Sample text

To those who are wandering in a religious wilderness full of drought and barrenness He promises: ”I will make the wilderness a pool of water” (Isaiah 41:18) and ”streams in the desert” (Isaiah 35:6). There is ''fullness of joy” in His presence (Psalm 16:11). The baptism with the Holy Spirit provides the deep inner release of the spirit of man into the Spirit of God. Limitless discourse in the language of the Spirit fulfills the spiritual longing for communication with God. Praying in the Holy Ghost on a regular basis enables a believer to be edified and built up where it counts the most—in the spirit realm.

As we previously noted these occurrences are mentioned in 2:4; 10:46; 19:6). Because we are given three plain witnesses (as well as the somewhat obscure witness in chapter eight) concerning speaking with other tongues in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, we are safe to conclude it is scriptural to teach people they will speak in other tongues when the Holy Ghost comes upon them. This answer would not be complete without noticing the other two places where the baptism in the Holy Spirit may be inferred as having possibly occurred.

God's Word gives us the perfect balance. " The Bible is clear: the disciples began to speak with other tongues! But how did they do it? " This is the instruction many in the charismatic realm have received. I know of actual instances where ministers have said, "When I lay hands on you the Holy Spirit will come upon you. I will start speaking in tongues and you try to say the same things I say. ” Peter and John did not do that in Samaria; nor did Paul ask them to mimic him at Ephesus. " How we have cheapened the priceless gift!
