The Most Important Thing
In Life Is Getting To Heaven

Typically people who believe in God and heaven think most people will achieve heaven and that idea is associated with their belief that God is good and God is love. These things are true because they are revealed but God also reveals that achieving heaven is not easy and that few will make it. Things regarding God, and spiritual things like heaven or His love, His justice, or His severity in relationship to man are only known if God reveals them.
The good news is that God’s revelation indicates He wants you to be successful and indeed you can be successful. It is up to you! The difficulty is loving God and truth sufficiently to find God and then obey Him even if difficult, very difficult.

You may very well see that you have been taught things that are untrue and damaging to achieving heaven. Do not blame your teachers. The truth can be found if you wish to find it and thus represents no excuse for you. Differentiating truth from error is not a close call that needs some sort of “video replay” to determine exactly what happened. The difference between truth and error is gargantuan. Then why are there so many different beliefs? I would suggest there is one very large overwhelming reason. The truth contains a great deal of things that limit people’s lifestyles. People over history have invented new religions remove many of the difficulties. I would also suggest that God designed the truth to have this effect as part of His plan, His purpose. You are being tested and God is looking for a certain type of individual to spend eternity with Him. The persons He does not wish to spend eternity with would reject His teachings and never achieve heaven. Those who accept His doctrines would indeed love Him. They would possess qualities like:

  1. A love of the truth – despite the difficulties
  2. Be humble enough to accept God’s ways instead of placing confidence in themselves or other men
  3. They would have a forgiving spirit
  4. They would have open minds sufficient to change from what they currently believe
  5. They could distinguish value, especially long term value
  6. They would have strength of character to do the right thing
  7. They would have a love of God and man and demonstrate that in their actions

I said the difference between truth and error is gargantuan and this can be determined by any person with some effort. There is no book like the bible which contains God’s explanation of your existence and a purpose that has been progressing in a defined manner since Genesis 3.15. The wisdom, the consistency over thousands of years with over 40 writers is not possible by men especially considering when it was written. This study provides certainty for many but nothing is as powerful as what God has done in Christ for humankind. Most people have heard these things but few have really “checked it out.” It would seem God would like you too see Him in the creation and also even more so in the word of God that has been carefully delivered. The word of God is magnificent in every aspect. I wrote the book, “What Is Life All About?” to help people to see the completeness. That book points to the perfection of God’s plan but also in looking at the religions of men it magnifies the differences and one can easily conclude they are gargantuan.

Gargantuan Differences

The really big differences are:
First, when some man/woman claims to have heard from God and begins a religion, which frequently includes writing a book that somehow came from God it should be suspicious. Mohammed and Joseph Smith are two of many who have created their own religions. There is no reason to believe them – you put your eternal soul in their hands and you have only their word. In these cases they both created a massive amount of material which they claim came from God through an angel. Where did they get the idea of a singular deity, for having a book from that deity and the idea of angels? Well, obviously from the Bible which they both knew. Although there are tons of problems with what they wrote, your focus should be that these were just men who suddenly started religions. Both of these men incidentally pattern and/or copy considerable ideas from the bible. Both of these men found problems with the religions of the day and they were often correct yet the things they observed did not come from God. God abhorred them even more than they did.

Second, there are many significant religions that make no claims of having received revelations from God. It is just what they thought would be good ways to live their life’s and God if He exists in their religion may in someway accept their ideas. Very confusing but they frequently have massive numbers of followers.

There is only one feasible religion and that is the one, which God places His stamp of approval. The bible is the word of God and in it you find tons of evidence but only if you are truth seeker. The creation of all things from nothing, the creation of time are for your understanding of a divine presence. Yet God’s pinnacle creation is the word of God which by design is able to separate those who will spend eternity with God in heaven from those who will not. People will reject God’s word because of their self-willed nature, their pride in their current belief, their lack of concern for others, and their difficulty living how God requires.
God is very clear about this as Jesus indicates:

Matthew 10:34

34 Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

Then He points to the sword of the Spirit as being the word of God.

Ephesians 6:17

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
Then he makes it clear that the sword, the word of God will be the weapon that divides, separates those who will be with God from those who will not.

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

You do not like God’s word and consequently you are separated from God who knows your heart.
You follow something different than the gospel delivered by God’s Holy Spirit and you are separated from God.
You learn the truth, the word of God but do not obey the gospel or you fall away from the truth after obedience and you are separated from God.

It is always about God’s word and your relation to it. The word of God was perfectly delivered and men foolishly question God’s ability to provide what men need in a written format. Yet this is at the core of God’s plan, God’s purpose and the creation of everything else, the universe, all the beauty are no more than stage props. Incredible, inconceivable, magnificent stage props but it is the play enacted on this stage that is God’s purpose. YOU are God’s purpose!

So my advice would be to study the scriptures and you will find God. Paul gave the following advice to the Athenians:

Acts 17.26,27

26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;

Therefore seek God with your whole mind, body and spirit and you will find Him, He is not far from you.
