The Bible will continue to speak no more and not less than when Jesus Christ fullfills every word of prophecy.

There are many who are know it all's, though they don't know half of everything or anything.

They proclaim their Greco-Roman Sophist ideas and look for followers.

They need to just cease their mouths.

Don't they believe parts of the Bible no longer exist? Is that right that God would give something, then take it away? I am confused!

He will pour out His spirit upon ALL flesh; and being in the prophetic, I can assure you that Satan has certainly deceived those who 'believe' that Prophecy, Gifts have ceased -- God's heart breaks, it is a stench in His nostrils that His people, who

really need to humble themselves, and SEEK His face, not their mirror, THEN he will hear and heal the land, We are His children, its His gospel, and we are His priests, ambassadors and He has no Favourites -- in the End times we who know His voice will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth -- and the truth is the Prophets are alive and well -- and are stomping back into His house; they are refined in the Desert and His house had better look out, ESPECIALLY pharisees/legalists!

They believe that certain spiritual gifts no longer exist, which means they ignore these parts of the bible:
1 Cor 12:8-11; part of 12:28-30; part of 1 Cor 13:1-2; 1 Cor 14:1-6; 14:13-15; 14:22-25 and 14:27-32.

johnt, I stand upon the Solid and Everlasting Rock of Christ, and there is no other more firmer foundation in existence. But you will believe whatever you desire.

Eloy, I an sure the good people at Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Seminary, Trinity Seminary, Liberty Seminary, Philadelphia Seminary or Bob Jones along with others do not agree with your assessment of them.

When you throw bricks at people like those, "On the contrary we read that they "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." II Timothy 3:5. you need to be on firmer ground than you are on presently.

I agree with Eloy...they are not Biblical!~

**" when the book of Revelation was completed or when John who penned it had died. **

The last book of the Bible to be written was the Gospel according to St. John, not Revelation.
---Jack on 10/16/06


It is a person who believes that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, like tongues, healings, prophecies, etc. have "ceased" when the book of Revelation was completed or when John who penned it had died. No it is not Biblical. On the contrary we read that they "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." II Timothy 3:5.
---Eloy on 9/16/06




John T is right they believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit disappeared. This was talked about by Paul when talking about the last days where in 2 Timothy 3:5 he describes people as " Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof"

Charismatic Gifts are dispensed at God's chossing, sometimes only once and for a certain reason. Either way the texts tells the early church to desire these gifts.

Cessationists are mainly Dispensationalists.

That is, they believe that God acted in 7 different covenants with His people. Most dispensationalists are Baptists, and the more independent they are, the more they believe in Dispensationalism.

Two main beliefs is that 1) the church is NOT Israel, and 2) Gifts of Holy Spirit ceased with the death of the Apostles (ca. 96AD), and codifying of Scripture (ca. 220).
