GOD’S PROVISION FOR ENTERING HEAVEN
“Are you going to heaven?” Many people answer this question with an uncertain response: “I hope so.” It is possible for an individual to know with complete certainty that they will go immediately to heaven when they die. This certainty comes through believing and accepting four Bible truths. Please allow me to share those truths with you.
We are all sinners.
Sin is disobedience to any of God’s laws. No person lives a sinless life. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned.” There is a penalty for sin. Romans 6:23 declares that “the wages of sin is death.” In this verse, death refers not only to physical death, but it also refers to eternal death which is separation from God in Hell.
Christ died for our sins.
Romans 5:8 tells us that “Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ is God. While He has always existed, at a point in time about 2000 years ago (the first Christmas), Jesus took a human body and came into this world through human birth to a virgin named Mary. As this unique God-Man, after living 33 sinless years, He allowed Himself to be crucified on a cross. When Jesus did this, He was punished for our sins so we would not have to be punished for them.
We must repent and believe.
We must be willing to turn from our sins and personally receive Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. When we repent and personally ask Jesus to be our Savior, we become a child of God and have a home in heaven guaranteed for us. John 1:12 tells us that “as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons (children) of God.”
