Book of Life

This is the story of a brother
Who slept and woke up in forever land
He looked around nothing’s familiar
He wondered how he got to be there
He took a walk around the city
And saw this brick house with a small door
He walked into the room and saw a man in white
Must be an angel so he said:

“Mr. Angel I’m a stranger…”
“… Don’t know what’s going on, the last
thing I remember was I slept last night”
This is a border town that takes you
where you get a crown
Must have heard of Heaven where you came from
Only those whose name I find written in
this book of life,
Will forever be in paradise

Chorus:
Is your name in this book of life?
Is your name in this book of life yeah
Is your name in this book of life?
Is your name in this book of life yeah

Flipping the pages of this great book
This brother gave a cursory gaze
He saw the names of Prophets, Saints and Martyrs
Who kept the faith and won a race
But he said “Mr. Angel, where is my name?”

“Can you tell me what is going wrong?…”
“…I’m a pillar in my local church; give the
offerings and the tithes,”
“… Feed the poor and have myself a good name”

Chorus:
Is my name in this book of life?
Is my name in this book of life yeah
Tell me is my name in this book of life?
Is my name in this book of life yeah

Unforgiveness lurks within your heart
Some folks that you will never let go
Little foxes and secret faults
Will spring surprises on that final day.
(Oh…)

So much for this wonder brother
What about you? What about me?
Let him who thinks that he stands
Let him take heed lest he fall
Only the pure in heart will see Jesus
Those whose garments glow with purity

Chorus:
Is your name in that book of life?
Is your name in that book of life yeah
Is your name in that book of life?
Tell me is your name in that book of life yeah
Think about it.

    This song just ministers to me in just a very deep way. I remind myself to daily live a repented life. Let him that stands take heed lest he fall. Hmmm…Unforgiveness, Little foxes and secret faults…it saved me one day when I was at work just feeling oppressed and helpless…I got so angry and stressed out I immediately caught a headache..suddenly this song welled up inside me and I was like…Jesus forgive me..I’m angry at the very people I am praying for salvation for and if Jesus was to crack the sky in that minute would I make it in. I repented so fast..needless to say headache left immediately. I got my heart right with God. I have to daily crucify this flesh and lay down my life for the sake of friends. I love God. And I want to make certain I and my family and the entire world (if possible) spend eternity with Him. Because this God is too good o. Book of life song just keeps things in perspective for me…especially when I watch it with the miming. I love the Mimes…with the three young men in black. I am planning to show it at one of our God’s Girls session. I pray God’s protection over you, your mind, body and soul so that you can continue to bring unadulterated Worship to our God who deserves true worship in spirit and in truth….Godly worship…cause now most people don’t even know what godliness looks like any more. Remain blessed.

    this song got me into the body of Jesus fully almost 3years ago, and I’m happy to know this man called Nathaniel. God bless you sir
