THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ACTUAL SPEAKING IN STRANGE TONGUES AND ITS PURPOSE IN THE GREAT WILL OF GOD (PART 1/3).
Today we will look into more precisely and in detail on the chapter of speaking in tongue which most of the so called Christians have been confused with.
They are confused with fear of being falling into blasphemy because of this scripture.
Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
So nobody dare to speak against such actual blasphemers who are in fact blaspheming the work of the Holy Spirit fulfilled in Christ Jesus. So afraid of the prosecution that they might face if the dare to speak against such false prophets. They are so afraid of men than THE GREAT ONE AND ONLY TRUINE GOD.
People are so afraid to say that the so called speaking in tongues so prevalent in Christianity is in fact not from God but from confused state of human emotion and mind orginating from the deceitful heart.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things , and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Thus today we will clarify and come to the knowledge of THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ACTUAL SPEAKING IN STRANGE TONGUES AND ITS PURPOSE IN THE GREAT WILL OF GOD. AMEN
FIRST LET'S SEE WHEN THIS GREAT WORK OF GOD STARTED.
Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
It was on day of Pentecost (50th day after Jesus Christ Resurrection and ascension to Heaven) as promised by the Lord the Apostles and disciples of Lord Jesus Christ was with one accord in one place praying and waiting for the promise of God to send them THE HELPER (THE HOLY SPIRIT). And it took place on this day wherein God fulfilled the promise and did send The Holy Spirit the super natural way.
Acts 2:2-3 KJV
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
When The Apostles got the anointing of The Holy Spirit they got the power to speak in strange tongues of other nations who did spoke such strange tongues not understood by the Apostles for they spoke their Hebrew language.
Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
There in Jerusalem they were gathered jews and devout men out of every nation under heaven.
Acts 2:5-8 KJV
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
People gathered there were all confounded/confused and were amazed and marvelled saying are these people (the Apostles) not Galilaeans (Hebrews)? And how come we hear every man in our own tongue/language wherein we are born.
People were all confused and amazed to hear the Apostles of Jesus Christ who were Galilaeans and Hebrew who did not understood nor spoke their strange languages of other nations/nations, but then hearing them speak correct and perfect non-Hebrew languages of other nations.
For instance I being Bhutanese Nepali who does not understand nor speak Japanese language but with the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit speaking correct and perfect Japanese language which Japanese people understands and speaks.
Thus people gathered there there in Jerusalem were surprised and kind of confused not knowing what this means? AND WHAT ON EARTH HAPPENING? For they did not know why and for what reason/purpose it was happening.
Let's see how many people of different nations were gathered in Jerusalem then.
Acts 2:9-11 KJV
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12. Roman Strangers
13. Jews & Proselytes/converts
So rough estimates considering some nations speaking similar languages would have been 12 different languages.
So people were all amazed when the Apostles of Jesus Christ speaking and they hearing in their mother tongues/languages.
Acts 2:12-13 KJV
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
People were confused and amazed and wondered what this means and others even mocked at the Apostles saying that they are full of new wine.
Yes even mocking they did spoke the truth that the Apostles were full of new wine, the new wine which is not of the world but from the heaven- The Holy Spirit. Which Apostle Paul clarified.
Ephesians 5:18-20 KJV
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Yes The Apostles then were drunk and filled with The Anointing and The Power of The Holy Spirit, but people then did not understand them and mocked them saying they were drunk with the worldly wine and thus blabbering those strange languages.
But Apostle Peter standing up witn the eleven, there clarified the confusion of mind and the souls.
Acts 2:14 KJV
But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
Who were the 11 Apostles there standing with Peter (The 12 Apostles)?
Acts 1:13 KJV
And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both
1. Peter, and
2. James, and
3. John, and
5. Philip, and
7. Bartholomew, and
9. James the son of Alphaeus, and
10. Simon Zelotes, and
11. Judas the brother of James.
12. Matthias and he was numbered with the eleven apostles (Acts 1:26), instead of Judas Iscariot the betrayer.
Apostle Paul is one extraordinary most learned who possessed the degree in the law and commandment of Moses, which God chose later for the preaching of the Gospel of water and the spirit of Christ Jesus to Gentiles non Hebrew people.
So Apostle Peter standing with other 11 then clarified the confused state of heart, mind and souls of those people standing there as why God let that phenomenon of hearing in their own language or speaking in tongues by the Apostles took place.
That phenomenon of The Speaking of Tongues by the Apostles happened for the Preaching of The Gospel of Christ - The Gospel of water and the spirit of Christ Jesus.
To be continued......... of 2/3.
