Reblogging w some more understanding at the bottom…
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
For the last 4 years I have been praying asking the Lord “What the heck is tongues?!?!”. In the church system I would see people speaking a gibberish language saying it was the “baptism of the Holy Spirit”, and I believed that for a while….. but something was off about it. I would see it was not practiced in order or according to scripture, and I would also see people in full on deception speaking in this gibberish language “tongues”. I remember a man walked by me and he was speaking in a “tongue” and I knew he was cursing me.
So I kept praying “Show me what REAL tongues is, because I see FAKE and I know there must be a real”. I have thrown away everything I learned in the “church system” to relearn all from JESUS DIRECTLY.
This is what Jesus showed me:
Acts 10:46- For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.
Speaking in tongues is speaking SPIRITUAL TRUTHS. They are words that magnify and glorify GOD. They are SPIRITUAL TRUTHS and words of SPIRIT and LIFE that can RECONCILE a heart to Jesus (truth). They are REAL WORDS that can prick the heart and bring CONVICTION and REPENTANCE so that a person gets their HEART right with Jesus.
Jesus showed me this is what happened to me when He filled me with His Spirit. I didn’t fall down and speak in a jibberish language. I was baptized with HIS Spirit and understood SPIRITUAL TRUTHS about who Jesus is. In a matter of seconds I understood the corruption in the church system and spoke against it. I understood and spoke the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God. This is the same thing that happened in the book of Acts. Gods Spirit is the same then as it is now.
Jesus also showed me that when the apostles spoke these SPIRITUAL TRUTHS about Jesus and the religious system of course people thought they were crazy and drunk. People thought I was crazy when I spoke THESE SAME SPIRITUAL TRUTHS. And it was a miracle as well because God is about TRUTH and the HEART and people understood the truths in their language. God is not a God of chaos that had a bunch of people running around speaking in gibberish to glorify Himself…… no way!!!
This understanding that Jesus gave me opened up all of the scriptures to me about tongues.
TRUTH is a spiritual language. People that are BLIND and in RELIGION do not understand TRUTHS, it’s a foreign language (mysteries).
Jesus showed me that that the churches doctrine of saying if you speak in a gibberish language you have the Holy Spirit is a LIE. Jesus Christ is all about the HEART and reconciling peoples HEARTS TO HIMSELF.
This understanding that Jesus gave me has broken the chains of condemnation that I have been walking in for the last few months as he showed me that He wants all hearts to be reconciled to Himself
💖 Sept 2019** Jesus has given me even more understanding this year that Tongues are words from His heart to another person’s heart. It’s a learned language the more time that you spend with Him you can learn the language of the heart, which is truth/spirit. Rivers of living water (Christ in you) flowing out of our heart that bring life and freedom to others. Words from Jesus that build His Kingdom in the hearts of others. Whether a rebuke, or a word of encouragement, He knows what each person needs in that moment. ❤
💖 ** July 2020… just adding more understanding from something Gianna shared that clicked… speaking in tongues is simply speaking the truth in love.. it is speaking from the new heart (Christ IN me)… the wife (church) is silent and her Husband (Christ) speaks… it is letting Christ live thru me and speak thru me to build others up in Christ/truth/spirit/love.
Simply put, speaking in tongues is Christ IN you.
The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.
