The title of this should be, The Book of You, but since there is already a book by that name I did not want to be accused of plagiarism so just feel free to insert your name in the appropriate place. The Book of You is a fictional psycho thriller about a stalker. But the Book of (insert your name here) really is a book that is all about you. That is because it is a book that you are writing every day of your life. It is a book about the good, the bad, and the ugly of your life. It is a book that God is reading and will be read back to you when your final chapter is finished here on earth. It has a forward in the beginning that says, “I knew you before you were formed in the womb”.
Jeremiah 1:5 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
It has an ending that says one of two things. “Well done good and faithful servant”.
Matthew 25:31-46 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
Or, “Depart from me into everlasting darkness”.
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
And in between those are all of the pages of your life, the pages of all the good, the bad, and the ugly. And of every deed done in public and in private! There is nothing that will be hidden in that book. It will all be read back to you when the time comes.
There are literally billions of copies of this book that have been written and that are still being written. But each copy is an original. Each copy is unique. That is because it truly is a book about every aspect of your life. A book that is about every second of your life! Not about your neighbors life. Not about your brothers or your sisters life’s but your life. You are the main character in this book. The individual that is responsible for the one deed that you did or did not do before your life ended. Most people do not seem to grasp the fact that although the bible is all about individual accountability, it is also about individual freedom. The freedom to do what is right before God. Not what is right before man! Mankind has put in place a system of worldly laws that it thinks supersedes Gods laws. And mankind seeks to hold men accountable for violating its laws. They have pushed Gods laws aside thinking that their laws are more important, forgetting the most important Commandment. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul. Also forgetting the second most important Commandment! Love you neighbor as yourself. The world has become a selfish place. And those two commandments mean nothing to those who have set themselves up to be the gods of their own lives. They have also tried to set themselves up to play the role of God in other’s lives. If that is the case then The Book of (insert your name here) will be full of pages that highlight that point.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
There will be no detail left out of that book. And as that book is read back to you it will become very evident what the closing statement will be at the end of that book.
There is another book that is kept in heaven. It is called The Book of Life. There are many in this world today who think that their name is written in that book. There are many who claim they are doing the work of God. But the work of God does not include the harming of little children. Both the unborn and the born!
Titus 1:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
Matthew 18:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
As I mentioned earlier, the Book of ( insert your name here) will have written in it the one thing that you did or did not do that will determine where you spend eternity. The bible tells us that those who call upon the name of Jesus will be saved. There is another thing that many people do not understand. And that is called, Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Simply put, this is not something where you tell God where to go in a moment of anger. But it is the final rejection of God’s will in your life. It is that very moment when you have rejected Gods call for you to give your life to his Son for the last time. If you take the final breath of your life without doing so that is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. That will be there in The Book of (insert your name here). And the very last words you will hear are, depart from me into everlasting darkness.
That will be the very end of your book. And that will be the very end of your life. Let me make something very clear here. It does not matter how much money you have or do not have. It does not matter what your status in life is. It only matters if you know one person. And that person is Jesus Christ. And what I mean by knowing him is, have you given your life to him. There is no other name in heaven or on earth by which any of us can be saved. If you have, then the Book of ( insert your name here) will continue to be written for eternity. If you have not, then it ends when you draw your last breath without doing so and you hear those horrible words, depart from me.
