one class of these new citizen-types are tormented in Revelation 9 by a transgenic horde. Death seems to flee from them, and they cannot die. They may also be the same segment of society that is thrown alive into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20).

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.
This is the first mention of the book of God in which the names of the righteous are written. It is referred to in Scripture under various terms: “Thy book” and “My book” (Ex. 32:32–33); “the book of the living” (Ps. 69:28); “the book” (Dan. 12:1); “the book of life” (Php. 4:3; Rev. 3:5; 13:8; 17:8; 20:11–15; 22:18–19); and “the Lamb’s book of life” (Rev. 21:27). Just because “book of life” does not appear in all of these passages does not mean the reference in any one instance is to something else. Just as we have several names for the Bible—“the holy scriptures” (Rom. 1:2; 2Tim. 3:15); “the oracles of God” (Rom. 3:2; Heb. 5:12; 1 Pet. 4:11); “the law and the prophets” (Lk. 24:25–44); “the word of God” (Mk. 7:13; Rom. 10:17; Heb. 4:12); “the sword of the Spirit” (Eph. 6:17); and others—so we have several names for the book of life.Here God confirmed Moses’ belief that names can and will be blotted out of the book of life when men incur the eternal death penalty (Ex. 32:33). The psalmist predicted it in the case of Judas (Ps. 69:20–28). Christ warned of it regarding all who would not overcome sin (Rev. 3:5; 22:18–19). This—God’s word, not man’s—is definite, not doubtful; it is universal and eternal in application, not local and limited.[i]
