The Principle of Progressive Revelation (2/2)

 

In the first part of this principle we underscored how God’s revelation was progressively handed out to man. In this edition we will explore how self-acclaim messiahs, false prophets and teachers have intelligently usurp the progressive principle and forced certain books and teachings  to be accepted as part of the canon and prove how their claim is false, unaccepted and subjective.

 Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses

 The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses is an 18th- or 19th-century writings allegedly written by Moses, and passed down as hidden (or lost) books of the Five Books of Moses or Pentateuch. These books claim that the miracles performed by Moses were the result of magic and so the text contains magical incantations which aim to instruct the reader in the spells used to create the miracles recorded in the Judaeo-Christian Bible. These writings contain Talmudic magic names, words and incantations and depicted with diagrams of "Seals": magical drawings accompanied by incantations intended to perform various tasks, from controlling weather or people to contacting the dead.

 Response:

 At the end of his writings Moses emphatically declared the end of his writings and gave instructions to Joshua his successor and the Levites to keep the Pentateuch locked up in the Ark of the Covenant.

 Deuteronomy 31:24-27 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,

 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,

 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?

 Historically there was a leader in the person of Joshua and no one could touch the Ark of the Covenant on his own volition and live not even the Levites. They have to be clean according to God’s standard.  

 These 6th and 7th  books of Moses which can only be traced to 18th-century German pamphlets, and made popular through printing in 1849 in the 19th century, spread through Germany and Northern Europe, to German immigrants in the United States and eventually helped popularize the texts among African Americans in the South and Caribbean, and Anglophone West Africa. It influenced European Occult Spiritualism, as well as popular religious movements in the American South (Hoodoo), the Caribbean (Rastafarian), and West Africa are nothing but an attempt to claim legitimacy for the miracles duplicated by Pharaoh’s magicians of all the miracles God performed through Moses. Theses text only leads to bondage, dangling in the occult and eventually losing your soul to Satan.

Paraclete

Paraclete comes from the Koine Greek word παράκλητος ‘paráklētos’, which signify "one who consoles or comforts, one who encourages or uplifts; hence refreshes, and/or one who intercedes on our behalf as an advocate in court").

Many Muslim writers have argued that “another Paraclete” (John 14:16) used in reference to the Holy Spirit actually refers to Muhammad. A few Muslim commentators, such as David Benjamin Keldani (1928), have argued that the original Greek word used was periklytos, meaning famed, illustrious, or praiseworthy, rendered in Arabic as Ahmad, and that this was substituted by Christians with parakletos. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraclete

 Response:

Muslim accounts say the Quran began in the year 610 when Gabriel appeared to Muhammad in the cave Hira near Mecca, reciting to him the first verses of the Sura Iqra (al-`Alaq). This was 500 years after compilation of the Christian text and the canonization of the Bible in the 5th century. So the Bible was a prerecorded text from which any people can make substitutes and falsify some of the text to suit their teaching and not vice versa as claimed by Islamic scholars.

All scripture is inspired

In 2 Timothy 3:16 we read that all scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching and instruction in righteousness. Many have taking the progressive principle to mean once God revealed or inspired the scripture then it’s meant to be practiced.

Response:

The Pharisees in Jesus’s day took the same progressive stands and questioned Jesus if it was right for a man to put away his wife as was allowed by Moses. In answering the Pharisees Jesus made a distinction between ‘permissive will’ and ‘perfect will’ of God. Jesus reminded them it was the hardness and rebelliousness of their heart that made Moses grants them permission through the writing of a bill of divorcement. He however reiterated God’s plan from the beginning of creation that ‘What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder’ with regards to marriage Mark 10:1-9. Every scripture that is written by inspiration according to the apostle Paul was written for our learning (Romans 15:4) to decipher which part is authorized as God’s perfect will for conduct.

Apocrypha

The word Apocrypha means works, usually written works that are of unknown authorship, or of doubtful authenticity. There are Old and New Testament writings considered as Apocryphal. These books have been refuted and rejected as lacking inspiration, authenticity and authorship and therefore have never been accepted as authentic and were not included in the books of the Bible.

Response:      

The 66 books that make up the Bible were canonized by Jewish rabbis and scholars and later by early Christian’s leaders. The term “canon” is used to describe the books that are divinely inspired and therefore belong in the Bible. Ultimately, it was God who decided what books belonged in the biblical canon. The process started between AD 170 and finally at Council of Carthage A.D. 397.

When the last book of the Bible was concluded Jesus Himself sign off and gave a strong warning with consequences to whoever will try to add to or remove from the prophecy of the Scriptures. Revelation 22:16-19.

Progressive revelation of the scriptures does not suggest that there is room for additions or misinterpretation of the scriptures. There are checks and balances put in place by Jewish and church fathers committed to preserving the scriptures from unscrupulous fingers.

This step-by-step manual helps Christians improve their relationship with God and position them to encounter and enjoy God’s glory.

“Readers will have a deeper understanding of how the old and new tabernacles were established and how they both exist in the New Testament, and especially how to inculcate them into their lives,” says Annan. “Understanding and [being] able to relate to both tabernacles in this New Testament era is crucial to worshipping God in spirit and in truth.”

Prior to giving his life to Christ, Annan was a pop dancer who performed at various functions. When he got saved, God used his special gifts to minister to people and bring them to the altar for worship.
