They Shall Speak With New Tongues. Is That For Real?

Posted in Christianity tagged , at 2:46 am by Lisa Ritchey


Just before Jesus’ ascension into Heaven He left some final instructions for His believers.  Among them were these:

17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.             Mark 16:17,18

Let me break this down for you:

  • 17.  And these signs shall follow them that believe: He did NOT say, “the apostles”, nor did He say, “those of you that are here with me now”, He said anyone, anytime that believes on the power of His Holy name. ANYONE;
  • in my name: with my power of attorney, just as if it were Him standing there doing it, but it is Him doing it through you
  • shall they cast out devils: yep!;
  • they shall speak with new tongues: Strong’s [Greek 2980], laleō,  is to speak.  Strong’s [Greek 1100] defines this use of tongues as glossa: a language [specifically not naturally acquired]. This means one given and not naturally learned.  When using the two words together one would use the word glossolalia.  But in this day and age?  1 Corinthians 13:10 tells us this will continue until Jesus returns, and as that hasn’t happened yet…
  • 18.  They shall take up serpents: Matthew 4:7 is written in red, and that means that Jesus said, “… It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt [test, or try] the L-rd, thy G-d.”  That means we are not to pick them up just to see what will happen, but if something happens like it did to Paul on the island gathering wood, we are covered!;
  • and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
  • they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover: There is absolutely NO possible way to misunderstand that. It means what it says! Plain and simple. If you realize that it is not you doing it, but Him doing it through you, and that He WILL do it, then He will. He has already taken 39 lashes, or 1,573 stripes for it. Oh so many Christians that die of disease die because of a lack of faith, or they and no one around them knows the Word. Jesus just said that should not happen!

When ABC News reports on a Christian story supporting this….  See the 8:21 minute ABC News story on YouTube here:

Speaking in Tongues: Medical Study proves Holy Spirit praying


[1] Luk 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luk 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
