“Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15.
“We are now living in the great day of atonement. In the typical service, while the high priest was making the atonement for Israel, all were required to afflict their souls by repentance of sin and humiliation before the Lord, lest they be cut off from among the people. In like manner, all who would have their names retained in the book of life should now, in the few remaining days of their probation, afflict their souls before God by sorrow for sin and true repentance. There must be deep, faithful searching of heart. The light, frivolous spirit indulged by so many professed Christians must be put away. There is earnest warfare before all who would subdue the evil tendencies that strive for the mastery. The work of preparation is an individual work. We are not saved in groups. The purity and devotion of one will not offset the want of these qualities in another. Though all nations are to pass in judgment before God, yet He will examine the case of each individual with as close and searching scrutiny as if there were not another being upon the earth. Everyone must be tested and found without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.” –The Great Controversy, p. 489.
Questions to think about:
Do I honestly ask my Saviour to search my mind and heart to find what has still not been completed for my preparation for heaven?
Will Christ examine the case of each individual with such a close and searching scrutiny as if there were not another being upon the earth?
Does everyone has to be tested and found without spot or wrinkle or any such thing?
