He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself; but he that prophesies edifies the church.-1 Cor 14:4
EDIFY in Greek rendering is called “oikodomeo” which means to building or construct a house.
Literally to erect a building from the foundation and, if it gets destroyed, to restore it by re-building or repairing it.
The Pharisees were mad at Jesus when he said in Matt 26:61;
“I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to BUILD it in three days.”(Build here, is the same word oikodomeo)
If you are born again and you don’t pray in tongues, you are losing BIG!
Speak in tongues everywhere – in your office, kitchen, bathroom, car, bus, closets; building yourself into a giant in Christ Jesus.
