abrev:

Amen! I think it’s important to document one’s alleged revelations, especially predictive or guidance ones.

Then, down the road, one can revisit them and better discern whether it was indeed of God, or maybe just a ‘bit of christmas pudding’, to paraphrase Dickens.

When one does what abrev warns against, you wind up with ‘extrabiblical’ documents to which people ascribe authority equal (or exceeding) to the scriptures, and that does nothing but lead into error.

Non-christian examples would be Joseph Smith and Charles Taze Russell, or even Mary Baker Eddy.

Christian examples, thankfully are fewer, but include Ellen G. White, and some smaller groups with varying erroneous doctrines due to ‘extrabiblical’ revelation.

Blessings,
