Gifts of the Spirit

Gifts of the Spirit
Name: Patti
Add a little more detail (optional): I took awayther persons migranes through spiritual healing now I have them. How do I avoid this from happening to me? Also I have had this gift since birth as well as a few others of the gifts of the spirit only recently learning what it was and how it is supposed to be used for others not yourself.I want to use these abilities effectively without taking on others ailments.


Ma'am, the bible condemns such.  Unless you were giving them ginger-ale and praying for them you're doing scorcery and such which is a big no no with God.


Why don't you join the forum and share your testimony with us?  We'd love to have you.

I am not sure I understand fully what you are saying.  If you believe the Bible, you do not pick specific parts to believe or not believe saying they are not for today.  If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, so is His word.  It plainly says we can lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.  But if we are going to do that we need to be spiritually prepared to do it.  Meaning we need to be prayed up, not holding on to anything (resentment, bitterness, anger, etc.), knowledgeable of His word and believe that we shall receive what we are praying for.  It is not up to man to pick and choose what parts of the Bible to believe or use today.  It is God's word and it will remain His word.
