WHAT DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH ABOUT SPEAKING IN TONGUES?

Whether you speak in tongues or not, the topic of tongues is a very controversial topic and its a topic you have probably found yourself talking about one way or the other!

It has even caused so much division within the church which should not be. The fact is whether you speak in tongues or not, it does not hinder you from going to heaven. That means if as a christian, your church does not believe in tongues, it doesn’t negate the requirement of Romans 10:10 about the prerequisite for getting saved.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation… Romans 10:9-10

So yes, speaking in tongues does not take anybody to heaven but does that mean it is not necessary? The fact is a believer should have no worry about heaven or hell because its clear where we are going as believers.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death… Romans 8:1-2

So we dont do anything as believers based on “heaven or hell” anymore. Its about edification. This understanding will change how you see things in the kingdom but this is a topic for another day.

The question for today is, Is speaking in tongues really biblical and is it necessary for today?

Lets open the bible.

Contrary to popular belief, the issue of “speaking in tongues” was not first mentioned in the book of Acts. Jesus talked about it in Mark 16:17, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Jesus already said it before he died.

Some people might say “but Jesus did not speak in tongues” yes he did not because the power of the holyghost in this form was only meant to come AFTER Jesus’ death.

And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence… Acts 1:4-5
A believer should speak in tongues because it edifies the believer.
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 1 Cor 14:2
He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; 1 Cor 14:4
