Tongues and the Anointing – by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – The Power of Tongues (Book Extract)…

When you’re born again and filled with the Holy Ghost, the power of God comes to reside in you. This power is triggered off or set in motion when you speak in other tongues.

“He that speaketh in an tongue edifieth himself; …” (1 Corinthians 14:4).

The Greek word translated “edifieth” is “oikodomeo,” which means to charge up like you would charge up a battery. This scripture is therefore telling us that one who speaks in an unknown tongue builds himself up like an edifice; he emboldens himself and charges himself like a battery.

There is no limitation as to what the Spirit of God can do in your life today if you would spend some quality time to speak in other tongues.

When you speak in tongues, you’re not talking to men but to God. You’re speaking mysteries – secret truths, hidden things that are not obvious to the understanding. When you speak in other other tongues, secret truths and realities are being revealed.

Tim Phillips received Jesus into his heart the day before Easter at age 4 (during his 5th year of life) in 1975. He immediately began preaching in his home as play church. In 1984 he became serious as the Lord revealed to him during a sermon, ...not to just tell people what they are doing wrong, but to tell them ( through the Word) how to do right before God. This revelation caused him to develop the heart of a teacher. He became serious about his "garage church" trying to reach all neighbors within hearing distance. Week after week he taught encourage those who listened to serve God. Later, that year God spoke to him in several dreams confirming his call to preach. In 1986 Tim Phillips began preaching at the church that his family attended. Then, in 1988 he was licensed to preach officially. He has preached and studied the word of God for over 26 years. He has done one-on-one counseling and spiritual guidance during this same period. Recently, he was prompted to launch this site to teach and encourage people to consider their eternal future. Eternality is at hand, some of us are only a breath away. Jesus stands with His arms outstretched ready save you from a future in Hell.
