To spread the Word, what is the most important tool?


Peter pre/post Holy Spirit Matthew 26:69-74 vs. Acts 2:14-15, 36

·       Personal vs. Public FaithTongue/Speech—James 3:2-8


1 Corinthians 14:1-2 Prophecy: divinely inspired speech (revelation)


1 Corinthians 4:4-14 Speech/Wisdom as a function of revelation


Matthew 16:17 (NKJV) Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.


Luke 24:32 (NKJV)And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”


Luke 24:45 (NKJV)And He opened their understanding (minds), that they might comprehend the Scriptures.


1 Corinthians 14:3-4


Jude 20 (AMPC)But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit.


1 Corinthians 14:5-15


Romans 8:26-27 (TPT)

26 And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to God with emotional sighs too deep for words. 27 God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.


James 4:3 (NKJV)—You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss...


1 Corinthians 14:23-25, 27-28, 33
