My experience was the first time, when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit, that the words just flowed from my mouth as I was praying, really without any kind of foreknowledge.... Now when I pray in tongues there will be times when specific words will come to mind to pray, and at others I just begin praying and as I get more in tune with the Lord my prayer tongue comes out and I begin praying in tongues that way....

What do you mean specific words come to your mind? Is it WORDS that you don't know? or WORDS you do know??

When you pray in tongues, do you think of something?? Or like this,

You think of something you understand. You pray in your mind of something but the WORDS that comes out to your mouth are language that you do not understand??

As far as I can tell speaking in tongues something that happens when the Holy Spirit wants it to, not something you can do yourself.

Its a GIFT from God to Some , not all. In fact, few in the genuine sense . If God wants you to have this gift, you wont have to prime-the-pump to get it --- you will have it as easy as it is for you to speak English and it will come upon you suddenly and naturally.

Here is a treatise done on Tongues by Someone who diligently investigated this Gift ; these are things you should be aware of :

"Tounges means foreign language- look up the word for this gift in any language the Bible has been written in and look up that definition. you will find answers of "(foreign) language or dialect". Example is the original ancient Greek (glossolalia) which is 'to speak languages'. when someone down the road is said to speak a tounge, you know they speak a language or dialect unfamiliar to you.
So this means the churches who teach that tongues is also sounds of holy joy from the spirit such as chittering, laughing, crying, moaning, mooing, clucking or barking are incorrect.
tongues is plural- every reference to the gift in scripture is plural with only the exception of a specific person speaking a specific language. It is the ability to speak and/or understand foriegn languages.
So this means the churches who teach that tounges is a single language from heaven between God, angels and you, if you have the spirit, are incorrect.
there is only one kind of tounges gift- I never found any scriptural support for a tounges that was only for prayer and another that was for the congregation/public. All information from scripture points to the one ability of speaking foreign languages you previously didn't know.
So this means the churches who teach that there are different forms of tounges are incorrect.
tongues must be understood by all people around you and done in orderly fashion- this is something that Paul tried to pound into the heads of the Corinthian congregation. Everyone, including the speaker, must understand what was said either by already knowing that language or by a translator. Otherwise it was a waste of time and cannot be proven to be a genuine gift.
So this means the churches who practice mosh pit-like tongues extravaganzas or who never have an interpreted tongue message are in error.
tongues was for a sign to unbelievers and for edification of the church body- direct quotes from The Apostle Paul. Anyone who didnt believe Jesus was the real deal and that the church now belongs to ALL who believe would be proven wrong by the confirmation of this gift and that would in turn strengthen the church as a whole and add to it's ranks.
So this means the churches who teach that tongues is for a deeper personal connection to God is incorrect.
tongues may have passed away long ago-there are many compelling reasons to believe this to be true and i have acctually confirmed it for the gift of prophecy simply due to the biblical definition of a prophet. I personally haven't yet put a headstone on tongues, but i do say that if the genuine gift does still exist, it must be incredibly rare. I haven't experienced or heard of any credible accounts of the true gift being used combined that with the purpose and usefulness of such a gift is all but gone.
So this brings into question any church that teaches this gift is attainable, let alone mandatory for the church body.
When I did this study it was acctually hard to find a tongues supporter that was willing to talk about it. The one pastor I did find to talk to me gave his ideas of what it was all about and a few scriptures.. a couple of which had nothing to do with spiritual gifts or tongues. Even the Assembly of God main website stated that some of its core doctrine was not found in scripture, but was based on "assumptions and deductions from an apparent pattern found in the book of acts". it's like alot of people belived in it and had stories of experiences to tell me, but they couldnt tell me why or explain anything with any real satisfaction"

I'm thanking GOD with my ENGLISH language
then SUDDENLY, I speak in a LANGUAGE I Do not
know..

My mind is thanking GOD in ENGLISH Language
BUT my WORDS is thanking GOD in a language
I do not know...

It is just Around 10 seconds
And I STOPPED.

because I was so Surprised

Romans 8:26
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

this verse(Rom 8:26) happened to me. My prayer suddenly became so fast and the words came out.

1 Corinthians 14:2
2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue[a] does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.

I know of very few people who speak in tongues as it is revealed in scripture.

At the church we first attended when we lived on the Sunshine Coast, a couple
there experienced speaking in tongues, turns out they were speaking a dialect
of the Czech language...a man visiting the church was astounded because it
was his native language and he'd not heard it since leaving the county as a young man.

My husband spoke in tongues when he severely crushed his leg at work, it was the first time
he'd ever spoke in tongues and the presence of the Holy Spirit in his hospital room
was strong.
That's when I felt that everything would be alright and though he was
in life and death struggle at the time, he would live.

My husband's faith walk has increased two-fold and he even did some witnessing
while he was in the hospital recovering from having his left leg amputated.
We have a lot of on-going medical issues (especially my husband) but he has
a wonderful outlook and not once has he cursed God.
We are nearly 3 yrs. into this new area of life and are handling all
the ups and downs with the Lord's help.
God has done amazing things for us -- we are provided for spiritually, emotionally
and financially.

I would encourage you to rely on the Lord (submit) and be willing to be a "vessel"
He can use.

1 Corinthians 14:2
2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue[a] does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.

Hi. In Romans 8:26 note that its THE SPIRIT of God that is groaning as he intercedes for us, and not us . In 1 Cor. 14:2 , we are told (elsewhere in 1 Cor. 12 and 14) it is supposed to be followed up with an Interpretation either from a seperate individual and if not, then the person giving the tongue message is supposed TO KNOW how it accurately translates out in english.

The Tongue is supposed to be an ACTUAL world language , different than your normal language --- it is supposed to be a definitive language that exists and is spoken in some part of the world where if that Person were present with you, he would be totally amazed at hearing his own native tongue being spoken by someone else . Further, it should be spoken on and on just like you can in english when you talk ... and not only for 10 seconds or so.

We need to be very careful that it is a genuine gift from God , and not just utterances in a moment of elation or because we want to talk to God using non-english resemblence of words mixed together.

Lastly, we should never be made to feel we need to talk in Tongues in order to be accepted by Others or a Church in general , because many other people are doing it. And im afraid such is the case with modern Christianity today because No One wants to feel they are 'a Have-Not' .

Finally, it is a genuine gift...just not as common as many think it is because Satan has fooled so many with a counterfiet version as he is so good at doing. Regards.

You don;t force it. Ask the Lord to give you the gift, and watch His power when you believe.

Or tell me. What else?
Give your life to Christ, allow Him live in you and you live in Him, Ask the Father for gifts, and believe, He will give you the gifts you desire.

If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?

Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself.
Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us - Romans 8

I LOVE YOU JESUS!!!!!

while he was in the hospital recovering from having his left leg amputated.
We have a lot of on-going medical issues (especially my husband) but he has
a wonderful outlook and not once has he cursed God.
We are nearly 3 yrs. into this new area of life and are handling all
the ups and downs with the Lord's help.
God has done amazing things for us -- we are provided for spiritually, emotionally
and financially.

I would encourage you to rely on the Lord (submit) and be willing to be a "vessel"
He can use.

Wow!!! What a nice couple I believe that the BEST COUPLES in the WORLD is that Christ is the CENTER of their lives... Keep on growing your FAITH Thank you so much for your reply

And yeah. I rely to the LORD anytime, everytime. I'm willing so much.. I'am nothing on my own. Without the PRESENCE of GOD, his GUIDANCE I'am nothing.. I'm willing to be a "vessel", I ask GOD when I pray almost everytime to use me in every possible way...

Yeah the SPIRIT intercedes for me partially. I consult my PROFESSOR regarding on this.. My PROFESSOR said that the HOLY SPIRIT partially intercedes for me. My Professor's experience was different from mine. He's experience was the greatest, I think he said, ROM(8:26) He experienced this three times?? The first time was he's tongue begin to move so fast that he cannot even control. Then he's mouth is speaking in language he doesn't know.. The second time was when he was praying, the HOLY SPIRIT intercedes for him. CRYING for him, praying for him. He said that he's just watching the spirit intercedes for him. I think the 3rd time was the same.. this experience was great. I believe I will experience this in God's time.

Further, it should be spoken on and on just like you can in english when you talk ... and not only for 10 seconds or so.
Rom(8:26) Happened 10 seconds. I'm talking about GOD's Spirit enabled me to speak in tongues.. My mind is thanking him so much in english but I was so surprised the WORDS that came out in my mind is not ENGLISH.. Then now, I can speak in tongues, pray in tongues whenever I want to. I just allow the HOLY SPIRIT ....

What do you mean?? Sorry I'm a bit bad in understanding ENGLISH...

Finally, it is a genuine gift...just not as common as many think it is because Satan has fooled so many with a counterfiet as he is so good at doing. Regards.

I don't want to be a show-off because I have this gift.

I give my life. I allow him, and he now lives in me because I' am a new creation.. (2Cor5:17) I already ask him, and believe instantly that received the GIFT of TONGUES then when I just want to thank him in my own words. I began to speak in tongues....
