in the Deuteronomy 1: 39 (see below) and it’s the same today, Children who don’t know wrong from right are under God’s Grace till they do and no child is punished for their Parents sin, so what Country has the Largest Population of Children, yes it’s Africa! so sorry Mimi, more Africans than Americans will go to Heaven. Lol

    Deuteronomy 1: 39 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it.

    Deuteronomy 24 :16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

    Matthew 19:13-14 Then were there brought unto Him little children, that He should put His hands on them, and pray: and the Disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Hi Anne,
    Ready for the cake, a promise is a promise ~grin~

    You’re absolutely right, sorry if I did not make that clear, Joshua and Caleb were the only two ‘out of the original tribe’ that were allowed in. Everyone else over twenty years of age perished in the desert. This is after forty years wandering through the desert.

    Yep, well said, as per Matthew 18:7 ‘Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.’
    You may well be right about the African people beating the Americans to it. We’ll have to wait and see and guess.

    Today I found out from my Karaite friends that from the two entering the promised land over the age of twenty; Joshua was from Jewish descent, whilst Caleb apparently was a ‘gentile’ who hath joined himself to the Israelites. I am not a Karaite myself but love their thorough bible studies and knowledge of historical context combined with their understanding of the Hebrew language. This is a link to listen to today’s study if ever you get a chance, they are a fun bunch and know their bible: http://nehemiaswall.s3.amazonaws.com/Torah_Pearls/Torah-Pearls-36-Numbers-03-Behaalotecha.mp3.

    As you are, ready for tea and cakes now.

  3. […] and Eve and Joshua and Caleb aren’t the only people showing us where obedience or disobedience gets […]
