    This may actually be the differences in calendar years. I have recently been learning the differences in calendars. Todays USA calendar is different from the Jewish calendar, & even the Jewish calendar is different than originally. Hopefully that's helpful.

    Well praise the Lord!

    Pardon my redundancy but since this is a dalvation issue allow me to confirm; you have been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (and not the titles Father Son and Holy Ghost) for the remission of sins?

    Verily what you said that The Father (God), The Word (God) and the Holy Ghost (God) are one. However, if you happen to believe that the word; Word actually means Christ, or Son of God, then unfortunately you have been deceived by rome's sorcerers/ theologians. JOHN 1:1 KJV 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.


    The word, Word means written or spoken unit of communication. Just like these words I am writing to you here. They are my word (aside from my Father's word -1 Perer 4:11 :) and they are with me.

    In summary, getting back to the original question at hand: yes, the Holy Scriptures clearly show that every time someone received the Gift of the Holy Ghost in the book of Acts, the initial manifestation and evidence of it is that they would speak in an unknown tongue (be it of men or angels) and prophesy and magnify God, Hallelujah! This is not to misconstrue the initial evidence of having received the Gift with the individual 'gift of diverse tongues' or being able to speak in known languages of men without ever having learned them (Paul speaks of this in 1 Corinthians 12).

    So yes, in summary, all who receive the gift of the Holy Ghost will speak in an unknown tongue as the Spirit gives them utterance. However not all have the gift of diverse tongues. Covet the best gifts.

    I hope this helps you so that you can press in in prayer and praise and receive the Gift, as Jesus said in Luke 11:13 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?


    We don't want to boast of a false gift as that would make us like what is spoken of in Proverbs 25:14, & Jude 1:12 if we continue.

    Be well

    b. Actually, those missionaries involved in Bible Translation work can use the KJV in their projects. I'm familiar with the ministry of Wycliffe Bible Translators knowing a few (now, elderly) folk still involved in some way with their target people group. In many cases, where there is no script for them to work with, these translators have to also develop a script, along with learning the language - no easy task & a work that can go on for decades before the Word is produced in the tribes' language. So, in your example of a people group unfamiliar with 'snow or the feeling of cold', the translators have to develop another word or imagery that conveys the meaning. So, in fact, there would be Bibles produced for such folk that vary markedly from what we have now in English, simply because biblical Truths need to be conveyed to the sacrifice of the original, accurate words. So, Exodus 4:6 "leprous as snow" could be translated "a sickness turning your skin as the colour of the clouds". Or, Proverbs 25:13 "As the cold of snow in the time of harvest" could be translated "as a refreshing drink in summertime".

    Proverbs 15:1

    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

    By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

    Job 41:3

    Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

    This is the 2nd time showing this....

    Job 23:16

    For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me:

    Job 41:3

    Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

    Psalms 55:21

    The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

    Psalms 65:10

    Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

    Proverbs 15:1

    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

    Proverbs 25:15

    By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

    Isaiah 38:15

    What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

    Matthew 11:8

    But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

    Luke 7:25

    But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.


    I didn't find any soft headed people. I'm not sure what that means biblically either.

    I believe this is what you are looking for.
    Proverbs 21:9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
    Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
    Proverbs 25:24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.

  • Nancy Fieste on Proverbs 25
    Proverbs 25; 21, 22.
    We have to forgive our enemies. Especially when the devil has us thinking they're right in our family. (vs 21) If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat, and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink. (vs 22) For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee. End of verse. The word of God is so instructing and delicious. Praise God!
  • Timk on Proverbs 25
    Proverbs 25:2, along with Pa7ls admission to Timothy to study the scriptures is what drives me to find the truths of Gods word. I want to become a "king"
  • KJB on Acts 2
    Whoso boasteth himself of a false GIFT is like clouds and wind without rain Proverbs 25 14. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their TONGUES, and say, He saith. Jer 23 31. Wherefore TONGUES are for a sign, NOT TO THEM THAT BELIEVE!!! 1 Cor 14 22. For the Jews require a SIGN, 1 Cor 1 22. An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a SIGN!! Matt 12 39. In the book of Acts tongues were spoken on three occations, Ch 2,10, and 19. All three places JEWS who require a SIGN were present. You are not a Jew. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, Rev 16 13. Frogs catch their prey with their tongue. WATCH that little member. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his TONGUE, but DECEIVETH his own heart, this man 's religion is vain. You 've been warned that that tongue will be set on fire of hell. Trust Christ alone to be saved or 1 Cor 14 38 is your verse.
  • Doug Gresham on Matthew 24:36
    "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing but the honour of Kings is to search out a matter" ( Proverbs 25:2). Jesus repeats the commentary about not knowing the day or the hour approximately 8 times Between the Gospels and the beginning of Acts. I get the feeling there is more than meets the eye. The term "no one knows the hour or the day" is an idiom and probably commonly used in first century Judea regarding the timing of Rosh Hashanah. Each month was 29.5 days long and it was up to the rabbis of the Sanhedrin to ascertain whether the new moon had appeared or not to see if the next day was going to be Rosh Hashanah. Thus one possible interpretation would be that Jesus is giving us a hint that there will be something during the end times that occurs on Rosh Hashanah. The Jewish holidays already have been shown to be prophetic in terms of Jesus Christ. The last three holidays of the year are thought to be prophetic of future events when Christ returns. Perhaps there is more than meets the eye here. Maranatha!
  • André on Proverbs 3
    In case we are wronged, the Bible in the same book of Proverbs recommends that one should defend his/her cause, while keeping lawful.
    You may read that in Proverbs 25:9 where it says ‘’Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:’’
    God bless you.
  • Given K on Genesis 4
    This is for Mr. Anonymous.
    Please remember that it is not the principle or protocol of God to give us an account of everything in a chronological order. That would sought of promote laziness. Rather it is "precep upon precep,here a little and there a little". The work of joining everything in chronological order is best done through consultation and can well be done by wise men and women. This is work for the wise, the unwise will stumble. Remember, Proverbs 25:2, "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter." With good analysis, evaluation and connections, everything in the Bible is cohesive and conclusive. Just by reading this chapter, one can tell that hundreds of years elapsed between seemingly closely connected events. Bottom line is that God tests our faith through such things that tend to generate doubt.
  • Mike7 on Revelation 1
    What I meant by the reference to Mark 4, is that although the word "revelation" means to reveal, If you take the book literally, you WILL fall into error. for example in 1 John 2:18 it reads that antichrist was ALREADY in the world. So either he's a 2000 year old man, or it's referring to the spirit of antichrist, a lying spirit who's sole purpose is to lead people into error through false doctrines. Daniel 12:9 says that the seals would be tsken off the book at the time of the end. Don't trust what you may have been taught in a church. Compare scripture with scripture. Seek GOD'S wisdom, not man's. See Proverbs 25:2
