A God Who Speaks Today
|RETURN TO QUESTIONS||NEXT QUESTION|
Evangelicals are divided on this issue. Some use Hebrews 1:1-2 to say that God does not speak today, that all prophecy and revelation ceased a long time ago. But we cannot find anything in this passage that indicates God is silent.
Some say that God speaks today but that the canon of scripture is closed. They maintain that nothing spoken today could be worthy to be called scripture. They often use Revelation 22:18-19 as a prooftext to support their idea of a closed canon of scripture.
However, Revelation 22:18-19 specifically addresses the Book of Revelation only. Its meaning has been twisted to suggest that the entire biblical canon is closed. Deuteronomy 4:2 has a very similar message, yet the canon of scripture did not end at Deuteronomy 4:2.
God does not change. If He spoke in times past, He will speak today. He is available to those who seek Him. There is no evidence that the canon of scripture has been closed.
