Jesus Christ said that not all Christians will go to Heaven (Matthew 7:21-29). Jesus said that only Christians who have the Fruit of God's Holy Spirit, are Born Again (Begotten, Baptized) with the Holy Spirit, and obey the Will of Father God (Obeying Him) will inherit Heaven (Matthew 7:13-20; John 3:1-8; John 15:8-14; John 14:26; John 15:14-21).
By Confessing Your Sins To Jesus Christ, asking Jesus Christ to help cleanse you from your sins and asking God to fill you with God's Holy Presence which is Spirit you will have the Fruit Jesus is seeking to allow you into Heaven (1 John 1:7-10; Matthew 4:17; Matthew 14:22-33; John 20:22; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6; Matthew 7:13-20; John 15:8-21; Matthew 21:19; John 3:1-8).
If you have not already done so say this prayer to ask God to Baptize (Beget) you in the Holy Spirit: "Father God I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe that He is your Son (Matthew 10:32; Luke 12:8; Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16). Please Forgive Me Of My Sins. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I can be one with Jesus (John 17:21-24). I ask in Jesus' Name (John 14:13, 26; Acts 1:1-6; Acts 2:1-21; 2 Peter 1:20-21). Amen"
Some people feel God filling them with Holy Spirit while others do not feel anything. Do not worry God is Faithful (Hebrews 13:5-6; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 1 Corinthians 10:13). If you ask God to forgive you and come to you in Holy Spirit the Bible (God's Word) says that you are now Saved, on your way to Heaven and are a Son/Daughter of God (Romans 10:9-10; John 3:1-16; Romans 8:8-20). You must now bear the Fruit of the Spirit that Jesus is seeking to allow you into Heaven (Matthew 7:10-29; John 15:8-21; Matthew 21:19; Galatians 5:22-24).
Pray Over and Recite The Below Bible Scriptures Below To Cultivate and "Walk In" the Spirit of God:
I) FRUIT OF GOD'S SPIRIT
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is
1 love-loving and forgiving others. being happy and caring around others. fully trusting in God's love for me and not unduly worrying about things in life.
2 joy being happy but respectful and considerate in life
3 peace asking for the peace of God, learning to let go and let God, always seeking the God of Peace and our Prince of Peace
4 longsuffering realizing that things may not always go our way. always praising and glorifying God FIRST despite whatever we are going through
5 gentleness-not appearing aggressive or assertive to anyone. trusting in the Spirit of God to accomplish things God's way
6 goodness- being morally clean and upright, lawful
7 faith-trusting in the Invisible God through His Holy Word and not in what you see or experience in the physical realm (John 4:24; Hebrews 11:1-6)
8 Gal 5:23 Meekness-serving others. putting others first
II) THINK ON THESE THINGS (PHILIPPIANS 4:8)
DEAR LORD PLEASE HELP ME TO REMOVE ALL UNGODLY, SINFUL, WORLDLY (EARTHLY) AND "SELFISH THINKING" AND REPLACE IT WITH THE GODLY THOUGHTS OF PHILIPPIANS 4:6-8
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, HOLINESS, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
III) PEACE OF GOD
THE "PEACE OF GOD" IS THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY GHOST IN YOUR LIFE AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT OR TIME OF NEED. THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY GHOST (PEACE OF GOD) WILL
A) TAKE YOUR MIND OFF YOUR CONCERNS ("LET GO") AND "LET GOD". YOU WILL RELAX IN PEACE AS YOUR "INNER PERSON" REALIZES THAT ALL IS IN GOD'S HANDS AND TOTALLY UP TO HIM.
B)THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL REFRESH YOUR OUTTER AND INNER PERSON THAT GOD IS JUST AND IS IN CONTROL.
C) IF YOU ARE WISE YOU WILL TOTALLY TAKE YOUR ATTENTION OFF YOUR CONCERNS AND BEGIN TO SEEK GOD THROUGH PRAYER, PRAISE, THANKS, WORSHIP, BIBLE STUDY AND THE FRUIT OF GOD'S SPIRIT.
IV) MIND OF JESUS CHRIST
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation (humble and meek), and took upon him the form of a servant (He served), and was made in the likeness of men: Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;
Philippians 2:11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
V) CAST DOWN ALL STRONG HOLDS (FLESHY & EVIL) WITH GOD'S WORD AND HOLY SPIRIT
2 Corinthians 10:1 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence [am] base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: 2 Corinthians 10:2 But I beseech [you], that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.
2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
VI) WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having your
A) loins girt about with truth, and having on the
B) breastplate of righteousness; Ephesians 6:15 And your
C) feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Ephesians 6:16 Above all,
D) taking the shield of faith, (THIS SHIELD OF FAITH IS USING GOD'S WORD TO REBUKE EVIL AND TO TRUST IN GOD THE SPIRIT AND NOT WHAT APPEARS TO BE GOING ON IN THE PHYSICAL (FLESHLY) WORLD) wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
E) Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the
