And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. — Revelation 20:12 (KJV)
Do you believe life after death? Do you believe the day of judgement? Do you believe God is fair? Do you believe one day you will be in heaven with Jesus?
There are four final facts await the world at the Last Day:
1) The return of Jesus Christ.
2) The resurrection of the dead.
3) The last judgement.
4) The creation of the new heavens and earth
In revelation 20, it reveals to us Satan is now completely defeated and thrown into the lake of fire to be destroyed. Now, In front of God, the last judgement starts. All are judged, no matter great or small. There are two books before God, one is the book of deeds, the other is the book of life.
The book of life contains the names of those who have put their trust in Christ to save them. The books of deeds includes the recorded deeds of everyone, good or evil. Everyone’s life will be reviewed and evaluated. NO ONE IS SAVED BY DEEDS, BUT THROUGH FAITH. However, deeds are seen as clear evidence of a person’s actual relationship with God.
Doesn’t this remind us how we should live our life and chose our destinies today? Step our in faith, you the children of God!
Also if anyone is interested in the great book of revelation, here is a full movie about it from you tube. Very Good!
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. — 2 Thessalonians 2:3
2 Thessalonians is a follow up letter to 1 Thessalonians. In this letter, Paul indicates various events that must precede the second coming of Christ. Just as what today’s verse has described ‘That day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.” This period of extreme turmoil on the earth is known as the GREAT TRIBULATION.
Throughout history there have been individuals who epitomized evil and who were hostile to everything Christ stands for. These antichrists have lived in every generation and will continue to work their evil. Then Just before Christ’s second coming, “the man of lawlessness… the man doomed to destruction,” a completely evil man, will arise. He will be Satan’s tool, equipped with Satan’s power (2:9). This lawlessness man will be THE antichrist.
Here is a very interesting video describing “the Antichrist” using actual bible verses. The words of God in this video provides us a pretty good understanding on this subject, though the video images can be slightly better.
