The 9 Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Table of Contents
 
In addition to the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit,the Bible also tells us that there are
 
9 gifts of the Holy Spirit.For the record, we feel that the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit are much moreimportant than the 9 gifts are.As the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit have to do with God imparting part of His divinenature into the core of our personalities to help make us into a much better andholy people.
God’s ultimate
aim for all of us is our sanctification in Him,and part of that sanctification process has to do with the Holy Spirit Himself transmitting 9specific divine qualities and attributes into our personalities.
But if the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit are the cake, then the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit are the icing on the cake.
 
Put these two together, and allow God to work with a believer withboth sets of these 9 fruits and 9 gifts.
 
And you will have one mighty sanctified soldier of Jesus Christ, asthe 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit will give you some serious heavy
ammunition to have at your disposal as you walk with God’s
anointing in your daily life.
 
I call the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit torpedo gifts, as the Holy Spirit can manifestany one of these 9 gifts through any believer anytime that He will want to doso.Each one of these gifts are major power gifts, and they are all direct,supernatural, miraculous manifestations direct from the Holy Spirit Himself.And any Christian can get themselves in proper place to receive these 9 gifts, asthe apostle Paul himself tells us not to be afraid to try and stir up these 9specific gifts with the Lord.Here is the direct verse from our Bible on the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit:
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit 
of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, toanother the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the sameSpirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to
 
another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues,to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He
wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7 
-11)
 
Now I will number and bold each one of these 9 gifts of the Spirit so you canhave all of them right at the top of this article at a very quick glance:
 
Not only does the Bible tell us that these 9 gifts of the Spirit are available to allbelievers, but then it takes it one step further and tells us that we can actuallytry and stir these 9 gifts up with the Lord.[viralpullquote ]Not only does theBible tell us that these 9 gifts of the Spirit are available to all believers, but thenit takes it one step further and tells us that we can actually try and stir these 9gifts up with the Lord.[/viralpullquote]Here are 5 very good verses telling us to not only desire spiritual gifts, but toalso not be afraid to try and stir these gifts up with the Lord:
1. “Therefore, brethren,
 
desire earnestly to prophesy
.” (1 Corinthians
14:39)
2. “… and
 
desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you mayprophesy
.” (1 Corinthians 14:1)
 
3. “
Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophecies
.” (1
Thessalonians 5:19)
4. “
Do not neglect the gift that is in you
 
… Meditate on these things, giveyourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.” (1
Timothy 4:14)5.
 “Therefore I remind you to
 
stir up the gift of God
which is in you
through the laying on of my hands.” (2 Timothy 1:6)
 
As such, every believer should go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to releasethese 9 gifts through them anytime that He will want to do so.Let God know that you will be a willing vessel for the manifestations of thesegifts, and that you will give Him a full and solid green light to manifest thesegifts though you at anytime that He will want to do so.
 
These 9 gifts are a tremendous help and aid to not only you in your ownpersonal walk with the Lord, but many of them can be also used to help otherpeople out as special needs and circumstances arise in their lives.Notice the very first line in this verse says that these 9 gifts are given to eachone for the
“profit of all.”
 I will go ahead and break down each one of these 9 gifts of the Spirit into theirown article so you can click on the link to read each one. And then come backand read my conclusion.As you reach each of the gifts you can see exactly what each one of these 9gifts are all about, and how important they can become in your life if you willonly allow the Holy Spirit to manifest them through you at anytime that He willwant to do so.
 
Conclusion
Just stop and think about what all 9 of these gifts from the Holy Spirit are reallyabout. We are talking about God Almighty Himself coming down andmanifesting a part of Himself through these 9 gifts, since God, Jesus, and theHoly Spirit are perfectly one with one another in the Divine Trinity.This is what I call push-the-envelope kind of activity with the Lord. With everysingle one of these 9 gifts being direct, miraculous manifestations from the HolySpirit, you are attempting to tread into deeper waters with the Lord. And that isexactly what God is asking all of us to do with these 9 special gifts.
When the apostle Paul, who I believe was the greatest of all of theNew Testament apostles, tells us to
“desire earnestly”
thesespiritual gifts and not to be afraid to try and stir these gifts up withthe Lord, then you know God the Father is giving all us a big, fat,whopper green light to come after these 9 specific gifts.
 
Just think how many more people you can help and save if you willallow the Holy Spirit to manifest some of these 9 gifts through youfrom time to time.
