  1. Enough Is Enough Does God still reveal His thoughts to mankind?

  2. True—We Do Not Have ALL Information About God, Jesus, Etc. “And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” John 21:25

  3. Secret Things Belong to God “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29

  4. We Have Enough Information “And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:30,31

  5. Book of Mormon

  6. Modern Revelation: Mormons • “God called a prophet in 1820 and we've had one ever since.”– Greg West, a Mormon and a writer for examiner.com • "How wonderful it is that we believe in modern revelation...There never was a time in the history of the earth when men needed revelation more than they need it now."– Gordon B. Hinckley, Inspirational Thoughts, Ensign. Sept. 2007, six quoted on http://lds.org, official site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (a.k.a., Mormons)

  7. Koran

  8. Modern Revelation: Koran • “At the age of 40, while engaged in a meditative retreat, Muhammad received his first revelation from God through the Angel Gabriel. This revelation, which continued for twenty-three years, is known as the Quran.” – www.islamcity.org

  9. Benny Hinn

  10. Modern Prophet: Benny Hinn Benny Hinn quotes on Christians being little Gods/ gods:"When you say, 'I am a Christian,’ you are saying, 'I am mashiach' in the Hebrew. ‘I am a little messiah walking on earth,’ in other words. That is a shocking revelation.... May I say it like this? You are a little god on earth running around." (Benny Hinn Praise-a-thon TBN November 6, 1990)..."Christians are Little Messiah's and little gods on the earth. Thus [encouraging the audience]...say ‘I am a God-man....This spirit-man within me is a God-man…’ say ‘I'm born of heaven-a God-man. I'm a God man. I am a sample of Jesus. I'm a super being.’ Say it! Say it! Who's a super being? ‘I walk in the realm of the supernatural.’ Say it!...You want to prosper? Money will be falling on you from left, right and centre. God will begin to prosper you, for money always follows righteousness....Say after me, ‘everything I ever want is in me already.’"(Benny Hinn, TBN, 1990).

  11. Quakers

  12. Modern Revelation: Quakers “Because there is that of God in everyone, anyone at any time may express God's leadings. Therefore, revelation, or messages from God, is continuous. Friends affirm that God inspired the writing of the Bible and other sacred literature and is still inspiring us. Although we are not always receptive, God continues to reveal Divine guidance and unchanging truth to all of us today, just as in the past.“ – http://www.quaker.org

  13. Modern Revelation: Quakers • “Continuing revelation is the result of having the Inner light or the light within...Some Friends consider the Bible the ultimate authority, but others consider the Inner light to be above the Bible. Both groups believe that Christ speaks to people directly and not just through the text of the Bible.” -http://www.experiencefestival.com

  14. Roman Catholics

  15. Modern Revelation: Catholics • “Vatican II explained the doctrine of infallibility as follows: "Although the individual bishops do not enjoy the prerogative of infallibility, they can nevertheless proclaim Christ’s doctrine infallibly.” – http://www.catholic.com/library/Papal Infallibility.asp

  16. Seventh-Day Adventists

  17. Modern Revelation: Seventh-Day Adventists • “ELLEN G. WHITE (1827-1915) …is considered to have been inspired by God.” - Ellen G. White, 1975 paperback edition (back cover)

  18. We Do Have Some Revelation Today “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.” Psalm 19:1-3

  19. God Revealed the Mystery “Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began.” Romans 16:25

  20. God Reveals Knowledge “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” Ephesians 1:17

  21. Reasons Why Modern Continuous Revelation Does Not Occur

  22. Reason 1 • Jesus said the apostles would be led into all truth.

  23. Guided Into All Truth “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:26

  24. Guided Into All Truth “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” John 16:12,13

  25. Reason 2 • The apostles claimed that the truth had been revealed to them.

  26. All Things Pertaining to Life “As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.” 2 Peter 1:3

  27. Kept Nothing Back! “How I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house.” Acts 20:20

  28. Whole Counsel of God “Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.” Acts 20:26,27

  29. Moses Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear according to all you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.” Deuteronomy 18:15,16

  30. Moses Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “And the LORD said to me: 'What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.’” Deuteronomy 18:17,18

  31. Isaiah Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.” Isaiah 42:1,2

  32. Isaiah Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth. He will not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands shall wait for His law.” Isaiah 42:3,4

  33. Jeremiah Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah- not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD.” Jeremiah 31:31,32

  34. Malachi Was Unable to Declare the Whole Counsel of God “Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. ‘Behold, He is coming,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Malachi 3:1

  35. Contrast the Claims of the New Covenant “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16,17

  36. Reason 3 • God revealed His will once for all time.

  37. Delivered Once “Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” {Jude 3} “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” {Hebrews 9:27,28} Once Jesus came to earth, He died once. He bore sins once, and the faith was delivered once.

  38. Reason 4 • The apostle Paul declared that prophecies would fail.

  39. Prophecies Would Fail “Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

  40. Prophecies Would Fail “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:11-13

  41. Knowledge Without Study “But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Matthew 10:19,20

  42. Miraculous Knowledge Would “Vanish Away” “Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8

  43. 1 Corinthians (53-57 A.D.) = an Early Addition to the New Testament

  44. Purpose of Miracles “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” Mark 16:20

  45. Purpose of Miracles “God also bearing witnessboth with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will.” Hebrews 2:4

  46. Perfect = Complete, Mature “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

  47. Perfect = Complete, Mature “Jesus said to him, ‘If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.’” Matthew 19:21
