Is Your Name Written in the Father’s “Book of Life?”
By Marlys Norris, Christian Author
Do you know that your name is scribed in His book? You are on the heart of God and when you accept His beloved Son as their personal Savior and Lord, your name is scribed in His “Book of Life” forever. “He loves you with an everlasting love.” (Jer.31:3) You have become His precious child and God is watching over you. He will never leave or forsake you..
God does His best to reach everyone – but some reject Him, therefore the opposite is true.
For one who rejects the divine plan of God when the end comes, each of us will stand before Him and give an account of our lives and why we rejected His Son. “And whosoever’s name is not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire”(Revelations 20:15)
Life for every human being is no accident! God knew all of us before the foundation of the earth. We must remember God is our Creator. He is Holy and Just, the great I AM.. He formed each individual in their mother’s womb for birth to take place. And at the right specific moment in time called each one to be born-again and accept Jesus and their names are written in His “Book of Life!” Regardless of the event or their age or understanding, As God’s Holy Spirit moves in each life His “Agape Love and Grace” saves them to the uttermost for eternity. He guides one to “know and love” the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with their heart and soul.
Once a name is written in the “Book of Life” it will never be blotted out even when some step out of the will of God and go astray. However, they must realize it is their choice they cannot blame God for the end result! Going out of God’s will for their life, opens the door to the enemy of one’s soul. And he will bring circumstances into a life that hinders their walk with God. He brings deceptions and false teachings that lead to a false god. He will do anything he can do to hinder the personal relationship with Jesus someone might have had before this decision. His tactic is always to cause a person to dishonor God and take away every soul he can from the Heavenly Father.
Beware, because one who strays too far from God into a sinful life will surely die early. God will shorten their days here on earth and take them “home” to heaven rather than lose them to His enemy. He loves each one of His children so much He doesn’t want to lose anyone. He loves completely! “He always has your best interests at heart.” (Jer.29:11) Listen, He is calling your name so please return to Him NOW!
