Whose names are in the book of life

Philippians 4:2, 3
  • I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. 3Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Paul knew the names of these brothers and sisters (at least, Clement and the rest of Paul's fellow workers, as the immediate context would dictate) in Christ were written in the book of life. 

Revelation 3:5
  • The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

Revelation 20:12, 15
  • And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.
  • And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 13:8
  • and all who dwell on earth will worship it(beast; devil), everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

Revelation 21:27
  • But nothing unclean will ever enter it (New Jerusalem, the City of God, in the new heaven and new earth), nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
