So according to scripture we are to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and speak with other tongues. Speaking in tongues is Gods own supernatural prayer language, it’s a direct link to him, a bit like picking up the red telephone and saying “get me the President” lol! But no, its talking with him almost face to face, you see when you talk in tongues, the devil can’t understand a word you are saying, therefore, he cannot use your prayers against you, or he can’t really work on those things you are praying for, eg Father I thank you for our hundredfold return” what’s the devil going to do with this little nugget? He’s going to tell you how you will NEVER reap your hundredfold return because God doesn’t want you to prosper, you don’t do enough for him, “WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH”. This is all lies, the devil is a liar and a thief and will use whatever tactics he can to get you into bondage and out from under God’s wing. SO this is where speaking in tongues is so crucial. Being baptized in the Holy Spirit is the key I think, well that’s what I have heard preached anyway.
Now I can see all this in theory, and I understand it totally but I still can’t speak with other tongues and it is really annoying! I have asked God what I need to change about myself in order to pave the way for this new language and to date I have not heard. That’s not to say there is a very good reason for it and when the time is right God will manifest that to me but in the meantime I will just continue to pray in English and thank God for every good thing he does in my life! I will remain steadfast with patient endurance KNOWING that I WILL speak in other tongues as it is written in the Bible and when I get my breakthrough I will shout it from the mountain (my blog mountain that is)…
Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying.
