18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:It makes it pretty clear that God doesn't like people tampering, in any way, with His words! Just the other day I stumbled across a list of verses missing from most bible versions!! Here's the list, you may want to go over your bible and see if these verses are missing, or they may have been moved to a footnote.
19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
And worse, these are just A FEW of the verses left out. I didn't know there were so many until now. In addition, there is one other thing I heard during a sermon not too long ago. Most people believe the mark of the beast will be a tattoo of some type of tattoo or marking on the hand or forehead. However, the bible has something different to say!! It also depends on which version of the bible you use as well, and it's just ONE letter that makes the difference!! For this example I'll show the same verse from three different popular translations, and then the one from the King James Version.
Revelation 13:16 (NIV)
16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,
Revelation 13:16 (NKJV)
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
Revelation 13:16 (MSG)
13-17This second Beast worked magical signs, dazzling people by making fire come down from Heaven. It used the magic it got from the Beast to dupe earth dwellers, getting them to make an image of the Beast that received the deathblow and lived. It was able to animate the image of the Beast so that it talked, and then arrange that anyone not worshiping the Beast would be killed. It forced all people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to have a mark on the right hand or forehead. Without the mark of the name of the Beast or the number of its name, it was impossible to buy or sell anything.
Now for the King James Version!
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
I was really stunned when my pastor pointed this out. In the hand or forehead, not on it??? It's even more interesting when you learn that the FDA has already approved a computer chip for use in humans for transferring medical information!
