1.) Is he „something“ supernatural, positive energy, a dove, fire or wind?
Here the answer: The Holy Spirit is a person – He is God!
God reveals himself in FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT. Symbols like wind, fire, flames, dove,… want to show you the works of the Holy Spirit, his manifestations. Well, it does not mean that he looks like flames or a dove…
2.) Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Some people think there would be a kind of „rank“…
They think: the father is the strongest and then Jesus, then the Holy Spirit… well… who is that? Just the third person of the trinity…
Hey, STOP! The Holy Spirit is as almighty and powerful as the father and the son! There’s no rank list! And because of that he earns your adoration, your love and your time as well…
3.) The Holy Spirit is sensible and powerful.
You can hurt him with your sins.
And you can come nearer to him and he gets nearer to you!
Jesus is comparable with a lion and a lamb. That means he is full of power and strength like a lion (=king) AND peaceful like a little lamb.
That’s the same with the Holy Spirit!
4.) Your FRIEND, the Holy Spirit!
He wants to love and comfort you. He wants to be your closest friend like Jesus. You can talk to him (do it!). Spend your time with him…
He wants to help you to pray – now I explain speaking in tongues..
SPEAKING IN TONGUES
Often we can’t describe God with our human words. We are not able to describe his glory, his power, his beauty, his love………and salvation through our LORD Jesus… we can’t describe it in fitting words.
In this problem the Holy Spirit of God wants to help you.
He can lay his words in your mouth and you just speak them…
„likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what
we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.“
Jesus himself said that the people who believe in him (born again christians) will speak in tongues:
„And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall the cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues“
„Speak with new tongues“…
Speaking in tongues is a gift from the Holy Spirit. When you get filled with him you can speak in tongues!
Please look at these verses:
„And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they where all with one
accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of
a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they where
sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,
and it sat upon each of them. And they where all filled with the Holy
Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them
„While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them
which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were
astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles
also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them
speak with tongues, and magnify God…“
(Acts 10, 44-46)
THE MEANING OF IT ALL…
Now I want to explain the meaning of it all – why does the gift „speaking in tongues“ exist?
„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
„He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself.“
When you speak in tongues you’ve got the hot line to God! You don’t understand it (and you haven’t to understand it). You get new power, love for Jesus and energy while praying in tongues.
It’s the HOLY SPIRIT who wants to be close to you. He is the great comforter.
„But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for
them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:
for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.“
Ask God to give you (more) HUNGER for his precious Holy Spirit!
If you want to speak in tongues then ask the Holy Spirit to give you his words, open your mouth and begin to SPEAK…
HERE A GREAT EXAMPLE, TO EXPLAIN IT MORE:
„Behold the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of
fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm,
whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little
member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little
fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the
tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth
on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire of hell. For every
kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the
sea, is tamed, and has been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man
tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.“
ship = you
small helm = your tongue
leader/wind = the Holy Spirit
When you guide your tongue you often speak bad words and hurt others. But when the Holy Spirit „takes“ your tongue.. you can speak godly words and it lifts you up.
You give praises to God.
„Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit
of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is
the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.“
Why don’t you ask the Holy Spirit right now to speak in tongues…
