    We'll have to just disagree because I see prophecies still being fulfilled and more to be fulfilled. I hear tongues too and there is also knowledge that is increasing every day.

    Doesn't matter.
    GOD's word is what settles the matter.

    Such as?


    and more to be fulfilled.
    Definitely.



    I hear tongues too and there is also knowledge that is increasing every day.
    The gibberish babel that passes for tongues today is not the tongues of scripture.
    The gibberish babel can be faked easily.
    That's why most folks rely so much on these so-called "tongues" instead of healing and raising the dead and casting out devils, etc.

    Mark 16:17-18 KJV
    (17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
    (18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

    We know from just observing the world around us that these signs do not follow all that believe.
    And yet we still have those babbling gibberish tongue talkers thinking that just that one sign, which is easiest to fake, is sufficient.
    How convenient is that?!
    Notice, it does not say "One sign might follow some believers", but that these signs (plural) will follow believers.

    And when we get to the apostle Paul, we see that these signs had already began to disappear, as he could not even heal his own infirmities.
    Paul even asked GOD to relieve him of his infirmity, but GOD did not and told Paul that GOD's grace was sufficient. (2 Cor 12:8-9).

    "The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name." Exodus 15:3

    Last June, I was standing in front of the microwave heating Tostitos dip and I was listening to a youtube video of the three men that jumped off the freedom towers. The next thing I know I heard one of the guys talking and it reminded me of a friend of mine and in my mind I was thinking how could he have been two places at once cuz I knew he was not jumping off the freedom tower on that date and it was really bizarre to me and so all of a sudden it was like God flicked The Dominoes and I saw all the synchronicity and the connection in my life, I spoke in French Latin and Hebrew and at one point I was on the floor shaking like something was coming out of me as if I was coming unprogrammed. Before this incident started painting obsessively, one night I woke up from that Twilight state of sleep and I painted Jesus and as I did I painted his crown and I went and I wept as i painted - I could not stop crying it was like I felt all of his pain and then I did a series of paintings of Mary and I feel like there was something untold regarding her and like she was working through me ,the spirit of her. So now, I'm an artist. after that night I ended up understanding two portions of the Qur'an in Arabic, I have prophecy through my paintings ,prophecy in general discernment, I speak in tongues now and it's very overwhelming for me cuz I wasn't living the best life. I've been a drug addict off and on my entire life and I felt disconnected from everything and everybody but in that moment I felt connected to everything and I had this heightened state of awareness it was like I could see myself going from level to level when I make a bad decision I can feel myself going from the Realms here and I don't know if anybody understands that or not but it's very overwhelming especially when you don't feel Worthy so I'm really struggling with that aspect of it and where my place is in this world. also I'm surrounded by thirteenth birthdays my birthday is July 13th my 4 best friends are 13th birthdays, my two neighbors thirteenth birthdays. I was in the hospital with the woman that I gave canvas to and she said it saved her and she's also a 13th birthday. I met three people in the past few months and I already knew that they were 13 birthdays before they even told me .I was on an elevator at a hotel and this woman looked at me and said you have a very hard job to do but I didn't know what she was talking about and people come up to me random places and really weird things happen to me all the time so I rarely leave the house now I'm just trying to find out where I fit in everything so I was on YouTube, where I post my songs and a Gentleman commented on a few so him and I started conversing and he led me to this site he said that a lot of beautiful things are happening to me and that this would be a good place to talk about them and get some advice so here I am.
    It's a lot to take in. I have 18 min of the night I got taken over. It's very emotional. If you would like to see it, I will post here. Thank you for reading this post. It means so much to me.
    I pray for all of us in the world. That God continues to work in and all around us abd that the veil be lifted. We are all one, made in His LIKENESS and we can all have all of the incredible gifts that I have obtained. I wish people recognized abd believed that with their mind body and soul because it really hurts deep being shunned and alienated like I am. I'm sure some of you understand.

    Have a blessed day and thank you again.

    I agree most tongues today are nonsense but occasionally it is the real thing. Paul actually recognised this:

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

    Notice he also includes prophecy and knowledge. And Paul goes further:

    1 Corinthians 14
    20Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults. 21In the Law it is written:

    “With other tongues
    and through the lips of foreigners
    I will speak to this people,
    but even then they will not listen to me,
    says the Lord.”

    22Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, however, is not for unbelievers but for believers. 23So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? 24But if an unbeliever or an inquirer comes in while everyone is prophesying, they are convicted of sin and are brought under judgment by all, 25as the secrets of their hearts are laid bare. So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!”

    26What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up. 27If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret. 28If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and to God.

    Also, prophecy is currently being fulfilled everyday, just look at Israel for example and how it is becoming the most powerful nation on earth just as prophesied:

    Luke 21
    29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.

    The fig tree is Israel of course and the other trees are the other nations, the summer is referring the Jesus' return and the harvest of the souls of mankind.

    Isaiah 66:8
    Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.

    In 1949 Israel finally became an independent nation again after the Israeli War for Independence that lasted from 15 May 1948 to 20 July 1949. The war lasted nine months the same time a woman is in labour

    Jesus also prophsised:

    Matthew 24:34
    Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

    In Psalms we read that a generation can last eighty years:

    Psalm 90:10
    Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

    Eighty years from 1949 AD will be 2029 which is about 2000 years from when Jesus won the victory on the cross, and also who said:

    Luke 13:32
    And he said unto them, “Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out demons, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected”.

    Just as Hosea said:

    Hosea 6:2
    After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence.

    And Peter said:

    2 Peter 3:8
    But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the LORD a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day

    And Moses said:

    Psalm 90:4
    A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.

    There are many other allusions throughout the Bible to the 7000 year time line that reflects the seven days of creation and Jesus' millennial reign representing the Sabbath day of rest. The Bible dates the Earth to nearly being 6000 years old and Jesus said:

    Matthew 12:8
    For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

    I have heared but never interpreted and I can't talk in tongues either but scripturally they are still in operation and will remain so until all things are restored, which includes the lifting of the confusion God caused at the tower of Babel. Eventually we will all speak the same tongue on the new Earth and Heaven.

    I saw it happen one day at a women's Bible Study I attended. A gal got up and spoke in "tongues" and then she interpreted it herself. When she started saying, "I worship you....yada yada" I almost laughed. To her credit, she did correct herself, and said, "I got carried away...".

    Understood by someone, or understood by everyone?

    I ask because at Pentecost everyone heard what was being said, not just in their own language, but in their own dialect.

    "The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name." Exodus 15:3

    No and I doubt it could be proven that way as you would still need to trust everyone was telling the truth. However I have heard testimonials of if it happening and that it was genuine but ultimately if you are after proof then you would need to see it happen with people you trust are being genuine.

    Understood by one or more people.

    Not sure what you mean by dialect, Acts only says; 'because each one heard their own language being spoken' and 'each of us hears them in our native language'. It then lists each language which are distinct languages rather than dialects that are forms of a distinct language.

    Act 2
    3They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tonguesa as the Spirit enabled them.
    5Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,b 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11(both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!”
