We're going to look at some verses on the Book of Life, the Lamb's book of Life and what some other books that are mentioned in the bible are referring to and why. The first book mentioned in the bible is in Exodus 32:32. This book evidently has names in it and Moses knew about it. Look at: Exodus 32:32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
Notice: God had A BOOK and evidently some of the names could be blotted out of it according to
Mal 3:16 Then they
that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened,
and heard it, and a
book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
Psalms 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
Psalms 109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
Psalms 109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
Psalms 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalms 87:6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.
*NOTE* THIS IS THE BOOK THAT MOSES SPOKE OF IN EX.32:32 AND THE ONE IN MAL. 3:16. IT IS PROBABLY A BOOK THAT HAS THE NAMES OF ISRAELITES WRITTEN IN IT FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. BUT THESE CAN BE BLOTTED OUT IF THEY REJECT THEIR MESSIAH.
*NOTE* THERE IS A BOOK OF THE LAW AND A BOOK OF NAMES. COULD BE A BOOK OR BOOKS FOR EACH DISPENSATION.
Jer 17:1 The sin
of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond:
it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your
*NOTE*COULD BE SPIRITUAL OR LITERAL BOOK OF THEIR SINS.
LK. 10:20 Notwithstanding
in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather
rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Phil 4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
*NOTE* IN THIS BOOK OF LIFE NAMES ARE ENTERED WHEN YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AND CAN'T BE BLOTTED OUT. THESE HAVE ALREADY "OVERCOME" (SEE 1 JN.4:4, 5:4) BECAUSE WE ARE NOT UNDER A FAITH AND WORKS DISPENSATION AS WITH THE NEXT VERSES.
Rev 3:5 He that
overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I
will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess
his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Rev 13:7,8 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him
over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev 17:8 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.
*NOTE* THESE VERSES SHOW THAT IN THE TRIBULATION, PEOPLE WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST, (SEE REV. 12:17;14:12) HAVE THEIR NAMES WRITTEN IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE. AS IN THE O.T. IF THEY DON'T ENDURE TO THE END (MT. 24:13) IT WILL BE BLOTTED OUT.
Rev 20:12 And I
saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:
and another book
was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
*NOTE* COULD BE THAT THE "BOOKS," IS THE BIBLE, AND THE BOOK OF LIFE IS ONE THAT HAS JEWS AND GENTILES IN IT, THAT DID WHAT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO DO TO BE SAVED, IN WHATEVER PERIOD THEY WERE IN FROM GEN. TO REV.
Rev 21:27 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.
*NOTE* NEW JERUSALEM IS FOR "CHURCH AGE SAINTS," THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, REV. 21:2, HOWEVER, REV. 21:26, SHOWS THAT TRIB. SAINTS OF ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME INTO IT.
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
*NOTE* DIDN'T SAY "NAME," IT SAID "PART" OUT OF BOOK OF LIFE, AND HIS PART OUT OF THE HOLY CITY (NEW JERUSALEM) IT MUST BE REFERRING TO SOME PEOPLE IN THE TRIBULATION, WHO TRIES TO ADD TO OR TAKE AWAY FROM WHAT THE BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS.
