There are 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit. There are Power gifts, Vocal gifts and Revelation gifts. These gifts cannot be manifested by the born again believer at his or her will. That means that I can’t just decide when I want to manifest a word of knowledge or a word of wisdom. These gifts are given by the Holy Spirit and operate as He will. Salvation is a free gift. You are saved by grace through faith, it is the free gift of God.
Works won’t save you. Works won’t bring about a manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit, yet there is a place for works. The place for works is after salvation. After someone gets saved, they are to begin the work that God has for him or her to do. Your job is to receive what has been given when it comes to salvation. Receiving salvation and not being ignorant of the gifts of the Spirit allows for the manifestation of those gifts in the life of the believer.
The gifts of the Spirit are special endowments or abilities. These special abilities edify the church and are a manifestation of the Spirit of God. Join me as I continue to teach on the gifts on Wednesdays at noon EST on iheart radio heaven 1410.
