Note two things here. Notes that the people that wanted to enter in did the things He said we should
do. They were obedient. But yet, they did not enter in. Why? Because they did not KNOW Him. You can
do all the right things but if you do not know Him, you won't enter in.
1 Corinthians 13:2 says, "If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing." Love is about
YOUR RIGHT TO "ENTER IN" -- TO BRING HEAVEN TO EARTH
God's whole goal is to redeem creation and bring it back under His sovereignty, that the earth would be
back to its original design. How can you bring heave to earth if you have not seen heaven to know what
it is like?
In Matthew 6:9-10, Jesus said, "Pray in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'"
Matthew 28:19-20 says, "And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to
Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded
John 3:11 says, "We speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen..."
1 John 1:3 says, "We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have

1 John 4:17 says, "In this world we are like Jesus" and Jesus said, "Whoever believes in me will do the
works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things..." What did Jesus do? In John 5:19, Jesus
said, "He can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also
does." How can you see what the Father doing without being in the Father's presence, the Father who is
in heaven? We become like our Father by observing our Father who is in heaven.
YOUR RIGHT TO "ENTER IN" -- RECAP
So God allows you to enter heaven because you are a child of Father God through Christ, it's your home
and He wants relationship with you, and because God wants to manifest heaven on earth.
IT IS ALL BY FAITH
So how do we enter in? By faith. Everything we do is by faith and anything not done by faith is a sin.
Romans 14:23 says, "Whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat [if they partake while doubting],
because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin."
Hebrews 11:6 says, "Without faith it is impossible to please Him..."
