Interpretation of Tongues

Interpretation of Tongues

Now this is where it gets interesting. I have traveled to other countries and entertained myself by speaking to the locals. Even though they may be speaking in my native tongue – English, their accents can make it very difficult to make out the words they are saying. A person can use a word and depending on the facial or tone of voice they use the word can mean or seem to mean something very different.

In Christian theology, interpretation of tongues is one of the spiritual gifts. This gift is used in conjunction with that of the gift of tongues—the supernatural ability to speak in a language (tongue) unknown to the speaker. The gift of interpretation is the supernatural enablement to express in an intelligible language an utterance spoken in an unknown tongue. This is not learned but imparted by the Holy Spirit; therefore, it should not be confused with the acquired skill of language interpretation. While cessationist Christians believe this miraculous charism has ceased, Pentecostal and charismatic Christians believe this gift continues to operate within the church. The gift of the interpretation of tongues is exercised when someone speaks with the gift of tongues in a gathering of people or a church environment. The purpose of interpretation of unknown tongues is so the congregation may understand the message given in an incomprehensible language or tongue.

In the Old Testament at Belshazzar’s banquet when God wrote the words, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin” on the wall of the banquet hall with a finger. Words unknown to the Babylonians, Daniel translated the words to mean, “Numbered, numbered, weighed and divided;” Daniel also interpreted the words to mean, “God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it, thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persian” . Therefore, these words incomprehensible to man and written by God, then translated and interpreted by the Prophet Daniel prophetically announced the demise of the Babylonian kingdom in 538 BC when Darius of the Medes and the Persians overtook the Babylonian Empire.

Communicating to God or Spirit is a very different form of language… many people believe prayer is when you are talking and meditation is when you are listening to God.

Some people communicate using their other senses; by seeing, feeling, hearing & knowing (using the vibration of pictures, feelings, thoughts and inner voice).

Try something very old… open your mind to hear and understand what is being communicated.
