The Manifestation Gifts - Gift of Prophecy

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 - But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

The nine manifestation gifts of the Spirit are listed as follows:

1. Tongues

2. Interpretation of Tongues

3. Gift of Prophecy

4. Word of Knowledge

5. Word of Wisdom

6. Discerning of Spirits

7. Faith

8. Healings

Spiritual gifts are manifestations of the Holy Spirit. These gifts belong to the church and are supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit and are manifest through Spirit-filled believers.

These manifestations are visible expressions of the Holy Spirit and reveal His character and His will.

The Word of God teaches us that we do not possess any of these nine gifts, but they manifest on any individual that the Spirit may choose for a particular time or purpose according to the will of the Spirit.

They are therefore temporary gifts and no-one can claim a permanent possession or operation of the gift.

When a believer exercises the gift, the Holy Spirit exhibits His power through that particular person and the Holy Spirit will reveal Himself in a special way.

These gifts therefore operate by faith and are given by grace and are given for the benefit of others. They are not intended for any self-glorification, but are for the benefit of others.

The purpose of the gifts is to build up the church. The Spirit manifests Himself through these gifts to edify the church and demonstrate the reality of God to unbelievers.

The gifts and the ministries of the gifts of the Holy Spirit have the purpose to build the church in unity and love for Christ.

* Edification - to build up

* Exhortation - to stir up

* Comfort - to cheer up

* Direction - to bring direction to the body of Christ

These are the means by which the Holy Spirit works publicly in gatherings of Gods people. These nine gifts are real, effectual and powerful in edifying, or building up the local church made up of believers in Christ Jesus. They aid in carrying God’s work forward in the world. They are operated through the members of the body and not just the leaders in the five-fold ministry. They are for each church and each member of the church. The Holy Spirit distributes the nine gifts across the whole body as He wills and the gift at the time of need is imparted for ministry purposes.
