I attended the same church for more than 10 years, and was very familiar with everyone. As we approached the end of the Sunday evening service, everything had a sort of heaviness.
There were two people that started speaking in tongues at the same time. A moment later they both started to give two different interpretations. I was a bit upset.
I prayed, "Father, you said the Holy Spirit is not the author of confusion. Help me believe, in spite of this confusion."
A moment later a man in the back of the church started speaking in tongues (unknown language). I didn't recognize the voice, but I understood everything he said while he was saying it.
One of the most powerful experiences I've ever had. I was no person of importance and thought I would be judged for giving an interpretation that was a bit HARD.
The minister unknowingly gave the interpretation in song, nearly word for word of what I heard.
I believe God gave me what I needed to believe, but I failed to put it in to action. I wonder how he sees me now.
Do you believe in speaking in tongues and interpretation? My Grandfather was a minister, and he admitted he never had the gift of interpretation.
