I recently found this Australian sister in the Lord’s You Tube channel through Bro. Bryan Denlinger’s You Tube channel, husky394xp. She’s been such a blessing. She’s got a lot of great videos. Please note that Jesus saved her in the past couple of years, her past includes the Charismatic movement, and more recently, atheism.
Here is a good video she posted regarding the Charismatic movement and speaking in tongues. Please watch the whole thing before commenting, especially if you are angry at this. All verses from the 1611 KJV.
1 Corinthians 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: ***Paul is clear that tongues were a sign for the Jews, see below.
1 Corinthians 1:22: For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1 Corinthians 14:2-4 2 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. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. **Paul is saying those who speak in an unknown tongue edify themselves and not God!
Are you saved by speaking in tongues? No, Paul is clear, he even asks what does it benefit you? 1 Corinthians 14:6 Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by doctrine?
1 Corinthians 14:27: If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
And she’s right, God will show you perfect truth if you ask for it. Run from any church that diminishes Jesus Christ for any other party.
And in case you are wondering about her comments at the end about tongues also being used in witchcraft, you might find this video by Bryan Denlinger interesting. He documents it quite well in this short video. I believe the “tongues” movement also exists in Hinduism. Is that of God? Is that of my Lord, Jesus Christ? If it is present in those other groups, in the same form of gibberish, it should give you pause to think, and be concerned about another Jesus and another Gospel. This is your eternal salvation that I’m talking about. I’m not saying I don’t believe there are saved people in those churches, I know there are. But BE SURE, don’t rely on false signs and wonders. Only genuine repentance and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ will save you. The Holy Spirit indwells all born again believers at the moment they are saved. It’s not something you can work towards or have someone teach you. And just because it feels good, doesn’t mean it’s of God.
I hope that this post is a blessing to someone. There is so much deception out there, pray and ask for the Lord for wisdom and discernment. He will give it to you in spades if you want it.
