GIFTS - TONGUES - PROPHECY
1 CORINTHIANS 12:1-11 King James Bible
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
WORD OF WISDOM
WORD OF KNOWLEDGE
DISCERNING OF SPIRITS
INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES
THE VOCAL GIFTS OF TONGUES
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
Notice its Tongues, there are three kinds of Tongues. This first one in Acts 2:4-6 is Tongues that the Apostles were filled with The Holy Spirit and began to speak in Tongues that were understood by different Nationalities. That Tongue is mentioned in 1 Cor 14
1 CORINTHIANS 14:22
22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, butto them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.
The Second Tongue is mentioned as a PRAYER LANGUAGE.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:2
2 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.
The third kind of Tongues is mentioned in 1 Cor 14:26-28
1 CORINTHIANS 14:26-28
26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a
revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
This 3rd Tongue is for public use in a Church to communcate to the Body of Christ, and this Tongue must be interpreted.
And its equal to Prophecy.
INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES GIFT
The gift of the interpretation of Tongues can only be in the operation of one who is already speaking in Tongues. And number
two they must pray for the Gift.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:13
13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.
In fact the 5 Gifts so far come by PRAYER. This Gift is equal to Prophecy.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:3-5
3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
5 I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
THE GIFT OF PROPHECY
He that prophesieth speaketh unto Men to Edification and Exortation, and comfort. These three things must be in a true
prophecy from someone to be from God.
If someone gives you a Word it must Edify (Build you), Exort (Stir you) and Comfort you (Bring you Peace).
Its Gods will that all People Prophesy.
29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD's people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
1 CORINTHIANS 14:1
1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
This Gift again comes by PRAYER. Its released with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Because when one is filled with the Spirit he will Prophesy.
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.
2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:29
29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
THESE GIFTS ARE OUR CREDENTIALS AS BELIEVERS. THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE. GOD GIVES THESE GIFTS THAT YOU MIGHT PROFIT IN THE SPIRIT. THAT YOU MIGHT BE MATURED - BUILT UP IN THE SPIRIT.
