The Most Important Book!
Scripture reading for September 3rd: Daniel 10-12
The Apostle John said that if all that Jesus did were written down, the whole world could not contain all the books that would be written! (John 21:25) I believe that we are studying the most important book on earth, the Holy Bible! But there is another book that should be just as important to every human being. It is the Book of Life found before the throne of God. In that book are written the names of all who have been adopted into the family of God by faith in Jesus Christ. (Daniel 12:1) (Revelation 20:12, 15) If your name is written in that book, you will be delivered from the coming wrath against sin that flows from the Ancient of Days! (Daniel 7:10) (Revelation 20:14)
Daniel wrote about a coming resurrection of all men with rewards for those written in the book and everlasting shame for those not recorded. (Daniel 12:2-3) The righteous were promised eternal glory for their obedient faith. (Revelation 22:1-6) (Daniel 12:3) They would shine like the stars of heaven forever and live in the heavenly city where God Himself and the Lamb, Jesus Christ, is the source of all light! They will behold Him and see His face!
Daniel was told to seal up the words of his book for the time of the end. (Daniel 12:4) He was told that knowledge would increase as time went on. People would be seeking knowledge but only the wise would find it. The wise were those whose names were written down in that special book of Heaven!
John was told in Revelation 22:10, not to seal up the words of his book of prophecy because the time was near for it’s fulfillment! Are you sure your name is in the most important Book in the universe? Why not honestly check your heart today for faith in Jesus Christ?
“Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near. Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” “Behold I am coming soon and my reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.” Revelation 22:10-12
