    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

  1. Watched and moved to video forum.
  2. Link to your pdf does not work. It is also part of a book for sale. Who wrote it? Where is the link to their site/information?
  3. May I inquire if this is what you have come here for, to share these prophecies?
  4. The point is this is one way that God uses these gifts to bring messages to the body. This is what He has set up. It takes faith in the gifts, including being close enough to feel the Holy Spirit in order to determine if the message is real or not. I would venture to say that this is why so many false teachers and prophets go wrong, they are not close enough to Him to know test the spirits. The book of Acts portrays the gift when addressing people of other tongues, foreigners. Those who spoke did so in the native language of those who were listening without even knowing the language. This is one way the Holy Spirit bring forth His message to all. Unbelievers would see the faith in those who believe through the use of the gifts, yes, even tongues. They wold be like everyone else if there were nobody to interpret. Yes, you could fake it, as many do, and that would be an offense against God, not man. I would also add that there is one more way the Spirit speaks using tongues. That is in prayer. I pray a lot in tongues and have the faith in Him that it is for my best, even if I never know what is being prayed for.
  5. You are incorrect with your opening statement above. Please read the follow passages in scripture found in 1 Corinthians 12 - 14 In here, you will see that there are different tongues. You will also see that nobody understands a tongue given in another earthly language unless it is in a language one knows, which is why there needs to be an interpretation. If someone speaks in a tongue of an angels, they will always need an interpretation. 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing. 1 Corinthians 14 Prophecy and Tongues Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. Tongues Must Be Interpreted But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either by revelation, by knowledge, by prophesying, or by teaching? Even things without life, whether flute or harp, when they make a sound, unless they make a distinction in the sounds, how will it be known what is piped or played? For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle? So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air. There are, it may be, so many kinds of languages in the world, and none of them is without significance. Therefore, if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to him who speaks, and he who speaks will be a foreigner to me. Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel. Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say “Amen” at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say? For you indeed give thanks well, but the other is not edified. I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all; yet in the church I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I may teach others also, than ten thousand words in a tongue. Tongues a Sign to Unbelievers Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature. In the law it is written: “With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; And yet, for all that, they will not hear Me,” says the Lord. Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe. Therefore if the whole church comes together in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those who are uninformed or unbelievers, will they not say that you are out of your mind? But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you. Order in Church Meetings How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God. Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church. Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant. Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.
  6. It does matter if one believes the gifts are for today or not. Those who will, will receive, and those who do not, will not receive. It really is that simple. Just like if someone does not believe in Jesus, the gift of salvation is still real. Those who do not believe in Jesus will feverishly claim that Jesus is not real. Because they do not believe does not relinquish the truth of salvation through our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. He still remains. So with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Why would there be a need for an interpreter if someone were to know the language spoken? You have to realize that tongues are not just about Acts, but also 1 Corinthians 13 & 14 where Paul clearly states there are different tongues. We cannot deny scripture if we hold scripture to be true ... all of it.
  7. Bible codes and Gnosticism is the flip sides of the same coin, but false and dangerous.
  8. I also know passive aggressive statements, and studying his word is never insulting. Have a good evening yourself.
  9. That is almost word for word from the site BlackSheepProphecies. Is that you site?
  10. Please don't start belittling people by implying that people need more studying if they happen to mention something you do not agree with. If you take a real good look at what I posted you would notice I was addressing what the fruit did, not which was more serious. Care to star over?
  11. If you really want to know the truth of scripture, trusting your own understanding, you will need to sturdy Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek enough to have a full understanding and then study the codices themselves. For me, I will trust the Holy Spirit to teach me through His words and His body.
  12. I'm not so sure I would agree. Scripture tells us "Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil." Before eating the fruit, Adam and Eve did not know good and evil. Seems there was something really wrong with the discovery beside disobeying God.
  13. Welcome MLT3117. I moved your thread here so you can get replies without the need for approval.
  14. I fully believe one can be brought to heaven spiritually. What I don't believe is that someone can can do battle with demons the same way, "spirit walking" as it was put.
  15. There will never be a true balance as long as there is greed and materialistic desires above what is needed.
