Christians, does the bible end with Paul letters, or are the books that are being written today included?

Think about it. There are spiritual books being written all the time with people sharing their faith and their walk with God. I have read a lot of spiritual books that has touched me spiritually, and the way I see it. How do we know that God is not continuing on with the bible?

A lot of us have stories, knowledge and experience to share of God grace and blessings, so I do not believe that the bible ends with Paul letters.

The bible ends with Revelation. But I agree with you — arrogant and self-righteous human ‘authorities’ may have slammed shut the door on God’s mind, but that doesn’t stop God from continuing to reveal. It only stops them from recognizing revelation when it happens.

You know what’s ironic? The biblical canon includes a promise Jesus makes to his apostles: that the Holy Spirit would continue to reveal things to them. Paul is himself an example of that, because he was not one of the apostles at the time that promise was made. Yet ‘authorities’ have decided that the promise came to an end. God did not so decide.

    The Bible ends with John’s Revelation and not Paul’s letters. The book is sealed.
    The Bible is the foundation. People are building the superstructure. Anyone can build upon it.
    It is not the foundation that attracts the viewers. But without it the superstructure collapse.

    In 1513 B.C.E. Moses began Bible writing. Other sacred writings were added to the inspired Scriptures until sometime after 443 B.C.E. when Nehemiah and Malachi completed their books. Then there was a gap in Bible writing for almost 500 years, until the apostle Matthew penned his historic account. Nearly 60 years later John, the last of the apostles, contributed his Gospel and three letters to complete the Bible’s canon.

    The bible end with this words:
    “I am bearing witness to everyone that hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll;  and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city, things which are written about in this scroll." Revelation 22:18,19

    Only the bible is inspired of God. The other religious book written after are not.

    Be encouraged as you consider the following:

    Most mature believers acknowledge the Holy Bible as a collection of books, and a library of holy writings. The several books vary in content, focus, length, style, and other characteristics. In most presentations, there are 39 books from the sacred writings of the ancient Hebrews, and 27 books from the New Covenant writers; and these constitute the “common ground” for various Catholic and Protestant congregations.

    Rightly understood, the Bible is more than simply an historical document, or narrative record. The Bible is a fixed, unchanging standard of spiritual truth itself conveying spirit substance that allows clear discernment, and recognition of divinity. As such, the Bible is the primary tool for evaluating spiritual claims for prophesy and all inspired writings, including those produced today. The closure, finalization, and investiture of the Bible as a permanent, single, divine authority is proclaimed through the Revelation of Jesus Christ that GOD gave unto him, the final book of the Bible.

    There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, the Bible makes visible the operation of GOD over the course of thousands of years, and thousands of lives.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
