The Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Written By: Samuel Mills
"The following Spiritual Gifts are often referred to as, "The Nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit." These are supernatural gifts and, according to scripture, are available to all Christians.
The Apostle Paul said: "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:
...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, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills." (1 Cor 12:1; 8-11)
The Nine Gifts of the Spirit Fall into three Divisions: The Gifts of Revelation - The Gifts of Inspiration - The Gifts of Power.
Gifts of Revelation:
1-The Word of Wisdom: A supernatural revelation, or insight into the divine will and purpose, often given by the Spirit to solve perplexing problems and situations.
2-The Word of Knowledge:
The Word of Knowledge is a supernatural revelation of Divine knowledge or insight in the Divine mind, will or plan, to know things that could not be known of oneself.
3-Discerning of Spirits:
This is a supernatural revelation or insight into the realm of spirits to detect them and their plans and to read the minds of men.
Gifts of Inspiration:
4-Prophecy: Prophecy is the supernatural utterance in the native tongue. It is a miracle of divine utterance, not conceived by human thought or reasoning. It includes speaking unto men to edification, exhortation, and comfort.
5-Divers Kinds of Tongues: The supernatural utterance in other languages that are not known to the speaker.
6-The Interpretation of Tongues: The supernatural ability to interpret in the native tongue what is uttered in other languages not known by the one who interprets by the Spirit.
Gifts of Power:
7-Gift of Faith: This is a supernatural ability to believe God without human doubt, unbelief, and reasonings.
8-The Gift of Healing: The healing of all manner of sickness by supernatural power, without human aid or medicine.
9-The Working of Miracles: Is supernatural power to intervene in the ordinary course of nature and to counteract natural laws if necessary.
According to Scripture, the Gifts of the Spirit are to continue to work through the Followers of Christ until His return."
