How to get to Heaven and the Heavenly City

Yesterday's DIT was a sermon about Heaven and the Heavenly City.

Also yesterday a well known and famous overnight radio program interviewed a Physician who had written a book about NDEs.

NDEs?  What are they? you ask.

Well NDEs are "Near Death Experiences" in which folks have died (according to physical symptoms during operations, car accidents, etc) but subsequently returned to life.

Many times these people afterwards relate an experience they had while 'dead'.

The radio program to which we mentioned detailed many such NDEs but interestingly no one mentioned in his book reported a death experience in hell -- only wonderful Heaven experiences were related.

These experiences were then analyzed by the host and the person / author  -- and  affirmed  (or so they said) that EVERYONE goes to haven at death and there is NO judgment.

Also, they said, persons of all beliefs and faiths were in heaven.

They also touched briefly on reincarnation and other esoteric topics.

And there was more -- sigh -- but


These thoughts of universal salvation with no judgement or punishment plus the possibility of  reincarnation and etc. ALL definitely contradicts the Bible.

So -- What does the Bible say about WHO can go to heaven and HOW?

It says a lot -- but here are a few passages that you should ponder:

Who can be saved / admitted into heaven?
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father (ie. can enter heaven), but by me (Jesus)."
John 14:6

And How is this possible?   Jesus Himself explained:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. (In Heaven)

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;  …
Hebrews 9: 28

And also -- Re Reincarnation -- it does NOT happen!  Why?  Because
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27
