The gifts of the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 12:4-10

Gifts of tongues

The Spirit of God can come upon you and give you utterance for the purpose of communicating with other people.

1 Corinthians 14:2-3 When you speak in tongues, you speak to God, for the Spirit speaks to God…. Its a very powerful way of praying.

The Spirit of the Lord can put words in your mouth to speak to people that understand a language that you have never learnt in order to use you to pass on a message through you.

God can also use who spoke in tongues to also interpret them in order for the people listening to also be edified.

1 Corinthians 14:15

Romans 8:26….

We need to allow the Holy Spirit to pray through us. When you pray in the Spirit, you make intersessions according to the will of God, for He knows the mind of God.


A prophet is a spokes man for God~ In the old testament.

A prophet according to the new testament

1 Corinthians 12:10
1  Corinthians 14:3
A prophet edifies the Church.

1  Corinthians 12:20… Let 2 to three speak and others wheigh what has been said because; there are three sources of prophesy:

From the person~ human source.

From the devil, that’s why there are false prophets, the prophesy from the devil kills, steals and destroys

From God, the effect of a prophesy from God causes you to draw closer to God.
We should judge the prophesy, test every prophesy, don’t just follow them, of it’s for you, it will be confirmed and you will follow it and it will come to fulfillment.

Knowledge truth.

Word of wisdom

Word of Wisdom is an utterance from the Holy Spirit applying God’s word to a specific situation. Its also the ability from the Holy Spirit to give advice for a specific situation.

We need a word of Wisdom, so that we can be able to apply wise counsel to a situation at hand.

Mark 12:14

Married men need wisdom as they talk to their wives.

Wives need wisdom as they talk to their husbands.

You need to know how to speak, and when to say, and how to say it…

Word of knowledge

This utterance from the Holy Spirot revealing information about people, circumstances and the word of God.

God can reveal truth to you for your own consumption, or for someone else, but we ned wisdom.
We need the gift of Wisdom. If you are God fearing, put things right before God.

Discernment of Spirits

Acts 16:15…

We need discerning gifts to know what spirits are behind an act, they might even seam right,but by the Spirit, we can discern what is right or wrong.

The Holy Spirit wanst to use you, but you need to be whose.

The purpose of the gospel is not to embaras people, but it’s for life.

Acts 15:19

How to use the Spiritual gifts.

You can only write abuse by proper use

Use the Spiritual gifts when you are rightly motivated by the love of God.

Never sell the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Mathew 7:15-23, Don’t follow gifting, but you will know them by their fruit.

The Devil can imitate the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but won’t be able to imitate the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Lift up the master of the miracles, not the miracles. Lift up Jesus,He is the one performing the miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit in you.
