The 9 Gifts Compared to the 9 Fruits
So many today seek the Gifts without first
acquiring the Fruit in their life. We must have the Fruit of the Spirit at work, if we want
God to entrust us with the Gifts of the Spirit.
Gifts of the Spirit
1 Corinthians 12
Fruits of the Spirit
- Word of Wisdom
- Word of Knowledge
- Working of Miracles
- Discerning of Spirits
- Different Kinds of Tongues
- Interpretation of Tongues
- Self Control
- The Word of Wisdom supernaturally discloses the mind, purpose, and the way of God
as applied to a specific situation. If we have the Wisdom of God, then we must have
Love, for God is Love. If you search for the first gift of the Spirit, you
must possess the first fruit of the Spirit.
- The Word of Knowledge is a supernatural revelation of information about a
specific thing and has to do with an immediate need. Jesus gave instruction to His
disciples so His Joy would remain in them and be full. A Word of Knowledge
will always be received with Joy from His disciples, so we must first strive to
have the fruit of Joy in our lives.
- Faith is a special outpouring of supernatural Faith for release of a miracle.
Even a small amount of Faith in our Father will bring Peace into our lives.
If we have the Peace that passes all understanding then we will be ready for the
Gift of Faith when the need arises. So seek first to have the fruit of the Spirit:
- Healings are those Healings that God performs supernaturally. If we are Longsuffering,
then we have learned to be content in any situation as Paul was. He learned that in his
weakness, Jesus strength was made perfect. So if we can learn to be Longsuffering
in all, then we will be able to accept the supernatural Healing God has for us.
Faith produces miracles, but miracles do not necessarily produce faith, unless we know how
to rejoice in any situation. That we do not look for the Healing, but for the
relationship with God that will bring about the Healing.
- Working of Miracles is a manifestation of Divine power to perform something that
could not be done naturally. Jesus performed many Miracles because He had
compassion on the crowds and acted with Kindness. Without the Fruit of Kindness,
we would not be able to use the Gift how God would want us to.
- Prophecy is a supernatural disclosure, a sudden Spirit inspired insight that brings
exhortation to the body of Christ. Goodness means to have decency, generosity,
righteousness. To exhort and edify the body of Christ we must first possess the virtues
and values which are synonymous with Goodness.
- Discerning of Spirits is to detect the true spirit behind the acts and
manifestations taking place around us. It is used to further build Faithfulness on
our Lord and Savior. The fruit of Faithfulness is the foundation for being true
only to our Lord, and the acts of the Holy Spirit. We may then seek the gift of Discerning
of Spirits to further our perception of the workings of the true Spirit of God.
- Different kinds of Tongues is praying or singing in a supernatural or heavenly
language which has a specific message associated with it. James tells us about the things
from above, that they are pure, peaceful, and Gentle. How can we seek the Gift
which will deliver a message to Gods people if we first do not seek fruit of His
- Interpretation of tongues is translating the message of tongues so that the heavenly
message may be given. Would you trust someone translating for you that put their own
thoughts and words into your message. You would want someone of great Self Control to
be true and accurate. How much more would our Father want someone of Self Control
to translate His holy message to His people.
