How to know you are going to Heaven:
1. You must realize you are a sinner. Nobody likes to admit it, but each and every one of us has broken God’s laws found in the Bible.
Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. James 2:10 – Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
2. You must realize there is punishment for your sin. Just like people earn money (wages) for working, they also earn wages for being sinners! What are those wages?
Romans 6:23 – The wages of sin is death.
Revelation 20:14 – And Death and Hell were cast into the Lakeof Fire. This is the second death. The second death is eternal separation from God in the Lakeof Fire. God’s holiness demands this punishment of sin! Will this be your punishment?
3. You must realize there is nothing you can do to save yourself. Good works or kind deeds will never get a person to Heaven!
Ephesians 2:8-9 – By grace are ye saved through faith…Not of works. Isaiah 64:6 – We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness (or good deeds) are as filthy rags.
4. You must realize Jesus Christ became the payment for your sin. Jesus died on the cross for your sins.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 – Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures (the Bible); and…He was buried, and…He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
5. You must choose to repent of your sin and ask God to save you. To repent is to agree with God about your sin and to turn from it – a change of mind, which results in a change of action.
Ezekiel 18:30 – Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions (or sins).
Romans 10:13 – Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
