BUT THE COURT SHALL BE SEATED…” (Dan.7:26) Daniel “watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated…thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.  The court was seated, and the books were opened” (Dan.7:9-10). Thus was presented to the prophet’s vision the great and solemn day when the characters and lives of every individual should pass in review before the Judge of all the earth.

It says, “the books were opened”. The prophet John explains further: “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” (Rev.20:12). The books of record in heaven, in which the names (Luke 10:20) and the deeds (Matthew 12:36-37) of men are registered, are to determine the decision of the judgment.  All secret purposes and motives appear in the unerring register, for God will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will “reveal the counsels of the hearts” (1 Corinthians 4:5). And He “will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17). Christ begins the investigation with those who first lived upon the earth.  Then the cases of each successive generation come into review, and He closes with the judgment of the living.  Every name will be mentioned, every case closely investigated.  Names will be accepted, names rejected.  The law of God is standard by which the characters and the lives of men will be tested in the judgment.  The Bible declares: “So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law (the Ten Commandments-Exodus 20:3-17) of liberty” (James 2:12).

The Lord declares: “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book” (Exodus 32:33). All who truly repented of sin (Proverbs 28:13) and by faith claimed the blood of Christ as their atoning sacrifice (Acts 16:30-31) have had pardon entered against their names in the books of heaven.  Since they have become partakers of the righteousness of Christ (1 John 2:29) and their characters are found to be in harmony with the law of God, their sins will be blotted out and they will be accounted worthy of eternal life.  The Lord declares by the prophet IsaiahI, even I, am He who blots out you transgressions for Mine own sake; and I will not remember your sins. “(Isaiah 43:25).  Such will take part in the resurrection of the just, because, scripture says clearly: “And come forth –those who have done good, to the resurrection of life…” (John 5:29; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-16). Jesus declared through the prophet John: He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels” (Rev. 3:5). This intercession of Christ for man before the throne of his Father in heaven (Hebrew 8:1) is a essential to the plan of salvation as was His death upon the cross ( Hebrew 9:24).
