God is busy revealing Himself to us through multiple mediums, for the purpose of developing and maturing a personal love relationship with every human being. We are meant to be receptors of that revelation and are therefore responsible for correctly discerning it. Scripture gives us these clear discernment guidelines for this all-important task: A true self-revelation of God will glorify Jesus Christ by acknowledging the dual nature of His being as well as His supremacy in every respect. Such a revelation will evoke love for God – a love which drives out fear, stirs faith and produces brotherly love. A true self-revelation of God will resonate with Scripture and with the believer’s spirit. It will also resonate with the believer’s spiritual community, and in particular the overseers of that community, the believer’s disciplers and with those with the gift of discernment. Should a revelation of God be a foretelling (concerning future events), such a revelation will be confirmed when God himself brings it to fulfilment. It must also be confirmed by the evidence of Christ-like fruit in both the revelation bearer (e.g. the prophet) and the outcome of the message.
