The Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of God
American Fundamental Dispensationalists reject the fact that the baptism with the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit are for today. But this is not at all surprising because it is exactly what J. N. Darby believed and taught, and C. I. Scofield stated - "Tongues and the sign gifts are to cease, meanwhile they are to be used with restraint."
"Scofield spins his prohibition to cease from thin air. Nowhere do the Apostles, who gave us instructions for this age, call for a ceasing of the gifts of the Spirit. 'Wherefore, brethren covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.' (I Cor. 14:39).
God set the ministry gifts in the Church; apostles, prophets, gifts of healing, helps, governments and diversities of tongues. These gifts of the Spirit were to empower the church to carry out the Great Commission.
Lennard Darbee makes a thought provoking comment in Tongues the Dynamite of Go: 'Unlike ancient Israél, the Church no longer kills the prophets, it simply ignores them, and it is no so much the neglect of the fruits, but rather the contempt of the gifts that hamstring the Church of our day. Dies God go to great lengths describing the gifts of the Spirit of which H would not have us ignorant - line them up like ninepins and then with love for a bowling ball, do away with them? We are to desire spiritual gifts." (Lennar Darbee. Tongues the Dynamite of God. pp. 26-27).
