New Age Christianity Part Nine
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 (Ecclesiastes 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 (“Present Truth”)?
Isaiah gives clear instructions on how to receive “light” from
God: “Should not a people seek unto their God... to
the Law and to the testimonies (the written word of God)? If they
speak not according to this word,
it is because...there is no light in them (Isaiah 8:19-20).
New light is no light!
8:19-20 says that every utterance must be weighed against that which has
already been written.
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 who claim to be restoring “present truth,” but they are not. So
do not listen to anyone claiming to
receive new revelation from God
that even they will admit cannot be backed up by scripture.
Beware of anyone who claims to receive new light, new revelation from God, something that hasn’t already been written. No matter how good they sound, no matter how genuine they seem to be, these people are false teachers. And according to Isaiah, there is no light in them.
