THE BOOK OF LIFE

KEY SCRIPTURE: Revelation 20:15 NHEB “If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire”.

GOD the judge of all flesh is a just God. All men would be judged according to their works. Rev 20:12 “I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. “This scripture teaches us all that, one day, each person would be judged according to all that he did in the flesh. There are some people in places of authority who treat their subjects like rubbish. Dear one, understand you are a man like every other man. You would not be given any special treatment from others. You would be judged. Those bosses who demand sex before they give employment, would one day stand before the judgment seat of Christ and be judged for exploiting poor girls.

Certain politicians have stolen so much money from the state. They go to Christian gatherings and make fat donations thinking this would appease God. Don’t deceive yourself. Is your name in the book of life. Rev 21:27 NHEB There will in no way enter into it anything profane, or one who causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life. “What is your lifestyle? Some people go round teaching that the soul of a man is mortal and just as the body ceases to function at death, the same happens to the soul. This is an erroneous teaching. Death is not just a cessation of life but a separation of the spirit from the physical mortal part. James 2:26 NHEB. For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead. Your spirit is the real you. It is the presence of the spirit in the body that gives it life. Your body is called a tent or a temple. 2Co 5:1 NHEB. For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, everlasting, in the heavens. This body is described as a house. Live with the consciousness that you would live forever but you would be judged.

Apostle Paul spoke about certain men whose names were written in the. He knew their names were written in the Lamb’s book of life. Anyone whose name is written in the book of life knows certainly that his or her name is written therein. Phi 4:3 NHEB “Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, for they labored with me in the Good News, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.” Paul knew that these men had their names in the book of life. Do you have your name in the book of life? If you are not sure then your name is not there. You have got to be sure. To do so you must surrender your life to the Lordship of Jesus. You have to follow and serve the Lord diligently so you would make your calling sure.

YOU may say the following prayer. Do this from your heart.

PRAYER

O heavenly father, today I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord of my life. I believe in my heart that He rose up again after the third day. Help me Lord to serve you till I meet you.
