Many do not receive gifts because they lack faith. Putting the gifts into practice requires faith . . . By: Noel Castillo
Thus says the great I AM, He who lives forever and ever:
Faith Lord? (I asked)
Yes, it takes faith. It requires faith to lay hands on someone and know that I the Almighty will do the work and heal. It takes faith to believe that it is I who allow you to speak new tongues (even if they are heard repetitive and strange) but the Spirit speaks mysteries through them. Faith is necessary to believe that someone can interpret tongues through the power of the Holy Spirit. It takes faith to deliver a prophecy and know that what I have spoken is going to be fulfilled because I am faithful. It takes faith to know that it is I who speaks through dreams and visions and who gives the interpretation of what they mean.
Many do not receive gifts because although they receive them, they do not have the faith to put them into practice. Many do not receive gifts because they believe in a limited god, who does not speak, who does not speak through prophecy, who does not give the word of knowledge, who does not reveal. That is why they do not grow spiritually, that is why despite being Christians for many years they do not advance and do not receive gifts. They speak of Me, but they do not know me, says the Sovereign Lord. Many of these “Christians” criticize those who receive gifts because they have not experienced it. The gifts are free and available, but they work in faith. They are for the blessing of souls, not for anyone to boast, but to bless lives.
Many do not receive gifts because they lack faith. This is how the precious Holy Spirit of Jehovah finish ministering. All glory and praise are His alone.
Let us ask for faith and that the Holy Spirit give gifts according to His will.
James 1:17 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father of lights, in whom there is no change, nor shadow of variation.
Hebrews 11: 6 6 But without faith it is impossible to please God; for it is necessary that he who comes to God believe that there is, and that he is the rewarder of those who seek him.
1 Corinthians 12 1 I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, about spiritual gifts. 2 You know that when you were Gentiles, you went astray, taking you, as you were being led, to the dumb idols. 3 Therefore I let you know that no one who speaks by the Spirit of God calls Jesus anathema; and no one can call Jesus Lord except by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there is a diversity of gifts, but the Spirit is the same. 5 And there is a diversity of ministries, but the Lord is the same. 6 And there are diversity of operations, but God, who does all things in all, is the same. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for profit. 8 For to him is given the word of wisdom by the Spirit; to another, the word of science according to the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit; and to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit. 10 To another, performing miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discernment of spirits; to another, different kinds of languages; and to another, interpretation of languages. 11 But all these things are done by one and the same Spirit, distributing each one in particular as he wants.
