Ridge Pointe Happenings

We hope that you will experience the warmth and love that we want to share with you. Our motto here at Ridge Pointe is: “We accept you just as Christ accepted us.”
 
Memory Verse
In the law it is written: “With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; And yet, for all that, they will not hear Me,” says the Lord. Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers… (1 Corinthians 14:21–22).
 
Words of Wisdom
Paul quotes the prophet Isaiah in 1 Cor. 14:21 to show that the main purpose of the gift of tongues was to convict Jewish unbelievers of their sin and unbelief. Isaiah wrote that because Israel refused to listen to God’s warning concerning an imminent Assyrian invasion, God would instruct them by means of a foreign-speaking invading army. The foreign language was a sign of the judgment of God on Israel. Paul then makes his application: “Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers.” The Holy Spirit gave the spiritual gift of foreign languages (or, tongues) to the early church to wake His chosen people, the Jews, up to the truth that Christ was indeed the Messiah and Savior!
