Speaking in Tongues: Rule 1 & Rule 2
Rule 1 for speaking in tongues.
According to the Rule ordained by the Holy Spirit Himself by inspiring apostle Paul to write these verses, “all speaking in tongues in the church must be interpreted, if not, just keep silent”.
Ironically, even such simple & intelligible words in the Bible for the order in the church are ignored so blatantly bringing shame upon themselves who do against these verses as the Day approaches.
Happy is the man who keeps “all” His Word.
#PaulOnTongues ‘If I speak in #tongues, what good will I be, unless I bring you knowledge? Unless you speak #intelligible words, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be #speakingintotheair. So if the church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are #outofyourmind?
If anyone speaks in a tongue, someone must #interpret. If there is no interpreter, the speaker should #keepquiet.‘ – (1 Corinthians 14:6-33).
Rule 2 for speaking in tongues
In any “gathering” together such as in a church, “at most 3” are allowed to speak in tongues “by taking turns” meaning it can’t be done simultaneously followed by a “compulsory interpretation” according to the Bible.
If “not”, just “keep silent”.
Those who practice against these Holy verses of God insult its Author and either do not have His Holy Spirit or are disobeying His Word causing grief to Him.
Here are these verses (literally again):
“What then is it, brethren? whenever ye may come together, each of you hath a psalm, hath a teaching, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation? let all things be for building up; if an [unknown] tongue any one do speak, by two, or at the most, by three, and in turn, and let one interpret; and if there may be no interpreter, let him be silent in an assembly (church), and to himself let him speak, and to God. “ (1 Corinthians 14:26-28)
Please don’t do acts contrary to the Bible even if your pastor falsely requests you to do it saying that the above is only for the Corinthian church, a baseless statement not found in Scripture.
All Scripture under a Covenant is applicable to all who are bound by that Covenant for that age because there’s no partiality in God.
Be afraid of God (follow His Word) and not your pastor (man) if he acts “contrary” or against the Word especially when it’s so plainly written like this.
