辈子, 日子, 生命 and 生活 are different in their meanings:

辈子: one's whole life, lifetime as a whole -- Here life refers to "the period between the birth and death of a human being."
生命: life -- Here, "life" as in two different meanings: No. 1-"the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter" and No. 2-"the existence of an individual human being or animal."
生活: life. -- once again this refers to "the period between the birth and death of a human being."
日子: day, date; life, livelihood (spoken Chinese). -- The second meaning is very similar to 生活, however it's less formal than 生活 and is used a lot in spoken Chinese.
