Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

“He‘s Making A List…”

on December 11, 2014

he's making a list“He’s making a list and checking it twice,

                                                                         Gonna find out if your naughty or nice.”

 

The world and Satan always have a counterfeit for the things of God. Man has given many attributes, that belong only to God, to an image that was created to promote commercialism.

GOD IS EVERYWHERE

God is omnipresent, which means everywhere at all times. God is always present – He is always with us and He never leaves us.

Psalm 139: 7-12 NKJV
“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.”

There is no place where we can hide from God. There is not a place in this entire universe where we could go that God isn’t there.

 

GOD MAKES A LIST (BOOK OF LIFE)

God does have a list of those who will receive the greatest gift of all, eternal life in His presence. This “list” is known as the Book of Life.

Revelation 20: 11-15 NKJV

“ Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 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.”

For those whose names appear on the list they will hear “Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

Matthew 25:31-34 NKJV

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world”

For those whose names do not appear on the list they will hear, “Depart from Me, you workers of iniquity.”

Revelation 21:27 NKJV

“ But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

Revelation 20:15 NKJV

“And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Luke 13:27-28 NKJV

“But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.”

 GOD KNOWS IF YOU HAVE BEEN “NAUGHTY” OR “NICE”

God is omniscient which means all-knowing or knowing everything. He knows everything you do and everything you think about. He also knows where you are at all times. God knows each of the stars by name and He knows how many there are. Just as He knows the name of every star, He knows your name also.

Psalm 147:4-5 NKJV

“He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.”

God knows us intimately. Our motives, desires, and words are known by Him even before we express them to Him.

Psalm 139: 1-6 NKJV
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.”

GOD’S GIFT TO YOU

Salvation is a gift. We can’t earn it or buy it. To receive this gift we simply confess our sin to God and ask forgiveness for our sins.

1 John 1:9 NKJV

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Romans 10:9-10 NKJV

“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”

When we admit that we have sinned, believe that Jesus shed His blood for forgiveness of our sins, and confess our sin to God (asking Him to forgive us) we receive the gift of salvation. God takes our sins away and washes us clean. He completely removes our sin and guilt from us. AND HE WRITES OUR NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE!

Jesus will return at a time when we least expect it. Are you ready for His return?

1 Thessalonians 5:2 NKJV

“For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”

2 Peter 3:10 NKJV

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”
