The BIBLE says
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one
for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of
wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of
knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by
the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same
Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another
prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another
different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation
of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these
things, distributing to each one individually as He
wills” (1 Cor 7-11).
The BIBLE says cont...
• 1 Peter 4:10
