Where would you spend Eternity?
If you were to die today are you 100% sure that your soul would go to Heaven?
Why should God allow you to enter into His abiding place (Heaven)?
The Bible can give you the confidence of an eternal home in Heaven. I John 5:13 reads "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." This verse suggests that we can be totally and completely sure about where we will spend eternity. Where is the path that leads us to God? Where is the way to this confidence? Do you know it? Could you tell someone else where to find it? Would you believe that it is not found in good works? Would you believe that there is nothing that you can do to be worthy of it? Would you believe that it is not found in religion? Would you believe that is not found in anything that this world could offer (money, houses, drugs, alcohol, sex, television, movies, cars, relationships, etc...)? Continue reading and the path to confidence will clearly be shown!
To find this path of confidence one must know and accept four basic truths that even a child can understand.
1. One must realize that he is a sinner!
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (every one who has lived life has missed God's standerd of living to reach Heaven)
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
2. One must realize that his sin is enough to condemn him to hell for all eternity!
Romans 6:23a For the wages (payment) of (for) sin is death;
John 3:18 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. (this verse tells us that if you have never trusted in Jesus you are already condemned!)
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
3. One must realize the Christ is the only one who can wash all of his sins away!
John 3:16-17 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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
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.
Jesus is the only one that can be trusted to save us from our sin, and give us the confidence of eternal life.
4. One must call on and trust in the name of Jesus Christ!
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Once someone has realized these four truths and has accepted them in there heart as TRUTH, he or she has become a child of God (has become a Christian/ is saved). It is now God's responsibility to save but also to keep you for all eternity! These four truths, and only these four truths are the clear path to confidence in knowing that you will go to Heaven when you die. If you have any questions please contact us!
John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
