(video) Ex-Witch: Praying in Tongues To Be FREE! — “Tongues is perfectly releasing the prayers that need to be prayed for those people”

As an ex-witch, Beth would be more aware about how much demons really do affect people. Here, she discusses the importance of praying in tongues so people can be set free!

I’ve been praying this way for others since the early ’80s, and have experienced THOUSANDS of deliverances!

Beth correctly says:

“Tongues is perfectly releasing the prayers that need to be prayed for those people.”

Any Christian can do this.

I have a category here on my spiritual blog called “Pray Perfectly in Tongues.” (10 posts per page, latest appear first)

WATCH: This Ex-Witch Explains the Benefits of Speaking in Tongues

Beth, of the blog The Other Side of Darkness, was a practicing witch until the cross transformed her life.

Now, the Spirit-filled believer is out to share the good news of how others can connect to God through the gifts of the Spirit, particularly praying in tongues as described in 1 Corinthians 14.

“Speaking in tongues can scare people,” Beth says in a recent video. “I mean, we don’t understand what is being said. God understands, and angels and demons understand.”

While our minds can’t comprehend, our spirits can. And though the gift can be a bit confusing, it has several benefits for both the speaker and those around them.

    You should read Acts2:1-12 and understand the true use of speaking in tongues ! With no interpreter you are speaking gibberish! You say you are speaking tongues in the spirit which you say is beyond your understanding, then I ask you “why do it?” You should also read 1Cor12&14 and discern what Paul is saying here. Paul, the greatest apostle to the Gentiles, says in 1Cor14:19 that he would rather speak five words with his understanding, that he may teach others, than ten thousand words in a tongue! If you can speak in another language that is known to man so that you can preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people, that would be the true gift of tongues!

    • You fail to see the difference between having a word in tongues for the assembly and one’s own personal prayer language through which we battle the forces of darkness by PRAYING PERFECTLY IN TONGUES!

      Why didn’t you mention verse 18 when you quote verse 19? Paul in 1 Cor. 14:18-19:

      “I thank my God, I speak with other languages more than you all. However in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might instruct others also, than ten thousand words in another language.”

    A ‘personal prayer language’ that sounds like gibberish in which you do not understand what you are saying? How do you know you are not being deceived by spirits of demons because you have no understanding of what you are speaking when ‘praying in tongues’? Paul writes in 2Cor11:14,”And no wonder, satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light”.
    Praise be to God that this young woman has become a believer in Jesus Christ! But why is it that young believers in Christ want to only concentrate on one or two verses to sensationalize ‘praying in tongues’ with a ‘personal prayer language’? As far as I know Paul is the only disciple who speaks with the tongues of men and angels (1Cor13:1). Paul , the greatest disciple to the Gentiles, was blessed by God with the ability to speak in different languages to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the nations and tribes of the different people in their own languages! No other writer in the bible speaks of having ‘the tongues of men and angels’. The book of Acts records the disciples being filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and preaching the Gospel to the people of different languages. This is the original intent of speaking in tongues, to edify the people, the unbelievers.
    The apostle Paul says in 1Cor13:1-3 that without love all he speaks, knows or does is nothing! There is so much more to living Christ than speaking in tongues, not understanding what you are saying!

    • Denny,

      You clearly haven’t studied this subject carefully to say such things. Praying perfectly in tongues is what the believers did then and what we should all do today — because we don’t often know what to pray for, but the Holy Spirit does.

      I believe part of the reason for the gift is that if we understood the spiritual demonic world enough to know what to pray we’d freak out. This is a way to deal with demons without having to know things we should not.

      Everyone in the Corinthian church spoke in tongues, which is why Paul directed them not to in front of visitors:

      “If therefore the whole assembly is assembled together and all speak with other languages…” (1 Cor. 14:23)

      Jesus initiated this gift:

      These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages….” (Mark 16:17)

      This article lays much of it out, and shows many instances of believers praying in tongues.

      Jim Feeney: Why Speak in Tongues? (Is Speaking in Tongues of God? Is It for Today?)

      It was Jesus Himself who initiated the subject of speaking in tongues in the New Testament. He said that it would be a “sign” that would accompany believers as they went into all the world and preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


      Here [Acts 19:1-6] is a third clear instance in the book of Acts — along with Acts 2 and Acts 10 just studied above — where believers received the baptism with the Spirit and spoke in tongues.


      “Speaking in tongues”! Just utter that phrase among Christians, and you elicit a wide variety of reactions, sometimes very strong reactions. Bible studies by the thousands have been written for it … and against it. Many ask a legitimate question: “Is speaking in tongues for today?”.

      Historically, speaking in a tongue (glossolalia) by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit was common among Christians in the first-century Church, then seemed to fade out gradually in succeeding centuries. In the very early twentieth century there came a resurgence of this biblical practice, most notably in Topeka, Kansas, and in revival meetings on Azusa Street in Los Angeles.

      From those and other places of spiritual renewal came many of today’s leading Pentecostal denominations. Subsequent movements in which speaking in tongues was a prominent feature included the Latter Rain revival, the mid-20th-century healing ministries, the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship, and the Charismatic Renewal. In this latter movement especially, the biblical doctrine of the baptism with the Holy Spirit, with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues, spread broadly into both the Roman Catholic Church and many Protestant denominations.

      By the early 21st century, speaking in tongues (the theological term is glossolalia) — that is, languages unknown to the speaker, given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit — had become broadly if not universally accepted within worldwide Christianity. Many portions of the worldwide Church today have once again come to embrace one of the historical ancient landmarks of the Church that Jesus created.

      But historical and anecdotal testimonies, as interesting as they may be, are still secondary. The Bible must be the source of primary importance in establishing the present-day validity of speaking in tongues. So to that treasure trove, the Bible, we will now turn to answer the question: “Why should we speak in tongues?”

      Mark 16:15-17 He [Jesus] said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues.

      The verses above are an excerpt of Mark’s account of Jesus’ Great Commission. It was Jesus Himself who initiated the subject of speaking in tongues in the New Testament. He said that it would be a “sign” that would accompany believers as they went into all the world and preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


      In Acts 1 and 2 we saw the first group in Jerusalem being “baptized with…filled with the Holy Spirit.” Peter certified that these Gentiles in Acts 10 had received the identical experience — “They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.” So Acts 2, the first New Testament day of Pentecost, was not a one-time occurrence. To the contrary, Peter asserts that these Gentiles had received the identical gift of the Holy Spirit.

      Peter recounts this again in Acts 11:15-17“As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ So if God gave them the same gift as he gave us, who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could oppose God?” (underlinings mine) The Gentiles in Acts 10 received the “same gift,” the same baptism with the Holy Spirit, that the 120 had received in Jerusalem in Acts. And in both instances they manifested the identical evidence — they immediately spoke in tongues.

      And notice once more (vss. 10:47-48) that Peter made a clear distinction between water baptism and their having received the Holy Spirit.

      Acts 19:1-6 While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?” “John’s baptism,” they replied. Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

      Here is a third clear instance in the book of Acts — along with Acts 2 and Acts 10 just studied above — where believers received the baptism with the Spirit and spoke in tongues. So we have a consistent bible pattern — believers who are baptized with/filled with the Holy Spirit will immediately speak in tongues.

    Acts2:4-11 –“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
    And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
    And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.
    Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, ” Look, are not all these Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?”

    Luke in vss 9-11 lists 16 different languages that were represented by these devout men from every nation under heaven.

    These different languages were the tongues the Holy Spirit filled the disciples with. Vs 11 continues – “We hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God”.

    You mention that Peter recounts in Acts11:15-17 the Gentiles receiving the same as was received in Acts2:4 and you are correct. The Gentiles in Acts 11 were able to speak in different languages known to man as given to them by the Holy Spirit.

    I still stand by my statement that no other writer or disciple, besides Paul, speaks with the tongues of men AND of angels.

    • Denny,

      First, let’s talk about what is usually the best way to interpret scripture. It’s usually best to find out what the Bible says is true, whether it lines up with our personal experiences or not. That way, we’re more open to what the Bible really says, instead of trying to get it to say what we want it to say.

      I know Christians whom I believe are truly born-again, but they say they can’t speak in tongues because they tried but “didn’t get it.” I believe that’s mostly because they didn’t believe it could be that easy to do, and doubted, discounted and discontinued what words they did speak. Some are scared to speak any. They try to intellectualize it too much.

      I did that the first time. I got a flowing language, but after speaking a few paragraphs I chickened out, and didn’t try again until I moved to Alaska, about 5 years later.

      Paul said “the mind is unfruitful.” Actually, the mind isn’t involved at all, except in willing to do it. An elder, Harold House told me the words will just be in our mouths, and just speak whatever you get. And that’s what helped me get over my confusion about how I thought the gift was supposed to work.

      It’s really so simple to do. Sometimes we need to be like little children and trust our heavenly Father completely. It’s not a virtue to rationalize away a gift God wants to give us. Tongues are for now, while we’re on earth. Now is when we need the gift. Tongues will cease when we see Jesus face to Face (1 Cor. 13).

      Pride can get in the way. God won’t make us speak in tongues, but He’ll give us the words when we’re willing to submit to him and pray perfectly in tongues.

      Resisting the gift of tongues can be rebellion.

      When I first became a Christian in the ’70s, I had a strong idea that the Christian walk would be difficult and I knew I needed what God wanted to give me regarding tongues to be able to make it.

      I’ve since prayed in tongues many thousands of hours, in many different languages, some of which sound like earthly languages, but I’ve never verified that clinically. That happened again a few days ago. Mostly, though, I don’t think the languages I get are earthly languages. I get clear results, which is what mostly matters to me, which I believe can be proven in a clinical, scientific setting. Praying in tongues often absolutely sets people free from demons. I’ve felt this thousands of times — daily, actually.

      This is probably why Paul prayed in tongues more than anyone else, because he got James-3 cursed more than anyone else — being such a threat to the Devil’s kingdom.

      Some think God will take over our mouths so we’ll actually lose control, and that’s the only way to speak in tongues. I’ve only seen one person do this one time in my entire life, during the holiness Vineyard revival in about 1990, while attending seminary. A fellow student got touched by God, big-time! After that, he stopped doing it for many years until I saw him again when revisiting seminary, and we found each other in the library, and ended up talking in English and singing and speaking in tongues together in a vacant class room until about 6am the next day.

      He missed out because he was under the mistaken notion that tongues would always happen that way for him: God completely taking over his mouth, because that’s how it first happened for him. But that probably just happened that way because the “COMFORTER” filled him with such a great anointing to greatly bless him. He had been hurt a lot, and was even hurt badly while doing his internship at a church, which we spoke of that night/morning.

      He was so excited to be able to speak in tongues! We’ve lost touch. I hope he’s doing well.

      One of my points here is that there is only one gift. Whether God gives us a language that someone else can understand or not it’s still the same gift.

      There is only one time in the New Testament that I know of in which it says they spoke in languages that people understood: Acts 2. Nowhere else does it say that. But I’ve heard of it happening since, in modern day. And as I said, I’ve probably spoken in known languages myself, but wasn’t around anyone who could verify that, or they didn’t say.

      Besides the texts in my previous comment about how they all spoke in tongues, 1 Cor. 14 says a lot about the gift; even though, it’s written as a directive to the Corinthian church to no longer speak in tongues in meeting where visitors are present, so they won’t think they are “crazy.”

      I’ve highlighted key passages and add comments in brackets. This is the WEB version, which I mostly use. It’s based on the reliable Textus Receptus text, which the KJV is also based on.

      Notice that when Paul talks about praying in unknown tongues, he’s usually referring to someone other than himself doing it.

      Follow after love, and earnestly desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For he who speaks in another language speaks not to men, but to God; for no one understands; but in the Spirit he speaks mysteries. [private prayer language] But he who prophesies speaks to men for their edification, exhortation, and consolation. He who speaks in another language edifies himself [private prayer language], but he who prophesies edifies the assembly. Now I desire to have you all speak with other languages [private prayer language], but rather that you would prophesy [in the church]. For he is greater who prophesies than he who speaks with other languages, unless he interprets [because the language is unknown], that the assembly may be built up.

      But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking with other languages[private prayer language], what would I profit you, unless I speak to you either by way of revelation, or of knowledge, or of prophesying, or of teaching? Even things without life, giving a voice, whether pipe or harp, if they didn’t give a distinction in the sounds, how would it be known what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet gave an uncertain sound, who would prepare himself for war? So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air.[private prayer language] 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of sounds in the world, and none of them is without meaning. 11 If then I don’t know the meaning of the sound, I would be to him who speaks a foreigner, and he who speaks would be a foreigner to me. 12 So also you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, seek that you may abound to the building up of the assembly. 13 Therefore let him who speaks in another language pray that he may interpret [because it’s a language they don’t understand, and this is a message for the group, not personal prayer language]. 14 For if I pray in another language, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.

      15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also. I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.16 Otherwise if you bless with the spirit, how will he who fills the place of the unlearned say the “Amen” at your giving of thanks, seeing he doesn’t know what you say [private prayer language]? 17 For you most certainly give thanks well, but the other person is not built up. 18 I thank my God, I speak with other languages more than you all. [they do too] 19 However in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might instruct others also, than ten thousand words in another language.

      20 Brothers, don’t be children in thoughts, yet in malice be babies, but in thoughts be mature. 21 In the law it is written, “By men of strange languages and by the lips of strangers I will speak to this people. Not even thus will they hear me, says the Lord.” 22 Therefore other languages are for a sign, not to those who believe, but to the unbelieving; but prophesying is for a sign, not to the unbelieving, but to those who believe. 23 If therefore the whole assembly is assembled together and all speak with other languages [private prayer language], and unlearned or unbelieving people come in, won’t they say that you are crazy?[private prayer languages can’t be usually understood]24 But if all prophesy, and someone unbelieving or unlearned comes in, he is reproved by all, and he is judged by all. 25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed. So he will fall down on his face and worship God, declaring that God is among you indeed.

      26 What is it then, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has another language, has an interpretation. Let all things be done to build each other up. 27 If any man speaks in another language [the 1 Cor. 12 gift of tongues for group edification], let it be two, or at the most three, and in turn; and let one interpret. 28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the assembly, and let him speak to himself, and to God. 29 Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the others discern. 30 But if a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first keep silent. 31 For you all can prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted. 32 The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets [this text also indicates that people are in control of their gifts, including tongues. They don’t normally automatically happen. We pray in tongues by will, not involuntarily], 33 for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace.

      There are numerous texts that say that many prayed in tongues other than Paul. And only the Acts 2 passage says that they prayed in languages that people understood — probably being that this was the Holy Spirit’s great debute. The disciples also appeared drunken during that time, being so incredibly filled with the Holy Spirit!

      Does that make sense? Are you tracking with me?

    Jeff, all I am saying is that Paul wrote this letter to the church at Corinth, right? And the people of Corinth most likely spoke the same language. And if someone new to the church in Corinth came in to listen to the Gospel of Jesus and they spoke the language of Corinth and heard several different languages of men being spoken, Paul says they won’t understand. Now if a person came into the church to listen to the Gospel and was from a different nation and different language than the Corinthians and heard the word being spoken in his language then the church would be edifying the Gospel to him. The exact same thing that happened at Pentecost Acts2.

    I see what you are saying, but I don’t agree with your interjection of [private prayer language] each time Paul says ‘ another language ‘ or
    ‘other languages’. I am not trying to be mean to you but you are making this more confusing and as Paul wrote ‘ For God is not the author of confusion but of peace’. The gift of tongues is a gift that God gives some people through the Holy Spirit to preach the Gospel of Jesus to people of different languages. Simple to understand, not confusing!

    • Denny,

      I gave this plenty of time (over three weeks) to think and pray about what I should say and to make sure this is what I wanted to say.

      If Acts 2 was happening in 1 Cor. 14 then the people would understand because in Acts 2 they were at least in part speaking in the languages of those listening.

      I don’t believe you do see what I’m saying, and I don’t think you want to see what the Bible really says.

      You’re trying to justify yourself not speaking in tongues and the telling others they don’t have to also by applying part of what happened during the special and very powerful first occurrence of tongues speaking to all of the other instances and statements about tongues.

      You’re looking at everything else through Acts-2 glasses instead of letting the texts speak for themselves.

      You’re willfully ignorant of everything that disproves your theory, and are teaching a false doctrine about tongues.

      You also have no experience of what it’s like to speak in tongues personally, which further handicaps your interpretation. And you refuse to accept advice from those who do speak in tongues.

      What I and Jim Feeney said above is true about these texts. There is no other way to logically understand what all of these texts mean, not just the few you address.

      Publicly trying to get people to not think they should speak in tongues is probably a lot more serious than you think.

      Those who pray in tongues deal with evil spirits in a way that those who do not cannot. I know this from personal experience which you probably won’t accept, but I know much of what the prayer language of tongues does by praying many thousands of hours this way for many decades. I believe the effects could be proven in clinical tests.

      When people discount the value of praying perfectly in tongues for our personal prayer language they rob people from being able to pray perfectly for things they don’t understand and what God doesn’t want us to understand. If we understood what was going on in the spirit world most would freak, because most “Christians” have demons directly affecting them — even giving them false doctrinal thoughts: “doctrines of demons.”

      Can a Christian Have a Demon? Absolutely! Most Have Many!

      The spirit world is very real, and God gave us this very important gift to help us survive it. Those who say we don’t have to speak in tongues may be in big trouble with God, and this may even be a salvation factor. It’s likely that you teach once-saved-always-saved too, which is one of the fables predicted would satisfy the “itching ears” of the last days.

      “For The TIME WILL COME when THEY WILL NOT LISTEN to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves TEACHERS AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS; and will TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, and turn aside to *FABLES*” (2 Tim. 4:3-4)

      “Few should consider themselves teachers because they’ll receive the stricter judgment.” You should think about this. There are no judgments in heaven. The following is a testimony from: (video testimony) Christians Who Ended up in HELL …

      I even saw pastors, evangelists, believers and missionaries.   They were all there for different reasons.   I saw one pastor who never believed in the power of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues, healings or the baptism of the Holy Ghost.   (Mark 3:29He was begging for mercy, and just one more chance tell the world that speaking in tongues is real, that that the Holy Ghost is real, and that there is real freedom in the gospel.   But it was too late for him; he could never get out, even though he was a pastor.   His chance to repent was only possible on Earth.

      “Woe to you who cause the little ones to stumble.”

      When I first became a Christian, I knew it would be tough, and that I needed all the help I could get — which is why I sought the gift of tongues until I understood it enough to do it.

      Everyone can and should speak in tongues, but in the church, it should only be done if it’s a word for the group and if there is an interpreter.

      I hope you reassess your Bible interpretation style and are more open to the truth. Instead of trying to crowbar the Bible into teaching what you want it to teach.

      We must abide in Christ to go to heaven:

      Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *NO CONDEMNATION* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

      Praying perfectly in tongues is one of the most important ways to be free.

      No one in the New Testament taught what you are teaching here. Knowing that, you should tremble and repent — and come clean before it’s too late.

      We must abide in Christ, and God gave us His Holy Spirit to “lead us into all truth” and give us the grace to help us overcome.

      To deprive people of this grace is very serious!

      You should prayerfully reassess.


  5. Phil

    Satan is often called “God’s ape”, because he can imitate most things God can do. He will let 99% of something look good, but plant a lie or who booster in a philosophy. Wanting the gifts and not disparaging them is Biblical, but not wanting them to affirm one’s own spiritual closeness to God or to convince others of it, which could be subconscious, but there. It has to be for the good of the CHURCH and people’s faith and error will undermine it. Interpreted messages should be tested for truth, as as well . Only one ministerial priesthood was started by Christ in the Bible. That one has the authority. It has a line of bishops in Peter’s office-the Catholic Church.
