(KJV.) ACTS 2:2-4
(2) And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
(3) And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
(4) And there were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
ARISE AND SHINE!
Brethren arise and shine! The Holy Ghost anointing, empowerment is upon you; go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. (Mark 16:15-16); therefore, we have duties to perform in the body of Christ, assignments to tackle for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in the world of darkness.
When Jesus Christ calls vessels into discipleships, he does not leave them powerless, but gives them the necessary gifts and talents, for tasks ahead of them; as sanctified, anointed, empowered vessels, filled with the Holy Ghost, also known as the Holy Spirit: the question we need to ask ourselves is, what is the Holy Spirit's mission in our lives? If we already know the answers to this question; then, we have found our purposes in life, are fully matured, ready to utilize our gifts and talents to glorify our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
The subject for today is speaking in tongues; when believers receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, many receive the gift of tongues as well, speak in diverse languages which they have not learned, or spoken before, normally would not speak or understand: when this gift comes upon believers, they proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the Son of our Father, glorify, give thanks to our Father, for his goodness, and mercies that never fails but endure forever,
What is speaking in tongues? It is an unusual manifestation of the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, through the sensual utterances of believers, signifying, miracles, signs, and wonders of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; essentially, for doing something that is abnormal, that human perception cannot comprehend through carnalities; sceptics debate this phenomenon, determine as abnormal, fictitious, lunatic behaviors; this is not true! speaking in tongues is a real manifestation of the Holy Spirit, for the benefit of ministering, praying for ourselves, the body of Christ or for others; some believers, are gifted with interpretation of tongues as well; however, this type of manifestation of the Holy Spirit is a mystery from our Father, no one can determine how it works from believers innermost spirits; however, our Father, Jesus Christ, understands all tongues, regardless of utterances, languages spoken; remember, our Father said; "Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." (Genesis 11:7); therefore, if our Father confounded languages, gave humanity different languages; he understands all languages spoken through tongues; there is nothing wrong, if we possess this gift, let us utilise it to maximum for it is the Holy Spirit that gives the utterances for glorification of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, the bottom line today is, when believers receive transformations, regenerations from resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; they need to rise up, manifest the glory of our Father, that the world may ascertain who they are, have become in the body of Christ, utilize spiritual gifts to enlighten other souls to salvation. free grace and life forever and ever. Arise and shine! Amen and Amen!
