Speaking in tongues was one of Gods gifts to his people to help spread his message among His people. One the Day of Pentecost, in one local community there were 17 different languages spoken. They ALL heard the gospel in their own language.
I believe that tongues have ceased. The reason I believe that all tongues spoken today is a counterfeit is based on simple logic and basic commonsense. I found that as I conducted research for the book “the fake Jesus,” tongues actually DID cease as Paul told the Corinthians that they would. History reveals that tongues ceased for 19 centuriesThink about it. No Christian needed or ever heard of “a prayer language” for 1900 years!!!!!.
Why did tongues cease?
Well, because its purpose had been fulfilled.
Here is a quote from the Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.
“God Himself brought forth many languages to hinder the building of the tower of Babel. In Genesis 11, we read that because of the people’s rebellion, God confused the language of all the earth so that the people would not be able to understand each other’s speech, How ironic and counter-rebellious on the part of Maitreya. As Satan’s representative of endtimes, Maitreya plans to do just the opposite in Mystery Babylon, which includes the organized church. Maitreya’s goal is to cause all who speak in different tongues to hear him in ONE tongue. This is a complete reversal of God’s actions to hinder the tower of Babel. This is blasphemy to the nth degree. Anyone who does not close the door to self-induced passivity is at risk of becoming reprobate.”
In the Fake Jesus, the connection of the speaking in tongues movement to Satan’s endtime agenda is exposed.
The masses are being deceived by satan using his lies of being “slain in the spirit”.
Looking back over 30 years of ministry, I remember How I lusted after the power to manifest the slain in the spirit phenomena for about 10 years. When I finally obtained the power, I thought it would put my ministry on the map to mega-stardom. Yet, I began to watch and pray over those in my congregation who consistently fell slain. What I noticed is that most of the people who fell, were not able to STAND in their faith or for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of them were filled with sin. Once the Lord started sending me professing Christians who were in demonic torment, I soon discovered a significant sample of cases wherein people actually picked up demons in church services similar to those in this video clip.
Hear is a quote from the New Idolatry.
Christians have fallen under the power since the 1760′s. It was a common expression among the Shakers and also one of the signs of the ministry of Marie Woodward-Etter (1844-1924) KNOWN AS “THE TRANCE EVANGELIST.” About 15 years before the Azusa Street Revival that started the Pentecostal Church, Etter began manifesting the phenomena in her meetings in 1885.”
THE ALTERED STATE IS A HYPNOTIC TRANCE
Among my faithful Facebook friends is a cadre of serious believers who
continually share YouTube video clips, blogtalkradio programs, and various
articles that dramatically portray how the enemy has infiltrated the Christian
community with a variety of occult, even blasphemous doctrines and practices.
To name but a few, the list is long: the Joel’s Army movement is at the top of
the list because it encompasses It ALL!!
Then there is yoga, the kundalini spirit, TM, people running around the church looking like they are literally on fire, alien encounters, astral travel, slain in the spirit, the laughter and dancing movements, (I refuse to call them ‘holy’), tongue prayer
languages,—the list seems almost endless. In fact, even charismatic
sermonizing has caused people to become hysterical, breaking loose in church aisles, appearing to have lost their minds.
Yet, there are even stranger things going on that are a lot less public. As
an example, in my Christian telephone counseling practice of 10 years, I have
come in contact with Christians from around the world who are
constantly “hearing voices” yet they are not mentally ill. In 10 years, I have
been in contact with lots of churchgoers. Among them are people who thought that they were saved, but after careful consideration, they ultimately admitted that they were not—yet—they had spoken in tongues and had often submitted themselves to falling slain in the spirit in various charismatic churches.
Ministers laid hands on many of them to receive what is colloquially known as “an impartation.” When they began to be tormented in one way or the other, most of them sought help from deliverance ministries, yet their condition worsened. In fact, 75% of my Christian client contacts were hearing voices when they telephoned me for help—all of them were active and faithful church members. Some of them I could help, some of them, I could not, for one reason or another.
One thing that all of these strange happenings have in common is the altered
state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.” With that ONE
common denominator, I decided to “investigate” by examining a plethora
of occult websites, to see what devils and demons were openly revealing to
their faithful followers. In other words, “I spied out the land.” I figured
that even though Satan and his troops lie to their followers, they might reveal
something to them that they persevere to hide from true followers of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth. Believe me, it was a disgusting and dangerous assignment , so I do not recommend others do what I did. The blasphemy against the Lord is horrendous and those who are weak in faith might be victimized, even indoctrinated.
agenda which ties into why the altered state of consciousness—the trance– plays such a pivotal role in bringing about what the Anti-Christ intends to do. I have
written about this subject in 4 of my 6 books: Faces of the Religious Demon, the Fake Jesus, Come Out of Her God’s People, and the New Idolatry. However, if you are not into Christian non-fiction, then here it is in a nutshell:
With occult followers, it is an easy thing to do because they willingly put
themselves into trances by meditation, yoga, chanting, channeling, astral
travel, drugs, etc. With the people in the world, they enter into trances
through sex, drugs, movies, etc. So the enemy had to devise ways to open
doorways in Christians so that “we too will be able to hear the voice of the
Anti-Christ.” Satan is seeking for mankind to lose themselves in an altered
state of consciousness so as to provide an open doorway for demons to “walk in” when the time is right.
What I learned on the occult websites is that the Anti-Christ is going to
attempt to pull a global stunt where EVERYONE hears the voice of a stranger, saying the exact same thing at the exact same time. In this way, the son of perdition intends to prove “that he is God” because he will appear to be both omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent–manifesting the qualities of God Almighty. However, the only ones who will be able to hear his voice, will be those who have been opened to “the trance.”
opened door to it ALL OF IT. Once I got saved on March 29,1977, all
occult doorways were shut down. However, in 1982, I reopened them by heeding to the doctrines and the practices of the charismatic movement. For 25 years, I heard from religious demons, mostly in dreams and sometimes audibly, believing that I was hearing from the Holy Ghost. When the Lord opened my blind eyes to the truth, I shut down ALL of it: tongues, slain in the spirit, the laughter, the travail in the spirit—I MEAN ALL OF IT. I put up a spiritual blockade over my mind at night, that protects me from remembering what demons try to tell me in dreams. When God speaks to me now, I don’t feel ANYTHING. I simply “know things.” After a day or so I realize, “Oh, the Holy Ghost was here. Imagine that!”
Fallen angels stand by, patiently watching and waiting for their churchgoing prey to allow themselves to be induced into an altered state of consciousness by “any means necessary.” One they spot an opening, the religious angels seize the opportunity. The most classic example is that of Alice Bailey, the infamous founder of present day occultism. A churchgoing woman, Bailey is actually the founder of what is known today as “the occult.” Most startling is that Alice Bailey began as a Sunday School Teacher in a Presbyterian church.
