    Mark chapter 16:17-18. What does it mean when it says they shall speak with new tongues in KJV
  • Mishael on the Holy Spirit and Tongues - in Reply on Mark 16:15
    When you enter this website, use the search box on top and type in TONGUES. The engine will pull up ALL scriptures pertaining to tongues. I would click on the New Testament only, for this word.

    The Holy Spirit is your Teacher. He helps us understand Biblical truths.

    The gift of speaking in tongues that continues throughout church history and is so widespread today is the Holy Spirit-prompted ability to pray and praise God in a heavenly dialect, possibly even an angelic language that is not related to anything spoken on earth such as German or Swahili or Mandarin or English. The Holy Spirit personally crafts or creates a special and unique language that enables a Christian to speak to God in prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. This gift is not a human language that one might encounter in some foreign country, but a Spirit-empowered capacity to speak meaningful words that are only understood by the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (unless, of course, God provides the interpretation through the one speaking or through another believer.

    The more you learn about the Holy Spirit's ministry to you, the more you will desire all that He has purposed for you. 1 Corinthians 12, teaches about all the gifts

    (for believers). He knows where you are in your walk with God, and He will wait until you understand and desire His gifts. You should talk to Him and ask Him any questions about what you are learning through scripture. He responds to us through OUR inner spirit, where He indwells. His is the still small voice.

    If you ever hear something that frightens you; that's the devil trying to prevent you from following Jesus. Just say: I rebuke you, satan, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth! Get thee hence.

    If you'll scroll under the Search Box you'll see the Commentary Box; of Bible Teachers commentaries on that verse. Use the back arrow to get back to the Search box area.

    Hope this helps.
