The Book of Life!

Scripture reading for September 4th: Daniel 10-12

I love books!  I have a great library and it is always growing!   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)  Volumes of books have been written, but the most important book on earth is the Holy Bible!

The Bible speaks of another book that should be 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, the Son of Man and Son of God.  (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)  There will be a resurrection of all men with reward for some and punishment for others.  (Daniel 12:2-3)  (Revelation 22:12-15)

The righteous are promised eternal glory for their obedience. (Revelation 22:1-6)  (Daniel 12:3)  They will shine like the stars of heaven forever and ever!  They will 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)  People would be seek this knowledge but only the wise would find it.  The wise were those whose names were written down in that special book of Heaven!  But 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!

“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
