Speaking in Tongues

Speaking in tongues is perhaps the most divisive and derided experiences among all those who claim to believe in Jesus. Many opinions and beliefs exist, such as: tongues ceased with the completion of the New Testament scriptures; tongues are now demonically inspired and tongues are a gift of the Spirit that only some in the body of Christ receive. Still others claim that tongues must be interpreted at all times or that tongues are always a known language [to someone hearing them]. Just a few hold that speaking in tongues is God's sign that a person has been born again.

The confusion over tongues is paralysing for many who are feeling their way after God. What is the truth? Do all speak in tongues? What is the purpose of tongues? Here you will find solid resources to help you come to understand the relationship between speaking in tongues and the receiving of the precious gift of God, His Holy Spirit!

Thought for the Evening

Hardness Of Heart

"Repay them, O Lord, according to the works of their hands. Give them hardness of heart, your curse unto them."
Lamentations 3:64-65

The greatest curse of God on living men is not simply unbelief, but unbelief that thinks it is believing. The priests and elders who conspired to have Jesus slain thought that they were pleasing God, and when the gift of God, the holy Ghost, fell on Jesus' followers on the day of Pentecost, those elders were thankful they were not among that ecstatic, tongues-talking crowd. They were cursed with the curse of God. They were happy not to be among the blessed. They continued to worship God, to occupy seats of honor among men, and to feel superior to others in every way, especially religiously.

When the holy Ghost fell upon those humble, despised disciples, what the elders and priests in Israel heard was the voices of men and women shouting and "babbling" incoherently. But what they were really hearing, without realizing it, was the voice of God, for he said, "For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people . . . yet they would not hear" (Isa. 28:11-12). And it was not a meaningless voice that was heard, for it signified that His vengeance was accomplished on the cruel pride of those who rejected His Son. Isaiah prophesied of the day when God would speak, and His vengeance would thereby be revealed: "A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord who renders recompence to His enemies" (66:6).

The voice heard on Pentecost morning was the voice of God, coming through happy men and women who had been washed from their sins and who had been born a second time to become citizens of the kingdom of God. Those who did not receive "the blessing", the holy Ghost baptism, had been left out and stood condemned to eternal death, and yet many, not knowing what had happened, were glad to have no part in that holy experience.

It is sad when anyone does not believe the truth of the gospel. But when a person is glad that he does not believe it, and feels blessed by God that he does not believe it, that man is bearing God's greatest curse on his soul.
