  2. tongues

    I enjoy speaking in tongues, it has been extremely helpful for me to connect to God and pray and worship on a deeper level. It's from God so it's good and edifying and for that alone it's worth perusing, but it is not necessary for salvation.

    YAY Jesus!!!
  4. I teach classes on the Gospel Monday nights and about a month ago I started doing them in the park and inviting all the homeless we've been witnessing to during outreaches to come. I was preaching on the Gospel and how the devils wants to display his nature in people. The devil is hopeless, he's condemned, he's angry, he's depressed, he's a murderer, a liar, there is nothing good in him and he wants expression himself through people, but Jesus restores us, fills us with hope, and brings us back into the image of God we were created in. At the end, I asked if anyone wanted to give their lives to Jesus and a few people rose their hands. One guy was a transgender in transition to becoming a woman and was passing through. He gave his life to Jesus and I asked him how he was doing and he said, "I feel free for the first time." Then proceeded to tell he that he had a demon living inside of him that is gone for the first time. Come on!! There is so much power in this gospel. Another lady was insane, out of her mind, and talking to herself. My friends ministered to her and cast demons out of her and all of a sudden she was in her right mind, talking normal, filled with joy and giving everyone hugs. God is moving! He is alive, and He is the same God today as He is in the bible.
  5. tongues

    Actually Greek was the common language because of Rome, there was one common language that was spoken through out the land, which is the just about all of where the apostles ministered. They didn't need tongues for communication. Paul makes pretty clear the purpose of the gift of tongues, and there is a reason why interpretation of tongues is a gift of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. 1 Corinthians 14:13-17Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. 16 Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say “Amen” at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say? 17 For you indeed give thanks well, but the other is not edified.
  6. tongues

    Where in scripture is that distinction? Where does it say that speaking foreign language only a gift? 1 Corinthians 14 shows the opposite of what your saying.
  7. Heaven to Earth - Movie Trailer

    I'm launching my documentary at a few different Churches starting on the 30th. If you would, pray for non-believers to come, be impacted, and come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and also that the places this movie plays, people would encounter God in a deeper way and be fueled with passion and love for Jesus.
  8. Speaking in tongues

    In 2004, I was in rebellion against God. I blamed him for alot of things and my whole life I was living against Him. One night I broke down, I started shouting at God question after question even cussing Him out. The next day my sister forced me to go to Church, I didn't want to go but I was living with her so said, "if you are living in my house, you are going to Church." I went and during the worship I started to feel something I've never felt before. It was like tangible love and peace started to come upon me and then I felt something inside me, anger rose up and I heard a voice in my head saying, "I will not give my life to Jesus!" This was the first time I realized it wasn't my own thoughts. I would get angry every time someone would try witnessing to me. All of a sudden, the lady on the worship team locked eyes with me and started speaking in tongues. When she did, I felt the presence of God overwhelm me and what ever was in me left, that peace and love and even the fear of the Lord started filling me and I was undone. After that, the pastor said he felt like the Lord wanted him to change his sermon and started answering every question I shouted at Jesus. When he did an alter call I was first to rush up and give my life to the Lord. For the next few days I started searching the bible for tongues, I have never heard of it before except only weirdo cults do it. I read 1 Corinthians 12-14, and prayed, Lord, You said "ask, "it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." So I am asking for the gift of tongues. After that my tongue started moving by itself and then when I started speaking I could speak in a language I've never spoke in before. It's been 14 years now and I still have that language, and it has been a powerful gift in my life. One thing I've noticed is the more I pray in tongues, the easier it is to hear where the Spirit is moving, or saying. I've noticed when I worship in tongues for a while, and then I started reading the bible, the bible comes alive and I start understanding it more. The gift of tongues is a precious gift from the Holy Spirit and it has greatly enhanced my my life for the better. Happy Pentecost by the way!
  9. tongues

    1 Corinthians 12:10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues
  10. tongues

    There is a study done where a doctor ran a catscan on people praying in tongues and verified that it doesn't come from the place in our brain we speak out of, you can find it on youtube pretty easily. As far as Raising the dead, praying in tongues etc. There are many people who have experienced that I'm sure there is doctor verified evidence for that I just haven't done the research. I know Reignhard Bonnke, Heidi Baker, and many other ministers have experienced that especially in regards to missions. I do know that Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever
  11. Why isn't foot washing at church ordinance?

    I have practiced footwashing and have been to churches that practice it. One thing to think about is culturally, they wore sandals and walked miles in the dirt. While fit has as major symbolic meaning today, washing feet had a widely different meaning than it does today, it represents the lowest form of serving, something only slaves would do for their masters and Jesus modeled it. In that act, Jesus reveals that we are called to serve each other with the greatest humility and love for one another. When the disciples were focused on who was the greatest, Jesus, being the greatest humbled himself and performed an act that was considered the least.
