Good morning all,
The word of the day is “addendum.” I remember the first time that I read the book of Revelation in the Bible. It was a pretty scary endeavor. Luckily though, I had one of my small group leaders help me through it. I was only in high school. It was me and a couple other guys. We thought we would be courageous and try to learn and understand what that book was all about. We soon realized that understanding everything in that particular work of John was going to be a much longer process than just reading through it once. But, I do remember one of the verses that stuck out in my head, and still does even to this day…
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.” ~Rev. 22:18
That is some crazy stuff. My question is: do you believe that God’s word is good enough the way that it is? What John is saying right here is that nothing should be added to the Bible… there is no addendum needed. God took care of all of the stuff he needed to say, and would be sending his son back soon to get us. My prayer is that you live and the hope that God’s words are true and accurate. Whenever life gets you down, always remember that God is right beside you fighting the war. And although you might lose a battle or two, you have been given the victory in God’s perfect Word, in its totality.
Praying for you,
