How to get to Heaven

How to get to Heaven

The most important thing in all the world is to know where you will spend eternity.There is a lot of confusion in people's minds as they try to understand how we got here, how will we survive and then what happens to us when we die.(Luke 16:19-31)
        The Bible is God's word to man, it reveals to us who God is, where we came from, and how to live life here on earth and then most importantly: "What happens to us when we die"
         The first step in your search for the truth, should be the most important one. That is to get it settled where you will spend eternity ! The other questions you may have, can be found in the Bible later. Nothing is more important than knowing where you will spend eternity, because sometimes death comes unexpected or sudden. I have known people to die in their sleep. I was a volunteer firemen for years, and I saw several people burned to death in  their sleep.
         It will not matter in eternity whether you were a Baptist, Methodist, Moravian ,etc. the only thing that matters now or in eternity is whether you know how to get to heaven. Just joining a church, being baptized, christening, trying to live a good life is not enough to get you into  Heaven.
         There are many religions. many churches, but only one way to Heaven, this fact is spoken in the Bible by Jesus Christ in St. 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. "
          There are not many ways, there are not even two ways to Heaven. There is only one way, and His name is Jesus. The Bible gives us the way:
          Why Do I need Jesus ?  Romans 5:12  "Wherefore, as one man (Adam) Sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
           (1) Because we all are sinners (Romans 3:23)
                " For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
                  We are sinners by birth and by choice. Adam and Eve the first man and woman became sinners by disobeying God in the beginning (Genesis 3:12) Therefore, every human being born into this world has a sinful nature (Romans 5:12) The sinful nature was passed down through them to everyone.
             (2) Because we are sinners, we are condemned (Romans 6:23)
                  " For the wages (payment) of sin is death."
                    "...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 9:27)
              (3) God loved us so much he gave His son, Jesus, to bear our sin and die in our place. 
                    "He hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21)  Hebrews 9 & 10 explain how the sacrifices were given in the Old Testament under the law.
                      "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation" (Hebrews 9:28) Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament Law and he was our sacrifice, once and for all.
                       " God commendeth (demonstrated) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
                       Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He  died in our place. He became our substitute, our sacrifice.
                    (4) To be able to go to Heaven, we must do what the Bible says-
                         Acts 16:30-31, the jailer ask Paul and Silas, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved ? And they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. "
                        Simply believe on Him, put your faith in Him, as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected from the dead. His resurrection powerfully assures us that we can claim everlasting life when we receive Jesus as our Savior.
                       St. John 1:12- "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.
                       Romans 10:13- "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"  Right now, wherever you are, pray to God. In Luke 18:13, this man prayed, : "God be merciful to me a sinner. "  Just pray something like this:
                       Dear God, I know  I am a sinner, I need to be saved. I believe Jesus died for me on the cross. I believe He shed His blood for me. I now receive Him as my savior, please forgive me of my sins. Thank you for saving me and for forgiving me of my sins. Please help me to live for you. In Jesus name, Amen.
                       Salvation is by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. This is how we get to Heaven. (St. John 3: 1-18) Joining a church will not save you, being baptized will not save you, doing the best you can will not save you. Remember, God does the saving.(Ephesians 2:8,9)
                         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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. "
                         Now, do not think you have to have a special feeling. We are not saved by our feelings, but, by faith.
                        After you are saved, there are 3 things you need to do.
                        1. Learn to pray-you talk to God.
                        2. Read your Bible- you will learn about God
                        3. Go to church- get baptized, and join the church
                        If we can help you, please e-mail us, if you have questions or need us to answer any questions you may have. We can help you find a church in your area that preaches and teaches the Bible.
                        Our church offers a free Bible correspondence study course that you can enroll in and complete by mail, it will help you get started right. We also have booklets that will help you in your spiritual life to get started. E-mail us and let us know if you have decided to accept Jesus Christ as your savior. This is how to get to Heaven.
