Ticket to Heaven!
Why are so many nice people not going to Heaven?
If your one of those special people, have you ever cried out to God and asked God what He says on how to get into Heaven?
Most have not stopped to consider asking God!. Why? because you and others believe in one of the lies of the devil, which keep you from asking God how to get into Heaven His way.
I was in the same situation that your in today 25+ years ago. Now I have my Ticket to Heaven and when I pass from this place I will be going to Heaven 100% certain!
I want to tell you what God says how to get your Ticket to Heaven and for you to be 100% sure you are going to Heaven when you leave this earth.
Before you read please take a few seconds and ask God to remove the veil that blocks your vision, and ask God to help you see the Truth that comes from His words.
What is this Ticket to Heaven?
I meet a lot of people who are chosen by God the Father and are very nice individuals and yet do not have their Ticket to Heaven! Could you be one of those nice people?
The following is meant to be a challenge to you and to look at what God says about avoiding Hell and getting your Ticket to Heaven.
Please note: Ticket to Heaven is a visual aid instead of using words like - Born Again - Eternal Life - Salvation - Etc.
We all understand the purpose of a ticket, to allow us passage into a place or location. One must present a ticket to enter a place, plane, train, bus concerts, theatre etc. You get the picture.
I use Ticket to Heaven as a visual aid and it makes it easy to understand the importance of having or obtaining a Ticket.
If we were to meet in a store and I read from your face that God the Father has chosen you and after a short conversation I would ask you if I can tell you what I read from your face. You would tell me yes. I would say to you that
"What I read from your face that God the Father has chosen you. You have been chosen by the living God and that is very special to be chosen by the true and living God".
I would ask you if you know what that means. You would respond with a no. I would say "If chosen it means that God has your Ticket to Heaven signed with your name on it and your Ticket to Heaven is waiting for you to claim it".
I would ask you if you have claimed your Ticket to Heaven yet. (God does not tell me if one has claimed it or not) You would say no like most unless of course you have already claimed your Ticket to Heaven.
I would ask you " Do you believe your going to Heaven?" You would answer YES. I would ask you "What percentage do you think your going to Heaven?" I would listen and accept your answer as good because everyone has a percentage. Some low 50% some high 100%.
Depends on how much time I think you will allow me then I have a few options as to the next comment or questions to help you to think about the most important matter where will you spend ETERNITY?.
Option # 1 I can say.
"You believe your going to heaven by being a good person don't you?"
You would acknowledge it or you would explain it further.
Another option is to ask you "What are you basing your belief that your going to heaven"
Your answer will be ___________________
Another option I would say if the building collapsed and we died and we went up to Heaven and St. Peter was at the pearly gate and St. Peter said to you " Why should I let you into Heaven?" What would you say to St. Peter?
You would probably say " ..........................................................."
I would acknowledge your answer and say to you it's a very good answer.
I would ask you " Have you ever asked God what He says on how to go to heaven?" You would probably say NO. I would ask you why? You would tell me I don't know. I would ask you " Do you want me to tell you why? You would probably say yes.
I would ask you "Have you ever seen yourself going to hell?" You would probably say no.
You have never asked God what is His way to get into heaven because the devil is good at what he does. That is why you have never asked God for your Ticket to Heaven, and that is why you do not have your Ticket to Heaven yet.
You may look surprised at my answer but I would continue to explain the three major lies the devil uses on almost every religious and non religious person.
The devil is really good at what he does - lying and deceiving people into believing that his lies are the truth.
Please reflect on how you answered the question if St. Peter were to ask you: why should he let you into Heaven?
If your like the majority of the people, you hope you have your Ticket to Heaven and hope to get into Heaven.
This reading if you decide to believe God over the lies of the devil will make you 100% sure of going to Heaven. Only if you believe God over the lies of the devil. The devil's lies are deep into your brain and that is why I asked you to pray for help from God that you would see and understand God's truth.
This message is mostly for people who have attended the following churches or a church with similar teachings, yet are not 100% sure and do not have their Ticket to Heaven - Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Salvation Army, Wesleyan and/or denominations that teach the truth about God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, Heaven, Hell and the devil.
If your someone who has attended a denomination that teaches the truth of God and have heard and been exposed to the story of Jesus Christ who is God and the Son of God, was born of a virgin, shed His blood to forgive our sins and died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day then you are very close to getting your Ticket to Heaven. I am not going to cover what you already know but concentrate on the item that keeps you from asking for your gift of Eternal Life ( Ticket to Heaven ).
You only need to see the lie that keeps you from claiming your Ticket to Heaven. This lie comes from the father of liars, the great deceiver, the devil.
Three lies that keep you from claiming your Ticket to Heaven!
The devil has three major lies to keep people who attends or has attended a Church that preaches the truth about Christianity so they won't ask for their Ticket to Heaven.
Do you know the three lies he uses?
Lie # 1: - Hell does not exist - No punishment for our sins -
Lie # 2: - Your a good person, you are going to Heaven -
Lie # 3: - Surely God would not send anyone to Hell -
Lets look at the three lies of the devil and see the big hole in the lies.
Lie # 1: Hell does not exist.
If hell did not exist, then why would God the Father send His Son Jesus Christ who was also God die a cruel death if hell did not exist? If one does not believe in Hell then why ask God How can I get into Heaven?. If you believe the lie then the devil has you going into hell because you will never ask God what is His way in getting into Heaven.
Truth: Hell does exist - Jesus talked about Hell.
God had Hell written in His book the Bible. God the Son, Jesus Christ came on the earth to die on the cross shed His blood to save us from a terrible consequence of hell. Why would Jesus go to the cross if hell did not exist? It makes no sense at all. See how that lie makes no sense to even consider!
Lie # 2: Your going to Heaven, your a good person, think of all the
good you do for mankind. Your a good person, surely you are going to get into Heaven. If I can work my way to heaven then God the son Jesus Christ did not have to die on the cross! Think of it, if I can work my way to heaven God Jesus did not have to die on the cross! Right, makes sense. Do you see the hole in that lie now? Jesus, the night before going to the cross prayed to His Father and asked " Is there any other way that you and I could avoid going to hell" God answered Jesus that if - Good deeds could forgive sins then God the Father would not have to send God the Son to the cross. - If Following commandments could get a person into Heaven then again God the Father would not have to send His son Jesus to the cross. God's law is - Blood from a perfect lamb is the only thing that can wash sins away. If Jesus did not go to the cross then no one would have the opportunity to avoid hell and everyone would be go there. That was the plan from the beginning that God the Son would shed His BLOOD and allow us the opportunity of avoiding hell.
Truth: Not one person who has committed even the smallest sin
can enter Heaven unless they have their Ticket to Heaven. Even liars will have their place in the lake of fire. Again if you believe lie # 2 then you will never cry out to God and ask God what is your way to get into Heaven?. Why did God the father send His Son on the Cross? God the father requires the shedding of blood in order to forgive sins. The blood has to be from a perfect lamb, that perfect lamb was God the Son Jesus Christ. Jesus who was also God offered Himself as the perfect lamb because He saw our situation - none of us could be good enough to pay for our Ticket to Heaven. None of us because of one sin could enter heaven. We can enter Heaven under the law or under the grace of God. Under the law one must be perfect, without any sin. All of us have sinned. Are you beginning to see and understand why God the Son had to be born and take the form of a man and go to the cross?
Jesus had to shed His blood in order for anyone to be able to be
forgiven by God the Father or God the Son. Blood is the only thing that can wash away sins and it has to be from a perfect lamb, Jesus is that perfect lamb. There is only one way to be forgiven, one way only. God's way.
Lie # 2 is the lie that will get the majority of people going to hell no matter
your religion. Most people believe they are going to Heaven and have no clue they are heading for hell because they believe the lie that they are good enough to get in. What was your answer to St Peter at the gate? Was it not some form of good deeds outweigh the bad deeds? People do not know that one small sin sends them to hell. Yes I know, that would mean everyone is going to hell. Yes everyone unless you ask God for your Ticket to Heaven. I'm going to explain how you can get your Ticket to Heaven.
The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is Eternal Life.
Lie # 3: Surely God would not send anyone to hell.
If God did not judge and send anyone to Hell then God the Father made a big boo-boo (error), God the Father sent His son Jesus Christ on the cross for nothing. Think again, if God does not condemn or judge and does not send anyone to hell, then His son Jesus Christ died a cruel death for nothing.
Truth: Anyone who does not have their Ticket to Heaven cannot get
in Heaven. You need a Ticket to get on a plane, bus, special concert, theatre etc. You get the picture? Well you need your Ticket to Heaven. If God had no intention of sending anyone to hell then why would God the father allow His beloved Son (who was also God) to die such a cruel death. Jesus prayed to the Father the night before His crucifixion and asked "is there any other way"? What Jesus was asking, is there any other way that you and I could be forgiven. Only blood can wash away our sins. God the Father can only forgive sins if blood is shed and the blood has to be from a perfect lamb. That perfect lamb was Jesus. No cross - no forgiveness of sins and no heaven. Jesus, the living God and creator of all the universe volunteered to go to the cruel cross and shed his blood for us.
If you believe any of the above lies then you are not going to ask God how to get to Heaven are you? Have you ever cried out to God and asked how can I get into Heaven? God has a way for you to get into Heaven? Only one way. Do you know the one way?
If you have never asked God how to get into Heaven then how do you expect to get in!
Remember how the devil deceived Eve? "Surely God did not mean not to eat of the fruit from that particular tree, you will know right from wrong" Eve was lied to and was deceived.
The devil is good at what he does - The devil lies, he deceives, he wants you to go to Hell with him. There is a spiritual battle for your soul.
Jesus said " I am the TRUTH, the WAY and the LIFE, no man comes to the father except through Me" John 14:6
Are you ready for your first challenge? Here goes.
Here is a truth that most people do not know!
" Murderers, adulterers, whoremongers, idolaters, sorcerers, ......... and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire" Revelation 21:8
God puts big sins and very small sins in the same category. God says that all murderers and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire.
For most of us we did not know that one lie sends us to hell. Why? God is such a Holy God that even a small liar is not allowed into Heaven. If you have committed even just one small lie then you cannot enter into Heaven unless you have your Ticket to Heaven.
Did you know that only one small sin separates us from going into Heaven? For a Catholic like myself it was like a slap in the face. It did not seem right that a small sin like a small lie would separate me from heaven. I had always believed it took a big sin not a small sin to send me to hell.
I was an alter boy and had earned all the badges of an alter boy. Some special days we had one mass in the morning, one mass in the afternoon and one mass in the evening. Sometimes I would serve two masses in one day as an alter boy and attend the third mass service. That meant I attended three masses in one day.
I did not smoke or drink, I was active in many sports when growing up, stayed out of trouble, so I always presumed I was a good candidate to enter Heaven. Little did I know, if I had died before getting my Ticket to Heaven I would have gone to hell believing I was going to Heaven.
Murderers............. and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire. Rev.. 21:8
Let me ask you, have you ever told a small fib? Most people have at least told a small lie, and if we were truthful more than one. The truth, it only takes one small sin to separate me from heaven. That is the truth. The bible, God's word said it.
Let me ask you this now that you have admitted to committing to at least one small sin -
"Where would you go if you died today?
If you said Heaven I would repeat - Revelation 21:8 Murderers ........ and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire.
According to God's word, where would you go IF YOU DIED NOW?
If you answered Heaven I would say the devil says "surely God did not mean if you commit just one small sin you cannot enter HEAVEN. Surely that's not what God meant.
I would say to you - "Let me tell you what God says. Murderers ........ and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire."
According to God's word, where would you go? If you answered Heaven I would repeat what God says again " and all liars will have their place in the lake of fire. "
If God has opened your eyes to His TRUTH and you said Hell, I would now be able to tell you the Good News because you are now believing God's truth over the lie of the devil.
Good news - "The wages of sin is death but the GIFT of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". Romans 6:23.
Do you have to pay for a gift? Do you have to earn a gift? Do you have to win a gift? Are you obligated to a gift? Of course not, a real gift is given with no paying , earning,winning or obligated. That is a true gift. God wants to give you the Gift of Eternal Life. Remember if you have to pay for a gift it is not a gift. If you have to earn it, it is not a gift. If there is obligation to it, it is not a gift. If you have to earn it, it is not a gift.
A gift has no obligations attached to it.
Let us logically look at your situation - You have never asked God how to get to Heaven because you have never seen yourself going to hell before.
You believe in Jesus and know that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world but you never really understood the deep meaning to that truth.
Greatest gift you can ever get!
If you can admit to having committed one sin then according to the word of God, and God is truthful, you are separated from a Holy God and you cannot enter Heaven. If you are not getting into heaven then the only other place is hell and you are heading for hell.
Are you ready to cry out to God and ask Him how you can avoid going to hell. Well here is the good news!
"The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord ".
Getting into heaven is a gift from God. Your Ticket to Heaven is a gift from God. You cannot pay for it or earn it.
If God has removed the veil from your eyes and has allowed you to see the truth, that one sin, (big, medium or small) only one sin stops you from entering Heaven, when you understand this truth, then you are ready to cry out to God and ask Him what is His way to avoid going to hell.
God the father will say, "Stop believing the lie of the devil, stop putting your faith on yourself and your good deeds in order to get into Heaven. You cannot get into Heaven by being good, if that was the way into heaven I would not have had to send my Son to die for you. To get your Ticket to Heaven put your faith on my Son Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross for you. My Son shed His blood to pay for your sins.
God says getting into Heaven is not by your good deeds but by putting your Faith on HIS Son Jesus Christ only.
God the Father requires blood to forgive sins and the blood has to be from a perfect lamb. Jesus was that perfect lamb. Jesus went to the cross to shed His blood for you and I because of His great LOVE for you and I. Jesus died and rose to life on the third day after His death. Jesus ascended to God His Father after spending 40 days appearing to various individuals.
God requires blood from a perfect lamb to pay for our sins. If you put your faith on Jesus Christ and what He did for you, rather than on yourself, good deeds or your church then God will give you eternal life.
When you put your faith on what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross
( shed His blood to pay for your sins, died and rose on the third day) receive Him in your life and give yourself to Him and ask God to forgive all of your sins and ask for His gift of Eternal Life, then God promises to GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE ( Ticket to Heaven).
Your Ticket to Heaven is waiting for you at the cross, but you must go to the cross and put your faith on Jesus Christ only to get your Ticket to Heaven. There is no other way according to God.
Realize the following:
1. Believe in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit
2. Believe there is a Heaven.
2. Believe you have sinned against God.
3. Believe there is a penalty for sin - Hell.
4. Believe that there is a Hell.
5. Believe Man needs someone to pay for his sins because he can't
6. Believe that Jesus is the perfect lamb that can pay for our sins
7. Believe that Jesus is the perfect lamb and is also God
8. Believe God Jesus became man, born of a virgin and created by the
9. Believe that Jesus was crucified on the cross because of
HIS love for us and HE willingly shed his blood in order to pay for our sins
10.Jesus said " I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE no man
comes to the father except through ME."
11. Believe and accept that Jesus has paid for
your sins on the cross and put your faith on HIS completed work on the cross and HIS words when HE says I will give you Eternal Life (Ticket to Heaven).
Story # 1
After explaining what God says how one can get their
Ticket to Heaven to an 88 years old lady, I asked her
if she wanted to pray for her Ticket to Heaven?
She said yes. This was her prayer:
God I'm a sinner, I just heard that one sin sends
me to hell. I did not know this, I don't want to go
to hell. I want to stop putting my faith on myself,
my good deeds or my religion to get into heaven -
I now put my faith on Jesus and the power of His
shed blood, I want to claim my Gift of Eternal Life ( Ticket to Heaven)
After her declaration she said
"Is it that easy?"
I told her it is for us because it is a gift from God,
but it cost Jesus dearly. Jesus was willing
to take the cross because of His enormous love
for you and me.
Story # 2
A week later I explained the good news to an 84 years
old lady and after I asked her if she wanted to pray for
her Ticket to Heaven? She said yes.
This was her prayer:
God I'm a sinner, I have learned that one sin sends me to hell. I didn't know this, I do not want to go to hell. I am putting my faith on your son Jesus Christ and claim my gift of Ticket to Heaven (eternal life).
After her declaration she asked me
"What color is my Ticket ?"
She startled me because I had never been asked that
question before and for a moment I did not know what
to answer. After a few seconds I told her red.
She asked why red? I told her that after we put our faith
on Jesus Christ - God the father puts His finger in the
blood of His Son ( graphically ) and marks you on your
forehead. Jesus' blood is your Ticket to Heaven.
When God looks at you now, He sees the blood of His son
on your forehead and says you are perfect, I have a
mansion waiting for you when you leave this world
Get your Ticket to Heaven:
My question to you: Did you understand the simplicity of getting your Ticket to Heaven? Do you understand it's a gift?
My other question is: Do you want to pray for your Ticket to Heaven?
God calls people to the cross and invites people to accept His gift through FAITH on His Son Jesus Christ and what Jesus did for you - Died and shed his blood so you may have a chance to accept God's Gift.
God does not force anyone to the Cross. It is a choice that you alone can make when the Holy Spirit knocks at your door. The choice is simple - Yes to God's gift God's way or No to God's gift. If God is knocking at your door and calling you and showing you the truth,do not postpone the call.
If you want to CLAIM God's Best Gift God's only way by putting your FAITH on Jesus Christ as your Savior here is a sample declaration or prayer. Please note it is not the prayer or repeating the message that saves you from the punishment of your sins and obtaining Eternal Life (Ticket to Heaven), it is your Faith on Jesus who paid for your sins and Jesus becomes your Savior. Here is a sample prayer or talk to God for putting your Faith on Jesus and receiving God's Best Gift:
Dear God, I have come to realize that one sin sends me to hell. I now realize that my good deeds cannot erase or pay for my sins. I realize that I need to put my Faith and Trust on Jesus Christ the only one who has the power to erase all my sins and give me Eternal Life (Pass to Heaven).
I put my trust, my FAITH on Jesus, I want to claim your promise of Eternal Life (Ticket to Heaven) by putting my Faith solely on your Son Jesus for obtaining my Ticket to Heaven.
Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ, who paid for my Ticket to Heaven (Eternal Life ).
God help me with my journey with Jesus. Amen
If the Holy Spirit convicted you of God's truth and you put your Faith on Jesus (God the Son), then God made a promise. When you put your faith on His beloved Son Jesus Christ then God the Father gives you the gift of Eternal Life. (Ticket to Heaven).
The moment you put your Faith on Jesus Christ, God the Father sends the Holy Spirit in your body. We pray thy Kingdom come, well when a person puts their Faith on Jesus Christ, Thy Kingdom come is happening. Heaven is rejoicing every time someone puts their Faith on Jesus Christ for getting to Heaven.
Faith on the perfect lamb of God, Jesus Christ, allows you to have all your past, present and future sins all forgiven. You went from belonging to the kingdom of darkness into belonging in the Kingdom of God. You are now a true child of God who has been redeemed through His Son, Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to begin a habit in a personal Bible Study to get grounded in God's teaching. This is God's will that you get to know His teaching and not some false teachings. The above links is a good start on all sorts of topics you may be interested in.
