This world is not made to last! It will come to an end. Daniel closes out his prophetic book with a glimpse of what will happen at the end of time. When time ends, those who are inscribed in the Book will be rescued.
Many people find it hard to believe that our deeds are being recorded but the Bible is clear that not just our actions but even our idle words will be accounted for. This should cause all of us to examine ourselves daily to ensure that we are really living our lives based on God’s standards and not by the world’s standards.
If we live by the world’s standards, we will lose the reward that God has promised us. If we live by God’s standards, we will enjoy great rewards in heaven. As Believers, we must live for an eternal purpose. When will the end come? We will not know until it comes but when it comes, there are no “do-overs”.
Let’s live a meaningful life today so that when the end comes we can boldly enter eternity knowing we fulfilled our purpose.
