Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues

God, through the apostle Paul, tells us that He doesn’t want us to be ignorant of spiritual things: “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant” (1 Corinthians 12:1). Yet, so many of us are completely in the dark about the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit. What aContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (13) Interpretation of Tongues”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, toContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (12) Tongues — For Private and Public Use”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience

I’ve saved tongues and interpretation of tongues for last. There’s a lot of misunderstanding and ignorance with tongues, because Satan has attacked this gift probably more than any other. If we allow the devil to keep us in the dark, our most valuable prayer gift will be stopped. We’ll also have to break this intoContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (11) Tongues — An Initial Experience”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (9) The discerning of Spirits

So, we’ve covered the first two revelation gifts — the gift of the word of wisdom and the gift of the word of knowledge. Today we will cover the third of the gifts that reveal something. These gifts reveal something that we couldn’t know in the natural. They’re given as the Spirit wills, and weContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (9) The discerning of Spirits”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (8) The Word of Knowledge

The first of the revelation gifts that we studied was the word of wisdom. We’ll continue our study with the second of the three gifts that reveal something – the word of knowledge. The word of knowledge is a supernatural revelation by God’s Spirit of certain facts in the mind of God. The reason whyContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (8) The Word of Knowledge”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (7) The Word of Wisdom

I want to reiterate that we can organize the gifts, or manifestations, of the Spirit into three groups of three gifts each. The first group, and the one we just completed, is the power group. They are gifts that do something: The gift of (special) faith. The gift of working of miracles. And the giftsContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (7) The Word of Wisdom”

With that in mind, I make it my business to find out what the Bible has toContinue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (6) Gifts of Healings”

Now Concerning Spiritual: (5) The Working of Miracles

What is a miracle? Miracle is a word we use for many things. There are miracle formulas, drugs, and detergents; we call a beautiful flower a miracle, and a new born baby a miracle. But really, all these things are made and produced through natural and physical laws. In and of themselves they’re not miracles.Continue reading “Now Concerning Spiritual: (5) The Working of Miracles”
