Tongues

Thanks for reading.  Last week we read that Tongues, spoken by the Apostles and early believers, was a sign.  It
was a sign that the Holy Spirit was meant for all believers, not just the Apostles and Jews.

IN CURRENT TIMES, Tongues is a HEAVENLY LANGUAGE that most people cannot recognize.

1 Corinthians 14:2  FOR ANYONE WHO SPEAKS IN TONGUES DOES NOT SPEAK TO MEN BUT TO GOD.  Indeed,
NO ONE UNDERSTANDS HIM;  he utters mysteries with his spirit.

No one can understand the tongue except those who have the gift of interpreting tongues as the following
scripture states.

1 Corinthians 12:7  Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one…
… to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and still another the INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES.

Some people are GIVEN THE SPIRITUAL GIFT OF INTERPRETING TONGUES.

But what is the purpose of speaking in tongues and interpreting tongues?

1 Corinthians 14:26  When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, A
TONGUE OR AN INTERPRETATION.  All these must be done for the STRENGTHENING OF THE CHURCH.

THE PURPOSE OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES IS TO STRENGTHEN AND ENCOURAGE THE CHURCH.

In the  following weeks, we will read how important it is to speak in tongues compared to the other gifts.  Also,
should there always be an interpretation when a believer speaks in tongues?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
