Acts 26:22 What the Faithful Preacher Preaches

Acts 26:22 (KJV)
Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

There is no doubt that Paul was:

  • Called of God
  • Filled with the Holy Ghost and
  • Possessed gifts of the Spirit

Paul was used of God to record for us more than half of the New Testament. God spoke to him directly and through dreams and visions. Peter testified that what Paul wrote is Scripture. But Paul carefully explained that nothing he said crossed outside the parameters of what was already the revealed Word of God in the Old Testament.

The modern day Charismatic and Pentecostal preachers should have taken a cue from Paul. Their claims at having the spiritual gift of prophecy and then to preach things not found in the Bible and, in some cases, contrary to the Bible, abuse and dishonor the very Spirit they claim has gifted them. Paul practiced what preachers today are bound to practice; the careful study of God’s Word and the exposition of that Word. Paul preached with confidence and authority but never with arrogance. He never strayed outside what God had already said. He never contradicted the prophets or countermanded their message.

A faithful preacher preaches “none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come.”
