About Bob Lindfelt’s work on speaking in tongues
For over 50 years I have dedicated my life to biblical research and Christian service. The subject of speaking in tongues caught my interest many years ago when I first spoke in tongues in 1967.
Where in most Christian circles speaking in tongues is looked down upon either as unavailable in the present day or as unimportant. But a simple reading of the Scriptures reveals a significant emphasis on speaking in tongues. There are 21 clear sections on speaking in tongues in the Bible and many other references to its usage.
Speaking in tongues, I discovered, was an essential aspect of the Christian Church that God instituted to bless man and to connect with Himself. Since the time I first spoke in tongues it has become, and still is, a significant part of my Christian life. Speaking in tongues provides for me with unspeakable joy, knowing I have a 24 hour link with my Heavenly Father. It has truly given rest to my soul and an assurance to my heart. It confirms the eternal reality of Christ within.
I believe speaking in tongues offers unlimited satisfaction to the heart and soul of every believer who really wants to know the truth of God’s purpose for this magnificent manifestation. I believe speaking in tongues is one of those undiscovered blessings that have been hidden for too long from most of God’s people.
