YOU CAN KNOW FOR SURE

THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU DIE!

When asked the question, "Where will you spend eternity," most people say they 'hope' or 'think' they will spend it in Heaven. They are not positive where they will spend eternity. However, I John 5:12-13 says

I Jn 5:12-13So whoever has God's Son has life; whoever does not have his Son, does not have life.I have written this to you who believe in the Son of God so that you may know you have eternal life. (TLB)

YOU HAVE A CHOICE!

It is a common misconception that by being baptized or doing good works, you will be guaranteed a place in heaven. Jesus declared in John 3:3:

John 3:3Jesus replied, "With all the earnestness I possess I tell you this: Unless you are born again, you can never get into the Kingdom of God."(TLB)

It is not what we've done, but what God has done for us that will secure our salvation. Ephesians 2:8 says:

Eph 2:8Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God.(TLB)

Eternal life, or salvation, is a free gift from God…you can not earn it.

It takes more than just believing there is a God to secure salvation.

The Bible says that even the demons in hell believe there is a God, and yet, they will not be saved.

The answer is in God's Word. Romans 10:9-10 says:

Rom 10:9-10For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God; and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation.(TLB)

Salvation comes through believing in your heart that Jesus is the Son of God and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.

If you believe in your heart that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for your sins and rose again, you can know for sure that you will go to Heaven. If you pray the prayer below, and mean it with all your heart, you will be saved and know that you have eternal life…That's a promise from God Himself.

Pray this prayer…

"God in Heaven, I know I'm a sinner and I need your help. I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is your Son, that He died on the cross for my sins and that God raised Him from the dead. Jesus, right now I open my heart and invite you to come in. Make yourself real to me. I give you control of my life. Keep me from evil and make me the person You want me to be. Be my Lord and Savior. Amen"

Attend church regularly, Hebrews 10:25 Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near. (TLB)

NOW THAT YOU HAVE JESUS IN YOUR HEART, HE IS PREPARING A PLACE FOR YOU IN HEAVEN!

John 14:2There are many homes up there where my Father lives, and I am going to prepare them for your coming. When everything is ready, then I will come and get you, so that you can always be with me where I am. If this weren't so, I would tell you plainly.(TLB)
