Today, let us talk about our gifts. The gifts that have been denied from us. The gifts that put us to mental institutions, usage of “medicines”, condemnations, judgements, mockeries, abandonment, betrayal, victimised, wounded and so much more. In other eras, we had been prosecuted for having these gifts.
In the past years, during my searching for the truth, I always wondered why the so-called religious people would kill humans or influence the people of power to kill those of different beliefs with gifts. Many of those prosecuted had lost faith in religion and in God because it was mentioned in the Old Testament that God is a jealous and angry God.
Then, I was shown that it was gaining “power” to control more humans that led them to kill those innocents.
Even in this modern age, many are still possessed by the old “power” paradigm to put pressure on those Children of God or Children of the Light. We are these children. It is unfortunate how people tend to belief what others preach without checking within their hearts. Of course, it may not be possible for the people to listen to their hearts as they have closed their hearts during the course of their incarnation here on Earth.
As I refer to my old bible again, I found the letter by Saint Paul to the people of Corinthians where he mentioned a few times about speaking in tongues, one of the few gifts that Spirit has given us. I can only guess that many of our fellow Christians haven’t even read their big book when they judge us.
Now, let’s dive in.
I won’t explain further about what’s written but will share with you two versions of the Christian bibles so that you can feel every verse in your heart. You know that you have at least one of these gifts.
The gifts according to St. Paul (formerly known as Saul) in his letter to the Corinthians. You can refer to 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 in the New Testament. Here’s a copy from the NIV version.
“4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
“7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.
11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”
Here’s the version from the bible I bought in Sienna, Rome, in 2000 – 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 (My Christian Community Bible, Catholic Edition).
“4 There is diversity of gifts, but the Spirit is the same. 5 There is diversity of ministries, but the Lord is the same. 6 There is diversity of works, but the same God works in all.
“7 The Spirit reveals his presence in each one with a gift that is also a service. 8 One is to speak with wisdom, through the Spirit. Another teaches according to the same Spirit. 9 To another is given faith, in which the Spirit acts; to another the gift of healing, and it is the same Spirit. 10 Another works miracles, another is a prophet, another recognizes what comes from the good or evil spirit; another speaks in tongues, and still another interprets what has been said in tongues.
11 And all of this is the work of the one and only Spirit, who gives to each one as he so desires.”
