„And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?”Isaiah 8:19
„For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.”Isaiah 28:11
„Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men. 21In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. 22Wherefore tongues are for a sign”1 Corinthians 14
Dr. Preston Bailey, in one of his recent interview try to persuade Christians that because Satan can talk in demonic tongues, therefore according to him: „all tongues must be of Satan”. As we see from the Bible- nothing can be further from the Truth!
What does the Bible REALLY say? What would Paul answer to this ridiculous statement? He would surely rebuke him and his spirits of religion/tradition, deducting Dr.Bailey has NOT been baptised in the Holy Spirit HIMSELF! Let’s examine his faulty, crooked and Baptistic logic…
EXAMPLES OF FAULTY AND WRONG LOGIC:
* For centuries most fake religions (even to this very day) practice some sort of ‚cleansing’/’exorcism’ in which they call upon higher demon to remove or swap lesser demons! Therefore ‚every exorcism is of satan’?
* Every false religion does ‚water baptism'(just take a look at Buddhism, Hinduism, Catholicism, Orthodox ‚churches’…), therefore ‚all water baptism must be of satan’?
* All religions use the word ‚God’, therefore all that claim to be ‚God’ is satan?
* From the times of Sumerian religion, false systems use ‚healing’, therefore ‚all healings must come from satan’?
* All religions propose some sort of ‚salvation’, therefore ‚salvation is always from satan’?
As you could notice, this is totally faulty logic. Rather, satan is some sort of God’ monkey. He and demons try to work out a counterfeit. There is false exorcism, where a priest call upon the higher demon to get rid of lesser spirit (e.g Islam). Catholic, Orthodox, Hinduism, Buddhism offer baptisms that is fake, yet in the Bible there is true water baptism!
For centuries false religions used demons to heal. Still, in both OT and NT we see people who healed in the Name of True God(Yahweh, Jesus)!All religious offer you some kind of ‚salvation’ and ‚way to heaven’, yet only Jesus Christ is given to lead you to true God and true heaven!
Demons can talk in satanic languages, yet God has his own, heavenly languages that are above the demonic and more powerful!
Another fake doctrine is that you get baptism in the Holy Spirit, from the moment you believed. This doctrine contradict the whole NT! Before the first 120 Pentecostal believers received the promised baptism in the Holy Spirit (on the Day of Pentecost, in the upper room), Jesus talked and prophesied about it:
„And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; “Mark 16
Let’s examine few more Scriptures:
Disciples of Jesus Christ, although they were SAVED, they were not baptised in the Holy Spirit till their day of Pentecost!
„He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”John 7:38-39
Acts 2:3 „cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.”, after Holy Ghost fell on them!
Acts 2:4 other tongues
„And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
In the First Century church, before the appearance of Counterfeit, both Paul, Jesus and Peter saw speaking in tongues as the proof of reception of the Holy Spirit:
„While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?”Acts 10:45-46
„And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.”Acts 19
Nowadays, Ivory Towers of self-made theology keep folks out of God’s foundations and blessings!
Paul talked in tongues of men and angels:
„Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels”1 Cor 13:1
Tongues of men mean supernatural, Holy Spirit-given tongues of languages ever spoken in this Earth, while ‚tongues of angels’ are supernatural, out of this world- tongues!
Paul was ‚charismaniac’:
” I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all”1 Corinthians 14:18
” Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.”1 Corinthians 14:39
So, was Paul the Apostle teaching early church how to practise ‚the occult’? Of course not! Let’s remember the warning given by Jesus to some Ivory Towers of ignorance and error:
” But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges “Matthew 12:24-27
„But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. “Luke 11:15-19
„And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. “Mark 3:22-27
The same spirit exist in the church today! They keep people away from the Biblical blessings and create divisions and chaos.
Take a look at more reasons:
* All people in the upper room (without exception) spoke in tongues, after Holy Spirit fell on them! These people were saved for years, yet did not have the baptism!
* Paul talked in tongues, and was more ardent in it than all Christians combined. This about this one…
* Philip preached salvation and demonstrated power of the Holy Ghost while in Samaria, healing folks and casting out demons. People of Samaria received Jesus Christ, but you read about Apostles coming down from Jerusalem to specially pray for them to receive the Baptism!
„Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.”Acts 8
Peter and John both talked in tongues, and similar to Paul, they checked if they receive the Holy Spirit as they ‚in the beginning'(Acts 2)!
Peter was checking out the manifestation of tongues, to figure out IF somebody received the baptism in the Holy
„And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning”Acts 11:15
„While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?”Acts 10
Paul was the same way. When he met some Christians in the book of Acts 19, he asked them questions. They were saved but nobody prayed for them to receive the baptism. When Paul put hands on them the ‚talked in tongues’:
„He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.”Acts 19
Dr Preston Bailey, like many similar people don’t preach the Gospel and has not insight in this topic whatsoever. He has not baptism yet he tried to lecture people about it. Don’t allow people to keep you from you inheritance!
Dr. Jerry Savelle explain it this way (audio-http://media.jerrysavelle.org/jsmiaudio/0549.mp3)
As you could read FROM THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNTS, every Christian is the first church, who claimed to get Holy Spirit, was checked if he talked in tongues. Jesus Christ, our Master and Savior, Apostle Paul, Peter and John believed this with their whole hearts and preached it.
Dr. Preston Bailey is a false teacher, and he got this from his Seminary. Both his logic and ‚theology’ is not Biblical and wrong. Jesus Christ comments it this way:
„Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”Luke 11:52
Pharisees of old supposed to keep close to the Bible and preach it, instead they invented their own tradition/ religion/ human faulty logic. The result was this: all who cling to their reasoning were kept from God’s given blessings for the whole life…
„Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”Matthew 15:14
Can a person who is deceived tell you the Truth? Can a person who is blind describe the sun for you?
I dare to say, NONE of the preachers have any right to change the Bible! And dear Reader, YOU CHOOSE if Jesus, Paul, Peter, John and the rest were right…or perhaps Dr. Bailey and his ilk…The costs of error are so great!
Hallelu Jah! To The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, the only Savior and God!
