How to know for sure you are going to heaven
I was about to leave her room when she grabbed my hand.
The 98 year old lady pulled me close as to tell me a secret that she didn’t want anybody to know.
“I am scared to
Her words have stayed with me all these years and I wonder, how many people are out there not sure if they are going to heaven when they die.
Just like her, millions of people are afraid of dying, even Christians are afraid of dying.
I can understand why people that are not saved are afraid, but people that are saved should not be afraid of dying.
If you are a Christian and you are afraid of dying, I’m going to show you why you should not be afraid and if you are not a Christian I’m going to show you how you can go to heaven.
What is Heaven?
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.Revelation 21:4
This is just one of the descriptions of heaven that we find in the Bible. If we continue reading the book of Revelations we also find that there is a city with streets of gold and there is a river of life that flows from God’s throne.
There are also rooms or homes that Jesus is preparing for us (John 14:2). There is no need for light because God Himself is light and we will be able to see His face.
Heaven is a place where we will be with our Daddy God and we will be able to enjoy all the beauty and all the goodness that He has prepared for us.
In heaven there is no cancer, no drugs, no infidelities, no broken hearts. Death is no more, suffering is no more, only happiness, joy, peace, love and life.
Heaven is our happily ever after. Where we are happily reunited as a family, The Father with all His children. Is a glorious place and a glorious moment that we should all look forward to.
Who goes to Heaven?
There are a lot of different beliefs about who goes to heaven.
One of them is that since we are all created by God we are all children of God and we are all going to heaven. This belief is wrong, yes, we were all created by God but not all of us are children of God.
So, not everybody is going to heaven.
Another belief is that if you are a good person you will go to heaven. I am glad you are a good person but that won’t get you into heaven.
There is only one truth and only one way to heaven: Jesus
Heaven is the beautiful dwelling place of those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Only those who are saved will go.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
What do you have to do to go to heaven?
All you have to do to go to heaven is to confess and believe in Jesus, that He is the Son of God that came to pay with his death for all your sins.
(If you want to know more about why Jesus came and the about the gift of salvation go check out this post: How to share the gospel. There you can find the love story of God for you and you can understand better.)
The bible tells us that if you truly believe with your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.
After you have done this, you can be sure that you are going to heaven. Because Jesus is the only way to heaven.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Prayer to go to heaven
Prayer is not hard, prayer is just a conversation with God. Sometimes we make things more complicated than they really are.
If you are ready for Jesus to come to your life, and for the peace of knowing that you will go to heaven you can find a prayer here.
You never have to fear death again
When you give your life to Jesus your life is forever changed. Not only in this life but for eternity as well.
The day that you close your eyes here for the last time on earth, you will open them in heaven. What a glorious day that will be!!!
