How many people do you think there will be in heaven? I have a cousin who belongs to a group that claims only a few people will make it all the way to heaven, but is this what the Bible says?


No, this isn’t what the Bible teaches. The Bible tells us there will be a vast number of people in heaven — so many that no one could count them (see Revelation 7:9).

The Bible tells us many truths about heaven — but the most important is that heaven is the place where God is. In other words, in heaven we will be in God’s presence forever. Think of it! And not only will we be with God, but we will be with Jesus, who came to take us to heaven forever. His promise is for all who put their faith and trust in Him for their salvation: “In my Father’s house are many rooms…. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me” (John 14:2-3).

Don’t be misled by those who twist what the Bible says or turn their back on its clear meaning. Jesus Christ came for one reason: to make it possible for us to go to heaven when we die. He did this by taking all our sins upon Himself and dying on the cross for us. Now He offers us the gift of eternal life.

Have you accepted that gift? You can, by confessing your sins to God and asking Christ to come into your life as your Lord and Savior. And pray for your cousin, that he too may put his faith in Christ.

    With the current population of earth at 7ish billion, well over a million people move on to judgement each WEEK.

    Jesus said to the thief hanging on a cross to His right. You will be with Me in Paradise. It is a place of great beauty and happiness…

    If you can live for eternity and are devoted when you get to heaven I am sure you can count it. As being after a few periods of time no one else will become there (As far as we will know.)

    i remember as a young girl hearing and then I am sure teaching in Sunday school that there are only 5 People in heaven. I think there were lazarus, the man who walked with God, I think we’re two of them. When Jesus walks on the earth again the dead will rise and go to heaven then. Can you solve this memory for me please?

    Revelation 7:9 tells it all, Also you can look at Amazing Facts book.

    God Bless!!

    Once you’re saved, can you lose your salvation?

    1. BGEA says:

      Good question, Louis. How can we be sure of our salvation? Billy Graham once answered the question this way: “Because God’s Word tells us, and God cannot lie. If you have put your personal faith and trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Bible says God has made you a member of His family.”

      If you aren’t sure or still have questions, please visit to chat with someone further.
