Where Is Your Name Written? (Luke 10:17-20)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, December 26, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service

Now in I this scripture, the 70 men were given a certain power to do these things. None since then have been given this power. Now there are a certain faith that seems to think they can do these things but the doctrine always wins, they die. We are warned not to find our peace in things that are carnal, the healing, the miracles or even the good things that might come our way. It rains on the just just the same as the unjust.

There should be an excitement when it comes to attending the house of God. One never knows what God has in store.

There are four things that we should not have faith in.
Super natural powers is the first one. Yes they are powerful and miraculous but they are but temporal.
Baptism is also something that one should not have our full joy in. Baptism can not save a person but it's only a visual representation of being changed, saved.
Church membership is not something that should not be rejoiced as being saved. A lot of folks want to join the church but offer nothing to the believers.
Works is one thing that a lot of people but their stock in that will seemingly gain them access to Heaven. Gods Word is plain when it states that no one is good and your good works are as filthy rags. Many will claim they did things in Jesus name but they don't know Him.

What to rejoice about.
Is YOUR name written in the Lambs book of life? Being born again is a personal thing. A man written name will not get you into Heaven.
A church membership book will burn up in the end. Therefore it's not of any importance.
If your name is written in Heaven then someone up there had to write it and that person is God.
Whatever is of God and whatever is written of God is forever.

Luke 10:17-20

17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (KJV)
