Have You Ever Witnessed The Gift Of Interpretation Of Tongues by Willy7(m): 11:19pm On Dec 20, 2012
As a christian and active worshiper,i've witnessed and most times experienced the diverse gifts of the Holy Spirit as listed in 1 cor.12:7-12,but i'm yet to even see one person manifesting the gift of interpretation of tongues recorded in the verse 10 of the said chapter.I'm having the thought that after the pentecost,such gift never existed again.Today we hear so many kinds of tongues been spoken,but nobody interprets or can tell what its been spoken,not even the speaker.And this leaves me with the question,Have you ever seen or witnessed this gift in operation before? Please no insults,i need matured inputs.Thanks

I have but in all honesty, and I am a Christian, I didn't believe the guys. What I saw in operation was 2 guys speaking in tongues, one would speak, the other would interpret, then the other would speak, and the first one would interpret. I simply felt they were both 'interpreting' what they both wanted to say. Know what I mean? grin

When I was a kid, this was one of my first clear clues that Christianity was a crock of bullshít. The tongues people were speaking were clearly just gibberish. And I never once heard anybody speak in a real, known language, which is what Acts of the Apostles was clearly talking about.

I kept looking for someone who'd start speaking Cantonese or some other foreign tongue. Instead, all I kept hearing was "rabababa mamamama shokoraba" Even a 10 year old can tell the difference between a strange language and gibberish.

How other Christians fail to realize this is beyond me. None are so blind as those who refuse to see.

Actually I know of an old illiterate woman in a church I attended when I was back in Enugu who only speaks Igbo and cannot speak a word of English but whenever she prays in tongues, she prophesies in English.

I have also heard the testimony of a muslim who came to Enugu for a conference and while the church was praying, a particular brother was praying in tongues and speaking in Hausa and this muslim (now ex-muslim) was listening to him and asking questions in his heart while the brother who was speaking in tongues was giving him direct answers to the thoughts in his heart. That is how the guy got saved from Islam and came to Christ. Mind you, the guy that was praying did not know how to speak Hausa at all.

I can tell you about the first day I spoke in tongues. I remember consciously trying not to speak but whenever I opened my mouth, the words came bubbling out. I remember going down on my knees and crying because I was a skeptic and it had only been about a few weeks since I came to the knowledge of Christ but the Holy Spirit chose to give me an experience that cleared all doubt for me.

Anyone who feels that the gibberish spouted in those loony sessions is in any way meaningful is ALREADY a certified nut-case candidate who is eminently qualified to don a strait jacket DEEP in the loony bin, and that is no lie.

No sir indeed. I only hear real voices spoken by real people. None of that imaginary chit for me ha ha ha

On second thoughts, however, when I behold a really hot young woman, a commanding voice in my head reminds me that she must be the custodian of some truly tight red snapper, and that it is my sacred duty to enquire further.

I think I've witnessed interpretaion of tongue in TAC. Its quite rare but it happens.
Sometimes when I want to prophesy, I start with speaking in tongues.
No one can determine the kind of tongues to speak; whether Chinese, Hausa, Spanish or Itshekiri. It might even be an unearthly language. Whatever it is, receive it with faith.

I speak in tongues by the grace of God and I can interpret what I'm saying. Speaking in tongue is for you to communicate with God in the spirit, more like a secret language between you and God. This is because the devil does not know what you are saying when you speak in tongues.

There is a big difference between translation and interpretation............translation mean converting tongues to our day to day language....interpretation means bringing out the meaning......so a tobgue cab be 10min and interpreted in 2min and vicesersa...so when u speak in tongue whatever meaning ur spirit attached to it is the interpretation

You cannot say that someone is speaking rubbish just because what you can hear is gibberish, let God be the judge after all it is him we are trying to communicate with. I remember the first day I ever spoke in tongues. I told God that I don't want to talk rubbish but that he should make me know that it is indeed from him. I remember we were told to lift up our hands and just talk to Jesus, while I was saying thank you Father for a beautiful day and so on, suddenly a very powerful but light wind/force pushed me to the ground, I started rolling and when I opened my mouth to say you are the alpha and the omega a different language came out. It felt as if my tongue was loosed and I started talking I kept on speaking in this strange language for over an hour. If I try to speak in English, a different language will come out

Some of these topics being brought up for debates and comments in this forum full of atheists and mockers only lead to blasphemy.These should be rather discussed among Christians.
