There are so many reasons why people embark on a certain course of action. The parents take their little children to the kindergarten setting when they are young, so that it can become part of their daily routine when they grow old. The parents take this decision before the child is old enough to refuse the laudable goal of embracing education. Some young men wake up on a beautiful day and they thought fit to go the army enlistment unit to be enlisted as a national army.

Primarily the process of registration in a school setting, or when one is about to be enlisted into a national army, or whatever trade anyone choose to engage in, is very simple.  The name of the individual person, his or her address and lastly the contact address of the closed relative of the person will be required and documented in an open register for the exercise.

As part of the smart way of governing people in a nation, a registration page is opened for all the citizens of the nation. As a result, some nations introduced a national identification card for their citizens. In United States of America, the State Department of Vital records issues birth certificates to the citizens of each state. The department also maintains the records of the death in each of the states in the nation. By this, the population of the living citizens can always be extracted when needed.  In the same manner, the US government also issue a green card document to open a register for all the foreigners that dwelling in the country.

In order to have central register for all the people dwelling in the nation, the Social Security card were issued to all people.  That is why the documents like state identification card, green card and social security number are always required of the people before any important dealing or financial transaction is established with any person in this country. This is the smart way that this nation systematically enroll every single person, one way or the other, in order to have an open register for everyone. If anyone does not have any of these important documents, the person is categorized as illegal alien and he is subject to deportation any time.

In the same manner, there is an open register of God in Heaven where it is expected that every human being on earth have their names enrolled. And 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. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:12,15) In this Book of Life, pen was not the instrument that maintains the record, it the faithful choice of salvation through Jesus Christ and the good works that we engaged in while we were here on earth that maintained a permanent record for every one of us in the precious Book of Life in the presence of God.

Let us therefore, be thoughtful in the choices that we are making now in order to ensure that our names are enrolled in the necessary enrollment book called the Book of Life in the presence of the Living God in Heaven. Time is of the essence for this important decision.

Prayer: O Lord, I will not frustrate the grace of salvation that you have extended to me in Jesus name. My name shall be written, imprinted and maintained in the Book of Life, in Jesus name, Amen.
