The Book of Life

I must admit that I had very little knowledge regarding the books of the LORD (Wars, Tears, Remembrance) that are mentioned in the Bible.

Exodus 17:14; Numbers 21:14; Psalm 56:8; Psalm 139:16; Daniel 7:10; Malachi 3:16; Luke 10:20; Philippians 4:3; Revelation 3:5; Revelation 13:8; Revelation 17:8; Revelation 20:12; Revelation 20:15; Revelation 21:27; Revelation 22:19

Having studied the book of Revelation, I was aware of the Book of Life and the Lamb’s Book of Life, but didn’t know there was a difference. Author suggested that I do some research and share it with you.

I consulted my online NKJV Bible, the Matthew Henry commentaries, omegaletter.com, and gracethrufaith.com for instruction.

And … there was plenty of information to be found, so much, in fact, that I decided to break it down into a couple of Sunday Posts.

Today’s Post is Part One, The Book of Life.

May you gain some clarification of these heavenly books, just as I did!

revive-us

To our readers,

A little over three years ago, when this blog began, I made a promise to my wife/editor that on Sunday, no matter what, we would take the day off and post a devotional that would point to Jesus Christ.

I can tell you that on several Sundays I tried to convince her that there was a breaking news story that really needed to be posted and the answer was always the same, “If I am going to edit for you – then no news on Sunday.”

What could I do? You see, I don’t see small details in my posts and without an editor, you - dear readers, would be laughing at a bazillion errors.

This Sunday we are posting one of Jack Kinsella’s letters (original-June 24, 2005) based on two fascinating Bible verses, Hosea 6:1-2. The prophet said of the Jews, “Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath smitten, and He will bind us up. ‘AFTER two days will He revive us, and IN the third day . . we will live in His sight.

Jack asks the question:

How much longer will He wait before returning for His Church and effecting Israel’s national redemption at the conclusion of the Tribulation Period?

This Sunday, as we take a rest from the news, we are featuring the work of the Rapture Ready (.com) website. Todd Strandberg’s work is a valuable resource for the Bible Prophecy student.

On his About page he said this: “I don’t know of anyone who watches more news broadcasts, reads more news articles, or browses more news-related web pages than yours truly.”

I don’t know, Todd, I think I might challenge that. Author is such an online news addict and Bible student that he has literally burned out three laptops.

The Apostle Paul explains to us that the Judgment seat of Christ is where the Christian will receive an evaluation for works done in the body, whether good or bad.

“Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences” 2 Corinthians 5:9-11.

Have a blessed Sabbath!

To Our Readers I have attended Jimmy DeYoung’s lectures whenever he is in town and make it a point to listen to his Saturday broadcast. I also visit his website www.prophecytoday.com often and had the pleasure to meet him and Jack Kinsella in Dallas at the Pre-Trib conference a few years ago. Jimmy is one of the few

SUNDAY POST: The Conditions of Discipleship

According to Oswald Chambers, “Many of us who call ourselves Christians are not devoted to Jesus Christ.” That is absolutely true.  In the Gospel of Luke 14:26 he writes that, “If any man come to Me, and hate not…  he cannot be My disciple.”  We cannot be Christ’s disciples unless we love Christ better than anything in

Sunday Post: Red Heifer Found in America

Israel Today: “Finding a red heifer is like finding a needle in a hay stack. But early this week some overly industrious Jew managed to do just that in the United States of America. This finding is all the more intriguing considering that on the coming Sabbath (Shabbat) Jews will read in the synagogues the
