  • How To Get To Heaven When You Die

    PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS. IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU COULD EVER DO AND IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES

    ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT IF YOU DIED TODAY THAT YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?

    There are some things that you should know:

    1. Realize that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior:

    Ro 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

    Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"

    It all began with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God created them perfect, there was no death or sorrow. God told them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed God and as a result, sin entered into the world. The pain, which this world sees, is the result of sin.

    2. Because of our sins, we die both spiritually and physically, but God sent His Son to die so that you can have a chance not to have to go to hell by accepting what He did on the cross:

    Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    Ro 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

    Every person who has ever lived is a sinner and is not righteous because we do bad things. A sin is a crime against God, just as if you steal something at the store, it is punishable by going to jail. It's the same thing with sin. Lying, stealing, sex before marriage, pride, hatred, ect. are all sins. Hell is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. That’s because you must be perfect in order to get to heaven. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already sinned, which will be punished if you are not pardoned. If you commit a crime, and then live as a good citizen you still will go to jail for the crime you committed. Right? Just as the President can pardon a crime so you won't go to jail, Jesus can pardon your sins so that you do not go to hell, and can go to heaven when you die. You won’t have to pay for your own sins because Jesus already did that for you. But if you reject the pardon that He offers, you will have to pay for your own sins by going to hell.

    3. If you will confess Jesus Christ as Your Lord, place your Faith in Him and Believe in your heart that He died, shed His blood and rose again as a sacrifice for your sins, you will be saved (from hell).

    Eph 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

    Ro 10:9,10 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.."

    You cannot get to heaven by being a good person, going to church, baptism or any other way other than by turning to Jesus, believing in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for your sins and placing your Faith in Him. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven, but your Faith must be in Christ and His sacrifice alone and nothing else, giving your life to Him.

    Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

    Romans 3:25 "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;"

    4. You must place your Faith in Jesus Christ believing in your heart that He died and rose again shedding His blood to pay for your sins as a sacrifice to God. If you want to accept Jesus free gift of salvation, or if you have any doubts about whether or not you are going to heaven, Pray this prayer from your heart to God in Faith:

    ”Dear Lord Jesus I believe that You are the Lord and believe in my heart that You died on the Cross and Rose from the dead, shedding your blood as a Sacrifice for my sins. I repent and turn to You as the only way of salvation, I give my life to you, placing my Faith and Trust in You as Lord of my life, Please save me and I thank You for it, in Jesus holy name, Amen.”


    If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven. Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism.

      No. I believe that we return to the dust awaiting the resurrection when Jesus returns.

        Where does the soul go?

          The first and important definition of the soul is in the following:
          Genesis 2:7 (KJV): And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
          Thus a living soul is a body with the breath. A dead soul is a body without breath.

          After sinning Adam was sentenced to return to the dust:
          Genesis 3:19 (KJV): In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
          It does not say that your body will return to the dust and immortal is your soul, and the real you, the immortal soul will go to heaven or hell at death. It says “dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return”.

          Apart from the resurrection, man would remain in the dust. The following is based upon the above clear Bible teaching that man was sentenced to die and return to the dust, but God will intervene and raise some from the dead:
          Daniel 12:2 (KJV): And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
          Thus I believe that the faithful dead are waiting in the graves to be resurrected at the return of Jesus. The use of the word "sleep" is figurative language and is explained by Jesus regaring the death of Lazarus.

          Kind regards

            Where is Enoch's Soul?

            "By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: "He could not be found, because God had taken him away." For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God" (Heb. 11:5).

            Where is Elijah' Soul?

            "Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven" (2 Kings 2:11).

              I am not sure what the relevance of these two individuals is to the concept of immortals souls. and/or heaven going at death or in any way an answer to the Bible teaching from Genesis 2:7, 3:19 and Daniel 12:2.concerning the soul and death. I am not sure how you understand Enoch and Elijah as it seems that Enoch was translated so that he would not see or face an imminent death, and Elijah was separated from Elisha by a whirlwind and a chariot and transported from him. Both of these are not speaking of the death of their bodies and the separation of their immortal souls and the transport of these immortal souls to heaven. Both events depict Enoch and Elijah as alive in their bodies at the time of their major event.

              But despite what you may conclude, Enoch and Elijah were the exception, and not the rule. Peter teaches that David, on the Day of Pentecost at least, had not ascended to heaven, showing a significant difference with the circumstances of Enoch and Elijah.
              Acts 2:29,34–36 (KJV): 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
              So matter what you have concluded about Enoch and Elijah, Peter is teaching that David was both dead and buried, and contrary to what this thread is suggesting, David had not ascended into heaven. Even if as some suggest the souls were waiting for Jesus to go to heaven, this had not happened with David fifty days after the crucifixion and ten days after Jesus himself had ascended to heaven. The Apostles did not teach immortal souls.

              In the middle of the verses quoted above is the following:
              Acts 2:29–36 (KJV): 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
              This gives another occurrence of the word “soul” and here it is not talking about an immortal soul. This is the same concept as revealed in Genesis 2:7 where it is talking of his body and life. Jesus was not left in the grave, he was not allowed to corrupt to dust as per Genesis 3:19, but his body, his soul was raised from the dead after three days.

                The Spirit and Soul is the breath of life. When we how can the breath of life remain in us when the body is dead.

                spirit,
                πνεῦμα (pneuma)
                Noun - Nominative Neuter Singular
                Strong's Greek 4151: Wind, breath, spirit.

                soul,
                ψυχὴ (psychē)
                Noun - Nominative Feminine Singular
                Strong's Greek 5590: From psucho; breath, i.e. spirit, abstractly or concretely.

                "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thess. 5:23).

                Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

                "The "spirit" (pneuma) is the part by which we apprehend realities intuitively--i.e., without reasoning upon them; with it we touch, see, serve, worship God (John 4:23-24; Romans 1:9; 1Corinthians 6:17; Revelation 1:10, et al.); it is the very inmost consciousness of the man (see, e.g., 1Corinthians 2:11); it is the part of him which survives death (Hebrews 12:23; 1Peter 3:19; comp. Luke 23:46; Acts 7:59)."

                  The breath of life is the air which we breathe, and if we are submersed a long time in water, then we drown and we no longer have the breath of life in our lungs. Both man and beast were drowned in the time of Noah, and all of these had the breath of life:
                  Genesis 7:21–23 (KJV): 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died[/u]. 23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
                  Do you believe that your immortal soul is in your nostrils?

                      I agree, but you distinctly said in your previous Post: “The Spirit and Soul is the breath of life”. The second part of your Post stated “When we how can the breath of life remain in us when the body is dead.” And you seemed to have dropped a word or two, or made a mistake here. So perhaps you need to clarify the above first. Is your immortal soul in your nostrils?

                      Kind regards

                        “[I]The Spirit and Soul is the breath of life/I]”. Ok ! I admit to that error. I believe the immortal soul given by God becomes that part of us that lives by faith and is part of our character that is not of the flesh and blood. It is that which becomes part of that spiritual body that Paul tells us we will have instead of the body of creation.

                              The following is in my Bible:
                              Genesis 3:19 (KJV): In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
                              Daniel 12:2 (KJV): 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
                              2 Timothy 4:1,6–8 (KJV): 1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
