Book Of Life
The Book of Life that our GOD keeps
is filled with many names…
The listing of HIS saints on earth
that tired of sin and games.
One day we’ll stand before our GOD,
the greater and the small.
The Book will then be opened…
and our GOD will judge us all.
That day we stand before HIM
they will call out each name shown.
If your name isn’t listed…
your opportunity has flown.
To be included in this book,
should be your chief desire.
If your name is not recorded…
you’ll be cast into the fire.
You may ask, what can I do…
to have my name included?
Your works are as some filthy rags;
they are all excluded.
The book will list your deeds on earth,
showing all you’ve done.
Most important of these all…
Do you know HIS SON?
Some will claim they lived good lives
and seldom did a wrong.
They will rest upon their works
to be among GOD’S throng.
They’ll be shown the many times
that Our LORD was presented.
They will also view the many times
that JESUS was resented.
The masses of humanity
will each obtain their turn.
Their lives upon review,
will determine… save, or burn.
There can’t be… one last appeal;
there will be record of their choice.
Only those who chose LORD JESUS,
will have a reason to rejoice.
If you’re among the many souls
that thinks there is no Hell…
and plan to live your life with sin,
and you’ll be just as well…
You’re in for disappointment,
don’t let your own heart harden.
“You” should come to our LORD JESUS
and accept HIS pardon.
To be saved… it is that simple.
Just ask HIM to come in.
JESUS loves you always…
HE will forgive all of your sin.
Don’t listen to the devil
and be deceived by all his lies.
If you think… there is no Hell…
you’re in for a surprise.

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
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.
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.
