Jude13 Lordship Salvation Book (Tree, Fountain) of Life Part 5

(c)2019 WF Cobb Truthbase.net  DailyTruthbase.blogspot

I. God's objective: bring about 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

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

Rev 21:6 Alpha and the Omega, I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes* shall inherit all things, and I will be his God he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving/unfaithful, abominable, murderers, immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all 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 death.  cf *Rev 2-4 overcomers

Rev 22:3...His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face 5...Lord God gives them light. and they shall reign forever and ever.  7 coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book 12 I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one acc to his work. 13 Blessed are 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 are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever 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 Yet now, if You will, forgive their sin --- but if not, I pray, blot me out of Your Book which You have written."

33 And the LORD said to Moses, "Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My Book.

34 Now go, lead the people... Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin."

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

Mal 3:15 vain to serve..16 Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. 17 "They shall be Mine" says the LORD of hosts  the day I make them My jewels. 18 discern between the righteous and the wicked, Between one who serves God And one who does 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 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD shall be beautiful and glorious...3...he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be 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 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged acc to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

15 And 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; for none of his descendants shall prosper,

Ezk 13:9 I am indeed against you (false prophets), says the Lord GOD. 9...they shall not be in the assembly of My people, nor be written in the record of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the 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 freely.  19 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 "the Ancient of Days" is described as seated upon his throne of glory with "the Book" or "the Books of Life" ("of the Living") opened before him.

Enoch 56:1, the righteous "written before the glory of the Great One," 

Enoch 108:3, the transgressors "blotted out of the Book of Life and out of the books of the holy ones." 

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). Also, according to
