Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 6 - Evening

"What then shall we say, brothers and sisters?
When you come together, each of you has a hymn,
or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up…For you can all prophesy
in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.  The spirits of prophets are subject
to the control of prophets.  For God is not a God
of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations
of the Lord’s people."

- First Corinthians 14:26, 31-33

Controlling Your Gift    

In First Corinthians 14 Paul describes the organization and the purpose of the church meeting together.

The focus of the believers meeting together and sharing their gifts with the church is “so that
everyone may be instructed and encouraged.” The first of two reasons the church meets is for “instruction” (manthanōsin) which means “learning key facts” and “gaining fact-knowledge.”
The word is related to mathetes, or “disciple,” and can refer to someone who learns from
experience and reflection. The second reason Paul gives for the church meeting together is
to be “encouraged” (parakalōntai) which means “exhort,” “admonish,” “comfort,” “encourage,”
and “console.”

The manifestation of the gifts can be expected to be organized, without chaos
and balanced without self-exaltation is because, “The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.” There is never a time when the Holy Spirit is manifesting through a person that the
person loses control. The gifts are manifestations of the Holy Spirit, not demon possession.
If it were appropriate for a prophet to lose control of his own gift, then it would not be possible
for Paul to require an orderly gathering of the church, since there would always be the possibility
that the Holy Spirit might cause someone to lose control of their gift.

Instead, the church was to gather in an orderly fashion with the Holy Spirit manifesting through
believers for the purpose of instructing and encouraging the servants of God.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"The gospel of Satan announces salvation by character, which reverses the order of God's Word - character by, as the fruit of, salvation.
- A. W. Pink
Something to Ponder??

It would appear that Christianity is going to become more important in
the USA during our day, because the Middle East
and other countries believe that we are a Christian nation since 86% of Americans identify themselves as Christian and every U.S. president in the 1900’s professed a Christian faith.
