8For to one, through the Spirit, is given [the] word of wisdom, and to another [the] word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
9to a different one faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
10and to another operations of powers, and to another prophecy, and to another discerning of spirits; to a different one kinds of tongues, and to another interpretation of tongues.
11But all these things operateth the one and the same Spirit, dividing in particular to each as he pleaseth.
12For even as the body is one and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
13For by one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, and were all made to drink of one Spirit.

e
It is not "about to come," for the act of the Lord's coming is not immediately before the mind. I will not say there is no allusion to the future awaited exercise of divine power; for in Daniel, not only is the Son of man brought before the Ancient of days, but the Ancient of days comes. In the words "who is, and was, and is to come," there is surely reference to the abiding nature of his being. "Who is to come" seems to me thus to render more truly the sense than any other form of words. The Greek has the future sense. See Mark 10.30, Luke 18.30; and Mark 11.10 partly runs into this sense. "The coming one" became a name of the expected Messiah, as in Matt. 11.3, and in Heb. 10.37. But note, "essential being" is put first, "who is"; and then "time past, and to come." "Who is" asserts the essential nature of his being.
