What Does the Bible Say About Speaking in Tongues?

Many people believe in speaking in tongues; but what does the Bible say about it. Interesting enough, speaking in tongues is a Biblical experience and should be expected by believers. The Jewish followers of Jesus believed speaking in tongues was the sign that someone had received the Holy Ghost (Acts 10:44-48).This is important because receiving the Holy Ghost is part of being born again. This would make speaking in tongues a positive thing. The first biblical account of people speaking in tongues was in Acts chapter 2. All the people who received the Holy Ghost spoke in tongues (Acts 2:1-4). This is not the only biblical experience of individuals speaking in tongues when they received the Holy Ghost. Paul once found people who had never heard of the Holy Ghost. He explained the importance of receiving it, and prayed for them to receive it. According to the Bible, when they received it they began to speak in tongues (Acts 19:2-6). We should not be scared of the supernatural power of God. Speaking in tongues is ordained of God as the evidence that someone has received the Holy Ghost.
