Tongues & Torture

Soul Snacks S9/12 ... Tongues and Torture

#The story is told of a persecuted Christian lady who was pregnant. She had been arrested by the authorities just for being a Christian. Miraculously, both she and her baby survived the ordeal and made it back to her family. During her captivity, she was tortured quite badly yet continued to speak in tongues and also about the Holy Spirit. Curiously one of her captors attempted to befriend her saying, “Just stop talking about this Holy Spirit – that’s all you need to do.” Her answer was this, “How can I constrain the Holy Spirit - you may as well try to put the wind in a box.”

As Katherine Kuhlman once said, “Please don’t grieve Him – He is all I’ve got.”

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Eph 4:30)

How could anyone deliberately hurt the Spirit of God by constraining Him who is their divine downpayment on heaven?
