Yes, the Seer Gift Can Run in Families

I often speak with people who wonder if the seer gift sometimes runs in family. For instance, sometimes a grandparent will be able to see spiritual phenomena, and then it skips a generation, manifesting again in grandchildren. Other times, a parent can see spirits and then notices his or her child can as well. Sometimes this ability appears in siblings….

Spiritual Gifts, Spiritual People, and Spiritual Things Part 3

This is the final of a 3 part series. Part 1 is here. Part 2 is here. Why does God give grace endowments, ministries and activities? For the common good: to serve others.

Spiritual Gifts, Spiritual People or Spiritual Things, Part 2

For Part 1, go here. Spiritual Things or Spiritual People, continued We left off with the question in 1 Corinthians 12:1, concerning spiritual… what exactly?

Carson explains,  “If the…

On Spiritual Gifts, Spiritual Things, and Spiritual People Part 1

Lately, I’ve been bothered by a lot of wildly inaccurate teachings on spiritual gifts. On one side, there are the charismatics, supposedly people who believe in and practice spiritual gifts in accordance with 1 Corinthians 12 through 14, and elsewhere in the Bible.

How I respond when someone tells me, “I see spirits all the time.”

I regularly hear from people who tell me, “I see spirits all the time.” They aren’t crazy; they aren’t hallucinating; they aren’t even all that special, or at least they don’t want to be.

Instead, I invited subscribers to join me in conversation on a privacy-conscious social media platform called MeWe. Several of you already have done so.

The Problem With Children who See Spirits

There’s a serious problem with children who see spirits. But here’s a hint: the trouble with children who see spirits… isn’t the children. Around us all the time is a reality that is largely unseen, but not unnoticed. It’s the spirit realm, or the spiritual world, or the unseen realm, whatever you want to call it. Do not think of…
