Yes, and it sounds like you want to impress more than you want to see God move. Jesus said some wouldnít be convinced even if someone rose from the dead. But what did He know, right?

the 120 were not speaking Hebrew and Aramaic, they were speaking in unknown tongues.

Your cover is blown friend. You are one of two things.
1. a Pentecostal playing games
2. your being deceptive and want to debate

which is it?

Re: I would like to speak with new tongues

It seems this character (for the lack of a better term) isn't Apostolic, or even Pentecostal for that matter, and that he's wanted to debate and disprove the Truth, and therefore "out" us as wrong.

I honestly thought he was wanting to know about tongues, and our experiences with the Spirit because he was new in the Apostolic way, but evidently I was wrong.

I like many other Christians would be overwhelmingly delighted and joyful to see God move. And I don't believe that the manifest power of God can be kept secret.

Do you have a Scripture to back that up?

Perhaps you should stop seeking the signs and start seeking Him. You might just hear something if you are truly searching.

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. -- 1 Kings 19:11-12 (KJV)

Have yourself a wonderful day, Zog.

Deep down I know you are right, but I just can't stop myself from responding. As long as it is civil, I don't suppose it can hurt.

God has spoken to me in dreams and visions but I want God to do more.

Thatís fine, but last time I checked, you donít get to tell God what to do. James says that you have not because you ask not and that you ask and have not because you ask amiss. Again, pray for wisdom. Be sure those dreams and visions werenít hallucinations.

God hasnít spoke to you in any dream or vision. You donít even have the HG so go seek that and then we can talk more spiritual things.
