1 Timothy 4:14, Your Ministry and Gifts of the Spirit Are Given by the Laying on of Hands of the Presbytery

 

When you are born again, you are not born with these gifts of the Spirit.  There may be things in your Christian walk that would indicate your future ministry and the gifts that God would like to impart to you through the laying on of hands and the prophesy of the presbytery.  (A presbytery is a gathering of elders who are called by God for this purpose.)  You may have natural gifts that God will use.  But the Spiritual gifts are different from natural gifts. They are the weapons of our warfare.

1Timothy 4:14-15 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.  Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.

Paul was part of the presbytery that prayed and prophesied over Timothy, imparting spiritual gifts to equip him for his ministry:  

     
  • 1 Timothy 1:18-19 "This charge I commit to thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:"
     
  • 1 Timothy 4:14-16 "Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all. Take heed to thyself, and to the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee."
     
  • 2 Timothy 1:6-8 "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;"  

Here is a related verse:

Romans 1:11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

Here is another:  

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

Here is another:

Let God be true and every man a liar.

Apostles are given the responsibility of protecting the entire flock of God from the attack of the enemy, but with so many voices in the world, each one claiming to be the one that should be listened to, how can you know?  You are responsible to be close enough to God so that you can tell the difference between false apostles and real apostles.

Read the complete definition of "Apostle."  

God restored the gifts of the Spirit and apostles & prophets to the church since 1948.  Counterfeits and false gifts abound, but the real is still real.
