Is your name written in the Book of Life
by Sheila Lewis Busby

There is coming a judgment day of God. Those whose names are found written in the BOOK OF LIFE will be saved. A fiery fate awaits all others. 

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Also another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, by what they had done. And if any one's name was not found written in the BOOK OF LIFE he was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:12,15 

At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in THE BOOK. Daniel 12:1 

But whose names are in the BOOK OF LIFE? 

  • not sinners (Exodus 32:33)
  • not those who worship the Antichrist (Revelation 13:8)
  • not those whose are tricked by the Antichrist's fake resurrection (Rev. 17:8)
  • but overcomers (Revelation 3:5; 12:9-12)
  • and fellow-laborers of the gospel (Phillipians 4:3)
Where do those whose names are in the BOOK OF LIFE go? 

How about Heavenly Jerusalem! But nothing unclean shall enter [New Jerusalem], nor any one who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE. Revelation 21:27 

How can you know if your name is written in the BOOK OF LIFE? 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:16 -18 

He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him. John 3:36 

Are there other ways to get to Heaven?

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me." John 14:6 

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12 

If you were to die tonight, do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you would go to heaven? 

How shall we escape
if we neglect such a great salvation?
Hebrews 2:3
