In this article, we will answer the following questions:
- What are the events that will take place in Revelation 20?
- What is the basis of God for our Salvation?
- What are the different kinds of saved people?
- What is the First and the Second Resurrection?
- Who are the souls that are standing before the Great White Throne?
- Will there be souls that will be saved during the Great White Throne Judgement?
But we will concentrate to answer the last question: “Will there be souls that will be saved during the Great White Throne Judgement?” I want to concentrate on this as there are many ministers and believers who believe that there will be souls that will be saved during the Great White Throne Judgement. We will consult the Bible about this as this understanding is completely in contradiction to the Bible truths, especially on the topic of Salvation.
SOME MINISTERS’ BELIEFS
Bro. William M. Branham, when asked if there are souls who will be saved during the White Throne Judgement on the Question and Answer dated August 30, 1964, said that both the Just and the Unjust will be raised up during the judgement. But he also believes that these souls will not be given Eternal Life pointing out Revelation 20:5 that says the rest of the dead will not live again after the Millennium.
On the other hand, bro. Richard L.S. Gan in his book “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” in Chapter 20, stated that there will be souls who will receive eternal life during the White Throne Judgement. They are the souls whose names are written in the Book of Life but are neither Bride of Christ nor Foolish Virgins nor Sheep. He called them people who have a certain “FAITH-relationship” with the Lord. Brother Gan emphasized that these people were saved according to their works and not for any other reason, pointing out Revelation 20:12-13. He gave Cornelius of Acts 10 as an example of these people.
Many ministers also are clinging to these beliefs. But what does the Bible say? The Bible is telling us not to depend on man but to always go back to It. The Bible should be our Absolute. And these men of God mentioned above are also telling us that if what they taught is not in the Bible or are in contradictory to It, we must leave them. So we will do that exactly. We will now consult the Word of God.
First, we need to go back to the definition of Salvation. What is salvation according to the Bible? What does being saved means?
The word Salvation came from the Greek word “sōzō” (pronounced as sode’-zo) which means “to rescue from danger or destruction” “to preserve from danger” “to deliver from the penalties of the Messianic Judgement.” In English, it came from the root word “salvage” which means “rescued.”
The next question is, from what are we being rescued? From what danger or destruction are we being preserved? If we will consult our Bible, it tells us that being saved means we are rescued from the suffering in Hell (Mark 9:43, Luke 16:24) and the destruction of our souls in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:14-15). This is why being saved also means having Eternal Life because those people who possess Eternal Life are the souls that cannot be destroyed in Hell and in the Lake of Fire (John 3:16). Now, this Eternal Life is no other than our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:4, John 14:6, 1 John 2:25).
HOW CAN WE HAVE SALVATION?
So how is a man being saved? According to Ephesians 2:8-9:
“For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God not by works lest ay man should boast.”
Being saved was and is still by Grace through Faith. Since the creation of Man, this has never changed and will never change in the future. IT IS A GIFT OF GOD and not of Man’s works. If you believe that you can attain salvation because you have done something (work) to have it, then it is not a gift anymore. For a gift is free. You did not pay for it or do something in order to have it.
If you think you have attained salvation by works, then it is not Grace anymore. For something to be called “by Grace,” the works should be done by the Giver alone and not by the receiver. If even a small amount of involvement is required from the receiver, then it is not Grace anymore. The receiver must have no involvement for it to be called Grace. And since our works have nothing to do with our salvation, no works of us also can ever unsaved us. Meaning, there’s nothing that you can do that can cause your salvation to be lost (Rom. 8:38-39).
In order for us to be saved by grace, our Lord Jesus Christ Who is God manifested in flesh, gave His life to the cross and poured out His blood for the remissions of our sins. We know that all of us sinned and fall short in the glory of God (Rom 3:23). Satan, therefore, has a claim for every child of God. We are pawned, so to speak. But then our Lord Jesus redeemed us by giving His own blood as payment so that we are saved by His blood (Eph. 1:7, Rom. 3:25, John 3:16).
To summarize, we are saved because our Lord Jesus Christ poured out His blood for us. THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR ABOUT SALVATION: We are saved by Grace and NOT by any of our works (Rom. 11:6). If we can be saved by our works, then we don’t need our Lord Jesus Christ to die for us on the cross. His death then would be in vain (Gal. 2:21). Aside from Grace, the Bible does not give any other means for us to be saved.
THE GOATS AND THE SHEEP
But we must remember that there are two kinds of people on this Earth, the Goats and the Sheep (Mat. 25:31-46). They are also known as the Good Seeds and the Bad Seeds or the Wheat and the Tares (Mat. 13:24-30). Our Lord Jesus Christ only came for the Sheep and not for the Goats. He only died for the Sheep and not for the Goats (John 10:11). Therefore, His blood is only for the Sheep for he can only pay for His own. He cannot redeem those that are not His own for our Lord is not a Goat (Isa. 43:1). Our Lord is the Lamb of God (sheep), therefore, He can only pay for the Sheep.
Again, those who have been justified (declared not guilty) by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ are only the sheep. That’s why the sheep are also called “The Just.”
THREE KINDS OF SHEEP
According to the Bible, there are three kinds of Sheep or saved people that was paid by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the cross. They are the following:
1. The Bride – first is the Bride of Christ, also known as the Wise Virgins (Mat. 25:1-13). They are the kind of Sheep that will be Raptured for they will be perfected (Eph. 4:13). The Bride will sit in the thrones and reign with Christ during the Millennial Kingdom (Rev. 20:4). The Bride is the Sheep that have been Born Again (John 3:3), their souls have been completely transformed (Rom. 12:2) and their bodies have been Glorified (1 Cor. 15:52-53, 1 Thes. 4:16-17). They are the ones who have completed the three stages of Spiritual Perfection.
2. The Foolish Virgins – the second kind of Sheep or saved people are the Foolish Virgins (Matt. 25:2-3). Just like the Bride of Christ, they have also been redeemed by His blood (Justified). And just like the Bride, they have also experienced being Born Again (John 3:3) that’s why they have oils in their Lamps (Matt. 25:1-7). Oil symbolizes the Holy Spirit (Isa. 61:1, Acts 10:38) and the Word of God that lights our paths (Psa. 119:105, John 6:63). So the Spirit of God also dwells in them. Their only difference to Bride is that, their souls are not completely transformed (Rom. 12:2) for the oil (Word, Spirit) that is in them is not enough (Matt. 25:8). This is because, they did not follow the message of the Midnight Cry to go and meet the Bridegroom (Word)(Matt. 25:6). They have wandered too much in the darkness of the wilderness and have never come to Canaan (Word). Therefore, unlike the Bride, they will not experience the Rapture. They will die during the Great Tribulation (Rev. 20:4).
3. The Sheep or the Just– we will call the third group as the Sheep or the Just for just like the Bride and the Foolish Virgins, they are also redeemed and justified by the blood of the Lord. Only that, they have not experienced being Born Again and being Raptured. Although all of these three groups are Sheep (seeds of God), this third group are only Justified by the blood but were not transformed and were not glorified.
Aside from these three, there are no other groups of saved people in the Bible.
WHERE DO PEOPLE GO WHEN THEY DIE?
Death is the cessation of Life. It is also a separation. Our first death occurs when our spirit and souls separate from our body. The Second Death occurs when the spirit separates from the soul which will happen when the wicked souls will be cast in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:14, Ezek.18:4). The second death will only be experienced by the Goats and not by the Sheep.
So where do people go when they die?
If the person who died is a Goat (not a child of God), his/her soul and spirit will go to Hell (Greek: Hades) where he/she will suffer torments as written in Luke 16:23. Hell is also called a prison for the wicked souls (1 Pet. 3:18-20).
On the other hand, if the person who died is a Sheep (child of God: Bride, Foolish Virgins and Sheep), he/she will go straight to Paradise which is now in heaven (Luke 23:43, 2 Cor. 12:4). Paradise is also known as “Abraham’s Bosom” (Luke 16:22). It is the place where our Lord Jesus is waiting for us (2 Cor 5:8, Phil 1:23, Heb 12:23).
So Paradise is the place prepared by our Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:3) for His children (Bride, Foolish Virgins, Sheep). Those people that He had redeemed by His own blood who are the Spiritual Seeds of Abraham.
WILL THERE BE SHEEP WHO WILL NOT GO TO PARADISE WHEN THEY DIE?
The Bible is very clear, there are no accidents with God (Isa. 46:10). All that is His (redeemed by His blood) will go to Him when they die (Rom. 14:8, 2 Cor. 5:6-8, Isa. 43:1, 1 The. 4:13-14). No soul of a Sheep will accidentally go to hell or will be left behind in the grave. That’s why you must not believe the “Soul Sleep” doctrine propagated by the Jehovah’s Witnesses who believe that our souls will remain (sleep) in the grave when we die. That’s purely unbiblical. What’s Biblical is that all the Sheep will go to be with our Lord Jesus when they die as written also in Philippians 1:21-23:
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better.”
This is the reason why I can’t believe why there are still ministers among us who believe that there will be some of the Sheep who will not go to our Lord when they die.
THE FIRST AND SECOND RESURRECTIONS
First of all, what is a Resurrection?
The Greek word used for resurrection is “anastasis” which means “raising up, rising or standing up again.” According to John 5:28-29, there are two kinds of resurrection or rising up of the dead, first is the Resurrection of Life and second is the Resurrection of Damnation:
“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”
This was even confirmed in Daniel 12:2
“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.”
These two kinds of resurrections are also known as the “First and Second Resurrections” (Rev. 20:5-6). According to the given verses above, the first resurrection is the resurrection of life while the second resurrection is the resurrection of damnation. This means that ALL of those who will be resurrected (raised up) on the first resurrection will be raised up to everlasting life. On the other hand, ALL of those who will be raised up in the second resurrection will be damned. So it is now clear, THERE WILL BE NO SOUL WHO WILL BE SAVED ON THE SECOND RESURRECTION. Otherwise, if there’s even one soul who will be saved during the second resurrection (as taught by some ministers), it cannot be called a resurrection of damnation. Those verses will then become false.
This was even made clearer by Revelation 20:6 saying:
“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
It is only in the first resurrection that the second death has no power. Only those resurrected in the first resurrection will be resurrected to Life.
WHO ARE THE RECIPIENTS OF THE FIRST AND SECOND RESURRECTIONS?
The reason why the first resurrection is called the resurrection of life is because its recipients are all possessors of Eternal Life (Matt. 25:46). They are the people who were redeemed (justified) by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. They are His seeds. They possess Eternal Life in them. They are no other than the Sheep (Bride, Foolish Virgins, Sheep).
When a Sheep died, his/her soul and spirit go directly to Paradise to be with our Lord while his/her physical body goes into the ground (Rom. 14:8, 2 Cor. 5:6-8, Isa. 43:1, 1 The. 4:13-14). During the first resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ will raise their bodies back to life-giving them new and incorruptible bodies that will unite with their souls and spirit. This is the First Resurrection. This resurrection will happen before the start of the Millennial Kingdom so that all the Sheep will experience living in this 1000-year reign of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The reason why it is necessary for the Sheep to experience the Millennial Kingdom is because they are the inheritor of It (Matt. 25:34). The Kingdom was prepared for them. They are the Wheat that is gathered in the barn of the Lord (Matt. 13:30).
Now, where there be Sheep who will not be resurrected on the First Resurrection but will be raised up during the Second Resurrection? The answer is NONE. Again, there are no accidents with God. In the first place, the reason why He gathered all the souls of the Sheep in Paradise when they die, is for all of them to be resurrected on the First Resurrection.
On the other hand, the second resurrection will happen right after the Millennial Kingdom (Rev. 20:7-12). Unlike the first resurrection, this second resurrection is called the Resurrection of Damnation (John 5:29, Dan. 12:2) because its recipients are NOT possessors of Eternal Life. They are the Goats or the Tares (Mat. 13:24-30) who are bound to be burned (Matt. 13:30) in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:15).
Like what I have said above, if you are a Goat, when you die, your soul will directly go to hell. Why do you go to hell? That’s to suffer torments (Luke 16:23). Hell is also the place where all Tares (Goats) are gathered to be cast in the lake of fire during the Great White Throne Judgement.
Question: Will there be souls that came from hell who will be saved during the Great White Throne Judgement?
The answer is obviously NONE. In the first place, your soul came to hell because there is no Eternal Life in you. You go to hell because you are bound to be cast in the Lake of fire. This is also the reason why hell is also called DEATH (Rev. 20:13-14) because the souls who will go there will surely experience the second death (Rev. 20:6). It is called the place of the dead because the souls that will go there have no Eternal Life.
THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT
“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 20 summarizes the events that will take place from the beginning of the Millennial Kingdom up to the Great White Throne Judgement. We will then look one by one at the events that will going to take place during the Great White Throne Judgement.
“AND I SAW A GREAT WHITE THRONE, AND HIM THAT SAT ON IT, FROM WHOSE FACE THE EARTH AND THE HEAVEN FLED AWAY; AND THERE WAS FOUND NO PLACE FOR THEM.”
The great Judge here sitting on a white throne is no other than our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 17:31, Acts 10:42). It is seen as a white throne because the judgement that will come from that throne is pure judgement. Meaning, everyone will receive the judgement that he/she deserves. There will be no injustice here. You receive what you deserve. The souls that will stand before Him will find no other place to go also. No one can hide or turn away from His judgement. Everyone will be judged.
At this point, our Lord Jesus is no longer a mediator but a Judge. This event is called the Great White Throne Judgement because every soul here that will be judged will receive condemnation. None will be saved.
“AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STAND BEFORE GOD”
What the Apostle John saw here are all DEAD people. Remember that these people are all resurrected souls. So why did the Apostle John call them DEAD? It is because these souls have no Eternal Life. They are not saved people. They are all dead. All of them are bound for the second death. Therefore, all of these souls are Goats. None of them is a Sheep.
“AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED”
We are a book (2 Cor. 3:2-3). All human beings are books. Our lives are books that can be read by everyone. Everyone is an epistle. But just like the natural books, not all of us contained Christ. Why many did not contain Christ? Because many among us are not authored by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is only in those books who were authored by the Lord Himself that we can read Him. But to those whose author is not the Lord, and whose works are not the working of the Lord, are certainly not His. One can’t read the Lord in them and He is not reflected in each page of their lives.
So who are the “books” that were opened here? They are no other than the Goats who are before the throne. Why are they opened? In order for their books (lives) to be exposed and to pass proper judgement upon them.
“AND ANOTHER BOOK WAS OPENED, WHICH IS THE BOOK OF LIFE”
So if the books are people, then this book of Life must also be a person! Who is it then?
He is no other than our Lord Jesus Christ! He is the only source of Life (John 14:6), that’s why He is called the Book of Life and the Word of God (Rev. 19:13). Just like us, He is also a Book. He is the Book of all books. His Life is even according to the volume of the book that is written of Him (Heb. 10:7). He gave His life for us that we might be founded (written) on Him and be a part of that Book of Life, which is His Body – the whole Him. For our names to be written in this Book of Life means for us to be part of the Body of Christ – to be part of His Attributes which is the source of Life. We are written by Him before the foundation of the world.
If you are a sheep, surely, your name is written in our Lord. There’s no need for our Lord to open the Book of Life when He sees you because he knows His own (John 10:27). He doesn’t need to open the Book of Life to check if your name is written on It. If He is the author of your book, then He knows your book very well.
But what is the reason why in this passage, there is a need to open the Book of Life? That’s because, those books that were opened prior to the opening of the Book of Life, were not written by our Lord. Those souls are not authored by our Lord. This is the reason why in the next passage we can read:
“AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED OUT OF THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.”
Those dead souls (not having Eternal Life) were judged according to the things written in their books. And what are those things written in their books? It is no other than THEIR WORKS. If you will read the books of these dead souls, you can read in them their own works. The Bible is clear on this. The things written on the books of these dead souls are their own works. Some may say “It is not actually their works, but it is God’s works through them” to insist that these souls will be saved. But the Bible is clear. They are dead souls. Meaning, the source of Life is not the author of these souls.
You may ask: “If they are all Goats, then what is the purpose of the Lord in opening their books and judging them by their works? Will they still receive salvation from Him?
The answer is No. None of them will receive salvation from the Lord. We must remember that salvation cannot be achieved by works, it is only by Grace (Eph. 2:8-9). The purpose why the Lord will judge them by their works is not to save them from the Lake of Fire, but to determine how long will they suffer (their penalties) in the Lake of Fire before their souls will be totally annihilated in it.
You may also ask: “If they are all bound to be cast in the Lake of Fire, why is there a need for the Lord to open the Book of Life if all of their names are not written on It?”
Our Lord Jesus is a just and a righteous Judge. Righteousness demands that the guilty will know why they deserve the penalties that were given to them. A righteous Judge cannot just declare someone to be guilty without showing his/her offence and why he/she is guilty. That’s the reason why there is a need to open the Book of Life. To show to these Goats that they are not written on It and therefore, will be judged and will be cast into the Lake of Fire. That way, the righteousness of the Lord is manifested.
“AND THE SEA GAVE UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN IT; AND DEATH AND HELL DELIVERED UP THE DEAD WHICH WERE IN THEM”
Since this is the last judgement, all the souls that were not resurrected during the First Resurrection were all resurrected here. And the number of these people are so numerous that they are seen by the Apostle John here as coming from the SEA. Now, the “sea” here represents “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues” (Rev.17:15) (read also Isa.17:12; 57:20; Jude 1:13, Dan. 7:2). This means that those dead souls came from the multitude of people and are imprisoned in hell. They are numerous.
Now, remember again that “death and hell” here which delivered up the dead (souls not having Eternal Life), are one and the same place. When a Goat dies, his/her soul and spirit goes directly to hell. Hell is also called Death because the souls who will go there will surely experience the second death (Rev. 20:6). It is the place of the dead souls (no Eternal Life). During the Great White Throne Judgement, these wicked souls will be resurrected to face the Great Judge and receive their penalties.
“AND THEY WERE JUDGED EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS”
Again, no one can be saved by his/her works (Eph. 2:8-9, Gal. 2:21, Rom. 11:6, Rom. 9:16). We are only saved by Grace (Eph. 2:8) that is, when Christ redeemed us by His own blood (Gal. 2:21). You are saved by Grace because Someone has done everything for your Salvation. It is the work of our Lord Jesus Christ alone. You have done nothing or even contributed something in order to have It.
Now, if you are judged according to your works and not to the work of Christ in the cross, you are sure to be cast in the Lake of Fire. This is because none of our works can save us. Therefore, none of these souls will be saved. The reason why they are judged according to their works is for the Lord to give them their appropriate length of suffering in the Lake of Fire before their souls will be totally annihilated in it. The length of their suffering will be according to their works written in their books. The more evil things they did in this world while they are still alive, the longer will be their suffering in the Lake of Fire.
“AND DEATH AND HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH.”
After giving judgement for each soul, death and hell of where these souls are contained were cast into the lake of fire. According to Revelation 20:13, there is only one place where these souls came from, it’s from hell or also known as death. This means that all those souls will be cast in the Lake of Fire along with death and hell itself. All of them will be annihilated. After this, there will be no more dead souls (without Eternal Life) and hell that will contain them.
This is the second death. What is the second death? We have known that death is a separation. Our first death occurs when our soul and spirit separate from our physical body. The second death, therefore, is when our spirit separates from our souls. All wicked souls will be burnt and destroyed in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:6,14) — “the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezek.18:4). Then our spirit that leaves our soul will return to God where it originates.
“AND WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.”
Many are confused about this last verse of Revelation 20. Just because it is said that “whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire,” they have already concluded that there will be some among those souls facing the White Throne Judgement whose names are written in the Book of Life and therefore, those souls will be saved. These people are taking exactly what the opposite of this verse is saying. They don’t take the verse but its the opposite. Now, take a look at another example of how people are taking the opposite of the Scripture instead of the Scripture itself:
In Revelation 3:5b it says:
“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.”
People will then get the exact opposite of that verse and will then conclude: “So this means that there will be a blotting out of names from the Book of Life! So Eternal security is not true! There will be people who are once saved that will be unsaved because their names are blotted out!”
Look how ridiculous is this. You might laugh at it but I have seen and heard many preachers in the Endtime Message who preached about “How the Lord will blot out our names in the Book of Life” or “Why our Lord will blot out our names in the Book of Life.” You see? When the verse is saying this, they will exactly get its opposite instead of what the verse says! When the Lord say “I will not blot out” they will conclude “so the Lord will blot out.”
When the Bible say “Their names were not found written in the Book of Life” what they will conclude is “So there will be names among those souls that were found written in the Book of Life.” The exact opposite! And what’s sad about this is, these people are ministers who preach the Bible.
Beloved Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, always remembers this: There are three things that we should never do with the Word of God. First, YOU MUST NOT MISINTERPRET THE WORD. Second, YOU MUST NOT MISPLACE THE WORD and third, YOU MUST NOT DISLOCATE THE WORD. Take the verse itself, not its opposite.
When the verse says “whosoever was not found written in the book of life,” DOES NOT MEAN that there will already be some among those souls that are written in the Book of Life. It simply means that there is a sure casting of souls in the Lake of Fire for those whose names are not written in the Book of Life. The emphasis here is the sure casting of souls. ALL of those souls will surely be cast in the Lake of Fire.
The same is true in Revelation 3:5b. The promise: “I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,” does not mean that some do have their names blotted out. It simply means that to those whose names are in the Book of Life, the Lord will never blot out their names. Again, the emphasis is on the sureness of not blotting out our names. Not the opposite.
We also know that the Book of Life is not a literal book. Our Lord also did NOT write our names in the Book of Life when we were born here on Earth or when we experience being born again. The Bible says that God wrote our names on It before the foundation of the world:
Rev 13:8 “All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.“
Rev 17:8 “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.”
Our Lord God had already written the names of those who were saved in the Book of Life before the foundation of the world. Not during their birth nor during their born again experience here on Earth nor when they do good here on Earth. He already knows those who are saved for they are His before the foundation of the world. Those who are not saved were in the first place NOT written in His book before the foundation of the world. That is why it is ridiculous to believe that those people who will be judged according to their works here on Earth during the Great White Judgement are written in the Book of Life.
Our names being written in the Book of Life does not depend on our works. We are written on It before the foundation of the world, even before we did something here on Earth. Our Lord isn’t making daily alterations in the Book based on what we are doing here on Earth. Some think that He is erasing names when we do something wrong and writing them back again when we did good! No, no, no! This is too far from the truth. Our names are written before the foundation of the world and they will never be erased.
So that’s it! NOT A SOUL WILL BE SAVED DURING THE WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT. It is already judgement for all of them, not Grace. I don’t want this article to be long. I hope this has helped you clarify the confusion about our salvation and about the events that will take place during the Great White Throne Judgement. And I hope this has answered your questions.
May the Lord continue to guide us into all truth is my prayer.
