Do not be drunk with wine wherein is excess but be filled with the Holy Spirit .
Eph_5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Truly Ask yourself this question for the Writer of Ephesians made it clear
1.Speak to yourselves in psalms & Hymns &Spiritual Songs
We have psalms in the Bible we don’t have hymns . But what is a Hymn and what are spiritual songs ? To my knowledge a search for hymns does not tell us what Hymns are but tells me it is sung. Mat_26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Col_3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Hymns And Psalms can be used to Admonish and Teach !
I don’t think God will hide the meaning of his word from us especially when he knows we are diligently seeking him .
God gave you Reason for a reason.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
When did you cast out your last Devil ? .Cant remember right ? your last serpent take up ? your last laying of hands to heal people ? Yet someone somewhere is telling you that tongues are a must and essential for the believer and if you don't speak in tongues something is wrong with you. But then so must casting out of Devils and picking up serpents ! Many of us cant even pick up rats ! Some tell us Tongues are a Spiritual language .. All well and Good but the very first Usage was as a sign on Pentecost at Antioch to those who could understand other earthly languages !
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
. Stop hurting yourself. You're probably having a hard time in life right now. That's why you're seeking a better relationship with God, right? Seek this relationship with God but remember that you must begin by respecting yourself. Stop doing the things that are making your life harder and begin to respect yourself and work for a better life. For the Bible tells us, "So, brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercies, I encourage you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service.
Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature." (Romans 12:1-2). This means that you are the most important thing to God and that living your life well is the best way to give him thanks. Do this first, and you will be ready for the Holy Spirit. And Let me warn you Many Will Hate and Despise you for this but this is a SURE Sign that you are most definitely on the right Path. Most people like to do what many people are doing and find it hard to do what one person is doing.
Act 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Act 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
1Co_12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
TO ANOTHER ? Some have the ability to have diverse gifts ..
Who fills us According to the Bible ?
Joh_14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Abide means to dwell and reside
Joh_14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Joh_15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Joh_16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
But I will show you a better way ..
1Co_13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Read Ist Corinthians 13 to find out the end of the matter .
