Genuine Infilling


From Pastor’s Desk:

Acts 2:4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

***

Key phrase here is “as the Spirit enabled them.” If you have “learned” a language that you calling “tongues” by repeating after someone else, I have sad news for you. The baptism in, or infilling of, the Holy Spirit, as Pentecostal believe, is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in tongues, or a heavenly language.

The point is that tongues come with the infilling of the Holy Spirit and not the other way around. A genuine experience of speaking in tongues is given by the Holy Spirit and Him alone. If prompted by anything else or anyone else, there has not been an infilling.
