5 reasons God may have chosen speaking in tongues

10 reasons God may have chosen to use the gift of tongues.

1. It takes faith on the speakers part.

2. The gift at Pentecost was the converse of what happened at Babel (i.e. speech was re-unified).

3. It provides a spectacular sign to the hearer (esp. when in their own native language).

4. It cuts the devil out of the loop – I don’t believe he can interpret this private line with God.

5. Man is a speaking spirit, life and death is in our tongue, so we can speak life.

Ultimately though, the choice for speaking in tongues is down to His Soveriegn will, He is God and can do as He chooses with, through, in and by us.

    I want you to know that I truly enjoy your blog. These reasons why God would have chosen tongues are exactly what my Pastor preaches as well:) I am very grateful to have received the GIFT of the holy ghost with evidence of speaking in other tongues as the SPIRIT gives me the ability. Be blessed.

    Brother just as a question, what reasons should we give to our friends that don’t speak in tongues yet?
