So there will be two classes of people. Those whose deeds have earned them a place in the Book of Life, and those whose deeds have not.
“And the one sitting on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new!’ And then he said to me, ‘Write this down, for what I am about to tell you is trustworthy and true.’ And he also said, ‘It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.
‘But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars – their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulphur. This is the second death.'” [Revelation 21:5-8 NLT]
He says he is the Beginning and the End. Note the capital letters.
In the Beginning, who was there? Remember Genesis? Before the earth was made, before the stars, before everything…
And at the end, when the earth is finished and the stars start to go out, He will be there as well.
But who will join Him in the Holy City?
The one on the throne sets out his stall for all to read. If you are on the list, you will be saved. But of your deeds have meant that you are not in the Book of Life, you are heading for a second death. Look at that list again. Can you say with all honesty that you are in the clear?
The countdown is over. It’s time for you to decide.
