Gifts of the Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit are Spiritual. They will supernaturally manifest, in and through people. Though they are as real as we are, natural people don't know them, since only spirituals can discern spiritual things. Evil spirits and devil possession are also real. The devil can also do miracles, healing, etc, imitate the works of God, and deceive people.
We learn from the churches a lot of Christian terminology. Everybody speak as if we are all spiritual, but it is all cliché and we don't even believe it. Everybody know that it are not real, but we all accept it since it is our religion. We also talk about eternal life, eternal damnation, heaven, and hell. These are all only talking points, but nobody believe them. If they believe them, they will try their best to escape hell for real. They will not be satisfied with just a cliché or with their own common sense. If they have cancer, they will go to a good doctor for good treatment. If they are served a warrant, they will seek a good attorney to escape prison. Hell fire is more serious than these. If they believe in it, they will not relax, sit with just common sense and say that they will go to heaven, but not go to hell. Actually we all do not believe in hell, but we talk as if it is real. Spiritual things are not real to natural people, because it can only be discerned by spiritual people. "1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." Heavenly things can neither be seen by us nor perceived by our hearts. God says that we need the spirit of God to make us understand them. Natural man has artificial Intelligence that is evil. It will reject godly things because they are foolishness to them. But God reveals all things to spiritual people.
