1 Cor  12:1 – “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant”.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit provides an inner power that becomes an outward force to bring the realities of Jesus to others. God doesn’t want you to be ignorant about the things of the Spirit. It’s essential to know and understand the Holy Spirit and why we should be filled with the Holy Spirit.

We are born of the Spirit, giving us the right to the Kingdom. We are filled with the Spirit, giving us the power, the ability, the know-how, the working knowledge, and the understanding of operating in the Kingdom. Being filled with the Spirit and speaking in tongues is the bridge to a higher dimension of operating in the Kingdom.  Everything the Spirit does and every way He does it can be touched through tongues. In other words, tongues will take you there.

The new birth alone is not the fullness of our salvation. We must be born again, and then filled with the Holy Spirit. Being born again is not the end. There is a purpose for us to be born again. Being born again changes all the realms of possibility for us. We’re born again to receive the promise of the Holy Spirit (Gal 3:13-14).

Believers should be sign-producing machines. When we yield to tongues on purpose—consistently throughout the day intertwined with our believing, or mixed with expectation that comes from the WORD—the natural makes way for the supernatural!

Jesus didn’t say, “Those that believe will be able to speak in tongues.” He said, “Those that believe—this is what they do” (Mark 16:17).  Confess: “I will speak in tongues!” (1 Corinthians 14:15).

Reason 1: why believers should pray in other tongues, is that tongues are the initial evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues is the outward manifestation of the inward force of the Holy Spirit. It is the initial sign of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is supernatural evidence of the Spirit’s indwelling

Paul asked certain disciples if they had received the Holy Spirit since they believed (see Acts 19:1-6). They said they had not heard of the Holy Spirit. They had been baptized into John’s baptism. Paul said, “John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on Him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”

When they heard this, they were baptized in the Name of The LORD Jesus. First, when they heard that Jesus was the One who was coming, they were saved.

Second: they were filled with the Holy Spirit—they spoke in tongues and prophesied.  “And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues and prophesied.”

‘The most important thing a man or woman of God can do in prayer is to pray in other tongues.’ God wants you to be filled with the Spirit. God has done everything for you except the receiving part. You have to do that by yourself, and the words in other tongues will come.

Paul spoke with tongues more than others (see 1 Corinthians 14:18). He said this himself; “I thank God that I speak in tongues more than any of you or all of you put together” (1 Corinthians 14:18, AMPC). Paul wrote a lot about speaking in tongues, and he practiced what he preached.

Quote:  “If Paul did more speaking in tongues than the Corinthians did—and it seemed that was all they wanted to do, Paul must have done a tremendous amount of speaking with other tongues. He must have gotten up in the morning speaking in other tongues. He must have spoken in tongues between meals. He must have gone to bed at night speaking in tongues.”

God wants you to know the things of the Holy Spirit. He Said “I don’t want you ignorant of things pertaining to the Spirit” (see 1 Corinthians 12:1). Speaking in other tongues should not be a mystery to us.

The spirit realm was reopened by Jesus’ Blood (Ephesians 2:13; Hebrews 10:19-20); The Blood of Jesus reopened the door to man, eliminated the sin, and got rid of the darkness. Jesus said, “Receive the Holy Spirit” and He breathed on the disciples (John 20:22). This was the same as in Genesis 2:7. Life was breathed into man, and he was alive with the Life of God.

When Jesus breathed on the disciples, they were born again. Jesus blew/breathed on the disciples. It was a demonstration, an expression of the Holy Spirit. That’s what God did to Adam. He breathed His life into Adam.

There is a difference between someone who is born again and someone who has received the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. This is a subsequent event. It’s a choice made by the believer.

Receive this gift. Say out loud, “Father, I receive the gift of the infilling of the Holy Spirit.” Then, begin to speak. Let your spirit (not your mind) speak in words that are not your natural language.

Things of the Spirit are received by your spirit, and they are beautiful. Receive the Holy Spirit today. Praying in The Spirit is more than speaking in Tongues, it is a way a life.


 “Heavenly Father, I ask You according to Acts 19:6, to fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I have been born again, and now I want this precious gift You offer. In Jesus’ Name, I receive the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Amen.”

Now speak! The Holy Spirit will give you a new language.

You can be filled with the Holy Spirit! Let’s do it!
