True Benefits of speaking in Tongues
"I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all�
(1 Cor. 14:18)
Four Fold use of Tongues!
There are at least four uses or purposes of unknown tongues,
according to the New Testament: (1) as the initial evidence of the
baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6); (2) as a gift to
edify the church when the tongues are interpreted (1 Corinthians
12:10); (3) as a sign for unbelievers that they might believe (1
Corinthians 14:22); and (4) as a God-given provision for effective
prayer and praise (1 Corinthians 14:2, 14). In all these cases,
tongues is the same in essence, but different in purpose. The
misunderstanding concerning these distinctive uses and purposes has
brought great confusion among Christians.
Personal Tongue: When a believer exercises the gift of tongues, it is
not his soul or his intellect that is praying. Instead, it is his
spirit that speaks to God not in a language that is known to his
intellect, but in a heavenly language inspired by the Holy Spirit.

10 Benefits to Speaking in Tongues
1. First Corinthians 14:4 says, �He that speaketh in an unknown
tongue edifieth (Charges) himself . . . .� Therefore, speaking in
tongues is a means of spiritual edification or building up.
In other words, when a person prays in the Holy Spirit, he charges
himself up. He builds himself up like a battery that is charged or
2. Help in prayer!
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know
what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us
with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts
knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the
saints in accordance with God's will. (Romans 8:26-27) You know you
are praying according to the will of God. The Holy Spirit "makes
intercession for the saints according to the will of God" (Rom. 8:27)

Spirit in a heavenly language that Satan does not understand. Hence,

us, "For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God �
for if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays" (1 Cor. 14:2,14, NKJV).
Praying in tongues can also be like a two-way street. When you pray in
tongues, God will often give you wisdom and insight to see better ways
of doing what you need to do.
5. Your faith is stimulated. Jude explained it best: "But you,
beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in

doubt or unbelief, draw apart and speak in tongues, and your faith
will be stimulated.

Our spirit language enables us to live in the Spirit, walk in the
Spirit, be led of the Spirit, have the fruit of the Spirit, manifest
the gifts of the Spirit and go from glory to glory until we are
transformed into His same image (Gal. 5:22-25; Rom. 8:14; 1 Cor.
12:7-11; 14:15; Eph. 5:18; Acts 19:2; 2 Cor. 3:18).

and mature in us. Praying in tongues helps us fulfill God's

of the indwelling Presence of the Holy Ghost every day, that is bound
to affect the way you think and live.
