1. Preaching (?) in unlearned languages (Acts 2:5-6): “Godly Jews from many nations . . . . were bewildered to hear their own languages being spoken by the believers.” Also: 1 Cor. 14:22: “Speaking in tongues is a sign, not for believers, but for unbelievers.” (Isa. 28:11-12)
Also 1 Cor. 14:2: “For if your gift is the ability to speak in tongues, you will be talking to God but not to people, since they won’t be able to understand you. You will be speaking by the power of the Holy Spirit, but it will all be mysterious.”
1. Rapturous joy and love
2. Heightened sensitivity to the promptings of the HS in personal prayer, corporate worship, and ministry.
3. The prerequisite to be a channelof the charismatic gifts (1 Cor. 12:7-11)
4. Invigorated boldness to witness for Christ
5. Control of the “unruly member”—the tongue (Jas. 3:8-10)
6. Ability to cast out demons
