The Way to Heaven

posted on January 24, 2017

Most people when asked will say and honestly believe that they are going to heaven, but it is important to be absolutely sure!

There is a way that seems to be right but is not:

  • There is a way that seemeth right unto a man; but the end thereof are the ways of death (Proverbs 16:25).
  • The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto the counsel is wise (Proverbs 12:15).
  • All the Ways of a man are clean in his own eyes, but the Lord weigheth the spirits (Proverbs 16:2).
  • I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 26:9).

There are many false ways:

Universalism is the wrong way: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the Way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat (Matthew 7:13-14).

Calvinism is the wrong way: Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall (2 Peter 1:10).

Denominationalism is the wrong way: There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling: one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all (Ephesians 4:4-6).

There is only one way to Heaven.

Christ is the only way: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

His word tells us how to go to Heaven: He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath One that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day (John 12:48; note also, Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-4).

We must obey: His Lord saith unto him, well done, good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord (Matthew 25:21).
