The Spirit’s Voice
Considering the controversy surrounding the gifts of the Holy Spirit especially Tongues; and because we acknowledge the importance of the Holy Spirit to the church, we decided to publish the following article.

How Satan Stops Christians from Receiving the Prayer Language
Praying in Tongues (the Prayer Language)
satan has had a very successful campaign in preventing Christians from getting the Gift of Tongues. There are so many lies and misunderstanding in the church about this gift.
In short, satan allows the Church to talk about it, study it, debate about it, have nice doctrinal discussions about it, as long as they just NEVER get it.
What good is a soldier that knows all about guns, but doesn’t have one.
Not using this Gift has crippled the Church, preventing many believers from maturing on to the Higher Gifts. It’s time to use the Gifts that God has given us.
If you’re a Christian who doesn’t have the Prayer Language yet… Get It!
Stop making excuses of why you don’t need it, or how you failed to get it before. JUST GET IT!
and if you already have the gift…Use It. Stir It Up. It doesn’t do any good if it lies dormant.
Let’s look at some of the LIES that have prevented Christians from receiving this gift.
Lie #1: It’s from the devil, satan is speaking through you.
There no example in the bible of the gift of tongues being from satan?
No one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor 12:3; if I pray in tongues, my spirit is praying, 1 Cor. 14:14
So the gift of Tongues is not from the devil.
Lie #2: It’s not for everyone.
The problem with this of the prayer language in the first church received the gift.
Let’s look at what it says in Acts 2
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place…All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
And according to one of my pastor friends, he was leading a revival meeting where 300 people came forward to receive this gift. And when he prayed, all 300 people received the gift. So what are the chances that this gift is only for some people and not for others. It’s available to anyone who has faith to receive it.
Lie # 3: I already tried, It didn’t work, I can’t receive it.
In my experience, a simple 5 minute prayer to receive this gift may not be enough. Maybe some anointed pastors can do it that quick, but for me, I’ve seen that a person will have to press in, and pray hard to receive it.
Teaching people about this gift will stir up their faith to receive it. You may need to pray more than 1 hour, to receive it. So be Patient!
