Recent Comments on Speaking in Tongues

On June 6, 2011, someone using the moniker of dwbunch2011 posted the following comment: “I am 74 and have been around all sorts of things.Speaking in Tongues The tongue thing could be
understood by taking a close look at 1 Cor. 14: 21,22 and running the references. It is a sign gift to the Jewish people of a coming devastation and scattering. That occurred around 70 AD and the gift ceased.”

Then recently on January 23, 2012, someone using the moniker that christain fellow posted "Hi I would like to talk to dwbunch2011 privately about this issue, but have no idea how to go about doing that.."

I responded as follows: “We never heard from dwbunch2011 after he posted that once. I did not respond to him because it was obvious he did not know what he was talking about. As Kenneth Hagan used to say, "I'll take the person with the experience over the person with the theory."

Immediately after answering ‘that christain fellow’ I sat down for my daily Bible study. As is my custom, I just randomly opened the New Testament to see if the Lord had anything specific for me today. This is the absolute truth--I opened to Peter’s interaction with Cornelius as follows:

Act 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. Act 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Act 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.
