"The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law. (Dt. 29:29)
As the Preacher has already told us, "There is nothing new under the sunÃ¢Â€Â. (Ecc. 1:9) So why should we be surprised that yet another person has been the exclusive recipient of yet another "secretÃ¢Â€Â from God and, for the first time in the history of the world, is making it known to us? For some reason, instead of writing it down in one of the original languages of the Bible and making it freely available to all like the original Prophets of old, this time around God chose to have it printed in English and sold for $16.99 ($9.00 on the Kindle). For a fee, the "prophetÃ¢Â€Â will come and speak about it. False teaching disguised as "revelationÃ¢Â€Â like Jonathan Cahn's The Harbinger have been around sinceÃ‚Â handwriting was invented and such will, no doubt, persist until the Lord returns. Please do not buy it or even bother reading a friend's copy; why should you take away time from your personal meditation in Scripture, the only true source of revelation? But such things keep coming up, so I keep going back to the above verse.
- Fact 1: God has not revealed everything to us, nor will He.
- Fact 2: He has already revealed everything we need to know in His Word. There is no room for new books in The Book.
- Fact 3: If we cannot be obedient to what has already been revealed, there is no "newÃ¢Â€Â or further revelation coming.
In addition to outright false teachers and false prophets who teach error, there are also those who, "Ã¢Â€Â¦speak a vision of their own imagination, not from the mouth of the LordÃ¢Â€Â. (Jer. 23:16b) In either case, it is to be rejected just the same.
