Why We Speak In Tongues(God’s Own People)


{1}Speaking in tongues builds you up:When you are born again and filled with the holy ghost, the power of God comes to reside in you.The power is triggered off or set in motion when you speak in other tongues.
“He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself;…”(1 Corinthians 14:4)
The Greek word translated ” edifieth” is “oikodomeo”,which means to construct or build up,to embolden or charge up like you would charge a battery.This scripture is therefore telling us that the one who ask in an unknown tongue builds himself up like a battery.

He that speaks in an unknown tongue builds up himself, when you spend time to speak in other tongues, you are actually building up your spirit man.

” but ye,beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith,praying in the holy spirit “(Jude 1:20)
When you speak in tongues, you are charging yourself in the spirit and stirring up the power of Gods resident within you.Then strength comes and the glory of God is revealed in your life.If you are were weak in your Christian life, as you speak in other tongues, the power of God that has laid dormant in you would be stirred up and you will be strengthened to do the things of God again.

Speaking in tongues ,coupled with the confessions of the word of God will make you a spiritual giant.
As you speak in tongues, you are recharging yourself like a battery on a charger.when you speak in other tongues, you are not just mouthing some religious gibberish but declaring mysteries in the spirit. You are speaking words that will change your whole world!.

{2}It emboidens you:
” He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself;.. “(1 Corinthians 14:4)
Remember that one of the meaning of ” edifieth” is “embolden” that is “he that speaketh in an unknown tongue emboidens himself”. Speaking in tongues is a solution to fear and timidity. If you ever become timid about anything, speaking in tongue helps you fight over it.
As a Christian, know that God has not given you the spirit fear,but power,love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).Activate the power within you by spending time speaking in other tongues; it works!.
Sometime in 2001,I preached a message titled ” power for change ” and in that teaching,I told the congregation never to be afraid. I told them,”you have more power inside you than everyone who’s of the world ” so don’t be afraid of kidnappers,if you ever get kidnapped, don’t be afraid of them,don’t beg,don’t negotiate, let them take you.sit there with them and say “let’s go” as they are taking you away, speak in other tongues. Before long,they will be the one’s begging you. By the time you are speaking in those tongues, you are actually saying “I claim these one’s for Jesus Christ!” They may tell you “shut up or else…!” But don’t respond in English,Reply them in other tongues. As you speak ,your angels will take their positions and you will be victorious!.
Shortly after I preached this message, a young lady in our church who had heard this message who experienced such kidnapping testified that as she was taken away by kidnappers, she remembered this message and she just blew up speaking in tongues.
They threatened her several times to keep shut or they would kill her,but she couldn’t contain herself anymore. She spoke in tongues even louder and as she did,she became bolder in spite of her desperate situation. The next thing she knew,the kidnappers stopped the car,opened the door and fled.Glory to God!
Speaking in tongues stops all fear;it emboldens you and builds up your inner man so strong that you will have the dominion over all your adversaries.

[2]It Empowers you to preach:
I heard a nine year old boy say “I began speaking in tongues when I couldn’t preach the word of God to my class mates at school.He said ,” when I started speaking in tongues, I became bold,then when I went to school,I preached to all my mates”.Age has nothing to do with it;this was a nine year old boy speaking in tongues.
There is no limitation as to what the spirit of God can do in your life today if you would spend some quality time to speak in tongues. He is not a respecter of person; what He’s done for one,he will do for another under the same circumstances.
[3]It Charges you up:
When you speak in other tongues, you charge your spirit. This is a quick charge because your spirit responds very quickly. It will only take a few minutes and suddenly the anointing is stirred within you and you are turned into another man.
Back in the old testament, every time the spirit of God [Holy Ghost] came upon Samson, he was changed from an ordinary man of superhuman strength, All it took was a moment for that change to occur.
The bible records in one instance that he took the doors of the gate of the city,and the two Post’s and went away with them,bar and all,put them upon his shoulders and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron [judges: 16:3].Samson was so charged that he was able to do what was otherwise humanly impossible.
If this happened in the old testament when the holy spirit could only come upon a person for a period of time to enable him accomplish a God-given purpose,how much more now that he has come to abide with us forever!.
