… at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book —will be delivered.
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” …. Daniel 12:1-4
How do you know your name is in God’s book of eternal life? How do you comfort yourself that your soul is in a right standing with God?
You will be a possessor of eternal life. You know God personally as your Father and you will know that your sins are forgiven by Jesus the Saviour. Even as you live each day of your life, you will be aware of the Holy Spirit living with in your person and giving you the power to overcome all obstacles. You can rest secure because the witness of the Spirit within give peace of mind and heart. The love of God for people is manifest in your life and an unstoppable joy overtakes your ills and failures. This is the identity of a Christian.
God’s people will be totally delivered.
There are those who will shine like stars in the everlasting kingdom. The wise who have constantly sought His face and guidance as they have witnessed and spoken up for the Lord Jesus, will shine brightly in the coming eternal epoch.
However, there is more. Even in this sin-sick planet and deteriorating universe, those who love God and are filled with the Spirit, will be very different from the culture around them. The presence of God within them and the holiness of their life will shine out. It will cause upset to many, jealousies and gossip will hurt them badly, but Christ is able to strengthen them. The comfort of knowing their names are safe in His great name, is the place of life and peace.
Is you name in that book?
Are you shining in this world?
Or are you seeking futile knowledge from earthly places.
