Gifts Of the Holy Spirit
Is it any wonder we have the gifts of prophesy and Of Knowledge ?
that are available to those whom the Spirit chooses
11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he
distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
1 Corinthians 12:11
1 Corinthians 13
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
The Holy Spirit administrates, He is the "Kingdom Administrator"
If we have the Spirit of God in us and the Spirit of God is in the future now then why can not the
Spirit of God show us things in the Future ?
If we have the Spirit of God in us then indeed He is also in the past...then why can He not speak
through us about the past in words of knowledge ?
People say " the gifts are not for today ?
Well in saying that you are denying that God is who He is, Past, present and future, OUTSIDE
of time and yet He steps into time and in His own way and Time
If you deny that God can be indeed in us then we cannot in fact be "Christians"
"Christ Ins "
To say the Kingdom of God is yet to come and has not yet come is to say
"We will be "Christians" in the future but God has not yet come to dwell in us
If we say "God is in us" then the Kingdom and Kingship of God is in us
Lord God in Jesus name cover this with your protection in Jesus name amen
ok , Im taking the direction from the book of Job
And we know in the book of Job that satan came before the Lord God (the One God)
And asked for permission to attack Job ...why ? because he was a righteous person !
That is : he was right with God.. read Job 2:1
So consider this
Satan is not omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, so he can only be in one place at a time
In this we have the other angelic dark forces that rule over cities and towns and over the tempting
of souls in their luring of dark places of enticement
So satan as we know gets permission to attack Job and God takes away His protection
but not His covering
Now think about that ?
With all the millions of Christians in the world satan can only attack on at a time ?
How limited ? we can see quite clearly that satan has a lot of power , we can see this by "what
he did in the book of job" but that power is limited to that which God allows
Now with that thought we go to Peter and upon this rock......God builds the Church
So we see that Peter the apostle was sifted !
Remember we said that satn can only attack one at a time ? as he has to go to God for permission ?
Ok look at
Do you know what that scripture means ? (it came as a revelation to me yesterday)
The word "you", is plural:It means all the apostles but not just that it signifies the Church !
this is the "accuser of the brethren"
satan was asking for permission here (although we do see it written in scripture) to sift
peter but more so the "Church"
This time not a singular person but a group and not just a group but through all generations
think about that ......
Why would satan want to attack Christians ?
And what has this to do with spiritual gifts ?
Now sifting in the bible is a sifting of wheat from the chaff, that is the ones of the Kingdom
from the ones of the evil one and also a sifting of the righteous wherein those likened to peter
(and from that root) are sifted or can be sifted in such a way that the wheat begins to look
like chaff and in this the enemy can show someone to "not be so righteous" ...
does that make sense ? and that is why we live by grace
Now go to another scripture eg: spiritual Israel, referring to
Another sifting in which the "spiritual Israel" is sifted in a way to show that which remains
eg: "Once a fruit is bruised it gives off an aroma"
