5. Completed Canon of Scripture
After the first century, all divine communication was contained
in written form; today there is no revelation from God outside
the Bible. Dreams, visions, trances and voices are no longer bona
fide revelations in this Age. The best one can say for these activities
today is that they are hallucinations; at the worst, they would fall into
the category of demon possession. People who hear voices or have dreams
and think these come from God are off base---- sometimes even non compos
mentis! There is no such thing for us as extra-Biblical revelation. God speaks
only through His Word in the postcanon phase of the Church Age.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's holy people.
