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. 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 13:8
Paul says to eagerly seek after spiritual gifts, but many believe there are no longer spiritual gifts in operation. Is it any wonder that these gifts are not seen in the churches then? If prophesy and tongues have ceased, has knowledge also ceased? Some say prophesy is now just reading scripture, but God’s word, even in the New Testament seems to say otherwise.
And in these days prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch. Then one of them, named Agabus, stood up and showed by the Spirit that there was going to be a great famine throughout all the world, which also happened in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, each according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren dwelling in Judea. This they also did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul. -Acts 11:27
