Bring It On-Line: Gifts of the Holy Spirit

I gave my life to Christ six years ago, but I have been longing for the spiritual gifts to start manifesting in me. I have noticed the gift of Word of Knowledge is working at The 700 Club. Is there anything you folks do to make this happen? ... ... Read Transcript


Terry: TIME FOR YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, SO "BRING

IT ON."

THIS IS ROBIN, WHO SAYS, HOW

DO YOU EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENS

IN THESSALONIANS, IF YOU SAY

THERE IS NO RAPTURE UNTIL

AFTER THE TRIBULATION.

I'VE BEEN TAUGHT THAT IT

HAPPENS BEFORE THE LAST

SEVEN YEARS.

IF WE HAVE TO ENDURE THEç

SAME JUDGMENTS ASç THE

UNSAVED DO, WHAT SENSE DO

THAT MAKE?"

Pat: I'M SORRY, BUT IF

YOU READ THESSALONIANS, I

WANT TO SAY, HERE IS WHAT IT

SAYS.

WE WHO ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN

UNTIL THE COMING OF THE LORD

SHALL NOT GO AHEAD OF THOSE

WHO ARE DEAD.

THE LORD WILL SHOUT THE

VOICE OF THE ARCH ANGEL WITH

A TRUMP OF GODç ANDç THE DEAD

WILL RISE FIRST.

THAT'S THE RAPTURE, DOES IT

SOUND LIKE A QUIET SLIPPING

AWAY?

TRUMPETS, SHOUTS.

I SAID THER READ THAT AND

SAID THERE IS NOTHING QUIET

ABOUT THAT.

Terry: AND THERE HAVE

BEEN MANY CHRISTIANS OVER

THE YEARS WHO HAVE SUFFERED

SEVERE TRIBULATIONS.

Pat: THE WHOLE CHURCH

IN CHINA WAS DECIMATED

BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN

TAUGHT BEFORE THE LORD

RAPTURED.

THEY WENT THROUGH THE

COMMUNIST PERSECUTION, AND

THEY SAID THE BIBLE ISN'T

TRUE.

AND GOD DIDN'T RAPTURE US,

AND THEREFORE WE'RE GOING TO

LEAVE THE FAITH.

LISTEN, THE BIBLE DOESN'T

SAY THAT HE THAT ENDURES TO

THE END SHALL BE SAVED.

YOU MAKE UP YOUR OWN DESIRE

OF WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT

AND WHAT IS WRONG.

BUT THE LORD SAID WHAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN.

HE SAID IMMEDIATELY AFTER

THE TRIBULATION OF THOSEç

DAYS, YOU'LLç SEE THE SON OF

MAN IN HEAVEN.

READ MATTHEW 24.

WE DON'T MAKE THIS STUFF

UP.

GOD TELLS US WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

AND WE WILL BE LIFTED UP TO

BE WITH HIM WHEN HE COMES

BACK AGAIN.

AND THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT

IS.

AND I'M SORRY THIS OTHER

STUFF -- I'M GOING TO SAY IT

AS CLEARLY AS I CAN, IT IS

HARASSY.

IT WAS NEVER TAUGHT IN THEç

CHURCHç UNTIL THE IRVINGITES,

AND THE 17-YEAR-OLD GIRLS

STARTED BRINGING THIS

PROPHECY, SPEAKING AND

TONGUES.

UP UNTIL THAT TIME, THE

CHURCH KNEW NOTHING ABOUT

THE DOUBLE RAPTURE STUFF.

IT JUST ISN'T THERE.

Terry: THIS IS LONGI

FROM SOUTH AFRICA, WHO SAYS,

"WHEN ONE IS GIVEN THE WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE WITH

OTHER, WHEN WILL ITç4Z59%

IF FOR INSTANCE IT

IS NOT

FOR HEALING,

BUT

FOR

SOMETHING LIKE RELATIONSHIP

RESTORATION DOES IT TAKE

DAYS OR WEEKS, OR IS IT

GOING TO MANIFEST IN GOD'S

TIME?

AND WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT US

TO DO ONCE WE RECEIVE THE

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE FROM HIM?

DO WE ACT OUT IN FAITH OR DO

WE WAIT?"

Pat: ALL OF THE ABOVE.

PRAISE GOD.

THANK HIM.

THE WORDç OFç KNOWLEDGE, I

RECEIVE IT.

THANK YOU, LORD.

HE HAS HEALED MY BODY, HE IS

GOING TO BRING MY MARRIAGE

TOGETHER.

Terry: YOU WATCH FOR

IT.

Pat: HOW LONG DOES IT

TAKE PLACE?

IT MAY BE INSTANTLY.

IT MAY BE A MONTH OR YEARS.

THE PROMISES IN THE BIBLE,

HOW LONG DID THEY TAKE?

A DAY WITH THE LORD IS A

THOUSAND YEARS.

IF GOD SAYS IT, IT WILL

HAPPEN.

Terry: THIS IS JAKE WHO

SAID,ç "Iç GAVE MY LIFE TO

CHRIST SIX YEARS AGO.

I'VE NOTICED THE GIFT OF

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE IS WORKING

AT "THE 700 CLUB."

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU FOLKS

DO TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN?

I DON'T KNOW BY I'M NOT

SEEING THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT IN MY LIFE."

Pat: THE BIBLE

SAYS, "THEY SPOKE AS THE

SPIRIT GAVE UTTERANCE."

THE SPIRIT GIVES THE

UTTERANCE ANDç THEYç SPEAK.

THOSE OF YOU WHO PRO

PROPHESY, YOU REACH OUT AND

PROTECTIVE IN THE PRESENCE

OF GOD.

REALIZE YOU COULD BE

MISTAKEN.

WE SEE THROUGH A DARK

GLASS.

I AM VERY SCARED OF THESE

PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS THINK

THEY'VE GOT A WORD OF GOD,

AND THEY'VE HEARD FROM THE

THRONE RIGHT NOW.

WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS

DARKLY, ANDç IF YOUç APPROACH

THE GIFTS OF GOD WITH

HUMILITY, THE LORD WILL WORK

THEM OUT IN YOUR LIFE.

BUT HOW DO YOU DO IT?

HOW DO WE FIRST HAVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE?

WE WERE LISTENING, AND WE

WERE PRAYING, AND GOD SPOKE

TO US, AND WE SPOKE IT OUT.

AND SOMETHING HAPPENED.

THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS.

AND SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T

HAPPEN.

Terry: SO YOU WALK WITH

THE LORD AS CLOSELY AS YOU

CAN.

Pat: YOU WALK BYç FAITH

ANDç NOT BY SIGHT.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR "BRING

IT ON."
