    Speaking in tongues

    Thank you for being my first fan. I noticed that you are pretty well versed with the bible original.I wish to know your interpretation to 1 Cor 13:8 especially the sentence 'where there are tongues, they will be stilled;

    I realize you asked this question of Deborah Sexton, but I will give you my two mites ~ you really have to continue reading from verse 8 to verse 12, which tells you WHEN tongues will cease.  "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known."  This is speaking about the return of Christ.

    Furthermore, continue on in Chapter 14, which tells us to "Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy."  It goes on to say how tongues are profitable and not profitable, depending on their use.  They are used to edify oneself in private prayer (v. 4), and the body when interpreted (v. 5).  Interpretation is also a gift (1 Cor 12:10; 14:13).  So, as you can see, the Chapter before and after 13 show the context of the verse many use to say tongues have already ceased.  That is not true.  And to call the Holy Spirit (His gifts) of the Devil (unclean) is to borderline on the unforgivable sin (Mark 3:29-30).

    The word glossa appears in the Greek New Testament not less than fifty times. It is used to refer to the physical organ of the tongue as in James 3:5; once in reference to the flames of fire shaped like tongues (Acts 2:3); at least once in a metaphorical sense when referring to speech as in the statement, “my tongue (speech) was glad (joyous)” (Acts 2:26). As far as I understand the remaining usages of the word it always means a language.

    Judah is right, tongues will end when prayer and everything else is no longer needed. The world has become worse and we need the Spirit to pray through us more than ever.
    Tongues are of God and very much needed

    Basically its speaking of when we in the place of Heaven after we depart from our body and are in the immediate Presence of God, tongues, words of knowledge, prophecy, etc. will not be needed because we are with God and don't need to speak in supernatural languages or prophesy because God is right in front of us. it's like you don't need a cell phone or computer or mail to communicate with someone when you meet them face to face (1Cor. 13) because you already with them and can speak directly with them face to face.
