YES its still very much possible for a backslidden xtian 2manifest the GIFTS of the Spirit cz the gifts n callings of God are without repentance(Rom 11:29).Bt for a blacksliden xtian who is definitly cut off the vine,it sure won't be the H/Spirit that wd power such gifts;the gifts wd remain bt oda spirits wd tk advantage of it. This has a terrible cosequence cz such fellow wd minister errors,transfer evil spirits,teach heresies e.t.c so we shld be wary of such ppl bt to continually pray for their restoratn back 2d vine.P.S:The FRUIT f d Spirit s d best yardstick 2knw a man's state in Christ. ...

Example of heresy case was when God put a lying spirit in the mouth of the prophets so as to bring down the evil king of Israel (1Kings 22:22, 2Chron 18:22).

Whenever any word/prophesy doesn't flow with the Spirit of God/our spirit's witness, we have to discard it! ...

The bible says, For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. So it is very much possible for a backslidden christian to manifest the gifts. But most times, the person in question still believes he is still on track whereas he has fallen( this is dangerous). So manifesting the gifts does not mean you are still with GOD but manifesting the fruit of the Spirit does and will take you to Heaven. ...
