When you take the first audience perspective into consideration, and understand that "soon" did not mean 2,000 + years and counting, then the answer to your question is Yes. The spiritual gifts were promised to that generation of the 1st century AD as Peter stated on the day of Pentecost.
"38 and Peter said unto them, `Reform, and be baptized each of you on the name of Jesus Christ, to remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, 39 for to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.'" (Acts 2:38-39, YLT)
The promise was to those of that generation... "to you and to your children".. those standing there at the temple in Jerusalem in 30 or 31 AD. "And to all those afar off..." were the gentiles who had not yet been grafted in, but still of that generation.
So, Paul's statement to those of Corinth just before the passover of 55 AD (1) were of that same generation that rec'd the promise of Joel's prophesy on the day of Pentecost about 24 years earlier, and were still looking forward to Jesus' coming in judgment of that same generation.
"Verily I say to you, this generation may not pass away till all these may come to pass." (Matt. 24:34, YLT)
It was their generation that was going to see His return, His second appearance to them (Heb. 9:28). It is not our generation; it is not "this generation" today when we are reading. It was "this generation" almost 2,000 years ago. Their generation was going to see the revelation of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) in the promised judgments which He told His disciples in the venacular they would recognize.
"And concerning that day and the hour no one hath known..." (Matt. 24:36, YLT).
The very words they associated with the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) on the first of Tishri. Can you really believe that Jesus did not know when He was going to return? He didn't tell his disciples which year and which 1st of Tishri, but if they had been following the pattern from the OT, they might have expected the mirror of the 40 years wandering in the wilderness to be repeated for the probate of the gospel of Christ throughout the "world" of the ancient Roman empire - the 4th beast kingdom from Daniel's prophesies.
Because that is when Daniel was told that judgment would sit (Dan. 7:23-27). Christ told them that when that temple fell that He would separate out all those from Hades with the sheep (righteous) to his right, and the goats (wicked rebellious ones) to his left (Matt. 25:31-46). As Matt. 25 was linked to the prophesy of the fall of the temple in Matt. 24, and as that temple did fall under the Romans in AD 70, then Jesus carried out that judgment in AD 70.
And, the spiritual gifts which were dispensed by the laying on of the hands of the apostles (Acts 19:1-6) were the miraculous proofs to the people that the gospel was truly authorized by and sent by God, then those died out just as Paul told them they would (1 Cor. 13:8-13) when that which was perfect was come.
That which was perfect has meaning for the righteous one, our Savior, and for His kingdom; both of which came in judgment at the fall of that temple in AD 70 and with the full completed establishment of His perfect everlasting kingdom at the completion of the old Mosaic sacrificial covenant.
Jesus did it all. He kept His word to His disciples and we can rely upon it. We have the record of those miraculous deeds, and we have the word of the Holy Spirit. We have the Spirit through His word. All we have to do is study it.
The miraculous gifts were promised for that generation and were very public demonstrations for the people to be able to believe in Him.
