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
