Section 5: About the forgotten gifts of the Holy Spirit
«As every man has received the gift,
even so minister the same one to another … », 1Pet. 4:10.
Presently to fulfill these words of Apostle Peter, i.e. to serve for others by received from the God gift, completely not simply. As is known from the Scripture, the Lord gave gifts unto men, Eph.4:8. The Lord Himself has put some, prophets; and some, pastors and teachers, Eph.4:11. The Lord divides the gifts to EVERY MAN SEVERALLY as he will, 1Cor.12:11. However for today in some communities other practice is accepted absolutely. So, gifts of the teacher and the pastor recognize only at those who has been put forward to this position by higher ministers and has received from them the recommendation. The list of gifts - see 1Cor.12:8, also is deformed to unrecognizability.
So, you can go round all communities of the country, but anywhere will not meet any believer about whom to you would tell, that he has gift of THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, 1Cor.12:8. The same it is possible to tell and about gift of the word of wisdom. However, the people having this gift are available, but anybody openly these gifts after them does not recognize. In the Gospel of St. Mark, 13:34 it is readable: “For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and TO EVERY MAN HIS WORK …” These words mean, that each of servants of the Lord should fulfill charged to him by the Lord work, and besides irrespective of, this work by associates acclaim or not; this matter is pleasant to them or not. Certainly, only the believer knows what work is entrusted to him by the Lord. Other believers (including ministers) can know nothing about his gift and work, unless only this believer will want to open it to them, 1Cor.2:11.
