Bible Tuesday – Revelation Part 38

I saw a Great White Throne and the One Enthroned. Nothing could stand before or against the Presence, nothing in Heaven, nothing on earth. And then I saw all the dead, great and small, standing there—before the Throne! And books were opened. Then another book was opened: the Book of Life. The dead were judged by what was written in the books, by the way they had lived. Sea released its dead, Death and Hell turned in their dead. Each man and woman was judged by the way he or she had lived. Then Death and Hell were hurled into Lake Fire. This is the second death—Lake Fire. Anyone whose name was not found inscribed in the Book of Life was hurled into Lake Fire.

Revelation 20:11-15

All of us will stand before God and be judged.

All of us.

Every atheist.

Every believer.

Every hypocrite.

Every martyr.

Every murderer.

Every adulterer.

Every King, Queen, Prince and Princess

Every President, Chancellor, Prime Minister and Leader.

Every preacher, teacher, priest and saint.

And from Henry VIII to me, Just Rachel, one thing will be true.

Every knee will bow.

We will all acknowledge Jesus.

And those of us who have placed our trust in Him?  Those whose names are written in the book of life.  Will we be filled with self righteous “I told you so’s”?   No.  We will be more aware than ever that we are completely unworthy of such amazing grace.
