GOD'S GREAT GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT


THE NINE CHARISMATIC GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT


               The Gifts of the Spirit are the most Powerful Tools that The Trinity of God gives you to use during the Second Stage of Human Life.  With these Gifts you can strengthen your Whole Armor of God, which forms a Super-Spiritual Spherical Light Barrier or Shield around your physical body.  It can protect you against all the wiles of the evil ones who would want to fatally hurt you.  There are two classifications of the Gifts of the Spirit: the Nine Charismatic Gifts and the Seven Traditional Gifts. 
           In 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 NKJV, the Nine Charismatic Gifts of the Spirit are a Unity in Diversity and it says, “7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given (1) the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another (2) the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another (3) faith by the same Spirit, to another (4) gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another (5) the working of miracles, to another (6) prophecy, to another (7) discerning of spirits, to another (8) different kinds of tongues, to another (9) the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually.” 
          

SEVEN TRADITIONAL GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

AND

CAPITAL VIRTUES
 

            There is also the Seven Traditional Gifts of the Spirit which correspond to the Six out of Seven Capital Virtues (Virtue of Temperance does not have a corresponding match) and are as follows:
 
1.    Wisdom (Corresponds to Virtue of Charity or Love) - With the Gift of Wisdom, The Trinity of God is at work in your life and in the world.  For a wise person, life takes on deeper meaning, while being able to see the whole loving image of God.  You begin to see God in everyone and everything as God’s Love spreads everywhere.
2.    Understanding (Corresponds to Virtue of Faith) - With the Gift of Understanding, you comprehend how to live as a follower of Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ).  You see clearly and are not confused by cultural conflicts about the right way you should live.  The Gift of Understanding perfects a person's ability to perceive the Truth as Faith is strengthened.  It is the Gift whereby self-evident principles are absolutely known.
3.      Right Judgment or Counsel (Corresponds to Virtue of Prudence) - With the Gift of Right Judgment, you know the difference between right and wrong; and you choose to do what is right by avoiding sin and embracing the values taught by Jesus of Nazareth.  The Gift of Truth that allows you to be Prudent and happily accept Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ) and His Divine Message.
4.      Courage or Fortitude (Corresponds to Virtue of Courage) - With the Gift of Courage, you overcome fear and are willing to take risks to be a follower of Jesus of Nazareth.  Because you have Courage, you are willing to stand up for what is right in the Presence of God, even if it means accepting verbal and physical abuse, rejection, or physical harm leading to death.  The Gift of Courage enables you to have a resolute mind that allows you to do well and endure evil that is especially difficult.
5.     Knowledge (Corresponds to Virtue of Faith) - With the Gift of Knowledge, you understand the meaning of God's Revelation, as expressed through the life and words of Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ).  A person with Knowledge has a growing Faith in God and always is learning more about the Bible and Christ’s Perfect Doctrine.  The Gift of Knowledge is Valuable Information, Faith, Understanding the Truth.
6.    Reverence or Piety (Corresponds to Virtue of Justice) - With the Gift of Reverence or Piety, you have a deep sense of respect for The Trinity of God, and you trust that the True Christian Doctrine are completely Just.  With reverence you recognize the total reliance on God, and you display Humility, Piety, Trust, and Love.  Through this Gift, you reach out through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to gladly worship, praise, and trust The Trinity of God.
7.    Wonder and Awe or Fear of God (Corresponds to Virtue of Hope) - With the Gift of Wonder and Awe, you are aware of the Genuine Glorious Gracious Majesty of The Trinity of God.  With this Gift you discover and know that God is All Perfect which means that God is the following: Perfect Love, Perfect Understanding, Perfect Knowledge, Perfect Wisdom, Perfect Goodness, Perfect Power, and Perfect Presence.  You are afraid of separating yourself from God because God is All-Knowing, All-Present, and All-Powerful.  Knowing that God is Infinite and an Almighty Creator is the beginning of True Loving Wisdom.
        Both the Nine Charismatic and the Seven Traditional Gifts of the Spirit are used by people today as in the distant past.  Also, they have been copied by evil ones to pretend to have Genuine, Gracious Gifts.  This is how false prophets and evil ministers have misled people to think that they are receiving inspiration from the Holy Spirit.  However, someone who can discern spirits will be able to discover evil, imperfect copies of the Gifts of the Spirit.  If you are in doubt about someone’s Gift, ask someone with the Gift of Discernment to find the Truth.
         Even when people are using Genuine Gracious Gifts of the Spirit, these Spiritually Gifted people are sometimes ridiculed and treated in a demeaning manner because other people can’t accept what they don’t want to understand.  Therefore, someone could be laying on hands to attempt to bring about a healing from the Holy Spirit, but are rudely stopped because of ignorance.  If you have a Gift of the Holy Spirit, you shouldn’t be afraid to use It until you are stopped.  Your brief use of a Gift could make a difference in someone’s life, especially if it results in a positive change in the person.  Use every precious moment to help those in need when you see the opportunity. Even if you don’t know the person, he or she is deserving of help as a human being living on earth.  This person is going through the Second Stage of Human Life just like you and will eventually be in Heaven to begin the Everlasting Third Stage of Human Life where you will see this individual at certain moments in your Eternal Life.
