Tongues! Get it! Got it! Good!


Some mornings, Yahuah speaks to us in such a way that you drop everything and cling to every word. Well, that happened to me this morning as Yah chose to speak to me through another believer. The topic was: Debunking the Mystery of Speaking in Tongues by John Bevere.

Personally, in trying to understand this Scriptural topic known to be very divisive among believers, I have listened to various pros and cons. Like most double minded topics among believers, there is some truth on both sides. However, Yah’s mind on this topic is NOT double minded and it is His mind and understanding that we desire. Yah patiently awaits for His corporate body of believers to be of one mind on this gift.

Well, today, I am convinced that this understanding we are about to delve into is our encounter with the water of Meribah and Massah [Exodus 17:1-7]. The Biblical text mentions these two very similar episodes that both occur at a place named Meribah. The episode recounted in Exodus 17 features the Israelites quarreling with Moses about the lack of water, and Moses rebuking the Israelites for testing Yahweh;[6] verse 7 states that it was on this account that the place gained the name Massah, meaning testing, and the name Meribah meaning quarreling. [excerpt Wikipedia]

John Bevere first distinguishes that there are 4 Types of Tongues in the New Testament, two are public and two are private.

The Two Public Tongues are:

1. First, there is the tongue for unbelievers such as on the Day of Pentecost. The unbelievers heard the Gospel in their own language.

1Co 14:22 So then tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers, and prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe.

2. Secondly, there is the tongue for interpretation. This tongue is a gift that has to be interpreted.

1Co 12:10 and to another operations of powers, and to another prophecy, and to another discerning of spirits, and to another kinds of tongues, and to another interpretation of tongues.

The Two Private Tongues are:

3. Tongues of intercession.

Rom 8:26 And in the same way the Spirit does help in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groanings unutterable.

Rom 8:27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the set-apart ones according to Elohim.

4. Tongues for personal prayers. Your prayers and songs may alternate between tongues and your known language.

1Co 14:14 For if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit is praying, but my understanding is without fruit.

1Co 14:15 What then is it? I shall pray with the spirit, and I shall also pray with the understanding. I shall sing with the spirit, and I shall also sing with the understanding.

Joh 6:63 “It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh does not profit at all. The words that I speak to you are Spirit and are life.d Footnote: dSee Joh_6:68 and 1Co_15:45.

Go into His Word, and let His Spirit reveal all truth, power, and love! To hear from Him, we must not hold unforgiveness in our hearts and we must ask in unwavering faith without being double-minded.

Isa 28:10 For it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

Isa 28:11 For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people,

Isa 28:12 to whom He said, “This is the rest, give rest to the weary,” and, “This is the refreshing.” But they would not hear.

Here are the video links covering my blog and flowing into John Bevere’s anointed teaching, Debunking the Mystery of Speaking in Tongues.

Enter into His rest! HalleluYAH! Another double-minded topic among believers bites the dust and now we can have the mind of Yahusha, Jesus of Nazareth, on this gift of tongues.

Blessings, Libby
