Tongues

CONCLUSION:  BASED ON SCRIPTURE, THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF TONGUES.

First, when the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles and 120 early believers, they began to speak in different
earthly tongues or dialects.  Jews from every nation were present and recognized what they were saying in thier
own particular language or dialect.  THE PURPOSE OF THIS WAS TO SHOW THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS BEING
POURED OUT ON ALL PEOPLE.

Second, THERE ARE TONGUES THAT PEOPLE SPEAK THAT IS A HEAVENLY LANGUAGE AND NO ONE UNDER-
STANDS.  The person speaking in tongues utters mysteries with his spirit.  This heavenly language between the
speaker of the tongue and God is ussually done in private.

SPEAKING IN TONGUES SHOULD ONLY BE CONTINUED IN THE CHURCH IF THIER IS AN INTERPRETATION.  IF
THERE IS AN INTERPRETATION, THE TONGUE STRENGTHENS AND ENCOURAGES THE CHURCH.  Otherwise, the
speaker of the tongue is speaking to the air.  No one can understand him.

Therefore, SPEAKING IN TONGUES IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT SPIRITUAL GIFT TO THE CHURCH.  Also, the
gift of tongues or any other gift means nothing if it is not accompanied by love.  Love is the most important.

Next week we will review “the meaning of life” from the category vault.  The following week we will begin the
difference between “the human soul and spirit.”

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
