Open book(s)

Recently I learned that a young man had applied to work for the same company that I work for. In fact his dad worked here a few years ago. His dad was such a great worker and well respected that this young fella was practically guaranteed to get the job.
Let me pause here and say the old saying “be sure your sins will fund you out”. As I said this guy should have been given a job and the chance to prove himself capable of handling it. He wasn’t. We were hiring to be sure but he has some issues. It seems that what the job experts are saying is true. Potential employers really do check a potential employee’s social network pages.  As it turns out this guy had as it was told to me “exploded” on some issue in his social network page. I do not know the details nor do I care to. Whatever it was raised too many red flags and for the safety of the job environment the decision was made to not higher him. His past cost him a job.
Over in the book of Revelation 20:12 we read of some other books that are one day going to be opened and judgment on the individual is going to come from what is found there as well.
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were open: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in those books, according to their works.”
Every sin one ever commits is written down, every opportunity to be saved but is rejected is written down, every sinful thought is written down, every word ever said is written down whether good or bad, and every action taken or not done is written down, and I believe everything posted on social network pages will also be there. The only way to escape that judgment is to have your name written in the book of life.
Those who stand at the Great White Throne of Judgment will be able to look in the book of Life so that they can see their name is not there but it will be found in one of those other books which is a very bad thing. For those who stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ they will find their name written in the book of Life.
