In the previous articles “The day of the festival of Pentecost” and “Speaking in tongeus” we have cited that speaking in tongues or Glossolalia, was by the grace of God‘s Holy Power, the Holy Spirit, the holy Pneuma, which had been poured out on the disciples of Jesus gathered in the upper room in Jerusalem in the late Spring of CE 33.  They were surprised by a sound from the shamayim as of a groaning Ruach or a rushing stiff breeze, filled with the Ruach Hakodesh, the Holy Spirit or counsellor,  presented by tongues as if of fire, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Ruach Hakodesh or Pneuma gave them the utterance. It was bringing the followers of Christ outdoors to meet the foreigners, who were not pagans but returning returning Israelites in varying stages of return, who were there in Jerusalem for the annual festival of Pentecost, the Shavuot feast or moed of Shavuot . No pagans would go and worship יהוה YHWH {Jehovah} on Shavuot/Feast of Weeks.

It was not until the festival of Pentecost CE 33 that the gift of speaking in tongues was first received, and on that occasion it served as an effective evidence that Christians had God’s spirit upon them.

You can imagine the effect it had on the people in town when the Jews heard Jesus’ followers speaking in perhaps over a dozen different languages. But their talking at that time had nothing to do with what certain Christians today believe is ‘speaking in tongues’. The people at the beginning of the Chrisitian church heard the followers of Christ speaking in their tongues about the magnificent things of God and not in a sort gibberish or in ‘loud and fervent shouts’ of the Pentecostals. — (Acts 2:5-11) (Please do find our next article about the meaning of “filled with the Holy Spirit” and “speaking in tongues” : Meaning of “speaking in tongues”)
In “Is Speaking in Tongues an Evidence of True Worship?” a sister also goes deeper into the subject.
Knowing the beliefs of other religions always helps to understand why they think so or where certain religions go wrong. Therefore it is worth looking into the matter if speaking in tongues is really a necessary requirement of true worship. In the article the sister discusses the three chapters in which the apostle Paul discusses the gift of tongues.

This special gift of tongues received in Jerusalem through God’s holy spirit assisted the disciples there in preaching the good news for a sign to those Jewish worshippers from distant parts of the earth. But the real fulfilment of the prophecy of Joel 2:28-32 on that day of Pentecost was the fact that those who were filled with the spirit prophesied. Speaking with tongues was incidental, for a sign of authenticity or divine backing. — Acts 2:16-22. {Is Speaking in Tongues an Evidence of True Worship?}

To emphasize the importance and permanence of love as compared to the miraculous gifts of the spirit, the Apostle Paul wrote: “Love never fails. But whether there are gifts of prophesying, they will be done away with; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will be done away with.” — (1 Corinthians 13:8).
On the basis of Paul’s words here, there should be no question that the miraculous gifts of the spirit were to pass away. Find out in the above mentioned articles how Paul is comparing the temporariness of the gifts of the spirit with the permanence of love; and how he links the transitoriness of these gifts, not with unbelievers, but with the infancy of Christianity and how these miraculous gifts passed away when the community or congregation reached maturity by becoming a recognized, established organization. (1 Corinthians 13:9-13; Acts 8:18)

14 But Peter stood up with the eleven {1} and raised his voice and made this utterance to them: “Men of Ju·de′a and all YOU inhabitants of Jerusalem,{2} let this be known to YOU and give ear to my sayings. 15 These [people] are, in fact, not drunk,{3} as YOU suppose, for it is the third hour {*4} of the day. 16 On the contrary, this is what was said through the prophet Joel, 17 ‘“And in the last days,” God says, “I shall pour out some of my spirit {*5} upon every sort of flesh,{*6} and YOUR sons and YOUR daughters will prophesy and YOUR young men will see visions and YOUR old men {*7} will dream dreams;{8} 18 and even upon my men slaves and upon my women slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.{9} 19 And I will give portents in heaven above and signs on earth below, blood and fire and smoke mist;{9} 20 the sun {10} will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and illustrious day of Jehovah {*11} arrives.{12} 21 And everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah {*13} will be saved.”’{14}

  • What does it mean to speak in tongues? by Todd Clippard (braggschurchofchrist.com)
    There is a general misunderstanding, especially among modern pentecostals and charismatics as to the nature of tongues. Those who claim to speak in tongues today are referring to ecstatic utterances made after a so-called personal manifestation of the Holy Spirit. Ecstatic coming form the word “ecstasy” meaning to be beside oneself, beyond reason or self control, given over to extreme and engrossing emotions. Utterances are simply vocalized expressions. Participants in such babbling believe the Holy Spirit has taken over their verbalization and caused them to speak some heavenly language or tongues of angels.

  • The Baptism In The Holy Spirit for All is the Biblical Norm. (keithlannon.wordpress.com)
    To minister as New Testament preachers did without the baptism in the Holy Spirit would not be consistent with what Jesus commanded the 120 to do.  In the very mouth of Christ, before He returned to heaven, was the command for the disciples to stay in Jerusalem – ie: no preaching, no healing, no casting out demons, until they were baptised in the Holy Spirit. That was the priority that Jesus Christ placed on the Holy Ghost baptism.
    +
    The outward sign of the inward work of grace that John the Baptist referred to as, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, was unwelcome in many churches of the world when the Pentecostal move began. Zealous evangelical movements, as well as the lukewarm nominal denominations, ejected many “tongue talking” believers who had sought after and received what they believed to be the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The ejected regrouped into newly formed churches. These “new” churches referred to themselves as “Full Gospel”, or “Pentecostal Churches.” The first few decades of the outpouring saw an incredible growth of zealous, biblically based, supernaturally inclined Christianity. However, the growth of those early days was stultified somewhat as mid century approached.
  • William Dwight McKissic Gives a Biblical Basis for Speaking in Tongues In Private (blackchristiannews.com)
    If the Bible does not back the practice of speaking in tongues, then no believer–period–should speak in tongues at any place or at any time.
    +
    It is not my purpose, desire, or place to attempt to persuade all Baptists or all believers to speak in tongues. I do not believe that it is God’s will based on His Word for all believers to speak in tongues (1 Cor. 12:30). Although it is debated among those of us who speak in tongues, neither do I believe that every believer is capable of speaking in tongues–even if they desire to. God sovereignly determines which believer gets which gifts (1 Cor. 12:7-12).
    +
    Those of us who speak in tongues often during times of intense worship, devotion, prayer, and praise spontaneously often speak in tongues as the Sprit gives utterance (Acts 2:4). It is my opinion, but, I don’t believe their tongues speaking was limited to Pentecost only. I believe it carried over to their private devotions.

  • The Gift of Tongues (thetruesacrifice.wordpress.com)
    Does the bible state that speaking in tongues is proof of receiving the Holy Spirit? In this article i will show you biblical proof that what the majority of Christians are taught about tongues is indeed false and the tongues most christians think they are speaking may indeed be satanic.

    When Jesus was alive with his disciples, he instructed them not to preach to anyone who was not a Jew. You can read this in (Matthew 10). However, after Jesus died and resurrected, the command changed drastically. Jesus told his disciples almost the exact opposite in (ACTS 1:8). The time had come for the Apostles to preach to everyone whether or not they were Jew. Since Jesus went to his own people and they ended up killing him, Jesus made it then possible for anyone to be saved just by believing in him. This is the new covenant(testament). But how could the Apostles preach to everyone without being able to communicate with them? Good question! This is why Jesus gave them the gift of tongues so that they could preach to the Greek, Parthians, Medes, Elamites, Mesopotamians, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontos and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, In Egypt, Libya about Cyrene and so on… you can read the full list in (Acts 2:9-10) The apostles needed to preach to everyone and the only way to do so was to be able to speak those people’s language or tongue.

    The proof that you are saved and have the Holy Spirit is if you are Holy!! It is as simple as that. You will know if you are reborn or born again because you will be different.
  • Is Speaking in Tongues an Evidence of True Worship? (illustrationstoencourage.wordpress.com)
    someone may argue that there is a difference between the “gift of tongues” and the speaking in tongues as “evidence” of the outpouring of the holy spirit. All spoke in tongues upon receiving the spirit, they might say, but not all were later endowed with the “gift of tongues.” But where is the Scriptural support for such a supposition? It is lacking.
  • Wisdom: Evidence of God’s Breathe (mfmdelaware.wordpress.com)
    The spiritual gifts in the New Testament were also found in the Old Testament except for the gift of tongues. That marks the evidence of God’s nature in us. Demons speak in tongues as experienced on deliverance ground. The difference is that it is to confuse and deceive while that which is from the Holy Spirit caries power and fire. The one by demon entertains but that from God shakes the kingdom of darkness to the root and turns the believer to unquenchable flames of fire
  • Mark Driscoll Preaches About the Gift of Tongues (blackchristiannews.com)
    Cessationists, such as influential pastor and traditional Calvinist John MacArthur, believe that 1 Corinthians 13:8 and other Biblical passages indicate that the divine ability to speak in other languages or an unknown tongue (glossolalia) ended with the apostles’ deaths, as did prophetic revelations and faith-healings through individuals. Some Christians, however, believe that these Holy Spirit-inspired gifts will continue until Christ’s return.

    Twenty-five years later we find some people receiving the same Holy Ghost in the same way. He took over their vocal organs and spoke in another tongue. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues (Acts 19:6).

The Acts Of The Sent Ones Chapter 1

The Acts Of The Sent Ones = Maaseh Shlichim – Chapter 1

 

A historical book used to record the transition between the Jewish dispensation and the ‘New Yisrael’ church.

 

1 The first scroll have I made, O Theophilos, {1 Luke 1:3} of all that יהושע {Yahshua/ Yeshua/Jeshua (Jesus)} began both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Ruach Hakodesh had given His Torah to the shlichim whom He had chosen:
3 To whom also He showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen by them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the malchut of יהוה {Jehovah}.4 And, as He ate lechem together with them, {2 Aramaic Peshitta.}
He commanded them that they should not depart from Yahrushalayim, but wait for the Promise of Abba, which, He said, you have heard from Me.
5 For Yochanan ha Matbeel truly immersed with mayim;
but you shall be immersed with the Ruach Hakodesh not many days from now.
6 When they therefore had come together, they asked Him, saying, Master, will You at this time restore again the malchut to Yisrael? {3 When there is togetherness in believing Yisrael, the main concern will be the restoration and regathering of the two houses. These folks hardly agreed on anything, but with one accord were concerned that Yahshua was returning to the Father without Efrayim and Judah first being joined again as one in YHWH’s hand. This question set in a future tense, is valid and ample evidence that the restoration was paramount in Yahshua’s ministry, and moreover had never fully taken place previously, at the time of the Jews’ return from Babylonian exile, nor in Hezekiah, or Josiah’s days, as some erroneously claim.}
7 And He said to them, It is not for you to know the times, or the moadim, which Abba has put under His own authority. {4 Yahshua answered them in the future tense in verses 7-8, illustrating that His Father had not yet revealed the exact future timing of the full restoration to anyone. The question posed by the disciples and Messiah’s answer, forever dismisses any attempt to contrive, or fabricate some supposedly well-known, past reunion of the two houses, five hundred years before  Yahshua came in the flesh.
8 But you shall receive power, after the Ruach Hakodesh has come upon you: and you shall be witnesses to Me both in Yahrushalayim, and in all Yahudah, and in Shomron, and to the four corners of the olam. {5 Note the plan for regathering Yisrael clearly outlined. In context, this commission is given in response to the disciples’ question on how to restore Yisrael.  He told them that they could not know when it would be fully accomplished, but He told them the method by which it would come to pass. He sent them out to all Yisrael, both in Judea, in Samaria and the entire world. There is only one Great Commission, not three. In all three areas, lost sheep of Yisrael are to be found.}
9 And when He had spoken these things, while they looked, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked steadfastly toward the shamayim as He went up, see, two men stood by them in
white apparel; {1 In context, one messenger representing both houses that would be coming together by the proclaiming of
the Good News.}
11 Who also said, You men of Galil, why do you stand gazing up into the shamayim? This same יהושע {Yahshua/ Yeshua/Jeshua (Jesus)}, who is taken up from you into the shamayim, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into the shamayim. {2 Physically, bodily and back to the Mt. of Olives.}
12 Then they returned to Yahrushalayim from the har called Olives, which is from Yahrushalayim a Shabbat day’s journey.
{3 As determined by the Sanhedrin of that day. This concept became part of the Jewish oral law.}
13 And when they came back, they went up into an upper room, where there were staying Kepha, and Yaakov, and Yochanan, and Andri, Philip, and Toma, Bartholomi, and Mattityahu, Yaakov the son of Alphai, and Shimon the Zealot, and Yahudah the brother of Yaakov.
14 These all continued with one accord in the tefillot and supplication, {4 The upper room was the place where the prayer meeting of the leaders of Renewed Covenant Yisrael took place, but was not the place where the Spirit fell. The error of superimposing this prayer venue onto and into the events of chapter 2 has resulted in untold horror, tragedy and error, as seen in the alleged birth of a so-called gentile church.}
with the women, and Miryam the eema of יהושע {Yahshua/Jeshua}, and with His brothers.

15 And in those days Kepha stood up in the midst of the talmidim – the number of names together were about a hundred twenty – and said,
16 Men and Yisraelite brothers, this Katuv had to have been fulfilled, which the Ruach Hakodesh by the mouth of Dawid spoke before concerning Yahudah, who was a guide to them that took יהוה.
17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this service.
18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling head first, he burst open in the middle, and all his intestines gushed out.
19 And it was known to all the dwellers at Yahrushalayim; so that field is called in their own language, Akel-Dahma, that is to say, The Field of Dahm.
20 For it is written in the Scroll of Tehillim, Let his dwelling be desolate, and let no man dwell in it: and let his office of service be given to another.
21 It is therefore necessary that one of these men who have been with us all the time that the Savior יהושע {Yahshua/ Jeshua} went in and out among us, 22 Beginning from the mikvah of Yochanan ha Matbeel, to the same day that He was taken up from us, one must be ordained to be a witness with us of His resurrection.

23 And they appointed two, Yoseph called Bar-Nava, who was surnamed Justus, and Mattityahu.
24 And they made tefillah, and said, You, Master יהוה{Jehovah} who knows the levim of all men, show which of these two
You have chosen, {5 They prayed and asked simply because there weretwelve disciples from each of the twelve tribes ordained for kingdom rulership, and the one that needed to be chosen was one who was first and foremost faithful and also one who would be from the same tribe that Judas was from. Only YHWH knew that for certain.}

25 That he may take part of this service and calling, from which Yahudah by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. {6 As opposed to a faithful Yisraelite, who is said to be gathered to his people.}
26 And they gave out their lots; and the lot fell upon Mattityahu; and he was numbered with the eleven shlichim.

    The Bible does not command us to wear a unique prayer shawl or tallit. Instead, it presumes that people wore a garment of some type to cover themselves and instructs them to add fringes (tzitzit) to the 4 corners of these (Numbers 15:38, Deuteronomy 22:12).

    it is the Greek name or title of “Christ” in place of the Hebrew name, “Messiah” that is the very “name of blasphemy” of Revelations 13:1.

    In order to do God’s will, Jesus his disciples prayed also to Jehovah, like their teacher had showed them how to do: “Grant your slaves to keep speaking your word with all boldness.” What was Jehovah’s immediate response? “The place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were one and all filled with the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness.”
