HOW TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN!

The Bible clearly shows how a person can know that they are going to heaven.  You can know these truths.  Take the time to read the following to receive the greatest gift available to you.  Only you can do it for you!  It is a simple thing called FAITH! 

F is for FORGIVENESS

We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness.  The Bible says:  "In Him (meaning Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, and the forgiveness of sins.  Ephesians 1:7a

A is for AVAILABLE

Forgiveness is available.  It is?  Available for ALL!

I is for IMPOSSIBLE

It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.  BUT NOT AUTOMATIC  
In the Bible Jesus says:  "Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven."  Matthew 7:21
     GOD IS LOVE-
    "For God so loved the world, He gave His only Son, that whoever
      believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16
      JUST-
    "For judgement is without mercy."  James 2:13a
      MAN IS SINFUL-
       "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23

T is for TURN

TURN from something?  Sin and self.  The Bible says, "But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.  Luke 13:3b  TURN to Someone; trust Christ only.
     THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT
      "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and 
       rose again the third  the third day according to the Scriptures."  1 Corthians 15:3b
     THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS
     "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God
      has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10:9

    QUESTION

      If you  were driving down the road and someone asked you to turn, what would he or     
     she be asking you to do?  Simply, they would be asking you to change direction.
    TURN means repent.

H is for Heaven

HEAVEN is eternal life!  Heaven is HERE!
     IN THE BIBLE JESUS SAYS
      "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."           
       John 14:3
 
      The above shows you that you can be sure you are going to heaven by admitting           
      that you are a sinner, believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, and committing your life
     to Him.  You do this by coming to Him (Jesus Christ) in a conversation that is called 
     prayer.  If you would like to receive forgiveness of your sins and know for sure that
    you will go to heaven someday, you can pray this simple prayer:
 

 Dear Lord, I admit that I am a sinner.  I believe that Jesus died to forgive me for my sins.   I ask you to forgive me for my sins and give me eternal life.  I commit my life to following the teachings of Jesus Christ, and I thank you for saving me.  I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
