Bible version used: KJV
Heaven is not a fantasy or fairy tale. The Bible says that heaven is a real place. God lives there. His only Son Jesus lives there. All who have died believing in Jesus have gone there. Heaven is a big place.
Only those who have their names written in the Book of Life will be in heaven. (Revelation 20:15) Jesus told his disciples they should rejoice because their names are written in the Book of Life. Your name is written in this book when you accept Jesus as your Saviour. (John 1:12)
Jesus promised to prepare a home in heaven for all who believe in Him. (John 14:1-3) In heaven there will be no sorrow, pain or death. (Revelation 21:4) You will have a body like Christ (1 John 3:2) that knows no limitations. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
Jesus said if you believe in Him, you have eternal life and will pass from death into life. (John 5:24) Your body still faces death, but if you know Jesus as your Saviour, He promises that you have eternal life. (John 3:16) Life in heaven is Jesus' gift, and cannot be earned.
Jesus made it possible for you to have eternal life when He left heaven on your behalf, suffered and died on the cross, rose from the grave and ascended into heaven. Though He was sinless, He suffered the penalty for your sins. By this sacrifice, Jesus opened the gates of heaven for all who repent of their sins and believe in Him as the only way to heaven.
If you want your name written in the Book of Life, do what Jesus asks: Repent of your sins, invite Jesus into your heart, and trust in Him for eternal life.
