Spiritual Gifts 2
Spiritual gifts are the supernatural workings of God in the lives of the Hebrew and now in the church. God told Abraham He will destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and that is the word of knowledge. Many man of God like the prophets particularly Elijah and Elisha performed many miracles and today we call them the working of miracles. Jesus operates all these gifts as mentioned except for tongues and interpretation of tongues.
But your may say, “I don’t believe in spiritual gifts.” If you don’t believe in spiritual gifts, then I suppose you don’t believe in miracles. If you don’t believe in miracles, you are not alone. Every generation since the creation of man they are many who doesn’t believe in miracles. But since you believe in Jesus and had experience His reality, there is no reason why you don’t believe that our God is still working in our midst today.
There are 9 spiritual gifts mentioned in I Cor 12 and we need to understand that it is already working in the church and because there was chaos, Paul wrote to identify these spiritual activities and how they work. In most cases 2 or more gifts are at work together.
There are 3 categories to these 9 gifts.
