What Are The Nine Gifts Of The Holy Spirit, And What Do They Do?
The church is one of the most important things to the Lord Jesus the Messiah. He said that the gates of hades (or hell) would not overcome His church. The church of Jesus Christ founding was put in motion with His departure from the Earth after His resurrection. However, the world-changing power was demonstrated by believers in Acts 2 when they were baptized in the Holy Spirit. They all received the gift of tongues as a sign of that Holy Spirit baptism.
The gift of tongues is for all believers. It is a distinct gift that had never been seen on the earth before until the church. In all, there are 9 total gifts of the Spirit. What are they and how do you define them?
1. The Word Of Wisdom- A word given at a certain moment through the Spirit disclosing the mind, purpose, and will of God for a specific situation.
