Talk:Speaking in tongues
I have been Christian for 5 years and never spoke in tongues until a few weeks ago. I was baptised in the holy spirit. I believed for 5 years that tongues were real, I heard others speak in tongues, I just assumed that gift was not for me. If God wanted to give me that He will- otherwise Im ok just trusting in the Lord and leaning on Him always. I believe He gave me the gift when He did to build my faith and so that I could use it to edify the church and bring glory to His name.
The tongue to me sounded like some type of Arabic. I recorded the tongue on google voice and it did a translation to English from Arabic. Some of the phrases that it caught from arabic translation- “We are Free, Papa; Peace be Upon you; We are full; No god but God, Papa; Flag of the night; Talk about love; Give us door; Word of God; Love science; relationship science; grape vinegar “. So, I can’t say that I know what it all means- or if google voice got it all right per the translation. This happened yesterday. I was sitting here on my couch- amazed by the Lord my God and the gift He has given. And the fact that I can speak a language and glorify Him in a language that I knew nothing about a few weeks ago. — Unsigned, by: 18.104.22.168 / talk
