Here are two more kinds of tongues outlined in scripture
1 Corinthians 13:1
- The tongues of men
- The tongues of angels
What are the tongues of men?
- These are languages spoken by men
- English,French,Spanish,Hindi,etc are examples
- The ability to master such is a gift from God
- There was a Prime minister of India who was a master of 14 languages, showing that this gift is not restricted to believers
- If you or a loved one – maybe your child in school,has a difficulty with languages,it helps to pray for the gift
What are the tongues of angels?
- It is the language of the Spirit world
- We need to remember that the bible talks about good angels and also about dark angels (demons)
- Both have languages that comes under this broad category
- I once heard the use of tongues in the worship session of a cult that made me realize that tongues can come from demons too.
- How do we recognize/differentiate the truly Spirit filled believer?Jesus taught that they can be recognized not by the tongues they speak but by the fruit they bear.
- Another method is to fill your heart with Word of God and prayerfully operate in the gift of discernment.
