Charisma III

Acts 4:30-31 “Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.

The second grouping of the Sign Gifts is the Power Gifts. The power gifts are gifts that do. The first is the Gift of Faith, the second is Gifts of Healing, and the third is Working of Miracles. A lot of these gifts work together and they kind of intersect but are different. Read the rest of this entry

Charisma II

Mark 16:17These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.”

The first grouping of the Sign Gifts is the Revelational Gifts, and these are the Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge, and the Discerning of Spirits. Discernment of Spirits is telling between the Spirit of God and foul spirits. Read the rest of this entry

Charisma I

Eph.4:11-12 “Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.”

God shows us clearly in His Word that the job of the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers is to equip the body for the work of the ministry. Who is supposed to do the work of the ministry? The body. You are part of the action. The work of the ministry is not meant for some superstar pastors or ministers alone. Read the rest of this entry

Q & A II

Philip.2:13 (KJV) “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”

We are going to kick off today’s devotional with our final answer from yesterday because it is a struggle a lot of us have as we walk with God. And that is, how come this same Read the rest of this entry

Through Gifts

1 Cor.12:4-6 “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.  There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord.  God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.”

Today we will pick up from our final thought from yesterday’s devotional. Which is, the miraculous operates through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit can be categorised into three; Read the rest of this entry

The Jonathan Way

1 Sam.14:6 “Let’s go across to the outpost of those pagans,” Jonathan said to his armour bearer. “Perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether he has many warriors or only a few!”

We are truly grateful to God for all that He is doing in us and with us. Just remain plugged into God and your fruit will be undeniable, in Jesus Name. Over the next few days, we will be studying the Bible character called Read the rest of this entry

The Gifts

Eph.4:11 “Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.” (emphasis added)

We explained yesterday that there are two levels of gifts, individual gifts enumerated in 1 Cor. 12, and gifts to the body. However, to operate as an apostle, prophet… Read the rest of this entry

The Gift

Luke 2:10 “but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!”

Jesus is saying to us this morning, if you want to give Me a gift, find someone that cannot pay you back and give the person a gift. Visit the hospitals and go to the prisons, let that be your birthday gift to Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

The Response

Prov.8:19 “My gifts are better than gold, even the purest gold, my wages better than sterling silver!”

You really cannot be appreciative of any gift until you unwrap it. You cannot really say, thank you, until you see the content of the gift. Josh came back home early from work to surprise his wife on her birthday. Read the rest of this entry

Look Inside

Matt.2:10 “When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! 11 They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh” [with emphasis].

These men were rather wealthy and well advanced in age but as soon as they saw Jesus, they bowed and worshipped Him. The question to you as we celebrate Christmas is, what is keeping you from bowing to Jesus? Read the rest of this entry
