THE ETERNAL BOOK
Memory Verse: And whosoever was
not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:15
Read: Revelation 20:11-15
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.
Message
One outstanding need that divine
midwives must satisfy is to have
their names written in the Book of
Life. This is the most important
book in the universe. Given modern
trends and need for details, most
institutions have various books in
which records are kept and can be
retrieved in years to come. Every
organisation has a staff register
while clubs have membership
registers. Most countries of the
world have issued out social
security numbers or national
identity numbers in which certain
details of their citizens are held.
Apart from these, there are
organisations that document great
achievements within a section of
the world or across the whole
world. Some of such
documentations are referred to as
book of records. Many people strive
for their names to enter a particular
book of records, and when this is
done they appear fulfilled as they
have nothing else to strive for.
Of all books of records, there is one
that is most outstanding. It is about
human beings but it is not on earth.
It documents the names and certain
details about everyone who is
saved and washed by the blood of
Jesus. Since it is not accessible on
earth, it cannot be influenced or
manipulated. Human beings record
only the information that is
accessible to them such as the
number of births, deaths, marriages,
etc., but in the case of the Book of
Life, no record escapes the angels in
charge of this book. For now, this
book may appear not so important
to many, but according to today’s
reading, after death and on the day
of the Great White Throne
Judgment, that book will be very
relevant. If your name is in all the
important books and halls of fame
on earth, by the time you die, those
books will no longer be relevant.
Your fate will be decided by the
presence or absence of your name
in the Book of Life. So if there is one
book your name should be written
in, it is the Lamb’s Book of Life.
How? By confessing your sins,
asking for forgiveness and
accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord
and Saviour.
Key Point
If you are alive, you must do
everything possible for your name
to enter the Book of life, if not, after
death, you will be sent to hell.
