The Heavenly Books
Scripture has revealed that everything that has ever happened in the world has been written down in heavenly books. "You had scrutinized my every action, all were recorded in your book, my days listed and determined, even before the first of them occurred." (Ps.139:16).
These volumes will be brought forth and opened in the courtroom. Among these will be a "Book of Remembrance" (Malachi 2:16) in which the names of all the virtuous are recorded. "And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; the dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books." (Rv.20:12).
Anyone who lives a sinful life will have his name blotted out of God's book of remembrance. "The Lord replied to Moses, whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book." (Ex.32:33).
"Nothing impure can enter the kingdom of heaven, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life." (Rv.21:27).
Anyone whose name does not appear in God's Book of Life will be thrown into the lake of fire. (Rv.20:15). This is why God made a way for us to get out of sin, so that our names would not be blotted out of the book that He had written.
