By the grace of God I am what I am:
1 Cor. 15:10a
In 2 Corinthians 4:2 we read about Paul, Silas, and Timothy not handling the Word of Truth deceitfully. Their lives, their conduct was a manifestation of the Truth.
When a person makes a thing manifest that person is making known the unseen or the invisible. The Truth is frequently hidden due to traditions, deliberate lies, the ever changing morals of a culture, and even our doctrinal proclamations.
Christianity has far too often replaced the Word of Truth with men of truth. There has only been one man who could honestly say, "I am the Truth." That man was Jesus Christ. For he always did the will of God.
Making any other man the standard for Truth will only provide believers with two outcomes. First, you will enter into idolatry as you put a man above God. Second, you will be greatly disappointed and heart broken as every man will fail at some point. The only man who never failed was Jesus Christ.
Many men, Bible Scholars of reputation and integrity, have declared that the manifestation of the spirit ended in the first century. Their logic appears to be very simple, we don't see these things any more and thus, they must have ended now that we have the Bible.
Does God still give His gift of holy spirit? Then why would the manifestation of that gift have been taken away? It is like saying, "I am giving you this beautiful gown or a brand new tuxedo. However, you are never allowed to wear these clothes."
Why would God give a gift that could not be used?
Welcome and God Bless You
If God's gift of holy spirit is still available today, then the manifestation of that gift is also still available.
The believers choice is to believe the words of God or the lies and half-truths of men.
Growth from within...without compulsion
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
