The manifestation of the Spirit

1Co 12:7  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every person for profit.

1Co 12:11  But in all these works that one and same Spirit, dividing to every person individually as he will.

When we read this chapter it’s apparent that church is supposed to consist of manifestations of the Spirit, as He wills. That’s what a NT church is, period. When we have gathered in Jesus name and these verses are fulfilled, that is, there are manifestations of the Spirit thru various saints, to edification, then we can say that we’ve had church.

Did the Holy Spirit manifest thru the brethren present? If so, you had church.

Where man’s tradition and control suppresses and even bans the manifestations of the Spirit thru whom He wills, then it’s not a NT church, yet. Bcos it is to challenge Jesus’ headship over His church, and to reject His rule over His people. That’s what it means to suppress the gifts of the Spirit in all the brethren.

    It’s wonderful to think that the Holy Spirit manifests in us!

    And, that true spiritual giftings and workings ARE manifestations of the Spirit!

    If there’s any edification in Christ which flows from us to others, then it is a manifestation of the Spirit. That is too wonderful.

    This may be new to some – the thought that everything that the church is, is supposed to consist of manifestations of the Spirit thru many believers.

    If anything is profitable, it is bcos of the manifestation of the Spirit in someone.
