എന്‍റെ ആശയേ നീ ഒന്നു മാത്രമേ


നിന്നെ സ്നേഹിക്കും നിന്‍റെ ദാസനും

THE NINE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

THE NINE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Revelation Gifts - gifts that reveal something
* Word of Wisdom
* Word of Knowledge
* Discerning of Spirits

Power Gifts - gifts that do something
* Faith
* Healings
* Miracles

Inspiration Gifts - gifts that say something
* Prophecy
* Diverse Tongues
* Interpretation of Tongues

1. THE GIFT OF WISDOM
There are three types of wisdom:
* The wisdom of God (I Corinthians 2:6-7)
* The wisdom of the world (I Corinthians 2:6)
* The wisdom of man (Ecclesiastes 1:16-18)
The gift of the word of wisdom is the application of knowledge that God gives you ( I Corinthians 2:6-7). This type of wisdom is a gift which cannot be gained through study or experience and should by no means try to replace them. The gift of the word of wisdom is seeing life from God's perspective. As a Christian exercises this gift, he begins to develop a fear of the Lord. This is the "beginning of wisdom" according to Proverbs 1:7.
The gift of the word of wisdom is als…

Fruit Of The Spirit

Fruit of the Spirit
"Fruit of the Spirit" is a biblical term that sums up the nine visible attributes of a true Christian life. Using the King James Version of Galatians 5:22-23, these attributes are:love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meeknessandtemperance. We learn from scripture that these are not individual "fruits" from which we pick and choose. Rather, the fruit of the Spirit is one ninefold "fruit" that characterizes all who truly walk in the Holy Spirit. Collectively, these are the fruits that all Christians should be producing in their new lives with Jesus Christ. Fruit of the Spirit - The Nine Biblical Attributes
The fruit of the Spirit is a physical manifestation of a Christian's transformed life. In order to mature as believers, we should study and understand the attributes of the ninefold fruit:

Love- "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God i…

Jehovah Nissi: The Lord Is My Banner

THE LORD IS MY BANNER It was over a great battle in the Old Testament that God revealed himself as Jehovah Nissi, THE LORD IS MY BANNER. It happened at the time when Israel was wandering in the wilderness after miraculously crossing the Red Sea. Amalek was the enemy who came against Israel in Rephidim. In Exodus 17:8-16 Moses called on his young apprentice, Joshua, to lead the Israelites into battle while he stationed himself on top of a hill to pray. He had with him his brother Aaron and his assistant, Hur. As Moses lifted his hands and prayed, the Israelites prevailed in the battle but when he let his hands down, Amalek prevailed. So Aaron and Hur set Moses on a rock and held his hands up for him until the battle was totally won.
At the end of the day there was victory and God told Moses to write down what had happened and read it in Joshua's hearing. God was thinking ahead to the time when Moses would be gone and Joshua would b…

The Prayer of Jabez

The prayer of Jabez is found in a historical note within a genealogy: “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, ‘I gave birth to him in pain.’ Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request” (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).

Little is known of Jabez, other than he was a descendant of Judah, he was an honorable man, and his mother named him “Jabez” (meaning “sorrowful” or “sorrow-maker”) because his had been a painful birth. In his prayer, Jabez cries out to God for protection and blessing. Using a play on words, Jabez, the “man of sorrow,” asks God to keep him from that sorrow which his name both recalled and foreboded.

The prayer of Jabez contains an urgent request for four things: 1) God’s blessing. Jabez acknowledges that the God of Israel is the source of all blessing, and he asks…

Thanksgiving, The Language Of Heaven

A Characteristic of a Christian… Thankfulness should be a characteristic of a Christian. We should“always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”(Eph. 5:20). And“in everything give thanks, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”(1 Thes. 5:18). Thankfulness ought to be genuine and come from the heart. This is in contrast to the godless who“neither glorify Him nor give thanks to Him”(Rom. 1:21). Give Thanks In All Circumstances… In 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Paul tells us to “give thanks in all circumstances, because this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” We should be thankful for material blessings but we shouldn’t put them ahead of the God who bestowed those blessings on us. Our attitude should be to“seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all other things [food, clothing, shelter, ect.] will then be given to you as well”(Matt. 7:33) . Being thankful for good times is easy enough, but Paul tells us to be thankful in “all” cir…

Forgiveness

Forgiveness has received notable consideration as a method of reaching a state of emotional healing by social psychologist in the last few years, and rightly so, for God initiated the concept from the fall of man; God knew that it would take an attitude of forgiving to live in emotional and spiritual freedom. From Joseph forgiving his brothers in Egypt to the forgiving acts of Christ on the cross, this godly concept has been born of the character of God. Forgiving another for wrongs done has been described has having compassion, a ceasing to feel resentment, or a cancellation of debt owed. And, certainly all three definitions apply to the character of God. We learn early in the book of Genesis that God made man in his own image and we learn from Christ in the New Testament that we are to follow after him, using his life as an example for conducting ours. It's no surprise that modern psychology is finding value in Christian forgiveness, because God has always known hum…

The Seven Redemptive Names of God

In his redemptive relation to man, Jehovah has seven compound names which reveal Him as meeting every need of man from his lost state to the end. These compound names are:
Jehovah-Jireh "the Lord will provide" (Genesis 22:13,14).
i.e., will provide a sacrifice
Jehovah-Rapha
"the Lord that healeth" (Exodus 15:26).
That this refers to physical healing the context shows, but the deeper healing of soul malady is implied.Jehovah-Nissi "the Lord our banner" (Exodus 17:8-15).
The name is interpreted by the context. The enemy was Amalek, a type of the flesh, and the conflict that day stands for the conflict of (Galatians 5:17) the war of the Spirit against the flesh. Victory was wholly due to divine help.Jehovah-Shalom "the Lord our peace," or "the Lord send peace" (Judges 6:24).
Almost the whole ministry of Jehovah finds expression and illustration in that chapter. Jehovah hates and judges sin (Genesis 2:1-5). Jehovah loves and saves sinners (Genesis 2…

Agape

Agape is love which is of and from God, whose very nature is love itself. The Apostle John affirms this in 1 John 4:8: “God is love.” God does not merely love; He is love itself. Everything God does flows from His love. But it is important to remember that God’s love is not a sappy, sentimental love such as we often hear portrayed. God loves because that is His nature and the expression of His being. He loves the unlovable and the unlovely (us!), not because we deserve to be loved, but because it is His nature to do so, and He must be true to His nature and character. God’s love is displayed most clearly at the Cross, where Christ died for the unworthy creatures who were “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1), not because we did anything to deserve it, “but God commends His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). The object of agape love never does anything to merit His love. We are the undeserving recipients upon whom He…

HOPE

Trustful expectation, particularly with reference to the fulfillment of God's promises. Biblical hope is the anticipation of a favorable outcome under God's guidance. More specifically, hope is the confidence that what God has done for us in the past guarantees our participation in what God will do in the future. This contrasts to the world's definition of hope as “a feeling that what is wanted will happen.” Understood in this way, hope can denote either a baseless optimism or a vague yearning after an unattainable good. If hope is to be genuine hope, however, it must be founded on something (or someone) which affords reasonable grounds for confidence in its fulfillment. The Bible bases its hope in God and His saving acts. Words for Hope In the Old Testament the words which are most often used to connote “hope” aretigwa(“to look for something with eager expectation”),batach(“to rely on something reliable”), andyachal(“trust”). In the New Testament “hope” is the proper tra…

Faith

Faith is the simplest of all things, and perhaps because of its simplicity it is the more difficult to explain. What is faith? It is made up of three things—knowledge, belief, and trust.
KNOWLEDGE…
Knowledge comes first. “How shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?” (Romans 10:14). I want to be informed of a fact before I can possibly believe it. “Faith comes by hearing” (Romans 10:17); we must first hear, in order that we may know what is to be believed. “Those who know your name will trust in you” (Psalm 9:10)
A measure of knowledge is essential to faith; hence the importance of getting knowledge. “Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live” (Isaiah 55:3). Such was the word of the ancient prophet, and it is the word of the gospel still.
Search the Scriptures and learn what the Holy Spirit teaches concerning Christ and His salvation. Seek to know God: “For he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that dilige…
