Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. The last days is the time from when Jesus ascended into heaven until when He returns again to this earth. So, you and I are living in the last days which has been going on for over years. In the last days, the Spirit is continually being poured out on every believer who will receive Him, as the believers did on that first day of Pentecost. As there is a lot of Scripture on the topic, we will just be summarizing some of the most important points.

Last Sunday, we refuted the common view that every believer is Spirit baptized when they are saved. The Bible teaches that Spirit baptism is a separate experience subsequent to salvation. How do you know that you have been Spirit baptized? The Bible teaches that the evidence is the person Spirit baptized speaks in tongues.

Today, we have time to look at one passage that shows this in Acts 10 where Peter is preaching to unsaved Gentiles. So, Peter has just presented the Gospel and the crowd believes in Jesus. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.

They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have. In this case, the people were so hungry for God and His Spirit, that they began to be baptized in the Spirit, as Peter was still speaking. Notice how the Bible says that Peter knew the Gentiles had been Spirit baptized. It says they knew because they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.

So, the new Spirit baptized believers were also baptized in water. Usually, in the New Testament, new believers are baptized in water first and then receive Spirit baptism, but here the order is reversed. So, tongues were the sign of Spirit baptism for Peter. Our story continues to show us that ….

Peter had to give a report of what had happened with these Gentile believers to the leaders of the church in Jerusalem. Here is what he said. Notice that again reiterates that the Holy Spirit came on the new believers, just as He had come on the disciples on the day of Pentecost, that is with speaking in tongues. Peter also clearly identifies the experience as the Spirit baptism that Jesus had taught them to wait for. Peter calls Spirit baptism a gift that is given to those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. So, of course, those who show the proof of Spirit baptism are also clearly saved.

The leadership of the Jerusalem church accepted that tongues were the proof of Spirit baptism and welcomed the new believers.

Guidelines for Praying in Tongues

There are a number of other accounts of Spirit baptism in Acts. The evidence always being the visible, audible evidence of speaking in tongues. The rest of the New Testament writers, then assume that all believers are both water baptized and Spirit baptized, which means they speak in tongues as well. If you read the rest of the New Testament with that in mind, it will clear up a lot of things for you.

Why is this important? Well, this morning, every believer now can answer the question of whether you have been Spirit baptized or not. You have been Spirit baptized if you have spoken in tongues. If you have not spoken in tongues, you have not been Spirit baptized.

For many people who have not studied the Bible carefully, they wonder why would God choose such a strange thing as tongues to be the evidence of Spirit baptism. Actually, when you study, tongues make a whole lot of sense. John NIV Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. First of all, we can clearly identify what Jesus is talking about here. He speaks of the Spirit being given after Jesus was glorified.

In Acts , Peter identifies Spirit baptism as what the glorified Jesus has poured out on the disciples. This Spirit baptism is spoken of by Jesus in John as being like rivers of living water flowing from within them. Spirit baptism is like a river flowing upward to God in worship, flowing outward to unbelievers in evangelism and flowing inward to the believer in edification.

You see …. Luke NIV A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. When the Spirit baptizes you and completely fills your life, your mouth will reflect the presence of the Spirit in your heart by speaking forth the words of the Spirit, which are tongues.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. You are not in any control of what you are saying. Now, you are in total control of whether you speak aloud in tongues or not. However, the content of your prayer in tongues is being generated, not by you, but by the Holy Spirit.

To be baptized by the Spirit, you must yield you tongue to the Spirit, to allow Him to speak through you, things that you know nothing of. It takes great humility to yield your tongue to the Spirit in this way. This is why some people have trouble receiving Spirit baptism.
