_“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, 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.” -1 Corinthians 12:7-11_

1 John Kuykendall = "_“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, 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.” -1 Corinthians 12:7-11_Salutations to the Divinity within you and the beautiful quote you posted Peter. ) May we all identify with the soul and discover we are spirit with a mind and body. In the mind and body we can come apart because we feel unconnected to the source so we need to convert back to that spiritual union so we can dance and share the presence of God on earth with everyone we encounter, not with speech, but with presence. To reconnect with the source of our being we need to become aware of our unformed self on the spiritual plane so we can experience and know the unity with God. Death forces us into the transition to the spiritual realm, but we can choose to transition back to the spiritual realm without death and if we choose not to reconnect with the source of Infinity; it waits until we change our mind. The energy of the universe cooperates with us when we try to harmonize and align with it in this unity called love. The physical, mental and spiritual levels of the universe are united and when they work together in a shared vision, cooperating together in a bond of peace great things happen.  John Kuykendall's author page  �"
2 Sarah R = "This passage refers to spiritual gifts given through the Holy Spirit to the believer. Other passages on spiritual gifts can be found in Ephesians 4 and Romans 12."
3 Sarah R = "What's the difference between the gift of wisdom and the gift of knowledge? Think of it this way: the gift of knowledge is knowing something supernaturally - something that you would not have known otherwise. The gift of wisdom is knowing what to do with that knowledge. Hopefully the two go together, as knowledge without wisdom can be used to harm as opposed to build up."
4 Sarah R = "Distinguishing between spirits makes me think of that movie with Keenu Reeves, "Constantine," where he is able to see into the spirit world. We'd like to think that such things are only of movies, but the Bible is clear that there are angels and demons at work in this world (see Eph 6:12ff for example). Those gifted with distinguishing between spirits have insight like Reeves in the movie where they can sense when spiritual forces are at work and sometimes even see into the spiritual realm. "
