The revelation and touch of Jesus flows through the influence of the Holy Spirit. Jesus as the Anointed One is our perfect example in everything. In Jesus we see various operations, gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit. He has saved you to continue His ministry on the earth. Jesus has delivered you from darkness and connected you with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is your perfect Teacher, Counselor, Advocate and Source of God's love, life and power. The Holy Spirit makes you capable to hear, see and understand the ministry of Jesus. He will make you sensitive, wise, strong and faithful to minister with Jesus.

Jesus wants to use every believer in His ministry. But He can use only those, who are available in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. He does not need your power and wisdom. He needs your heart, spirit, soul and body through which you can be obedient to His inspiration and leading. Through His gifts Jesus meets people who need Him. He has gifts and blessings abundantly but all people are not able to receive His gifts in faith. Therefore, the core of your ministry is to help people receive Jesus and His gifts and blessings in the Holy Spirit.

Your and are able to receive and minister with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. First, you connect yourself with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Then you listen what Jesus is speaking into your spirit. When you hear and understand, you will obey. Then the Holy Spirit performs the supernatural part of your ministry.

1 Cor. 12:4-10: Now there are different gifts and effects of God's favor, , but the Spirit is the same; and there are different ministries, but the Lord is the same; and there are different effects of power, but God, who works all in all, is the same. Now each is given a continual manifestation of the effects of the Spirit for the common good. For indeed through the Spirit one is (continuously) given the message of wisdom (logos), the message of knowing / knowing / experiencing another under the influence of the same Spirit; to yet another faith (of God) is given by the same Spirit, to yet another gifts of healing by that one Spirit; to yet another is given workings of power, to another prophecy, to another discernment of spirits, to yet another kinds of tongues, to yet another the interpretation of tongues.

In the letter to the Corinthians, Paul lists nine gifts of God that can be identified. The nine gifts of the Holy Spirit are:

  • The Word of Knowledge
  • The Word of Wisdom
  • The Gift of Prophecy
  • The Gift of Faith
  • The Gifts of Healings
  • The Working of Miracles
  • The Discerning of Spirits
  • Different Kinds of Tongues
  • The Interpretation of Tongues

The Word of Wisdom means the revelation, understanding and wisdom given by the Holy Spirit to act correctly or make the right decisions in a certain situation. This applies both to the process of transformation into the form of Jesus and to one's personal life or ministry. The word of wisdom gives you the ability to act in a right way in a right time. All confusion, fear and wavering will disappear and you will have strength to do the necessary things.

The Word of Knowledge means revelation about things that the receiver has not had before. It is often supernatural knowledge that you can obtain only by the Holy Spirit. The word of knowledge can apply to any situation. Through this knowledge, Jesus solves problems, reveals hidden things, shows solutions according to His mind. For example, through the message/word of knowledge, Jesus can cause an expectation and faith to receive healing, deliverance. The word of knowledge can save you from wrong decisions. The word of wisdom can be multidimensional collection of supernatural knowledge that opens doors to other miracles.

The Gift of Faith means God's presence in your spirit and soul. The faith of God connects you with Jesus and the Father in the Holy Spirit. The faith of God (the gift of faith) is activated in your life when your soul, (mind, thinking, emotions and will) is united with the plans, thoughts, emotions and will of God. Then your natural faith in your soul manifests God's faith in the visible world.

Everything in God's Kingdom happens by faith of God. This is different to the natural faith, that every man has as a result of natural birth and growth in life. Jesus commanded us to have the faith of God as our possession or as our character (Mark 11:22). The Holy Spirit develops the faith of God in our spirit. By receiving truths of the Kingdom of God we renew our minds to accept more of the faith of God. We operate by God's faith in His kingdom and by natural faith in natural world.

Jesus can in special situations strengthen the faith of God in your spirit to produce a certain miracle through you. This is God's love and care towards His people who do not have such power of faith in their spirit and soul. We are called to grow in the faith of God, because by God's faith we overcome the world and receive more of His blessings.

The gifts of healing mean both the ability of the servant to convey the healing anointing and the healing touch of Jesus to the person in need of healing. One of the goals of growing into the image of Jesus is to be healed and receive the anointing of healing. You can minister the gifts of healing right after getting born again. You need only surrender your life to Jesus and let the Holy Spirit anoint you in the moment of ministry. Faith working through love is the key to all the gifts of the Spirit, but it is especially important for the gifts of healing to work.

The Working of Miracles means the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit in any situation. The working of miracles happens often in a longer period. The faith of God must reign over the situation and circumstances. There may be many stages and operations of the Holy Spirit before the final result is achieved. operated in various ways. You can work miracles alone or you can combine your faith and life with many people to produce supernatural manifestation of Jesus in the Holy Spirit.

Jesus can touch natural conditions and transcend all natural laws and human experiences. Hurricanes can be ordered to die down. Supernatural transportations from place to place can occur. The power of the Holy Spirit can stop demonized people and set them free instantly.

The Gift of Prophecy means both the capacity to proclaim under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and the message/declaration for the receiver. Paul teaches a lot about speaking under the inspiration and anointing of the Holy Spirit. This kind of speaking is call in Old Testament "prophesying". In those days, only certain God's chosen people were able to receive in their souls that inspiration which came directly from God.

The purpose and essence of the new covenant is that every born again person speaks and proclaims messages inspired by the Holy Spirit. In addition of that there is an office of the prophet in the New Covenant. The prophet has cleansed and dedicated his life in a special manner into unity with God. The prophet has a special gift of revelation. God uses the prophet in the New Covenant to prepare the body of Christ into new life in His Kingdom.

1 Cor. 14:29-33: And let the prophets speak by two or three, and let the others discern. But if a revelation be made to another sitting by, let the first keep silence. For ye all can prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted; and the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets; for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,

The prophets of the old covenant spoke under the influence of the Holy Spirit but they did not have the inner presence of the Holy Spirit in their spirit. We now have a completely different world in the New Covenant. The Holy Spirit is in you and want to operate through you according to your surrender and obedience to Jesus. You are called to build the body of Christ with your anointed speaking and proclamation. When the love of the Father fills you, the inspiration of the Holy Spirit starts flowing through you. You will encourage, exhort and console people with your prophesying.

The discerning of spirits means the special ability to recognize and discern from each other

  • the Holy Spirit and His inspiration,
  • effects and manifestations,
  • the natural spirit of man and his inspiration, effects and manifestations and,
  • the spirits of darkness and it's inspiration, effects and manifestation and
  • the mixture of all these spirits

The purpose of the gift of the discerning of spirits is to help the saved to be cleansed and delivered from the interference of darkness. The discerning of the spirits is necessary for the whole body of Christ. There are deceiving spirits all around. The Holy Spirit wants to navigate you through any obstacle and confusion.

The key in receiving the gift of discernment is to obey the teachings of Jesus and apostles. The truths of God's Kingdom will calibrate your soul to discern the will of God and deception of darkness from each other. God calls you to separate your spirit, soul body and your whole life to Him. The Holy Spirit and Fire will cleanse your deepest areas of soul and give you absolute discernment through your spirit. The gift of discerning spirits will give you enormous strength and faith to deliver and heal people from oppression of darkness.

Different Kinds of Tongues mean the ability given by the Holy Spirit to speak and understand a natural language that man has not studied before. In many revivals, this gift has equipped missionaries to go to that country to preach Good News of Jesus. This gift can operate in various ways. You may speak in different tongues once in your life or repeatedly in different situations. You may speak in different tongues even without knowing it, because you speak a lot in your prayer language.

I have heard a testimony where a believer has unknowingly spoken some ancient language. In the audience was an agnostic doctor who had studied this ancient language. Then this doctor suddenly heard somebody to speak that language that nobody has spoken in centuries. This supernatural speaking in unknown language convinced the agnostic doctor to receive Jesus.

Different kinds of tongues must be separated from "normal" praying in tongues. Praying in tongues is the evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in believer's heart. This kind of speaking in tongues is mainly for your personal growth in spiritual life. Different kind of tongues is for your ministry. The gift of speaking in different tongues was manifested powerfully in Jerusalem when the apostles were speaking under the influence of the Holy Spirit and Fire.

Acts 2:6-8: And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speaking in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying, Behold, are not all these that speak Galilaeans? And how hear we, every man in our own language wherein we were born?

The Interpretation of Tongues operates under the prophetic anointing. There "normal" speaking in tongues does not have the same prophetic inspiration as speaking in tongues that God wants to be interpreted. The Holy Spirit may give interpretation of the tongues to one or two persons that are able to step into prophetic flow of the Spirit. Both the speaker and the interpreter will know in their spirits the inspiration to operate like this.

The operation of all gifts of the Spirit requires faith. You need to step over your natural thinking and faith into the realm of God's faith in the Holy Spirit. The love of the Father will equip and inspire you to minister in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

1 Cor. 14:26-31: How is it then, brothers? When you come together, everyone has something to give: what has a hymn, what a teaching, what a revelation, what speaks in tongues, what explains; let everything become a building. If speaking in tongues, let only two or at most three speak each time, and one at a time, and let one explain; but if there is no explainer, let them be silent in the congregation and let them speak to themselves and to God. Let two or three speak of the prophets, and let the rest criticize; but if another sitting therein receives a revelation, let the first hold his peace. For you may all prophesy, one after another, that all may be taught, and all exhorted.

The Holy Spirit works through you too, according to your spiritual dedication and practice. Everyone strives into the kingdom of God with effort. You need to win the resistance of your "old man". Jesus wants to meet you and use you more than you think. He has a plan of the manifestation of God's glory for you too. You will minister powerfully in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

1 Cor. 12:11-13: But all this is effected by one and the same Spirit, distributing to each separately as he wills. For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so is Christ; for in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether we were Jews or Greeks, whether we were slaves or free, and we have all been made to drink of the same Spirit.
