    Jesus himself is a word of God. He who believes him and his living water shall never die. John 1.1 In the beginning there was a word and the word was with God and the word was God amen. Only believe his words and lean not with your own understanding. Thank you Jesus for bringing us your that gives us life in abundance. Thanks for your blood. Let us be Born Again in Spirit and not in the flesh.

    This truly is and always has been the blue print Paul had set forth in the true and genuine Holy Church, Amen and Amen indeed. Our Heavenly Abba Dad's Word in and of itself mean's what it say's and say's what it mean's alone, Amen. We must all come back to all of it, Amen. SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA JESUS AMEN ! God bless and keep you alway's, amen. Shalom yedda dim !

    Remember satan was God's right hand man therefore he understands everything no matter the tongue. There would be no scripture to your comment.

    Avire,man cannot teach this. It is, as all gifts given by God according to his will, to whom he wills. Don't be deceived by the false teachers and false "Christians" of our day. May the Lord lead you into his truth.

    True tongues are a gift only given from GOD. THE ONLY LANGUAGE THE DEVIL DONT UNDERSTAND.when you speak in tongues,it is always for someone else present to hear. it cannot be taught , learned or read in books as it is a gift from GOD.
