HAVE YOU BEEN DULY REGISTERED?
- Dearly Beloved,HAVE YOU BEEN DULY REGISTERED?“If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:15 NIV).“Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life” (Revelation 21:27 NIV).For three weeks recently, eligible voters in Nigeria went out to register for the oncoming general elections in the country. Most of them had difficulties to do so as there were initial logistic problems. One funny aspect of the difficulties was the inability of the direct data capture (DCC) machines to recognize the fingers of some of the would-be electorates. This made the authorities of the electoral body of the nation to emphasize it that for one to be duly registered, all the ten fingers of one’s hands must be recognized and captured by the machine. This has to be done and one has to get a voter’s card. The registration exercise has come and gone. To be able to vote later in the year in Nigeria, the question that one would ask is, “Have you been duly registered?” Undoubtedly, anyone who is not duly registered cannot find his/her name on the voters’ register and such a person will not be able to vote or be voted for.There is another register that is above all registers on earth and even in heaven. This unique register is called the Book of Life. This is a heavenly book in which the names of the righteous that have been redeemed or saved are written. The redemption or salvation referred to here is the one through Jesus Christ (John 1:12; 14:6; Acts 4:10-12). Only people that are duly registered in this book will be allowed to enter heaven, and anyone whose name is not in the book will be eternally separated from God. There is no difficulty whatsoever in registering one’s name in this unique heavenly register. The Bible says, “If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from death, you will be saved. For it is by our faith that we are put right with God; it is by our confession that we are saved” (Romans 10:9-10 TEV).The ultimate questions are: is your name been written in the Book of Life? Have you been duly registered in that special register? Genuinely believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be duly registered in the Book of Life (see Acts 16:31).In His serviceBayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will
have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted
in my body, whether by life or by death. FOR TO ME, TO LIVE IS CHRIST
AND TO DIE IS GAIN (Philippians 1:20-21, NIV).
