What Does God Say it Takes to Get to Heaven?

     Most people think that going to Heaven has something to do with Being a GOOD PERSON, Doing GOOD WORKS or Being RELIGIOUS, but the Bible makes it clear that going to Heaven has NOTHING to do with ANY of These Things!  Every day, 150,000 people Die and step into Eternity (54 Million Every Year).  Most of these people die Hoping they’ll make it to Heaven but according to the Bible, Most People Never Will!  Is that because Most People are BAD People?  NO, It's because Most People never "Take the Time" (like you're doing Right Now) to "Find Out" what GOD SAYS it takes to GET to Heaven!  If you want to go to Heaven, you have to do it GOD'S WAY, Not YOUR WAY!

     What is, "GOD'S WAY" ?  God has a Simple Message called, “THE GOSPEL”. The Gospel is all about His Son Jesus, Who He is, What He Said, What He Did and How Jesus' Death and Resurrection created a PATH for Every One on Earth to go

to Heaven!  If you want to go to Heaven and Receive God's Free Gift of Eternal Life, there's only ONE WAY you can do it!  You

have to follow God’s Simple "5 Step" Gospel Path! 

Here Are the 5 Steps.  You Need To:


1. KNOW Who Jesus IS – Jn 14:6, Rom 1:3-4

2. UNDERSTAND What Jesus SAID & DID – Jn 3:3, Rom 5:8

3. BELIEVE What Jesus SAID & DID – Jn 5:24, Jn 10:17-18

4. LOVE Jesus as Your LORD – Jn 8:42, Jn 14:21- 23, Rom 8:28

5. RECEIVE Jesus as Your SAVIOR – Jn 1:12, Rom 10:9-10  


     Start by Reading the "Gospel of John" in the Bible, it should only take you a couple of hours.  This short Book of John will give you the "Heart" of the Gospel and the Absolute Truth about Jesus, Who He Is, What He Said, What He Did and Why He Did it.  Ask God to help you understand and to give you the Faith to Believe His "Living Word" as you read.


(Note: We have provided a FlashBook below of the complete Books of John and Romans for your convenience.  Just click on the icon and you can instantly start reading.) 


     So how long does it take to complete these 5 Steps?  That 

depends on the individual. Some people may be able to pass through these 5 Steps is a single day whereas, it may take others several days, weeks or even longer.


     Simply Knowing and Understanding what the Bible says about Jesus and the Gospel Message is not Enough to get you into Heaven - that's only Steps 1 and 2.


     Step 3.  After Reading and Understanding the Gospel Message in the "Gospel of John"; who Jesus is, how He Lived, what He Said and Did, why He died and how He rose again from the dead to be the Savior of the World, you have an important decision to make.  Here in Step 3, you have to decide whether or not you Believe the Gospel Message is True!  If you DO, then you're ready to move on to Step 4. 


     If you choose NOT to believe, there are some important things you need to know.  First of all, understand that the Bible is the "True Word of God".  In Numbers 23:19 the Bible says that God is not a man that He should lie and in Titus 1:2 the Bible says God Cannot lie!  So you have God's Word that the Gospel is True and that you can Trust it.  You'll never get a better endorsement on the authenticity of the Scriptures and the Gospel then God Himself!


     The Second thing you should know is that even though YOU may not believe the Gospel is True, rest assured that Satan and all of his demons DO!  The Devil knows everything about Jesus and God, he knows more about the Bible than any Christian, he Believes the Gospel and he knows that EVERYTHING God says is True! In James 2:19 the Bible says that the Devil and his demons not only Believe, they Tremble!  


     So here's your situation, because Satan knows the Gospel is True and you're still unwilling to believe it, that puts Satan One Step ahead of you!  You're right where Satan wants you to be!  Satan has you trapped between him and hell and that's exactly where he want's you to stay until the moment you die.  Once you die, it will be too late to change your mind, your soul will belong to Satan forever and ever in the everlasting fires of hell.

     Do you think God wants this to happen to you?  NO!  God Loves you and He doesn't want anyone to go to Hell but at the same time, He will never force anyone into Heaven against their will.  You'll never be able to continue on to Step 4 and 5 if you are unwilling to believe that God's Gospel Message is True!

     So, we plead with you to never give up!  Read the "Gospel of John" again or move on to the "Book of Romans" which gives a more in depth view of Jesus' Sacrifice, our Sinful Nature and God's Salvation Plan. If you're still not ready to believe it's true, continue on to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and then on to the rest of the Books in the New Testament if necessary.  Pray, asking God to help you believe as you read.  Remember this, the Bible is God's Word and the Bible says that God Cannot Lie so you can trust God's Word above all else!  Go to a good Bible Believing Church, talk with other Christians, ask questions, get answers and above all, Never Give Up!

     Step 4.  Make sure you have fully completed the first three steps before continuing on to Step 4.  Although Reading the Gospel, Understanding the Gospel and Believing it's True are all critical steps - up til now, you've only established a "Head Knowledge" of the Gospel.  You see, even Satan and his devils can make it through the first 3 steps!  Completing Step 3 only gets you EVEN with the Devil!  So you see, simply believing that the Gospel is True means Nothing unless you move forward and complete the next two steps!  

     Step 4 is where you get Ahead of the Devil.  The Devil can Never take this step, but YOU can.  Step 4 is where you will go beyond a simple "Head Knowledge" of the Gospel and establish a sincere Love relationship with the Lord!  It's important for you to know that God loves you dearly and He proved his Love for you by sending His one and only Son Jesus Christ down to earth to live a perfect and sinless life, to be shamed and tortured, to be nailed to an old wooden cross, to suffer and die a horrible death to pay the price for your sins and the sins of the whole world, then to overcome death and rise again on the 3rd day to prove He was the Savior of the World!  Yes, Jesus Died for Your Sins!

     You need to understand this; God is Perfect, Righteous, Holy and Just but WE on the other hand are just about the opposite of that!  The wrong things we do here on earth, God calls Sin (ex: when we lie, cheat, steal, deceive, disobey, disrespect our parents, take God's name in vain and on and on).  The Bible says we are ALL sinners and sin is what separates us from God.  God loves us but He can't allow anything imperfect into Heaven - otherwise it just wouldn't be Heaven!  So you see, we all have a Very Big Problem!  




When you choose to Sin, you are actually committing crimes against a Holy and Righteous God. In God's eyes we are all a bunch of criminals!  God hates sin and He can Never allow sin into Heaven.  We are all guilty criminals and because God is a Just God He must punish all sinmust pay for their crimes and the only The only  without Jesus sacrifice, you would Never  NO ONE would ever be able to go to Heaven!  We would all be eternally lost and condemned to Hell for all eternity!


on an   of the Gospel, of God and a Love for Jesus as your Lord.  



Romans 10:9-10

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


 can make it through Step 3 but they can never go beyond.  That's why he wants to keep YOU trapped on Step 3 so you can never make it on to Steps 4 and 5 so you can be Saved and go on to spend Eternity in Heaven!





Up to this point you have only Although the first three steps are critical to your Salvation, you still have two more very important steps to complete.  


to your Salvation BUT not enough to Save you.until you If you have reached this Step, then you must have completed the first three. Read and Understood the Gospel, you also believe that God's Gospel Message is True!   At this point you just have a it You not only need to have a Head Knowledge of the Gospel, Knowing it, Understanding it and Believing it's true, you also have to have a Heart Knowledge.  God promises that those who Seek Him Will Find Him - if you Seek Him with your Whole Heart. - Jeremiah 13:19.You have another choice to make.  Will you chose to Love Jesus?  Imagine this scenario, you're were walking along the edge of the Grand Canyon and suddenly, your foot slips and you go over the cliff and down.  But, just as you go over, a young man standing beside you reached out and grabbed the hood of your jacket with one hand and a small tree root on the way down with the other.  As you both dangled there over the 5,000 foot drop, the young man used every bit of his strength to hold on to you and the tree root until the rescuers arrived to pull you up.  But sadly, just as the rescuers were reaching down to grab the young man, the tree root snapped and the young man fell 5,000 feet to his death. was able to cling to your jacket and the tree root using all his strength until the rescuers came and pulled you up at that very moment a young man was able to grab the collar of your the a stranger died saving your life.  You woke up in the hospital and your family explained that Even the devils believe  








God is ready Right Now to give you His Free Gift of Eternal Life but you have to be ready and willing to receive it of your own free will.  You see, God doesn't send anyone to Hell, we send ourselves there buy failing to take these 5 Simple Steps toward Him.  God Loves you and He doesn't want you to go to Hell, but He will never force anyone into Heaven against their will.  receive God's Free Gift of Salvation.  you  He will Never Force it on you, you   You sse, God doesn't send anyone to Hell,  If you end up in Hell, you will never be able to blame God, that will all be on you.  If you end up in Hell it will only be because you failed to take these 5 Simple Steps toward God.  imple    Lifeand waiting for you with open arms as soon as you are readyIt all depends on how quickly you chose to draw close to God.  God is always ready and waiting for you with open arms knows your heart and He knows whether you are sincere or not so youYou see, the bottom line is that you can't Fool God!  






(Some Simple Illustrations: Has anyone ever told you that your local supermarket was having a sale on a particular item so you drove over there to get it? You Believed their "Story".  Has anyone ever told you a particular movie was really really good so you went to the theater to see it.  You Believed their "Story".  Has a Doctor ever diagnosed you with a problem and you went to the Drug Store to fill the Doctor's Prescription?  You Believed their "Story".  You can believe the "Gospel Story", God's Word is True. The Bible says that God is not a man that He should Lie - Numbers 23:19.  If you can believe your friend's and neighbor's stories, you can certainly Believe "God's Story"!)


Can you Trust God's Word?  Absolutely!  The Bible says that God is not a man that He should Lie.  Yes, God's Word is Absolutely True but You can Trust God's Word Do you Believe that Jesus Christ is the true Son of God, that He Loves You, that He Died for you, that He Rose Again from the Grave and is Alive Today, that Salvation comes By Grace Alone through Faith Alone in Christ Alone? If you do, you can move on to Step 4.  If you don't, you need to either Read the "Gospel of John" again or move on to the "Book of Romans" which gives a more in depth view of Jesus' Sacrifice, our Sinful Nature and God's Salvation Plan. 


     If you still don't have enough Faith to Believe, continue on to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and then on to the rest of the Books in the New Testament. The Bible says our Faith comes by "Hearing" and or Reading the Word of God so keep Reading and asking God for wisdom and understanding until you sincerely have enough Faith to "Believe".   


     Step 4.  God's Salvation Plan was Created out of Love and must be received out of Love. Once you Truly Understand Who Jesus Is, and Believe that He Loves you and Died for you, it's only Natural for you to “Fall in Love” with Him!  When the time comes that you can honestly confess to Jesus from your Heart that you Truly Love Him as your Lord, for Who He Is and What He did for you, you’ll be ready to take the Final Step and Receive Jesus as your Savior.

     Step 5.  Once you can honestly say that you Believe the Gospel and that you Truly Love Jesus as your Lord, you will be ready to take the Final Step in God's Gospel Path to Heaven and Eternal Life by Receiving Jesus as Your Savior.

     This is what the Bible says;

Romans 3:23

23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;


Romans 6:23

John 3:16-17

Romans 10:17

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

John 14:21,23

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 1:12

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
