M&M- Gifts pt 3

We would now go to the other 3 gifts that say something.I would like us to go through the scriptures, check out these gifts and then if you have any question as pertains the study, you can just ask and get a reply.

The gifts that say something

*Prophesy

*Divers kinds of tongues

*Interpretation of tongues

PROPHESY

The simple gift of prophesy have been mistaken to be FORE TELLING. That is not a right way to think else you would run into the cofusion of trying to differentiate between the gift of prophesy and the word of wisdom.

Prophesy is FORTH TELLLING. It is not to predict some certain events in the future, but just speaking out by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in a language we understand. Paul said in 1Corinthians 14:3 but he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exortation and comfort.

That is exactly what the simple gift of prophesy is, when you speak with an unknown tongue no one is edified, but if you interpret in a known language, you have prophesied.

In Acts 21:9-10 a distinction was made between some daughters that prophesied and then a man named Agabus who was a prophet. And being a prophet or any of the other ministerial gifts is not a portfolio, they are all jobs. I think we would get into that pretty soon because everyone has been called to ministry and it is full time too for everyone.

I hope I was clear on the gift of prophesy? Now I would show an example of prophesy from a place in the bible to show there can be no single fore telling and it would be prophesy. How many of us have manifested these gifts but we do not know because we have been ignorant of spiritual things, Paul doesn’t want that for the Corinthian church anymore than God wants it for us. Lets look at it Luke 1:67-79

Verse 67 says “and his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying

Now if you read through you won’t see any specifics on fore telling, but he spoke forth divine things as the Spirit enabled him. Am sure if anyone had listened, they would be very edified. That is an example.

Lets take the last two gifts together

DIVERSE KINDS OF TONGUES AND INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES

These two gifts are the only gifts exclusive to the church, the gifts exclusive to the new testament.

It is as simple as it sounds, the gifts of tongues. If you notice divers in the King James Version was italicized it means it was added when translating to make up for laguage barriers, so these gift of tongues manifests in one way, the person speaking does not have any idea what is been said.

Unless interpretation comes in.

You might speak in tongues and it would be the language of another person as inspired by the Spirit, the person would understand you.

Paul made an interesting disctinction on two kinds of tongues 1Corinthians 13:1 tongues of men and tongues of angels.

Tongues of men is simply speaking a known language that you didn’t learn but men know it while tongues of angels is speaking mysteries that no man knows. The knowledge is not fruitful without an interpretation.

Now interpretation of tongues is not one heavy duty too, Paul said you should pray to interpret too as much as you speak 1Cor 14:13. If you ask God, if you desire, if you are willing to give it expression, you would see them happen.

In prayers, it is best to speak with tongues because it would be praying from our spirit Romans 8:26

At times we have the urge or burden to pray and we don’t know why we are praying, who we are praying for or what to even pray for: at this point pray in other tongues and you would be praying God’s divine will you can never pray amiss when praying this way.

As you pray at times, you get to narrow down to a person or a place, in your spirit, or you might receive a word that directs you and then you would know exactly why you have prayed or you are praying, however if this doesn’t happen, pray and leave it alone. Just pray!!!

When this prayer is done in tongues it happens at times that you begin to know some words in your spirit that you would speak out, just speak them out. At times you would pray in tongues for a long time and have just two words to say in your understanding, at other times you have prayed for a little while and by inspiration you are speaking for minutes. There is no formula to this, just follow the Spirit,

He does the leading and you do the yielding.

Glory to God.

M&M- Gifts pt 2

THE GIFTS OF HEALING

This gift was seen many times in the new testament and it is one gift I would not spend much time on because we have seen it in operations too in our days. Many people are very conversant with this particular gift.

But one thing I would love to call to our notice is the fact that it is the GIFTS and not GIFT of healings and I believe the reason for this is simply because of the fact that different people can be afflicted differently. However it doesn’t take more power of God to cure a cancer than it takes to end a headache. It is the self same sweet Holy Spirit at work, that same power that resurrected Christ from the grave. We are the ones that have a huge picture of sicknesses painted in our minds, God is able to heal any of them at any time if we would dare to stand in our authority and pray in the name of Jesus.

You would see this gift manifested through you as you exercise your authority today in Jesus name, amen.

THE WORKING OF MIRACLES

This gift is similar and different from the gifts of healings. Did I just say that? Okay to avoid confusion, let me differentiate them now.

Where the gifts of healings is someone having a tumor on the leg and by laying of hands tumor disappears, the working of miracles is when someone doesn’t have any leg at all and a new leg grows out. 

You get?

Like I have had a stomach ache twice already in the course of this study, I just laid hands and commanded the stomach to be well, and the last one just went. I wonder why these little imps won’t just go and rest.

…..that wasn’t an example of working of miracles please.

The working of miracles also goes beyond the human body as does healings, like when we saw Christ feed the 5,000 people in John 6:10-13, it was working of miracle. In verse 14 it says that when they have seen the MIRACLE that Jesus did……

When you make an axe head to float or go get money from the mouth of a fish, those are miracles at work.

THE GIFT OF FAITH

People call this the gift of special faith, I call it the gift of faith. You need faith for anything to work in your walk with God. Your very salvation is by faith and this is where many believers have missed it.

They don’t know how to be in faith, they are spiritual(faith) beings that operate by their feelings(flesh) how would that produce any results?

This gift of faith however helps to receive. It seems passive in a way, but as I said ALL these gifts are resident in every believer because we do not carry the gifts, we carry the Spirit that gives the gifts, He is the only anointing Christ got to do all He did on this earth and when He was going He promised us that we would do greater as He sends the Spirit to us John 14:12.

Someone would ask, but how can I do more than Christ Jesus? It is a reality you had better believed it, Jesus said it HIMSELF.

These gifts intertwine too as you might manifest the gift of faith and gifts of healing at the same time and the result is someone getting free from sickness, it glorifies God.

This discussion continues next Friday, be a part, drop your questions in the comment section or send a mail to christapoet@gmail.com and get set to enter into a magnificient era of your christian life.
Grace and Peace.
