Gift of Tongues
« on: Mon Jul 25, 2016 - 07:01:39 »
Hi everyone, I am a former Penescostal women and I am sad I can't attend anymore at this church, it's just too far for me. I will be back soon though.

So my question is this, I was baptized there in the Holy Spirit and felt God's hand on me, and boy was it powerful. Upon being lifted up and sitting there receiving the spirit, I had people around me praying in tongues, watching the pastor was holding the bible and praying as well. Seconds after I started to slightly pray in tongues and then I noticed that the prayer got louder, along with their tongues. Of course, I noticed that my tongue didn't sound like theirs, it felt as if my tongue wasn't as advanced or at their level, so I just tried to remember what my mom taught me and how I was raised around heavy tongue. Well, next time I attended church there I went up to the podium to pray in tongues with my mom, and this lady walks up to me who I recongnize now as the leader of the church, and she tells me that I have to leave the podium and go sit down. She asked me if I knew how to pray in tongues, and in so many words she stated I wasn't doing it right. I beleived her and I was traumatized but hid it very well and especially from my mother.

I read in the bible more recently about praying in tongues and that everyone had a different tongue from a different nation. I beleive it's Acts 2. Now my question is, did she have any right to kick me off the podium where everyone was praying? Also, was she judging me? She made me feel less then.

Much later I came back to that church, about 14 years later or so,  and I went up to the podium to pray in tongues and the lead usher came up to me while in the midst of praying in tongues and he was also, but he put his hand out and layed his hand upon my forehead to cast a demon out. Wow. That was shocking but God was with me and Jesus explained to me that this man is trying to cast something out of you that's not there. He continued to pray in tongues loudly and rapdily, and I was more soft spoken and I had my hands raised in glory, even the pastor looked at me, but I think God confirmed with him at that moment that I was God's child so he left me alone, but this other man who layed his hand on me wouldn't leave me alone so I let him be. God comforted me and said to me follow me, not him, I am your God and I will show you how to pray in tongues.

I am healed of this now but for the longest time felt judged by others at this church cause my tongue didn't sound exactly like theirs.

Thank you

You were not in a good church.

I am not Pentecostal.

I do pray in tongues.... not extensively..... and certainly not as I have heard others from time to time.
Mine is always between me and God and I have no clue what I am saying but it always is short and is a definite tongue.

Even a couple of times when I had the opportunity to attend a Billy Burke healing session near to me and attended, those that were "slain in the Spirit" would pray in tongues.... as did he.

One lady sitting directly behind me was praying thusly as was Burke and they were by no means
on the same page.


NO ONE can tell you you are right or wrong. Tongues is your communication between your spirit and God.

I would stay away from that church and find another. NOT to go up where others can judge or mock what you are saying, but for worship. Then you can pray in solitude to the Lord in the tongue that He and only He will direct you in.

That specific church certainly sounds more cultish then anything else.

What do you mean it "doesn't stick"?  Paul is giving clear direction how to handle the gift of tongues within the assembly and if there is no one to interpret, the tongue should be silent and be only between them and God.

It didn't stick in my mind as being biblical because my church does not use tongues within an assembly.

So, when I pray in mine... it is strictly between God and myself and an interpreter is not needed.

What has stuck is the simple mentioning of the "gifts from the Holy Spirit" mentioned in 1 COR 12:4

 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

So, if tongues is not applied to an assembly.... then it is as you say...the tongue should be silent and be only between them and God..
and that is me and why Pauls teaching on how to be in an assembly did not stick in my mind cause we do not do that.

 Its good that you are no longer in that church, they dont seem to have a clue. However you can pray in tongues anywhere and any time, not sure why you had to go to the podium to do so?Just use this language when you pray to God, in your own personal relationship with Him. Everyone has a different tongue/language, they will be as different as any language is to another, no one can judge you for what yours sounds like. 
I hope that you have found a good church now.

It sticks, because TC said, (without quoting anyone btw), that if tongues are spoken in the assembly, there needs to be an interpretation of said tongues.  He got that notion from scripture and scripture always sticks.

Won't matter on my path to hell.... as so many here have me bound for.

But it still does not alter the fact that my church does not have an assembly as yours does and it has never been once mentioned by the preacher, or any Sunday school teacher.

It is not personal, Rella, its truth based on general terms and applicable to those in an assembly of any kind.

In an assembly of those who practice tongues in their worship service.

We do not.

And that being the case... when many hundreds gather together at a Billy Burke healing and prayer service... ( I have been to two)
and many pray in tongues, within the audience as well as when they have gone forward for their healings... perhaps I should say speak.... including Burke himself... and there is no interpreter there they did it wrong.... according to scripture.... which I now can quote verbatim....

And when these people , who are in an assembly... which was not a specific worshiping assembly.. receive their healings.... of which I have witnessed and have no doubt they are real.....

These people really did not receive a healing because they did it all wrong..... becaue there was no interpreter for the various tongues
that were spoken.

The bottom line, Rella is that TC wasn't being a "know it all", as you were implying, because God gives us a directive of how HE wants things handled when tongues are given within an assembly.

Take it or leave it.

If you are speaking in tongues in the assembly  without  an interpreter you are in error according to God's Word.

So, when someone speaks in a tongue and another one who was supposed to interpret does not, that makes the original speaker wrong?  I think this needs clarification.     

Paul was surely referring to someone speaking in tongues on a regular basis to bring attention to the person and not give glory to God.   It is of no benefit without an interpretation but there are times when someone has the unction to speak in a tongue and another person resists giving the interpretation and that would not be an error on the part of the one who first spoke in a tongue.

Speaking as in a public message - correct.  Praying quietly to the Lord does not need an interpreter.

1 cor 14.28 b  ... and let him speak to himself and to God.

If you are speaking in tongues in the assembly  without  an interpreter you are in error according to God's Word.
Speaking as in a public message - correct.  Praying quietly to the Lord does not need an interpreter.

1 cor 14.28 b  ... and let him speak to himself and to God.

I only mentioned the assembly.
