Lord, it is my prayer that people will not have to find out in the long run that their names are not written in the book of life. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody, even though it is a reality for many. Instead, help people know this now, while they have breath. That if they confess their sins and come unto You, then they can be saved still. What I fear is that many people will end up dying in a state of mind that they are saved, but really were not. It would be terrifying to know that what we did in this life was not enough or didn’t merit salvation in Your kingdom. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is so important to our way of life. How can I even know what I should be doing for You and not the flesh, if I am not led by the Spirit? One thing I know, God, is that the Holy Spirit leads me into sharing the gospel with others. I become even more selfless and desirous to tell people about You, Jesus. And not just this, but to help others in need, no matter their condition in life. Lord, You have led me in this life and I am so grateful. Keep me on the path that leads to heaven. If I ever go off track, let me know right away. It is not in me to willfully sin against the God I love above all things. And Lord, bring into people’s hearts what goes against Your will and what is for You. Then, can every evil thing be removed from our lives, in order to let Your light in. Lord, show me Your mysteries and help me gain the correct interpretation of the Bible at all times. I love You, God. Amen.
Revelation 17:7-9 (KJV)
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
Make sure you are not on the wrong side with God. Many people are and will find out that their names are not in the book of life.
