The Gifts Of Revelation

***These are the spirituals who reveal something

-discernment of spirits…word of wisdom…..word of knowledge


***This spiritual is the supernatural ability to see the presence or activity of a spirit whether good or bad, demonic or a human being.  It allows you to see into the spirit world.

-the Holy Spirit gives these spirituals – 1 Cor 12:11

There are 4 main areas where this spiritual is used…………

(1) Discernment of spirits allows you to discern the spirit of a person – John 2:23-25

-it is not criticism, the ability to see faults in people.  It is not wisdom..

-it helps you see the attitude and deception of people

(2) Discernment of spirits makes you aware of angelic deception – 2 Cor 11:3-4,14-15

Rev 12:3-4,9 – one third of the angels fell with Satan – these are demons…….

angels can speak and can say God things or evil things…….

-is it the move of the Holy Spirit or a counterfeit……Matt 7:15-23 & Acts 16:16-18

(4) Discernment of spirits allows us to know if a demonic power is present – Eph 6:10-18
