The Mystery Of Tongues

By Sunday Joseph Adenuga

One day as I was meditating on the word of God, I heard a voice spoke to my heart these words, “I will teach you about the mystery of tongues”. I turned around to see the one who had spoken, seeing no one, I knew the Holy Spirit wanted to teach me something. As I thought about those words, I turned to
Gen 11:1-9
1. And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech...

Language or tongue is a unifying factor on earth. People of the same tongue naturally gravitate to one another, there is a natural affinity or bond between people of the same tongue. In 1988, I participated in the National Youth Service, a Yoruba man, I was called to serve in the Northern part of Nigeria which consist predominantly the Hausa's. Getting to Sokoto, all Yoruba men I saw became automatic friend and close confidants. You will be surprised how we were bounded together just because we were of the same tongue. There were no distinctions, you are Ijebu or Ijesha, I am Ondo – no, we saw ourselves as one; why was it like that? Because we were in the foreign land, the best thing to do is to unite.
All Christians are citizens of heaven, we are here (on earth) as foreigners, as ambassadors of heaven, we must speak our language (faith). Faith is our language, when we speak that language, we understand each other and communicate with home station and we receive help anytime we need it.
The people united together to build the tower of Babel because they are all of one language. The unity and power that comes from it can surmount any problem on earth. They of the then world were so powerful that God said in

Genesis 11:6
6. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one and they have all one language and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be refrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

The unity that comes from language and tongue results in a very powerful influence that even God acknowledged that “nothing will be restrained from them.
The only solution was for God to bring confusion among them by making them not to speak the same language and tongues again. If that was done, God would now be able to stop them from achieving their purpose.
Who you hear speak to your life goes a long way to affect you. Man is a product of WORDS and so is affected by words (for good or bad).
In I Corinthians 13:1

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, …

This implies that there are tongues of men (which comprise of different languages) and of course, there are tongues of angels (which we speak anytime we speak in tongues or in divers kinds of tongues).
When you speak in tongues, you are speaking the tongue of angels, you are working in harmony with God’s spirit, you are becoming united, in agreement with the forces of God. When you are constantly doing this, you are generating such powers that make for success in any endeavor in life. When you agree with God in language (faith) and tongues (speaking in the spirit), you are positioned for success unlimited. Let’s see I Corinthians 14:2

For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh no unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; how be it in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

The mystery of tongues make for success or failure in this world. Speak the tongues of angel and they will help you fix most problems that are seen and unseen they will help you bring your file to God’s table and ensure they help you to have a speedy execution of all your request. They (angels) will naturally gravitate towards you, when you form the habit of speaking in the spirit (or speak in tongues). Like you read earlier, every man will naturally fall in love with his towns man in a foreign country. We are citizens of heaven, we are seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenly places (Ephesians. 2:6), we are in a foreign land, we need to speak our language and tongue to get our people and government to help us succeed in all things. Dear reader, team up with God and His Angels and you will be able to build your success unhindered by any power or force in the universe. Let’s see I Corinthian 14:4

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself …

To edify means to build up, when you speak in tongue, you build up yourself, your business or ministry, your home, your children, your health etc.
See also I Corinthians 14:14,15. If you want to hear God’s voice or opinion on any matter learn to speak in tongues often in your prayers (Jude 20), this makes your spirit open and sensitive to God to hear his direction for you life.
We are ambassadors of heaven here on earth; we are not of this world even though we live in this world; we are citizens of heaven. Speaking our language (faith) and tongues (praying in tongues) will attract the forces from our home country (heaven) to come to our aids each time we need support. We always need constant support from home if we must make it to success land and shame the devil in this world. The mystery of tongues is the secret of power. The heavens love and are gravitated towards her citizens who do not forget their home language and tongues. May the Lord give you a good understanding of these things in Jesus name.
