The population of Heaven is an ever-fluctuating situation. The ins and outs come and go. God knows how many citizen souls are alive and well at any one time in this nation of candidates waiting for reincarnation.
Any total would only be an estimation, depending on whether those who opted for cremation after they died, of course, would be qualified. It's fair to say, given the situation down below the normal flow, plus war and disease and the intricacies of life, if you please, did God gave up on these in the early days following creation?
Historically and categorically, things started right, then went wrong. It wasn't long after God gave man, and woman to a lesser degree, the power of self determination. Once decided, God confided only to the few He relied on that once He made up His mind His children would have to arrive at their own decisions based on prevailing conditions.
But long, long, very, very long, long ago things got out of hand and the demand, based on prayer polls throughout the lands on Earth and many other places, was that God must get involved to solve the Galactic situation.
How could God admit after all these endless millennia He was wrong all along and must be strong and concede He'd made a mess of it? Not only had God lost His faith in humanity, He had stricken off His list the sick and well, and who can tell, those who think war is hell, even those who buy and sell on Wall Street and those who eat meats and sweets and stuff their gut with God knows what would disagree.
God continued to make excuses for permitting abuses but now He knew t somehow He no longer could defend His position. The moment of decision had come. He had to show He was not dumb, just thought a lot and now that He was on the spot, had to unwrought what He had wrought.
In a precedent-setting act it is a fact God appeared on prime time TV, in all the media, on the world-wide Internet and on like outlets on every planet He controlled. The ways since the days of old had to go. His plan for man (referring, of course, generically) was that he was no longer the master of his destiny.
"From now on," God's speech concluded, "you must answer directly to Me and only Me for what you do. I'll think it through and reveal my decision and if you don't do what I tell you to, you'll go straight to hell, no second chance, none of this forgiveness business, and I, as God as My Own Witness, thus have I decreed." With that God concluded, except to add as an after thought what He ought: "God bless."
The announcer, shaken because he'd heard the word of God, alive, not taped, gaped into the microphone, then muttered: "The management states, categorically, IT does not agree with God's views. And now it's back to the evening news."
