Gift Of Tongues Causes Problems

Is it usual that after being given the gift of speaking in tongues the devil will attack even more than before? A relative of mine was given this gift a few months ago and the testing of the faith of this family, and her personally, since then have been just awful.

*When she finished, it was quiet, and the Pastor interpretated and said, Come and lay all your troubles at my feet and nail them to the cross, Thus saith the Lord. People flocked around the alter.*

Now if that was an evil Spirit it had to be a stupid one. One that forogt what team it was on. God bless. Great story. =)

Rebecca D-- Woman, Sounds to me like you have a top notch church. And I think that is GREAT. WOW!

I said what I said earlier to make a point. My point is that speaking in tongues is a gift from the Holy Ghost and so isn't interpertation. I have heard those on this blog that believes that speaking in tongues is of the devil. Some are, but like I did, try the spirit and then you will know if it is of God or not.

This evening at church, before the Pastor gave an alter call. A woman opened her mouth and spoke in tongues. I've never heard her speak in tongues, so I tried the spirit. When she started speaking in tongues, I said to God (in my mind), Lord if this is of you, then let there be an interpretation. When she finished, it was quiet, and the Pastor interpretated and said, Come and lay all your troubles at my feet and nail them to the cross, Thus saith the Lord. People flocked around the alter.

There is a discernable difference in a genuine message of diverse tongues vs. something spoken out of person's prayer language. We need to know how the Holy Spirit of God flows, moves, operates.
Messages in diverse tongues will always have an interpretation. And the person who has the gift of tongues should always be prepared to interpret it. Don't speak or give a tongue if you can't give the interpretation.
---Gabrielle on 4/1/07




This happens all the time. People stand up, give a few words, sit down, everyone looks and wonders. "Brother, come back and give the interpretation to that." "Oh, I'm sorry, I don't have it." Then do not stand up and give a tongue. Anyone can say a few words in their prayer language. But that is not the gift of tongues or interpretation.

You cannot counterfeit a heavenly language.
Counterfeits cannot give a diverse tongue. If they try, it's immediately exposed. If it's a counterfeit tongue, you'll know it a mile away. Be careful of strangers that come into churches and want to give a tongue.
The gift of tongues, is a gift from heaven and it will always bring a blessing.

The gift of tongues will not cause you to foam at the mouth like a rabid dog or blather yourself into insanity. People cause problems, but the gift of tongues will not cause problems.
People confuse speaking in tongues with the gift of tongues, one of the nine, 9 gifts.
---Gabrielle on 4/1/07


Speaking in tongues is not the same as the gift of tongues. The gift of tongues is giving a message in diverse kinds of tongues.
That comes only as the Holy Spirit wills.
Every one of the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit is as the Spirit of God wills, not as you will.

Speaking in tongues is your private prayer language.
Many people make the mistake of standing up in church, praying in their private prayer language and think it's the gift of tongues.
This is when you will see uncomfortable silence in a church. They'll jump up, pray in the private prayer language and wait for the interpretation. It's not diverse tongues and they should be told so. They need to sit down.
---Gabrielle on 4/1/07




To deny tongues as a placement in the church is to deny other gifts also. To not understand is different. If I don't understand something in God's word, I offer it back that He will present it in a way I can. There are 3 basic "tongues". 1)personal edification, 2)Church edification, 3)personal intercession with God (in prayer). Those times when language is not enough, God gives us utterances between He & us alone. Study to see the scriptures. It is in the Book.

Missy, where in the Bible does God say, to use the gift of tongues like a sword against evil?
---wayne on 8/23/05


this is what the devil wants you to believe that the gift of tongues has brought this hard ship upon you and your family.Keep striking back in the prayer of the Holy Spirit,it is a gift that I wouldn't trade back. God wants us to use this gift like a sword to do battle against evil. May God Bless you and continue to pour His love over you in Jesus's name

Any time a person draws nearer to God in any way they may well be attacked by the enemy.The more power from God a person receives as they draw nearer causes Satan to tremble in his skin knowing how God works through and uses His people for the Kingdom of God's sake.They need to know they have power over all the power of the enemy through Jesus Name and can call upon Christ to fight those battles.Jude verse 20,They can build themselves up in their most holy faith by praying in the HG/tongues.
---Darlene_1 on 8/21/05


i never heard of that before, but the enemy does hate EVERY true spirit-filled Christian, and he greatly desires that they turn away from God and be destroyed.
---Eloy on 8/20/05


The closer you get to God, harder the battles. Whomever recieves any of the gifts from God will face more percuation, tribulation, from Satan, and those that are jealous. Don't give up for this is what Satan wants you to do.

Lea I'm sorry you've misunderstood the question. The family is not the one coming against the one with tongues it is much evil coming against the family (her included) and has only happened since the tongues began, hence the connection in my mind. Some would say it's just coincidence of course.
---F.F. on 8/20/05


I don't do the tongue thing either. I have a hard time with english. However, the devil has hit me with both barrels, but he is loosing anyway. He tried to defeat my ministry but it isn't working. I am praying, working and trying harder than ever now. I know God will make things better than they were before.

The gift of tongues in Acts was the understanding of different languages. The tongues spoken was a notable language to different people. In Genesis 11, God confounded the language, and in Acts 2 God brought it back together.
---Richard on 8/19/05


When we become Christ-Like satan will attack he wont bother you untill you become a Child of the Kingdom and another thing To talk to God in a new tongue infuriates the devil for he cant understand Heavenly tongues This is why it is imperative to be filled with Gods Power. And if the rest of the family is coming against your relative then that should tell you something... This relative is filled with the Holy Spirit and Power and in Gods word it also says our enemies will be the foes of our own homes.

It's usually not due to a gift. It's when your being effective Satan attacks.

I've never been on board with the tongue gift. I don't see a purpose in it.
