For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. I Corinthians 14:2
Most Christians are yet to understand ‘praying in tongues’. Some don’t believe in it, others just don’t care. Unknown to them; that is where the power of a believer finds expression. The origin of tongues was in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:4). Praying in tongues is a manifestation of the infilling of the Holy Ghost. It is one of the signs that follow the believer. “And these signs shall follow them that believe…they shall speak with new tongues…” (Mark 16:17). So if you don’t care about speaking in tongues, then chances are, you don’t belong to God. Have you noticed that people in the kingdom of darkness (witches, native doctors) have their language which they use in making incantations, casting spells, and communicating with the spirits? We children of God have our own language. It is praying in the Spirit, in languages you have never learnt in your life, which most times, you don’t understand. We were given this ability in order to communicate with the unseen realm.
The Apostle Paul knew the importance of speaking in tongues and he wrote, “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: (I Corinthians 14:18). There is a song that has a line that says, “…we speak in tongues, satan is confused, deliverance will follow, amen…” It is true. The more you pray in tongues, the more you move spiritual forces in your favour, the more you remove cobwebs and clear your paths. When you declare into your year, don’t just do so with human language. Engage the language of the spirit for quicker result. Get born again, receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, then you are ready to command your year with tongues.
In doing this, don’t forget that giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year.
1 Corinthians 14:1-40
Healed of High BP, arthritis, toothache
I suffered from High Bp, arthritis and tooth ache. I was listening to daddy Larry over the radio one day when he invited his listeners to the next church Sunday service. I decided to go. The day I went, during ministration, daddy called for those with health issues and I came out. Daddy laid hands on me and prayed. Since then my Bp has been normal, the toothache and arthritis have gone. To God be all the glory.
