Gift of Tongues - what does Bible say? biblical speaking? Correction to Doctrine of men.
1 Cor 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God. There is a type of tongues that is man's language yes! BUT there is also a type of tongues called "unknown tongues" not a known language that we know! only God understands!! ONLY GOD understands! ONLY GOD! NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND IT! NO ONE! 1 Cor 14:2...for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries!
Do yourself a favor! don't blaspheme the HOLY SPIRIT! saying its from devil.
Speaking in tongues in hebrew bible is refered to as "glossolalia," made up of two Greek
words, glossa (language or tongue) and lalia (speech). Which means language. Either
language of men, angels or of God.
Misconception 1 : Speaking in tongues is ONLY understandable to men. - Wrong!
Bible does not say tongues is language of men only! Rather Bible speaks both!
Tongues can be language of Angels or of Holy Spirit or of Men. (3 Different Entities)
1 Corinthians 13:1 "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, if I do not have
Normally tongues are not understood by men because their spirit speaks to God. Proof:
1 Corinthians 14:2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one
understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. (NO ONE! ONLY GOD
UNDERSTANDS this Heaven language! )
1 Corinthians 14:14 For if I pray in tongues, my spirit is praying, but I don't understand what I am
saying. (Even the person speaking, do not understand tongues of Holy Spirit Or of Angel
language or of men's language that they have not learned.
Clearly Holy Spirit language, or angelic tongues is not understandable by person speaking it or
others. Only 2 exceptions:
1.those who have gift of interpretation can understand
2.in the case of men's language: only someone who knows that language can
"Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded,
because that every man heard them speak in his own language. (Acts 2:6 and 9-11) lists the
sixteen languages which were spoken initially as a sign to unbelievers! This is the language of
Tongues spoken in MEN's Language!
There are over 6500+ languages around the world, and they sound all totally different from each
other! from Norway, German, to Ethiopian, and far tribes of Africa, to Thailand, Vietnamese. If
someone who had the gift of tongues in Liechtenstein or Nauru or Tuvalu, no one would
understand it and think the person is just "babbling", or making it up. That is only an
ASSUMPTION because most never heard such language before! How many languages can
you identify today? 3? 5? 10? Well, there are over 6500+ languages in the world!
You cannot propose to us that you can distinguish all languages and know if one is speaking
language or not!
Misconception 2 : Gift of tongues was only valid gift in the early First Century churches, and
NOT for today. - Wrong!
There is No Scriptures that says tongues was only for first century churches period. It is the gift
of Holy Spirit who is still here on earth today. The only verse that doctrines of men use to
support their claim Speaking in Tongues is not for today is:
1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether
there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we
know in part and we prophesy in part.10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that
which is in part will be done away. 11When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a
child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we
see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I
also am known.
