Great Sermon! What a blessing to finally hear a sermon on this subject from someone who actually believes that the Lord still gifts some people with this gift. I have tried to discuss this gift with many "Bible Scholars" only to be reprimanded and told that I should not judge people and that the Lord does not work in that way today. I didn't understand the gift myself and was just trying to get information so that I could understand it better. I didn't go to Bible school but I am married to the Pastor of a Fundamental Baptist church. I believe this is why I have the gift. I have no pre-conceived notions about how God is supposed to work today according to the local Bible scholars. I only know what the Bible says and what I have learned from good Bible preaching and the Holy Spirit Himself, Who knows all about everything that I need to know. What a precious gift that the Lord has given to our church.You were right about feeling alone. As Tozer said, " The man who carries a cross will not have many friends". That's O.K with me if that is what the Lord wants. Thank you for letting the Lord use you to speak to my heart.
Great Sermon! Since Paul moved from church to church, country to country, don't you think "tongues" would be language? I personally think God understands all languages, therefore no need for "tongues".
