Understanding Spiritual Gifts

There are several spiritual gifts being given out by God to born again christians.

All these gifts come from the same spirit and the spirit is called The Holy Spirit.

‘Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit'[1 Corinthians 12:4].

After anyone receives Christ, at least one spiritual gift must be given to that person and this gift would serve as a sign.

‘Wherefore tongues{and other gifts} are for a sign…'[1 Corinthians 14:22].

Different gifts are for different purposes and God distributes these gift at His own will.

‘But all these worketh, that one and the selfsame spirit, dividing to everyone as He will'[1 Corinthians 12:11].

Spiritual gifts are not permanent.

‘…whether there be prophecies, they shall fail: whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away'[1 Corinthians 13:8].

Having a spiritual gift is not a guarantee that you will make heaven.

You can ask God for any particular spiritual gift and receive it.

‘But covet earnestly the best gift…'[1 Corinthians 12:31]

Spiritual gifts can be impacted from one person on another in different dimensions. Elijah impacted his on Elishah in double dimensions. Moses also impacted on Joshua. Paul also did.

‘And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them: and they spake with tongues and prophesied'[Acts 19:6].
