Tongues: Study References

If you are going to study Tongues you need to have a proper context. You must also make sure to throw out everything you think you know and take the words for what they say, not skim them and think you know what they say. Much has been misread by old religion. It is also very helpful to go back and study the Greek on much of the NT around this. English translations by religious scholars have totally messed up a variety of scriptures because they translated with their own biases. The following are the scripture verses I reference when I study this topic. I'll be adding to this if I find more, from time to time.

Verses on Tongues:

  • Saved and Spirit Filled are a seperate Issue:
    • How does Jesus give the disciples the Holy Spirit in John 20:22 and then also tell them to wait for the Holy Spirit. Isn't that a bit double minded? Unless there are two things happening here. 
    • When the Holy Spirit arrives on the scene it is noticable. The Apostles notice when He's NOT there. Acts 8:12-22 Either says:
      • If the Holy Spirit coming on you is the SAME as being born again, you need hands laid on you and evidence before you are saved... OR
      • If the Holy Spirit coming on you is NOT THE SAME as being born again, which this verse indicates, there is something else going on here. 
  • "Evidence":
    • I'm not among those who believe that Tongues is "THE" evidence of being Spirit Filled, but I do believe it's among the strongest evidences.  
      • Acts 2: Holy Spirit = Tongues
      • Acts 8:1-18 Holy Spirit clearly sperate issue from being saved, tongues not mentioned, but implied as SOMETHING was clear evidence or lack thereof, and in most other instances Tongues is present. 
        • (Vs 12 They Believed and Baptised)(Vs 15-17 Spirit had not come on them, so Apostles laid hands on them. Vs 18 Simon "Saw" the spirit come on them... how so?) 
      • Acts 10:45-48 Peter sees them "get the Holy Spirit" How does he know? Tongues and Praise. 
      • Acts 19:1-7 Paul comes accross people saved by baptism of repentance but clearly notices they don't have the Holy Spirit on them and lays hands on them. What is the result? Tongues. 
  • Who works what in whom? What does "ALL" mean to you?
  • What does "Pray in the Spirit" mean?
    • 1 Cor 14:12-16
    • Notice that Paul is asking the Corinthians to seek the gifts that build... which means they have the right and ability to develope all the gifts they want to.
    • I'd suggest to read and re-read 1 Cor 14 over and over and over... because MOST people make it say exactly the opposite of what it says. 
  • Other: Verses and Sections
    • All of 1 Corinthians 12, 13, 14
    • All of Acts
    • Daniel 5:25 "Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin" What was that? God speaking in a language unkown to ALL the scholars around the King, and Daniel interpreting the Word of God through God's unkown language. Sound Familiar?
    • Genesis 11:4-11 Babel is the begining of conusion in language, and The Holy Spirit is the restoration of that confusion! 
    • Pray in the Spirit (1 Cor 14:21 Cor 14:13-15Romans 8:26-27Ephesians 6:18Jude 1:20)

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.

Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Short Story: The Treasure Room

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
It's true, where you spend your money is an indication of what you value. This is why Tithe (money) is the number one indicator of whether you Trust God (heart issue).

What if we turned this verse around for a moment? What if we imagined that the treasure is your heart?

For where your heart is, there will be your deepest treasures.We then come to realize that the human heart is the real treasure. It's not our money or belongings that matter in life, but the hearts we touch along the way.

As I pondered that this morning, I imagined the following story. I hope you enjoy and take something away for yourself today.


The sun poured into his bedroom window casting shadows around his room. The birds chirping in the tree just outside provided a bittersweet contrast to his otherwise solemn mood.

The house did not get many visitors, because Bob was a sheltered man. He lived far away, in the mountains. When he des…
