Be Content With The "Old" Revelation of Scripture

God, by his Spirit, brings old truth home to the heart, gives new light to our eyes, and causes the word to exercise new power over us, but he reveals no new facts, and he utters no words in any man’s ears concerning his condition and state. We must be content with the old revelation and with the life and power and force with which the Holy Spirit brings it to the heart. Neither must any of us seek to have any additional revelation, for that would imply that the Scriptures are incomplete


Why would God give something "new" to those who reject what is "old"? That heart is an arrogant, unbelieving heart to begin with and He will not honor such  wickedness.
