OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS AND CHILDREN FRIDAY 6TH JULY 2018: DELISTED
MEMORISE: And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Exodus 32:33
Please read: Revelation 20:11-15
The story of Mordecai is an interesting one with several lessons for us today. The first thing that comes to mind is that every organized kingdom keeps records. Just as king Ahasuerus kept records of events, so does the Kings of kings, heaven has lots of books out of
which are registered for human beings.
Revelations 20:11-15 tells of two sets of books; the book of life and the book of death. Wherever your name falls is where your deeds will be recorded.
Everyone who is born again and lives right until the time of death or the Second Coming can be assured that his or her name is in the book of life. It takes your daily righteous living to sustain your life there.
Hence, you have to do everything in your power to retain your name in this glorious book. Open Heaven 7 July 2018
Father, please help me to keep my name in the book of life. Let your grace abound unto me.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. I am Thine 0 Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
