4-20-2016 Salvation And Bible Faith

No one has received a revelation from God since the New Testament was finished.  God’s last word to Israel was: “Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments” (Malachi 4:4 NKJV). 400 years of silence from God followed.  God has similar statements in the New Testament: “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3 NKJV); “remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 17 NKJV); “If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 14:37 NKJV).  The written Scriptures are God’s last words to the world.  Whoever claims more is sadly mistaken!

On Boredom

Regarding boredom, I’ve can always find something profitable to do – even in a doctor’s waiting room. I always take a good Bible-related book written by one of the brethren, so that I’m constantly learning while I’m waiting.

As I grow older, I’m very aware that time is of the essence: http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/2006/01/08/making-wise-use-of-our-time/

As our Lord once stated:

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).

Here’s an article I wrote on being productive in a doctor’s waiting room:
