Tongues and prophecies are beautiful spiritual gifts that are exhorted to be used regularly by apostle Paul in the Bible. 1 Corinthians 14 :1-5 says we are to desire spiritual gift especially prophecies. Paul said “Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be built up!”
When was the last time you earnest desire spiritual gift in church and in your life? Tongues?? Prophecies? It's almost not cool to say that and that sounds a little out of place like New York. Well apparently Paul doesn't think so for them to be listed in the Bible. He said it's very important! Paul actually said I want you ALL to speak in tongues!! Not only those those belong to the Pentecostal church. Then he says even more to prophesy.
This is widely practiced in churches in Asia and Africa and South America. There is a real lack in NYC. We need to bring this into the kingdom of God in NYC.
