Make Jesus King of the Earth. And “Add Your Name” to the Book of Life.

We call on every person to accept the Lordship of Jesus.    We urge every king and ruler to bow the knee.     We call on every government to announce publicly that Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords.   Let’s make Jesus King!  
 
Jesus taught that his message and blueprint for the coming kingdom must be made known throughout the “whole world,” Matthew 24:14.   He said that His Gospel “must first be published among all nations… and then shall (we) see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.” Mark 13:10, Mar 13:26.
 
Today, we declare our support for Jesus as King.    We identify ourselves with Jesus and his Kingdom message.  We publish the blueprint that Jesus proclaimed so that we might hasten his coming.   And we say, “I add my name in support of Jesus, trusting that he will add his name in support of me.”
 
“The Book of Revelation” mentions a very special book known as The Book of Life.”   We want our names written into this book because those whose names are entered into this book will be granted access to the heavenly city of God.  John writes, “I… saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband… And there shall in no wise enter into it any… that defileth… but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. Revelation 21:2-27.
 
“The Book of Life” is a book that Jesus authored. It is like a guest list to a wedding feast, and like a prologue to the Gospel of the Kingdom.   In the “Book of Revelation” this little book seems to be also referred to as the little scroll” and the testimony of Jesus and just maybe, it is opening,” Revelation 5:1, 10:1-2.
 
This is not fiction.   This is a real book that only Jesus can open and unveil, perhaps because only Jesus could open to us the true meaning of his own life and teachings, Revelation 5:4, 9.   It is called the Book of Life because it is the book that promises life.  It begins with the promise of life straight from the mouth of Jesus, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."  
 
This end-time book was discovered just before Israel became a nation.  As a scroll, it is just a short listing of the sayings of Jesus. Today this little book is more commonly known as “The Gospel of Thomas,” but really Jesus was the true author, and Thomas was just the scribe.  
 
This Gospel of Jesus is the Gospel of the Kingdom.    John writes that nothing is to be added to “The Book of Life,” except OUR NAMES, Revelation 22:19.  
 
How is our name written into this book of life?   Let me show you where Thomas literally wrote his name into “The Book of Life.”  He introduces The Gospel of Christ with this prologue, “These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down. And he said, ‘Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.’  ” 
 
Would you like to see your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life?  It is not hard.  Identify yourself with Jesus and his words just like Thomas did.   Believe and obey.   Understand and follow.  Ultimately God decides when and who makes it into His kingdom, but identifying with Jesus might be a first step.     Let’s add our name to his book, and join His cause.
 
Jesus promised that, “Whosoever… shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven,”  Matthew 10:32.   But “whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words… of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Mark 8:38.   Like Paul,  may we be able to say, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation,” Romans 1:16.   
 
Let’s each do our part, and fill our place.   And may we one day discover that our names truly were written into the book of life.  And perhaps like the apostle Thomas, today, let’s literally write our names into “The Book of Life.” 
    
Here is the challenge.   Add your name.   And then share His blueprint and His message in anyway He leads you.    It is so simple.  
  
EXCERPTS FROM THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS AND THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM THAT MUST BE PUBLISHED TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
 
   “These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.”       
    
    (1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."
    (2) Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."
    (3) Jesus said, "If those who lead you say to you, 'See, THE  KINGDOM is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, THE  KINGDOM is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."
    (22) Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, "These infants being suckled are like those who enter THE  KINGDOM."
    They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter THE  KINGDOM?"
    Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter THE  KINGDOM."
     (27) <Jesus said,> "If you do not fast as regards the world, you will not find THE  KINGDOM. If you do not observe the Sabbath as a Sabbath, you will not see the father."
     (46) Jesus said, "Among those born of women, from Adam until John the Baptist, there is no one so superior to John the Baptist that his eyes should not be lowered (before him). Yet I have said, whichever one of you comes to be a child will be acquainted with THE  KINGDOM and will become superior to John."
    (49) Jesus said, "Blessed are the solitary and elect, for you will find THE  KINGDOM. For you are from it, and to it you will return."
    (51) His disciples said to him, "When will the repose of the dead come about, and when will the new world come?"
    He said to them, "What you look forward to has already come, but you do not recognize it."
    (54) Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor, for yours is THE  KINGDOM of heaven."
    (55) Jesus said, "Whoever does not hate his father and his mother cannot become a disciple to me. And whoever does not hate his brothers and sisters and take up his cross in my way will not be worthy of me."
    (57) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM of the father is like a man who had good seed. His enemy came by night and sowed weeds among the good seed. The man did not allow them to pull up the weeds; he said to them, 'I am afraid that you will go intending to pull up the weeds and pull up the wheat along with them.' For on the day of the harvest the weeds will be plainly visible, and they will be pulled up and burned."
    (76) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM of the father is like a merchant who had a consignment of merchandise and who discovered a pearl. That merchant was shrewd. He sold the merchandise and bought the pearl alone for himself. You too, seek his unfailing and enduring treasure where no moth comes near to devour and no worm destroys."
   (82) Jesus said, "He who is near me is near the fire, and he who is far from me is far from THE  KINGDOM."
   (96) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM of the father is like a certain woman. She took a little leaven, concealed it in some dough, and made it into large loaves. Let him who has ears hear."
   (97) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM of the father is like a certain woman who was carrying a jar full of meal. While she was walking on the road, still some distance from home, the handle of the jar broke and the meal emptied out behind her on the road. She did not realize it; she had noticed no accident. When she reached her house, she set the jar down and found it empty."
    (98) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM of the father is like a certain man who wanted to kill a powerful man. In his own house he drew his sword and stuck it into the wall in order to find out whether his hand could carry through. Then he slew the powerful man."
    (99) The disciples said to him, "Your brothers and your mother are standing outside."
    He said to them, "Those here who do the will of my father are my brothers and my mother. It is they who will enter THE  KINGDOM of my father."
    (100) They showed Jesus a gold coin and said to him, "Caesar's men demand taxes from us."
    He said to them, "Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, give God what belongs to God, and give me what is mine."
    (107) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM is like a shepherd who had a hundred sheep. One of them, the largest, went astray. He left the ninety-nine sheep and looked for that one until he found it. When he had gone to such trouble, he said to the sheep, 'I care for you more than the ninety-nine.'"
    (108) Jesus said, "He who will drink from my mouth will become like me. I myself shall become he, and the things that are hidden will be revealed to him."
    (109) Jesus said, "THE  KINGDOM is like a man who had a hidden treasure in his field without knowing it. And after he died, he left it to his son. The son did not know (about the treasure). He inherited the field and sold it. And the one who bought it went plowing and found the treasure. He began to lend money at interest to whomever he wished."
    (113) His disciples said to him, "When will THE  KINGDOM come?"
    <Jesus said,> "It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, THE  KINGDOM of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it."
    (114) Simon Peter said to him, "Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life."
    Jesus said, "I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter THE  KINGDOM of heaven."

In the New Testament writings this little scroll was repeatedly referred to as “The Gospel of Christ.”  Jesus really is the author and finisher of our faith, Hebrews 12:2.  Eventually the New Testament writings will be seen to be an expansive commentary on this Testimony of Jesus. With such insight, the many canonical references to "The Doctrine of Christ", "His Sayings", "The Preaching of Jesus Christ", "The Gospel of God", "The Word of God", "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", "The Everlasting Gospel", and even just "The Gospel" could all reasonably be direct references, and sometimes even veiled references to "The Gospel of Jesus"         For more information visit        takethescroll.blogspot.com
