You're at the gates of Heaven, and God asks you, "Why should I let you in?" What do you reply?

One should never interpret God literally as He is beyond human understanding. Just because 144,000 will be 'sealed' on that day does not mean that only 144,000 will be saved out of all men from the beginning of time till the End of it, after all. there'd be no point in creating humanity at all, much less saving it by an act of Redemption.
read the whole book. Do not pick and choose verses.
There is a passage which says, during the three days of the last chastisements, 'and those fell upon their face and repented'; and another which states 'and they who did not repent but cried out in a loud voice that their King (of the earth) was fallen'.
One should never interpret or else there would be 1001 different ways to look at something. John also saw 'a great multitude without number of people of all nations, tribes and countries' holding palm branches and clothed in white as he had that vision (also in the same book and near the same verse you are speaking of)....which means not just the Jewish Nation

When it happens I just need to have faith that I have lived as rightly as possible and ask not through my merits but my Redeemer's. The last thing I'm going to do is demand, lol.

As far as God only caring about the Jews, the apostles broke from their own people after they were rejected and at the command of Christ went to preach to all Nations for their saving; and if they were not saved who laid down their lives even in Roman times then there would have been absolutely no point to anything. Most of the early roman martyrs (converts) were anything but Jewish or Muslim. It's like saying they died for nothing and that God made superfluous creatures and made them with the thought of them not having any chance at heaven or that good and evil actions would matter at all. That He made them to be condemned and purposefully gave them souls to be tortured in hell with no thought of free will acting for their benefit or condemnation of their own acts. Life would have meaning for some and none for others and that would lead to despair that God does not love all of His creatures, and wants them to be happy with Him in heaven....the very purpose for which the Redemption took place an why the apostles 'preached to all nations'. Read in the Bible elsewhere, Christ says to go to the gentiles (non-jews!) and all who will received the Word.

You know, as I think about it religion would be real even if God wasn't.

i'm Wiccan, so if i was to meet the Christian God i've always known i would shrug and say 'sorry i didn't follow the Christian path, i just hope you judge me based on the life i lived, and not the place of worship.' [and then be sent to hell for breaking the first commandment.]

Now I don't believe in God, but the possibility of him being real isn't 0% so I don't hate on religion. If God were real and this happened I would reply with this: There is no reason you should let me in, there is no real reason to not let me in. I do want to go in, but me going in or not is up to you. Not up to me. Since you are all powerful and all knowing. You shouldn't even have to ask me this question. Because I am entitled to nothing, and no one.

Not really a response but a mere question: Is my name in the book of life?
