YouVersion Notes

According to Jesus, Holy Spirit came to # 1 Guide us into all truth and # 2 Take of what is Jesus’ and declare it to us.

When we pray in the spirit/in tongues, we are downloading and speaking the hidden wisdom and mysteries of God, as Holy Spirit hears them from the Father and the Son and declares them to us. So, when we pray in tongues, Holy Spirit is communicating things we cannot know in the natural. It’s our spirit talking to God to know what the Father and Jesus are saying.

” . . . we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written:“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
