THE SADDEST VERSE!
Revelation 20:11-15 (15) – Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. (NLT)
On Judgement Day, some books will be opened, and Daniel saw a similar vision that ‘…the judgment was set, and the books were opened’ (Daniel 7:10; 12:1-3). However, more importantly, another book was opened that has all records. This book is the ‘Book of Life’. There’s a place we are going after our sojourn on earth. There, everyone will get judged according to their records in the Book of Life.
If we know that our deeds; both the secrets and open will be revealed on the last day, then we must check our works. Are you a traitor, rumour spreader, adulterer, pimp (someone who organises prostitutes for personal gains), liar or murderer? Maybe you are a fraudster who dupes people and call it an online business or you put on mini top and skirts to seduce men and sell your body (Revelation 21:8).
Beloved, if you are guilty of any of the above and other sins, repent now before it’s too late (Hebrews 9:27). Jesus is calling and does not want you to perish (John 3:16). Don’t be a dancer at the gate of hell because as our Bible reading says, ‘anyone missing in the Book of Life was cast into the fire’. This to me is the saddest verse! To escape this, let’s always examine ourselves: ‘What If’ rapture is now, would my name be found in the Book of Life? (1 Corinthians 15:52).
Hymn: Softly and Tenderly, Jesus Is Calling – Will L. Thompson (1880)
1. Do a personal reflection, confess, repent and tell God to strengthen you live a life of holiness.
1. I decree! Heaven shall not weep on my account.
2. My dream life, refuse to cooperate with invaders and be revived.
3. Father, please restore to me my garment of honour.
