MATTHEW 7:23_will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me…
I can think of nothing sadder than to have the ultimate source of love and compassion, Jesus, say He does not know me. The One who has loved me from my birth! And now I stand before Him at my death and my name is not recorded in His Book of Life!
I may face a lot of hardships, pain, and struggles in life, but glory to God, I will never hear those words spoken to me! And neither will any of you who completed the August 29th Salvation Post in this blog. Don’t for a minute let the devil deceive you into believing otherwise. This verse is not for you.
There comes a time when rescue is no longer an option—a point of no return. That day comes when Jesus opens the Book of Life and does not find your name. The names in the Book of Life are the names of the saved—whose hearts were opened to the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
I wish Jesus had not used the word many in this teaching—but He did. There are going to be some surprises on Judgment Day because Jesus sees through sheep’s clothing.
You don’t have to be one who is surprised.
Get your name in the Book!
Messiah, Praise You that Your blood wrote my name in the Book! In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ writes my name in the Book—With His blood!
