If you want to fly, you need to break free from the stuff that weighs you down –
How can I be sure I’ll go to Heaven?
Bill and Wilma Watson want to help you break free from emotional baggage.
Their teaching comes from years of experience as they’ve seen many healed and set free.
Throughout the teaching sessions, they will prove to you from the Bible that the fight has been won by Jesus when He died on the Cross and rose again. They will help you take hold of the victory that is already yours! Press play for video, ‘Redeemed’ by Big Daddy Weave.
It may surprise you to learn that about 70% of people who come to us for prayer do not have assurance that they will go to Heaven when they die.
Therefore, in this first of eleven sessions we’ll answer the question, “How can I be sure I’ll go to Heaven?”
So can I be sure that I’ll go to Heaven when I die? The answer to that question is, ‘YES’. You can be sure that you are God’s precious, loved child and that you will be with Him for eternity. We have shown hundreds of people, from the Bible, how they can be sure that they are part of the Kingdom of Heaven.
God is a good God. He has good things planned for each of us.
Let’s look at what the Bible says, personalised for you, in Ephesians 2:10:
I am God’s masterpiece. He has created me anew in Christ Jesus, so I can do the good things he planned for me long ago.
God has a plan for each of our lives. This is how we discovered God’s plan for our lives together. When I was 16 years of age, God impressed upon me that I would do 6 years of nursing and that after two years in Bible College, I would get married and go to Ethiopia as a missionary. That’s exactly what happened!
Bill had spent five years in Ethiopia as a missionary where the Lord assured him that he would give him a wife when he returned to Australia.
On Bill’s way home to Australia he went via Singapore.
While there he bought the wedding and engagement rings by faith and a watch which had the word ‘Rebekah’ on it.
While reading the Bible, God spoke to Bill and said, “As it was with Rebekah in the Bible, so it will be with you. I will lead you.”
When he got home, Bill asked God, “Where will I find my Rebekah?” God led him to 2nd Kings Chapter 22 in the Bible, where he read, “She is in the College”.
Travelling to the Bible College from which Bill graduated, he asked God, as did Abraham’s servant who went to find a wife for Isaac, “Let it be the first one I meet, then I’ll know that this is the one you have chosen for me”.
I was the first person Bill met, but nothing was said that day. God continued to lead Bill and it was confirmed time and again in amazing ways that I was the one God had chosen for him.
When we did meet again, we each shared how God had led us. The leading of God was so clear that Bill proposed and we were engaged an hour after we met!
I’ve discovered that often there is a test before we receive God’s best: for a week before I met Bill I was proposed to by a man whom I had become fond of, except God hadn’t told him to go to Ethiopia.
Life is full of choices. You’ll be empowered to choose and achieve your God-given destiny when you know for sure your God-given identity.
In order to know your destiny you need to know your identity
Know that you are a precious, unconditionally loved child of Almighty God and that you will live with Him for eternity. Having a personal relationship with God as your loving Heavenly Father is vital in knowing for sure that you will go to Heaven when you die.
We have several who come to us for prayer who know the “Our Father” prayer, but don’t know for sure that they are part of God’s family.
They don’t know God personally as their Heavenly Father.
Do you know for sure that you are a child of God?
A precious child of the great creator of the universe?
Let’s see how God, through His amazing grace, can make ordinary people like you and me become a child and be sure of our eternal destiny.
Press play for video, “Amazing Grace”
Many have sung “Amazing Grace” but have not yet experienced God’s amazing grace. They know about Jesus but don’t know Him in their heart. They may even have raised their hands in church or made a decision at some point but still only have a head knowledge of Jesus!
We have helped hundreds receive God’s grace and know for sure that they are a child of God and will be with Him for eternity.

May be you are asking, “How do I become one of God’s children”? Would you like us to show you, based on the Word of God, how you can have a personal relationship with God and be sure that you are a citizen of heaven?
John 1:12 tells us that:
As many as received Him, (referring to Jesus) to them he gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.
In this Bible verse there is something to believe, something to receive and something to become.Who or what are you to believe in?
You are to BELIEVE in Jesus’ name
Jesus’ name means: all that He is and all that He has done for you. That He is the Son of God. To believe in Jesus’ name is to trust and rely on His name. Press play for video, ‘Believe’.
Many believe about Jesus but have trouble receiving Him. Just knowing about God is a start. However, Satan knows about God but it doesn’t do him any good.
Knowing about God’s amazing grace is not enough.
You have to RECEIVE His grace for yourself
We offer people a pen and ask them, “If I offered you this pen, when would it become yours? They all answer, “When I take it!” “That’s right,” I say, “You have to take it.” Receiving God’s grace and becoming a child of God only becomes yours when you take hold of or lay claim to it for yourself.
Would you like to receive from Jesus His forgiveness and love? Before you answer that question, Bill will pray for you. press play for audio and Bill will pray the prayer below.
Lord Jesus, thank You that You love every person listening to my voice. Thank You that You want to bless them by giving them a free gift from Heaven. I forbid the powers of darkness that would want to stop them from receiving from You. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.
There is not a set prayer in the Bible as to how to receive Jesus but, on the understanding of John 1:12, press play for video and Bill will show you how we pray the prayer below.
Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God. Thank You for dying on the Cross for my sins. Please forgive me. I receive You now Jesus, as my Saviour and Lord. Make me a child of God. Amen.
Having prayed to God from your heart, let me ask you, “What are you now?”
When I ask those who prayed the prayer that question they all tell me that they are a child of God.
“How do you know?” I ask. They looked at the Bible verse and told me, “Because I have BELIEVED and RECEIVED and BECOME a child of God!”
Salvation is more than a prayer. More than a decision card. It is receiving Jesus Himself and becoming a child of God.
Heaven is not just a place you go to when you die!
You have now begun your God-given destiny in the Kingdom of God
As you make Jesus number one in your life, you will experience His love, and power, and have victory over sin and circumstances here and now. You now have direct access to God in Heaven at any time, and can take hold of the blessings of Heaven in prayer, and see God bless and use you here on earth. Press play for video and see how you grow as His child.
In the video we saw that we are to progressively become more and more like Jesus. In second Corinthians we are shown how to become more like Jesus. It says in 2 Corinthians 3:18 (CEV):
The Lord’s Spirit makes us more and more like our glorious Lord.
As we seek to walk in the Spirit being continually aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence, we’ll want to please God by doing what He tells us to do in His Word. This is what Bible encourages us to do in the book of Romans 13:12a &14 (ESV):
Let us cast off the works of darkness … and put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
We cast off the works of darkness by stopping the evil practices of the past – putting them off – renouncing them, and then we put on the Lord Jesus Christ. That is, we clothe ourselves with His presence.
When we worked in Southern Ethiopia and someone wanted to receive Jesus: they raised their left hand to show that they were sorry for their sins and wanted to renounce and put off all the evil practices of the past. They would then raise their right hand and accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour!
In the photo there is a witch doctor and a young boy receiving Jesus.
The witch doctor confessed that he had killed the young boy’s father and was about to kill him.
In the remaining ten sessions we will teach you how to put off whatever it is that is keeping you from enjoying all the wonderful things God has for you. If you found it difficult to receive Jesus’ love and forgiveness in this session, don’t give up, be sure to continue to go through the sessions for we will explain possible reasons why people find it hard to receive and experience God’s marvellous love.
How do I break free from chronic fear and anxiety?
