Is heaven real?

Is heaven real? If it is real, who will enter heaven after they die?
These questions worry many people.

Many realise that when they face death, it is too late to change how they lived on earth. Some believe they will be judged for what they did on earth. They fear that they didn’t do enough to deserve eternal heaven.
Jesus confirms in his teaching that heaven is real. He often teaches about it and warns people of the dangers of the opposite place , eternal hell.

Watch the video, where Jesus challenges a rich man who was concerned about his eternal future. By the end of their chat Jesus tells him how to find eternal peace. He says to the man that he must give away his earthly riches and follow him. During this same event Jesus praises his disciple Peter, who had left everything to follow him. It seems that Jesus speaks about one main requirement for entering heaven. It is a willingness to follow Jesus.

See what Jesus teaches about heaven and eternal life.

Read what teaches teaches us about heaven and eternal life

Mark 10:17-31 (NIV)

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’ ”
20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”
21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”
27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
28 Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”
29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life. 31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
