TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I know you are weary and feel inadequate. Stop trying to earn My acceptance and approval. Know you are in Me and I Am in you and that is enough. There is nothing you need to add to your life. Rest in My finished work, I have made you righteous.
HOLY ENOUGH FOR HEAVEN?
There’s going to be a test on your life. God Almighty provided the Bible to let us know exactly what’s going to be on the test and exactly how you can pass the Great White Throne Judgment found in Revelation 20.
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” – Revelation 20:11-15
You only live once, but it’s possible to die twice. This speaks of the second death for the people who are not found in the Book of Life. Let me tell you what this test is about: are you holy or not? Every single one of us has sinned. Every single one of us have fallen short of the glory of God. But I’ve got great news! Jesus Christ left heaven, became a man and He passed the test for us.
He lived 33 years as a human and never sinned. Then, are you ready for this? He offers His A+ grade of holiness to us. There should only be one name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life – “Lamb”. He’s the only One worthy to open it or be in it, but He writes the names of those He has given His grade to alongside His own.
That’s why if you haven’t given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you need to do that. As soon as you do, your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life as though you were the one who lived a sinless life. Receive His free gift and walk in it.
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
For those names found in the Lamb’s book of life, there’s a second test called the Judgment Seat of Christ. This test is to see if you served, but that’s a talk for another day!
