JESUS WILL CONFESS YOUR NAME
He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. (WEB)
On that great and glorious day, our elder brother Jesus Christ will confess the name of every person that has put their trust in Him... to all of heaven. Think about that for a moment. What will you feel like? Imagine the entire heavenly host watching as Jesus calls out your name to Father God.
I have absolutely no idea what that might look like, but it is kind of fun to close my eyes and try to picture it. Will Jesus hold me by the hand and lead me to Father's throne and say something like... "Father, I would like to present your beloved son, Barry to you"?
However it happens, what will heaven's response be to such a display of public affection? Will all the angels erupt in applause? Will we simply run into our Father's arms so that He can wipe all our tears away? I really don't have a clue as to what that might look like.
All I can say is that I can't wait to see how my brother will confess my name to our heavenly Father. May we all be filled with hope and wonder as we look forward to that great and glorious day.
Now to him who is able to keep them from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory in great joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. (WEB)
