Which Book are You in?

Genesis 5:1   This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

There are two basic books or records of the generations mentioned in the Bible:  The book of Adam (death) and the book of Jesus Christ (life).  In Genesis chapter 5 the book of death is introduced.  After Adam had fallen, all of his generations were given a death sentence.  Because of the initial anointing on his life, it took many years for death to overtake him and the initial generations thereafter.  It is clear that life was difficult to overcome and speaks to the impact of FATHER’S life-giving SPIRIT on the physical.  The generations of Adam continue down this path of death to this very day.  Those who are written in this book are the ones who worship the beast:

Revelation 13:8    All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The verse clarifies the fact that there are two basic books contrasting those who worship the beast versus those who don’t.  Those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will not worship the beast or follow after it.  The second book is first revealed in Matthew chapter 1:

Matthew 1:1   The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

The 17th verse reveals that there are forty-two generations from Abraham to Christ.  We are the 42nd generation and represent the Body of Christ.  Likewise there were 41 moves in the wilderness and the 42nd move was crossing over into the Promised Land.  What a beautiful picture of victory over the beast system.

Can your name be transferred from one book to another?  Absolutely!  FATHER has a removal and restoration process.  You began as a vessel of dishonor for all have fallen short of the Glory of GOD and Jesus died for the ungodly which included all of us.  However you can become a vessel of honor and have your name added to the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.  We find this occurring in Exodus 32:

33  And the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. 34 Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.”

35  So the LORD plagued the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron made.

These people were called to HIS specific purpose and those who worshipped the golden calf were removed from HIS book.  Jesus Himself spoke of this potential removal from His Book as we saw earlier in Revelation chapter 3:

5  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.

Does this mean you will lose your salvation?  No, it means you will not fulfill the calling and mission of the overcomer, the first squadron to be caught up for HIS Purpose to minister Life to all mankind.  You can individually be placed in another group thus receiving your reward at a different time.  Remember, the woman (church) is sustained in the wilderness whereas the Sons are caught up to Heaven.  We are not to sit idly by assuming that we are in the Book of Life just because the Sonship revelation was revealed to us.  You could easily be an observer to Christ’s mighty works rather than a participant.  It depends on your priority and willingness to proceed to Spiritual maturity, setting aside the distractions of the world.

Jesus made it quite plain in Matthew 7:

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

I remind you that there is a simplicity of following Christ.  Men would have you believe that His Way is complex and intricate and only those of superior intelligence will be able to walk the path.  I say to you that those who Love HIM and take on HIS Character will overcome all.  We must know HIM and HIS Love and forsake lawlessness.  As we become like Him, lawlessness will cease.  We will no longer do things for personal gain but instead will take on a life of service to others.  We will have a heart to serve mankind in whatever capacity our calling requires.  We don’t need to understand the meaning of every number or every name in the Bible.  Yes it is magnificent to discover how glorious FATHER’S Word comes together in a seamless manner interweaving the various facets of numbers, names, types, and shadows together.  But let us return to the simplicity of Love so that we not be distracted by anything that takes our eyes off of the high calling.

Those who are written in the Book of Live will not worship the beast and it is clear to the beast which group you are in.  You are not to be intimidated by the beast but you are to overcome it by the Blood of the Lamb.  You will not fear death because it has lost its sting.  You will not fear man because “greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world”.  If GOD be for us, who can be against us?  When you are challenged, you will use the Words given by HIM whom you trust, “It is written”.  As you fully embrace HIS Love resulting in fully trusting IN HIM, you will not have your name blotted out of the Book of Life for you are qualified as an overcomer.
