Gibberish is not the language of God. Speaking gibberish is not speaking in tongues. God is not the author of confusion. Gibberish in this sense is not only confusion, but spiritually comes from the devil himself, the author of confusion.
And God would never by pass the mind or conscience to speak to us. The devil is the only one who by passes the mind to possess the person. Where the individual has no control or even an awareness at times of what they’re doing.
Speaking in tongues was known as a gift of the Holy spirit to communicate the Gospel in different languages. it was for the edification of the Church. Henceforth, there had to be an interpreter, according to the Scriptures.
Glossolalia is the same practice, practiced in Hindu mysticism, the ancient civilization of the Greeks and etc?
And if it is the same practice it is of the same spirit. Repackaged as a Christian practice. Hence, why the emphasis is put on the practice rather than Jesus Christ to receive a false spirit.
Hence, why Paul who is often misquoted on this subject is ignored on a lot of important factors concerning the gift.
Considering the gift of tongues whoever speaks in tongues better have an interpreter or be silent. 1 Corinthians 14:28
And if there is a demand for an interpretation, then how can it be something that others can’t understand?
In the Hindu practice it as part of the Kundalini experience.
In the ancient Greek: “Ecstatic language was a common form of worship in pagan temples. It was well established in Ancient Byblos (1100 BC). Plato (429-347 BC) mentions it as a phenomenon in his time. He tells us that a person under divine possession received utterances and visions that the receiver did not understand.”
“These utterances were sometimes accompanied by physical healing of people present. Virgil (70-19 BC) tells us that the Sibylline priestess, when in prayer, united her spirit with the god Apollo and spoke in strange tongues.”
There’s a need to be a revision of the scriptures, because many are becoming sick believing they’ve experienced enlightenment and healing by this practice.
Speaking in tongues is not speaking gibberish to yourself or around people or to others. People who are either mentally disoriented or psychologically ill or possessed, do that. Therefore, speaking in tongues is the miraculous gift of communicating the Gospel in different languages using intelligible words. Hence, Acts 2:5-11.
How else is the Gospel ment to be spread throughout the world if it’s just a gift, that you can understand, and not others?
‘For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.” 1 Corinthians 14:2
If we speak in our own tongue (language) we speak to God unknown to someone of a different language, who is not going to understand. Uttering mysteries of the Spirit, things inspired by the Holy Spirit which would of course edify himself. So of course when we speak in tongues, in our own Languages as a people we speak unto God. But then when it comes to speaking to someone who has a different language from you, there has to be an interpretation or someone who can interpret.
If you then pray in the spirit inexpressively. Using nonsensical, unintelligible and incomprehensible words then your speaking gibberish.
You can’t honestly express yourself to God not knowing what your saying by speaking gibberish.
There’s also, made up interpretations for gibberish to give false affirmations.
The Greek translation of tongue is language.
Paul likens tongues ( languages) to distinctive instruments. So tongues is only unknown in a sense of not being able to speak it, but not unknown in sound. That’s how we know if someone is French or Spanish or German. They all have a distinctive sound because of their dialect. And in 1 Corinthians 14:7-12 makes it perfectly clear.
“7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?
8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?
9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.
10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.”
And to claim to be speaking in tongues to people without an interpreter, even though Paul says there has to be one is in vain deceit. For Paul says,
“But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.”1 Corinthians 14:28
“For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is
Paul is talking about if he prays in a different tongue, language unknown to himself for others who are of that language. His spirit then expresses it in prayer, but his understanding of that language is unfruitful to him. Since it is not His common language. Hence, some have the gift of tongues, and others may just have the gift of interpretation.
“Do all have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?”
1 Corinthians 12:30
And if speaking in tongues is considered to be the least of the gifts, then how can it be the ultimate sign of a true believer?
“I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.” 1 Corinthians 14:5
Paul says a prophesier is greater than He that speaks in tongues. Lest he can interpret for the edification of the Church, which is deny as a language to be communicated to others. Other than that, the gift is consider to be the least in comparison.
“13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 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, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
And no we can not speak the tongues of Angels. Paul is saying, if he was to speak with the tongues of Angels, not saying that he can, and has the gifts of tongues, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and all faith to remove mountains, and gives goods to the poor to feed them. He is saying if he can do all these things, and have not love, he is nothing, and it profits him nothing.
