*RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL*
*YOUR NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE .*
Monday, September 21st .
_*And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of lifeâ¦ (Revelation 22:19).*_
Many have assumed that when someone gives his heart to Christ, thatâs when his name is written in the Book of Life. But that isnât what the Bible teaches. Itâs never really about your name being written in the Book of Life; the problem is about being removed from the Book of Life.
In Exodus 32:32, Moses said to God, _*ââ¦blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.â*_ Moses knew about the Book of Life; itâs not the book where your name is written when youâre born again, because Moses wasnât âborn again.â So, whatâs the Book of Life? Itâs the book where God registers everyone who was ever born into this world.
Read our theme verse again; it was a warning to everyone. Godâs plan originally was to have every one of us with Him. The Bible says Heâs _*â...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentanceâ*_ (2 Peter 3:9). Everlasting fire was never prepared for human beings (Matthew 25:41), but for the devil and his angels. But God gave man the power of choice.
Whoever doesnât find their names in the Book of Life eventually, have themselves to blame. Godâs reply to Moses in Exodus 32:33 that we read earlier was, _*â...Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my bookâ*_ (Exodus 32:33). What this simply means is that you live your life unto God.
Walk every day in love and in righteousness, and your name will remain in the Book of Life. Live a life that glorifies Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:15 says, _*âAnd that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.â*_
*Faithful and righteous Father, thank you for the privilege to be a witness of your saving power; I pray for souls around the world today, to receive your Word and be converted. Also, I declare that my works in the Kingdom, and walk with you, are purified by your Spirit, for your glory, in Jesusâ Name. Amen.*
*FURTHER STUDY:* *||* *Isaiah 50:7 TLB* Because the Lord God helps me, I will not be dismayed; therefore, I have set my face like flint to do his will, and I know that I will triumph. *||*
*||* *Mark 10:29-30* And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. *||*
*||* *Revelation 3:5* He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. *||*
