Christ can you speak in tongues anytime you want?

i was taught to speak in tongues 23 years ago soon after I found Jesus. I am currently attending an apostolic church. i was told that that this was wrong. I was also told that people can not speak in tongues anytime that they want to but only when the Holy Spirit gives them utterance. Would you share your experiences and beliefs in this matter with me. thank you. I have also been told that I am not saved until I speak in tongues. barbara

Please explain this to me because no man can teach you to speak in tongues. Togues is the language of Of the Holy Spirit only He can give you a different tongue.

well explaining would be hard to do. i was at the alter seeking the Holy Spirit and this woman approached me and asked me if i was seeking the Holy Spirit. i said that i was. she knelt down beside me and said that there was an easier way. she said she could teach me to speak in tongues and that it wasnt necessary to remain at the alter seeking Him. She also told me not to tell anyone in church because they would be angry and not understand. She said it works just the same. i was ignorant at the time and figured that she claimed to know and i knew that i didnt know so i listened to her. it is hard to go back 23 years in time to remember exactly what she taught me. how can i tell if i have the Holy Spirit or not?

thank you. I have also been told that I am not saved until I speak in tongues. barbara
I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit With the evidence of speaking in other tongues at a young age. The bible says the spirit of a prophet is subject to the prophet. Yes you can speak in tongues when you want. That is much of my prayer language. As far as speak in tongues to be saved hogwash. Jesus is your salvation not tongues. If you accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour than you are saved tongues or not. Tongues is of the Holy Spirit. It is Him speaking through you. Tongues has nothing to do with salvation.

I couldn't always speak in tongues anytime I wanted, but now I'm at a point in my life where it seems that I can.

An easier way I don't think so. My dear what ever that woman taught you forget it. The bible says that tongues is from the Holy Spirit. No one can teach you to speak in tongues unless it is a false tongue. You were right to seek the Holy Spirit. Do it again this time don't stop for anyone or anything.

You know, if you've been using your language to pray and praise God-be thankful. Jesus has baptised you in His Holy Spirit. Just because she gave you a few pointers to make it easier doesn't mean you've been faking it all along-If you were, you'ld know you were. You CAN speak in tongues anytime you want. The Spirit gives you the utterance and also the desire to do this. You cannot manifest the gift of tongues at will-but praying in tongues is just like praying in your native tongue-you can start or stop at anytime-the Holy Spirit will give you the words to say-but you do the speaking.

"THEY began to speak as the Spirit enabled them"-Acts 2:4

We speak in tongues as the Spirit gives us utterance. You have to make a conscious decision to open your mouth and let the words happen. So it's a collaboration between you and the Holy Spirit

You ARE saved even if you don't speak in tongues...the criterea for salvation is. IF you BELIEVE in your HEART and CONFESS with your MOUTH that Jesus is Lord, You WILL be saved!

Peace

I was "filled with the Holy Spirit" 34 years ago. As I continued to seek for the "baptism with the Holy Spirit," 6 months later the Lord spoke these words to me:

"My son, I filled you with the gift of the Holy Spirit 6 months ago. The gift of tongues is a gift I desire all my children to have whom I have filled with the Holy Spirit. The gift is yours if you in faith choose to partake of this gift."

So in faith I opened my mouth and began speaking tongues as the Spirit gave utterance. As I exercised more and more praying in the Spirit in my prayer language, I realized I could pray in tongues "anytime" I chose.

Prophesying in tongues with interpretation is "not" something you can do anytime you wish, but it is a gifting that becomes better through exercise as you learn to separate your prayer language from the anointing tongues/interpretation gift of the Holy Spirit.

You do not need to do any of this to be saved, but it sure helps you along the journey into eternity with Jesus.

Blessings
