Your Name is Written in Heaven
Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
As a Christian, you don’t have to fear death. Through faith in Christ, you know you will spend eternity with Christ in His new kingdom.
Written in Heaven
The disciples had just returned from a mission trip where they saw many people healed and delivered. As they celebrated what happened, Jesus reminded them that seeing God use them was great, but knowing God has written their names in heaven was the real blessing.
Jesus said the most important thing in this life is knowing where you will spend the next life. Just like the fog coming from your breath on a cold morning, life on this earth only lasts a moment. Compared to eternity, this life is just a vapor.
Your name is written in heaven if you have placed your faith in Christ.
A few years ago, my wife and I checked into a hotel late at night. The couple before us asked the front desk clerk if there were any rooms. The desk clerk answered, “I am sorry. We are all full.” Tammy and I looked at each other, wondering what would happen next. As the couple stepped away, I said, “Hi, my name is Billy Taylor, and I have a confirmed reservation.” The clerk smiled and said, “Yes, Mister Taylor, your room is ready.
You can rejoice today because your reservation in heaven has been confirmed.
Through faith in Christ, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when you close your eyes in death, you will open them in God’s presence in heaven.
You don’t have to fear death because Christ has made a place for you in heaven. We don’t know all the details, but we know it will be in God’s presence. There will be no pain or death, and God will wipe away every tear. You will experience unconditional love, acceptance, and wholeness like never before.
You can celebrate all the beautiful blessings God has poured out on you. You can be thankful for your friends, family, and a thousand other things, but knowing your name is written in heaven is the greatest blessing. The Holy Spirit has confirmed your reservation. When you finally close your eyes in death, you will open them in heaven for all eternity.
Look at that promise once again.
Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven. – Luke 10:20
Make these confessions.
- God has written my name in heaven.
- I will spend eternity in the presence of God.
- Nothing can separate me from my eternal home.
- I do not fear death because I know where I will spend eternity.
In Jesus’ name,
Knowing your name is written in heaven is the greatest blessing of all. You don’t fear death because you know you will spend eternity with God celebrating the joys of heaven.
