In the past, I have spent many articles sharing why I believe all gifts of the Spirit still exist today, including those found in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 and Ephesians 4:11. Thus, there is no surprise I would easily identify myself as a continuationist. I even have another blog where a colleague and I post articles giving biblical, theological and historical evidence for the continuation of these gifts. You can see it at To Be Continued.
Many of those articles that I have posted have been in regards to the gifts of prophecy and tongues, not to mention postings about the ministry of prophets and apostles today. Yes, I am a full continuationist believing ALL gifts are needed in the church today. Jesus never intended anything but this.
Within our local church context of Cornerstone, I have begun to pick back up on the gifts of the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12-14. I had shared much back in the autumn time on the empowering of the Holy Spirit, as well as on prophecy and tongues. But I wanted to go back and look at the 6 other gifts mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 – message of wisdom, message of knowledge, faith, healings, miracles and discerning of spirits.
