Everyone Whose name is in the Book

Back in the early 90’s, my son and I built a small hut, hidden 2 hours hike into the rugged forest country of New Zealand. We had planned it as a hunting base, but my main motive  was for it to be an end times hideaway.

It is still there (built of corrugated aluminium sheets) because my nephew followed my directions – and Google Earth, and picked up the 7mm semi automatic rifle that I had kept there.

I now know what foolishness this thinking is, as I am just now beginning to realize what great and terrible events are about to hit the unaware and complacent people of this world.

When you read prophecies like Zephaniah 1:14-16, Isaiah 13:9-12 and Revelation 6:12-17

then you know that any attempt to avoid or hide from God’s judgement is futile.

THIS is our promise;

Daniel 12:1 At that time will appear Michael, the great Captain who stands guarding your fellow countrymen and there will be a time of anguish, such as has never been known.

But at that moment your people [righteous Israel] will be delivered. Everyone whose name is entered in the Book [of Life]

1 Peter 4:17 The time has come for the Judgement to begin; it is beginning with God’s own household and if it is starting with us, how will it end for those who refuse to obey the Gospel of God? Scripture says; it is hard enough for the righteous to be saved – what then will become of the sinful?

So let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to Him, while continuing to do good. Their Maker will not fail them.

Isaiah 30:18 The Lord is waiting to show you His favour, He yearns to have pity on you, for the Lord is full of justice. Happy are you who wait on Him.

Romans 12:11-13 With unflagging zeal, aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord. Let hope keep you joyful; in trouble stand firm; persist in prayer, contribute to the needs of God’s people and practise hospitality.

Colossians 1:11-12 In His glorious might may He give you ample strength to meet with fortitude and patience whatever comes and to give joyful thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to share in the heritage of His people in His Kingdom of light. I
