Revelation 20:11,12 (KJV)

12 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.

8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
