Some say spiritual gifts have ceased...I say no.

1 Corint Chapter 12 verse 8

Here are two examples of the spiritual gift "Word of knowledge":

you both are perfectly right: how can a spiritual gift cease to exist?

i do not, however, expect you to understand this: it can turn into deadly poison, too.

and i use all my "gifts" on hoping that you do not rejoice in such iniquities!

Exclamation Truth Is Power...

The revelation of truth, which is spiritual knowing, produces power that reveals God by the Holy Spirit. To know God in truth is to know His power, making you ready to work His works.

John 8:31-37 states: Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, "You are truly My disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
"But we are descendants of Abraham," they said. "We have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean, "You will be set free'?"
Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. Yes, I realize that you are descendants of Abraham. And yet some of you are trying to kill me because there's no room in your hearts for My message..."

I love you,
Verna.

It is funny how this subject has been brought up in my circle of believers this past Sunday. The question was about the gift of prophecy and gift of word of knowledge... what is the difference? Can anyone tell me the difference between the two?

prophecy concerns a future event - (ie Jesus' prophecy of matthew 24 - some believe fulfilled in 70ad, some waiting to see fulfilled)

a word of knowledge is about a past or existing condition (ie john 4 - Jesus "knew" the woman at the well by the Spirit, not by mortal knowledge of her life).

the "word of knowledge" is not for a select few, but for "whosoever will". the Spirit is always speaking. we are not always listening. even when we are listening, we often do not believe we are able to hear his Voice and therefore, do not recognize it when it comes. be still and know that I AM God. God is not in the earthquake, wind or fire, but in the still small Voice. God is no respecter of persons. even as he spoke to moses, isaiah, Jesus the Christ, he speaks to all of his children. only believe. receive.

I agree, Spiritual gifts have not ceased ... I as well have had many experiences of healing and prophecy.
