Make sure you don't confuse the "Gifts" of the Spirit with the "Fruit" of the Spirit. ALL Christians have the "Fruit" but we may differ on the gifts, although all Christains have at least one gift, and some mutiple gifts. Read 1 Corthians 12:1-11 to get the context. While some say some of the gifts are no longer needed, I really disgree, the Bible gives no indication of any gift not being needed. Some may not be needed as much as they were.

Hi again. I re-read your message and I think you mean this in Acts # 1: 4-5. Get your Bible out and look now with me. And Acts 2:38 is good. and Romans 6:23. For the wages of sin is death, BUT, the GIFT of God is eternal life. Please reads theses and see that they are in the Holy Bible we trust. Trust the Bible, that is what Christians live by

Please go and get your bible with me. Look at 1 Corinthians #12:4-11. You can always trust the Bible. The Bible is the living word of God that we live by. We learn to trust what we read and find salvation through Jesus. It is written in the Bible, you can see it for yourself. Read on in that same Ch. and you will see more. Also, Eph. 4:10-11. Please find a Church who teaches the whole truth as it IS written in the word of God.

By C.O.C. I believe you mean Church of Christ. My understanding is that they reject the gifts of the Spirit, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and some even go as far as to say that the Spirit is not even a part of the Trinity. Many even say that any so-called "manifestations of the Spirit" are 100% demonic. They also believe that you are born again and receive your salvation at the moment of water baptism.Check them out before you get too involved.

Not believing in the gift of the H.S. would be calling Jesus a liar since He said He had to go so the H.S. could come and minister unto us. The gift is real, available ready to transform into the likeness of Jesus.

When filled with the spirit it's clear what God wants.
I was at a day labor joint between jobs.
A new creature, and over qualified for all the jobs there I witnessed to as many people as possible.
The spirit kept telling me to talk to that loud guy in the hat...2 hours went by and although I was one of the first there it was down to 3 of us.
I left to go donate plasma, got in the car and guess who knocked on the window...Yeah.
Get in I told him, and a new Brother was born.

What is C.o.C.?
Who is right? The bible. 1 Corinthians 12:11, "But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are real and essentual, many dont have them for they dont want all of Jesus just part Luke 11:13
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Ask and ye shall recieve, knock and the door will be opened . Dont quench the Gifts of the Holy Spirit .
