Jesus said this referring to the Holy Spirit who would come upon them after His ascension into heaven. To understand this scripture it helps to under the Trinity of our God. We are tri-une beings. We are spirit, soul, and body. We are created in God’s image, who also is a tri-une being. God the Father is God’s Spirit. God the Son is God’s soul, for He is the Word. God the Holy Spirit is God’s body, for He does the work. Just as we can do nothing without our bodies, so God the Father and God the Son can do nothing without His body the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was born God the Father was His Spirit. He was God’s soul. He lived in a human body which was created by God’s word. He needed God, the Holy Spirit, to come upon His human body in order to create the words that He spoke. It was only after the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus that the fullness of the Godhead was upon Him. It was only after the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus’ human body could He do the works that He did. When we become born-again God the Father comes inside of our spirit. God the Son lives in our soul (heart and mind). We are instructed to build a house with God’s word in our hearts and minds for Jesus to live in. However, we are powerless until God, the Holy Spirit, comes upon our bodies, enduing us with power from on high. It is only after the Holy Spirit comes upon us, when we are baptized into the Holy Spirit, that we are empowered to speak God’s word and His Spirit creates His word that we speak. When God’s body, the Holy Spirit, comes upon our bodies He gives our spirit a prayer language the Bible calls, another tongue or other tongues, to pray in. As we pray in other tongues our spirit and the Holy Spirit is praying the perfect will of God for our lives, as well as, the lives of the saints around the world. As we are praying in other tongues God’s Holy Spirit searches our hearts, God’s heart, and all things in order to bring God’s perfect will to our lives. These other tongues are the rivers that flow out of our belly (spirit). As we are praying in other tongues God’s Holy Spirit searches for God’s will and then comes and reveals God’s will to us.
