Greetings friends, new listeners, welcome to the Archie Hardy ministries program. I'm Sharon not thanking you for joining us today because we know Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God today's teaching by my father for the Hardy is exciting and informative. So make sure you get each episode of this outstanding exposition on the gifts of the spirit will all right were going to be pretty warm featuring on the gifts of the spirit. But before we do I want to give him a little better introduction Ricardo set the scene. Figures for Google Bible setting of the gifts that we can better understand first of all we want to find out what happened on the day of Pentecost. What happened on the bigger protocols many people to settle the bigger protocols. The church was founded was born aborted existence. But that's not so. According to the Scriptures. The Scriptures declare that the church was born one God.

When Jesus called his first 12 disciples mortar them gave them power commissioned them to send them out to preach the gospel.

Heal the sick and cast out devils fighter Matthew the 10th chapter the first of the fifth and seventh verse 27 when he had called on to him is what Paul disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out here all modern sicknesses and all manner of diseases. These 12 God sent forth and committed him singing going on under the weight of the Gentiles and any city of the Samaritans enter you not, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The apostles were part of the foundation of the church Ephesians the second chapter 19 through 21st said about therefore you are no law or strangers and foreigners, but follow suit with the saints of the household of God are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone Greek word for church is a clean shot an equation means the called out one when he Jesus called out his 12 we instituted his church. The church was born. The foundation was laid of the 12 apostles and he being the chief cornerstone refinement that in Matthew the 18th chapter, the 15th of the 18 verse that the church was already in existence and mentioned by Jesus during the 18th chapter of Matthew takes about man that was offended by his brother. The Bible said that the was the go to him and him alone would not hearing take two or more or three more they would hear the two or three because everyone had to be established in the mouth of two or three then he said, bring him before the church, and if they did not hear the church than they were there County messy public to Vanessa. He threw the church came into existence when Jesus officially called the first 12 and commissioned them. They were his foundational apostles were all built upon the apostles and the prophets, Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone. Know what did happen on the day of pentacles.

God gather all convert, and 20 of the church of the believers in one place and then Jesus poured out the baptism of the Holy Ghost upon them filling them with the power of God and them for a ministry. This was to fulfill what Joel prophesied in Joel 228 which Peter repeated in acts 217 and 19 the city to become the pastor the last day say of job I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams all my service or my handmaidens will pour out in those days of my Spirit and they shall prophesy. Nonsocial wonders in the heavens above, and signs of your company blood and fire and vapors of smoke door the day of pentacles.

What Jesus did was to win power 120 believers of the church that obeyed him and carried in Jerusalem as he promised and asked the first chapter of the eight verse until they begin to with power from on high. This inaugurated the Holy Ghost dispensation Holy Ghost now the active and direct agent of God in the earth, lift up the Lord Jesus Christ and to bring deliverance and healing and victory the million card just brought into existence the first charismatic gifted community made up of charismatic believers were charismatic just means gifted in the Greek is, is not gifts support for gifts. What he did was he in power is sure and gifted them so that they could fill their mission was to be the witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ under the uppermost part of the arch 18 first acts 157.

Not many days hence pulling the go and wait in the city of Jerusalem that they would be baptized with the Holy Ghost in one at 20 poured out the Holy Ghost baptized him in the Holy Ghost and power gifted them and empower them that they might be witnesses.

He said after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria. The other most parts of the earth. This is the story of acts Jerusalem. Do you Samaria to the uttermost parts of the earth and will you miss 20th-century or continuing carrying the gospel under the uttermost parts of the earth.

Now hundred and 20 received the infilling of the Holy Ghost and were gifted to fulfill this commission wasn't by chance. It was 120 Joyce Hall said it in order for a group of the Jewish people to form their own community and have their own morning counsel, they had to have 120 member. So what God given the fact was set up his first Holy Ghost charismatic community made a charismatic gifted believer every time that God wouldn't spread the gospel through those first hundred and 20 Jerusalem word happen. Samaria, Judea and Samaria.

Every time that God would see. He would pour out the Holy Ghost, and they would become an extension. Another charismatic community. The Bible was not written to Methodist. This room anyone else except gifted Holy Ghost filled Christian, especially when I mean the New Testament, especially Pauline's epistles. All these organizations always denominations came in after the church went through the dark ages and God gradually giving them the truth and bringing them out of the darkness, restoring us back to where the early church started every church was a gifted church full of the charismatic of the gifts every believer was to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and receive a gift to enable them to help them to function in an office because we find out that the Bible said that everyone of God's people have an office have a measurable increase that they were responsible minister to the rest of the body order for the body to increase and be edified and be built. Paul after Cornelius proselyte Gentiles received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. God then called up all that he would take it to the whole Roman Empire. This new gifted community made up of believer.

Paul, the church was known as the body of Christ.

It was the first one to get this revelation that it was the body of Christ made of both Jew and Gentile, making one new man. And upon being placed in the body of Christ God's intention was to baptize everyone of us knew the Holy Ghost and give us gifts so that we could minister function in our office and bring forth a measure of increase. Whatever Samaria preach Christ they got saved right away. The apostles going down laid hands on the receive the Holy Ghost Paul were everywhere. Churches were Holy Ghost gifted churches, Holy Ghost people. We came to Ephesus. He found some brethren, yes, in the course of the 19th chapter of acts did you receive the Holy Ghost. When you believe they said we are not even this much further. Weatherby Holy Ghost Paul said, and under what then were you baptized. If you did you of the Holy Ghost. They said we heard of John's baptism we we had his baptism, we were to believe on him. That was the come baptism with the view of repentance pulse of that's right but he's come now and want to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost: would be baptize afresh in the name of the Lord or by the authority of Jesus and that he laid hands upon them, and they all received the baptism of the Holy Ghost speaking in tongues prophesy because God's intention is for every believer to be baptize in the Holy Ghost and being kept did so that they can administer their office there function the measure of increase also to everyone of us have a gift in first Corinthians 77 he said probably that all men were even assignment myself. But every man has his proper gift of God. Whatever this matter.

Another after that first Peter 410, Peter said, as every minute receive the gift, even so minister the same good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Ephesians the fourth chapter 16 verse pulse every said everyone of us has a measure of increase is a joint in the body of Christ of ministers of the rest of the body, 16% for whom the whole body fitly joined a compacted by that which each joint supply body will not be fitly joining compact without the vision, except that each joint supply according to the effectual working of the measure every part when everyone of us given our place receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and receive our gift and minister in our office and function as he said in Romans 12 chapter 4 verse rest. We have many members in one body and all members have not the same up with what we all have our office are to the Greek word is praxis, which means function. We all have function and when we get our function and bring forth a measurable increase them.

The body makes an increase of itself witness that means God adds new members. He saves him. This built up in low the church is charismatic community where the spirit is binding believers together and building them up through the wide range is manifestation of the grace Karen Smoltz. Each member has a function of the church that contribution necessary for the well-being of the whole church covers matter or gifts or indispensable to the community of believers unity of the church depends on the proper function of the whole range of the fibers covers matter. That's just the Greek word for gifts, the church is a charismatic community in unity, in and through diversity. In other words, we are many. We all have about the same office. We all not have the same function. We all have the same gifts, but we all are one in the body and I have a form in an office in the gift God didn't make it once a clone youngster Fleming. In other words, every Christian isn't exactly alike, clone. We all diverse but where in unity just like there's diverse members of my body but I make a point unified whole and the body of Christ is made up of diverse members diverse offices functions and gifts, but we are all one in Christ. Even the Godhead is were going a little farther, even though there are one Godhead there is diversity but unity in the Godhead. We each are individual. An individual member of individual organ for the body of Christ. We each have an individual function and therefore we have a hopeless minister in our function, not a bunch of clone. That's what the problem was, as we go with Finan Karen that they were all clone.

They all were trying to speak in tongues, because to them comes was the sign of the elite of those that have the superior wisdom called Sophia which will get in will be getting the word of knowledge.

Those that have the superior gnosis, knowledge. They were the perfect ones in the side of their perfection was speaking in tongues and when they all come into the service. That's all they. Everybody spoke in tongues didn't do nothing else. That's why the Holy Ghost to Paul had to regulate the gifts and Karen because they didn't do anything else in the 14th chapter, first Corinthians, he said to them all speak in tongues and that's all you do. Somebody comes and it's not say or not instructed in the ways of the gifts for Germania so your crazy family. CMM heavily if the whole church. All they did was come into the command that everybody knew they were spiritual ones begin to speak in tongues and all we did, four, five, 600,000 people, all we did was speak in tongues for our NARA have any applicable what we might do it once, maybe twice will come out the coursework on puzzle, but after a while I get told that Emily CMM so we all have diverse different offices, positions and functions and gifts. There's no such a thing in God's plan. There is no such a church as not a gifted church. There's no such a thing in God's plan is not a gifted believer. He wants every believer to have a gift and manifest and function the okay we want to go into the actual nine gifts of the spirit. First Corinthians 1220 said now rather I would not have you to be ignorant concerning spirituals you notice if you got a King James version. The word gift is in italics in italics means that it wasn't him. The original translators and because spiritual is an adjective and it must have a noun to modify but I don't like the word gift for the word called spiritual Greek word for pneumatic call and it means of spiritual they added gifts in italics but I rather like the translated rather in a moment's or down now concerning spiritual in a woman's or endowments brethren, I would not have you to be ignorant were going to save the word gift for charisma. Emily CMM so in the first verse he calls these gifts spiritual enablement and spiritual endowments God and dials you in God places his spiritual ability so that you may function in that office. And with that ability to edify the church to build it up to Cecil save and see it increase to be built up. The second word is foundů That just means manifestation and we find that in the seventh verse and he says for the manifestation of this.

Is given to every man to profit with all hear the gift in this chapter.

Enablement is: manifestation Emily CMM, a manifestation not of a gift, but of the Holy Spirit, the manifestation better processes of the spirit, the manifestation of the spirit, not a manifestation of a gift.

It's letting us know that the Holy Spirit is in the services and in operation and moving.

It's his revealing himself in the service by a spiritual endowment that he is endowed somebody with Henry's following so for what you get this very point that we come to the word. The type all three towers charisma and charisma is the word for gift food manifestations in the first Corinthians 12 one through 12. First of all spiritual enablement's endowments. Second of all, they are manifestations of the Holy Spirit in each one of us is given a manifestation you need to pray for that which you manifestation is stored. Let the Lord manifest is manifestation through you. Emily same in his manifest presence. The most important of these words is is charisma, charisma, first of all, comes from the word Congress.

Congress English meeting means grace. Congress grace catalyst.

One of its meetings in the meeting pertaining to the gifts is enabling power and divine ability now what we do is we take KRS and come down to put MAO on it. We do that we get the word what call Liz Mah Stella, Emily, CMM, when we put the MAA on any now the MA in Greek grammar means the result or portions of so careers Congress is enabling power and divine ability.

Charisma means the results of grace manifesting itself in portions of God's enabling power. Once you notice the very important word here portions portions you don't get all of God's enabling power of the mind ability at once and it's not always there all the time you get a portion. Emily hears me. We can see this in the phrase gifts or Congress matter of healing. Remember charismatics as deplorable charisma and will put an excellent they put ETA Emily CMM. They are gifts of healings. No one gets and there's no such a thing is the gift of healing. I say it again no such thing as a gift of healing which means that you have all of the healing power in resident in your life at all times that you can use it anytime you want to hear any disease.

Nobody has. I sure like to have that one, Emily CMM, but what we do is we get portions of God's enabling power that results in the healing. Emily hears me when God wants to move in healing, manifest himself in that way the vessel that he just shows to get portions of his enabling power to heal.

He began to give him a portion for this person. In this particular disease and a portion for this person. In this particular disease.

Emily CMM and when God stops. Given the portion you no longer have the gifts of healing, until God gives you the next portion. Emily CMM I know that God uses many of the gifts of healings. I wish that was the gift of healing, because therefore I have killing power will me all the time. I could use it all the time and I just go around emptying out all the hospitals you know a lot of skeptics say. Well now if you you got the healing power wanted to empty the hospital Emily CMM. But you see it's not the gift of healing that you have the power all time. It's the gifts of healings portions of God's healing ability that he give 20% of the service to you to give certain everybody doesn't get healed because everybody doesn't believe everybody's not blame God Emily CMM and amen. What an insightful and timely teaching by God's servant. Brother Hardy on the gifts of the spirit. Thank God that he has endowed his church, the body of Christ with these nine marvelous manifestations of his Holy Spirit to bring forth the works of healings deliverance and revelation to his people and also as a witness to others that they might believe when his son the Lord Jesus Christ. When the early church in acts went forth, preaching and teaching the gospel not work with them confirming his work through mighty signs and wonders how much more do we today need the gifts of the spirit and this age of counterfeit supernatural manifestations by the kingdom and Prince of darkness. This teaching is vital to our understanding for every believer and answers the question unequivocably and scripturally are the gifts of the spirit for today and you may operate in the gifts how and when you understand the operation. The purpose and the function of the gifts of the word of wisdom the word of knowledge, prophecy, and discerning of spirits and how these gifts often work in tandem with each other as well as the power gifts I faith healings and working of miracles, and finally you will understand the gift of diverse tongues and the gift of interpretation of tongues and what the differences between the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues given to the individual for his own personal edification and the gift of diverse tongues and the gift of interpretation of tongues that operate in the church assembly.
