There is a tremendous amount of confusion today about the use of the gifts of prophecy, tongues, exorcism, lifting up serpents, and other manifestations of the Spirit. This confusion can leave you searching and frustrated as you acknowledge your own lack of understanding. In your search, have you ever wished that someone would organize the Bible's teaching about matters such as; spiritual gifts, and the qualifications of a prophet in a way that you could better understand it? In THOUGH I SPEAK, Pastor Michael D. McCubbins, Th.D., an internationally known Bible scholar, provides a thorough, biblical study that addresses these issues.
When addressing the disorder that existed in the Corinthian church, the Apostle Paul wrote: "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant" (I Corinthians 12:1). Two millennia later we still need to understand this matter of spiritual gifts and how it relates to being a prophet. As he wrote to the Corinthians in II Corinthians 12:12, Paul defended his own apostleship, saying: "Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds." What were those signs of an apostle?
With this book you will learn:
