        (12/13/2000) will the gifts cease?
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: will the gifts cease?

Some people say that the gifts of the Holy Spirit no
longer exist because they have ceased. The scripture
reference for this is as follows:

[1 Corinthians 13:8-10]
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be
prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues,
they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall
vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that
which is in part shall be done away.

If we look at this scripture in context and look at
the next few verses, we will find out when the gifts
will cease.

[1 Corinthians 13:11-12]
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I
understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when
I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then
face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I
know even as also I am known.

The gifts will only cease when we see God face to
face, when we will no longer only know in part, but
God will reveal things to us freely. When that time
comes, we don't need tongues or prophecies or healing
anymore because we no longer see through a glass and
God will show us all things, we will know even as we
are known. Until that time comes, God has given us His
gifts so that we can minister strength, encouragement,
healing to others, so we can live as powerful
ministers for His kingdom.

trouble with her personal relationship with God. Her
faith waivers when things are not going good & wonders
why God is singling her out. Pray that her faith will
grow strong.

iv. breaking down of my family -- guest
I cannot profess that I am the most faithful person. I
am a firm believer in prayer. I have the foundation,
but lack the structure needed to be strong. My family
needs prayer. I feel my children slipping from the
safety of family & turning to others less caring. My
13yr old daughter has become defiant at school & home.
Pray I take the right avenues to strengthen my family
& comfort my children.

v. prayer for positive outcome -- guest
I am applying for a promotion, it has been three years
since I have had a raise. I am really suffering right
now, I am in need of some serious dental work. I also
need to see a doctor about my physical health.
However, I do not have medical or dental coverage. If
I get this promotion, I will be able to get the
medical & dental attention I so desperately need. I
have been medicating myself for too long for the pain.
I am suffering some emotional problems, crying easily
& I am always tired. I need a breakthrough,
spiritually, emotionally, physically.
