Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15
Going through pain, suffering and judgment is something that most people want to do. The desire of most people is to eat, drink and be happy each and every day of their lives, with very little to no concern or worries about tomorrow.
Outside of having pleasure in mind, most people are not concerned about the future, especially long term such as eternity. Days are taken one day at a time with just a desire for more fun filled days.
In his vision, John sees death and hell tossed into a lake of fire. Along with death and hell, everyone whose name is not in the book of life is also thrown into that lake of fire.
While it appears that everyone is free to live life as they want with no consequences, this is not true. As people live their lives, they are building up judgments of God either for or against them. Every action and every thought are being recorded to determine what will occur in the end.
The majority of the world is living to please self and ignoring God each and every day. They have no focus upon eternity or God. As it is they are living in sin and rebellion, whether consciously or not, against God.
Since God is a holy and just God, He has to make a judgment someday against the sin against Him. Jesus has provided a way to have all of those sins and judgments removed, but one has to choose to accept it.
Upon accepting what Jesus provides, one will have his name put into the book of life. He will be made clean and pure before God, saving him from the lake of fire. Any who has not accepted Jesus will be cast into the lake of fire.
God loves you and wants the best for you. Jesus is ready to forgive you of all sins against God, but you must choose to accept what Jesus did and repent of all sins. Until you choose to repent and be forgiven, you are doomed to be cast into a lake of fire with Satan, death and hell in the end.
Choose today to repent and believe upon Jesus and obey Him. Allow your name to be written in the Lamb’s book of life to give you eternal life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will repent of all sins and follow Jesus; that your name will be in the Lamb’s book of life; that you will be holy and righteous before God; and that you will know the true life you can have in Jesus.
