An Adventure Through Space Learning The Fundamentals of Truth - Lesson 8 - Speaking In Tongues

Starship Truthprise's Space Log :

Billy and Captain D just found out that the navigation device has a translator within and they can speak and understand any alien life forms! Very useful on a spaceship!

We Believe..

The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

Memory Verse :

James 3:5-6

New International Version (NIV)
Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

Doe Doe and the Flaming Tongue (An object lesson on Speaking in Tongues)  :

Doe Doe shows us an example of how powerful one tiny flame can be - and how there is only one way that we can control our tongue! 

Bible Lesson : 

Acts 10:24-48 (Cornelius and His Friends Speaking in Tongues)

We may think that we are special because we are saved by Jesus, and really this is how the Jewish community felt about themselves because they were the chosen people of God.  God did a miraculous thing when he poured the Holy Spirit on Cornelius and his friends because they were all gentiles, which meant that they were NOT Jews and NOT the chosen people.  

It showed that God was accepting all people.  He did this by making sure something happened - speaking in tongues.  It is possible that they would have believed without that outward sign, but with it - the disciples AND 'circumcised' according to the story could not doubt that God had done what happened there.  Do not doubt what God does in your life, and never be afraid to give Him control of that most powerful device, your tongue!
