“The Lord would speak to Moses face to face as a man speaks with his friend. This is part of contemplative prayer when we sit back and realize it’s just not that we have something to say to God, it’s that God has something to say to us. I want to be in that Tent of Meeting.” -Beth Moore
She doesn’t mean through Scripture.
True or false? The Bible commands you to tune in to an inner voice. No. Study Scripture. Meditate on Scripture. Chew on Scripture.
Jesus said: “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
When you say, “God is talking to me on the inside,” I must remind you that the Scriptures are sufficient and you’re denying Sola Scriptura.
In Christ the revelation of God has been completed. And when Jesus’ death was finished, when He said “It is finished” and Christ’s substitutionary atonement had happened, and He was raised from the dead. Around that same time since redemption was finished, revelation was soon going to be finished. Completed.
Kevin DeYoung says in his new book that you should read, “Taking God at His Word,” Scripture is enough because the work of Christ is enough. They stand or fall together.
The Son’s redemption and the Son’s revelation must both be sufficient. God does not speak outside of His Word today.
In a recent sermon, Pastor Mike Abendroth discusses the Sufficiency of Scripture & the problem with False Teachers Like Beth Moore who claim to hear from God outside of His Word.
