Why I Am a Cessationist (44 min)

PART 10 – After some general introductory remarks about spiritual gifts, Jonathan Black outlines 5 reasons why the “sign and revelatory gifts” (tongues, healing, prophecy, words of wisdom, and words of knowledge) ceased before the end of the first century BC. His reasons are: 1. Scripture says these gifts have ceased; 2. They have served their purpose; 3. Tthe apostles have passed away; 4. The Bible has been completed; 5. Modern tongues and healing fail the test of discerning Biblical scrutiny (Readings: 1 Cor 13:9-13, 14:22-26, 2 Cor 12:12, 1 PEt 4:7-11) (Message preached 24th Mar 2019)
