c. Once a believer is filled with the Holy Spirit, he can pray in tongues at any time. This “prayer language” is to build up himself spiritually. (Jude 20)

Ability to discern/distinguish between spirits: The God-given ability to know what is from God and what is not from Him. The Divine ability to see evil spirits, angels, Jesus, or influence and bring God's power to those who are needing deliverance. People with this ability are also known to be able to see shades of light or darkness over people beyond their natural eye, tell truth from lie, as well as see God's power in people and places.
The Gift of (Special) Faith: This special faith gives the Spirit-filled believer a supernatural ability to raise the dead, control the weather by stopping tornadoes, hurricanes, making it rain, stripping shingles from limbs, pulling braces off of children and telling them to run, etc. Knowing what you hope for, having a conviction about things you cannot see, trusting God, believing God’s Word beyond your own faith.
If you wonder if you can raise someone from the dead, YOU CAN’T!
If you wonder if you are able to command a tornado back up into the clouds, YOU CAN’T!
“The Gift of Faith is a divine gift or enabling by the Spirit of God that causes what is spoken or desired by man, or spoken by God to ultimately come to pass. The human or divine miracle, utterance, certainty, cursing or benefit, creation or destruction, removal or change, will eventually come to pass when it has been spoken under the inspiration of special faith.” - Kenneth Hagin
Smith Wigglesworth said that if you will take a step of ordinary faith, when you come to the end of that faith, very often this supernatural gift will take over. One more reason people don’t see the manifestation of special faith operating in their lives is that they don’t first use what faith they already have.
Under Wigglesworth ministry, at least three different people were raised from the dead. One instance was a man named Mr. Mitchell whom Wigglesworth personally knew. One day from coming home from an open-air meeting, Wigglesworth’s wife, Polly, was at Mr. Mitchell’s home. The day before when Wigglesworth had visited Mitchell, the sick man had been close to death.
As Wigglesworth hurried to Mitchell’s house, he heard screaming coming from the house. On the way into Mitchell’s room, he passed Mrs., Mitchell, who was crying, “He’s gone! He’s gone!”
Wigglesworth related his experience:
I just passed Mrs. Mitchell and went into the room, and immediately I saw that Mitchell had gone. I could not understand it, but I began to pray. My wife was always afraid that I would go too far, and she would lay hold of me and said, “Don’t, Dad! Don’t you see that he’s dead?”
But I continued praying. I got as far as I could with my own faith, and then God laid hold of me. Oh, it was such a laying hold that I could believe for anything. The faith of the Lord Jesus laid hold of me and a solid peace came into my heart. I shouted, “He lives! He lives! He lives!” And he is living today.”
