The Complete Thing
Three spiritual gifts, including tongues, were to cease when the complete thing had come. Dr. Harlow confirms that this refers to Scripture, not the coming of the Lord Jesus.
The perfection and balance of the complete Scripture is marvellous in our eyes and another proof of its divine inspiration. The Bible was complete when the New Testament was written during the apostolic age.
Three gifts of the Holy Spirit were to cease when the complete thing had come. Some who advocated the use of tongues today maintain that the complete thing is the Lord Jesus but this booklet confirms the belief that the phrase refers to the Scriptures.
