There are about 175 different Christian denominations that teach different views while they all read the same Bible. My intentions and purpose in this book is to share the benefits that I have experienced from speaking in tongues over a period of my lifetime. The following statement is a consistent truth with which no overcoming, victorious Christian would disagree:
If I let God do my arithmetic, He uses addition and multiplication. If the devil gets involved, I will see subtraction and division.
The devil delights in dividing the body of Christ. Jesus prayed, "That they all may be one even as my Father and I are one" (John 17: 11). My effort in this writing is for the purpose of showing believers in Jesus Christ the benefits of exercising the use of one of the listed gifts in 1 Corinthians 12, - that of speaking in tongues. And also to provide some thoughts that will help bring the church body into harmony on this matter.
There are some definite reasons why the apostle Paul exclaimed, "I speak in tongues more than you all" (1 Cor. 14:18). Common sense tells me that he knew something about this gift that would cause him to do this. Curiosity alone should cause all of us to want to know what he knew.
Speaking in tongues is not just a doctrinal or religious thing to do. It has powerful and positive benefits. It is a tool for walking in the freedom "wherein Christ has made us free."
If you can bring yourself to do it, I will ask you to repress any pre-determined doctrinal position and just concentrate on the thoughts I will share. My only purpose in doing this writing is to help move the people of God up and into a stronger, more victorious life in God. In chapter 2, you will read four personal, dramatic miracles that were, without question, directly connected to prior speaking in tongues.
This writing can, and I believe will, strongly affect and change your future Christian life.
