1 Cor. 14:18, I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.
Paul was unashamed that he spoke in tongues and more than that said that he spoke in tongues more than all the people in the Corinthian church.
So many today are ashamed that they speak in tongues, or they do not want people to think they are strange.
I THINK YOU ARE STRANGE IF YOU DO NOT SPEAK IN TONGUES…….LOL!
HOW IS THAT FOR FLIP FLOPPING?
Speaking in tongues is a phenomenal gift from Jesus to His church so that we can:
- Strengthen our inner man – Jude 1:20, But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.
- The Holy Spirit can pray through you for things you don’t know how or what to pray – Rom. 8:26, Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
- We speak divine mysteries straight to God – 1 Cor. 14:2, For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.
- We praise God in a heavenly language – Acts 2:11b, we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.
THE MORE YOU SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES THE MORE YOU CONTROL YOUR WHOLE BODY!
James 3:2, Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.
THE MORE YOU PRAY IN TONGUES THE MORE YOU ARE CONNECTING SPIRIT TO SPIRIT AND THE MORE YOU CANNOT SPEAK DEATH WITH YOUR FLESHLY TONGUE.
Be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak in other tongues often and always.
