What is Speaking in Tongues and Why Does God Want Each Christian to Just Do It?

February 8, 2011

Speaking in tongues is one of the most vital things a Christian can do, so much so that God specifically says: "I would like every one of you to speak in tongues." At the moment a person is born again by confessing Jesus Christ as his Lord and believing that God raised him from the dead, he receives the gift of holy spirit, and that gift comes with nine abilities that God calls "manifestations," and one of them is speaking in tongues.

On the Day of Pentecost recorded in Acts 2, God showed us the pattern He desires for every Christian: that he speaks in tongues immediately after he is born again. On this show John sets forth the two main reasons why God gives each Christian this unique ability, as well as six other benefits listed in Scripture. If you have ever wanted to speak in tongues, you can do so, and John shows you how.
