"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 (Ecclesiates 1:10,9).
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?
gives clear instruction on how to receive "light" from God: "Should not a people seek unto their God... to the
Law and to the testimonies?"
If they speak not according to "this word," it is because... There is no
light in them (Isaiah 8:19-20)!
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 scripture.
These people, no matter how good they sound, no
matter how genuine they seem to be, are false prophets and, according to Isaiah, there is "no" light in them.
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 you!"
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, transforming
"themselves" into the apostles of Christ.
