A New Light Dawns!


QUESTION: Did Jesus Christ speak in Charismatic Unknown Tongues according to the Records in the 4 Gospels and in the Book of Acts?



ANSWER: While it is impossible to rule out the possibility, and say that Jesus NEVER spoke in "Unknown Tongues", one must admit that in the surviving Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) and in Acts -- It was not Jesus' custom to worship this way!  His was a more quiet style.


QUESTION 2: If he did not do so himself, did Jesus Christ have close friends and associates who were indeed


and who danced and sang and spoke in unknown tongues while worshipping God?


ANSWER: The answer to this second question is a definite and hearty YES!  His three closest friends or intimate associates were Lazarus of Bethany, his "sister" Mary (also known as Mary Magdalene, and John (the "Beloved Disciple" -- ALL THREE known to be Charismatics!

      John 11:1 "Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary, and Martha (all three of these people were Charismatics, also called "Gnostics" a little later in Church History).

   2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Whatever else you dare make of this statement, you must admit that this Mary and Jesus were intimate friends, and that Jesus allowed this woman to touch and caress him!

    3 "Therefore his sisters sent unto him saying, Lord, behold he who thou lovest (Lazarus) is sick."

(by the end of this chapter, Lazarus died, was in a tomb 4 days, and then Jesus raised him from the dead!)

           Later, at the Last Supper --

   John 13:21 "When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me."

     22 "Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake."

     23 "Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved."

    24 "Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake."

     25 "He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?"

     26 "Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop (bread dipped in wine), when I have dipped it.  And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas (also a Charismatic or Gnostic) Iscariot, the son of Simon."

The "Simon" who was the "Father" of Judas Iscariot was quite likely the same "Simon" we'll be discussing a little later --

Simon Magus!
