How Many Will Reign in the Millennial Kingdom?

These are rough figures, of course, but let's say there were 50 million souls saved since Adam, and there will be 250 million souls saved in the millennial kingdom. The New City is only 1500 x 1500 miles which can comfortably hold 1 billion saved, so that's a savings ratio of 1 in 300. My less conservative estimate is 1 in 194 so consider the latter the upper boundary and 1 in 300 the lower boundary for the savings ratio.

Watchman Nee (CFP white covers) and I agree that only about 1/7th of the Church alive at the first rapture will be received "before the throne" (Rev. 7.9) before the Tribulation commences (8.7ff). This is represented by the Philadelphia one of 7 churches being the overcomer church.

There are about 7 billion people on the planet right now so about 23 million are saved. 1/7th of those brings us to 3 million, so about 3 million will be taken up at the first rapture according to readiness (Matt. 24.42, Luke 21.36, Rev. 3.10).

How many will return with Christ to reign during the 1000 years? 50 billion / 300 = 165 million saved since Adam. 165 / 7 = 24 million.

There will be about 24 million (Jude 14,15) who return with Christ on Aug. 7, 2022 Tisha B'Av to reign over the nations for 1000 years (Rev. 2.26, 20.4-6).

24 is the number of Administration in the Bible such as the 24 courses or the 24 archangels who manage the affairs of the universe (Rev. 4).

The danger that lies before man is the pretribber onlyists will not realize it is the Tribulation because when they observe 3 million vanished they assume it could not be the Church for if it was surely they would be included so they will accuse the brethren (Rev. 12.10) and may even take the mark of the beast.

The same goes for posttribber or prewrath onlyists. They too will accuse the overcomers. Though they may consider the Tribulation has begun at that point, they have excluded  themselves from this hope as well as the kingdom reign.

When asked which view is worse off, the Lord showed me by His Holy Spirit. The pretribber onlyists are more likely to take the mark of the beast whereas the posttribber onlyists though they take away the hope of the Church for themselves, they will be less likely to take the mark because they will be less disillusioned by what occurs when about 3 million are raptured alive at the first rapture according to partial rapture.

Praise the Lord for this discernment! Amen.
