| Yes, you can KNOW you're going to
Heaven when this life is over!!!
The Bible says that we can KNOW . . ."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, . . . ."
1 John 5: 13Note: Eternal life, going to heaven, being born again and beingsaved all have the same meaning in scripture.
What did the people in the above verse
1. Who HE is - "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
2. Why HE came to earth -"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." |
John 3: 17
"For the Son of man (JESUS) is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
Luke 19: 10
3. HE was crucified -".....And they took Jesus, and led him away. 17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 18 Where they crucified him,......"
John 19: 16-18
4. HE was resurrected -"And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him."
Mark 16: 6
5. HE went back to heaven -".....Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."
Acts 1: 11
6. HE will return for us who believe in HIM -".... I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
JESUS speaking John 14: 2-3
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
I Thess 4: 16-17
If you can believe that JESUS (the SON of GOD) came to earth, was crucified, resurrected, returned to heaven and will someday come back for us who believe in HIM?
And you realize that life in heaven is not attained by good behavior, charitable deeds, or church membership.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast."
Eph. 2: 8-9
Then you need to confess (acknowledge) your belief to GOD in prayer, claiming the promise HE made to us.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Rom. 10: 13
Then you need to confess (tell someone) about your saving faith in JESUS.
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Rom. 10: 9-10
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven."
JESUS speaking in Matt 10: 32
Note: Your eternal life can never be lost!
"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Rom. 8: 38-39
You can pray your Prayer for Salvation to GOD right now, wherever you are. You do not have to be in church or in the presence of a preacher or priest. Your prayer does not have to be long or elaborate. Simply tell GOD that you know what HE has provided for you through HIS SON, JESUS and that you want the eternal life that HE has promised in HIS WORD.
As soon as possible you need to tell someone that GOD has saved you and you know there is a place reserved for you in heaven!!

Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you in heaven!
