Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


12:9 Faith may here mean an extraordinary trust in God under the most difficult or dangerous circumstances. The gift of healing need not be wholly confined to the healing diseases with a word or a touch. It may exert itself also, though in a lower degree, where natural remedies are applied; and it may often be this, not superior skill, which makes some physicians more successful than others. And thus it may be with regard to other gifts likewise. As, after the golden shields were lost, the king of Judah put brazen in their place, so, after the pure gifts were lost, the power of God exerts itself in a more covert manner, under human studies and helps; and that the more plentifully, according as there is the more room given for it.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


1Co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit. Not that faith which "comes by hearing" (Ro 10:17), but that faith which carried miraculous power. See 1Co 13:2 Mt 17:20.

  • Earl W Fisher for verse 9
    I am completely stumped by this very apparent and purposefully placed plural tense of the Gift of Healing, no other place and with no other Gifts of the Spirit is this used. I teach a class, am 62 years old and have pastored for years, here is some new thing that has me, to be honest; stymied! Can any one share light on it. Please don't come to me with a bunch of different "applications" of the same gift of healing, been there; that is not what I am looking for. Thank you.
  • I am reading that we are all a part of the church of Him who came to save us from sin, and to some are granted gifts to heal, gifts to do other things. I would like to read what others percieve. My friend said only the deciples were able to do these things.
