The Benefits Of The Name Of Jesus



  A STORY BEFORE TODAY'S LESSON
SOMEONE ASKED BROTHER BOB HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO ISRAEL
BROTHER BOB SAID NO
THEN THEY SAID ARE YOU PLANNING TO VISIT ISRAEL SOON
BROTHER BOB SAID YES
AND I DON'T NEED A PLANE TICKET ON EL AL ISRAELI AIRLINES
PICTURED ABOVE
SOON I'LL BE CAUGHT UP IN THE CLOUDS TO BE WITH JESUS
COME BACK TO THIS EARTH WITH JESUS ON A WHITE HORSE
TO RULE AND REIGN WITH JESUS FOR 1000 YEARS
IN JERUSALEM ISRAEL AS A KING AND A PRIEST


OK ANOTHER STORY ABOUT AN EAGLET WHO LIVED WITH THE CHICKENS
PICTURED ABOVE
There once was an eaglet that came down from a migration into a barnyard
and liked it so much that he stayed in the barnyard with the chickens.
When his companions flew overhead, the eaglet's first impulse was to join them
but he had fed too well and could rise no higher than the eaves of the barn.
The day came when his old fellow travelers could fly overhead without his even hearing their call.

Many christians are like this eaglet who once mounted up with wings like eagles
but are now content to live in the barnyard of this world.
They may have a momentary impulse to sing  
My heart has no desire to stay where doubts arise and fears dismay
But they have fed too well and settle in this world's barnyard
and the day comes when they no longer respond to the call from on high.

Friends don't be like this eaglet
Remember the world is our enemy
Be not deceived; Evil communications corrupt good manners.
 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,
and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you.
Witness to unsaved sinners in public places showing them the love of Jesus
but don't be with unsaved sinners in their homes when they drink and do drugs.

     Alright, for today's lesson let's look at the many benefits of the name of Jesus. First the name of Jesus is a saving name. Pictured above Acts 4:12 says neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Romans 10:13 also says For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved.

     Buddha, Mohammed, Gandhi, and Allah can't save anyone. Only the name of Jesus can save anyone. Water baptism, works, and wafers won't save anyone; People have asked Brother Bob what plan do you offer for salvation. Brother Bob tells these people I don't offer a plan; I offer a person named Jesus for salvation. Salvation's not in a plan, church membership, or shaking hands with a six foot spiritual icicle after church; Salvation's in a person named Jesus. Right now get saved; repent, stop sinning, and make Jesus God of your life, believing daily that Jesus died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.

     And take time to read two more bible scriptures that prove that only the name of Jesus can save anyone. Mattthew 1:21 says And she (Mary) shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS, for He shall save His people from their sins. Also John 1:12 says But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.

     Next we see pictured above that the name of Jesus defeats the devil. Jesus said at Mark 16:17 in my name shall they cast out devils. Luke 10:17 also says And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

     Friends remember the promise of Psalm 91:11 For He (Jesus) shall give his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways; they shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. When you pray daily say, in the name of Jesus, I give my angels power to bind the devil and his demons and cast them into the pit of hell and lake of fire.

     The reason christians should cast the devil and his demons into the pit of hell and lake of fire is stated at Psalm 140:9-10. Speak this scripture: As for the head of those that compass me about (the devil) let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Let burning coals fall upon them; let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again. The bible tells us to tell our angels in the name of Jesus to cast the devil into the deep pits of hell and the lake of fire because the devil can not rise up again from these places.
  
   
     Another benefit about the name of Jesus is stated at Philippians 2:9: Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (even the devil has to bow his knee to Jesus) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

     Truly there is power in the name of Jesus. Many politicians, governors, and senators are afraid to mention the name of Jesus in their speeches. Instead they say bless God, bless the Lord, but they won't say bless Jesus. But one day soon, Jesus will be King of this earth for 1000 years in Jerusalem and every nation will have to say bless King Jesus to receive any blessing.

     Notice also the second picture of Colossians 3:17 that says And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Friends everywhere, believe the promise Jesus said about His name at John 14:13-14 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. Brother Bob believes this: I pray in Jesus name that anyone on this earth that reads these words will always be healed and get saved and live forevermore in peace with Jesus. In the name of Jesus bless the saints reading this to be able to minister, travel, and reach multitudes on this earth with the gospel message of salvation by our Lord Jesus.

     Another benefit about the name of Jesus is seen at Acts 5:40 pictured above where saints can rejoice that they are counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. Remember, the reason saints are persecuted by this world and enemies is (not because of us) (it's because of Jesus in us). 1 Peter 4:14 tells us how to respond when we are persecuted because of the name of Jesus; The scripture says If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy (not depressed) are ye; for the Spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you; on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.

     I pray in Jesus name that all my friends all over this earth can live Luke 6:22 and say I'm blessed when men shall hate me, and when they shall separate me from their company (Brother Bob is blessed and rejoicing because all my Jewish relatives have nothing to do with me because of Jesus), and shall reproach me, and cast out my name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake (because of the name of Jesus). I'm gonna rejoice in that day and leap for joy (and like Brother Bob find the nearest Walmart bathroom and leap for joy with no shame) for behold my reward is great in heaven.

     Lord Jesus let us all be like the apostles who rejoiced after they were beaten for speaking in the name of Jesus. Acts 5:40 says And when they had called the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. and daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

     And finally the name of Jesus brings healing and peace. After Peter spoke the name of Jesus Christ to the lame man pictured above, the lame man was healed. Acts 3:6 says Then Peter said (to the lame man), Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. 

     Here's how the lame man described his healing; First there was a lameness, then a look, then a limp, and then a leap of joy OR  First there was a look, then a lifting, then life in the ankles and then a leap. And Acts 4:10 again proclaimed that the lame man was healed by the name of Jesus saying Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.

     And to conclude the name of Jesus is a strong tower where saints can find safety. Proverbs 18:10 says The name of the Lord (Jesus) is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it and is safe. Brother Bob has had the name of Jesus on his apartment door for 27 years and has been safe from all harm. Every time I close my apartment door I say the name of Jesus is on my apartment door and my home is safe. I encourage my friends everywhere to place the name of Jesus on the doors of their homes and everywhere (in their cars) to stop the devil from stealing, killing, and destroying. Remember the name of Jesus will cast out the devil.

     My friend Sheba once told me Brother Bob what will stop people from coming through the windows of my home and stealing. I told Sheba to put the name of Jesus on her front and back doors. The next day I rejoiced when I saw the name of Jesus on every door and window of Sheba's house. And wow Sheba and her kids have been blessed for 15 years and nothing has been stolen or harmed from their home.

     Now, since the name of Jesus has many blessings and benefits, take time to left click this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyPT3lVSpmo&list=PLBA13EE4AD3A8B6E1&index=186 and sing All hail the power of Jesus' name about the benefits of the name of Jesus. I pray in Jesus name that multitudes of people all over this earth will sing the hymn All hail the power of Jesus' name and receive peace and strength as they sing and view this blessed youtube video. Jesus bless all my friends all over this earth from Russia, South Korea, India and the USA. If you have been blessed by this lesson, remember the advice from Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord (Jesus) our God. 

     I pray in Jesus name this bible lesson blesses and saves multitudes all over this earth.

     OK, for today's lesson Brother Bob asks my friends everywhere Are you rejoicing about the blessed hope? The picture above tells us what the blessed hope is at Titus 2:13 saying Looking for that blessed hope (that is) the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (when Jesus appears in the clouds to meet the caught up living and dead in Christ saints with eternal blessings). Right now get saved, repent, stop sinning, make Jesus God of your life, and daily believe that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again and become a saint rejoicing in the blessed hope.

     Friends all over this earth, we should all be looking for this blessed hope every second of the day, rejoicing that Jesus could soon gloriously appear in the clouds, catching up saints to Jesus to leave this wretched earth and receive peace with our Lord Jesus forevermore. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 promises For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

     Today multitudes of people do not rejoice in this blessed hope. Most people love this world more than Jesus. They want to enjoy and stay with their money, mansions, palaces, gold, and silver on this earth instead of getting caught up to live in eternal peace with Jesus in the clouds. These people don't want to leave their earthly wealth. I have news for these unbelievers in Jesus as God; 2 Peter 3:10 says the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Only the Word, Jesus, and what we do for Jesus will last forever. Jesus said at Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.


     Romans 5:1-2 tells us to rejoice in the blessed hope of Jesus' soon appearance in the clouds to meet His saints with eternal peace. This scripture says Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God ( note Romans 5:2 tells us to rejoice in the blessed hope of Jesus' soon glorious return and appearance as God in the clouds). Friend reading this anywhere, Are you rejoicing in this blessed hope?  Just the thought that Jesus could appear any second where saints leave this sin cursed world should make anyone rejoice and leap for joy. It's so much better to be with Jesus than on this earth in the most expensive mansion with billions of dollars.   

     Alright, let's see some blessings saints receive if they look for the blessed hope of Jesus' soon appearance in the clouds. Take time to say Philippians 3:20-21 pictured above For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (looking for the blessed hope of Jesus' appearance in the clouds). Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able also to subdue all things unto Himself.

     We should all rejoice while we look for the blessed hope when Jesus will soon change our vile bodies to be fashioned like unto His glorious body. When the saints meet Jesus in the clouds during the blessed hope and receive glorious bodies, no one will be blind, deaf, lame, or dumb; The hospitals and funeral homes will no longer exist because there will be no more sickness or death with our Lord Jesus during His 1000 year millenial reign on earth and in the kingdom forevermore. 

     Rejoice and say Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. Also say Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.


     OK, let's see what else occurs when a saint rejoices and looks for the blessed hope. According to 1 John 3:2-3 pictured above if anyone looks for the blessed hope of Jesus' soon return to earth in the clouds to meet and bless His saints, they will want to live a holy pure life on this earth. The scripture says Beloved, now are we the sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when He shall appear (in the clouds) we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is; And every man that hath this hope (the blessed hope) in him, purifieth himself, even as He is pure. Wow, whenever someone rejoices and looks for the blessed hope, they stop sinning and become holy, sanctified, and pure.

     Brother Bob tells all my friends everywhere don't let Him (Jesus) catch you with your work undone. If you live every second rejoicing and looking for the blessed hope that Jesus could return in the clouds the next moment, you'll become holy, sanctified, and pure. Unfortunately, most people today are hobknobbing around with all the sins of the day; buying lottery tickets, shooting dice, playing poker, shacking up, committing adultery, taking drugs, and drinking whiskey. These sinners practice sin constantly with no shame. Saints can sin but they don't practice sin like lost unbelievers in Jesus as God. 1 John 3:6 says Whosoever abideth in Him (Jesus) sinneth not (these are saints who are ashamed when they sin and do not practice sin when they look for the blessed hope Jesus); whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him (these are unbelievers who don't know Jesus is God who constantly practice sin with no shame). 

     The bible warns us not to commit the same sins done by the children of Israel during the days of Moses. Their sins and punishment were written for examples that we should not lust after evil things. 1Corinthians 10:7 tells us Neither let be ye idolaters, as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples; and they are written for our admonition upon whom the ends of the world are come. Friends, heed these examples; remember avoid the punishment that the people received during the days of Moses by looking joyfully for the blessed hope which makes saints holy, sanctified, pure, and blessed with Jesus. 

     Alright, as we all rejoice and look for the blessed hope, you might ask When is the Lord Jesus coming back? Brother Bob says the answer is in a little while. Hebrews 10:36-37 promises For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. for yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

     Jesus is coming back in a little while. I don't know how long a little while is but it won't be long now. You better get ready friends all over this earth; Jesus is coming back soon. Jesus said at 2 Corinthians 6:2 I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee, behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.

A STORY ABOUT A BLESSED 100 YEAR OLD WOMAN

There was a 100 year old lady that always told every preacher
That's the best preaching I ever heard

One Sunday after this woman again told the preacher
That's the best sermon I ever heard
Someone in the congregation yelled 
She says that to everyone
Do you think she's telling the truth?

The preacher replied Yes
My preaching's getting better all the time

     As always it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes on this earth with peace and strength. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz8tlm@yahoo.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

OK ONE MORE AS YOU LOOK AT THE ABOVE PICTURE

     Alright, today we will learn that the Day of Christ is not the Day Of The Lord. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 tells us what will happen on the Day of Christ pictured above. This scripture says Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the Day Of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

     Note that the RSV (Revised Slandered Version) and NIV (Non Inspired Version) perversion translations of the bible substitute the Day of the Lord for the Day of Christ in 2 Thessalonians 2:2. Only the KJV King James bible correctly lists the Day Of Christ at 2 Thessalonians 2:2. This is a big deal. If this scripture said Day of the Lord, saints would have to go through the tribulation. And all the saints will not be here for one second of the tribulation mess. 2 Thessalonians 2:7 tells us only he who now letteth (restrains) will let (means the Holy Ghost in saints holds back and restrains the appearance of the antichrist) until he be taken out of the way (saints getting caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds), And then shall the Wicked be revealed (The antichrist can not be revealed to start the tribulation until the saints are caught up to Jesus and leave this earth). These RSV and NIV translated bibles need to be placed in the trash. Only read the KJV bible which is the most accurate translation of the Word of God in English. 

     OK, let's see what happens on the Day of Christ (not the Day of the Lord) by studying 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3. This scripture tells us three things will happen on the Day of Christ. First there will be a falling away; Second all the saints will be caught up and gathered together unto Jesus in the clouds to be judged at the Bema Seat Judgment (which is not the white throne judgment), and Third the very second the saints are caught up to Jesus in the clouds and leave this earth, the antichrist, the son of perdition who is the man of sin will be revealed on this earth and start the 7 year tribulation as he confirms a treaty with Israel.  

     OK, now let's see why the Day of the Lord is not the Day of Christ. Pictured above we see that 2 Peter 3:10 tells us what will happen on the Day of the Lord. This scripture says But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Also note that 2 Peter 3:8 says But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

     According to 2 Peter 3:8-10 the Day of the Lord spans a period of around a thousand years or more. The Day of the Lord will begin when Jesus comes as a thief in the night as the saints are caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds. But notice also that the Day of the Lord also includes the 7 year tribulation, 1000 year millenial reign of Jesus on this earth, the great white throne judgment, and ends as the heavens pass away where the earth is burned up before Jesus creates a new heaven and new earth for the eternal kingdom.

     You see what an error it is to substitute the Day of the Lord for the Day of Christ at 2 Thessalonians 2:2. If this was so, saints would have to live through the tribulation included in the Day of the Lord. And many bible verses say that saints will not have to live through any second of the tribulation wrath of God. 1 Thessalonians 1:10 tells us And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. Romans 5:9 tells us Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 tells us For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation 3:10 says Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 

     And finally Luke 21:36 says Watch ye therefore and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass (the 7 year tribulation), and to stand before the Son of Man (at the bema seat judgment seat that occurs immediately when the saints are caught up to Jesus who appears in the clouds). This is stated at 2 Timothy 4:1 that says the Lord Jesus will judge the quick and the dead at His appearing (this is the dead in Christ and those that are alive and remain (the quick) who are caught up to be judged at the bema seat judgment and given rewards when Jesus appears in the clouds). Jesus said at Revelation 22:12 And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me (Jesus will give saints rewards when he first appears to them in the clouds where the saints are caught up) to give every man according as his work shall be.

       Friends if anyone gets saved, repents, stops sinning, makes Jesus God of their life, and believes daily that Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again, they will not be on this earth for one second of the tribulation (these saints will be on a honeymoon with Jesus in heaven and will return with Jesus on white horses at the end of the 7 year tribulation to watch Jesus throw the antichrist and false prophet alive in the lake of fire). After this, all the saints will rule and reign with King Jesus in Jerusalem Israel for 1000 years on this earth in blessed peace because the devil will be sealed up in a bottomless pit for 1000 years. After the devil comes out of the bottomless pit, Jesus will cast the devil into the lake of fire, and burn up this earth. Finally, Jesus will create a new heaven and a new earth for the kingdom where all the saints will live forevermore in peace.


     In closing, let me explain how the bema seat judgment differs from the great white throne judgment. The first picture above speaks about the bema seat judgment for all saints who believe Jesus is God where rewards are given for all the good deeds done to win and save souls. 2 Corinthians 5:10 tells us For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

     1 Corinthians 3:13-15 describes what will happen to saints at the bema seat judgment that all saints must appear at immediately after the catching up to Jesus in the clouds. The scripture says Every man's work shall be made manifest, for the day (the Day of Christ) shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire, and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire. 

     You see saints will be rewarded for their good works and the souls they saved on this earth at the bema seat judgment. But remember your good works don't save you. Ephesians 2:8 says For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast. Daniel 12:3 says Jesus will reward saints with stars in their crowns for winning souls to the Lord Jesus. Daniel 12:3 says And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars for ever and ever.

     But, also note that at the bema judgment seat some saints will suffer loss and lose rewards for failing to minister to lost souls. Take heed to the warning at 2 John 2:8 that says Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. I believe saints will cry when they see souls that they failed to minister to cast into the lake of fire at the great white throne judgment. This is stated at Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

     These saints will cry and remember that they failed to tell these lost souls about Jesus. Take heed; a saint that fails to wins souls will suffer loss at the bema seat judgment and see lost souls at the great white throne judgment cast into the lake of fire These saints' tears will not be wiped away from their eyes until after the 1000 year reign of Christ and the great white throne judgment when Jesus sets up the kingdom. Revelation 21:4 speaks about the kingdom saying And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.

     Isaiah 65:17 also says that in the kingdom all bad memories of lost souls and any bad thoughts will be removed; the scripture says For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.  Remember to give your life purpose win souls to the Lord Jesus. Tell people everywhere to get saved, repent, stop sinning, make Jesus God of their lives, and believe daily that Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again so you don't weep for lost sinners cast into the lake of fire at the great white throne judgment.

     In closing, note that the second picture above of the great white throne judgment is not for saints but only for dead unbelievers who rejected Jesus as God. These unbelievers die twice. First they die and go to hell and finally they die the second death at the great white throne judgment and are cast into the lake of fire forevermore. Wow, saints that believe Jesus is God never die. But, unbelievers who reject Jesus as God die twice.

     The great white throne judgment is described at Revelation 20:12-15 and says And I saw the dead (note this is for dead unbelievers in Jesus as God and not for the saved saints), 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. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it ; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them, and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. 

     As always I enjoyed writing this book today. I pray in Jesus name it blesses multitudes on this earth.
