Is repentance at the last minute to death a confirm ticket into heaven
You can wait too late,you can't wait until the last minute.
Acts 2:21 'AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.'
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
For whoso ever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. See Joe 2:32. To call upon the name of the Lord implies, (1) That the true God (Jehovah, in the Hebrew quotation) shall be approached in worship, and (2) that there shall be something more than saying, Lord, Lord, etc. (Mt 7:21,22). The language, wherever used, implies coming to the Lord and calling on him in his appointed way. Compare Ac 22:16 2:21 Ge 12:8. This promise of Joel, since it says whosoever, is not limited to the Jewish race.
God's appointed way of being saved:
Romans 10:9-10 (King James Version)
9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus (JESUS AS YOUR LORD) , and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
The spirit of the Lord = freedom
Yeah, you can call on the name of Christ on your deathbed and receive salvation... as long as you believe in Him. God knows the difference...
The joy of the Christian life is much more than just getting to heaven but about living in the presence of God every moment of every day.
Eternal life begins when we know God and Jesus Christ (John 17:3). This can happen on someone's death bed.
Jesus shared a parable about people who come late in the day to work; they received the same wage as the people who worked all day (Matthew 20:1-16). When the workers who worked all day were upset the master told them, "Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?." Jesus added, "So the last will be first, and the first will be last." They had forgotten that it was a privilege and blessing to work for the master all day long rather than worry about whether they would get to work.
So we can receive salvation at the end of our day, but we miss out on living the life God intended for us to live. So why wait?

Is There Any Reason That I Would Want To Go To Heaven?...Is there any reason other than...the other choice is Hell? I have no desire whatsoever to go to such a place that is described in the Bible as Heaven. To me it is just the lesser of two evils. I couldn't imagine worshiping...

Does anyone know how the Rapture is going to work? What method of transport is going to be used? Will it take long, or is it instantaneous like it is on Star Trek? Do we need to take a thermos and sandwiches? And what might the appropriate attire be that day? I was thinking of wearing a ball...
