According to the New Testament the worship service involved singing, teaching, preaching, prayer and messages in tongues (prophecy), interpretation of tongues and revelation (1 Corinthians 14:26). This creates a rich atmosphere which produces deliverance, healing, breaking of bondages, demon spirits expelled and much more. It is in such a refreshing and spirit permeated worship atmosphere that the gift of prophecy would be demonstrated. Prophecy is: an inspired utterance made under the anointing of the Holy Spirit to bring edification, exhortation and comfort to the people of God (1 Corinthians 14:3-25). It is to convince the unbeliever of the reality of God amongst us. The gift of tongues is a message to the church that must be interpreted for it to be complete. The gift of divers kinds of tongues is a supernatural utterance whereby the spirit of God speaks expressly to the church. The interpretation of tongues functions with the above to edify the church in the same manner as the gift of prophecy. The message given in an unknown tongue is interpreted to the congregation.
