Will you know you are going to heaven?

Those who 'know' they are going to heaven know this only as a matter of faith, and faith alone. Others have a different knowledge - that heaven is an imaginary place and that no one will go to heaven. Each person may choose what to believe, but no one can know, in the absolute sense, that he or she is going to heaven..

To go to heaven, one needs to accept Our Blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and EVERYTHING that He said. He said, quite plainly, in appointing His apostles (the first Bishops of the Church) everyone who accepts you, accepts ME; everyone who rejects you, rejects ME, and the ONE who sent ME. Thus, to gain heaven is to follow Christ in His Church (the holy Catholic Church), to take up one's cross daily and follow Him. We are to conform our lives to His, and this includes His complete subjection to the Father's Will, and His very death on the cross. Unless we die to ourselves, we will never find life.

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian. It's not about that, or about how much you tithe. It's about a personal relationship with yourself and Christ Jesus.
You can know for sure by calling on Jesus. The Word of God (the Bible) says "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). It also says "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). If you would like to receive the gift that God has for you, say this prayer with your heart and your lips out loud: "Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Forgive me of my sin. Wash me and cleanse me. Set me free. Jesus thank You that You died for me. I believe that You have risen, and that You're coming back again for me. Fill me with the Holy Spirit, give me a passion for the lost, a hunger for the things of God, and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am saved, I am born again, I am forgiven, and I am on my way to Heaven, because I have Jesus in my heart."
If you said that prayer, then as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I tell you today that all of you sins are forgiven right now. And always remember to run to God and not from Him because He loves you and has a great plan for your life.
