Who Will Go To Heaven? - Rev. Boaz

I have been living for the past 28 years since I vowed to dedicate myself to life for the Lord. It has been 25 years since I started ministry while taking a theological course. I think the most controversial and hot topics in all of that time are heaven and hell. In particular, I remember that many people dealt with heaven much more than the subject of hell. Because hell is what most people hate, whether they believe it or not.

 The most frequently asked question is “Is there really a heaven?” There are a lot of people who say they don't want to talk about something that is dead or verifiable. The funny thing is that nobody really likes to hear people say “go to hell”. Once you look at the legends and stories that remain in human civilization around the world, the concepts of heaven and hell appear in common, so I think it is reasonable to at least admit it.

The next question is, if there is a heaven, “how & who does it go?”. What all religions have in common is that there are no evil people, but the righteous, that is, good people. Doing many good deeds is the common denominator. Of course, the Bible also emphasizes good works. However, the special difference is that ‘anyone can enter as a child of God’.

  But to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12).

 And there is a clue that practical good deeds must live according to God's will. It seems that not a few Christians overlook this part, so they are treated as those who have received 'cheap grace or cheap salvation'. The meaning of believing with your heart, resulting in righteousness, and confessing with your mouth, to be saved means that you have the right to become children by accepting Jesus with your heart and lips. The process of achieving salvation by those who have that authority is the life of living according to God's will.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven. Only those who do the will of my Father who is in heaven will enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 7:21)
