Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:.25, Revelation 22:18, 19

As incredible as it may seem, there are still various groups  within Christendom that do not believe the Bible is God's  complete revelation to man. The Roman Catholic church has  its traditions of the "fathers" which are supposedly on par with  the Bible. Many charismatic groups believe that modern day  visions and prophecies still supplement the Word of God.  What saith the Scriptures to these things?

In Colossians 1:25, Paul writes, "Whereof I am made a  minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given  to me for you, to fulfill the word of God." The wordfulfill here  is from the Greekpleroo, meaning to fill completely. In this  context, Paul is referring to the mystery (verse 26), which  indeed fills up or completes God's full revelation to man. The  Old Testament prophets and the Jewish apostles such as  Peter, James and John were given revelation pertaining to  God's dealings with Israel and the kingdom program; butthey  were not given one word about God's heavenly program, the  Body of Christ. This only was committed to Paul; and  according to our text, Paul completed the Word of God.

What about the prophetic program? Is God's revelation  concerning His earthly, kingdom plan also complete? Yes, for  in Revelation 22:18 & 19, we read the sober warning not to  "add unto" nor "take away from the words of the book of this  prophecy." We can rest assured that the Word of God is  complete and that it is the final authority for faith and practice  for the child of God, especially as we "rightly divide the word  of truth,"
