1 Corinthians 14:4-6 NASB
One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church. 5Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying. 6But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you unless I speak to you either by way of revelation or of knowledge or of prophecy or of teaching?…
This subject of having a private language to speak with God, I was not planning on talking about it.
But since I am covering many expects of how to deal with life issues and how to have victory over all that concerns you, I might as well speak on this subject.
To all who are going to read this and who never really understood what a private language is, that each person has, which was hard coded in them before they came to earth, is a language given by Heaven to say things only Heaven and some who can interpret will know the meaning.
They have been many teachers who have tried to explain it in a more simple way, so here is my take on this subject in a contemporary way.
As stated in the scripture above you can see what Paul the writer is saying about speaking tongues.
Speaking in tongues is good and it has great benefits to us, but it will have little use to us unless we can prophecy.
In this case Prophesying is more important and tongues.
Paul says; he wishes that all spoke in tongues, so that says it’s not a requirement to go to Heaven and many won’t speak in tongues.
You are in Heaven because you have received Jesus as Lord and Savior.
This is a part of God’s blessings and benefits for being born again, to be equipment with a power unknown to the world and satan.
As we know we all can speak in tongues by the power of the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us, but few try it for the fear or strange feeling to the human mind.
Many will have divisions or levels of this power.
1 Corinthians 12:28 ESV
And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.
This is spiritual
A human is only an amplifier.
I give to you one more weapon to use, where even your enemies cannot stop you.
“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Each person has a private language within them, its noises, sounds, or mumblings from within that you can speak with, but you will understand the nature of what you are saying.
A private language is just a private prayer between you and God.
The sound may be weird to others or even to your human mind, but your spiritual mind and God will know what you are praying about.
Most importantly your enemies will not know what you are saying.
You know some things are just best kept secret.
For if your enemies knew what was on your mind and what concerns you all the times, he will be able to set in motion some stumbling blocks.
Even though he cannot stop you, he will place doubt in your mind and with those who are around you. He can use them to help cast doubt in your mind.
These stumbling blocks will slow you down, because you will spend too much time moving them out of your way or spend too much time thinking about them.
And times when you have concerns, just that private language in the spirit within you can speak with the spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 14:2 NIV
For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.
Let’s say you had a situation that really concerned you and in your heart you just didn’t have the words to say, you can say them with your private language.
You can use this private language at any time to secure your thoughts and afterwards know that only God herd it and your enemies cannot stop your prayers by planting doubt and worry in your mind.
So open up and speak your private language that no one will try to capture.
You can share what’s said to others, but you will have to let them know what you are saying.
1 Corinthians 14:27 ESV
If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret.
Speak freely and often in private to your Father what’s on your heart and mind.
When speaking to a group or others who may not know what you are saying, then be sure to prophesy in your earthly language so they can be lifted up.
1 Corinthians 14:18 NIV
I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.
What Paul is saying here is that he is able to prophesy, give knowledge and wisdom to all those who hear him.
He is able to increase you in the knowledge of Heaven where many are not able to.
Where you may lack or cannot hear from God, he can prophesy to you through his Private language and interpretation.
It’s your weapon and secret to answered prayers.
