@Treasure: There are myriads upon myriads of angels in heaven(Revelation 5:11) and also "outer space" is ever expanding so we can reason heaven is ever expanding as well. Apparently it has a limit of shared rulership since only 144,000 share in the rulership with Jesus which is another reason why I don't understand the Trina(a nickname I gave to trinity) How could they be 144,001 spirit persons equal to the father after all if your equal to God the son(a phrase that's not in the bible btw) then your equal to God the father(a phrase that is in the bible) right?
Anyway about the 144,000 listed in revelation chapter 7:4-8 being literal Jews. According to Numbers 1:4-16 the 2 tribes don't match meaning the 2 tribes are most likely different. Also according to James 1:1 the "12 tribes" still existed in Jesus day. If taken literally then the 12 tribes of Israel are some really really old people like thousands of years old. The bible also says that a person who follows god's word(law) then your already a Jew (Romans 2:25-29)(Galatians 3:26-29)

The same thing occurred in the "New Testament," or Christian Greek Scriptures. Professor George Howard goes on to say: "When the Hebrew form for the divine name was eliminated in favor of Greek substitutes in the Septuagint, it was eliminated also from the New Testament quotations of the Septuagint.
