TEXT: ACTS 2:1-13


Introduction: God is a God of purpose. When He decided to release the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost upon the early church, it was for a reason. It is said that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. Our focus tonight shall be the continuation of purpose of tongues and its impacts in a believer’s life. May the Holy Spirit help us to take our place in this end time, in Jesus’ Name.

Purpose of Tongues

1. The Command Of Audience: The people in Jerusalem didn’t mind the disciples after the accession of Christ. Becoming a follower of someone who was killed by the government made the disciples to lack relevance and audience.  (Acts 2:6; Acts 13:44)

–      Every believer exercising himself in speaking in tongues is an audience commander.

 2. The Explosion of Praise: When the real and authentic Holy Spirit fills your life, you are permanently addicted to praise and worship (Acts 2:11; Ephe. 5:18-20)

–      The Holy Spirit is a fountain of worship and new songs

–      Every time the Spirit moves, songs flow, deliverance flows, healing flows and power flows.

 3.  The Impartation of Enthusiasm and Excitement: The in-filling of the Holy Ghost baptizes a person with enthusiasm, excitement and momentum. (1 Cor.14:4; Acts 2:25-26; Neh.8:10)

–      You need to know that the devil is on rampage to steal people’s joy. John 10:10

–      If you can’t be depressed, you can’t be oppressed. Depression is a mother of oppression. 

–      Holy Spirit makes a man a ‘wild optimist’ and enthusiastically positivistic.

–      It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to survive the satanic holocaust coming upon the world in this endtime.

–      Holy Spirit is a Spiritual battery charger 1 Cor. 14:4 (Greek Word – Oikodomeo)
