Does The Bible Make It Clear Who Will Be Saved? John 3:36

Does the Bible make it clear with a yes or no who will be saved and spend eternity in Heaven?

"Whoever believes in the son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the son shall not see life, for God's wrath remains on them." John 3:36.

WHOEVER
"Whoever" implies an open invitation to anyone and everyone without distinction. It says there is no restriction, anyone may come.

BELIEVES
To believe is to take God at his word. If God made a promise we can be sure he will keep it, so we should believe his promise.

IN THE SON
God the Son came as the man, Jesus, there can be no one better to believe in. His death pays for our sin, and it is more than enough. He alone is able to secure salvation for us.

REJECTS
To reject is to say "no" or to refuse something. Maybe we reject because of pride, or negative things we heard or maybe our eyes are blinded to the truth.

If we reject God's offer of free salvation purchased by the death of his son, we should not wonder he rejects our efforts to earn salvation, which are so small by comparison. We should not wonder that he rejects what amounts to saying, "God, your way is not good enough mine is better."

WRATH
No one fears the wrath of an angry mouse. We are intimidated by the wrath of a peer. We respect the wrath of a police officer or judge. We should tremble at the wrath of the Almighty who has power to create all things and destroy forever.

Humble yourself, don't let someone else make up your mind about your destiny forever, pray and ask God to open your eyes. Believe on the lord Jesus and have life.
