BENEFITS OF REVELATIONAL GIFTS 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “Covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.” 1Corinthians 12:31
Read: Daniel 2:46-49
Bible in one year:  Luke 7-9
Prayer point: Father, give me the gifts of the Holy Spirit and let them begin to manifest in my life and ministry for Your glory

You cannot underestimate the benefits of the revelational gifts in the life (A an individual, group or nation. When God reveals a bit of knowledge to you, to enable you  solve a particular problem, you may be regarded as some god. If you doubt it, take a look at the life of Daniel. After he successfully interpreted the kings dream, the king fell down and worshipped him, asking that incense be offered to him. This is a trap. No matter what God reveals to and through you, never share ¡n the glory. Give it all to Him. Also, never allow man to turn you into God. if you do, you will turn God against you. However, as can be seen in today’s reading, even though the king recognised that it was the God of Daniel that revealed the dream to him and his colleagues, he began to relate with Daniel as he would relate with God. The revelational gifts can bring uncommon honour to you but be very careful not to accept worship of men, or take what should only go to God - all the glory! Another benefit of the revelational gifts ¡s that it can deliver you from sudden death. If Daniel and his colleagues were not able to provide the interpretation of the dream, they and all the wise men of Babylon would have paid dearly with their lives. Do you know that God can still use this gift to deliver you from death? Also, it can make you great. Daniel suddenly became great and was given great gifts. This gift attracts great gifts and greatness. It can also bring you promotion like they got. Daniel became chief
governor among the governors while his friends were put in charge of the affairs of Babylon. The revelational gifts will bring you before the high and mighty and set you up in their midst. The gifts can also bring you tremendous prosperity. But beware; the gifts are not for merchandising. You do not sell the gifts. In addition, these gifts can help you to escape from danger as you will foresee the danger. If you are able to see the exact place where the enemy is setting a trap for you, when you get close, you will know how  to escape. May the Lord release these revelational gifts to you this season. How hungry are you for these gifts?
