As we look at Revelation and judgement day which all of us will face one day,
John is writing what Jesus showed him. Revelation 20:12-15 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it: and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
As we look at what Jesus has prepared for us, whose name is in the book of life, we see a building which is beyond imagination.
I know we try to make our home look as good as we can or can afford. Just look at what Jesus has prepared for us! Revelation 21:18-27 And the building of the wall of it was of “jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.
The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, every several gate was of one pearl: andthe street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”
As we look at what Jesus has prepared for those who love him, just think how much he loved us, first of all he left the splendor of Heaven and came to earth and died for us and rose from the grave and went back to Heaven and prepared a place like we haveread in Revelation.
It is hard for us to realize this kind of love.
In order to receive our permanent home in Heaven we have to have our name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
One question, Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?
