[KJV] Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE.
[NIV] Revelation 20:15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the BOOK OF LIFE was thrown into the lake of fire.
Those who are going to make heaven are those whose name are written in the lamb’s book of life! This leads us to one of the most dreadful question:
Is Your Name in the Book of Life?
After I received the life of Christ (salvation experience), I used to have unnecesary recurrent tachycardia coupled with phobia anytime I hear this question simply because I had some very funny unscriptural ideas😂
It was generally believed that you can never be sure of making heaven as long as you’re flesh and blood on this side of eternity (earth). Hence you should always examine yourself, confess your sins intermittently, pleading the blood of Jesus frequently, re-dedicating your life to Jesus etc. (sin consciousness)
Majority of the people who say the above are those who believed that salvation is an exchange. Jesus died for them and they now have to also give their life to Christ
This is absolutely unscriptural! Click Here for more!
If that belief was correct, So how come a man (flesh and blood) named Paul (an apostle) could be so sure of where he was going (Heaven)?
[KJV] 2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
[KJV] 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
[KJV] 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;[
KJV] 2 Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

[KJV] 2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is LAID UP FOR ME A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, which THE LORD, THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, shall GIVE ME at that day: and NOT TO ME ONLY, but unto ALL THEM ALSO that love his appearing.
How could he be so certainly certain with all certainty that he was going to make it to heaven?
You shall find out soon, keep on reading…

If you’re lost in all the scriptures, you could still quickly check the last one again.
Have you believed in the son?
If yes, it means you have the son!
Eternal life is in the son!
Because you have the son, you have recieved ETERNAL LIFE!
RECALL: Is your name in the Lamb's Book of Life?
You now know that: what you received at salvation is eternal life!
In the books (records) of those who have eternal life, what makes you doubt if your name is there or not?
It takes only an annoying preacher to complicate even the very simple things of Christ!

Perhaps you’re not sure yet, If you have the son, you have life and hence your name IS WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!
GLORY TO GOD! HALLELUYAH!
You’re blessed because you are in Christ!
