YESSSSSSSSSSS Cahra Wai hi tum ah hai – now this may look silly written down but there is a fabulous testimony with it…… I didn’t want to speak in tongues and fought ALL the way to my anointing. I was raised a Catholic and I didn’t become born again until age 38. I sat in Pastor’s house all creeped out by them all chanting and Pastors wife came over to me. She held my hand and said come on – try! And I BAWLED and cried and said NO! Then Pastor came and held my other hand too. I was a kid who had been heavily abused and rejected at only aged 3. For the first time in my life, I felt the love of 2 physical parents sat either side of me and I tried because they loved me and no-one ha ever loved me before.
I did it for Pastor and Avril not God but Jesus is kind and respects that I SPEAK IN TRUTH. I did a little bit then cried some more and fought a bit more. Then, I came home very upset. I said Jesus, Daddy, I don’t like this, I dont want to, it’s too hard. I said I can’t. and Jesus smiled and said ‘hey you miss ‘ I teach speak life and don’t say can’t’ walking by faith not sight and I said oh Jesus nooooooooo I don’t want to! he said exactly, so I said show me, I’m stuck and as GOD IS MY JUDGE, I was shown a piece of paper and GOD wrote them words above spelled like that! I said them and I giggled and I said them again and I was massively uplifted with this HUUUUGE joy! And then woaaaaah out they came and wouldn’t stop. My son was crying, he said mothers gone mental, she’s talking chinese, she needs a shrink, she’s lost the plot. I continued and then the revelation came – Jesus brought back a childhood memory that I thought I had forgotten. he reminded me of a time, I chalked on a board and said these words and they were exactly the same that HE gave me aged 6 in my bedroom where I used to run and hide when I was beated and abused and this is what I did when I was small.
How’s about a Hallelujia for that. These days all at my church are fascinated and they all say, i wonder if it’s Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, it’s definitely oriental of some form and one day someone will interpret but wow WHEN THE SPIRIT MOVES, INHIBITION HAS TO FLEE!. God bless. I LOVE teaching on subjects that some avoid deliberately as they see them as controversial – speaking in tongues charges our spiritual battery like NOTHING ELSE and I couldnt go an hour or so without them automatically falling from my mouth these days. Hallelujah!
The benefits of praying in tongues!
Here is an interesting health thought. Dr. Carl Pterson of ORU in, OK Tulsa is a brain specialist researching the relationship between the brain and praying in tongues and made some amazing discoveries.
Through research and testing, the Doctor found that as we pray in the spirit or worship in the spirit (our heavenly language), there is activity that begins in the brain. As we engage in our heavenly language, the brain releases two chemical secretions that are directed into our immune systems giving a 35 to 40% boost in the immune system. This promotes healing within our bodies.
Amazingly, this secretion is triggered from a part of the brain that has no other apparent activity in humans and we don’t use it! It’s ONLY activated by our Spirit led prayer and worship. We need to pray in tongues now more than ever before.
