Speaking in Tongues

Isaiah 28:11 says...

With stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

Who is the "he"?

1 Corinthians 14:21 has the answer...

With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people...saith the Lord.

The "he" then is the Lord.

Isaiah 28:12

To whom he said,

This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest;

and this is the refreshing.

Speaking in tongues is partly for rest and refreshing.

Acts 2:16-17

This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,

I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:

Acts 2:4, Acts 10:46, Acts 19:6 all show when the Holy Spirit came at the beginning

He manifested Himself in the speaking in tongues.

Mark 16:17

And these signs shall follow them that believe;

In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues...

I Corinthians 12:28

God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers,

after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

1 Corinthians 14 ... the whole chapter!

Speaking in tongues is for today.

It's for every believing Christian.

From "With Signs Following" by Stanley Frodsham...

"Do you personally know the power of the precious blood of Christ to cleanse from all sin?

And if so, have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed?

If not, you can ask the Lord now, and He declares:

Everyone who asks receives."
