Sermon on the Gift of Tongues.
This recording missed the first 2 points of repentance mistakes. Making repentance too general and applying it to someone else more than yourself.
“Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn—for he has done it” (Psalm 22:30,31).
“Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come” (Psalm 71:18).
“…which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children…They would not be like their forefathers—a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him” (Ps. 78:5,6,8).
“Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord” (Psalm 102:18).
“May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation” (Ps. 109:13).
“One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts” (Ps. 145:4).
The prophets also made sure the faithful were mindful of the generations: “Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation” (Joel 1:3).

Paul Anderson gives a message on the gifts of tongues. He gives some excellent perspective on how the gift is to be sought out (not just ‘tolerated’ – 1 Cor 14:1), God’s generosity in giving it, and how it is to be used (1 Cor 13). He also addresses some of the questions regarding tongues as well as the way it has been misused. He also explains a bit of why his theology is that if you have asked for the gift of tongues, you have it. He ends the message by giving some practical advice on how to start speaking in tongues. We have a part to play. For the most part, God won’t sovereignly move our tongue. Like the other gifts there is an aspect of faith. We have to ‘step out of the b0at’ and begin. A great message for anyone wanting to understand more about the gift of tongues or take a step out and begin walking in it.
Below are 3 articles from Paul on the gift of tongues:
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing and in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thess 5.16-18). Experience the transforming power of gratitude.
This is the final message in the series on Galatians.
Paul shares from the Epistle to the Galatians around the topic of justification by grace through faith.
Paul encourages us to embrace tension as part of our growth process as we follow Jesus. Tension isn’t a bad thing it means God is doing something.
Karen shares about their trip to Israel and then Paul shares about God’s calling and election of Israel.
Our God is humble and rewards humility with grace while resisting the proud.
We have all been wounded by the sin of our Father’s but there is healing available by the blood of Jesus through the power of the Spirit.

Jesus never sinned and because of His perfect life we now by faith have become partakers of His righteousness.
How we view ourselves matters, often we can take on the identity of a victim and be hindered from fulfilling our calling but Jesus came to change that.
