Are YOU Going To Heaven?


~Let's find out;

Are you going to Heaven because you are trying to keep the Law and the Commandments?

...No, because it is impossible to get to Heaven this way.  Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.


Are you going to Heaven because you give to charitable causes, you live a good life and you are doing your best?

...No, because these things could never save anyone. Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 


Are you going to Heaven because you do good works, you try to obey the "golden rule' or you Tithe or give money to the church?

...No, because good works cannot save anyone.  Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.


Are you going to Heaven because you are a faithful member of your church, you pray or you fast?

...No, because no one can be saved by works, no matter how good or well intended. Only by God's mercy and grace can anyone be saved.  Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.


Are you going to Heaven because you were sprinkled as an infant, you've been baptized or you've partaken of  Communion?

...No, because infant sprinkling is not even scriptural and water baptism and communion are church ordinances for those who are already saved. It is not OUR work that saves us but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.  Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.


Are you going to Heaven because you were born of Christian parents?

...No, because this simply cannot save anyone. John 3:6-7 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.


Are you going to Heaven because you've experienced confirmation, observed penance, or extreme unction?

...No, because these are man-made doctrines and are not taught in the Word of God. Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men


If YOU go to Heaven one day, there are some important steps YOU must take.

~First, you must admit that you are a sinner and repent of your sin to God...Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; / Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. / Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

~Next, you must place your faith and trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ to save you...1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

~Finally, you must pray and call on the name of the Lord Jesus to save you from your sin...Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.


Will YOU accept Jesus Christ as YOUR own personal Lord and Savior before it's eternally too late for YOU?
