Ministry Gifts of the Church – The 12 Apostles

Posted by on May 8, 2012 in Gifts of the Spirit

There were 12 original Apostles that Jesus commissioned to establish the Church and spread the gospel.

General References of the 12 Apostles.

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. (Act 4:33-37 KJV)

Healing is a miracle that is seen in both the Old and the New Testaments. Healing is a restoration. God can heal any sicknesses or disease. Jesus healed many people that came to Him and we see the Apostles continuing with this Spiritual Gift. Healing is for us today.

God promised healing.

Exodus 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Speaking in Tongues

Posted by on Dec 12, 2009 in Gifts of the Spirit, Salvation

God chose tongues as the initial evidence of receiving the Holy Ghost. Speaking in tongues is God speaking through believers in a language we have not learned. The languages are real. As seen in the second chapter of Acts, sometimes people that hear others speaking in tongues will recognize the languages that are being spoken.

The idea of speaking in tongues was not a new concept to those in the upper room awaiting the gift that Jesus told them to wait for. They had read the Old Testament Prophets that had prophesied about God using tongues in the new covenant. Isaiah prophesied that God’s people would speak with tongues.

Gifts of the Spirit

Posted by on Nov 13, 2009 in Gifts of the Spirit

Gifts of the Spirit are gifts that God gives to members of the body of Christ for edification of the Church.

1 Corinthians 12:7-12  7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.  8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;  9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;  10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:  11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.  12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

The Gifts of the Spirit are miraculous and fall within one of three categories: gifts of revelation, gifts of power, and gifts of utterance (Bernard, p. 86).
