BOOK OF LIFE The Lord will blot out his name under heaven


by Lorita Goza

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

‘Now if You would only forgive their sin. But if not, please erase me from the book You have written.” The Lord replied to Moses: “Whoever has sinned against Me I will erase from My book.’ (Exodus 32:32,33)

 It is clear our names were or are all entered into the Book of Life, else how could it be erased. Your name is already in ‘The Book of Life!’

‘This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him’ (Genesis 5:1)

‘Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God.’ ‘The Lord will blot out his name under heaven.’ (Deuteronomy 29:18,20).

 ‘Blot out his name under heaven,’ blotting or erasing a name from the Book of Life.  God is telling Moses, when one turns away from God and refuses to believe in God the Savior, He ‘will blot out his name under heaven.’

‘A river of fire was flowing, coming out from His presence. Thousands upon thousands served Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was convened, and the books were opened.’ (Daniel 7:10)

‘And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.’ (Dan 12:1,2)

‘Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the victor some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it.’ (Revelation 2:17)

All on the earth who worship the beast, their names have been blotted out of the Book of Life. The Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world will blot out those names from the Book of Life (Rev 13:8) (See Rev 5:6)

‘And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.’ (Revelation 20:12,15)

A new name will be given to us. With our names being in ‘the Book of Life’ from the beginning this may be the name inscribed on the stone God will give to us. When you accept Christ as your Savior you will be given the Holy Spirit to mark you as a child of God and your name will never be erased from the Book of Life.

‘You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?’ (Psalm 56:8)

Records are being kept in books in heaven.

‘Let them be erased from the book of life and not be recorded with the righteous.’ (Psalm 69:28)

God has given every life since Adam a name, a name which he has given to each and every seed that would ever exist and recorded them in The Book of Life. Our Creator knows each by name. Not the name you know, but the name God has given you. This is an example of how The Book of Life might look. God has given you a name then sealed you by God The Holy Spirit, given a white garment, given eternal life never to be erased from the Book of Life.

* Sealed by the Holy Spirit, given a white garment

‘God who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. This has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.’ (2 Timothy 1:9-10)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of lifebut will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.’ (Revelation 17:8)

‘Standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books.’ (Revelation 20:15)

‘And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book* of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.’ (Revelation 22:19)

‘O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55

Christ the Savior!

Now if you are wondering, how can I keep my name in the Book of Life you will understand the ‘only’ way is to believe the Truth. Faith in the Christ, the Son of God. He came to be with His people and to die for our sins and to rise from the grave to live eternally in heaven and to lead the way for us to rise from our grave to live with him forever in heaven.

‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he has chosen us in Him (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love; (note: the Him is – ‘Christ’) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to thegood pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved (Jesus Christ).’ (Ephesians 1:3-11)

The mystery of Christ, to be specific is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body (of Christ), and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus, through the Gospel, and the administration of ‘the mystery’ is through the church. God’s plan is being worked out through the Church, in conformity to that timeless purpose which he centered in Jesus, our Lord. ‘When I think of the greatness of this great plan I fall on my knees before God the Father. That Christ may actually live in your hearts by faith,’ awesome, amazing. Before the foundation of the world, God the Father, according to the good pleasure of His will, decided (foreknew) to predestinate all who believe in the Beloved (Christ), to give them eternal life. (Parts from J B Phillips Ephesians 3:4-11)

It is ‘… the mystery of Christ…’ ‘which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;’ (Ephesians 3: 4) …. ‘which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ;’ (3:9)……. ‘according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:’ (3:11). ‘…..and ..if the rulers and kings of this age had known it they would not have crucified him’ (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).

‘Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:’ (Colossians 1:26 – 27)

‘Now to Him who has power to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the sacred secret kept silent for long ages, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God, to advance the obedience of faith among all: To God, only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.’ (Romans 16:25)

‘For God so loved the world He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.’ (John 3:16-18)

Already condemned because before the foundation of the world God planned, the only way to salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ.

‘The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.’ (John 3:36)

‘The victor will be given a white garment, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before My Father and before His angels.’ (Revelation 3:5)

‘O Death where is your victory? O Death where is your sting?’ 1 Cor 15:55
