The Chaff of False Teaching Cannot Stand Up To The Wheat of God’s Word
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. (Jeremiah 23:28-30 KJV)
There is no more prophecy to be revealed today. God’s Word is finished, made spiritually complete. His Word is inspired, recorded, and preserved. Even so, yet today you will run into preachers and teachers who falsely proclaim to have just been given a new dream or message from God. Those claims are simply not biblical and cannot stand up against the truths contained in His Word.
God leads and directs those who possess a personal relationship with Him through the supernatural power of His living Word together with the presence of His Spirit alive in regenerated hearts in this Age of Grace.
Today God does not visit mankind personally or send dreams and visions for the purpose of revealing any new prophetic messages today.
God was dealing in the Old Testament with false preaching in the context of this particular verse. When He referred to the chaff He was speaking of those people who were false preachers and teachers. The wheat is a reference to the true preaching of God which is the bread of life.
