The Person of Holy Spirit
& His Fruit, Gifts, Roles

Do not get bogged down in your mind trying to comprehed.  Just allow the Holy Spirit to minister His truths to your own spirit.  His God Spirit to our human spirit.  God functions or manifests Himself in may ways: as the Trinity (Dad, Son, Holy Spirit), lover, husband, judge, etc.  His/the Holy Spirit operates in 7 significant ways, according to scripture & according to Todd Bentley in The Reality of the Supernatural World
chapter 9 The Seven Spirits of God According to Bentley, the 7 Spirits are 7 mantles/personalities/attributes rather than 9 gifts. 
The 7 Spirits/mantles/personalities/persons/individuals rested and remained on Jesus during His earthly ministry
(see Revelation 1:4-5 below);
whereas our 9 tangible gifts/anointings of the Holy Spirit come down & go up as the need arises. 
In Revelation 1:4 the 7 Spirits exist in front of God's throne.  A capital S in the word Spirit indicates a personage as well as part of the Godhead, whereas a lower case s in the word spirit indicates a thing. 
In Proverbs 4 some of the 7 Spirits present themselves as a female (a she).

The 9 gifts of the spirit are things not persons. The 9 temporary gifts we do not take to heaven with us.  Only the fruit of our work will be noticed by God at the end of our life, not the gifts Benny Hinn says that the most his healing anointing lasts is 5 hours.  Then it lifts off, back up to heaven.  It is His/God's work, not ours/Benny's!
Todd Bentley cites 4 types of Holy Spirit power: dunamis, ischus, kratos, & exousia (delegated authority).

Personhood of the Holy Spirit

Kuhlman, Kathryn @ The Greatest Power in the World ( (edited excerpt) DOD 2/20/1976
Foreword - "Beloved, if you are a (born-again/saved) Christian, an heir of God & a joint-heir with Christ Jesus, then that glorious experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit is for you. It is a part of your inheritance."
Chapter #1 - "'In speaking of the ďday of Pentecost,' I am not talking about only 1 experience that they had in the upper room when the Holy Spirit came. We are living in the day of Pentecost
This day of Pentecost will continue until that moment when the Holy Spirit leaves this earth even as Jesus left. When He leaves, the Holy Spirit will take with Him the Church made up of believers who have been born into the Body of Christ...
Holy Spirit has been in existence always...He was present at the time of creation...
It was 1 of the greatest revelations Iíve ever received...The Bible is the Word of God. 
Its author is the Holy Spirit.  In its entirety, it is the revelation of Jesus Christ...I believe this (fall & evicition of Adam & Eve from the garden) prompted God to call for a conference in Heaven where the three Persons of the Godhead met: the Father, Son & Holy Spirit to discuss the sacrifice that must be provided for manís redemption. Around that conference table these 3 gathered, each with a distinct personality, but always working in perfect harmony...Jesus turned to the Father & offered Himself, through the Holy Spirit, to be given for manís salvation...Holy Spirit, Who is the power of the Trinity, must have turned to Jesus & vowed, 'I will do my part in fulfilling the plan. If You go, I will take care of Your Ďpress.í
I will be Your promotion man'...He did not wait until Jesus came in form of a babe that 1st Christmas morning.
He began to reveal Jesus to the hearts of men & women immediately. Let me remind you that whenever the words ďthe Spirit of GodĒ are used in the Bible, they always refer to the Holy Spirit. They do not refer to God the Father, neither do they refer to Jesus Christ the Son. Whether in the Old or the New Testament, the words ďthe Spirit of GodĒ refer to the Holy Spirit. It was the same Holy Spirit who gave the Old & New Testament prophets all of the revelations that they received. It was the Holy Spirit who revealed to John all that is recorded in the last book of the New Testament. At the very outset of Revelation, John says: ďI was in the Spirit on the Lordís dayĒ (Revelation 1:10). All that John received in prophecy regarding these last days, we are seeing literally fulfilled before our very eyes. That which was prophesied and looked for with expectation for generations is now quickly becoming history. The most up-to-date book that we have today is the last book of the New Testament:
The Revelation of Jesus Christ. All these things were given by revelation of the Holy Spirit in exactly the same way the Holy Spirit gave revelations to the Old Testament prophets."
Chapter #2 - It is most difficult for a Spirit-filled person to work in perfect harmony & oneness of purpose with someone who is NOT Spirit-filled. I have found that there are some people that I would find impossible to work with day in & day out in the Lordís work. They would be no help to me whatsoever, although they are born-again Christians. You see, there is a difference when the Holy Spirit has taken over the life of an individual, has taken his mind, his body, fills him completely & has given him the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).
It is then that it is not 2 or 3 minds, not several minds, but all minds working as 1 because it is the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 1:10)"
Chapter #3 - "The 1st step downward is always when one refuses to obey the Lord. Remember, the power in the life of Samson that enabled him to do what he did, was the power of the Holy Spirit. When Samson obeyed God, the Holy Spirit came upon him. But when he turned from obeying God, the mighty power of the Holy Spirit was taken from him..(Sadly) Samson was NOT aware of the fact that the Holy Spirit had departed.
Chapter #4 - "Holy Spirit...came upon a few selected individuals during the Old Testament era...But all were a sovereign act of God...It is Godís plan & purpose that all who are born again should be filled with the Spirit;
but it was not so in Old Testament times. Neither: Moses, Joseph, Gideon, nor Samson were filled with the Spirit because of some special thing within themselves. They did NOT do something to merit the Holy Spiritís presence. God gave them that gift sovereignly. They had nothing to do with it, nor could they receive the gift by asking. God chose & made them His instruments. The 1st important distinction to observe then is that the Holy Spiritís indwelling in the Old Testament was not universal for all believers. But it is today, in this the day of Pentecost. The 2nd thing that we must observe is that the Holy Spirit came upon (Old Testament) men to empower them for some special service...Holy Spirit departed & Saul was left without His presence & power. The presence of the Holy Spirit was not something that was permanent with Saul. He came upon (NOT within) him only at intervals...
David, fearing lest the same marvelous power & Spirit be taken from him, cried out:
'Cast me not away from Thy presence & take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.'Ē
Chapter 5 - "All (spiritual) revelation is given by the Holy Spirit...the same mighty 3rd Person of the Trinity...
You cannot go to school to obtain. You receive the Holy Spirit on your knees. His revelations must come straight from Him...The Holy Bible...dares to write out in advance the future history of this world...
Prophecy did not originate in the mind of the author who did the writing. The one who did the writing only supplied the: vessel, body, flesh, as a stenographer (on behalf of the revelator, Holy Spirit).
Chapter 6 - "As a means of identification to the death angel, the Israelites were commanded to place the blood of a sacrificial lamb on the side posts & top of their doors. God promised that when the death angel saw the covering of the blood of a spotless lamb over and around the door, it would be a sign to him to 'pass over' that home & death would not strike there. From that time forward, the Passover was observed every year as a memorial to Godís great deliverance & Godís protection...We can see that that which took place in the Old Testament was in anticipation of an event in the New Testament. The Lord Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, shed His blood that we might come under the covering of His blood & that He might hover over us to protect us as His own. Jesus is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.  By the sprinkling of the blood of the lamb without spot & blemish at that Passover in Egypt, we see a type & a shadow of the One who was to come in the future (represented via Feast of Trumpets & Day of Atonement): the very (resurected) Son of the Living God...
Christians, commemorate the Passover celebration every time we receive communion & partake of the broken bread & wine at the Lordís Supper...In the Old Testament you have Christ crucified (Passover/Good Friday) & Christ resurrected (2nd Feast of Unleavened Bread/Easter), as represented in these 2 feasts.
The (4th) Feast of Pentecost is next, following 50 days after the (3rd) Feast of Firstfruits...
It makes no difference whether we are Jew or Gentile, whether we are Catholic or Protestant.
It makes no difference where we have our church membership or what may be our nationality. The thing that makes all the difference in the world is this experience of being born again, that we have accepted the very Son of the Living God in the forgiveness of our sins. It is the blood (of Jesus') that makes an atonement for the soul...
(To replace Jesus Who left to become our High Priest in heaven) Holy Spirit would come & take up His residence here on earth to complete His assignment (to reveal & glorify Jesus).
Chapter 7 - "He (Jesus) knew He would have to have the Holy Spirit (baptism) as His wonderful Strengthener in order to withstand the temptations of Satan...(At water baptism) the 3 Persons are again united...
He (Holy Spirit) would be His Strengthener for the work He had to do as He represented the Father in person.
As Jesus walked this earth, He was literally & in reality God in the flesh walking this earth...
He (Holy Spirit)...literally filled that vessel with Himself & His power...'Ye (too) shall receive power, after Holy Ghost is come upon you' (Acts 1:8)...It was never in Jesusí plan that anyone of His own, that any Christian, should live a life of defeat...We need to appropriate that which is ours today as members of His Body...
In Genesis 1:26, God said to the Son & Holy Spirit: 'Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.'
You & I, products of Godís creation, are made in the image & likeness of God. Therefore, I believe...that God has a body, face, hands...Holy Spirit is not just an: attribute, a great influence, a mystical force...
(Holy Spirit is a) strong, glorious invisible person...vitally important to the life of every one of Godís children...
'I (Jesus) will pray the Father & He shall give you another Comforter...(to) abide with you forever' (John 14:16)
...I go away because I have another position...of great High Priest. I cannot stay with you here...I must leave...
Jesus continues, 'But ye know Him: for (now) He dwelleth with you & (subsequently) shall be in you' (John 14:17) (via the Holy Spirit baptism, often evidenced via speaking in tongues)...Holy Spirit is with every born-again Christian. If you have had that new birth experience, He is with you...'He shall be in you,' Jesus said (if you invite Him in)...'Why?' It is because time is running out. The Holy Spirit is about to leave. We are coming to the end of this dispensation. Even as Jesus left, 1 of these days the Holy Spirit is going back to heaven again & He knows His time is short. He knows that very soon now the Church will be raptured & He is literally working overtime...Jesus said, ďHe [the Holy Spirit] shall teach you all things & bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have said unto youĒ (John 14:26).'
Chapter 9 - "1 of the great differences between the Old & New Testaments is the changed relationship between Holy Spirit & Godís people. Jesusí disciples were in training with Him for 3 years, but not until the Day of Pentecost were they endued with power from on high...In the spiritual world the seed [the (spoken) Word of God] must be vitalized by the Holy Spirit, otherwise it is barren...The baptism of the Holy Spirit is an occupancy...
If you are a Christian & born again, this 2nd experience, the infilling of the Holy Spirit, is important (vital)...
Holy Spirit fills that which you surrender unto Him. All that He wants is you."
Chapter 10 - "You & I are saved on facts, not on emotion.  Those who live by their emotions waver & vacillate when the winds of controversy blow & the storms of life come. Because they live by their emotions, you will find them up one day & down the next day. 1 day they think theyíre saved & the next day theyíre not sure if they are. You find them steeped in unbelief & every time thereís a new doctrine preached they go for it hook, line & sinker. In the final analysis, they donít know what they believe. But give me a man or a woman who has accepted Jesus Christ on bare facts & it is literally the greatest transaction that a human being can know. That person is saved on facts, facts that he accepts by faith. When that person knows what & why he believes & can point to the Word of God & say, 'It is right here in the Bible,' you will never find that one wavering. He is solid & knows that his salvation is real...(Most) cannot take all that God has for him at once. The experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit is as definite as the new birth experience & this infilling of the Spirit has nothing to do with a personís salvation. Please note that the filling of the Holy Spirit is given for an entirely different purpose than the salvation of the soul. When a person is born again, that person accepts the work that Jesus did for him on the Cross by faith. When (physical) death comes, the soul (mind/emotions/willpower) goes all the way from earth to glory, leaving this old body of clay & the (human) spirit is present with the Lord. This 2nd experience, being filled with the Holy Spirit, has nothing to do with salvation. It is for the purpose of service...I often liken our hearts to a compartment having many separate rooms. At the time of our conversion, we accept that pardon & we open the door of 1 of the rooms of our heart. We say, 'Come in, dear Jesus.'  Then the blood of Jesus Christ, Godís Son, cleanses us from all sin. Conversion is instantaneous, but the Christ-life is a spiritual growth.
You do not receive everything there is as a result of 1 experience. But after you have opened the 1st door to Jesus, you soon find that you are opening the door of another room of your heart, then another.
As you continue to consecrate & walk in the light as Jesus is in the light, there comes a time in this spiritual growth that you look up & literally & honestly say, 'None of self, but all of Thee, Lord.' Finally, after you have surrendered everything to Him, it is then that the Holy Spirit comes in & you experience the baptismof the Holy Spirit...(The) Word of God...literally is the spiritual personís food for growth...There can be no growth until 1st the man himself has been born again. When there is the (101%) surrender to Christ of body, soul & spirit, then that person receives this glorious infilling of the Holy Spirit...'Repent & be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins & ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost' (Acts 2:38)...
Chapter 11 - "He promised, ďYe shall receive powerĒ (Acts 1:8). In other words, Jesus was saying, ďI give you the same power that was manifested in My life on earth, the same power that was manifested in My ministry...
What are you doing in the world today with the Holy Spirit..the greatest gift that was possible for Jesus to give? Thousands of Godís professing children are living defeated, powerless lives...almost bringing a reproach on the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ...What are you doing with this gift...Only those who have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit & have been filled with the Holy Spirit have a true knowledge of the Holy Spirit. It is a communion that is constant...Holy Spirit is not only the mighty Comforter. He also lifts up a standard against your enemy & NOT 1 of Godís children need be defeated on a single score: When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against himĒ (Isaiah 59:19)...You do not fight your own battles. I do not fight my own battles. The Spirit of the Lord, the Holy Ghost, fights our battles for us."
Chapter 13 - "The Bible tells us that there is a sin for which there is no forgiveness.
Itís a sin not against God the Father nor against Jesus Christ the Son, but against the person of the Holy Spirit. That fact makes Him a very important person. A sin committed against God the Father can be forgiven.
Any sin committed against Jesus Christ the Son will be forgiven. But the sin against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven in this world or in the world to come. Thatís how important and sacred He is. (Matthew 12:31-32)...
As long as you are in Godís perfect will, you will know peace, even when the waters are deep & the storms rage. Iíll admit that when you walk by the will of God, there will not always be sunshine. The will of God may not always bring you material prosperity or lead in the paths where it is easy. Sometimes Godís guiding hand will direct you through deep waters.  Sometimes you may feel those waters are about to overflow. The will of God may steer you through dark nights, where you cannot see His face and where you can scarcely hear His voice.
You may feel alone like John on the Isle of Patmos...1 thing I can assure you of: When you are in Godís perfect will, there will be peace (in your soul: emotions/mind/willpower). You will have power & later the glory...
He (God) gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. (Psalm106:9-15) God gave the children of Israel their request, but in granting their request that was NOT His perfect will for them, it brought leanness to their souls.  Their request was only Godís 2nd best for them, His permissive but not His perfect will, for they refused to pay the price for His perfect will.  (In a delimma) what do I do? 1st of all, at the very beginning I seek to get my heart into such a state that it has NO will of its own about a given matter...
We have our likes...our dislikes.
But we can never know Godís perfect will until we get our hearts & minds in such a state that we have NO will of our own in regard to a given matter. I have learned that 9/10 of our troubles are just here: 9/10 of our difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do Godís will whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is...If your decisions are based on feelings or simple impressions or emotions, you will make yourself liable to great delusions...Next?
Seek the will of the Spirit of God through the Word of God, for His will for you will never be contrary to His Word... (Then) surrender yourself to the Spirit, He will present you & your need before the Fatherís throne...
Holy Spirit prays through you. Until you know Godís perfect will, do absolutely nothing.
Make NO decision whatsoever.  Be quiet & let the Holy Spirit intercede for you before the throne of God.
He will not fail you.
Chapter 14 - "Had every person who passed by him given him (the beggar) everything they possessed, it still would NOT have solved his problem, for it was not solely 1 of money but 1 of (physical & emotional) defeat...
Sometimes people who have been long imprisoned, though they think they hate their chains & pray for freedom, really do not have the courage to be free."
Chapter 15 - "How is it possible for me to have a personal fellowship & communion with Holy Spirit...
Holy Spirit is a person. 2nd, let us see that the Holy Spirit is God...You cannot have fellowship with someone who is not a real person to you...Michael, the archangel, did not have sufficient power of himself to argue with Satan. He had to call upon the power of God to defeat Satan in his desire to claim the body of Moses.
If the archangel did not have power to stand against Satan, how can we expect to stand against him?
Satan possesses a supernatural power, a power above that which is possessed by men.
He is an unseen adversary. He does not appear against us in the form of flesh & blood.
The Apostle Paul wrote, 'We wrestle not against flesh & blood' (Ephesians 6-12). If we were wrestling against another human, we would know the weak points of our adversary. But we are wrestling 'against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places'...
(But, it is written in) Isaiah 59:19: 'When the enemy shall come in like a flood [when Satan, your adversary, the devil, comes in like a flood], the (Holy) Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a (superior) standard against him'...
There is a person: Holy Spirit & we need never go down in defeat...
He stands ready to be your defense & strength as well."
Chapter 16 - "There are only 2 forces in the world: the force of evil & of righteousness. 
There is a mighty warfare that has gone on for generationsóthe war between God and Satan. Once I was asked this question when I spoke before some young people: Why did God make the devil? My answer to themwas this, God never made the devil. Let me explain. In Isaiah 14, we see that Lucifer was once 1 of the most beautiful and wisest of all created beings. Angels, as you know, are created beings. Before God ever created man, He created legions of angels. In His creation of angels, He gave 3 angels: Michael, Gabriel & Lucifer greater power than any of the other angels. Lucifer, in the Word of God, is called the Son of the Morning.  He was given a position of authority over 1/3 of all of the angels that God had created. 1 day it became evident that he was jealous (& covetous) of God, of His authority & power & worship. He said, ďI will be like the Most HighĒ (Isaiah 14:14) & he began to ascend into heaven to dethrone God. Thus, the 1st sins of which we have any record are the sins of jealousy & coveting. Then something happened. In wrath, God threw Lucifer to the earth, not taking away from him his power, but leaving him a disembodied spirit...Our adversary, Satan or the devil, is a prince who has authority in his own realm. There is only One who has greater power than Satan & that is God.
Itís no small thing when you contend with the devil. Itís no small thing when you talk about Satan & his power.
In 2 Corinthians 4:4, Satan is referred to as the god of this world or this age. 'In whom the (invisible) god of this world hath blinded the minds of them who believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto (enlighten) them'...Satan does not want you or any human being to believe in God (Who can defeat him). Therefore, he has the power to literally 'blind the minds of them who believe not, lest the light (enlightment/comprehension) of the glorious gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them (giving discernment & revelation)...(Be reminded, later Jesus DID descend into hell to remove the keys for reigning on the earth, but many do NOT realize that now Jesus has all the master keys)...
He (satan) wants you to be religious, but there is a great difference between being religious & a born-again Christian. Itís significant that those who worship Satan do not necessarily become irreligious nor do enemies of religion... Satan does not care if you talk about Jesus...&...look to Jesus as a wonderful example of a mere man &/or the greatest of men that ever lived...But he does care when one accepts the Son of the Living God as his personal Savior. Thatís what makes all the difference...If you knew that he was the deceiver of the truth, then you would be on guard. But 1st satan must blind your mind to the fact that he is the great deceiver, so that you donít recognize the fact of his deception...You & I need the power of God, for only 1 power & 1 person is greater than the(Trojan horse) power of Satan. That power is the power of the Lord Jesus Christ through the person of (the indwelling) Holy Spirit.  You do NOT have to be defeated on a single score if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, for you & I 'are more than conquerors through him [Christ] that loved us'.Ē
Chapter 17 - "What is my full inheritance in Christ Jesus...(Romans 8:37)...Scripture clearly teaches that every human being, from the 1st Adam to the last one who will ever be born in the flesh, was in the beginning predestined in the: mind, plan & heart of God to be His heir & joint-heir with His only begotten Son. In other words, every human being in the mind of God was predestined to be born again. But all human beings are not born-again Christians...Hell was never made for humanity. Hell was made for fallen angels, never for mankind...
Then the day came when I had a choice to make...I exercised my will & chose Jesus as my Savior. I made that choice, not for a day, not for 6 months, but forever...It is Godís will that you be born again. He has predestined that you be born again, but you & I...must make our own choices: to either accept or reject the pardon...
When Jesus died on the Cross & cried, ďIt is finished,Ē a pardon was perfected (& available) for all humanity...
The very minute that you accept that pardon, something happens. We are born again...You cannot describe' anyone else what you spiritually experienced in being: born again or being filled with Holy Spirit.
But each is a definite (spiritual) transaction.  In each moment it is something more than passing from death unto (eternal) life, it is something more than just having our past covered with the blood & more than the forgiveness of oneís sins. Up until that time, God had been our mighty Creator, but AFTER accepting Christ as our Savior, God became our Heavenly Father...Only then are we (immediately) adopted by Him."
Chapter 18 - "That wonderful born-again experience is just the beginning of a new life...
I think that few of us realize our full inheritance as 1 of the Kingís children & that is exactly what we are.
It grieves me that some of Godís children live such defeated lives...Ephesians 1:14...'In Whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance (engagement ring/deposit) until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory'...
That moment when you accept Christ as your Savior, all 3 Persons of the Trinity are active...
At the same time, Holy Spirit places His seal upon the individual, confirming the transaction, the Seal of the Spirit.  'After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise'...
There are times that we feel so independent, so self-sufficient & then in awe of our self-sufficiency we get ourselves into serious trouble. Some of the smartest people I know can get themselves into the most stupid messes because they are using their own wisdom."

Questions - "We have all 3 persons of the Trinity. It was God who gave Jesus the anointing, but it was the power of the Holy Spirit that performed the miracles & did the healing...Ephesians 1:3-14..."

Old Testament Scripture

Exodus 35:30-35 TNAB -
30Moses said to the Israelites, "See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
31& has filled him with a Divine Spirit of Skill, Understanding, & Knowledge in every craft:
32in the production of embroidery, in making thing of gold, silver or brinze,
33in cutting & mounting precious stones, in carving wood, and in every other craft. 
34He has also given both him & Oholiab, son of Alisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others. 
35He has endowed them with skill to execute all types of work: engraving, embroidering, the making of variegated cloth of  violet, purple and scarlet yarn & fine linen thread,  weaving, & all other arts & crafts.
Exodus 36:1 TNAB - 1Bezalel, therefore, will set to work with Oholiab and with all the experts whom the Lord has endowed with skill & understanding in knowing how to execute all the work for the service of the sanctuary, just as the Lord has commanded,"  2Moses then called Bezalel and Oholiab & all the other experts whom the Lord had endowed with skill, men whose hearts moved them to come and take part in the work.
Exodus 38:22-23 TNAB -
22It was Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, who made all that the Lord commanded Moses,
23and he was assisted by Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, who was an engraver, embroiderer, weaver of variegated cloth of  violet, purple & scarlet yarn & of fine linen. (Let us pray for the Divine Spirit of Skill to instruct those we love!  Let us not only ask, but also receive on their behalf, from the heavenly storehouses!  Yes, thank You, thank You, thank You, Holy Trinity.)

New Testament Scripture

1st Corinthians 12:4-11 TNAB - 4There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit;
5there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
6there are different workings but the same God Who produces all of them in everyone. 
7To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. 
8To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit;
9to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit;
10to another mighty deeds; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues.
11One and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as He wishes.

Bentley, Todd - The Reality of the Supernatural World -
Chapter 12 The Transfer of Revelatory Anointing - provides a prayer from Bentley to readers and from readers to God.  The personal prayer contains some of the following, "Father (God) let me see into the...realm You live in...
I want this anointing transferred onto my life...I don't want to wait until I die to see Your lovely face.  I believe." 
Bentley also shares numerous tantalizing testimonies of transferred anointing due to hands being laid on for impartation and activation of our spiritual senses. 
Your spiritual eyes will be opened, because God is personally speaking/tutoring/ mentoring individuals.
Carter, Howard - "founded England's 1st Pentecostal Bible School and helped to establish a major denomination in that country...'The highlight of my entire life probably was the time I spent traveling & in ministry with Howard Carter,' Dr. Lester Sumrall, Pioneers of Faith."

Cho, David Yonggi - The Holy Spirit My Senior Partner - publisher
Subtitle Understanding the Holy Spirit & His Gifts - including author's personal testimony
Introduction.  "The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, 'If you want your church to grow, you must develop a greater communion & fellowship with Me.  Don't preach about the Holy Spirit as an experience only.  He is an awesome person.   Preach about the person.  Develop a communion and fellowship by waiting in My presence after prayer.  I want to talk to you also'...Since my conversion, I would say meeting the Holy Spirit & learning to know Him in an intimate way has been the greatest experience of my life.  My senior partner & I...fellowship every day."

Benny Hinn has a book Good Morning Holy Spirit.  Likewise, David Cho says, "Hello" & "Goodnight" each day to God's Holy Spirit, his senior partner in life & in business.
Chapter 2 WHO Is the Holy Spirit shares that each person of the Trinity (Father God, Jesus Son, Holy Spirit) has its own personality, acting individually as would a human with its own mind, thoughts, voice, emotions, feelings, aspirations, etc.
Chapter 3 NAMES & SYMBOLS of the Holy Spirit - "Each name has to do with a particular office" (function/role/purpose)"
1-"It's by the Spirit of holiness that we can distinguish the spirit that belongs to God from the spirit that belongs to Satan."
2-"It is appropriate that the Holy Spirit be called the Spirit of God, as the spirit is sent by God."
3-"The Spirit of Christ is the same as the Holy Spirit" Who comes when when we are born again & "when we are baptized by the Holy Spirit." (Refer to book for clarification)
"It seems evident that Jesus considered Himself the1st Comforter, because He describes the Holy Spirit, Who would take His place and work in His name, as 'another' Comforter...Although the Holy Spirit is a different person from Jesus, He is the same kind of Comforter, of the same divine nature & with the same purpose as Jesus.  He glorifies the name of Jesus, instead of Himself, & works in the place of Jesus."
Symbols/metaphors also illustrate/illuminate the Holy Spirit's nature/personality/purposes.
The Chinese place great significance upon water, fire & wind.
1-In John 3:5-6 NIV Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water (baptism + God's Word/Jesus Christ) & the (Holy) Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh but the Spirit gives birth to spirit."   Cho explains that we need to continuously drink/consume/thirst after the Holy Spirit. 
Additionally we need the Holy Spirit to expose/shower/wash away our sins.
John 13:8 NIV  Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with Me."
John 15:3 KJV "Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you."
Ephesians 5:26 KJV He might sanctify and cleanse it (the church) with the washing of water by the Word.
2- Matthew 3:11 NIV  "I (John the baptizer) baptize you with water for repentance (spiritual regeneration);
but after me will come One Who is more powerful than I. 
He will baptize you with the (fullness of the) Holy Spirit & with fire (power/ audacity/vitality/boldness)."
3-"Literally translated the Holy Spirit is the 'Holy Wind.'"
1st Samuel 16:13 "Samuel took the horn of oil & anointed him (with oil) in the midst of his brethren.
The Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward." 
"Anointed (things,) places & persons are holy, set apart unto God."
4-James 5:7 "Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord...until he receive the early & latter rain."
"In Palestine farmers expect rain twice during each growing season. 
The 1st rain falls in late autumn & is called the 'early rain'...When springtime returns...the rain falls again...
The Palestinian farmers call this springtime rain the 'latter rain.'"
5-John 1:32 
"John bare record, saying, 'I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove & it abode upon Him.'"
6-Ephesians 5:18 "Be not drunk with wine, wherein its excess, but be filled with the Spirit." 
God's "wine " unusual oldness that causes people to take arrogant, wild, unrestrained actions" for Him.
7-Ephesians 1:13 "After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise." 
"If anyone dares oppose or injure the anointed people of God, that person infringes on the ownership of God & brings God's wrath upon himself."
8-2nd Corinthians 1:22 KJV " God, Who hath also sealed us & given the earnest (down payment/money/surety/guarantee/ security/collateral) of the Spirit in our hearts."
Chapter 9 Gifts of the Holy Spirit
1-revelation gifts  a. wisdom            + b. knowledge                  + c. spirit discernment
2-vocal gifts         a. tongues            + b. tongues interpretation + c. prophecy 
3-power gifts        a. faith (boldness) + b. healing                      + c. miracles
"The Holy Spirit, Who occupies man and fills him, uses that person
and manifests the gifts through him according to His own will, time & situation."
ALWAYS humble oneself "continually before the presence of God," dedicate oneself "as a pure vessel" & lastly "wait for the Holy Spirit to manifest the gifts through" oneself, "at a time & place He chooses." 
"1 thing that makes me tremble with carefulness is the thought that I might resist the Holy Spirit or that when He does move through me to manifest the many gifts to edify His church.
I might be misunderstood to be speaking on my own."  Holy Spirit is easily grieved & will cease operating through those who use His "gifts as if the Holy Spirit were a personal servant." 
"We discern the spirits by the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, judging whether the spirit is from God, or if someone is speaking by the spirit of man, or by the spirit of Satan."
1st John 4:1 KJV
 - Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits (to see) whether they are of God.

Hagin, Kenneth E - Tongues - Beyond the Upper Room
Part 2 Chapter 13 More Scriptural Purposes for Speaking in Other Tongues -
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become a sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal
.  1st Corinthians 13:1
"Paul was saying in essence, 'You have spiritual gifts (from the Holy Spirit), but the (Holy Spirit) gifts are for power, (whereas) the (9) fruit (of the recreated human spirit) is for holiness & character.'"
"Spiritual babes can have spiritual gifts."
Part 3 Chapter 14 Five Common Misconceptions about Speaking in Tongues 
"In 1st Corinthians 12:1-11 he's (Paul is) talking about ministry gifts NOT gifts of the Spirit. 
Ministry gifts are people
who are called to the 5 fold ministry & equipped with the gifts of the Spirit (Ephesians 4:11-12).  For example, an apostle is a ministry gift. 
A prophet is a ministry gift.  Evangelists, pastors, and teachers are ministry gifts" to bless others. 
In 1st Corinthians 12:28 Paul in citing "'miracles, then gifts of healings'
is really referring to the office of the evangelist...Finally Paul mentions another ministry (public) diversities of tongues (using tongues with the gift of interpretation & of knowledge) (not to be confused with speaking in tongues as evidence of the Holy Spirit baptism nor confused with the daily speaking in tongues for personal spiritual purposes)."

Heflin, Ruth Ward - Chapter 16 - Letting the Glory Flow - -
"Get into this move of the Holy Ghost. The enemy will try every way he can to paralyze you so that you cannot be moved by the Spirit. But if you will resist everything that he tries to do, you will be victorious.  Resist him in the name of the Lord.
Say to the enemy, 'I am determined to be moved by the Spirit of God.  You cannot hold me back'...

Every gift of the Spirit should be as speaking in tongues is: totally spontaneous.  God is causing His excellence to come forth in us.  Not only is the cream rising to the top, but you can make butter from it. Normally, all the bad of our lives floats to the top and has to be scooped off, but now it is time for all the good to rise, the excellence of the Spirit to dominate.  Most of us are already flowing in the things of the Spirit, but what God wants is more and more spontaneity.  The great things that God will do in this hour will not require forethought on our part. The wind of the Spirit will come in and we will have to respond to it that very moment, without having prepared ourselves in any way, other than being in the Spirit.  When God gives us a full sentence of what He wants to say through us in prophecy so that we will have courage to stand up and give the rest, self tries to get into the picture & improve on the sentence God is giving us.  God doesnít say things like we might say them on our own. When the spontaneous flow comes, we sometimes donít know what we have said or why we have said it."

Kunneman, Brenda - The Supernatural You - Living from the Well of God's Spirit within You - - Chapter 5 Supernatural Equipment Is in Your House - "The FULL supply of (tools &) equipment you received when you were baptized with the Holy Spirit...are also known as His gifts...of anointing...for other people, but they are also useful for you...Yes, you can prophesy to yourself."

Walters, Kathie - Parenting by the Holy Spirit - booklet - -
Chapter 9 The Gifts of the Spirit - for Parents - "As  the Holy Spirit knows all things, it is very important that we keep tuned in to Him.  The gifts of the spirit are really just manifestations of our 'tuning in.' 
A 'word of knowledge' as mentioned in 1st Corinthians 12 means that Holy Spirit imparts to you His knowledge about someone or a situation that you could not know with the natural mind.

Zadai, Kevin @ - Edited - .The gifts of the Spirit are not yours; they are (loaned/borrowed) gifts.
You give them back.  You turn them in when you get to Heaven. You do not get any credit for using the gifts of the Spirit. You are not a spiritual person because you are using the gifts of the Spirit.
You are a spiritual person because you say NO to ungodliness & worldly passions because you live an upright life in Christ Jesus. You crucify the fles
Reconsider following scripture:matthew/7-22.htm - Not everyone who says to Me, ĎLord, Lord,í will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 
Many will say to Me on that day, ĎLord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? 
Then I will tell them plainly, ĎI never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.í


Carrin, Charles - - January 2011 Newsletter - "The Sign of the Covenant goes far beyond Noah's rainbow, Abraham's circumcision, William Cowper's encouragement, or our struggling against the seeming unfairness of life. In a remarkable way, the Holy Spirit's miraculous gifts to the church are also revealed through their Covenant-purpose and meaning. I Corinthians 12-14. Believers who find themselves powerless and insufficient should be encouraged to know that the gifts of the Spirit are Covenant-provisions which Jesus gladly imparts to all.  We have a beautiful example of this spiritual-gifting in the Old Testament. Specifically: It came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of 10 shekels weight of gold. Genesis 24:22.
Here is an important point: The sign of the Covenant is revealed through the charismatic gifts of the Spirit.
I Corinthians 12
. This truth is seldom seen-but is absolutely magnificent once we grasp it.
We can best understand the principle through a parabolic example in the Old Testament.
t is this: Abraham sent his servant to get a bride for his son Isaac.
The young woman chosen for this honor was Rebekah. In Scriptural typology, Abraham represents God the Father, the servant represents the Holy Spirit, Isaac represents Jesus the Son. Rebekah symbolizes the Church. Her name means 'circles' or 'loops of a rope.' The imagery of the rope suggests her being 'inside the circle' of God's providence and grace. This is a true concept of Covenant. In keeping with the Covenant-tradition, as soon as the servant identified Rebekah as God's chosen one, he presented her with golden 'rings.' Genesis 24:22. The shape of these gifts, circles, conveyed an important message which she understood. They were like binding-loops that encircled her engagement to Isaac...
Hear this point carefully: These bracelets & rings were not wedding gifts. They were 'engagement' gifts.
Even today, brides frequently receive 2 rings, 1 before the wedding; the other at the wedding. So it was with Rebekah. 1st came the engagement gift; these were followed with wedding gifts. In a similar way, Jesus sends 'engagement' gifts to the Church in advance of her receiving the wedding gifts.
The Church's wedding gifts, which are beyond human comprehension, will not be given until the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
. Revelation 19:9. But, please hear me carefully about gifts which come in advance of the Wedding: The charismatic gifts which the Church is now receiving, Acts 1:5,8, by which she 'tastes the powers of the age to come,' Hebrews 6:5, Ephesians 1:21, are engagement gifts. Through them, the Groom is showing the Bride the 'glories of His Father's house.' This parallel of Rebekah & the Church is exact.
While Rebekah's gifts spoke of Isaac's love, they also revealed Abraham's great wealth. In the same way Rebekah had never met the man to whom she was engaged, so the Church has yet to meet her Royal Bridegroom. 
The gifts Jesus is now sending through the Holy Spirit correspond to the rings and bracelets given Rebekah by Abraham's servant...I spoke at a Baptist Church where many members were still opposed to spiritual gifts.
They did not understand the miraculous operations of God & drew back from them. I explained that Christians who reject the gifts of the Spirit, I Corinthians 12:1-11, are actually telling the Heavenly Servant, 'I don't like that bracelet. Put it back in your box.  I won't wear it.' Rebekah's acting in such ugliness is unthinkable.
Not so with modern, self-centered Christians. Many become irate, incensed, at the mere suggestion of their experiencing the Holy Spirit's miraculous gifts. The gift of tongues is the primary offender because it is the only 1 of the grace-gifts that is deliberately designed to attack man's ego and pride. Many in that Baptist congregation saw the ugliness of their having rejected spiritual gifts & came forward, repentant, saying, 'I don't fully understand the Holy Spiritís gifting-but I want whatever bracelet God has for me.
Pray that I will receive it.'  Upon its hem (the robe of the High Priest) you shall make pomegranates ...
and bells of gold: a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell & a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe all around
. Exodus 28:33,34...Finally, it is important that you understand the Covenant-meaning of the golden bells & pomegranates decorating the hem of the High Priests garment. Jesus is the High Priest portrayed in Israel's Tabernacle worship. Hebrews 3:1. The pomegranates and bells on his garment symbolize the fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9, and the gifts of the Spirit. I Corinthians 12:4-11.
As Jesus bears both fruit and gifts, so those who would be like Him must bear the same. Christians who reject any of the gifts are ripping them off the garment of Jesus. Don't do it. When viewed from the bottom, the bell is a perfectly round ring. It is through that circular opening (the gift in operation) that the music of the Spirit is heard. When Scripture says, Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound, Psalm 89:15, it speaks of those who have seen the circle of God's Covenant and rejoiced in the sound ringing from it. 
That ring is as wide as the rainbow or as small as the scar on a man's body...1 of the great hymn writers said, All nature sings and round me rings, the music of the spheres.'  Receive the gifts. Wear the bracelets.
Accept the message of the rainbow. See the revelation of the pomegranates, golden bells, & circumcision.
Its all there."

Cooke, Tracy - 12/14/2020 @ Microsoft Word - Sid Roth 1079 Cooke.docx - Edited Excerpt -
TRACY: The apostle Peter said, "I perceive that God is no respecter of persons"...(God's gifts are) not just for the prophet...apostle or past evangelist teacher. It's (for) the ordinary individual. They is crying out saying, "Lord, can You use...flow through me?" God died...sent His only begotten son for every single one of us. We all have purpose. We are purpose people. The only difference between me & others (is that) they have to accept that purpose, obey the calling. A mandate, mission, mantle falls on your shoulders & you walk it out in obedience...
Any individual hungry for Holy Ghost, who desires spiritual gifts to operate through you, identify what gift is in your ministry or individual life... Realize, we're imperfect channels. The more Holy Spirit uses His gift through us, the more we exercise our faith, because it takes more faith to speak it than it does to see it...
Everybody don't have the same measure of faith, but this end time harvest is not going to be drawn around 1 certain group or...individual, because God is going to get all the glory...all the honor...
Now, if it's the gifts of healing, which is the only gift that's poured out of the 9 gifts, that means it's a progress of recovery. BUT if it's a gift for working of miracles, they have to activate their faith to the place of receiving the miraculous.

Instinct - -
As Christians, born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, our spiritual instincts should always be stronger than our natural instincts.  This instinct distinguishes what we WANT to do from what we OUGHT to do as directed by the Word of God & the Spirit of God within us.  Each of us needs to do whatever is necessary to ensure our spiritual instincts remain sharp & that when we sense God prompting us in a particular direction, we are willing & yielded to do what He requires of us to do irrespective of how we feel."

#189) Kat Kerr - A Place Called Creation Lab Ė from Heaven Invasion Tour - Alive_Again Dec 23, 2012 - -
ď1 of my most favorite (heavenly) places to talk about is Creation Lab.
Thereís a reason why they call it a lab. You know what you do in a laboratory.  What do you do? You experiment. God has plans for you on the new earth. Heís shown me before I was taken to Heaven, Heís shown me through the move of God, through the millennial reign, before He ever took me to Heaven.
Heís shown me ages to come. You actually get to go in this place called Creation Lab. 1 of the things they do in there is, thereís this huge big room, a massive room. Iím sure more things get created. You have to create the door to get in. Donít think youíre not going to use your faith. You might not be using it to be healed, to get your rent paid, or for God to fulfill the vision, but youíll still have to use it, use faith to create, now on this earth. Everything you get is by faith from God...He is moved by the faith of people, & you get to a level where you go from believing (in your head) to having faith (to act on your knowledge). There is a level where you cross over, & you go, ĎIíve been saying it. Iíve been saying it.í You say youíre believing it, but when something happens in here, then your spirit, something clicks & it doesnít matter what anyone says to you, no oneís ever going to steal it from you, youíre in faith. Thatís the difference.  But itís important to declare things, because it builds it
When you declare what God said, thatís still the Word of God. Faith cometh by hearing & hearing by the spoken Word of God. If itís you speaking His Word, itís still building faith.
If you donít having anything else, get the Bible out & start declaring things Heís said about you.
Really. But you have to have faith to create the door to get in Creation Lab, or youíre never getting in there.:
#190) Kat Kerr - Creation Lab from Heaven Invasion II Disc 2 - Alive_Again Dec 23, 2012 -
ď1 of the places in Heaven I went to, itís absolutely amazing. It still actually mystifies me. there is a place in Heaven where you are taught to create, because we are sons and daughters.
Our Father wants us to learn what He does.
We are supposed to be like our Father. So there is a place called Creation Lab. When you go up to this place, there are no entrances to it. You have to use your faith to get in there. So people who thought youíd never have to use your faith again, youíre wrong. I went up there several times.  I couldnít get in. I didnít know what was wrong. I wanted to know if God was mad at me, which was ridiculous. So finally the Holy Spirit said, ĎYou have to just ask.í I asked Him what He meant, He said, ĎJust believe that you can enter into that place.í 
I said, ĎThereís no door!í He said, ĎYou make the doorí. Remember? Itís Creation Lab. So youíre trained before you ever get in there. You have to use your faith. So I just walked up to it the next time, I go, ĎFather, I believe that I can enter into that place.í  A doorway appeared. There were no handles on it. So I had the door, but I still didnít have any way to get in there. I thought, ĎShould I go up there and knock?í  Iím telling you, the angels laugh hysterically at me all of the time. I know they record everything I do, because they show it over for reruns.
So now Iím standing in front of this, Iím like, I believed I could get in, and thereís the door. He said, ĎYou believed you could get in, but you (also) have to believe that you will enter iní So youíre like right there. How many things in our lives does that happen to us? We kind of believe God, but we never take that next step.  You have to USE faith. It blesses the Father. He responds to your faith, not your need. I know that might sound harsh, but He wants you to use faith. He exists.  He wants to help you. So then I walked up to it and said, ĎFather, I believe I can enter in.í  From out of nowhere, that door split down the middle and opened up. 
So now I go to go in! So when I was inside, I didnít know what else to do next
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  1 Corinthians 2:9 Alive_Again,Dec 23, 2012
#191) Kat Kerr - Creation Lab from Divine Encounter II Disc 1 - "The 1st time He took me there, I was so totally blown away, there wasnít even a door to get into the place…Cause youíre going to have to use your faith, not because of battles & trials, but because Heís training you. Because you see, when He speaks, He knows itís going to happen. He will train you even to get into this place. You have to believe that you can enter in.
Thatís what He told me when I 1st saw this beautiful building.  Itís an emerald green building,  itís fantastic. Thereís this light that emanates from it and itís a green color youíve never seen in your life. Green represents life.  I wanted to get in. Iím standing there going. ĎI canít get in Lord!í  He goes, ĎYou have to believe that you can get in!í  So I go up to this wall with no entrance, if He tells me to do something, Iím going to go do it.  
So I stand outside this place. Iím going, ĎI believe I can enter iní, but nothing happens. 
I said, ĎWell, Lord, I tried to enter in.í  He said, ĎNo you didnít, You were just saying something. You have to say it from here.í  So, I stood there and went, ĎI believe I can get into this placeí and a doorway appeared.
I was shocked! I was standing there, I walked right up thinking it was going to open.  I run into it. 
I went, ĎWell thereís the door, but it didnít open.í Youíve got to BELIEVE that you can enter in, not just get in. 
So Iím ready now, I walk up and go, ĎI BELIEVE I can enter in.í It opens all by itself.
So I run in there & donít have any idea what Iím going to do next. Iím trying to look at everything at the same time.

#224) Kat Kerr - The Thing Youíre Most Passionate About @ Jubilee Church Audio Pod cast - Revealing Heaven - - Alive_AgainDec 29, 2012 - ďThe Word says That your gifts are irrevocable & without repentance.
Without repentance means you should know what it is.  Because it is the thing you are the most passionate about. Itís the thing that if you could use & make a living doing it, you would do it. Itís probably your hobby.
Itís what if you have a little money, youíre going to spend it on that thing. How many people know their *gift? 
Iíll tell you what the Father said about the Body, He said, Ď
The world has no problem identifying their childrenís gifts, and being trained and raised up in it and release them in the world, but the Body comes to church and sits on the seat, trying to figure out what their spiritual gift is so they can use it for God.íĒ  Yet theyíd probably be one of the greatest florists ever. Yet they think itís not good enough because itís not a spiritual gift. Yet God didnít make a mistake when He made you. Hair designers.  They have salons in Heaven. Why? Because, guess what? Someone has that gift."  *[Do not confuse with spiritual/supernatural fruit of Holy Spirit (love/peace/compassion/kindness/mercy) or His gifts (teaching/pastoring/etc.
per 1st Corinthians 12:
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,

to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that 1 Spirit,

to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] & to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b]

All these are the work of one & the same Spirit, & he distributes them to each 1, just as he determines. )]
Kat Kerr - Promise Church - Use Your Gift - Alive_Again,May 10, 2013
@ (edited) -
"Every single 1 of us has a gift.  The Word says in Ephesians, 'He gave gifts to men.' Some were the 5-fold, but all the rest of them are what most of us have. I'm not even talking about spiritual gifts. "I have a whole brand new revelation called 'gifted', that means it's who you are.
What is your gift? Stop sitting in church trying to figure out what your spiritual gift is. That gift is so important. People don't even get it. God made you that way for a reason. If He put a gift in you to train horses & do barrel racing, or floristry, or design with different colors, or bake the most yummy stuff...that's your natural gift, because He put it in you before He sent you here.  That's what you're actually supposed to release into the world.  Most believers sit in church every Sunday thinking; waiting for years...for the gift? 
Am I an intercessor?  Am I going to be in hospitality...a pastor? Let me tell you, if you're in the 5-fold ministry, you won't have to try to figure it out. You'll know that you know that you know. You were called to that.
Even they (also) have a natural gift.  God said: 'Even the disciples had a (natural) gift'. Peter, every time I've seen him in Heaven, is fishing in the Crystal Sea. He's still using his gift... He loved it. Half of them were fishermen. They all fish in the Crystal Sea, right now. As you are sitting there, they're up there fishing (because that's their natural gift).  God said, 'I even gave My Son a gift. It was carpentry.' Do you know that Jesus still does build things in Heaven'? You probably have something in your (heavenly) mansion He made for you. Did you ever think of that? Your gifts are irrevocable. They were so important to God, He individually made everybody different, & put a (unique) gift in each of us before He sent us here....He made each of us special. 
I'll give you a clue: Jesus was not poor! He was in a highly skilled profession...very much demand in His city.
You will notice in the Word, how many people said, He was a carpenter.
I promise you, if He was a lousy carpenter, the Bible would have never said
He was a carpenter."

SID: Tell me the encounter you had with the (7) eyes of God.
MYLES: This was 1 of the most powerful encounters, I've ever experienced & during this encounter I was doing a live broadcast...teaching on the 7 spirits of God or more specifically, the 7 eyes of the Holy Spirit.
Many people don't realize or understand that there are 7 eyes in the prophetic realm: 7 eyes of the spirit, which equals perfect perspective or perfect prophecy.
MYLES: I'm teaching.  Suddenly from my right side I feel a wind. 
The spirit of God comes upon & rests down upon me. 
My eyes start burning with intense fire...burning like nothing I'd ever experienced before.
My eyes began to water.
MYLES: The Lord began to speak to me during this manifestation, "
I am imparting the eyes of fire to you, My vision. I'm purifying your vision. You're going to begin to see from My see people with great see them like I see them."
MYLES: (Audience) just receive this...same fire upon your eyes.
Father, I release a supernatural impartation for the eyes of fire (in Your name Father).
Father, I release (the impartation for the eyes of fire) in Your name, Jesus.
Father, I release the impartation for the eyes of fire (in Your name Holy Spirit). 
Receive it right now. Many of you, your eyes, you're going to begin to feel a burning sensation come upon your eyes. MYLES: The Lord is going to begin to manifest that, just receive it right now where you're at. I release that upon you now. God is healing many people's eyes that even in the natural you wear glasses &/or contacts.
You're not going to need them any more. Someone with a detached retina...on your right eye...
God's Holy Spirit is healing right now.
MYLES: There's people that need God to clear blurry vision, maybe cataracts over your eyes.
God's breaking that off now. But His (supernatural spiritual) fire is going to begin to burn. 
You're going to feel the burning sensation come upon your eyes like nothing you've ever experienced before.
But the Lord says, "
I'm imparting the eyes of fire to you now."
Now I release the compassion of God to come upon & fill you (in Your name Father).
I release an impartation for the compassion of Jesus to be released upon you (in Your name, Jesus.)
I release that impartation of the compassion (of the Trinity, in Your name Holy Spirit).
Receive it right now, in Jesus name.9.20.21

Maxwell, John C - Trusting Your Intuitive Instincts - - "Sometimes the 1st step toward trusting your heart is simply acknowledging & letting go of our absolute trust in logic.
Roy Rowan said, 'This feeling, this little whisper from deep inside your brain, may contain far more information, both facts &and impressions, than you're likely to obtain from hours of analysis.'" -
Catholic prayer to the Holy Spirit requesting the 7 gifts.

Walters, Kathie - In Jesus editorial - Kicking the dogs from the door of your Destiny - 8/14/2013 -
"When you acknowledge the gift & calling in someone you cause it to be brought forth & activated.
'That was a great word you gave.'  When you tell someone that, what happens? They are encouraged. 
It makes them want to do that again. If you criticize, then they shut down.

Hinn, Benny - Toronto Training for Ministry - CD set -
8/2006 TV  presentation of Toronto, Canada training for ministry (& impartation/commissioning) -
Excellent teaching on the difference between the Presence & the Power of God.  Hinn explains that God's Presence is/shows His attributes/glory/justice/name/nature/heart, whereas God's Power is/shows His acts. 
It is His presence which changes/converts the heart & not necessarily His power or anointing. 
His anointing comes & goes.  It does not stay overnight (for an extended period).  It is a visitor, not a tenant.  When the Holy Spirit comes ON someone, He visits & brings gifts, but He does not move in. 
 This is the baptism of the Holy Spirit with His 9 gifts.  He gets an earthly job done (to teach, minister, preach, heal, raise the dead, etc.).  These spiritual gifts do not go to heaven with us.  We are not judged on the gift.  Rather, we are judged on the fruit. (For instance, if our boss gives us a car to use to get our job done, we have to return the car when we leave the job.  Our next employer would not rate us on the car, but on our accomplishments.)  However when the Holy Spirit is IN you, He is there permanently.  It is a part of Him, a foretaste, an engagement ring, a betrothal, your salvation, your key to heaven's door, your wedding invitation.

Internet - Holy Spirit Gifts

Brown, Tom - "The High priest wore a robe with pomegranates wrapped around the hem of his garment. In between the pomegranates were bells of pure gold that made noise whenever the priest moved. These bells alternated with the pomegranates. This robe speaks of the Holy Spirit & the pomegranates symbolizes the fruit of the Spirit while the bells represents the gifts of the Spirit.
The priest was to wear both the fruit & the gifts of the Spirit. (see Exodus 39:22-26)." 
(Recognize this when you hear the bells ring during a Catholic mass.)...
Paul...wrote, 'If I speak in tongues [have the gifts] but have not love [the fruit] then I am only a making noise.' He is saying that being a priest means for you to be clothed with both the fruit & gifts of the Spirit
Now what does this have to do with the apparent (scarcity of the visible operation of the Holy Spirit)  disappearance of the gifts of the Spirit from the Church until recently when the gifts were restored at the beginning of the last century...Why did the gifts disappear (seem to be in hibernation) during the 4th century up until the beginning of this century?...
Jesus is our High Priest. He wore the garments of the fruit & gifts of the Spirit...
When Jesus ascended to carry on the work of High Priest, He could be heard through the bells.
In other words, the way Christ makes Himself known is through the gifts of the Spirit
Go back to the foreshadowing of Christí priestly ministry. The Old Testament High Priest would sacrifice the lamb & carry its blood into the temple. The temple contains 2 rooms: 1 was the called the Holy Place & the other was called the Most Holy Place. He would go behind close doors and minister before the Lord in the 1st room.
The only way the people outside knew that everything was all right was by the bells they heard. As long as the bells were heard, they knew the priest was alive & still ministering, However, the scary moment occurred when the priest would enter the 2nd room called the Most Holy Place. This place was a little room behind a very thick curtain. When the priest went into that room, the thick curtain absorbed the sound of the bells, so that the bells could not be heard anymore, even though the priest was alive. Everyone would hold their breath.  'Was the priest still alive and ministering in our behalf before the Lord, or was he dead?'  They all simply waited until he would come out again. After he finished his work the priest would leave the Most Holy Place & be back into the 1st room where the people could hear the bells again. This let them know that the priest was alive & was almost finished his job. It was only a matter of a few minutes before the priest would make his exit from the temple to be seen by the people.  How did the disciples know for sure that Christ was indeed alive at Godís right hand? Simply because they could experience the gifts of the Spirit. The gifts were simply the noise of the bells that Christ made in heaven. This let all the people know that Christ was alive and ministering before the Lord in our behalf.  However, just as the earthly priest went behind the curtain into the Most Holy Place, so also Christ would enter the Most Holy Place where the bells could be heard no more, at least until He was ready to come out from the Temple. So for nearly 1,500 years (4th century to the 18 century) Christí bells (the gifts) could not be heard. So by faith Christians believed that Christ was indeed alive & ministering in our behalf as High Priest, though they had no supernatural manifestations to prove it, except for an occasional miracle.  But something has happened in this century. In 1906, a small group of hungry believers in Azusa, California experienced the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. People around the world flocked to that little mission to receive the baptism of the Spirit, & hundreds of thousands did. Since then, hundreds of millions of believers world-wide have received the baptism in the Spirit with the manifestations of the Spirit. This movement known as "Pentecostalism" & sometimes termed 'charismatic' has been the fastest growing religious movement in the world.  A little more than a century ago, you could not find 10 people who spoke in tongues. Now, you find them all over the place. More & more believers are being baptized in the Holy Spirit than ever before. What is happening?  Could it be that our High Priest, Jesus, has made His exit from the Most Holy Place so that the bells can be heard again? In just a short time, He will make His exit from the Temple to be seen by all. 
I believe this fresh, new outpouring of the Spirit is the final sign of the return of Jesus Christ
The final sign was this: 'And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, & then the end will come.' (Matt 24:14). The last sign is a world-wide, miracle revival. Notice, He said that this gospel would be preached as a (with) 'testimony' or 'witness'. A testimony or witness is proof with undeniable evidence. Jesus said, 'You will be my witnesses when the Holy Spirit comes on you.'
Another way of saying it is, 'You will have supernatural proof that Iím alive when the Holy Spirit comes on you.' The supernatural proof is the gifts of the Spirit (in full demonstration before unbelievers)."
[In other words, many will both witness & experience Godly supernatural miracles, wonders, healings, deliverances, resurrections &/or provisions due to the operation of Jesus in individuals (including children) who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit.]

, Paul L - Yada and the Gift of Discernment - - - "In Hebrew thought, each letter of the alphabet has a meaning, and each letter even has a numerical value...Opinions vary widely on the correct way to transliterate, but the context is always of utmost importance.  Yada is used 944 times in the Bible.
It is a root word used in every stem, & it expresses a multitude of shades of knowledge gained by the senses (see Hebrews 5:14). Its closest synonyms are 'to discern' and 'to recognize'...Strong's concordance includes knowledge at all levels, including the senses. Baker's Evangelical Dictionary states that yada is...'to apprehend & experience reality. Knowledge is not the possession of information but rather, its exercise or actualization'...
Understanding that Yada has to do with knowing through the 5 physical senses (common in the SEER & prophetic gifts)...The Lord desires that we know Him, not only intellectually but also with our physical senses."

@ - In heaven one will use (blossom in) his natural (innate) God given (non spiritual) gifts (areas of one's passion/love).
Kat Kerr Ė Passionate Power / God Gave Gifts to Men / Mantle of Humility @ 2nd Part -
In addition to the 5 fold ministry or spiritual gifts are the innate talents 1st loves we have, where we blossom & are happy to do.  These can bless others as well as ourselves, even God, as He designed us that way. 
Even a person who cleans the bathrooms well & takes pride in that job is a gift to all who use that public facility.
Kerr, Kat - source Christian Churches -
Spiritual gifts are only for the earth.  They are NOT needed in heaven.
The 7 spirits, like the 24 elders, are holy beings that have special functions.

Saint Antony -                                                         
"38. 'It is not fitting to boast at the casting forth of the demons, nor to be uplifted by the healing of diseases: nor is it fitting that he who casts out devils should alone be highly esteemed, while he who casts them not out should be considered nought. But let a man learn the discipline of each one & either imitate, rival, or correct it. For the working of signs is not ours but the Saviour's work: & so He said to His disciples: 'Rejoice not that the demons are subject to you, but that your names are written in the heavens [18].' For the fact that our names are written in heaven is a proof of our virtuous life, but to cast out demons is a favor of the Savior who granted it. Wherefore to those who boasted in signs but not in virtue, and said: 'Lord, in Thy name did we not cast out demons, and in Thy name did many mighty works [19]?' He answered, 'Verily I say unto you, I know you not;' for the Lord knoweth not the ways of the wicked. But we ought always to pray, as I said above, that we may receive the gift of discerning spirits; that, as it is written [20], we may not believe every spirit."
"62. And concerning those who came to him, he often foretold some days or sometimes a month beforehand what was the cause of their coming. For some came only for the sake of seeing him, others through sickness, & others suffering from evil spirits. All thought the labour of the journey neither trouble nor loss.
For each one returned aware that he had received benefit. But though saying such things & beholding such sights, he used to ask that none should wonder at him for this; but should rather marvel at the Lord for having granted to us men to know Him as far as our powers extended."
75 "Why when you make mention of the Cross are you silent about the dead who were raised, the blind who received their sight, the paralytics who were healed, the lepers who were cleansed, the walking upon the sea, & the rest of the signs and wonders, which shew that Christ is no longer a man but God?
To me you seem to do yourselves much injustice and not to have carefully read our Scriptures.
But read & see that the deeds of Christ prove Him to be God come upon earth for the salvation of men."
