We are getting ready to get into the VERBAL GIFTS!
There are 3 Verbal Spiritual Gifts:
2) Interpretation of Tongues
WHAT IS THE SPIRITUAL GIFT CALLED TONGUES?
First we must distinguish the difference between the Gift of Tongues (public tongues) and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (evidence by tongues / private tongues).
Baptism in the Holy Spirit was first seen in Acts 2:4, And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is for every single believer for prayer, worship, and stirring up the spirit of man by the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:39, For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.
PRIVATE TONGUES ARE FOR EVERY BELIEVER AND IS AN EVIDENCE OF THE INFILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
The Gift is DIFFERENT!
1 Cor. 12:10b, different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
The major difference between private and public tongues is its purpose.
PUBLIC TONGUES ARE TO ENCOURAGE, BUILD, AND STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH!
I was in a service once where there were 5000 plus people. As a song was ending in the way back someone was speaking loudly in tongues. It was like a HUSH came across the whole church at the same time. It was such a holy moment as Jesus was speaking to His church through a supernatural message in tongues. The interpretation of tongues literally changed my whole walk with God and ministry.
