When the apostles died, the miraculous works of which they were capable died with them. When the apostles died, the miraculous gifts of which they were endowed and capable died with them. Those miraculous gifts died immediately. They passed away immediately. They were no more. They ceased to be [1 Corinthians ]. When the apostles died, those marvelous things they were able to do died with them: raising the dead , and all the other glorious things that we read of the apostles in the New Testament.
It was natural, therefore—now listen to this—it was natural, therefore, that there should appear a man of aesthetic piety, of rigorous devotion and zeal, who gave himself and announced himself as a man in whom those apostolic miracles, and gifts, and revelations should be renewed and revived.
It was just as natural as the day follows the night. When those apostolic gifts, those supernatural gifts, passed away with the apostles, I am saying that it was just natural that there should appear at least a man who purported to have in him, renewed and revived, those marvelous gifts of the Holy Spirit, possessed by the apostles. So, in about AD, there appeared in a Phrygian village, a self-styled prophet by the name of Montanus. And he had with him two prophetesses, Maximilla and Priscilla.
And he held forth that he was the continuation and that he possessed those same endowments of the apostles. And he came with ecstasies and with trances.
And he said that he gave the new and further revelation from God, and that what he spake superseded the words of the apostles, for he had and he possessed a later revelation. And so powerful was the montanistic movement, Montanism, that it swept Tertullian himself away; and Tertullian became a Montanist. Montanus said that as he sat in trances and in ecstasies, that there came revelations to him by the Holy Spirit; and these were the latest pronouncements of the Lord for His churches.
Of course that created a violent reaction among the churches of the Lord Jesus Christ. And two things came out of the vigorous repudiation of Montanism. One: the churches forever and forever declared that the canon was sealed; that it was forever concluded and finished. And in placing the Book of the Revelation at the last, and in quoting from the last words of the Revelation, they applied those words to all that had been written heretofore:.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of this prophecy…If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him plagues that are written in this book:. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book.

God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in the book. The churches of the Lord way back yonder in AD and the years followed; are there any more visions from heaven? Are there any more Scriptures? Are there any more revelations from God? There are no other revelations from God. The canon is closed! The canon is complete! The Bible is finished. And there are no more Bible texts to be written, there are no more Bible books to be added to the canon, for the revelation is complete and forever.

That was the first thing that happened in Montanism. All right, the second thing that happened as they waged this fierce warfare against Montanism, second: the churches of Jesus Christ in that long ago said that there is no promise in the Word of God that the supernatural powers of the apostles would be continued—that the supernatural miracles would be continued in His churches after the days of the apostles.
There is no power given, and there is no power promised continuing in the churches of Christ, that we shall raise the dead, that we can speak and these who are turning to corruption shall live again; and the other marvelous and supernatural powers of the apostles. Do we have that power today? And those early churches, in their battle against Montanus, they said concerning the holy, and divine, and supernatural miracles of those first apostles, that they were attestations of the truth of the message that they delivered, and they were not promised to be continued in the life of the churches beyond.
This arose immediately after the death of the apostles. We have the same thing today, exactly today. I have had people come to my house in my study, and tell me those things. And of course, the vain hope and the vain grasping of the people of God, some of them, for those supernatural, miraculous powers possessed by the early apostles leads to nothing but frustration, and defeat, and vanity, and spiritual pride.
What we must do is to learn what it is God purposes in the revelation of His word, and in the preaching of His gospel, and in His elective program and commission for us who live in this age and these who follow us if the Lord tarries, unto the end of the work of God and the purposes of God in His churches in the earth.
Well, I am two-thirds through. And I thought I would finish this morning. And the Lord give us understanding as we open our hearts to the heavenly truth of what God would have us do, and would have us to expect from His Holy Spirit in our day and in our life. Now on the first note of the first stanza, as we sing our hymn of appeal, somebody you give himself to Jesus [Romans ].
Somebody today to make a confession of his faith in the Lord; somebody to put his life in the fellowship of this dear church; a couple you, a family, or one somebody you, on the first note of the first stanza, while we sing this hymn, you come and stand by me.
Immediately, as you stand up, decide for our Lord, and come, make it now, while we stand and while we sing.

Two thousand years of experience in the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit of God John , 26, , Study of Holy Spirit touches every point of theology, doctrine. Never a time when they did not confess the deity of Holy Spirit Matthew , Revelation Early fathers had no occasion to defend or define the deity of Holy Spirit. Early fathers looked upon Holy Spirit as author of all the Scriptures. Attacks against the Trinity tore churches apart. People of God gathered together to spell out what the Bible teaches. Arian controversy brought about writing of Nicean Creed. Heresy of Macedonius brought about addition to Nicean Creed.
Cessation of extraordinary, miraculous gifts. The more a man is deficient in wisdom, weak in strength, borne down with trouble, prone to sin, so ought he the more to fly to Him who is the never-ceasing fount of light, strength, consolation, and holiness. Impr , page book.

Interiorly, if we sense we are all alone we may react with fear. To feel as though there is an interior abandonment from God is a frightening thought. But on the contrary, when we sense that God is very present and alive within us, we are greatly strengthened to face life with courage and joy.

Jesus says this, knows it and experiences the blessing of that relationship in His human and divine Heart. The same can be said of each one of us.

First, we must come to realize that the Father has sent us. We each have a mission in life. Do you realize that? Do you realize that you have a very specific mission and calling from God? Yes, it may entail very ordinary parts of life such as chores around the house, the daily grind of work, the building up of your family relationships, etc. Our daily lives are filled with ordinary activities that make up the will of God.
