The Gifts of the Spirit - Part 2 - Pastor Fred Price Jr - Audio Download
Before the fall of man, God communed with His children. When sin entered the world, there was a divide created between God and man, thus ceasing Our Heavenly Father's involvement in the earth realm. Then Jesus came to wash away sin, followed by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was sent to serve as our helper and He can operate through us if we are willing.
Although the Godhead—God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one—they all have distinct responsibilities and gifts that are manifested in the church. The Holy Spirit has 9 gifts that are broken down into three categories: 1.) Revelation Gifts, 2.) Power Gifts and 3.) Vocal Gifts.
God does not want us to be ignorant of the Gifts of the Spirit, according to 1 Corinthians 12:1. "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant." He wants us to desire, be zealous for and to pursue the gifts of the Spirit, according to 1 Corinthians14:1. "Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy." But it is as the Spirit wills. When the Holy Spirit is in operation, supernatural things happen. The gifts are accurate, immediate and very precise. The Church needs to be equipped with this information so we can identify accuracy or error in people who profess to be used by the Spirit of God in any given gift.
