I know this will be much disputed,…but here is the truth. Paul said to covet the best gifts. There is no known reason why every true child of God does not have any and all the gifts.
We are told to seek for them, pray for them, desire (covet) them. All of this means to hunger for the gifts and seek for them fervently, in prayer.
These gifts were placed in the true Church for all to be ministered to and taught. if there is a need, there is a gift to meet that need.
All Christians should pray for, and heal, the sick. Jesus said this is to the BELIEVERS. iT IS NOT for just a few ‘select’ folks.
All Christians should study Scripture, learn, and grow up to be teachers. Hebrews shows that there is a time when we all need to become teachers. This is so the next generation will know God’s truth and be saved.
If a person has a problem, any true Christian should be spiritual enough to exercise a gift and meet that need.
Any gift that you have will fully manifest itself in the very use of it. If you speak in tongues, you will know that you speak in tongues. If you interpret tongues, you will know that. If you pray for and heal the sick, you will know that you did this.
If you cast out some devils, you will know this happened. AND, IF… you do not seek to do these things, try growing up some in Christ….ALLL OF YOU.
It is not a special privilege, to privileged people, IT IS A COMMAND FROM OUR GOD. Do these things or seek to become a BELIEVER.
