The Gifts of the Holy Spirit Lesson #5

13) Tongues: for the purpose of prophecy:

Definition: Supernaturally given utterance in a language

for the purpose of prophecy, spoken by a Holy Spirit

the baptized person who doesn’t know the language

he /she is speaking.

Jesus prophesized that believers would speak

in tongues.

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my

the name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with

new tongues;

Mark 16:17 (KJV)

Ac 2:3 (KJV) And there appeared unto them cloven

tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and

began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them


5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews,

devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude

came together, and were confounded, because of that

every man heard them speak in his own language.

7 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying

one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak


8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue,

wherein we were born?

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers

in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in

Pontus, and Asia,

10  Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts

of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews,

and proselytes,

11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in

our tongues the wonderful works of God.

Acts 2:3-11 (KJV)

NOTE: Remember the story at the tower of Babel and now God confused the language of the people because they set themselves up above God well this can explain what  happened here I feel.

The difference in languages which arose at Babel has much  hindered the spread of knowledge and religion. The instruments whom the Lord first employed in spreading the Christian religion, could have made no progress without this gift, which proved that their authority was from God

For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify

God. Then answered Peter,

Acts 10:46 (KJV)

And all the men were about twelve.

Acts 19:7 (KJV)

To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy;

to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of

tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1 Corinthians 12:10 (KJV)

4 Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues,

what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by

revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

5  I would that ye all spake with tongues,

but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth

than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret,

that the church may receive edifying.

6  Now, brethren,

if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you,

except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge,

or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

1 Corinthians 14:4-6 (KJV)

So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be

understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall

speak into the air.

1 Corinthians 14:9 (KJV)

1Co 14:18 (KJV) I thank my God, I speak with tongues more

than ye all:   19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words

with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others

also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

1 Corinthians 14:18-19 (KJV)

1Co 14:22 (KJV) Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them

that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying

serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place,

and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are

unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

1 Corinthians 14:22-23 (KJV)



1Co 14:26 (KJV) How is it then, brethren? when ye come together,

every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath

a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or

at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

1 Corinthians 14:26-27 (KJV)

NOTE: The Holy Spirit is the author of order, and not of confusion
