Two people in your church community have been debating each other as others listen in. One has been saying that gifts like prophecy, healing, tongues, and other such gifts are no longer operative, but ceased with age of the apostles and the completion of the New Testament. The second person is saying that all those gifts are operative for today! This person also goes on to say that the first person’s problem is that he is a believer but not yet “baptized with the Spirit.” The debate has heated up. How will you handle this?
A woman in your church with an ongoing physical infirmity was recently prayed for by a couple known to be “prayer warriors” in your church however, this woman didn’t experience healing. She comes to you and is clearly discouraged and confused because those who prayed over her said that in Jesus she is already healed but she needs to believe it to experience it. What will you do, say, or what guidance will you give this woman with the physical infirmity? How would speak to the “prayer warriors”?
