Revelations 1:3 > read, hear, and keep the prophecy, 22:7 > keep, 18-19 > don't add to, or take away from, this prophecy. These verses refer to the book of Revelations. Though, one can say that it is incorrect to add to, or take away from, the scriptures in general, 2Timothy 3:16. Preachers should keep this in mind.


In Revelations 22:18, John may have in mind false Christians, those opposed to Christ, and those people who would pervert Christianity.

Just the Book of Revelation.
You can find out the aproximate dates that the differant Books were written.
If i'm not mistaken "Bible" Means= Books or little books?
You can also find out why they felt some Books should'nt be put in the Bible when they were putting it together.
When John wrote this he had no idea that it would be put into a Book with other Books.
Some Books in the Bible were actually just letters inspuration to people, Like Tim. & Phil., Titus.

Just the Apocalypse itself.

Revelation was written BEFORE the Gospel according to St. John.

Furthermore, what we now call the Bible between two covers in a single volume is pretty much a development of the printing press.

The true Christians have been persecuted throughout the ages. Look at what the Catholic church did to Tyndale and his aides for creating an English version of the Bible. They were burned alive. So yes, puritans and all the others led by Satan have been trying to destroy the KJV and it's readers for years. That is what a bad guy does to his enemies. (I havent ever heard of anyone dying to bring us the NIV. where were the evil forces trying to stop it's creation?)

** Rev Herb - could you elaborate?**

He means any Bible but the KJV.

The ironic thing is that the radical Puritans--Herb's spiritual ancestors--called the KJV the "Devil's Bible" on its appearance, burned it in the street, and continued to use the Geneva Bible, which was the version the Pilgrims brought here, and continued to use till the edition was exhausted and worn copies could not be replaced.

I believe it refers to the Book of Revelation only.

of course everyone who reads the Bible's other books will be blessed. that is what they are there for, to help you. but blessed is the reader of Revelations because many will believe in the organization of the beast. the anitchrist will even decieve the elect if it was posible. so don't you think its vital that we are not decieved.

Rev Herb - could you elaborate?

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Yet we have new perversions everyday.
---Rev_Herb on 11/21/06

Okebaram - spot on. I agree with you. It applies to BOTH Revelation, and the whole Bible.
---laure5759 on 11/21/06

Billy - the books of Daniel and Revelations are not given to us to interpret. They are given to us so that we may have HOPE in Christ.

I have some recollection of several interpretations of the SDA leading to predictions as to when the Rapture would be - the dates of which are now in the past, and yet the Rapture has not taken place. I do not listen to man, but to God.
---laure5759 on 11/21/06

Revelation 1:3 is speaking about the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave to John, and which John wrote down in the book of Revelation. Revelation tells of things now happening, and also of future events that are shortly to come to pass. When you accept these words and obey them, then you will be blessed and inherit the kingdom of God; but of course if you dis them, then you will perish in sin and afterward be resurrected for the second death where you must be thrown into the lake of fire.
---Eloy on 11/20/06

Many of you will like to say that John was talking about only the book of Revelations. But have you forgotten that every word in the bible was inspired by God. And even if John did not realize it, that statement applies to the entire bible, as inspired by God's Spirit. Even the order of the biblical books is God-pre-ordained. And yes, it does apply to the book of Revelations.
---Okebaram on 11/20/06

#2: Even common sense should suggest that a primary source, or a law code should not be accessible to change, unless it contains errors which God's word doesn't. If we can change stuff, we lose the law; anarchy sets in. This is the major problem with America today. Their laws are changeable. One moment abortion becomes legal..soon rape may become legal. Religion maintains societies because regardless of people, its moralities stay the same...but America has thrown religion out, no wonder its perversion!
---Okebaram on 11/20/06

Billy: If you have to depend on any earthly religion, then your faith in trusting God for knowledge and the Holy Spirit for guidance is small indeed. Don't you trust God for knowledge? He will gladly give to him what he seeks if he only asks.

By the way, the SDAs are not a very reliable source of prophesies since they have failed in prophesies many times in the past. And what does God say about failed prophesies?
---Steveng on 11/20/06

ask a SDA about it, they have great studies on Rev and Dan. They are mainly the only ones I have studied with who could interprest these books along with prophecies etc. try them. dont just knock them.

It does indeed apply to Revelation only. Lest we forget, there are several other passages that include other areas and even all of the Bible. 2Tim.3:16 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,"; Mat.5:18 "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fullfilled". see Ro.15:4 & 1Cor.10:11 etc.
---mikefl on 11/20/06

It refers to the whole book of the bible. The book of Daniel foretells the book of Revelation. What Daniel saw, was the same as what John saw, but God went in more dept with John's vision.
---Rebecca_D on 11/20/06
