The Gift of Tongues

- Pastor Belinda🌹- Feb. 15, 2024

The gift of tongues is the ability to speak in a language you do not know. It can be like in Acts 2:7-8 “Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?” Even though the Galileans did not know the languages of the people there from other countries they had the ability to speak in the foreign language. It can also be a heavenly language that is communication between someone and their Heavenly Father. I personally have been speaking in other tongues since the age of seven, when I received the infilling of the Holy Ghost. I personally will leave every Christian should experience speaking in tongues. It is a very intimate language between you and your father. It is good for a Christian to practice and release the tongues on a daily basis. We war with so much that is unseen in the spirit room that communication with your heavenly father is extremely important.

I knew a young man on the mission field, and one day we were waiting to pick up pastors in Nicaragua. This young man started speaking to the pastors in a fluent Spanish. I looked at him and I said “I didn’t know that you knew Spanish.” He said, “I don’t! I have prayed for the gift of Spanish.” And he said, “when I believe I can, I can talk to them, and if I start doubting it stops.”The pastors were understanding him as if he had spoke Spanish all his life. It was amazing to watch the gift of tongues that he was functioning in.

I do know that there are different types of tongues, and who’s to say God is limited to only one kind. I have been casting out demons in other countries and I was speaking in other tongues and that demon in that person would look at me, the demon would shake the person’s head back-and-forth, saying no. Tongues would come out of me again, and the demon would shake its head no. I knew that the spirit inside of me was speaking in a supernatural language that the demon could understand. The demon came out of the person as I was using the language of the spirit.

I also know there is a heavenly language that is used between me and my Lord. At times in deep worship and prayer I speak in this tongue. It comes from the heart deep inside your spirit.

If you do not speak in tongues you should ask the Lord for it. It is a gift and it is available for those who want it. I know there have been bad things that people in their ignorance have done that have caused a bad taste for some. Again, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. It is a good gift and I cherish this gift.

Be seeking Him,

Pastor Belinda🌹
