The answer may surprise you, but there will be NONE!

There are No denominations in heaven, for they are all man-made on earth. Who will be in Heaven then, you may ask?

Many professing christians believe that their denomination is the only true one and that all of that denomination will be saved. Not true! You will not see that in the Holy Bible.

The only true believers are chosen by God before the foundation of the world, and they are from every nation, kindred, tribe and people. They do not come from any denomination, but are found everywhere. They are called by God with an effectual call, and by the miracle of God's grace, have had their hearts open by the Holy Spirit, as Lydia did, the lady who was the seller of purple. (my favourite colour).

God is no respector of persons and he does not choose His bride, as man would choose. He has chosen sinners, for Christ came to save His sinful people, who have been brought to repentance for all their sins, and received forgiveness by the blood of Christ, by the dying of the Lord Jesus, as He bore all their sins and gave them life, by the gift of faith. He suffered, bled and died, as the substitutionary sacrifice on behalf of His chosen people, His betrothed bride.

Someone said recently that she is a Methodist, so always a Methodist, but this cannot be true, as no Methodists will be in heaven, no denomination at all, but only those who have been truly born again by the Holy Spirit across the whole spectrum of earth. Salvation is all of God, nothing of man, and no-one can earn their salvation, for it is a free gift by the grace and mercy of God alone.

So if you believe you are a professing Christian, shelve your pet denomination, because that will not save you, only if you are in Christ and belong to the only Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. No “christening” or “confirmation” will save you either, for these traditions will only place you in that church, not in Christ. God hates men's “traditions” for they are not of Him.

It is the hearing of the Word of God alone which will save you, and by the foolishness of preaching by God's chosen ministers, filled by the Holy Spirit. So make sure that your Pastor is one who glorifies Christ alone, and preaches the true gospel of God's grace to sinners. No gimmicks, no pet talks or humour, but one who is absolutely Christ centred, and lives a holy life. One also who preaches the truth of God's Holy laws, which we have all broken. The law is a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, and is written on the hearts of His people. Those who are saved, are no longer under the penalty of the law, but nevertheless, the law is good and holy. Christ has fulfilled all the commandments on our behalf.

“For the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 4 v. 12-13

Search your own heart, to see if you are truly a blood-bought child of the living God.
