Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 1 Corinthians 12:1-2
When Jesus ascended to Heaven he told Peter and the Church to wait for the Holy Spirit to come, and on the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit arrived and empowered Christians in the name of Jesus Christ.
One of the failures of the modern-day Church is the lack of teaching about the Holy Spirit, for this power was giving to us by God, and without it we are vulnerable and naive. But by the Holy Spirit comes the wisdom and power of God in Jesus name.
Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:3
The Spirit completes the Trinity, therefore only speaks truth that comes from God. Nobody who denies Jesus is filled with the Spirit for they are lying. When you accept Jesus into your heart, you are welcoming the Holy Spirit to come also, which will provide you peace and knowledge.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
God has uniquely made all of us with different talents and skills, we should use these talents to Glorify God and tell the world about his kingdom. Don’t compare yourself to others, everyone has there own path, and everyone has there own strengths. Build from each other and let the Spirit enhance your gifts.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:7-10
The same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is the same Spirit living in you. There is power, strength , wisdom, and healing in the name of Jesus thru the Holy Spirit, but are you willing to accept him?
All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. 1 Corinthians 12:11
Some have the power of healing, some have the power of prophecy, all of this comes from the same Holy Spirit from the same God in the name of Jesus. Welcome The Holy Spirit today and be elevated to a new spiritual level that demons will tremble at your sight in Jesus Name Amen
