The Bible says don’t neglect things of the spirit & our salvation.
“Therefore we must give the more earnest heed (take notice, pay attention) to the things we have heard, lest we drift away for if the word spoken through angels (mosaic law) proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard him, God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will?”
Hebrews 2:1-4 (NKJV)
We are warned to take heed to what we have heard, to what has been preached and what has been placed in the Word of God for our lives.
There were 3 facts that has confirmed everything, everything was;
1. Spoken by Jesus (The Word),
2. Confirmed by the Apostles through testimonies, witnessing and miracles,
3. Witness by ministry of Holy Spirit through signs, wanders, miracles and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus spoke of our heavenly language and the Holy Spirit verified it in;
‘and these signs will follow those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; ……’ Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV)
Speaking in other tongues or heavenly languages is a promise from Jesus Himself. This is for ALL BELIEVERS! This has nothing to do with a denominational issue but rather a spiritual promise.
We see the promise at Pentecost (Holy Spirit poured out) upon all who were present, expectant and full of faith. See Acts 2:1-4. All present were filled with the Holy Spirit, spoke with other tongues (gifts) as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Tongues was prophesied about by Isaiah;
‘for with stammering lips and another tongue he will speak to this people,’
Isaiah 28:11 (NKJV)
So this is a God thing, a Spirit filled believer thing, not a denominational thing!
Tongues is a gift, from God to us so that we can communicate mysteries to God. It’s like a two way radio, only that cant be intercepted by the enemy. See 1 Corinthians 14:2 (NKJV). Your heavenly language is a language of Worship, Intercession and Personal edification. It is a heavenly weapon and tool for us.
‘but you, beloved, build yourselves up on [the foundation of] your most holy faith [continually progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], pray in the holy spirit, ‘Jude 1:20 (AMP)
Praying in spirit is part of the armour of God (see Ephesians 6). It helps us pray in weakness, it helps us pray when we don’t know what to and also helps us pray God’s perfect will.
The Apostle Paul concluded that;
‘what is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and i will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and i will also sing with the understanding. I thank my god i speak with tongues more than you all; ‘ 1 Corinthians 14:15,18 (NKJV)
Church, let’s not be ignorant of the things of the Spirit that have been given to us so that we can live victorious lives as well as walk in the Kingdom authority we have been called to. See 1 Corinthians 12:1.
