Revelation 22:17-18 “God’s Word Part 2: A Closed Canon”

Lecture Given by Pastor Joshua Hall at Sparta Reformed Presbyterian Church during the evening service on January 6, 2019.

Introduction

There are some who treat the Word of God lightly. They may deny the virgin birth, sinless life, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Or they may doubt the miracles reported in both testaments. Others may elevate the words, thoughts, feelings, or inclinations of man to the level of God’s Word. Let us consider the way God guards His Word as we read these two verses from the final chapter of the final book of the Bible.

Outline

Proposition: Since God’s complete Word has been given to the church, we must receive it with great care.

Main Points:

  1. How do we know that the Bible is the Word of God?
  2. How do we know what books should be in the Bible?
  3. How do we know that the Bible is complete?
