Much is debated today about if miraculous gifts (aka “power of the Holy Spirit” in Scripture and charismatic gifts today) of the Holy Spirit still exist. Miraculous gifts as a topic is sometimes condensed into two camps – cessationists and continuationists. It is a debate closely associated with and connected to whether or not God still works miracles today.
he miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are understood to be those gifts of the Holy Spirit that defied natural law (i.e. miraculous) whose purpose was laying the foundation of the church. They were most usually the gifts of tongues and prophecy discussed at length in I Corinthians 13-14 by Paul, but also included healings such as Peter performed (Acts 9) with the express purpose of confirming the word and their authority (given by God).
We could ask “Do miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit still continue today?” But just as the miracle question is more fundamentally answered by understanding their purpose, the miraculous gifts question is more fundamentally answered by understanding how they were given.
