Your Name Called, Your Turn

Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different ministries, but the same Lord. And there are different activities, but the same God is active in everyone and everything. A manifestation of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial:

to one is given a message of wisdom through the Spirit,
to another, a message of knowledge by the same Spirit,
to another, faith by the same Spirit,
to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
to another, the performing of miracles,
to another, prophecy,
to another, distinguishing between spirits,
to another, different kinds of languages,
to another, interpretation of languages.

But one and the same Spirit is active in all these, distributing to each one as He wills.
(1 Corinthians 12:4-11 Holman Christian Standard Bible ©®)

A manifestation of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial. Today. Though many evangelical book writers and television preachers would blaspheme Him by saying otherwise, no Scripture says that we should expect what Paul called normal to stop being normal except 1 Corinthians 13:9-10: “We know in part, we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will come to an end.” Feel free to guess what Paul was describing as “the perfect,” but guessing is what you would be doing, because he didn’t elaborate. It isn’t the King James Version, though some think that is what he was writing about.

120 people were gathered in the house when Pentecost came and then the Holy Spirit came. All of them received Him. All of them manifested Him. He didn’t just fill the 11 apostles.

After Jesus became our great High Priest, there was no more need for a tribe of priests: we are now a kingdom of priests. So – how does He want to manifest Himself in and through you? If you don’t know yet, then ask Him to cause you to know and to be very effective in it! If it seems He is pointing to something that you are unprepared for, it is likely right. If you didn’t need Him to fill you in order to be capable of it, something would be wrong. Be awesome!
