How Does A Person Get To Heaven? By David J. Stewart | May 2002 | Updated April 2016 Do you know for sure my friend, that if you died today, you would go to heaven? If you ask most people this question, they simply aren’t sure. Most people I have witnessed to over the years “thought” they were going to heaven, but they were not sure. How sad! How tragic! Billions of people throughout the world do NOT have the blessed assurance of salvation. Oh, listen to me friend! You can KNOW beyond the shadow of any doubt that you are a Child of God. 1st John 5:13 states, “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.” What a privilege it always is for me to share with people the wondrous truth of God’s Word, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life. God loves people!!! God wants you to be His Child. He will not force you to be saved, you alone must make that decision for Christ. NOTE: All Scriptures are quoted from the King James Bible. It is very easy to be saved―Simply BELIEVE THE GOSPEL Oh sinner! You must know that you are a “sinner” to be saved. Otherwise why would you need a Savior? We are all sinners. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Years ago I heard in the news that the leaders of the country of France denied being “SINNERS.” They admitted to having “faults,” but declared to the world that they are “not sinners.” They are liars! 1st John 1:8-10 teaches that anyone who denies being a SINNER is a liar and the truth is not in them (they are not saved). The purpose of God’s law is stated in Romans 3:19, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Galatians 3:24, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” God’s law is a measuring stick, by which when men compare themselves they fall short of the glory of God, which is total moral perfection. No human being, except the Lord Jesus Christ, has ever lived a perfect life. ALL MANKIND ARE SINNERS. We are sinners by nature and by choice. Everyone commits sin! Thus, we need a Savior, someone else to pay our debt of sin. God in His unconditional love sent His only begotten Son into the world, to be rejected, beaten, mocked and spit upon, crucified upon a cross FOR OUR SINS! Jesus was buried and then bodily raised up three days later. The Holy Bible in 1st Corinthians 15:-14 defines “THE GOSPEL”: 1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” With this precious passage of Scripture in view, it ought to be obvious how unbiblical and inaccurate many of the religious teachings that we hear these days are concerning salvation! It is common nowadays on religious radio to hear such inaccurate statements concerning salvation as: “Ask Jesus into your heart,” or “Invite Jesus into your life,” or “Declare ‘Jesus is Lord’ to be saved,” or “Turn from sin,” or “Follow Jesus Christ,” or “Make Jesus the Lord of your life” to become God’s child, et cetera. NONE of these constitute THE GOSPEL!!! Judas followed Christ, being one of His very hand-picked apostles. Yet, Judas went to Hell in unbelief. The unsaved Pharisees were the respected religious leaders of Israel. Religion cannot get a person into Heaven. In Acts 10:1-2, a centurion (commander over 100 soldiers) named Cornelius was religious but unsaved—he was a devout man who feared God, prayed always, and gave alms to the poor, but he was lost and on his way to the Lake of Fire. Please don’t miss that important truth! All around the world, churches are filled with good people who love God and love their neighbour, praying to God and giving to the poor; yet they have never been born-again by the Holy Spirit of God. Satan’s greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. We learn that Cornelius got saved later in Acts chapter 10, praise the Lord!: Acts 10:39-40 and 43-44, “And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom [Jesus] they slew and hanged on a tree [the cross]: Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly … To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.” When a person believes the Gospel (or receives the Gospel as full-payment for their sins), i.e., believing on the Lord Jesus Christ Who died on the cross for their sins and resurrected three days later, THEY ARE SAVED!!! The Bible calls this, “THE HEARING OF FAITH.” The apostle Paul wrote a letter of concern to the church at Galatia. Paul said he only wanted to know ONE THING, that is, How did they get the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (i.e., How did they get saved?): Galatians 3:2, “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit [Holy Spirit] by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” In other words, when you hear the Gospel preached, if you BELIEVE what you hear, you are saved. To be “saved” means to be “born-again” into God’s heavenly family. Jesus warned everyone in John 3:3 that “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Have you been born anew friend, by the Holy Spirit of God, by faith in the Gospel? Hebrews 4:2 says that the Jews in the Wilderness heard Moses preach the Gospel Hebrews 4:2, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” When a person hears the Gospel and believes it, they are saved. It is that easy and simple to be saved. Please notice that there is no mention in Acts 10:39-44 or Galatians 3:2 or Hebrews 4:2 about turning from sins or praying a prayer or getting water baptized or speaking in tongues or making Jesus Lord of your life to be saved. Clearly, many modern churches and religious teachers have strayed woefully from the Gospel as taught in the Holy Scriptures!!! This is why, Biblically, many people will be woefully horrified in eternity when they are denied entrance through the pearly gates of Heaven. Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”
