    When God's People Will Be the Majority

    In comparison with the billions of the world, God's people will be a little flock; but God will be their refuge. When the sound of the last trump shall penetrate the prison house of the dead, and the righteous shall come forth, standing then with the loyal and true of all ages, the children of God will be far in the majority.TT 308.3
