How can we know anything about anything? That's the real question

 Is there a difference between the unknown tongue and the gift of tongues?



You are born again into the Church and out of the world so that you can grow. You grow as the Holy Spirit conforms you to the image of Christ, your Ministry in the Body of Christ. This is a process that goes from glory to glory. When everything is in complete unity with God's will and built according to God's Pattern as He gave it in Scripture, the Body and the Head (Jesus) will be joined as one totally complete man. This is the manifestation or the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

There Is A Huge Difference Between The Gift On Tongues And Interpretation And The Gift Of The Unknown Tongue

The Holy Spirit
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is real and available to you today.
Speaking in tongues is Biblical.
Liberalism rejects the power of the Holy Spirit

Only if a person is moved upon by the Holy Spirit can they believe and receive salvation. That is plain in Scripture. Yet, there is a difference between having the Holy Spirit move upon us so we can believe and being baptized (immersed) in the Holy Spirit and speaking to God and to angels in the unknown tongue. A follower of Christ doesn't have to speak in tongues, but they get to, and the Bible says that it builds them up. They don't get saved to speak in tongues, but it's a lot like when you buy shoes--you don't buy a pair of tongues; the tongues just come along with the shoes. Just as with other gifts of God (healing, prayer, the fruit of the Spirit, etc.) some Christians reject God's free gifts.

In addition to the free gift of the unknown tongue that all receive, there is a gift of tongues by which only some gifted persons may speak in the tongues of men--human tongues. There is also a gift of interpretation of tongues. We see this manifest in the twentieth Century church, though not as much as we should see it. It is a testimony, a miracle, to the unsaved.

The gift of the unknown tongue

1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue speaketh not to men, but to God: for no man understandeth [him]; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

1 Corinthians 14:5-6 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater [is] he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. Now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?


1 Corinthians 14:14-15 For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

1 Corinthians 14:18-19 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that [by my voice] I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an [unknown] tongue.

The Spiritual Gift of Tongues and Interpretation--given only to some according to God's will.

1 Corinthians 14:21-22 In the law it is written, With [men of] other tongues and other lips will I speak to this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying [serveth] not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

1 Corinthians 14:26-28 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done to edifying. If any man speak in an [unknown] tongue, [let it be] by two, or at the most [by] three, and [that] by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

1 Corinthians 14:39-40 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.

1Co 12:10 and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; and to another the interpretation of tongues:

2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

There is so much more for you. This is what you have been missing. Don't let anyone deceptively keep you from fulfilling your destiny and God's purpose for your life.

Prayer, Bible, Unity

God has established the pattern of Scripture, for life and for the Church.

You can feel free to use the Contact Form further down on this page to ask any question regarding this pattern of Scripture. The Church, the Body of Christ, and discernment of this Body, is the method that God is using to finish the work in His Body. The Body of Christ, God's Temple, is built up by that which every joint supplies, building each other up in love, and the Temple must be built according to the pattern of Scripture.



We believe the Holy Scriptures teach:
  • The 5 apostolic ministries (Ephesians 4:11)
  • The nine gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
  • Local congregations overseen by elders and deacons (Titus 1:5)
  • Every member having and being a ministry in the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:11)
  • Being led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14)
  • The gathering together of the Body of Christ (Genesis 49:10, John 17:21)

If you seek God, you will find Him through His Son, Jesus.

Revelation 22:19 And if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which have been written in this Book.

John 10:35b the Scripture cannot be broken,

Human theology and reasoning is not necessarily correct, but the Bible is without error. The Bible can only be understood by revelation, and revelation is given by the Spirit of God. God does reveal in His own way. But we only know in part. If we think we know any thing, we do not know it as we ought. We are instructed, by God, to keep seeking Him. The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. The truth sets us free. Lies bind us. Whoever seeks Jesus does find Him. Jesus is the truth.
