"And I saw a great white throne, and him that 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, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." - Revelation 20:11-15 KJV.
One of the most solemn passages of Scripture in the word of God. The Bible is clear to say "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" - Hebrews 9:27 KJV. There is death, there is judgment, and there is hell. The coming judgment of God ought to awaken every soul on the face of this earth. A great white throne, God sitting upon the throne. God is Judge. Earth and heaven shall flee away. The books opened. Every man judged according to their works. This judgment is the judgment of the unsaved, those that rejected God's salvation through His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. They have rejected the Saviour, and have perished in their sins into death and hell. One day, death and hell will deliver up those souls to God's great white throne. There is a fate worse than hell. Those in death and hell will be resurrected unto damnation. They will stand before the living God to be judged. Death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire, where the beast, the false prophet, and Satan himself will be in torments for ever and ever. Every soul not found written in the book of life will one day be cast into the lake of fire. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
These are the souls that would not come to the Lord Jesus for salvation. They rejected the gift of God. Their names will not be found in God's book of life. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23 KJV. A frightening day to behold. They judged themselves unworthy of eternal life, counting the gift of God as foolishness. Knowing that the wages of sin is death, they choose to pay their own wages in the lake of fire.
Indeed the word of God is clear..."He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." - John 3:36 KJV. Again in 1 John 5:10-12 KJV - "He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." There is only one way to have your name written in God's book of life, through God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Is your name written in the book of life?
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13 KJV.
This is why I preach the Gospel, daily. I am a poor man saved by this Gospel. I have seen and tasted that the Lord is good unto those that call upon His name. By His grace my name is written in the book of life. This is no fairy tale, no fable, no fictional make believe. This is the TRUTH according to the very word of God. Nothing in this world is worth your soul. This is why I also WARN of ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing, false teachers. Let no man deceive you. Let no man, or angel, or devil deceive you into the eternal loss of your own soul. Do not deceive your own self! God commands all sinners come to repentance towards Him and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. He came not to destroy the lives of men, but to save them.
