b. One’s name can be removed from the book, Revelation 22:19.

c. The names of the wicked are not recorded in the book of life, Revelation 17:8.
d. The overcomer’s name will not be blotted out of the book, Revelation 3:5.
e. Those with their names in the book of life will enter the Holy City, Revelation 21:27.

3. The Scripture comments as follows regarding the book of REMEMBRANCE:

a. It records Christian testimonies and witnessing, Malachi 3:16.
b. It contains a record of our good deeds, Nehemiah 13:14.

NOTE: Salvation is a free gift of God, it is based upon the works of Jesus alone, John 1:29, 3:16, 5:24. Our works do give evidence of our connection with Jesus, however, so the Lord looks at them. “Faith without works is dead”, James 2:26. The book of Revelation says clearly four times that we will be judged by our works: Revelation 2:23, 20:12-13, 22:12. Also, Christ repeatedly said to the seven churches, “I know thy works”. Works do, indeed, say something about the depth of one’s experience with Jesus. No Christian experience can be genuine without them.

c. It records our tears, Psalm 56:8.
d. Even secret things are recorded in this book, Ecclesiastes 12:13-14.
