How To Know For Sure You’re going To Heaven?
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…”
First, you must realize that God’s Word says we are all sinners and our sin has separated us from a Holy God.
Romans 3:23 ” For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Isaiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you…”
Second, You must realize that as a sinner you owe a penalty.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages (payment) of sin is death…”, death is eternal separation from God, in the lake of fire.
Third, you must realize that Jesus Christ, God’s perfect sacrifice, has already paid our sin debt.
2 Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotte Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
When Jesus died on the cross, He paid for all of our sins and bridged the gap that separated us from God.
Fourth, you must receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and what He did for you at Calvary on the cross.
John 3:36, “He that beleiveth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
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 form the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Romands 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The word “believe” means to trust – to depend on. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ means that you accept the fact that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood to pay the debt you owe. It means to place your faith totally in Him forever to save you from hell, forgive your sins, and give you the gift of eternal life.
My friend, why not trust Jesus now and pray…
Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I deserve to pay my own sin debt, but I do believe that You died for me to payed the debt that I owe. Today, the best I know how, as my Saviour, I trust you to forgive me of all my sins and cleanse me with Your precious blood. I will depend on you from this moment on for my salvation. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving me the wonderful gift of eternal life and making me Your child. Amen
