Before we delve into Matthew 11:11, let’s briefly go over the Watchtower’s two-class theology. They teach that all Jehovah’s Witnesses will be eternally separated into two metaphysically distinct locations: heaven or earth. The anointed 144,000 of Revelation 7 will rule and reign with Christ in heaven while the remaining “great crowd” live on paradise earth. … More Does Matthew 11:11 teach that John the Baptist won’t be in the Heavenly Kingdom?

In THIS VIDEO I go through a series of cross references found in the New World Translation to show that the Great Crowd inherits the abodes that are supposedly in heaven.
