This is a question which Everybody must deal with. I’ve been blogging about who will be going to heaven for the past year or so and this is the crucial matter. Get it wrong and you’re headed for an agonizing eternity. Get it right and you’ll be in heaven with all those people through time and space whom God predestinated.
No matter what other religions teach, there is only one way to be with the heavenly Father. Christ explained to Thomas in John 14:6 (KJV) about the only way to God. “Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'”
But how can this be so when other religions say they teach the way to paradise in the afterlife? Only Jesus fulfilled all God’s requirements in the law which he gave Israel. Hebrews 4:15 (KJV)states, “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
This is why he could say that he was the only way to the Father. As he told Martha when her brother Lazarus was dead for four days, (John 11:25 KJV) “Jesus said unto her, ‘I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:'”
Christ will judge every person who ever lived. Look at what John 5:26-29 (BBE) says. “For even as the Father has life in himself, so he has given to the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to be judge because he is the Son of man. Do not be surprised at this: for the time is coming when his voice will come to all who are in the place of the dead, And they will come out; those who have done good, into the new life; and those who have done evil, to be judged.
Will you be with the ones resurrected unto life eternal or condemned to eternal agony? Matthew 28:18 (KJV) says, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ‘All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.'” Since Christ told his disciples this, it shows that we all must obey the gospel. That means we must beg him for forgiveness of our sins and yield control of our lives to him.
I’ll be writing much more about this in my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? This is thee question we all must deal with.
