One day I had a exhausting discussion with a Jewish young man, who did not want to believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was very proud and looked down at me. After three hours of discussing I suggested we should pray and ask God to speak to us. He agreed.
It was friday evening, so he uttered a prayer in Hebrew, for the shabbat. When it was my turn, I first prayed in my own language to God, but suddenly I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me: ‘David, be bold now and pray out loud in tongues!’ I lifted my hands and began to speak in tongues.
I opened my eyes a little bit and looked briefly at the Jewish young man. He had his mouth wide open and looked at me, as if I was a ghost. He was absolutely stunned…
After I had prayer in tongues for a few minutes, I felt the Holy Spirit say it was OK, so I stopped. My guest immediately asked me:
‘Have you got any idea what you just said?’ ‘No’, I replied. ‘This is what I have explained you, it is the Spirit of God inside of me who prays.’
I asked him to explain why he was so shocked. He said: ‘David, the language you were speaking was 80-90 % OLD HEBREW. This is a holy language, only used by older Rabbis in Israel and… only when they speak about God!’
The attitude of this young man changed from midnight to bright daylight. All his pride had melted away and now he begged me: ‘Please, can you help to get this close to God?’ I explained him again about Jesus Christ. When he left, he thanked me with all his heart and said he would do what I had told him.
This is just one of many experiences I have had with the gift of speaking in tongues. This gift of the Holy Spirit is very powerful and the Bible says clearly that it is available for christians today.
David Sorensen had a dramatic encounter with God, which completely transformed his life. He decided to spend the rest of his life showing others show real God is and how much he loves us. David's desire is that people would learn how to experience God as the most beautiful reality there is.
