Distinctions Between the 9 Fruits and the 9 Gifts of the Holy Spirit
As Christians, the most wonderful things that can happen to all of us if we receive Jesus being our
personal Lord as well as Savior is the fact that we will get to receive the Holy Spirit Himself. And
we get to receive the Holy Spirit at once during our conversions with the Lord, not at some point
As soon as we receive the Holy Spirit, He'll then come to live in our human spirits, in which after
that, He will then start to work very closely with us so we can all fully fulfill all that God the Father
want for us to do for Him while down here on this earth.
God has a set, divine destiny for every individual's life, and its the job of the Holy Spirit Himself in
helping us meet that divine destiny for the Lord when we live through this materialistic life. This is
exactly why the Bible defines the Holy Spirit the Helper, because His job is to guide us in every
area where we'll need His immediate guidance on in this life.
In addition to the Holy Spirit having the ability to help us meet our divine destinies for the Lord, we
also get 2 more incredible things with Him once we receive Him in our human spirits. The Bible
tells us that the Holy Spirit can release 9 incredible gifts to us, together with 9 incredible fruits in to
The 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit are the following:
The 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit are the following:
The Word of Knowledge
The Word of Wisdom
The Gift of Prophecy
The Gift of Faith
The Gifts of Healings
The Working of Miracles
The Discerning of Spirits
Different Kinds of Tongues
The Interpretation of Tongues
The primary differences involving these two are that the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit are for the
purpose of our praise in the Lord. God's ultimate and highest desire for all of us is our praise in
Him. He wants to make us more holy like Himself. He wants to turn us into the express picture of
His Son Jesus Christ. He would like to bless and set us apart to Himself.
These 9 certain fruits are character qualities comes directly from the Lord Himself. These is His
direct character qualities, not ours. This shall be God's peace, love, and joy that will start to run
through us if the Holy Spirit starts to unleash as well as transmit these fruits into our individualities.
As a result, every believer must ask God to start to work these divine qualities to their personalities
and so we can all be a little more Christ-like in our words, actions, as well as behavior.
The 9 gifts are immediate manifestations that we can also obtain from the Holy Spirit, but many of
these gifts are going to be put to use to help other people out. The 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit are
meant more for our personal gratitude in the Lord, but the 9 gifts are important power gifts that can
be used that can help other people out in their moment of necessity.
All of us needs to have words of knowledge and also wisdom from the Lord from time to time
through other believers. God uses these kinds of gifts to help build us up and to help confirm what
He has already told us.
We also need the gift of healing to show itself at times so people can be made well again and stay
on their divine destinies for the Lord. The gift of the discerning of spirits can be used to help
someone out who have demons attached to them. The gift of tongues can be used to pray to the
Lord when we will not know how to pray about something specific.
In general, each and every believer should ask the Lord in intense, heart-felt prayer to unlock both
9 fruits and the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit to their lives, because we all need them to become the
kind of holy person God wants us to become in Him, together with needing them to fully achieve
our divine destinies for Him as we live through this materialistic life.
