So what was the question?
“If you were to die today,
are you 100% sure that
you would go to heaven?”
People have so much on their minds today, that they do not often think about that question. They have other decisions that seem to be more pressing, like:
“Where will I work?”
“Who should I marry?”
“Where will we live?”
These decisions are all very im-portant, and should not be hastily made; and yet, there is a decision that is even more important: “Where will YOU spend eternity?”
Since God created heaven, earth, and mankind, people must one day answer to Him. Are you ready? Are you sure that He is going to grant you entrance into heaven?
“I’m 95% sure!”
Why would you be almost sure, but not really completely sure? Why do you have some uncertainty about it?
“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” (Holy Bible, I John 5:13, KJV).
Do you see any uncertainty in that verse of Scripture? Why is there no doubt seen there? Because when you place your total belief and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, there is assurance in your soul. People doubt for several reasons. Sometimes because they have not really repented of their sins.
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Holy Bible, Luke 13:3, KJV)
“I’m doing the best I can!”
Repentance is NOT you trying to clean up your own life. If you try it on your own, you will always doubt whether you are saved; because you, like all of us, are a sinner.
“But WE ARE ALL as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away” (Holy Bible, Isaiah 64:6, KJV).
Repentance is YOU TURNING FROM YOUR SIN TO GOD with the sincere desire that He cleanse you.
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. (Holy Bible, Psalm 51:1-3, KJV)
There are too many people that come to God with no desire to be cleansed from their sin. Yes, they want to go to heaven — but they also want to continue in their sin. Do you have the desire for God to cleanse you and give you a new, transformed life?
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Holy Bible, Matthew 7:13,14, KJV).
“I’m just leaving that decision up to the Lord! Whatever He decides is okay with me.”
God has already said that He wants to save you.
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (Holy Bible, I Timothy 2:3,4, KJV).
Now it is YOUR decision. You stand condemned by your sin, until you receive the Lord Jesus Christ.
“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (Holy Bible, John 3:18, KJV).
“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (Holy Bible, I Corinthians 15:3,4, KJV)
Bow your head right now, repent of your sins, and accept the gift of salvation through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (Holy Bible, John 1:12, KJV).
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth. I do believe that you are the only Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave your precious blood to pay my sin debt; and then you arose from the grave the third day. I do now repent of my sins, and receive you as my Savior. Please forgive me, and save my soul. Please raise up my life from sin and shame, and use it now for your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
r — Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to
save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to now openly confess Him by getting baptized under the water at a good Bible-preaching church, and to faithfully attend the services there. If you will write to us, we have some excellent Bible Study booklets to help you learn more.
