Welcome to worship and the word with pastor Robert. We are in a series called the God I never knew with pastor Robert has been talking about the most misunderstood person in the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, in today's message Pastor Robert is going to share about the discerning declarative in dynamic gifts of the spirit and how they are available to every press rubber has an incredible insights to share so let's join him now.
Okay so you turn blown out of first grade 12 Bibles was removed Wellborn a series called the God I never knew, the Holy Spirit is Ashley.
Are you enjoying the series I think it's fantastic. We've been answering some questions about the holy and last week was is he Pentecostal and I enjoyed that message sharing it with you this week. I like the title to this we got involved the message is the charismatic. So what I'm trying to do in the series is take away the miscommunication about the Holy Spirit. Another way to save is the Army. A lot of people actually afraid of the Holy Spirit by much. Horrible.
So first Corinthians 12 verse one it says now concerning spiritual gifts).
I do not want you to be ignorant now.
There's a reason I wanted to talk about this verse just for moment a lot of believers are ignorant about the Holy Spirit.
Now he didn't say stupid is doing stupid, it just means that you have mental if you're ignorant about a subject, just have not been taught about that subject. All you been thought misinformation. He says spiritual gifts.
This word spiritual is the Greek word pneumatic coats medicos means empowered by breath or wind. Look at the first part of it pneumatic that you probably sometime heard about a pneumatic drill or something needs its power by air now concerning spiritual gifts, once I know what now concerning gifts that are empowered by the breath of God, and was at one more time because it's got a really She got catch this now concerning gifts that you can only movie and if you allow the Holy Spirit to breathing.
That's what he saying those are spirit with the words now concerning this to give you low again a little Bible lesson here, there, and further in first Corinthians 6 times. The reason there. There is because Paul wrote a letter to the Corinthian church before first Corinthians 1st Corinthians is actually a second letter that he wrote I don't know we don't know what happened. The first letter I personally think that the Lord said to me, that's not get in the Bible about you got to get better if you wanted to get the Bible so he writes a letter and they wrote one back first Corinthians chapter 5. He says in the epistle earlier letter that I wrote you and in chapter 7 it says in the now concerning the letter you wrote me this is all in first grade. Like so many ways has now concerning these answering the question that they had that you don't follow all that I know this in the Bible college class buddies will give you low background. So now concerning spiritual gifts, and I don't want to be ignorant of their own sites. I think the I don't want you to be uneducated about spiritual gifts.
I can't do it all in one message, you need to know that so we have other classes, you need to take classes, you need learning study, but many many people have no clue how many gifts are, how they work and I'll just tell you I put the gifts in the four categories of gifts.
Okay, there are the motivational gifts and those are Romans 12 you cube you have one of those they motivate. There are the manifestation of gifts which will collect data in first Corinthians 12 there the ministry gifts there in first grade and 14th and there are the ministerial gifts in Ephesians 4.
There does not gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The gifts of Jesus. Apostle positive angles that the again. I went on going all that but forgot to talk about the manifestation of gifts of the Holy Spirit. Today, charisma of the Lord. Alright, so first greatest well look at verse seven there were nine manifestation gifts of the Holy Spirit, but the manifestation of the spirit is given to each one. This just a question on accuracy for but it's really important arguing each yes you are so these are for you all dying things are for you is given to each lawn for the prophet of all four to one is given the word of wisdom.
This is one of the gifts through the spirit to another the word of knowledge through the same spirit to another faith by the same spirit to another gifts of healing by the same spirit to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another really important for me to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of times but one and the same spirit works all these things, distributing to each one more time arguing each day to each one individually as he will not let me explain something about this. You don't have one of these gifts don't go around telling people I have a word of knowledge or absorbed was you have any of the Holy Spirit has all of and he distributes to each one for the profitable you can you can minister in the gift of the word of knowledge that you need that the Holy Spirit allows you to do that so any person thought Hurley will say will I have this know you know the Holy Spirit does the as all nine of these and he manifest or manifest means to make known. He makes him them, known through each one. Everyone as he wills for the profitable right so I what I did advise there are nine gifts, many theologians do this, but we divide them into three categories. That works out well for me because a good sermon always has reports so it's on work out great.
I so here's the first category on the first regift the discerning gifts I want to go through three gifts that are what we call the discerning gifts and all go through each of them, but they're just so you know the word of knowledge more than wisdom and discerning of spirits.
These are discerning guests going to give you the word of knowledge. First, here's what a word of knowledge is a word of knowledge is to know something specific without having learned it by natural means to know something specific without having learned by natural means not because I'm going through nine. I I can't do like I would normally do like it's been a class on each of these.
But Jesus mood in these gifts because he moved with the power of the Holy Spirit when he was talking to the woman at the well, he said, go, call your husband. She said I don't have a husband.
They say well you said that right because you had five in the one you're with is not your husband that sort of knowledge that what many people say of what he was Jesus and Jesus is Ehrlich yet though he laid down his divinity and he picked up his humanity. When Jesus was on this earth.
He ministered in the power of the Holy Spirit, he came out of the wilderness and the power of the Spirit when he was baptized.
The Holy Spirit came upon him. He saw Cat Stevens out by the spirit of God, so he moved by the power of the Holy Spirit is the second one.
A word of wisdom.
This is a divine answer or solution for a particular event a divine answer or solution for a particular event in John chapter 9, this man gets healed and they said really know where this guys from and he said well this is a marvelous thing you don't know where you from getting open. My aunt is that since the beginning of time. No one is open the eyes of someone born blind and he says this in this man were not from God. He could do nothing and you know what happened like an answer as a word of wisdom.
I think God gave him a wise answer. You need to go to start on the prayer and let the Holy Spirit speak to you about. Will that be okay because he knows a lot more about your business of human body like so and the here's the third discerning gift that is discerning of spirits discerning of spirits needs to be made aware of the presence of a demonic spirit to be made aware of the presence of a demonic spirit. This happened when there was a girl following Paul around and saying, these men are serviceable outside, but she was a fortuneteller and you say what she same right thing yes but he didn't want to which confirming their ministry, so he knew it was a demon. He can't cast the demon out of her and just like that because he was aware he became work now lie when you look at this for moment disarming spirits that this gift is called discerning of spirits, Alyssa Newman carefully. It is not called discernment. It's called discerning of spirits.
Now listen, there is no GF of discernment in the Bible looking sick or supposed to be discerning. Our sense of strength of a concern good and evil was posted sir. Not saying that's all I did on one like a statement and it's going to get some idea. So just laugh about it with the rest of us. Okay, but most people that I most not all but most that I've met, that say I have the gift of discernment actually have the gift of criticism. I saw some nudges wasn't that faithful Lord I started some fights so I know is that you may be a discerning person may not have the gift of discernment is not a gift.
Discernment the reason I say criticism is because people seem to say will ever get discernment and their actually very critical of very judgment of other people and I think that their opinion is going to bring, and I blame it on validated only will I have this gift from the Bible wanted let you know that gifts not in the Bible. But there is a get the discerning of spirits, and I just discernment. Some you have a critical spirit so this would be all right with you if the Holy Spirit showed you demonic or evil spirit that was coming against your marriage and you prayed against our come against one your children are come against your business content and publishing business by going this number take the second category, the declarative gifts the declarative gifts under here will be prophecy times and interpretation of tongues, and all I get out will go over each one of prophecy, times and interpretation of tongues. Know the words all three use the time to the point right. Personal prophecy is a message of encouragement from God through a person a message of encouragement from God through a person. Now please hear me one who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort. It never says correction the spiritual New Testament gift of prophecy is encouragement.
You will see many many times the work encouragement or encouragement used with this. Here's why say this is because, again, many people cite lab gift processing and they think that they can correct other people and tag us save the lessons Lord will be in the and I want to warn you about, saying, thus says the Lord. When the Lord insight Scripture is prescribed in 1431 notice this for you can all prophesy.
I don't I'm not. I don't have to do this a lot but I just wanted to today.
Could you repeat the word all is this the Bible you can all prophesy you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn your sword learned and that all may begin courage doesn't say corrected. It says that only be encouraged also says only learn prophecies of learning we we learn we learn to hear God's voice, and we learn to speak it in encouraging like and there.
I know that you probably heard some policies that they just want God no, I understand that people are learning heard about a fellow in Alabama and he prophesied what he said. He said thus says the Lord, I know you're scared sometimes I get scared myself what I thought God. God know this is not good grammar.
But God don't get scared okay but he was loading. He's trying to say God saying hey I know how you feel but you don't get scared all right so so when learning saw say more about prophecy. The moment because I want to leap Tom's interpretation of tongues to prophecy. You'll see why in Scripture moment the nexus times times is a message from God in a language unknown to the person through whom the message comes tongues is a message from God. Unknown to the person through the message guns now what I'm going to spend the whole message own tones in two weeks. The next two messages be the last of the series. You don't miss the next two weeks I but I want a stolen thought about this is talking about the manifestation times, not a prayer language so we'll talk about a prayer language. So the next one is interpretation of Don's. This is understanding and expressing the thought or the intent of the message in tongues. Understanding and expressing the thought or the intent of the message given times now I have a Scripture run try to give y'all time to write down the elected official nano simply want to say something.
It's the interpretation of tongues, not the translation it's the interpretation of trancelike you say what's different thoughts. It's a very big difference.
Interpretation is expressing the thought of the intent of what the person just said translation is word for you and doesn't have interpreters they have translators because if somebody says something about a bomb they will know exactly what he said about Obama not what you think. His intent was. But what he is able to actually see him something like not travel overseas on I don't have translators. I have interrupted sporting interpreters. I was in Poland preaching one time that this might be interpreted and show up in this guy said to me, I am. I am learning English. I will interpret for you tonight. Well I did have another choice.
So I was speaking. I'd say appraising separate God say pricing separate and then about every five minutes, he would say wait a minute you know he would be like a summary window.
All the state just a moment and then he would talk like three or four minutes and then the little children go.
What was he actually say feel like I would say you know Jesus is the propitiation for our sins, and he wanted.
I don't know what he just said okay so let me show you Berkshire about prophecy and interpretation comes right first greetings 14 valleys one page overview look at it verse by says I wish you all spoke with time now to start this for moment that's in your Bible you say yes, but Paul wrote that Paul wrote it even offered.
The Holy Spirit offered this book was God breathed, God breathed the phrase I wish all of you spoke in tongues. That's pretty strong. I just like to say no matter what your religious background is Iraq come to grips with that Scripture at some point. I wish all of you now want to show you the rest of because again we have so demeaned this gift of tongues and interpretation what watch this he said I was always focused on, but even more that you prophesy.
For he who prophesies is greater then he who speaks with times that I love you will quote that. But watch the very next word unless unless indeed he interprets that the church may receive edification or sprinkling building up dinner so that's that is the one who prophesies is greater unless it's interpreted in its interpreted the site by the 22nd so you know theology understands first but you do need no grammar so don't tell me the one who prophesies is greater than one. He speaks in tongues, unless it is interpreted and usually say I wish you all.
I wish all spoke with times and I was only prophesied one because it is encouragement. Here's what he say I wish all of you would encourage each other. What is better than you thought your saving you.
I was all myself so interpretation not translation award okay, someone might give a short message in tongues and someone might give along interpretation or the other. There might be a long time shorting her budget and he would use that to try invalidates. I will see it's not true because that was a short message missiles along with no it's not word for word, its interpretation is trying to express the fault or the implant of what was what the person understood by the Holy Spirit, finally getting illustration.
If you ask my son how was your day, James now just change my son how was your day. His interpretation of his day was fine.
That is all you will get if you asked my daughter how was your day just a well woke up about six. I have been of his son's headache. I think it's because there's something in the air, but I'd like pancakes is one really good pancakes. Both the girls slept well course cake got up twice and I got up one time but they are sleeping through the night. Now I would say that work late, was working on the message. Have I told you about the new message that okay you better have some time because her interpretation and development of her day is going be long. My son's interpretation of his day will be short so you can have along interpretation by the way, I said, you know, my sense is fine. Sometimes he doesn't even use words we were at the table and I had all the family over and we're going to talk on an asset I James how was your day. This way, did he want and then I said to hey did you have that meeting your spouse have values that surround us, and how was the meeting and you know not married to the perfect moment his wife Bridget said you sure it's funny okay these are the declarative gifts. Here's the last category, the dynamic gifts the dynamic gifts dynamic comes and this will be faith healings and miracles day dynamic comes from the Greek word for match 1/8 and set other places to but that's one were familiar with. You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. Power is the Greek word goonies we say dune and this is why we would say it would be released is likely amounts and it means power, but it means explosive power. For instance, there's another word we get from this and that is dynamite is what made you shall receive dynamite when the Holy Spirit comes upon power so that when you're witnessing this power just explodes out of 22nd.
So here are these the exteriors of verse one faith. Faith is a supernatural impartation of belief and confidence for specific situation that the unknown, not not not on faith. In general, on, this this manifestation of DF of the Holy Spirit is a supernatural impartation of belief and confidence for specific situation safe.
This white would it be all right with you if you're going through difficult times in the Holy Spirit just gave you faith that you will get through it. C1 trying to guess the Holy Spirit and his gifts are good. Don't be afraid of him and don't be afraid of ending his gifts. Here's the second, under the dynamic gifts gifts of healings, gifts, plural of healings plural. If so, healings are supernatural endowments of divine health, supernatural endowments of divine health I read this summer. The biography of Oral Roberts. I know people have good and bad and I understand that. So just for a moment let's forget whatever you've heard or whatever you feel personally but one of the reasons that he preach. Healing is because he was healed when he was 17 years old.
He had tuberculosis and at that time that they did not know of any person living healed from tuberculosis that it was a death sentence was no vaccination and he was going to die and his uncle or his brother. I've read two different accounts but took him to a meeting to be prayed for and he was lying in the backseat.
He was he was weak for weeks within dying and the Lord said to him, I'm going to kill you tonight but I want you to take my message of healing to the world and I want you building University or young people can be trained in a Christian atmosphere and he built Oral Roberts University or you so but that's why he preach people. So whether you like them or not reasonably feeling is because he got the enemy to say this. I know many people have this a negative connotation. Well, now we should talk too much about healing take people have that connotation until you they get sick or someone in their family get sick and it's not a bad thing.
If God heals you is not a bad thing. It's a good thing, and this is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This doesn't mean that you have a gift that you go around everyone you pray for good seal.
This means that you get healed this like this is the gifts of healings plural. It means everyone is important to an here's the last one working of miracles, working miracles divine intervention that alters our natural circumstances divine intervention that alters our natural circumstances and how many of you at some time in your life have experienced a miracle. Would you put your hand up. I keep them up for moment, look around and minimizing pain perchance how in the world would we ever believe itů Miracles when you say so is no way you can stop there. Miracles is again stopping.and God is a miraculous when he gets up in the morning. It is miracle when if he wants coffee, he says, let there be confident that this lady gets his. He is a miraculous number.
He did miracles all through the Old Testament all through the New Testament. Why would he ever saw leukocytes and if you been saved, you had a miracle you had a supernatural innovation in your life.
