Many long for the true Pentecost experience that the early disciples had. Rightfully so, for we should. But many long so much that they are receptive to a counterfeit experience, which is part of the “strong delusion” sent out in these latter days. But is their “speaking in tongues” the same experience that the early apostles had?
Now I know that this may deeply offend many sincere believers who have been swept away in the tide of glossolalia inundating the globe. How can it be wrong if so many are doing it, some would ask. “Few there be to find this way of truth,” Christ said. So beware of what the “many” are doing.
Studying It Out with an Open Mind
Putting aside pre-conceived ideas and traditions, we must go to the scriptures and see what they say in plain English about the subject. He will reveal His truth to…

5 thoughts on ““Speaking in Tongues” Is Speaking in Other Real Languages–Not Gibberish”
” Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels…” 1 Corinthians 13:1
The gift of tongues covers both the languages of men and of angels. It is most wise to speak reverently of His Holy Gifts (which I know you do). They who have not experienced them should never-the-less respect their expression. Paul being far beyond our present experience spoke in tongues more than us all.
I received the gift at water baptism well over 45 years ago and it was precious then and its ministration to my own walk in the Lord has grown significantly over the years.
Paul reveals that the giftings of God are diverse and though they are fully revealed to us in Corinthians we do not all receive the same gifts. There are no doubt false and superfluous things as the enemy ever seeks to pollute and malign the genuine never-the-less God’s gifts are holy and are essential for His Body.
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.” 1 Corinthians 12:7
Paul presents very clearly what those manifestation are in the verses which follow.There are no time or date limitations to the Word of God.
I believe the writer of this post is speaking of the false teaching some are calling “Speaking in tongues” as they speak words the common person does not understand, which is gibberish as seen with speakers like “Benny Hinn” Scripture teaches the language of the spirit is as a mystery and it is through the Spirit we speak to God, but we are to desire to edify and comfort the body of Christ which talking gibberish no one understands does not do.
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. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. (1 Corinthians 14:2,3).
Blessings and Strength Always.
Yes, the chaos of many environments where proper leadership and discernment is lacking reveals the lack of the fear of the Lord and the carnality of our day. Though the Church at Corint excelled in the gifts Paul called them carnal…
Many don’t see that the miracle was in the hearing. The Apostals spoke to many of different languages, but the many each heard in their native tongue. What goes on on TV and many Pentacostal churches is not of the spirit of God. 1Cor. 14:26-33
YES! I completely agree. Televangelists separate people in the name of God. How people buy into that stuff is beyond me, other than to say they must be keeping their bibles closed or would see through the lies. Many Blessings
