For Prophets: What To Know About The Gifts Of The Spirit And Holy Spirit

March 24, 2017 / Alonge Michael / Uncategorized / 2 Comments »

1 Corinthians 12:8-10 – For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another, the working of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discerning of spirits; to another, divers kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues.

According to the passage the gifts of the spirit are;

  1. Word of Wisdom – one who can dissect the Bible and give the word of the season.
  2. Word of Knowledge: one who will advise you do this and do that and everything will work perfectly
  3. Faith – one who can take any risk in God.
  4. Healing
  5. Miracles
  6. Prophecy
  7. Discerning of Spirit: one who knows if is the spirit of God that is talking or not.
  8. Speaking in Tongues: other language.
  9. Interpretation of any language in the spirit.

All these gifts are given by God freely to anyone He calls or wants to use for the work of His kingdom.

What are the reasons for these gifts?

  1. For edification of the church
  2. To confirm the call of God upon the fellow.
  3. To attract people towards God
  4. To make people believe there is God
  5. To showcase on the earth how powerful is our God that created the universe.

Does these gifts indicate the Holy Spirit is in a fellow?

No! Like we were taught in Economics, the opportunity cost of a free gift is zero because no work has been done to deserve it.

What is the correlation between the Holy Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit?

The Holy Spirit indicates that one is associated with the giver of the gifts of spirit. The Bible says if a man is born again, old things have passed away, behold everything is anew.

One can have the gift of the spirit and still remain in his/her old self, which means he/she only has the gift but doesn’t have intimate connection with the giver of the gift of the spirit, e.g

  1. A prophet that just fornicates and went on trance to deliver message
  2. A prophetess that just commits adultery with another woman husband and enter inside church and start prophesying.
  3. A pastor or shepherd that is eyeing another man’s wife and got to the altar to preach the raw word of God like saint
  4. A minister that just lied and his/ her counseling is raw word of the spirit.
  5. An evangelist that never respects his parent and can discern if is God or Satan speaking through another fellow.

The key point is you cannot be doing the things of Satan and claim you know God, that is the greatest fallacy of all time.

You get the gift of the spirit free but you do the work of faith like keeping yourself holy to have the Holy Spirit, the disciples were separated from the world before they received Holy Spirit, they worked for it.

Why do we need the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is the fuel that keeps the gift of the spirit going and growing for the edification of the church. The Gift Of The Spirit Without The Holy Spirit Has An Expiring Date.

You fight to win your old self, Jesus Christ fought to win the temptation of Satan, so we also have to face temptation of those things we have been doing before when we were in the world, ability not to fall into them back again is called separation. Even job states it in Job 14 that a man born of a human is of few days full of troubles.

    Nice article, very understandable.
    The explanation under the word of knowledge and word of wisdom should be vice verse, wisdom will enable you to find a solution while knowledge will enable you to know stuff regarding Bible or other things. Just a point of view, no offence. I really love your articles. Thanks.
