Can any of you explain to me just exactly what a "word of knowledge" or a "word of wisdom" is?
1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom, to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit,

Do you know the difference between knowledge and wisdom?
---chipper on 10/22/07


If someone had a prophecy or word of knowledge or interpretation of tongues, they tell the pastor first and he will okay that person to interrupt the order of the service. We have shouting in a corporate sense as part of a song or right after a song. Some people "amen" the pastor when he speaks but not too much. People dance sometimes and lift their hands- this is normal.

Mike your description of ETHM was not what I found ( I'm not familiar with them).
Your thoughts on the church and these groups - your lifetime scarring is indicative of someone who has suffered abuse - If this is the case I will genuinely pray for you to forgive them, God and yourself

if that makes you explode its probably time for professional help.
---Andrea on 8/29/07


MikeM., I've noticed everything you talk about is all about you, you, and more about you. You talk about yourself constantly. Is there anything else in your world besides you? Mormons are family oriented - how do you have any time for your family when all of your time is spent blogging about yourself and how martyred you are.
---Kelly on 8/29/07


Im not Mark, my real name is not MikeM. As to handmaidens I was raised in a church where they had "end time-handmaidens" Its too ghastly to talk about.

As to forgiving, I have two nieces living with us, 18- 20, both left Pentecostalism, both in college. They are still angry but have channeled it to education intellectual pursuits. Good for them.

My point about Mother Theresa, scientist, and Hitler all sharing the same eternal fate according to fundamentalist doctrine, still stands.
---MikeM on 8/28/07




MikeM. are you the Mark that wrote the ETHandmaiden articles? I think so.
---Kelly on 8/26/07


did not know it included science, and until you informed me, along wwwith Mother Theresa, scientist, and Hitler will all share the same eternal fate.
---MikeM on 8/25/07
Is this what walking away has done to you?
bitter - angry -

I don't know what your experience is with the church but I suggest you restart by forgiving and being forgiven.
just a suggestion bc your so far off --

Hollytic, Psychiatry Research, Mike M...why do you take your counsel from the "ungodly"?
I am glad to be informed that psychiatry, is of the ungodly. If science is ungodly, you best leave the internet now, as its a product of science, and you shouldent be tainted with its influence! Yes, I know Psalm 1:1-2 I did not know it included science, and until you informed me, along wwwith Mother Theresa, scientist, and Hitler will all share the same eternal fate.

Andrea, God has done most of His work in me as my eyes flow across the pages of His written word and I learn more and more of the character and nature of God through study.

1 Kings 19:12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

God was not in all the noise and excitement. He came in a still small voice.
Churches love to get excited in the flesh and have a worked up commotion but most times God is not in it.
---Chipper on 8/25/07




Psalm 1:1-2

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.

Chipper my experience is that the Holy Spirit has done His most profound work on me at home or in small quiet prayer groups. Those real life changing experiences.

The most powerful annointing I ever felt was at a Copeland Crusade - before the doors opened in the waiting area. The prayer and praise was palpable. Its been about 20 years ago and I remember it well.
---Andrea on 8/24/07


Does the Holy Spirit only MOVE when there's a lot of hoopla and worked up commotion? I've been in some of these churches where all they do is try to get the people worked up in a frenzy and get them excited in the flesh. You can get the same reaction at a ball game or a soccer or hockey game.

Actually a lot of times God is nowhere near a commotion or frenzy, but chooses to manifest Himself in a "still small voice", and quietness.
---Chipper on 8/24/07


Andrea...wow...sounds like your church is my kind of church...just throw in some dancing unto the Lord and I'm there! I actually have some flags and a tamborine in my car right now! When I lived back east (USA) there were lots of churches like that, but since the Lord moved me out here to California...those kind of churches are hard to come by...but God has lead me to a few ministries here who are truly Spirit led. The Holy Spirit is starting to move here in SoCal and I just love it!
---Holly4jc on 8/15/07


I refuse to go to any church where the Spirit is not moving. We speak in tongues all of the times, we shout, sing, play instruments. Word of knowledge. We do it all. There are no limits. You can't box God in. Iron sharpens iron. I love seeing others praise God. I catch fire from them. I love my church.

I go to an independent pentecostal church
we sing praise about Him and the kids walk around and we have flags and banners - a visitor I took one day said "I went to church and a renaissance fair broke out"

Then we have teaching then we worship

next post please
---Andrea on 8/14/07


Praise is about Him and yes we may shout and praise spontaneously 'a joyful noise'
worship is to Him - now things get more suttle and the kids are in Sunday school -
this is when a word of prophecy may come out. This happens sometimes two or three times sometomes not for a month. If someone wants to stand or kneel at their chairs or at the alter it is repsected.
The pastor gives a few teachings - sometimes prepared sometimes led by the Spirit


why? does everyone do it this way?

Chip yes of course I'm aware.
and I don't believe all will speak in tongues it is not a requirement of salvation.
Tongues is not the gift - the Holy Spirit is the gift - tongues is an evidence of the Baptism in the HS it is not the only evidence.
so again I say read I Cor 9-14 bc i think we need to see the whole picture in context

Andrea: Are you aware that this "tongues" movement is not exclusive to the pentacostal type churches? It has been found in the catholic church as well as Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist and in many other religions around the world.

If speaking in tongues is a prerequisite for membership into Christ, then I fear many are not going to make it because most christian churches do not promote "tongues".
---Chipper on 8/13/07


Chipper, please read the Bible. Try Acts and Cor. It was necessary for Jesus to go - that the Comforter may come. The Comforter was the Holy Spirit. If you do not want to speak in tongues - your choice, but there is no scriptural evidence for cessationism. Sorry folks, God gave you a very special gift it must be recieved to be used. Please get some good teaching before you make your decision.
---Andrea on 8/4/07


Matthew_from_LA:
The point is that if "speaking in tongues" was so important, then why do we not see Jesus teaching it?
Jesus "DID" take a bowl of water and wash the disciples feet and gave that as an example for them to do.
Does your church have "feet washing" services? Seems to me that humility is a greater virtue than pride.
---Chipper on 7/29/07


When I pray in tongues it is to pray God's will in a situation only God knows. It's about obedience and His love working in my life. my church is small enough that someone jumping up and praising God is great - we rejoice that they are so happy to be in the Lord. If I jumped up and said "GO EAGLES' EVERYONE ON MY STREET WOULD SHOUT WITH ME. Why so little joy in our churches. I took a friend to church and she said she thought a Renaissance(sp) fair broke out.

*Hmmm it looks like according to this verse that it's a GREATER thing to PROPHESY than to speak in tongues.*

Yes it is Chipper. It's because prophesy dosn't require interpretation. What is your point?
---Matthew_from_LA on 7/27/07


"you need only believe and ask. But you need to keep asking....et al...."

Frank, you received what you asked for when you prayed. Father says so. However, the manifestation took place when you yielded and spoke. The Holy Ghost gives the utterance but we must speak...and we are given that utterance when we ask. Many times it is the doctrines and traditions of men that we have believed that cause delay of manifestation. Fear of counterfeit is only one of those doctrines.
---Linda on 7/27/07


There are many others, including the doctrine that we must tarry and be diligent. I know you are thinking, "Well, they had to tarry in Jerusalem until the Holy Ghost came". You have to realize that that day was a fulfillment of the Feast of Pentecost (reccognized by the Jews) and had to take place 50 days after Jesus rose from the dead, otherwise the Jews wouldn't have recognized it as Pentecost.
---Linda on 7/27/07


The word "seek" in Hebrews does not mean "keep asking" over and over. It means to "crave". Look it up in the Greek. Asking is not the fruit of believing. Receiving is the fruit of believing...and when you receive (reach out and take it), the manifestation is there.

Look at the words "rather" and "greater"

Hmmm it looks like according to this verse that it's a GREATER thing to PROPHESY than to speak in tongues.
---Chipper on 7/27/07


In 1Corinthians 12 Paul listed the 9-gifts OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. In Chapter 14, notice he said, "he who speaks in an unknown tongue.." Also he said, in verse 14, " my spirit prays..."

A spirit-filled believer can pray in tongues anytime he or she wants to, but no believer can operate in the Holy Spirit's gifts whenever we want to. They are His gifts.

But me speaking in tongues is not His gift. It's my spirit praying.

Hope this helps.
---Rickey on 7/18/07


In Chapter 12 tongues there requires interpretation. It is usually another language spoken like grk. or hebrew.

When I was 19, as I yieled to the Holy Spirit in service I could literally feel His presence & the unction to speak. THe tongues that I spoke were hebrew. Then someone else interpretted. That is an example of tongues in chpat. 12.

Now if could speak in tongues right here as I will. That is what chapter 14 is referring to.
---Rickey on 7/18/07


In regards to tongues...

1 Corinthians 14:28
But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church, and let him speak to himself, and to God.

1 Corinthians 14:27
If any man speak in a tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course, and let one interpret.

1 Corinthians 14:13
Wherefore let him that speaketh in a tongue pray that he may interpret.
---Matthew_from_LA on 7/18/07

Why are tongues unedifying unless one interprets? Because most tongues are not understood by man and they need an interpetot.


1 Corinthians 14:5
I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

An interpretor is not one who understands the languauge but rather one who is given the gift of interpretation.(1 Corinthians 12:10)
---Matthew_from_LA on 7/18/07


Faith:
I have said before that the miracle was in the "hearing" and not the "speaking".
Evidently the Holy Ghost translated the 16 different languages that came from the speakers, as the sound went into the ears of the hearers.
---Chipper on 7/18/07


Sorry Ricky, misread your post, but my question is still, how do you come to the conclusion that Paul speaks of two different tongues in I Cor.? And are we now talking about 3 different kinds of tongues. Question also still stands on why the pentecostal religion does not advocate the same type of tongues that took place on the day of Pentecost.
---faith on 7/18/07


Please give evidence, with scripture references, how the tongues in Acts and I Cor. are different. If you are correct, then there must be 3 different kinds of tongues and not just two. Also, if that's the case, then why aren't Pentecostals practicing the type of tongues that they have named their religion after?

In the OT they were not born-again & God had not poured out His Spirit. In Joel 2 it was told what He was going to do on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2.

Tongues in 1Corinthians 12 is totally different from what Paul was talking about in chapter 14.
---Rickey on 7/17/07


There were tongues in the old testament. That's actually where tongues (translated properly as other languages) really started. Babel. Biblical tongues are simply another language. An earthly language. They were used as a sign to the Jews in Jerusalem. -They were devout jews, from 16 nations, heard them in their own language. They were not doing what we hear going on today. There were actually results in the book of Acts. People were saved.

If speaking in tongues was so important as you people claim, then why didn't Jesus Himself teach it and tell us to seek after this gift? They never spoke in tongues in the Old Testament.
Most times when tongues are perportedly being spoken, it's in a group of other professing christians and most times by women ... who were to keep silent in the church.

There are 10 "gifts" of the spirit mentioned in I Corinthians 12.

The gifts are distributed to the saints as the Holy Spirit wills.
Not everyone has or will have all of the 9 gifts.
Not everyone will speak in tongues.
Not everyone will be able to interpret tongues.
Not everyone will prophecy.
Not everyone will heal.
Not eveyone will have a word of wisdom.
Not everyone will have a word of knowledge.
Not everyone will be able to discern spirits.
Not everyone will be able to work miracles.

You must have tongues to go to heaven is false doctrine is given only to some.

Chipper what do you think? ONLY during private worship and at Church will the Holy Spirit move to speak in tongues. If you see anyone speaking in tongues uncontrollably while doing normal daily activites you can bet it is not the Holy Spirit, Chipper. Another warning Chipper there are true tongue speakers out there Chipper and if you continue making the claim "no one speaks in true tongues today" you risk blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Mocking them makes it even more likely you will.
---Matthew on 7/12/07


Chipper, you've witnessed false tongues and have been approached by false tongue speakers telling you lies like "You must speak in tongues to be saved." "I can teach you how to speak in tongues." God is a God of order. This is why tongues is only done during worship(public must have an interpretor!) and by the unction of the Holy Spirit. I believe you have never witnessed true tongues Chipper(most are false). Ignorance, however, won't be an excuse for blaspheming. My final warning.
---Matthew on 7/12/07


*And Jesus gave some the gift of tongues, prophecy, interpretation of tongues, etc. NOT EVERYONE.*


Amen. The doctrine that says "You must speak in tongues to be saved" is a false and damnable doctrine. It is an addition to the Word and it leads to false tongues(glossolalia) or even worse an evil Spirit speaking in tongues.
---Matthew on 7/12/07


Matthew can you show scripturally that tongues are only as the Holy Spirit wills?

Jude 20 says, " building YOURSELVES up on YOUR most holy faith praying in the Holy Spirit."

In 1Corinthians 14:2 "For he who speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not to men, but to God"

IThess. 5:23 show that you are a spirit, have a soul, & are in a body.
When you pray in tongues your spirit prays(1Cor. 14:14)

Hope this helps.

How does it start? Do you do it, or does it just all of a sudden come out of your mouth?
What is your purpose for speaking in the "unknown language"?
---Chipper on 7/12/07


And Jesus gave some the gift of tongues, prophecy, interpretation of tongues, etc. NOT EVERYONE. Satan blinds many to the truth of Jesus Christ. we pray to God, not man. we love God with all our hearts so we can return to him. many profess him and then go out commiting evil acts daily. are they saved, NO. they deceive themselves. we change from within and avoid evil. if I commit adultery, lie, swear, worship idols, I will be cast out. Jesus said no one doing those things will inherit his kingdom.
---Lori on 7/11/07


Chipper, you need only believe and ask. But you need to keep asking. Many ask once and when they don't get it give up. The word says that he is a rewarder of those diligently seek him. I prayed for the baptism of the Holy Ghost and evidence of speaking in tongues for a year until I received. it was worth the wait and belief. Many who received it right away without diligence and accused me of having no faith to get it soon fell away. They didn't have to believe and be diligent.

I have spoken in tongues about 6 times since conversion, Chipper ,all by the unction of the Holy Spirit and the will of the Holy Spirit. Anyone who says they can teach you tongues is a liar. Tongues is a given gift and can only be spoken by the Holy Spirit's will and not our own. I am very against people who do it "whenever they want" for they speak in false tongues.
---Matthew on 7/11/07


*Are only "tongues" speakers going to heaven?*

No Chipper it is a false doctrine. Tongues is a gift and NOT a requirement of salvation.

Does the HG speak it through you? Is it a lot of sounds coming from your mouth that are not understood by those around you?

Yes the Holy Ghost speaks through you, and for the next question I don't ever do it in public because the Holy Spirit never spoke through me in public probably because there is never an interpretor.

2)
I tell you the truth, Chipper, most who speak in tongues speak in false tongues. There are different tongues Chipper. The tongues at pentecost were unique and DID NOT need interpretation.

*Can you explain to me just what this "unknown" tongue is?*

Normally a tongue that cannot be understood by man(tongues of angels is likely). Paul talked about speaking in the tongues of angels.

The tongues spoken on Pentecost is the rarest form. These happen more often when witnessing in foreign countries.

Chipper if all tongues were like the tongues on Pentecost then no interpretation would be needed. Yet Paul spoke many times about needing an interpretor when speaking in tongues. Why, if everybody hears it in their own tongue? That's why there are different tongues.

Leland:
Paul was definately a "tongues" person... I think you already kow this, hence the trapping question.

There were 120 people in the upper room. Men and women. Mary the mother of Jesus was one of those women. They all recieved the baptism of the Holy Ghost and begin to speak in tongues. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is a promise of a new power coming from the divine spirit, giving not only comfort and insight into truth but fresh powers of utterence of some kind appears in our Lord's teachings.
