The charismata or gifts of The Spirit appeared early in the life and ministry of the church of God. The gifts can be devided into three categories : the gifts of revelation, the gifts of power and the gifts of utterance or inspiration. The
gifts of revelation are the gifts of the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge and discerning of spirits. The gifts of power are faith, miracles, and the gifts of healing. The gifts of utterance and inspiration are prophecy, tongues and interpretation. The
Holy Spirit bestow these gifts and those who accept the validity of these gifts are called charismatic.
