Revelation 22:18-19 “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”

Humans and religion have always gotten into trouble when they attempted to overlay the Word of God with ritual and tradition.  So the message in the Scriptures above are quite simple…don’t even think of adding to or subtracting from what it says in the Bible.   We are reminded of the authority and sufficiency of the word of God in II Timothy 3:16 that reads,  “All of Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”  The Bible contains everything we need for salvation, trust, hope, and love….its words more than adequate to meet every need and accomplish God’s divine purpose in our life.
