Manifestations of the Spirit, The 5 Fold Ministries, Motivational gifts

Posted: March 27, 2012 in Other Teachings, The 5 fold Ministries



PAUL’S HEART OF TEACHING THESE REVELATIONS: Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. (1Corinthians 12:1). Follow the way of love and eagerly desire Spiritual Gifts, especially the gifts of prophecy – (1 Corinthians 14:1)

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

1. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom,
2. To another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,
3. To another faith by the same Spirit,
4. To another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
5. To another miraculous powers,
6. To another prophecy,
7. To another distinguishing between spirits,
8. To another speaking in different kinds of tongues,
9. and To still another the interpretation of tongues.

All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.


Revelation Gifts:

Word of Knowledge
Word of Wisdom
Gift of Discernment

Speaking Gifts:

Speaking in tongues
Interpretation of tongues

Power Gifts:

Gift of Faith
Working of Miracles
Gift of Healings

Signs, Wonders and Miracles – 2 Corinthians 12:12

And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:17-18)

John 18:4-5 – The Soldiers fell down to the ground in the Name of Jesus Christ “I AM HE”.
Jesus said, “I AM HE”. This is a Great Name.


THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRIES: Ephesians 4:11 – Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Teachers, Pastors.

Examples of some similarities:


There are differences between
1. 5 fold Ministry Teachers – Ephesians 4:11
2. Gifts of Teachings – Romans 12:6-8
3. and Teaching One Another – Colossians 3:16


1. Prophets – Ephesians 4:11
2. Gift of Prophecy – 1 Corinthians 12:10
3. Romans 12:6-8
4. Everyone can Prophesy:

1 Cor 14:5 – “I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy”.

Rev 19:10 – For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of Prophecy (Everyone can prophesy)

1 Cor 14:1 – Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.

1 Sam 19:19-20 – Word came to Saul: “David is in Naioth at Ramah”; so he sent men to capture him. But when they saw a GROUP OF PROPHETS prophesying, with Samuel standing there as their leader, THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON SAUL’S MEN AND THEY ALSO PROPHESIED.

I believe that all these 5 fold Ministry gifts carry some type of Leadership gifts within them, because the Word of God said about their Purposes, their Responsibilities, and their works in Ephe 4:12-13 –

To prepare God’s people for works of service: They prepare people for works of service, people are involved too.
So that the body of Christ may be built up: They all build up the Body of Christ, their all are building anointing.
Until we all reach unity in the faith: They will bring us into unity, not only unity but unity in our Faith in Christ.
And in the knowledge of the Son of God: Unity in the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, our knowledge in the Son of God will multiply, which will also make us frow, draw close to God and also take us into maturity.
Become Maturity: As the 5 fold ministries prepared a believers life, we will come into more maturity in our lives. As these ministries – Apostolic Ministries, Prophetic Ministries, Evangelical Ministries, Pastoral Ministries, Teaching Ministries, as these 5 ministries prepared our lives, we will also goes into maturity, even the way we had viewed maturity will be changed in many ways. Some people may view maturity in smartness and many other cultural mindsets and other things and even how the non-believers would view maturity, but as the 5 fold ministries prepared our lives, even the way we view maturities will change, the foundation will be Christ, maturity in Christ, to the fullness of Christ.
Attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ: We will come into the fullness of Christ.

All the upper purposes we find there are parts of the good sign and works of Leaders, so we could say that the 5 fold ministries all had some kind of leadership and are the pillars of the church, for the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God and they prepare/ serve the Body of Christ.


1. Prophecy
2. Serving
3. Teaching
4. Encouraging

There are many other different types of Gifts and Talents:

The Bible said: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
