For with stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to
this people, To whom He said, “This is the rest with which You may cause the
weary to rest,” And, “This is the refreshing”.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who
is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name
they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up
serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them;
they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your
children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those
who ask Him!
If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who
believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of
living water. But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in
Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another
Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world
cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him,
for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will
come to you.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send
in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all
things that I said to you.
It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go
away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will
guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but
whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will
glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things
that the Father has are Mine. Therefore, I said that He will take of Mine and declare
it to you.
And being assembled together with them, He commanded them
not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father,
“which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water,
but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come
upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the
Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are
afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit
fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who
believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the
Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak
with tongues and magnify God.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are
children of God.
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do
not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the
Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them,
and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to
God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries
I Corinthians 14:2
He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself.
I Corinthians 14:4
Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may
interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is
unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I
will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will
also sing with the understanding.
I Corinthians 14:13-15
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy
faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.
