How to Know You are Going to Heaven

Is it possible to really know where you will go when you die?  Yes!

1.   God wants you to know you have eternal life.

I John 5:13 says, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”

2.   Religion and good works cannot get you to Heaven.

Ephesians 2:9 says, “Not of works, lest anyone should boast.” 

Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”

Romans 5:8-9 also says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then having now been justified by His blood, we hall be saved from wrath through Him.”

3.   You must personally accept the gift of salvation in order to go to Heaven.

Acts 16:31 says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved; you and your household.”

4.   You must place your faith in the finished work that Jesus accomplished on the cross.

Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.”

5.   You place your faith in Jesus by asking Him to forgive and save you from the penalty of your sins.

Romans 10:9, 13 say, “That 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.”

(13)  says, “For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

6.  Ask Jesus Christ to save you from the penalty of your sins, and ask Him to make you a Christian.

Pray something like this, but making this a prayer from your heart to God:

 “Lord Jesus, forgive me for all my sins.  My sins are what You died for.  You took the punishment I deserved.  You did this because You loved me even though I don’t deserve it.  Please come into my life, Lord Jesus, I now accept you as my personal Lord and Savior.   Please save my soul and make me Your child.  I want to live for you the rest of my life.  Thank you for making me a Christian and giving me eternal life.  I praise you that I know I’m going to Heaven because I am forgiven. 

In Jesus name I pray, Amen
