__________

Thankyou for the question Kevin.

I do have some thoughts on this:

Of course the first appearance of this gift came in Acts 2:4-11 during the day of Pentecost.

At this large gathering, people from different nationalities suddenly heard other people speaking in THEIR language.“How is it that we hear every man [speaking] in our own tongue wherein we were born?”(Acts 2:8)

The second time this gift appears in Scripture was when the gentile, Cornelius, sent for Peter to come and speak to him.(Acts 10)

On this occasion the same thing that had happened on the day of Pentecost was repeated.

Cornelius [being a centurion of the Italian band/regiment (10:1)], had gathered together quite a large group of friends and family to hear what Peter had to say.

And “while Peter yet spoke” to this group, the Holy Spirit gave the gift of tongues once again (Acts 10:46).

Following the precedent seen on the FIRST occasion, may we not reasonably assume that the Gentiles [the Latins] now spoke fluent Hebrew in the ears of the seven Jews that had come to the house? In just the same way that it had happened on the day of Pentecost?

The SDA view of speaking in tongues is very different to the mainstream view.

We see it as a practical, miraculous gift.

And why don't SDA's "speak in tongues" in this
way?

I do not know why we don't, but I expect that the day will come .

The gift of tongues was not a miracle of "hearing", but the actual ability to communicate fluently in the mother tongue of any group the disciples wanted to address. It was a GIFT OF COMMUNICATION that functioned like a chain-reaction during the formative years of the Church...until around the 4th century.

What was the point of this "miracle" of speaking in "tongues?" For what purpose? How about a real biblical example.

Real Biblical Examples:

Is 66:18
For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

Acts 2:4-8
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

Corinthians 14:23
If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

In every single occurence of speaking in tongues in Bible, it was known languages, where someone understood what was being said.

The unknown tongue movement that has infiltrated many denominations is a false counterfeit tongue.

The true purpose of the gift of tongues - to edify and instruct unbelievers in their own language - is not being served by the gibberish of the modern "tongues" movement.

1Cor 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

Notice carefully in the above verse that it says it's NOT for the believers. So ask yourself, why are they speaking unknown tongues to believers?

Answer: It's a counterfeit from Satan which has infiltrated the people and transmuted into emotionalism and fanaticism.

There was a women involved in the gibberish tongue movement and she has since left and share in a book about an experience.

She says; There was a person talking in unknown tongues, and another went to that person and addressed the spirit and said; "In Jesus name I ask you what have you got to say about Jesus"?

Then the person who was talking in gibberish tongues started to CURSE God in english.

Something to ponder.

The gift of tongues was so they could spread the gospel to all the nations, they were able to speak langueges so the Greeks, the Persians, Indians, etc.. all the different people could hear the good news.

It was given maybe it will again but it is no measure to judge truth and righteouness becaues the devil will be able to do such miracles. it is simply s gift given to be able to speak in normal languages to spread the gospel and so everyone could hear in their own language. But having said that be aware of the Devil and he will use methods to decive anyone he can. if give this gift your not to use it unless you are speaking to people in their own tongue and it is not to be used for any other reason.

People do talk jibberish to draw attention to themselves in false religions but it is not understoof by any normal nationality and the glory is not for God. Even if they say it is their god ca be the Deevil and Satan, the Dragon.

If you have heard about the Philosopher Theologian
Moses Maimonides, he says that the talking in gibberish tongues is witchcraft, which at his time
was a common practice among women.

Truly and verily there is nothing more "amazing and marvellous" to compare with the miracle of giving a long service in tongue!! Praise the Lord!!

"...giving a long service in tongue" ah? I wonder where that comes from, since I don't see any flying insects around to make your tongue happy.

I guess when you have to explain humour it isn't funny. Double entendre, "Salty", service in tongue meaning both lecture and cunilingus.

Yes Flash, double enendre. I got you. But what happened to the other frog? Was he getting too old and slow to jump? Did the snake get him, or the church people ended up by frying his legs? You were not lucky after all, ha?
