    :16; 3:14 Eph 4:17 1Th 4:6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:18

    Porque yo testifico a cualquiera que oye las palabras de la profecía de este libro: Si alguno aadiere a estas cosas, Dios pondr sobre l las plagas que estn escritas en este libro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 22:18

    Verse 18. If any man shall add] Shall give any other meaning to these
    prophecies, or any other application of them than God intends, he, though not originally intended, shall have the plagues threatened in this book for his portion.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. For I testify to every man , etc.] These are not the
    words of a scribe, who having wrote out a copy of this book, added the following adjuration to it, to deter persons from adding to it, or diminishing it; for the book is not yet finished, and both Christ and John speak after this; and to insert such a passage into the text would be a bold and daring action; nor are they even the words of John, the inspired writer of it, but of the Lord Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, as appears from ( Revelation 22:16,17,20) who in a most solemn manner declares to every man, high or low, rich or poor, of whatsoever character, or however dignified, either in a civil or ecclesiastic way, that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book read or explained, if any man shall add unto these things . To add to the things contained in this book, is not to deliver, or write an exposition of it, in a modest manner, with a sincere view to give light into it, agreeably to the analogy of faith; for to expound Scripture, or to preach from it, consistent with it, is not to add unto it, but to give the sense of it; but then may it be said to be added unto, and so this book, when it is wrested and perverted, and a false gloss is put upon it, as the Pharisees did upon the law; and when unwritten traditions are made to be equal to it, or above it, as the same persons made the traditions of the elders, whereby they transgressed the law, and made the word of God of none effect, and so broke through the precept given, ( Deuteronomy 4:2) as do the Papists in like manner; and when men pretend to visions and revelations, and make them the rule of faith and practice, and to confirm things that are neither in this book, nor in any other part of the word of God; and when men interpolate it, and set up human fictitious writings upon equal authority with it; which shows the authenticity of this book, and of all the whole Scripture, and the perfection of it, whose canon is closed with it: the punishment of such a crime follows, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book ; the things threatened to the antichristian party, ( Revelation 2:22,23 Revelation 13:10 Revelation 14:9-11) the seven last plagues in which the wrath of God is filled up, which will be inflicted on the same, ( Revelation 16:1-21), the lake of fire and brimstone, into which the beast, the false prophet, the devil, and all wicked men will be cast, ( Revelation 19:20 20:10 Revelation 21:8) (see Proverbs 30:5,6).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-19 - The
    Lord Jesus spake by the angel, solemnly confirming the contents of this book, particularly of this last vision. He is the Lord God faithful and true. Also by his messengers; the holy angels showed the to holy men of God. They are things that must shortly be done; Chris will come quickly, and put all things out of doubt. And by the integrity of that angel who had been the apostle's interpreter. He refused to accept religious worship from John, and reproved him for offering it. This presents another testimony against idolatrous worshi of saints and angels. God calls every one to witness to the declarations here made. This book, thus kept open, will have effec upon men; the filthy and unjust will be more so, but it will confirm strengthen, and further sanctify those who are upright with God. Neve let us think that a dead or disobedient faith will save us, for the First and the Last has declared that those alone are blessed who do his commandments. It is a book that shuts out form heaven all wicked an unrighteous persons, particularly those who love and make lies therefore cannot itself be a lie. There is no middle place of condition. Jesus, who is the Spirit of prophecy, has given his churche this morning-light of prophecy, to assure them of the light of the perfect day approaching. All is confirmed by an open and genera invitation to mankind, to come and partake freely of the promises an of the privileges of the gospel. The Spirit, by the sacred word, and by convictions and influence in the sinner's conscience, says, Come to Christ for salvation; and the bride, or the whole church, on earth an in heaven, says, Come and share our happiness. Lest any shoul hesitate, it is added, Let whosoever will, or, is willing, come an take of the water of life freely. May every one who hears or read these words, desire at once to accept the gracious invitation. All ar condemned who should dare to corrupt or change the word of God, eithe by adding to it, or taking from it.
