Spiritual Gifts

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills (1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 1 Corinthians 12:11). The Father wants spiritual gifts to manifest in us as the Holy Spirit desires. There are three Spiritual Gifts that reveal; the Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge, and the Discerning of Spirits. There are three that do; The Gift of Faith, The Gifts of Healings, and the Working of Miracles. Then, there are three that say; The Gift of Prophecy, Divers kinds of tongues, and the Interpretation of Tongues. These gifts are all demonstrations of the Father’s love for the world and of His desire that people be free from the bondage of sin. Three things are necessary for these gifts to manifest. First, there must me unity. In the book of Acts the Holy Spirit manifest regularly in spiritual gifts and you’ll find that the church was in one accord. Don’t speak negatively about others, and be sure to forgive and give much grace and mercy to your brothers and sisters in Christ. Secondly, we must walk in love. The kingdom of God works on the foundation of love, and you’ll find that spiritual gifts will manifest more frequently when we really show agape for one another. Eagerly pursue and seek to acquire this love, make it your aim, your great quest (1 Corinthians 14:1Amplified). Lastly, we must desire these spiritual gifts. If we desire them, we’ll want to know more about them and how they manifest. And we’ll spend time praying for them to manifest as the Spirit wills. I recommend Concerning Spiritual Gifts by Kenneth Hagin, and Spiritual Gifts by Harold Horton (no relation 🙂 ). I encourage you to regularly ask the Father to manifest His love for humanity through spiritual gifts. And tell Him you’re open any time to be used by Him. Then expect the Holy Spirit to manifest these gifts as He wills.
