Use and Misuse of The Gift of Prophecy
Smith Wigglesworth at the Union Pentecostal Meeting, Nov. 2, 1922.
The Spirit of God Is No Mixture
This morning I believe the Lord will impress us with the necessity of understanding the gifts of the Spirit, why and when, and where, we should manifest them.
I have been trying to impress upon you the importance of being filled with the Holy Ghost, but I do not want you to think that you can understand, or use, gifts apart from the Giver.
I know that the Holy Ghost has nine gifts to minister [1 Co. Ch.12 Ed.], and I know that Jesus has gifts [Eph. 4:7-13 KJV Ed.], and you will never find that the gifts of the Holy Ghost and the gifts of Jesus clash.
They are perfectly in order.
Gifts For The Rebellious
In the fourth chapter of Ephesians, we read that Jesus went up on high, and received gifts for men, and the most remarkable of all is that He received gifts for the rebellious.
[Ed. As prophesied in Ps. 68:18-19 KJV;
Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.]
Paul knew that, because God had been ministering to him gifts, and yet he was the most rebellious of all.
