There are 9 Spiritual Gifts shared in 1 Corinthians 12

(1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
#9 Interpretation of Tongues
Now let's give examples of each one according to scripture.
Word of Wisdom is the ability to see a future event in someone's life.
Word of Knowledge is the ability to see a current event in someone's life.
In John 4 Jesus was able to know the Samaritan women's current situation about your husband and husbands... this was a word of knowledge on her life.
In Acts 5:1-11 we see Peter know the situation in Ananias & Sapphira... which he later states 'you have not lied to men, but the Holy Spirit.
4 While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” 5 Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. (Acts 5:4-5)
There's measures of faith but also a gift that allows God to move.
The bible says that because of 'their' faith, a man was healed. Something about people's faith that allows God to move in a supernatural way.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” (Mark 2:5)
Jesus let the centurion's servant be healed because He saw he had great faith.
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! (Matthew 8:10)
7 In that region there was an estate of the leading citizen of the island, whose name was Publius, who received us and entertained us courteously for three days. 8 And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him. 9 So when this was done, the rest of those on the island who had diseases also came and were healed. 10 They also honored us in many ways; and when we departed, they provided such things as were necessary. (Acts 28:7-10)
We see Apostle Paul healing the father of Publius and the rest of the island that had diseases.
Healing is a gift of the spirit.. but ONLY given by the Holy Spirit.
All prophecy leads back to the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Theres Prophets that operate in the office.
& there is ways to operate in the prophetic.
The word of knowledge & word of wisdom are examples of operating in the prophetic.
16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. 17 This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” 18 And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. (Acts 16:16-18)
We must know how to handle these spirits which is why discernment is needed!
Tongues & Interpretation of Tongues
3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2:3-4)
Theres several teachings on tongues & interpretation of tongues that allow the body of Christ to divide.
Understanding the difference between praying in tongues, preaching in tongues, & speaking in tongues... will set a lot of us free.
