Daune,thank you for saying you believe there are some who speak in tongues. You added there "are few" therefore I want to share this,there are One Half Billion Pentecostals/Charismatics who speak in tongues. They are the second largest denomination in the world. That is not to mention all the Roman Catholics,Baptist,and other denominations which don't report that members speak in tongues and in fact don't usually know they do. The tongues at the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is not the gift of experience,the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is the Gift read Acts 2. The tongues received then is the evidence. The Gift of Tongues is entirely different and used in Body/church ministry and must have interpretation,Read the 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.

I question many who claim to speak in tongues but believe there are some (but few) that have this gift or experience.

[Denom] TONGUES is about language not a superficial "experience" as the ignorantly deceived profess and their chaotic show and the empty thrill from a crowd is a demonstration they do not having sound mind
---Rhonda on 2/10/12

agreed. when i give my son a bicycle as a gift, i did not see him practicing before I gave it.

and, how do you practice something that you do not know about until it happens like the apostles at the day of Pentecost?
---aka on 2/11/12


Remember what was happening as you read the bible when the desciples started speaking in tongues as referenced in the bible. When the holy spirit came upon them which in reality is the "Will" of Yashua. They started speaking in toungues of known launuages at the time. Remember that everything Yashua does has order and understanding. Yahsua's will was for his desciples to go out and proclaim the good news. Folks you really need to quit being spoon fed. It is written that " they heap for themselves teachers with iching ears. Which means the people lift up false teachers to have them tell them what they want to hear. This is false teaching. Read for yourself do not have so-called leaders fleece you like sheep.

Rhonda //today the nonsensical babblings of men and women who are high on religion babbling incoherent gibberish sounds is not the spiritual GIFT of tongues as given by GOD and described in ACTS

Largely true as there are many especially in the Pentecostal denominations that think they have the gift of tongues but really do not. I have heard it both ways but more so as gibberish.

The is nothing in the Bible that says any of the spiritual gifts have vanished as we see them throughout church history.

The greater problem I see with those who claim they speak in tongues is their lack of understanding of God's word and often their immoral lifestyle.

Any legit experience with the Lord should drive one more into His word.

duane//We should not judge if a person can speak in tongues or not. Its not our place to judge on this issue.
If God wants HIS son or daughter to speak in tongues, what is it to anyone?
---
And if we accept the totality of Scripture, the Spirit through the Apostle Paul states "Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy."
1 Cor. 14:5

I have nothing against those who have experienced this but question if those who claim to speak in tongues actually have that gift.

The Bible is very clear that speaking in tongues is speaking a known language, one that is understood to edify the listener, the speaker, or both. When someone speaks a tongue, it is unknown sounds that may edify the speaker only. Paul does not condemn tongue, but suggests it can cause confusion.
---Eunice on 2/9/12




babbling is from Satan this is when someone makes sounds from their mouth that are not from any KNOWN language...as stated in GODS HOLY word in the book of ACTS
---Rhonda on 2/9/12

From the Bible, in most cases the speaker of the tongue does not know if what they are saying is a language or not. Only the hearers and the people with interpretation may know that.

It seems in Acts 19:1-7 the interpretation of the tongues was not known, only that they were speaking with tongues. We are given no indication in Scripture that the tongue was in a language understood by the hearers.

Also if anyone spoke with the tongue of angels, no one on Earth would be able to understand. Yet, we have it as an illustration in 1 Cor 13.
---Mark_Eaton on 2/9/12


\\a TRUE manifestation of speaking in tongues would be to have someone who is speaking in a KNOWN foreign language yet those who HEAR him are HEARING him in their own language \\

In other words, it's not a gift of tongues, but a gift of ears.

Is this what you're saying, Rhonda?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 2/9/12


On the day of Pentecost the Apostles did not have to "practice"

one has to PRACTICE speaking a foreign language of which all of MANS languages are known to other men

speaking in tongues today is a GIMMICK and from Satan who blinds many into believing their false ministers who DUPE them with nonsense babblings

babbling is from Satan this is when someone makes sounds from their mouth that are not from any KNOWN language

Angela, since you say you said,

"This was a message from GOD and I felt truly honored to have witness it and be one of the people the message was given to"

Can you tell us what the message was from God, so that you can reveal it to your brothers and sisters? Or were you told not to reveal it to anyone? And was that person who spoke in tongues, from another country? A country that you don't understand their language? Or was it someone from your church? I would like to hear what your answers are.

Practising speaking in tongues is an unbiblical act, resist such temptation. Speaking in tongues is 1 of many ways of manifestation of God in the life of a believer, it is never prompted or triggered by man's effort.
---Adetunji on 1/24/12


I had my first experience with speaking in tongues this Sunday. I had prevously thought it would be scary. This was the most amazing thing. A man stood and spoke clearly in a strange language. Quietness fell over the church and someone on the other side of the church stood up and interepeted it. When this truly happens there is no question. This was a message from GOD and I felt truly honored to have witness it and be one of the people the message was given to. GOD bless you all!!
---Angela on 1/23/12


Holy Spirit is ubiquitous in God's dealings with man since God originally formed, made and created man with body, soul and spirit. In His dealings with man, operating the power of God has been dependent upon the presence of Holy Spirit.

In the OT:1 Samuel 10:10 When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him, the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in their prophesying.

The operation of spirit is spoken of in the context of the future age(s) of the Book of Revelation.

Paul stated that he spoke with tongues more than all the other believers put together. If I was allowed the space I could definitively share much more from the Word of God. Do not ignore Paul's teaching on this important subject.
---Rob on 10/22/08


Acts 8 mention no tongues with the people from Samaria, no wind, no fire no tongues.

With Saul's filling, the Holy Spirit is also conspicuously silent.

This didn't become a doctrine as we know it until l901. Before this, church history has absolutely no such record or teaching - not from the apostles, not from the early church fathers ....

Do you really believe that no man had experienced the genuine Spirit Baptism until 1901 in Topeka, Kansas?

Also the man who coined this phrase also taught that America and England were one of the Lost 10 Tribes of Israel.

You don't pratice speaking in tongue's Whe God gives you his spirt thats when you speak in tongue And when we pray in Tongue's Satan does not know what we are praying
---Betty on 8/14/08


Speaking in tongues was a spiritual gift used for spreading the word of God prior to the Word being written.

1 cor 13:8-10 says, 8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail, whether there be tongues, they shall cease, whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

The Gift of tongues is no longer given.

God is truth and He keeps nothing hidden. A tongue is a language. English, spanish, hebrew etc. Speaking in tongues means having the ability to communicate in multiple languages. Anything else which is not understood is blabbering.
---Ken on 8/12/08


there is tongues and "other tongues", I spoke few words in tongues...never forced upon me but the words came, you just speak it.

someone stated what if you are actually really cursing God and its from Satan...well, if your posssessed then yeah, demons can also speak through the person. However, if demons can do that, why not the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 14:2 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.

Mima, you stated that you pray in an tongue unkonw to you or anyone here on earth.

If you don't know what you are praying, how do you know that you are not cursing God and praising Satan?

If you examine what is written in Acts Chapter 2, those who were speaking knew what they were saying, and those who heard understood what was being spoken, because it was spoken in their native language, and not some unknown tongue.

Here is good advice from Matthew,

"Go in your room and read your Word praying for God to teach you all things through His Word."
---Mima on 8/6/08


To the Moderator: If anything I said was not untruthfull then why would you not put it? Jesus said the gift of the Holy Spirit is not for the World but for those who know Him, therefore it is true(john 14:17) We know that John was not Baptized in the Holy Spirit when he was in Elizabeth's womb, because Jesus said the gift of the Holy Spirit can only come after he dies(John 7:39) Therefore, when people are filled with the Holy Ghost before Jesus' death it is not the same thing as what the Apostles experienced at Pentecost.

The gift of tongues is given, not learned. It is not guaranteed for every believer. You can't practice it since the gift of tongues is the Holy Spirit speaking. Teachers will tell you, "speak without of thinking of anything to say, and you will say unintelligible words, this is the gift of tongues." If you are the one doing the speaking and the Holy Spirit has not taken control of your mouth then you are not speaking in Biblical tongues.
---Matthew_from_LA on 8/4/08


3)
If you desire the truth, then run to Jesus to be your pastor and guide you in His Word. Pray for all wisdom and understanding for most churches are filled with false teachers. Go in your room and read your Word praying for God to teach you all things through His Word. Only God knows what he meant in His Word. God will never contradict His written Word. Read (1 John 2:27). The most spiritually wise and mature are those who spend a lot of timing reading and depending on God to reveal His truth to them. In this day and age when so many false doctrines have crept into this Church, this is a must.
---Matthew_from_LA on 8/4/08


4)
James 1:5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.

So let's do this. If we lack wisdom in a matter let's pray for God to give it to us.
---Matthew_from_LA on 8/4/08


Receiving a prayer language is so that the born again believer can pray with spiritual power both in the manner of praising God, intercessory prayer for others, spiritual warfare, etc. Its one of several gifts that the Believer should seek. They are gifts from God and empowered to the Believer beginning with the Pentecostal experience of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This is a separate experience from the altar call and water baptism. This was most evident in the Book of Acts. When people try to theologize or explain the praying in tongues, they are taking a simple spiritual gift of God and choking it out with theology and religious explanation. Remember the Gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.

I received the gift of tongues, while praying in church one the Wednesday evening. And that's what I have. A prayer language. I have never delivered a message for the church, but many times when I'm praying I pray in a tongue unknown to me or anyone else here on Earth.
I do not believe practicing before you receive.
I do not believe in holding classes about speaking in tongues.
Many people have asked me how to receive tongues I have no answer. But when you receive you will receive.
---Mima on 8/4/08


Well, I have news for you. When God gives you spiritual gifts you have them. You do not need to practice before you get them. However, God does expect you to use them, or you could lose them. I believe I saw that concept somewhere! Unbelievers, or your hypocrites who's only wearing the christian name, somehow seems to be able to pull it off. I would not want to be in their shoes on Judgment Day. "The great Judgment Day", as God calls it. Have a great week-end everyone. One more thing. I have a very close relative who went to class to learn how to cast demons out of people. She is not saved. My Lord and my God give me strength. I must ask her sometimes how she is doing with this ungifted gift?

I was baptized in Gods Holy Spirit at the age of 12. I didn't know that "speaking in tongues" would follow that experience but when I opened my mouth to say something a language came out that I had never heard before. I thought that I has said curse words so I ran to my room and hid in the closet. The gentleman who prayed for my baptism came and explained (through my closet door) what had taken place. I now pray in the Spirit continually (as Jesus direct to do in 1 Thess)and have become closer to Jesus and His will than ever before.
---Gabriel on 7/30/08


Jay, tongues have not ceased. The scripture reference you refer to in I Corinthians chapter 13, verse 8 that says "...whether there be tongues, they shall cease..." and later in the 10th verse says "But when that which is perfect shall come, then that which is in part shall be done away." Jesus had come, walked as an example, performing miracles, died for our sins, and had risen for our justification before Paul, (formerly Saul) wrote this scripture. So the reference to "when that which is perfect shall come" in verse 10 refers to when Jesus returns for the church, there'll be no need for these gifts to edify the church because we will forever be with the Lord!!(I Thessalonians chapter 4, verses 16-17)

A relative of mine was given the gift of speaking in tongues and, at the same time, her friend was able to interpret them. Some time later a missionary came to stay with my relative. She, her friend and the missionary were praying together one night when my relative started praying in tongues. Her friend's interpretation was not needed because this language happened to be the mother tongue of her guest missionary.

There are 6800 living languages in world,languages spoken as 1st language for 1 person or more. There's numerous dead languages from around the world which aren't spoken now. There isn't any person here who knows all languages living and dead, therefore, there is no one with the expertise to judge which tongues spoken by HG, through Christens, are or are not a real language. Until one knows every language their judgement has no truth or validity to it. They speak opinions without facts to back them up.

Nyte,

For all your protests to the contrary, Paul said 1 Corinthians 14:2, "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."

So, while there are examples both ancient and modern of tongues that are understood by other people, it is not always the case.

[9] Father's Word dispels speaking in tongues as church houses profess to do today. All one needs to remember is that tongues mean languages and if you do not understand what someone is babbling, it is not of God, but of satan, who loves keeping Father's children within a maze of confusion. At the appointed time when this takes place, it will be the elect having the unction of the Holy Spirit who shall bring forth a supernatural act which shall be of Father God.
---Nyte on 6/17/06


[8] Read Revelation 9:5 & 10. It is during this five month reign of the anti-christ, being the only hour where the elect can commit the unforgivable sin. This is the only sin for which there is no repentance and can only be committed by the elect of Father God, which is to deny the Holy Spirit to speak through them at the appointed time, which is to come, rejecting the evidence of the presence of our Father God.

[7] Mark 13:11 says,"But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit." The hour spoken of here is that hour of temptation taught in Revelation 17:12 when satan as the anti-christ sets his throne of deception upon this earth, deceiving with his religious beast system.

[6] Mark 13:9 & 11 says, "But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them." "And the gospel must first be published among all nations."
Beaten is not physical but a mental or brow beating as satan and his hallelujah corner try to persuade the chosen to be deceived, which will not happen.

[3] When you witness what sounds like babble, that is exactly what it is, confusion which is of satan. Evidence of the Holy Spirit is when one is speaking by Father God, every nation or language of the world can understand the teachings in their own dialects, without an interpreter.

[2] Acts 2:6 says, "Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language."

[1 of 9] Speaking in tongues [chanting], meaning babble that is not understood, is not Biblical or spiritual.

The idea that you can be taught to speak in tongues is false and right out of the pit of hell. When the gift of tongues falls on you you may need to put your hand over your mouth depending where this takes place. Several times I have had tongues almost jumped out of my mouth while in conversation with someone about God. At other times it feels like water bubbling up inside you and then coming out, but not without your release.
---mima on 6/17/06


Rev Herb--I don't watch TBN..too much baloney. Nobody needs to be "taught" how to speak in tongues. Those who think they can "learn" it are not "speaking as GOD gives them utterance". On the other hand, God does not "take over", causing a person to involuntarily speak in tongues.One is still able to decide when or when not to speak. That's why rules were given in I Cor. All too often, IMHO, the rules are ignored or not taught at all, causing a misuse of the gift.

Speaking in tongues is as "you will". Jude 20 tells us to build our ownselves up on our most holy faith praying in the Holy Spirit. Paul said it best when he said,"For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful." IThessalonians 5:23 lets us know we are a spirit, have a soul(mind, will, emotions), and are in a body. Genesis 1:26 and John 4:24 lets us know we are a spirit.

There was someone on TBN that was teaching you how to speak in tongues. So if you don't know how to speak in tongues TBN can teach you. It is funny though, the bible says they spoke when God gave them utterance. If that be the case, I am susprised of the people that can speak in tongues at will.

Why doesn't the Holy Spirit give us the gift of speaking Hebrew or Greek? Maybe He has given this gift to somebody, sometime. I have no way of knowing. But you are not asking because you care, or are really interested. I think you just enjoy setting up Pentecostals so you can amuse yourself by shooting them down.

Practicing speaking in tongues would mean that it is something YOU'RE in control of and doing yourself. The EVIDENCE of speaking other tongues is just that: EVIDENCE, of what's going on inside when the Holy Ghost fills a person. People who practice or TEACH others "how to speak in tongues" are worshiping the evidence, the physical reaction, more than the actual supernatural work of the Holy Ghost

Dear Lord in Heaven have mercy!!! You never have to practice tongues. That is a lie of Satan that seems to be growing in popularity,however, it isn't anything but your tongue moving and air going through your vocal cords that you contribute to speaking in tongues. It is the Holy Ghost anointing and speaking through you that gives the words. The only thing you must "practice" is surrendering to God to let the HG use you. Obedience to God's will for you.
