How to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit
The gifts of the Holy Spirit also called spiritual gifts are given by the Holy Spirit to help us minister the love, life and power of Jesus Christ through the supernatural.
You receive these spiritual gifts when you are born again and have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The first initial sign that you have received the power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. However, because you do not speak in tongues doesn’t mean you have not received the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
