A Book Of Remembrance

We have all heard about the Lamb's Book of Life, but what about the book of Remembrance? God says He will remember those who fear Him, who meditate on Him. Which means to ponder Him, to think on Him, to Adore Him, to stay faithful to Him. Those who fear Him, means to keep Him holy, to obey Him, to keep His commandments.

When God remembers you, there is usually a blessing that follows or in the worse case scenario, a curse. He will remember you, and this passage of scripture tells us there is a book of remembrance. Now I am not saying that once you have asked for forgiveness and accepted the LORD Jesus that he will remember your sins, because Jesus says they are remembered no more. But, I am saying that GOD will remember those who have obeyed Him, and those who have not. Those who have turned their back on GOD, and do not fear Him. Those who do not serve Him.

Malachi 3 v 16-18.....Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of Remembrance was written before Him. For those who fear the LORD, and who meditates on His name. "They shall be Mine", says the LORD of hosts; on the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them, as a man spares hiis own son who serves him. Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.......

How will you be remembered? Let's look at the other book, the most important book, the Lamb's Book of Life.

Rev. 21 v 24-27....And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there.) And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life......

The scripture is talking about the New Jerusalem, where we will spend eternity with GOD the Father, and Jesus the Son of God our Savior. This is the book you most want your name in. You ask, how can I get my name in that book? It is simple.

First admit that you are a sinner, and that you need the LORD to forgive you. Confess your sins to Jesus, and ask for His forgiveness. Ask Him to come into your heart, and reside with you. Ask Him to be your Savior, then make Him Lord over your life. Believe in Him, that He is the only Son of GOD, and that He died on the cross for your sins, so that you might spend eternity with Him and the Father. Then turn from your old ways, and become a new man in Christ. Start following Him and His ways, and not the ways of the world. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit, and then listen to the Holy Spirit as He guides you through life. Obey, the LORD, walk in love towards your neighbor and you will do well.

This is how we should all want God to remember us. We want Him to say, Oh yes, your name is right here in my Son's book of Life. Enter into My kingdom and make yourself at home, for this is now your home, and I am proud to call you Mine. AMEN!

RTB...Deut. 16-18....
