The Books Will Be Opened
Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 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. 13 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. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)
I truly believe that God has Books in which everything we think, say and do are recorded. And I believe there is a Book of Life, in which the names of every born-again believer is recorded. The above Scripture clearly tells us that anyone whose name is NOT found in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire to be tormented forever. BELIEVE it!
Some people think that if their good works outweigh the bad, they will go to Heaven. Such a doctrine is NOT taught anywhere in the Holy Word of God. Galatians 1:6-7 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (KJV) . . . There is only one TRUE Gospel, and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Any OTHER Gospel or doctrine than this is FALSE, and is simply the commandments of men and is doomed by God! Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (KJV) BEWARE!!!
And some people think that EVERYONE will go to Heaven. This FALSE doctrine is being taught more and more, because this is what people want to hear . . . but according to the Bible, it directly opposes what God has to say! BEWARE!!! Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV) . . . According to Jesus (GOD), only a ‘FEW’ will make it to Heaven! Believe God’s Word, not the devil’s false teachers!
Dear one, it is sad to say, but only a FEW people ever find the narrow path to Heaven. Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV) . . . WHY??? Because of all the FALSE doctrine in the world today. People do NOT want to hear that they are sinners bound for Hell. 2 Cor. 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (KJV) . . . The devil has many ways to blind eyes and plug ears from the Truth! False teachers and greedy preachers are how he does it. Only the TRUTH can place you in Heaven! Believe God’s Word!
John 3:15-18 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV) . . . Jesus’ Words.
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV) . . .John the Baptist’s words.
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) . . . Jesus’ Words. See our commentary on John.
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. (KJV) . . . Jesus’ Words. When a person "dies in their sins" . . . they die not only a physical death, but an eternal death (Rev.21:8) in the fires of Hell (Rev.20:15). ALL people 'without Jesus' shall be charged with their sins, and shall be held accountable. "Dying in sin" . . . and "dying in Christ" . . . are two completely opposite things! They that die in faith, die "in Christ" and go to Heaven. They that die "in unbelief" die in sin and go to Hell.
1 John 5:11-12 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. . . . The apostle John’s words. He who has the Son has eternal life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. Do you think you need to belong to a certain church or denomination to have eternal life? That is NOT what God says! There is only one stipulation, one prerequisite; JESUS, the Son of God. IF you have JESUS, you HAVE eternal life . . . NOW! If you do not have Jesus, you do NOT have eternal life! Very simple!
The devil is a liar. Our Lord Jesus calls him the father of all liars (John 8:44). The devil wants you to go to Hell with him, which is where he shall finally go (Rev.20:10). You will be judged out of the books on Judgment Day (Rev.20:12), to decide WHERE your eternal destination is.
God has everything you have ever done written down. God takes sin VERY seriously! Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (KJV) . . . We will be held accountable for any fruitless or futile words we speak. Everything we have ever thought, said or did will be judged!
Personally, I believe that the day we finally and sincerely believe God and accept His Son to save us, that is the day we are born again (Jn.1:12-13; 3:3-8), and it is that day we are granted the Spirit of Christ. John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. (KJV) . . . The ‘world’ is unbelievers.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (KJV)
Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (KJV)
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (KJV) . . . If you do not have the Spirit of Christ (Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit) abiding within you, you do not belong to the family of God, you are not God’s Child, you are the devil’s child. 1 John 3:9-10 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. (KJV)
Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (KJV)
Ephesians 4:30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. (KJV)
I also believe that the day we are born again, is the day that God forgives us for any and all sin we have ever done, that is why He tells us in the Bible not to grieve the Spirit of God (above).
Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. (KJV)
Micah 7:18-19 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. (KJV)
Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. (KJV)
Hebrews 10:16-17 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. (KJV)
Homosexuals have great joy because of all their new found freedoms and rights. They are now even allowed same-sex marriages by Godless governments. It seems that NO one is concerned about the dire warning in the Bible: AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED.
The majority of people today see no harm with Harry Potter, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, or Charmed; but God's Word tells us: 1 Samuel 15:23a For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. - - - - - - - - - (KJV) Anything or anyone who
glorifies the sin of witchcraft, including ignorant and careless parents who defend these series as innocent fun are fools. There is absolutely NOTHING innocent about witchcraft AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED.
The Bible commands women to dress in modest apparel. 1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; (KJV)Modest means of good behavior. The Bible teaches that what a woman wears represents her character. There is NO doubt whatsoever that some American women dress shamefully, reflecting their low morality. According to God’s Word, it is a sin! God will hold EVERY woman (and man) accountable for the way they dress. Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (KJV) . . . Licentiousness = dressing to incite, depravity, disrespect, wantonness, unbridled or excess lust, shamelessness, outrageousness.
These things Paul lists above are like a brood of vipers! Sensual sins, religious sins, social sins, personal sins. Adultery, fornication (prostitution), uncleanness is impurity, pornography; lasciviousness is filthy lewdness, brutality, sadism (abounding in our day). Idolatry, worship of idols (this includes money and everything that takes the place of God). Witchcraft includes drugs, (drugs are used in all heathen religions). Hatred (enmity). Variance is contentions, quarrels. Emulations is rivalry, jealousy. Wrath is a hot temper, fierceness, indignation. Strife is factions, group of dissidents, cliques (little circles in a church hurt the cause of Christ). Seditions is divisions. Heresies here is disunion, parties, sects. Envyings is jealousy, spite, envy. Murder starts with hatred (1 John 3:15). Drunkenness is intoxication by booze or drugs. Revelings is rioting, wantonness.
Paul concludes this list of the works of the flesh by “and such like,” meaning there are many more he could have mentioned. “They which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God” indicates continuous action.
IF you do any of these things STOP IT! Again, I bring up the Prodigal Son. He went so low he got down in the pig pen, BUT . . . he did NOT stay there. The only ones that stay in a pig pen are pigs. If a son gets there, he will NOT be happy until he gets out. If a person says they are a Christian, and continues to live in sin, continues to practice sin (1 Jn.2:1), you are in a VERY dangerous situation. It means you are not a child of God. AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED.
It is rare if a day passes that we don't hear about deliberate crimes being committed by high-ranking politicians. When we consider America's moral collapse over the past few decades, it is not surprising to hear about shameful people high in our government such as Rod Blagojevich (former Governor, Illinois) and Bill Clinton (former U.S. President). These are two of the worst government leaders in history, and there are many more! High-ranking politicians get paid very large salaries, and enjoy huge fringe benefits, and they should NOT betray the American people; but they far too often do. There are many more shamefully sinning or ripping us off that we never hear about! We can be sure they shall be judged! Judgment Day is coming! AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED.
The vast majority of people today refuse to obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mention of Jesus seems to aggravate them to anger and even violence. The Bible clearly warns us of what shall happen to these people. 2 Thes. 1:8-9 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (KJV)
So many people think that God is love, but that He is NOT a God of wrath. They are WRONG!
God's Word cannot be broken or compromised. Most people think God is so loving that He would never cast anyone into Hell to be tormented in the lake of fire (Rev.20:15). Yes! It is difficult to comprehend, but IF your name is not in the book of life, that is exactly what He shall do. Matthew 25:31-33 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (KJV)
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (KJV)
A big problem today is that most people do NOT believe the Bible is inspired by God. Instead they form their own wrong idea about God. It is quite simple . . . you either believe that God wrote the Bible or you don't. If you don't, then you will fall for some false religion that teaches a WRONG idea of who God is, with any number of damnable heresies (2 Pet.2:1), brought by false teachers and greedy preachers! Dear one, God is the Author of the Bible, and He will accept NO excuses from you on Judgment Day, when you stand before Him. IF you have rejected Jesus as the Christ (Messiah), as payment for your sins, you will hear a sentence you do not want to hear! Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (KJV) . . . BEWARE!!!
