Interpretation of Tongues



January 28, 2022


The Bible plainly tells us that tongues with interpretation is equal to prophecy:


1 Cor. 14:5

5 “Greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret . . .”


Excerpt from "The Holy Spirit and His Gifts Study Course" by Kenneth E. Hagin:


“Prophecy is supernatural utterance in a known tongue.


"Divers kinds of tongues is supernatural utterance in an unknown tongue.


“The interpretation of tongues is the supernatural showing forth by the Spirit the meaning of an utterance in other tongues. Also, it is not translation of tongues; it is the interpretation of tongues.


"The gift of interpretation of tongues is the least gift of all of the gifts of the Spirit because it depends upon another gift — divers kinds of tongues — in order to operate. It does not operate unless tongues have been in operation.


"The purpose of the gift of interpretation of tongues is to render the gift of tongues understandable to the hearers so that the whole church congregation, as well as the one who gave the utterance in an unknown tongue, may know what has been said and may be edified thereby. Paul said, “. . . greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, THAT THE CHURCH MAY RECEIVE EDIFYING” (1 Cor. 14:5).”


Father, we stand here today needing to see how this gift works so that the Church can be edified and built up, not torn down. Reveal to us Your plan for us, Your Church. In Jesus's name, Amen


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet  to come.
