Questions you asked the panel

Do you have a personal experience or time when your spiritual gift was used, if so what gift was it and how was it used? Knowing that in the last days satan will do many miracles by posing as God to deceive people, how can we discern between true miracle and the deceitful one? How do you know for sure what gifts we truly have? How do you tell from the outside the difference between a gift and a talent/passion? How can we discern between the voice of God and our own sinful gut feeling? Why do some people have only one spiritual gift while others have several gifts? Please explain the gift of speaking in tongues and the translation of it? How can we find out what our spiritual gifts are and can we possess all of them?
