New Light? No Light!
"Is there anything whereof it may be said, See this is new?
The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that
which is done is that which shall be done:
And there is no new thing under the sun" (Eccl 1:9-10).
In light of the above information (straight from the Word of
God), how should we be dealing with those who claim
to be receiving new light or new revelation?
Isaiah gives clear instruction on how to receive "light" from
...Should not a people seek unto their God...--to the Law and

If these were the only two references in the Word of God dealing
with those who claim to be saying something "new" or receiving "new" revelation, they would be enough to
debunk these false apostles and prophets, but they are not.
So do not listen to anyone claiming to receive revelation
from God that, even they will admit, cannot be backed up by the written Word of God.
These people, no matter how good they sound, no matter how
genuine they seem to be... are false apostles and false prophets and, according
to the written Word of God, and there is "no" light in them.
Do not follow them! Or you may find yourself falling into the
ditch right along with them.
Don't forget, there will be those who cry "Lord Lord! Didn't
we do mighty works in your name?"
Jesus' heartbreaking response will be, "I never knew
Even Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. Is it
any wonder that his ministers be transformed into ministers of righteousness?
Such are "false" apostles, deceitful workers,
into the apostles of Christ.
