Overview

This guide focuses on our salvation and solving the problems in today's world. Guided by the spirit of truth in his research and writing, author Bernard Wilson relies on the Scriptures as the basis for the information that he offers in Book of Life.

Singling out two primary verses as sources for understanding how to unlock the mystery of the Bible, Wilson explains that we need to accept all scriptures as being true and cautions that it is not possible to read Scriptures consecutively. Instead, they should be pieced together by the spirit of truth. We need to realize we're not the first era of humans to exist on this planet, and we're not likely to be the last. Most generations before us chose a democracy for their way of governing believing it would be fair and all citizens would have an equal chance. They failed, however, to consider greed that led to love of money and lust for power.

Book of Life shows the true way to be saved and how to prevent man from destroying himself-a moneyless culture that has been proven effective for millions of years is the only answer.

CHAPTER 1

The Book of Life is a subsidiary of the Bible, for this book was written by the spirit and was sanctioned by the Lord. Mans failure to accept Spiritual knowledge and by his determination of solving our problems by the monetary system, can only lead to failure. Worldly knowledge has never succeeded in the past history of man, and that goes back long before Adam and Eve. Proof of this is by the Spirit of Truth, for this spirit contains all the history of man.

The Book of Life will show the only true way to be saved, and that will involve a moneyless culture. A moneyless culture was devised by the Lord millions of years ago and it has proven worthy for those above.

The destiny of our society is the Family of God and only by the Lord's plan is that possible. This book is also on the Spirit that the Lord pours out in the last days to prevent man from destroying himself, and that will be understood by reading this book.

The Book of Life appears in two places in the scriptures that I'm aware of. Revelation 20-12; "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened, and another book was open, 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". And in Revelation 20-15; "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire". We learn from this that we're all to be judged by what is written in this book. The lake of fire will be explained later in detail.

The next two scriptures will show where the writer acquires his knowledge and authority to write the Book of Life. John 14-17; "Even the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not neither knoweth him, but you know him for he dewelleth with you and shall be in you". Jesus said in John 16-13; "However, when he, the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you into all truth, for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak, and he will show you the things to come". These scriptures are essential to make the writing of the Book of Life possible. It also gives the writer knowledge on the future and that will qualify him to put all things in order as it says in Matthew 17-11; "Elias truly shall first come and restore all things." This is very critical, Revelation 22-6; "And He said unto me, 'these sayings are faithful and true and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done." We know those from above are often referred to as Angels. And the Lord has sent His chosen Angel to write the Book of Life to show His servants the things that must be done shortly. This will be better understood by reading this book.

It's important that we understand Timothy 1-3; "All scriptures is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine for report, for correction, and instructions". That tells us all scriptures are true and they can be used to instruct and that will be brought out.

Now for a greater understanding of the scriptures take Isaiah 28-10; "For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little". You can't read the scriptures consecutively and understand their true meaning. The arrangement of the scriptures is by the Spirit of Truth. The way this was accomplished will be understood by reading this book.

The greatest source of all divine knowledge is the Spirit of Truth and this Spirit confirms no currency system has ever succeeded, in the past history of man. That will be explained in greater detail in this book.

The way this book was written, was by communicating to the Trinity by the Spirit. The material in this book is not of a worldly knowledge, rather it's spiritual. The greatest benefit to our society is the absence of wars, military, prison, and the poor.

I will show briefly why the Book of Life was written. First we should realize we're not the first era of humans to exist on this planet and we're not likely to be the last. Most generation before us chose a democracy for their way of governing feeling it would be fair and all having equal chance. But they have failed to consider greed that led to love of money, and lust for power. This system has generated a greater portion of our political corruption.

Yet our administrators are determined to maintain this democratic system in spite of the greed, lust and corruption it has created. We need a leader who has the capacity and the courage to lead our way out of this forsaken mess. For this society will be in jeopardy as long as worldly knowledge is in control of our destiny.

It can be better illustrated another way. Suppose we were part of a crew on a war vessel and during an encounter with the enemy the ship was damage to where it was sinking fast. If we fail to abandon this ship, it would mean our certain death.

Now for a comparison, take the uncontrollable debt. This debt has grown to where we can no longer pay the debt and sustain the needs of our society. Yet, the greatest threat to our society is global warming, and if we fail to address this problem it's capable of making this planet uninhabitable. The weakened economy and the high cost to stop global warming will make this beyond our ability to solve this problem. That's why there's a need to abandon this system, for our lives should be of a greater value than all our wealthy. and money.

The reason for writing this book is to show the true way to be saved and to prevent man from destroying himself. A moneyless culture is the only answer and it has proven effective for millions of years.

And this is mainly what this book is all about.

CHAPTER 2

Salvation Is According To The Laws of God


To know our destiny, we first need to know why we were created. It wasn't by mere chance that we were created on this planet. God provided through Adam and Eve. The purpose was to produce man in God's image to become part of the Family of God. The Family of God has earned their right to that Heavenly Paradise by their obedience to God's Laws. Man's failure to accept God's Laws has led to our worldly crises and the chapters that follow will show how this will need to be changed to make our salvation possible.

The Laws of God are found throughout the Prophets. Still we have failed to follow those laws as it says in Daniel 9-10; "Neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the Prophets." We have ignored those laws and followed the course set forth by man, which has led to our present worldly crises. It says in Proverb 11-4; "Riches profit not in the day of the wrath of the Lord, but righteousness delivereth from death." No amount of money can protect anyone from God wrath.

If we accept the Laws of God, it could lead our way to that Heavenly Paradise, as it has for the Family of God.

The monetary system has brought on a variety of commerce. Then as wealth increased so has crime. By the increasing of crime, it has required additional prison space at a towering cost. Then by the increasing of the criminal activity many turned to alcohol or drugs, making their lives a slave to their habit.

We learn by the Spirit of Truth, a democratic system has been tried many times in the past before this world was created and it has consistently failed. The Spirit of Truth is our greatest sources of all divine knowledge and the history of man.

Why is the Congress so determined to preserve this system? It has never proven worthy in all the history of man. We need to drop our superior attitude and resort to a plan that has succeeded, before time runs out.

The Book of Life will need to be published in the last days. The reason is after man has exhausted his efforts to solve our financial crisis and has failed, they'll likely be faced with a hostile environment and they should be willing to consider an alternative plan that has proven worthy.

Through misguidance, our extravagance has grown over the years and so has the misuse of our resources. There's an increase of chaos and corruption, which is ungodly. We must reform but not to be deceived by those whose philosophy is according to this world. For where there is envy, strife, crime, wars and division among men there can be no peace.

Our lives are only temporal, it's somewhat like a vapor, once you see it, and next it's gone. This is noticeable as the years become many and looking back, it seems like only yesterday. It's the same with our redemption. Too many have put off for tomorrow, now time is fading. Salvation is important and time is getting to be a factor if were to be saved, we need to take heed to God's word.

Because of man's chosen ways, the calamity has grown over the years. If we continue down this same path it could lead to a nuclear conflict or pollution that is capable of destroying our very existence. Yes, man is now capable of destroying himself. However, the Lord is not willing that we should all perish, but we need to accept God's word as it is written in the Book of Life. Nor will Christ be returning to save us, as so many believe he will be, man will need to save himself.

By the Lord's plan, a moneyless culture all financial institutions will no longer have a purpose. Just feature how many there are throughout this world and that will include all banks.

Then visualize the expensive structure, supplies, huge inventory of equipment and personnel which would run into millions. That is enough to stagger the mind, yet there is more. Financial institutions are but a small portion of that total waste. Insurance would no longer be required, eliminating one of the greatest drags to our economy.

The Stock Exchange with its elaborate system, equipment, supplies, real estate and personnel is another waste of our resources. Advertising, IRS, many retail outlets and many government agencies will have no further purpose. Competition would cease to exist, allowing for better quality with less waste.

Ft. Knox, where our gold supply is stored, is another waste of our resources. A precious metal like gold would be more useful as a consumer product, than for a monetary evaluation of our wealth. To maintain Ft. Knox it takes expensive surveillance equipment and there is a ten thousand man army present there. To operate the vaults a large assortment of personnel is needed.

We have the US Mint which is a great waste. The mint depends upon the mining of the ore and to be process. The mint uses press and stamping machines to form all size of coins.

It's then shipped to FRS where it is distributed to all banks under their control. This is done by armored trucks with security guards. By the time it gets to the consumer, there's a tremendous waste and that does not include the paper money. .

In a moneyless culture all office space in the high raise structure used for business will no longer be required. That will eliminate a great portion of our energy loss. By man returning to the soil, it will eliminate the huge traffic jams. Most cities will become desolate, and could be similar to a community. There are still other ways we are wasting energy, and they will be taken up as we go along.

If we're to achieve a Godly society, we need to understand, respect and go according to the Lord's plan, which has proven worthy. The conversion to His plan will not be easy, especially for the wealthy. For most wealthy are accustomed to a superior lifestyle. The Lord created all to be equal, for we're all the children of God, and His plan should be our objective, if we're to achieve that Heavenly Paradise.

This system has articulated our finances resulting in this extremely high debt and the debt to a greater portion of our citizenry. Unless we can find a way to over come our calamity, this system will fail, as it has in the past history of man. We're shown throughout this book on how we are to be saved, we need to stop wasting our time on a system that is doomed to failure and concentrate on a plan that has been proven worthy for millions of years.

The soul is man's greatest gift, but we're wasting too much time on daily routines and spending too little on divine instruction. Were now reaching a point of massive devastation, evilness, crime, wars, that has causing excessive anxiety. Then, coupled with the worldly financial woes, our composure will soon be exhausted. Our failure is the monetary system has taken precedent over the Lord's plan. We need to have a good look at the Lord's plan then we should realize how important it is for our salvation.

As the true Gospel has been hidden, most do not know our true identity. To know our identity we first need to know our lineage. While Jesus was in Jerusalem, there were only the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and part of the Levites. The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom were taken captive by the Assyrians many years prior.

It wasn't the tribe of Judah or Benjamin who lost their true identity, for no matter where they would go, they were easily known by their religious belief and by keeping the true Sabbath on Saturday. The ten tribes did loose their identity and were dispersed throughout the world. The source of this information was taken mostly from the late W. Armstrong published books, and this can be found in the scriptures.

The ten tribes after their captivity would immigrate mainly to Northern Europe, except the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, most of which would go west by north into the isles of the sea. That would prove later to be Ireland and the British Isles.

The key to understanding our genealogy will come through the birthright inheritance, which was handed down from Abraham to Isaac and Jacob. When Jacob was old and near his death, he bestowed the birthright upon the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh. They not only inherit the birthright but they would become the greatest of all the tribes of Israel. Ephraim would become the greatest and would become a Commonwealth of Nations. England at one time had Colonies that extended around the world, and that should identity Ephraim.

The descendants of Manasseh would separate from Ephraim and became a great single Nation, the USA. There can be no doubt on our identity that dates back to the Manasseh tribe. Most of the Immigration since has been of the tribe of Manasseh, for the Lord said "He would sieve them out not leaving one by the wayside."

The information above will be most valuable to the future of our world society, as will be seen later. The true test is found in Matthew 10-5; Jesus said; "Go not into the ways of the Gentiles and into any city of the Samarian enter ye not, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel". This will not include the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, for they were in Jerusalem at this time. That will make the USA important. We're not only part of the twelve tribes of Israel, but were part of God's chosen children.

Most are guilty of judging the Lord's temperament, and can not conceive the Lord destroying the ungodly and we're all ungodly. The scriptures say "For if God spared not the Angels that sinned, but cast them down into hell to be reserved for judgment." The Lord is firm on His treatment of the ungodly.

Now a few prophesize that are likely to take place in these latter days. In Revelations the second angel sounded, "As if it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea." Then in Matthew it says; "earthquakes in diver places".

According this publication read, the earth each year in November starts through a large Asteroid Belt, taking three months to pass through. That will increase the chances of the earth being struck by an asteroid or meteorite shower.

There can be no doubt on our disobedience to God's Laws, so the wrath will occur.

As prophesized it will cause a third of the tress and grass to burn. Most likely, the fires that have been occurring in California and other areas marks the beginning of this prophesy.

Next is "asteroid that hits the sea." An asteroid is composed of molten rock, but the startling fact here is the size, described as a great mountain, We need to know the implications of an object of that magnitude burning and traveling thousands of miles per hour hitting the sea? The temperature and speed will continue to increase as it enters the earth atmosphere.

It will displace billions of gallons of sea water and would vaporize on impact. As the vapor cooled and condensed, lengthy rain, and flooding would occur for hundreds of miles from the point of impact.

There will be a great tidal wave, "If a six mile diameter asteroid hit the Gulf of Mexico, a tidal wave would be driven away from the point of impact, and computer models reveal a tsunami could reach as far inland as Kansas City."

As a result of an asteroid hitting the sea, "A third of the creatures in the sea will have died, and a third of the ships would be destroyed". The ships and lives lost are not the only concern. We need to consider our reliance on the sea as a source of food supply would diminish and could contribute to a famine.

With this mass of molten rock contacting the bottom of the sea, what would result? From this publication, "depending on the geographic location, this could set off a chain of earthquakes, because of the tectonic plates deep below the earth's surface would be fracture and they would respond to the sudden stress by releasing their pent up energy."

Feature an asteroid coming down in the Mid-Atlantic, causing a tremendous tidal wave and coupled with the earthquakes that would likely follow, there'd be an increase of the tsunamis and the size. These tsunamis would over run the entire east coast and could destroy many cities on the coast line. A large portion of the State of Florida would likely be under water.
