How do you know you are going to heaven? this is very good Christian for the winch many people do not have an answer. When we study the Bible we can find out that God will decide things very differently that our society does. Do you know you are going to heaven? What does it take for you to make it to heaven ? Can one be sure they are going to heaven ? Why will God send some people to hell ? Do you know you are going to heaven ?
Do you know you are going to heaven? What is sin?
If you want to know how to go to heaven, one needs to know what sins is . The bible says that sin is the transgression of the law. That because of one sin we deserve to die and be destroyed forever. Why ? The bible says the wages of sins is death . The penalty for one sin is eternal destruction . But God because of his great love with which He loved us took our penalty and died in our place . So that you do not need to go to hell and die on the cross.
1 JN 3 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. EPH 2 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved; RO 6 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
To know what the story of reception is about we can know that the judgment that is taking place now is deciding peoples destiny forever . Only God knows who will make it to heaven. Do you know you are going to heaven? But the good news is that with keeping the law you do not go to heaven automatically . In fact doing works will not save you . We will see that later on.
This is called righteousness by faith . Many people think that obeying is enough . Obedience will not bring you to heaven. Do you know you are going to heaven? Nobody is good, nobody is righteous. Then the most powerful experience the bible called righteousness by faith is necessary
You can say all good people go to heaven But the bible says nobody is good. There is none good not one . In fact the only good people on earth are those who realize that there is nothing good in them . Many religious people will not make it to heaven. God does not mark someone profession as valid. Many religious people are very proud,selfish, arrogant, legalists. These traits of character will never make someone go to heaven. Do you know you are going to heaven? If you have Jesus righteousness then it is the only way to go to heaven.
Do you know you are going to heaven? The sins
If you follow society you might think that all religious people go to heaven and all those who do not spend time with God will end up in hell. It is more complicated than this . TO go to heaven one needs to be like Jesus . Who is Jesus like ? Jesus is humble, kind, honest, loving, merciful, meek and lowly . These are only a few of the traits of character we need to have to go to heaven . Do you know you are going to heaven?
Unless you resemble Jesus in character you Wil never enter heaven. In heaven there will be no proud person, no arrogance, no selfish, no liars, no unkind or rude person . What you are when you die is what you will be for eternity . The coming of Jesus will never change your defects of character. This is a great hoax in modern Christianity . Many think that Jesus will remove their defects of character when He returns . Nowhere does the bible say that.
The bible does say that Jesus will transform our bodies . But Jesus will not remove pride or selfishness or another defect we did not take the time to remove or did not want to give up . The time to be cleansed from sin is now . When you die it will be too late. Jesus says in heaven. The bible says that the unrighteous will not enter heaven.
Unrighteous is people who deceive, people who are disloyal. People who are ready to lie to advantage themselves. People who are ready for all kind of manipulations to get their way and hurt others.
1 CO 6 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
If you go back to my post on fornication is not a sin in the bible . We understand that fornication the word never means sex out of marriage . This is a belief that has creped in the modern churches which is not biblical . The word in 1611 when the bible was written means Idolatry, spiritual harlotry, and all the sins that are listed in Leviticus chapter 15 to 18. In a modern dictionary it says fornication is sex out of marriage . But the meaning of the word has changed since the bible was written. What was the meaning o the word in 1611 ? It refers to all the sexual sins of le 15 to 18 sex out of marriage is not mentioned.
We see clearly on the other hand that liars will not enter heaven. Two of the sins that will make you not enter heaven are to be dishonest and proud . Nobody dishonest can enter heaven as this person is not good, this person lies because they want to get their way before others. They are selfish also, they prefer to deceive people and get their way rather to follow truth .
Did you know there is never a time when one needs to lie. Some very famous and rich people are honest people . They did not need to lie to succeed. It is true that some liars can advance faster in life if they are liars. But God can take away the riches gained by deception faster that it was accumulated.
Do you know you are going to heaven? Following society
Society thinks that because you follow human laws you will make it to heaven. God requires us to follow human laws and to be obedient to authority But God never says by doing so it will make you go to heaven. Someone can follow all human laws are still be proud, dishonest and unloving. This person will never enter heaven.
Nobody will be punished for being proud, selfish, rude or unkind on earth . We see then that Gods kingdom is very different that earth kingdoms which pass away and fade from existence. This is not to say that you do not flow earthly laws. But these laws will not make to to become a good person . Especially we need to obey because of love not because of fear. Jesus said give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesarea.
MT 22 21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
This is where a lot of contusion comes from . Obey human laws, but understand that unless your love for God and others exceed this you will not enter heaven. Do you know you are going to heaven? Then you Wil need to read the bible often to know what does God requires of you .
MT 5 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
MI 6 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Do you know you are going to heaven? You know if you are not a Pharisee
Do you know you are going to heaven? Who were the parishes
What is a Pharisee? A Pharisee is someone that thinks that by doing they gain the favour of God . A Pharisee thinks that they are good and holy . A Pharisee does not see their own condition . They can be evil, proud, rude, unkind yet theses serious defects are blinded to their eyes. A Pharisee loves to look at others, judge others.
For a Pharisee others are always wicked and evil. A Pharisee is very proud , a Pharisee can do evil for one month and one good deed in his mind will atone for his evil the which is downplays as not important . A Pharisee is always judging and condemning very hardly others. This is where it all comes down to who will make it to heaven my friend as no Pharisee will enter heaven
MT 23 hen spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
Here are a few of the rebukes Jesus had for them . Did you know that the bible uses the word proud and evil almost as having the same meaning ?
PR 8 13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Evil and bring proud is the same thing . It doe snot matter if the person is atheist or Christian . All proud people are wicked and evil . This is one trait of the Pharisee. A proud person cannot love others and themselves at the same time . They love themselves too much to love others. A Pharisee is very judgmental . A loving child of God is merciful and leaves all judgment to God . But by their fruits you shall know them Do you know you are going to heaven?
Judge not according to this world and you will not be judged. But we shall judge angels when we see someone fruits. More on that in future articles .
Do you know you are going to heaven? Righteousness
The goal my friend is to realize you and all humans we are sinners. Then the only solution is go receive righteousness or power to do good from God . There is no other solution . Yet millions of Christians and religious people seek power to do good in themselves. This is a great deception . As long as you think there is goodness in you . You will waste time trying to save yourself by your works .
No works count for eternal life. Your works are only saying Jesus i love you It is not the works the problem. It is fro what reason you do the works. Do you work to ave yourself or because you love Jesus . If we are saved by works then it is no more of grace. It cannot be both of them . And this question Do you know you are going to heaven? Can be answered when one experienced this message which is more an experience than a message .
You can only enter heaven with Jesus robe of righteousness . Many will try to enter with their works and accomplishments. But those works were done selfishly they worked just because they thought those works will gain them entrance to heaven. They did not really love God or others. All they did during their lives were done to benefit themselves. It was all a deception . Righteousness by faith teaches we do things for others and God because we love others and God .
Do you know Jesus really loves and cares for you. He died so that you could live forever Repeat after me Father God forgive my sins, come into my heart, give me your righteousness. Heal and bless me please in the name of Jesus amen
Do you know you are going to heaven? The love of God
