Many even religious persons, people are falsely trying to reach Heaven, serve God in their own efforts neglect God’s provisions for them, God’s spiritual gifts. if you oppose tongues you are not even a Christian led by the holy Spirit. and that is your main problem still.. not being filled with the Holy Spirit.. You do need to learn what sins are holding you back from this…
what you cannot interpret the Bible properly? it is cause you are very carnal… very Carnal.. you say …””Tongues have ceased. 1 Cor. 13″”” When the perfect is come, Jesus Christ then toungues will cease, but he has not yet come back..Read the Bible, stop listening to the lies of men…
”The Boogeyman Called “False Tongues” By Mel C. Montgomery Of all the empty arguments offered by Cessationists, it is hard to find anything more bizarre than their claim of the existence of “false tongues.” This doctrine is the new Boogeyman. The Boogeyman exists only in the imaginations of immature minds. Cessationists start from the false premise that genuine speaking in tongues ceased upon the death of the last apostle. I have soundly disproven this starting point in my article, “Tongues Throughout Church History,” I show from ancient Christian documents that speaking in tongues and other gifts of the Spirit continued on for several centuries after the last apostle died, and have frequently re-appeared in times of great revival up to this day. Here is why I do not believe in the existence of “false tongues”:
First, the Bible makes no mention of false tongues. The Bible warns of false prophets, false apostles, false teachers, false Christs, and false accusers, but there is no warning of “false tongues.”
Second, among Paul’s specific instructions concerning speaking in tongues at Corinth, he does not question the validity of the tongues themselves, nor does he instruct us to do so either.
Third, if a false speaking in tongues does exist, which is inspired by the indwelling presence of an evil spirit, I believe such tongues would be impossible for a Christian to receive. As Christians, we are the temple of the Living God (II Cor. 6:16), and the Spirit of God dwells in us (Rom. 8:11). If evil spirits in the demon possessed could not tolerate the presence of Christ in his earthly ministry, I do not believe a tongues-inspiring evil spirit can cohabit with the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s heart.
Fourth, Jesus Christ gave us a specific promise that if we asked the Heavenly Father for the Holy Spirit, we would not receive a serpent or a scorpion–symbols of evil spirits–but we would receive the Holy Spirit. “…how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”–Luke 11:13. I do not believe that Christ’s promise has failed 537 million times. I do not believe that 537 million Christians asked for this manifestation of the Holy Spirit, and that God stood idly by and allowed them to receive 537 million demons.
Fifth, there are no known reports of any manifestations of speaking in tongues in Christian churches that are clearly identifiable as “false tongues.” I have spoken and interpreted public messages in tongues countless times now for 17 years. Never once has an interpretation included, “Praise Satan!” Or, “Jesus be accursed!”
Not once…in thousands of occurrances…In 17 years. Sixth, all interpretations of tongues I have witnessed, participated in, or of which I am aware, always glorify Jesus Christ, extoll Christ’s victory over Satan, and exhort Christians to live holy lives and obey God’s written Word. No manifestations of “false tongues,” inspired by evil spirits, would do so.
The following is an excellent example of the content of messages in tongues:
A highly-placed Southern Baptist official told me that some years ago, Billy Graham had been invited to speak to an assembly of students at an Assemblies of God College.
Billy Graham was on a very tight schedule. He had just enough time for his plane to land, then to travel to the seminary, speak, and then rush to catch his next plane. And as if that wasn’t difficult enough, Billy Graham’s plane landed late.
He was rushed to the seminary. He quickly spoke his message to the students, and concluded. He left the microphone and was several feet away, when someone stood up and spoke a message in tongues. Billy stopped and listened. A moment later, another student stood up and gave the interpretation.
Billy returned to the microphone and said:
“I was pressed for time today. And the message I gave you actually had four points to it. I had only enough time to give you the first two points. That message in tongues, just gave you the last two points of my message.”
And he rushed out to catch his plane.
Are we to believe that an evil spirit was courteous enough to quietly attend this meeting and then finish Billy Graham’s message for him?
Has Satan joined God’s evangelistic team?
Seventh, we have no reports of false tongues, inspired by evil spirits, manifesting among the unsaved, and in places of false religion and sin. False tongues have not appeared in houses of prostitution, casinos, Jehovah’s Witnesses meetings, or at the Playboy Mansion.
Speaking in tongues occurs exclusively in Christian churches. They involve only Born-again Christians. The content of the messages glorify Jesus Christ. These occur only as Christians praise, worship, and pray to the Heavenly Father.
It is a considerable stretch to believe that such manifestations could be anything but genuinely inspired by the Holy Spirit.”
As of the year 2,000 a.d., 537 million born-again Christians speak in tongues. This is 30% to 40% of the Body of Christ. http://www.brothermel.org/
We have done miracles in thy name.. they had claimed Jesus next never denied their claim, and never accused that, said that their gifts were false.. the gifts were genuine.. rather it was the persons themselves who were false.. pretenders, imposter Christians and that is true today as well.. Depart me from me he Jesus next said for I do not know you..”
As I see it.. Most professing Christians firstly only receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and not the Sole Lord of their life and that is their first error.. Acts 11:17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? (Acts 2:38). 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Acts 2:4; 10:46; and 19:6 On these three occasions speaking in tongues is the evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit. Paul says, “I wish that you all spoke in tongues” (1 Corinthians 14:5). it is the Fools also who do not know the difference between speaking in toungues in a public assembly now and praying in toungues in one’s personal llfe.. While we may not all speak in toungues in an assembly, we can all pray toungues personally.. and should.. Forget the Human reasons and logic.. and the demonic liars who falsely have to explain everything away… what does the Holy Spirit say about it himself, today? SPEAKING IN TONGUES- is ONE of the evidence NOT the PRIMARY EVIDENCE of Baptism in the Holy Spirit according to you now and not really according to God? .. like I said in the book of Acts everyone who was baptized with Holy Spirit spoke in tongue’s so how come not today? The book of Acts records two other occasions on which the Holy Spirit caused people to speak in tongues, and in his letter to the church at Corinth, the apostle Paul gave instructions about speaking in tongues.It is absurd also to hear someone teach, claim to be an expert on toungues who themselves have never spoke in toungues or prayed in toungues now too.. Likely the same people who never had a seperate experience of the Baptism of the holy Spirit now too.. Pentecostal churches teach that Christians receive the Holy Spirit when they are first converted, but that they are not filled with the Spirit until they have made jesus Christ as Lord and are baptized with the Holy Spirit. This baptism of the Spirit is also now considered necessary for salvation, and all people are encouraged to seek it in order also to receive additional power to witness, If you reject the holy spirit you are rejecting Jesus..
Too many even professing Christian persons are still parrots, they have not really read the Bible for themselves, they really do not know the Bible or God for that matter still too.. they are repeating what others have told them, and too often it is distorted truths, lies.. and that is so really true when it comes to speaking in toungues,,, notice how the toungues hater clearly show their lack of reality of faith in God…..When someone receives the Holy Spirit and “speaks in tongues” it is a spiritual language, and there is a reason for it. It has a purpose, a use, as an incredibly useful tool — and the Bible gives a lot of information about its use Realize that it is the Holy Spirit which gives the words which you speak and not you yourself: Use speaking in tongues to edify yourself or build yourself up: spiritually. This is not a selfish thing, but rather the purpose is that when you are built up in the your spirit then you can build up or encourage others. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 1 Corinthians 14:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2: Don’t all speak in tongues at once, but instead only up to 3 people can use speaking in tongues in any meeting and each one who should be followed by an interpretation (given by God to another member). Everything should be done decently and in order (with courtesy for example) and tongues should not be forbidden from meetings. 1 Corinthians 14:23-27 and 39-40
God has given us the gift to speak in a language we do not know by human means. This is a gift of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12:10) and therefore of great help to us. Paul said: “Thank God, I speak in tongues more than any of you” (1 Cor 14:18). Through the gift of tongues, the Lord builds us up (1 Cor 14:4), enables us to utter “mysteries in the Spirit” (1 Cor 14:2), and empowers us to thank and praise Him (1 Cor 14:16-17). The Word of God teaches that when we are filled with the Holy Ghost, we speak with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance. Speaking in tongues is an initial evidence, or sign, of the baptism of the Holy Spirit: “And they were all FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, and began to SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4). GIFT OF TONGUES ( Plural) Then this is the personal prayer language of praying in toungues.. which I also do and next I do pray for the English interpretation.. When in private, I use “speaking in tongues” as Paul appreciated the benefit of speaking in tongues; that’s why he said, “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:” 1 Corinthians 14:18
And how many of you do also pray in toungues? not just speak in toungues? let’s me pray what I need to pray.. for instance I had been having a memory loss and as I prayed in toungues and when i next got the English interpretation of it God told me it was the devil trying to take away my memory.. so I know now how to pray about it.. I prayed in toungues over a neighbour and the English interpretation was this.. “Daughter I hear the prayers of others praying for you but I would like to hear your own prayers to me” FOR ALL OF YOU MUCH LEAREND PERSONS THERE IS SPEAKING IN TOUNGUES AND PRAYIN TOUNGIES.. WHEN ONE SPEAKS IN TOUNGUES SOME ONE ELSE INTERPTRETS AND I HAVE DONE THAT NOW MANY TIMES.. for example the pastor gave a sermon,, someone next spoke in toungues and I gave an interpretation.. it was this..” my servant has delivered my message faithfully, and next I had called you to repentance, yet none of you had come forth, shall I now openly mention your sins to all? I had a vision of which persons sins were.. speaking with tongues keeps us continually aware of the Holy Spirit’s indwelling Presence. Not only is speaking with tongues the initial sign or evidence of the Holy Spirit’s infilling, but continuing to pray and to worship God in tongues helps us to be ever-conscious of His indwelling Presence. And if you are conscious of the indwelling Presence of the Holy Ghost every day, that is bound to affect the way you think and live. Speaking in tongues eliminates the possibility of selfishness entering our prayer life. For instance, if I pray a prayer out of my own mind and out of my own thinking, it may be unscriptural. It may be selfish.
Paul wrote to the Church at Rome, “We know not what we should pray for as we ought. . .” (Rom. 8:26). He didn’t say we didn’t know how to pray, because we are instructed to pray to the Father in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 16:23–24).
But just because I know how to pray doesn’t mean that I know what to pray for as I ought. So Paul said, “We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself [Himself] maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Rom. 8:26).
The Holy Ghost is not going to do our praying for us. He is sent to help us pray. Speaking with other tongues is praying as the Spirit gives utterance. It is Spirit-directed praying. And it eliminates the possibility of selfishness in our prayers. The Bible says, “Building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” (Jude 20).
Speaking in tongues stimulates faith and helps us learn how to trust God more fully. For example, faith must be exercised to speak with tongues because the Holy Spirit supernaturally directs the words we speak. You see, we don’t know what the next word will be—we have to trust God for that. And trusting God in one area helps us learn to trust Him in another area. As i said praying in tongues it provides a way for you to pray about things that you wouldn’t think to pray about or aren’t even aware of. We already know that the Holy Spirit helps us pray for particular situations when we don’t know how to pray about those situations. In addition, the Holy Spirit, Who knows everything, can pray things through us for things about which our natural mind knows nothing. James 3:8. “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison,” Yielding your tongue to the Holy Spirit to speak with other tongues is a big step toward being able to fully yield all of your members to God; for if you can yield your tongue, you can yield any member of your body to God.
Speaking in tongues is the initial evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. God has given us this wonderful spiritual gift to bless us, edify us, and refresh us throughout our lives on this earth. Let’s receive what God has provided and enjoy the benefits of speaking in tongues! The devil mis quotes the Bible but it still does take the Holy Spirit to teach you what it means.. now that is clearly something many do not have..
“The ONLY way you can get to heaven is by being born again!!! THAT’S what Jesus told Nicodemus! prior to Pentecost and being Born again means also being Baptized with the Holy Spirit too after the day of Pentecost, as Jesus himself also had commanded… and everyone who was baptiazed with the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts showed it by speaking in toungues.. otherwise you truly are not Born again if you do not speak in toungues.. like it or not, believe it or not.. that was the New testament pattern.. so do you speak in toungues, or why not?
Romans 12 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
1 Corinthians 12 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
1 Timothy 4 14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
Revelation 19 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
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.
13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.
27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
1 Corinthians 14 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.
Now I ignore the absurd replies, made by Holy Spirit ignorant persons who not speak in toungues themselves but falsely claim they still are experts on the subject.
