  • Me
  • All Spiritual Gifts are given by the Holy Spirit to the Church as He sees where they are needed. When your saved you are given at least one of these gifts, but that doesn’t mean we are restricted to just one. For instance most people who have the gift of Pastor and usually also have the gift of teaching.
  • One last point about the office of Apostle, it has certain qualifications. Apostles have all the Spiritual Gifts and they had personal contact with Jesus. Like Paul the last apostle who after he was saved went to Arabia and studied there, and of course on the road to Damascus. That is the reason I think the office of Apostle is no longer valid.
  • But keep in mind that I don’t have the decision making power about it. So, as with all gifts, the Holy Spirit is the one who decides.
  • Modern Apostles?
  • How does God distribute spiritual gifts?”
