Revelation 20:12-15 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Jesus came to give life and give it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
However, there is a judgment of death coming.
Those standing in judgment at this time are judged according to their works.
They did not accept Jesus as Savior.
Standing here are those that did not believe in God.
There are those that believed in a god but thought they would cut a deal later.
People of all nationalities and ethnicities are here.
They are judged by the books. I believe these books are those of the Bible.
Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.’John 5:24
None of them fulfilled the Law and the Prophets and, therefore, are condemned by the words written therein.
None of them accepted Christ as Savior and their name is not in the Book of Life.
There are no atheists in the group. All that stand here now believe in the Lord Jesus Christ because He is the One on the throne.
His nailed scarred hands no longer offer grace and mercy but pronounce judgment.
All are cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
It is final.
It is eternal.
You don’t need to find yourself here!
ACCEPT JESUS AS SAVIOR TODAY!
My neighbor and I were discussing the 2nd death yesterday evening. Coincidental?
I think not.
