Is there a difference between The Book Of Life and The Lamb’s Book Of Life?
“Your name of your first nature, was born, and put in a Book of life. All your deeds was wrote in it, too. Everything you done under that nature was put in a Book, called the Book of life. You notice, in Daniel, when he come to "the Ancient of Days, Whose hair was as white as wool. Ten thousand times ten thousands came with Him, to minister to Him; the--the Bride. And then the books were opened." "And another Book was opened, which was the Book of Life." See? There is saints already there, the Church, the Bride. "Another Book was opened, which was the Book of Life." [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“The Bible said, "Judgment was set, and the Books were opened." Is that right? Books of sinners. "And another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life, and every man was judged thus." Is that right? And who was doing the judging? Jesus and the saints. He said, "He came and ministered unto the Ancient of Days Whose hair is like wool." And said, "Ten thousand times ten thousands come with Him, and ministered to Him in the judgment." Here Jesus returns as King and Queen; the wedding's over, and He's married. Here's King and Queen standing here. And there stands that sanctified bunch; God said, "Stand to My right side here." That's the Book was opened, was sinners, "Get over on My left." Here's the ones that had their names written in the Lamb's Book of Life.” [Questions And Answers On Genesis, Jeffersonville IN 53-0729]

"Brother Branham, is the Lamb's Book of Life and the Book of Life the same Book?" Sure. See? 'Cause that's where... All redemption's wrote in this Book. See? Their names are in... You say, "Well, the... Our name's put on the Lamb's Book of Life, Brother Branham. I--I got it put on the other night." No, you didn't. No, you didn't. You just found out it was on there the other night, see, because their names were written before the foundation of the world. See? That's... It's all the same Book.” [Questions And Answers On The Seals, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324m]

“At the Judgment, the judgment was set, "And the Books were opened, the wicked; and another Book, which is the Book of Life, it was opened," and there was the Bride there to judge it. See? See? "Another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life." That's the sheep on one side, and the goats on the other. See, the people that died back yonder, that never had the opportunity, they'll be the ones to be separated.” [Three Kinds Of Believers, Jeffersonville IN 63-1124e]

“Was Judas Iscariot's name blotted out of the Lamb's Book of Life, or was it ever on it?" Yes, it was on it and was blotted out. See? 'Cause in Matthew the 10th chapter, Jesus called Judas and all the rest of them, and gave them power against unclean spirits. They went out casting out devils, and Jesus said, "I even saw Satan falling from heaven." Is that right? And they come back, all those disciples together, and they was rejoicing; and He said, "Rejoice not that your--the devils is subject unto you, but rejoice that your name is written on the Book of Life ." See? That's right. And Judas was right with them. See? So remember, at the judgment, watch, at the judgment seat, "The judgment was set; the Books were open; and another Book was opened, which was the Book of Life, and every man was judged thus." [Questions And Answers, Jeffersonville IN 64-0823m]

“Your old Book is gone, with your old union. Now, your name in your old, in your... has been transferred. Now, you say, "Do you mean to tell me that my old Book..." God put it in the Sea of His Forgetfulness. You stand perfectly before God. Now, your name is now in the new Book; not the Book of Life, but the Lamb's Book of Life, what the Lamb redeemed. Not the old Book of your natural union, but your new, Bride. Hallelujah! Your new Life is in the  Lamb's Book of Life, your marriage certificate, hallelujah, where your true Eternal germ, from the beginning, takes hold. Now you're not only forgiven, but you're justified.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“There is your two Books. One of them is the Lamb's Book of Life. Your name on There is predestinated on There. It can't go, because you can no more take that away than nothing, see, because it was foreordained to be on There. But the regular Book of Life, can take that off at any time. See? You don't repent, it's off, anyhow, 'cause you're going to stand the Judgment. The Bride don't even stand the Judgment; goes in the Rapture.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“The Baptists believe there's two separate Books. And in one way it is two separate Books , and another way it isn't two separate Books. I'm two separate people... I'm body and soul and spirit, three separate people, but I'm... only one makes me as a being. There's only real one Book of Life. say, "Now, that's a wheat laying there."

Like there was one germ of--of the wheat that come up through the stalk, and went through the tassel, and out through the husk, and into the wheat; all the way along there, you It isn't the wheat, it's the stalk, but together it's the wheat. See, it's the wheat because it's all one stalk, but the wheat is what you're talking about, the grain at the end of it. The others was a carrier, it must perish. And that's the one--one place sounds like you can have your name taken off the Lamb's Book of Life, and the other place you can't do it. So, that's what it is. It's all in that great revelation there, which was made known during the time of the Seven Seals.” [Works Is Faith Expressed, Shreveport LA 65-1126]

“The Calvinists do not see that. They see in this verse strong consolation given to the suffering, burdened saints, that no matter how evil are the times, how terrible the persecution, because the overcomer is one, "who believeth that Jesus is the Christ," he will not have his name removed from that Book. Some also say that this "Book of Life" is not the "Lamb's Book of Life." But as usual, when one regards a verse superficially, he comes up with a superficial understanding.” [The Sardisean Church Age 65-1204]

“To begin with, there is no basis for the claims that the "Lamb's Book of Life" is not the same as the "Book of Life." The Book of Life might be called the Lamb's Book of Life, or Christ's Book of Life, or even Thy Book of Life of the Living. Only names are written in it. [Missing Text] You can see that though there are other Books mentioned, there is always the reference to ONE Book containing names. In the Revelation it is called the "Lamb's Book of Life," or the "Book of Life." [The Sardisean Church Age 65-1204]
“Romans 4:8, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." But indeed she shall be with Him in His throne of judgment, judging the world and even angels. Her name (each of her members) was written in a section of the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world. Secondly, there is another class. Their names are also in the Book of Life and they will come up in the second resurrection. Such are the foolish virgins and the righteous as are spoken of in Matthew 25. In this class also are those who do not worship the beast or become involved in the antichrist system but die for their faith even though they are not in the bride, not having been born again. But they will come up in the second resurrection and go into eternal Life. Thirdly, there are the borderline Christians such as we saw in Israel coming out of Egypt. These had their names in the Book of Life and their works written in the Books. These having failed to obey God and being void of the Spirit, though even the signs and wonders were amongst them, will have their names removed from the Book of Life. Amongst this group will be the ones like Judas who though entirely void of the Spirit, but are religious, will have manifestation in their lives, and though on the Books were not the elected IN HIM. Such also as Balaam will be in that group. Fourth and finally are the ones whose names have never been or will ever be written on the Books.” [The Sardisean Church Age 65-1204]
“Thus if God has so designed that there be those whose names are placed in a section of the Lamb's Book of Life and cannot be erased for they are the names of His bride, then we must accept that. If it also states that there are those whose names were placed in the record of the Book of Life, but in the foreknowledge of God they were to fall and have their names removed we must accept that. And if there are those whose names were NEVER placed upon a record of Life, we must accept that, also. And if there are those who will enter into Life eternal after the White Throne judgment solely on the grounds of being good and kind and just to the elect of God who are His brethren, then we cannot but accept that. for who knoweth the mind of the Lord that he should instruct Him? Rather let us be subject in faith to Him Who is our Father and live.” [The Sardisean Church Age 65-1204]
Bible Scriptures: “I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellow laborers, whose names are in the book of life.” [Philippians 4:3] “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.” [Revelation 3:5]  “All that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”[Rev. 13:8]  “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” [Rev. 17:8] “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.” [Rev. 20:12] “Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” [Rev. 20:15] “There shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.” [Rev. 21:27]  “If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” [Rev. 22:19]
