How can I be sure that I will go to heaven?

The one thing that you need to be sure of is what is going to happen after you die. There is no doubt that death is real and no matter how tragic it may seem, it is so important that the passage through death is a body transformation into God’s beautiful kingdom.

There are a lot of people who say they don’t believe in God, or the church, yet still talk about going to heaven. This is because God has places in each person a desire to know about the afterlife.

If you want to be sure that you are going to heaven when you die there are a few steps you need to take.

  1. You need to believe that there is a God and that Jesus is the God the Son.
  2. You need to acknowledge to God that you agree with Him that you have thought, desired and have done things that are against what God stands for and you are sorry and are seeking His forgiveness.
  3. You need to believe that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for the wrong things you have done. That His resurrection from the dead will give you the confidence that what He has said and done true and reliable.
  4. You need to ask God to come into your life and He will place His Holy Spirit into you as a guarantee that you will be going to heaven.
  5. You should express you love and thanks to God ask Him to help you to grow in your understanding of God and your faith in Him.

If the following prayer expresses your heart’s desire, why not pray this prayer right now.

Dear Heavenly Father, I know that I have thought and done many things that were wrong. I believe that you love me and are willing to forgive me of my sins. Thank you that Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for my sins and I believe that he rose again from the dead. I am asking for your forgiveness and I want to receive your gift of eternal life. I do believe you love me and I am asking that you will help me grow in my faith and understanding. Amen.

A prayer is not just religious words, but an expression from your heart. God knows whether you were genuine and your ongoing desire is to grow in your understanding of God and to seek to serve Him.

If you prayed that prayer and meant it then there is great rejoicing in Heaven. It is worth celebrating.

It would be helpful for you if you found a church nearby that can help you grow in your faith in God. There will be many churches near you, but you need to find one that clearly teaches God’s word and where Jesus is honoured.

 

God’s truth
You can be absolutely certain that He will place His Holy Spirit in you guaranteeing that you are a part of God’s family.
The Devil’s deception
It is just a religious experience and has no real meaning.
