Here are my notes from Robert Morris talk titled: MY FRIEND THE HOLY SPIRIT – Is He pentecostal?

Charismatic ::

  • Charis = grace
  • MA = gift

You never earn a gift, and you can not earn grace.

  • The instant enablement of the Holy Spirit in the life of any believer is to exercise a gift for the EDIFICATION of others.
  • Manifest = to make known
  • There is no such thing as a “Gift of discernment”. Usually those who say they have this gift really have a critical spirit, which is judgement, not grace
  • We can receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit but they are not ours, we just are able to use them as HE wills.
  • Prophecy is intended to encourage. Corrective prophecy is just a person trying to correct something on their own, using Gods weight to manipulate the situation.
  • Prophecy is for exhortation, edification and comfort.
  • To encourage is to put COURAGE into someone
  • Tongues in front of non-believers is weird. It does not encourage, it creates questions and leaves people confused.
  • “I would rather you prophecy than speak in tongues so that people will be edified, encouraged, strengthened, and built up.” – Robert Morris
