When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:1-4)
Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. (Acts 2:5)
(T)o another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. (1 Cor. 12:10)
Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy. For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. (1 Cor. 14:1-3)
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; (Mark 16:17)
Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. (1 Cor. 14:4)
But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit… (Jude 20)
I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified.
Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? (1 Cor. 14:5-6)
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:4)
So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. (1 Cor. 14:12)
So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? (1 Cor. 14:23)Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks
