But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit. —1 Corinthians 12:7

The professional ministry does not want the gifts today. Christians are baptized with the Holy Ghost that the whole body may be edified.

The working of the Holy Ghost is the visible sign of the presence of Jesus. They went from Jerusalem to preach the gospel, and the Lord was with them. I love that word. He is in heaven—but He is also with us.

The Lord was with them, confirming the Word. How? With signs and wonders following. Wherever they went they saw faces shine, someone healed, someone speaking in tongues. This you see and hear—it is the Holy Ghost—and it is for the work of the ministry. We do not need professional ministers. Everyone filled with the Holy Ghost can minister in the gifts.

I have tested the truth; I know it is of God. How can we help talking of the things we have seen? I have seen things by the Spirit, and in visions. I have seen Jesus; the heavens open; the marriage supper; hosts of angels; the glory of God. I have seen them, glory to God! I know what I am telling you. I know Jesus lives and is standing by my side more truly than I know you are here. These things are verities.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ. Glory to God! When a weak woman comes here to tell you what strong men in the ministry ought to have told you, what are you going to think about it? I say these things are true; and when people say they are foolishness and fanaticism, dare they attempt to prove it by the Word? I dare them to do it.

God, give me boldness to minister with the
Spirit's gifts, no matter what. Amen.
