  1. 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!
  2. 1 Corinthians 12:10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. It was easy to read, really basic. My Favorite book from Graham Cook is Prophetic Wisdom.
  6. 1 cor 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. 3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. 28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God
  7. In Scripture you see that the gifts of the Holy Spirit is an example of what is to come. Hebrews 6:5 calls it the powers of the age to come. For example, there is a grace for healing the sick, but when the fullness of the Kingdom is manifest on the earth with Jesus reigning as King, there will be no sickness. There is a grace of discerning of spirits, (ability to discern whats going on in the spiritual realm) but when His Kingdom is here, we will see the angels just as we see people, it will just be our normal sight. The Holy Spirit reveals things to us in part through prophecy and words of knowledge, but at that time we will know each other just as we are known (1 Cor 13:12). That is also why in 1 Cor 13:8 says that these will cease, because when "that which is perfect has come" what is in part will be done away with. These gifts or graces will no longer be partial but in fullness. The gifts demonstrate the Kingdom to come.
  8. This happened at a church in Brazil. This is also my first attempt adding narration to a video.
  9. Is the life that your living worth the price that He payed?

  10. I love this passage. It shows God's heart and desire. Many people are wanting God to come back and judge this wicked world, but God is wanting none to parish, but all come to know Him.
  11. Hahaha! Come on, Love this video, praise Jesus!
