1 Corinthians 14:4 (KJV) He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

A. The Word “Edifieth” means “To Be a House Builder” (Strong’s) “To build a house” and “Well Builded” (Vines)

B. God compares us to the “Builder” and the “House Being Built”

C. The Amplified Bible says, “Edifies and Improves Himself”

D. Some Christians are looking for God to build us up and make us stronger, but God has given us the tools to do it ourselves

E. God gave us a tool to use for building ourselves up – Praying in tongues

F. Tongues is the “Tool of the Builder”

G. The devil, religion and even Christians fight against tongues because of the difference it will make in your life if you use this tool

H. Praying in tongues is the key to being the best version of a Believer we can be in this world

I. Why live a “Propped Up” life when you can live a “Built Up” life
