Spiritual gifts

What really works spiritual gifts?

 

DISCLAIMER:

  • The teachings are not designed to teach you how to operate in your spiritual gifts, but how to submit yourself to the authority of your gifts and for what it is to be used for.
  • This is well stated in Ephesians 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
  • These teachings are designed to enlighten you to evaluate yourself with the Spirit of God that has “indwelled” you to know how to operate perfectly in Him with His approval as the scripture in Isaiah 55:11 states So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
  • If the Word of God in you is submitted to and properly adhered to, you should be able to spiritually sow the Word(s) of God to His people as well as to those who are to come.
  • To defeat the devil in your Will you must surrender all to the Spirit of God, that is His Holy Spirit, in order to operate and function as Christ Jesus did as a Son, so shall you do also.

  • Spiritual means relating to or affecting the human soul and spirit, as opposed to materialistic or physical things.
  • Operation means the fact or condition of functioning or being active.
  • Function is to work or operate in a proper or particular way.
  • Spiritual gifts are just as it says “spiritual gifts”. These spiritual gifts are the gifts of the Holy Spirit, Ephesians 1:19; Colossians 1:29
  • Spiritual gifts are for the spiritual good! The spiritual good means that which is in accordance to the Will of God’s purpose, plan, and intent in you for Him in earth.
  • Spiritual gifts are an endowment or extraordinary power given by the Holy Spirit. Acts 1:8
  • The Holy Spirit is the “spiritual illumination of the Spirit of God”.
  • The work of the Holy Spirit along with the diversities of operation in the gifts is conviction of sin, conviction of righteousness, and conviction of judgment. St John 16:7-11.
  • Spiritual gifts are of the Holy Spirit, not intuition, not gut feelings, not from energy, but only from the Holy Spirit of the Spirit of God.
  • There are no feelings involved in the administration and ministering of the gifts of the Spirit or in displaying the fruit of the Spirit, (Galatians 5:22-24).
  • The impulses of the “feelings” are incorporated within the flesh’s 5-sense knowledge, its carnality, and the devil.
  • Impulse is a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act; a driving or motivating force.
  • Unreflective means not engaged in or characterized by reflection or thought; not reflecting light.
  • The flesh is the devil’s dwelling and habitation, used to portray him as being a part of the Will of God; appearing as an angel of light in darkness; having a form of godliness – a familiar spirit to act out the Holiness of the Spirit of God.
  • The flesh is very deceitful in the usage of the spiritual gifts, therefore the Spirit of God will not use the flesh to operate or function in.
  • Spiritual gifts are individualized for the manifestation of the Spirit of God which is given to every man to profit for good.
  • Spiritual gifts don’t operate in a liar, a compromiser, practical common sense, or one that operates in any part(s) of Galatians 5:19-21.
  • Spiritual gifts work by the same Spirit: God which works all in all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PART II

Let’s study the Word in scriptures and apply them to your spirit man:

1 Corinthians 12; 13; 14

Ephesians 4:1-16

Acts 6:1-7, a definition of the gift of administration

 

The Church

 

  • The Church is made up of a body of unified believers with Christ Jesus being the Head of the Body. 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:22-23; 4:12; Colossians 1:24; 2:19
  • The Spirit forms the Church by baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, imparts the gifts for service to every member of the body; guides the members in their service; and is Himself the power of the service. St Matthew 1:18; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, 27, 30; St Luke 2:27; 4:1; Acts 16:6-7.
  • Unified means make or become united, uniform, or whole.
  • The gifts of the Spirit within the aiding of the fruit of the Spirit make up the Church.
  • Romans 12:3-13 compares the Church to the human body and its various duties as the Church.
  • The Body of Christ should only operate and function as the Bride of Christ.
  • The Spirit abides in the company of believers who constitute the House of Prayer making them corporately, a temple of God. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
  • No man can say that Jesus is LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.

 

The Holy Spirit (The Holy Ghost)

 

  • The Holy Spirit is revealed as a divine Person. St John 14, 16
  • Indwell means to inhabit; to abide within.
  • To each believer is given a spiritual enablement and capacity for a specific service.

 

  1. God all throughout the Bible for our examples has chosen to use vessels to put His Spirit “upon”, “with”, and “in”. St John 14:17; St Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8.
  2. The Holy Spirit comes upon whom He Will, without reference to conditions in them.
  3. The Holy Spirit comes with indicating the approach of God to the Soul of the Spirit man; convicting of sin; regenerating, as He imparts faith; and presents Christ Jesus as the object of faith in all mankind. St John 3:16; 14:14; Ephesians 2:8.
  4. The Holy Spirit indwelling in is the abiding presence of the Spirit in the believer’s body, to give victory over their flesh, as He creates in them the Christ like character and nature; to help their infirmities; inspire to pray; give conscious access to the Presence of the Father; acknowledge son ship; applying the Word of God to cleanse, sanctify, and deliver; as He comforts and intercedes; etc. 1 Corinthians 6:19; Romans 8:2-4; Galatians 5:16-17; 22-23; Romans 8:26; Ephesians 6:18; 2:18; Galatians 5:6; Ephesians 6:26; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2; Acts 9:31; St John 16:14.

 

The different gifts of the Holy Spirit that are “indwelled” by the Spirit: 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. There perfection is through “spiritual indwelling”.

 

Gifts of the Holy Spirit are:

 

  • Word of Wisdom
  1. The source of Wisdom and for Wisdom is God
  2. Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise
  3. James 1:5-8
  4. Wisdom is a power that gives the ability to discern inner qualities and relationships; in sight; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just
  5. Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
  6. The fear of the Lord is wisdom means reverential fear of God as being the controlling motive of life, in matters spiritual and moral; reverential fear of God that is love and respect; reverential fear of His power and righteous retribution; reverential fear that dreads displeasing Him; etc.
  7. To depart from evil is understanding means whatever is evil in character, base, in distinction (wherever the distinction is observable); whatever is evil in influence and effect, malignant; what is useless, incapable, and bad; what is destructive, injurious; profoundly immoral and wicked; etc.
  8. Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
  9. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
  10. Hosea 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them? The ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

 

Common sense is not a gift of the Holy Spirit

  • Common sense is not a gift of the Holy Spirit!
  • Common sense does not employ faith!
  • Common sense does not apply or employ the Spirit of the Lord.
  • Common sense is described as the ability which humans process sense-perception, memories, and imagination in order to reach many types of basic judgments.
  • Common sense is practical judgment concerning every day matters.
  • Practical means of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas.
  • Practical is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge using the 5-senses that is shared by all people. It’s a common thing to do!

 

  • Word of Knowledge
  1. Spiritual knowledge that causes you to exalt the Lord in all things, everything.
  2. Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
  3. Spiritual acquaintances and/or relationship with God. A personal knowledge or experience with Him.
  4. Hosea 6:3 KJV Amplified Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord [to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him], His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the [heavy] rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.
  5. Word of knowledge is associated with the ability to teach faith in wisdom, revelation knowledge and in prophecy.
  6. Spiritual knowledge is not given to be a hindrance to mankind, instead of a help to mankind.
  7. Obedience is a Kingdom key and a condition of receiving the gift of word of knowledge.
  8. St John 7:16-17 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent Me. 17 If any man will do His Will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
  9. Spiritual knowledge liberates the Soul from ALL
  10. St John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  11. Spiritual knowledge leads to eternal life.
  12. St John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.
  13. Philippians 3:10 That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death;
  14. Colossians 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PART III

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

  • Faith
  1. There is a difference between the gifts of faith and saving faith that is required for salvation.
  2. The gift of faith just believes God in whatever the situation, circumstance, or issue is, without reservations. It is not a “transactional faith”.
  3. All believers have been given “saving faith”, but not all believers are given the “gift of faith”. One must grow its faith!
  4. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace ye are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  5. Saving faith in Christ secures salvation. St John 3:15; 3:36
  6. Saving faith’s belief on the Son of God gives us everlasting life, and without it we won’t see life everlasting. St John 5:24-25; 12:46; 20:31; Romans 10:9-10
  7. Romans 12:3 speaks of “a measure of faith” according to God He has dealt to every spirit man.
  8. This measure of faith starts in hearing the Word of God! Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
  9. Hearing increases one’s faith to spiritually grow in the full stature of Christ Jesus. This is the transformation process, if permitted!
  10. Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
  11. 2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight):
  12. Hebrews 11:1; James 2:17
  13. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

PART IV

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Faith is a necessity for any gift of the Spirit. Faith employs love. God is love. Perfect love casts out all fear.

Because some believers lack faith in all they do for God they are not effectual in their gifts and calling. It is impossible to give God pleasure, glory, and honor through your vessel if you don’t believe.

In the gifts, that is being a gift and possessing gifts is not yours until you understand it and know how to hear the voice of the authority over the gifts.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to everyone as “a grace gift” called Charisma, a gift of grace on the part of God. Gifts are given because of “grace”, God’s unmerited favor toward all mankind. They are given to everyone to “profit withal” (meaning in addition, as a further factor or consideration).

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are given with the favor of God, His Grace which we all have received without any merit of our own. In other words, your fasting and praying didn’t get you the gift(s); your suffering and sacrifice didn’t get you the gift(s); being a good servant to your Pastor or 1st Lady does not give you the gift(s) of the Holy Spirit; and we don’t receive them just because someone laid hands on us. The gift(s) are given to every man severally as the Lord God Will. They are not given based upon merits of our own!

Our disqualification is our qualification!

Salvation is a gift given by the Grace of God to be bestowed upon sinners. Romans 5:15-21.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon believers, that which is imparted by the Spirit into the spirit of man. Romans 12:4-21.

The gift of the Holy Spirit along with the gifts is for the operation in the Church.

 

  • Gifts of Healing
  • All spiritual gifts must operate in faith and love, but the gifts of healing will require a special measure of faith and love.
  • Those that have this gift are compassionate toward the sickness of others and prayerful toward them.
  • This gift reveals the intimacy of God’s heart and compassion to heal sickness and torment from illnesses. It reveals that He is near and is concerned about your sickness.
  • Spiritual healing must take place first in order for the body to take on the healing.
  • 3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
  • Health is promised to the obedient! To be healthy, sound, in good health; whole.
  • Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently harken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
  • Deuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
  • Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
  1. This gift is inspired and will serve when you have the ability to act as an intermediary in faith, prayer, and by the laying on of hands for the healing of the physical, mental, and spiritual sicknesses. Or stand
  2. Intermediary is a person who acts as a link between people in order to bring about an agreement or reconciliation; a mediator; intermediate.
  3. Proxy is a person empowered by another to act for him, the office or right to do so to act, or the instrument conferring it.
  4. The intermediary or the one standing in proxy must have faith to know God; know that God is a healer, as well as for them self; know that God will heal and not be deterred when He chooses not to heal an individual.
  5. To serve as an attendant to care for the sick, to treat, cure, heal spiritually.
  6. This gift will come with the spirit of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; the spirit of counsel and might; and the spirit of intercession.
  7. Our prayer should be, Lord don’t heal me for me but heal me for your Namesake. God’s namesake is His reputation. So we must succeed to protect His reputation.
  8. When we publicize what God has told us to do, as well as walk in obedience to His Way we put “pressure” on Him by faith. God cannot resist faith! Faith is Himself!
  9. St Matthew 10:1; St Mark 3:15; 16:18
  10. Acts 3:1-10; 9:32-35; 28:7-10
  11. Hebrews 7:25; James 5:14-16

INTRODUCTION

 

            Emotions do not move or bring the Kingdom of God into existence in the earth’s realm. Emotionalism from the flesh seems to govern the Christian believers today. They say they “feel God’s presence in the flesh! They say the presence of the Spirit of God is likening to your intuition (the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for a conscious reasoning), a gut feeling (an instinct, or intuition; an immediate basic feeling or reaction without logical rationale), or a surge of positive energy that feels good.

            These feelings stem from the 5-sense knowledge of the natural, better known as the flesh of man. None of these feelings in the natural man apply nor employ the Spirit of the Lord God.

            Emotions lie in the soul of man. They are one of the 3 parts that make up the Soul of man: the mind; the Will; and the emotions.

            Our emotions should be governed and or controlled by the Holy Spirit incorporated in your spirit, giving God total control over the Soul of the spirit man.

            The Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost will never at any time use the sensations of the flesh man to operate in the ministry of His Holy Spirit.

            The flesh is animated by the Spirit to demonstrate, as well as act out the Presence of the Spirit of God without any Will of the flesh. Therefore, your feelings are dull and numb to the Holy Spirit and His uses in ministry.

            The flesh is carnal! It is a hostile enemy to the Spirit of God! It has to die to the use of the Holy Spirit.

            The flesh is a perpetrator that only carries out harmful, illegal, and immoral acts against the Spirit of God through its works in Galatians 5:19-21.

 

  • Working of Miracles
  • St Matthew 11:2-6
  1. We are miracles in the works!
  2. Miracles are designed as a ministry of the Holy Spirit for the spirit man to know the power of the Lord God.
  3. Miracles are our witness acknowledging Christ as the Messiah.
  4. Right now religion precedes and preoccupies the believers until the Kingdom comes. But when we realize that religion is just a form of godliness that denies the actual power of God, we will then see the Kingdom and our King. The former king (i.e. the world, the flesh, the devil, its systems, and ungodly men, etc.) will have to yield to the new King or flee.
  5. Miracles are the evidence that another government is taking dominion.
  6. Miracles are dominion over the earth that is the very Presence of the Spirit of God “inhabiting” the earth’s realm. The earth has become His place of environment, His place of occupancy. His inhabitance dominates because He is Holy!
  7. The Kingdom of God dominating the environment of the earth is a miracle through the vessel(s) He has chosen to inhabit in the earth realm.
  8. Miracles are to testify of the Divine possibilities of God and of the impossibilities of human beings without the Spirit of God.
  9. For example, it’s like the spirit of worship when He inhabits!
  10. This is why man-made worship is a “practiced joke”! It is the opposite of worship! It is self-praise, where we take the credit for all; it is self-credit that tells the world it is all about you and you have brought yourself this far; it is selfish pride; it is self-worship. This is what made Lucifer fall, self-pride, self-centered, that says it’s all about me.
  11. Let me talk about worship for a minute or two here!
  12. Because the Spirit of the Lord’s presence dominates within you and around you and there is silence, not singing, music playing and loud chants, etc. There is an oneness in the atmosphere that signifies His Holiness is present and is now in our midst.
  13. The scripture in Habakkuk 2:20 says But the Lord is in His holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before Him.
  14. Silence reverences God and His presence because His presence has filled the temple, meaning you, me, and all the elements around bow down to presence of His Spirit. The King has entered in!
  15. Today’s worship is too noisy for the Presence for the Lord to enter in, along with the inability for all to be in one accord.
  16. Worship is not an act to perform! Worship is spiritual! Worship is Holy!
  17. Worship is an awareness of acknowledgment (accept or admit the existence or truth of) that comes to us and will make us respond in that acknowledgment that God is our Creator, our Soul’s Source, Sustainer, and owner of all things with the expression in thoughts of honor, gratitude, appreciation, thanksgiving, reverence, respect, and humility in the response of this knowledge. Not the ability to experience this knowledge yet, but just acknowledging the fact that you know it.
  18. Worship is a portrait of a total surrendered vessel that the Lord has inhabited in earth!
  19. Worship is acknowledging TOTAL DEPENDENCY ON GOD!
  20. The working of miracles produces and restores healing, blind eyes opening, lame to walk, dead raised, etc. means that the Kingdom has taken dominion over the earth and is correcting the cells, the blood, the breath, the organs, the nerves, etc. in the bodies of the citizens of the Kingdom of God.
  21. The gifts of healing and the working of miracles work together, but are yet different in operation and function.
  22. The working of miracles is that dunamis powers inherent ability that can instantaneously and completely heals. It is a healing and deliverance ability that goes beyond any laws of physics and beyond the natural laws of human reasoning and its abilities.
  23. The gifts of healing are healing that is a gradual process in progress.
  24. The working of miracles includes more than just healing from sickness, diseases, and its effects; but they both purify to heal the spirit man.
  25. When working miracles the Presence of the Spirit of God has come to dominate the earth to provide the need of the citizens of His Kingdom, His people and to leave no natural evidence to be found for the laws of physics or natural laws to figure out except they have to acknowledge God.
  26. God’s Presence and His Works defies laws in the earth realm.
  27. The Bible gives us many examples of miracles performed. For example:
  28. Joshua 10:7-14 Joshua commanded the sun and the moon to stand still.
  29. 2 Kings 20:1-11 Hezekiah was given a sign to confirm the Word of God spoken regarding his personal deliverance from sickness with a promise to live 15 more years.
  30. December 25, 1993 or 1992 I saw the Lord stop time and death as my car hit a bridge covered with ice traveling at a speed of 70 miles an hour or so. This is truly a miracle experienced!

 

  • Prophecy
  • 1 Corinthians 14, prophecy is commended
  1. The gift of prophecy is having the ability to receive a divinely inspired message from the Spirit of the Lord God and deliver it to the Church. It makes known the Heart of God to the edifying of the Church.
  2. Prophecy is the speaking forth of the mind and counsel of God; the forth-telling of the Will of God whether with reference to the past, the present, or the future.
  3. Prophecy is spoken in the form of exhortation, correction, disclosure of secret sins, future events, to comfort, inspiration, and or other revelation knowledge given to perfect the saints, for the working of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ.
  4. Prophecy edifies the Church.
  5. Prophesying is greater than just speaking in tongues except the interpretation is there to edify the Church.
  6. Prophecy and the Prophets must understand and know the mind of God and not the Hand of God.
  7. The Hand of God deals with His Acts, whereas the Mind of God deals with His Ways.
  8. This gift is to those that are sensitive to both the prompting in obedience to the Holy Spirit and the need of the Church. In doing so and being led by the Spirit the Church will be built continually together in unity.
  9. A believer can be a chosen instrument of God to accomplish God’s purpose and may have the gift of prophecy only and not necessarily have the office of a prophet!
  10. Pastors can have the gift of prophecy and are not necessarily have the office of a prophet.
  11. Everyone that prophesies is not necessarily a prophet!
  12. This is where a lot of confusion has taken place with the believers and in the House of Prayer when the Spirit of the Lord comes “upon” a vessel, we assume that they are a Prophet, when in fact their vessel is just being used to allow the Spirit of the Lord God to rest upon them to speak His heart only for the moment at hand.
  13. 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
  14. There is no self-choosing of which gift you will operate and function in, but is given by God to every spirit man severally as He Wills.
  15. Gifts of the Spirit should not be coveted! Don’t be a Prophet today, then an Apostle tomorrow, or as some say “I’m operating as an Evangelist or Teacher or Pastor” right now.
  16. Prophesying is for the believer and tongues are for the unbeliever as a sign that God is among His people, as He reveals their heart to them.
  17. Old Testament prophets were used purely for the foretelling of the coming of the Kingdom of God; His proclamation of His Divine purpose of salvation and glory to be accomplished in the future through the coming Messiah.
  18. New Testament prophets are preachers preaching of the Divine counsels of grace that is already accomplished and of God’s purposes in the future foretold. In other words, Jesus is already here and has completed the work God had assigned to His hands.
  19. The Old Testament has been fulfilled and is used as a reference only to the New Testament’s furthering of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  20. 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 20 Despise not prophesying’s. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
  21. Prophecy is for the edifying of the Church and should not be controlled by protocol that is tradition and religions systems of beliefs that governs a form of godliness and denies the power of God, His Presence, and His manifestations of His Will for the Church.
  22. Testing the Spirits of Prophets, 1 John 4:1-3
  23. Through spiritual discernment we should try the spirits of the Prophets and the spirit of those that are Prophesying to ensure that they are not compromising the supremacy of the Word of God through this gift by trying to be superior to all and overall in authority, power, or status.

INTRODUCTION

 

Discern is to perceive or recognize (something.)

Perceive is to become aware or conscious of (something); come to realize or understand; to interpret or look on (someone or something) in a particular way.

Discerning of Spirits is a skill in judging.

What is a skill? A skill is the ability to do something well; expertise; a particular ability.

 

Hebrews 4:12, the power of the Word of God serves also as a “discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. A searcher that discerns your heart!

Hebrews 5:12-14, these verses of scripture speaks of Christian teachers being ignorant of the Word to teach it. This is spiritual immaturity!

Verse 14 speaks of the spiritually matured with spiritual discernment having the ability to have your “senses” exercised to discern both good and evil.

 

  • Discerning of Spirits
  1. Discerning of spirits is judging by evidence whether spirits are evil or of God; capable of discriminating between good and evil.
  2. Discerning of spirits is not a feeling!
  3. Discernment is a process and function of the Soul of the spirit man (that is male and female).
  4. It is not a fleshly function! The 5-senses of the flesh which are of the natural part of man are not equipped to determine good and evil. Galatians 5:19-21 says so! These are the works of the flesh!
  5. The ability to spiritually identify falseness, to distinguish between right and wrong motives and the spiritual forces, better known as principalities at work in situations, circumstances, and issues against the Will of God in your life in earth.
  6. This gift is inspired by the Holy Spirit to enable believers to clearly recognize and distinguish between the influence of God, the world, the flesh, and the devil (Satan).
  7. This gift is for the Church to be used by the body of unified believers to warn the Body in times of danger, false doctrine, false prophets, and false apostles, along with the evil imagination of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
  8. In other words, those that are perpetrators that say they are in the Body, as well as those that are trying to infiltrate the Body from the outside.
  9. Perpetrators are those who carry out harmful, illegal, or immoral acts. Wolves in sheep clothing!
  10. This gift along with Faith, Love, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding are the least understood and in operation by the Christian believers in being exercised, followed, and in trusting the decisions and or conclusion of the Spirit in these gifts.
  11. This gift is also used to rightly divide the Word in Spirit and in Truth along with Wisdom.
  12. The Christian believers lack this gift terribly!
  13. 1 John 4:1-6
  14. St Matthew 16:21-23
  15. Acts 5:1-11; 16:16-18

 

  • Divers Kinds of Tongues
  • Divers kinds of tongues are not your prayer language, but can be used in intercessory prayer.
  • These tongues are languages never learned or spoken by the one speaking.
  1. Divers’ means in many ways.
  2. The ability to speak in another language unknown to the speaker, but not the hearer, in order for them to hear and know the heart of God toward them.
  3. Acts 2:4-13
  4. Whereas Divers Kinds of Tongues is speaking in another language such as French, Chinese, Spanish, languages that wasn’t learned to an individual who speaks that language (And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue {language} wherein we were born – Acts 2:7-8).
  5. The Spirit of God gives His expression of utterance through the Tongues that will need to be spoken to the believers as well as the unbelievers.
  6. Tongues are a sign for the unbelievers, not the believers.
  7. Whereas prophesying serves not for the unbeliever, but to them that believe.
  8. This is the purpose of the tongues. 1Corinthians 14:22; St Mark 16:17
  9. Tongues are to be used to speak to God to edify oneself, 1 Corinthians 14:4.
  10. Tongues are evident that bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God Romans 8:16
  11. Tongues are used as the Spirit of God witness in agreement to His Word in you, as you witness the Word, teach the Word, minister the Word, and pray, praise, worship, etc.
  12. To avoid confusion in the House of Prayer, if speaking in unknown tongues, let it be done by two, or at the most by three and let one interpret. 1 Corinthians14:27
  13. This gift is used to intercede in prayer, war in prayer, speak, witness, or minister to an individual that speaks another language. The Holy Spirit in you will speak to a person in their language.
  14. Even in persecution the Holy Spirit promises to express, inspire what you shall speak, St Matthew 10:19-20. 19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

 

  • Interpretation of Tongues
  1. Interpretation of tongues is given so that the Church can understand and receive the message from the Spirit of God in clarity.
  2. 1 Corinthians 14:26
  3. Interpretation is to explain, expound, to loose, and to solve a spiritual message that is not understandable in the natural.
  4. To utter the expressed inspiration of the Words of God through the gift of tongues with and through a believer that can explain and loose the utterance of the Spirit of God to the Church.
  5. This gift is given to one to interpret what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church.
  6. 1 Corinthians 14:28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

 

It is impossible to just teach seriously about spiritual gifts without referring to 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, where there is debate back and forth about the gender of a woman have authority in the House of God.

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

 

  • The Church is spiritual.
  • The Church is the Body of Christ made up of a body of “unified believers”.
  • We are the Church made up of the “spirit man” who is in male and female or man and woman.
  • The women termed here are married women.
  • Who else will speak if the spirit man housed in the gender female woman does not speak?
  • Will the Spirit of God keep silent because the spirit man housed in the gender male man does not or won’t speak for the Spirit of God?
  • Does the Spirit of God keep silent because the gender male man won’t consecrate himself to sanctify for His use?

 

Galatians 3:26-29

26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

 

  • There is no spiritual impartiality in the Spirit of God between the gender man and woman.
  • Impartiality means equal treatment of all rivals or disputants; fairness.
  • Acts 10:34-35 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
  • The spirit of man is the same spirit in the male and female gender.
  • Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He Him: male and female created He them.
  • Partiality is forbidden. Partiality is unfair bias in favor of one thing or person compared with another; favoritism.
  • Woman is the reflection of man
  • The woman should not speak or teach in any way that will violate her gender role.

 

1 Timothy 2:8-15

8 I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or god, or pearls, or costly array.

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

 

  • The spirit of man in woman, female gender may pray, prophesy, teach, preach, speak, be in leadership under the authority of the Holy Spirit as long as she does it descent and in order according to the Holy Spirit dwelling in her.
  • It is difficult for the woman, married or single to keep silent in the House of Prayer’s meetings, because Paul really commended women speaking in the House of Prayer (the Church).
  • Today, all church members should exercise self-control not only in the context of the tongues and prophecy.
  • In Corinth there were married women causing “disturbance” at church meetings. Paul wanted silence on the part of the married women, whose husbands were present in the assembly.
  • This silence would express their subordinate relations to their husband. Wives submit yourselves to your own husbands, as unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:22
  • Paul did permit the participation of other women when adorned properly, 1 Corinthians 11:2-16.
  • During these times the Corinthian married women were uneducated and had nothing of value to say. They were not to interrupt the proceedings by asking questions. Asking questions should be done only at home to their husbands.
  • The fact that married women then being uneducated was a cultural reality in the first century. This type of condition no longer exists!
  • Women did in the early church (the House of Prayer) did speak, pray in tongues, and prophesy.
  • The issue of self-control applies equally to men and women and appears more related to the excesses of speaking in tongues and prophecy than in anything in 1 Corinthians 14.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These women demonstrated the vitality of women’s witness in early Christianity:

  1. Priscilla, the most notable as a missionary and church leader. She and her husband, Aquila were tent makers like Paul. * They overseer the church that met in their house. *They provided support for Paul and his mission in several cities in the form of patronage, teaching and preaching. *They had significant influence in/to the gospel of Apollos. 1 Corinthians 16:19; 2 Timothy 4:19; Acts 18:26.
  2. Chloe, associated with Paul and Corinth. *Paul held her in high esteem for her leadership abilities and faithfulness. *She was a woman of status. *She was the head of her household, possibly a widow. *She was well-to-do. *She had the means and desire to sponsor emissaries to Paul. 1 Corinthians 1:11-12.
  3. Phoebe, a deacon, a church leader at Cenchreae, one of Corinth’s harbors. *In Paul’s letter in Romans 16:1-2 Paul commends her and welcome her in the Lord as is “fitting for the saints”, and ask to help her in whatever she may require from them, for she had been a benefactor to many as well as to him. *Phoebe’s roles were highly significant. *Her responsibilities as a deacon would have been the same as that of a male deacon. *In the early church a deacon had specific roles as a leader and official; female deacons did not just minister to women or the sick. *As a benefactor or patron, Phoebe had great influence on the early church in the Corinthians region. *She used her influence from her wealth and social standing to resolve any difficulties that might arise for the congregation.

 

A woman’s weakness is her ability to be deceived! This is why a woman will never have the authority over a man because of the deception.

INTRODUCTION

 

The diversity of the Spiritual gifts is called to service the Body of Christ by the same Spirit, which is the Holy Spirit.

The diversity of these Spiritual gifts known to us as the 5-fold ministry called to be a gift to serve the Body of Christ to bring the whole body into spiritual maturity.

The diversity of these Spiritual gifts called to service the Body of Christ by the same Spirit, called with and in the likeness of Christ Jesus to operate and function in the assigned ministry that is governed by the Holy Spirit: to edify, to comfort, and to encourage the Body of unified believers, as well as those to come; with an the effect upon unbelievers to show that the secrets of a man’s heart is known to God, to convict sin, and to constrain to worship.

The diversity of these Spiritual gifts to the Body of Christ is to equip the saints to come into the unity of one faith and knowledge of the Son of God, as the perfect man Christ Jesus which dwells in Him the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

The Godhead is the divine nature of God. The fullness of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is God!

Colossians 2:9-10 For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.

            Ephesians 4:11-16 describes the House or the Body, if you will in its perfection with Christ as the Head.

 

Ephesians 4:11-13 11 And he gave to some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

 

  • The gifts of the spirit were given in diversity (variety; a range of different things).
  • The diversity of spiritual gifts were given to the Body to be a blessing in demonstrating, displaying, and portraying Ephesians 4:12-13.
  • This is our job to further the completed work of Christ Jesus in building the Church in the earth, and allow it to be controlled and governed by and from the Spirit of God’s Kingdom.

Apostles (Governor)

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Apostles, called, chosen, and appointed by Himself to be special messengers. St Mark 1:17; 2:14
  • Apostolos is literally means “one sent”. It is a military term “apostalate”.
  • Apostles execute the position “of who sent him/her”. If you ask them what is their message they should have a message as a sent one.
  • They lead by Christ’s example. 1 Thessalonians 1:5-7; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-9
  • Every Apostles message is crafted for certain demographic areas, which are a particular sector of a population. And every Apostle has a message for and to that demographic area.
  • Apostles have a demographic message that is to pioneer new Houses of God and ministries through discipleship, planting, overseeing, teaching, and training, etc.
  • An Apostle’s life is the embodiment of their demographic message. Embodiment is the representation or expression of something in a tangible or visible form.
  • The Apostle’s life must be the visible message of the Word of God and its mission of assignment assigned by the Spirit of God for the providential (involving divine foresight or intervention) region or territory assigned.
  • Apostles are “gifted and graced” to speak a word, a message in a certain area or generation, and they execute that position.
  • They please God, not men. 1 Thessalonians 2:4; Galatians 1:10
  • Their fruit manifest the living God. 2 Corinthians 3:1-3
  • Apostles are taught by the Spirit of God. Galatians 1:11-12
  • Apostles only execute what they were sent to do because they are always on a mission.
  • Apostles are mission minded. Apostles are soldiers.
  • They minister in the power of God, not the wisdom of men. 1 Thessalonians 1:5; St Mark 16:20; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; 1 Corinthians 4:20
  • Apostles will come with a word of rebuke!
  • They don’t “flatter” men! 1 Thessalonians 2:5; 2 Corinthians 2:17
  • Apostles have resurrection power.
  • They exhort, comfort, and chasten as necessary. 1 Thessalonians 2:11; Hebrews 12:5-8; 1 Corinthians 5:1-5
  • Their joy is seeing the Will of God being done in the earth; soul’s won; and the Church in the earth spiritually growing and glorifying the Lord your God. 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20; 2 Corinthians 1:14; Philippians 4:1
  • Apostles have to love unconditionally, even when you’re hurt. You must be able to separate your emotions from the Spirit.
  • They are gentle with the Saints. 1 Thessalonians 2:7
  • Apostles must be able to say who they are. Apostles must be able to change the atmosphere.
  • An Apostles work will speak for them. They are identified by their spiritual authority. 2 Corinthians 12:12
  • They are often self-supporting, in other words a lack of funding from others does not deter them from their mission. 1 Thessalonians 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:8-10; Acts 20:33-34; 2 Corinthians 12:17-18
  • Miracles walk with Apostles!
  • They endure the hardship and persecution for the Church sake. 1 Corinthians 4:11-13
  • Know what type of Apostle you are called and chosen to be.
  • As an Apostle for Personal Touch Int’l Ministry we are called and chosen to teach, preach, and minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as we continue the ministry of Christ Jesus. We are to teach and disciple, not member but disciple God’s people as He adds them to the Body, the Kingdom of God and His citizenship; Kingdom living from within the Soul and Spirit; teach relationship with God as we escort disciples into the Presence of God. We are an escort service! That will take the precautionary measures of the Spirit of God in the earth realm as He continues to establish the Church.
  • The role and function of the Apostle as a sent one, is sent to “govern” by conducting the policy, actions, and affairs of the Spirit of God through the Spirit of the Word of God in the earth realm for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the Body of Christ, which is the Church.

 

PART VIII

INTRODUCTION

 

            As with all gifts of the Holy Spirit and the diversity of spiritual gifts given to the Church for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, we must know how to function and operate according to the Will of God in Christ Jesus in order to serve as a gift to be a gift.

            We lack the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit along with being the diverse of a spiritual gift called, appointed, and anointed by the Spirit of God Himself because of our inability to wait on the call of God with His training and teaching to do according to His Will.

Instead we go off of a form of godliness which is based from “tradition and religion” way of doing the so-called Will of God.

It is because we are creatures of habit and we truly believe that what we see one do we can do also.

Well in this case of spirituality this is where the “rubber meets the road” and you will not be able to function and operate as you see one another do without the forwarding of the Spirit of God to guide, lead, and instruct you in His Way.

The Lord said that “people walk in the fear of what they know” making it hard for them to function and operate according to the Will of God, because they desire the need for the approval of one another instead of trusting in the Spirit of God.

Therefore they will try to “seduce” the Word of God to meet their style of believing through a form of godliness with a familiar spirit.

Seduce means disloyalty; tempt; to lead astray; entice         

 

Prophets (Guide)

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Prophets inspired preachers and expounders (to explain or set forth in detail) of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Acts 13:1-5
  • Inspired means (of air or another substance) that is breathed in.
  • Prophets that God has raised up He has “breathed in” His Words!
  • Prophets are “raised up by the Spirit of God from among our brethren like unto them”. Not strangers or foreigners! God will put His words in their mouth and they shall speak to them what God has commanded. Deuteronomy 18:17-18.
  • The Lord will rise up a Prophet like unto Himself. Deuteronomy 18:15-22.
  • The word of the Prophet will come to pass when the Soul and Spirit of the believer hearken (hear, listen) to the Words of God spoken to them.
  • As a Prophet, God will make Himself known to him/her in a vision, and will speak to him/her in a dream. Numbers 12:5-9.
  • Nowadays Prophets have too much to say about nothing, that is natural or physical things or stuff more so than what God desires for the Body of Christ.
  • Today believers consider Moses as a Prophet but God said he was not!
  • One must know that God has inspired them to be raised up as a Prophet like Himself.
  • Prophets don’t guess and hope it right!
  • Prophets don’t get a feeling and run with that this hour, then the next hour or two they have no knowledge of what you’re referring to from what they have said.
  • Feelings are chemical reactions that change in us from one minute to another.
  • Feelings are of the 5-sense knowledge in the flesh realm.
  • Emotions stem from the soulish realm controlled by the levels of different chemicals.
  • Prophesying, preaching, teaching, or ministering from feelings and not from the foundation of the Spirit of God’s Heart for His people is illegal!
  • 2 Chronicles 20:20-22 this scripture will also help the “black man” to know that the battle belongs to the Lord and not to the race.
  • Prophets today should foretell in prophesy the Divine counsels (that is God’s advice), and future oracles (God’s response or message through all the written utterances through the Old Testament; the substance of Christian doctrine; the utterance of God through Christian teachers) of God to the Body.
  • Now, does God have anything against houses, land, cars, money, etc.? No, but His Word clearly states and tells us “BUT seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. St Matthew 6:33
  • Prophets of the Old Testament were the ones that the Spirit of God rested “upon” them to speak of the coming Messiah, God’s purpose and plan for Him and in Him.
  • Numbers 11:16-29; 12:2; Amos 3:7-8.
  • The New Testament Prophet is a foreteller, one whose gift enables him/her to speak edification, exhortation, and comfort to the Body.
  • Prophets gathered together should speak two or three, and let the other judge and if anything be revealed to another that is sitting nearby let the first hold his peace (keep silent). 1 Corinthians 14:29-30.
  • Prophets should prophesy one by one, that all may learn and be comforted. (verse 31).
  • Prophets that speak “presumptuously” and it does not come to pass are false prophets.
  • Explain “come to pass”! Meaning “what is happening or spoken is the result of a course of events” to come about, occur, or be fulfilled.
  • Presumptuous means a person and/or their behavior failing to observe the limits of what is permitted or appropriate for them to speak.
  • Prophets we cannot MAKE God do anything! STOP trying to do so!
  • The role and function of a Prophet as a “guide” is “for the edifying of the Body of Christ” through the Words that have been inspired by the breathe of God to be set forth in detail to the people of God from God’s Heart desired in the earth realm.
  • False prophets are pseudo prophets destined to arise as the supporters of the beast at the close of this age.
  • False prophets that speak a Word not in the name of the Lord or speak in the name of another god shall die. Deuteronomy 18:20.
  • False prophets are unfaithful ministers, false teachers; false shepherds that lead God’s flock astray, scatter them, and prey upon them instead of feeding them. Isaiah 56:10; St Matthew 5:19; Jeremiah 23:2; 50:6; Ezekiel 34:2
  • Are Prophets popular today as they were in the Old Testament? If so, what is their message from God for the Body (that is, the Church)?
  • Are there any genuine Prophets saying what God has really said?

 

Evangelists (Gatherer)

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Evangelists, preachers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; traveling missionaries. 2 Timothy 4:5; 1 Corinthians 9:25
  • Evangelist, a messenger of the good news that denotes a preacher of the Gospel. Acts 21:8
  • Evangelist should make full proof of their ministry for this is “a call to work”.
  • Full proof means complete, absolute, and total evidence of truth in this ministry. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
  • This ministry requires works that will prove this calling!
  • Evangelist, evangelize through the preaching of the Gospel that will lead souls to the conversion of the Gospel, Acts 8:5-6, 26-40
  • Evangelist must be wise to become soul-winners!
  • The work of the Evangelist requires special grace and will involve suffering and sacrifice.
  • This call to evangelize can never be for a person that is selfish and prideful.
  • Evangelist pleads the Blood of Jesus, the atonement for the salvation for the spirit and soul of man from their sins.
  • Plead means to make an earnest appeal; supplicate; beg; to declare oneself to be (guilty or not guilty) in answer to a change.
  • Atone means to make amends or reparation; reconcile; to be in agreement.
  • The ministry of the Evangelist is to comb the multitudes, harvesting their souls and healing their bodies through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  • The office of the Evangelist is needed in the body of every House of Prayer to prove Ephesians 4:12, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the Body of Christ.
  • The role and function of an Evangelist as a gatherer is “the work of the ministry”.
  • Their purpose is to sow seed as in the parable of the sower, St Matthew 13:4-23. This is the part which falls on the good ground that will be harvested in the soul of man in verse 23.
  • This Evangelistic ministry requires the 9 spiritual after the anointing has been received.
  • The anointing must be upon every position called into or else the Will of God in Spirit and in Truth will not be performed properly.
  • The anointing makes it possible for the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Truth to dwell and inhabit your vessel to allow the scriptures to be inspired of God, and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instructions in righteousness, and to make the spirit of man perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
  • 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
  • The anointing comes with the Holy Spirit and His ministries, and they are inseparable.
  • The anointing symbolizes the qualifications divinely imparted in the consecration of persons for the discharge of their office called into.

 

Pastors (Guard)

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Pastors, shepherds of His flock.
  • Pastors tend, and guide, as well as feed the flock of God.
  • Pastors feed the flock the spiritual food from the heart of God, Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
  • Jeremiah 23:4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.
  • This is the soul of man’s spiritual food.
  • Pastors are to exercise “oversight”, not lording over the flock of God. This involves tender care and vigilant superintendence.
  • Oversight is an unintentional failure to notice or to do something; the action of overseeing something.
  • Pastors are given by the Spirit of God with the Heart of God. A servant’s heart!
  • Pastors are as overseers to feed the Church of God which He purchased with His own Blood, Acts 20:28
  • 1 Peter 5:2-6 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
  • The role and function of the Pastor is to “guard” meaning to watch over in order to protect or control for the perfecting of the saints for the Shepherd, as a good under shepherd.

 

Teachers (Groomer)

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us
  • Teachers are spiritual instructors, Ezra 7:10
  • Teachers must seek the laws of the Lord God, to do them, and to teach them.
  • Teachers cannot teach what they don’t do.
  • Teachers cannot teach what they don’t believe in what they can do.
  • Teachers must have the power in ability to stand in the Word to be an example of the Word they teach.
  • Teachers cannot possess a spirit of fear that will compromise the Namesake of Christ Jesus.
  • The Spirit of the Teacher in their role and function must be to “equip the Body of Christ” by grooming, preparing, and training for a particular purpose in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Teachers must be anointed to teach the oracles of God.
  • The Teachers purpose is for the Soul of all mankind to be converted and return home to the Father.

SUMMARY

 

  • The “G” Factor:

Apostle                        Governor

Prophet                        Guide

Evangelist                   Gatherer

Pastor                          Guard

Teacher                        Groomer

 

The Apostle has the governing authority over the Church and its establishment, not the Bishop.

The Apostle as the governor has the authority to conduct the policy, plans, actions, and affairs of the Church, as the Spirit of Christ has appointed.

The Church is built upon the Apostles and the Prophets with Christ Jesus being the corner stone.

Ephesians 2:18-22

18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20 And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

 

The Church is Spiritual! It is God’s habitation in Spirit and in Truth.

The Church is the Spiritual Temple of the Spirit of God.

The Church is the spiritual unity in Christ.

 

The Prophet is a guide, a seer to the Church.

The Prophet is to be in direct contact with the Spirit of God to be a mouthpiece for God, serving as an intermediary between God and man to deliver messages or teachings from the Spirit of God.

The Prophet is a mediator; a person who acts as a link between God and man to bring about an agreement or reconciliation.

Psalm 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

 

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets

 

            The Spirit of the Prophet must be Christ Jesus, as well as all other diverse gifts.

St Matthew 13:57-58 And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

 

            The Evangelist, as a gatherer as previously said is needful in every House of Prayer.

            The Evangelist gathers as they bring the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Evangelist must be anointed by the Spirit of God to comb this world for the Souls of God.

The Evangelist is a worker for the furtherance of the Gospel.

If truly anointed by God, the Evangelist walks in the prophetic, as well as the other gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to get the work assigned to them by the Spirit of God complete.

 

The Pastor and the Teacher are the Guard and the Groomer for the soul of man.

The Teacher grooms the souls, bringing them into the guardian ship of the Pastor.

      The Pastor must serves as the guard over God’s flock.

      The Pastor can be prophetic and or a prophet.

 

God’s gift given to all mankind is His expression of honor; His respect and esteem shown upon the creation man.

In other words, in spite of it all, “God is still saying to all mankind I did not forget you”.

We should know now that the gift of the Holy Spirit comes with all the equipment of what God has prepared for mankind in the earth to bring him back into relationship with Him.

God has taken His ability and His right to do as God and given it to all mankind as a gift to be able to reconcile himself back to Him.

God has made it “easy” for all mankind to come back home to Him.

The Word of God tells us that we have not because we ask not.

James 4:2-4

2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

God first demonstrated His gift of love to all mankind by sending His Son Jesus to show us how to repent and come back home to Him. Jesus demonstrated and gave many examples of having a “desire” to love God with all our heart, soul, spirit, mind, and strength.

 

Amiss by definition means not quite right; inappropriate or out of place.

 

  • All the diversity of spiritual gifts should be Sons of God that exemplify the spiritual maturity of Christ’s perfection through the conversion of their soul being transformed by the Word of God.
  • All the diversity of spiritual gifts should possess the leadership ability and strength of the Spirit of Christ Jesus through the influence and directions from the Word of God, operating through the gifts of the Spirit that will cause them to focus on the vision and ideas of the Spirit of God in the earth realm.
  • All the diversity of spiritual gifts must know how to operate in their gifts as a gift!
  • The anointing through the Holy Spirit MUST BE upon and in each spirit of male man or female man in order to do the work and the Will of God in Christ Jesus.
  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit, as well as the production of the fruit of the Spirit must be anointed.
  • If there is no anointing, then a person will operate and function from their “feelings” in hopes that God will agree.
  • The anointing expresses the sanctifying influences of the Holy Spirit over and within the person in Christ.
  • Christ means “The Anointed One”. He is the one that anoints.
  • When the anointing comes upon you it begins the “acceptable time of the year of the Lord”. The day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound. Amplified KJV St Luke 4:19
  • St Luke 4:18-21
  • 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
  • 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
  • 20 And He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
  • 21 And He began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
  • Without the anointing to do the job it will be impossible to carry out the total task or assignment that God has called you to do.
  • The anointing is what will render you as being Holy. The anointing will separate you from all others to be in intimacy with God; and for you to become the priest of God in your assignment.
  • 2 Corinthians 1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
  • 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

 

Why did the Spirit of the Lord God give us these spiritual gifts?

  • Ephesians 4:12-13 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
  • His intention is to use these spiritual gifts to perfect and fully equip the Saints (His consecrated people), that they should know to do the work of ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ toward the building of Christ’s Body (the Church).
  • Until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the full and accurate knowledge of the Son of God that we might arrive at the mature manhood of the complete personality which is the standard height of Christ’s own perfection, the measure of the full stature of Christ and His completeness in us.
  • When we don’t grow, then we are spiritually immature. Spiritual immaturity is due to our inability to be unified in Christ as believers being converted to become Christ like in perfection, and in the fullness of the knowledge of Him in our souls.

 

To operate in your gift as a gift

  • How does one come to know so much about God’s movements? His Presence? His Devotion? His Desires? His Pleasures?
  • One must be in an intimate relationship with God’s Spirit.
  • One must be married to the Spirit of God.
  • One must be in relationship with Him and “in love” with Him to experience His love for the spirit man.
  • To be in love is to experience the love that you have vowed to love.
  • Flesh doesn’t know how to do this! It’s version of love is lust, because it “feels” love.
  • Love is not a feeling! Love is a “force decision generated by the Will” from the soul, not the 5-sense knowledge of the flesh.

 

Operation of the gifts – The marks of love – Love’s preeminence

  • The gifts of the Spirit and the gifts to the Body (the Church) only operate in love and by faith.
  • If you have never experienced love without a feeling then you won’t understand how to operate and function spiritually in your gift, to be a gift.
  • You must be a gift in order to operate and function as a gift!
  • There must be a level of intimacy in a relationship
  • The reason why the gifts to the Church are not operating and functioning in the earth realm as they should be is because of greed, jealously, covet, competition, along with all the other works of the flesh operating in the spirit man. In all of this there is no intimacy and no love!
  • How can you function without a Spirit of Intimacy?
  • Intimacy is close or confidential friendship; an intimate act
  • How can you love without a spirit of intimacy?
  • Genuine love and unconditional love that is the Body of Christ.
  • This is why the Bible uses marriage between a man and woman as being the visible representation of the invisible marriage between Christ and His Bride (The Church).

 

CLOSING

 

The way men and women portray and go through marriages in the earth realm is a poor, poor depiction of a spiritual process that would represent Christ and His Bride, the Church.

Men and women’s portrait of marriage is founded upon money, sex, ability to make one another look good in the flesh for the eyes of man, and so-called knowledge and ability to get ahead; just to be able to say, Look what I got!

The invisible marriage is solely about love and knowing how to stay in love and devoted one in love.

The Lord has demonstrated true love through His Son Jesus Christ, with an everlasting love. This is a love that we should vow in matrimony as being “until deaths do us apart”. This is our everlasting!

Visible relationships in marriages are not closely related and in confidential friendship because nine times out of ten the way you began that relations was through sins of the flesh, i.e. adultery, fornication, lying, deception, etc.

And this is that relationship in marriage that is founded upon sin and it won’t last, except death due it apart.

The flesh understands intimacy, close friendship, or romance is carnal, lustful, and sensual, which involves the gratification of the senses and physical pleasures.

The gifts of the Spirit and the spiritual Church must operate in a pure spirit with no hidden, premeditated motives or agendas. And God knows the heart so you’ll never be all that He has called you to be except you do it all His Way.

 

Intimacy

To be intimate is to be in close connection through the innermost part of your being, which is soul and spirit, not through the penis and vagina.

To be intimate is in the innermost; indwelling.

Intimate proceeds from within. It is an inward relation.

Intimacy is what the Holy Spirit does when He consummate His Spirit in your spirit. This begins an intimate relationship – a vow has been made – a consummation of marriage has taken place in the Spirit and the romance begins.

The depth of your indwelling of the Holy Spirit determines your level of intimacy with the Spirit of God.

The depth of His indwelling comes to love you intimately, that is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Indwell means to inhabit; to abide in, within.

The depth of your submission will determine your indwelling.

Indwelling of the Holy Spirit is the way the Holy Spirit takes His possession. He must possess you to live in you as His Temple. His consummation of your spirit claims your spirit as being His.

Your submission determines the depths of your indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This is to say whether He is guiding and leading you in all your being, not just your part of surrender.

The depths of your indwelling will determine your ability, the power to do. In other words, the depths of levels of your love will determine the force of the power and authority that is demonstrated and portrayed in you.

Your ability to submit, to obey, to humble yourself, to stand to let the Lord fight, to surrender all to Him is all demonstrated in the depths of your indwelling.

So the Holy Spirit must “indwell in depth” in your spirit to control your soul and spirit from within.

It is safe to say that the deeper He abides in you the closer you are to Him.

It is also safe to say that the gifts of the Holy Spirit and you being a gift only can operate and function from the level of intimacy penetrated in your spirit.

 

This concludes our teachings on Spiritual gifts and what really works spiritual gifts?

Accepting the cost of your charge

Apostle Tracey Robinson, All Rights Reserved
Accepting The Cost Of Your Charge

There is a lot going on in the earth so much to the point that it seems like mankind has taken control globally, as well as locally, as we are being shaken by the results of his ungodly decisions.

But the Word of God says that there is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12. In other words, man’s ways without God are wicked, evil, deceptive, and is designed to draw you into the allurements of its sin.

Although we live in this world around and near the shadows of the manifestations of the choices of ungodly men, we are still taken care of and provided for by our Father which is in Heaven.

That is if we obey the Words of God! For the Word of God has told us and is telling us to “be in this world, but not of the world”.

The Word of God goes on to tell us and be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good, acceptable, and the perfect Will of God. Romans 12:2

And while all this is going on around us in the shadows we are as Disciples of Christ Jesus to continue to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service. Romans 12:1.

Now, this is acceptable to God you and me as an offering, whereas nothing else is.

 

Accepting the COST of your charge

 

Charge is a demand (an amount) as a price from someone for a service rendered or goods supplied.

 

We all say that we have accepted the cost paid by Jesus from the charge of God that was placed upon Him for all mankind. And God called it the “Gift of Salvation” to all mankind.

We all say that we have accepted the cost of what Paul, Peter, John, and all others have paid to manifest the life and life style of a “spiritual being” encased in a human body living in the earth.

Even though we love to tell the stories over and over again about each ones role in fulfilling the plan and purpose of God in earth, but we have no manifestation of what all they did and how it has changed our lives to accept the cost of our charge in the furtherance of Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What is your charge? In other words, what is God’s plan and purpose in you that has been charged to you in earth?

What is its worth to the Kingdom of God and to you?

Is your charge worth the full manifestation of the gift of salvation and its costs applied to your life in earth?

 

            The cost of true salvation has a price! Can you pay it in full as our Lord and Savior did, and all the other patriots? Is your life story being written for the generations to come and even the new earth that has been prepared already by God?

            Or are you still “trying” to make payments, i.e. monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly payments? And at this method of payment plan will you ever “fulfill” the charge of God’s plan and purpose in you for Him in earth?

            Will God have to write your account off as bad debt, a write off, or closed account for failure to pay in full?

 

            Religion with its traditions lets you “try” to make claim on the Divine plan of God without the offering of and acceptance of full cost, which is TOTAL SURRENDERED.

            I shared with you all last week as we ministered; your struggle is in the transformation process. It is not racism and never has been, nor any other matter. But it’s in your transformation!

  • When you hear the Word of God, the Word reacts with a response to cleanse.
  • When you desire to obey the Word of God and do good the Word of God reacts and responds by bearing witness to and with the transformation of you becoming a new creature.
  • When you rebel against the Word of God that you have heard and accepted, the Word of God reacts and responds with a battle. Whereas you now have the Spirit lusting against the flesh and the flesh lusting against the Spirit, because these two are contrary to each other, so that you cannot do the things that you would do. Galatians 5:17. This is that transforming process! You know God knows how to do it!
  • In all of this cleansing process the new creature in you is counting up and accepting the cost of this charge to give up and become the new creature of God’s plan and purpose.
  • What is your price? What is my price? Can you pay it? Are you willing to accept the charge and pay the cost?
  • Here is your cost to be Christ’s example:

St Luke 14:26-33

26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him.

People will mock you and laugh at you and call you crazy when you accept the cost of God’s charge for your life.

30 Saying, this man began to build, and was not able to finish.

            But ignorance don’t allow them to know that you are walking out your completed work in Christ Jesus because you’ve accepted the full cost of your charge.

31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

            The so-called peaceful protestors protesting for justice as they declared or there will be no peace is like going to war, to battle without counting up the cost.

            And not realizing that the legacy of peace is only given by Christ Jesus. St John 14:27 declares it, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

 

In accepting the cost of your charge you must leave ALL the old things of your life behind in order to take on the new things of life in Christ Jesus.

  • Discipleship is a charge that comes with a cost. It says pick up your cross, come, and follow me.
  • Membership has no charge or cost.
  • Membership keeps the Will of your comments, suggestions, and opinions on board while the flesh reasons with its lustful desires.
  • Membership does not understand the spiritual need of the spirit man in you.
  • Discipleship is God’s claim.
  • Discipleship accepts the cost of your charge in your salvation.
  • Discipleship understands that division, a separation is necessary to fulfill the cost of God’s plan in you.
  • Discipleship breeds cross bearers, followers and learners of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Discipleship only knows Christ Jesus as its example.

 

Accepting the cost of your charge comes with conditions for perfection that is spiritual maturity.

Our spiritual maturity example is when Jesus told the rich young ruler in St Matthew 19:21, “if thou will be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasures in heaven and come and follow me”.

Following the Gospel of Jesus Christ carries a cost!

 

St Matthew 19:28-29 is your reward for becoming a true follower (believer) of Christ Jesus.

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

 

  • You are now one that has become regenerated (to be reformed or reborn spiritually); reborn in Christ; born again of the water and of the Spirit; renewed Soul and Spirit.
  • You are now exalted in Christ by Christ with His Glory resting upon you in the earth realm first to be a witness, a Son of God, a true disciple that have gained through loss to show the manifestations of the Word of God and its examples through you.
  • Accepting the cost of your charge guarantees you everlasting life as your inheritance.
  • Yes there will be many, many challenges, stumbling blocks, hindrances, deceptions, deceit, from your own Will’s choices and the choice of people; but God’s Word is sure when we fully accept the full cost of our charge in His plan in earth.
  • We must be able to manifest what Jesus, Paul, Peter, John, etc. wrote about as well as experienced in their lives to manifest the Gospel of Jesus Christ in them while in the earth.
  • Likewise we must also do the exact same. Their examples must become our manifestations.

 

 

Amen
