Is The Promise Of The Father For Today?
What Does Scripture Say?
Not For Today
1 Corinthians 13:8-12*
*Although Cessationists use 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 to support their contention that the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Spirit have ceased, and are not for today; in this passage, Paul is clearly speaking about things that will happen after Messiah returns. If this passage proves that the gifts of the Holy Spirit have ceased, then we must have missed the rapture!
Unless one reads the Scriptures listed to the right through the lense of Cessationist doctrine, it is impossible to conclude from Scripture that the Babtism in the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are not for today!
Clearly, the promise of the Father is for today!
