The Bible is very clear that you can be sure of heaven. 1 John 5:11-13 says this:
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
Notice the phrase “that ye may KNOW that you have eternal life.”
God does not want you to go through this life wondering if you will go to heaven when you die. He wants you to KNOW where you will spend eternity. The passage teaches that eternal life IS IN HIS SON. Jesus came to earth to die on Calvary’s cross to pay for your sins and for mine. The Bible teaches us that if you have the Son you have life. God wants you to trash your ideas about being good to get to heaven or trusting in your church or the sacraments. The only way to get to heaven is through Jesus Christ. In John 14:6 Jesus said this:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by Me”
In December of 1978, I put my trust in Jesus Christ alone. I went to Him in prayer and the best way I knew how I told Him I was sorry for my sins and I asked Him to come into my life and save me. I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior that night. Now I am sure of my eternal destiny. Not because I am a “good person” but because now I have the Son and the Bible clearly tells me “He that hath the Son Hath life.” Friend I encourage you to put your faith in Jesus Christ alone. You’ll be glad you did!
