    JESUS is the way, the truth,

    The last verse of Mt.25:46 says "but the righteous into life eternal". Sin is all unrighteousness and a little leaven leavens the whole lump, even if we keep the whole law but offend in one, we are guilty of all. So the only way to be righteous is to STOP sinning. Doesn't the Bible say to come to our senses as we ought and cease from sin? A disciple I know you know the Truth, and I thank the Lord!

    --RIGHTEOUSNESS--PROVERBS 8:8 ALL THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH ARE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS THERE IS NOTHING FROWARD OR PERVERSE IN THEM -- PSALM 119:138 THY TESTIMONIES THAT THOU HAST COMMANDED ARE RIGHTEOUS AND VERY FAITHFUL-- ROMANS 10:3 FOR THEY BEING IGNORANT OF GODS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GOING ABOUT TO ESTABLISH THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS HAVE NOT SUBMITTED THEMSELVES UNTO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD

    Hi Randy; Thanks for the nice note! To the question of everyone possibly being in the Book of Life to begin with I don't know. It does say that there's an evil seed who go astray from the womb speaking lies; and some like Esau, the LORD hates. The fact that He sows in all kinds of hearts but only a smaller part respond worthily, also makes me doubt that possibility. Mt. 25:31-46 is important.
  • Randy
    A Disciple: Could be that everyone's name is in the Book of Life, but the secret is to not be blotted out. The way the world is going, I do believe that only a Remnant will be saved. There must still be 10 righteous, but hard to tell watching the news! Read some of your past entries and sure is good to know you are teacher of Righteousness! Holy to the LORD! Thanks for Lord's words on my family!
  • A disciple
    Randy; Thank you for your friendly reply: Grace and Peace to you also! Although all have sinned, and God punishes the wicked doers; yet has He spoken of the day when all ages and peoples shall be restored to their former estate. The names of those in the Lamb's Book of Life must be a multitude that no man can number! It is what Jesus prayed: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."
