How to get to Heaven?
God wants you to know that you have eternal life. I John 5:13, "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."
To know for sure, you must understand the following:
1. You must realize you are a sinner.
Romans 3:13, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Even though it is difficult to admit, every one of us sin and because we sin, we are sinners.
Romans 5:12, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned;"
2. You must realize that the payment of sin is Hell.
Romans 6:23a, "For the wages of sin is death..."
Because we are sinners, we are going to Hell,
Revelation 20:11-15, " And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 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."
3. You must realize that Jesus loves you and that He does not want you to go to Hell.
Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
4. In order to go to Heaven you must receive God's greatest gift.
Romans 6:23b, "...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
5. To receive God's eternal life, you must ask for it.
Romans 10:9-10, "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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
So, now that you know:
a. You are a sinner
b. Because you are a sinner, you are going to Hell
c. God loves you so much, He does not want you to go to Hell, and he sent His Son Jesus to die for you.
d. You know that all you have to do is call on Him, believing with your heart, to accept His gift (eternal life) and you will be saved.
Now all you have to do is pray and believing on Him and ask Him to save you. Pray something like this:
I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve Hell. Today I am asking you to save me. I am trusting you and only you to take me to Heaven.
Thank you for saving me and taking me to Heaven when I die. In Jesus' name, Amen.
