Worship: For Heaven’s Sake There are three record books in Heaven. One is the Book of Life. The other is the Book of Remembrance. The third is the Book of Death.
The Book of Life is also referred to as the Lamb’s Book of Life. It contains the names of those who “have identified themselves with ‘the house of God.’ I Peter 4:17. . .In it God Himself has written the names of all who from the foundation of the world, beginning with Adam, have been adopted into His family, and have entered His service. Phil. 4:3; Rev. 21:27; GC 480.”
The Book of Remembrance “contains a record of the good deeds of ‘them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His name,’ those who ‘spake often one to another.’ Mal. 3:16; GC 481. This book is so called because God delights to remember every good deed.”
Also called the Book of Sins, the Book of Death is a record of evil deeds. “For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD” (Jeremiah 2:22).
“Not only the wicked but the righteous have their evil deeds recorded in their Book of Death, for ‘all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,’ Rom. 8:23, the difference being that the righteous have repented. Their sins have gone before to judgment, I Tim. 5:24, and forgiveness has been written after each one. It is in the holy of holies, the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary, that these books are now open – opened for examination in the court room of the universe. When the judgment of the house of God closes, every evil deed of the righteous will be blotted out, and their Book of Death will doubtless be destroyed, their evil deeds never again to be ‘remembered, nor come into mind.’ Rev. 20:12; Isa. 65:17.”
During the segment, Pastor Flemons dispelled a myth that also he once promoted: that three surprises are waiting in Heaven for everyone. One surprise is that people you thought should be there, won’t be. The second is that those you thought would not be there, will. And finally, the fact that you are in Heaven will too be a surprise to you. This is not scriptural, says Pastor Flemons.

Worship: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can eat a tasty meal of fully cooked vegan dishes. He specifically mentioned enjoying a meal at one restaurant. But there was nothing raw on the plate. The Loving Hut vegan restaurant chain, he specifically mentioned as having healthier choices with good raw options. “Make sure your meals line up with Genesis 1:29,” he says. Nuts, grains, fruits, and vegetables: “Make sure you include these foods in their natural state, as much as possible.”
