The Final Census

 

The population of planet is estimated to be between six and seven billion people give or take a hundred million.  The exact number can never be known for obvious reasons.  How many died in the last minute and how many were born in the last minute?  Who took the census in the Amazon jungle, or in the Congo.  Everything on earth is constantly fluctuating, including the human race, making the taking of an exact earth census impossible.

The kingdom census is different because it is extremely accurate down to the last baby born.  The kingdom census is contained in a single book, called the book of life.  When the kingdom census is taken, “you will see the dead, small and great, stand before My Father; and the books will be opened: and another book will open, which is the census book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works,”  Revelation 20:12.  The census book is so detailed it not only contains your name but your life story, even to handing someone a glass of water!  Mark 9:41.

Some will try to sneak across the border into My kingdom but will be recognized by Me immediately.  Let Me give you an example: My servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.  [11] And when I came in to see the guests, I saw there a man which did not have on a wedding garment:  [12] I said to him, Friend, how did you get in here without wearing a wedding garment?  And he was speechless. [13] Then I ordered the servants, to Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  [14] For many are called, but few are chosen,” Matthew 22:10-14.  The man had misjudged My grace on earth.  He was taught that My grace overlooked his sin and repentance and new birth were not necessary.

He made the deadly mistake of separating My grace from My holiness.  He thought My grace replaced My holiness.  He did not know they are married to each other.  That day on the cross when I said, It is finished, Grace and holiness met together; and at that moment righteousness and peace have kissed each other, Psalm 85:10.  Grace would make a way for you and give you time to repent, then Holiness would be the judge of whether you took advantage of graces offer!  Many leaders will say: “Lord, Lord under grace we prophesied in your name!  And in your name have cast out devils!  And in your name done many wonderful works!  [23] And then My holiness will profess unto them, I never knew you: because you never repented of your sin, depart from Me, you that work iniquity,”  Matthew 7:22-23.

Let’s get down to you reading this right now, is your name in the kingdom census book of life or not?  Don’t say I prayed the sinners prayer, that’s not valid no matter what you were told!  Do you believe in your heart is the question?  Romans 10:9-10 and are your on fire, red hot for Me and My kingdom or are you lukewarm.  If, when I return, you are are on fire, passionately in love with Me and My Fathers presence, your name will be there.  If your lukewarm, it will have been there, but it will be blotted out, which means you changed your citizenship and are a citizen of the kingdom of darkness!  Revelation 3:5.

You leaders and pastors need to keep checking your citizenship papers, because many of you will be shocked because you assumed your position would guarantee your name in the census book, but yours has been blotted out, for becoming lukewarm and taking My glory!  For teaching what people want to hear, instead of what I told you to teach!  For fleecing the sheep, instead of feeding them!  No one claiming to be a believer, should ever just assume, because you have not reached the end yet, stay red hot in love with Me everyday, taking one day at a time, that’s the only way you will endure to the end, and, “he that shall endure unto the end, the same will be counted in the kingdom census and be saved,”  Matthew 24:13.

The Final Census — 2 Comments

  1. In the Old Testament they ASKED for the judgements of God. This is Gods way. We are to fall on the Rock and be broken or the Rock shall surely fall on us and…. May we trust Him to make us like Him. Joy then is surely in whatever He brings or whatever He allows.

  2. Precious Brother,
    My heart almost stop when I read this.
    And I am at the same time thankful that
    the fear of the Lord is alive and at work in me,
    because I need it for to keep focus at Him and not at the world.
