Pastor Malone:

I recently told my Sunday School class I thought there were two books. A book of life which you could be taken out of, and the Lambs book of life which you could not be taken out of. Can you shed some light on this as they did not agree. Thanks



Dear Whitten:

Thanks for your question. This question is very important, but few understand what these two books represent. The Book of Life is the book that records everyone who has ever lived or ever will live. When one dies in their sin's, he/she is blotted out of the book of life. It is very important for us to remember that Old Testament Saints were justified by faith. Even though Christ had not yet died for the sin's of the world, salvation was still available through faith in the coming Messiah.

"These all died in faith (Old Testament Saints), not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them not having seen the promise..." (Hebrews 11:13a)

Because of their faith in the Promise (which is Jesus) to come, they were not blotted out of the Book of Life. They desired a better country.

The Lamb's Book of Life is the book that records all those who have received Christ. This book will consist of only the names of the New Testament Saints. Those listed in this book are considered to be a gift from God to His Son Jesus. They are the bride of Christ.

Revelation 20:12 describes a time of final judgment for those who are lost. "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."

Here each person who has ever lived (who is lost) will be judged individually based upon their works. It will not be to determine if they are good enough to get into heaven. This judgment will determine the severity of their eternal torment. Notice that verse 12 records the opening of three books. Only the Book of Life is mentioned by name. The other two books are the Book of Standards (The Bible) and the Book of Remembrance. The Book of Standards will be the standard in which the lost will be judged. Of course, without Christ they will not measure up. The Book of Remembrance is the book that records every deed ever performed, good or bad, by those who are lost. Again, without Christ, all their evil deeds will be remembered and held against them.

What a horrible moment in time it will be for billions of people. Lost, without hope, and without excuse.

"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:15)

But why are these people being judged, if in the end, they're all going to be cast into the lake of fire? Just as there will be varying degrees of rewards in heaven, there will also be varying degrees of punishment for those who are cast into the lake of fire. You may ask, "What's worse then being thrown into a lake of fire for an eternity?" I don't know, only God can answer that question, but there will be something worse.
