When we study Speaking in Tongues in the Bible, we will mainly be studying the book of Acts and the book of 1 Corinthians. In the book of Acts, we study about Speaking in Tongues upon receiving the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). In the book of 1 Corinthians, we study about Speaking in Tongues during a Church service, and during a Christian's life.
The Bible declares if we do not have the Holy Ghost (the Spirit of God) dwelling in us, we are not a Christian. We must receive the Holy Ghost; it is absolutely necessary! The Holy Ghost is a gift from God to the people who are genuinely following Jesus Christ.
The book of Acts records events of people receiving the Holy Ghost. When people received the Holy Ghost in the Bible, they spoke in tongues. This happened repeatedly, forming a pattern. It is believed, speaking in tongues naturally takes place when someone receives the Holy Ghost.
The belief concludes, if we did not speak in tongues, we did not receive the Holy Ghost. This belief about speaking in tongues upon receiving the Holy Ghost is based on Biblical records, personal experiences, and eye witnessing: the speaking in tongues that happened in the Bible; the speaking in tongues that happened to them; the speaking in tongues that is happening to other people in their church. They see a big Godly change in a person’s life after he receives the Holy Ghost, genuinely speaks in tongues, and continues to follow the Spirit of God.
