If you are familiar with the Chapter of Revelation in the Bible, then you have read the phrase “written in the book of Life”. And many probably read this phrase, and just skip over it, thinking that much of the Bible is merely stories from the ancient past. Or that the Bible is about ancient history, and not about current affairs.
Or some may think that this phrase has nothing to do with themselves, and their own lives? But the truth is… this phrase refers to every living human being, regardless where that human being is located in the whole of Creation?
The ‘Book of Life,’ I believe refers to what the mystics refer to as the Akashic Record, or the record of every Soul that still exists which is kept on the Astral region of Creation, and this record is open for all to see. And… let us take a moment to discuss the term “Creation”. The “Creation” was an event that took place, it is not something that is continually taking place relative to we Souls. The number of Souls is massive, and none but God knows that number.
My point, in terms of the Book of Life, is that all Souls that have not been eliminated are in that Book. And the “judgement” that takes place at the end of each lifetime is NOT THE FINAL JUDGEMENT OF Revelation There is a judgement at the end of each lifetime [of a human being], but that is not the Judgement spoken of in Revelation 20:11-15. 11: And I saw a grew white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
[Meaning… there was no place that one could escape this judgement].
Revelation 20:12 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.
Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Think of the book of life as a giant ledger sheet with one’s good Karma on one side and one’s negative Karma on the other side. And the balance is one’s judgement [or one’s works], and the balance is clear for anyone to weigh, or measure.
So there is apparently a threshold one must meet… and only God knows what that threshold is? And… if this sounds like a single commitment of a person saying: “I’m sorry,” will somehow erase a ton of unfinished negative Karma, think again!! It is not God that does not forgive one, it is one’s own record of negative Karma that condemns one. Mankind has a time [four Ages of Man] in which to reach a positive balance. And the Final Judgement is the end of that limit. It is in the book [in this case, the Bible] and if one has not taken advantage of reading and HEEDING the Bible, whose fault is that?
Each Soul inhabiting a human form had to make a commitment to Life, upon being given the gift of incarnating as a human being. Do not blame God for one’s own failure to live up to the commitment one made. All one’s lives are written in the Book of Life, and the Law of Karma makes no mistakes.
Life is no joke, it is deadly serious.
