Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

{are not manifestations of holy spirit.}

This essay concerns the Gifts given by the Holy Spirit to the Body Of Christ. What are the Gifts? The first place people may remember about the gifts of the Holy Spirit is located in 1 Cor. 12.
It has been widely taught the 9 manifestations listed in this chapter are gifts from the
Holy Spirit which in short is incorrect to say the least. The (gift) IS the Holy Spirit “ Christ In You” – the New Birth or what is referred to as the (Mystery). 1 Cor. 12 are manifestations of the new birth not the (gift) and every believer has access to them according to their own believing. The “gifts”in KJV is in italics. What does that mean? “The italicized words in the King James Bible are words that were added by the translators to help the reader.” In simple terms THEY DO NOT BELONG THERE as there are no corresponding Greek words in the original writings in italics . If you disagree then your wasting your time reading the rest of this essay so try and stay humble.
This subject in 1 Cor.. Ch. 12 needs to be explored further before an essay on that chapter in the bible. The focus here is on explaining what the (GIFTS) are. It is plain simple and wont take long.
Ephesians Ch 4:11
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;.
These are the (gifts) of the Holy Spirit.

Why?
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:. 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may
grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body
fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
1Cor. Ch. 12:5 “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

Now 1Cor. Ch. 12:5 are not Gifts but manifestations of the liberty in the holy spirit in us of which there are 9 as there are 9 corresponding fruits of the holy spirit.

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

This can include watchmen, singers, researchers, astronomers etc. within the context of the 9 manifestations. It is a diverse Body of Christ. It is clear what The Lord Jesus gave to the body of Christ and why.
There are only 5 gift ministries for the body of Christ and ” Watchmen” is not on that list. Say what you will of a calling or mission from the Lord. A watchmen is not a gift ministry. It is a job! Therefore it is not a ministry of Jesus Christ and the true God but is in context a manifestation of the holy spirit.
To call out the so-called Watchman as propagating a lie.. Its a false ministry. . I believe these
men may be sincere and born-again-only God knows their hearts. Because they use a verse in Jeremiah to justify their ministry and calling built upon a foundation of sand and NOT rooted in the word of God and grounded in love. It also is completely taken out of context a false
understanding of Math. Ch. 13 (1599
Geneva Bible)
