question needing an answer

How do u truly know that you are going to heaven?
I have accepted Jesus christ... But sometimes I wonder.
If you truly believe in god and live the way he wants you to live and obey him....thats on the right path right?

What about those who truly do have a good heart but had never had the chance to find God? Then they pass away... what hapens??

Just a lil curious. Im still new to all of this so I'm still learning!
thank you

Hi Jessica :) Glad you asked these quesitons.

First, if you have confessed your sins to GOD and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are saved. You must live a holy life, godly life, repent from your sins and obey GOD.

No matter what a person's personality is, if they do not have Jesus in their life and they pass away, they go to eternal punishment (hell). That is because they did not choose GOD and have a relationship with HIM. There is no reason why anyone should not choose to love and obey GOD. Look at what Jesus did for us on the cross to prove His love to us.

By the way, yes you are on the right path and you made the BEST decision ever that changed your destination for enternity! You will be with our GOD in Heaven, praising and worship Jesus Christ!
Hi there Jess... I'm so glad you made a decision fo Follow Jesus, and it's is great you're asking the tough questions.

As much as Chad is correct in that we are called to be Holy, Godly and examples to the world.. something he didn't mention is Grace.
As you have probably been told, the only way that we can be Saved is through Faith in Jesus having been the sacrifice for our sin at Calvery. But the thing that makes it all worth it is that salvation is a FREE gift. We can't earn it, or work for it or do ANYTHING that will make God care more (or less) for us than he already does.

Because of this, and knowing that as people we get ilife wrong.. (A lot), we can be sure of our salvation as long as we know in our heart that we live for Christ. The Bible says that 'Man looks at the outward appearance (what we do), but God looks at the Heart".... The REASON we do things.

Take heart in the knowledge that as long as you love the Lord in your heart, and repent (turn away from) your old way of life... (selfishness)... he will forgive you a billion-trillion times over.

Simply put.. it's a heart thing.

Hope that is helpful.
Take care.
i believe the bible say that no goes to the father uinless thru me (jesus christ) en u have to accept and confess that he is the chosen of God. for u to see heaven you ought to be in christ and let the Lords will be done in u that is u will be called the sons of God. amen

You know you can't just stop their....it's not enough to only believe that
Jesus is Christ...James2:19-20Thou believest there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
Then how can one be saved?.....
*By obeying the Gospel.

What is The Gospel?
*The death, burial and resurrection.

How does one get the death, burial and resurrection applied to their life?
Romans6:1-6 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Notice that baptism in the name of jesus washes away sin.
resurrection= walking in the newness of life.
How do we get reed of our sins?
We can not get reed of our own sin. (But God can.) In the Old testament they sacrificed animls when they sinned. Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

Life of the flesh is in the blood, if you take blood out of a living soul, it dies.
* Atonement means cleansing or covering.
God says he has given the blood upon the altar for an atonement ,or covering. In the OT life was in the blood.
Once Jesus died on the cross we no longer needed to sacrifice any animals, because the ultimit Lamb, Jesus Christ, was sarificed. But how can we get the blood of Jesus applied to our lives?.....We can geat it applied through his name and baptism. John 20:31...that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. In the NT life is in the name of Jesus. Baptism in the name of Jesus birngs the atonement or covring, that our sins may not be seen, but cover in the blood of the lamb.

John preached baptism and the Holy Ghost
Jesus preached baptism and the Holy Ghost
Paul preached baptism and the Holy Ghost
apostils preached baptism,and today we are still preaching the importance of Jesus name baptism and the Holy Ghost.
