Speaking In Tongues
by Samantha Kennedy
In the name of ✠ the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
I will go to the altar of God, to God the joy of my youth.
For you O God, are my strength, the light and truth.
You have led me to your holy place, I praise you,
you who made heaven and earth.
I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts and in my words,
through my own fault, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do;
therefore, I ask the blessed Queen of Heaven, all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
O Lord, have mercy on us, cleanse us from our sins, and grant us your salvation, that we may enter with pure
minds into the holy of holies,
through Christ our Lord.
From the clouds above, our Saviour Ra-El has returned.
The heavens reveal the glory of God,
and the earth declares the work of his hands.
Glory be to ✠ the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Lord have mercy.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King,
O God almighty Father.
Lord Christ Yeshua, Lord God, Lamb of God, only begotten Son of the Father
who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.
For You alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Christ Ra-El, with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
Almighty and everlasting God increase in us your holy gifts,
that we may obtain your promise of the New Kingdom.
By your great command, Love God, Love Each Other,
through Christ Ra-El our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 22:14-20
And when it was time, Yeshua came and sat and the twelve Apostles with him. And he said to them, “I have
greatly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I say to you, from now on, I shall not
eat it until it shall be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” And he took a cup, and he gave thanks and he said,
“Take this and divide it among yourselves.
I say to you that I shall not drink from the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God shall come.” He took
bread and he gave thanks, he broke and he gave to them and he said, “This is my body, which shall be given
for the sake of your persons. You shall do this to commemorate me.” And thus also concerning the cup after
they had dined, he said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which shall be shed in your stead.”
Praise be the word of God.
Praise be the Name of God, all-Compassion, all-Mercy.
Praise to God, Lord of all worlds.
Compassionate, merciful Master of the Last Day.
You alone do we worship and ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path, the path of those in your grace.
Not the path of those in anger or wandering astray.
Alleluia, alleluia, Amen.
And God spoke these words, saying:
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honour thy father and thy mother.
Thou shalt not murder.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbour’s.
Readings from the Holy Gospel:
Deuteronomy 10:12-13 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul; to keep for thy good the commandments of the LORD, and His statutes, which I command thee this day?
Mathew 22:34-40 But the Pharisees, hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, came together.
And one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him:
“Teacher, which commandment in The Written Law is the greatest?”
Yeshua said to him, “You shall love THE LORD your God from all your heart and from all your soul and from all your power and from all your mind.
This is the great and the first commandment.
And the second which is like it, is ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commands depend all The Written Law and The Prophets.”
Praise be the word of God.
I believe in God the Father almighty, creator of the heavens and earth.
I believe in His Transcendent Son, our Lord Yeshua the Christ.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born to mankind.
He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead; on the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and was seated at the right hand of The Father.
He has come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Word of God, the returned Christ, Lord Ra-El.
In His great commandment: Love God, Love Each Other.
In the holy Ecumenical Order of Christ.
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
Unto the Ecumenical Order of Christ we beseech Thee, O Lord,
to grant us the gifts of your Holy Spirit through Christ our Lord Ra-El.
Holy Lord, God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
Therefore, let us pray in this way:
Our Father who is in Heaven, holy is your name, Your Kingdom come,
your will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us our necessary bread today.
And forgive us our debts, just as we also forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, for the eternity of eternities.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, strengthen us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
For Lord Ra-El is the Bread of Life, and the Light of the World,
For Lord Ra-El is the Gateway, our Lord is the Good Shepherd,
For Lord Ra-El is the Resurrection, the Vine and the Branch.
Speaking In Tongues
Speaking in tongues, the speaker will be speaking his normal language, but foreigners will hear the speaker
in their own native language (the key to language unlocked).
Modern-day preachers have twisted this gift into speaking nonsense that cannot be understood by the listener,
to fool the people and gather a following. I’m going to give an example (example) I have no idea what I’ve said
which proves a point.
To the Pentecostal faith, it is a common sight to see people flopping on the floor while making nonsensical
sounds or speaking gibberish. They do this with the belief that the Holy Spirit has touched them and caused
an experience so divine that no rational mortal mind could effectively process or communicate it. Is this
practice based on scripture? Is God not far more rational than any of us?
If you read Acts 2, you’ll see mockers called the apostles drunkards but that is contrary to what the majority
of these crowds expressed. They were not babbling; they were speaking eloquently in many languages at once.
The rest of the chapter details their clear words, but somehow modern people are lying to themselves and those
following them by claiming divine influence as they flop around like dying fish which, in spirit, they are.
Rarely has the human capacity for self-delusion been more thoroughly expressed by so many together. Illusion
is the reason these churchgoers behave as they do, and only they are the cause of their actions. God does not
give His people a message hoping that no one will hear it. He makes Himself frighteningly clear even if we are
slow to understand. The Most High does not send a prophet to slur His words like a drunk, nor anyone else.
If I had the gift of Tongues, I would speak God’s word in my own language and be heard in the language of those
around me. The apostles were speaking their own language but were heard fluently speaking the native language
of each member of the audience simultaneously. If the mockers heard babbling drunkards, then it reveals far
more about the mockers than the apostles. What is the Holy Spirit saying about those who knowingly babble and
writhe on the ground today?
Acts 2:4-11 (DRB) – “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost: and they began to speak with divers tongues,
according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. 5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men,
out of every nation under heaven. 6 And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were
confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue. 7 And they were all amazed,
and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these that speak Galilean? 8 And how have we heard, every man our
own tongue wherein we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea,
and Cappadocia, Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and
strangers of Rome, 11 Jews also, and proselytes, Cretes, and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own
tongues the wonderful works of God.”
So now you know about speaking in tongues.

The beginning of the Holy Gospel according to Saint John.
Glory be to You, O Lord.
In the beginning was The Word and That Word was with God and That Word was himself God. This One himself
was at the beginning with God. Everything was in his hand, and without him not even one thing existed of all
the things that existed. In him was The Life and The Life is The Light of men. And The Light is shining in
the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God; his name was John.
He came as a witness, to testify about The Light, that everyone by him would believe. He was not The Light
but was sent to bear witness of The Light. For That One was The Light of Truth, which enlightens every person
that comes into the world. He was in the world, and the world existed by his hand, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But those that received him, to them he gave authority
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in his Name, Those who had not been born of blood, nor
of the desire of the flesh, nor of the desire of man, but of God. [Genuflect] And The Word became flesh and
dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of The Only Begotten of The Father, full of grace and
Praise be the word of God.
May our Heavenly Father bless and protect you.
May He face you and shed His light and grace upon you.
May He grant you peace, joy, and everlasting love.
Go now, you are sent forth to share the Good News,
to Love God, and to Love Each Other.
