People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:19


Re 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy. This could be done by denying, or explaining away the words of prophecy. To do either is a deadly sin. Indeed, to tamper with the Divine word in any way is sinful.

    I love the whole bible, because I believe in god and have faith in him. revelation chapter 22 I read it more because I can understand it. the whole chapter of revelation.

    I hv undrstnd wht it says.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Almost every verse in Rev. can be found elsewhere in the Bible. I think it's because God wants us to use it all. Daniel is the key to unlock Rev. It cannot be understood without it. MOST of the keys to Daniel are in Daniel itself. Dan 7 and Rev 13are identical with Rev giving a little more detail at the end of it (our time). Both are chronological.. Rev 12:17.
  • Gilbert Mhlanga
    The whole book of Revelation is the most difficult book in the bible to understand and is confusing to me. Chapter 22 sounds more straight forward than the other chapters I have read!
