If we pass from death unto life by the bestowment of agape love, and Christ

is agape love, then HE THAT OBTAINS LIFE IN THE AGAPE LOVE OF CHRIST
HAS
CHRIST, AND IS IN UNION WITH CHRIST. The only life listed in Scripture being
IN CHRIST, IS AGAPE LOVE LIFE. Therefore we
conclude correctly that THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE IS IN FACT
THE BOOK OF ALL THOSE WHO HAVE HAD AGAPE LOVE BESTOWED
UPON THEM. They are
the overcomers, the regenerated.

"AND THIS IS THE RECORD:

THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE

AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON." I John 5:11

It is important to realize how the BOOKS ARE USED IN JUDGEMENT. We are going
to find that there was TWO BOOKS OF LIFE. One is
the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE, the other is a book that list's every man, woman,
and child ever born on earth. It is simply called THE BOOK
OF LIFE. We will see how all of this fits together. The Book of
Life is in reality a BOOK OF ALL NATURALLY BORN HUMAN BEINGS WHO
HAVE
NATURAL LOVE IN THEM. The book of life could be called THE BOOK OF PHILEO

LOVE LIFE for all practical purposes. It will soon become clear why this is
so.

We find mention of this book of life in several places, and we should


examine them closely, for it helps unlock the mystery of the deception of
phileo love. We have not covered the very controversial subject of ETERNAL
SECURITY IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. That can be found in the last book in
this series. The long and short of it is this: ETERNAL SECURITY IS AN
ABSOLUTE FACT ONLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN REGENERATED. It will
be proven
with multiple verses of Scripture that this is a truth, even if you do not
believe it. The problem with the doctrine of eternal security is that the
false prophets, teachers, preachers and evangelists CLAIM A REGENERATION
THEY DO NOT HAVE, AND THEN ADD THE DOCTRINE OF ETERNAL
SECURITY TO MULTIPLY
THEIR DECEPTION! Some of the verses we will examine will imply the doctrine
of eternal security IF YOU HAVE LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS. It does not apply to
anyone else.
There are numerous verses of Scripture advanced by the opponents of eternal
security to prove it could not be true. The verses they advance to prove
their point CATERGORICALLY STATE ONE CAN LOSE HIS POSITION IN THE
BODY OF
CHRIST. This is not a matter of the opponents to eternal security
mis-interpretation of what is said, IT IS A MATTER OF WHERE YOU 'PLUG IT IN'
to the entire process of salvation. The Bible does not contradict itself. If
you hsve two seemingly OPPOSITE STATEMENTS, it is not a case that one is
right and the other is wrong, IT IS A CASE OF WHERE DOES ONE APPLY IT AND
TO
WHAT AREA OF OUR WALK TO MEET CHRIST! Scripture proves that eternal
security
is not only a fact, but a necessary ingredient to walking in total victory
over the world, as will be shown.

We will now look at the verses that speak of the book of life, and we will
see how all of this fits together. Once you grasp it, it becomes very clear
why the obtaining of AGAPE LOVE is an absolute requirement if one wants to
see heaven.

"He that OVERCOMETH, the same shall be

CLOTHED IN WHITE RAIMENT;

and I WILL NOT (I WILL NOT) BLOT HIS NAME

OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE.

BUT I WILL CONFESS HIS NAME BEFORE MY FATHER


AND BEORE HIS ANGELS" Revelation 3:5

Jesus ties BEING AN OVERCOMER to wearing the white robes of agape love, as
John did, and He says of this OVERCOMER, THAT HE WILL NOT
BLOT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE. That means that the ONE WHO
BECOMES REGENERATED, AND WHO OVERCOMES THE WORLD BY
WALKING THE NARROW WAY
TO LIFE CANNOT BE BLOTTED OUT OF THIS ' BOOK OF LIFE.' This book of life
is
different than the 'Lamb's Book of Life'

Here is why this must be true: It is only the overcomer who is not blotted
out of this book of life. That means there are other people WRITTEN IN THIS
BOOK WHOSE NAMES WILL BE BLOTTED OUT A name has to
be written there or it could NOT be blotted out! So, who then is going to be
blotted out from this book? ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT
OVERCOMERS! The book of life is a book in which all who are born on
planet earth ARE DUTIFULLY RECORDED BY THE ANGELS THAT
KEEP THE BOOKS. That means your name and my name and everyone we
know and don't know is listed in this heavenly book. THIS
BOOK OF LIFE IS THE BOOK OF HUMAN LIFE, OF HUMAN PHILEO LOVE.
This
will become very clear as we proceed.

"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 more 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..." Revelation 20:11, 12

We have to take a close look at this: there are TWO TYPES OF


BOOKS OPENED: ONE IS CALLED THE BOOK OF LIFE , THE
OTHER APPEARS TO BE A BOOK OF WORKS. In other words, all
of these people have a book of works, or a complete history of everything
they have ever done, thought and said. This is known as the
GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT. Every person here is going to
have a complete life review, and will be JUDGED OUT OF THOSE THINGS WRITTEN

IN THE BOOK OF WORKS. But we must ask what is the STANDARD GOD IS
GOING TO
USE TO JUDGE THEIR WORKS? WHAT IS HIS MEASURE?

"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 20:13-15)

Now this may sound confusing, but it is not if you will bring it all together. Christ said He
would NOT BLOT THE OVERCOMERS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE. ALL
OTHERS WILL HAVE THEIR NAME BLOTTED OUT. ANYONE AT ALL THAT IS
NOT AN OVERCOMER IS GOING TO BE DESTROYED AT THE GREAT WHITE
THRONE JUDGMENT.

Notice again that the dead are judged OUT OF THE BOOK OF WORKS. Their deeds
upon earth are going to be measured against THE STANDARD OF GOD. Then we find
what at first appears to be a contradiction; all those WHO ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE
BOOK OF LIFE ARE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. If all people are all
written in the book of life, then, how could anyone NOT BE THERE? The answer is what
Jesus said; HE WHO OVERCOMETH WILL NOT BE BLOTTED OUT OF THE
BOOK OF LIFE. The reason why all of these people are being judged ACCORDING TO
THEIR WORKS IS BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT OVERCOMERS. BECAUSE
THEY ARE NOT OVERCOMERS, THEY WILL BE BLOTTED OUT OF THE
BOOK OF LIFE. This judgement is extremely serious: IT IS THE JUDGMENT OF
THE ETERNALLY DAMNED.

The word 'works' here is 'ergon' and it means TO WORK, TO TOIL, TO DO, AN ACT,
DEEDS, DOING. This is clearly then a complete record of each human life. The issue of
sending al human soul to eternal ruin and destruction is something the Lord does not take
lightly. It is not His will that nay human being perish. The complete record, EVERY
SECOND OF TIME, EVERY DEED, EVERY THOUGHT, EVERY ACT IS KEPT
IN THE BOOKS. We would envision this as an INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL VIDEO
of everything ever done in that life. God is IN THESE BOOKS THAT WILL
EXEMPT THAT SOUL FROM ETERNAL RUIN. What is he looking for?

What God is searching for is the ACT OF ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST INTO THE
INNER CHAMBERS, INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES. Notice that there ARE TWO
BOOKS HERE; WORKS AND LIFE. Did Jesus overlook anyone? Is there one single
human soul that somehow slipped through the cracks and is here by mistake? Every
second of reviewed. They do not find this name in the book of life, because JESUS HAD
ALREADY BLOTTED IT OUT ONE THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE!

Do you understand this? The entire human race is written in the BOOK OF LIFE. Then
there are those who are covered by he WORK OF CHRIST. Those that OVERCAME are
NOT BLOTTED OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE WHEN CHRIST COMES TO
JUDGE THE WORLD. They are the ONLY ONES REMAINING N THE BOOK OF
'LIFE'. The LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE, and THE BOOK OF LIFE ARE NOW
IDENTICAL They remain identical for the 1000 year reign of Christ. At the last
resurrection, ONLY THE NAMES OF THOSE PROTECTED BY CHRIST ARE
LEFT IN THE BOOK OF LIFE.

Now comes the LAST AND FINAL RESURRECTION. THE BOOK OF LIFE IS
OPENED, THE BOOK OF WORKS IS OPENED. Anyone that is NOT WRITTEN IN
THE BOOK OF LIFE IS CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. Because ALL
THOSE WHO REJECTED CHRIST HAVE BEEN BLOTTED OUT BY CHRIST
ONE THOUSAND YEARS PRIOR, NOT ONE NAME IN THIS ERA OF TIME
WILL BE IN THE BOOK OF LIFE The only remaining book they wilL be in will be
the BOOK OF WORKS.

There is now nothing left but works. The works of these people, because they REFUSED
TO COME TO CHRIST AS HE DEMANDED THEY DO, AND BE COVERED BY HIS
AGAPE LOVE, must now be reviewed to see if they MEASURE UP TO GOD'S
STANDARD OF PURE AGAPE LOVE.

"If any man hear my words, and believe not, I JUDGE HIM NOT; FOR I CAME
NOT TO JUDGE THE WORLD, BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD.

HE THAT REJECTETH ME, AND RECEIVETH NOT MY WORDS, HATH ONE


THAT JUDGETH HIM: THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, THE SAME
SHALL JUDGE HIM AT THE LAST DAY." (John 12:47-48 )

Jesus says all those who rejected what Christ said will come under the JUDGMENT OF
THE WORD OF GOD. His words encompass the ENTIRE BIBLE, ALL OF
SCRIPTURE All mankind is going to be judged BY THE LAW. We know that what
stands behind the law is the GLORY AND RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD, WHICH
COMES FROM HIS INNER ESSENCE OF PURE AGAPE LOVE. The standard by
which this judgment is going to be done is the ABSOLUTE STANDARD OF PURE
100% AGAPE LOVE. They are going to be put to the agape love test. Each act, each so
called 'work' is held up to the agape love standard.

We know because of the fall that NO HUMAN BEING HAS AGAPE LOVE WITHIN
THEM. We know from experience that we cannot even love in our natural human phileo
love 100% of the time. These folks do not stand a chance. But God is not going to take
any chances, and He is going to determine how everyone measure up. DID THEY KEEP
THE LAW OF PURE AGAPE LOVE OR NOT?

"FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL KEEP THE WHOLE LAW, AND YET OFFEND IN
ONE POINT, HE IS GUILTY OF ALL. (James 2:10)

"Now we know that what things soever of law saith, it saith to them who are under
the law; that every mouth maybe stopped, and all the world may become guilty
before God."

"THEREFORE BY THE DEEDS OF THE LAW THERE SHALL BE NO FLESH


JUSTIFIED IN HIS SIGHT: FOR BY THE LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN."
(Romans 3: 19-20)

Jesus said the world that rejects Him shall be judged by the Word. Paul says they will be
judged by the LAW. GOOD DEEDS WILL NEVER JUSTIFY ONESELF BEFORE
GOD. It does not matter how many good deeds you do. YOU WILL NEVER BE
JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD. There is no living person who can measure up to the
standard of God. If you kept all the points of the law all of your life, and offended IN
EVEN ONE POINT, YOU ARE GUILTY BEFORE GOD AND MUST BE
CONDEMNED. We also know that Christ reduced ALL OF THE LAW DOWN TO
AGAPE LOVE. We therefore realize that keeping the law or doing good works will not
avail us of anything whatsoever.

This is why Paul said that UNLESS ONE HAS AGAPE LOVE HE WILL PROFIT
NOTHING WHATEVER. HE can have faith, belief, Holy Ghost power, give everything
he owns away, give his on life, and will still go into eternal ruin.

Those people that REJECT CHRIST AND HIS COMMANDS TO ENTER INTO THE
NEW COVENANT OF AGAPE LOVE BESTOWMENT have to stand before God on
their OWN MERITS. Their merit is their so called 'works'. They are in reality pitting of
their human works, which were done in PHILEO LOVE against THE AGAPE LOVE
OF GOD AND CHRIST. God is going to deal with them on a basis OF DEBT:

"Now to him that worketh IS THE REWARD NOT RECKONED OF GRACE, BUT
OF DEBT." (Romans4:4)

All human beings born on planet earth have TWO OPTIONS BEFORE THEM. They can
come to Christ via the strait gate and narrow way, and find HIM AND HIS AGAPE
LOVE, which is under GRACE, or they can opt to reject Christ and ATTEMPT
JUSTIFICATION BY BEING GOOD AND DOING GOOD DEEDS, which is 'law
keeping' or 'legalism'. If you 'work' for someone, and do 'work' for him, then he owes you
for the work done. Because the grace of God shown us through Christ was IGNORED,
these people then have only their deeds left. They are telling God he OWES THEM FOR
THEIR GOOD DEEDS.

The problem is, GOD DID NOT HIRE THEM. They were not under His employ. If God
went into His employment files and looked, He would find none of them that filled out
any work application. For example, let’s say you own an apple orchid. You go out and
hire some folks to help you pick the apples now that harvest has come. They will fill out
their papers, give you their social security numbers and you officially ACCEPT THEM
IN YOUR EMPLOY. You agree to pay them at the end of their time based upon whatever
you agreed to. Now let us suppose that another group of people WHO YOU KNOW
NOT, COMES AND PICKS YOUR APPLES, are you obligated to them in any way?
Must you pay them because they went out and did the work, even though you did not hire
them to do so? The answer is obvious, YOU ARE NOT UNDER ANY OBLIGATION
WHATEVER TO THEM.
What these people did whom you did not hire was attempt TO PUT YOU UNDER DEBT
TO THEM. But you ARE NOT IN DEBT TO THEM because they DID NOT COME
INTO YOUR HIRE IN THE CORRECT MANNER. They are out of luck, their work was
in vain. THEY END UP IN TOTAL LOSS. It is this way with the human race. They
attempt to justify themselves before God by a multitude of 'works', and they attempt to
put God IN A DEBT SITUATION. It does not work. God showed them HOW TO
ENTER INTO THE NEW COVENANT. They refused to do as he commanded them to
do.

God brought Christ into the world at a very important and very VISIBLE JUNCTURE
OF TIME. The Roman Empire was the largest empire the world had ever known. The
entire world knew all about Rome. By bringing Christ into the world at the APEX OF
POWER OF ROME, CHRIST WAS VISIBLE TO ALL. Jerusalem was a highly visible
city of the world. From Judea the gospel was spread to the whole world. The gospel tells
the world that Christ has come to redeem man from the chains of slavery. The gospel
ALSO TELLS MAN WHAT HE MUST DO TO PARTAKE OF THIS ACT OF
GOD. If we refuse to comply, then we CANNOT ENTER IN, GOOD WORKS, OR NO
GOOD WORKS, DEBT OR NO DEBT.

"Fear them not therefore: FOR THERE IS NOTHING COVERED, THAT SHALL
NOT BE REVEALED; AND HID THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN." (Matthew
10:26) What Christ was referring to is THE BOOKS OF WORKS. They are opened
before all, and the judgment of all is FROM WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS. If
human love is such a great thing, and if mankind is so 'essentially good' then why do we
have POLICE, JAILS, PRISONS, COURTS, GOVERNMENTS, WARS, MILITARY
MACHINES, ETC? If man is so good, why do we have all of this murder, rape, theft,
arson, beatings, torture and who knows what? Human love is going to be exposed for
what it is: SELF CENTERED, CORRUPT, MANIPULATIVE AND EVIL. When
God takes even the most noble of human deeds and applies them to His standard, they are
PITCH BLACK BY COMPARISON. That is why WORKS DO NOT AVAIL THE
HUMAN SOUL WHATEVER.

Entrance to heaven is not based upon 'works' of righteousness or 'works' of the law.
Entrance to heaven is based upon KEEPING THE SAYINGS OF JESUS AND
DOING THE WILL OF THE FATHER. That is in fact the definition of FAITH.
FAITH IS OBEDIENCE AND OBEDIENCE IS DOING WHAT YOU ARE TOLD
TO DO. IF YOU REFUSE TO DO WHAT YOU ARE TOLD, THEN YOU DO NOT
HAVE BIBLICAL FAITH. FOR YOU DID NOT BELIEVE GOD OR CHRIST
ENOUGH TO DO AS COMMANDED. You in fact, have no FAITH, and no real belief.
It is the work of the human being TO BELIEVE FROM HIS HEART OF HEARTS. The
strait gate and narrow way are the only method God gave to us so that we CAN
BELIEVE FROM OUR HEART OF HEARTS. If we refuse to comply, we may
believe as deeply as we wish IN THE SOUL, BUT IT WILL AVAIL US NOTHING.

If we examine works to PHILEO LOVE, we can then fully understand why the vast
majority of Christians and the entire Christ rejecting world goes into eternal ruin.
THEY SPEND ALL OF THEIR TIME IN PHILEO LOVE WORKS AND NEVER
WALK THE NARROW WAY TO FIND AGAPE LOVE AND 'REST' in GOD.

You will notice that there is a gigantic gulf between man and God and they are separated
by the narrow way. This is the only way listed, so it is the only way God gives us. All
mankind SPENDS THEIR TIME ON HUMAN PHILEO LOVE SIDE. THE RELATIVE
RIGHTEOUSNESS SIDE. Their works under phileo love may be astounding. They could
have flawless works, be utterly dedicated to others and finally give their lives for others.
Let's take a few examples to be sure we understand it.
Our first example will be a woman we call Sue. Sue from the time she was a child
LOVED OTHER PEOPLE. She worked hard and gave of everything she ever earned to
the good of others, and kept nothing for herself. Through the years her dedication to the
good of man and her unfailing love of others earned her a great admiration of the world.
Her flawless love of others finally obtained her the Nobel Peace Prize Award. She was
hailed over the world as the model example of the greatness and power of love. Her
dedication and zeal were the subject of magazine articles and books. She became a role
model for many others who would follow her.

She finally grows old and dies. The angels of heaven come and take her spirit body
before the Lord. She is positive, absolutely certain that her standing before the Lord is
good. After all, she had done everything the Lord had told her to do. Much to her
surprise. SHE IS REJECTED OUT OF HAND, SHE STANDS STUNNED. God
wanted to know what she had done about Jesus. He wanted to know where was her
AGAPE LOVE SPIRIT, HER UNION WITH CHRIST? She did not have the agape love
robes of Jesus Christ. Jesus said unto her, "Get away from me, you who work iniquity".
The Holy angels are summoned, and she is lead to the gates of hell, where she is
taken and chained in the fires until the Great White Throne Judgment.

Sue's problem was that she did not LAY HOLD OF AGAPE LOVE. She was working
under the delusion that her own great love for man WAS THE LOVE OF GOD, AND
THAT IT WAS WHAT GOD DEMANDED OF HER. Had she read the Bible, had she
studied it at length, she would have known that she was in grave danger with her love
theology. So it was for the 'many'. ALL HER WORKS, ALL OF HER
RIGHTEOUSNESS WAS ON THE RELATIVE RIGHTEOUSNESS SCALE OF HER
WORKS WERE DONE IN PHILEO LOVE. She never came to know or to understand
the mystery of God's Agape Love.

Our next example is a man named Bob. He did both good and bad deeds. When he was
younger he got into a lot of trouble with the authorities and had to spend some time in
community service. In his middle years, Bob got involved with some real evil people, and
was responsible for several people getting murdered. He was sent up for life. While in
prison, Bob began to really examine his life, and how it had all been a total waste. He
knew he had done real wrong, and felt real guilty over it. While in prison he was given a
Bible by the Gideons. Faithfully he read it night and day, trying to find the answer to life
and everything about it. He became convinced that Jesus was telling the truth, and in
silent prayer one night, he decided he was going to find the truth of this Jesus, and he
decided that no matter what, he was going to lay hold of the 'truth'.

He asked the Lord to show him the truth. He became a fanatic at Scripture study. He read
it, and then he mediated on it. Bit by bit the Holy Spirit began to work on Bob and gently
brought him along the narrow way. In the course of the next three years, Bob was brought
down via the power of the Holy Spirit. He was convicted of sin, righteousness and
judgment. Bob knew he was dead inside. The convictions of this death grew as time
passed. Finally Jesus came to him. "Your trouble Bob, is that you do not have agape
love". Jesus gently said. Bob readily confessed it was a truth. Jesus showed him in the
spirit what agape love was. He looked into the depth of it, the height of it and the breath
of it. Jesus said, "will you agape love?" Bob struggled for a moment and finally said 'yes'
Lord". At that moment, Jesus entered into Bob's Holy Of Holies and THE UNION WAS
ACCOMPLISHED

Bob died and went to heaven. Jesus was waiting for him, "well done, thou good and
faithful servant, enter thou in to the JOY OF THY LORD."

The difference between Sue and Bob WAS THE AGAPE LOVE ISSUE. Bob
ADMITTED HE WAS LOST, ADMITTED HE WAS A SINNER, ADMITTED HE
DESERVED DEATH. Over the course of three long years, Bob proved his faith in Christ
was genuine as God tried it in the fire. He did as Christ commanded, and HE
CONTINUED IN HIS DOCTRINE UNTIL HE FOUND THE TRUTH; AGAPE LOVE,
AND THAT TRUTH, SET HIM FREE. Bob allowed the Holy Spirit to convict him of sin
and judgment to his heart of hearts, and he never turned back from the REBUKE AND
THE REPROOF OF THE LORD. Bob knew that a mental commitment was not enough,
he knew there was MORE, MUCH MORE. Sue on the other hand would never ADMIT
SHE WAS A LOST SINNER. SHE NEVER WOULD ADMIT THAT SHE DESERVED
ANYTHING BUT LIFE. Her faith was in her works and in her own CAPACITY TO
PHILEO LOVE.

The GRAND DELUSION is therefore that THE PHILEO LOVE OF MAN IS THE
LOVE OF GOD. In conclusion then, we have found that the fall of man brought him
into utter subjection and control by Satan and his demons. It brought man to utter
destitution within. He died a spiritual death, he lost agape love, and he is in very deep
trouble with the Lord for his actions. We found that through genetics and the DNA code
that the sin nature is passed down to all men and women via the male sperm. All men are
thus condemned to eternal ruin. There is only ONE ESCAPE, JESUS CHRIST. We
must all, one by one, come to the LIVING CHRIST, and we can only come to him
VIA THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. He gave us no options. He gave us
no exceptions. ALL MUST COME THE SAME WAY, FOR GOD IS NOT A
RESPECTER OF PERSONS.

Will you come? Will you submit your spirit and soul to the conviction of the Holy
Spirit? Will you enter the strait gate? Will you walk the narrow way? Or will you
allow you own or your denominational theology keep you from doing it? The choice
is yours, the penalties for disobedience is more severe than you can imagine. I urge
you to consider this carefully!
