Precious friend(s), surely, we All {In Fellowship With our LORD JESUS}, do
know And Understand And agree (1 Corinthians 1 : 9-10 KJB!),
on This Important Verse Of God!, Correct?:

"And Now Abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but
The Greatest of these is Charity!" (1_Corinthians_13 : 13 KJB!)

But, how about This trio of gifts - Are they for us today?:

Modern Day prophet(ess)? Speaking in tongues? Word of knowledge?

There is, I believe, a Very Simple Solution, found In The
Perfect {Which "Has come," And we have}, Pure And
Preserved Word of God, The Bible, Prayerfully and Carefully studied:

“...Though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all
mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that
I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing…”

Does God Still Have these in effect Today?

What Saith The Pure, Preserved, Precious And Perfect Scriptures?

“...Charity suffereth long...(+14 others!)...Charity never faileth...

...BUT Whether there be PROPHECIES, they SHALL FAIL;
whether there be TONGUES, they SHALL CEASE; whether there
be KNOWLEDGE, it shall VANISH AWAY. For we know in part, and
we PROPHESY IN PART.”

The prophecies SHALL FAIL? Who believes that? Surely not
the prophecy experts, correct? Or, one could ask, when?

(A) At the Coming End Of Time {Perfect New Heavens and New Earth?},
when there are No more prophecies to be fulfilled? Or:

(B) At The Second Coming of CHRIST, Who Is “Perfect,”
But, with still More Remaining prophecies To Be Fulfilled?
Then, we wonder, what Exactly does this mean?

“But when That Which Is Perfect Is Come, then
that which is In Part SHALL BE DONE AWAY.”
(1_Corinthians_13:1-10 KJB!)

Since (A) And (B) above do not make sense about "prophecies,"
may we then suggest for your Careful/Prayerful Consideration?:

(C) Has not "That Which IS PERFECT" Already COME?

IF so, Then “that which is in part” = the “gift of tongues” has Ceased,
the gift of “the word of knowledge” has Vanished, And the “gift of
prophecy
” has Failed! IF so, then we kindly ask:

(1) Does this not explain Why missionaries Have To Study/Learn
"foreign" languages, Before departing to the country God Called
them to serve? Because, the “gift of tongues” has Ceased?

(2) Where does This Truth leave Ellen White and Seventh Day Adventism?
And, ALL Other so-called “prophets/prophetesses”?
Because, the “gift of prophecy” has Failed?

(3) What about All The watchmen prophecies and failing "dreams and
visions Date-Setters" of The Great GRACE Departure { aka rapture }?...
Because “the word of knowledge” has Vanished? Not apologizing for So
Many questions, just trying my best To Get To God's Word Of Truth, for me,
And ALL of the pending Confusion would Be ENDED, Right?:

...Need Bible Confirmation, correct?:

"Whereof I am made a minister, according to The Dispensation
of God Which is given to me for you, to fulfil [ Complete! Or Fill Up!! ]
The Word of God (Perfect?)"
(Colossians_1 : 25 cp Psalms 12 : 6-7; 138 : 2 KJB!)

If “That ( neuter gender ) Which is Perfect" is Not The
Perfect CHRIST ( Masculine Gender ), Then Is This not The
Only Other Choice?:

The Pure And Perfect Written Word Of God,
HIS Precious And Holy Scriptures?

Further Biblical Confirmation!:

"The Words Of The LORD Are Pure Words: As silver tried in a
furnace of earth, Purified Seven Times! THOU Shalt Keep Them,
O LORD, THOU Shalt Preserve Them from this generation For Ever!"
( Psalms_12 : 6-7 KJB! )

"I will worship toward THY holy temple, and praise THY Name for
THY Lovingkindness and for THY Truth: for THOU Hast Magnified
Thy WORD Above All THY {Perfect?} Name!" (Psalms_138 : 2 KJB!)

Therefore, HIS Word Is The Absolute Final Authority! And
God Warns!: All "who think Above, or, Exceed or Add to IT!":

"And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to
myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us

NOT TO THINK ABOVE THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN,

that no one of you be puffed up for one against another."
(1_Corinthians_4 : 6 KJB!)
{Sad that Many "self-proclaimed" [whatevers] do this Very Thing, Correct?}

...Finally, IF TRUTH!:

(4) WHY would any child Of God today, "settle for Less { that which
is in Part! }," When they Could Have ALL Of What God Has For them?:

"Who also declared unto us your LOVE In The Spirit. For this cause
we also, since the day we heard it , do not cease to pray for you,
and to desire that ye Might Be Filled With The Knowledge Of HIS
Will In All Wisdom And Spiritual Understanding!" (Colossians_1 : 8-9!)

"That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together In
LOVE, and Unto All Riches Of The Full Assurance Of Understanding,
to the acknowledgement Of The Mystery of God, And Of The Father,
And Of CHRIST!" (Colossians_2 : 2!)

Because God Has Done Away With That "which was In Part!" Amen?

Thus, the humble Confusion Clearing Conclusion of this study, is that:

The trio of Expired gifts of "prophecy, word of knowledge, And
speaking in tongues," Have Been Superseded Today, By God,
With The Remaining, And NOW Abiding THREE Gifts Of:

"faith, hope, And love In Grace, Pure GRACE!"
And, The GREATEST Of These Is LOVE!!
+
”All the law Is FULFILLED In ONE WORD: LOVE thy neighbor!”
(Galatians 5 : 14; Romans 13 : 8-10 KJB!) Amen?
-------------------------------------------
Blessed Be The Name of The LORD, And HIS Perfect, Pure, And
"Exalted Above All His Name," WORD For Ever And Ever!! Amen?

Grace, chapter 13 also says WHEN these will pass away, and that is when we see Him FACE TO FACE. The second coming. If the perfect were the Bible, then what do you do with all the verses pertaining to the laws regarding the gifts? Just cut them out of that which is already perfect? To hold up the Bible without learning and DOING what it says such as "forbid not to speak in tongues", you are holding up a meaningless idol, without the life giving Spirit. No where in chapter 13 does Paul say that His letters are the perfect.

Prophecy, tongues and word of knowledge have not CEASED.

If the word of knowledge ceased there would be no automobiles, aircraft, TV, computers, cell phones, doctors, lawyers, and all other ideas that lead to the truth of a better functioning society, a more advanced society.

...BUT Whether there be PROPHECIES, they SHALL FAIL;
whether there be TONGUES, they SHALL CEASE; whether there
be KNOWLEDGE, it shall VANISH AWAY. For we know in part, and
we PROPHESY IN PART.”

That scripture was written 2,000 years ago, keep in mind that we had what we call the dark ages: Dark Ages (historiography)

"The "Dark Ages" is a historical periodization traditionally referring to the Early Middle Ages or Middle Ages, that asserts that a demographic, cultural, and economic deterioration occurred in Western Europe following the decline of the Roman Empire.[1][2]"

Prophecy has already been fulfilled and over with, time to move on with the gifts.

That's for sure seeing as I never had those gifts for 23 years as a Cessationist. Only when I was born again and filled with His Spirit did I receive them, and I can't deny them anymore.

And for those carnal thinkers, no, it wasn't Satan I was filled with. Because my life as a Cessationist was full of slavery to sin. But as soon as I was filled with God, all my desires for sin were gone.

And a lot of Bibles after years of ownership are just like new because they are so rarely opened!
Then again if a person does open his Bible and read it but rarely or never talks to God what or who can he know that is good? There is only one good and that is God!

"And Now Abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but
The Greatest of these is Charity!" (1_Corinthians_13 : 13)

But, how about This trio of gifts - Are they for us today?:
Precious friend(s), for your prayerful/Careful consideration:
"
The Abiding Trinity
...The word now is not used here in a temporal but a logical sense.
It could be rendered: “And thus these three remain.” It is the next
logical step in his argument that while some things will pass away
to be replaced by others, there are certain basic factors which will
“abide” or remain. These are faith, hope and love, and with the
passing of the sign gifts these give full and sufficient evidence of
normal and healthy Christianity....

...Sacrifices, circumcision and the law have passed away; the sign
gifts have ceased, but these graces remain as an abiding trinity
and will abide forever...

Wonder why the translators of the KJV chose to render that Charity instead of Love? You nailed it though in the closing statement, Love your neighbor (as yourself), could you just picture how the world would be if just 50% put that to practice? One day it will be 100%, another reason why we pray for God's Kingdom to come.

If you look at the List of Spiritual Gifts, you notice that they are organized and ordered, according to PRIORITY.

Paul says to "covet the best Gift", and Pentecostals-Charismatics, do not.
They chase "tongues, that is near the bottom of the list of importance, instead., and they have no idea that this is not a "prayer language".
