“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  • How were they given?

    • Direct laying on of the apostles’ hands

      “Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given…” {Acts 8:17,18}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  • How were they given?

    • Direct laying on of the apostles’ hands

      “And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.” {Acts 19:6}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  • How were they given?

    • Direct laying on of the apostles’ hands

      “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established.” {Romans 1:11}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  • How were they given?

  • What was their purpose?

    • To cause people to have faith in Christ

      “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” {1 Corinthians 2:4,5}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  • How were they given?

  • What was their purpose?

    • To edify the church

      “Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel... How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.” {1 Corinthians 14:12,26}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • Miraculous gifts will cease.

  • There will be a time when they will:

    • Fail

    • Cease

    • Vanish

      “Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.” {1 Corinthians 13:8}


“When That Which Is Perfect Has Come”

  • When that which is perfect has come…

    • “For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” {1 Corinthians 13:9,10}

      “Perfect” (teleios)—that which grows to completeness or wholeness.
