Rev 20 Messiah's Kingdom Pt 1 Supplement B3 – Book of Life-Lake of Fire ©2020 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot

I. God's objective: forgiven (redeemed/reconciled/justified), holy/saints (sanctified), who can be rewarded (glorified) epi (basis of) their HS motivated faithfulness, thus glorifying God when He gives them earned glory of The Age. Misunderstand: Repent; Faith, Forgiveness; Kgdm of Heaven; Eternal life; Hell; Wrath  Heb 11-brings about reward

II. Glimpses of the Kingdom and the Eternal/Forever State of the New Heavens and New Earth (post lake of fire!!)

Rev 21:6 give water of life freely to thirstsy 7 overcomes* shall inherit...will be his God son 8 But cowardly, unfaithful...liars shall have their part/inheritance Mt 24:51 Lk 15:12 Rev 20:6 in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second deathcf *Rev 2-4 overcomers

Rev 22:3...His servants shall serve Him 4 see His face 5...shall reign forever and ever 7 coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book 12 coming quickly, My reward is with Me, to give to every one acc to his work. 13 Blessed those who do His commandments (Jn 14:15; Phil 2:13), that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter thru the gates into the city 15 But outside...loves and practices a lie

A. Lamb's Book of Life/Dominion ~ ANE civil registers. Exclusion from rights (voting/ruling) and privileges/blessings of community

*Ex 32:32 forgive their sin; if not, I pray, blot me out of Your Book which You have written 33 "Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My Book. 34 lead the people...the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin

Dan12:1...then your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the Book. 2 many who sleep shall awake, Some- everlasting life, Some-shame and everlasting contempt. 3 wise shine like the brightness of the firmament, those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever

Mal 3:15 vain to serve..16 who feared the LORD spoke to one another, LORD listened;  book of remembrance was written those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. 17 "They shall be Mine- make them My jewels. 18 discern righteouswicked: who serves God vs not serve Him

B. The Righteous have been written in the Book, the unrighteous/disobedient have their names crossed/blotted out (yet have still been written in it)

*Ps 69:27..let them not attain into Your righteousness 28 Let them be blotted out of the Book of Life, and not be written with the righteous

Isa 4:3...left in Zion called holy - everyone who is recorded among the Living in Jerusalem. 4 When the Lord has washed..purged by judgment..burning

Ps 87:6 The LORD will record, when He registers the peoples: "This one was born there (Zion -City of God)." Selah

Rev 2:7 He who has an ear..hear what the Spirit says to churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the Tree of Life, 22:14 which in the midst of the Paradise of God. 10 tested..tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life (What if ur not victorious?)

*Rev 3:5 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. Cf  Lk l2:8 whoever confesses Me before men, Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God 9 who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.  2Pt 2:10 I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. 12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. 13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.

C. First Resurrection (Rapture/Trib martyrs/OT saints) obedient; deeds judged for blessing/reward or loss/punishment (not Lake of fire)

Rev 20:4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and authority to judge NIV was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark...they lived and reigned with Christ Rm 6:17 for 1k years. 5 This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part/inheritance in the first resurrection. Over such the second death 2:11; 20:14 21:8 lake of fire has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him 1k  years.

D. Second Resurrection (2nd death) deeds judged for punishment/loss (saved by having  been written in the Book of Life)  Rev 20:12 saw the dead...standing before God, books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. The dead were judged acc to their works... written in the books 15 Anyone not found written pft in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire 1Cor 3:15 fire burns works but person still saved

Jer 22:30 LORD: Write this man down as childless, a man who shall not prosper in his days  Ezk 13:9 I am indeed against you (false prophets) 9...shall not be in the assembly of My people, nor written in the record of house of Israel, nor enter into land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Rev 13:8 All on earth will worship beast, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain foundation of the world

Rev 17:8 those on the earth will marvel (beast), whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world

E. Access to Jerusalem/throne and Tree of Life (healing of nations) blessings are only for obedient holy perfected serving overcomers

Heb 12:22 you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are Registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just/righteous men (who have been -pft) made perfect/telios/end goal 2:10 thru suffering;10:14 sanct; 11:40 reward;  Phil 3:12 not yet; Js 2:22 works

Rev 21:6 Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 27 But there shall by no means enter it/City anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

Rev 22:1 river of water of life..proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 river Tree of Life, The leaves of the Tree were for the healing of the nations. 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter thru the gates into the city.

*Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Jubilees 36:10, one who contrives evil against his neighbor will be blotted out of the Book of Remembrance of men, and will not be written in the Book of Life, but in the Book of Perdition. Enoch 47:3 seate upon his throne of glory with "the Book" or "the Books of Life" ("of the Living") opened before him. 56:1, the righteous "written before the glory of the Great One," 108:3, the transgressors "blotted out of the Book of Life and out of the books of the holy ones." cf Jude Lordship Salvation sermon on Truthbase.net

The apocryphal Book of Jubilees[8] speaks of two heavenly tablets or books: a Book of Life for the righteous, and a Book of Death for those that walk in the paths of impurity and are written down on the heavenly tablets as adversaries (of God).
