[QTVOTD] Hope and rest are at the feet of Jesus…

“Then I saw a great white throne and the One Who was seated upon it, from Whose presence and from the sight of Whose face earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.  I [also] saw the dead, great and small; they stood before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life. And the dead were judged (sentenced) by what they had done in accordance with what was recorded in the books.” Revelation 20:11-12 ->me: This vision of the throne is awesome and scary at the same time.  My mind goes to the Lincoln Memorial in DC, that really big marble chair with Lincoln sitting in it.  The countenance and demeanor of God’s face cause the sky and earth to fly away.  Every person who had ever lived now stand before the throne with their life run through and played back (recorded in books) for evidence in sentencing.  Then there is this beautiful book, The Book of Life.  Every name in that book has sentence that has already been carried out…by Jesus.  I believe the sequence of events here is what will happen -> first, everything (actions, thoughts, things done in secret, everything) will be played out and reviewed.  Then after that the Book of Life is opened and if your name is found, there will be a voice that says “Redeemed!”.  Redeemed has become the tag I put after my name on Twitter (@benbobenbo) because it signifies the hope and rest I lay at the feet of Jesus; the one who wrote my name in that book in His own blood.
