“For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away,” 1 Peter 1:24.
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works,” Revelation 20:11-13.
“What has been written down has been written down for those who would want to know the truth.
The word has endured for generations. It has stood the test of time. And yet the words of man pass away as the newly mowed grass.
What man has ever had the name of greatness ascribed to him after his death?
I tell you that kings and queens endure for but a season, and then they go to the grave.
What man among the millions has ever lived beyond the grave?
The wind blows over the grave in which they were buried, and then they become as the dust itself.
And yet we honor those who have gone before us. We honor such men and women and speak of the great deeds they have wrought.
They are written down in your books and in the annals of history. But whatever sign of greatness that they had, came from my hand alone.
I exalt a man and yet I bring another one down. I AM in control of the days that he lives out.
I AM the One who has breathed life in him. And yet I’ve called upon him to honor Me.
But many pretend to honor Me with just their lips. These are those who will not receive a reward for their efforts.
Everyone must give an account before the great throne of judgment. Your entire lives will be held up in front of you.
And then you will know whether or not your name is written down in the Lamb’s book of life.
So in the end, that is the only book that will matter.”
