“NOW THERE ARE (DISTINCTIVE) VARIETIES OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS (SPECIAL ABILITIES OPERATING IN BELIEVERS), BUT THE SAME SPIRIT (WHO GRANTS THEM AND EMPOWERS BELIEVERS). AND THERE ARE (DISTINCTIVE) VARIETIES OF MINISTRIES AND SERVICE, BUT IT IS THE SAME LORD (WHO IS SERVED). AND THERE ARE (DISTINCTIVE) WAYS OF WORKING (TO ACCOMPLISH THINGS), BUT IT IS THE SAME GOD WHO PRODUCES ALL THINGS IN ALL BELIEVERS (INSPIRING, ENERGIZING, AND EMPOWERING THEM).

GIFTS OF HEALING …

THE POWER WHICH AT PARTICULAR TIMES THE APOSTLES RECEIVED FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CURE DISEASES; A POWER WHICH WAS NOT ALWAYS RESIDENT IN THEM; FOR PAUL COULD NOT CURE TIMOTHY, NOR REMOVE HIS OWN THORN IN THE FLESH, BECAUSE IT WAS GIVEN ONLY ON EXTRAORDINARY OCCASIONS, THOUGH PERHAPS MORE GENERALLY THAN MANY OTHERS.” CLARKE

THE DISTINGUISHING OF SPIRITS …

THE ABILITY TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRUE AND FALSE DOCTRINE, AND BETWEEN WHAT IS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHAT IS NOT …

 

TONGUES …
