Charismatics - The Holy Spirit or a Satanic Spirit?
The following are links to a sermon series called "The Sign Gifts" which shows that the miraculous gifts (prophecy, healing, tongues, etc.) given to Jesus and the apostles were only for a period of 40 years spanning from the beginning of Jesus' ministry to approximately 70AD. The purpose of these gifts was to confirm the word of God spoken and written by the apostles and to convince the unbelieving Jews, both of which were no longer needed when the word of God was complete and Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD.

The outline is attached below.
