In theory, yes.  At least the person who is able to do this is a

     "And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on 
      it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled 
      away; and there was found no place for them. 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."       Revelations 20:11,12
