    You know you don't know the Word of God, and it is causing you upset.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    Sadly, you are not proving that whatsoever.

    If anything you are just being a jerk who exalts experience above the logos of God.

    However, I will rephrase your question so that it properly addresses the issue.

    What have I believed of the word of God that indicates to me that I have eternal life?

    First, I met the requirements of Romans 10:9-10, thus received the gift of salvation/eternal life/holy spirit

    And the absolute proof that do have the gift of eternal life/salvation/holy spirit is that I manifest the gift of holy spirit. Specifically, I speak in tongues.

    Speaking in tongues is impossible to do unless you have received the gift of salvation/eternal life/holy spirit.

    That is the absolute proof.

    Whether you or anyone else likes it or not.

    Speaking in tongues ceased a long time ago.

    As for you using Romans 10:9-10, those scriptures are about having to believe and obey Jesus.

    Luke 6:46 "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?
    Oh how I love the Word of God!
    Do not just read the word do it.

    Speaking in tongues was a gift given, a sign, given (Isaiah 28:11) during the laying of the foundation of the Church (Hebrews 2:4). It was a sign to the Jews (Acts 2:6). Speaking in tongues has served God's purpose, God has given the sign (1Cor 14:21), and God has laid the foundation (Eph 2:20). Speaking in tongues by the Gentiles showed the Jews that God granted even the Gentiles repentance unto life (Acts 11:18). Tongue speakers spoke mysteries (1 Cor 14:2); consequently, the mystery of the gospel has been given (Eph 6:19). Speaking in tongues is the language of angels (1 Cor 13:1), angels minister to humans (Hebrews 1:14). Humans are to understand speaking in tongues in earthly languages (Acts 2:6, 11). Speaking in tongues would be “stilled” (1 Cor 13:8).

    The believers in the Bible times who spoke in tongues, they spoke in tongues supernaturally. The believers who supposedly speak in tongues nowadays, they speak gibberish and believe God turns their gibberish into supernatural language, and that is a false doctrine.

    According to you , yes it has,

    However, according to scripture it has not. It will continue to be an ability of those who are saved until we see Jesus face to face. I Corinthians 13:10-12

    I can see that you do not know me whatsoever, if you would make false accusations

    So when are you going to list a scripture that says that tongues have ceased?

    That scripture does not say tongues would cease when we see Jesus face to face. That scripture is about when the Bible is finished and all to be revealed is revealed. I can prove it easily by reminding you that no one can add to the Bible.

    Is Jesus love?

    Please answer that and give the scripture that says Jesus is love.

    If you look at the overall picture of the Bible, you'll see that once Paul shows up on the scene, the number of miracles being performed drops off significantly, and by the end of Acts, and certainly throughout Paul's writings, we see very few, if any, miracles being performed. We can reasonably argue that after the end of Acts, the faucet of miracles has been closed.

    You need to see the context of I Corinthians 13:10-12 to make that call.

    If you actually read the context of those verses, ie, I Corinthians 12-14, it is about spiritual matters, which includes speaking in tongues as well as other spiritual matters.
