Devo Why Tongues Part 13
Acts 2:1-4 (NIV)
The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost
2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
There are five incidences of people receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. We will look at all of them over the next lessons. Here we clearly see that when they were filled they spoke in tongues as the Spirit enabled them. I try to make clear it was as the Spirit enabled them, because I have seen people try to teach people tongues. This is pure hogwash, lol. The Spirit has to enable you to speak in tongues, it is not learned by man. What I am getting at though is Tongues is the evidence and in fact a necessary part of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
