If you died right now, are you 100% sure you would go to Heaven?
There are basically four things you need to understand from the Bible to have the
assurance that when YOU die YOU will go to Heaven.
EVERYONE IS A SINNER Romans 3:23 - “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory
of God.”The reason we come short of God’s glory (God’s righteousness or perfect nature)
is because “all have sinned”. “All” includes me and it also includes you. Sin is
nothing more than disobeying God - it’s not just murdering or stealing. For example,
Adam and Eve ate from the tree that God told them not to touch - that was the first
sin. So the first thing you must do is agree with the Bible and admit to God that
you are a sinner.
EVERONE OWES A SIN-DEBT Romans 6:23a - “For the wages of sin is death;” By wages,
the Bible means penalty or debt. There are consequences for our sin. Just as a criminal
must face punishment for his crime, so must we pay a penalty for our sin. This penalty
is death - an eternal death which is also called the Second Death.Revelation 20:14
- 15 - “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of
fire.”Secondly, you must realize that if you die in your sins, then you must pay
the penalty for sin by dying in Hell - forever.
EVERYONE’S SIN-DEBT HAS BEEN PAID Romans 6:23 - “For the wages of sin is death; but
the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Although sin brings
eternal death, God wants to give us eternal life. You must realize that you cannot
gain eternal life by going to church, being baptized, or by just being a good person.
As a matter of fact, it is a gift of God. You can’t buy or earn your way to Heaven.
Eternal life is obtained through Jesus Christ alone.John 14:6 - “Jesus saith unto
him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by
me.” Romans 5:8 - “But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.”So the third thing you must believe is that Jesus has
paid your sin debt by dying for you, and eternal life is only gained through Him.
EVERYONE CAN BE SAVED Although Jesus died to pay everyone’s sin debt, not everyone
is on their way to Heaven. You must personally receive God’s Gift of eternal life.
You must believe what Jesus has done for you, and ask Him to save you. Romans 10:9
- “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine
heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:13 -
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” If you would
like to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, simply bow your head
and humbly: 1. Admit to God that you are a sinner. 2. Tell Him you believe Jesus died
for you. 3. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins and save your soul. 4. Then believe
that He promised to save you.John 5:24 - “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.”
