Three Gifts

For those of you who feel called to deliverance ministry, you may want to pray for these three gifts (if you do not already have them)…

THE GIFT OF DISCERNING OF SPIRITS – The active use of this gift is of great importance in the work of releasing people from the powers of darkness. It is the ability to identify spirits and the ability to tell what their activity is. DISCERNMENT IS NOT SUSPICION! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that “so and so discerned something about someone” knowing full well that “so and so” was not moving in a holy gift but rather was being moved by an unholy self-righteous religious spirit.

THE GIFT OF WORKING MIRACLES – A miracle is something that cannot be explained by natural laws. It is ABOVE AND BEYOND the natural order of things, and those who rightly move in this gift ALWAYS give all glory to God. Casting out demons is a miracle. So is healing the sick, raising the dead, commanding the wind and the waves (and having them respond), etc. This gift is about life without limits, beloved, and is closely tied with the next gift…

THE GIFT OF FAITH – This is what triggers all other gifts. The GIFT of faith is different from saving faith or faith which is a fruit of the Spirit. This gift is what gives power for action and motivation for great things. This kind of faith embraces all areas of spiritual activity and is what launches one into the realm where nothing is impossible. Sects of Christianity have brought in much confusion about this gift by teaching people that if they just have enough faith they can speak things and they will come to pass. This is quite short of the truth, in that THIS GIFT ONLY OPERATES AS WE ARE ANOINTED BY GOD TO OPERATE IN IT. In other words, this gift is in operation in people who are MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT in what they say and what they do (not self, or another spirit).

I may share more on this later…
