7 Charismatic Gifts

 

Spiritual Gifts are plentiful that God wants to give to all. They are not all the same but are needed in the Church for the good of all so the Gospel is advanced and God is edified which we will see in 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. Or human bodies have many members to help us in relations as each has its place. The Church is the body of Christ and each member needs to benefit each other. We are a unit all working for Good and not evil. Our bodies members do not argue with one another who is the greatest they are all great. Lord help us to treat each one with respect so we are healthy in every area our lives. So it is up to us to make sure we are doing all we can to keep our fifteen senses alive and well. The bodies 5 senses of seeing, hearing, smelling tasting and feeling, the soul’s imagination, conscience, reason memory and affection along with the Spirits Faith, hope, reverence, worship and prayer needs to be seen as the spirit the most important to life followed by the soul and bodies senses. Here we see Paul stressing the important of the Charismatic 7 gifts to keeping us in balance so we are functioning in a way that blesses the body of Christ the Church. We are shown the grace of God and the Gifts of God given to all who believe as instruments of blessing.
Romans 12:4-13 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, The gift of Grace is given to all that believe as special favor; God loves the Church and wants the best for all within it. Everyone has a special ability that God has imparted to us and when we believe and trust the Lord for what He will for us, is going to nor only bless us but others. That is the reason God gives the gifts according to His grace that is not limited by God. That is the reason we need to study the Scripture to know our duty and purpose with in the house of the Lord the Church. Since God gives gifts let’s make sure we use them notice they are all different yet all working for the same cause and reason to see people come to the Lord. The free grace of God are given to man. It is grace that endues with power to do and say what is beneficial to all. Gift of Tongues, Discerning of Spirits now here we are seeing something ordinary. 1 Corinthians 12:4; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 4:10 Here he talks of seven specific gifts for distinct offices. Two general, expressed by prophesying and ministering One from a Church officer deacon or minister and members at large. It is not everyone’s work or its going to be no bodies work. Let’s look close
let us use them: Let us use them is really important to see for it is a command to make sure the Church is letting God have His way in the Church rather than personalities. It is work to get anything done and here the Church is given specific of how to win the lost in greater detail if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; If you’re going to see prophesy it is seen as someone is preaching the word. It is telling what God word says about the future so they are warned about the cost of sins wages. We have to be coached so we are able fulfill our duty as a Church. Minister are doing all they can to let people know we ae living in a world of sin but do not have to give ourselves to sin that is preaching the good news Jesus saves, keeps and satisfies. That is the reason you hear so many different types of minister and the way they preach according to the potential achieved by faith. Everyone has a different IQ or level of ability to learn and when the Holy Spirit is in operation according to one faith we never know what is going to happen to those who are hearing the message. We have to work at preparing the messages in our own hearts before it is accepted by others. That is. the reason our salvation is based off of faith in God we believe and then speak. Remember everyone is given faith the size of a mustard seed and it grows as we study to show ourselves approved work men. We have a proportion according to our dependence upon the Holy Spirit of God. We need to prove all things, holding fast to what is good. Truth does not ever contradict its self. That is the reason preachers that preach doctrine must make sure it is backed up with Scripture. Preacher are giving prophecy of what sin does and exhorts saints to keep themselves pure as they abide in the Vine; Jesus.or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; We all have a story of how the good news as affected us to share with other but ministers use many time there story along with the stories in the Bible to teach truths God relayed to us. he who teaches, in teaching; Teachers teach and if they do not know the truth can lead people astray. We are responsible to God to make sure we are bringing faith, hope to people to be able to worship and reverence the Lord that when they pray prayers are answered.  he who exhorts, in exhortation; To exhort is to make sure people understand who they are and where they are going after death. People need to be encouraged in the Lord so it is not my will, but your will oh Lord. It seems like today with so much evil going on around the world, people need to be exhorted to make sure they do not fall and forget to read and study the scripture, for the internet can rob one of a peace that only comes as we spend time with the Lord. We are all called to God into the world and let them know Jesus has saved you and can save others from the addictions of sin.he who gives, with liberality; When we give let it not be because we have to, but we want to give from the abundance of our resources. We are seeing people blest by the way they give over and above the tithe. The Lord wants us to give 10 percent and He ask will you rob from God? Lord help us to give what we can to the community we live in so people are enriched and do not have to suffer. The Lord said we would have poverty all our lives. Matthew 26:11 For you will have the poor always with you; but me you have not always. That is not a license to not give to those in need. It seems like we are seeing the Church today giving of self and of supplies to help out when disaster strikes. Convoy of Hope Samaritan Purse and Church missionary programs are a blessing to many. The way that your giving to keep our Church doors open is showing the blessing of giving with liberality.   he who leads, with diligence; This is people in responsible position need to be diligent with what they are doing for our Board is the backbone of the Church and that the Lord for our denomination that has men that know how to organize and keep things moving forward in order that more can become involved. We are seeing some very large Churches for the simple reason people and diligent about what they are doing. The technology of the world is being used in the Church to grab people attention to the word of God. The internet has complete changed the spreading of the gospel for anyone that has a voice and broad cast it around the world.  Lord help us to be diligent doing what we do here in Harrah. It takes work and if we are not all working for the Kingdom of God we are not going to have the impact we need in or area of ministry to keep our selves pure and holy.  he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. We are seeing the Church ministering to the older Saints and that is showing mercy that is love in action. People are cared for and that is our employment in the Kingdom of God as servants of the Lord. We are separating or selves from the world deeds by the mercy of God’s grace that is joy unlimited making us cheerful regardless of the circumstance. What does your attitude and behavior look like? Sad, forlorn, depressed or is it with the joy of the Lord a look of pleasure with a smile of approval not a frown of displeasure. So now Paul goes form the minister, teacher exhorter to everyone that proclaims the truth of the world of God.

Annual Conference thoughts from NWMinisters April 23-24 meetings
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 27 April 2018

Ginny and I are so thankful for the opportunity to attend the Northwest Ministers Conference in Vancouver, WA last Mon to Wed where we heard from our District Superintendent Don Ross who we have known since 1982 talk about the State of the Network. We are growing as a network when the Holy Spirit is manifested in the life of the Church. The theme was Power and Purpose for you can have all kinds of power, but what is lacking is purpose many times, they go together. God Spirit has never changed for He created us for goodwill and peace and that is He loves the world He created. Nature does not argue with God but accepts what they are. Trees do not want to be fish, or the sky want to be earth. God created all things good and placed in the garden a tree of knowledge of good and evil that was forbidden to touch and eat. Lord help us to know you made us in Your image and do not want us to be held in hostage by lack of understanding of the power and purpose for being here.  Acts 1:8 New King James Version 
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me[a] in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” This power is given to us to keep going with a full tank of gas as we stay connected to the vine; Jesus who enable us to even live and have our being. Then Acts 2:4 New King James Version 
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.As Christians we are empowered by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of telling the good news Jesus saves, keeps and satisfies every long of our hearts. Are you an example the God power being fulfilled in your life? Jesus is the baptizer in the Holy Spirit John the Baptist Baptized people in water but Jesus Baptizes in the Holy Spirit to enable us to be empowered to do His will. The Lamb of God
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”
 Who is in charge of your life? GO TELL! We need as a Church to be bring hope to our communities to bring order and restoration from evil to good works. We have a mission that needs to be missional and that is get outside the walls of the Church. Let’s not be selfish but understanding, people need fellowship with those doing what is decently and in order to bring joy and peace into the situations we find ourselves in this world of sins shame. God is no longer here but notice what He said in John 16: 7 to 15 
Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.[c]

Roman 6

Romans 6

Here we see Paul going into more detail to show Justification by faith is ongoing as we abide in the vine; Jesus. Our salvation is dependent upon how we accept the knowledge of the truth that gives us sanctification to keep us pure and holy by allowing us to keep on producing the fruits of the Spirit. So it is accepting the blood and water that are streaming as Jesus died on the cross to take the weight of sin upon His self and He was buried in the tomb three day and death could not hold Him and but arose and is seated at the right hand of His Father God to intercede for all that call upon Him for forgiveness. We are in the process of becoming more and more like the Lord as we accept His mercy and Grace. That is the reason the water and Blood are still flowing to keep; us pure and righteousness so we are “

Dead to Sin, Alive to Go.”

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? What are we thinking is sin going to be a part of our lives so we can clout over how bad we are? Our Father God knows how weak we are and wants us to see His way truth and life are still needed to be striven for to be able to stop doing wrong. God is always exhorting us to follow Him so He is able to sanctify us or clean us up with the blood of the Lamb and the water that is always flowing from the Holy Spirit of God.  Sanctification has two blessing in it. 1. Mortification dying to sin and vivification given power then to live in a state of righteousness. It putting off the old nature dying out or ceasing to sin and learning to do Goodwill and peace. 2. Sin is destroyed by the ax of the Holy Spirit. 3. We are sensitive to sin and stop. 4. Sin is no longer in control God’s Holy Spirit Is. 5. We yield to the Spirit of God not unrighteousness.  We resist the desire to see, take and give wrong but always have a conscience to do what is right. Paul says Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? We can have both we are either living a new life or still in our sin. Lord help us to see it is not by power or might but by His holy spirit we are kept saved Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Thank the Lord for the act the Lord gave us to do by being Baptized, for it shows how when we go down in to the water we show the fact we are going down into the very depths of sin and come out total a new redeemed, sanctified person, no long buried in sin dying out to sin, now living for the Lord. 

Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Vivification or living to righteousness is walking in the newness of the Light of the truth. Our hearts are no longer desperately wicked, but our hearts are the issues of life, in the streams of the mercies of the goodness of the Lords. We choose new ways to walk in, reading the Bible so we are guided by a new leader who sticks closer that any brother. We love God and want to please the Lord know for we are alive to sins consequences. So our souls are alive and our affection is bent on obeying the Lord for we are blest and our imagination sees God preforming the impossible. Our memories are full of assurance we are His and He is mine, sol it give me a reason to continue to seek the Lord way, truth and life. 

 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. Thank the Lord He has given us someone to be like and that is Jesus Christ For He was and is spotless and able to help us become like Him, as we confess and more forward not bound by the addiction of lusting for evil but desiring more and more of the glory of the Lord.For he who has died has been freed from sin. Lord help us to die to no longer sinning but living free of sin domain.  Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. We have a new Profession of representing the Lord being His Ambassador making sure of obey His promises.

We are planted in abiding in Christ given the ability to produce His fruit that enables us to continue in His loving arms that are outstretched still to anyone that comes to Him.10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Thank the Lord He knows the reason He came into this world full of sin He had a part in its creation so want to give us the opportunity to become what He created us to be as we choose to live for Him. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. God created us with the ability to see and comprehend what was the consequence of wrong when saw, desired, took and ate of bad we had to hide from the truth of God’s love for us all. Lord help us to accept we can’t do whatever we want thinking it is ok and we will never suffer. Let’s be aware of the consequences of sin for it is death now and forever.

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Sin is missing the mark and it seems like lust is not hitting the mark, for we want what we want with no thought of its consequences. Lord help us to keep our minds stayed on Your love mercy and grace as You came to set us free and empower us to life in victory over sins oppression of addictions.  13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Our five senses of the body, eyes, ears, mouth, nose and feeling in themselves are always seeming wanting to be satisfied so we can’t see the damage done to the body. When we present our spirits to the Lord who created us we know the power of enablement for righteousness and purity as we worship, reverence, have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers. To where our soul’s imagination, memory, conscience, reason is wanting to know Gods affection or love for us, so we can be overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb of God.  14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Sin is not in control for greater is He that is in us then he that is in the world Satan, who has no law just do whatever you want. Grace says no, resist evil and it flees from us. The more you resist the greater the manifestations of the power of God with in us to walk in the graciousness of the Lords loving hands that. are outstretched to us still.

From Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! What is going on needs to be seen for we are living in a world that’s surrounded by sin that wants to control us, addict us force us to be involved with what is going on it is ok that is the way God created us. No, No, God created us for goodwill and peace, Satan is still out to deceive us, telling us to become like God it is ok He created it so be like God. Yes God created all in the garden, but told man do not touch it, our eat of it or you will die.
