For you to know for sure when you die…if you are going to heaven or not…this is what you need to understand. God is, and He is the Creator of everything, including all mankind. Many scientists today acknowledge that “everything” began all at once…with the “Big Bang”! The Bible says:
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
Many historians, as discoveries over time have increased, now believe the Bible to be the most reliable source of early world history. It is God’s truth to inform and instruct all people concerning life.It teaches that everything is His…and everything includes heaven. Heaven is God’s home. It is His…and He is perfect…and heaven is perfect. There is only God’s goodness and His pure love.That makes it a problem for us…because we sin. It is our heritage. We are born with it.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
“as it is written: None is righteous, no, not one.”
Sin is any thought or action contrary to the goodness of God. That is the bad news…but…here is the good news!
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
Being accepted by God and allowed into heaven…is not of your good works…or whatever your definition of good behavior might be. You can’t get to heaven…on your own.
It’s a free gift…because of God’s love for us!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
God’s gift of eternal life…is only fulfilled when it is received. Therefore, if you want to know for sure…that you’re going to heaven…you have to receive God’s gift of forgiveness and acceptance.
“But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, HE gave the right to become children of God.”
“Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”
1 John 5:12-13
“Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
If this is the desire of your heart…and the following prayer expresses your decision…pray now and receive CHRIST!
I know I have sinned against you.
Please forgive me.
I receive Jesus…your only Son…right now as Savior of my life … having died to pay for my sins. Thank you for forgiving my sins … and for my new life.
I pray this prayer in Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
“But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.”
“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.”
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
God will keep His word…forgive your sins…give you eternal life…and confirm your place in heaven!
