Doctrine and Covenants, 1844

nifestation of the Spirit may be given to every  man to profit withal.
7 And again, verily I say unto you, to some  it is given, by the spirit of God, the word of  wisdom; to another it is given the word of  knowledge, that all may be taught to be wise  and to have knowledge. And again, to some  it is given to have faith to be healed, and to  others it is given to have faith to heal. And  again, to some it is given the working of mi racles; and to others it is given to prophesy,  and to others the discerning of spirits. And  again, it is given to some to speak with  tongues, and to another it is given the inter pretation of tongues: and all these gifts com eth from God, for the benefit of the children of  God. And unto the bishop of the church, and  unto such as God shall appoint and ordain to  watch over the church, and to be elders unto  the church, are to have it given unto them to  discern all those gifts, lest there shall be any  among you professing and yet be not of God.
8 And it shall come to pass that he that ask eth in spirit shall receive in spirit; that unto  some it may be given to have all those gifts,  that there may be a head, in order that every  member may be profited thereby: he that  asketh in the spirit, asketh according to the  will of God, wherefore it is done even as he  asketh.
9 And again I say unto you, all things must  be done in the name of Christ, whatsoever  you do in the spirit: and ye must give thanks  unto God in the spirit for whatsoever blessing [p. 189]
