One Body - In this present dispensation of the grace of God there is only one church, which is called the body of Christ. It consists of all those who are saved and it had its beginning with the salvation of the Apostle Paul (Rom. 11:11; I Cor. 12:13, 27; Eph. 1:22-23, 3:1-11, 4:12; Col. 1:18, 24-25; I Tim.1:14-16).

One Spirit - The Holy Spirit is a person. He is coequal with the Father and the Son. He convicts the world of sin through the Word. He baptizes believers into the body of Christ. He regenerates, seals, indwells, enlightens, and empowers the believer (I Cor. 2:10, 12, 6:19, 12:13; Eph. 3:16, 4:30; Titus 3:5).

The prophetic work and sign gifts of the Holy Spirit are not in operation today (I Cor. 12:1-31, 13:8-13). All supernatural gifts (such as those listed in Rom. 12:6-8, I Cor. 12:8-10, and Eph. 4:11) were in effect during the period covered by the book of Acts, during which time the Word of God had not yet been completed.

Once the revelation of the mystery was completed and with the diminishing of the nation Israel, the sign gifts ceased and were "done away". The completed, inspired, and inerrant Word of God is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Today, the functions of evangelism, pastoring (shepherding), and teaching are carried out by men who "labor in the word and doctrine" (I Tim. 5:17).

Grace & Peace

These verses do not show that to be true. In fact they prove that it is false. These gifts would not cease until "perfection" comes. The scriptures have always been perfect, so it doesn't refer to that.

Also, the book of Revelations proves that cessationism is a false doctrine.

So what do you mean by that?

Does that mean that all prophecies spoken after the book of Revelations was finished are false? Is that it?

Does it mean that such prophecies add to the Word of God and that such prophecies would show that the Word of God is incomplete?

Is that what you mean?

If it is NOT in the C-O-M-P-L-E-TE-D Word of God (THE BIBLE) now, all the prophecies made by the people like Benny Hinn are F-A-L-S-E.

Why do you people avoid questions all the time?

Don't you have the courage to stand for what you say?

Were my questions too hard for you to understand?

What's up?
