This Booklet will unravel the Problem of Speaking in Tongues in the So called Charismatic Churches By reading the following scripture from Act 2 it is quite clear that Speaking in Tongues is to be understood as speaking in Different Languages. After the ascension and because of Judas’s betrayal and death, the 11 Apostles met with the 120 disciples to select one of their number to be the twelfth Apostle who was called Matthias. Acts 1.26 And they [The 12] gave lots for them [The 2 disciples selected]; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles. And when the day of Pentecost was now come [sometime later not the same day], they [the Now 12 Apostles] were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a soundP as of the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they [the 12] were sitting. And there appeared unto them [the 12] tonguesG parting asunder, like as of fire; and it [the Tongue] sat upon each one of them [the 12]. Acts 1.26- 2.4 When The Tongues appeared they must have been in the shape of a Human Tongue and also as a Flame to carry such a description as ‘Tongues of Fire’. 4 And they [the 12] were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with different [ἑτέραις] tongues [γλώσσαις]G as the Spirit gave them [the 12] utterance. 5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven... 6 And when this soundP was heard, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speaking in his own [ἰδίᾳ] language [διαλέκτῳ]D. We understand from this that God must have supernaturally imprinted into the minds of the Apostles the ability to suddenly speak Different Languages thus enabling them to speak in a Foreign Tongue to the unbelievers, without having to learn Languages in the normal way. This was the reverse of the events related to us in Gen 11 where God confused the language of humans at the tower of Babel. The confusion of the language was a Miraculous Event.
