  • 1. TONGUES A SIGN?OF THE SPIRIT By George Duke
  • 2. • At the age of 11 years old I attended the First Baptist Church in Flomaton, Alabama. I wish to thank them for teaching me to study the bible. It was during the study of the bible that I came across Mark 16 verse 16 where it states that these signs shall follow those that believe. One of the signs was they shall speak with a new tongue. I asked the Sunday School teacher what this meant and after a 2 week wait I asked him again after he had concurred with the Pastor of the church. His answer was “You do not curse or talk nasty anymore”. Sounded ok at the time but years later I attended a church where I heard them speaking in tongues. I remembered my earlier search for an answer and here it was. Years later I was to see my wife filled with the Holy Ghost and speak in tongues when it happened. Days later because she had never heard of speaking in tongues she called a Sister and asked her what had happened

  • 24. CAN WE PRAY FOR YOUTO RECEIVE HIS SPIRIT
  • 25. ? IS SPEAKING IN TONGUES• REAL? I have learned. that you cant base an opinion on something just because its never happened to you. Just because its not happening to me doesnt mean its not real or that others are faking it. We are so quick to judge at times and so quick to shut God out and God never gets a chance to do in us what he always wanted to. We have replaced something thats real with a judgment or a false accusation.• 1. What is speaking in tongues ? - Speaking in tongues merely means to speak in another language (earthly or heavenly that is not your native tongue.• 2. Is tongues for today? - God is the same yesterday-today-& forever. Jesus came to earth and established the New Testament church and in that church they spoke in tongues and were baptized in water in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 2:38 1 Corinthians 14: 39 reads - "Do not forbid speaking in tongues."• 3. What’s the point of speaking in tongues? - Well, the bible says: 1 Corinthians 14:4 - "The one who speaks in tongues builds up himself." Now what better statement is that! So if I dont speak in tongues I lack the edification I really need everyday. It builds up your spirit man within to speak in tongues.• 4. Do people fake it? - Yes. People fake salvation, people fake their prayers people fake who they really are when they go to church on Sunday. So yes-some people may fake it. Kids can fake it because they see another sibling receive it and the attention they get . But thats not for us to get caught up in. I know in my spirit what is right and I know because the spirit of God gives me discernment to those things• 5-Can Satan cause people to speak in tongues? Yes he can especially if one is not sincere or has not truly repented of their sins.
