It is not possible that Tongue-Speaking could be a necessary part of
the Christian Life, because Paul plainly states that not all speak in
tongues [1. Corinthians 14:29-20].
The fact that someone is using Christian and Protestant
words, does not make him one. Are modern tongues of God or the Devil?
Speaking in a foreign tongue simply means foreign language. This fact
removes all obscurity. In Acts 2, on the day of Pentecost, were 17
different languages present.
Neo Pentecostals and Charismatic's are basing their unmeaning gibberish and
strange mutterings on a single text are sincerely mistaken and deceived.
In 1.Corinthians 14:27 the word "unknown" has been supplied by
the Translators and is not found in the original manuscripts. This then
would mean that it speaks of 'known' tongues or languages. [The word
'unknown' is in italics in the KJV of the Bible]. Corinth was an
international sea port and some church members prided themselves with
the ability to learn and speak other languages.
There is not one example of a prayer in the Bible that is uttered in
unintelligible mutterings that "bypass the intellect." Jesus Christ did
not pray that way and neither did the apostles. We have heard
Charismatics speak in their "private prayer language" in churches and
conferences in many parts of the world. Larry Lea's "private prayer
language" at Indianapolis '90 went something like
this: "Bubblyida bubblyida hallelujah bubblyida hallabubbly
shallabubblyida kolabubblyida glooooory hallelujah bubblyida." We wrote
that down as he was saying it and later checked it against the tape.
Nancy Kellar, a Roman Catholic nun who was on the executive committee of
St. Louis 2000, spoke in "tongues" that went like this: "Shananaa leea,
shananaa higha, shananaa nanaa, shananaa leeaŠ" repeated over and over.
How could this possibly be a prayer language or speaking in tongues?
||Did early Protestants agree with such a spirit of tongues?
No, they did not! Luther is being reported as saying, my spirit slapps
yours on the snout! Pentecostals today claim that Protestant Reformer
John Wesley on the ship home from America spoke in tongues. But this is
absolutely from lying tongues. Wesley was still
unconverted at that stage and only on his arrival back home from this
voyage attended a Morovian Missionary (branch of Lutherans) Meeting
where the comments of Luther were read out and John found his Saviour.---See-
The Journal of John Wesley, May 24, 1738.
Luther's book is still available today: 'Commentary on Romans by Martin Luther,
Kregel publications. 223 pages and I use it al the time. Pentecostals would not
agree with Luther on the following:
"Ye are not under the law, but under grace (Rom.6:14) Believers are not
under the Law, but under grace, because they have fulfilled it through faith in
Christ, whose fulfilment of the Law and righteousness is ours. This is freely
given us by God's grace, because He has mercy on us. In John 8:34 Christ says:
"Whosoever committed sin is the servant of sin." Therefore sin is his
master."---page 105, 2nd par.
But now we are delivered from the Law in the sense that by faith
in Christ we obey the Law, and by grace freely and willingly do what the Law
demands of us. For this we need (divine) love which seeks what is God's and
which is given to all who in true faith ask for it in the name of
Jesus."---ibid, page 109
TONGUES what is it? Known as Glossolalia or spiritual and
charismatic gift! Providing it is the genuine article as found in Acts 2 where
we see 16 known tongues or languages that were clearly understood.
But today's unmeaning gibberish is far from it. If this phenomena is
the sole criteria for truth, then all the lies of Satan are easily accepted. Neo
Pentecost is far from it and instead of calling people out of Babylon,
they call people into it (see Revelation 14:8;18:4).
Babylon stands for confusion. At Babel God confused the
[TONGUES] languages and all the
various churches of Christendom, all claiming to have their teachings derived
from the same Bible, fits this picture. But now with adding the confusion and babeling of tongues, it really applies!
A significant feature in the work of spiritism just now, is the religious
garb it is assuming.. Keeping in the background its grosser principles. It talks
of sin, repentance, the atonement, salvation through Christ, in almost as
orthodox language as do genuine Christians.
Fallen Angels have transformed themselves and their ministers (
2.Cor.11:14,15 ) into angels of light and deceive if it were possible the very
elect of God. So close is the
counterfeit like a $10 Dollar bill that it is hard to distinguish between the
false and the genuine. He only needs to inject 5% poison into good wholesome
food for it to poison us and for us to take it in unaware. Christians, both
Protestant and Roman Catholic, please wake up.
The church at Corinth was carnal (1.Cor.3:3) and therefore ungodly and unable
to keep the Ten Commandments (Rom.8:7). It was a wicked church taking each
other to court over their evil deeds. practiced fornication, were partisan, neglected
prayer, abused their ministers, failed to pay tithe to support their ministers
and had perverted the Lord's supper.
Because Corinth was an international seaport, wickedness had rubbed off to
the church. The apostle Paul was the international evangelist and spoke more
languages than any of them. He tried very hard to bring them back on course
again. In Corinth was confusion. people were speaking different languages and
sometimes no one to interpret what was said. Paul wanted to bring order, so that
outsiders could come into their midst and respect them.
Notice in 1.Cor.14:2 that speaking in tongues is speaking to God only and not
to men. No man can understand it not even interpreters. It is mysteries. But
if any man preach the gospel in a foreign language (known tongue), let there
be someone who can interpret, then you have the real gift.
"Paul says that the tongue speaker edifies himself [1.Cor.14:4] That would not
be possible unless the words could be understood. Throughout chapter 14 Paul
says that understanding is necessary for edification.
The apostle urges the Corinthian church and us to the Commandments of God
(1.Cor.7:19) and instead of cheap emotions, God's solid principles of love
(1.Cor.13) then they would not need letters of commendations (2.Cor.3:1)
because everyone would see that Christ is in our hearts and would shine from our
Modern speaking in tongues is more than religious nonsense, its meaningless
gibberish and mutterings are listed in the old testament under wizards and
familiar spirits (Isaiah 8:19). GOD forbids it!
Missionaries have found witchdoctors in the islands with this same
gift of speaking in tongues. We must take the warnings of our LORD JESUS
really seriously: 'For there shall arise false Christs (or Christians), and
false Prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch they
shall deceive the very elect, if it were possible'.--Matthew 24:24 and the warnings of the apostle
Paul: 'let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (second Advent) shall
not come, except there is a falling away first (which happened after the bulk of
Christianity rejected the three Angel's messages of Revelation 14), and that the
man of sin (or lawlessness) stands revealed ( the modern King of Babylon,
the Papacy claims to have inherited the title Pontifex Maximus, in short Pontiff,
directly from the King of Babylon, and also claims authority from heaven to
modify divine law, is definitely the lawless one spoken of here ) ......who
opposes and exalts himself ( note here how exalted the pope really is )
......so that he as God, showing himself that he is God (by calling
himself 'HOLY FATHER', he is putting himself in the place of God.
This religious title is strictly forbidden in the new testament, see
Matth.23:9).......for the mystery of iniquity (or sin and error) does already
work ..(papal lawlessness started way back then)............with all power and signs
and lying wonders. --2.Thess.2:3-9
The apostle Paul gives the very reason why GOD has sent this strong and
overpowering delusion into Christianity: "They received not the love of
What is the truth? JESUS is the LOGOS or WORD of GOD made flesh, John 1:1!
i.e. doctrines! But they have separated JESUS from the WORD of GOD and so with

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The only biblical references to the baptism of the Holy Spirit are in Matthew
3:11 and Luke 3:16. Both
verses tell us that John the Baptist said Jesus would
baptize people with fire and the Holy Spirit. In Revelation 13:13 we can see
fallen Angels counterfeit the cloven tongues of fire that
fell at Pentecost with miracles as a means of deception in making an image
to the beast 666
In revelation 16 we can see the evil trinity possessed by evil spirits
like frogs coming out of their mouth. How does the frog catch his prey?

The 1914 manual of spiritualism ,when it still was opposed to
Christianity ,listed speaking in tongues and miracles just as in witchcraft and
sorcery. 1960's saw faith healer Oral Roberts entering the mainline
Churches coinciding with the second Vatican Council II
1960's Catholic faith healers in the Philippines started bloodless
operations on tumor patients.
* also the first Episcopal (Church of England) priest Dennis Bennett
broke out in tongues Note: English Adventist Evangelist Edward Irving was
convicted in the 1850's of heresy by English courts. Also on oct. 1650
George Fox the founder of the 'Quakers' was before judge Gervase Bennett
who termed speaking in tongues 'quaking like frogs in the hands of God' and this
gave Quakers their name, but they have since given up the quaking.
This is exactly what the Bible also called in Revelation 16:13
In 1965 the U.S. Federal gvt. financed a scientific study into speaking
in tongues at the Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York by Dr.'s
John Kildahl and Paul A. Qualben. After taking Glossolalia on tape, they called
in neo-Pentecostal so called interpreters from different locations. The report
said: "There was no similarity in the interpretations. One interpreter said
the tongue speaker was praying for the health of his children; the other would
report the same speech to be an expression of gratitude to God for a recent
successful church fund-raising effort.
This has to be Satan the wolf in sheep clothing. God here apparently did not
allow the fallen foe to interfere and synchronize the two interpreters. Praise the
The burning question remains, why doesn't our gvt. protect its people
from these delusions? But God says that this delusion is only for certain people, see 2.Thess2:9
and is directly linked to 1.Timothy 4:1-4--monks, nuns, priests, bishops,
cardinals and popes are not permitted to marry and have to abstain from meat on
Mark 16 which starts off with
Sabbath keeping to which Pentecostals and Charismatic's do not subscribe.
Verse 17 all those who are baptized [v.16] are born again Christians which
speak with new tongues or language. Before they were used to swearing,
cursing and foul jokes, now they are full of godly talk. This is the new
for v.18, many Pentecostals falsely so called have tried it even in front of
TV and failed miserably, because it is the false latter rain. The real
latter rain is on its way and will produce persecution.
Referring to the time of the latter rain in her chapter "Modern
Revivals" in The Great Controversy, Ellen White said:
"The Spirit and power of God will be poured out upon His children. At that
time many will separate themselves from those churches in which the love of
this world has supplanted love for God and His word. Many, both of ministers
and people, will gladly accept those great truths which God has caused to be
proclaimed at this time to prepare a people for the Lord's second
Then, in prophetic words she describes how the enemy will
"The enemy of souls desires to hinder this work;; and before the time for such a
movement shall come, he will endeavor to prevent it by introducing a
counterfeit. In those churches which he can bring under his deceptive power he
will make it appear that GOD's special blessing is poured out; there will be

that GOD is working marvellously for them, when the work is that of another
The real latter rain is about to be poured out to loosen
every stammering tongue. Unlike neo-Pentecostalism, the real Holy Spirit will
convict of sin and extreme worldliness into which modern Babylon has fallen.
If it doesn't line up with Holy Writ, don't touch it. Emotionalism is an ego
trip and a poor substitute for faith. Demons have a high time with the world and
the church right now. But God's real latter rain of the Holy Spirit is on His
way and will outdo any false and counterfeit Pentecost.
Moffatt's New Testament Commentary says
of these manifestations: "Oracles of the great 'lord' at the Shrine of
Delphi, as Heraclitus put it, were revelations of the god's will through
ecstasy, not through sensible words. So were the Sybil's unintelligible cries. A
priest or priestess, seized by sudden trances of the spirit, uttered mystic
sayings, which were held to be all the more divine as they were least rational
or articulate. [Italics supplied.] Philo in Alexandria had taken over the Greek
notion, arguing that such ecstasy, when the mind or unconscious reason was
superseded, was the highest reach of the human soul in its quest for
God."—Commentary on 1 Cor. 14, p. 214.
The Greek verb diermeneuo may mean either to "translate," to
"explain," or to "interpret." It is also used often to
convey the idea of making something understandable or clear.
Now it is obvious, according to Paul's previous statements, that the moment glossolalia
becomes understandable, it ceases to be glossolalia by definition, for glossolalia
is something which "no one understands" (14:2). In other words, Paul,
by telling his readers to exchange their ability at glossolalia for
powers of interpretation, has very clearly told them to choose that other way of
speaking, the way which produces understandability.
Once again in this paragraph, as in paragraph one, Paul makes a statement
which the context simply will not allow to be taken in a straightforward manner.
"I thank God. I speak in tongues more than all of you" (14:18). Some
have contended that Paul means by this assertion that he speaks more languages
than any Corinthian Christian. But such a
contention requires one to define Pauline glossolalia as something
different from Corinthian glossolalia, which is manifestly
nonunderstandable, as shown above.
Evangelist Dwight Moody compared speaking in tongues to choirs
that sing in a way no one can understand. "Why is not that (Choir) just as
great an abomination?".---Secret Power, page 110.
Advocators of Speaking in tongues tell us that the Ten
Commandments are an administration of death. But the very opposite is true. They
are a Law of liberty and freedom from sin (James 2:8-12). Paul in 2.Corinthians
chapter 3 does not say this. He states that the Law is glorious and therefore
does not diminish from it. What was the administration of death was the daily
killing of animal sacrifices for sins.
A significant feature in the work of
spiritism just now, is the religious garb it is assuming. Keeping in the
background its grosser principles.
It talks of sin, repentance, the atonement, salvation through
Christ, in almost as orthodox language as do genuine Christians.
Yet its occult powers and necromancy ( talking to the dead )
is clearly seen today. The dead know not
anything ( Eccl.9:5,6;Psalms 146:4 ) and in these last days we are warned
against seducing spirits ( 1.Tim.4:1 ).
Speaking in Tongues and the secret rapture has never been part of
"How about when the spirit of truth is come, he
will lead you into all truth".---John 16:13. The spirit of
glossolalia leads into error. Tongues has never been part of the Protestant
heritage. It only arrived after the fall of spiritual Babylon.
120 Million Roman Catholics received the infusion of baptism
of the spirit (tongues) and Neo-Pentecostalism (Charismatic Movement) emerged in
the 1960's when Episcopal (Church of England) priest Dennis Bennett spoke in
While some churches are little more than cemeteries, tongues
are more like an insane asylum and performing circuses with worldly rock
Does tongues lead to more holiness in living or just create an
appetite for the next meeting where they get "ZAPPED" again?
How can praying in tongues be preaching the Gospel?
>>>llie tondi lamatra silia contira so ma<<<
Before tongues arrived in the 1960's, we were
given >>>hokus pokus sala malikum espiritus sanctus<<< in the
dead language of latin that you could not understand either.
Before 1960's no preaching of the gospel of Christ, only
ceremonies in which the image of the 'sun-monstrance' was the most sacred object
of worship. Since spritualism this has become unnecessary, yet the day of the
sun-Sunday, is still most sacred.
In Protestantism, Pentecostals started on January 1,1900 by a
Methodist named Agnes Ozman who suddenly broke out in tongues.
When speaking in tongues came into Christianity in the 1960's,
they confronted us with the challenge that we must speak in tongues in order to
proof that you have the spirit. It is a spirit alright, but it proved to us that
they did not know what it means to be born again by the real Holy Spirit of God.
Why are so many people deceived by charismatic error today? It
should be obvious that falling on the floor and getting "drunk in the Spirit"
are not biblical practices, that genuine biblical tongues-speaking is not mere
gibberish that can be learned, that rock music (the very name of which refers to
fornication) cannot glorify a holy God, and that women should not teach or usurp
authority over men. Yet all of these and many other errors are readily accepted
by multitudes of people.
Acts 2 drunken preachers?
The drunk part in
ACTS 2 I understand as seen by unbelievers as boldness that comes from consuming
alcohol. They did not subscribe this to being GOD'S Holy Spirit's power.
ACTS 10 is all about accepting non-Jews from other nations [see verses
28,35, 45] and so foreign languages are here indicated. From verse 19 we can see
that the Holy Spirit is an actual person.
The joy comes from being truly born again and having the
fruits [not gifts] of the Holy Spirit [Gal.5:22].
Demons can give you light and power, but cannot supply the
love, joy and peace of the real Holy Spirit. Glossolalia looks more like
deformation than reformation. Jumping up and down and around, and screaming and
hollering in a disorderly manner accompanied by worldly music "Beware of
pretended holiness" they are charmed as they give themselves up to wild,
excitable feelings and make unintelligible sounds which they call the gift of
Miracles? "Let not the days pass by and precious
opportunities be lost of seeking the Lord with all the heart and mind and soul.
If we accept not the truth in the love of it, we may be among the number who
will see the miracles wrought by Satan in these last days, and believe them.
Many strange things will appear as wonderful miracles, which should be regarded
as deceptions manufactured by the father of lies. . . . Men under the influence
of evil spirits will work miracles. They will make people sick by casting their
spell upon them, and will then remove the spell, leading others to say that
those who were sick have been miraculously healed. This Satan has done again and
We have been warned that we are not to depend
entirely upon miraculous healing when there is sickness. We must do everything
that we can for ourselves. We are to study the nature of the disease, find its
cause, and deal with it intelligently, using all the facilities at hand. If God
were to heal all sickness when requests are made of Him, this would lead to
presumption. Very few would change their way of life that had brought on the
sickness. For this reason health institutions were to be established among us
where people might not only regain their health through proper treatment but
also could be taught how to prevent sickness.
When these discordant ones, holding their
different views, come together and there is considerable excitement and the
unknown tongue, they let their light so shine that unbelievers would say: These
people are not sane; they are carried away with a false excitement, and we know
that they do not have the truth. Such stand directly in the way of sinners;
their influence is effectual to keep others from accepting the love of the
They make a profession, but their fruits are such as to disgust unbelievers.
They are boastful, and pray and talk in a self-righteous manner, exalting
themselves, recounting their good deeds, and, like the Pharisee, virtually
thanking GOD that they are not as other men. Yet these very ones are crafty, and
overreach in business deal. Their fruits are no good. Their words and acts are
wrong. Our Lord JESUS has this to say to them:
"Not everyone that saith to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of
heaven; but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven. Many will say
to Me in that day [judgment], Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name?
and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that
The Christian who wishes to stay with the spectacular and never moves
on to an understanding will never really know GOD. Having dug deep into the
charismatic movement, I ferreted out the reason for the sudden popularity and
compared it to the past history of our long Christianity. It became apparent
that the entrance of the modern tongues has been carefully timed to coincide
with the introduction of a new spiritual disease called "emptiness of the soul";
a self-loving condition that exists in a life built around a spiritual vacuum
where CHRIST is but a name, and the HOLY SPIRIT is nothing but a formless wisp
of undefined power.
