This is the Fifth message of a series of Six on the topic of “GIFTS” from the book of 1 Corinthians Chapters 12, 13 and 14.  This month’s message is “Gift of Tongues”. This is the day, the time and the hour to hear and receive the very Word of God and believe it and stand upon the Word of God.


As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Paul the Apostle in the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 12 referring to Gift of Tongues; “WILL WE OPEN OUR EARS TO HEAR WHAT SAYS THE WORD OF GOD?”  “OR WILL WE CHOSE TO KEEP OUR EARS AND HEART CLOSED TO GOD” IT’S YOUR CHOICE.

Will you take this day, time and this very hour to make your choice and or decision? Will you receive God and His Word “AND BE BORN AGAIN INTO HIS KINGDOM”? Below is a prayer to receive Jesus Christ and start a relationship of eternal life with Him.

 Prayer to Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior

Heavenly Father,
I come to you in the Name of Jesus, I repent of my sins and I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I believe and confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and believe He died on the cross and rose on the third day. I ask you to come into my heart. I ask you now to wash me and cleanse me. I give you my spirit, soul and body.  I will with your help follow you all the days of my life. I thank you for writing my name in the Lambs Book of life.
Thank you Father, In Jesus Name, Amen
