The Book of Life in the Bible: How to Ensure Your Name is Written

The Book of Life in the Bible is a special record that contains the identities of people that will dwell with GOD into eternity. The peculiarity of this Book is that the angels or Jesus Christ cannot have access to it except the LORD.

I would love to share a vision the LORD revealed to me that buttresses the fact that the Book of Life in the Bible is real.

“I found myself in a very massive beautiful courtyard which has the throne of the Judge in the centre and there is an exit route by the right and left side of the throne.

The courtroom is quiet and the fear of GOD is all over and the peaceful air in the massive room cannot be compared to that of the earth. Everyone is in a single queue and massive number of dead souls keep joining every second.

Everyone moves forward to the Judge and in less than a blink of an eye the judgement was done. I noticed so many souls pass through the left exit and very scanty souls pass through the right exit.”

The Book of Life in the Bible is a highly intelligent record that your brain can’t comprehend the details so don’t be deceived by religions such as Jehovah witness and other preachers who deceive people that GOD won’t have the luxury of time to judge everyone that exists on earth.  

7 Verses About the Book of Life in the Bible

1. “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.” (Revelation 20:12)

2. “…Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.” (Daniel 7:10)

3. “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (Revelation 3:5)

4. “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. 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)

5. “All who dwell on the earth will worship him (beast), whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:8)

6. “But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.” (Revelation 21:27)

7. “Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20)

How Your Name Can be Written in the Book of Life

The following points are true because I am a living witness of the Salvation of the LORD:

1. Self-Realization: Sit down and tell yourself the truth that you need to abandon worldliness, sins and things of the devil. Manifest your power of choice to follow Jesus Christ.

2. Study the Bible: Read the instructions of the LORD and not the church doctrines. This will open your eyes to see your mistakes, sins and wrong doings.

3. Genuine Repentance: Accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour. Confess all your sins and stay away from them. Obey the instructions of Jesus Christ in the Bible daily. Don’t be a lukewarm Christian.

4. Fellowship with the LORD: Don’t care about the church politics that can hurt you but spend ample time in your privacy with the LORD by praising, worshiping and praying to HIM in spirit and truth.

5. Pass the Test: GOD cannot be cheated. Don’t serve HIM because of the things you want to get from HIM.

I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:10)

GOD cannot be enticed so don’t listen to those church leaders who tell you to bring all your money to them. Your spiritual fruit is the determining factor.

 Can a Name Be Erased from the Book of Life?

Book of Life in the Bible is mentioned as a record of all those who will inherit eternal life. However, it is also mentioned that a person’s name can be removed from the Book of Life if they have sinned against God.

And the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book.” (Exodus 32:33)

So, don’t be deceived by doctrine of eternal security. If you accept Jesus Christ as your saviour and you keep committing sins deliberately then your name can’t be written in the Book of Life.


Anyone whose name is not in the Book of Life shall be cast into lake of fire for eternal punishment. Please I appeal to you to give your life to Jesus Christ and live a ‘hot’ Christian life through the counsel of the Holy Spirit.

The level of abomination in the world and the church is very high this is not an excuse for you to live a lukewarm lifestyle. Stay firm in GOD’s Holiness!

  1. Donna, I am glad to hear about your New life in the LORD.

    My response to your question will be two of the visions the LORD revealed to me to preach to the world;

    In the vision I found myself bowing before the LORD and GOD said: “Go and preach to the people in the world and say no matter how big their sins are, once they come back to ME I will forgive them all the sins, no matter how terrible it is.”

    In another vision; The LORD opened the Bible and said; ‘Preach to people that only those practicing holiness will I take to Heaven’.

    The scriptural reference from the LORD to this message is Galatians 6:15 and 16, pls read.

    GOD have truly forgive you because you had stopped sinning and you believe the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanse away your sins.

    And continue to read the Bible and Obey only the rules of the LORD given through Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit will come into you and you will have peace in your heart.

    Read Romans chapter 11 and chapter 12.
    Also read the Book of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in sequence. I believe you will have more spiritual understanding about the LORD and Prince of Peace – Jesus Christ will dwell in your heart and take away guilt from your heart.

    In other words, demons might want to keep whispering guilt to your heart to depress you so that they can get you back.
    Don’t be ignorant of this devil’s device, he uses this strategy often for new Christian converts.

    So, whenever guilt comes to your heart again respond to such taught with faithful words such as; ‘The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanse my guilt and I am free by the Power of His Resurrection’.

    The LORD will dwell in you in Jesus name.

  2. Thank you for your testimony coupled with scripture. I was a Christian who backslid horribly but am wholly repentant now. I have repented for my wickedness and turned from it. Im reading the Bible and doing everything i know to do to show my sorrow for what i have done. But when i read the Bible i am very sad sometimes because i know i sinned greatly after knowing the truth and being enlightened of the word. Can/will God truly forgive someone like me? I still feel so dirty for sinning so horribly. What scriptures can i go to to find answers?
