ROR – Tongues And Interpretation! Wednesday, June 17th, 2020, By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD DSc DD


Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret (1 Corinthians 14:13).

Many years ago, as a young teenager, I was preparing, alongside my friends, for a crusade; so, we met often, praying and fasting, with words of prophecy. One day, I arrived early to pray ahead of the others. While I was praying, speaking in tongues, I had the intuition that I was saying things in the Spirit that had to do with the crusade, but the words were coming out in tongues and I didn’t have the interpretation. None of my friends, two of whom had the gift of interpretation of tongues, had come.

I continued speaking in tongues and I was still feeling the unction so strong. Then, I said, “Lord, I need the gift of the interpretation of tongues so I can know what the Spirit is bringing to my understanding.” As I continued praying and speaking in tongues, suddenly, I received the interpretation and began to speak them out in English Language. Oh, how elated I was!

Then I took my journal and began to write. I spoke the words and interpreted. And guess what? Those things that were brought to my understanding about the crusade all came to pass. Praise God! Interpretation of tongues is so important. Tongues and interpretation of tongues equal prophecy. And prophecy brings edification.

As you speak in tongues in prophetic utterance, you can trust the Holy Spirit to bring the message to your understanding. If you thought you were blessed speaking in tongues, wait until you receive the interpretation. The experience will bring you such unspeakable joy! If you don’t have the interpretation, the Lord says to ask for it, and it’s His desire to grant it, through the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!


Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the Holy Spirit who has given me the ability to speak in tongues and commune with you in a heavenly language. I take advantage of this privilege, not only to declare divine mysteries, but also to bring them to my understanding through prophetic utterance, by the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Further Study:

1 Corinthians 14:5
“I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater [is] he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.”

1 Corinthians 14:12-19
“Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual [gifts], seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.
13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue pray that he may interpret.
14 For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.
15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?
17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.
18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that [by my voice] I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an [unknown] tongue.”

Confession For Today June 17th, 2020

I experience the supernatural in my body every day by the power of God’s Spirit. The Greater One lives in me. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost; therefore, there’s no room for sickness in my body.


I’m born again; therefore, I’m not ordinary. As the Father has life in Himself, even so, has He given me to have His life: life without limits. Thus, I function with supernatural strength and abilities today; nothing and no one can hurt or harm me, for my sufficiency is of God. I am born of the Word and Spirit of the Lord; therefore, I’m impregnable to everything that hurts or binds because I hail from God! I’ve overcome the devil and the cohorts of darkness, because the greater one indwells me! I am a master over Satan because my spirit, soul, and body are now infused with divinity. I am a product of God’s Word, for my origin is the Word of God; therefore my words and actions are backed by divine authority, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.


The Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth. The word prevails in and through me today. I believe and therefore I speak, because the Word is my life, and the glory and blessings therein are evident in me. My life is supernatural and I live triumphantly every day. Christ in me is my assurance of a life of endless possibilities and ever-increasing glory. I’m superior to Satan, the circumstances of life, the darkness, and the economic conditions of this world. I’m a victor in Christ Jesus, now and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Pray-A-Thon 2020 – Wed June 17 @PastorChrisLive

Have you read your Rhapsody today? Ensure you do, and share the amazing truths on tongues and interpretation with others.

The Bible says in Acts 4:33, ’…And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all’.

At our prayer times today, we’ll pray fervidly in tongues of the Spirit, and for the Churches of Christ around the world; that they be strengthened continually and walk in great grace to fulfill the perfect will of Christ, leading many to the Lord, establishing the saints in all of God’s will, and bringing to pass the Lord’s agenda, among all nations. Hallelujah!

Remember to attend the Midweek service today, onsite or online. God bless you.


Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for the wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit that You’ve given me. He’s the One who guides me in excellence. Your wisdom in me is the force that causes me to flourish, excel, and be victorious in all things. Through fellowship with You, I’ve become sensitive to Your voice and yielding to Your promptings within me. Your blessed works, plans, and purposes are accomplished in, and through me. I am in Christ; He is my ability and competence. Through Him, all things are possible to me. I can do all things because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I know who I am, what I have, and all that I can do in Christ. My potentials are limitless; I am innovative, excellent, and sound! Hallelujah!

God’s Word is my foundation; therefore, I have a great life. I have a struggle-free and stress-free life. My life is full of bliss! I have a great day, every day, irrespective of what the situation may be. I am in charge, and I have the upper hand in life. As I respond to and use the Word in simple matters of life, I win. God’s Word is my basis and foundation for a great life. I am solidly built on the rock; I am immovable. I withstand and surmount the harsh pressures of life; I am impregnable to the crises of life. My mind is stationed on the Word, and I’ve received insight and understanding of the principles for a successful life. I earnestly desire the Word, and by it, I grow into the fullness of my salvation. I am forever victorious because the Holy Spirit has given me an advantage in all things. Hallelujah!

• Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we’ve got something to shout about. Let’s flood the airwaves, internet and print media with the reality of Christ.
