The Quran gives you many rules to follow, but it does not give you any assurance that you will spend eternity in Heaven. We read that those “Whose scales are heavy” (with good works) “are the successful.” We also read “That those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls, in hell abiding” (Qs 23:102-103). There can never be any assurance when your scales are heavy enough. And there is no way to know when your scales are too light. There is only doubt and fear that your works did not outweigh your sin. Doubt and fear can lead to acts of desperation. Many Muslims believe that if they kill a non-Muslim, they are assured a place in heaven. So they murder others and martyr themselves for the assurance of eternal salvation.
Isa Al-Masih Was Sent From God to Give Believers Assurance of Eternity in Heaven
Isa Al-Masih did not come to weigh sin. He came to forgive sin. He paid the penalty for all human sin when He died on the cross. Those who trust in him are assured of heaven. This is possible because Isa Al-Masih gave his life as a sinless sacrifice and rose again from death. With boldness he announced, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6)! Have you come to him? He still invites you, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28, 29).
You Must Repent from Your Sins and Believe on Isa Al-Masih
Not all who claim to be Christians have accepted Isa Al-Masih as their Savior. Some merely follow the Christian religion. God does not want religion. God wants a personal relationship with you through Isa Al-Masih. Some people claim to be Christian, but they have never repented from their sin and surrendered their lives to Isa Al-Masih. Only those who have placed their faith in Isa Al-Masih are ready for the Day of Judgment. “Salvation is found in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Are you ready for that Day?
