The Gifts of the Spirit are the result of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. They are essentially ministry gifts empowering the believer to do the work of God. These Gifts are available to all Christians but not everyone is baptised in the Holy Spirit. First, one must be a true Christian, born again spiritually. This means that your life is commited to Jesus Christ and you have a relationship with Him. There are counterfiets which demons use to decieve people. If you can do these things but are not a Christian baptised in the Holy Spirit then the source is demonic irrespective of your motives. You can read in the Book of Acts and in Corinthians about the Gifts. You will find even an instance of someone who tried to use the Gifts without the Baptism and another who tried to buy the Gifts.

What faith do you follow? If you are non christian, then it is likely that they will hate the fact that you have these gifts. As a Witch, I am considered to be in league with the Devil, even though I don't believe in the Devil, or God. Just do what you feel is right. You aren't harming anyone.
