But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Has this happened to you? You get to a hotel at the end of a long trip only to find the front desk has no record of your reservation. Or perhaps an airline bungled a flight reservation for you, or a tour company lost your record. A trip can quickly become a nightmare. It’s always best to confirm our reservations and have the paperwork in hand.

Heaven is only accessible with confirmed reservations, for those whose names are prerecorded in the Book of Life. When we receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, our names are recorded, as if in blood. Jesus promised, “This is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of all those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day. For My Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day” (John 6:39-40 NIV).
Our Lord will never lose our reservations, but it’s vital to know we’ve trusted in Him for salvation. Make sure your reservation is secure in Him.
A person’s eternal destiny … is based on whether or not his name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
