Key Points

  1. Joseph needed to communicate with people from nations around the world using their languages so God added a “hey” to His name, representing the breath of God (Psa. 81:5).

  2. Stammering lips and another tongue is about how God will speak to His people as the gift of tongues is used (Isa. 28:11; 1 Cor. 14:19-22).

  3.  The sign of the Spirit Birth is a sound—when someone receives the Holy Ghost the evidence is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (John 3:8; Acts 2:4)

  4. When we pray in tongues, the Spirit beareth witness that we are the children of God and helpeth our infirmities (Rom. 8:16, 26).

Lesson 2

“Speaking in Tongues – Part 2”

Key Points

  1. God’s picture of the tongue (lashown לָשׁוֹן) illustrates the reality that though the tongue is little, death and life are in the power of the tongue. When God fills us with the Holy Ghost and takes control of us, He takes control of our tongue (Prov. 18:21; James 3:1-10).

  2. When God creates, the Spirit of God moves and then He speaks (Gen. 1:1-3; 2 Cor. 5:7; Acts 2:1-4).

  3. A person is not born again, born of the Spirit, if they have not spoken in tongues. The sign of the Spirit birth is a sound and, just like in Genesis, when God moves He starts speaking (John 3:8; Mark 16:17; Acts 2:1-4).

  4. When we speak in tongues during prayer, the Spirit of God prays and we receive help and strength as we speak unto God (not men) for personal edification. To be in order in church, we should speak in tongues only to ourselves and to God unless there is an interpretation (Rom. 8:26; Jude 1:20; 1 Cor. 14:1-5, 27-28, 32).

  5. Gifts of the Spirit are given by God AFTER we receive the Holy Ghost. Though everyone speaks in tongues when they initially receiving the Holy Ghost (John 3:8; Acts 2:1-4), everyone does not have the gift of tongues (John 3:8; 1 Cor. 12:4-11, 30).

Lesson 3

“Speaking in Tongues & Prophecy”

August 5, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

  1. The gifts of the Spirit, including prophecy and divers kinds of tongues, are manifestations of the Spirit of God. They overlap and can be organized into categories (1 Cor. 12:7-10).
  2. Prophecy is speaking to men – they hear the message God is giving in their language – and it is for the edification, exhortation, or comfort of the church (1 Cor. 14:2-3). God’s picture of prophecy is about action coming (naba’ נבָאָ), about something God will show up and do.
  3. Speaking in tongues is speaking unto God (not men) and, if there is no interpretation, only the one speaking in tongues is edified (1 Cor. 14:2, 4).
  4. In church it is better to prophesy than to speak in tongues (unless there is an interpretation) so that the church may receive edifying. Whatever we do, we should want to edify the church (1 Cor. 14:1-5, 12, 26-28).
  5. If there is no interpretation, someone speaking in tongues in church should “keep silence, and let himself speak to himself, and to God,” which means bringing it down so the conversation is only between the person and God (1 Cor. 14:2, 26-28).
