Scriptures reveals that there are nine gifts of the spirit acoording to;
(1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
According to biblical numerology, the number 9 symbolizes divine completeness or conveys the meaning of finality. Christ died at the 9th hour. The derivative is that Christ departed at the complete hour (final hour).
For the sake of balance, let me advice that it’s instructional for believers not to downplay other Gifts of the Spirit after reading this post.
Because of the reveIational position of the seasons we live – The End-time. I shall be writing to address a need, nothing short of that.
It’s worthy of note that the End-time in this context is captured in the numerological text 9, denoting final. I am persuaded that our walk with God in the end time should be anchored and administratively guided by the revelational boundary called discernment of spirit.
Scriptures even declare that we should test all spirits, not the manifestation or proofs. The devil is masquerading in a garment called deception. Even the good news is been manipulated to suit the lusts of men, apostates are rising, some have risen, many will rise. No wonder Scriptures points us to the departure of some from the faith on the account of their adherence to seducing spirit.
May I quickly add that telepathically a man’s mind can be manipulated to conceive revelations in contrast to the will of God in a season…
My goal is not to downplay other gifts, but reality (mind warfare) teaches that every revelation can be doctored to fit a man’s lustful desire, there by causing him to stumble.
An oversight of this was why Jesus refused to perform signs when the devil approached Him , neither did He give into the pressure from the Jewish legislative council (Pharisees). The devil knows how to massage a man’s ego, it won’t cost him anything to doctor a fake vision, word of knowledge, revelation just to lead a man out of God’s will. We must in this season test every Spirit, through the perfect laboratory called the WORD OF GOD (the only mirror of a believer which in itself has been tried seven times and lean on an inward witness.)
The ninth hour is upon us, beloved, lean not on your own understanding.
Apostacy is real, the days are evil…
In this ninth hour you need a finite gift of grace, it’s called discernment!
God bless your understanding.
