  • Karenna on Revelation 22:21
    I like that the last verse in the Bible ends in amen.

    Also that in the end of a payer yo say amen like it is finished or you're finishing a promise.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:21
    The word 'Amen' literally means, "so be it". When a Christian prays to the Father with praise & requests, he does so asking in the Name of Jesus. It is only through Jesus' Name that we can approach God's Throne & it's only in Jesus' Name that God hears & answers prayer. So when we ask according to His Will, in the Name of Jesus, we say 'Amen' signifying that we are truly convinced & burdened about what we've asked for & are assured that God will hear & answer our prayer according to His Will & in His Time. So saying 'Amen' is not just a nice ending to prayer but our affirmation before God.

    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

    If you sincerely put your trust in Jesus Christ knowing that he, being the sinless Son of God, laid his life down to pay for our sins, was crucified, dead and buried, and then raised from the dead, you will be saved and fully forgiven.

    He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalms 103:10-12)

    But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. (Acts 13:37-39)

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (Romans 3:23-26)

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
  • A prayer for David on Revelation 22:19
    Heavenly Father, I pray that you will cover this problem with your loving hand. While my mind is confused and struggles to find the right path, I know that you can heal any situation. Bring your peace and hope to my life. Hold me close to you so that my heart and mind may be kept safe. I pray that you will use the power of your truth to transform any darkness into your love and light. You are my fortress and my place of refuge. In times of difficulties, I turn to you for protection from harm. Thank you for protecting me and giving me your blessings in my life , Amen.
  • This light can also be the hope of humanity. The hope of eternal life. All of the sorrows of life, with it's disappointments, betrayals, illnesses and such likes cannot extinguish this eternal hope of mankind.
  • Audrey hardie on Revelation 22:19
    is the lord speaking of Revelation 22 19 or is this for the entire Bible?
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 22:19
    Proverbs 30.6

    Add thou not unto his words , lest he reprove thee and thou be found a liar .

    There is another verse similar to this one .
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:19
    The warning in Revelation 22:18,19 is specifically to the prophecies of the Book of the Revelation given to John. However, the warning is relevant in regard to any extra-biblical treatment to any of the other books of the Bible.

    It comes to us as a solemn warning that up to this point (i.e. the final revelation in the Bible), Jesus has only given this much news of the Church present & that which is to come upon it & the World. Many attempt to add more to it by way of special revelation, or as supposed prophets coming after the close of this Book. Their prophecies are false & their adherents usually have to reject the Bible in part or whole & cling onto the proclamations of their prophet as the final word 'from God'. We can think of Islam & the cults & a myriad of religions that have given their own versions of the present & future, that ultimately will fail as they are in direct conflict with the revelation from Heaven. These verses truly come to all of us as solemn warnings.
  • Hugo Zyl - in Reply on Revelation 22:19
    God bless you brother Chris

    You speak devoutly but we must not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Ephesians 4:11 clearly tells us that there are still prophets in the Church age. There may be 1,000 false prophets, but there will also be 1 who truly has received the office of being a prophet from Almighty God.

    Let us get the Holy Spirit and then we can not be deceived.

    Peace & Love in Christ
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22:19
    Your comment is appreciated Hugo. Indeed, the Church has been blessed with many gifted with abilities from God. And prophecy was one of them. Some would argue the prophetical content of those so gifted: are they establishing the published prophecies in the Word, or are they proclaiming something added to existing prophecies, or even something totally new as some have been prophesying on future events from present news. To this, I am very concerned & of course, the truth of the prophecy can be verified by its outcome: Deuteronomy 18:20-22.

    The Bible, in totality, is God's Word, past, present & future, to mankind. Prophets in the past have received God's Word directly to them which they have faithfully passed on. Others such as the apostles, in the new Church age, took up those prophecies & shed further light on them as they were led of the Spirit. Sometimes, they declared a 'mystery', something which was not revealed or clearly seen before (e.g. Romans 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:51, 2 Thessalonians 2:7, & others). And the union of believing Jew & Gentile in Christ's Church is seen today in full measure.

    In the Church now, which has the whole counsel of God in the Word & by His Spirit, any prophetical utterance has to be seen & tested by what has already been revealed. The fear that I expressed concerns the volume of cults & other God-centric religions that proclaim & prophesy matters that are not in the Bible, even anti-biblical & anti-Christian in content. And we also have a plethora of those who want to tingle our ears with something new so that we might be drawn to their 'prophecies or delusions', even donating money to keep their ministry going & our accepting them as fact rather than seeing them as 'an opinion', yet to be verified. Where is that "one prophet" of God out of a 1000 false ones that will make our hearts & spirits burn with joy & hope, rather than tingle our ears with nonsense? Blessings & peace on you too brother.

    Wesley's Notes for Revelation 2:19

    2:19
    I know thy love - How different a character is this from that of the angel of the church at Ephesus! The latter could not bear the wicked, and hated the works of the Nicolaitans; but had left his first love and first works. The former retained his first love, and had more and more works, but did bear the wicked, did not withstand them with becoming vehemence. Mixed characters both; yet the latter, not the former, is reproved for his fall, and commanded to repent. And faith, and thy service, and patience - Love is shown, exercised, and improved by serving God and our neighbour; so is faith by patience and good works.

    People's Bible Notes for Revelation 2:19

    Revelation 2:19 The last [to be] greater than the first. "That thy last works are more than the first" (Revised Version). Instead of retrograding, their works grew more excellent.

  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 22:19
    Excellent question .

    We need to be very careful we are not changing the truth of scriptures, any time . Always confess your errors to the lord , we all make them , the truth will set us free from the errors .

    Deuteronomy 4. 2

    Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you , neither shall ye diminish ought from it , that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your GOD which I command you .

    Psalms 138.2

    Isaiah 55.11

  • Marilyn dickinson on Revelation 22
    hello, i would like to talk about revelation ch.22. verse.2. where it talks about the leaves of the tree of life were for the healing of the nations. can you please tell me what this really talking about in the King James Bible. thanks
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Marilyn, most, if not all, of revelation are symbols that represents teachings of the spirit that are hidden from our carnal eyes. Trees are symbolic of man, Jesus being symbolic as the tree of life, when we have our minds renewed, by becoming one with Christ, ( the coming of the Lord or the day of the Lord, which began at Pentecost) we also become one with the tree of life. Therefore, the tree (singular) on either side of the river is the first fruit of Christ (us). 1 Corinthians 15:20 but now is Christ risen from the dead, and is become the first fruits of them that slept. 21 for since by man came death, by man also the resurrection of the dead. 23 but every man in his (Gods) on order: Christ the first fruits; after ward they that are Christ at his coming. Isaiah 6:13 but yet in it (the land) shall be a tenth (first fruit), and it (first fruit) shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree (us), and as an oak (us), whose (Christs) substance (holy seed) is in them (first fruit), when they (first fruit) cast their (first fruit) leaves; so the holy seed (Christ) shall be the substance thereof. Romans 11:16 for if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy;and if the root be holy so are the branches. Ezekiel 47:12 and by the river (living water) upon the banks thereof, on this side and that side, shall grow all trees (of life;us) for meat (spiritual food; word of God), whose (tree of life,us) leaf shall not fade, neither shall the (first) fruit thereof be consumed (12 baskets left): it (tree of life) shall bring forth new fruit according to his (Gods) months; and the (first) fruit thereof shall be for meat (spiritual food;word of God), and the leaf thereof for medicine (healing of the nations). Matthew 12:33 the kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven (spirit of God) which a woman (new Jerusalem; the mother of us all) took, and hid in three measures of meal (the meal offering to God, us), till the whole (lump) (all mankind) was leavened (by the spirit of God).

    You the man bro in Christ Earl.. we going back to the garden of Eden taking the fruit of life. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." the tree of life spirit brothers those that have an ear have an ear.
  • Jeremy Byrd on Revelation 22:4
    Revelation 22:4 KJV says in their foreheads. What is the significance of "in" their foreheads instead of "on" their foreheads in other translations?

    4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 22:4
    Jeremy, most, if not all, of Revelation contains symbols that has spiritual truths that can only be discerned by the workings of the Spirit within you. Throughout the Word of God, as you study, the Spirit will reveal the key to the symbols. An example would be: Psalms 89:36 His (Christ) seed (whose seed we are) shall endure for ever, and his (Christ) throne as the sun before me (the Father). (vs) 37 It (Christ throne) shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven (us, spiritual heaven, our minds [foreheads]). Selah. These verses give insight to other verses such as; Revelation 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven (us, our mind [forehead]) a woman ( Galatians 4:26 new Jerusalem, the mother of us all, in travail, waiting to give birth) clothed with the sun (Christ), and the moon (Christ) under her (us, the woman) feet.....Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ (sun and moon), who (Christ) is the faithful witness..... Joel 2:31 And the sun (Christ the light of the world) shall be turned in to darkness (death), and the moon (Christ) into blood (a spear was thrust into the side of Christ and out came water and blood) before the great and terrible (wonderful) day of the Lord come (Pentecost, the outpouring of the Spirit on mankind).

    If you take communion and you're not sure if you're saved and truly believe will you go to hell
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Hello, there's a page on this website that shows steps on how to be a Christian, so if you have any doubts just follow the steps to be sure: Link
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Susan, your question is difficult to answer as it would require us to judge another person, which only God can do. What I can say, is that anyone who is not a Christian according to Christ's Gospel is destined for Hell, a place of suffering & complete separation from God. See John 3:16: the word 'perish' there is 'an utter, permanent destruction'. We know that the spirit of man can never be destroyed - it will always live on; so this destruction will be the opposite to eternal life with God, & it is eternal death away from God, with the Devil.

    So, such a person partaking of Communion is separated from God, destined for hell anyway. Unlike the person who is saved through faith in Jesus' death & resurrection, that person will one day be with God & so Communion is a special time to remember the Lord in His Sacrifice for us & what a great salvation He has given us.

    But there are some who put on a 'Christian face' on Sundays, & live despicable lives the rest of the week. That is why the apostle Paul gave the warning in 1 Cor 11:29,30: "For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep." To those that come to the Lord's Table (Communion) in an unworthy manner (i.e. living a double life of hypocrisy, harbouring unconfessed sin, or even expecting that they can receive some blessing by partaking of Communion), they do it unto "damnation" of their souls & may even experience physical ruin or 'sleep' (a euphemism for death).

    If someone is not sure about their salvation, I strongly suggest that they don't partake of Communion & spend time in God's Word & Prayer, so that God may speak to them about their sin & lead them to repentance & salvation. Not knowing if you are saved can be a terrifying state to be in; when a person is truly born again of the Spirit, the Spirit confirms this clearly in the heart, leaving no doubts.

    Remember, there is a a lot cults and heresy going around the church. So you cant simplify it and say "become a Christian". And do you not know 1 Corinthians 6:2 and 6:4-5? Here is it"2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" and "4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

    5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?"

    Though it depends on how you judge one another. In this case we should judge every doctrine even if it is your church or mine! Hope this gives you understanding.
  • Then most and it is strange no one else understands the guy told me there is onl - in Reply on Revelation 22
    I totally get what you were saying here, It makes more sense than you could ever possibly imagine when it is compared to whom Jesus told me I was. I have literally lived this all Roman family and all. Well Italian that is. I know what God told me when I died in surgery three years ago, and then after the Holy Spirit came on me I carried too long in the Old "Jew-Ruselum". Thus, I "fell back to Earth because I did not heed the call I was sent back to do". Don't forget Jesus comes to say did you first then the gentile are well I can give you another word but it probably would not be the best to put. I am my father's daughter and I can only do or say what my father taught me. He was like a king Solomon a very wise man who grew up at a very young age and I was his mini me. So I see things in a whole different dimension Then most, and it is strange no one else understands the guy told me there is only one way!

  • Susan Lucarelli - in Reply on Revelation 22
    AMEN AND AMEN. What is righteous and just and well, God show me I am a Libra a true Libra at that and my entire life I can only judge based on all of the wrongful judgment that was placed on me since childhood. Righteous and true our gods judgments because only God can understand all the brokenness and hurts and what others are feeling or have been through.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 22
    If I offended you, I apologize. None was intended. It's been a strange day in here. I know nothing about the Catholic religion.

    In the prayer request room I do meet people who have spiritual needs that greatly exceed what their religion provides to them.

    Have a blessed evening.
  • A Bible believa - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Umm... I don't see your intent. Are you agreeing with me or disagreeing?
  • A bible believer - in Reply on Revelation 22
    Just because you are a christian dosent mean you will be saved. It is more complicated than that. First of all you need to have faith. Second, you need to humble yourself and be submissive to God. Third, you will need to pray for the Holy Spirit. Fourth you will need the Holy Spirit withstand every demon that is going to come against you.
