    8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail whether there be tongues, they shall cease whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. We can have all the gifts from God to heal, speaking tongues and laying of hands, but it don't mean nothing if we don't have LOVE . let's spread the GOSPEL of Love. 1 Corinth 15:1-4
  • A disciple
    Hello Ray; It doesn't say anywhere, that Paul couldn't heal his friend, and certainly not that the Holy Spirit in him was "fading" or he couldn't speak in tongues any more. Epaphroditus was exhausted from working himself out! By answer to PRAYERS God raised him back up, and he recovered health. There's too many that don't carry their weight in the Lord's work! So others have unfairly heavy loads.
  • Ray321
    Now Apostle Paul couldn't heal with the gift of the Holy Ghost because Epaphroditus was very sick to death. Paul had the Holy Spirit inside him, but the gift of Holy Ghost must of faded away. Epaphroditus may have died with out getting heal. Food for thought and very interesting to know why Paul couldn't heal or speak in tongues later in his ministry. His epistles speak for its self.
  • A disciple
    "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus...being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." This word, "LET THIS MIND..." makes me wonder at the possibilities God has provided, and the things He has planned for us, that we as yet can only vaguely see. How did Jesus look at His life here, and all He had to encounter?
