Chapter XXII

God’s Library Used for His Judgment

There are three Books that are listed in the Bible as pertaining to God and His plans for His creation. The main Book of course is the Protestant Bible. This is God’s way of chronicling {the recording and narrating} of His successive ages of events in time, place, and history. The Protestant Bible has a total of 66 Books {39 Books for the Old Testament and 27 Books for the New Testament} written by 35 known authors and 5 unknown for 40 total human authors. Some guestimates go as high as 80 human authors because some experts believe many Books have multiple authors. In reality, no man is the original author of any Book in the Bible but rather God inspired man to “write down His Word” as he was inspired by God the Holy Spirit Who is Its real author.

2 Peter 1:21 For no prophecy ever originated because some man willed it [to do so — it never came by human impulse], but men spoke from God who were borne along (moved and impelled) by the Holy Spirit. AMP

2 Timothy 3:16-17 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), 17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. AMP

What most Christians do not know is the “original manuscript” for the Bible is found in the Second Heaven as God has named all of the stars with the Gospel Message. Let the following Scriptures paint a picture for you showing the Ingenuity, Awesomeness, and Magnitude of God in preserving and displaying His Word to the world and the universe. There are several books written by men using the God given names of some of the stars to support the Gospel Message written in the stars – “The Gospel in the Stars,” “The Witness of the Stars,” “God’s Voice in the Stars.”

What is in the Second Heaven that has significance to God? Could His Word be established there forever?:

Psalms 119:89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [stands firm as the heavens]. [Ps 89:2; Matt 24:34, 35; 1 Peter 1:25.] AMP

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever {in the Second Heaven}. [James 1:10, 11; 1 Peter 1:24, 25.] AMP

1 Peter 1:25 But the Word of the Lord (divine instruction, the Gospel) endures forever {in the Second Heaven}. And this Word is the good news {Gospel Message} which was preached to you. [Isa 40:6-9.] AMP

How can God’s Word stand in the Second Heaven forever? We know there are trillions and trillions of stars in the Second Heaven {could it be a decillion – a number with 33 zeros?}. What does Scripture mean when it says that He calls them ALL by name? What might their names be?:

Isaiah 40:25-26 To whom then will you liken Me, that I should be equal to him? says the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes on high and see! Who has created these {the stars}? He Who brings out their host {the stars} by number and calls them all by name; through the greatness of His might and because He is strong in power, not one is missing or lacks anything. AMP

Psalms 147:4 He determines and counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names. AMP

Psalms 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth [the total of the full meaning of all Your individual precepts]; and every one of Your righteous decrees endures forever {in the Second Heaven}. AMP

We have a text that illustrates for us how we receive the Gospel Message from the stars. Think about this!:
Psalms 19:1-6 THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament {the expanse of space} shows and proclaims His handiwork. [Rom 1:20, 21.] 2 Day after day {the heaven} pours forth speech, and night after night {the stars} shows forth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard. 4 Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world {because their names in whatever languages are known to the peoples of the earth. It is like a friend of yours walking some distance from you. You recognize him/her by sight, but they are far enough away that you cannot verbally communicate with them, but you still know the name of that person by sight – you know who that person is! The same with the stars. They cannot verbally communicate with you but you know their name by sight.}. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun {Son}, [Rom 10:18.] 5 Which is as a bridegroom {John 3:29} coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course. 6 Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it {God’s Gospel Message is solidified in the Second Heaven and will stand forever!}. AMP

This last Scripture is really interesting to me! We might think we know a little something about angels but this guy will be of a size beyond our belief! This angel will be towing a banner in the second heaven that will contain many stars – enough to convey the Gospel Message to the peoples around the world. God is REAL and His Gospel Message is REAL also!!! He has placed His Gospel Message in the stars so that man cannot alter that message.

Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying in midair {mid-heaven/ Second Heaven – NASU; NKJV; KJV}, with an eternal Gospel (good news) to tell to the inhabitants of the earth, to every race and tribe and language and people {AMEN and AMEN!!!}. AMP

And man thinks he can fool God!!! He has a manuscript for His Word that no man can tamper with. Isn’t God just plain AWESOME?!!!

The second Book is called the “Book of Life” {Also known as the Lamb’s Book of Life – Revelation 21:27} which I believe God wrote BEFORE anything was and contains His thoughts and plans for ALL of the names of EVERY human being who was to be conceived only through natural human coitus. When God’s judgment comes and the Book of Life is opened for God to use, it will then contain ALL of the names of the Saints who are truly “saved.”

Revelation 3:5 Thus shall he who conquers (is victorious) {redeemed adopted children of God} be clad in white garments, and I will not erase or blot out his name from the Book of Life; I will acknowledge him [as Mine] and I will confess his name openly before My Father and before His angels. [Ps 69:28; Dan 12:1.] AMP

Revelation 20:15 And if anyone’s [name] was not found recorded in the Book of Life, he{/she} was hurled into the lake of fire. AMP

I would like to add that ALL of creation was subject to death and decay when man sinned. Now with man’s complete redemption, creation will be restored to its original glory:

Romans 8:18-21 [But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! 19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]. 20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it — [yet] with the hope [Eccl 1:2.] 21 That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God’s children. AMP

The last of the three Books is God’s “Book of Deeds” which contains just what Its title states – the deeds {words, thoughts, and actions} of ALL peoples whether “saved” or “unsaved” whoever have lived in the world. Their “deeds” will be rewarded by Jesus Christ when they die.
Matthew 12:36-37 But I {Jesus speaking} tell you, on the day of judgment men will have to give account for every idle (inoperative, nonworking) word they speak. 37 For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced. AMP

Proverbs 20:11 Even a child is known by his acts, whether [or not] what he does is pure and right. AMP

Romans 2:6 For He {Jesus Christ} will render to every man {or woman their judgment} according to his works [justly, as his deeds deserve]: [Ps 62:12.] AMP

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing]. AMP

There are other Books that some believe may belong in God’s library, but I believe these are the three of importance!
