“Anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was hurled into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 20:15 CJB
This should be a sobering verse for everyone! Why? Because it makes it clear you are saved or you are not? We all need to be careful of thinking God gives a pass on sin as some false teachers teach today! This couldn’t be farther from the truth, yes God is gracious, but He also will judge! We all need to repent and turn from sin!
“Not everyone who says to Me, LORD, LORD! will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants.”
Matthew 7:21 CJB
Like Yeshua says here, there are many people out there saying they’re doing things for the LORD, but really are only enriching themselves!
“On that Day, many will say to Me, LORD, LORD! Didn’t we prophecy (or teach) in Your name? Didn’t we expel demons in Your name? Didn’t we perform many miracles in Your name?”
Matthew 7:22 CJB
We all can do many things in the name of the LORD, but if we are still living in sin and being self-centered, then we are doing nothing for the LORD, just living in the world for ourselves!
“Then I will tell them to their faces, I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!”
Matthew 7:23 CJB
Yeshua makes it pretty clear here, if you’re not living for Him you’ll have no part of Him in His kingdom! How do we keep ourselves in check? By being in His word and doing it!
“I treasure Your word in my heart, so that I won’t sin against You.”
Psalm 119:11 CJB
Today, let’s do the best thing we can do, that is be in the Word of God and not only do it, but live it!
Have a bless day in the LORD!
