How To Get to Heaven - from anywhere - 5 Steps



STEP # 1 - Know who Christ Is:

"I came forth from God." (Gospel of John, chapter 8, verse 42). "Before Abraham was, I AM." (John 8:58). I came from the Father into the world, and I plan to return to the Father." (John 16:28). "He that believes on me, believes not just on me, but on Him who sent me. He who perceives me, perceives Him who sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whoever abides in me should not abide in darkness. I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects me and my message will be judged."(John 12:44-48). "He who has seen me has seen the Father." (John 14:9). "I and the Father are one." (John 10:30). "The works I do in my Father's name, they prove who I am." (John 10:25.

STEP # 2 - Know who you really are.

"I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:32). "You should love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. You should love your neighbor as yourself." (Matt 22:37-39) "Why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and not do the things that I say?" (Luke 6:46). "He who doesn't believe is already condemned." (John 3:18). "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:5). "I came to seek and to save the lost." (Luke 19:10).

STEP # 3 - Christ died for our sins, and arose alive again.

"I came to give my life a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45). "The Son must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and religious writers, and be slain, and be raised the third day." (Luke 9:22). "I lay down my life that I may take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. This power is from God, the Father." (John 10:17-18). "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son be lifted up, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:14-15).

STEP # 4 - Repent. Turn from Self-reliance and Self-rule to Christ.

"Unless you believe that I am He (the savior), you will die in your sins." (John 8:21,24). "Enter at the straight gate, for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many try to enter there. But straight is the gate, and narrow is the way that leads to eternal life, and few find it." (John 7:13-14). "Those who worship God must worship Him in spirit, and in truth." (John 4:24). "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever will save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake, will save it. For what is a man advantaged if he gain the whole world, and lose his soul?" (Luke 9:23-26).

STEP # 5 - Trust Christ to save you, and lead you.

"Whoever comes to me, I will not cast away." (John 6:37). "I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly." (John 10:10). "He who hears my word, and believes on God who sent me, has everlasting life, shall not come into condemnation, but has passed from death unto life." (John 5:24). "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosover believes on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (Jn 3:16)

SUMMARY - Did you understand the message that Christ gave? There were five basic points:
#1 - A holy, loving God is interested in you, and personally sent His son to show you His plan for eternity...... #2 - People are in a state of selfish "lostness", unfit for heaven, unable to please God, helpless & in trouble. #3 - Jesus Christ took our punishment, dying for our sins on the cross, and then he rose from the dead........... #4 - We must consider these things, and then "repent", being willing to turn from selfishness to follow him.... #5 - By faith, call out to Him, asking Him to forgive you, save you, and put His spirit inside you. Pray & Sign:

"Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner. Jesus, I believe that you died for my sins and rose again. Come into my life, forgive me and save me. I want to trust you, completely, forever."_________________________

"Whosoever shall call opon the name of the Lord, shall be saved." (Romans 10:13). "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin." (1st John 1:9) "These things are written to them who believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life." (1st John 5:13).
