God did not give all gifts to all. The only gift that God gave to all is the indwelling Spirit itself. See Acts 2:38,39
Not only are you scripturally incorrect...but in your very statement is the contradiction to your own point!
First of all The Holy Spirit HIMSELF not itself!
The Holy Spirit is not an IT!
Your choice of words shows us that your first and greatest mistake is NOT BEING ABSOLUTELY CLEAR within your own heart and mind that the Holy Spirit IS GOD
So what you, unwittingly speak of as "the only gift" IS actually THE GREATEST GIFT, GOD HIMSELF LIVING WITHIN US!!!!
That established my next point is God is still powerful today as He has always been, He is still capable and able to do anything He's ever done!Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Now since basic Christian doctrine seems to often go awry in this forum please refer to the following verses;
No doubt someone will say Jesus was only speaking to the Apostles in these verses as well...to which I say, if you see your faith in that shabby of a light, there is no hope for you in this discussion for anyone that one denies themselves the promise of praying to God in the Name of Jesus....
FYI Praying to the Father in Jesus Name
That's what known as AUTHORITY, in legal terms its whats known as Power of Attorney
If you have the legal right to use a person's name you have authority IN THE NAME of that person, in this case the person is Jesus!"If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it
. John 14:14
John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
John 16:23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
John 16:24[/b] Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
Lets summarize the 3 Points established herein
The Holy Spirit is God
God is the same He does not change
We have the authority to pray to The Father in the Name of Jesus
The Holy Spirit is the Gift of the Father
The Holy Spirit lives in us
ALL THE GIFTS BELONG TO HIM
The only weak link to The Gifts operating through a believer
IS THE WEAKNESS OF THE BELIEVERS OWN FAITH and His lack of understanding of what he has been given and WHOM it is living within him. Hence a weak faithed believer will not lay hands praying for healing because they don't believe God still heals according to ones faith
The only gift that God gave to all is the indwelling Spirit itself.
Its actually quite funny in a very sad sort of way that you see the greatest of all Gifts God has given as somehow minimal or not enough
God gave us His Indwelling Presence and you call that only
and on top of that you see His Inner presence somehow as inert and lifeless incapable of healing, miracles and all the things He is capable of doing
Was He inert inside of Jesus when Jesus walked as a man on earth?
How can He lead you and guide you, if you see Him as some sort of inert lifeless force?
Seriously some of you need to stop reading and start praying....SERIOUSLY!
You do not understand what you're reading....at ALL!
