Baptism of the Holy Spirit

can result in speaking (praying) in unknown TONGUES (languages)


Isaiah 28:11-12 KJV 
With (through our) stammering lips & another tongue (heavenly language) will He speak to this people. 
To whom He said, "This rest (interior peace) wherewith you may cause the we rest. 
This is the refreshing; yet, they would not hear
(listen/accept/believe/apply to their circumstances)."

Matthew 3:7,11-12  
When he saw many of the Pharisees & Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them"...I baptize you with water for repentance, but after me will come One who is more powerful than I, Whose sandals I am not fit to carry.  He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit &
with fire.

Mark 16:17 - These signs shall follow them that BELIEVE.  In My name shall they cast out devils. 
They shall speak with new tongues
(Tongues is our praying out loud in a language, personally unknown to us, & is often a form of praise)

Luke 3:16-17 -
"I (John the Baptist) am baptizing you with water, but there is One to come Who is mightier than I...
He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit & in fire."
Luke 11:13 - "If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ASK Him," (says Jesus).
Luke 12:49 - "I  have come to cast fire on the earth & would (prefer) that it were already kindled."

John 1:3 -
"Upon Whom you see Holy Spirit descending & remaining on Him, This is He Who baptizes with the Holy Spirit."
(John baptizes with water for cleansing of sin.  Messiah baptizes with His Holy Spirit for spiritual empowerment.)
john/14-16.htm - I (Jesus) will ask the Father, Who will give you another Advocate to be with you forever  

john/14-17.htm - The Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He, the (Holy) Spirit dwells with (beside) you (24/7, sealed/shared via public adult water baptism/sacrament/ covenant) & will be in (side of) you (via Holy Spirit fire baptism/sacrament/ confirmation).
john/16-7.htm - I tell you the truth, it is profitable for you that I should go away; for unless I go away the Helper (My Holy Spirit) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. (Yeshua retruned to Fahther God in the 3rd heaven, but sent His replacement to INDWELL (impregnate/inhabit/join with our human spirit.)
John 20:19-23 - 19 So when it was evening on that day, the 1st day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, (Resurrected) Jesus came, stood in their midst & SAID to them, “Peace be with you.”
20 When He had said this, He showed them both His hands & side.
The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

21 So Jesus SAID (spoke) to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”
22 When He had said this, He breathed on them & said to them, “Receive Holy Spirit."
23If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them. 
If you retain the sins of any, they have been retained

[Yeshua SPOKE (created/seeded) Holy Spirit into human experience/existence (conception), but the visible manifestation (birth) seems to have appeared later at Jewish feast of Pentecost 50 days after Jewish feast of Passover.]

Acts 1:4-5,8 - On 1 occasion, while He (Jesus) was eating with them (the disciples), He gave them this command,
"Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift My Father promised, which you have heard Me speak about. 
For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be
baptized with the Holy Spirit." 
You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you & you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, & in all Judea & Samaria & to the end of the earth."
Acts 2:1-4 - When the day of (the annual Hebrew feast of) Pentecost came, they (120 believers) were all together in one place.  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven & filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated & came to rest on each of them. 
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit & began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
(Even Pope John Paul II prays in tongues.
Acts 2:38-39 - acts/2-39.htm - Peter replied, "Repent & be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins & you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
promise is for you & your children & for all who are far off, for all whom the Lord our God will call."
Acts 8:14-17 - 14When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God (that Jesus was Messiah), they sent Peter & John to them. 
15When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit (infilling),
16because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them.
They had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus
17Then Peter & John placed their hands on them & they received the Holy Spirit (infilling/baptism by water immersion).   
Acts 8:13-17 TPNT -
13Even Simon (a powerful practicer of magic arts) himself believed.  After he was baptized (with water for the repentance of sins), he attached himself to Philip, amazed when he saw signs & great miracles. 
14When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that the Samaritans welcomed the Word of God, they sent Peter & John to them,
15,who when they went down from Jerusalem, prayed that they would (next, also) take the Holy Spirit:
16for not yet was it fallen upon any of them, but they were only being (water) baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus
17Then (subsequently) Peter & John were laying hands on them & recipients were taking the Holy Spirit.
(evidenced by speaking in tongues.  The skill of transference was coveted by Simon noted in Acts 8:18-24)
[TPNT footnote.  "The laying on of hands for the baptism comes from this. 
See Acts 19:6. 
Notice that those prayed for (took) the Holy Spirit.  Holy Spirit baptism must be sought."] (Not bought. 
Also consider that the 3 names of the Trinity may need to be invoked, eg. in the name of the Father, Son, & Holy Ghost, not just in the Messiah's name.)
Acts 8:18-24 TPNT - 18When Simon saw that the Spirit was given by the laying on of the hands of the apostles (Peter & John), he offered them gifts
19saying, "Now you must immediately give me this authority so that if I would lay hands on someone he would take the Holy Spirit."
20Peter said to him, "May your silver be destroyed with you, because you believe the gift of God is acquired by money.  
21Neither is there for you any part nor any share in this message, for your heart is not right before God. 
22Therefore you must immediately repent from this evil of yours & ask the Lord if He will really forgive the thought of your heart for you,
23for I see that you are in a gall of bitterness, extreme wickedness, & a bond of sin." 
24Simon said, "You must right now ask the Lord about me in order that nothing which you said would come upon me." 
Acts 9:17 TPNT- Ananias left, entered the house, placed his hands on him & said, "Saul (Paul), brother, the Lord has sent me, Jesus the One Who set upon you on the say while you were coming, so that you would regain your sight AND you would be filled with the Holy Spirit."
Acts 10:38 KJV - God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost & power, Who went about doing good & healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him.
Acts 10:44-48 -
44While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. 
45The circumcised (Jewish) believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles,
46for they heard them speaking in tongues & praising God.  Then Peter said,
47"Can anyone (deny) keep these people from being baptized with water
They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have." 
48So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.  
Acts 19:1-7 - 1Paul took the road through the interior & arrived at Ephesus.  There he found some disciples
ACTS 19:2 KJV "He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?
And they said unto him, We have. not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.”
3So he said, "Then in what name were you (water) baptized (immersed)?" 
They replied, "John's baptism."  
4Paul said, "John's (water) baptism was a baptism of repentance. 
He told the people to believe in the One coming after him, that is, in Jesus." 
5On hearing this, they were (water) baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. 
6When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, & they spoke in tongues & prophesied. 
7There were about 12 men in all. 
(Morford footnote, "The laying on of hands for immersion in the Holy Spirit comes from" Acts 19:6.)

Romans 8:26-27 - The (Holy) Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we are to pray for, but the (Holy) Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans (heartaches/ tongues/voice/sounds/unknown languages) that (known) words cannot express.  He Who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the BELIEVERS in accordance with God's will. 

1st Corinthians 14:2 KJV - He that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God, for no man understandeth him.  Howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.
1st Corinthians 14:4 KJV -
He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself (spiritually).
1st Corinthians 14:13 KJV
Let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret tongues (spoken aloud by self or others).
1st Corinthians 14:39  NIV
 - Do not forbid to speak with tongues.
1st Corinthians 14:14-15 -
14If I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. 
15What is it then?  I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the understanding also. 
I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the understanding also.
1st Corinthians 14:22 KJV - Tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not.
2nd Corinthians 14:15 KJV
 - I will pray with the spirit. I will pray with the understanding also. 
I will sing with the spirit. I will sing with the understanding also.

1st John 14:16-18 KJV - I will ask the Father & He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you fore ever...I will not leave you comfortless.  I will come to you.

Isaiah 49:2 KJVer - He has made My mouth like a sharp sword.

"Sometimes" can be God's Holy Spirit interceding inside our hearts & out our mouths. NIV - For sighing comes to me instead of food; my groans pour out like water.

Psalms 38:8 I am faint & severely bruised. I have groaned by reason of the anguish of my heart. (WEB ASV)
Psalms 77:3 I remember God, groan, & complain.  My spirit is overwhelmed. Selah. (See NIV)

Ezekiel 30:24 - Strengthened the arms of the king of Babylon, I have given My sword into his hand.
I have broken the arms of Pharaoh. 
He hath groaned the groans of a pierced one - before him. (YLT) (Prophetic of the Messiah.)

Mark 7:34 Looking up to heaven he groaned, & says to him, Ephphatha, that is, BE opened. (DBY) - Weymouth New Testament - While He (an agony of distress having come upon Him) prayed all the more with intense earnestness. His sweat became like clots of blood dropping on the ground. - King James - When Jesus therefore saw her & the Jews, which came with her, weeping, He groaned in the spirit, & was troubled. - When Jesus had thus said, He was troubled in spirit, testified, & said, Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you shall betray me. NIV - In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. 
We do not know what we ought to pray for, but (Holy) Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words (known language/vocabulary) cannot express.

Baptism of Fire

1st Reinhard Bonnke in Mighty Manifestations: The Gifts & Power of the Holy Spirit. notes that John baptized with water for the forgiveness of sins, but that the resurrected Christ baptizes with the fire of His Holy Spirit for the power to do God's miraculous work in this generation. 
2nd In The Pentecostal Movement (1964) Nils Bloch Hoel MD incorrectly says that tongue-speaking is a psychological illness & a tongues-speaker is a subspecies. 
It is such "theories" that have harmed the psychiatric industry & its patients
His opinion is unscriptural & unGodly.  (CAUTION: Some USA MD's &/or psychiatric institutions are labeling patients with any/all spiritual encounters as mentally ill & their symptoms as psychotic. 
Be reminded, there are 2 invisible spiritual realms, 1 demonic & 1 holy or 1 from hell & the other from heaven. 
In additilon to this there are drugs & illnesses that can cause hullicinations.)
3rd When we ask Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit, we become equipped to function as His son or daughter.
Our switch is turned on to God, so that now at last He can begin to operate through our infant legs & arms to accomplish His will.  Now we can begin, in baby steps, to resist evil & to overcome the enemy of depression, suicide, bitterness, anger, rage, indignation, despair, neediness, fear & all those weights which try to overpower us.  With the baptism in the Holy Spirit can come the speaking in tongues.  (Priest) Father Hampsch has a very short but extremely interesting video tape "Why You Should Pray in Tongues" which one might want to look at:
4th Both ancient Greek & modern Olympics runners carry a torch of fire that is never extinguished. 
Another never extinguishable fire is the Holy Spirit. 
5th It burns in our hearts & passions.  It burns out diseases. 
Whether as a parent, ministry or mentor, we can carry the torch to the hurting & to the next generation.  
In ourselves we can allow the Holy Spirit to burn out all that interferes with His amazing grace. 
6th Praying, anointing with oil, & laying on of hands, all are excellent, but it is the SPEAKING ALOUD of God's personal Words in scripture that have the clout/power/audacity/supremacy to actualize sound into matter. 
Physics has show this scientifically. 
Objects can materialize or disappear to go through walls, based on this phenomena of sound in motion. 
Speaking God's Words in ANY language will perform His Works. 
The human tongue is God's 2 edged sword coming out of our (or His) mouth.  Eureka.
7th The devil works overtime to disallow Christians to rehearse scripture OUT LOUD, as SPOKEN scripture is God's double-edged sword against disease/discouragement/defects/demons/deception/mistakes. 
Satan does NOT want born-again (Holy Spirit filled) Christians to RECOGNIZE it is necessary to enforce their inheritance in Christ, by using SPEECH, the primary method the Trinity used to create/manifest everything.

8th The devil works overtime to intimidate born-again Judeo-Christians from recognizing the significance of or from pursuing the 2nd baptism Jesus has available.  Receiving the infilling of Holy Spirit, allows the 24/7 mentoring, & enabling of an impotent Chritian to more smoothly/efficiently/effectively finish the purpose for which he was born.
9th The devil works overime to discourage Judeo-Christians from accepting/receiving/believing-in/consistently praying/speaking/singing in tongues, God's spiritual supernatural superior weapon against hell/harm/problems.

Kat Kerr mentors that Holy Spirit fire is both an anointing we loose to burn up evil in us & others, but also holy healthy healing laser surgery to both our soul & body. 
2nd, Holy Spirit fire is a step/dimension beyond Holy Spirit baptism.


Alllen, Bruce D. - The Prophetic Promise of the 7th Day - -
Chapter 2 Sanctification and Consecration -
"2 things scripture says that Jesus does today...making a place ready for you &...interceding for you...
The Lord asked me if I would be willing to yield my tongue to Him, that He could pray the purposes of God released on the earth... I found that seasons of intercession would come upon me. 
I have literally spent days praying (in tongues) 'in the Spirit' until the Lord released me."
(Here again we see human flesh being used to express the Father's heart on earth, rather than a distant Jesus, miles away cloistered in heaven.  Remember, God creates via His mouth, not with a magic wand. 
We, indwelt with His Holy Spirit, are His mouthpiece on earth.)
Allen, Bruce D - - Book Preface @ -
Chapter 4 The Sanctified Imagination: Activating Adventure - "When I was 17, I read the book Prison to Praise...prayer in the back that said if you want the baptism in the Holy Spirit, just pray the prayer...
So I...prayed...Immediately I started speaking in tongues... (Subsequently) I realized I had been tricked. 
Every time I would pick up the Bible & begin to read, I would fall asleep. 
Finally...the Lord said to me, 'Well, who do you think doesn't want you to read the Bible'...
I picked up my Bible...& said, 'Devil, if you make me tired, I'm going to read another chapter. 
If you continue to make me tired, I'm going to read the whole book.'  Amazingly, it never happened again." 
"When I was filled with the Holy Spirit, all of a sudden...scriptures were filled with life & revelation."

Bevington, Guy C - Remarkable Miracles -
Chapter 8 Instances of Healing admonishes us "Now here is danger. 
I never ask people to testify to their sanctification (baptism in the Holy Spirit) until they are sure they are sanctified. 
I only encourage them to take it by faith if they & I am satisfied that their consecration is complete. 
Then they may say they have taken sanctification by faith, believe that they are sanctified, & stand on that.  
Never say that you are sanctified until you know it."

Bonnke, Reinhard - Holy Spirit Revelation & Revolution - Exploring Holy Spirit Dimensions -
Speaking in tongues is the only SIGN indicated in scripture as evidence for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is done by Jesus Christ the baptizer, having arisen from the dead & sitting at the right hand of God. 
"NOT everyone who speaks in tongues has been baptized in the Holy Spirit." 
There are people who pretend/attempt to speak in tongues. 
There are demonic spirits who speak tongues or lies through individuals.   

Boone, Pat - A New Song - After his wife received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, Pat did. 
He had difficulty "speaking" in a new/foreign language, but NOT "singing" in Hebrew, which launched his walk into the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement & which remediated their relationship with each other & God, per 3/14/2011 Joni Lamb telecast.

There is the absolute. The Spirit-filled Christian will always believe AND act upon the Word of God."

Brimm, Billye - Re: Smith Wigglesworth - Chapter 25 The Blood & the Last Outpouring - - Here is Wigglesworth's account of what happened from the time he boarded the train to return home to Bradford after having received the baptism in the Holy Spirit at Boddy's place in Sunderland:1 - The 1st thing I did was to telegraph to my home saying,
'I have received the baptism in the Holy Ghost & have spoken in tongues.'
On the train to my home town, the devil began questioning, 'Are you going to take this to Bradford?'
As regards my feelings at the moment, I had nothing to take, but the just do not live by feelings but by faith.
So I shouted out on the railroad coach to everybody's amazement, 'Yes, I'm taking it.' 
A great joy filled me as I made this declaration, but somehow I knew from that moment it would be a great fight all the time.  When I arrived home 1 of my sons said to me, 'Father, have you been speaking in tongues?'
I replied, 'Yes, George.'  'Then let's hear you,' he said...
My wife said to me, 'So you've been speaking with tongues, have you?' I replied, 'Yes.'
'Well,' she said, 'I want you to understand that I am as much baptized as you are & I don't speak in tongues.' 
I saw that the contest was beginning right at home.  'I have been preaching for 20 years,' she continued, 'You have sat beside me on the platform, but on Sunday you will preach yourself.
I'll see what there is in it.'  She kept her word. On Sunday she took a seat at the back of the building.
We had always sat together on the platform until that day.
So the contest had begun right in the church.  There were 3 steps up to the platform. 
As I went up those 3 steps the Lord gave me the passage in Isaiah 61:1, 'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings; unto the meek He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, & the opening of the prison to them that are bound.' 
I was no preacher, but hearing the voice of my Lord speaking those words to me, I began.
I cannot now remember what I said, but my wife was terribly disturbed. 
The bench on which she sat would seat 9 people & she moved about on it until she had sat on every part of it.
Then she said in a voice that all around her could hear, 'That's not my Smith, Lord.  That's not my Smith.'
I was giving out the last hymn when the secretary of the mission stood up & said, 'I want what our leader has received.'
The strange thing was that when he was about to sit down he missed his seat & went right down on the floor.
Then my oldest son arose & said he wanted what his father had, &, too, took his seat right down on the floor.
In a short while there were 11 people right on the floor of that mission. The strangest thing was that they were all laughing in the Spirit & laughing at 1 another. The Lord had really turned again the captivity of Zion & the mouth of His children was being filled with laughter according to the word of the Lord in Psalm 126:1-2.
@ 1Stanley Frodsham, Smith Wiggleswortb: Apostle of Faith (Gospel Publishing House, Springfield, MO 65082)...
I believe we need to return singing about the Blood. Real singing to give the Blood its place in our approach to God.
Not merely to singing just a token song in a service, but to singing a while in honor of the Blood.
The old-timers said that when they sang about the Blood for a while 'a cleansing wave' seemed to sweep over them preceding a wave of the Spirit in power.  The Spirit answers to the Blood. 
The Spirit of Glory must complete our preparation now for the Lord of Glory...
It won't be long now until we complete the circle... We are about to return to the fullness of the Glory of the Father's Presence.  Oh. What a Planner. Oh. What a Plan.  Thank God for the Blood & the Glory."

, Billye – How You Can Pray in the End of Days – Chapter 23
Regarding (praying) “the mysteries of Israel cited in Romans 11:25-26…the best way is to pray in tongues”.

Brooks, Steven - Working with Angels - -
Chapter 5 The Slipstream of Heaven shares that Steven's praying in tongues, results in God being able to do much more in & through Steven than He would or could ordinarily, if Steven did not pray in tongues. 
Chapter 7 shares how Steven received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues.   
"The Lord then said...'No one needed to pray for Elisha to see. He lived in this realm on a consistent basis. 
This realm is known as the slipstream of Heaven
It is a heavenly flow that you can merge into where the realm of the prophet & seer anointing becomes activated in your life.  In this place the deeper mysteries of My Word are revealed to you. 
In the slipstream, your spiritual eyesight becomes greatly illuminated & you move with much greater ease in your walk with Me.  I desire for all of My people to live in this heavenly stream
"1 of the easiest & most refreshing ways to merge into the slipstream of Heaven is by praying in tongues for extended periods of time.  Even if a person does not have a large block of uninterrupted time available for non-stop prayer, a few minutes here or there can really become a lot in the course of an entire day...
I have enjoyed praying in tongues every day."

Burt, Arthur - Around the World in 88 Years - -
Chapter 12 - Climb the Mountain - Although Arthur speaks in tongues, he contends that one's fruit is more important than the ability to speak in tongues - to both others & God.  "It would be incredibly unscriptural to exalt somebody who speaks a few words in tongues as being superior to a man like Billy Graham who has preached the Gospel to more people than any other human being in the history of the world."

Chapter 3 Opening the Promised Gift
shares that speaking aloud in tongues is THE hidden key to moving in the power & anointing of the Holy Spirit baptism, which is available to everyone who takes Jesus as his savior & is baptized in water. -
Chapter 7 The Secret of Paul's Effectiveness, says Mahesh, is speaking in tongues. 
Although Paul was a brilliant scholar of scripture & theology, he failed to recognize Jesus as messiah, until God knocked him off his horse. 
He was introduced to the Trinity & subsequently had ongoing intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit, initiated through speaking in tongues. 
It is the Holy Spirit Who personally taught him all that the 12 disciples learned fellowshipping with Jesus. 
God's wisdom is always imparted from His Spirit to our spirit. 
It is the mind who accepts or rejects this spiritual wisdom.  The human mind is never able to discern/learn Truth, nor is the human body ever good enough to work its way into the graces of God.  Christ did ALL at the cross. 
We either accept or reject what Christ did & Holy Spirit reveals to us (especially as/when we pray in tongues). 
Praying in tongues permits the Holy Spirit to do miracles in us & in others, while hiding His work from Satan.
The longer/more we pray in tongues, the greater/more complete will be His work.

Chapter #1 summary - -
"Mahesh worked at a state hospital for the mentally handicapped in Lubbock, Texas. He tells the story of a mentally retarded boy of 16 named 'Stevie'. Stevie not only had the handicap of mental retardation, but he also hurt himself by crying out & beating himself in the face constantly. Despite all the medical treatment at the hospital, Stevie continued to get worse & worse. Mahesh shares that Stevie could sense God's love coming from him, because Stevie would put his head on Mahesh's shoulder & cry. Mahesh began to ask the Lord what His answer was for Stevie.   God spoke clearly to Mahesh saying, 'This kind does not go out except by prayer & fasting'. 
Mahesh immediately recognized God had replied by giving Matthew 17:21. So Mahesh responded to the voice of the Holy Spirit & began fasting & praying for Stevie. On the 14th day, the Lord told Mahesh to go pray for Stevie. 
Mahesh asked Stevie to come into his small office. He then prayed a prayer of authority in Jesus' Name. 
Stevie was instantly delivered of an evil spirit. From that point on, Stevie never hurt himself again on purpose. 
All the wounds on his face healed over the next few months."

Chapter 6 Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Holy Spirit anointing, power, & possibly baptism was found on a few appointed/available men in the Old Testament, (whereas God's baptism in the Holy Spirit became available to all men after Jesus was glorified - John 7:39).  In the New Testament "the (initial) sign of speaking with other tongues followed the experience of receiving the fullness of the Holy Spirit...
The 120 disciples' experience of the Holy Spirit was certain beyond question...
Their representative, Peter, spoke, 'Having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, He hath shed forth this (speaking in other languages/tongues), which ye now see and hear (Acts 2:33).'"
"Peter was saying that there was objective proof of the experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit...
If we don't have evident proof.  If we continue the spiritual struggle, not being sure whether we have received the Holy Spirit or not, how can we become bold & powerful witnesses?"  (8 years later) in Samaria under the ministry of Philip, deliverances, miracles & healings resulted in salvation & water baptism for the attendees. 
However, no baptism in the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in tongues, occurred until Peter & John ministered there for that purpose, with the laying on of hands.  Approx 40 years after Pentecost Saul became Paul.
In Damascus when Ananias prayed and laid hands on Paul, he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit
"Salvation is received through regeneration by believing in the work of the Holy Spirit, but authority & power can only be received when a born-again Christian receives the fullness of the Holy Spirit after believing." 
"Speaking in tongues in itself is not the fullness of the Holy Spirit, but as confirmed in the Scriptures tongues is the common external sign that a person has received the fullness of the Holy Spirit."
"Speaking in tongues and the baptism of the Holy Spirit are NOT synonymous. 
Some people today mistakenly say that the Assemblies of God teach this...
Almost without exception, as the final & most common sign, the recipients spoke with other tongues."
Chapter 11 The Vocal Gifts - The Gift of Tongues 
"When speaking in tongues is a sign, the tongues cease after the initial baptism of the Holy Spirit
In order to continue speaking in tongues a person would subsequently receive the tongues as a gift...
Those who have received the speaking in tongues as a gift can speak in tongues anytime as they pray...
By using this heavenly language the door is opened for us to experience the deep revelations of God."
"Translation generally gives the word-for-word meaning of a foreign language, while interpretation (of tongues typically) makes clear the overall meaning of a foreign language." 
We should never regard tongues interpretation as being equal with the Bible.

Clark, John senior - Speaking in Tongues at Spirit Baptism - free -

Clark, Randy - There Is More - - In chapter 13, Randy says that he received his prayer language/tongues in 1971, but that it did not coincide with his receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit. 
He notes that many Pentecostals believe that speaking in tongues must come at the same time 1 is baptized in the Holy Spirit, as evidence of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit; while many Evangelicals believe that the Holy Spirit baptism must come at the time of conversion. Randy notes that John Fletcher (John Wesley's associate) taught that one can have many effusions/pouring outs of the Holy Spirit (1 at salvation/water baptism, 1 at confirmation/Holy Spirit baptism/speaking in tongues, + other effusions as God deems expedient).  Randy urges us to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit, resulting in (1) a deepening relationship with Christ & (2) much fruit.

Copeland, Kenneth - Kenneth Copeland Ministries - John G Lake - -
Many people believed that John Lake had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit due to his healing ministry, but in fact it was later that he received the baptism in the Holy Sprit & God confirmed it by announcing, "You are now baptized in the Holy Spirit."  (Remember, God also made an announcement when the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus like a dove right after He was baptized in water by John the Baptist.) 
Speaking in tongues is considered by many to be evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 
In 1 of John Lake's services, a teenage girl named Hilda Daniels chanted in a foreign tongue (which a fellow from East India recognized).  The message was an explanation of salvation. 
Lake shared a similar experience where he spoke (witnessed of Jesus) in a tongue (Italian of Naples, Italy - unknown to him) for 15 minutes to a group of laborers at the train station in Logansport, Indiana. 
(Please take note/warning that some men not of God also have this skill, but it is of the unholy spirit!)

Action Faith Ministries + New Life Ministries (Norvel Hayey Ministries, New Life Bible College, New Life Maternity Home, New Life Missions Department, New Life Community Kitchen) -
Chapter 4 Peter Faith or Abraham Faith  "Negative thoughts destroy faith.  When you allow yourself to think the, they take root.  Capture those negative thoughts & pull them out immediately, praying in tongues. 
All devils have to leave your mind alone as long as you pray in tongues, because you are praying for Christ's mind."

DeGrandis, Father Robert in The 10 Commandments of Prayer recommends that we pray in tongues to allow the Holy Spirit to minister to the root cause (such as deep emotional problems) of physical ailments.
Anyone who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit can pray for himself or for another this way, using tongues (another language; sometimes called the language of angels; a 2nd known language, but unknown to the speaker). 
Father warns us regarding praying, in any capacity, including tongues, to be persistent & not to quit: 
Life, marriage, as well as the baptism in the Holy Spirit has a honey-moon period. 
The honeymoon always ends, at least for awhile. 
Then comes the school of hard knocks, such as Moses & his nation encountered in the desert. 
In the desert of life we experience growing pains.  We finally get enlightenment. 
Then the emotional/maturity cycle begins again.

Eckhardt, John - - "Praying in tongues keep us built up & edified that we may be strong in the Lord & the power of His might (1 Corinthians 14:4; Jude 20; Ephesians 6:10-12). 
Tongues are needed to successfully wrestle against the powers of darkness. 
Speaking in tongues during deliverance sessions irritates & weakens demon spirits
There is also a demon spirit named False Tongues that counterfeits the genuine manifestation of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus cast out demon spirits by the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit & tongues, we can drive out evil spirits."

Ferrell, L Emerson - The Supernatural Believing the Consciousness of Christ - -
Chapter 3 Believing Is the Substance of Our Reality - "Many people believe & even say that speaking in tongues is the evidence of being 'filled' with the Holy Spirit.  Nothing can be further from the truth. 
Speaking in an unknown tongue
is a gift...
Is it possible for someone filled to capacity with the Holy Spirit to sin?...No...
Holy" Spirit's "purpose for leading Jesus into the wilderness was to complete His total consecration that He began at the river Jordan...
Speaking with tongues
is a tool that the Lord will give to any who ask, as an aid...for His occupation."
Ferrell, L. Emerson - Immersed in Him - - also introductory video - -
Emerson gives his personal testimony + his understanding that there needs to be 3 water immersions (baptisms), in the name of the Father, the Son, AND the Holy Spirit... (The 3rd seems to be for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, Who empowers us to be useful to the Trinity &  imparts both spiritual gifts and spiritual fruit enabling us to raise the dead, heal, deliver & do miracles.  Emerson suggests that one's operation in these powers is the "sign" marking one's passport into the Kingdom of God, rather than one's "speaking in tongues". 
Jesus began His ministry immediately after His baptism by John. 
Jesus said per Luke 4:21 & Isaiah 61:1-2, "TODAY this scripture has been fulfilled in your ears.")

"I opened my mouth to speak a few words of their (tribal) language...Then it happened.  Holy Spirit took complete control of my tongue & vocal organs, & from my lips poured a torrent of words that I had never learned...
Since receiving the Holy Spirit (baptism) 10 years earlier, I had spoken in tongues many times, but never under conditions like these."

Hagin, Kenneth E - Tongues: Beyond the Upper Room. - -
Often "Christians don’t realize the value derived from exercising that gift, nor do they understand the scope, the purpose & the use, of tongues."

, Chapter 5 How I Was Filled with the Holy Spirit  Excellent.  Shares how NOT to rely on feelings. -
Part 1
, Chapter 6 God Will Visit Hungry Hearts - "The denominational pastor exclaimed, 'Is that what you Pentecostal people call the baptism in the Holy Ghost
Why, for the past 35 years, all my converts have experienced that.  We just call it 'getting sanctified'.'"
Part 1, Chapter 7 Guideline to Receiving the Holy Spirit - "A lot of folks miss it. 
They sit around waiting for the Holy Ghost to do the talking... Holy Ghost is the One Who gives utterance. 
But it is not the Holy Ghost doing the talking.  There is a difference." 
Acts 2:4
They were all filled with the Holy Ghost & (they) began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (unction/urging/prompting). 
Acts 10:46
They heard them (not Him/Holy Sprit) speak with tongues
1st Corinthians 14:18 - I
(not the Holy Spirit) speak with tongues more than ye all.
Isaiah 28:11
With stammering lips & another tongue will he speak..."
Nothing in your life would keep you from being filled with the Holy Ghost.  You have no secret sin that would hinder you from receiving the Holy Spirit...There is no such thing as a secret (personal sin) you don't know about. (because) Holy Ghost or your own conscience will tell you.  Your conscience doesn't tell you anything, don't try to drag something up." (such as, on a psychiatrist's couch or in a church confessional box or in the middle of the night under darkness & heaviness)  (Postscript.  Sometimes the Holy Spirit will reveal at a later date things which He needs to deal with, when we are more spiritually mature, such as curses, ancestral sins, sins committed by others while we were in the womb, traumas, etc)..."Learn how to answer (read aloud to) the devil with the Word if you're ever going to amount to anything in the Lord.  Someone might say, 'Why, I can't rebuke the devil. 
I'm scared of him,'  But if that's what you're saying, you've already let the devil take you captive. 
You've already played into his hands, for the spirit of fear is of the enemy...
You can always whip him with the (spoken) Word"...
"It's the blood that made you worthy to receive the Holy Ghost. 
It isn't anything you did. (or failed to do)  It's the blood of Jesus that made you a new creature...
Don't let the devil or anyone else, including yourself, talk you out of what God has already given you"...
(Another mistake is one's mind attempting to filter/judge/listen to/hear/comprehend if the sound/words are authentic.  One's mind needs to be on Jesus and NOT on self/flesh.  Critical self blocks the flow. 
The more God conscious one is & the less SELF-conscious one is, the better, the more open our hearts are to God & His workings. 
Psychiatrists often label other's with "character disorders" of the mind/behavior regarding the flesh. 
It may be that the degree of speaking in tongues is a barometer of one's spiritual character/maturity/muscle, at least for some Christians... However, KE Hagin warns us NEVER to encourage those who are NOT born again to receive the baptism of the Holy spirit, lest they take in an unholy spirit; for Satan is a counterfeiter, who can provide one with demonic language.)
Part 2 Chapter 10 A Supernatural Means of Speaking to God  "Holy Spirit isn't the One praying. 
He is helping you pray by giving you utterance in your spirit...
Our (invisible) spirit MAN can pray apart from our understanding." 
[One can whisper (speak under one's breath) prayers (pray/sing in tongues) all day long while doing one's duties.
Thank You God for the power of Your mouth, by which You created all visible & invisible things. 
Speech is such a powerful & significant aspect of Your kingdom work. 
You gave Lucifer charge of music, where sound/ears/hearing is imperative. 
Quantum physics gives us a hint that all created matter consists of musical sounds. 
We have only begun to be in awe.]
Part 2 Chapter 11 A Means of Spiritual Edification -
A Personal Example of 'Charging Myself Up
shares that KE Hagin's greatest healings/deliverances/miracles occurred AFTER spending prolonged times praying in tongues. 
A woman committed to solitary isolation in a mental institution for 2.5 years was permanently delivered by Hagin's obeying God's words, "Go stand in front of her & say, 'Come out, thine unclean spirit, in the Name of Jesus.'"
Part 2 Chapter 13 More Scriptural Purposes for Speaking in Other Tongues 
Like physical or mental exercise, "Praying in other tongues is 1 of the greatest spiritual exercises there is, along with feeding your spirit on God's Word."
"Physical healing at the same time a person got baptized in the Spirit was a frequent occurrence"...
Praying daily in tongues may provide emotional rest + prevent a nervous breakdown. 
"We emphatically need this supernatural mans of communication with Him...
No matter what a believer feels or does not feel, when he speaks in tongues, he is being built up."
Part 3 Chapter 14 Five Common Misconceptions about Speaking in Tongues -
"If I hadn't started praying in tongues as an act of my own will, that (heavenly) 'gusher' never would have come.  Praying in tongues like that is just like drilling an oil well...
There is a difference between praying with tongues as an act of your will & praying with the anointing...that deeper realm of prayer, praying by the anointing of the Holy Ghost. 
That's when miracles happen and revelation comes.  Thank God for praying in the Spirit. 
That day it took me almost 5 hours to get into that deeper realm of prayer. 
But as I kept on praying every day in other tongues, I came to the place where I could get to that place in the Spirit in 10 minutes"...When we...speak an (un) known language, satan does not understand... 
"That's (1 reason) why the devil hates tongues so much & fights it."
Part 3 Chapter 15 Common Excesses Regarding Speaking in Tongues -
Interceding/travailing in tongues prior to alter calls will assist in others being born-again + help new converts put their roots deep into Christ.  "Pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus. 
But you can talk to the Holy Spirit because He is a divine you. 
Then...begin to pray in other tongues."  "When that stronger anointing comes upon me, I pray in tongues as hard & fast as I can.  I keep praying that way until the burden lifts & I sense a note of victory."
Part 3 Chapter 16 The Scriptural Scope of Praying in Tongues -
For born again Spirit filled Christians the expert Counselor is living right inside of your inner man
To allow Him to counsel you, one needs to spend DAILY time with Him praying in tongues, for beginners. 
The more time, the better.  Not in minutes, but in hours.  This is NEVER a waste of time. 
It is the best investment one will ever have with the most interest/returns/value. 
According to GOD, "Most Christians do NOT need (any sort of human) counseling." 
What they DO need is to take that time spent at a psychiatrist's office & spend it on their knees... 
Additionally, one will begin to recognize God's voice, which is a marvelous benefit...
The majority of Christians reason & plan in the mental realm, but fail to sufficiently spend enough time praying in tongues.  Thus many go in wrong directions.
Hagin, Kenneth E @
Tongues: Beyond the Upper Room.-.10/2008 excerpt titled Prying in Live with God's Will in The Word of Faith magazine - "We are praying in line with God's perfect will when we pray in tongues."
Hagin, Kenneth E - I Believe in Visions -
Chapter 1 How God Raised Me from a Deathbed shares his learning that Christ obtained ALL (salvation/healing/baptism of the Holy Spirit/tongues) & that we need n@ot re-obtain (wrestle from Satan) what He has already obtained, but rather just receive.  Just retrieve/accept & open like a birthday gift or inheritance. 
2nd, we are NEVER to look at or rely on feelings/sight manifestation as evidence, but only on His Word in Scripture.  Otherwise Satan or the flesh will overrule/deceive/trick/lie to us.
Chapter 7 A Hospital Visitor 
"I have prayed as long as 6 hours a day in tongues & then prayed the interpretation in English...
None of this comes from my own mind... It is a greater blessing to use PROPHECY in prayer.  
It lifts one higher than anything else, because prophecy carries greater inspiration  than tongues. 
Praying in this manner is NOT limited to ministers.  All Spirit-filled Christians can do it."

Chapter #1.  A retelling of the book of Acts, using the imagination. -
(Bottom line.  If a Christian has Holy Spirit indwelling, but neglects to receive & pray in Holy Spirit's gift of tongues, we will be unable to move/function in spiritual power, in same manner a car cannot move without the infilling of gas, on a regular basis.  We cannot run on empty. 
Mechanically, praying in tongues is the oil that lubricates the Holy Spirit's operation in our lives.

Hayes, Norvel - What Causes Jesus to Work Miracles - -
Chapter 2 Miracles Come Through Faith - "God is saying to you...'The reason I want you to speak in an unknown tongue is because when you do so you speak directly to Me & no one can understand you. 
The 2nd reason I want you to speak in an unknown tongue is to edify yourself, to build yourself up
Hayes, Norvel - Understanding the Ministry of Visions - -
Chapter 5 Visions Can Impart Knowledge - Praying in tongues keeps Satan from sabotaging us when we pray in our native language.  2nd, praying in tongues enlists/utilizes the Holy Spirit to pray with our human spirit aligning our  prayers with the will/intentions of God/Jesus. 
When we pray the price  to consistently pray in tongues, we are able to break the power of the enemy over the situation & to help the Trinity set the captives free; we are Jesus' body on earth. 
He, via the Holy Spirit in us, typically only works through us, rather than apart from us. 
Thus when we pray (in our native tongue) & do not act (heal/deliver).  He seldom intervenes.
Chapter 9 How to Keep Your Vision Alive  "Pray in tongues every day... I usually pray in tongues all day... Praying is hard work sometimes.  You may never feel like praying... Make yourself pray...
The natural part of you will talk you out of believing... Your natural mind will come into operation so strong it will make you wonder why what you're praying or doesn't happen or question if it's ever going to happen...
You've got to pray in tongues... You're responsible to build yourself up. 
If you don't pray in the Holy Ghost, your (human) spirit will be so weak...Satan...he'll steal your vision...
After Satan is bound you, you have to put action to your faith.  Walk the floor & confess the opposite of what the devil is doing... Confessing for about 30 minutes in English, spend another the Holy Ghost...don't ever look at your vision through your natural eyes... Always look at a situation with the eyes of your (born-again) spirit man."

The Baptism of Fire
section contends, "There are 3 baptisms: water, the Holy Ghost & fire...
Only a small number have been baptized in the fire of God

As long as you leave off the fire, you will stay in some degree of rebellion as a child of God. 
But if you will spend time praying in the Spirit (tongues) & yield yourself to Him, the Greater One Who lives inside you.  He will burn you out of you."

Heflin, Ruth Ward - REVIVAL GLORY (495KB) -
Chapter 13 - Resting in the Glory
- "
I began to sing in the Spirit & to speak TO the flood...
Later the pastor’s wife called us to say that theirs was the only house in the area that had not suffered severe damage from the flood.  God had given them a great miracle."
Chapter 16 - Letting the Glory Flow - When the river of God is released in our lives, it flows out through other tongues.  When you speak in tongues, you are participating in the river.
You are letting the river flow through you.   God has chosen to let the river come out of us.
Through praising & worshipping Him, we give the river an opportunity to flow... God is looking for yielded tongues.
When someone yields to the Holy Spirit & gives Him a voice, He can do amazing things in our midst...
Ezekiel identified the believer with that heavenly (many waters) sound.
That doesn’t mean that you necessarily sing well.
It means that you are in contact with the river & that the river is flowing through you... The time will come that the whole Bride of Christ will have a voice like this, with the sound of glory on it, 'the sound of many waters.' 
The river is not only with us wherever we happen to be at the moment, but it is in us & when we speak, that river can be heard in the sound of our voices.
Ezekiel said:  When they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings. 
There was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, & had let down their wings.

Ezekiel 1:24-25
In Hebrew this word voice is the same as the word sound. Ezekiel was hearing 'the sound of the Almighty' coming forth from the living creatures. So 'the sound of God’s voice' is 'as the noise of great waters.'
The descriptive phrase that speaks of God’s voice becomes the descriptive phrase that speaks of the voice of the Bride of Christ. Whether we are speaking a word of prophecy, giving forth a word of knowledge, or just asking God for guidance, we can speak forth the glory of the Lord with our lips. Let the river flow.  Get into this move of the Holy Ghost.  The enemy will try every way he can to paralyze you so that you cannot be moved by the Spirit.
But if you will resist everything that he tries to do, you will be victorious.  Resist him in Jesus' name.
Say to the enemy, 'I am determined to be moved by the Spirit of God.  You cannot hold me back'...
Every gift of the Spirit should be as speaking in tongues is: totally spontaneous...
I saw the river of God pouring out of people’s lips.
I knew that the source of the river on the Earth is the mouths of the believers... Wonderful revelation came forth. 
Some saw the rainbow of glory coming out of the mouths of people in the river. 
I saw the 7 lamps of fire that burn before the throne flowing out of people’s mouths in the river.
Every aspect of God that you could think about was flowing out of the mouths of the people in revelation knowledge.  Everything that He is is in the river. He is the river.  This is 1 of the ways He manifests Himself.
When the river bubbles up within us, it is God moving in the depths of our souls. 
When His revelation begins to flow forth from our mouths, it is God speaking to us & through us...
This phrase “living water” means 'flowing water.'  Jewish people will never be baptized in water that is not 'chai,' alive & that means moving, flowing. In our experience, there must be an intake & outlet.
There must be a flow in & out.  Jesus is the living water.  He wants to flow in & through us. 
With the flow of the river comes the revelation of God...
Lord, Cause us to flow like a mighty river.  Bring forth the ease of flowing.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Edited Excerpt - "When you become born again, Holy Spirit takes up residence in you. This is only the beginning. 
God has much more for you.
The moment you make Christ your personal Savior, His blood shed for your sins seals you into a covenant relationship with God (perhaps in the same manner the Old Testament girl became bethrod/engaged/promised to a Jewish body prior to the wedding). 
You become adopted (legally deeded) into His family (as) His dearly loved child.
When Jesus comes into your heart, the (Holy) Spirit of God takes up residence within your reborn, human spirit (perhaps in same manner as a marriage consumation).
We are a spirit, have a soul, & live in a physical body, so when we are born-again, Holy Spirit intertwines with our reborn, human spirit to become the 'temple of God.'  (see 1 Corinthians 3:16).
[Kat Kerr believes the salvation experience allows Christ's Spirit to be alongside us, whereas His baptism allows Christ's Spirit to indwell us]...When we are born-again, the Spirit of God is living inside us.
When we receive the baptism in the Spirit, we receive an increase in God’s power & authority to be a witness, as well as ability to accomplish our God-given purpose. Since we have the Spirit of God living on the inside of us, we possess everything that we will ever need in life, because He is the Giver of Life.
When we have the Author of Life living within us, we are able to overcome anything against us...
I had read Dennis Bennett’s book, The Holy Spirit & You: A Study Guide to the SpiritFilled Life.
(This is an excellent book on the person & gifts of the Holy Spirit.)
At the end of the book was a little prayer to receive the Holy Spirit & be released into tongues.
I prayed that prayer & did not feel a thing, nothing at all, no lightning bolts, no goosebumps, nothing.
I thought, 'Well, I read the book, did what it said & did everything the Scriptures told me to do, so I guess I must have it.'
The book told me to step out in faith & begin to speak in a new language as the Spirit of God inspired me, so I did.
The word I spoke was somewhat strange. I thought, “I’m making this up; I know I am.
I don’t feel anything at all.  My lips aren’t swelling, my tongue isn’t shaking & my voice isn’t quivering.
Nothing.' I only had 3 little syllables: 'en-ti-ki'...
I continued repeating over & over the 3 syllables I had received as a prayer language.
I repeated them everywhere I went, all the while never feeling a thing.
I talked to my pastor the next day & told him, 'I received tongues.'  He said, 'Oh, that’s wonderful. Let me hear.'
I thought with a sigh, 'Well, here goes,' & said, my 3 syllables, 'en-ti-ki.'
He commented, 'Oh, yeah, okay,' but sounded doubtful.  I did not allow his disbelief to ruin my walk of faith.
I constantly fought the thought, 'You’re just making this up; it’s (just) baby talk. You’re making a fool of yourself.'
I knew I was chasing after God & continued repeating what I had received, however.
I had read the Scripture that says, if you are faithful with a little, God will give you much (Matthew 25:2123).
I knew I had to be faithful with my 3 syllables, because I wanted more.
I thought that maybe 1 day there would be an explosion of tongues in my spirit, & that is exactly what happened.
1 day as I was driving my car, repeating my 3 syllables, saying them backward, forward, upside down & inside out; singing, talking, & even shouting them, a flood of utterance came forth with new words & syllables I had never heard before.  Like a river released inside my spirit, water was now gushing forth.
I had been faithful with little & God gave me abundance.
It might be only a drop at 1st or even a small trickle, but it can easily become a stream or a mighty, rushing river.
Speaking of you, Jesus promised, 'From His innermost being will flow rivers of living water' (John 7:38)...
Mary Goddard...guided me into the 9 gifts of the Spirit & in other areas...
She was founder of a ministry called Christian Services.  Following her retirement in 1990, I became its overseer.
Attending her meetings was like sitting at the feet of Jesus for me, because His essence filled the room when she spoke. She taught the importance of praying in tongues. She would say, 'You need to charge your battery to edify your spirit man.'  The secret of a successful Christian life is to 'walk in the Spirit.'
Praying in the Spirit empowers us to walk in it. When we walk in the Spirit, we do what is pleasing to God...
She suggested we begin by praying 1 hour a day & promised that we would be edified in our inner man.
She believed supernatural things would begin to happen to us. I returned home from that class.
I could not wait to begin putting her advice into practice. I started praying.
After 15 minutes, I thought I had prayed 4 hours, because it had been so much work. My flesh was resisting.
I could not feel the anointing of God. I was wondering if anything was really happening as I prayed.
However, I forced myself to keep on praying until my hour was up; it felt like I had prayed for 10 hours.
The next day I tried again.  I kept recalling what Mary said, 'You will be edified. 
Supernatural things will start to happen when you pray 1 hour a day in tongues.'
However, I did not feel 'edified' after praying. Whatever it felt like to be edified, I was not experiencing it.
Instead, I felt like I had fought a war for 1 entire hour; I was drained.
Nevertheless, I continued to believe the Word that says you edify yourself when you pray in tongues.
I thought, 'Even though I don’t feel edified, I’m going to keep doing it, because the Word says I need to.'
I continued this every day.  Sometimes would do 2-3 of those 1-hour sessions of prayer in tongues.
I began using every opportunity to pray in the Spirit:
When in the shower, cooking, as I walked down the street, even during vacuuming. 
I made it my goal to pray in the Spirit as many hours a day as I could manage.
In those early days, I prayed 6-8 hours a day in tongues, yet never felt a thing.
Soon, however, I noticed that divine appointments, miracles, prophetic revelations & other manifestations of the supernatural were beginning to happen, but they always came after I had prayed, never during my prayer time.
The Lord taught me that if I continued to pray in tongues, His grace would come upon me.
Grace is not only 'undeserved favor' but it is also His divine influence upon your life.
When you have His grace, you do not have to strive.
His influence comes upon you, & you do His will effortlessly, without thinking & trying.
It is as if you are being swept along in the flow of His peace & power. You find yourself in the will of God, doing, embracing & getting the fruit of the will of God, all the while wondering, 'How did I do that?'
It is because grace is multiplied to you when you pray in tongues.  That is the edification process.
The Kingdom is not about your accomplishments.
It is about the energizing work of the Holy Spirit in your life that enables you, through grace, to accomplish God’s purposes. If every person reading these words would begin praying in tongues 6-12 hours a day, I believe we could birth in our world the revival that already dwells in us.  We could release by faith, what we possess.
It might not be easy, but I believe it is just that simple.  The question is: will we do it?  Can we commit to it...
I prophesy that if you will begin praying in tongues regularly for extended periods, things will shift for you.
There are future revivalists, world changers, & history makers reading this book right now who will be activated through praying in tongues. Seasons of praying in tongues are being released to you as you read these words."

Chapter 4 Spirit Man Arise   During an annual month of seeking the Lord's direction, the Lord revealed that it would be a dry year.  Her spirit would have no feedback from soul nor flesh to encourage her. 
The war plan was to daily pray in tongues + daily to confess the covenant promises found in scripture. 
Hebrews 4:12 NASB
  It is the Word of God that rightly divides between soul & spirit. 
"Our born-again spirit will always adhere to the truth of the Word of God regardless of our thoughts, feelings, or circumstances...Our emotions...can betray us. Our thoughts can deceive us. 
The (uninspired/unmotivated/ unpassionate) daily degrees of the promises of God over my life (for at least an hour) & the hour each day I prayed in tongues, truly gave definition to my spirit."
Chapter 7 The Helper (or the Guide) clarifies, "Baptize means to be fully immersed or to be completely filled. 
When you ask the Lord to baptize you in the (Holy) Spirit (which is a subsequent experience to salvation) you are actually inviting the Holy Spirit's presence to fill your soul (mind) & body, as well as your spirit man, where He already resides.  (if you have asked Him to forgive 7 live in you)...
This is actually an act of consecration or being set apart for God."
"In addition to asking for an initial infilling of the Spirit, we can also ask for a refill whenever we need one. 
Ephesians 5:18
...Be (continually) filled with the Spirit. (KJV
The word 'filled' here is written in a present, ongoing tense." 
"Don't allow your feelings or lack of them to determine if your experience is valid. 
You are filled because you have asked & He has answered.  The Scripture says so." 
There "are 70 functions of the Holy Spirit found in the New Testament. 
He is in you & with you to perform these," including: giving power to cast out devils. Matthew 12:28

Kostelnik, Joseph - Prayer in the Spirit, the Missing Link - + -
"What Christians today lack is an intelligent, daily communion with Heavenly Father through the Grace of Jesus Christ by means of prayer in the Holy Spirit...
Tongues are real languages. From the 1st mention of it by Jesus in Mark 16:17, on through all the references to it in the Book of Acts & the Epistles, the same Greek root word, or a form of it, is used. It simply means language. 
Speaking in tongues is the ability of a born-again, Spirit-filled Christian to talk, pray, sing or praise God supernaturally in a language he has never learned. The words or utterance originate in the Mind of the in-dwelling Holy Spirit & are spoken out of the human spirit while bypassing the believer’s conscious mind.
'For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful'
(I Cor. 14:14). “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God:
for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries' (I Cor. 14:2)...
When a believer speaks in tongues his understanding is (usually) unfruitful for others, not (necessarily) himself. 
Although the believer (often) does not know the precise meaning of the words he is uttering in prayer to God, yet he is (often) aware of the truths Holy Spirit reveals to him during, & (or) as a result of, communing in the Holy Ghost...
'For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth (heareth, Gk.) him, howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries (sacred secrets/hidden truths)' (I Cor. 14:2)...
In I Cor. 14:15, Paul defines praying in tongues as praying 'with the Spirit'...
When one is praying in the Spirit he is under the direct control & (or) inspiration of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4)...
One of the 1st benefits of speaking in tongues is the increased ability it gives us to worship God...
As we pray in the Spirit, our mind & emotions enter into a deep peace.
We are enabled to commune with the Father, spirit to Spirit, while bypassing our conscious understanding...
We are enabled to enter into a God-directed life. We are released from the prison of our own mental limitations...
God here recorded for all time and eternity that we enter the 'Promised Land': by speaking.
Although Moses refused to 'speak TO the Rock,' over 1,500 years later a group of 120 followers of God did when Christ, 'the Exalted Rock,' poured out the Gift of the Holy Spirit upon them. These believers entered into 'rest.' 
The Promised Land today represents the Baptism in the Holy Spirit & the higher Christian life.
It is a life of blessings & victory...
Praying in the Spirit will do for our inner man what physical exercise does for our body
The Lord called me to minister in Australia in March of 1976 while I was attending seminary.
It wasn’t until May of 1982 that I 1st set foot in Sydney’s international airport...
Unfortunately, after some meetings, although the ministry was received quite well, none of the churches seemed to be able to offer the sponsorship which the government required.  Suppose I would have lamented, 'Maybe it’s not God’s will after all.'  No doubt, the plan of God for my life & my ministry in Australia would have been thwarted.
Instead, I prayed from 10:00 a.m. 1 morning until 4:55 p.m.
At the end of that prayer time I saw in the Spirit a golden door which swung open.
The Lord then gave me the scripture:
'I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it' (Rev. 3:8). 
The next day that verse became a reality as I traveled north to Brisbane & eventually was sponsored by the largest full-gospel organization in Australia...
Any 1 or more of the 9 gifts listed in I Cor. 12:8-10 may be manifested by any Spirit-filled believer who desires to be so used...
The battle Yahweh would wage against the enemies of His people in the Person of the Holy Spirit, would be fought by that the (Person of the Holy) Spirit being upon His servants, & His Words being (spoken) in their mouths...
Our enemies are spiritual ones: the Devil & demons...
We conclude:
1st, God is aware of the oppression of the Enemy against His people (Isa. 59:16).
2nd, God Himself will put on the armor & fight the battle for them (Isa. 59:16).
3rd, He will wage this warfare against the real enemies of His people (Isa. 59:18-19)
4th, this warfare will be waged in the Person of the Holy Spirit (Isa. 59:19).
5th, this will be accomplished by the Holy Spirit being upon His servants, & His words being in their mouths (Isa. 59:21)...Eph. 6:10-18...
We make an appointment with our Divine Counselor concerning a particular need or situation saying:
“Here’s the problem Lord; now what are we going to do about it?”
Praise God for the Holy Spirit’s ministry on our behalf as we then yield to Him in prayer, allowing Him to take the case before the Throne of Grace for us according to the will of God, in such a manner that we know the answer will be forth-coming...the opposite of living our lives in the flesh, by the dictates of our carnal reasoning & fallen physical senses.
Just as Adam & Eve were given a choice between the Tree of Life & the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, so we, too, have the blessed privilege of fasting from the devil’s offer of a counterfeit existence.
In contrast, we can choose Life (God’s provision for each particular situation) in every crisis...
precisely why Jesus could be so bold as to declare if we would continually come to Him we would never hunger. 
If we would constantly trust in Him we would never thirst (John 6:35).
David explained what it means to trust in Yahweh:
“Trust in Him all times; ye nation, pour out your heart before Him: Elohim [the Trinity] is a refuge for us” (Ps. 62:8, Heb.).  It is simply a matter of personal, intimate prayer. "Pray without ceasing" (I Thess. 5:17).
This verse illustrates the 3rd aspect of the Spirit’s ministry for us in prayer.
We can, by an act of our will, pray in tongues, undertone, throughout the day (in much the same way as the unsaved whistle, hum or sing undertone) & thereby authorize Holy Spirit to minister through us, either for us or others, as He deems spiritually necessary.
In this way, we can be used of God to make intercession & supplication for all saints in various evil days known perhaps only to God Himself (Eph. 6:17-20). 
The Promise of the Holy Spirit, Himself, in fullness is, in fact, God’s All-inclusive Gift.
Let us treasure Him & yield to Him daily through (tongues) prayer in the Spirit, the missing link...
Pray for the Lord to give the people their daily bread...
God has ordained prayer, communication & fellowship, as His divine means of union & communion with Him.
His very Son depended upon this spiritual interaction on a daily basis...
A prayer you may pray to be filled with Holy Spirit:
"Heavenly Father, I come to you as your child in the Name of Jesus.
Thank You for Your promise to give Holy Spirit to all of Your children who ask.
Thank you for the Gift of Salvation: [I now (re) invite Your Son Jesus into my heart.] 
I now apologize for any offense/sin that comes to mind & receive Your forgiveness).
Thank You for delivering me from all the power of the Evil One. Satan & every evil spirit;
I renounce you & all your evil works in the Name of Jesus. I rebuke you in Jesus’ Name.
Father God, Loose me in spirit, soul & body now (of all evil) in the Name of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, fill me now, with Holy Spirit.
I receive Holy Spirit, now, by faith, in the Name of Jesus
Sometime ago, I said to my wife: “I have a dream of every born-again, Spirit-filled Christian setting aside several hours a day to pray in the Holy Spirit, as well as continuing to pray in the Spirit, undertone, throughout the day.  What do you think would happen if every believer were praying in tongues 5 or more hours a day?”
She thought for a moment and then replied: “I believe the Kingdom of God would soon come upon the Earth.”

Chapter 4 Your Supernatural Supply - section The Vision of Stripes -
"We prayed, we spoke the Word of God, & we stood our ground...
As I prayed in tongues, I just put my focus on the Holy Spirit & His power...trying to turn my thought away from...fear... Dozing in & out of sleep & then I saw Jesus...
I cannot tell you if I actually saw Him with my physical eyes or if I had a dream...
2 angels reached up to the gold clips on each shoulder...
The tunic He wore dripped until it was now only around His waist...His entire back was bare...covered with scars...
He was showing me that His stripes paid for the diseases written on those (medical) reports
His back was pointed at them, according to Isaiah 53:4:
'But He was counted for (to remove) our transgressions. He was bruised for (to remove) our iniquities:
the chastisement of (His hurt provided) our peace was upon Him.  With His stripes we are
(already now) healed.'  
Jesus wanted me to know that He received those scars, so my dad could be healed...
It was NOT in how hard all of us tried to make Dad's healing happen.
We just had to trust the anointing & that it was in fact (already) working...
Today he has one of the ill effects doctors said he would have, if he even lived at all...
(Because of) the vision of the stripes...
I was finally certain that the job was done, NOT based on the medical reports, but based on the fact that God reminded me in that vision the His power was very much in operation...
I finally came to the end of myself & trusted God power...was working regardless of what it (physical evidence & medical reports) looked like... Instead of trying to make the power (of God) work, I finally trusted that it was (already) working (in the life of a born-again, Holy Spirit baptized person). 

(Waiting for His heirs to recognize & appropriate it.) 
(The wafer in communion stands for Jesus' body which took our physical & mental problems away, as we appropriate that mystery during mass.)

Section - Tongues: the Supply of the River -
"Holy Spirit told me to do something different during my preparation 'preach my meeting in tongues'...
I spent 2 hours 'ministering' to the crowd in other tongues during my private time in the seclusion of my own bedroom... As I 'preached' in tongues, I disciplined my mind to think only on the meeting...
Praying in tongues is like the ground space that is carved out before buildings are built. 
It is the foundation created before the results...the doorway to the supernatural power of God...a 'digging' tool to forge ground in front of me...
Praying in the (Holy) Spirit (via tongues) is the primary way to cause the river of power to flow from your spirit. 
That is why it was the 1st manifestation of the Holy Spirit that flowed out of the people in Acts chapter 2."
Chapter 5 Supernatural Equipment Is in Your House - A "reason the devil hates praying in tongues" is because it represents the restoration of a unified language that supersedes natural limits

"Genesis 7:11 'On that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, & the windows of heaven were opened.'  Just as God released His power when the floodwaters of Noah's day were loosed, you can break open the deep things of God in your spirit by praying in the Spirit...
This is how we stir up the gifts of God...(2 Timothy 1:6) (Also,) we stir our spirit to receive what God is giving to us by mouth to mouth transmission (prophecy/tongues/interpretation of tongues)...
You don't have to figure it out in your head; you just allow the anointing to come from the heart...
Simply ask...Holy Spirit what is on His heart... Ask Him what is important to Him...
(Daily) set...time aside to fellowship with the Holy Spirit... He LOVES it when you do."
Kunneman, Hank - Barrier Breakers - Ignite Your Faith.  Stir Your Spirit.  Destroy the Works of the Devil Supporting Your Life - - - There are different power levels in God's kingdom. 
Level #1 is receiving forgiveness for our sins & then accepting Jesus as our Messiah/savior. 
Level #2 is receiving Jesus' Holy Spirit baptism. 
Level #3 is praying regularly in tongues; this helps to move men, angels, & demons.

MacNutt, Francis - Deliverance from Evil Spirits - -
Chapter 23 Baptism in the Holy Spirit shares, "When a group prayed for me as if I were to receive the Spirit (baptism) for the 1st time, nothing much happened.  But the next afternoon, when a few friends prayed for a release in me of the gifts of the Spirit (which I had already received in (infant water) baptism, confirmation & ordination), I was overwhelmed with joy & a wave of laughter swept over me...
1 of the purposes of this immersion in the (Holy) Spirit is empowered ministry, as Jesus promised His disciples after His resurrection." (Remember, Jesus' disciples did have a healing/deliverance ministry before Jesus died.  However, each lacked courage/authority/boldness/character/confidence needed of leadership, until after the Holy Spirit baptism, which came only after Christ was resurrected.) "Even  Jesus in His human nature needed to be empowered  by the (Holy) Spirit before He began His public ministry, preaching, healing & casting out evil spirits...Look at the example of Jesus, Who walked with God for 30 years, then needed a new dimension of union with the Spirit to empower Him for ministry.  I need that empowering, too...
Padre Salvador Carillo...told them (priests in Mexico City) they should not get trapped into trying to figure out too much theoretically. 
The main thing they should ask themselves was whether what happened to the apostles at Pentecost had happened to them. 
Where they eager to preach the Gospel?  Where they healing the sick & casting out evil spirits?...
"Tradition says they (the 12 disciples) were ordained at the Last Supper, almost 2 months before Pentecost. 
Yet they were not ready for ministry until the Spirit descended on them at Pentecost."

Pierce, Chuck D - Time to Defeat the Devil - - Chapter 20 Nourishing Your Spirit -
"Praying in tongues edifies your spirit (as well as your soul & body)...
The more active the Holy Spirit is in our lives, the stronger our spirit becomes....
The quenching of the Holy Spirit can even affect an entire territory." Exercise your spirit man. 
"Your (human) spirit is the part of your being that 1st knows (& hears) God...
Your soul needs to hear what your (human) spirit has to say (to relay from God)." 
Likewise your soul/mind needs have your mouth speak aloud God's words to your body. 
(Andrew Wommack & others contend that the human spirit is perfected at salvation or at least Holy Spirit baptism. 
Thus it would be God speaking to our born-again human spirit, which communicates to our soul, the latter which needs to be exercised.)

Prince, Derek - Rules of Engagement - - Fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit are different. 
"A gift comes through a single brief impartation, but fruit comes through a slow process of development. 
Receiving a spiritual gift does not, in itself, change a person's character...When we pass  from time to eternity, we will leave our gifts behind, but our character will be with us forever." "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, & done many wonders in Your name?' 
Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness
!'" Matthew 22-23

Chapter 6 Building a Capacity for God - "Even on a daily basis, it takes around 20 minutes of praying in the Spirit before I begin to consistently receive breakthrough from God.  For those initial 20 minutes, I am usually battling my wandering thoughts & constantly bringing my mind back to the focal points found in Scripture...
Praying in the Spirit not only creates space (a nest/home) within us for the life of God, but it builds & strengthens the connection between our spirits & God...
We are building something to contain the atmosphere & activity of the supernatural realm.
Just like Jacob, we can call this edifice, this ladder connecting us to our heavenly home, the house (habitation) of God."
Chapter 7 Learning How to Fight - Corey contends that demons DO understand our prayers while speaking in tongues TO God.  Yes, demons do lie.  Nonetheless his is a plausible argument. 
During a deliverance, progress was made via praying in tongues. 
When commanded in the name of Jesus to share what was being prayed, the result was:
"They (the students) are declaring the victory of Jesus" & "They are prophesying our coming demise...
The reality of spiritual warfare...propelled me into the practice of praying in tongues for extended periods of time...
Sometimes this only took 20 minutes and sometimes it took 2 hours...
I learned to discern the presence of breakthrough...
The greatest war that we are in right now is against the spirit of (naivety, laziness and) complacency" (in addition to spiritual flabbiness.  An uncharged dead battery is of NO avail during an emergency...
The Holy Spirit is our lithium battery.  We are NEVER to go it alone.  NEVER. 
1 ministry resource for spiritual training is ). 
"God has given us...offensive weapons - (singing To the Lord, feasting on & speaking) the Word of God and praying in the Spirit...People who have NOT built up their (human) spirit, may speak the same words & pray the same prayers (as do those who terrify demons), but the proclamations fall to the ground with NO life or power in them.  What was meant to be a sword is more like a butter knife...
Begin...the daily discipline of praying (& singing) for extended, undistracted periods of time in tongues."
Chapter 8 The Key to Transformation - "Praying in tongues is sowing to the Spirit...planting the things of the Spirit in the garden of our hearts; if we keep sowing those seeds, we will eventually reap a harvest...
There are sowing seasons & reaping seasons in the spirit, just as there are in the natural."
Chapter 9 Receiving and Sustaining Life in the Spirit - "Everything in the Kingdom of God is accessed by faith, & so it is with receiving the personal gift of tongues...Remember that we are NOT trying to produce a specific sound. 
We must NOT judge and evaluate our prayer languages or compare them to the languages of those around us."
( Disallow your mind to reject; it is your spirit that communicates with papa God, Who is Spirit.) 
"Stop striving & start receiving" in Jesus' name.  FOCUS on Him and NOT on His manifestations. 
We desire to be mutually intoxicated with each other; that is the goal. 
Begin with a minimum of "setting aside 20-30 minutes every day to intentionally pray in the Spirit."
Chapter 10 There Is More -
"Tongues is a gateway gift...As believers, we are invited (daily) to receive more & more of the Holy Spirit. 
We are being baptized deeper into a PERSON, immersed in His life, His love & His power." 
(Lord forgive us for settling for the obvious, when we can have it ALL, especially all our inheritance in Messiah & a more magnificent relationship with You Father God.  Spur us on that we might NOT have many regrets at the end of our life, with could have & should have, in Jesus' name.  Amen.)

Roberson, Dave - The Walk of the Spirit - The Walk of Power - The Vital Role of Praying in Tongues - - Portrait Version -
Book shares how Dave & Donner, his sister, learned to move mountains by praying up to 8 hours in tongues.
The Lord shared with Dave that there is a "spiritual law" - praying in tongues edifies 1 personally & spiritually; praying in tongues supernaturally builds faith or spiritual backbone/muscle.  Dave contends that the dividing line between Christians with spiritual power & Christians without power is (the absence or presence of) speaking/praying in tongues, the 8th office of the Holy Spirit, which is the foundation/door/switch for all spiritual power/ gifts/fruit/muscle of the Holy Spirit.
For instance, a pastor may be intellectually qualified but spiritually disqualified, if he does not receive/refuses the gift of tongues.  Praying often in tongues allows our private tutor, Holy Spirit, to minister to our human spirit, to remove our old nature, to remove the enemy's nature, & to impart His nature into us.  (Actually what a wonderful thing to do in a mental hospital.  Any patient can cry or sing aloud in holy tongues & accomplish more healing in 1 week than the doctors can accomplish in 1 year.)

Dave contends there are tongues for personal use & for public use.  The following is how Dave translates
1st Corinthians 12:30 - Have all the gifts of healing?  (In public places) do all speak with tongues (that need to be interpreted)?  (In public places) do all interpret (the tongues spoken in public)?
1st Corinthians 14:18 - "I (Paul) thank my God, (that) I speak (pray privately) with tongues (that supernatural language of edification that allows/imparts/downloads the Holy Spirit's revelation knowledge) more than you all."
Chapter 7 Praying Out the Mysteries of God's Plan notes that the second we are born again into God's kingdom (when we ask God to forgive our sins & ask God's Son Jesus to be our Lord), a book/seed/blueprint of God's perfect will/plans for our life is deposited inside our spirit. 
Each time we pray in tongues, we allow the Holy Spirit to water/nurture/download into that seed. 
Chapter 8 The Channel Through Which the Holy Spirit Speaks reminds us of Jesus' Words.
(Matthew 11:7-14 NKV -
Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, "What (who) did you go out into the wilderness to see?...
A Prophet?  Yes, I say to you, & more than a prophet,
for this is he of whom it is written,
'Behold, I send My messenger before Your Face, who will prepare Your way before You.' 

Assuredly, I say to you, among those who are born of women there has not risen a greater (person) than John the Baptist; notwithstanding, He Who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 
12From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence.
   The violent take it by force. 
13All the prophets until now prophesied until John. 
14If you are willing to receive it, He (John) is Elijah who is to come. 
Matthew 11:18-19 NKV -18John came neither eating nor  drinking; they say, 'He (like Jesus) has a demon.' 
19The Son of Man (Jesus) came eating & drinking.
They say, 'Look, a glutton, wine-biber & a friend of tax collectors & sinners!'
[Consider - John (the Baptist), Jesus' 1st cousin may have had a deposit of God's Holy Spirit while in in womb. 
Luke 1:41,44 NKJV  When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that babe (inside her) leapt in her womb;
Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit...
As soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leapt in my womb for joy.)
John's wilderness life probably allowed the Holy Spirit to minister to his human spirit/soul/body. 
Dave reminds us that the more we pray in tongues & allow the Spirit to do His work in us, the more God will be able to use us.  John's (& Christ's) life is an example to us of how to doggedly/tenaciously clamp onto the goal (our reason for existence) for which God Himself designed in our lives.]

Roberts, Oral - When You See the Invisible, You Can Do the Impossible - -
The book's introduction states strongly that 1 reason the elderly author is vibrant/young in spirit is due to praying in & interpretation of tongues.
Chapter 20 Why I Make No Decision or Attempt Anything for God without 1st Praying in the Spirit & Planting a Seed of Faith shares that both Oral & Evelyn prayed in tongues in crisis or great joy, but not daily. 
Suddenly (when Oral was in desperation, on his knees, in tears) the Holy Spirit flowed up in tongues. 
Next the English translation poured forth.  Each only lasted approximately 1 minute. 
Oral asked the Lord to let this happen again & again.  God granted this both for him & later for his wife. 
1st Corinthians 14:13-15 TNAB 
13One who speaks in a tongue should pray to be able to interpret. 
14If I pray in a tongue, my spirit is at prayer, but my mind is  unproductive.  
15So what is to be done?  I will pray with the spirit, but I will also pray with the mind. 
I will sing praise with the spirit, but I will also sing praise with the mind.

[Likewise, Merlin Carothers in Prison to Praise www.foundationof shares that the Lord instructed him first to pray softly in unknown tongues & then to speak out the translation.
1 key to operating in God's will & His power is to NOT think/argue/debate/discuss but to immediately obey God. 
If one considers a thought/command/interpretation/translation/word of knowledge to be a contradiction to scripture, then 1 should test the spirits.]

Chapter 5 Strengthening Yourself - Per
Shelley Hundley -
"In Bolivia...a small house church...members were encouraged to pray in tongues all the time... A tractor driver...worked on a soybean plantation & he spent most of his days praying in tongues as he drove his tractor. 
1 day his co-worker failed to show up for his shift... The man had hung himself the night before...
He cut the man down, laid him on the ground, & began to pray in tongues...
'Jesus, I praise You because You are life,' he began to declare...& continued praying in the Spirit.  Suddenly the corpse sat up...He (the co-worker) received the Gospel; & the baptism of the Holy Spirit that same night'...
Because he (continually) strengthened his spirit through praying in tongues, in the hour of crisis he was able to access the power of God & call forth a miracle...
We are living on a 'machine' - (that is) surviving off the 2nd hand spiritual experiences of our leaders. 
We are missing out... The Holy Spirit is calling the Body of Christ individually & corporately to stand as priests...
The Lord spoke to me 1 day, 'I am about to take the Church off of her feeding tube
I am going to teach her how to eat

Sherrill, John - They Speak with Other Tongues - Fleming H Revel publisher - Chapter 9 Detective Story -
"I ran across a story which I could fit in no way into my forgotten-exposure hypothesis. 
1 day a young man from New Jersey, Clifford Tonnensen, had attended a Pentecostal camp meeting in Michigan.  In the course of the meeting Clifford received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues. 
A lady standing nearby grew extremely excited.  Clifford was speaking German, she said. 
A fluent, beautiful High German. was the fact that she knew he could NOT be speaking the language by any natural meals. 
He could NOT even speak his own language, English.  Clifford was a deaf-mute who had NOT heard a sound since a disease destroyed his hearing at the age of 2 months... The most amazing story...took the year 1922...Reverend H.B. Garlock & his wife of Toms River, New Jersey go to Africa as missionaries to the Pahns, as small tribe in the interior of Liberia...The Pahns were cannibals. 
(Later as a captive of the Pahns) Garlock prayed, 'Lord, show me what to do.  Send Your Spirit to help me.'  Suddenly Garlock began to shake violently...With the trembling came a sense of the nearness of the Holy Spirit. 
Words of Jesus came to him, 'Take no thought what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate; but whatsoever shall be given to you in that hour, that speak ye; for it is not ye that speak but the Holy Ghost.' 
Garlock felt a strange boldness...From his lips came a flow of words which he did not understand. 
Garlock saw the natives lean forward, enthralled. 
He saw that the words, whatever they were, had a stirring effect on those who listened. 
He knew beyond a doubt that he was speaking to the Pahns in their own language. 
For 20 minutes Garlock talked to the Pahns...
Then, straightening, the witch doctor gave an order & a white rooster was brought forward. 
With a snap, the witch doctor wrung the rooster's neck. 
He sprinkled some of the blood on the foreheads of Garlock & the (other) prisoner. 
Later Garlock interpreted this as meaning that the rooster had taken his place; blood had to be shed, but some thing he had said in the Spirit had convinced these people that he & the prisoner should go free...
Garlock is certain that the beginnings of the conversion (of the Pahns) came with the seed sown while he...gave a speech, not 1 word of which did he understand."

Stone, Perry - BAPTISM for TONGUES - 2/4/2019 (edited) -
SID: You have revelation that you learned from rabbis about a supernatural language, tongues.
I've always been told, tongues didn't start 'til after –

: Pentecost.  In the 1990s.
Rabbi Yehuda Getz
was one of the head rabbis in Jerusalem at the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. 
We would go in there at 10-11 PM because he would pray at night from like 11-3 AM his prayer time.

: He revealed to me that the Ark of the Covenant was hid in a certain location under the temple mount.
He asked me what I believed. I said, "I believe in the covenant, so I believe in the redemption."
I said, "I believe in casting out devils."
He looked at me & said, "There's a man at the Western Wall who prays, who thinks he's Elijah, but he's not.
Could you go cast the devil out of him for me?" It was hilarious. That kind of bonded us at that point.

: I said, "I also believe in speaking with other tongues, which is the prayer language of the Holy Spirit."
He looked at me without blinking. He said, "Oh, you mean the language of God." I went, "Wait a minute, what do you know about the language of God?" I'm thinking he's thinking the Hebrew language or something like that.
He said, "Well, we have a Jewish tradition…I believe that on the Day of Atonement when the (Old Testament) high priest would go into the Holy of Holies, God gave him a tongue to communicate in, a language that he was not familiar with, that only he and God could talk in & no one could hear it."  I said, "Well, why would that be?"
He said, "So Satan 7 the (evil) spirits could not interfere with what he was saying."

: You thought that was amazing, that they spoke in tongues?
Wait…I just want to mention something about Perry's father's Uncle Rufus...How educated was he?

: 3rd grade only.
: (Only a) 3rd grade education.
(Nonetheless) Uncle Rufus preached the gospel 7 could speak in any language of anyone he spoke to.
Perry (Stone) prophesied…earlier…that these gifts…imparted to him, he is going to start imparting them to you (audience).

: Tell me about the breath of the holies from this ancient rabbi's teachings.
: There was a tradition that in the tabernacle of Moses…when the glory of the Lord came down,
1st,  by…the sound of a man breathing…like a wind blowing.
The 2nd way you would know is by the motion of the curtains covering the entrance to the holy of holies inner court chamber.  The curtains would start moving like a man's lungs breathing.  They would expand in and out.
This (motion) became known as the breath of the holies. Now what is interesting is in Hebrew, the word breath, wind & spirit is the same word. You have to read the context of the verse to see what it's speaking about.
It's Ruach
HaKadosh (in Hebrew) & means the Holy Spirit...
In the tabernacle of Moses it became known as breath of the holy place, breath of the holies, holy breath, Holy Spirit.  That breathing sound was a manifestation of the [Hebrew language], which is the Holy Spirit, or the spirit that's holy, the Spirit of God. The interesting thing about that is if you come to the New Testament in Acts, Chapter 2, verses 1-4 on the day of Pentecost, there is a sound from heaven like a mighty rushing wind. 
The Bible says it filled the house where they were seated.

: Just before your dad was promoted to heaven, he gave you some advice.
: He was 78 years of age at the time & said, "I had a dream." He said, "In this dream, I'm in a church service & seeing the enemy attack people." He talked about the sexual sins, temptation, pressures, depression.
He said all this was coming against God's people.  Then he said, "The Lord told me this...
I'm going to tell you this because I'm not going to live long enough to tell people this. 
I can't go out & preach now"...  

I said, "Okay, what is it?" He says, "Now, when the Spirit of God quickens this to you, you tell people that the solution to the attacks that are coming." This is his exact words, "They must learn to pray excessively in the Spirit."  I said, "Dad, what do you mean by excessively?" He says, "Not your normal worshiping in church, not your normal praying in the Spirit." He said, "You're going to have to go into a prayer chamber & pray in the Spirit, sometimes for 30 minutes to an hour to break stuff that's on you."
He said, "If you don't pray." He looked at me & said, "If you & this generation does not learn
how to pray in the Spirit, you're going to come under attacks that you're going to have a hard time coming out from under"...
It's mandatory…About praying excessively, he says, "Now, do you remember your Uncle Rufus?"
Now let me explain who Uncle Rufus was in case we get into a story about him. Rufus Dunford was my dad's uncle who had a gift that when he was saved & filled with the Holy Spirit.  He could speak in diverse tongues of any language in the world, go up to any foreigner (from anywhere in the world mining) in the coal fields of West Virginia & speak to them in tongues, because a lot of those people came from other countries & couldn't speak English well.  Nobody could witness to them, so he'd preach & witness to them.  They just thought he knew the language.  They even thought he was a Catholic priest when he'd speak Latin. They'd call him Father Dunford.
SID: Perry, could you very quickly pray for everyone to be filled with the Holy Spirit & speak in tongues?

: Alright. 1st thing we want to do, you have to repent. So let's pray a prayer of repentance.
Everybody, if you want to agree, pray, & say this with me, Father in heaven. In the name of Jesus.
I'm coming to you. Asking You (to) Forgive me.  Of all my sin. Hidden, secret, public sins.
Anything that's displeasing to You, God. Forgive, cleanse me.
By the blood of Jesus. Right now. Help me, Lord. To walk in victory. To walk in faith. To follow you.
To have deliverance in my life & heart. Today. I receive (reaffirm) Jesus as Lord & savior. Praise God. Amen...
#1, the same faith that you're saved with is the same faith you receive the Holy Spirit with.
You don't have to have a greater faith, more faith, pray more faith in.
If you can believe what I'm saying, you have faith.
#2, When we ask the Holy Spirit to come in, we have to ask him to come in AND baptize & fill us.
He will do what we ask Him if we believe.
#3, The bible says that when they were filled, they spoke with tongues as the Spirit gave utterance.
I like to say it this way:  They spoke as the Spirit gave them inspired words. When you're praying for the Holy Spirit & you've asked Him to come in, you will, at some moment, hear the Holy Spirit speaking to you (your mind). 
It's your spirit praying (downloading God’s conversation).
Your spirit's receiving the power (& words/thoughts/sounds/dialogue) of God...

When you hear those words coming into your spirit, and you're hearing it, speak it with your mouth & you'll feel the power of God be released. Okay? So right now, say this with me. Everybody, let's pray this together.
Say heavenly Father. According to Your word. According to Your promise. I receive. The gift of the Holy Ghost. Right now. Spirit of God. Fill me.  Baptize me.
In God's power, with the Holy Spirit. Right now. I receive. Holy Spirit. Right now. In Jesus name...

Now lift your hands & start worshiping. Praise God. [foreign language/tongues] Hallelujah. Hallelujah

(This gift of Holy Spirit is called the "gift of tongues" when we speak the words He gives to us in our minds. 
They can be in our native tongue or in another tongue we do not understand.) 
The pastor went on to explain to Delores that she was 'baptized in the Holy Spirit" & "received some gifts" (tongues, interpretation of tongues, & gift of knowledge) at the same time that she received her healing.

I felt it was the work of God but did not know how to explain it, or what to say...
The Spirit of God brought before me the vision I had before I started out in the work of the Lord, & said, 'Don't you remember when you were carried away & saw the field of wheat & the sheaves falling?  The large field of wheat was the multitudes of people you are to preach the Gospel to.  The falling sheaves is what you see here tonight, the slaying power of God.  This is My power.  I told you I would be with you & fight your battles; it is not the wisdom of men, but the power & wisdom of God that is needed to bring sinners from darkness to light.'"

[Behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him (Peter), & a light shined in the prison...& he ( Peter was) not (sure/aware) that it was true (in the body/reality or spiritual) which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. (Acts 12:7, 9) standing by his bed.
His (Brother Riese's) room was in darkness, but a light filled the room, as the angels were bright & shining as the sun.
They had long golden hair & beautiful wings, & each carried a golden palm; even their hands & feet, fingers & toenails were all shining with the same brightness & their feet never touched the floor, but they stood on a level with his bed. 
1 of the angels spoke to him in such a tender voice of sweetness & said in English the same message that Brother Wiley had given in Turkish, 'Go back & warn God’s people to watch & pray, for the time is at hand of the coming of the Lord.
Tell them to warn the American people that God is preaching to Europe at the cannon’s mouth, because He spread His hands all day long to a rebellious people, speaking to them by the Spirit. Each nation claims its God to be the greatest, yet in reality they are mocking God. Tell the American people they are the last nation to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, & to repent while the windows of heaven are open to pour out the Spirit on all flesh. Tell them that the knowledge they profess came from the Nazarene, the Son of God, for their country before the Gospel came was evil & full of darkness, & even now men reject the Wisdom of God, making them-selves greater than God. A man will soon conquer Europe, & then God will ‘preach to this nation at the mouth of the cannon, & those who are asleep
(deceived) will remain asleep, & those who have their eyes on man will remain with man, & this country will also be conquered by the man of Europe (antichrist ?),
then Jesus will catch away his Bride.  God will take away His Spirit from the earth. 
Those who are not filled
(baptized) with the Spirit, whose lamps are not trimmed & burning, will fall on that day.  The time is at hand.' The angels then disappeared."  [NOTICE.  God's Holy Spirit came to earth at Pentecost* & may leave (at least temporarily) with His saints at the end of His visitation (time of mercy).**

Chapter 4 Stillness & Soaking - To help us pray we can enlist our imagination for holy encounters, eg: "to picture the cloud of God's presence wrapping around" us.  To help reject distraction we can write down "to do" things rather than meditate or act on them now. "Then say to your mind, 'You can't tell me things to do anymore.  All my to-do-list is written down, so be quiet.'  (Obviously, if your sins come to mind, confess them & get rid of them.  Then you can't blame that as a distraction anymore)...If your mind wanders aimlessly, speak in tongues...
I would speak in tongues for hours until my mind completely gave up & I didn't even know what I was doing anymore... My mind learned who was boss. 
Speaking in tongues energizes your (human) spirit.  It is like lifting weights for the body.  Sing, praise & worship God.  Focus on Jesus.  Meditate on the Word until your mind is still.  At 1st...10-20 minutes a day... establish new enter God's presence."

Zadai, Kevin L - Praying from the Heavenly Realms
Chapter 21 shares numerous prayer secrets including 1 of the MOST significant tools to one's spiritual wherewithal: praying/singing in tongues, the more the better.
Zadai, Kevin L @ -
Edited Excerpt - "When you pray in the Spirit (tongues), your inner man (human spirit) will be ignited & built up (see Jude 20). This will cause you to discern that part of you. As you meditate on the Word of God, that process will cause a division (of the unhealthy alliance) between your soul & spirit.
[Our born-again spirit is suppose to heal/reign/rule over our soul & then our (healed) soul over our body.] 
You will be able to discern more accurately the will of God.
I found that the author of Hebrews can be a great help in hearing God’s voice... He says: 'The word of God is alive, powerful, sharper than the sharpest 2-edged sword, cutting between soul & spirit, between joint & marrow.
It exposes our innermost thoughts & desires' (Hebrews 4:12 NLT). When I am thinking about entering into a relationship with someone, Holy Spirit will help me understand God’s will for the situation.
For instance, when I was dating, I felt that I was supposed to wait for the right person. I was continually discerning in my heart as a relation-ship progressed as to whether the person was the one I was to marry. Finally, I was led by the Spirit of God to my wife, & we were married in a YOU CAN HEAR GOD’S VOICE short amount of time. 
I was glad I waited.  We have been married now for over 27 years at the time of this book being published.
Make sure to let your spiritual life develop by the reading (out loud) of the Word of God AND praying in the Spirit.  This will make such a difference when you need to hear the voice of God in a particular situation."

"Practicing Jews read through the Torah, the 1st 5 books of the Bible, in a year beginning with Rosh HaShannah. Every Sabbath they read the appointed Torah portion called the parasha. Coupled with the Torah reading they read an appointed Scripture from the Prophets called the haftara. These are appointed from ancient times.
Jonathan Cahn refers to the haftara readings often in his book The Oracle.
He purports, & many agree, that they are often prophetic.
  Could it be possible that some of these appointed words were appointed not only to be spoken on those days but of & to those days…to speak of events that would take place in modern times?
(The Oracle, Jonathan Cahn, page 43)... The Lord made me to know He was going to do 3 supernatural things with the tongues that would be prayed du ring the call. He would use their tongues
To pray the mysteries of God (1 Cor. 14:2).To give His body, His army, a rest & refreshing (Is. 28:11). 
To speak to us (Is. 28:11).  About 10 weeks or so ago the Lord told Max, our former Muslim friend, to start listening to what is prayed when I & others pray in tongues.
Since that time he has been hearing words in his mother tongue, Arabic.
(See Acts 2) Sunday, as we prayed, Max heard as I spoke in tongues:
Whom shall I fear + With strength my soul.
+ With men this is impossible. (2 times) + The King is moving. (2 times) + Through Christ + Love & Sound Mind
+ Receive Power + According +My Strength + Words of My Mouth + Jump (as in jump up & down) (5 times)
+ Satan defeated (4 times) + We will not have strife. (4x) + Let Him + Let Us MOVE + More, More, More of you.."

Tongues & Prayer - Billye Brim Ministries 5/13/2021 @ Billye Brim, Author at Billye Brim Ministries (edited)
For some months during our corporate prayer calls [8am Wednesdays, Noon CT Wednesday Live-Streamed Prayer & 3pm Sunday prayer call] an unusual operation of the Gifts of the Spirit has been happening.
My former Muslim friend, Max, suddenly began hearing in his mother tongue, Arabic, what I spoke in tongues as we prayed. The Lord said to him, “Listen to what she speaks.”
This is what occurred in Acts 2:6, 7, 11.
Brother Hagin pointed out to me years ago that it doesn’t say they 'spoke' the various languages from all over the known world, it says they 'heard them speak in their own tongue.' I don’t believe I am speaking in Arabic.
However Max says he hears my voice as if Arabic were my mother tongue.
The Lord instructed us to pray for 15 minutes [& there are always 1,000 people on the 8 am Wednesday call.
It currently caps off at that number. Many on the other corporate prayer times]. All other pray-ers are muted & Max listens only to me. The Lord has called this 'the interpretation of the prayers.'
Max writes down what he hears
.  It comes rapidly. He said it is impossible for him to do that in the natural. He cannot hear someone speak Arabic & rapidly translate it to English.
One can hear the surprise in his voice as he reads back to us what came."

You have missed in many areas because you have failed to surrender your voice to My Spirit, but that can all change now...Starting with the 1st syllable of the 1st word in the Spirit, My creative, explosive power is released into the atmosphere & change takes place. 
The more you discipline yourself to pray (in tongues) in the Spirit, the more change you will begin to see...

Ellis, Keith + Zadai, Kevin - (edited) Kevin: Jesus himself...
23 years ago, in person told me that the #1 supernatural thing that you could do was to yield to & let the Spirit begin to speak out God's mysteries. 
He says, "Once that happens, guess what: The transaction goes from the heavenly realm into the physical realm."  I have had people who spoke the language that I speak in tongues tell me what I was saying. 
For a whole week this individual translated, not interpreted, translated from his native tongue everything that I was saying.  It was naming people that I would meet within 24 hours; I did.
It was every transaction that was going to happen the next week.  He didn't even know. He was just telling me. 
He would name names.  I would go, know & then come in contact with that person.
He would tell me things. He said, "The Spirit is saying, "'re going into the supernatural."
He told me what name of the school I was going to. He didn't know that. I was speaking his native language. 
So what is it that the Spirit is wanting to say through you that's going to take it from the spirit realm & bring it here?  I'm telling you, once you utter it, it is a transaction & the devil can't do anything about it

Mikel French - How Praying in Tongues Can Unlock the Breakthrough You Seek

But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God while you are waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, which leads to eternal life (Jude 20-21)...'Waiting anxiously' means waiting with expectation, hardly being able to contain your eagerness. Praying in the Spirit releases a supernatural atmosphere & enables you to walk continuously in the love of God.  Another interesting fact about this passage is that it says you are supposed to build yourself up.
You cannot wait for others to do so, & for God to make it happen."

Taking time to pray in other tongues, will get you tuned up; will edify you & get your tongue hooked up to your spirit, so that then He who dwells in your spirit can give you utterance. 
Then He takes over & you speak out what He says, not  what you think.  Speak out what He wants."

Hamon, Bill - 5/2017 @ - The Holy Spirit's gift of speaking in tongues is His best & greatest gift to the individual believer: section What can 30 minutes of spirit language praying do:
"1 spirit-filled psychiatrist said that if he could get his patients to pray in the spirit (tongues) for at least 30 minutes every day for 30 days, then they would not need to see him anymore.  Why? 
Because the (Holy) spirit language prays from the subconscious area of man.  The Holy Spirit sheds God's light on those hidden areas of the subconscious & then the spirit language roots them up & washes them out of the soul.  Praying in tongues has even been found to give a boost to our immune system."

He says, "I tried the horn.” I tried the lights, no lights.  Your battery is probably dead." I say, “My battery is dead?
Who killed it?”  He said, "I don’t know, but it's dead.  We'll jump our cable.”  I said, "What is that?”
So he took his cables snapped them on the little cup of postal. He had little small Buick car, his 6 volt Montrevo.
He clumped it on.  He turned his motor on, rift it up & said, “Drive.” We’ve discovered something.
His 6 Volt couldn’t charge my 12Volt.  [I said, “I’ve got a revelation:”  So some 6 volt people pray for some 12 volt people: That’s a 6 volt trying to push  trying to charge a 12 volt Christian]...
So I said, "What can we do?" He said, "We’re going to take it over this shop where they can give you charge.”
So, we go over there.  He brings up this little machine, puts the clamps on those 2 little posts: green here; red here.  I said, "What's the red for?" He said, "Well if it gons over in red it proves you got a dead cell.
I could charge it all day long & it wouldn’t take a charge.”  [I got another revelation.
That's why, when you pray for some people, pray they got a deal cell. Dead cell is unbelief. 
See, you can pray all day long, they’re not going to receive any charge. Amen.] 
So I said, “What are you going to do?”  He said, “Well I’ve got to 1st make sure it's full of water.” 
So I took his little caps off.  He poured water in all of them.
I said, "How do I know he's taking that charge?"  He said, "Watch the water."  So, I watched the water. 
He said, “By the way, do you want a long charge or a 30-minute charge? 
If your generator is working, it will charge your battery on the way back to Texas.”
I said, "I'm a Pentecost so give me a quickie, a real fast.” Hallelujah. 
So, he put it on, turned up the juice (electrical current).  I'm waiting.
I said, "How do I know it's taking the charge?” He said, "Watch the water.” 
But as soon as I started watching that little water started going.  I said, "It’s going." 
He said, "He's taking a charge.”   [I got another revelation.
When you lay hands on them, pray for them; then take/give the charge.
They go; they start talking (in tongues.  It's) done, Amen. They took the charge. 
But you've got to full of full of Holy Spirit to take (receive/activate) the charge (gift of praying in tongues). Hallelujah.]  So, we put that (wet car) battery back on my old Buick.
I turned the key on. Tried the horn, tried the lights.  It's all right. If you ever go to church... 
I tell you sometimes when you start your service you might as well stop, have everybody still, pray (in tongues) until they get charged up because they are so beaten down...You see you can charge yourself.
You’ve got your own battery charger. All you've got to do is clamp on.
When I start talking I visualize: plug it in, clap it on, turning turbine...
I tell you the spirit language is designed to activate every spirit. 
It will activate the of the spirit & character. 
1 Corinthians 14:2, "He that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks in mysteries.” 
Mysteries or secret purposes of God not yet revealed.  Amen. 
In other words, to produce in modern terminology, it downloads while you’re uploading...
TESTIMONY: He says, “What I do as a psychiatrist” I won't ask how many has been through a psychiatrist.
But anyway, just a couple here that I see is probably getting ready to go. But anyhow, the psychiatrist says, “I get you to talk...until finally you open up & reach your subconscious mind & release old hidden or buried traumas or words still (adversely) affecting you today.  When it comes to the forefront, then I’d bring (scriptural) truth to it.
(Biblical) truth sets you free.  That’s what Holy Spirit does.
(Via tongues/spiritual language) your (born again) spirit prays...out all your subconscious: fears, traumas, anxieties (allowing Holy Spirit to) release (from heaven) the love & praise that you (&/or others) could never give yourself (& into others what you on your own could never impart to them).
If I can get my patients to pray 30 minutes in tongues for 30 days, they wouldn’t need me anymore.” 
Wow, you’ve got your own psychiatrist (Holy Spirit)...
Jude 1:20 says, “Build yourself up in your most holy faith by praying in your spirit language.”
When he says pray it in your spirit, it means praying in your spirit language. Amen?
It says you keep yourself (marinated) in the love of God by praying in your spirit language.

Hermans, Olga - How Can You Recognize the Voice of the Lord? @ - 11/24/2010 -(edited) 
"The primary way God communicates is not with my brain but with my spirit.
That’s why I make sure there are times when I pray in tongues & do nothing with my mind on purpose...
Holy Spirit is supplying the language, all right, but it is our human spirit that is doing the praying. 
You see, we are a part of the Body of Christ. Jesus is the Head.
Wherever His Body is present in this earth, the Head has authority.
When Holy Spirit transfers that supernatural language to our human spirit
, He also transfers authority.
Now you as a member of the Body of Christ are praying a prayer that Holy Spirit gave you with authority to change things on this earth... I was in my prayer closet edifying myself in tongues. Suddenly it seemed like some kind of invisible dome settled over me, as if I was in the Holy of Holies. Everything got very quiet as I slid over into the realm of the Spirit. God was about to teach me some profound truths about distinguishing His voice...
In the Spirit I saw the physical anatomy of a man.
Then I saw what appeared to be a 'glow' on the inside of the man’s body.  I understood the glow to be the outline of the inner spirit man, which was encased by the outer man, wall to wall, hands to hands, eyes to eyes. 
In that moment of revelation, I learned something I hadn’t understood before about the spirit man.
If I had the ability to have my spirit man step out and stand next to my physical man, you would see that my inner man has hands, eyes, a nose, ears, & hair. He also has a brain that fits inside my natural brain.
In fact, my spirit man looks exactly like my physical man, minus age & defects...
But I had more to learn.
In this vision I saw the spirit man’s mind.
Then I saw Holy Spirit literally creating tongues within the spiritual mind, which was bathed in that heavenly glow.
The moment Holy Spirit created the tongues, they came outward to the outer man’s mind & then out of his mouth.
I realized I was seeing the part of the (human) spirit from which Holy Spirit speaks...The hidden man of the heart (the spirit man) has a brain just like your physical body does.  That spiritual brain fits in your natural brain.
God does not move out of your spirit man’s brain & go down to the belly button region to talk to you.
He communicates with your spiritual mind & that spiritual mind is in your head...
The spiritual mind, of course, lies beneath the natural mind. This explains why it appears that the voice of Holy Spirit is coming from 'way down somewhere' when it is actually coming from the deep recesses of our spiritual mind.  My outer man gives my spirit man the authority to operate in a natural world. 
Because I am 'wearing' my physical body, I can contact physical things. In the same way, my physical brain allows my spiritual brain to operate in a natural world & translate what I am receiving in the spirit into a natural operation, such as languages.  So our spiritual brain is the part of you with which Holy Spirit communicates
The more you pray in tongues, the more you are going to familiarize yourself with the part of you where He actually creates that supernatural language.
It is the same part of you where you will hear the inner witness or hear Him in your native language in such a way that you can hear God’s voice... Now, let me help you isolate this part of our spirit.
I suggest that you do what God instructed me to do on that particular day.
He had me pray out loud for a while in the Holy Spirit (tongues); then He impressed me to stop.
I stopped praying out loud, but the tongues did not stop because the Holy Spirit was continuing to create the words on the inside of my spiritual mind.
When I didn’t let the words come out of my mouth, they just floated up to my natural mind.
I could hear them. For a while, Holy Spirit kept creating words.  I kept on hearing them.
If you respond to Holy Spirit and say, 'I want to pray in tongues,' immediately He will supply the language.
If you don’t open your mouth, you will notice that you can hear those tongues being created somewhere on the inside of you. You are hearing God’s voice with the ear of your (human) spirit.
What is God saying (in) Tongues? Where is He saying it? In your (human)spirit. 
So let me suggest that you forcefully pray in tongues for a few minutes; then stop abruptly.
In doing this, you will create a river that will continue to flow up to your natural mind even after you stop speaking.
Listen to where this language is created in your spirit for a moment. Familiarize yourself with it, for that is the exact same part of you that you will need to monitor in order to distinguish the voice of Holy Spirit (& also recognize the different voice of the evil spirit).  The more you pray in tongues, the more familiar you will become with the source of Holy Spirit’s language & how He talks to you. So start learning to listen. Make it your highest priority to learn how to hear the voice of God. There is no better way to prepare yourself for the times to come.
Whatever the future might hold for the world, YOUR future will be bright as you grow in close fellowship with Him."

Hernandez, David - - - Edited Excerpt -
AVID: At salvation you receive the Holy Spirit, but at baptism you release Him.
You receive Him into the rest of your being. Jesus said, '
Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water.'
So the scripture talks about that river being deep within. That flood touches from the spirit. 
It goes from the inside out so that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, you can receive Him, even though, people ask, well I already have the Holy Spirit.  How do I receive him a 2nd time?   You received Him in your spirit the 1st time when you got saved, but He overflows the rest of your being at (Holy Spirit) baptism...
Baptism is
not you getting more of God, it’s Him getting more of you...

I like to say that the only distance that can exist between the believer & the Holy Spirit is their unawareness of his presence... Often people will say, oh we prayed & worshiped (& then His Glory appeared, but)...
We become aware of the Glory that is already there. When we walk in that awareness of the Glory of God 24/7, what begins to happen is we begin to see opportunities that would otherwise have been a mentality where God is far from us... A single moment of repentance can cover that entire distance & bring you all the way back home, because He’s the One who’s interested in connecting with us...
Father, I pray in Jesus’ name that Jesus the baptizer will pour out His Holy Spirit on that one who is (inviting &) receiving it now, for that one watching who’s saying I want that. 
Lord, I pray for an infilling with power right now in Jesus’ name. Amen...
Whether or not you felt something is not the issue. The issue was that God keeps his promises.

Hotchkin, Robert @ - Video –

ROBERT: Yeah, so I get saved like we talked about, outside a cabin in the woods of Montana, & then the next day in a cabin in the woods of Montana. Iit was just me, my Bible & the Holy Spirit was there.
I'm reading all about the baptism of the Holy Spirit & the gift of tongues & I want it.
So, I'm going after it every night in my prayers. I didn't know how to pray, I didn't grow up in any of this, but I saw it in the Word and believed it. So, I'm going after it.  I used to do this thing every night, Sid, where because I didn't know how to pray, I'd seen a painting of a little boy with his hands on his bed kneeling ...
So, every night as an almost 40-year-old man, I would kneel by my bed, put my hands like this & pray.
At the end of my prayer I'd say, "Okay, God. Now, I want that baptism of the Holy Spirit & the gift of tongues." 
ecause I didn't know anything, my understanding was I had to loosen my jaw enough that He could take over. So, He must have been laughing in heaven because every night I'd end my prayer & say, "Okay, I'm ready, God." ROBERT: I tried to get my jaw loose enough, if you're going to take over, God ... Nothing was happening & you can guess why. So,  night in God's incredible mercy & grace, I was actually at a bed & breakfast somewhere else, but I'm still doing this.  All of a sudden the Lord takes me into a vision because I'm doing this thing & it's not working, obviously. In the vision I'm in a classroom like st grade, like when I was a kid & you learned to read.
There was the banner on the wall of the alphabet.  When I was little, obviously it was big A, little A, big B, little B, but it was different. The st thing I saw was a big A, a little B, a little A. I'm thinking, "That's not right." But I hear this still small voice that I come to know as Holy Spirit speak to me & say, "Say it." So I'm thinking, "Okay." 
"I read down the banner. " I have no idea what that (Hebrew sound/word) is. The next thing I know, He says, "Say it again."  Now it turns into a scrolling digital image, like when I was investing in the '90s, (to) look at for stock reports, when the symbols would scroll by.  I'm thinking, "Are these companies you want me to invest in God?"
But again, He said, "Say it," & it's like, "[a foreign language]," again. "[like Hebrew/Jewish/Arabic]."
Then all of a sudden.  This shows how personal our God is & how he knows exactly how to reach everyone of us.
I didn't grow up going to church or reading the Bible or any of that. I grew up reading every DC & Marvel superhero comic book I could get my hands on.  I love superheroes & 1 of my favorite characters was somebody called the Human Torch in The Fantastic 4 & he would say, "Flame on," burst into flames & go off in his adventures. 
So, here I am praying in tongues, not even knowing it & all of a sudden the Holy Spirit whispers to me, "Say flame on." So, "[Hebrew sounds.  Then] flame on." Then in the spirit, not in the natural, I see myself burst into flames.
I said, "What is going on?"  God spoke to me, "You've been baptized in the fire of the Holy Spirit + released in the gift of tongues."  I had been approaching it so cerebrally. He had to get me beyond my mind, so I could be led by Him into the thing I'd been seeking from Him for months. 
SID: It's so easy once you are a child of God & born again, in fact, would you lead people in a prayer to know the Messiah like you know Him? 
ROBERT: Absolutely. I declare right now that Messiah Jesus, who loved me so much to not only forgive me of all my sins, but show up and declare his love. May you be engulfed by his love right now. Drawn into the fullness of his heart right now, so that you come into a saving knowledge of this God who loves us, knows exactly how to meet us, knows exactly how to speak to us. May you have that experience too. When you do, all you have to do is what I did. You simply have to say, "Messiah, Jesus, I receive you."
SID: Take that 1st step. Then ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

"You might say, 'The devil has been on my back.
Bless God’s holy name, I’ve been fighting demons, devils & all kind of evil spirits.'  But you know what, friend? Instead of focusing on what the devil is doing to you, it’s time to blast the devil with the power of the Holy Ghost. 
When you’re filled with the Holy Ghost and His dunamis power, you can say to the devil, 'Get out of my: house...body...mind. In the name of JESUS.'  You can say, 'Be healed. Rise. Get up & walk. 
Tornado, go. Rain, come.'  Speaking in tongues is one of the greatest ways to minister to ourselves.
When you speak the language of the Holy Spirit, you find that He’s enabling. He’s a crusher.
He gives you the power to say no. He gives you the power to say yes.
HE IS God's (super) POWER. He is the power to say, 'I will' to God." 
(Let's daily practice, 1 word, sentence, phrase at a time, until we are filled to overflowing, as He begins to overflow. 
We become less & less vulnerable to the influence of others.  He becomes more & more in control)...
Holy Spirit won’t come in unless He’s coming into a temple that belongs to Him that is holy & sanctified by the blood of Jesus. If you’ve never given your life to Jesus, put your hand on your heart.  Pray this:
Jesus, I ask You to forgive me of any sins I’ve committed, anything that I’ve done, said, things I didn’t do or say.
Create in me a clean heart. Purify me from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. Set me apart, right now.
I let go of everything & everybody that has ever done me wrong, or to whom I’ve done wrong.
Come into my heart.  Save & fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus’ name.
I am forgiven. My life is in Your hands. Thank you, Jesus
.' Amen.
Then just open your mouth & speak in faith by the Holy Spirit, speaking silly sounds/syllables/words unknown to you."

 “We look into the spirit to see what Jesus is up to & what Father has planned.  Then we agree with that.
We aren't just making things up as we go along; we're modeling the example of heaven. Sickness & sin are bound in heaven, so we bind them here. Angels & holiness are loosed in heaven, so we loose them here…
Csaba & Eva Gegeny are the anointed couple leading Dunamis Ministries in Hungary…1 of the visions Eva shared illustrates what is going on in the spirit world when we pray.  She saw a huge warrior angel standing at attention. He didn't move until she prayed.  When she began speaking, the words that came out of her mouth were a sword... Because of her prayers, the angel had something to hold onto.  He took the sword & was now ready to fight as her (spoken) words had both equipped & released him for battle. Indeed, the sword of the spirit is the word of God (Eph. 6:17).  If we are ever unsure what to say or how to release our angels, we can allow Holy Spirit to help us by speaking in tongues (Rom. 8:26-27). He will intercede through us for the saints according to the will of God.  Angels have no problem translating this prayer language. 

Father invites us to work together with Him through delegated authority. He calls angels to minister to us.  
He calls us to commission angels (& heavenly host). It is a team effort of His children co-laboring with His angels…Throughout Scripture, angels did what God could have done easily Himself. 
hy didn't God do those things Himself?  For the same reason He doesn't preach the gospel:
He has chosen to let His creation enjoy the privilege of service in His kingdom’...
Indeed, it is our honor to co-labor with God in advancing His kingdom.”

It really is the doorway to the supernatural." -
"God ordained a (Jewish holy) feast every year so that Israel would remember their experience at Mt. Sinai.
It was called variously the "Feast of the 50th Day, Feast Of Weeks, Feast Of Harvest“.
This feast began on the 50th day after Passover.
It was on this very day that God poured out His Spirit in Acts chapter 2, the 1st day of the Feast Of The 50th Day:
The Feast Of Pentecost... (Be reminded) Mount Sinai, the spiritual & physical shadow & history of Penticost, (is where & when God gave Moses the 10 Commandments). -

Joshua 15:35 Jarmuth, Adullam, Socoh, Azekah -
Jarmuth means Height.  Adullam means Refuge.  Socoh means Thorn.  Azekah means Tilled. 
This was from my notebook in 2003. God was telling me that it means, 'Your Height in the Spirit is your Refuge from the Thorn; you must Till your Spiritual Soil'.
This was a Rhema Word to…me that Speaking in Tongues would increase my Spiritual Height & it would cause me to have a Refuge from the effects of the Curse (Thorns), that if I prayed in tongues for many hours.
I would be 'Tilling my Spiritual Soil
', & preparing myself for more Truth from the Word."

Ephesians 6 "says take the helmet of salvation.   
What part of you does your helmet protect? Your head. What does your head stand for? Your though life.
That’s right.  It is so important that we know how to protect our thought life. God has provided a helmet.
Here it is called the helmet of salvation. In 1 Thessalonians 5:8 it’s called the hope of salvation.
You know what protects your mind? Hope.
You’ve got to be an optimist. If you are a pessimist your mind is open to the attacks of Satan.
I have a message about that because it is something I learned about spirits. I was born & brought up a pessimist I suffered agonies in my mind until I learned that I had to change & that I had a helmet that would protect my mind. Alright,
take the helmet of salvation, the sword of the spirit which is the word of God” the spoken word of God. Notice you’ve got 6 items of equipment, all of them are defensive except the last 1.
The sword which is a weapon of attack which only goes as far as your arm can reach.
But the 7th weapon is THE weapon in verse 18:
Praying always with all prayer & supplication in the Spirit (tongues/heavenly prayer language).
Here is where we can reach out and assail Satan’s kingdom in the heavens
. It is what the weapon of prayer is in the spirit (realm)... So we have 7 items of (military) equipment. 5 are defensive, the 6th is the sword which will only reach as far as your arm reaches, but the 7th is what I call God’s intercontinental ballistic missile...
We can assail Satan’s kingdom with the weapon of all prayer. Alright, now I am coming to the very thing that I wanted to deal with, we are going back to Matthew 12 & I am going to show you 1 more verse.
Really all I can do is stimulate your thinking but that’s a lot.  
It always impresses me that Martin Luther started the Protestant reformation by pinning up 90 some thesis.
He did NOT put up the answers. 
He just got them started thinking. Now when they started thinking, things changed. See."

Jackie Pullinger - Signs, wonders, and the very present Kingdom of God - Part 4 - Healing, tongues and salvation in Hong Kong - pseudonym of Roger Mugs editorial from - "Before I went to Hong Kong I had heard that Jackie Pullinger put a high value on tongues & when I arrived after my 1st night I asked if some of the people would lay hands on me to receive the gift.
I'd done some reading on the subject & understood that if I didn't open my mouth nothing would happen, so not long into the prayer I opened my mouth & starting praying.
It was pretty weird at 1st and I definitely wondered if it was from the Lord. However since then I've come to the conclusion that even if it's very natural at 1st - if I am honestly seeking the Lord in this & telling Him that I'm offering up my tongue to Him then He will be faithful to make it into what He desires. 
The next day everyone ate breakfast & headed into the community room to pray in tongues.
Every addict young & old prayed at the top of their lungs in tongues for 15 minutes. It was weird.
But Jackie says she's seen a relationship between how much people are praying in tongues in her ministry & how often she's seeing supernatural things happen, like healing...When someone came to this meeting they would hear a clear presentation of the gospel.  A shockingly large % of people would accept the Lord right then & there.
Then seemingly without exception they would pray in tongues. I was only there 1 night. I may not have understood it, but the best I could tell no one was telling them they should pray in tongues, they just all did...
Now most of these people were messed up in a lot of ways.
Heroin addicts...I remember Jackie walking around the room praying for people...
At 1 point she stopped, turned around, pointed at a guy & said in English, 'That one's got a demon on him there.' Then some folks stood up & ran across the room to begin praying for the guy. 
I don't understand everything that went on that night, but I did understand that these were dirty nasty people both physically & spiritually but these people loved them anyways & the Lord was showing up in powerful ways."
Jackie Pullinger "soon came across the (Hong Kong) Walled City, a dire slum full of Triad gangsters, heroin addicts, prostitution, and with barely a chink of light in the whole place. 10s of 1,000s of desperate people were crammed into a few acres of space. She received the gift of speaking in tongues, & began praying for people while in the Spirit, finding that as she did so, addicts would sometimes detox without any withdrawal symptoms...
In the Old Testament you had a few special people like judges or kings or prophets.
In the New Testament God said, ‘
I will pour my Spirit out on all flesh.’ So, the more you put 1 person on a pedestal, the more people think there’s a special anointing or something, which is NOT true.  It actually makes the Church go backwards & not forwards

Saint Patiens - in Metz, France - Medieval Catholic writers of Acta Sanctorum understood (& accepted) the Christian rite (sacrament/gift/anointing) of speaking of tongues,  which today is called "confirmation" (or actually the consequence/result of the rite). 
They believed this operation  (talking/singing/praying in tongues) was the spontaneous speaking in a foreign language unknown beforehand.

, Samuel S. (1863-1964) -
Maria Woodworth-Etter - December 2, 2013 - 9/6/1947 web post on 9/8/2010 - "Samuel S. Scull...sometimes called 'the father of Pentecost in Arizona,' recounted the early days of the Pentecostal revival in the September 6, 1947, issue of the Pentecostal Evangel. Scull, born in a log cabin in Pennsylvania in 1863, was ordained by the Methodist Church in Iowa in 1895. His pastoral ministry was cut short, however, when he became afflicted with tuberculosis. Upon the advice of his doctor, in 1903 he moved to Arizona. He made a living for his family by selling fruit. Scull was a leader at the small Life Line Mission in Phoenix when the congregation began hearing reports in the summer of 1906 of the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles. According to Scull, the news generated 'great interest among spiritual people in Phoenix & vicinity.'
In the summer of 1907, Scull made a pilgrimage to the Arroyo Seco camp meeting in Los Angeles to check out the emerging revival. Recalling his visit, Scull wrote: "I was much prejudiced at 1st & disposed to be critical, & saw much that I did not like, but was at once impressed with the fact of the overwhelming sense of the presence of God. The very atmosphere seemed charged and the awe of God overshadowed all."
He continued, "I had never heard such raptured praise.
I heard praise in many strange tongues, some interpreted by people who knew the language, but most in an unknown tongue interpreted in the same way as they were given; that is, by Spirit utterance.
Soon I was thoroughly convinced of the genuineness of the work & realized that God was bringing us back to Pentecost of the upper room, &, as far as possible, renewing the power as of the early church."
What Scull witnessed caused him to cast his lot with the Pentecostals:
"The sick were healed, devils cast out, the lame walked, the blind received their sight.
I saw that God was going that way and resolved to gladly follow Him, though I knew it would cost me much."
Scull returned to Phoenix and shared what he had witnessed. This caused conflict & the mission disbanded.
Ironically, Scull had not yet personally experienced Spirit baptism with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Scull was, however, healed of tuberculosis. In December 1907, he traveled to Denver, where he met Maria Woodworth-Etter, the Holiness healing evangelist who would later embrace the Pentecostal message.
She agreed to hold services for Scull in Phoenix.
The meetings with Woodworth-Etter established the Pentecostal movement in Phoenix.
Scull recalled, 'The meeting opened January 2, 1908, with about 75 present. The situation was pecu1iar.
The pastor had not received the Pentecostal baptism, neither had the evangelist, & yet we were holding a Pentecostal meeting.' Scull continued, 'The 1st Wednesday night a little girl fell under the power & lay for 2 hours lost to her surroundings. She came out speaking in 1 of the most beautiful tongues I ever heard.
She had been in heaven & had wonderful things to tell of her experiences there. 
We needed no other advertising; they packed the house, standing room & all, & filled the street outside.
For 8 weeks the tide ran high. From 75-100 were saved & an equal number received the Pentecostal baptism, so wonderfully God wrought.' According to Scull, 'a great number of people were healed of all manner of diseases & infirmities; & Phoenix, then a small town, was profoundly moved. Our halls were filled with sinners & our altars drew many to seek the Lord.'  These spiritual victories brought opposition.
Scull wrote, 'Friends whom I had thought be tried & true, refused even to shake hands with me.
The Methodist church, of which I was an official member, being an ordained elder, dropped me from its membership...we were egged at the altar & had to put heavy screen wire over the windows to keep from being maimed or killed by rocks weighing 4-5 pounds which were thrown through the windows. But the power & glory of God made these things seem of small concern.' What can later generations learn from Pentecostals from 100 years ago? Writing 40 years after the Azusa Street Revival, Scull warned that the church will lose its 'glory & power' unless it gets a 'vision of a mightier Pentecost' & prays for a 'fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.'
Read Scull's article, Pentecost Comes to Arizona, in the September 6, 1947, issue of the Pentecostal Evangel."

Mike Shreve - - 2/2011-15/2013 - transcript - In Isaiah 44, Verses 3 & 4, God said, 'I will pour water on him who is thirsty.' That's our responsibility to be thirsty for God, thirsty for the things of God. God said, 'I will pour the floods on the dry ground.
I will pour My spirit on your seed & my blessing on your offspring.' My daughter was about 5 years old & had not been filled with the Holy Spirit yet. So I started claiming that promise after I found it. Everyday I would confess, now God, you said in your Word, 'I will pour out my spirit on your seed, on your descendants.'
I was in a revival meeting in Carbon Hill, Alabama & she was there with a group of young people.  I preached on the infilling of the Holy Spirit. She came forward, fell out of the power, spoke in tongues about 45 minutes...
Find out what God has already made a commitment to do
. Like Deuteronomy 7:9 says, 'He is the faithful God who keeps covenant & mercy with those who love Him to 1,000 generations'...
Proverbs 11:21 says, 'The seed of the righteous shall be delivered.'
God didn't say light be, could be, should be or maybe.  He said, 'The seed of the righteous SHALL be delivered
I think we need to speak with that kind of forcefulness."
"Father, in the name of Jesus, You said that in the last days You would pour out Your spirit on all flesh, our sons & daughters would prophesy, and our young men would see visions.  I claim that fulfillment, that promise coming to pass in Jesus' name. May every child represented by every person watching this telecast, let everyone of them come unto this canopy of the anointing of God. You're the faithful God who keeps covenant & mercy with those that love You to 1,000 generations. Let covenant come upon them in Jesus' name...
I just feel like there are hundreds of you that are going to see your offspring...delivered, Proverbs 11:21, 'The seed of the righteous shall be delivered'; we prophesy (declare/profess Proverbs ll:21) over you in Jesus' name. Amen. Hallelujah"..."Take that (in Jesus' name.)"

Sorger, Mat - A Divine Fusion Takes Place @ You Have Divine DNA Inside of You! by Matt Sorger. -
"Recently God gave me a vision of what happens to us at salvation & it radically altered the way I see myself.
I saw the moment God encountered Mary in Luke 1:31-35 telling her she would bear the Christ Child.
I saw the Person of the Holy Spirit over-shadow her. I saw Mary's DNA & the Holy Spirit's DNA.
I saw them intertwine & become 1, creating Jesus in her womb, fully God & fully man
Then the vision shifted to me.  I saw myself at salvation.  I saw the Holy Spirit over shadow me & fill me.
My body became the temple of the Holy Spirit
. I also saw my spirit man's DNA & the Holy Spirit's DNA.
I saw them intertwine & become 1. I saw the Holy Spirit wrap around my human spirit like 2 DNA strands coming together as 1, just like when the DNA from a father & mother mix together to form a new baby.
It looked like the Double Helix. As the Holy Spirit wrapped around my human spirit, they fused together, becoming 1 & forming a brand new creation.
This fusion of Holy Spirit & my human spirit formed Christ in me.
Heavenly DNA - Divine Nature -
1 Corinthians 6:17 declares, 'But the person who is united to the Lord becomes 1 spirit with Him.' This revelation was in scripture the whole time.  I became 1 spirit with the Holy Spirit. I now have a new holy, divine nature. This is Christ in me, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27, 2 Peter 1:4) Divine DNA from God was fused into my human spirit causing me to become a partaker of God's divine nature. 
I was truly a brand new creation.  As Holy Spirit became one with my human spirit, I was 'born again'.
Christ was formed inside of me. I was much more than a better version of myself. 
I was something brand new. When you receive Christ as your Savior & the Holy Spirit takes up residence inside of you, He actually fuses Himself together with your spirit.  You become 1 with God. You have His divine nature inside of you. You are a brand new creation, with new desires & a new life. Your core identity is completely transformed. Christ's very nature & identity is now completely formed in your spirit. It's a glorious transformation.
This is why you are holy, righteous & clean. Having divine DNA in your spirit has so many affects on your life as you become transformed in your spirit, soul & body

[Kat Kerr seems to teach that the above occurs at confirmation (baptism in Holy Spirit) rather than salvation (repentance/water/baptism of John).  Notice Kat mentions that Holy Spirit & human spirit exchange a (DNA) soul layer at the time of fusion/conception of new life (whether physical &/or spiritual).  Kat (seems to) suggest that Holy Spirit walks alongside us rather than inside us (at salvation) but that Father God has placed a diamond ring/rock deposit/inside of us (soul) at salvation/time of repentance & saying yes to Messiah. ]

Wallnau, Lance - TRANSCRIPT - LANCE: I don't want to be in politics.
I don't want to be in race issues. I just want to preach the Bible.  (But) hat wasn't what the Lord said to me.
"I'm only answering your prayers." It was like a clear thought. I thought I'm off track.
I said, "Lord, when did I ever pray that I want to get involved with presidential politics or complicated race relations?"
The Lord said, "Every time you pray in tongues you tell me you want to get involved with healing the nation's problems.  I'm putting you where you can do it."  At that moment I thought, my gosh, like you, I'm a passionate believer in praying in the Spirit, but I thought I was praying something else.
I thought I was praying for financial support.  I was praying my way into Trump Towers.

Walters, Kathie - - - Strong Winds Coming - 3/6/2012 - - "I believed that He wanted to make Himself known to them, so I released my faith & believed it. 
When my oldest daughter Faith was 4 years old, 2 angels came & took her into Heaven for several hours. 
She saw & heard things that there was no way she could know in the natural.
She came back speaking in tongues & prophesying & seeing visions.
Jesus baptized her in the Spirit in Heaven
. My youngest daughter Lisa had supernatural experiences of her own, when she was very young. It has never been a question of only her 'Mom & Dad's' God.
God spoke to our kids & showed them the realm of Heaven.  We taught them it was normal."

Walters, Kathie - - 7/15/2013 - edited - "Everything is available, but nothing is automatic. You have to receive it.
Salvation is available, but to benefit from it you have receive Christ into your life as Lord.
Healing is available but you have to receive Jesus the Healer. 
If you don’t believe in healing then you won't get healed.  My little daughter, Faith, was saved when she was 4.
She was hungry for God & wanted to speak in tongues.  1 night 2 angels came & took her to heaven.
They took her around & then brought her to Jesus. Jesus spoke to her & baptized her in the Holy Spirit. 
She came back speaking in tongues. Even a little child can ask.  They don’t have a baby Holy Spirit. 
When I got baptized in the Holy Spirit, I found out then I could get healed.
It took me a little while to figure out how to get healed, as everything up to that point had been in my head.
I had loads of great theology, but God sent an angel to help me get into a place to RECEIVE the healing I needed.
This account is in my book, Angels Watching Over You...
A friend of mine, Bunty, a missionary who had done many missions in Africa)...told me that when they baptize the (African/orphan) children they have to have men standing around to dive into the water after the kids, because the water spirits they have inherited will try & take them to the lake bottom.”

Baptism, Healing & Deliverance - Scripture says, "The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a promise to receive, for He is the Baptizer in the Holy Spirit.
The promise is unto you, your children
& those afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
That's YOU isn't it? You are called & you have a marvelous destiny. 
All of these wonderful things Jesus made available when He rose again & sat down at the Father's right hand.
But you see, everything is available, but nothing is automatic.
You have to receive it. Salvation is available, but to benefit from it you have to receive Christ into your life as Lord.
Healing is available but you have to receive Jesus, the Healer...

I had loads of great theology, but God sent an angel & helped me get into a place to RECEIVE the healing I needed... The biggest thing that made the most difference to me was when I found out about DELIVERANCE.
He is the Deliverer.  A Deliverer came.
It never entered my head that there could actually be demons affecting my life, because I assumed that side of things wasn't real & didn't affect me. I thought I had some personality problems.
I wrestled with those things as a Christian, but that's the way it was.  So now deliverance.
I thought, "What have we here?"  We got thrown into the deep when we came into the realm of the Holy Spirit.
The day after we were filled with the Holy Spirit, the people who brought us in tossed us into a room full of people & said, "Pray for those people to prophesy." "What's that?" we asked, but they didn't have time to tell us.
So we did as we were asked.  That's how we learned."

- "When we went to church Sunday morning, David looked across the room, happy so see a priest. There were always visitors from around the world.
'Look mom,' David said, 'There is a priest over there, if he is here at this meeting so it must be OK.' 
Maisie was relieved to see the priest from Germany.
This priest had been hungry for a while, so had delved into all kinds of eastern religions.
He did every chant, prayer, idol stuff, so he needed a lot of deliverance. 
He was still searching & someone had suggested he come to this revival.

The worship was like a high, powerful anointing.  You could see the glory of the Lord on people's faces. 
About 30 mins later, the priest, who was worshiping too, suddenly let out a loud yell & started sliding down the aisle on his back, demons coming out left, right & center.  Maisie jumped up & called out, 'They are klling the priest.' She ran as fast as she could out of the church & down the street.
David caught up with her almost a mile away, but he couldn't get her back into the church for love or money.
He took her to the place we were staying
When he got back to the church he found the priest praying in tongues. 
What happened?   As the priest reached out to God during the worship the anointing hit him so strong, that the demons from all the false religions started coming out. 
He slid down the aisle, then jumped up into the Baptismal pool.
Someone jumped in after him & baptised him in the Name of Jesus.
He got out of the tank speaking in tongues & prophesing."

Wigglesworth, Smith - - "Born in 1859 into poverty, Smith (edited) Wigglesworth was converted by the Methodists at 8 years of age. Even then, he was hungry for God & hungry for souls. He was in the choir of the local Episcopal church. 'When most of the boys in the choir were 12 years of age they had to be confirmed by the bishop. I was not 12, but between 9 & 10, when the bishop laid his hands on me.
I can remember that as he imposed his hands I had a similar experience to the one I had 40 years later when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. My whole body was filled with the consciousness of God's presence, a consciousness that remained with me for days. After the confirmation service all the other boys were swearing & quarreling.
I wondered what had made the difference between them & me.' (Stanley Frodsham, 'Smith Wigglesworth, Apostle of Faith', pg 13. - Most of the following quotes are also taken from this excellent book). 
Later, Wigglesworth was fully-immersed in water by the Baptists...
Smith Wigglesworth: 'I had the grounding in Bible teaching among the Plymouth Brethren.
I marched under the blood & fire banner of the Salvation Army, learning to win souls in the open air. I received the 2nd blessing of sanctification & a clean heart under the teaching of Reader Harris and the Pentecostal League.
I claimed the gift of the Holy Spirit by faith as I waited 10 days before the Lord.
But in Sunderland, in 1907, I knelt before God & had an Acts 2:4 experience.' (Pg 119).
He described this experience as follows:
 'She [Mrs Boddy, a minister's wife] laid her hands on me & then had to go out of the room.
The fire fell. It was a wonderful time as I was there with God alone. He bathed me in power.
I was conscience of the cleansing of the precious blood. I cried out: "Clean. Clean. Clean."
I was filled with the joy of the consciousness of cleansing. I was given a vision in which I saw the Lord Jesus Christ.  I beheld the empty cross.  I saw Him exalted at the right hand of God the Father.
I could speak no longer in English, but I began to praise Him in other tongues as the Spirit of God gave me utterance.
I knew then, although I might have received anointings previously, that now, at last, I had received the real Baptism in the Holy Spirit as they received on the day of Pentecost.' (Pg 44)...
After this experience, there was no stopping Smith Wigglesworth. He was a flame for God. 
The fire fell wherever he went. He said:  'I believe God's ministers are to be flames of fire.
Nothing less than flames. Nothing less than mighty instruments, with burning messages, with hearts full of love.
They must have a DEPTH OF CONSECRATION, that God has taken full charge of the body. 
It exists only that it may manifest the Glory of God.  A Baptism into death (purifies & energizes) a person.'"

Wommack, Andrew - -
in tongues
builds us up on our most holy faith. 
How many times have you needed your most holy faith to take you through a certain trial. 
Yet you haven’t used this gift of the Holy Spirit? Verse 21 also says we keep ourselves in the love of God when we speak in tongues. Have you ever asked the Lord to pour out His love on you?
I imagine you have, but this doesn’t say to pray that way.  It says we are to keep ourselves in the love of God.
We do that by speaking in tongues.  We don’t ask God for that which He’s already given, we simply stir up the love that has already been commended toward us, by speaking in tongues.
This is a powerful gift. Isaiah 28:11-12 says, 'For with stammering lips & another tongue will he speak to this people.  To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest. 
This is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.' 
Do you ever need rest or refreshing? 
I guarantee that you do, & this verse says speaking in tongues is the way to get it.
We have a tremendously powerful gift available to us through the Holy Spirit, but few people take advantage of it.
Instead, we ask God to do what He told us to do
We need to use this gift of speaking in tongues to stir ourselves up, or we risk sinking to the bottom."
Wommack, Andrew -  "Praying in tongues...
We don't have to wait for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to come on us to speak in tongues. 
We can pray in tongues at any time.  It's not us turning on the Holy Spirit. 
The Holy Spirit is always on and giving us the ability to speak in tongues. Therefore, whenever we turn ourselves on, the gift of tongues is there to allow us to communicate with our heavenly Father. Praise the Lord. 
That's the way it is with all the gifts."
Wommack, Andrew - 11/23/2016 - Those who have invited Yeshua to forgive their sins & be their savior & Lord have become sons/heirs of all that He provided at His death & resurrection. 
However it takes Holy Spirit baptism to release that inheritance (healing/ deliverance/blessings/curse reversal).

Zadai, Kevin L - Heavenly Visitation - 11/2016 Mishpochah newsletter - -
"In 1992...Jesus...said (that) words are of utmost importance to the operation of the realm of the supernatural...
The supernatural realm responds to me when I speak by the Holy Spirit...
The single most important thing I could do to participate in the supernatural realm was to pray in tongues
... The 4 (major) ways that He heals our souls (of accumulated wounds is to)
1...heal them immediately. 
2...continually renewing our minds (via listening to His scriptural Truth). 
3...(continually/consistently praying) in the Holy Spirit
4...Godly counseling (&/or combining all of the above).

KEVIN: He told me that beyond anything else you could do on this earth, it would be the only thing that He would want you to do is yield to the spirit of God. 
That would bring forth that utterance which they call speaking in tongues.
He said that, if we will pray in the spirit to bring out the depths & the mysteries of God out into this realm, that the spiritual realm would become so close to us that we'd begin to operate in the spiritual realm here on earth...
He said, "I'm going to show you how powerful your prayers are, Kevin."  He took me. 
We went to a place in the United States that I recognized as New Mexico.
I was standing on this mountain right above the missile range out there, the test facility.  
I recognized it, because I fly over it a lot. 
As we were standing there, He said, "Start praying, Kevin, in the spirit"...
I yielded and started praying in the spirit. As I did, He pointed & said, "Now watch"...
I saw the explosion.  It looked like the atomic bomb detonation that had gone off in the 40’s. 
It started to explode. This big plume went straight up into the air & was all red & powerful. 
The Lord said, "Most Christians are looking for the spectacular. 
They look at this cloud, but the supernatural is the shock wave that's traveling along the ground
I saw this shock wave go out about 30 miles, knocking everything over. 
He said, "See, Kevin, when you pray, your prayers are effective, moving mountains out of the way. 
You should never give up.  You should always pray
I realize that people were looking for a sign of some sort, a manifestation that it was working. 
I, also, knew that there was demonic activity that would stop people from praying. 
They would actually feel depressed & it would not even be them
(but instead often the invisible 2nd heaven evil influences). 
They would have chemical imbalances in their body, but it was
(often evil spiritual assaults) from the outside (including inherited family demons, witches, Satanists using occult powers, over which Christians have power, when they awaken to & run with that holy revelation) & they were being influenced to think that there was a (medical/psychiatric) problem & (thus often) they would stop praying
There were things that would happen that would stop them from praying. 
The Lord said, "You should never give up praying, because you will get your answer."

When the human being invites Jesus to be his savior & Lord, the Holy Spirit walks beside oneself & takes a soul layer & places it with the Trinity in heaven.   Subsequently, when 1 invites Holy Spirit to baptize him, Holy Spirit infill's him, enabling his character to better do what his heart wants.
Kerr, Kat - Throne Room Declarations - 2009 - Courtroom of Heaven - -
Satan cannot understand "tongues" the most pure/perfect language of heaven.  Use it; it terrifies Satan.
Fear not anger is what moves Satan. 
A sword (forms as we pray) which an angel takes to do war, against that which we just prayed.

A friend of mine was in Bolivia to where they were being taught about the power of praying in the Holy Spirit, praying in this language.  He was a worker, he was a farmer.  1 day his co-worker didn't come to work.
He went to his house at the end of the day, began to smell a stench from his room.
Walked in the door & his friend had hung himself...
All he knew was this language. He took him down from the rope & laid him on the ground, & began to pray in this language for hours & hours & hours. After so many hours a praise came out of him, 'Jesus, I thank you that you are alive. Jesus, I thank you that you are alive.'
After a while the friend sat up. He still wasn't breathing, but he began to sit up. 
The guy continued to pray in the language. After so many hours, the man received breath again, received life again, got saved, met the Holy Spirit & began to pray in the language himself. 
It was by that simple farmer that took God at His word & created that atmosphere of resurrection...
Just recently my 12-year-old had a 105 temperature.  We couldn't believe it.
We didn't know what we were going to do.  I just knew, I'm going to pray in this language.
It's what I've done in 15 years. We're going to do it again.
I said, 'Honey, lay down.'  For about 20-30 minutes I just began to pray in this language.
The atmosphere began to shift.  After about 20-25 minutes literally the fever began to lift off of her.
She says, 'Daddy, I'm feeling better right now.' 
Within 10-15 minutes it was completely off of her & she was completely back to herself.
She literally sweated out right there. 
(When I speak in supernatural language,) It changes the atmosphere...around my house...around my life.
When there's strife, confusion, when there's depression, oppression, weariness, whenever I begin to pray in this language the atmosphere shifts & the Kingdom of Heaven breaks in & brings Divine Order. 
It's peace, joy & righteousness in the Holy Spirit...
The Kingdom of Heaven works by faith. Everything in the Kingdom works by faith. God has a part & you have a part... He won't do your part either & you can't do His... When you begin to sense the welling up of the Holy Spirit it's at that moment where I encourage you, begin to step out & begin to speak as the spirit gives you utterance.
As the spirit gives you utterance just step out...wherever you're at step & begin to jump out.  It's when you do that it may be 1 syllable. It may be a whole bunch of syllables.  But continually say it over & over again...
I want to speak to the other group who 'received the gift' (of the Holy Spirit baptism)...
Take the (honor) badge (&) throw it in the trash.  (We want You Lord alone to get all the glory)... 
Let's begin to ask God for a fresh filling. Ephesians 5 says, 'Go on being filled with the Holy Spirit.'
NOT a one time encounter, but an ongoing, every increasing encounter that opens up the doorway into the supernatural.
  So all of you (both groups) right now just open up your hands like you're receiving a gift...
Repeat this...simple a good Father.  Just close your eyes & say, 'Father, In the name of Yeshua, I ask You to fill me with the Holy Spirit from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. 
I want to speak in supernatural language.  I want to prophesy.  I want everything that You died for. 
So Father right now fill me.  (I receive & thank You.)   In the name of Yeshua.  Amen...
Paul tells us in 1st Corinthians 14, 'When I speak in this language, I'm not speaking to men, I'm NOT speaking TO devils, but I'm speaking straight TO the throne room of God.' 
I have a spirit to Spirit contact & connect with the Father of Glory, the President of the Universe.
I have a direct phone line by my spirit to His...When I pray in this language I'm talking directly TO Him.
That's number 1. Number 2, the Bible says that we speak mysteries out of our spirit straight to God.
These mysteries are hidden truths, not hidden from us, but hidden for us. Truths about God, truths about who He is, what He's like, what He's doing, & how He feels, truths about us, truths about who we are to Him, about our destiny.  I believe that when I’m praying in this language I'm prophesying my (& others') Divine destiny."

of broadcast: Always, always, always pray in tongues; praying in tongues is vital to one's connection to God.  We are praying His will in our lives in a language which Satan cannot understand or sabotage. 
Praying in tongues brings down God's mind into our situation. 
We must seek & request to pray in tongues as 1 of the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit. 
We must pursue God's fruit in our lives.  Tongues must be exercised often in order to yield God's gifts & fruit.

I realize that people were looking for a sign of some sort, a manifestation that it was working. 
I, also, knew that there was demonic activity that would stop people from praying. 
They would actually feel depressed, (but) it would NOT even be them
They would have chemical imbalances in their body, but it was from the outside. 
They were being influenced to think that there was a (medical) problem, so they would stop praying. 
There were things that would happen that would stop them from praying (especially in tongues). 
The Lord said, "You should never give up praying (especially in tongues) because you will get your answer."
Sid:  One of the most exciting things that Kevin came back with is what the Bible says, "You shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit & fire."  Most believers haven' t received this fire. 
Do you realize that when you have this fire the devil can't come near you.
Zadai, Kevin - 10/5/2020 @ + 10/5/2020 - edited/paraphrased -
SID: Kevin Zadai & Kathi, his wife, pray in tongues or supernatural languages more than anyone I know.
They say it's the secret to their power. Why is it so important to pray in tongues,.
KEVIN: It's a command of the Lord (in Romans 8) that we're to yield to the Spirit...
The Spirit of the Lord wants to pray through us, but He wants to pray on our behalf. 
He does this by our yielding to Him. In Romans 8:26 it says that in our weakness, Holy Spirit comes in, grabs & lifts us up & super intercedes through us the mysteries of God's will.
So, that's a great deal that we can now pray perfect prayers. So praying in tongues is really a command of the Lord.  Paul said, I pray in tongues more than all of you do, & he was an apostle...
We're just believers, but we can be super interceding for:
this nation, world, our daily lives. Kathi & I are addicted to speaking in tongues (also called) praying in the Spirit...
We believe as the Bible teaches, that the Holy Spirit baptism is for every believer in (Messiah Jesus).
Every believer needs to pray in tongues.
Whoever wakes up 1st starts praying in tongues & yells. Yes, really loud & wakes the other person up.
Cause we're saying yes to God's will.
We both get up..praying in tongues. We go out, push the (coffee) brew button...
We sit & pray in tongues for a period of time.
Then we will talk amongst each other & ask what is the Lord showing us? Or what is it that the Lord is telling us?
Should we stay up & do some more? If we start to fall asleep, we do circles inside our house.
KATHI: The bottom line is just like Jesus has already died (& risen). Holy Spirit has already come.
It's like a Christmas present, He just wants us to receive. Father, we thank You for sending Holy spirit.
SID: We thank you for sending the Holy Spirit, Father.
KATHI: We thank You, Jesus for dying & making a way. 
SID: We thank you, Jesus for dying and making a way.
Lord we receive You Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues. 
SID:  Lord, we receive You Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues
KATHI: Now I'm going to pray for you.
Lord, I pray that You release their tongue & fill them to overflowing with Your Holy Spirit & fire in Jesus' name.  (Amen)   It says in Acts 2:4, they began to speak as Holy Spirit gave them utterance.
So it's a partnership, just like a baby who learns how to talk. He has to open his mouth.
Let's all pray together. If you've never spoken (in tongues), just make a sound.  Thank You Father.  Thank You Lord. 
SID: Pray for the baptism of the Holy Fire. (which is another spiritual step).
KEVIN: In the name of Jesus. I thank you that you came to baptize in the spirit & with fire.
I thank you that the same fire that's burning right before you right now at the altar, the same fire that's on the sapphire floor.  The same fire that's lighting up the seraphim's wings, right now...
We receive that fire in the name of Jesus. Fire.  Hallelujah. Thank you, Father.
Fire. Receive the fire. This is permanent. This is a fire that does not go out, says the Lord. Receive the fire.
Yield to the fire. This is the beginning of your life, where you end & I begin
says the Lord. It begins with fire.
Yield to the fire. I have this scroll in my hand that is written about you. I'm opening it. It's a good report.
It's 1 that you will succeed.  You will prosper everything you put your hand to do.
The Lord said, I have plans for youThey're good plans. Plans for you to prosper.  Fire is your friend.
KATHI: Yes. Embrace the fire.
KEVIN: Jesus, thank you.
KATHI: Thank you, Father

, Billye - 6/2/2015 - summary regarding
"God needs a body in the earth, speaking words that He can clothe with reality. Just like we see the law of creation at work in Genesis 1:2 when the Holy Spirit was hovering, waiting for God’s words, the Holy Spirit is hovering over us, waiting for us to speak God’s words so He can bring about His will in the earth. 
God has called us to set aside a time every day to pray in the Spirit.
We each have a body, a badge of authority & our part is to present that to Him.
The Holy Spirit gives us the utterance.  We use our tongues to speak it.  Then He will bring it about. 
If we’re going to pray in the end of days, we need to know about the authority that we have in prayer.
When Jesus was raised, we were raised with Him, seated at the right hand of the Father & given all *authority in the earth.
As members of the body of Christ who have the privilege of living in the end of days, God needs us to take that authority & say what God has for us to say."  *(We receive our spiritual inheritance when we become of age: repent, acknowledge Jesus as savior, Lord & baptizer in Holy Spirit + begin to enforce our spiritual legal rights, in Jesus' name. 
God's power is not so much what we believe, but rather what we DO with & ACT on what we believe.)

Brown, Tom - -
"The Apostle Paul writes, 'He who speaks in tongues edifies himself...
I would like every one of you to speak in tongues.' (1 Corinthians 14:4,5)...
Where does tongues come from?  It comes from Heaven. Tongues is the heavenly language.
It is what is spoken in heaven; the only difference is that the people in heaven understand what they are saying.
Here on earth Paul says, "For anyone who speaks in tongues does not speak to men but to God.
Indeed, no one understand him; he utters mysteries with his spirit" (v. 2)...Jesus says that those who believe in Him will 'speak in new tongues' (Mark 16:17). The word 'new' means appearing for the 1st time.
No one had spoken these languages before. Contrary to bad theology tongues is not an ability given to preach the gospel in the language of foreigners. This would make tongues 'old' languages.
It is only appropriate that 'new tongues' should be spoken by those of the 'new birth.'
It is natural and normal to speak in the language of your birth. We are born again from above, therefore we should speak the language from above-that language is called 'new tongues'...
Theologians often confuse the baptism in the Holy Spirit with salvation (often depriving themselves & their congregations of the provisions, inheritances, blessings, miracles, healings, and deliverances Jesus provided by His death & ascension into heaven.  Jesus did not keep some back for Himself.  He gave us all He had, up front. 
Do not take half a loaf when you could have had a whole loaf. 
Do not short change yourself here on earth, & kick yourself when you get to heaven, with I should have.).
They (theologians) often regard these 2 experiences as being the same. This confuses believers...
They incorrectly assume that salvation is the same as the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
The Bible does not teach this. The Bible clearly teaches that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate experience from salvation & comes after a person is saved, although it can occur at the time of salvation...(see Acts 8:5-25)... (see Acts 19:1-7)...Paul asked the question, 'Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?'...
The physical proof of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the same evidence that the disciples had: speaking in tongues.  You may have other evidences as well, but the 1 evidence (from Tom Brown's understanding of Scripture + his personal experience is that) you should have is speaking in tongues.  There are 5 examples in the Bible of people receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit (see Acts 2:4; 8:17; 9:17; 10:44; 19:6)...
I encourage you to seek scriptural evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit & to settle for nothing but the best.

He gives us 5 points he took from Chris Simpson’s book Keeping Demons Out Once They Are Cast Out which are also used to enforce a powerful Christian walk: 1) disciplined prayer life 2) build a fasting regimen 3) fall in love with the Word of God 4) eliminate mind junk 5) keep short accounts...
You can always...speak in tongues which will expand your spiritual perimeter.  
can help us seal off a major in-road to the devil...
Only through the Spirit do we have any hope of controlling the soul."

Halverson, Phillip & Fern - Secrets of Intercession - 1983 post 5/3/2017 - The purpose of the Holy Spirit baptism is to do spiritual warfare in the dark places & to snatch captives out.

Remember to journal/record/date what the Lord reveals/hints/impresses upon you, even if it is bits & pieces. 
If/when you meet the spiritual enemy over a city & he reveals his plans, you reveal God's plans. 
Perhaps the Lord will tell you to go & break his power.  You can pray & lift another's burden off.
Halverson, Philip & Fern @ 5/29/2020 -
"Someone I (Billye Brim) consider to be the most powerful man of prayer I’ve ever known, Brother Phillip Halverson, lived in St Paul. (This is just my opinion for I am not 1 divinely commissioned to rate pray-ers.)
Lynne Hammond & I learned from this man who prayed on a level & in a realm of the Spirit few have ever touched.
In a
recent blog I wrote about the space scientist Clyde McGee.
Brother Halverson was used by the Lord to pray over 'the birds' before he met Clyde.
When the 2 met they discovered Phil had been praying over the ground-breaking technology God was revealing to Clyde & 2 other men.  When I prayed with Brother Halverson it was difficult to pray.
This was because I was listening.  As he moved in (praying in) the Spirit (tongues), words in English would come out. Often he prayed about something.  You would see it in the news some weeks later.
Included here (in editorial) is a video (link) so can see how this man prayed" (interchanging tongues with English).

Bill Hamon - 5/8/2017 - - Significant -

BILL:  After the preaching we all went to the altar & started praying.
All of a sudden the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said..."I've got something new for you"...
For the next 4 hours, I'll use modern terminology from computers today that they didn't have then.
But it was in modern terminology, my spirit uploaded to God & God's Spirit downloaded to me.
I would speak for about 5 minutes in a more Spanish or Italian, or French language. 
It would go appealing, requesting. I'd go [speaking in tongues].
It would go about 5 minutes then stop just like that. Then I'd switch & God would download again. 
It would be in a German, Russian type language. [speaking in tongues].
I could sense what I was saying, but I didn't understand it.
You could sense what people are talking & hear us. He was instructing me.
That went on off & on about 5 minutes for 4 hours. 3 months later, the Bible College split right down the middle, 5 teachers left. All these students were very confused.  They didn't know what to do.
I was praying, seeking God. God told me, "Bill, don't worry about it. I'll put it in modern terminology.
While you prayed for 4 hours, I pre-programmed your spirit & mind. You cannot fail.
You won't make the wrong decision.  I've already pre-programmed you.
You just go with the flow. I'm going to direct. I'll call circumstances & providence. 
You'll be moved right into My time & purpose.  You are already pre-programmed. You can't miss it
God's gift to the world was his only begotten son. Out of all of His wisdom & resources the only way to redeem mankind was through the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. So He gave that gift.
Then Jesus said, "I've come to do Thy will, O Lord." He came at the will of the Father, gave His life on the cross, because He came to save sinners, because He had to have sinners to make saints. Jesus came & died on the cross, purchased the church with his blood.  Then He wanted to send His gift of the Holy Spirit back to the church to convert, convince, mature & equip the church with the gifts of the Spirit. When Jesus went back (to heaven) He sent the Holy Spirit.  Holy Spirit wanted to give His gift to the individual believer. He searched all of Heaven, all of God's treasures, all that God had to offer in Heaven. God had agreed the greatest & best gift He could possibly give the individual believer was your own spirit language, where God is a Spirit. 
The worshiper must worship in spirit & truth. So when you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, which is your spirit language, that's the gift, evangelicals get upset about, because they think we're saying you don't have the Holy Spirit until you talk in tongues.  Now I was born of the Spirit, so I had the Holy Spirit, but I didn't have the Holy Spirit's gift. See, it's a gift of the Holy Spirit, like the gift of God is eternal life.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is your spirit language. 
That spirit language has many, many, many benefit s that 90% of Christians don't use...
Speaking in tongues does the same thing for our spirit person as your heart does for your natural person.  Your heart beats & puts blood throughout all your veins.  That life -giving blood is what keeps you going.
Well speaking in tongues floods & pumps the Holy Spirit presence throughout your whole spirit, soul & body. 
Oral Roberts University did research & found that it increases your immunity system 35%...
It activates the spirit of wisdom & revelation, empowers you for ministry, benefits healing of your brain & mind, builds your faith. The only 2 proven ways I know to build your faith is the Word of God & praying in tongues.
A psychiatrist received the gift in the charismatic movement. He said, "Praying in tongues clears out your sub-conscious; your spirit clears out your fears, anxieties, traumas (enabling you) to love & worship God. 
You can't do it (spiritual therapy or even adequate/sufficient psychiatric therapy) in the natural tongue.
You've got your own built-in psychiatrist.  You don't have to go crazy
It's a language of the spirit. That's the reason I call it your spirit language, because it is a language.
Paul said if I pray in tongues in my spirit language, my spirit praise, but my mind is (mainly) inactive (listening, but not articulating, because the invisible spiritual world is in a different realm than the visible physical realm).
He says it's inactive...
When you receive born-again experience, God washes away all your sins & makes a new creation out of you.  That's not just religious.  You literally become a new creation in Christ. All things pass away, all things become new.  That's the father of all miracles, the born-again experience. Then the mother of all miracles is what James said, "No man can tame the tongue, but God can."  So when you receive your spirit language, God tames your tongue & speaks a language through it, that's the mother of all miracles...
If you've got the faith you've just got to exercise it...
You've got your own built-in power plant within you when you receive your Holy Spirit language...
We've got our own hydroelectric power plant, only it's a Holy Ghost power plant...
A dam has a reservoir, but it's not producing any power. certain things have to happen for it to produce power...
They have water gates. They open that water gate.  There's a big turbine like the blades on a jet plane. 
When the water hits those curved blades it's turned on real fast, into a gigantic dynamo...described as a mechanical instrument that produces invisible power called electricity. Jesus said, "After you receive the Holy Spirit you shall have power." So you get the power.  The water gate is our mouth. The turbine is our tongue.
Jesus said, "Out of your inner most being will flow innermost living water." This river of water that's been backed up, God is flowing, when these blades go real fast...It turns & generates millions of volts of electricity. 
So we have our own built-in Holy Ghost power plant.  We can produce that power.
A Christian never has an excuse not to be full of power.  He transforms to us what we're capable of receiving. 
Then we manifest the gifts of the Spirit, healings, miracles, signs, accomplishments.
For that to happen, not just be filled with the Spirit, you've got to open the water gate, your mouth, my spirit, the Holy Spirit, that produces: love, joy, peace, power, faith, revelation.
It floods my whole being with the presence of God & quickens you, renews your youth, gives you faith, power & anointing... "Understand.  Pray in tongues because God is light, the light is in you & the Holy Spirit's light. 
When you pray in tongues, you pray at the speed of light.
When you pray (speak out loud) in your natural language you pray at the speed of sound...
Remember how you got saved, you just believed in the Lord Jesus Christ & He came into your heart. 
It's simple.  You've got to receive the Holy Spirit. The Bible says receive the Holy Spirit.
He's already made it available.
It's already done for you. It's waiting for you.  It's a simple act of faith. You just believe God. It's hard to explain.
It's like trying to explain how the red blood of Jesus washed away my black sins & makes me white as snow, but it works... I'm going to pray for you right now.  When I do...just open your mouth. 
Don't say Jesus, hallelujah, amen.
Just open your mouth & say, "Lord, I Jesus' name, the promise You sent, the (person of the) Holy Spirit.  I receive the Holy Spirit's gift of Your own spirit language now in Jesus' name."
In Jesus' name be filled with the Holy Spirit. You're going to be able to speak this language any time anywhere you want to for the rest of your life. It's your gift.  Receive it now in Jesus' name. Be filled, to overflowing & grow in the grace & knowledge of Jesus Christ.  Fulfill your destiny with the greatest gift Jesus can give for the church, your own spirit language. You've got it now. Go for it. Hallelujah. Amen.

"Praying in the Spirit (tongues) is the secret to both survival & success for anyone who seeks to walk in faith & power."
Hinn, Benny - Intimacy with God #3.3  9/11/2009  - -
In our prayer relationship with God, there is the outer court, where the flesh is self-centered. 
nd, there is the inner court where we wait for God (like those in a doctor's outside waiting room) and pray in tongues
rd, there is the holy of holies where God, not us, speaks.  Incidentally, there are 3 types of tongues, according to Benny Hinn.  There is also a difference between praying with & in tongues. 
Perhaps 1 difference is our spirit praying vs the Holy Spirit praying?  Jesus prays/intercedes for us to enter into the Holy of Holies, whereas, the Holy Spirit inside us prays/intercedes for the Mind of Christ to be formed in us & for His plans to be worked out through our obedience/lives/flesh.

Schitter, Sieglinde - Dr. of Psychology in Austria - - Edited Excerpt -
"I was heading to a Psychology seminar, from Austria to Croatia. I didn't want to go because I was sick with the flu, but God spoke & said He wants me to go.  A girl friend of mine brought her car & drove me to the seminar in Croatia. We were the only Christians.  All the others were New Age people.
The next morning when the seminar started I woke up.  I was not ill anymore...
The day was so beautiful. I walked out through the field..happy & thankful that I was not sick anymore.  I started to praise Jesus in tongues about 1/2 hour just walking in the sunshine praising singing in the Spirit
I came back at the breakfast table. 
All the other people said,'Oh you are not sick anymore?', 'No I am healthy today.'
They said, 'Why are you so glowing? You are glowing & so shiny?'   Perhaps it is because I was walking in the field & praising God in tongues.  The New Age people said, 'Oh why I have never heard about this, what is it?' 
I told them briefly about 20 years ago I asked Jesus to come into my heart, I got the gift of the Holy Spirit & started praying in tongues.  I can speak or sing in tongues & that is what that is.
(Oh I forgot to tell that on the field when I was praising I saw poppy flowers.
I picked a poppy & put it into my lapel close to my heart). 
The New Age people said, 'Oh that flower is so beautiful, where did you get it?' 'Oh, in the field.'
So 1 of the girls had the idea, went & picked for everyone in the seminar, a Poppy flower.
Everyone placed their Poppy flower in a vase.  When I came in, I also put my Poppy flower in the vase. 
Everyone said, 'Oh look your Poppy flower has a different color. Yours has a dark red & ours has a light red.'
I had put my flower in the middle, for I was the last 1 to place mine in the vase.  The seminar started. 
At the end of the day, we looked at the flowers.  All the Poppys were wilted, except mine. In the midst of all the wilted Poppy’s, my flower was standing straight up to heaven & had all its leaves on it just glowing.
Everyone said, "Oh look that is Sieglinde's Poppy flower, we know it because it is dark red & in the middle.
I said, 'Oh I don't understand why my Poppy flower is straight & not wilted.' The New Age people said, 'Oh that is very clear, it’s straight & not wilted because it was on your heart, & you have Jesus in your heart.
It came in contact with Jesus' powerful energy.'
I was surprised myself to hear this answer.  The seminar was going on for 3 days. 
On the 3rd day all the flowers had wilted but not mine.  Mine was still straight & shiny with 3 leaves pointed upward toward heaven & 2 pointed downward toward the other Poppy flowers. 
The New Age people said, 'Oh we would like to have a picture of Sieglinde & all the Poppy flowers.' 
We took a picture & could view it immediately. The interesting thing was that on the picture you could see in the picture a huge 'J' in gold sparkles it was not in reality, it was only in the picture. It was very clear. 
I said, 'Oh what is that on my chest?'
The New age people said, 'That is a "J"  in gold so that means Jesus wants to give us a message through you to show us that He is real.'  When they said this, the Holy Spirit fell on me, spoke to my heart & said to stand up & sing in tongues in your heavenly language.  I didn't dare to, because I had to ask the leader of the seminar.
I told her I have an impression to stand up and sing in tongues.  She said, 'Alright just stand up & do it.' 
The New Age people said again, 'Jesus wants to give us a message through Sieglinde.' 
I stood up. Holy Spirit fell on me again, so I started to sing in tongues for about 10 minutes.
When I opened my eyes, I could see them all on the floor.  Some were weeping. 
Some were laughing. Afterwards I had a prophecy for them.  Then I was on the floor with my face on the floor along with them. We stayed on the floor for some time.  Later the New Age people told me some saw Jesus.
Some heard Him speaking to their heart; everyone had a visitation of Jesus Christ. They said,  'We want to come to your school in the Fall because where you are Jesus is also.'  I said, 'But it is a psychology school not a spiritual school,' but they didn’t care as long as I promised to sing in the heavenly language.
That is wonderful how God touches those who are not even looking out for Him but in their heart they are hungry. Yours in Jesus, Seiglinde, C/O:

Schneider, Messianic Rabbi Kirt - - Bissfield, Michigan, USA - 12/12/2010 Daystar broadcast - Schneider (a rabbi who speaks in unknown tongues) mentions that his understanding of tongues at the original Pentecost was speaking in "known" tongues (languages understood by other nationalities). 
He seems to indicate that private speaking in tongues is good, but NOT a sign of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Stark, Emma - (edited excerpt)
Stark, Emma – Audio @

EMMA: I'm 4th generation preacher, this godly legacy, but it was Father, Son & Holy Scriptures.
We had NO idea Who the Holy Spirit was. I remember being in the school canteen (seeing a) whole wall full of faces watching me, which I know were (good) watcher angels & (bad) watcher demons.
I remember writing to my mom & dad saying, “What's going on?”
I grew up in Northern Ireland. It was the time of the troubles. There were bombs, the IRA, shooting.
My father was a clergyman in the church. I would say to him, “Dad, dad, I think there's going to be a bomb go off.
Dad, dad, I think so & so is going to be shot.
That phone call is going to be somebody telling you that this person in your church has been murdered.”
EMMA: I was born again at 6.
SID: At 18 something very dramatic happened.
EMMA: That was when I got filled with the Spirit of God. I'd left home. I'd gone to study at university & was (spiritually) hungry.  Holy Spirit fell on me. I passed out on the floor. I went straight into this extreme, open vision.
There were chariots & angels, coming out of the sky towards me. I was speaking in tongues.
Couldn't move for hours & had to be carried back to my room. I thought that happens to everybody, but (no) everybody doesn’t know when the bomb’s going to go off or when there's going to be somebody shot dead?
It wasn't until later that I realized that (neither foreknowledge nor Holy Spirit baptism) is not everybody's experience.  However, it should be. It can be.
I believe that God is calling people into that place where they can be wildly encountering their God.
SID: You said to me that every believer, whether they're 6 or 96 years of age, can operate in this supernatural knowledge or prophesy.  
EMMA: Totally. I think we have got to get over our false humility & low self esteem (satan’s attempt to) disqualify us.  We're children of the Most High God. The word of God is clear: You can all prophesy.
I believe that it's not just wee sweet words.  God just thinks you're awesome.
I believe it's more than just activating people to hear God. 
It's activating people to be weapons in the hand of God...
SID:  You raised your children when they were little to operate this way...
You have the most sensational keys that you teach to walk in the power, prophecy & speak words of knowledge.
EMMA: I think we pray in tongues a lot. If you don't have the gift of speaking in tongues, you need to ask for it right now, because tongues is like a motor, a generator.
The more you speak in tongues, the easier it is to bring a word to the Lord & revelation.
But more than that, because Jude says, build yourself up in your most Holy faith.
The more you pray by speaking in tongues, the more you get built up (like a battery). It's a faith builder.
We actually have evidence that when we get sick/unwell & we pray in tongues, the sickness just disappears, because of the nature of how that gift starts to build up and establish you in strength (& health reserve).
That's a massive top tip, but the key to this gift above everything else is practice.
If you don't practice, you will always hit a glass ceiling. It does not matter how much you pray or fast
, unless you have got to the place where you put the English (native) language or your language (mouth/tongues) on the moving of the (Holy) spirit, then you will always be capped.
I worked in pharmaceuticals for years. I used to drive around in my car with my legal drugs in the back.
I would drive past people at top speed.  I was never going to see or talk to them.
I didn't know who they were, but I would allow God to highlight somebody out the window of the car.  
I would start to put English words on what I felt the spirit of God would be saying to them.
Should I ever have a conversation?  I spent hours just practicing (in tongues/an unknown spiritual language).  
So when I (heard & obeyed Holy Spirit &) came to the point (of ministering to) somebody with skin on, I already had hours of practice tucked under my belt. Now I'm perpetually frustrated with my own prophetic level.
I don't know a prophet who ever feels they've arrived. So I practice.  I walk my dog in the park.
I'm saying TO the trees, trees, “Do you know what God is going to do in this area of Scotland?”
I fly in the airplane. I say, “Do you know what God is going to do over the nation I'm flying over.”  Why?
Because I'm continually in this practice place, so that when it matters, when it's a queen, a politician, a UN ambassador, that I have practiced enough (my spirit has chatted with Holy Spirit enough) to know what God actually thinks in an instant.
I'm going to release 2 things. I'm going to release you into a lifestyle of (1) practicing (being in) God’s presence & (2) practicing hearing His voice. I'm going to loose such a surge of courage in you that people are going to go, “What happened to you? You're so changed.”
So I want you to raise your hands.  Grab hold of this as I release it to you. Okay?  
In the name of Jesus, King above all Kings, I loose you into the deep waters of a lifestyle of revelation, of what I know of practice, of what I know the day to day art of hearing His voice.  Right now, grab and allow them to become your reality.  But more than that, every bit of low self-esteem and intimidation, I break off you right now. I loose to you, this surge of supernatural boldness, this confidence in your King. I say, warriors awake, come alive. Warriors be established across the nations as those who know what it is to rescue the lost.
Those who fight until God’s kingdom comes. Be pioneers & on the cutting edge.
I hear the Spirit of the Lord say, “I am giving the pioneers back their cutting edge.
I am going & grabbing them even from the places where they've gone to sleep
The Lord says, “ There is a supernatural alarm clock that is going off in the spirit realm. Can you hear it?
I am giving you back your wild undomesticated side again.
You will be those who were like a whirlwind to go across nations.
My power will sit on you like never before
,”  This is a whole commissioning, not just a prayer, so I loose to sit on your shoulders, a re-commissioning to go again, passionate, wild 1st love, a commissioning as a warrior.
The Lord says, “I'm picking you up from where you are & putting you back in My army.
See you have warrior angels to the left & the right of you.  
I establish you fully in the squadrons & battalions of My army,” says God. “I say advance.”  Amen.

I just had that faith, again that transfer the anointing of God from Rufus Dumford my Uncle the Holy Ghost filled man. See, that’s what he would have done had he been there.
I just feel that boldness I wanted to pray for this man for this blind eye.  God did this outstanding miracle for him.
Uncle Rufus of course had this gift of diverse tongues; he could speak in different languages
(under the anointing of the Holy Spirit). He only had a 3rd grade education, but you have this gift too.

Stone, Perry – Secrets of the Spirit World - Born-again Christians not only need the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, but also need to increase the use/length/frequency/tenacity of it, in order to withstand/reverse future demonic assaults.

Stone, Perry –
PERRY: He (dad) said the Lord spoke to him...about a month before he passed, that in the last days as we come closer to the time of the end, believers were going to come under a stress, a lot of Satanic temptation.
Some of this will be temptations that people have never dealt with
, he said, godly people.  He said some will be sexual temptations with thoughts in their mind to do things that they've never thought of doing.
He said, he was crying when he told me this.
He said, "Please tell them that the Lord said they have to pray excessively in the Holy Spirit.
They have to use the prayer language of the Spirit, & when they're under temptation, don't try to fight it by rebuking it in your natural tongue.  Fight it by praying heavy in the Spirit of God to get your mind renewed
That was 1 of the last things he said.
SID: I have to tell you, Perry, I feel like I don't want to go out in the world unless I've prayed for about an hour in tongues.  I've been doing this now for the last few years. I've been urging everyone else.
Stone, Perry @ 7/8/2017
PERRY: Being raised in a Full Gospel minister’s home by a father who was an anointed preacher & diligent prayer warrior who spent practically every day, at some point, praying in the prayer language of the Holy Spirit, it was never difficult for me to believe in or accept the supernatural power of God as a vital part of our spiritual lives...
I once asked him when or where he had learned to pray with such an anointing & why he prayed so much in the prayer language of the Holy Spirit (called speaking in unknown or other tongues, meaning a language not known to the speaker – Acts 2:1-4; 10:46; 19:6; 1 Corinthians 14:8).
Dad said that he learned the importance of praying in the Spirit when ministering & praying with his Uncle Rufus Dunford, a man who operated in the gift of divers tongues and interpretation (see 1 Corinthians 14).
When Dad & Rufus prayed, they often interceded for at least 1 hour & much of the prayer was praying in the Holy Spirit. Both Dad & Rufus noted the passage in Jude which read, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit” (Jude 20)
The Bypass of the Holy Spirit - When a believer prays in their native tongue, such as English, the human intellect can build a wall of unbelief, especially when a person is praying over what seems to be an impossible situation.
When we pray for situations that are not complicated or in need of miraculous intervention, it's easy to pray & believe.
But when special intervention is required or physical healing appears impossible, the voice of the human inner conscience can whisper, “This can’t happen.  You know people die when they are struck with this disease.
The doctor has already given up on them & healing is impossible.”
To bypass unbelief, God has provided the avenue of the Holy Spirit in which to release prayers that are spoken directly to God out of your spirit through the language of God.
By praying in the Spirit, Paul informs us that “our understanding is unfruitful.”
(1 Corinthians 14:14). The Greek word unfruitful here is arkarpos, which means to be barren, meaning that when you are praying in the Holy Spirit, there is no interrupting barrier being created by your human intellect.
Since age 11, I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit & have exercised this gift when praying in “unknown” or “other” tongues (the prayer language assigned to me by the Holy Spirit”.
In my earlier ministry, when local church revivals would extend for many weeks, I would spend the greater part of the afternoon prior to each service in prayer. During those seasons of intense intercession, I would pray with my understanding, then pray in the Spirit, then return back to my understanding.
I began to observe that the revelation the Lord would give me concerning the nightly message often came after praying in the Spirit.  This is because the Holy Spirit knows the mind of God (Roman 8:26-28)...
When we pray in the Spirit we are speaking spiritual mysteries (1 Cor. 14:4) that can be interpreted back to our minds for our understanding.  Thus, we can all tap into the will of God when praying in the Spirit.
The phrase “building up yourselves” (Jude 20) is a Greek phrase referring to building a building upon a foundation.  The cornerstone of our foundation is laid the moment we receive Christ as our Redeemer & Savior.
Christ is the chief cornerstone
(1 Pet. 2:6) & we are lively stones built upon a spiritual house to offer up spiritual sacrifices
(1 Peter  2:5). By praying in the prayer language of the Holy Spirit, we are building a spiritual house, with the doctrine of Christ & the Apostles as the foundation.
As we grow in the grace & knowledge of Christ, we build the house: the bedroom of intimate prayer. 
The kitchen of feeding from the Word, the living room of fellowship with believers & the private study of revelation of the Word...
Previous generations in the Pentecostal & Full-Gospel congregations emphasized the importance of being filled with the Spirit, teaching that once a person was converted to Christ they should immediately seek the infilling of God’s power through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The danger today is that conversion to Christ has become a ritual...
Some churches seldom, if ever, have a service in which they pray for those desiring the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
1 reason is the fear of emotionalism or someone getting “out of order” & offending the others.
Our ministry, however, has seen over 100,000 individuals from all denominations baptized in the Holy Spirit.
One of my 1st messages at age 17 was on the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
After almost 37 years of ministry, I have observed that amazing transformation & higher levels of faith & joy follow the spiritual truth that accompanies the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

Trachsel, Jean Luc @ Watch or Listen 7/10-16/2023 RECOMMENDED - (edited)
6 generations of his Swiss ancestors were born-again & some pastored.  At 5 he invited Jesus to be his Messiah.  At 6 his his "parents did a simple prayer that every parent should do. They say, 'Father, baptize our son with the Holy Spirit.' Heaven just opened & the fire of the Holy Ghost came over me from the top of my head to the sole of my feet. The glory of God invaded my life, & I heard out loud God calling me to preach the gospel to the nations of the world. In the same fire, I heard out loud, 'Europe shall be saved'...
(Later) at the age of 16, I discover it was not just a fire or an atmosphere, but He was a person & I made a covenant with Him. I say, 'Holy Spirit, I'm ready now to go to preach gospel. I'm shy'...
I ask, 'Fill my mouth with Your Word.' The condition is that you confirm it with signs, wonders, healings & miracles. As a sign of that, I want today to make this covenant & ask You to become my best friend.
From that time I am traveling around the world with my best friend & partner, so we walk together...
When I'm praying for the sick, if I'm in front of hundreds of thousands, or if it's by phone or if it's on the street, the 1st things I do I connect to Jehovah-Rapha, God the healer. It could be just few seconds, but I just go to the source is the healer. The 2nd thing I put my faith feet on the legal foundation, because we are living in a spiritual world. The things that has been set up, it's Isaiah 53:5, 'Through the stripes of Jesus there is healing.' When I pray for the sick, I know it's done (already). It has been paid because Jesus died on the cross & through His stripes, there is healing....Right now, the benefits of the cross are just flowing to you at your house... If you have pain in your hands, that's the reason He has been nailed (in His hands/wrists). Receive His healing power in your hands, the same in your feet (ankles) where He was nailed). Those who have mental trouble, He wore a crown that went probably to the brain with crazy pain, but through His stripes right now, every mental trouble, disease is healed in the name of Jesus Christ. Any pain that you have right now, is illegal. The legal foundation is that through the stripes of Jesus, there is healing right now.
Receive it right now in Jesus' name
(As a college student) studying at ORU...(often) I was praying & fasting, having this key to this personal, private room of Oral (Roberts). For months, I was just on my knee praying, crying out to the Lord.
I never forget.  1 day the Lord said, 'Go just to this little door. There is a little hole, just look in it.'
I look & see the Lord releasing a very strong anointing about Acts 10:38. Anointed by the Holy Spirit to do the great things doing miracles. I got this revelation: We need not only the Holy Spirit anointing, but (also) Jesus in ourself - both... Also the Lord told me, "Jean Luc, what I have done in the past will be greater (in times) to come. Now...see those who are before you...Take their falling mantles (but), don't copy what they have done, but hit your Jordan & enter your Promised Land.' Back in Switzerland the power of God started to move in a different but strong way... (Reinhardt) Bonnke was a very close friend, a mentor, but also I had the chance to speak with Oral (Roberts) & Ralph Wilkerson. All of them, they had a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is really the key."

Walters, Kathy @ -

Why is tongues so powerful & what does making these weird one syllable sounds have to do with my destiny? 
It is because tongues is Gods way of praying through us without our mind or agenda getting in the way & dictating terms, in other words, He is praying His perfect will for us….through us."

Wigglesworth, Smith by Montgomery, Mel C. -
4cadd53a/ar1/blogs11/198999/Goodwins_Wigglesworth.pdf - with permission -
Wigglesworth’s pattern of speaking (from the pulpit during a sermon delivery) brief messages in tongues & interpreting them was common also in the ministry of the Goodwins.   It was the usual order of things for Brother Goodwin to pause, perhaps even several times, during his sermon. Oftentimes, Sister Goodwin would be inspired of the Holy Spirit to suddenly speak a message in tongues varying in length from an apparent sentence or 2 to perhaps 1 that would be of about a paragraph in length.  Brother Goodwin would listen & immediately interpret the message. 
Sometimes Sister Goodwin would give perhaps several brief messages, which Brother Goodwin would interpret. This was both amazing & inspiring to see & hear...
They came into this anointing independently of other ministers, receiving it directly from the Lord. 
(Nonetheless, Wigglesworth DID encounter the Goodwins before the inception of their ministry, so this gift could have been conferred/ deposited, at least indirectly. "Wigglesworth looked directly at J.R. Goodwin & said, 'You're called to the ministry.' Brother Goodwin replied, 'I know it.  I'm making preparations for it now.'
Wigglesworth said, 'OK,' & moved to the next people in line.") 
Sister Goodwin told many times the story of how she & her husband were led supernaturally to attend an Assemblies of God church.  In the middle of the night, an angel smote the bottom of her feet, waking her up.
He smote her feet again, & pulled her feet in the direction of a particular Spirit-filled church.
She & Brother Goodwin believed this was a direction from the Lord that they were to go to that church.
At this church, Brother & Sister Goodwin were filled with the (Holy) Spirit & spoke in tongues.  ...
At the end of our visit, Sister Goodwin laid her hands on me & prayed for me (Dr. Stanley Horton).
She asked the Lord to use me in spiritual gifts. I took my leave of her...
Approximately 4 months later on August 1, 1989, the Lord answered her prayer...
I stepped up onto the sidewalk, and was instantly caught up in a vision. I saw my life up to that point.
I knew God was imparting something to me in that vision.  (I tell the account at length elsewhere).
A few seconds later when I came out of the vision, I entered my home...
Words in other tongues began flowing out of my mouth.
I had spoken & prayed in tongues for 8 years previous to that day. But this was not my prayer language.
I knew this was a message in tongues that was to be interpreted. The second I finished speaking out the message in tongues of about a sentence or 2 in length, immediately I spoke out the interpretation.
Also, within the first 3-4 messages in tongues, I found my hands wanting to move in certain directions & communicate also through gestures.  It was all automatic & flowed smoothly.
In the 20 years since that day, I have given thousands of messages in tongues & interpreted them. 
Some of the messages had gestures & actions that seemed to naturally flow along with the message.
Some had no gestures or movements. 
It is hard for me to put into words what this process feels like as the Holy Spirit is flowing through me.
It frequently comes very suddenly with me sensing the presence of the message in tongues in my spirit for only a second or 2 before I yield to the Holy Spirit & give it. I have the ability to give the message, or to withhold it.
I usually go ahead & give it, unless my giving of a message in tongues would be disruptive or would interfere with the flow of the service. In such cases, I hold the message in tongues until an appropriate opportunity presents itself.  If no such opportunity comes, the message in tongues seems to fade from my spirit within an hour or so...
I saw a vision of a woman making a meal for her husband. The husband took the meal & walked off & left her standing there.  The Lord asked me, 'If you saw this, would you praise it Would this be right in your eyes?'
I replied, 'No, Lord! This would be an awful thing.' He answered back to me, 'This is exactly what My people are doing to Me.  They take My spiritual gifts, go off by themselves & think they can operate My gifts without Me.'
Grief came into my spirit. I knew the Lord was showing me this because He wanted to give it out as a prophetic parable through me...We rode to the service in silence.  I knew that I needed to stay focused on what the Lord wanted to do in the service so that I didn’t lose the anointing."

(Deliberate praying in tongues takes focus/determination in order for the human spirit to overrule the soul/mind/ emotions/will/human-nature/flesh, just like fasting or praying, especially for extended periods/minutes/hours/days. Persistence brings supremacy of the Holy Spirit over the wiles of the evil spirit in our lives, especially as tongues/ fasting/ prayer becomes a lifestyle.  We break through that hymen/veil/into a holier place. 
Bottom line - Do NOT quit, nor be discouraged; instead be like the turtle who persists past the rabbit & wins, accomplishes what God had in mind, rather than what the enemy had in mind.)

Yes, Andrew recognizes exceeding value/necissity of Holy Spirit baptism with speaking in tongues, but he also recognizes our need to fill up with & speak out God's scripture to produce effectual power in our lives & ministry.

Zadai, Kevin edited

KEVIN: He said, "If you will pray in the spirit (tongues) & bring out the depths & the mysteries of God out into this realm," that the spiritual realm would become so close to me that I'd begin to operate in the spiritual realm here on earth.
SID: The council room in heaven. Explain.

I was surprised at how intricate & organized heaven is. I was really intrigued by God's order.
He has a government. It's called the Kingdom of God. He has books written about every individual person available to the angels that are assigned to each person. Those angels look at those books. 
They're briefed. Decisions are made on who would influence of group of people.  Those angels go to work in bringing the truth to those people & helping them to get other people involved & walking in the spirit with God...
The most serious asset or liability that we have is our own will.
I know that God loves us, but He has to get that across to us.  We have to have revelation from the Spirit of God. 
Many people don't have the revelation of God's love, concern or plan for us.  These books are full of pages that Jesus said some of them will never be opened, because people don't yield to the Spirit & don't give their will over.
There is a walking in the spirit that requires you to hand your life over & carry your own cross.
Jesus wanted everyone to know that there is power available, but it's going to be by you losing & Him gaining you.

Is Jesus sad that most believers have all these wonderful, amazing exploits that God has for them. 
It's all written. He's doing everything He can to get you to do it, & you're not doing it.

He said, "You've got to teach people to receive from Me. I want to bless themI want to bless them"...
The turning over of your will to the Almighty God (is part of receiving His blessing)...
Instantly He said, "I'm going to show you how powerful your prayers are, Kevin."
He took me.  We went to a place in the United States that I recognized as New Mexico.
I was standing on this mountain right above the missile range out there, the test facility.
I fly over it a lot...He said, "Start praying, Kevin, in the spirit (tongues)"...

I yielded & started praying in the spirit.  As I did, He pointed & said, "Now watch"...
I saw the explosion. It looked like the atomic bomb detonation that had gone off in the 40s.
It started to explode.  This big plume went straight up into the air.  It was all red & powerful. 
The Lord said, "Most Christians are looking for the spectacular.
They look at this cloud, but the supernatural is the shock wave that's traveling along the ground

I saw this shock wave go out about 30 miles.  It was knocking everything over. 
He said, "See, Kevin, when you pray (especially in tongues) your prayers are effective & it's moving mountains out of the way.  You should never give up. You should always pray"
I realize that people were looking for a sign of some sort, a manifestation that it was working.
I, also, knew that there was demonic activity that would stop people from praying. 
They would actually feel depressed. 
It would not even be them (but rather spiritual, relational or nutritional interference).
They would have
chemical imbalances in their body, but it was from the outside (spiritual oppression or environmental pollution). 
They were being influenced (by the medical establishment & demons) to think that there was a (medical or emotional) problem.  They would stop praying. 
There were things (distractions/discouragements) that would happen that would stop them from praying.
The Lord said, "
You should never give up praying, because (so) you will get your answer"...


1st God the Father has flesh/Christ/the Word & a spirit, the Holy Spirit. His bride the church/individuals likewise is dead like a beloved mate/corpse in the casket, unless she has life/blood/spirit surging through her flesh on earth. 
That is why speaking daily in tongues seems to be so important.  It is His breath surging through our lungs & out our mouths.  Sort of like the Bible being a dead man without a living Spirit.  Both the Bible & individuals are dead flesh without His life/Spirit surging through us.  To bless us individually but also to bless others...
2nd In this generation many respected main line fundamentalist churches have forbidden & warned their members not to speak in tongues or be associated with those who do, because of danger of being contaminated by Satan who can speak in tongues. 
Yes, Satan & his kingdom can speak in tongues, but such is only mimicking of what the Holy Spirit does in & through His kingdom kids.  Satan is a copy cat.  Never let fear, ignorance, tradition, or church dogma be your boss; you may lose out on what Father God has given you an an inheritance in Jesus Christ. 
Be sure to have read the Bible from beginning to end, so that you will know what is in the "will" of Jesus Christ. 
Do not be ignorant of what He has left you.  Claim your inheritance...
3rd Remember, God's actions (in large part) are through speech. 
God created the world and it's contents + occupants through speech.  After we are (united to/with) born-again of His Spirit & have been prayed over/asked for & received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit bubbles up/gives us unction, to express His nature through our mouths via speech or song. 
It is His Holy Spirit inside of us dancing/trying to flow through us/ springing up as living water. 
God via His Holy Spirit wants in each generation to continue to create/sing/speak through us. 
Let us allow Him to daily do His work in and through us, especially via speaking (praying/singing) in tongues.  Our spirit man is a replica of the human man.  Allow it to function, with God being the puppeteer, even of our mouths, voices, & words. God can and will do through us what He did in & with Jesus when He was on the earth. 
Jesus, God's Word/flesh, helped Father God to create the world.  Likewise, we flesh, will speak for God now while we are alive, as Christ did when He walked the earth in the garment of flesh. 
That is, He will speak through us, if we allow Him to do so, in each generation.  WOW. 
4th Each of us, each piece of creation, has a piece of God's DNA in us.  It yearns to express itself. 
It years to reunite with God.  It is our spiritual instinct.  He is our spiritual root/origin. 
What all of humanity is looking for is not self, but rather Papa God.
5th Our true identity/genealogy goes back to Father God.  Our inner man cries out to Him.
6th Another CAUTION.  Some incorrectly teach that because ancient Hebrew is God's original tongue, we also need to speak Hebrew to improve our relationship with Him.  Note that both Jesus & His disciples spoke that language, but did not walk in the full liberty & calling of God until the baptism of the Holy Spirit came with tongues, an unknown &/or heavenly language.  (Be reminded that Jesus and nothing else qualifies us. 
Yes we can mature, evict inner demons, etc, but our being born into and remaining in His kingdom is 24/7. 
Jesus the qualifier, not self.  If God wants or prefers that we converse in Hebrew or other "original/native" language, then it is He who will enable/facilitate when we ask Him.)
7th Until God shows us differently we do have the indwelling Holy Spirit via the baptism of the Holy Spirit, typically a 2nd sacrament via the laying on of hands. 
Regardless of the method of receipt, we can PRACTICE speaking in an unknown language, in same manner a toddler would babble, but improving with practice, not being ashamed of "baby talk".
Tracy Cooke admonishes us to pray 1 hour in tongues.

Who Switched off My Brain
book &/or DVD - 7/9/2010 - Friday's (last broadcast of week) shares medical benefits (to brain) from praying in tongues. 2013

Peterson, Dr. Carl - - "Dr. Carl Peterson of O.R.U. in Tulsa, Oklahoma is a brain specialist and was doing research on the relationship between the brain and praying or speaking in tongues. Some amazing things were discovered.  Through research and testing, Dr. Peterson found that as we pray in the Spirit or worship in the Spirit (our heavenly language) there is activity that begins in the brain. As we engage in our heavenly language, the brain releases 2 chemical secretions that are directed into our immune systems giving a 35-40% boost in the immune system. This promotes healing within our bodies. Amazingly, this secretion is triggered from a part of the brain that has no other apparent activity in humans & we don't use it.
t is only activated by our Spirit-led prayer & Worship."
by Daily Golden Footprints
Peterson, Carl R - Christian pyschiatrist says,  "Those who speak in tongues for extended periods of time benefit from a release of brain hormones, which in turn boosts the body's general immunity." - - 2011 - SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND THE BRAIN - Dr. Peterson, Oral Roberts University brain surgeon, ran a test which proved that when speaking in tongues, a part of the brain (1) Lights up that does NOT do so at any other time & (2) releases 2 chemicals that boost the immune system. 
& DAILY/DRUDGE REPORT that now there is neuroscience  to back up the passionate, rhythmic language of speaking (praying) in tongues.
Researchers at the university if Pennsylvania took brain images of 5 women while theyspoke in tongues & found that their frontal lobes  (the thinking willful part of the brain through which people control what they do) were relatively quiet, as were the language centers.  Regions involved in maintaining self-conscousness were active. 
The women were not in blind trances.  It was unclear which region was was driving the behavior. 
1 issue of the Journal of Psychiarty Research notes that recent neuroimages (taken during this spoken religious practice of speaking in unknown tongues) pinpoint the most active areas of the brain.
"The images supported people's interpretation of what was happening, the way they desribe it & what they believe, is that God is talking through them.”  In the study, researchers used imaing techniques to track changes in blood flow in each woman's brain in 2 conditions, once as she sang a gospel song, & again while speaking in tongues. 
By comparing the patterns, the researchers could pinpoint blood-flow peaks & valleys unique to speaking in tongues.
Contrary to what maybe a common perceiption, studies suggest that (Christian) [people who speak in tongues rarely suffer from mental problems...A recent study of nearly 1,000 evangelical Christians in England found that those who engaged in the practice (of praying in tongues) were more emotionally stable than those who did not. The new findings contrasted sharply with images taken of spiritually inspired mental states like meditation, which is often a highly focused (occult) mental exercise, activating the frontal lobes. 
Scans also showed a dip in the activity of a region called the left caudate
“The findings from the frontal lobes are very clear & make sense, but the caudate is usually active when you have positive affect, pleasure, pleasure, positive emotions," said a psychologist at the University of Virginia." 
"It's not so clear what that finding says" about speaking in tonges. 
The caudate area is also involved in motor & emotional control, so it may be that practitiloners, while mindful of their circumstances, noneless cede some control over thier bodies & emotions (to satan, for beginners). 

Matot -Vows, Oaths & Obligations - "Praying in the Spirit increases a man’s magnetic field of influence and increases your heart’s frequency. Praying in the Spirit is more than just the evidence of the Spirit, praying in tongues activates the Spirit in you.  The human body has a magnetic field & frequency.
Increase His magnification and frequency in you
; tune in & turn up the volume of His voice.
This increased sensitivity reveals heart issues when the husband (or father) is present with his wife & family.
Be sure to set aside time to be around your family, not just time for activities, but time to cultivate the relationships in your family.  Praying in the Spirit increases your intuitive sense of what is going on in the heart of your wife or daughter that needs to be tenderly addressed. Being in tune with their hearts. 
Staying close, you will be able to annul the things which may be harmful for your loved ones."  

Pentecost - Pentecost (1st fruit offering Jewish/Hebrew feast - symbolizes Jesus being the 1st of many spiritual sons; He was the Lamb sacrificed for our sins. 
Pentecost (Pesach) is also when Jesus in His absence sent His Holy Spirit to earth.) is actually a 50 day countdown from the time of sunrise on Easter Saturday (feast of unleavened bread) preceded by the crucifixion 3 days prior (Passover - The angel of death saw the blood of the Lamb & passed over the first born)...
Remember that Jewish Sabbaths begin at sundown the prior evening & end at sundown the current evening. Jesus had to be taken off the cross & placed in a tomb before sunset, the day of His death, according to Jewish law. 
He was buried (in the tomb 3 evenings) but arose after sunrise on a Sabbath.
Our observing the above time table will contribute to our receiving our baptism in the Holy Spirit, as did the disciples who waited on God as instructed by Jesus.4/4/2009...Some synagogues practice a dollar a day contribution to the poor the 50 days between the feast of unleavened bread  1st fruits. 
As we repent [remove all leaven (sin) just prior to Passover], tithe & pray each of these days, we can anticipate the great forthcoming blessing from Father God (with the same eagerness as an approaching arrival of a new-born baby after 9 months or a wedding feast after the engagement has been announced).

Tongues Go to the Place Where God Is

Jesus Appears to a Frightened Little Girl
"I recently heard a marvelous testimony of a mother in Russia during the communist era.
This testimony provides a modern-day example of the spiritual blessings that can be accessed by getting over into the realm of God's Spirit through prayer.  This mother was a devout Christian who refused to embrace communism. Because of this, the communist government took her children from her & put them in an orphanage. Somehow the mother found out where the children were taken & tried to visit them there.
But when the government officials found out she knew where her children were, they transferred the children to another orphanage in an unknown location. Now this poor mother couldn't see her children at all. 
She didn't know where they were. So she did the only thing she knew how to do in this terrible situation. 
She got before the throne of grace & she prayed
As the mother continued to pray for her children, at times she would see her little 3-year-old daughter in the spirit (a vision)...
Today this daughter says she can't remember ever hearing the name of Jesus before she was taken to the orphanage. You see, her mother wasn't able to take her children to church in her early years.
Parents who were caught taking their children to church got in terrible trouble with the communist government...
Years passed, & the mother's children still lived in the orphanage. But God was at work in ways this mother couldn't know of, especially in the life of the little daughter she kept seeing in the spirit realm.
When this daughter was about 7 years old, she & another little boy in the orphanage decided they were going to escape, so they took off running down the hall. A guard saw them & screamed at them to stop.
The little boy stopped, but when the terrorized girl kept running, the guard raised his gun & shot her in the arm.
The little girl was taken to a hospital for surgery on her injured arm.
As she lay in her hospital bed, Jesus suddenly appeared to her...'Who are you?' she asked in fear. He replied, 'I am Jesus. I've come to take care of you. I will take care of you all your days.' With that, He disappeared. 
The little girl came through her surgery fine and returned to the orphanage. Then some friends of ours, a Pentecostal couple, recently adopted this Russian girl & brought her to the United States.
They are now in the process of helping their adopted daughter find her biological mother.
Soon after the young girl arrived in the United States, her adoptive parents took her to their church.
When the congregation began singing about Jesus, she asked them, 'Who is this Jesus?
I met Him when I was 7 years old, but I've never known anything about Him...
I want to meet your Jesus, whoever He is, because He came to me when I was 7.' 
That little girl met Jesus in a vision because her mother diligently prayed in the spirit
(in tongues) for her. Only God knows what other miracles have occurred in the rest of the children's lives as a result of her faithful prayers... I'll tell you what; when you get over in the spirit, things happen.  Supernatural answers are brought into this natural realm, bringing victory & deliverance in even the most difficult of situations.
I could tell you story after story of situations that were changed because of Christians who knew how to get over in the spirit & find the answer they needed.
For every problem or need that arises, there is absolutely no substitute for finding the place called in the spirit.

Demonic Tongue

Sumrall, Lester - Witch Doctor - - pg 41 Demon Language - Demons can speak in many languages through an individual with or without the individual's comprehension of what he/she is speaking. 

Always Test Each Spirit

Allen, Bruce - - Perth, Australia - Demonic Tongues - "One day in Sunday service he got up from the back of the church and began to walk down the isle & curse the pastor in fluent German, a language he had never learned.
The pastor took authority over that (evil) spirit, saying, 'What’s your name' & 'You speak in English'.
The spirit said, 'I’m one of the 6000 demons who lived in Hitler.' 
They were all there; they (the church) had to cast the legion out.  Here’s what happened. 
During High School as they began to study the history or WWII That young man began to study the life of Adolph Hitler & read his writings, really became transfixed by that man.
Put up a huge poster in his bedroom & just would gaze at that, worship & adore, till finally what he was focused on, he connected with.  When connections came, snap. Activation. He became possessed.
That’s why the Bible talks so often about being careful about what you put your eyes on, what you listen to & what you speak.  Because what you behold you become.
That’s why Job made a covenant with his eyes, he wasn’t going to look at the wrong thing. 
This is (scriptural) truth."
Allen, Bruce - Praying in Tongues -

Bubeck, Mark I. - The Adversary - -
Chapter 2 Warfare with the Flesh - After asking, "believe you are filled (Romans 14:23).  Act by faith & NOT by feeling.  Take God at His Word" (& NOT what others tell you, such as you must speak in tongues. 
If you do speak in tongues, test each spirit, to weed out any demonic infiltration, due to our wish for an "experience" rather than for an intimate relationship with the Trinity).

McGraw, Gerald - Midnight Cry Ministry Tongues Should Be Tested -
In our prayer session the spirit providing this gift was exposed as a demon. A missionary participating as an intercessor inquired if it would be possible to have the interpretation of the words the demon kept the counselee speaking. When the chairman commanded the tongues demon to interpret the line, the response was:
'I hate you, hate you, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.' The victim was as shocked as the rest of us."
The Supernatural Can Be Tested
"Many charismatics insist that everyone filled with the Holy Spirit will speak in tongues. 
If this is the only way to know certainly one has been filled, no wonder people become desperate for this "evidence."
1 young man lay on the ground for hours earnestly pleading for tongues. In another instance the subject had been urged by charismatic tutors to keep repeating the word "Hallelujah" until he could break out in tongues.
In both cases the subjects did acquire the coveted ability.
Later testing, however, revealed that in each case a demon had entered the victim & had imparted the glossolalia.  In the latter case the tongues demon was named Hallelujah."
Testing Tongues "If a tongues gift is being supplied by 1 or more demons, Scripture gives full authority to cast them out (Mark 16:17).
The victim 1st should verbally renounce ground given to Satan through practicing a false tongue & should declare his rejection of spirits inspiring a satanic gift. The leader should order the demons to depart to the abyss (cp. Luke 8:29, 31; Revelation 9:1-3) & should retest to make certain they have actually departed.
In all of this God can grant "the power to discriminate between the true Spirit & false spirits"
(I Corinthians 12:10, Williams)."

False spirits invade the church - KUNDALINI WARNING - Andrew Strom -#
(We do
NOT agree with this video; nonetheless, it is a good reminder to test EVERY spirit, especially those which would attempt to copy God's Holy Spirit.  Additionally do a routine self-exorcism after personal or group ministry. 
It is a good practice not to allow strangers to lay hands on oneself. 
Additionally, it is best to spiritually prepare the place & one self PRIOR to + after ministry.)

Interpretation of Tongues

Wommack, Andrew 6/25/2013 - audio @ Spirit Soul Body
Wommack, Andrew  TV via Windows Media -
Mind of Christ resides in our born-again baptized human spirit. 
We need to pray in tongues & then request His revelation/interpretation/answer.

Satan attempts to copy whatever God does to kidnap His glory.

Singing in Tongues

Speaking/Preaching in Unlearned Languages/Tongues

Barth, Leonard by Hall, Franklin - Holy Spirit Gifting of Speaking in Unlearned Langues for Evangelism - - "God said, 'If I would be faithful in fasting & praying, He would raise up workers all over the world in their own tongues.'
He also gave me Mark 10:29-30 as a call to travel & do exploits in His name.  I was shown many other things as I started my life with fastings & praying like Paul. Many times my fastings were from 3 days to a week & longer.
In some of my fasts the Lord gave me much revelation concerning the time we live.
In the beginning of my Christian experience, while on a 2-weeks’ fast, I cried & prayed until Jesus became so real that 1 night He appeared in my room.  The room was all lighted up, brighter than the sun.
Jesus stood at the foot of my bed, & around Him was a light much brighter than the sun.
This great experience was very impressive & for a long time I seemed to be walking on air.
Shortly after that, while fasting 5 days, the Lord filled me with a peculiar experience.
A missionary from Rome told me that I was speaking a message, glorifying & praising the Lord in his Italian language.  Yet I had never spoken Italian before. It must have been the Holy Spirit talking. 
The missionary interpreted what I was saying into English."

This guy speaks 14 languages, most of which he received supernaturally.
He’s been a part of at least 5 resurrections from the dead, including 1 person who had been dead for 4 days."

Supernatural Playing an Instrument

Mills, Joshua - 7/27/2015
from video
The piano teacher told my mother to stop wasting her money. She said, "Don't bring Joshua back.
He will never, ever learn how to play piano." That's what she told my mother…

I end up sitting at the piano & the Holy Spirit begins to teach me.  The Holy Spirit begins to train me.  The Holy Spirit begins instructing me.
The Bible says, "The Holy Spirit will teach you in all things." That means all things…

Typing in Tongues ?

Bynum, Juanita - -

Dr. Bern Zumpano, prior Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
& Professor of Neurosurgery (retired),
Oral Roberts University School of Medicine, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - 1999 -  

"Praying in "tongues" comes from the Holy Spirit through the Baptism-in-the Holy Spirit.  It must be asked for.
(Lk. 11: 10- 13). A Christian believer must first be born-again and seek to obtain the Holy Spirit baptism, believing, without doubt, that the Holy Spirit will give the real thing, & that he/she will not receive a counterfeit.
 The believer must EXPECT to receive it, by ASKING & by FAITH, in Jesus’ Name. According to the Book of Acts, the Holy Spirit Baptism was IMPARTED to believers by those who already had it, through the laying-on-of-hands.
The 9-gifts of the Holy Spirit are received (I Cor. 12), 1 of which is a heavenly language called 'tongues'...
There are 2 types of 'tongues'. 'Gift of tongues' manifests only in the congregation or assembly of the brethren.  Usually, when it manifests, the interpretation of what is being said will be placed on the heart of another believer who is present, or the person speaking will interpret. Another type, called praying-in-the-Spirit, or "personal tongues", is for private use & personal prayer. The language of 'tongues' is fluent, not repetitive.
It is different for every person, & frequently varies in the same person. The scripture says that you will speak in 'divers' (various) tongues...In spiritual warfare, the importance of tongues cannot be emphasized enough.
In battling the enemy, as in deliverance, if you do not know how to proceed further in the circumstance or situation, go immediately into "tongues’. 'TONGUES' ALWAYS BRINGS REVELATION FROM HOLY SPIRIT.
Yield to Holy Spirit & pray it out in 'tongues'...If you do not speak in 'tongues', use PRAISE, which also brings revelation. Jesus inhabits the praise, the scripture says. When we pray in "tongues", we do the speaking, that is, we make the sounds & by a yielding trust (faith), the Holy Spirit gives the meaning. (Ro.8:26, 27)
Holy Spirit prays in you & through you.  That is important to realize.
You are a yielded, empty, vessel. You mind is active. You are submitted to Him & trusting.
'Tongues' then manifests...
Why are "tongues" so important as a form of prayer? Here are 5 reasons that every believer should know:
1. 'Tongues' brings revelation from the Holy Spirit.
2.  Through 'tongues' the Holy Spirit prays in you & through you, & prays a PERFECT prayer.
3.  By letting Holy Spirit pray 'tongues' through you, Holy Spirit can get God’s perfect Will for your situation or circumstance.
4.  Holy Spirit uses 'tongues' to get the 'answer' from the Lord quicker than you can.
5.  Satan cannot understand 'tongues'.
Experience has also shown that the use of 'tongues' hastens deliverance. Indeed. we have yielded to Holy Spirit to perform complete deliverance in children solely through the use of "tongues". It is less frightening to them than to address demonic spirits in our natural language. Infants with "sleep" disturbance or other behavioral problems for which there is no natural or medical explanation, can be delivered from demonic oppression or harassment through the laying-ion-of-hands & praying simultaneously in 'tongues' while they are sleeping."

Vawser, Lana -
Vawser, Lana -
LANA: I was sitting in my office in the morning.
I had the same question, "Lord, what's on your heart today?"
All of a sudden, I hear this audible voice, "Pick up your pen & write."
I picked up my pen.  All of a sudden the power of God hit my hand.
It felt like electricity was going through every part of my body.
My hands started to write at 1,000 miles an hour.
I remember watching my hand, thinking, "I can't write this fast
LANA: So much of what was contained within this letter from God was all these promises of Scripture.
It wasn't something I sat there going, "Okay , the Bible says," & I wrote it. 
It was this supernatural flow of just absolute beautiful truth from God, about identity, about destiny & about His nature.
LANA: Here I am, looking at this letter, thinking, "Thank you, Jesus. I'm going to hold this forever.
This is my letter." The voice comes again & says, "Lana, pick up that letter. 
Take it next door to the pastor." Now, you have to understand the context is that I was in a beautiful church, they were helping me understand the word of God. They were training me in leadership, but they weren't teaching on the prophetic, & understanding the voice of God in these ways.
LANA: I'm thinking, "God, how am I going to pick up this letter, go & deliver it? What do I say?"
I had a moment, & this moment was, "Am I going to sit here & not obey God, or am I going to obey God & maybe look silly?"  I thought, "You know what? I'm okay with looking silly."

Writing in Tongues

Martin, David - Six Page Article by David Maritn on the Mountaintop and the Shining Ones Broken Arrow, Oklahoma - -
"He did say, 'Some of their ways are a bit different.
As an example, they write in tongues the same way we speak in tongues.'” 
"In the midst of this spiritual ecstasy, 2 ladies came up to the table in front of me & start writing in the spirit.
It was more than I could handle. I literally freaked out.  I went into a panic intercession, crying out to God for fear that some demonic entity was at work & might jump onto me. I was in such a state of concern that the tears were streaming down my cheeks.  Then God spoke saying, 'It is of Me, do not fear.' 
At the same time He imparted the greatest measure of peace imaginable." 
[Now we can begin to understand how the scribes/rabbis were able to correctly without error write holy scripture...
Yes, there are counterfeit tongues, including writing under "the (evil) influence".]

There is NO Junior or Senior Holy Spirit
He is an equal opportunity Spirit.

Hickey, Marilyn & Sarah - Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Part 1 + Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Part 2 + Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Part 3 + Baptism of the Holy Spirit - Part 4 Sarah, age 4, announced to her mom Marilyn that she would be speaking in tongues when she woke up from her nap.

Towe, Andrew @ Microsoft Word - Sid Roth 1078 Towe.docx Transcript 12/6/2020 - Edited Excerpt -
ANDREW: I was 4 years old, my mother, my sister & I were driving on vacation.
At those days, we listened to cassettes.
So I was listening to a cassette of a worship song & something came over me. I remember getting chills.
I asked my mother, “Can we play that song again?” She rewound the song & played it again.
As she did, I began to be filled with the Holy Ghost & began to speak with other tongues.
Now, thank God I had parents that encouraged me in this.
See, I think sometimes we experience the glory of God & people may not understand what they’re experiencing.
But she said, “Son, that’s the glory of God.” So after that experience, I continued. I started prayer meetings in my room. I’ve always loved music, so I would start singing at the top of my lungs in worship to the Lord...
ANDREW: We, me & Holy Ghost, would start singing every Christian song that I knew in were worship to Him.
Then I began praying.  It was really during those times that the Holy Spirit birthed a hunger for God.
I experienced something real that is carrying me through today. The same God.
We don’t receive a junior Holy Ghost
.  Children receive the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead.
He’s carried me through to today & still operating in my life.
It was really during those times that prayer, intercession & the hunger for the glory of God was birthed in me...
SID: Speaking of playtime, Jesus said, you have to be like a little child to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
You started at 4. Your daughter didn’t start till 5. At 5 was she watching her father?
ANDREW: Yes. I have a little room over my garage I call my upper room. I was up there praying as I normally do.
I hear the little door creaking open. My 1st reaction was to tell Juliana, “Go back downstairs. 
Daddy will be down in a minute.
We’ll play together.” However, in this moment I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Invite her to come into the prayer room with you. She needs see her father pray.”
So I said, “Juliana, why don’t you come in & pray with me?” I’ll never forget.
I just shared a picture on my Facebook of her, because I got a picture of it. I love that. But she had a little plastic crown on her head. She came in her pajamas & brought a little drum that someone had given her.
So we’re worshiping the Lord. 
She is playing the drum. Suddenly, the  wave, the glory of God just came & sat in the room.
I was weeping, so I laid down in the presence of God. I’m laying there praying. 
She comes, lays beside me & begins to weep. At 1st I thought, “How cute. She’s imitating me.”
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “No, I want to do something in her today.
I want to fill her with the Holy Spirit.” He said, “I want you to lay hands on her. Explain to her what is happening, but I’m going to move in her today.” So I took my hands & said, “Juliana, the Holy Spirit wants to fill you today.
He wants to give you your prayer language.”
It was the most beautiful experience that the Lord had given me ever in my history of ministry, because I laid hands on her that day.  As I began to pray with her, she got a fluent prayer language & began to pray in the Holy Ghost.  That day we stayed hours in His presence.  She’s never been the same again.

Trachsel, Jean Luc @ Watch or Listen 7/10-16/2023 RECOMMENDED - His ancestors had pastored. 
At 5 he invited Jesus to be his Messiah.  At 6 his mom invited him to have Jesus baptize him with the Holy Spirit.
At 16 he consecrated himself to partnering with the Trinity & invited Holy Spirit to be his best friend.
