Do Not Take Away Even One Word...Revelation 22:19

22:19 Revelation

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.

This is a verse that warns believers to be very careful about which Bible translation they choose to read. This is a verse that lets us know how very important it is to get educated in this area.

This is a sobering verse that should be taken with all seriousness.

Because of what this verse says, we can rest assured that the 4th century authors of the corrupt Egyptian Minority Texts are roasting right now. We can rest assured that the authors of the 19th century Hort Westcott Greek New Testament, which is based entirely on the Egyptian Minority Texts, are tormented in the same flame described in Luke Chapter 16.

In fact, we have in this verse, Revelation 22:19, an absolute promise that anyone who participates in translating a Bible version which corrupts even one word of The Revelation, has had his or her name taken away from the Book of Life.

How many well known and highly respected Christian leaders today who, indicating their approval, have allowed their names to be printed in the forward of some of the most corrupted Bible versions we have seen to date? These men and women obviously have no fear of God, or respect for his Word.

The Revelation is contained in the New Testament, doesn’t it make sense that we should be very careful about trusting any and every “Modern” version that rolls off the presses?

The New Testament of King James Version is translated from source material that can be traced back to the apostles. It is absolutely reliable. Don’t ever listen to anyone who says differently. It is not true that the Received Text it is translated from is “riddled with errors,” as is falsely stated in the preface of many Bible versions.

The subject of Bible Versions has been research extensively and a book written entitled Bible Version Debate: Why? (link in sidebar). The book is free to download.
