This relates to the previous article. Basically, the Protestants threw out any possibility that the Lord had spoken to anyone since the canon of written scripture. The “word only” is the cry of the Protestants. This is more than I can write on in the few minutes I have to post here, but here is some consideration of this topic.
The Bible says to “despise not prophesyings”. “Prove all things.” “Hold fast to that which is good.” “If all the things that Jesus had done were written, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books.”
Many saints have received revelations and visions from the Lord in the Catholic church. Basically, the Protestant church has rejected all the revelations that Catholics have received.
Should this position be reconsidered? Yes.
On the other hand, to be consistent, if all is going to be rejected but church tradition, then how did the charismatic move come into effect? It had to be because people were listening to the Holy Spirit, and beginning to receiving afresh, outside of what had been traditionally happening in their own denominations. If the Holy Spirit had not been manifesting in denominations for many years, and all of a sudden began again, isn’t that a break with tradition? What difference is that from Catholics receiving visions and revelations from the Lord? So it is okay when revelation happens in Protestant circles, but not Catholic?
It is time to get back to “he that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”. (Churches is plural).
