You can KNOW you have Eternal Life - I John 5:13

God the Father wants individuals to “know” if they believe in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ - believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sins, burial, and resurrection; they can know they have eternal life. Individuals can know they are going to Heaven when they trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. Individuals can know they have stepped from death unto life: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24 KJV). Individuals can know their husband, their wife, their children, their mom, and their dad are going to Heaven if they believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sins, burial, and resurrection: trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior. The Bible says: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (I John 5:10-13 KJV). There is nothing more important than knowing a person has eternal life which has nothing to do with what “they do” or “don’t do” and everything that Jesus Christ has done for them: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47 KJV). Trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior today, and you can know you are going to Heaven when you die because you hath everlasting life right now!

THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE

Jesus Christ died for your sins (past, present, and future), Jesus Christ was buried for you, and Jesus Christ resurrected for you. Trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and receive the gift of eternal life: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 KJV). Jesus Christ wants all men to be saved, and this is why He died for all sin at Calvary: “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (I Timothy 2:4-6 KJV); and, “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:13-15 KJV). The payment for sin is paid in full by Jesus Christ Himself: “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12 KJV). The plan for the payment for sin was foreordained before man was created: “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God” (I Peter 1:19-21 KJV). Man can try and add or take away from the perfect sacrifice for sin made by Jesus Christ: i.e., confession, sinners prayer, ask Jesus into your heart, following Ten Commandments, faith plus works, water baptism, communion; however, this does not diminish the fact that prior to man being created, the plan for salvation was already outlined (foreordained) because the Gospel is everlasting and does not change: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people” (Revelation 14:6 KJV). The Gospel is: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV). Believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ and immediately receive eternal life or believe not the Gospel and go to Hell for all eternity: “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power” (II Thessalonians 1:8-9 KJV).

ETERNAL LIFE IS PROMISED

Jesus Christ promises eternal life: “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” (Titus 1:2 KJV); “And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” (I John 2:25 KJV). Believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, burial, and resurrection; trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and receive eternal life TODAY! Jesus Christ is the author of eternal salvation: “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him” (Hebrews 5:9 KJV). The author of eternal salvation says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18 KJV). Believe in Jesus Christ alone that He died for your sin, buried for you and resurrected for you and immediately receive eternal life.

It is a choice. God, in His Sovereignty, permits man’s destiny to depend on man’s choice: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18 KJV). Doesn’t it make sense to believe in the One who came back from the dead and trust Him for the payment of your sin? Why not do it now, and you can be sure of going to heaven when you die. He loves you. Right now, why not accept the payment He has made for your sins, and you can “know” you have eternal life. The Bible says: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (I John 5:13 KJV).

ETERNAL LIFE CANNOT BE LOST

God may discipline you, but He will never kick you out of His family. You have eternal life, which is secure. The Bible says: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47 KJV). You can never lose it, neither can you forfeit it. God’s unconditional promise is that He will never take it away from you. The Bible says: “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:28-30 KJV).
