THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT TONGUES
What does the Bible teach about this gift of speaking in tongues? That’s what we are going to talk about today on the BEAT.
Hey what’s up everyone my name is Allen Parr and so today we are tackling the touchy subject of speaking in tongues. What is the gift of tongues? What are some misconceptions of tongues? How should it be used in the church?
What is the Gift of Tongues?
1) The gift of tongues originally was the supernatural ability to share the gospel in another known dialect without the speaker having previous knowledge of this language (like me speaking Japanese) – Acts 2:1-12
2) Some also believe it is the ability to speak and/or pray in an unknown language.
So What are some of the Misconceptions?
1) Everyone can learn to speak in tongues – The Bible teaches that tongues is a spiritual gift. It also teaches that the Holy Spirit is the one who distributes spiritual gifts to believers AS HE WILLS. So just like any other gift you cannot choose your gifts they are given to you. So I don’t how a Christian can learn to speak in tongues any more than they can learn to possess the gift of pastoring of healing or miracles.
2) The second misconception is…People who speak in tongues have more spiritual power than those that don’t – I don’t see anywhere in Scripture where a person who spoke/prayed in tongues was able to accomplish more spiritually than those that didn’t.
a. This type of mentality merely divides the church more than it already is into the haves and the have-nots and makes those that don’t have the gift feel inferior.
How should this Gift be used in the Church?
1) There must be an interpreter – So if you’re in church and everyone is speaking in tongues Paul says, what if someone who isn’t familiar with the gift or an unbeliever comes in? (Put yourself in their shoes) They will think they’ve just entered into a crazy place. (14:23) So the question is, “Why would you want to take a chance of offending, confusing or turning off an unbeliever from church simply because you feel the need to speak/pray in tongues in church?” Which is why Paul said, “I CAN speak in tongues but IN CHURCH I would rather speak in a language that EVERYONE can understand.” So even Paul said he doesn’t speak in tongues in church unless there is a KNOWN interpreter present.
2) Experience should never contradict Scripture – Sometimes people will say, “well I just felt the Spirit.” Saints, the same Spirit who empowers us to use our gifts is the same Spirit who inspired the writing of the Bible and He cannot contradict Himself by leading you to have an experience in church that goes against the writing of Scripture.
Finally, because a Christian’s view on this subject has nothing to do with salvation.
It is my prayer that your views and experiences with this will be based on scripture
Always remember to be sensitive to unbelievers when in a church…
Finally, be careful not to adopt the mentality that people who have the gift are more spiritual or more powerful than those that don’t.
I would love to know your experience with this as it relates to the church so please leave your comments below I’d love to hear them.
We should be focused more on exemplifying the fruit of the Spirit than we are with the gifts of the Spirit.

Hey everyone, I really need to say something that is on my heart. It is after midnight here and this is heavy on my heart. As I am reading some of the comments on this thread it is becoming very clear to me that the enemy is using this topic to further divide the church. We must always remember that his goal is to get us to argue back and forth on these issues that really have nothing to do with our salvation and distract us from what we really should be unified about, which is sharing our faith and encouraging and edifying other believers. Please know that even though I disagree with some of these comments, it doesn't mean that I love each of you any less. Also hope that even though many of you disagree with the stance on this video that you respect me and know that we all love the Lord and we are all fighting against the same enemy. As you comment further, please keep this in mind, and please continue to respect others as you comment on this very controversial issue.Thank you,
Kindly read 1st Corinthians 13:1. It is evident that we do have a heavenly language (tongues) and the earthly toungues (The one you gave an example about you and Japan) The one about Japan, is a gift of the Holy Spirit to specific individual(s) to spread the gospel to nations out there. However, the Heavenly one is a language that only GOD and/or heavely being understand. It is a DIRECT verbal communication between the Holy Spirit and GOD. The Bible is clear that GOD is a spirit and those who worship HIM must worship HIM in Spirit and truth. By in Spirit I believe the heavenly tongues play a massive role. I stand to be corrected. Scriptural backing would be highly appreciated.
your wrong I seen it many times when Jimmy Swaggart has altar calls for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and not only do many people speak in tongues they also have people who can interpret the tongues I guarantee you Pentecostal Churches have the biggest miracles the same as in the New Testament go to a Oneness Pentecostal Church and you will have a experience some Churches never had it some Churches had it and they don't have it anymore the power and presence of God is in the Pentecostal Churches any Church from Azusa Street Revival Nazarene they all have the anointing go see for yourself and stop making these videos
When you first starting talking you hit it. Speaking in tongues is just speaking in another person's native tongue (language). if i explain scriptures in English but him her and them speak French or Spanish or German Chinese Japanese whatever. i would need another brudda rooted in sound doctrine and familiar with French Spanish German Chinese Japanese whatever the language is that's tongues. Today we know we have study another language to understand and speak thoroughly. The apostles (Jews-House of Judah & real biblical Jews are Negroes by blood lineage seed) in Acts received this gift spiritually and taught Christ to other Jews (Judah Benjamin Levi - House of Judah Southern Kingdom Israelites) Christ the MessiYah. Keep all the moral laws, civil laws, dietary laws and ceremony laws (Sabbaths new moons feast days) but Christ Jesus (Yahawashi) fulfill the laws of sacrifice. The laws of sacrifice required your best sheep goat ox bull for forgiveness of sins and also bring a 10th of crops oils wines meats for the priests (Tribe of Levi) because Levites got no land but did the priest duties services of the Most High GOD (YAHAWAH/JEHOVAH) of Israel/Yisrael/Yasharahla. What the Christianity church today calls speaking in tongues to catch the "Holy Ghost" (aka Holy Spirit) is witchcraft false religion doctrines of men. Me and my uncle had this discussion but he swears speaking in tongues is having the Holy Spirit. Me and another homegurl fell out b'koz she wanna be what the Sunday Christianity church tells her about YAH's salvation. Ain't nobody saved. Saved from what?? The destruction hasn't happened yet. Scriptures in Revelation speak on heaven being established on Earth. So how are all these so-called Christians dying and floating off to heaven?? Its 12 gates with 12 names of each of the 12 Tribes of Yisrael. How are all these other nations promised the kingdom of YAH?? How they gonna get in without being an Israelite (more importantly a repented Israelite)?? The scriptures don't contradict themselves. YAH cannot lie. But tongues is just speaking another language but we know we have study another language to speak it. That's all. Some people wanna get simple stoopid retawdid brazy. Some people still think Joseph didn't know Mary until after MessiYah was born. Well how was Christ Jesus born if Joseph and Mary (Christ Jesus biological father and mother) didn't have sex?? How could MessiYah come in the flesh then?? Angels aren't created for sex nor never have they ever had sex with any woman. Christianity is a slave religion and a false religion just like Islam just like all world religions. You're following Nimrod, Baal, the Devil, Satan. Caucasian-White Jewish Jesus never existed. MessiYah is a Black man
I think that a lot of people fake it, and some of those people are often the ones that push you to trying it out.
I don't know I just don't feel comfortable doing something like that which leads me to the conclusion that this is not something for me.
I do believe that is it a very real thing. But as I said I also believe many fake it or want to do it just so badly that they push it into saying gibberish without meaning.
This guy is a person that used to be a Pentecostal..went aways from it because he was experiencing what other people are experiencing it so he decided that it's unbiblical.. and now he teaches his doctrine of unbelief to other people pathetic. Your whole doctrine is based on your experience or lack thereof not the Bible
We are stuck in the matrix until we break the seven seals. Christ asked us to follow him. To pick up our sword and reveal the truth and reveal the false prophets to be pure of heart and save as many souls as possible he did not ask us to hide behind him in fear. That is the demonic belief that is trapping us in the matrix. Evil is winning we must all pick up our swords now. My generations millenials and Gen Zare preparing for the battle. Everyone of them I come across knows it is time.
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams
+adam grigsby i would study the scriptures of ancient civilizations and then come back and read the bible and after I would love to debate. Look into the akkashik records and then reread Revelations. The book of life and council in the most high is spoken of in many cultures ancient texts written before the bible.
34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
A lot of people fake it. I see this in my own church. They seem to think that they are being considered as super spiritual if they shake & jabber. The Hebrew word can mean the literal tongue of human or animal & it can also be translated as language...
Acts 2 makes it very clear that the unknown tongues are languages that were understood by those who spoke that language. The Jews were taught to look for a sign to verify something was of the Almighty. The ability to miraculously speak other languages without learning was "one sign" for the unbelieving Jews. Another sign were the miraculous healings. The gospel was offered first to the Jews. Once they rejected Christ and the gospel, the apostles were directed by God to take the gospel to the gentile nations, with many different tongues & dialects. That was the purpose of the gift (1) as a sign to both the Jew & the unbeliever (2) the practical means to further the gospel. It is noteworthy that the sign was evidenced only before Jews in the 3 occasions referred to in Acts. We currently have many languages but in the millennium there will only be one pure language. So the gift of speaking an unknown language will no longer be nesessary, just as prophesy & supernatural knowledge shall also cease. The gifts were given for a specified time for a specified purpose. In 1 corithian we are clearly told that the tongues, knowledge & prophesy will cease. Faith & hope will continue untill the Lord returns for his church but they too will cease for our faith & hope will give place to sight & realisation.
Thanks, Allen. This is my first time to hear you as I was doing some research on "speaking in tongues" for teaching in our church here in the Philippines and came across you on Youtube. In less than five minutes you clearly defined simple basic truths about "speaking in tongues". All your comments were Bible-based and glorifying to GOD. Those who I have met that think they have this gift usually brags about it. That is a sure sign they don't possess "the gift of tongues" because in Chapter 13 Paul writes that they must be done in love and love never boast itself. As a missionary for the past 40 years, I want to encourage you in the Lord to keep up the good work brother.
Speaking in tongues means you speak another language. It not some made up you hear some TV preachers do. Most TV preachers preach what you will find in a baby diaper. People believe them as truth due to the fact they do not read the Holy Scriptures.
He is right I have the same ideas of using the language in church.
This gift only helped me so far to be a witness of God’s existence, the Bible’s truth and of course to still have faith in Him despite of all worldly controversies.
If I was not given this gift years ago,NOW I wouldn’t believe the God and His words.I am saved and blessed because he wanted me to be.
"And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him."
Religious people are bonkers. It's great. And also, a bit sad to witness. People are so desperate for happiness, they'll seem to do or believe any nonsense they can just to fulfill that selfish need. In the case of speaking in tongues, I'm not sure they do it because it makes them feel special or if they're just having fun.
Either way, when are we going to move past these outdated stone age beliefs? It's all clearly nonsense, just as the loads of religions that came and died before were.
I have a question. Why does right before 1 Corinthians 23 where it says the unbeliever will think the believers have lost there mind then right before that in verse 22 it says Tounges are a sign for unbelievers not believers?
John Stamos I was unbeliever but once I saw my own (believer) sister speaking in tongue without any prior language education I become very eager to know more about it then later I received the same gift with prayers and become a believer.
Don't stop reading at 1Corinthians 12:11 read on to the end of chapter 12 you will find in verses 12,13,14 and so on where God says WE are ALL ONE boby in CHRIST!!! Just as the body has MANY parts but they still only ONE body so it is with CHRIST JESUS 🙏! So to ME that means you may speak in tongues and I can't...but I may have Faith and you don't, but because WE are ALL ONE body in CHRIST JESUS your tongue and my Faith worked TOGETHER to serve as ONE HOLY SPIRIT!
1 Corinthians 14:5 I G1161 would G2309 that ye G5209 all G3956 spake G2980 with tongues, G1100 but G1161 rather G3123 that G2443 ye prophesied: G4395 for G1063 greater G3187 is he that prophesieth G4395 than G2228 he that speaketh G2980 with tongues, G1100 except G1508 he G1622 interpret, G1329 that G2443 the church G1577 may receive G2983 edifying. G3619
1 Corinthians 14:6 G1161 Now, G3570 brethren, G80 if G1437 I come G2064 unto G4314 you G5209 speaking G2980 with tongues, G1100 what G5101 shall I profit G5623 you, G5209 except G3362 I shall speak G2980 to you G5213 either G2228 by G1722 revelation, G602 or G2228 by G1722 knowledge, G1108 or G2228 by G1722 prophesying, G4394 or G2228 by G1722 doctrine? G1322
1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank G2168 my G3450 God, G2316 I speak G2980 with tongues G1100 more than G3123 ye G5216 all: G3956
1 Corinthians 14:21 In G1722 the law G3551 it is written, G1125 G3754 With G1722 men of other tongues G2084 and G2532 other G2087 G1722 lips G5491 will I speak G2980 unto this G5129 people; G2992 and G2532 yet for all G3779 that will they G1522 not G3761 hear G1522 me, G3450 saith G3004 the Lord. G2962
1 Corinthians 14:22 Wherefore G5620 tongues G1100 are G1526 for G1519 a sign, G4592 not G3756 to them that believe, G4100 but G235 to them that believe not: G571 but G1161 prophesying G4394 serveth not G3756 for them that believe not, G571 but G235 for them which believe. G4100
1 Corinthians 14:23 If G1437 therefore G3767 the whole G3650 church G1577 be come together G4905 into G1909 one place, G846 and G2532 all G3956 speak G2980 with tongues, G1100 and G1161 there come in G1525 those that are unlearned, G2399 or G2228 unbelievers, G571 will they G2046 not G3756 say G2046 that G3754 ye are mad? G3105
1 Corinthians 14:39 Wherefore, G5620 brethren, G80 covet G2206 to prophesy, G4395 and G2532 forbid G2967 not G3361 to speak G2980 with tongues. G1100
Where you state 0:57 that's wrong, Romans 8:26 - Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
1 Corinthians 14:2 - For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 14 Talks all about the Speaking of Tongues, it is not just a language on Earth, you can also use it when you do not know what to pray for and you just call on the Lord in tongues.
I'm sorry but please read the Bible. Speaking in Tongues is for today but like any other gift from God, it should be used appropriately.
1 Corinthians 14:2, 10, 13-15 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
I met a pastor once who started going "jalllaaaaalllaaaahhhhhlllaaaallaaaabbbluuuuuboooooooogggllloooooobbbbbllloooppppyyypppoooppppppoooooopynnnoooooobbbbbbaaaalllaaaaallllaaaaalllaahhhh.......etc." It was one incredibly embarrassing scene. I now am a true believer.....that it is bullshit.
Speaking in tongues was a sign for unbelieving Jews as clearly noted by Paul ““Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.”
1 Corinthians 14:22 KJV
Therefore, to “some divers kinds of tongues.”
Honestly, I don’t even think the tongues that we witness in Pentecostalism is the same tongues on the day of Pentecost. It was a supernatural overpowering experience on that day and on the other two occasions. Pentecostals do it on their own and it’s not even a language it’s just like a hashuwabababa booboo boo kapapa
I agree with everything except... if you get excited while worship I don’t think a person should stop themselves from speaking in tongues at church. They’re just excited and in the moment, I agree that it scares unbelievers.
Although Some people go over board to put on a show. Like I’m super holy cause I’m rolling on the floor and fainting.
Like what Jesus said the Pharisees did that prayed long and putting on a show for other men to gain respect.
What about angelic tungues , my brother in christ you need to be realy filled with Holy Spirit first then you gonna have your own experians , and to tell you the truth that no one teach you in bible study the faith dont grow unless by the experiences so if you are real Christian and you know the real God more than any other religius man you must have your spiritual experience and when you realy get filled with the Holy Spirit you will understand the bible better as a personal message from God and as a living book set your spirit on fire of Holy Spirit so our God is a living God and we are already gifted if we are a real Christians becaus God dont give somthing we dont need to , you must pray by Holy Spirit , that your words spoken by God , because the armor of God is real spiritual armor you cant see it by your naked eyes but when you have the person of Holy Spirit with you you know who is him and how you need him to give you the power of God , because you are realy in a spiritual war and you need a spiritual weapons and armors or you will easily be defeated most dangrous battles are with your owne thoghts and desires , so belive or not if you want to have the victory of Jesus on every thing you must let him to defeat the sin and death in your life by his spirit and praying in tongues will be given to you in the right tim when you need it you will find your self speaking with it but its realy not a language you talk with it when ever you want , but the most important thing is be filled with Holy Spirit and be guided by him all the time and you shall see and feel the supernatural work of our almighty God behind all our human logic understandings , if any of my words are not biblical just mention it and i will write the vers because this are videos of the living bible of our living God
I've experienced the gift and I feel that I am not as spiritual guided as some, but my relationship has always been there and I've talked true to him. I know it's the holy spirit praying through me to God and wish that I can understand but these words I say feel blurted out and its awesome because it feels pure.
explaining tongues is when there's a message for u in tongues but Tongues is a language no man understands because we speak to God and not to MAN.... Please explain yourself better because most thing's u said were wrong explanation
Tongues is for your personal edification and there must be order in a church service. I know personally of an unbeliever that did not come back to a church because of Christians speaking in tongues. It does not make you better than other Christians. It is to build yourself up.
Hey guys it's good to speak about the tongues...I would like leave some notes here...Speaking in tongues you can not learn it by going any where but it's a gift. Paul's says it's speaking secrete with God. It' gives personal edification...So don't try to speak yourself but if it is given by the HOLY SPIRIT. Do not hesitate to speak...I speak in tongue n it takes me to the higher level of edification. Thank you
Well, would Jesus be sufficient enough? He said Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani" on the cross. No it wasn't His common language because the people standing around didn't know what He said, and why wouldn't He say it the way He would usually?
When He healed Jairus' daughter He said “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” Why did He say it that way, He was in the room alone? Why does it say what the translation was if it didn't need to be?
Why did Paul say that he wishes all of them would speak in tongues and that he spoke more than all of them? Why did many many people hear their own language being spoken in Acts 2? They ridiculed them also and said that they were all drunk, just like people today who don't have any spiritual understanding. This isn't a hard subject, it just seems weird so we discount it as false. A lot of people confuse the gift of tongues for MINISTRY and the gift of tongues for PERSONAL USE, they are used differently. Theres too much to write about so ill stop now. :)
Dude, thank you for posting this. Nobody's got the balls to call people out when there is no translator. That, and it's just plain garbage.
Tongues are the modern day version of making sure you're seen praying on the street corner. It's something to *attain* to.
It's all rolled up in the gospel of wealth. Gramma died? You should have spoken in tongues, or had more faith, or prayed more.
As an Anglican I have a pretty open mind in terms of what God can and sometimes will do. I actually had a guy on a forum start TYPING IN TONGUES when I called him out on it. It's all just so silly, and, frankly, very damaging.
I recognize your sticky post, and know it's from your heart, but you have to remember that it stratifies a church that has no canonical structure. There's no common structure or system of belief apart from Jesus. This is why I *ran* back to my birth church *out* of the evangelical church. The Pentecostals are particularly troublesome, and that was another reason I made the decision to return in my mid-20s.
It's not a gift. It's bullshit people acting like children. Oh, and we get to swear, smoke, and drink. Another reason I'm back home in Anglo-Catholicism.
All the best,
Fr. Jack, SSP
Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
I am a Christian but I left a congregation where the leader tried to push it on us and I saw him as a show off. I do respect the gift of speaking in tongues but alot of people are using it as a showboat and a false superiority. These type Christians are not interested in the true word of God and they are ignorant and fail to mostly understand that Jesus gave that gift to the Apostles because they were Jews from every tribe in Jerusalem who spoke in different languages and Christ made sure they understood his word through the Apostles. Speaking in tongues is not supposed to be used as a gloating vehicle and speaking in tongues has absolutely nothing to do with you being saved. I left that congregation and I won't ever attend again.
Sorry to hear what you've been through, but just because we have had some bad apples in the church, doesn't mean you should just throw the gift that was given to you away. Paul spoke in tongues all the time and was not an original Apostle. If it has nothing to do with being saved, then why do you HAVE the Holy Spirit? There is a difference between the gift of tongues for 'ministry' to the saints, and the 'personal' gift of tongues for each individual.
I'm a ex Muslim and after many years I have accepted Lord. first weak after babtize I got many words from God and second week I have babtized another person and started to speak on tongues thrd week or weak I don't know to write this word my English is not so good but on third I have heal many persons in name of Jesus then I got more and more words from God about people who needs help then I have babtized many people more and more... Jesus have help me to leave drugs and many other bad things he helps me to not judge people he is the greatest he is our Lord he leads my life... He loves you he have died for yours sins... Amen
I just subbed. Now unsubbing. The gift of tongues CAN be given to anyone. The gift is a language between you and the Lord. Nobody HAS to interpret it because He knows what we are saying. It’s a very personal relationship with the Father.
I've been in church for 35 years I prayed over me to speak in tongues God told me one time if you don't speak in tongues you don't have to speak in tongues that was his word and I'll believe that to the day I die and I still don't speak in tongue to this day I don't need to when he wants to that's the day I'll speak in tongues amen
The evidence shows that traditional big time evangelist who travel in private Jets to foreign countries to preach the Gospel ALWAYS have an interpreter in the native language of the country they are visiting. The same goes for all churches . The so-called Angelic or private prayer fabricated gibberish they claim to be the gift of tongues do absolutely nothing for them where is needed the most. What makes it even worse is that they don't care and violate every single word the apostle Paul spoke about this subject in the book of Corinthians. To leave a door open to even pretend that this gift is still available today is to be blind to the fact that NOBODY has proven that they have it. I say put your money where your mouth is and prove that you do speak foreign languages that you never learned before, it is as simple as that. The fakers are playing with fire and those who claimed they can TEACH tongues are little servants of your father the devil.
You just answered your own question and the error of this video. The reason why they do not speak in the language of the country they are in while they are preaching, is because THAT IS NOT THE REASON FOR THE GIFT OF TONGUES (caps meant for emphasis not anger..:) ) I feel the reason behind your statement has a deeper undertone since you are harping on about 'big time' evangelists and 'private jets'. Who cares about that stuff if we are talking about tongues as the subject here? And what do we violate what Paul said? Please explain.
So god gave the gift of tongue so that someone else can interpret what the tongue-speaker is saying? Did he not learn from his mistake with the bible? When is he gonna just be upfront and show himself rather than leaving everything up for interpretation? I think it's time hr hires an assistant.
There's and underlying miss conception that you're referring to the Bible/God's word when your referring to "unknown" tongues, "unknown" is not in the Greek this is a misinterpretation of the KJV, perhaps what they were trying to say was that the tongue was unknown to them, but it was never meant to be that it was a language "unknown" to man, the Greek says, "other", as in a language that was not of the speaker. Another false premise running through this argument is that tongue, glossolalia, can mean something that is unintelligible, "unknown", or babble. That is never the case in the OT or NT and the two times a similar word is used in the OT when it's not talking about intelligible language and that's not about translating those sounds into an intelligible language.
One of the most important points about tongues is..
As you pray in the spirit you are allowing the Holy Spirit
In you to pray the perfect will of God for your life, past,
Present and future. He (Holy Spirit) will reveal Gods plan
for your life and call or purpose.
John 14:26, put you in remembrance of all things His told you and John 16:13 will show youthings to come.
Our Father God means what He says, and says what He means. The Holy Spirit here on the earth at this time is evidence by His mission and purpose. If praying in an unknown tongue wasn't important, it would not be available to the body of Christ. So pray people and watch God change your life by this wonderful gift.
Well, I am blind, and I’ve had people praying over me in tongues, trying o heal me! Lol! That jiibberish scares me and God doesn’t give us a spirit of fear but of love and a sound mind. Besides, if God sees fit to keep me in the dark,, (pun intended) then I’ll stay in the dark.
Well folks too late already benefited and have done this hundreds of times
It amazes me how so many who do not speak in tongues speak like they are the authority on it
Well I have have been speaking in tongues since 1988 and I can tell you
It is a tool that God has given us to encourage ourself in the spirit,
Through tongues we get insight into the heart and mind of God.
It is a form of fellowship with the Holy spirit. We are quickened in our minds to the things of the spirit.
We are declaring the mandates and orders from heaven straight into the earth . and yes it is a heavenly language.
1 cor 13. "If I speak in the tongues of men and of ANGELS.....
Dont argue the word unless you are in the spirit , and if you do get in to the spirit you probably wont argue then anyway! live in love this is a relationship not a religion please stop treating it as such!
Do you want to hear the Holy Spirit speak? If so, Read and Understand the Words of Jesus Christ exactly as they are written in the Holy Bible. Jesus says: "The WORDS I speak to you are HOLY SPIRIT and they are TRUTH." John 6:63 (NKJV). Anyone who wants the Holy Spirit coming out of their mouth should concentrate on quoting Jesus Christ, accurately. Anyone who honestly wants to have the Holy Spirit living in them should get rid of their selfish arrogance and allow the *verbatim* Words of Jesus Christ to live in them. That is The Holy Spirit far Greater in Power than any vomiting of gibberish will ever do. All the false teachings about praying in tongues along with the false practice of it come from Satan whose entire goal is to contradict the Holy Bible. The Word of God IS THE HOLY SPIRIT. From God's mouth comes LIFE.
From the misleading mouth of Satan comes Death.
I attended a large Pentecostal church in my town for several months. I am a Christian and claim any particular denomination. I liked the Pastor and his messages were relevant but I stopped going because it was at times difficult to hear him. Oftentimes there would be people sitting in the pews speaking in tongues and it was hard to hear the message being given.
I usually agree with you, but this one I do not agree with :-( I think you should check out this video! Please watch it with a open heart. I truly am giving this to you lovingly.
All — I truly suggest watching this explanation of the gift of speaking in tongues. It’s for everyone who wants it and I truly do not believe we can live a Christian life operating at it’s full capacity without this gifting.
We had a Missionary to the Amazon of 45 years, that explained it well. Within 3 days of arriving in Brazil, he could read, speak and write Portuguese fluently. THAT IS THE GIFT OF TONGUES. It is not an unknown language of Earth, just unknown to you. It is not for the
Believer, if the Pastor and Congregation speak the same language,what is the need for another? There must always be a Translator present, Women are to be silent in Church (and God says why. I am a wife and mother. My pic is of my cousin).It is all in 1 Corinthians Chapter 14. Just read it.
I have a question is it wrong to tell someone that have to leave when they catch the Holy Spirit? Today my daughter and I went to church and she walked in the church and we started praising with music and she started to have the Holy Spirit and then she started Shouting “ God Loves You”!! And he’s coming soon!!! And she got removed to the back and then she started shouting out the song is praise and was asked to leave if she could not control her self
God is not a God of confusion. This simply man going their own way once again.
Speaking in tongues ‘babble’ talk is not a requirement of God. - the warms against worshipping this way.
...the pagans did it...
The Disciples were given the gift of speaking and understanding different languages to share the gospel throughout the world. Period.
From my understanding, speaking in tongues is a channeling of Spirit. I've heard it described as psychic ability, supernatural ability, telepathy... basically using the body to hear and see what is hidden. In that vein, the ability to channel can be a gift, I guess... depends on how one chooses to use that gift. Not all intentions are pure. Or vessels for that matter. And the environment of the church itself would determine ability too. Not all places would you want to open yourself up like that. Not all places may allow it. Interesting subject regardless ☺️
I thought speaking in tongue meant to be born with a wisdom type voice , in a seemingly wishy washy way teacher to people , prophet speaking.
Like being able to speak about god but the average person doesn’t or can’t understand. I never got the notion of another language only the Holy Spirit can. Hence them being a HOLY SPIRIT and not a human (sinner) can know what I’m saying, I believe this is a history error.
There are ways I can talk about God that even my parents couldn’t understand, they haven’t experienced what I have spiritually, me speaking poetically about it is the “tongues” so I shut up and learned they won’t hear me in this language.
Yes for edification of the church there must be an interpreter, I've seen people speaking in tongues for a while and then after that same person interpret or sometimes another person interpret.. but pls get it that their are two types for personal prayer which Paul says even pray for understanding of the tongues.. And no I don't believe that if someone doesn't speak it that they are not baptize.. "do all speak in tongues? Are all healers? "Was Paul question which obviously is NO! But I agree that this should not be a topic to sport division just as vegans and vegetarians topic it a all trivial.. seek rather for the edifying of the church we are commanded not strive
Well I’m completely torn on this topic as of right. I’m looking st different arguments in the comments and everyone sounds pretty convincing. I’m trying to read and understand on my own but it’s difficult because I have some health issues to my nervous system and so my focus and comprehension with reading isn’t quite the same as it used to be.
It’s seems what makes the most sense to me currently is that the gift to speak in tongues was used to draw unbelievers to the lord in the early church days, because unbelievers usually had hardened hearts and required a sign to be won over. There does seem to be evidence for tongues to be a unique language to God from the individual but it seems that it’s been perverted by many evangelical pastors of the century to be used to show how “holy” you are. In Matthew 6:7 Christ says that when we pray don’t use vain repetitions like the heathens do; because their really doing so to show off and look a certain way. And that’s exactly the vibe I get from many evangelicals who preach and teach that way!
Why haven’t they been following what Paul wrote about in 1 Corinth 14 about the church praying in tongues publicly? He clearly wrote that if unbelievers are present in the house of God while all that is going on, we will look crazy & it won’t benefit the unbelievers to carry on that way. The church has been missing out on opportunities to win souls because of foolery that takes place in churches all because folks want to look a certain way and it needs to STOP!
Also, Paul writes that even if you are using authentic tongues in public, an interpreter should be present always! So if no body is interpreting, then stick to using your tongues privately between you & God (if you say you have the gift) like it was intended for.
And how can it be that anyone can have the gift of tongues (like most evangelicals claim) when 1 Corinth 12:11 says that the Spirit distributes the gifts “as He will”... meaning The Spirit will decide who receives the gifts and who does not, like it says on verses 8-10. Just seems to be way too many folks who claim to speak in tongues and be “spirit filled” but fail to exhibit the fruits of the spirit in their daily lives.
I’m just going to do what Christ says at the end of the day: John 6:63 he says ““It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life”. Here he’s saying his very words he speaks are spirit. So if His words are spirit then why not just pray the words that are written in the book? Just pray them, read them, live by them and you count go wrong. People falling out and praying in tongues looking to appear “holy” just seems WAY to close to kundalini, which is false God Hinduism prayer! Look it up if you aren’t familiar with it, it’s just “vain repetition” most of the time which the Bible says is pointless.
Who’s right and wrong shouldn’t be a focus; crazy how the enemy can easily turn us against one another by something so unimportant such as this. Living for God, living righteously is what pleases Him and when you do so I believe you will see the fruit of it in your life
Whilst the gift of tongues is an interesting topic, in my opinion, it is more important to be focusing on what really matters to our salvation and the salvation of others. If you have the gift of tongues and can use it to preach the Word of God to people who’s native language is different to yours, then awesome, good on you, but if you can’t use it well, it’s best to focus on the more important things in life.
