Stories of Healing

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“I’ve spent the last nine broadcasts expounding upon the nine gifts of the Spirit and I hope you’ve learned something about these gifts in our short time together. I thought it would be a good idea now to share some of my personal experiences down the years, whilst operating in ‘the gifts of healing’ particularly, because testimonies are so powerful. What I’m about to share with you are actual accounts of times when the Lord has moved in my life and I never take these testimonies for granted. I will also say up front, that I never intended to be utilized by any spiritual ‘gift’; I simply went about my business in faith and took advantage of the opportunities presented to me. I must point out firstly, that all fivefold ministers are granted to the Body of Christ to equip the saints, and it’s the saints (not the ministerial offices), who are God’s primary choice for moving according to His will, because we saints greatly outnumber these ministerial offices.” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of Interpretation of Tongues

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This will be our final teaching on the gifts of the Holy Spirit and our broadcast will discuss ‘the gift of the interpretation of tongues.’ This will complete our study of the three ‘utterance gifts,’ better known as the ‘inspirational gifts,’ i.e. the three gifts that ‘say’ something, namely the ‘gift of prophecy’, ‘Divers tongues’ and the ‘interpretation of tongues.’ As I said previously, there’s been a lot of misunderstanding concerning the nine spiritual gifts down the years and hopefully in my previous broadcasts, I’ve brought some clarity to the operation of these spiritual gifts. The ‘interpretation of tongues’ can be defined as ‘the supernatural showing forth by the Holy Spirit, the meaning of an utterance in other tongues.’ It’s important to realize that it’s not a ‘translation’ of tongues, but an ‘interpretation’ and there’s a difference.” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Diverse Tongues

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This gift is probably the most misunderstood of all nine spiritual gifts. Some people think, ‘tongues are of the devil’ or have passed away from this dispensation. This is a lie and concocted by religious people, rooted in ignorance. Did you notice in 1 Corinthians 12:10, of the King James Version of the bible, the word “divers” was italicized? That means it wasn’t in the original Greek language but was added by the translators at the time. Actually, in its pure literal translation, it should read, “to another, kinds of tongues.” In another scripture the Apostle Paul states,28 And God hath set some in the church, first qapostles, secondarily qprophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues” (1 Cor 12:28). So clearly, Paul mentions ‘diversities of tongues’ in another scripture, or different kinds of tongues as part of the Holy Spirits manifestation in this dispensation.” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Discerning of Spirits

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The ‘gift of the discerning of spirits’ is one of the three revelation gifts, the others being ‘the word of knowledge’ and ‘the word of wisdom.’ The most important of the revelation gifts is ‘the word of wisdom,’ because it reveals the future plans and purposes of God. Next would be ‘the word of knowledge,’ because it reveals the present or past will of God and finally, the ‘gift of the discerning of spirits,’ which is our focus in this broadcast. Now, let’s be clear from the outset, nowhere in the bible does it mention a ‘gift of discernment.’ Discernment by definition is, ‘the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend that which is obscure.’ This may be a skill that you’ve acquired in life, but it’s certainly not the biblical gift of ‘the discerning of spirits.’ You might even be good at discerning or predicting the behavior of your friends, family or colleagues, based on the diligent observations you’ve made about them but this is not the ‘gift of the discerning of spirits.'” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of Prophecy

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now ‘the gift of prophecy’ is the first of the three ‘utterance gifts’ as I’ve discussed previously, with the others being ‘divers tongues’ and ‘interpretation.’ Of the three utterance gifts, prophecy is the best gift and I will prove it with scripture. Paul said, “I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues” (1 Cor 14:5). The Apostle reveals that to speak with tongues and interpret; is equivalent to prophecy and without interpretation in a public setting; tongues can cause confusion to the people present. Therefore, prophecy is really the most important of the three ‘gifts of inspiration’ or ‘utterance’ because it does not require another gift to complete it. Therefore by definition, prophecy is, ‘supernatural utterance in a known tongue.’ In contrast, ‘Divers tongues’ is a ‘supernatural utterance in an unknown tongue’ and ‘interpretation of tongues,’ ‘is a supernatural showing forth of that which has been said in an unknown tongue.'” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Working of Miracles

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Spiritual gifts work through our lives as God wills them, however we must make ourselves available and have the courage to be utilized by the Lord, in order for them to operate scripturally. Also, if we’re ignorant of spiritual gifts then we’ll have no knowledge of their working, and inevitably their manifestation will become greatly restricted in our lives. Remember what the Apostle Paul said, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant” 1 Cor 12:1. We should not be ignorant of these wonderful gifts, or their administration, that’s why I’ve provided you Biblical examples of their specific operation in these broadcasts and examples in my own life, of where the Lord has used me in their operation. In another instance Paul said 1 Cor 12:31, “But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way,” and again in 1 Cor 14:1, “Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts.” We are supposed to desire the spiritual gifts. Covet is a strong word and this is the only place in the Bible where we’re told to ‘covet’ anything.” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of Healing

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Did you notice the scripture says ‘gifts’ of healing, plural, instead of ‘gift’ as the other spiritual gifts are categorized? It’s written this way because there are various classes of sickness or disease and consequently, there are various classes of healing to counter these various categories of sickness. Let’s start out by saying; the ‘gifts of healing’ have nothing to do with medical science or human learning. Think about it, Luke who wrote the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts was a medical doctor and went with the Apostle Paul on several of his missionary journeys. Luke was even with Paul when he was shipwrecked and they were on the island of Melita together, in the Mediterranean. However, nothing is said about Luke ministering to the people on the island with his medical knowledge. But the father in law of the chief man of the island was sick and Paul laid hands on him and he was healed supernaturally!” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of Faith

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“As mentioned in my introductory broadcast of the spiritual gifts, ‘the gift of faith,’ is the first of the three power gifts. Let’s be very clear from the outset that faith could be described as the ‘currency of God’s Kingdom.’ Firstly, there’s ‘saving faith’ granted to each man to enter the kingdom of God as outlined in Rom 12:3. We also know that faith can increase in one’s life by hearing the word of God over and over which Romans 10:17 makes very clear. Jude 20 also demonstrates that faith can be built upon by ‘praying in the Holy Ghost,’ but none of these attributes of faith can be included within the jurisdiction of ‘the gift of faith.’ ‘The gift of faith’ is unique because it’s given supernaturally for a period of time, in contrast to ‘general’ or ‘saving faith’ mentioned in the Book of Romans. It’s a gift given to the believer in order that he or she might receive miracles in their life. ” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Word of Knowledge

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we will focus upon ‘the gift of the word of knowledge.’ Now there’s no mention of ‘the gift of knowledge’ in the Bible specifically, as some surmise. Like I said before, God can empower you with wisdom or knowledge as outlined in Daniel 1:17, where Daniel and his three friends were bestowed with ‘knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom.’ But today I’m talking about ‘the gift of the word of knowledge,’ as outlined in first Corinthians chapter twelve. Remember, ‘the word of knowledge’ falls under the umbrella of the ‘revelation gifts.’ The three revelation gifts are ‘the word of wisdom’, the ‘word of knowledge’ and ‘the discerning of spirits’ because when these gifts are in operation, they ‘reveal’ something to us. The gift of ‘the word of knowledge’ by definition is, ‘supernatural revelation by the Holy Ghost of certain facts in the mind of God, concerning the past or present, but not the future.'” – Pastor Carl

The Gift of the Word of Wisdom

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Every gift works according to the Holy Spirit, not our spirit. We’re not working or manipulating the spiritual gifts, but we allow the Holy Spirit to manifest them through us by making ourselves available and receptive to His unction. However, if people have wrongly judged these gifts, as no longer in operation today or are in complete ignorance of them, they’ll not work through them. God works through willing vessels. We have to be careful because sometimes we may want to operate in a certain gift but the Holy Spirit does not want us to, therefore, we must always yield to His desires. In other words to one person, ‘the word of wisdom’ may be given and to another person ‘the word of knowledge’, and to another person ‘the gift of faith’ and so on, but we don’t personally choose which gifts are going to manifest. The Holy Spirit divides these gifts between us as He wills, not as we will it. In fact there are some gifts people may operate in often and there are some gifts a person may never operate in, during their lifetime.” – Pastor Carl
