Gifts of God

Anthology of scriptures on the subject.

by David W. Allan, Jan. 2003

And again I would exhort you that ye would come unto Christ, and lay hold upon every good gift, and touch not the evil gift, nor the unclean thing.

-- Moroni 10:30

ETERNAL LIFE – The greatest of all the gifts – offered by the Father through His Son. All other gifts are for the purpose of helping us gain the greatest gift. (1 Ne. 15:36; John 3:16)

LOVE – to give, to receive, and to know that we are loved. This all dimensioned love is charity, which is the pure love of Christ. Pray for it with all the energy of heart...(Moroni 7:47-48; 1 Cor. 13:)

FAITH – Leads us to know the Father and the Son, their character and attributes, and that the course we are pursuing is according to the Father’s will. (Moroni 10:23-25; Lectures on Faith, and 1 Cor. 12:9)

HOPE – is the wellspring leading to salvation. If we have no hope, we are in despair,... “and despair cometh because of iniquity.” (Moroni 10:19-23)

HOLY GHOST – “ the gift of God unto all those who diligently seek him,” He will witness of the Father and the Son. ...will keep us from being deceived. Teach us the truth. Enlightens our minds. Bring all things to our remembrance. Testifies of the truth. Reproves sin. The Comforter. The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy and peace. Sanctifies us. Purifies us. Teaches us all things what we should do – to know the will of the Father for us. (1 Ne. 10:17; John 14-16; Gal. 5:22; T.G.; 3 Ne 19:9)

Gifts enumerated in 1 Cor. 12; Moro. 10; and D&C 46: know that Jesus is the Christ believe on the testimony of others know the differences of administration know the diversities of operation

...of teaching wisdom

...of teaching knowledge

...of healing be healed work mighty miracles

...of prophesy

...of beholding of angels

...of ministering of spirits

...of discerning of spirits

...of interpretation of languages

...of speaking in tongues

...of interpretation of tongues

...of discerning of gifts

In ADDITION there are other important gifts we should seek:

...of revelation – knowing and listening to the Spirit.

...of humility, that we may hear and know the truth when spoken to us and to learn to listen with love. hunger and thirst after righteousness. be forgiving and merciful with no resentments. be pure in heart (having the spirit of Zion). be a peacemaker (gentleness). be grateful for all things. be temperate, patient, diligent, kind

Following paths of righteousness fosters the gifts of God. If there are no gifts, it is because of iniquity: (Mormon 1:14.)
“...turn ye unto the Lord; cry mightily unto the Father in the name of Jesus, that perhaps ye may be found spotless, pure, fair, and white, having been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, at that great and last day. ...unto you who deny the revelations of God, and say ...there are no revelations, nor prophecies, nor gifts,... ...he that denieth these things knoweth not the gospel of Christ; yea, he has not read the scriptures; if so, he does not understand them. (Morm. 9:6-8)
