Who will be in Heaven, and will you be there?
There is a place called Heaven where chosen people will live forever with God in perfect bliss and happiness. There is also a place called Hell where many people will be thrown into the Lake of Fire where they will live forever in torment and pain never to be with God. How can one be absolutely sure he will go to heaven?
In the Holy Bible, God’s own Word to all people, He very plainly tells all people how they can be sure they will be with Him in Heaven. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:36 “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him." God makes it very clear that those who believe, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He is the second Person of the Holy Trinity, that He is God, that He lived the perfect and righteous life God demands of all people and imputes His righteousness as a free gift to all who trust in Him, that He died on the cross for the sins of the whole world, and that He rose from the dead three days later and earned eternal life which He gives as a free gift to all who believe and trust in Him, only those will inherit eternal life and live forever in heaven with God.
No one will get to heaven because of his good works, or by praying to Mary or saints, or because he died as a martyr, or because of anything he has tried to do to make himself acceptable to God so he could work his way to heaven.
Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, says, “For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:40
