Who selects the ones who will go to heaven and what will they do there?

The Bible says that God selects those who will go to heaven:

2 Thess. 2:13, 14: "We are obligated to thank God always for you, brothers loved by Jehovah, because God selected you from the beginning for salvation by sanctifying you with spirit and by your faith in the truth. To this very destiny he called you through the good news we declare, for the purpose of acquiring the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Rom. 9:6, 16: "Not all who spring from Israel are really `Israel.' . . . It depends, not upon the one wishing nor upon the one running, but upon God, who has mercy."

The Bible says that those going to heaven "will be priests of God ... and will rule as kings."

Rev. 20:6: "They will be priests of God and of the Christ, and will rule as kings with him for the thousand years." (Also Daniel 7:27)

1 Cor. 6:2: "Do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world?"

Rev. 5:10: "You made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth."
