NEW REVELATION FROM GOD?-by Steve Finnell



The apostle John wrote the book of Revelation in about AD 95. That was the last of God's written inspiration to mankind. There is no new revelation from God.

There are some denominations who claim they are receiving new revelation directly from God. Examples are: Friends(Quakers), Mormons, Pentecostals and other charismatics, and the Roman Catholic Church.

The Roman Catholic Church sometimes deny that they are receiving new revelation from God, however, an examination of their church doctrine reveals the opposite.

The Catholic Church teaches that sacred tradition is the oral teachings handed down through the church and was inspired by God. They teach apostolic succession in the Roman Catholic Church. The words of the apostles Peter, Paul and the rest of the apostles were in fact the inspired word of God, their words were Scripture. That would mean, if it were true, the Catholic apostles are teaching God's inspired word, new revelation from God.


IS THERE NEW REVELATION DIRECT FROM GOD TO MAN TODAY? NO, THERE IS NOT.

John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but what ever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. (NASB)

The New Testament apostles were guided into all truth. There is no new truth.

Acts 20:20 how I, did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from house to house, (NASB)

The apostle Paul taught everything that was profitable. Paul was taught directly by the Lord. Did the Lord forget to teach the important things?1 Corinthians 14:37 If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment.(NASB)

1 Pere 1:2-3 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.(NASB)

The New Testament Christians of the first century already had everything pertaining to life and godliness. They did not have to wait for new revelation nor twenty-first century prophets to guide them into all truth.

1 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.(NASB)

The first century Christians were equipped for every good work. They did not have wait for the sacred tradition nor teaching from the so-called apostolic succession of the Roman Catholic Church. They did not have to wait on the Quakers nor the Charismatics to have the complete teaching of God.

We have everything we need for salvation and living the Christian life contained in the Bible and the Bible alone.

If there is new revelation from God it should be added to the Bible right after the book of Revelation.

THERE IS NO NEW REVELATION DIRECTLY FROM GOD TO MAN.

PROVERBS 30:6 Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar. (NASB)
