What God Says You need to know to go to heaven

What God Says You Need to Know to Go


These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life...1 John 5:13


1. Everyone Is a Sinner

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

Romans 3:10 "As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one."

The reason we "come short" of God's glory (God's righteous or perfect nature) is because "All have sinned." "ALL" includes everyone.

First of all, you must agree with the Bible and admit that you are a sinner.

James 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point is guilty of all."


2. Everyone Owes a Sin-Debt.

Romans 6:23a "For the wages (Penalty or debt) of sin is death..."

This is speaking of eternal death, which is also called "the second death."

Revelation 30:14-15 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.  This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Secondly, you must realize that if you die in your sins, you must pay the penalty for sin by dying in Hell forever.

Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."


3. Everyone's Sin-Debt Has Been Paid.

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Although sin brings eternal death, God wants to give us eternal life. Notice that eternal life is not through going to church, being baptized, or being a good person, but it is "through Jesus Christ."

Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

II Corinthians 5:21 "For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made righteousness of God in Him."

John 3:16 " For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "

John 3:18 "He that believeth on Him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God"

The third thing you must believe, is that Jesus has paid the wages of sin by dying for you, and eternal life is only through Him.


4. Everyone Can Be Saved.

Although Jesus died to pay everyone's sin-debt, not everyone is on their way to Heaven. You must personally receive God's gift of eternal life. You must believe in your heart, and ask Jesus to save you.

Roman's 10:9-10 " That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

John 1:12a "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God..."


Heaven is a free gift that is offered to you by Jesus Christ. All you must do to go to Heaven is receive Jesus as your Saviour, for He is the Way and the Door into Heaven.

If you would like to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, simply bow your head right now and humbly pray:

Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner and deserve to go to hell,  but I trust you and what you did on the Cross, to pay for all my sins. I ask you to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank You Jesus, Amen.
