YOU CAN KNOW FOR SURE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO
H E A V E N
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God”
1 John 5:12-13
Going to Heaven has nothing to do with how good you are, or what church or religion you belong to. The Bible tells us very clearly how we may know 100% for sure that we will go STRAIGHT to Heaven when we die. There are 4 simple truths that you must understand.
1. WE ALL HAVE SINNED
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. ” (Romans 3:10-12)
We are all sinners by nature and by choice. We all have broken God’s holy laws, and we stand guilty and condemned before Him. No one is perfect.
2. THERE IS A PUNISHMENT FOR OUR SIN.
“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23)
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14)
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
Because God is holy, He must punish sin. The punishment that God requires for sin is death. There are two deaths mentioned in the Bible: physical death, and spiritual death. We must be punished for our sins by being separated from God forever in the lake of fire, and no good works or religion can save us. Every unsaved sinner is headed for Hell fire.
3. JESUS CHRIST TOOK OUR PUNISHMENT.
“But God commendeth [demonstrated] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,” (Revelation 1:5)
The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, came to earth about two thousand years ago. He died on the cross for your sins, and rose again three days later. He took your punishment upon himself so you can go to heaven. No church can save you; neither can religion, good works, baptism, communion, nor confession. Jesus Christ alone saves you.
4. YOU CAN BE SAVED RIGHT NOW.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8, 9)
You can be saved if you will: it is as simple as A-B-C
Admit your sin and guilt and repent. Turn from your sins and what you are trusting.
Believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God died on the cross for your sins, and rose from the grave.
Call and receive Christ as your personal Saviour by calling upon His name.
If you will simply receive God’s gift of eternal life by trusting the Lord Jesus to save you and calling upon His name, you can know for sure that you are going to heaven. Do you want Jesus to take you to heaven one day? Do you believe that He will save you if you will ask him? If you do, then bow your head and pray this simple sinners prayer of confession to God for salvation.
Dear Jesus, I know I am a guilty sinner, I believe your word and I deserve the punishment for my sins in hell. I trust you now as my personal Saviour, and call upon you alone to save me from hell and take me to heaven. Please give me your free gift of eternal life. Amen!
NOW THAT YOU ARE SAVED, YOU ARE SAVED FOREVER.
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:28-29)
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24)
“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.” (Titus 1:2)
When God gives you eternal life, He gives it to you forever; otherwise, He would not have called it eternal life! You are His child, and are sealed by His Holy Spirit until the day you die. (Eph. 1:13, 14)
There are several things that you should do to please God. The Bible says “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven” “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls”. (Matt. 10:32- Acts 2:41)
