Gifts, given by the Spirit of God as a supernatural manifestation, sign gift, supernatural appointment, or empowerment for service (as described in I Cor. 12, Rom. 12, Eph. 4) have ceased with the completion of the written revelation of God's perfect Word. Today, God's Word effectually works in the Believer who is filled with His Word and Spirit -- thereby, informed, motivated, enabled and led to: preach the gospel to the lost, teach, admonish, help, pastor, and oversee the local assembly, which appoints such as are qualified. (Rom.12:1-3; I Cor.13:8-10; Eph.4:11-16; 5:18: Col. 3:16; I Thess. 2:13; I Tim. 3:1-15; 5:17-25; II Tim. 3:16,17)
