Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus
said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”
In the Bible God gives us the plan of how
to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple!
You can be saved today. How?
you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned, and come short of
the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Because you are a sinner, you are
condemned to death. “For the
wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).
This includes eternal separation from God in Hell. “ . . . it
is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear
your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him [Jesus,
Who knew no sin] to be sin for us . . . that we might be
made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and
die. “For the life
of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . .
without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22)
“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans
5:8). Although we cannot understand
how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and
He died in our place. He became our substitute.
It is true. God cannot lie.

Dear friend, “God . . . commandeth all men everywhere to repent”
(Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees
with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the
In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer
asked Paul and Silas: “ . . . ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’
And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be
saved . . . .’ ”
Simply believe on Him as the one
who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God
resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the
believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior.
“But as many as received Him, to
them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them
that believe on His name” (John 1:12).
“For whosoever shall call
upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved
means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.
Surely, you realize you are a sinner.
Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: “God be
merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner.
I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed
blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my
Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and
everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”
Just take God at His word
and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved.
No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the
saving. All of it!
God’s simple plan of salvation is:
You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in
your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your
crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your
sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.
You say, “Surely, it cannot be that
simple.” Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. Believe
on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.
If His plan is not perfectly clear,
read this tract over and over, without laying it down, until you
understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.
“For what shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
Be sure you are saved. If you lose your
soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very
God’s power will save you, keep
you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. “There
hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful,
Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the
temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”
(1 Corinthians 10:13).
Do not trust your feelings. They
change. Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are
saved, there are three things to practice daily for spiritual
- Pray -- you talk to
