Baptized With Tongue Speaking

When I got saved many years ago, during one prayer meeting God baptized me with the gift of tongues but it only lasted for a few minutes. I heard one preacher say once that the evidence of being baptized with the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues, is this true?

The bk.of Acts:2 says this:Suddenly,there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm in the skies above them, and it filled the house where they were meeting.3Then,what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.4And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages,as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. Also because you were baptized and recieved the gift of tongues you can now pray in your spiritual language.

Baptism in the body: This is salvation. Paul describes being placed within the body of Jesus (baptized into Christ) and the benefit of being placed with in his body in Romans 6. References to I Cor 12:13 as speaking of baptism in the spirit, but it does not say that. It refers to baptism in the body by the Spirit and receiving in us the Spirit (drink into one Spirit.)
---Francis on 3/21/07

1 Corinthians 12:13, "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."

At conversion, the Spirit places us (baptizes us into) in the body (Jesus) and becomes resident in us. The first example of the Holy Spirit becoming resident in someone following the resurrection of Jesus is in John 20:22, "And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them,

Receive ye the Holy Ghost:" The baptizer is the Holy Spirit, the baptizee is the convert and the element is Jesus Christ himself.

Acts 1:5, "For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." This was also prophesied by John. Matthew 3:11, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:"

There are three baptisms to be understood in order to understand what the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is.. .

Baptism in the body
Baptism in water
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
---Francis on 3/21/07

Read the Moderator's comments, excellent.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit can take place at the moment you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and become born again. It happened to Cornelius.

Usually it follows repentance, saving faith, and water baptism. Heb. 6:1-2

Baptism in the Holy Spirit allows for the demonstration of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor. 12
---Francis on 3/21/07

To receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

You must be born again and have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit

You have to ask for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit Luke 11:9

You have to surrender Romans 12:1

You must be willing to obey the Holy Spirit
To be immersed in Holy Spirit, you must be willing

You need to believe with faith
Did you receive the Holy Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Gal 3:2

1 Corinthians 14:39 So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.

Is part of the bible outdated? If so, when did speaking in tongues cease?
---lee on 5/28/06

No. The evidence of the indwelling Holy Spirit is not incomprehensible babbling. The Bible says it is the fruits of the spirit that evidence His presence. If you will check, the gift of tongues was manifest in the ears of the audience, where all heard the speaker in their respective languages. Is that what happens in pentacostal meetings today? I don't think so.

#2 He told God he was going to go one time and asked Him to reveal the truth to him. That night a lady got up and spoke in tongues. She spoke in Cherokee of which she had never spoke before and didn't know what language she was speaking. It turned out that the man was the only one there that understood Cherokee and the message was just for him. God made a believer out of him after that.

Yes what this preacher said is true .That is just the begining of your walk with the Lord is reveiving the Holy Ghost next step is to be babtize in Jesus Name Acts 2 37-38 Some times people receive the Holy Ghost first we have to do both and then they get Babtist.
other times they get Babtize first and then they receive the Holy Ghost this is the way it happen to me If you only Recive the Holy Ghost and do not go on and be babtize you are only half born

I've been discussing these things with you for a few days now, I speak in tongues, interpret tongues, prophesy, cast out devils, heal the sick, raise the dead, operate in word of knowlege and word of wisdom, teach, preach, all by the Spirit of God. I know these exist because they are in my ministry you would have a very hard time proving that I am of the devil, but you know they crucified jesus as a blasphemer. exzucuh

To prove the tongues and interpation theroy, a preacher took a friend of his that spoke French to a tongue speaking church, the guy got up and spoke in French and someone give an interpation. I had nothing to do with what the French guy said. Go figure.
---Rev_Herb on 4/7/06

There is Biblical basis for speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues ICor. 12:10. For the other behaviors,no. That does not mean demon possession. I don't think truly born-again persons (and most Pentecostals are) can be demon "possessed". IMHO many have been led to believe that intense emotions during worship are proof of the Holy Spirit at work. So, seeking God, they also seek an emotional "high", the expression of which the devil can use against the cause of Christ.
---Donna2277 on 4/7/06

George, what you witnessed - screaming, rolling etc, is acceptable to some as "coming from God". If the RCC states that a miracle has happened, many would attribute such sign to Satan. Go figure.

I am highly unimpressed with the theatrical nonsense that takes place at some of those so called "spirit filled" meetings.

Tounges of Today are misguided. The tounges referred to in the Bible is just a language
Acts 10:44-46 "While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. 45The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. 46For they heard them speaking in tongues[language] and praising God.

George; God is not the author of Confusion, Satan is. I haven't spoken in tongues (yet) but I have felt God's spirit flowing through me. And when I do I feel tingly, my heart beats fast, I'm hot, sweaty. God does things in order. If people are rolling around in the floor, screaming like their in torment, that can't be God. The bible says to try the spirit to see if it be of God. The next time you see this happening, ask God if it is of him, if it is or isn't he will surely let you know.

That's not a scriptural confirmation of those actions. Now you've done it, I'm going to have to go find all those passages that describe demonic posession.
---George on 4/7/06

I witnessed a Pentacostal revival and I saw people speaking in tongues and then others were interpreting what they were saying. I also saw people shaking, falling to the floor, rolling around, crawling up the aisles like snakes, and other strange things like their eyes rolling back in their heads. I researched it and the only information I could find that matched those things were books on demonic posession. I wish someone could provide scriptural proof that these things are gifts from God.

To answer the question of 'is tongues an evidence of the baptism in the holy ghost,......that should be the question, the answer is yes. This is what the apostles looked for as evidence. of 'dispensationalism', thus, shoving the occurances of the early church into the past and not taking those occurances into their own responsiblity. I'll say this to the anger of pagans who willfully disregard the believer in Christ Jesus inheritance of the batpism in the holy ghost.
---kalvin_m._lee on 4/6/06

---lovable_lindao on 4/6/06

I notice you folks try to say 1 Cor 13:10 to claim speaking in tongues doesn't exist today. Satan tried to attack Jesus by twisting scriptures and it looks as if he has confused you into twisting this one. But take heart, if he is attacking you, it is probably because you are doing God's will.

Historically speaking about Dispensationalism, (JN Darby) the gifts have ceased. See Pentecost and Chafer for the deliniation of those points.

That is why I made the question. Your statement did not compute with my understanding of Dispensationalism. Still doesn't, but that is another matter. 8-)
---John_T on 3/21/06

John T.
Any Pentecostals I know are dspensational but certainly not cessationist.
---Bruce5656 on 3/21/06

I believed you were Dispensational from your posts. Dispensational theology supports the cessationist position. That is why most Baptists reject the gifts being active today.

It is apriori thinking, meaning that where experience clashes with theology, theology rules.

As we both know, there is NO DIRECT NT EVIDENCE supporting cessationist position. They take a singular, neutral noun in 1Cor13:10 (unwarranted foundation) and build a whole systematic theology. It won't stand.

Any religious experience from God should be evidenced by a repentance of ones sinfullness. While speaking in tongues may produce a religious high, of what good is it if it does not change one's behavior into a positive direction and drive one deeper into the study of God's word?

I was not ignoring the question, I had lost track of it.

Cessationist position regarding gifts? Not at all. In fact, I am Pentecostal. What did I say that would make you think that I was cessationist?

SLCguy, Glad you're "playing in the sandbox" here. Whether it's your intention or not, you are causing many to be more diligent about knowing what they believe. There are great books out there... "Mere Christianity" -C.S. Lewis (one of my favorites), "The Cross Centered Life" and "Christ our Mediator" -C.J. Mahaney, and "Desiring God, Meditations of a Christian Hedonist" -John Piper, naming a few. Great resources I believe could edify and encourage you.

Epistemological issues are the science of learning. In that regard, I follow Locke and Edwards.
However, it seems that you follow neither. In the 2threads on LDS, you seem to have bailed when presented with empirical evidences refuting your claims.

Your philosophy of knowledge is priori in that it is dependent upon your "testimony", and everything must conform to it.
---John_T on 3/15/06

Most others hold to the posteriori view,
which typically hold that all knowledge about matters of fact derives from experience. That is the "scientific" view.

Therefore, you exhibit conflicting theories in your posts

Yes, at one time MOST colleges and universities, and most charitable institutions were faith-based. 'ALL' the major universities, Harvard, Yale were, in the beginning founded by religions. As the society becomes more secular it is less so, goverment mostly educates children, adults now. Please note; I was VERY specific as to what sect I was refering to. Down the street is a fine Baptist college, my son was born at Loma Linda, a 7th Day hospital.
---SLCGuy on 3/15/06

daphn8897-There is no question to me the Bible is inspired. With humility and a contrite heart God must be approached. Both atheism and theism are faith paradigms. I find atheism requires more faith than belief in God. "The fool in his heart says there is no God" as the scripture says. It is subjective yes, but it is a denial of objective reality to deny God, as "the heavens declare the glory of God." Too much complexity in nature, REASON ITSELF points to a a creator.

If we look in the Bible and read about tongues..we find that for awhile tongues was spoken. Later on it was not used or needed as each disciple were given a differant language, and they were sent out into the direction of the world to share their NEW language's....where certain people would be of TRUE understanding hearing their OWN language. To speak in Tongues now adays is crazy..I speak Cherokee...if I speak it to somebody in Zambodia...what would they really gain ? Nothing.

Fundamentalist Baptist, etc. believe tongues have ceased.
They base their belief on a misinterpertation of 1Cor13:10 ONLY. Literally, "When that perfect thing (gender neutral noun in Greek)is come, the imperfect is gone"
Because it is unwise to pin a doctrine on one verse, and expecially a gender neutral noun, their interpertation is isegesis, not exegesis.
No other verse in Scripture talks about cessation of the gifts, therefore their belief in that one verse saying that is spurious.
---John_T on 3/15/06

To Rebecca D., Faith and love are the best, but if you have some other gift that's fine with me but I would not believe tongues spoken today would be near as numerous spoken now as they were in the early church.

My ex-family used jargon like 'slain in the spirit-washed in the spirit-spirit filled-baptized in the spirit-seized by the spirit. Everything I saw could be explained as a Bio-chemical reaction.(as I have done here) The Bible was only used as a talisman, they had no firm epistomology, only verses strung together. They had a STRONG aversion to any secular education for their youth. Teens who were 'corrupted with secularism' were disowned, as I have read other here that have had the same experience.
