Topic: How To Participate With The Helper (“The Holy Spirit”) – Part 3 (Through the Gift of Tongues)

1 Corinthians 12:1Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant

Ignorant – not just the absence of knowledge but also the absence of experience.

“The presence of God’s gift in your life is because of God’s goodness; not because you are more special to God than others.”

“The number of gifts operating in your life is not because you are more loved; God wants to use you to build His Kingdom.”

“Operating the gifts requires faith; faith steps out of your comfort zone.”

Acts 2:17-18 – And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11;31

Word of wisdom  – something that has not yet happened

Word of knowledge – something that already happened

1 Corinthians 14:1-5; 14-15; 17-18

Jude 1:20 – But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit

“We build up ourselves by speaking in tongues”

“You are praying in dependence on; as directed by the Holy Spirit”
