Sunday – April 14th – Revelation 22:18-19     -----    
18 And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book.
19 And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person’s share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book.
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:

     Good Sunday to you, my friends!  Attention all of those who are or have college attending students. The application process for the SunRise Scholarship in Honor of Troy S. Biernbaum is now open through June 30th.  If you are interested in who is eligible, the application process, and the reason behind the prestigious scholarship you can find all of that on the SunRise “events” page through either the church website or app.

     In our pick verses today, John gives a stern warning to future readers as to the seriousness of this end-time prophecy. This warning is for everyone who hears - first those who are in the seven churches who will have this read to them, and then by extension all hearers or readers down through the ages until the end of time. John’s warning is that those who intentionally attempt to “add” or “subtract” from this prophecy are thusly distorting God’s intended message of Revelation, will receive the full wrath of the Almighty. Specifically, any person who adds their motive or personal agenda to this book will receive the fullness of the plagues recorded in this book. Likewise, those who, for the purpose to benefit themselves by take away from God’s Holy word as written this book will have their share in the tree of life taken from them. I think it is safe to assume that John’s warnings can accurately be extended to the whole of scripture. To intentionally tamper with the Word of God is a sign of unbelief and is a dangerous matter to ever consider no matter the reason or justification behind it.
