The Book of Life: A Personal Reflection

The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and His angels.
Revelation 3:5

While I was in a coma, (Oct 2009) I saw the Book of Life.

I was floating in space, but I could not see the earth.  I knew that I had left it!  I looked and I saw very bright stars.

As I looked, I saw a faint outline of the Book of Life.  I knew in my soul what it was right away.  It was huge about six miles high and about one mile wide.

As I looked, the bottom right hand corner curled up and in slow motion the page turned.  I could not see the hand that turned it.  The page took awhile as there was a long wave on the outer edge.  As it turned I felt a breeze.

As I looked at the new page I saw many small lights – millions of small lights.  Each light was a soul written in the Book of Life.  I felt that I was being introduced to everyone written in the Book andindeed the whole company of heaven.  Now, here is the thing, through revelation I knew each light!  The light was the name, the image, the works, the being, and the soul of everyone in the book.

Another page turned and there were more – millions more.  It took quite awhile for each page to turn.  As I looked at each speck of light I knew that person.  Page after page was turned.  Then after a very long time they stopped turning.  Then the edge of the page just quietly blended into the night sky.

I saw the Book of Life and had been introduced to the entire company of heaven!

When I now look at a clear night sky I feel like I know.  I have to say it is a fearful – overwhelming feeling.  As I was dying I was getting to know my neighbors in heaven.

Rest in peace dear souls, until we meet again on “that” day…
