God has rules and He is going to send Jesus to uphold them. All will stand in judgement and in that calling few will be chosen. Jesus will say to many, “Go away, I never knew you.” Matthew 7:21-23
Matthew 7:13 says, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” According to scripture, not everyone is going to Heaven.
1st: We’ll look at who is not going.
1st Corinthians 6:9-10; Do you not know that these will not inherit the Kingdom of God?
Those who are covetous
1st John 2:15-17:
Lovers of the world
Those who have the lust of the flesh
Those with lust of the eyes
Those with a pride of life
Do not love the world or things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
2nd: Those who will inherit the Kingdom of God:
Romans 10:17, Hear the word of God
John 8:24, Believe that Jesus is the Son of God
Matthew 10:32, Confess that belief
Luke 13:3, Repent of your sins
Mark 16:16, Be baptized
Revelation 2:10 Remain faithful.
John 14:15, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
1st John 2:3-6:
Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
The Bible is our map and lays out very plainly the plan God has for our salvation. Are you on the right road?
Have a good day all!!
SMILE God loves YOU!!
