1 Corinthians 13 Speaking In Tongues

Blondy Church of God in Hohenwald, Tennesse and Disturbing Churches of Christ.

Speaking in tongue is gibberish, singing and playing instruments:
Nike-Laity where the WOMEN sing the VICTORY songs.

"Tongues" means "Language." Only the Mad Women of Corinth and Apollon's oracle made mad noises while under the influence of drugs or music.  Only the 12 Apostles were baptized with Holy Spirit [There is no THE there] in the upper room. This was prophesied when Jesus BREATHED on the Apostles and said or promised RECEIVE HOLY SPIRIT or Breath.

The MAN Jesus was born IN THE FLESH 30 years before He was SANCTIFIED and Sent.  He was not both Lord and Christ until He was resurrected from the dead as the PATTERN for those who are SANCTIFIED as He was when He was baptized.

When SPIRIT rested on Jesus, rested and other such words, means that a voice SPOKE.  Paul was the other Apostle who was sanctified and sent after he was baptized TO WASH AWAY His sins. He had the gift of speaking in all of the TONGUES meaning DIALECTS not commonly understood.

1Cor. 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with TONGUES more than ye all:
1Cor. 14:19 Yet IN THE CHURCH
The Church or Ekklesia, like the synagogue (Paul's Words) NO ONE sang, played instruments or SPOKE THEIR OWN WORDS. Jesus said those who speak on their own are the children of the Devil.
h4744.Miqra.gif

        I had rather speak five words with my UNDERSTANDING,
        that by MY VOICE might TEACH others also,
        than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.


Acts 9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house;
        and putting his hands on him said,
        Brother Saul, the Lord, even JESUS,
        that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest,
        hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight,
        and be filled with the Holy SPIRIT.
Acts 9:20 And straightway he PREACHED Christ in the synagogues,
        that he is the Son of God.
 
God always puts His WORDS into the MOUTH of A Moses, The Prophets and LASTLY the Mouth of Jesus.  SPIRIT is a figurative or PARABLE word to explain how God does not need A Holy Spirit Person to make Himself INTELLIGIBLE.

 Paul could speak many LANGUAGES because He was sent to Gentiles SO THAT He could preach the Gospel.

Those who believe NOT Jesus saying "He that believes and is Baptized shall be saved." The Believe Nots or Apistos are evil people OF the World and Jesus diied for the SINS of the World but He didn't PRAY for them. Anyone who fiddles with baptism in prophecy, example of Jesus, Commands of Jesus and part of the historic APOSTOLIC doctrine will be speaking from the spirits OF Demons or simply mocking the silly preacher to not, in the Swaggart message, leave here UNSAVED.

Acts 16:6  Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia,
        and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
Acts 16:7ASV After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia:
        but the Spirit of Christ suffered them no

Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen THEE,
        that thou shouldest know HIS WILL,
        and SEE that Just One,
        and shouldest HEAR the voice of his MOUTH.
Acts 22:15 For thou shalt be HIS WITNESS unto all men
        of what thou hast SEEN AND HEARD
Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
        arise, and be BAPTIZED,
        and WASH away thy sins,
        calling on the name of the Lord.

Acts 23:11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said,
    Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast TESTIFIED  of me in Jerusalem,
        so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;

Acts 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles,
..         unto whom now I send thee, 

Acts 26:18 
         See                                         To open their eyes, and

.    .   Remission                            that they may receive forgiveness of sins,
..       Gift of Spirit                          and inheritance among them
..                                                 

Acts 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them,
        which from among the Gentiles are turned [converted] to God:

THIS IS WHAT JESUS CHRIST THE SPIRIT COMMANDED:

Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;

Acts 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles,
..         unto whom now I send thee, 

Acts 26:18 
   
     See                                         To open their eyes, and
..       Repent and be baptized       to TURN from darkness to light,
..                                                       and from the power of Satan unto God,
.    .   Remission                             THAT they may receive forgiveness of sins,
..       Gift of Spirit                           and inheritance among them
..                                                       which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

So, Jesus as The Holy Spirit refutes the idea that anyone is saved by "speaking an unlearned languages."

Acts 26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa,
        I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
Acts 26:20 But
shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem,
        and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, t
        hat they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

Conversion always demands obedience.

Deut XXX WEB. It shall happen, when all these things are come on you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, where Yahweh your God has driven you,

[2]  and shall RETURN to Yahweh your God, and shall OBEY his voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul;

[3]  that then Yahweh your God will turn your captivity, and have compassion on you, and will return and gather you from all the peoples, where Yahweh your God has scattered you.

           Being BAPTIZED is parallel to CONVERSION.
YOUR PREACHER FOR WHICH THERE IS NO ROLE AND NO DOLE IS INTIMIDATING YOU SO THAT YOU PAY HIM THE ILLEGIAL TITHES AND OFFERINGS.

BEFORE THE INSPIRED WRITERS FINISHED THEIR PARTS "FOR OUR MEMORY" PEOPLE, BY THE HANDS OF AN APOSTLE RECEIVED SUPERNATURAL GIFTS TO TEACH ONLY THE WORD WHICH HAD BEEN DELIVERED BY JESUS.

EVEN BACK THEN SOMETHING IS FISHY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE PERSON WHO CAN SPEAK SPANISH WHEN IN SPAIN PREACHING THE GOSPLE.

The Ephesian 12 were Baptized into Christ "for the forgiveness of sins." Paul an APOSTLE laid His hands on the 12 and they PROPHESIED or Taught the WORD by inspiration.  The result was that ALL of the Province HEARD THE WORD.

Ezek 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of

Ezek 3:6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language,
        whose words thou canst not understand.
        Surely, had I sent thee to them,
        they would have hearkened unto thee.

Ezek 3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me:
         for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.

Ezek 3:8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.

Ezek 3:9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead:

John Chrysostom Homily XXIX


And the Pythoness too: (for I am compelled now to bring forward and expose another disgraceful custom of theirs, which it were well to pass by, because it is unseemly for us to mention such things; but that you may more clearly know their shame it is necessary to mention it,

that hence at least ye may come to know the madness and exceeding mockery of those that make use of the soothsayers:) this same Pythoness then is said, being a female, to sit at times upon the tripod of Apollo astride, and thus the evil spirit ascending from beneath and entering the lower part of her body,

fills the woman with madness, and she with dishevelled hair begins to play the bacchanal and to foam at the mouth, and thus being in a frenzy to utter the words of her madness.

I know that you are ashamed and blush when you hear these things: but they glory both in the disgrace and in the madness which I have described. These then and all such things. Paul was bringing forward when he said, "Ye know that when ye were Gentiles, ye were led away unto those dumb idols, howsoever ye might be led."

And because he was discoursing with those who knew well, he states not all things with exact care, not wishing to be troublesome to them, but having reminded them only and brought all into their recollection, he soon quits the point, hastening to the subject before him.

But what is, "unto those dumb idols?" These soothsayers used to be led and dragged unto them.

But if they be themselves dumb, how did they give responses to others? And wherefore did the demon lead them to the images? As men taken in war, and in chains, and rendering at the same time his deceit plausible. Thus, to keep men from the notion that it was just a dumb stone, they were earnest to rivet the people to the idols that their own style and title might be inscribed upon them.

Sincere people at Corinth were travelers and spoke "minor dialect" where most understood Koine Greek which was the language of merchants.  They "thought" in their minor dialect but were commanded to TRANSLATE into Koine.

1Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,
        and have not charity,
        I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

This is not speaking as in the command to SPEAK one to another to teach and comfort. Sounding brass and tinkling cymbals here are identifying marks of people who have NO LOVE. Even if they COULD speak all of the languages in the world there would be no love. The command is to SPEAK or LOGOS the Word of Christ which is the opposite of rhetoric, singing or playing instruments. Speaking in the tongues of angels was IN FACT making music in tongues.

If you recognize us as gods, we shall be your divining Muses, through us you will know the winds and the seasons, summer, [725] winter, and the temperate months. We shall not withdraw ourselves to the highest clouds like Zeus, but shall be among you and shall give to you [730] and to your children and the children of your children, health and wealth, long life, peace, youth, laughter, songs and feasts; in short, you will all be so well off, [735] that you will be weary and cloyed with enjoyment.
If you are a rhetorician, singer or instrument player John in Revelation 18 calls you a sorcerer: if you are a sorcerer or witch:

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Paul will define a prophet as Teaching the Word of God with Speaking: Logos or opposite poetry or music. These are the Locusts or music Apollo unleashed and John calls Sorcerers in Revelation 18 working for the Babylon Mother of Harlots.

1Corinthians 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

The trumpet was for sending signals: if someone makes music it might getyou killed:

Xen. Cav. 3.11 In the sham fight when the regiments pursue and fly from one another at the gallop in two squadrons of five regiments, each side led by its commander, the regiments should ride through one another. How formidable they will look when they charge front to front; how imposing when, after sweeping across the Hippodrome, they stand facing one another again; how splendid, when the trumpet sounds and they charge once more at a quicker pace!

[12] After the halt, the trumpet should sound once more, and they should charge yet a third time at top speed; and when they have crossed, they should all range themselves in battle line preparatory to being dismissed, and ride up to the Council, just as you are accustomed to do.

Paul spoke LOGOS in clear conversational style because the purpose was to TEACH the Word of Christ.

Paul is warning about pagan rituals which involved the actual buring of bodies including the Jews in Jerusalem. Therefore, paul repudiates both Judaism and paganism where loud music helped drown out the screams so the priests could hear the voice of Molech etal.


Plato in Cratylus mystically connects her name (Rhea) with the idea of 'flowing' (from the Greek reo--'to flow') [Rheology, for example, is the science of fluid flow.], meaning thereby simply 'that fontal power by which she contains in transcendent union the divisible rivers of life'. Rhea, is, therefore, the 'mother of lives,' the mystical Eve [Zoe], the 'mother of all living.'

Proclus (Theol. Plat. Taylor's ed., i.267) says that according to Orpheus, 'This Goddess, when considered as united to Saturn by the most exalted part of her essence, is called Rhea; but considered as producing Jupiter, and together with Jupiter unfolding the total and partial orders of the Gods [i.e., the powers of the Sensible World], she is called Ceres.' This is a very important distinction to bear in mind.

Now Rhea, as Ceres, in Hymn XIV, is called 'brass-sounding' and 'drum-beating'. This has reference to the mystical results of certain sounds and rhythm, part and parcel of what the Hindus call Mantravidyâ. I remember reading a curious old French book in the Bibliothčque de la Ville of Clermont-Ferrand, one of the books confiscated from the Minime Monastery of the same town, at the time of the Revolution.

This work dealt with the magical properties of music, and described for what especial purposes the various instruments of music were used in the Temple-service of the Jews.

Acts 7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

Asarians, Asriel, Israel, a name of the War god {Exodus, xiii. 21, 22, xiv. 25), Saturn and the Sun. The Fire-god Azar was the God of war, and M'irs was the Sun. — Macrob. I. xvii. OS

But these fire-worshippers carried with them the arks of Moloch and Khiun (Life-god), their Adon, and they had, like the other peoples of the Delta, their Mysteries, which the priests instituted. They took with them from Phoenicia, probably, a certain knowledge of fixed vocal signs; and it would not be safe to deny to Syria the possession of some sort of (Syrian) hieroglyphs

Remphan, (hrem-fan') is the King James Version of the Bible's rendering of the Greek word variously appearing in Acts 7 verse 43 as Ρομφα, Ρεμφάν, Ρεμφαμ, Ραιφαν, and Ρεφαν. It is part of a quotation from Amos 5 verse 26 where the Septuagint's reading raiphan or rephan stands the Hebrew Chiun or Kewan. The Greek forms are probably simple mistakes for the Hebrew, k (qoppa) having been replaced by r (resh) and ph substituted for v (yod). Kewan is probably the Old Babylonian Kayawanu, the planet Saturn, another (the Akkadian) name for which is Sakkut, which appears as Siccuth in the earlier part of the verse.

THE MUSIC AT THE ARCANE RITES. Iamblichus III

In addition to these things you remark as follows: "So also certain others of these ecstatics become entheast or inspired when they hear cymbals, drums, or some choral chant, 21 as, for example, those who are engaged in the Korybantic Rites, those who are possessed at the Sabazian festival and those who are celebrating the Rites of the Divine Mother."

21. Some exhibition of this kind is described by the Apostle Paul in the first Epistle to the Corinthians. "If," says he, "the whole assembly come together to the same place and all prattle in tongues, and common men should come in, or unbelievers, will they not say that you are raving?"

Hence he counsels that only two or three should speak in turn, and one interpret; but if nobody present is capable of this, they should keep silence, and speak only to themselves and to God:

       "for not of tumult is he a god, but of tranquillity." (Ovid; Fasti IV,
       "The attendants beat the brass, and the hoarse-sounding hides. Cymbals
        they strike in place of helmets, tambourines for the shields; the pipe yielded its Phrygian notes.")

22. The Korybantes are variously described. Their cult was identified or closely allied to that of the Kabeirian divinities, and that of the Great Mother. It was celebrated in the islands of the Aegean Sea and in Phygia. Music, dancing, processions, and ecstatic frenzy were characteristics. [The Fruits in Amos and Revelation 18]

Amos 8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.
Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

23. Sabazios, Sabaoth, or Sabbat, the god of the Planet Saturn, was better known as Bacchus or Dionysos, and was also styled in Semitic countries, Iao or Yava. His worship was more or less associated and identified with that of the Great Mother, under various designations, and it was characterized by phallephoric [carrying the penis] processions, dances, mourning for the slain divinity, and the Watch Night. It came from Assyria as its peculiar symbols, the ivy or kissos, the spotted robe or Nimr, and the Thyrso, indicate.

The name Zagreus the Kissos and nimr remind us of Kissaia or Asiatic Ethiopia, and the Zagros mountains occupied by the Nimr. Assyria was called "the land of Nimrod." -Amos VIII.

Because God turned Israel over to worship the starry host whatever they called their god in the Monarchy he/they was not the God of Abraham.  Christ came to PUT DOWN that evil system and not replace it with another worship patternism.
 
Paul in reinforcing what he and other Jews had practiced from the wilderness onward by attending the synagogue which quarantined the godly people from the Civil-Military-Clergy system turned over to worship the starry host.  Both the laded burden and the REST Jesus gave us stops all of the rhetoric, singing or playing instruments.
