Revelation 22:19 says” And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
Proverbs 30:6 says” Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.
Reading the bible does many things for the person who reads it. In the book of Revelation 1:3 it says Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it.
When we are reading our bibles or rather we are in a bible setting group with others we are NEVER to take the word out of content neither use it to fit what we believe it should say.
Since the time Christ walked the earth the religious leaders of that time always took the scriptures out of content and they used it to fit their own personal needs. Jesus called them “RELIGIOUS” having no relationship with God at all.
Here is a fact, “No human being knows the bible completely” no human being knows how to interpret the whole bible. With that being said each and every one of us can read the same scripture and each person will get a different meaning from it. Does that means that one person is right and the other is wrong? No, it doesn’t, but sadly what has happen in our churches today is that we want to force people to see why we believe what we believe instead of going directly to the scriptures together and read the whole verse together. You must read it in its content and because we don’t always do that we find ourselves at odds with others.
So how does one make sure they don’t take away from the word? Pretty simple ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand. Remember what the scriptures says if we take away or add to the word God will rebuke you and show you to be a liar.
There are just something that you and I are not going to know. The Lord Jesus does not need you and I arguing over His word, AMEN?
So get out of the flesh and stay in the spirit, remember only Satan will argue over the word.
