We must state clearly that in this life, no further truth will ever be known than what is revealed in Scripture.
However, we would have to say that additional truth will be unfolded while endless ages roll.
As to the present, the Bible indicates that God's total mind and will have already been revealed. 1 Corinthians 13:10 shows that "sign gifts" were only required until the canon of Scripture, "that which is perfect," was complete. Thus when John, the last writer of the New Testament, completed his part of the inspired writings, God had no further message to give to this world.
Regarding the coming world (Ephesians 2:7), the writer shows "that in the ages to come" fresh manifestations of our Lord Jesus Christ will ever be unfolded and never be exhausted. Another has well said, "When we arrive at our desired haven, we will never graduate from heaven's university."
