Am I living a life that is full of worth?
In the end, God will judge the whole earth, everyone who has ever lived. He will judge us based on what we have done. This is not salvation by works, but an evaluation of our faith. We are saved by faith, but dead faith does not save.
Good forgives and forgets everything we have done wrong, if we believe in Christ. His blood covers us. That is how we get out names on the Book of Life. So what is left in the other book?
The only things left are the good things we have done for Jesus. The things we have done for the Lord will be remembered forever. Everything we have done for ourselves, every sin, is worthless. I don’t want my life to be worthless. God has given us these verses so that we can live out lives with hope, and live our lives in light of eternity, full of His love, and full of worth.
The Defeat of Satan
7When the thousand years come to an end, Satan will be let out of his prison. 8He will go out to deceive the nations—called Gog and Magog—in every corner of the earth. He will gather them together for battle—a mighty army, as numberless as sand along the seashore. 9And I saw them as they went up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded God’s people and the beloved city. But fire from heaven came down on the attacking armies and consumed them.
10Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
The Final Judgment
11And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. 12I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. 13The sea gave up its dead, and death and the graveb gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. 14Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. 15And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire
