Man, that’s a lot of boats in stock! And to think that for each vessel the Boat Dealership has to keep record of things like: Date Acquired; Cost to acquire; Features; Suggested Retail Price etc.
The Company software must track it all!

Ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, mankind has been building an immense inventory of sins!

But God the Son, the Final Judge, has successfully been keeping track; every single sin of every single person who dies without Jesus Christ as Saviour will face fair & just punishment in a real Hell.

Revelation 20:12 –
“And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead  were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.”

And next, Revelation 20:13 –
“… and the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.”

Christ the Judge will have books which have recorded all of the sins of all of the persons who are not redeemed;  and each of these lost persons will appear before Christ the Judge for sentencing.

Not that Jesus will need the books to know anything; He is omniscient … rather, the books will have the records available for any individuals who have the audacity to argue the sentence which they will receive from Christ.

The twice repeated phrase … “according to their deeds” clearly reveals that there will be degrees of punishment in Hell! Hell is all bad but it will be worse for some than for others!

Of course this described future judgment is not for any born-again believer in Jesus Christ.

All of our sins have been forgiven and forgotten because of the Lord Jesus’ blood sacrifice.

But none of us should hoard  Christ’s offered forgiveness for ourselves; instead we should tell as many lost persons as possible that their particular inventoried stock pile of sins can be eliminated!
