34+Bible Verses About Speaking In Tongues – KJV Scripture

Dear brothers and sisters, the gift of speaking in tongues, as recorded in the Holy Bible, is a miraculous power given by the Holy Spirit. In the early church, this unique gift was a sign, a proof of God’s mighty work in the lives of His followers. Speaking in tongues is a phenomenon in which believers communicate in a language unknown to them, a language given by the Spirit.

Dear friends, imagine the day of Pentecost when the apostles began to speak in tongues. The diverse crowd gathered from different nations was amazed as they each heard God’s wonders in their own languages. It was not merely unloving, but a clear, purposeful communication through the Spirit.

Although not all believers receive this gift, it is still present in many Christian communities today. However, the Bible also urges us to seek the greater gift of prophecy, which builds up the whole church. Although speaking in tongues is a blessing, it should be practiced with discipline and should not cause confusion in the gathering.
