  • things that something's getting
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:52.190
  • stirred up in you to say, "I
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:54.060
  • want to help others get the
  • 00:00:54.060 --> 00:00:55.280
  • basics and I want to make

  • disciples," because that is what
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:59.070
  • it is all about y'all.
  • 00:00:59.070 --> 00:01:00.080
  • That is what it is all about.
  • 00:01:00.080 --> 00:01:01.240
  • Jesus said, "Go into all the
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:03.080
  • world and make disciples.
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:05.150
  • And helping people get through
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:06.120
  • the basics is the initial way
  • 00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:08.170
  • and the best way to begin to
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:10.040
  • make some disciples.
  • 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:11.100
  • So, for all of those reasons,
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:12.240
  • I'm just really glad you tuned
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.290
  • in and today we're going to
  • 00:01:13.290 --> 00:01:15.240
  • continue talking about the Holy
  • 00:01:15.240 --> 00:01:17.110
  • Spirit.
  • 00:01:17.110 --> 00:01:18.080
  • Alright, so what we're doing is
  • 00:01:18.080 --> 00:01:19.270
  • I have been taking you through
  • 00:01:19.270 --> 00:01:21.070
  • this book, "Getting a Grip on
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:23.050
  • the Basics."
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:24.120
  • And this is a book I wrote 30
  • 00:01:24.120 --> 00:01:25.260
  • years ago.
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:26.240
  • I've been teaching this for
  • 00:01:26.240 --> 00:01:27.220
  • many, many decades.
  • 00:01:27.220 --> 00:01:28.290
  • I love the basics.
  • 00:01:28.290 --> 00:01:30.060
  • And over the years, as I
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:32.090
  • mentioned before, numerous
  • 00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:33.280
  • people had it put on their heart
  • 00:01:33.280 --> 00:01:35.050
  • by the Lord to translate this
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:36.110
  • into the language of their
  • 00:01:36.110 --> 00:01:38.110
  • nation.
  • 00:01:38.110 --> 00:01:38.280
  • So we have this book available
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:40.100

  • If you would like the book in

  • English, then we ask you to
  • 00:01:50.260 --> 00:01:52.170
  • purchase it from

  • local bookstore or from some

  • And go on with us as we do this
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.220
  • study.
  • 00:02:00.220 --> 00:02:01.090
  • Now, it's not required, you
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:02.130
  • don't have to have the workbook.
  • 00:02:02.130 --> 00:02:04.040
  • Really what you need is your
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:05.020
  • Bible and you need a notepad or
  • 00:02:05.020 --> 00:02:07.250
  • a journal and a hungry heart.
  • 00:02:07.250 --> 00:02:09.090
  • That's what we say every time
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:10.030
  • because really that's what it's
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:11.110
  • about.
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:11.270
  • Being hungry and thirsty for God
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:14.010
  • for his word as we jump into the
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:15.210
  • basics, okay?
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:17.210
  • So, how to be sure you are
  • 00:02:17.210 --> 00:02:19.070
  • filled with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:02:19.070 --> 00:02:21.020
  • So if you missed our last
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:23.020
  • episodes, I want to encourage
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:23.270
  • you to check them out at our
  • 00:02:23.270 --> 00:02:26.000
  • website thebasicswithbeth.tv and
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:28.000
  • be sure to DVR these so you can
  • 00:02:28.000 --> 00:02:29.210
  • review this, okay?
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:31.040
  • So, in terms of being filled
  • 00:02:31.040 --> 00:02:33.030
  • with the Holy Spirit, we talked
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:33.290
  • about that in our last episode,
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.010
  • but now, how to be sure you are
  • 00:02:35.010 --> 00:02:37.090
  • filled is going to be the
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:38.090
  • emphasis today.
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:39.090
  • And once you're filled with the
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:40.240
  • Holy Spirit listen, there's
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:41.240
  • going to be all kinds of things
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:42.250
  • you're going to notice.
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:43.220
  • We see the apostle Paul noticed
  • 00:02:43.220 --> 00:02:45.030
  • that the scales fell from his
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:46.250
  • eyes, we'll get into that.
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:48.000
  • You'll notice that God's Word
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:49.160
  • just comes alive to you in a
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:51.010
  • fresh way.
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:51.290
  • You'll notice a boldness to be a
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:53.230
  • witness for Christ.
  • 00:02:53.230 --> 00:02:54.260
  • You'll notice freedom in worship
  • 00:02:54.260 --> 00:02:57.080
  • and just talking about the Lord.
  • 00:02:57.080 --> 00:02:58.150
  • Just a freedom from your heart.
  • 00:02:58.150 --> 00:03:00.090
  • But one of the initial things,
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:02.150
  • one of the initial
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:03.050
  • manifestations, if you will,
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:04.090
  • that you will also notice and
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:06.020
  • you'll want to experience is
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:07.120
  • this ability to speak in a
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:09.230
  • prayer language.
  • 00:03:09.230 --> 00:03:11.020
  • To yield to the Holy Spirit and
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:12.170
  • to speak in a language he gives
  • 00:03:12.170 --> 00:03:14.200
  • you, the Bible calls it speaking
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:15.230
  • in tongues or a prayer language
  • 00:03:15.230 --> 00:03:17.280
  • or a spiritual language or a
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:19.270
  • heavenly language.
  • 00:03:19.270 --> 00:03:21.010
  • Lots of ways to describe it.
  • 00:03:21.010 --> 00:03:22.120
  • And so, we're going to look at
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:23.160
  • what does the Bible say about
  • 00:03:23.160 --> 00:03:24.190
  • this subject.
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:25.140
  • Specifically what the Bible
  • 00:03:25.140 --> 00:03:26.110
  • calls it speaking in tongues.
  • 00:03:26.110 --> 00:03:28.000
  • What in the world is speaking in
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:30.220
  • tongues, okay?
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:31.230
  • And why would you want to?
  • 00:03:31.230 --> 00:03:33.290
  • And why would you want to yield
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:35.080
  • to the spirit to experience this
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.290
  • benefit of being filled with the
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:39.050
  • Holy Spirit?
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:39.270
  • Okay?
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:40.160
  • So, with that in mind, let's
  • 00:03:40.160 --> 00:03:41.130
  • look at the book of Acts, of
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:43.230
  • course that's where the Holy
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:44.190
  • Spirit was poured out and we see
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:45.150
  • people began to speak in this
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.050
  • language, this other tongues
  • 00:03:47.050 --> 00:03:48.180
  • language.
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:49.150
  • Let's look at every account in
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:51.030
  • the book of Acts where people
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:52.150
  • were filled with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:54.150
  • and let's ask the question, what
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:56.180
  • happened?
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:57.100
  • Alright, let's see what we can
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:03:58.070
  • discern about Bible pattern.
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:04:00.050
  • What happens to people when
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:01.100
  • they're filled with the Spirit?
  • 00:04:01.100 --> 00:04:02.140
  • Acts 2:4, okay?
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:04.130
  • Acts 2:4, "And they were all
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:07.010
  • filled with the Holy Spirit and
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:09.060
  • began to speak with other
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:11.040
  • tongues, as the Spirit gave them
  • 00:04:11.040 --> 00:04:12.210
  • utterance."
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:13.180
  • So, in the very first account of
  • 00:04:13.180 --> 00:04:14.260
  • people being filled with the
  • 00:04:14.260 --> 00:04:16.000
  • Holy Spirit, what was the first
  • 00:04:16.000 --> 00:04:18.050
  • evidence?
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:18.260
  • What was the first thing we see?
  • 00:04:18.260 --> 00:04:19.290
  • They all were filled with the
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:22.130
  • Holy Spirit and apparently they
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:24.230
  • all began to speak with other
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:27.060
  • tongues.
  • 00:04:27.060 --> 00:04:27.250
  • So, speaking in tongues was the
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.000
  • first evidence being filled with
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.160
  • the spirit in Acts 2:4.
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:32.060
  • What about the next account in
  • 00:04:32.060 --> 00:04:34.070
  • the Bible?
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:34.260
  • Let's look at Acts 10.
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.020
  • In Acts chapter 10, we see this.
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:39.090
  • Peter was preaching to Cornelius
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:40.170
  • to the Gentiles.
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:42.060
  • "While Peter was still speaking
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.120
  • these words, the Holy Spirit
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:45.130
  • fell on all those who heard the
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.250
  • word.
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:47.240
  • And those of the circumcision
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:49.090
  • who believed were astonished,
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:51.030
  • and as many as came with Peter,
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:52.170
  • because the gift of the Holy
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:53.210
  • Spirit had been poured out on
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:55.160
  • the Gentiles also.
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:57.140
  • For they heard them speak with
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.000
  • tongues and magnify God."
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:01.090
  • So, in this account, what
  • 00:05:01.090 --> 00:05:02.260
  • happened?
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:03.150
  • When Peter preached the gospel,
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:05.100
  • they believed the gospel and
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:06.100
  • then the Holy Spirit came upon
  • 00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:07.220
  • them and what did they do?
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.070
  • What happened?
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:09.250
  • They spoke with tongues and
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.070
  • magnified God.
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:12.160
  • So, now we see two things.
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:14.030
  • So far, the common denominator,
  • 00:05:14.030 --> 00:05:15.240
  • Acts 2, Acts 10 they spoke in
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:18.030
  • tongues.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:18.210
  • But then we also see they
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:19.250
  • magnified the Lord.
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:21.080
  • Let's look at Acts 19.
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:23.080
  • Another account in the New
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:24.140
  • Testament where they were filled
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:26.020
  • with the spirit.
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:27.210
  • When Paul laid hands on them,
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:28.290
  • the Ephesians in Acts 19, "the
  • 00:05:28.290 --> 00:05:30.220
  • Holy Spirit came upon them and
  • 00:05:30.220 --> 00:05:33.190
  • they spoke with tongues and
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:35.180
  • prophesied."
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.250
  • So, what was the initial
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.080
  • evidence?
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:39.000
  • What happened when these guys
  • 00:05:39.000 --> 00:05:40.030
  • were filled with the spirit in
  • 00:05:40.030 --> 00:05:41.060
  • Acts 19, the Ephesians?
  • 00:05:41.060 --> 00:05:43.240
  • Well, the Holy spirit came upon
  • 00:05:43.240 --> 00:05:45.270
  • them and they spoke with tongues
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:48.230
  • and prophesied.
  • 00:05:48.230 --> 00:05:50.000
  • So, now the common denominator
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:51.120
  • in all three accounts is what?
  • 00:05:51.120 --> 00:05:52.170
  • They spoke in tongues.
  • 00:05:52.170 --> 00:05:54.070
  • In every account where they got
  • 00:05:54.070 --> 00:05:55.100
  • filled with the Spirit they
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:56.220
  • spoke in tongues and they
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.050
  • magnified the Lord in some cases
  • 00:05:58.050 --> 00:05:59.280
  • and they prophesied in some
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:01.280
  • cases.
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:02.170
  • Let's look at one other account
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:05.010
  • where the Bible tells us people
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:06.120
  • got filled with the Spirit.
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:07.210
  • And this one is an interesting
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:08.140
  • one and I want to take a few
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:09.130
  • minutes just to go over it with
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:10.120
  • you.
  • 00:06:10.120 --> 00:06:11.010
  • This is Acts chapter 8.
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:12.180
  • Okay, so if you've got your
  • 00:06:12.180 --> 00:06:13.080
  • Bibles open up to Acts 8 and I
  • 00:06:13.090 --> 00:06:16.090
  • want to just dig into this one.
  • 00:06:16.090 --> 00:06:18.000
  • Because if we can prove from the
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:20.090
  • Bible that every account where
  • 00:06:20.090 --> 00:06:22.150
  • people got filled with the Holy
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:23.170
  • Spirit they spoke in tongues,
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:24.280
  • that's the Bible pattern, then
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:26.080
  • you and I can absolutely expect
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:28.190
  • and should expect that benefit
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:30.080
  • that when I'm filled with the
  • 00:06:30.080 --> 00:06:31.050
  • Spirit I'm going to have this
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:32.070
  • ability in my life relationship
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:34.140
  • with the Lord to speak in a
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:35.170
  • language, a heavenly language,
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.090
  • and we'll see it later one of
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:38.240
  • the primary benefits of it is in
  • 00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:40.090
  • your prayer life, we'll see that
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:42.100
  • benefit, okay?
  • 00:06:42.100 --> 00:06:43.180
  • So, let's look at one other
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:44.200
  • account, Acts 8.
  • 00:06:44.200 --> 00:06:46.020
  • This is the other account in the
  • 00:06:46.020 --> 00:06:48.170
  • book of Acts where somebody got
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:49.170
  • filled with the Spirit, what
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:51.070
  • happened?
  • 00:06:51.070 --> 00:06:51.260
  • Okay, Acts 8 we'll start with
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:53.260
  • verse 4.
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:54.130
  • "Therefore those who were
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:55.210
  • scattered went everywhere
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:57.110
  • preaching the word.
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:58.100
  • And Philip went down to the city
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:00.140
  • of Samaria and preached Christ
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:02.090
  • to them.
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:03.120
  • And multitudes with one accord
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.140
  • heeded the things which Philip
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:05.260
  • spoke, hearing and seeing the
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:07.200
  • miracles that he did."
  • 00:07:07.200 --> 00:07:09.150
  • Man, supernatural things were
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:10.170
  • happening.
  • 00:07:10.170 --> 00:07:11.030
  • This was a revival crusade.
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:12.270
  • Philip was preaching it up,
  • 00:07:12.270 --> 00:07:14.030
  • preaching the gospel.
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.040
  • People are believing and there's
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:15.270
  • miracles happening.
  • 00:07:15.270 --> 00:07:18.060
  • Verse 7, "For unclean spirits
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:19.200
  • crying with a loud voice, came
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:21.140
  • out of many who were possessed;
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:22.190
  • and many who were paralyzed and
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:24.050
  • lame were healed and there was a
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:25.080
  • great joy in this city."
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:27.130
  • Man, it was a, this was a happy
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:28.260
  • crusade.
  • 00:07:28.260 --> 00:07:29.240
  • Good things were happening.
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:31.120
  • And then verse 9, "But there was
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:34.210
  • a certain man called Simon, who
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:37.110
  • previously practices sorcery in
  • 00:07:37.110 --> 00:07:39.030
  • this city."
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:39.290
  • He was not a believer.
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:40.280
  • He was dealing in the occult,
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.200
  • dealing in non-Jesus spiritual
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:46.040
  • things.
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:47.000
  • "And he astonished the people of
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:49.060
  • Samaria claiming he was someone
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:51.050
  • great to whom they all gave heed
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:53.180
  • to the least to the greatest
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:54.180
  • saying, 'This man is the great
  • 00:07:54.180 --> 00:07:56.040
  • power of God.'"
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:56.280
  • So, Simon was
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:57.150
  • loving the adulation.
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:07:59.050
  • Loving the, you know, adoration
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:01.240
  • of the people in the city.
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:03.000
  • "They heeded him because he had
  • 00:08:03.000 --> 00:08:05.210
  • astonished them with sorceries
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:07.190
  • for a long time.
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:09.170
  • But when they believed Philip as
  • 00:08:10.080 --> 00:08:13.080
  • he preached the things
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:14.110
  • concerning the kingdom of God in
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:15.200
  • the name of Jesus, both men and
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:18.220
  • women were baptized."
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.130
  • So now the city of Samaria, this
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:22.040
  • is a big city revival and
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:23.120
  • they're listening to Philip now
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:24.120
  • and they're believing the things
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:25.280
  • he's saying.
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.000
  • Verse 13, "Then, Simon, this guy
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:29.080
  • Simon himself also believed and
  • 00:08:29.140 --> 00:08:32.140
  • was baptized and he continued
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:34.100
  • with Philip and was amazed
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:36.110
  • seeing the miracles and the
  • 00:08:36.110 --> 00:08:37.270
  • signs which he had done."
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:39.290
  • Well, Simon had bewitched the
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:41.190
  • whole city with his sorceries
  • 00:08:41.190 --> 00:08:42.260
  • but now he's amazed when he sees
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:44.260
  • what's happening through Philip,
  • 00:08:44.260 --> 00:08:46.240
  • the evangelists and the miracles
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.240
  • and the signs.
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:49.140
  • So, what did Simon do?
  • 00:08:49.140 --> 00:08:50.200
  • Look at verse 14.
  • 00:08:50.200 --> 00:08:52.000
  • Well, let's keep reading.
  • 00:08:52.000 --> 00:08:53.080
  • Verse 14, "So when the Apostles
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:54.230
  • who were in Jerusalem heard that
  • 00:08:54.230 --> 00:08:55.290
  • Samaria had received the word of
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:57.280
  • God, they sent Peter and John
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.230
  • down who when they come down,
  • 00:08:59.230 --> 00:09:01.180
  • prayed for them, the Samaritans,
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:04.000
  • that they might receive the Holy
  • 00:09:04.000 --> 00:09:05.080
  • Spirit.
  • 00:09:05.080 --> 00:09:06.060
  • For as yet he had fallen upon
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:09.020
  • none of them."
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.030
  • They were born of the spirit but
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.120
  • up until this point the Holy
  • 00:09:11.120 --> 00:09:12.270
  • Spirit had fallen upon none of
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:14.070
  • them.
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:14.270
  • We know they were born of the
  • 00:09:14.270 --> 00:09:15.180
  • spirit because they believed
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.170
  • Philip's preaching when he
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:17.180
  • preached Christ.
  • 00:09:17.180 --> 00:09:18.130
  • But the Holy Spirit had fallen
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:19.130
  • upon none of them.
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:21.100
  • They'd only been baptized in the
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:22.160
  • name of the Lord Jesus.
  • 00:09:22.160 --> 00:09:24.070
  • Then the disciples laid hands on
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:25.250
  • them and they received the Holy
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:28.010
  • Spirit.
  • 00:09:28.010 --> 00:09:29.060
  • Now, get this, verse 18, "When
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:30.270
  • Simon saw that through the
  • 00:09:30.270 --> 00:09:33.010
  • laying on of the Apostle's
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:34.060
  • hands, the Holy Spirit was given
  • 00:09:34.060 --> 00:09:36.230
  • he offered them money, saying,
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:38.180
  • 'Give me this power also that
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:40.180
  • anyone that I laid hands may
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:43.180
  • receive the Holy Spirit.' "
  • 00:09:43.180 --> 00:09:45.140
  • Simon, the sorcerer sees
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:47.120
  • something he's not seen before.
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:48.290
  • To the point that he says, "I
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:50.040
  • want this power, give me this
  • 00:09:50.040 --> 00:09:51.090
  • power to do this.
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:53.020
  • I'll give you money for it."
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:54.220
  • Then, "Peter said to him, 'Your
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:56.100
  • money perish with you, because
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:58.010
  • you thought that the gift of God
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:09:59.060
  • could be purchased
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:09:59.230
  • with money,'"
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:00.230
  • verse 21 is the key, okay, I
  • 00:10:00.230 --> 00:10:02.090
  • know it's a long passage but
  • 00:10:02.090 --> 00:10:03.130
  • verse 21's the key.
  • 00:10:03.130 --> 00:10:04.200
  • "You have neither part nor lot
  • 00:10:04.200 --> 00:10:07.000
  • in this matter for your heart is
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:09.250
  • not right in the sight of God."
  • 00:10:09.250 --> 00:10:11.200
  • Okay, so in this story, this
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:13.200
  • whole story of the Samaritans
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:15.140
  • getting filled with Spirit,
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:16.210
  • okay, Philip preaches Christ.
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:18.200
  • They get born of the spirit.
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:20.030
  • All kinds of miracles are
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:20.210
  • happening, city wide crusade.
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:22.070
  • Simon the sorcerer also
  • 00:10:22.070 --> 00:10:23.280
  • believes.
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:24.260
  • He hears Philip's preaching and
  • 00:10:24.260 --> 00:10:26.010
  • believes as well.
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:27.020
  • But then the disciples come down
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:29.230
  • to pray for the whole city to be
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:31.040
  • filled with the Spirit.
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:32.170
  • Up until now the Holy Spirit is
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.180
  • coming upon none of them.
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.000
  • So, the disciples come, this
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:36.180
  • whole group gets filled with the
  • 00:10:36.180 --> 00:10:37.290
  • Spirit and when they got filled
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:39.190
  • with the Spirit Simon the
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.080
  • sorcerer saw something.
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.170
  • Well, he'd already seen a bunch
  • 00:10:43.170 --> 00:10:44.150
  • of miracles that Philip was
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:45.290
  • doing.
  • 00:10:45.290 --> 00:10:46.220
  • He never offered Philip any
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:47.170
  • money and said give me that
  • 00:10:47.170 --> 00:10:49.030
  • power so I can do miracles.
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:50.260
  • But something happened when
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:52.200
  • these people got filled with the
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:53.220
  • spirit that Simon saw to the
  • 00:10:53.220 --> 00:10:55.120
  • point that Simon said, "Give me
  • 00:10:55.120 --> 00:10:57.200
  • this power.
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:10:58.160
  • I want to lay hands on people
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:10:59.190
  • and I want to see this thing
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:01.090
  • happen."
  • 00:11:01.090 --> 00:11:02.120
  • And Peter rebuked him and said,
  • 00:11:02.120 --> 00:11:03.170
  • "Simon, you're a baby Christian,
  • 00:11:03.170 --> 00:11:05.120
  • must be apparently.
  • 00:11:05.120 --> 00:11:06.200
  • Simon, your money
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:08.050
  • perish with you.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.170
  • You thought you could buy the
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:10.150
  • gift of God, where's your heart?
  • 00:11:10.150 --> 00:11:11.250
  • Your heart is not right in this
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:14.100
  • regard.
  • 00:11:14.100 --> 00:11:15.020
  • And then Peter said, "You have
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:15.270
  • neither part nor lot in this
  • 00:11:15.270 --> 00:11:18.180
  • matter."
  • 00:11:18.180 --> 00:11:19.250
  • Keyword, matter.
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:20.200
  • Okay?
  • 00:11:20.200 --> 00:11:22.020
  • Because in this passage when
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:24.130
  • they got filled with the Holy
  • 00:11:24.130 --> 00:11:25.060
  • Spirit it's not clear 100% clear
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:27.170
  • at first glance that when they
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:29.030
  • were filled with the Spirit they
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.040
  • spoke in tongues and that's what
  • 00:11:30.040 --> 00:11:31.020
  • we're talking about.
  • 00:11:31.020 --> 00:11:32.050
  • But if you dig a little deeper,
  • 00:11:32.050 --> 00:11:34.140
  • use some basic Bible study tools
  • 00:11:34.140 --> 00:11:36.080
  • you can discern what this means.
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:38.080
  • You can rightly divide the word
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:39.020
  • of truth.
  • 00:11:39.020 --> 00:11:40.000
  • Well, the word, "matter," in the
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:41.130
  • Greek language is the Greek word
  • 00:11:41.130 --> 00:11:43.060
  • of logos.
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:44.070
  • Which is almost always in every
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:46.000
  • other account in the Bible
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:47.010
  • translated as, "word," or,
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:49.260
  • "words."
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:51.150
  • So, if you read this passage in
  • 00:11:51.150 --> 00:11:53.040
  • that context when Peter said to
  • 00:11:53.040 --> 00:11:54.190
  • Simon, "Your heart's not right
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:56.210
  • Simon you have neither part nor
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:58.020
  • lot in these words."
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:01.200
  • What kind of words?
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:02.150
  • When they got filled
  • 00:12:02.150 --> 00:12:03.050
  • with the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:04.170
  • something so profound
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:05.150
  • happened that Simon had never
  • 00:12:05.150 --> 00:12:06.180
  • seen but it was so profound he
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:08.090
  • wanted to have the power even
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:09.140
  • though his heart was wrong and
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:10.170
  • his motives were wrong none the
  • 00:12:10.170 --> 00:12:12.010
  • less he saw something.
  • 00:12:12.010 --> 00:12:13.040
  • What did he see?
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:13.280
  • He saw these people speak words.
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.160
  • And Peter said, "You don't have
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:16.150
  • any part in these words, Simon."
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:18.110
  • So again, what are we doing?
  • 00:12:18.110 --> 00:12:19.140
  • We're just proving
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.030
  • from the Bible
  • 00:12:20.030 --> 00:12:21.050
  • that in every account in the
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:22.110
  • book of Acts when people got
  • 00:12:22.110 --> 00:12:23.260
  • filled with the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:25.020
  • they spoke in tongues.
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:26.220
  • Which is the pattern that for
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:28.010
  • you and I to go, "Okay, Lord if
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:29.270
  • that's the pattern, I don't want
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:31.090
  • to miss out on anything you have
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:33.020
  • for me.
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:34.000
  • And so, this heavenly prayer
  • 00:12:34.000 --> 00:12:35.040
  • language, this ability to speak
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:36.070
  • in tongues, what is it and how
  • 00:12:36.070 --> 00:12:38.280
  • do I yield of the Holy Spirit to
  • 00:12:38.280 --> 00:12:40.280
  • experience it?
  • 00:12:40.280 --> 00:12:41.210
  • Okay?
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:42.100
  • So, for the rest of our time,
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:43.110
  • let's talk about that, okay?
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:44.200
  • Does that make sense?
  • 00:12:44.200 --> 00:12:46.220
  • Let's talk about the,
  • 00:12:46.220 --> 00:12:47.280
  • different kinds of tongues.
  • 00:12:47.280 --> 00:12:49.100
  • The Bible does describe
  • 00:12:49.100 --> 00:12:50.230
  • different kinds of tongues and
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:51.290
  • so let's take a look at that.
  • 00:12:51.290 --> 00:12:54.000
  • In 1 Corinthians 13:1 he says,
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:56.210
  • "Though I speak with the tongues
  • 00:12:56.210 --> 00:12:57.220
  • of men and of angels, and have
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:13:00.150
  • not love, I'm sounding brass and
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:02.120
  • clanging gong."
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.160
  • But he does let us know there
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:04.100
  • are these tongues of men, human
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:06.130
  • languages and of angels, okay?
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:09.190
  • Interesting.
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:10.110
  • Then we know in 1 Corinthians
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:12.160
  • 12:10 it says to another
  • 00:13:12.160 --> 00:13:15.000
  • concerning the gifts of the Holy
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:15.270
  • Spirit.
  • 00:13:15.270 --> 00:13:16.200
  • It says, "To another the working
  • 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:17.220
  • of miracles, to another the gift
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:19.040
  • of prophecy, to another the
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:20.220
  • discerning of spirits, to
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:22.000
  • another different kinds of
  • 00:13:22.000 --> 00:13:24.140
  • tongues."
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:25.180
  • These are spiritual gifts that
  • 00:13:25.180 --> 00:13:26.100
  • are given and he lets us know
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:27.170
  • there are different kinds of
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:28.160
  • tongues.
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:29.200
  • Now listen, we know there are
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:30.270
  • different kinds of languages.
  • 00:13:30.270 --> 00:13:32.220
  • Because In the book of Acts,
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.100
  • Acts chapter 2, little rabbit
  • 00:13:34.100 --> 00:13:35.260
  • trail here, when they got filled
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.090
  • with the Holy Spirit they spoke
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:38.220
  • in other tongues and people that
  • 00:13:38.240 --> 00:13:41.240
  • were watching around about said,
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:43.100
  • "Hey, we're hearing these people
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:45.220
  • speak the praises of God in
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:47.140
  • languages we understand but they
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:48.190
  • don't understand."
  • 00:13:48.190 --> 00:13:49.240
  • So they were speaking known
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:50.250
  • languages.
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:51.290
  • But then we can also see from
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.060
  • the Bible there's tongues of
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:13:54.060
  • men, there's tongues of angels,
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:55.070
  • there's different kinds of
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:56.030
  • tongues and then in
  • 00:13:56.030 --> 00:13:58.210
  • 1 Corinthians 12:28 it calls
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:00.040
  • tongues the diversities of
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:02.280
  • tongues or the varieties of
  • 00:14:02.280 --> 00:14:04.070
  • tongues.
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:05.160
  • In other words, all speaking in
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:06.230
  • tongues is not the same.
  • 00:14:06.230 --> 00:14:08.050
  • That's what I'm trying to say.
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:09.100
  • Took the long way but we got
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:10.120
  • there.
  • 00:14:10.120 --> 00:14:11.090
  • All speaking in tongues isn't
  • 00:14:11.090 --> 00:14:13.160
  • the same.
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:14.180
  • There's different languages
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:15.270
  • there are different kinds,
  • 00:14:15.270 --> 00:14:17.040
  • diversities.
  • 00:14:17.040 --> 00:14:18.070
  • They're all from the Holy
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:19.050
  • Spirit.
  • 00:14:19.050 --> 00:14:20.040
  • So, when one person speaks in
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:21.120
  • tongues it will sound different
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:22.090
  • then when another person does.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.140
  • Oftentimes when we speak in
  • 00:14:23.140 --> 00:14:25.000
  • tongues it is a known language.
  • 00:14:25.000 --> 00:14:26.280
  • It is a language that someone on
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:27.260
  • earth knows and would know the
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:29.150
  • interpretation of the
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:30.110
  • translation of.
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:31.210
  • At other times we're speaking a
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:32.290
  • spiritual language that perhaps
  • 00:14:32.290 --> 00:14:34.070
  • maybe no one on earth would know
  • 00:14:34.070 --> 00:14:35.170
  • the language.
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:36.070
  • Maybe It's the tongues of
  • 00:14:36.070 --> 00:14:36.290
  • angels.
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:37.260
  • Maybe it's a spiritual language
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:39.070
  • there would be no earthly
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:40.040
  • translation for.
  • 00:14:40.040 --> 00:14:41.110
  • Other than by the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:43.110
  • okay.
  • 00:14:43.110 --> 00:14:44.120
  • So, what's the purpose with all
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:46.240
  • of that said.
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:47.190
  • Why would you want to speak in
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:49.000
  • tongues.
  • 00:14:49.000 --> 00:14:49.170
  • What's the purpose?
  • 00:14:49.170 --> 00:14:50.150
  • Here's what the Bible says about
  • 00:14:50.150 --> 00:14:51.280
  • this idea of speaking in tongues
  • 00:14:52.040 --> 00:14:55.040
  • and why you'd want to and when
  • 00:14:55.040 --> 00:14:57.130
  • you'd want to it again.
  • 00:14:57.130 --> 00:14:58.260
  • And understanding on these
  • 00:14:58.260 --> 00:15:00.060
  • diversities, these different
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:01.270
  • kinds of tongues and in fact,
  • 00:15:01.270 --> 00:15:03.030
  • two of the different kinds are
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:05.060
  • these.
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:05.230
  • So, let's talk about this.
  • 00:15:05.230 --> 00:15:06.140
  • There's the public manifestation
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:08.070
  • of speaking in tongues.
  • 00:15:08.070 --> 00:15:09.140
  • And there's the private
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:10.260
  • manifestation or use of speaking
  • 00:15:10.260 --> 00:15:12.250
  • in tongues.
  • 00:15:12.250 --> 00:15:13.180
  • And I think when it comes to
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:14.120
  • this subject sometimes where the
  • 00:15:14.120 --> 00:15:15.200
  • confusion is people think that
  • 00:15:15.200 --> 00:15:17.240
  • all speaking in tongues is
  • 00:15:17.240 --> 00:15:18.180
  • public and then they say, "Don't
  • 00:15:18.180 --> 00:15:20.140
  • ever do it.
  • 00:15:20.140 --> 00:15:21.050
  • Don't anybody speak in tongues
  • 00:15:21.050 --> 00:15:21.240
  • publicly.
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:22.170
  • We should not do this."
  • 00:15:22.170 --> 00:15:23.120
  • And so, then they sort of throw
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:24.240
  • the baby out with the bath
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:25.260
  • water.
  • 00:15:25.260 --> 00:15:26.270
  • So, what about speaking in
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:28.230
  • tongues in public and what about
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:30.100
  • speaking in tongues in private
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:31.280
  • like in your prayer life?
  • 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:33.050
  • Let's look at that, okay?
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:35.020
  • So, look at a couple of verses
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:36.290
  • here where it talks about
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:38.000
  • speaking in tongues and we're
  • 00:15:38.000 --> 00:15:38.270
  • just going to ask the question
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:40.050
  • is this passage talking about
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:41.170
  • public or private manifestations
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:44.180
  • of speaking in tongues, okay?
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:46.180
  • Let's look at this first one,
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:47.080
  • 1 Corinthians 12:28, okay, so it
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:50.080
  • says here, "And in the church
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:52.080
  • God is appointed, first of all,
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:54.100
  • apostles, second prophets, third
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:55.240
  • teachers, then workers of
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:57.060
  • miracles, also those having the
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:59.050
  • gifts of healing and those able
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:01.200
  • to help others, those with
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:03.010
  • administrations, those speaking
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:05.230
  • in different kinds of tongues.
  • 00:16:05.230 --> 00:16:08.130
  • Are all apostles?
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:09.180
  • No.
  • 00:16:09.180 --> 00:16:10.130
  • Are all prophets?
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:11.090
  • No.
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:11.280
  • Are all teachers?
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:12.180
  • No.
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:13.130
  • Do all work miracles?
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.170
  • No.
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:15.050
  • Do all have the gifts of
  • 00:16:15.050 --> 00:16:16.130
  • healing?
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:17.000
  • No.
  • 00:16:17.000 --> 00:16:17.210
  • Do all speak in tongues?"
  • 00:16:17.210 --> 00:16:19.280
  • The implied answer?
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:20.180
  • No.
  • 00:16:20.180 --> 00:16:21.180
  • "Do all interpret?"
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:22.230
  • Implied answer?
  • 00:16:22.230 --> 00:16:23.190
  • No.
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:24.070
  • So, do all speak in tongues in
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:26.180
  • this context, the answer, the
  • 00:16:26.180 --> 00:16:28.130
  • implied answer is no.
  • 00:16:28.130 --> 00:16:29.240
  • But the question is where do all
  • 00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:32.180
  • not speak in tongues?
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:34.060
  • In public.
  • 00:16:34.060 --> 00:16:35.210
  • In public not everyone will have
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:37.100
  • the public gift of tongues.
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.270
  • And we know that he's talking
  • 00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:40.020
  • about the public demonstration
  • 00:16:40.020 --> 00:16:41.220
  • of speaking in tongues because
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:42.220
  • he says, "In the church God has
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:45.110
  • appointed."
  • 00:16:45.110 --> 00:16:46.130
  • So, not everyone in the church
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:48.090
  • is going to be speaking in
  • 00:16:48.090 --> 00:16:49.020
  • tongues publicly.
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.130
  • But we're going to see as we go
  • 00:16:50.130 --> 00:16:51.180
  • through this, everyone filled
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:53.280
  • with the spirit can yield to the
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:56.060
  • spirit and speak in tongues
  • 00:16:56.060 --> 00:16:57.260
  • privately in your prayer life.
  • 00:16:57.260 --> 00:17:00.210
  • In your relationship with the
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:01.090
  • Lord, okay?
  • 00:17:01.090 --> 00:17:02.110
  • So, let's look at another one.
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:03.230
  • 1 Corinthians 14:2, "He who
  • 00:17:03.230 --> 00:17:06.160
  • speaks in a tongue does not
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.260
  • speak to men but to God for no
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:10.250
  • one understands him, however, in
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:12.240
  • the spirit he speaks mysteries."
  • 00:17:12.240 --> 00:17:15.170
  • He who speaks in a tongue does
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:16.240
  • not speak to men but speaks to
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:18.010
  • God.
  • 00:17:18.010 --> 00:17:18.220
  • Public and private.
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:19.250
  • Private.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:21.050
  • In your private prayer life,
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.230
  • you're not speaking in tongues
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:23.190
  • for men's benefit.
  • 00:17:23.190 --> 00:17:24.170
  • You're speaking in tongues
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:25.070
  • straight up to the Lord.
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:26.140
  • It's a direct hotline from your
  • 00:17:26.140 --> 00:17:28.050
  • heart, your spirit in the
  • 00:17:28.050 --> 00:17:29.180
  • language he gives you, straight
  • 00:17:29.180 --> 00:17:31.100
  • to his heart.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.070
  • You're praying directly to the
  • 00:17:32.070 --> 00:17:33.160
  • Lord, privately when you speak
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:35.080
  • in tongues this way.
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:36.080
  • 1 Corinthians 14:14 and verse 15
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:39.110
  • and I love this one because
  • 00:17:39.110 --> 00:17:40.260
  • sometimes people say, "Well, no
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:42.020
  • there's only public speaking in
  • 00:17:42.020 --> 00:17:44.010
  • tongues.
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:44.230
  • It's everyone in the church, the
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:46.080
  • body of Christ, won't speak in
  • 00:17:46.080 --> 00:17:47.250
  • tongues and there's only the
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:49.140
  • public and it's not for
  • 00:17:49.140 --> 00:17:50.150
  • everyone," and so on.
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:52.120
  • And you can almost buy that
  • 00:17:52.120 --> 00:17:55.020
  • except for some of these verses
  • 00:17:55.020 --> 00:17:55.230
  • we're looking at and especially
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:57.090
  • this one.
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:58.070
  • Okay?
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:17:58.220
  • So, public and private.
  • 00:17:58.220 --> 00:18:01.140
  • 1 Corinthians 14:14, "For if I
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:03.140
  • pray," now he's not talking
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:05.210
  • about speaking in tongues, he's
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:06.270
  • talking about prayer.
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:08.020
  • "If I pray in a tongue my spirit
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:11.200
  • prays, but my understanding, my
  • 00:18:11.200 --> 00:18:14.200
  • mind is unfruitful.
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:16.010
  • What is the conclusion then?
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.160
  • I will pray with the spirit in
  • 00:18:17.160 --> 00:18:20.110
  • tongues, and I will also pray
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:22.210
  • with the understanding in
  • 00:18:22.210 --> 00:18:23.160
  • English, or your native
  • 00:18:23.160 --> 00:18:24.270
  • language.
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:25.180
  • I will sing with the spirit and
  • 00:18:25.180 --> 00:18:27.150
  • I will also sing with the
  • 00:18:27.150 --> 00:18:28.160
  • understanding."
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:29.190
  • So, here's he's talking about
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:30.160
  • what?
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:31.090
  • Prayer.
  • 00:18:31.090 --> 00:18:31.290
  • And also your worship life and
  • 00:18:31.290 --> 00:18:33.060
  • singing.
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:33.250
  • You can sing in tongues.
  • 00:18:33.250 --> 00:18:34.290
  • You can sing in the spirit.
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:35.280
  • You can pray in the spirit, pray
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:37.200
  • in tongues.
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:38.220
  • And it's not talking about a
  • 00:18:38.220 --> 00:18:39.210
  • public message.
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:40.230
  • This is specifically, definitely
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:42.180
  • private, private manifestation
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:44.150
  • or demonstration of yielding to
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:46.180
  • the Holy Spirit and speaking in
  • 00:18:46.180 --> 00:18:48.070
  • this language.
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:48.290
  • Okay?
  • 00:18:48.290 --> 00:18:49.200
  • What do we do?
  • 00:18:49.200 --> 00:18:50.060
  • We're just helping you to prove
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:51.160
  • and see biblically, from the
  • 00:18:51.160 --> 00:18:53.260
  • basic level this whole thing
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:55.260
  • about speaking in tongues.
  • 00:18:55.260 --> 00:18:57.260
  • 1 Corinthians 14:26, "How is it
  • 00:18:57.260 --> 00:19:00.210
  • then, brethren?
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:01.230
  • When you come together each one
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:03.010
  • of you has a psalm, a teaching,
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:04.170
  • a tongue, a revelation, and
  • 00:19:04.170 --> 00:19:06.170
  • interpretation.
  • 00:19:06.170 --> 00:19:07.100
  • Let all things be done for
  • 00:19:07.100 --> 00:19:08.190
  • edifying."
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:09.240
  • So, when you come together as
  • 00:19:09.240 --> 00:19:10.230
  • small group, or a prayer group
  • 00:19:10.230 --> 00:19:12.070
  • or in a small church setting.
  • 00:19:12.070 --> 00:19:13.250
  • It stays y'all come together and
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:14.240
  • you bring something.
  • 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:15.290
  • And so, is this public or
  • 00:19:15.290 --> 00:19:17.060
  • private?
  • 00:19:17.060 --> 00:19:18.040
  • This idea where he mentions
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:18.240
  • somebody brings a tongue?
  • 00:19:18.240 --> 00:19:20.190
  • What is this?
  • 00:19:20.190 --> 00:19:21.140
  • Public.
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:22.180
  • He's talking about a public
  • 00:19:22.180 --> 00:19:23.050
  • setting.
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:24.000
  • And everybody brings something
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:24.200
  • to the potluck so to speak.
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:26.120
  • Okay, what about 1 Corinthians
  • 00:19:26.120 --> 00:19:27.200
  • 14:4?
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.070
  • "He who speaks in a tongue
  • 00:19:29.070 --> 00:19:31.000
  • edifies himself, but he who
  • 00:19:31.000 --> 00:19:34.000
  • prophesies edifies the church."
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:36.250
  • Public or private?
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:38.060
  • Private.
  • 00:19:38.060 --> 00:19:39.080
  • Because he says if you speak in
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:40.080
  • a tongue, you're edifying
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:41.040
  • yourself, it's for your benefit.
  • 00:19:41.040 --> 00:19:42.150
  • You gotta build up and you'll
  • 00:19:42.150 --> 00:19:43.030
  • see this later you gotta build
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:44.090
  • up and charge up your inner man.
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:46.100
  • Your spirit man gets built up as
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:48.190
  • you pray in this spirit in other
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:49.280
  • tongues.
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:50.220
  • But he who prophesies, blesses
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:52.030
  • the church, that's public.
  • 00:19:52.030 --> 00:19:53.220
  • And a little rabbit trail again,
  • 00:19:53.220 --> 00:19:54.170
  • prophecy is inspired utterance,
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:57.210
  • inspired words in a known
  • 00:19:57.210 --> 00:19:59.060
  • language.
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:00.120
  • Whereas speaking in tongues is
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:02.170
  • inspired utterance in an unknown
  • 00:20:02.170 --> 00:20:04.070
  • language.
  • 00:20:04.070 --> 00:20:04.290
  • So if you prophesy inspired
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:07.010
  • words in the known language of
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:08.230
  • the folks listening that is done
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:10.160
  • publicly.
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:11.220
  • But you can speak in tongues
  • 00:20:11.220 --> 00:20:12.190
  • privately to build up your inner
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:14.220
  • man.
  • 00:20:14.220 --> 00:20:15.110
  • 1 Corinthians 14:18 the apostle
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:18.140
  • Paul said, "I thank my God I
  • 00:20:18.140 --> 00:20:20.210
  • speak with tongues more than
  • 00:20:20.210 --> 00:20:22.040
  • y'all."
  • 00:20:22.040 --> 00:20:23.070
  • More than all of you.
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:24.120
  • I mean this is amazing to me.
  • 00:20:24.120 --> 00:20:25.150
  • The apostle Paul says, "I thank
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:26.210
  • God I speak with tongues more
  • 00:20:26.210 --> 00:20:28.170
  • than all of you.
  • 00:20:28.170 --> 00:20:29.260
  • Now, what's cool about this,
  • 00:20:29.260 --> 00:20:31.220
  • public or private?
  • 00:20:31.220 --> 00:20:33.140
  • Well in this case, private.
  • 00:20:33.140 --> 00:20:35.180
  • The apostle Paul basically said,
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:36.230
  • "Hey, I speak in tongues, you
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:38.010
  • Corinthians, you guys are tongue
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:39.040
  • talkers.
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:39.280
  • I know you've got the gift of
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:40.170
  • the spirit flying all over the
  • 00:20:40.170 --> 00:20:41.230
  • place.
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:42.090
  • But let me just tell you I speak
  • 00:20:42.090 --> 00:20:43.190
  • in tongues more than all of
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:44.180
  • you."
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.180
  • The apostle Paul said,
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:46.170
  • privately.
  • 00:20:46.170 --> 00:20:47.100
  • In my prayer life I speak in
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:48.140
  • tongues all the time.
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:49.240
  • Yet in the church he went on to
  • 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:51.150
  • say, I'd rather give you some
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:52.260
  • words that will really
  • 00:20:52.260 --> 00:20:53.140
  • build you up.
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:54.140
  • But privately, in my prayer
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:55.230
  • life, I'm speaking the tongues
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:57.020
  • all the time.
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:20:57.290
  • And to me what's interesting
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:20:59.000
  • isn't it interesting that the
  • 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.220
  • Lord used the apostle Paul to
  • 00:21:00.220 --> 00:21:02.240
  • write over half of the New
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:04.060
  • Testament.
  • 00:21:04.060 --> 00:21:04.240
  • This tongue talking apostle Paul
  • 00:21:04.240 --> 00:21:07.090
  • got so much revelation as he was
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:09.220
  • worshipping God and spending
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:11.120
  • time with the Lord and obviously
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:13.010
  • praying in tongues, God did some
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:14.230
  • things in his life.
  • 00:21:14.230 --> 00:21:15.210
  • So I just think that's a good
  • 00:21:15.210 --> 00:21:16.090
  • little exclamation point on the
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:18.160
  • apostle Paul and one this idea
  • 00:21:18.160 --> 00:21:19.220
  • of privately in our prayer life
  • 00:21:19.220 --> 00:21:22.180
  • praying in tongues.
  • 00:21:22.180 --> 00:21:23.150
  • So I hope from this, can you
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:24.200
  • just see the benefits of praying
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.150
  • in the spirit?
  • 00:21:26.150 --> 00:21:27.180
  • Now, I'm just going to, sort of
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.250
  • conclude our episode today.
  • 00:21:29.250 --> 00:21:31.110
  • Let's talk about one other
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:32.160
  • benefit of speaking in tongues
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:34.170
  • and then we're going to pick up
  • 00:21:34.170 --> 00:21:35.060
  • in our next episode with more
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:37.050
  • benefits of this idea of praying
  • 00:21:37.050 --> 00:21:39.050
  • and speaking in the spirit,
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:40.270
  • speaking in tongues and then I
  • 00:21:40.270 --> 00:21:41.230
  • want to answer questions because
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:43.070
  • I know you've got questions.
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:44.080
  • I want to answer some of the
  • 00:21:44.080 --> 00:21:45.140
  • top, you know, most frequently
  • 00:21:45.140 --> 00:21:47.090
  • asked questions when it comes to
  • 00:21:47.090 --> 00:21:48.200
  • this subject.
  • 00:21:48.200 --> 00:21:49.150
  • Okay?
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:50.060
  • So, hang in there with us.
  • 00:21:50.060 --> 00:21:51.180
  • We're taking some time but I
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:52.260
  • think it's worth it to really
  • 00:21:52.260 --> 00:21:54.170
  • help you get a grip on the
  • 00:21:54.170 --> 00:21:55.230
  • basics of being filled with the
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:57.220
  • spirit and then speaking in
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:21:59.100
  • tongues.
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:00.100
  • Okay?
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:00.280
  • Benefit.
  • 00:22:00.280 --> 00:22:01.220
  • What are the benefits?
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:04.150
  • Have you ever wanted to talk to
  • 00:22:04.150 --> 00:22:05.230
  • the Lord for your heart of
  • 00:22:05.230 --> 00:22:06.230
  • hearts as I mentioned?
  • 00:22:06.230 --> 00:22:07.240
  • Have you ever wanted to worship
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:08.290
  • God with freedom?
  • 00:22:08.290 --> 00:22:10.020
  • Have you ever wanted more
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:11.010
  • boldness to be a witness for the
  • 00:22:11.010 --> 00:22:12.210
  • Lord?
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:13.170
  • If so, these are the benefits of
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:15.290
  • speaking and praying in tongues
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:18.220
  • when you're filled with the
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:19.120
  • spirit.
  • 00:22:19.120 --> 00:22:20.070
  • We see here in 1 Corinthians
  • 00:22:20.070 --> 00:22:22.270
  • 14:2 this idea of praying in the
  • 00:22:24.050 --> 00:22:27.050
  • spirit.
  • 00:22:27.050 --> 00:22:28.080
  • And man, it bypasses your
  • 00:22:28.080 --> 00:22:29.290
  • intellect.
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:31.000
  • It gets your mind out of the
  • 00:22:31.000 --> 00:22:31.260
  • way.
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:32.140
  • There's only so much we even
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:33.060
  • know what to pray about, right?
  • 00:22:33.060 --> 00:22:35.020
  • But the Holy Spirit can bypass
  • 00:22:35.020 --> 00:22:36.240
  • all of our understanding and
  • 00:22:36.240 --> 00:22:38.190
  • doubt and logic and just from
  • 00:22:38.190 --> 00:22:39.260
  • our heart of hearts we can pray
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:41.230
  • according to 1 Corinthians 14:2.
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:43.230
  • "He who speaks in an unknown
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:45.230
  • tongue does not speak to men but
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:47.210
  • to God, for no one understands
  • 00:22:47.210 --> 00:22:49.210
  • him; however, in the spirit he
  • 00:22:49.210 --> 00:22:52.140
  • speaks mysteries."
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:53.270
  • Okay, there's a lot we could say
  • 00:22:53.270 --> 00:22:55.000
  • about this and we'll come back
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:56.000
  • to it but listen, when you're
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:22:57.000
  • praying in the spirit you're
  • 00:22:57.000 --> 00:22:58.190
  • praying according to God's
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:22:59.250
  • perfect will and nobody no man
  • 00:22:59.250 --> 00:23:02.190
  • or woman will understand you.
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:03.190
  • But God does.
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:04.070
  • It's a direct hotline right
  • 00:23:04.070 --> 00:23:05.130
  • straight to God and you can pray
  • 00:23:05.130 --> 00:23:07.110
  • mysteries, which is interesting.
  • 00:23:07.110 --> 00:23:09.120
  • In other words, our whole
  • 00:23:09.120 --> 00:23:10.210
  • future's a mystery.
  • 00:23:10.210 --> 00:23:12.040
  • None of us know what tomorrow's
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:12.260
  • going to bring.
  • 00:23:12.260 --> 00:23:13.140
  • None of us know 10 years,
  • 00:23:13.140 --> 00:23:14.270
  • 20 years from now.
  • 00:23:14.270 --> 00:23:16.030
  • If you're single maybe you don't
  • 00:23:16.030 --> 00:23:17.010
  • know who you're going to marry.
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:18.110
  • Maybe you don't know how many
  • 00:23:18.110 --> 00:23:19.050
  • kids you're going to have.
  • 00:23:19.050 --> 00:23:20.150
  • If you have kids or grandkids,
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:22.030
  • you don't know their future.
  • 00:23:22.030 --> 00:23:23.080
  • You don't know all the details
  • 00:23:23.080 --> 00:23:25.040
  • of their future.
  • 00:23:25.040 --> 00:23:25.280
  • It's a big mystery.
  • 00:23:25.280 --> 00:23:28.040
  • But the cool thing is when we
  • 00:23:28.040 --> 00:23:29.100
  • pray in the spirit we can pray
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:31.130
  • out the mystery.
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:32.230
  • We can pray--somebody said it
  • 00:23:32.230 --> 00:23:34.080
  • this way, we can pray out the
  • 00:23:34.080 --> 00:23:35.020
  • track you're going to run on.
  • 00:23:35.020 --> 00:23:36.240
  • You're not speaking to men,
  • 00:23:36.240 --> 00:23:37.290
  • you're speaking straight to God
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:38.290
  • from your heart of hearts and
  • 00:23:38.290 --> 00:23:40.000
  • you can pray about things that
  • 00:23:40.000 --> 00:23:41.210
  • you're understanding has no
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:42.210
  • knowledge of, really.
  • 00:23:42.210 --> 00:23:43.280
  • But the Holy Spirit knows and
  • 00:23:43.280 --> 00:23:45.050
  • you pray out mysteries and I
  • 00:23:45.050 --> 00:23:46.260
  • think that's one of the coolest
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:48.040
  • advantages of this ability to be
  • 00:23:48.040 --> 00:23:49.280
  • filled with the spirit and to
  • 00:23:49.280 --> 00:23:51.100
  • pray in tongues.
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:53.100
  • Okay, so we're going to hit
  • 00:23:53.100 --> 00:23:53.270
  • pause right here and we're going
  • 00:23:53.270 --> 00:23:55.130
  • to pick up in our next episode
  • 00:23:55.130 --> 00:23:57.140
  • and talk a whole lot more about
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:23:58.150
  • this subject.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:23:59.090
  • All about this idea of speaking
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:00.200
