The gifts of the Holy Spirit are divine
They are supernatural
they cannot be acquired by natural means, by
learning, you cannot buy them
you cannot imitate them
they come from God
you can maybe fake them
but the gifts of the Holy Spirit are supernatural
As happened on the day of Pentecost
when the Holy Spirit was poured out
on these disciples who were praying and waiting on the Lord
they spoke in languages that they did not know
and they never repeated that
because those were utterances given to them on that specific day
They didn't have the ability
to go and speak those languages
It was only for that specific day that
they spoke those tongues
We read in Acts 2:7
They were amazed and astonished, saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans?
“And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born?
“Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya around Cyrene,
and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11Cretans and Arabs
—we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God.
And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, “What does this mean?
But others were mocking and saying, “They are full of sweet wine.”
Dear friends, these tongues that the disciples were speaking, that was not an ability that they had acquired
They only had that utterance on that specific day
We also see that Simon the Sorcerer
wanted to buy the ability
to give the Holy Spirit to people so that
if he lays his hands on people
that they will receive the Holy Spirit
We read that in Acts 8:18
Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was bestowed through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money,
19saying, “Give this authority to me as well, so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit
But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!
You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God.
Dear friends, we can not acquire the gifts of God
Many people say that they have a gift of languages
because they can speak another natural language
If you can acquire it naturally
it's not Divine
It's not from God (Not a Holy Spirit Gift)
It is an ability that you have acquired
but certainly it is not a gift from the Holy Spirit
We also see that a symilar thing happened with Paul
We read in Acts 13:8
But Elymas the magician was opposing them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
:9 But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze on him, and said
:10 "You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness,
will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord?
:11 "Now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time."
And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand.
Dear friends, the Holy Spirit of God operates in the way that it wishes
for the edification of the Body of Christ
It is not given to us as abilities to use for ourselves
for our own benefit
We also read in 1 Corinthians 12:4 Paul says
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.
:5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord.
:6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.
:7 But to each one is given the MANIFESTATION of the Spirit for the common good.
:8 For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit;
:9 to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
:10 and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits,
to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues.
:11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as HE wills.
Just as the Spirit of God wills
NOT by the will of man
not what we want to do
it is by the will of God
Dear friends, if you receive knowledge from the Spirit of God
or wisdom from the Holy Spirit
it is not carnal knowledge
It is not something that you have learned from Books
or that somebody else has told you
it is Divine knowledge that God puts into you
All Divine gifts, all Holy Spirit gifts are Divine gifts
they are supernatural gifts. Do not let anybody deceive you
and say that God has given them a gift but it is also a gift that could be acquired naturally
then it would not be a Holy Spirit gift
Then it is a natural talent dear friend
So dear friends, God has promised us gifts
for the Body of Christ for the edification of the Body of Christ
and therefore let us lay aside everything
let us repent of ourselves and follow Jesus Christ with a pure heart
and allow the Spirit of God to operate through us according to the will of God
not according to our own desires and for our own benefits
Because there are some people who FAKE the gifts of the Holy Spirit
but that is not the Spirit of God my friend
and therefore you need to be guided by the Holy Spirit so that you can DISCERN
through supernatural knowledge given to you wisdom from God
whether a person is speaking from the Spirit of God
of from himself. But you can not decern that from your own feelings or from what somebody else tells you
or from reading it from the Bible or from nowhere else but an impartation, a knowledge, a wisdom
given to you, directly by the Holy Spirit of God
Dear friend, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are Divine and supernatural
May Jesus bless you. �
