MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT By Pastor Sam Salau
One of the major ministry of the Holy Spirit onto us as the children of God is to be comforted as Jesus said ” I will not leave you without a comforter”. We receive comfort form the Holy Spirit by revelations, special encounters and utterances that edify our souls, all these are gotten through the Gift of Holy Spirit upon man. As important and desirable the Gifts of the Spirit are, it is disheartening that some groups are not just only ignorant of them, they also raise arguments against spiritual gifts. Some of them are of the opinion that the gifts of the Spirit are not for all children of God but for some certain set of people in the church or ministry. Another groups of people held the belief that the fruits of the spirit are the same with the gift of the spirit and thereby oppose the operation of the gift of the spirit. In other way, it was taught by some people that anyone who have the gift of the spirit is then an authority in the kingdom and should therefore be reverend above other people. These and many other misconceptions are treated in this series with relevant bible verses. You will be blessed listening to this teaching.
