We taught about the difference between private tongues and public tongues.
PRIVATE – Tongues as an evidence for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in Acts 2:39 is for every believer.
PUBLIC – The Gift of Tongues found in 1 Cor. 12:10b, (to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.) is a spiritual gift for every believer but is for the corporate body for edification and encouraging.
PUBLIC TONGUES MUST BE INTERPRETED!
Pastor I heard someone during worship speaking in tongues, how come they did not interpret it?
Just because you hear someone speaking in tongues (private) in a service in their worship does not mean it is a message from the Father to His body.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF IT IS A TONGUE THAT NEEDS TO BE INTERPRETED?
When it is a Spiritual Gift Public Tongue you will not even have to question it. You will know in your knower that it is Jesus speaking to His church and then the interpretation will follow to reveal His words to His body. IT IS SUCH A POWERFUL EXPERIENCE!
In my last church which was comprised mainly of Calvinists who did not believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit being for today (they were taught that the gifts ended with the first century church) on Easter Sunday morning a woman shot up and started speaking in tongues REALLY loud! She then brought the interpretation and it was awesome. That afternoon I was waiting for the calls to come in and to have many people leave the church because of their bad teaching. The first call came in and the woman said, “I don’t understand all this Spirit stuff, but without question my hair stood up and I knew it was God.” WHEW!!!!!!!
You will know!
Tongues with the Interpretation of Tongues = PROPHECY. That tomorrow…..stay tuned.
