Citizenship of Heaven Fraud

Bill Brinkworth

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Mat. 7:21-23

Many illegal American residents are being found guilty of illegal voting and committing voter fraud.Vote  One woman was recently convicted of the felony and is serving ten years in prison for her illegal voting.  The citizen of Mexico had been convicted because of her voting in the 2008, 2012 and 2016 presidential elections.

The illegal voter managed to steal the identity of a real citizen and use that identification to help vote a government official into office. She is one of many guilty of attempting to have a say in a government she is not even a citizen of.

As dishonest as that is, there are many attempting to do the same thing by making themselves and others believe that they are future citizens of Heaven, yet are not.   They talk like a Christian, go to places a Christian should go, act like a Christian and even carry a Bible proudly. They make their opinion about the things of God known as if they have authority and right to do so. However, with all their charades and appearances of religious activities, they are not Christians at all.

The Bible even declares that there are so many of these impostors, that they are the majority. The way to having the promise to Heaven is not the widely accepted way.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

Heaven is not obtained by doing good works which most false religions promote. No one can earn Heaven. Unless one does what God commands one must do, one will never spend eternity with God.

God’s way of getting to Heaven is first to recognize one is a sinner.  Despite what so many believe about themselves, there is none that are good. All have sinned and because of their iniquities cannot go to Heaven.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans. 3:23
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” Rom. 3:10

Once one realizes what he is in God’s eyes, a sinner, the next realization needs to be to understand that there is nothing anyone can do to get to get rid of all one’s sins.  However, God knows what we are, and gave us a way to escape Hell. 

God sent His only Son, Jesus, whose sacrificial death is the only payment for our sins He will accept. No one’s good works or deeds are sufficient to pay for their sins.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

When one finally understands who he is and trusts that Christ’s payment is enough to pay for all sins, there is one remaining step that must be done to have God’s promise of eternity with Him. That is to ask to be forgiven and saved from Hell.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Rom. 10:9
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Rom. 10:13

After one has believed what God says about his sinful situation and trusted Christ’s sacrifice, he is saved, or as the Bible describes it, “born again.”  He then can know he will one day be a citizen of Heaven and will not be an imposter as so many are. His Christianity will be real and he will not be guilty of the heavenly felony of fraud.
