Revelation 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 according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
It is my firm belief that all our lives are already written. I am not discounting free will but I guess I am getting into the Quantum aspect of the Creator who travels outside of time as we know it. He has seen what decisions we have made long before we have made them, and that is not predestination, that is taking a look at what is written on page 2,745 even while we are writing page 2,401 in that personal history book diary of our lives.
This Creator God is the author and finisher of our faith. He is aware of our every thought and decision that we make and is in the business of trying to see to it that the right decisions will be made that will ultimately set us on that course toward everlasting life. People and events will come about as we travel this rocky road toward the final word which is written in our diary that will cause decisions either for or against eternal “life”. I believe that this awesome God of love has had every person, who ever lived and will ever live, written in that “Book of Life”. See Revelation 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. So, take note of the events in our lives and see where we may have made bad decisions that affect the final outcome of our lives. Let us follow the “Lamb” wherever He goes and we will survive the final judgement. We must overcome the wiles of the enemy in order to keep our name from being blotted out.
