Just a thought on the continuation of gifts of God’s Spirit.

There are those who believe that the gifts of God such as prophecy and miracles have ceased. However we can see clearly that Paul did not hold to such a mindset. Paul said to the Corinthians that God had enriched them in all utterance and in all knowledge and that the testimony of Christ was confirmed in them, so that they would come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. ~ See 1 Corinthians 1:5-7

In Paul’s view, the gifts the Corinthians had been endowed with were going to continue until the coming of Christ.

While it is true that unscrupulous people mimic the gifts of God for their own profit, the true gifts of God will continue to be bestowed on God’s people as the Lord wills. Let us yield to the Holy Spirit who is at work within the body to build us up into Christ as one new man and the true temple that God dwells in by His Holy Spirit.
