God’s Will Has Been Fully Revealed

Basic Bible Truths: Laying a Foundation for a Lifetime of Spiritual Growth and Service

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” (2 Peter 1:3).

Through Jesus and His inspired apostles and prophets, we have everything that we need to know in order to please the Lord. Jude said, “The faith…was once for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 3). This means that God’s word – the source of faith (Romans 10:17) – has been revealed to us in its entirety. There is no need for modern day revelations (cf. 1 Corinthians 13:11).

Those who claim to receive modern day revelations are liars (Romans 3:4). They may be intentionally deceiving others or they may be deceived themselves. Paul told Timothy, “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). But either way, the result is the same. Teaching a modern day “revelation” causes one to be “accursed” (Galatians 1:8-9). Following a modern day “revelation” causes one to desert the Lord (Galatians 1:6).

Rather than seeking God’s will through alleged modern day revelations, we need to seek God’s will in His written word. “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We do not need to turn anywhere but to the Scriptures.
