Repost of Are you 100% sure that you are going to go to heaven when you die?

28 Aug

I know I posted this before but I feel it needs to be brought up from time to time for those who are new.

 

Are you 100% sure that you are going to go to heaven when you die?

 
And I copied this off from my church’s tract.
Are you 100% sure that if you died today,you would go to Heaven?
1.We All Have Sinned
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of god.” Romans 3:23
We are all sinners by nature and by choice. God sees all actions, thoughts, motives and places we go. We all feel guilty and ashamed of things in our lives.
2. We Have A Pentalty For Our Sin“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23a
Sin must be paid for. God says the payment is death. Jesus said there are 2 deaths:
(1) Physical DeathGod already knows the day we will die. We can’t avoid it-only prepare for it.
(2) Spiritual DeathThat’s when a soul dies unforgiven and pays for his own sins, and goes to Hell forever (by the way, Hell was not created for people but for the devil and demons). God doesn’t want anyone to go to Hell.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23b
God sent Jesus as His free gift to us so we could recieve Him and one day live in Heaven forever.
A gift can’t be bought or earned. It can only be recived. Forgiveness does not come through baptism, church, or good deeds. It can only come through receiving Jesus once and for all as a GIFT into our hearts by faith.
Yes Jesus did die for everyone-but not every person is going to Heaven-only those who receive Him. We either receive or reject Jesus Christ. There is no in between. No one is born with Him in their lives. He is a gentleman and won’t come in our heart unless invited.
3. We Can Have The Savior“But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
God chose to let Jesus pay for our sin by taking our place at the cross. He was spit upon, whipped, beard plucked and crucified. He loves you. He died, was buried, and arose after 3 days and is in Heaven making room for you. If you were the only sinner in the world, Jesus would have died just for you. He loves you!
To be honest, most people have never had a definite time, place and day to accept Jesus once and for all into their hearts. If it’s ever happened to you, you’d remember it! If you were to die unforgiven as you are, where does the Bible say you’d go? Is that what you want?
4. We Can Be Forgiven Now“For whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
If Jesus was willing to take you just as you are, wouldn’t you be willing to take Him, “just as He is”? Just ask Him now…
Let us help you word a prayer. (Remember it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ).
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus.
                        Amen
