Charity (part 5)

"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." (1 Cor. 13:8)

This particular grace of charity will continue on long after the revelatory gifts cease. I believe these revelatory gifts of the Spirit have ceased partly because revelation from God is finalized and complete in the Bible (see Rev. 22:18-19). BUT charity will continue well into the new Heaven and New earth, or it will flourish forever in eternity future with God, when we see Him face to face, when our imperfections are put to perfection.
