NAKED AND AFRAID

Naked and afraid,  that is how most people will stand before Jesus when they die. They will realize that it is not a reality show. It is the end. They will be facing eternity in hell.
They will be stripped of all their earthly comforts and securities. Like they came into the world, they will go out, naked. All that will matter is their deeds. We read in Revelation 20:11-15.
“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. 12And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Many Christian believers will be terribly disappointed when Jesus denies them and says to them:”Go away I never knew you.” They thought that they were saved because they believed in Jesus,  but they never obeyed nor followed Him.  They kept on living in sin. They never repented, neither were baptized in water for the washing off of their sins. They believed that they were saved by grace and did not need to change their ways. They disregarded the words of Jesus, His commandments. Many of them were religious, working for the church, doing charities, evangelizing, but they had no relationship with Jesus.  They acted on their own initiative and followed after people.  They never heard from Jesus. 
Jesus said:“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
We will stand before Jesus and be judged by our DEEDS. Many will be naked, afraid and ashamed. The saints, those who followed and obeyed Jesus,  will not be naked. We read in Revelation 19:8 of the bride of Christ: “It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
Will we be naked and afraid on that day, or will we be clothed in righteousness and be worthy to enter heaven? 
May Jesus bless you.
