Spiritual gifts has become an interesting inquiry for a lot people in the Body of Christ particularly among the millennials. There has been a misuse, miseducation, and misinterpretation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Not one person has the sole interpretation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but there is a general consensus of the usage and existence of the gifts.
I suppose the birthing of the ideology came from past theologians who suggested the gifts of the Holy Spirit isn’t operable, because we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit within us. Because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, suggests even more so the operations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
Did the gift of prophecy die with the O.T. prophets? Did the gifts of interpreting dreams die with the prophets of the O.T. e.g. Daniel? The gifts of the Holy Spirit isn’t about the believer, but about the Spirit of God. (1Co 12:11) But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. The gifts in 1st Corinthians 12 can be categorized into three groups: Power Gifts, Revelation Gifts and Power Gifts.
These gifts are for any believer who desire to be used by God. Most of us have gifts that we have not recognized. In my younger years, before I recognize I had the gifts of prophecy, I would say something to someone and it would come to pass; and that was before I started preaching and teaching the Word of God. After I had been preaching and teaching for sometime, I began to study apostle and prophets and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Then the Lord showed me other gifts that I have. I was doing a revival service for senior citizen and Lord showed me in a vision Him healing a man who was deaf. At the close of the evangelist preaching and lady brought man up who was totally deaf in both of his ears.
I laid hands on his ears as Jesus did when He walked the earth. The man ears opened and he was able to hear even an whisper. Every gift of the Holy Spirit is an important gifts. The gift of helps is just important as the office of the Apostle. If things aren’t running smoothly in the background neither will it run smoothly out front.
