Hear, Do and speak in Tongues! — 2 Comments

  1. “There is a false doctrine out there that says Jesus did it all, we don’t have to do anything”

    Yes,the truth is that Jesus did it all so we now can do the same.

    About speaking in ‘tongues’:

    “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues,” Mark 16:17.

    It means first and foremost that-through our obedience to God’s commandments – our own demons in ourselves shall be cast out and that will result in that we speak in a new tongue, because our minds has through this been renewed and our tongue is now restrained by the Holy Spirit and speaks now only in agreement with God’s Word. That sign was not visible before the demons were cast out.

    The ‘unknown’ tongue which is spoken of in 1 Corinthians 14 is another kind of speaking and is, if not interpreted, unfruitful because it is not lead by the Holy Spirit.

    “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful,” 1 Corinthians 14:14.

    And the tongues spoken of in Acts 2 are the tongues spoken of in other tongues, but in an understandable language.

    “Cretans and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God,” Acts 2:11.

    Myself, this far, speaks only in a ‘new’ tongue.

    • Dear Maria,
      Yes you are right, and it is so simple to understand.
      However, it is also true that many of the large denominations in the worldwide Church do not accept tongues and other spiritual gifts – Cessationist – as they believe tongues and other spiritual gifts ceased to be given out by the Lord, after the first century Church.
      Blessings in Christ,
      Angus
