LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE – WHAT IS IT?
The Lamb's Book of Life (also called The Book of Life) is a record containing the names of all those who have been spiritually reborn (redeemed). This means that they have accepted Jesus as their Savior, made Him Lord of their life, and will live with God in heaven throughout eternity.
The following Bible references speak of the Lamb's Book of Life.
Revelation 3:5 (NIV) says “The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.”
Revelation 13:8 (NIV) says “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.”
Revelation 20:15 (NIV) says “Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 21:27 (NIV) says “Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.”
THE JUDGMENT OF THE DEAD
Revelation 20:11-15 (NIV) says “Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
THE LAKE OF FIRE
Revelation 20:10 (NKJV) says “The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
The Lake Of Fire is described as a place of burning sulfur, and those in it will experience unspeakable agony of an unrelenting nature forever and ever. Everyone who rejects God's Free Gift Of Salvation (Jesus Christ) will have the Lake Of Fire as their final destination. You don't want to go there!
But those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life should have no fear of this terrible fate in the Lake Of Fire. Those who have faith in Christ and His blood shed on the cross for our sins are destined to live eternally in the presence of God.
