What’s on Your Record?

Romans 14:11 (KJV)

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Revelation 20:12 (KJV)

12 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.

Since day one someone have been keeping a record on us.  Records such as birth record, immunization record, school record, baptism record, and a death record.  What will be on your record when the books are opened before God.  Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to God, the deeds done in this mortal body.  What will be your confession:

  • I believed in Jesus Christ
  • I feed the hungry
  • I gave to the poor
  • I was baptist
  • I am Saved

Those will be statements that someone will say….will it be you?  It’s time to rethink your plan of salvation the time is now, Jesus Christ is soon to return.  It will be a sad day if Jesus Christ say depart from me I knew you not.

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV)

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

He is faithful and just

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

David and his armies were at war with the Ammonites.  David made the decision to be in Jerusalem instead on the battlefield with his men.  One night he decided to walk his roof and  there he saw a beautiful woman taking a bath in the warm night air.  Instead of walking away, David continue to look at her while she wash.  He inquired who was this woman and  they said she was Bathsheba  married to Uriah.  David immediately sent for her, slept with her, and she become pregnant.  He tried to hide his wrongdoing by sending for her husband with the expectation that he would sleep his wife.  Uriah being an honorable soldier and thinking about his fellow soldiers and how they were out on the field fighting, could not go home and sleep with his wife.  When David found out that his plan backfired, he sent a note to his general ordering him to put Uriah in the hottest battle so he would be killed.  Uriah died and his wife Bathsheba married David after her she completed her days of mourning.  David got away with it and all was well with him.  No!  David had committed adultery, murdered, and tried to hide his sins.  God sent the Prophet Nathan to uncover what he did.

To confess means to admit or declare one’s self guilty of what one is accuse of.  We cannot hide our sins from God.  He sees everything and  is everywhere at the same time.  He is so merciful and gracious that he nudges our heart with condemnation to remind  us that we have done wrong.  When we don’t want to admit to our sin, we will try to cover it, deny it , or put the blame on someone else.  When we come to God and admit that we done wrong, God is right there.  He was just waiting on us to ask for forgiveness so that  He can purify us and free us from the guilt of sin.
