Where is God gonna put everbody?
« on: October 05, 2008, 07:21:11 PM »

When God eventually saves everyone,  where is He gonna put everbody?  Is this earth big enough for 106 billion people--and i dont think this number is even close to how many people who actually have been created?

Just thinking out loud again ::)

Mat 19:26  But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible

It is a very big universe, room enough for all. The planet is big enough.

It is funny that you brought this up...I really hate crowds, I do not like to go to huge events....boy am I in big trouble

1 Cor. 15:42-44  So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

Phil. 3:21  Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

John 3:8  The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."



Hello Anthony,

I'm like you, I think about it and look at these scriptures, but it's still hard to comprehend completely. What's even more phenomenal is how Jesus walked with the disciples but it was hidden from them:

Luke 24:13-16  And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

It's like, That's AMAZING! How do you do that or how is that possible??!! But like Carol posted from the scriptures, with God all things are possible.

Yeah ive been thinking about this the last couple of days and so many different scenarios come to mind. 

Marques i always wondered about that too with Jesus visiting them again.  Sometimes the scriptures make the apostles seem rather, in all respect to them, dumb, but in retospect i was just as dumb in babylon.

Lately i came up with this scenario just out of pure speculation---Those resurrected to inherit the earth (the good) will be on earth and now it goes all star trek like--- the good are now travelling through the universe finding the people who was resurrected to the lake of fire (on there own planet or whatever) are scattered among the universe and on a mission from God "to boldly go where noone has gone before" to save them and teach em the real Truth.

And no i aint been drinking ;D

ROFL.....my father (after several strokes) said he didn't think there was a heaven because there were too many people.  I guess in his own way, he knew everyone would be saved.

A simple post but it made me smile  ;D

Ak4, Ever heard the term puff puff pass, i always wondered what it meant (not drinking huh).

Jesus said in John:
John 14:2:
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:3:
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

I Corinthians 2:9:
But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.

Hebrews 11:16:
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: why God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he has prepared for them a city.

Based on these Scriptures i think we have the answer right here.

The Large Hadron Collider is still looking for the other 7 dimensions that are yet to be discovered. Watch the video about the CERN project and you can see the power of God to create that which we can not begin to comprehend.

Hi Anthony.

There is a lot to be considered, first off the Earth's carrying capacity can vary.  Much of the earth's surface is not habitable.  About 70.8% of the surface is covered by water, the remaining 29.2% not covered by water consists of desert (14%), high mountains (27%), plains, plateaus, and other less suitable terrain.

Currently the total arable land is 13.31% of the land surface, with only 4.71% supporting permanent crops.  Close to 40% of the Earth's land surface is presently used for cropland and pasture, or an estimated 1.3% of cropland and 3.4% of pastureland.

Think about how we have horribly abused natural resources at all levels politically, socially, and economically. 
-Nearly half the earth's land mass already has been changed by human activity - wetlands filled in, forests cut down, prairies plowed under.

-Runoff from farms, industries, and urban areas has resulted in some 50 "dead zones" in coastal waters, including one in the Gulf of Mexico.

-Desertification is the conversion of productive rangeland or cropland into desertlike land. It is usually caused by a combination of overgrazing, soil erosion, prolonged drought and climate change.

You can not compare what this Earth is capable of substaining by how the human race is and has managing natural resources and what it has been reduced to today. 

Mat 19:26  But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

Isa 35:1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
       And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;

Isa 65:17  "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;
       And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.
Isa 65:21  They shall build houses and inhabit them;
       They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
Isa 65:25  The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
       The lion shall eat straw like the ox,
       And dust shall be the serpent's food.
       They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,"
       Says the LORD.

mercy, peace and love

I read somewhere that a mathematician did a calculation where he estimated the total population that had ever lived on the earth. He then stated that every person who evered lived if were all put in Texas standing up each one would have a 10' x 10' area. I don't know if that's true or not, but they brag that Texas is big?

Hi tinknocker,

Your post reminded me of something I read a while back....

According to *Walter Williams the entire population of the world could be distributed within western USA and would still be less densely populated than a place such as Hong Kong.



Population Control Nonsense

Multi-billionaire, Ted Turner, Jane Fonda's husband, told last week's 27th annual meeting of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NEPRHA), "We have to defeat those congressmen and senators who are standing in the way of progress. We've got to win the next election." Ted Turner, founder of CNN and vice chairman of Time-Warner, Inc., was sounding the alarm that something must be done about overpopulation. This father of five said we could achieve the "ideal" world population of two billion people, as opposed to today's six billion, "if everybody adopted a one-child policy for 100 years." How did Mr. Turner arrive at the ideal population? He learned it from his mentor Professor Paul Erlich, author of the 1968 best-seller, "The Population Bomb." In that book, Erlich predicted major food shortages in the U.S. and by "the 1970s. . . hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death." Erlich forecasted the starvation of 65 million Americans between 1980 and 1989, and by 1999 the U.S. population would have declined to 22.6 million. Professor Erlich saw England in more desperate situation, saying, "If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000."

Idiots like Erlich and organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the State Department's Agency for International Development (AID) and NEPRHA constantly sound nonsense warnings about how overpopulation produces disaster and poverty. There is absolutely no relationship between high populations, disaster and poverty. Population control idiots might consider Zaire's meager population density of 39 people per square mile to be ideal while Hong Kong's population density of 247,501 people per square mile is problematic. Hong Kong is 6,000 times more crowded than Zaire. Yet Hong Kong's per capita income is $8,260 while Zaire, the world's poorest country, has a per capital income of less than $200.

Planet Earth is loaded with room. We could put the world's entire population into the United States. Doing so would make our population density 1,531 people per square mile. That's a far lower population density than what now exists in New York (11,440), Los Angeles (9,126) and Houston (7,512). The entire U.S. population could move to Texas and each family of four would enjoy 2.9 acres of land. If the entire world's population moved to Texas, California, Colorado and Alaska, each family of four would enjoy nine-tenths of an acre of land.

So-called overpopulation problems are really a result of socialistic government practices that reduce the capacity of people to educate, clothe, house and feed themselves. Poor countries are rife with agricultural restrictions controls, export and import controls, restrictive licensing, price controls, not to mention gross human rights abuses that encourage their most productive people to emigrate. The most promising anti-poverty tool for poor people and poor countries is personal liberty.

But let's get back to the population control gang and ask: suppose the rest of us don't feel like adopting a one-child policy, then what? The elite's answer will be to use brute government force, like China does, to impose a one-child policy. You say, "Williams, what would make you say that? Just ask who are the heroes of America's liberals, including Ted Turner's wife, Jane Fonda? They are some of history's most despicable blood thirsty tyrants like Mao Zedong, Lenin, Stalin and Castro. Don't forget that it was the 1960s campus liberals who marched around singing the praises of Mao, Lenin and Ho Chi Min. The difference between now and then is that many of these liberals have moved up to become congressmen, senators, presidents, college professors and government workers.

Texas is big (i guess) but i dont think its that big. :)

Kat,

Thanks for the stats.  I remember watching on of those discovery channel shows where it was basically giving a scientific way of how those verses you put can happen to the earth.---the thing is they didnt even do the show on those verses at all.  I was watching it and thinking of those verses--especially the one about the desert.

What also gets me is the polar shift they say may be long over due for the earth and what this might due.  This may cause the mountains and plateaus to become flat and habital, agricultural ground along with the desert.  They say theres so much potential for life in the lava of this planet

Anyway before i better stop rambling

Oh yeah I forgot to add this verse from Revelation;

Rev 21:1  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Before I get inundated with protests that this verse is not to be taken literally let's suppose for arguments sake that this can be taken both literally and more importantly spiritually.

Since the earth's surface is 3/4 ocean it sure would open up a whole lot of area...

But how much room would spiritual beings require anyway?  ;)

Peace,

Joe

I am quite certain that this or anything else that comes along is not a problem for God! I for one trust the Lord completely, I can not draw a breath except that he allows me to do so. God controls everything and everyone, like the song says: Don't worry be Happy!

Joe,

I am with you there, first the physical then the spiritual. According to: author John White (Pole Shift 1980) there
is evidence of many polar shifts in the rock of earth.

total inhabitable land mass of 51 million sq. mi

http://www.prb.org/Articles/2002/HowManyPeopleHaveEverLivedonEarth.aspx
106,456,367,669   

Makes it 1 person per 4.8 sq miles for the planet.


http://www.blm.gov/natacq/pls98/98PL1-3.PDF
Texas has 168,217,600 acres
632 people per acre.

1 acre = 43,560 square feet
Thats about 1 person per 69 sq feet.



Just some numbers.

With spiritual bodies, you know a lot of us would go out and explore the rest of God's creation.  Agr could live on Phoebe..he seems to be enambored by it  ;D
Can you even imagine this. Where to start, the universe or subatomic?

According to the catholics who spent many hours debating...10,000 angels could fit on a head of a pin.....Anyway...he has already 'put' man in the Garden once so I assume that is where God is gonna put everybody again.

by the way that word "put" / placed is the word "rest" in hebrew

I'd love to watch the birth of a new star or a galaxy.  There is some purpose to him creating them, but we are incapable of comprehending it all!

But it's fun to wonder...
