Am I Going To Heaven?

How do you know if you’re going to heaven?

You can know that you’re going to heaven if you are trusting in God’s way to get you there. The Bible tells us that God has made a way for us to get eternal life and go to heaven. This good news is so certain that the Bible says we can actually know that we have eternal life.

But, what exactly is this good news?

God is offering salvation as a free gift to all who have sinned. Jesus, who lived a perfect life, took our sins upon Himself. Having risen from the dead and ascended into heaven, He offers mercy and new life to all who come to Him.

How do we get eternal life?

Each of us needs to realize that we have sinned and are in need of God’s forgiveness. The Bible says that we have all sinned. Also, we must believe God’s word that says that our sins separate us from God, which results in death and permanent separation from Him. Then, we need to trust God’s way to save us.

When you believe God’s good news for you in Jesus, you are immediately made right with God and given a new life. That is how you can know you’re going to heaven. Our confidence about going to heaven is not based upon our works or on our goodness, but only on God’s promise of mercy and of eternal life to all who turn away from their sin and who come to Him to be forgiven.

Is the Coronavirus One of God’s Judgements?

Ever since Jesus Christ’s ascension, God’s judgements continue unabated through Him. Revelation 5 says that He was worthy to open the seals, which bring calamities upon people. Seals opening, trumpets sounding and bowls being poured out are all God’s judgements on those who reject Him.

Today’s mega fires, plagues of locusts, volcanoes erupting, virus outbreaks, wars, etc. are very likely judgements on a world that rejects God, and especially the good news of His Son. As the Bible says, ‘Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him’ (Psalm 2:12).

Those who are born again should not fear the Coronavirus, because we are Christ’s. Regardless of how we die, we will live. Those who reject God should fear Him, because He has power over their souls too.

Our temporary existence is an unmerited and merciful opportunity given to us so that we might reconnect with our God.

Humans do not become sinners, but are, instead, by virtue of being part of the fallen human family, innately sinful from the moment of conception (Psalm 51:5).

Being part of the fallen human family, all of us are, from the moment of our conception, already spiritually ‘dead in our trespasses and sins’ (Ephesians 2:1).
