Is speaking in tongues for everyone? Yes! Once you receive Jesus as your Lord, you can also receive this wonderful spiritual gift. Jesus said that we would be baptized in the Holy Spirit in the book of John. Then again in the book of Acts He said that we would "receive power" when the Holy Spirit comes upon us. After Jesus returned to heaven, this power came to the disciples when they spoke in tongues. You too can receive God's power when you receive the gift of speaking in tongues.
