Welcome back again in the name of the Lord. I hope you are enjoying this series as it is going. What we treated in the last series was ‘Stages of tongues’, but now we want to see the levels in tongues.
There are 4 levels of tongues I’ll be unveiling to you, which include:
- Tongues as an initial evidence of Holy Ghost Baptism.
- Tongues as a Gift of the Spirit.
- Tongues in Prophecy.
- Tongues as a Ministerial Gift.
- HOLY GHOST BAPTISM
As I treated in part 2 of this series, tongues serve as the initial evidence of Holy Ghost Baptism. Tongues are like the gate that launch you into the realms of the Supernatural.
There might be a gift that becomes active in you after you are born again or before you are even born again (For instance, Cornelius could see vision even when he was yet to be a believer). However, the moment you surrender and you are baptized by the Holy Ghost, it becomese more active.
How do you even know that you’re now baptized? It’s by speaking in tongues. I gave 5 scriptural backup to support this point in the part 2 of this series. Do well to check it.
Mark 16:17 – “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.”
- SPIRITUAL GIFT
This is like the bubbling stage of tongues. At this level, your tongues diversify. Your tongues become a gift at the moment and will have the ability to diversify on it own without any stress. That’s the reason why the Paul called it DIVERSITY OF TONGUES not GIFT OF TONGUES.
1 Corinthians 12:10 – “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.”
- TONGUES IN PROPHECY
At this level, this is when you have the ability to interpret your tongues or the tongues of others. Infact according to Paul, the mathematical equation for Prophecy is:
TONGUES➕ INTERPRETATION ➡️ PROPHECY.
1 Corinthians 14:4-5 – “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 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.”
- TONGUES AS A MINISTERIAL GIFT
There are gifts that are accorded to some Evangelists as ministerial gifts and that’s why Paul was asking if all speak in tongues in the 12th chapter of his first letter to the Corinthians. All do not operate in this gift because all are not called into this office.
1 Corinthians 12:29-30 – “Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?”
