The Truth About Speaking In Tongues And The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit


On the subject of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues, we'd like to point out that the gift of tongues spoken of in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 is not the same thing as speaking in tongues as the "evidence" of the baptism of the Spirit. Note that we say "evidence", because there are believers who have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, but the evidence or confirmation--which is speaking in tongues--will come later. The Bible proves through its teachings that the gift of tongues and speaking in tongues are not the same thing.

Notice that passages that speak of people being filled with the Spirit say that they spoke in tongues, or that there was another visible sign of the baptism (Acts 2:4, 10:45-46). The passage of Acts 8:18 is the only one that does not say the people spoke in tongues when they were filled with the Spirit. Nevertheless, it does say, "When Simon SAW that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money."

Note that Scripture says, "...when Simon SAW...the Holy Ghost was given..." The Bible tells us God's Spirit is invisible (1 Timothy 1:17), so by "saw", we know there was some type of manifestation of the baptism in the Spirit that they received. Could the manifestation have been something like falling to the ground, or shouting praises? No, because had it been common for the baptism to be manifested in various ways, ¿how was Simon so sure they had received the Spirit? He affirmed that they had been baptized with the Spirit, and he was right, which the Bible confirms. On this note, we should ask ourselves that if speaking in tongues is simply one of the spiritual gifts God gives, why does everyone who is baptized in the Spirit receive the same gift...the gift of tongues? What about the other gifts? What's more is Jesus Himself calls speaking in tongues a sign. He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. In my name shall they cast out devils. They shall speak with new tongues." We cannot translate "sign" to "gift". Now we are going to see how the Bible debunks erroneous teachings on the baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. There is a reason why we read, "...Forbid not to speak with tongues." (1 Corinthians 14:39).

Speaking in Tongues: Foreign Languages or Gibberish?

Some say that according to chapters one and two of the book of Acts that speaking in tongues is only to preach in a foreign language. But the Bible lets us know that when someone speaks in tongues, it might be a foreign language (Acts, chapters one and two) or an angelic one. We read, "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of ANGELS..." (1 Corinthians 13:1). And we read, "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).

"Speaking in Tongues Causes Confusion"

Some say, "I don't think people should speak in tongues, because it only creates confusion, and it's not good not to understand what's being said." Such an opinion has no biblical support. We read, "Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret." (1 Corinthians 14:13). We also read, "What is it then? I will pray with the spirit. And I will pray with the understanding also." (1 Corinthians 14:15). "For God is not the author of confusion." (1 Corinthians 14:33).

"You Receive the Holy Spirit the Moment You Repent"

If this were true, why does Acts 19:2 say, "He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost SINCE ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost." This passage proves that receiving the Holy Ghost when you believe is not the same thing as receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

"I Don't Like Speaking in Tongues, Because..."

Some say they don't like speaking in tongues, because they're afraid that they, or the other person, has received tongues from the devil. Though this might sound like a legitimate fear, it isn't, in light of Jesus' words. Christ said, "If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:11-13).

"Speaking in Tongues Was Only For the Day of Pentecost"

To those who say tongues have ceased, what are we to think of the passage of Mark 16:17 which says, "These signs shall follow them that believe. In my name shall they cast out devils. They shall speak with new tongues." Believers in Jesus have not ceased to exist, so such signs that follow them have not ceased.

"People Are Only Magnifying Themselves When They Speak in Tongues"

We read: "For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify GOD..." (Acts 10:46).

"I'm Ashamed to Speak in Tongues"

"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." (Mark 8:38).
