When Tongues Ceased According To The Bible


When Tongues Ceased According To The Bible

The answer to when the speaking in tongues ceased is taught in the Bible. Since it has ceased, then what is going on today?
Tongues were a sign to Israel…….Israel was destroyed and scattered in 70 A.D. The sign must then cease!
Today’s tongues are not supported by scripture. Find out the truth in the article below.

Tongues It’s Biblical Purpose
Who is Paul Quoting?
I do believe that Paul is quoting Isaiah 28:11 here in , 1Cor.14:21″ In the law it is written, „With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.”,
1Cor. 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe”,
These verses are clear that tongues purpose was as a sign to THIS PEOPLE.
We must ask ourselves who is…..”THIS PEOPLE ” and what kind of sign was it ?
The „law” was given to Israel.This people is ISRAEL.
NOT THE CHURCH OR GENTILES!
The Church is not mentioned anywhere in the Old testament.It was a secret revealed through New Testament Teachings.
Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
The 14 th chapter of Corinthinians teaches clearly that tongues was a sign to unbelieving ISRAEL.
1Cor:14:22: Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.
What kind of sign was tongues?
If we look „in the law”,Isaiah 28:11 we see that tongues was a sign of soon coming judgement upon ISRAEL.Read below and see for yourself.
You see,the Apostle Paul when he said „in the law” ,is QUOTING……….
Isa:28:11″ For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.12: To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
13: But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
14: Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15: Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17: *Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18: And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19: From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
20: For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
21: For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

Tongues Was A Warning Sign OF JUDGMENT
1Cor. 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe”,
Tongues was a warning sign of judgment to come TO UNBELIEVING ISRAEL (not to the gentiles), that Isaiah said would precede an oncoming Judgment… Even Jesus spoke of a judgment shortly to come ……
Matthew21: 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard (obviously Israel) cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them. 46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
THE ABOVE AND BELOW VERSES WERE FULFILLED IN 70A.D.!
Luke 19:41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If the hadst known, even the, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.43 „For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because the knewest not the time of thy visitation.”
Mark12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner”(notice the connection with Isaiah 28:16)

WE KNOW WHEN TONGUES CEASED
If tongues was a „warning” sign,and the judgment was fulfilled in 70 a.d.,then we know when tongues CEASED as Paul said it would. 1 cor 13,8: „Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away’
The word cease means that it will end, in and of itself.
Fail and vanish are different in that they mean that they will need to have something in the future to complete it.
We err if we put tongues in the same catagory or context with knowlege and prophecy.
Scriptures point a clear picture for us as to when tongues ceased and it’s prophetic fulfillment by the church before the nation of Israel.
If the judgment did take place in 70AD, then we NO longer need a warning sign,do we?
All the guidelines for tongues were to be kept until it CEASED as Paul said it would.
I haven’t met anyone who said they have this gift,who could prove to me in the bible that tongues did not cease as Paul said. They err and know not the scriptures.
If ,based on the facts you also now see WHEN tongues did actually cease ,in and of itself as Paul teaches, What conclusion do you draw dear Reader.All scripture concludes that tongues will cease after it’s purpose as a warning sign is finished.1 cor 13,8: „Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away”,

ONE MAIN ARGUEMENT FOR TONGUES TODAY IS .. ” that
tongues will cease when that that is perfect has come. I believe that
which is perfect is the coming of Son of the Living God. ”
UNFORTUNATELY The Bible doesn’t teach that we will have Tongues” in part” or that it will
cease” when that which is perfect is come”
Prophecies and Knowlege….YES! will be done away WHEN JESUS COMES.
„Fail” ,”vanish away”,”done away” are all the same word apply to Prophecies
and Knowlege….not to tongues.
I agree that when Jesus comes,those TWO will be completed.
Please check out the greek.I inserted the strongs number so you could see
for yourself.
Tongues is not included in the things that will be done away when Jesus
comes.
The scripture that you Quoted ,1 cor 13: 8 Charity never faileth: but
whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
whether there be tongues, they shall cease;
whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. {fail: Gr. vanish away}
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part…..(IT DOESN’T SAY WE
TONGUES IN PART!!)
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall
be done away. {done away: Gr. vanish away}
In the greek ,tongues were to cease ,in and of itself .CEASE is a completely
different word than „done away”, „fail”, and „vanish”…. which are the
same.
So scripture makes it clear that tongues will not depend on”when that which
is perfect is come” to make it cease.
This is real important to know that tongues doesn’t have to be here until
Jesus comes for it to have ceased.We just don’t have this teaching in the
Bible.
If tongues purpose was as a warning „sign” to Israel of a coming
Judgement,and that Judgement took place about 70 years after they murdered
Jesus.It is only right to assume that we cease warning them since the
judgement already took place.Hence Paul said „Tongues shall CEASE.”

Can you now see that that there is no scripture nor purpose for tongues today.
I can’t with a good conscience acknowlege this phenom. today which has no scripture sense at all .
I would wholeheartedly reject anyone who would claim this ‘POWER ‘based on the fact that tongues did cease.We should teach them the truth of the Holy Spirit according to Johns’s Gospel.
I believe that the spirit behind this is not the Holy Spirit.He would not cause people to ‘speak’ in ‘tongues’ after it has ceased.That would be contrary to scripture and its purpose in the first century.

SIGNS AND WONDERS TODAY?
Many Charismatic and Pentecostals hold tongues,signs and wonders above and more reliable than scripture.I would that this wasn’t true.
Most christians are pressured to get involved in this „tongues ” movement today ,but have no scripture for it’s continuation from 70AD to the present.
The signs and wonders and miracle gifts were temporary and used to give authentication of the Apostles as they laid the FOUNDATION of the church and always accompanied divine revelation.

Ephesians2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
SIGNS AND WONDERS WERE ONLY MEANT FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE CHURCH
2Co 12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

FALSE PROPHETS?
False prophets will preach Pentecost,signs,miracles, tongues,and the Holy Spirit but not Christ and Salvation by Grace through faith.Some say you can’t be born again if you haven’t spoke in tongues.Where is this in the Bible? Not everyone in the Bible spoke in tongues!

THE TRUE HOLY SPIRIT
The true Holy Spirit will not lead people away from Christ to himself and his own powers.Satan promises power to people.Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
God is not adding to the book since the Bible was completed in the first century.
Re 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

FORBID NOT TO SPEAK IN TONGUES YOU SAY?
But you said forbid not to speak in tongues”.Of course not.When did Paul write that.BEFORE THE FULFILLMENT OF THE THE DESTRUCTION IN 70 AD MENTIONED IN1 COR 14:21.Tongues was a sign to Israel ,and when Paul said „forbid not”,it was to continue while the Jews were still present.A jewish presense was a must.AFTER THE DESTRUCTION IN 70 AD,THE WARNING SIGN OF TONGUES WAS NOT NEEDED AND HAD TO CEASE!
Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2: And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3: And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4: And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5: And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6: Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7: And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8: And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9: Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10: Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11: Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12: And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?”
The jews knew it was a sign.Look what they said vs:12.

IT WAS A SIGN TO THE UNBELIEVING JEW!
Paul said it was a sign not to them that believe{this has to be christians}but to those who believe not.[the unbelieving Jew],not the pagan or gentile either.
It couldn’t have been a sign to the Pagan,prophesied by Isaiah 28 they never heard of Isaiah .
God directed tongues to be a sign to Israel ONLY. They[the pagan] would not know of’ what meaneth this.’Only the JEW knew it meant something!
22: Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

TODAY’S TONGUES ARE NOT SCRIPTURAL!
We need clear-cut scripture for our path today.There are no scripture for tongues today!
Other things suggest that today’s ‘tongues’ is false. The unsaved are doing it,Catholic Charismatics,Mormons,cults say they have it.I have personally met Gospel-rejecting women who go to their’church „and do it..What ever happened to 1Co 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
In studying this too,I have heard eyewitness accounts to people actualy hearing God being CURSED IN A FORIEGN LANGUAGE.
For the most part ,the pentecostal or charismatic,will do a form of ecstatic speech or a gurgling sound,to support this form of existetialism.
The list of all the unscriptural abuses keeps growing,but I don’t need to see an experiece to believe.I NEED SCRIPTURE to validate tongues today.
Can anyone show any scripture for its usage after 70AD?
If you can prove in scripture that it didn’t cease please email me today.
If you can’t prove that tongues are for today, then get out of the ‘church’
that you are going to and seek Christ ,and his Assembly.
If you are a seeker of the holy spirit more than Christ then you have already been deceived .Search the Word for Your answers .Trust the Word.
2Co 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
Prov:23:23: Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.’
Write me .I will get help you find a place to meet,where the true Holy Spirit glorifies not himself, but Christ!

Always yours in Christ’s honor’
gary pace sr
