*.INTRODUCTION*: Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an important and powerful tool needed by every believer for his/her Christian journey. It is an integral part of the Believer’s prayer life. Apostle Paul in 1 Cor. 4:18 said “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all”. Speaking in tongues is the evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. The Scripture teaches us that when we are filled with the Holy Ghost, we shall speak with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance. Acts 2:4.

*MEMORY VERSE*: “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

*TEXT REVIEW*: 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
i. Holy Spirit is given to profit the Kingdom of God.
ii. He is the giver of every gift from God to Man and they are numerous.
iii. The gifts have diverse operation.
iv. He gives as much as we want.

*LESSON OUTLINE*

*Facts About Speaking In Tongues*.

1. He who speaks in tongues addresses God and not man, because no one understands him. He is talking of divine secrets with the Spirit. 1 Cor. 14:2.

2. He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifices himself. Praying in tongue is for spiritual edification. 1 Cor. 14:4, 14.

3. Speaking in tongues is a supernatural way to magnify God. Acts 10:46.

4. Speaking in tongues eliminates the possibility of selfishness entering our prayer life. Romans 8:26.

5. Speaking in tongues also builds our faith. Jude 20.

6. Speaking in tongues is a weapon against the works of the enemy. Mark 16:15-18.

7. When we speak in tongues, we speak the hidden wisdom of God. 1 Cor 2:6-7.

8. Speaking in tongues grants us access to other revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor. 12:8, 10.

9. Tongues rests and refreshes our weary souls. Isaiah 28:11-12.

10. It is the sure pathway to being a person through whom God can pour out His power to others. Acts 1:8.

*SUMMARY*: Holy Spirit baptism is a must for every genuine believer.

*CONCLUSION*: Speaking in tongues is a gift that is available to every believer. It allows us to pray according to God’s will. It keeps us in line with the Holy Spirit and strengthens our spirit as we stand against the works of the devil. It is a powerful gift that every believer should desire.

  1. Hello Bro Daniel, How would you solve this problem with some of us who live at the beginning of the world, where our time zone is about 12 hours ahead of you. How can we get the open heaven earlier than other parts of the world. Thanks

  2. We are already on 18th of March 2019 now but we don’t have access to open heaven yet. I await your response sir

  3. I think there’s a little digression from the topic, the title is “holy ghost Baptism” but the emphasis in the study focused on speaking in tongues.

Please drop a comment. God bless you!
