Topic: THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT ARE FOR EVERY BELIEVER
God wants every man, every woman, and every child to be filled with the Holy Spirit and move on in the gifts, power, and
energy of the Holy Spirit!
Consider the following three passages of Scripture from
the Amplified Bible:
The spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit are “the special endowments of supernatural energy” (1 Corinthians 12:1).
“Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments (gifts, extraordinary powers distinguishing certain
Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit) and they vary, but the [Holy] Spirit remains the same” (1 Corinthians 12:4).
“But to each one is given the manifestation of the [Holy] Spirit [the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit] for
good and profit” (1 Corinthians 12:7).
You see, the spiritual gifts are special endowments of supernatural energy! They are extraordinary powers that
distinguish Christians. Every person receives this manifestation of the Holy Spirit, this spiritual illumination.
As soon as the early church received the baptismof the Holy Spirit, immediately the supernatural began to radiate and
emanate fromtheir lives! They began to do the works that Jesus did as He had promised (John 14:12).
You do not have to be an apostle, pastor, or elder to flow in God’s power. Every believer has this same miraculous power
available to him. The Bible says, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they willspeak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17–18).
Jesus left us a pattern for the church today. As soon as these believers were filled with the Holy Spirit, immediately the
supernatural began to flow.
There are thousands of people who are held in bondage by the enemy’s power because they have been denied the
supernatural power of God. Their hearts cry out for the supernatural. When we deny themthe true power of God, they go to the false supernatural—the occult and witchcraft.
Today there is arising an army of God’s people clothed with God’s power that willshow this generation the true way to
supernatural power. Every child of God should be a channel of the supernatural energy and the divine gifts of the Holy Spirit.
If the spiritual gifts are not operating in your life, you should stir yourself to pray and seek God. The gifts of the Spirit are the weapons of our warfare. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in
God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4). We are endowed with these gifts that we might fight the
good fight of faith and deliver our generation (1 Timothy 6:12).
There is no greater thrill than to see God work through your human flesh! It is the most wonderful experience in the world!
