Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

I agree that the sound in this passage is of someone being born of the spirit. However, I am not convinced that it has to be speaking in another language, or tongues, as there are also so many...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

The difference, seems to be that the spirit of Jesus, who was raised from the dead, comes to dwell in the heart of people now. But the spirit of the Lord was already at work within the hearts and...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

Covey,

Thank you for your excellent response. I'm sorry I've taken a while to get back to you. I've had computer issues the last few days.

I appreciated your link to the blueletterbible. I...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

You've heard the sound of the wind?

You are very welcome :)



Have you heard that wind, the sound of the spirit from heaven? I'm curious.

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

See my post above regarding the wind. The sound concept having to be tongues does not hold up, because in both instances where we find the word "sound" (John 3:8, Acts 2:2), we see that indeed...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

In both these two passages in question, the word sound was associated with wind. Indeed there was a noise from heaven, the sound of a rushing mighty wind, and Jesus mentioned the same thing in John...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

Going back to Mark 16:16-18, Jesus plainly states that believing/baptism = salvation.

17 And these...

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

Take your heavy stick that you are using to beat around with, and lay it down, and actually discuss the issue instead of condemn. It is easier to condemn than to discuss, by far.

He didn't do a good job of quoting, Bro. GS. His attack was pointed at my words, not so much yours, I think. You have a much kinder spirit than he does though, and I appreciate that so much in you....

Yes. They have exhibited the fruit of the spirit mightily in their lives, as well as signs and wonders too. But have never spoken in tongues.

Re: Receiving The Holy Spirit & Speaking In Tongue

The word "full" is just a term that best describes the HG outpouring that we find all throughout scripture, that so far in this discussion, I have not seen anyone address.
