Thanks for the encouragement.
The three major interpretations on Rev 22:18-19 are
- Loss of salvation.
- Loss of reward.
- Evidence of an unsaved heart.
I favor the third option as do many of the other commentaries on Revelation.
The closest I have to a commentary on Revelation is my book argument or summary of Revelation that is posted on this sitea.
Commentaries by Robert Thomas (Rev. 1-7b and Rev. 8-22c), and John Walvoordd on Revelation are among the best. Also, see Tony Garland's commentarye available through this site.
People reject Dispensationalism for a host of reasons such as a dissatisfaction with the text's plain meaning, anti-Semitism, a prior commitment to a kingdom now social agenda, an attraction to liberal or postmodern scholarly trends, or an elevation of a Christian tradition over what the text says. The real issue is where authority should reside. As for me, I want God to speak rather than my own preconceptions. Thus, I seek to follow the literal method of interpretation wherever possible, including in Eschatology.
The best way to keep up with my teaching is through this sitef.
Also, check out Sugar Land Bible Churchg for recent sermons and Scofield Prophecy Studiesh for a recent conference I was involved with on social issues.
Thanks for your perseverance in teaching God's Word.
