The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

There are approximately 25 giftings that we can locate in the Word of God hat we attribute to being “Gifts of the Holy Spirit”, all of which are infact, as we have stated “gifts”. They are Gifts from God to each one of us and are contained within the very character of God Himself, imparted to us in the form of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

They are an enabling from God, delivered into our lives and made manifest by the Holy Spirit working through us. 2 Corinthians 4:1-7 tells us the calling that is upon our lives and the equipping, concluding in Vs 7 with “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.”

In this course you will be taught about the gifts and encouraged to operate in them in your every day life.

The following points will be addressed as we go through this study. Though possibly not in order of that in which they appear below, all will be covered as they are extremely important characteristics associated with the nature, use, purpose and manifestational presence and expression of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
