Naked and afraid,  that is how
most people will stand before Jesus when they die. They will realize
that it is not a reality show. It is the end. They will be facing
eternity in hell.
They will be stripped of all their earthly
comforts and securities. Like they came into the world, they will go
out, naked. All that will matter is their deeds. We read in
Revelation 20:11-15.
"Then I saw a great white throne and Him
who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and
no place was found for them. 12And 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. 13And 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. 14Then death and Hades
were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake
of fire. 15And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book
of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."

Christian believers will be terribly disappointed when Jesus denies
them and says to them:"Go away I never knew you." They
thought that they were saved because they believed in Jesus,
but they never obeyed nor followed Him.  They kept on living in
sin. They never repented, neither were baptized in water for the
washing off of their sins. They believed that they were saved by
grace and did not need to change their ways. They disregarded the
words of Jesus, His commandments. Many of them were religious,
working for the church, doing charities, evangelizing, but they had
no relationship with Jesus.  They acted on their own initiative
and followed after people.  They never heard from Jesus.
said:“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the
kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in
heaven will enter.22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord,
Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out
demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23“And then I
will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO
We will stand before Jesus and be judged
by our DEEDS. Many will be naked, afraid and ashamed. The saints,
those who followed and obeyed Jesus,  will not be naked. We read
in Revelation 19:8 of the bride of Christ: "It was given to her
to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen
is the righteous acts of the saints."
Will we be naked and
afraid on that day, or will we be clothed in righteousness and be
worthy to enter heaven?
May Jesus bless you.
