Another site (http://www.ibiblio.org/lunarbin/worldpop)
places the total pop at 7.064 and the under 15 number is generally agreed to be
about 27% that would put the youth numbers 1.907 Billion that would make the
others 635.7 million and 715.2 million respectively.
At Jan 1 2011, on the same site, the pop is to be 7.074 making the <15
number 1.909 billion and adults 636.6 million and 716.2 million
Obviously these numbers would vary with the cut off age of 13 but this is a
pretty good estimate.
There are about 2.2 Billion Christians (adults and kids) in the world half
of those are catholic.
Jean Stepnoski (6 Dec
the Children Vastly Outnumber the Parents?"
the stories in Genesis about the Noah family and the Lot family we see
noteworthy details. It has to do with ratio and percentage. Of the Noah family
of the 8, there are 2 parents and 6 children. The children are the 3 sons and
the 3 daughters-in-law. In the Lot family is 1 parent and 2 children. So the
ratios are 6 to 2 and 2 to 1. If they are combined it is 8 to 3. Divide 100%
by 8 and get 12.5%. Multiply 6 or 2 times 12.5% and get 75% children and
25% parents. Add the ratios and get 8 to 3. Divide 100% by 11 and get about
9%. Multiply 8 or 3 times 9% and get 72% children to 27%
parents. With either the ratio or 6 to 2 or 8 to 3 there is the
percentage range of about 72 to 75% of the children. If we apply these
percentages to the events of The Blessed Hope, are these Scriptural
clues to let us know, in advance, that the children will vastly outnumber the
parents? The numbers lead to such an implication. What age of accountability?
Let us choose the age of 13 for those of bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah age or
We read in The Book of
Revelation that the Beast (antichrist) will curse Heaven and the beings there.
Why will he? That is where the vanished have gone? What group would not be
included in the blasphemy and cursing? The children will not. Why? The
Messiah/Christ will be quoted out of context as "the thief in the night." Who
will He be accused of thieving, or stealing, without the consent or permission
of their PARENTS? He will be accused of stealing the children, the treasures
of the parents of their houses.
I have long
believed that the great wild card of The Blessed Hope will be the children.
Looking to the clues of the numbers in Genesis, it appears that the percentage
of the living children will be very high and affect very many. Could it be
hundreds of millions? Up to a billion? It will be clear when the events of The
Blessed Hope finally occur. Come quickly, Lord...
