THE GIFTS

 

This is the First message of a series of Six on the topic of “GIFTS” from the book of 1 Corinthians Chapters 12, 13 and 14.  This month’s message is “Diversity of the Gifts”. This is the day, the time and the hour to hear and receive the very Word of God and believe it and stand upon the Word of God.

 

As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Paul the Apostle in the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 12  referring to Diversity of the Gifts; “WILL WE OPEN OUR EARS TO HEAR WHAT SAYS THE WORD OF GOD?”  “OR WILL WE CHOSE TO KEEP OUR EARS AND HEART CLOSED TO GOD” IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
