HOLDTHELINE

A study in

I Corinthians

slide2

1 Cor. 14:1-5 “Prophecy” September 1, 2013

1 Cor. 14:1-5:

Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy…

For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people for their up-building and encouragement and consolation…

The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the church. Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be built up.
