    I thank God for such a wonderful gift,of using words to destroy the devil.We see in this scripture that the mouth is the one that we use to call upon the name of Jesus,and it is the same word that God created the earth,so just believe with heart and confess with your mouth and you will be saved because in your words thats where life is,so as your salvation so dont use your mouth to say evil things because it is the one you use to appreciate the works done by Jesus Christ.glory be to Jesus Christ

    It seems to me, what happened on the day of Pentecost was something of a reversal of what happened at the dispersion at Babel in the book of Genesis. I think speaking in tongues clearly refers to speaking in other languages and was a gift apostles found themselves with granted by the Holy Spirit. This all seems very interesting to me in light of our present day church history. Many thanks!
