Types of Tongues Sermon - Pastor Steve Winter

 These are my notes that I used to preach tonight's (12/14/2000)
sermon regarding the different types of tongues in the Bible.
I have uploaded it to http://www.onenessapostolic.org/audio

IT IS ESSENTIAL to understand that there are TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
KINDS OF TONGUES in the Bible. #1: Other Tongues and #2: The Gift of
Tongues (Unknown tongues).

When the 120 in the upper room were filled with the Holy Ghost they
spoke in other tongues(#1).

Acts 1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the
disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an
hundred and twenty,)

Other tongues(#1) WAS UNDERSTOOD by men

Acts 2:5 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.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,
Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

Acts 2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues
the wonderful works of God.

In I Cor 14:2 however it says that when a man speaks in "unknown
tongues (#2)" that NO MAN UNDERSTANDS him.

1 Corinthians 14:2 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.

In I Cor 12: 29,30 Paul is speaking concerning "the Gift of Tongues(
unknown tongues #2)" when he asks "Do all speak with tongues(#2)?",
the group that he was addressing all had spoken in "other tongues
(#1)" when they had received the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all
teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all
interpret?

1 Corinthians 12:4 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.

Though ALL that receive the Holy Ghost DO SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES
(#1). Of these not everyone will be used in the "Gift of Tongues
(#2)". Every new-testament Christian will speak in "other tongues
(#1)", but every Christian will not be used in the "Gift of tongues
(#2)"

Other tongues(#1) is, however, only the initial evidence that a
person has been "reborn of the Spirit". It is not an end unto itself,
but rather the beginning of a Christian life that should go "on to
perfection" and manifest the full "fruit of the Spirit" in due
season. Also essential is repentance from sin and baptism
in water in the NAME of Jesus.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every
one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and
ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Everyone in the new testament (including Mary the mother of
Jesus) spoke in "other tongues(#1)" when they received the Holy Ghost.

Acts 1:12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called
Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room,
where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and
Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and
Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.
14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication,
with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples,
and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and
twenty,)

So we see that Mary, the mother of Jesus was among the 120 in the
Upper Room. Then we see that they were ALL filled with the Holy
Ghost and began to speak with other tongues.

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were
all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty
wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and
it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak
with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Remember that the only way that the Apostles knew that Gentiles
had received the same Holy Ghost that they had was because they
heard them speak in tongues.

Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were
astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles
also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then
answered Peter,
47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized,
which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were
all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty
wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and
it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak
with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of
repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him
which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord
Jesus.
6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on
them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Those who don't believe in Jesus Name water baptism and speaking in
other tongues don't really believe the Bible at all and are not a
part of the religion of the Bible.
