Default Book of life vs Lambs book of life

Are they the same book? You can have your name blotted out of the book of life which would destroy the teaching of eternal security. But seems to me like they are two different books
Help?

I only know of one book of life which belongs to the Lamb who was slain for our sin's. Where are you seeing "blotting" names out of this book?

The book of life in Rev. 3:5 is the register of profession from which names will be erased according to this scripture

Lambís book of life Rev. 13:8; 17:8; refers to the Lambís book of life contains only the names of genuine believers from which No Names can be erased.

Seems to me they are two distinct books?

If you read Rev. 3:5 carefully it verifies eternal security;

Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

It says IF you overcome, you'll get white raiment and He will NOT remove you from His book and will confess you before the Father. The key being NOT.

The key being the sequence "IF you...then HE"

How about having your name blotted out of the book of life? How is that possible if eternal security is correct?Psalm 69 refers to blotting out someone's name out of the book of the living. However, Revelation 3:5 is stating that true believers' names will not be blotted out.
How can they be the same book then?

There is likely no literal book, rather language made for people to get an idea. An omniscient God has perfect memory without need for any book. Any "blotting out" would make for a messy book indeed.

Maybe it is a big MySQL or Oracle database.

The book of life and the Lamb's Book of Life are two different books

The book of life is a book recording the names of all who ever lived.
The Lamb's book of Life records the names of those who have placed their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

When a unsaved person dies, his or her name is removed from the book of life. When a saved person dies, his or her name remains in the book of life, for death has no dominion over him or her. Like Lazarus, that one is only sleeping.
