Well probably the best way to answer the question of "whoís gonna be there" is through some of the last recorded words in the Holy Bible.

Because written in Revelation 21:7-8 we find: "He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

So after having read all that, it shouldnít be too difficult to understand that itís only those who "overcometh" that will get the everlasting peace, joy, and happiness of living in Heaven in a sinless body for ever and ever and ever.

But just what does it take to be an overcomer, you might ask?

Well a pretty good definition goes something like this:

Overcomer- someone (a Christian; follower of Jesus Christ) who holds tight to their faith (belief in Jesus) against all opposition of the enemy (Satanís temptations and persecutions) even to the point of death.

Cross

So is that one clear enough for you?

Well thatís what you call one more tough definition... but thatís what it takes to get into Heaven.

And if thatís what it takes to get you in, letís see what it takes to keep you out:

Fearful- someone (anyone) who refuses (out of fear) to boldly follow the example of Christ and the leading of Christ (through the Holy Spirit) even to the point of death. The idea is that this person has a cowardly fear of the opposition (the enemy; Satan) which is greater than their reverential fear of God Almighty.

Unbelieving- someone (anyone) who refuses to believe that God Almighty is the All Powerful, All Knowing, Ever Present Three In One God (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) Whoís Scriptures, as found in the Holy Bible, are The Word of God and All Truth.

Abominable- someone (anyone) who claims to be a follower of Christ but yet refuse to serve Him with their life through their actions. God says they stink!

Murderers- someone (anyone) who selfishly takes the life of (kills) a human being, which can even include themselves (suicide).

Whoremongers- a man (any man) who prostitutes his body to anotherís lust for hire, a male prostitute (a homosexual), or a man who indulges in unlawful sexual intercourse in any capacity (a fornicator).

Sorcerer- someone (anyone) who prepares or uses magical potents (drugs), whether simple or potent, which are generally accompanied by incantations and appeals to occult powers. In other words anyone practicing witchcraft.

Idolaters- someone (anyone) giving divine honor to created things, which can include the worship of stones, trees, rivers, animals, sun, moon, stars, air, fire, deceased ancestors, idealism, abstractions or mental qualities, Jehovah or other gods under image or symbol, or just the symbol itself.

Liars- someone (anyone) who deceivingly says that something is true even though they know it to be untrue.

So thatís what it takes to get you in Hell. But... the question still remains:

Whoís Gonna Be There?
