To those who believe the Bible is the infallible word of God: On the very last page of the Bible
When John writes the warning in Revelation 22:18 about anyone adding to the words of the prophecy of this book and anyone taking away words from this book, to whom is he addressing ...preachers of the Word of God/pastors, or all?
Anyone. That's what it says. Christian's, preachers or not, are even more responsible, but I believe this does mean anyone as in anyone in the whole world.
All ... John is speaking a word of warning to everyone who hears the prophetic words and anyone who adds to or takes away from. God's word don't need NO help ... All of It is powerful & alive with all the necessary ingredients to complete us & equip us for every good work, just as it is ... Everybody aught to know ... better
Faith I must admit I am a little lost here. If John is talking about the Bible as we know it today clearly that is very different from the bible of his time. Because there was no bible. How many "books" were in the original Bible's of Nicea? We know that books have been added and deleted from the bible by varying traditions.
From what I can tell the Bible used by the Eastern Orthodox is closest to what John could be referring to but for sure not that Bible in the picture.
So we must look at what John is talking about. Not "scrolls" and not a leather bound book called "The Holy Bible". "Book" in this case is more likely like "The Book of Life" or "the word of God".
But I have ten different Bibles in my home. So it cannot be one of those.
There is one Holy Bible, it is in the Book of Revelation 22:18 on the very last page of the Bible. God bless.
eirc, the 1611 KJV bible i believe is the one GOD intended us to have. it is the one who nobobt can destroy from the earth. it is the one spread to all places in all languages. the other versions are stumbling blocks. they all ad to and take away.
Thank you for your comments, tlmcgaa70. Blessings
tlmcgaa70-- what utter foolishness, it is as bad as most and worse than some. not 1 is to be trusted without referring to the original languages. the kjv is responsible for more error being taught than any other because it is misunderstood
John is speaking to any and ALL that read it. but I must also say that he is referring only to the "this book of the prophecy" of revelation not what we know as the bible as many teach.
There are many who have and are teaching things that are not the truth about this revelation of Jesus Christ and they are the ones he refers to especially.
Rev 1:1-3 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants — things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
Rev 22:18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Our perception and understanding of God is often based on our filters. We run Him through our filters. We then shape our reality of Him into an image. Often an image that we want or at least can understand. We...
