Who Is Going To Heaven?

who is going to heaven

By Tony Ogunlowo

Everybody wants to go to Heaven. After our earthly lives are spent and finished we all want to go to a place of peace and happiness for eternity. It’s what inspires us to live Godly lives.

Some fraudulent pastors will have you believe that if you don’t pay your tithes you won’t go to heaven. Others will get you to believe they are God’s representatives on Earth through their display of ‘miracles’, ‘prophecies’ and ‘deliverance’ services and they can guarantee your ascent to heaven. Some Islam Imams convince their followers that if they kill an ‘infidel’( or infidels) they will go straight to Heaven or Paradise and other religious faiths have their take on what a Man must do to go to Heaven.

Perhaps.

Before I go any further let me state that NO MAN KNOWS WHO IS GOING TO HEAVEN OR NOT – God decides that and not Man. How can a Plaintiff or Defendant in a case decide on what sentence a Judge is going to impose? So all pastors, Imams and everybody else who claims you will go to heaven is lying to you! At the end of the day they are only but mere mortals supposedly conferring God’s message to man. They themselves don’t know if they are going to Heaven or not. Ask your pastor- or whoever you believe in – if his name is in the Book of the Righteous who’ll be going to Heaven and he won’t be able to give you a straight answer, if he does he is a LIAR! How can a servant know what decision his Master is going to make even before he makes it?

It’s strange that Man who is a mere mortal can suddenly decide that despite the fact he’s not a supernatural being can decide where a person’s soul is going to go after death. So a pastor or Imam who has no control over life and death (- including his own) can suddenly know who’s going to Hell or heaven.

Interesting!

So who is really going to Heaven? Honestly I don’t know!

Why?

We are born into this world and we’re taught a religious doctrine – Christianity, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism or God knows what else. All our religious doctrines tell us to do things one way or the other if we want to go to Paradise or Heaven in the afterlife: if you’re a Christian you’ve got to follow the ten Commandments, if you’re a Muslim you’ve got to do it this way and if you are a Buddhist you’ve got to do it that way.

But the funny thing is nobody really knows! It’s not written in stone anywhere! When Judgement day (- for those who believe in it) comes, who knows what God will judge us upon? He is the Master of the Universe and we his creations. Do we really know his mind? Do we really know what he expects of us? (Well he does expect us to behave ourselves whilst we’re on Planet earth!)

Man and Women will come and go: each one professing to know how to get into Heaven. They will talk and talk and try and convince you they know best like a salesman trying to sell ice to Eskimos.

NOBODY: No Pastor, No Imam, No Guru knows who is going to Heaven or not. Only God knows – and he’s the guy who’s going to sit in the Judge’s seat on Judgement Day and not your pastor – and he can’t be bribed, lied to or otherwise.

So how do you get to go to Heaven?

I’m not going to lie and say I know a sure way but I believe in the guy who said ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself’. If you follow his teachings you’ll become a better person and a better human being. If he could make it to Heaven being the poor, simpleton he was I believe we can all make it.

I rest my case.

  1. Here is what my bible said about your question.

    Matthew 25:34-40 New International Version (NIV)
    34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

  2. Those who do the WILL of God will go to Heaven and it starts by loving God with all your heart and mind,also by loving your neighbor as you love yourself… That’s what God the son, Yeshua,aka Jesus demonstrated/practiced here on earth, God came down to earth as Human to show us how to make heaven and HIS spirit is still guiding us up to today, for those who believed…

  3. IF THIS STATEMENT I AM right about to drop here projects me as proud or haughty, I pray for forgiveness. But I strongly believe that anybody who says the kind of things in this article either does not read the bible at all, or has a mere head knowledge of the word of God. Head knowledge is just academic, for the purposes of arguments, not for edification of souls, and turns a man into something harder than Olumo Rock.

    THE BIBLE MAKES it clear that the Spirit of God bears witness with our spirits that we are children of God(Roman 8:16). Mr Tony Ogunlowo, you claim that no one knows the mind of God. I am sure you have never read in the bible that the secrets of God are with those who fear Him, and He reveals His covenant to them(Psalms 25:14). Therefore, I can be here and tell you whether or not my name is in that book of life, just because God’s Spirit tells me so. It is the mind of God that His people should be certain as regards their fate in the afterlife, because this assurance affects the way we worship Him even here on earth: A man who is confident about his place in heaven has a closer and more quality fellowship with God than the other man who is constantly doubting and guessing.

    I COULD go on and on to prove you wrong, Bro Tony, my namesake. Even your claim that what qualifies a man for heaven is when he “loves his neighbour as himself” is also wrong. This is because it removes the focus on Christ, whom the bible encourages us to look unto, as the Author and Finisher of our faith. If loving your neighbour as yourself is what guarantees entrance to heaven, to what purpose, then, is the death of Christ? If keeping the ten commandments is the requirement, then, Jesus must have suffered for nothing. But I thank God that this is not so! We are made right with God by faith in Jesus, and not by obeying the law(Galatians 2:16), because man’s righteousness is like a filthy rag before our holy God(Isaiah 64:6). Therefore, take note!

    IT IS not very palatable when secular philosophers try to delve into spiritual matters. They make a whole mess of it, and deceive those who don’t know.
