Clouds above and crowds below speak in unison
The book of Hebrews in Chapter 12 verse 1 speaks of a supporting "cloud of witnesses" which egg us on to run the race for God. It is not unreasonable to conclude that if you are a believer in Jesus that those who dide in faith and are with HIm encourage us to share our faith. But few think of the crowds below who denied Him when alive on this earth but now like the rich man in hell who begged Abraham to send Lazarus to testify to his 5 brothers "lest they come to this place of torment" (see Luke's gospel chapter 16 verse 27 etc.) want us to witness for Jesus. Add the total population of heaven to the total population of Hell. That's a lot of people.
