What is the book life, how are our names written in that book?

Revelation 20:11-15 (KJV)

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

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.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Amen! Following the above verses, we see in the last day of Judgment when the Lord Jesus sits to judge the people of the world in His white throne, there will be two main types of books: THE BOOK OF LIFE and the OTHER BOOKS. There you see the book of life looking like one! But there are also other books, suggesting many, Lets briefly explore what these books really are;


As it describes itself is a book that describes LIFE, just as a book of mathematics describes mathematical methods, a book of geography explains geographical issues as well as all other books. And we know books tend to be split into different pages. But we see all these books we have in the world are only telling us the principles and techniques of many things about this world, and we see that no book in the world can explain the LIFE of man except the Bible ONLY! So, the book of life referred to here is the Bible which is the WORD of GOD.


We find the Bible has referred to them as many, which in turn tell some information and not any more than of human beings according to the Bible. These are the BOOKS of men and every man has his own, describing his life as he lived on this earth since his birth to his death. And these books also have pages, which are the steps you go through here on earth, but all these books have no life in it, the book of Life is, but one, and that is why they all depend on that book to give a human destiny.

So what the book of Life describes is the rules and regulations of how a man should live on this earth in order to get that life embedded in it, so as human beings who write books of our lives we must write them to resemble that book of Life, the Bible, from our childhood to our departure from the world. our books are supposed to resemble this book, and that is the appearance of our names in the BOOK OF LIFE.

So brother, how do you write your book? watch the time’s running out! do not say that I will receive Christ or that I will live a holy life until I reach a certain age or experience something. Know until now your book is being written and day by day you are opening a new pages and chapters, soon your book will be finish and closed, ready to be released on the day of Judgement

And on the Day of Judgment the book of Life will be opened and yours will also be opened, compared, whether they are the same or not!. If your life in your book did not match that of that of life (i.e. the Bible, the WORD OF GOD) meaning there is NO LIFE in you, then your part will be in the lake of fire.

As a Christians every day we must compare our lives with the Bible. Make sure what we do is in accordance with the Book of Life. you are fully aware that  prostitutes, fornicators, drunkards, revilers, idolaters, liars, gossipers, gays, lesbians, smokers, masturbation practitioners, pornographers, thieves, corrupters, sorcerers, bribes, murderers, etc., people like these are far from the book of LIFE, how do you expect to appear in the book if you do of those things?, remember the names mentioned there are not John, John or Mary but it is your life. read.

Revelation 21:27 (KJV)

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

To write correctly your book according to the book of life, remember it is not a one-day process. Every day one must check his life, not despise the gospel, if you hear the Word of God tonight, don’t harden your heart thinking there will come a time you will repent. If you live that life Never expect the match in one day, it requires life to live so that to write a better book which resemble that of life. The Lord said.

Luke 9:23  (NIV)

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

My prayer is that you turn to God.Start writing your book well in your spare time on earth, daily comparing your book with thebible so that when your name called, will be seen in that book.

God bless you!
