Class_2-The_Test_of_New_Light.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 2-2 •Reviewing the last (Does God Have Secrets?) presentation: –Should we be expecting both new and deeper light? •The information only appears to be “New & Deeper Light” from our perspective (it has always been there), •Truths of the Third Angel’s Message are constantly unfolding –Does everyone have access to this light? •The light of truth shines on anyone that is open to receive it. –What will the information look like? •Some of the information is interwoven within existing end-time prophecies –Ellen White sites Habakkuk 2:1-4 as just one example –In what way will this information likely come? •Very much out of the common order of things, •In a way contrary to human planning, •Surprising by how simple the messages are brought forth & given to others. Review & Introduction

When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” Deuteronomy 18:21-22 (KJV) 2) “And he said, hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.” Numbers 12:6 (KJV) 3)“He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:” Numbers 24:4 (KJV) 4)“He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:” Numbers 24:16 (KJV) 5)“For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? For as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me. Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, and said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.” Daniel 10:17-19 (KLV) 6)“The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him.” Jeremiah 28:9 (KJV) The 12 Tests of a Prophet

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.” 1 Corinthians 14:3-4 (KJV) 10)“To the law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20 (KJV) 11)“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God; and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:1-3 (KJV) 12)“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” Matthew 7:15-20 (KJV) The 12 Tests of a Prophet (Cont.)
