Mark 16:15-20I believed all my life .. and was baptized twice .. once as an infant, and again in my late 20's into a bible church ..
but I was born again-became a new creature & received the HS about 7 years ago ..
(basically I finally began loving God with my ALL)
I received the gift of teaching .. this to me is the most prized gift because it requires the HS to work closely with me on an almost daily basis ..
1Cr 12:28 And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues.
1Cr 12:29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they?
1Cr 12:30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they?
They shall speak with new tongues, that a out as plain as it can get,and the verse you quoted does not say ALL will speak in tongues ..
that is your exegesis ..
Paul is asking a question not stating a fact, there is a question mark at the end of the saying by Paul, other scriptures will say that all speak with tongues when they repent and are properly baptized according to The Word.
indeed .. I know prophets and healers who have never spoke in tongues ..I was the same as you. Not everyone gets / wants the gift though .
he is stating a FACT ..Paul is asking a question not stating a fact, there is a question mark at the end of the saying by Paul, other scriptures will say that all speak with tongues when they repent and are properly baptized according to The Word.
We are all accountable for our own salvation, I only say what the Bible says, I do not think I read what Jesus gives me in his Word.indeed .. I know prophets and healers who have never spoke in tongues ..
nor did I when I received my gift .. nor do I want to ..
I like being in control of what my mouth says ..
I like when my heart, mind and soul praise God in unison ..
now your being silly ..There is a question mark at the end, jot and tittle, he is saying search the scripture for the answer.
