Of course, I want to see my family and friends to spend eternity with me in Heaven with our Father. I hope that we all will greet each other when our time comes and have a party :)
Romans 9:5-10 The Message of Salvation to All
For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them. But the righteousness based on faith says, Do not say in your heart, "Who will ascend into heaven?" (that is to bring Christ down) or "Who will descent into the abyss?" (That is to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?
Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
There's a lot more verses from the Bible that supports this. I can show it to you in person if you are interested. I love learning about Jesus and writing about Him but recently, I have realized there might be a reader who is curious about how to become a Christian or how to go to Heaven. I've actually had a conversation with someone who said that she will try her best to be a good person and hopes to get to Heaven but doesn't want to get her hopes up because she doesn't know if it's real. You can't experience this with all of your five senses- hearing, smelling, touching, seeing, feeling but don't forget your sixth sense - your gut where the Holy Spirit resides in you. Have you ever thought of this? That in the old days - ancient days, that we assumed that there's nothing beyond our sky and that the sky's the limit. Nobody ever THOUGHT that there would be planets behind the Earth's outer atmosphere (don't know the scientific terms but you get the idea) until one day someone used a telescope and discovered it! Then we found it and now we have evidence that Earth is not the only planet here -- there's more!! We will discover Heaven when it's our time but the problem is that we have to be ready for it. That's why God sent his son Jesus to show us the way and died for us so we can live through Him to go to Heaven. God loves us so much and wants us to be with Him again. I don't want people to have to die to realize that Heaven and Hell is real before it's too late. It's not. You can be saved anytime and anywhere. It is up to you where you want to do it and if you want to do it with someone you trust. But most of all, you have to be ready to genuinely believe in Jesus Christ and commit to Him. Once you do, the Bible and everything else will make sense!! That you know that Jesus will always be with you and will never leave you.
First, confess your sins to Jesus Christ, forgive others and ask for forgiveness, then accept/invite/ask/welcome/ love Him to your heart and KNOW that He will never leave you.
The Blood of Christ - His gift to us will bring us to Heaven and once you have accepted him as your savior --KNOW that it is guaranteed that once your body dies, your spirit/soul will be with Him ....and that is in Heaven :)
