Many seek to make heaven at the end of there lives. yes, this is true! they practice different kinds of religious rites to satisfy their hungry soul. Many go to the extent of visiting high mountains or "sacred temples" of  idols and evil priests. they call upon the name, "God." to them, they claim the god they call upon is the God that created heaven and the earth, even if that god is made with the hands of men. This is common everywhere. There are many religions in this world - Islam, Judaism, paganism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism,  Mormon church, Shinto, Jainism, Hinduism, and many more of them. These all call upon the name "God" or the one with small letter 'g' for god. but come to think of this, does God in heaven that created you and I truly approve and accept all these religions as the ways to reach Him or enter heaven? if God does approve all these religions, it means there are many ways to heaven; and that we are all perfect, holy and without sin; it means heaven is a place of confusion and disorderliness. Their is an adage that says, "two captains cant be on board a ship." this is true! Have you ever seen a nation with two presidents or a family with two fathers in the same home? if it does happen, then their will be commotion and war in the ship, the nation and the home. 

unfortunately for all these religions and people, heaven is not a place of commotion, sin, evil and wickedness or even war. Heaven is a place of peace, joy happiness, holiness and everything good. "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Isaiah 35:8-10. The description is to know the kind of people that will be qualified to enter heaven and those that will never be allowed in the kingdom of God (heaven). Thus, heaven does not entertain or allow such religions or people that practise such.Their is a religion that God approved and accept. THE RELIGION THAT COMES FROM GOD IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE RELIGION THAT WILL LEAD ONE TO GOD AND HEAVEN. The true religion is not to confine one to external forms and ceremonies. Such religion can't bring one into communion with heaven. We must be born of the divine Spirit.This will purify the heart and renew the mind, giving us new capacity for knowing God and loving Him. It will give us a willing obedience to all His requirements. This is true worship. It is the fruit of the working of the Holy Spirit (God's Spirit). By the Spirit every sincere prayer is indited, and such prayer is acceptable to God, there the Spirit working is manifest, God will reveal Himself to that soul. He seeks for such worshipers. He wait to receive them, and to make them His sons and daughters. 

Fortunately for God's true people, God Himself has given His true name for true identification of the true God. This name is given to make a difference between Him and other false gods. Let us see for instance, here on earth, a true son or daughter will know the real name of his or her own biological father. so, it is for the children of God to know their true father (God) by His name. This name was before time, even from the beginning. because of the love of God for us, it had been revealed; that true name is JESUS - that is the name above every other name on earth, heavens and beneath the earth. He that beareth that name is the true God. He is the God that can forgive and take away sins. "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." Mathew 1:21. Who is this Jesus? Jesus is the name of the true God...and He is God Himself. His name is so powerful that all knees in heaven and on earth bow before Him.....even the so called demons are terrified by His name. "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:10-11. He is called the Alpha and Omega (beginning and the ending). That means, He was not created, but He is the creator of all things. "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." Revelation 21:6-7. for God to have revealed His name to us shows that He loves us so much. not only He revealed His name alone, He also came to this world in flesh to reveal His true character to us and also to die for us that we may be saved from our sins. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am (Jesus) come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." One can only qualify to call upon this name after accepting Him (Jesus) as his or her personal Lord and savior. He is a righteous God without sin and can not behold iniquity. He had come into the world and had gone back to prepare a place for as many that believed on Him in heaven. He came that we may believe in Him, that our sins maybe forgiven us, and that we may have eternal life. John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." He said as a matter of emphasis, I AM 'the way' and not 'a way, 'the truth' and not 'a truth', 'the life' and not 'a life'. this is to show that their is no other way to heaven and God except through Jesus Christ. Aside Jesus, any other way to heaven and God is false!

Therefore, no man or woman can enter heaven, except through Jesus Christ (Christ means, messiah, the anointed one, savior). but why? this is because every man and woman are sinners and no sinner can make heaven or see God. "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. But if one does not believe in Jesus, what would be the fate of that person? please read carefully, "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." Romans 3:16-18. You can see that it so dangerous not to believe in Jesus and accept Jesus into your life. all one has to do to make heaven is to accept he or she is a sinner; confess your sins before God in the name of Jesus. tell Jesus to come into your life to be your Lord and personal savior; tell the Lord to forgive you all your sins ( lieing, fornication, masturbation, anger, bitterness, polygamy (marrying more than one wife or husband), adultery, strife, homosexual ism, lesbianism, prostitution, divorce, hatred, unforgiveness, bleaching, stealing, smoking, alcoholism, fraud, cheating, greediness, selfishness, gay marriage, occultism, drunkenness, worldliness, pornography, immorality of all kinds, fighting, blasphemy, as a woman wearing pants/trousers - dressing like a man and as a man dressing like a woman (Deuteronomy 22:5), wearing of attachment (weavon) on your head, because you are not contented with your natural - God - given hair, putting on extra finger nails and extra eyelids, bangles, bracelets, chains, earrings - all are gods before God Almighty and we must do away with them - worldliness; "Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: And let us arise, and go up to Bethe l; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem." Genesis 35:2-4. please read this too, "And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life." Jeremiah 4:30. You need to confess all the ones you are involved in, knowingly or unknowingly, surrender all to Jesus and promise Him you will not go back to your former lifestyle. It is only a dog that that can go back to its vomit. pray in faith to God in the name of Jesus, truly, He will pardon your iniquity and wash you with His blood and you will be made clean and righteous before Him. Their is no sin in heaven and no sinner will enter heaven. As you do that, by giving your life to Jesus, then, you have become born again and a true child of God, as well as a true Christian (Christ-like). "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3. " But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13. 

Please let this be in your mind that this same Jesus is coming back again very sooner to take away those that truly believe in Him and do His will. "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in  white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing upinto heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." Revelation 22:12-13. May the Lord Jesus bless and keep you in His righteousness, even till we meet Him in the air. Amen!
