Speaking with Tongues


Why speak with tongues - what are its uses and advantages?

Can all believers speak with tongues – or only some?

What about those having a hard time to receive the Holy Spirit – how can they be helped?

What if unbelievers hear tongues – will it turn them off, or turn them towards Christ?

How to receive: know, ask, believe, speak.

Three purposes: edify yourself, edify the church, sign to unbelievers.

Warfare tongues
Laughing tongues
Speaking to God
Give thanks
Speaking mysteries (plans)
Inwrought holiness
Interpretation of tongues: for counseling, preaching, personal edification and revelation

“But we’ve got the key to the city”

New tongues, tongues of men, tongues of angels, divers kinds of tongues, unknown tongue

Not necessary for salvation

Water baptism needn’t precede it

Unique to the baptism with the Holy Spirit

Voluntary: “I will…”

One way of praying in the Spirit (all praying in tongues is praying with your spirit in the Spirit, but not all praying in the Spirit is praying in an unknown tongue)

Commentary on I Cor.14

The baptism with the Holy Spirit is an overflow and ourpouring and inworking and further outflowing of Christ’s heavenly coronation blessing

It taps us into where we are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above principality and power and every name that is named

K. E. Hagin’s “Ten Reasons Why Every Believer Should Speak in Tongues”

“The Walk of Faith the Walk of Power”

Frank Houston – while painting the house. The Release of the Human Spirit.

Tongues in Finnish church

Tongues and interpretation at Carmen PCG and by two youth at youth sleepover

Tongues at highschool

Tongues on streets of Ipswich in front of McDonald’s

“I’m really doing this”

Thailand with Scott Donald

Kenneth E. Hagin – voice of healing revival

We don’t know why moves of God begin sometimes (but somebody may have been praying in tongues)

Trevor Chandler - How did he come to be here and get saved? There are more people praying in tongues now than ever.

“Let him pray that he may interpret”

Sign to unbelievers even when unbelievers don’t understand it

Speaking out loud yet unobtrusively in church

Speaking on the phone

Michael Barrett and Ben Radel

Jimmy Swaggart’s story of the lady in the church and the visiting dignitary

Muttering in tongues during the day, even in the company of others

Conversations in tongues – PCG youth at Bayabas, notes, like sitting around a fire, taxi

Demonstration of the gift of the discerning of spirits

Intimate language is not extensive

Repetitive – passing a zone

No need to get people to learn or copy. It’s not something you improve at over time.

People speaking in tongues who didn’t even know it existed or who weren’t prayed for

Like hitting the Refresh button

The restore system button

Stewart Gramenz – an hour a day (chores, walking, driving)

Frank Houston – speaking in tongues while being transported to meetings and around conversation

Meetings, ministries and churches birthed in Rodney Howard-Browne meetings

Staying close to Pentecost – close to the source

How to have Holy Ghost meetings

Outpouring meetings and functional meetings


They shall speak with new tongues

How much more shall your father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him

The promise of the Father

Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms hymns and spiritual songs

Be not drunk with wine wherein is excess but be filled with the Spirit
Promise is to you and your children

This is the refreshing

Endued with power from on high (yet He’d already given them certain power)

When this was noised abroad (tongues doesn’t turn unbelievers off)

While Peter yet spake – for we heard them speak with tongues and magnify God

When he saw that through laying on of hands the Holy Spirit was given

They spoke in tongues and prophesied

By signs and wonders of the Holy Ghost (Romans)

Not in word but in power

Demonstration of the Spirit and of power

The Lord working with them and confirming the word with signs following

Doeth he it…by the hearing of faith

Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophecy. Forbid not to speak with tongues

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy

The Spirit and the bride say

What the Spirit saith to the churches

Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water
