“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”(Revelation 21:27). These stipulations could be talking about all of us, since we are all sinners, and “God be true and every man a liar.” ( Romans 3:4). Once you are saved however your sins are removed by Jesus Christ and faith in his Blood, “but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”(1John 1:7). “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” (Psalm 103:12). Only the saved will be able to enter in through the gates, into the Heavenly City. See our class on Revelation Chapters 21& 22. This verse seems to indicate that The Lamb’s Book Of Life contains the names of all the saved. So if this is the case there is “The Book Of Life” in which a persons name can be blotted out, and there is “The Lamb’s Book Of Life” in which your name can not be blotted out. The people that teach the false doctrine that says you can loose your salvation use these verses about being judged by your works, to back up their false teaching of works to get saved and to keep yourself saved. This is why you need to study the scriptures for yourself, and make sure you have a good understanding of what God’s Word says. You do have to work for your rewards, but not for your salvation, and to keep yourself saved. See our classes on “Salvation”.
“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”(Revelation 17:8).See our class on Revelation Chapter 17 for more detail on this verse. This verse shows us that The Book Of Life was started at the beginning of Creation. Those that follow the anti-christ and the devil which are one and the same, will have their names blotted out of The Book Of Life, but not of The Lamb’s Book Of Life if they were saved, because you can not loose your Salvation. Apparently they didn’t get saved in the first place if their name is blotted out of The Book Of Life. However they can still be saved even after spending sometime in the Lake Of Fire. Some people are so rebellious against God, that this is what it will take for them to repent and turn to Jesus Christ. This is the doctrine of Universal Reconciliation, which states that God will not be happy and satisfied until everyone comes to know him through his Son Jesus Christ, and his Creation is restored to the way he wants it to be.This is what we believe and teach. So, The Book Of Life is a Book of everyone’s life and what they did with it. Do you think there is a Lamb’s Book Of Life, and a Book Of Life, or do you think they are one in the same? If they are one in the same, the names of the saved can not be blotted out. It must be an extremely large book, or perhaps some how in the spirit, it holds all this information. Do you think it is God’s big tablet? We will someday find out. Make sure your name is written in there permanently by asking Jesus Christ into your heart.
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
