According to Hebrews 9:27 in the Bible, “...it is appointed unto man once to die....” Death is inevitable.
Where would you go if you died today? My friend, Heaven is a real place, and you can know for certain that you are going there.
I John 5:13 says, “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....”
How can you know the way to Heaven? The answer Jesus Christ gives us in His Word is found in John 14:6. “...I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
God loves you and wants you to go to Heaven when you die. Here are the things you must understand and believe in order to know the only way to Heaven.
Everyone was born into this world with a sin nature. You cannot get to Heaven on your own because of your sin. Our sin separates us from God.
Romans 3:10, “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”
Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23, “For the wages [payment] of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
If you try to pay what you owe as a sinner, you must spend eternity in Hell, separated from God. Baptism, church membership, or any other good works are not sufficient to pay the price for your sin.
Romans 5:8-9, “But God commendeth [shows] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath [Hell] through him.”
If you believe that Jesus is the Son of God who died for you, was buried, and rose again, then forgiveness is just a prayer away.
II Corinthians 7:10, “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation....”
Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.
Romans 10:9, “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.”
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sin and ask you to forgive me. Please come into my heart to be my personal Savior. Thank you for saving me now and giving me eternal life in Heaven. Help me to live for you from this day forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
