“Prophesy in Tongues and Interpretation, Another Door That has opened widely”
Prophecy is one of the foundational gifts given to the church to help propagate the gospel and fulfill its mission on earth till the lord comes.
The ministry of prophets is indeed very spontaneous and a very large sphere indeed
The gift and outpouring of prophecy had began even before the commencement of the church and our constitution describes where the prophetic ministry started in this section :
76. “A few days after my return to Porto Novo from my sojourn in the bush through AGANGE where, you will recall, KUDIHO was raised from the dead by our Lord Jesus Christ through me, word came from my elder sister (ELIZABETH OSHOFFA married to GUTON) that her only child and son, EMMANUEL MAWUNYON GUTON (who later became our Evangelist in Ivory Coast) had died. I was in my praying attire and I sent word that he was not dead. On my arrival, I found the dead body and I sent everybody out of the room. The idol worshippers, who had earlier been trying to revive him, hurriedly left the room and, as I touched him, Jesus raised him and he immediately received the gift of the Holy Spirit and became the first prophet in Celestial Church of Christ.
It was noted that during the times of the pastor founder, prophecy in tongues wasn’t rampantly allowed, and prophecy in proper communication was more appreciated.
Those who spoke in tongues were told and prayed to convert to normal speaking to prophesy that everyone could hear
It is said that the prophecy in tongues and interpretation of tongues was something more identical to the cherubim church another family of white garment churches than the celestial church.
But in the present celestial church of today, the prophecy in tongues is particularly present in most churches and the gift of interpretation spreading like wildfire…
Many have said this is because of the cherubic elements that have mingled with the church but we are forgetting that prophecy and interpretation of tongues are gifts of the holy spirit that were subjected under restriction and control by the pastor founder.
The celestial church had the potential of a church that could speak in tongues and prophesy in tongues and also interpret what was spoken in tongues
Of a truth the celestial folks appreciate and acknowledge prophecy spoken in natural language than spiritual language and may even discredit prophecy in tongues.
Some parishes like the CCC calvary Parish one have a rare prophetic dissent that allows prophesy in tongues and interpretation full operation.
Testimonies have flown in of prophets whom haven’t stepped or visited the cherubim church but are gifted in tongues and interpretation
Fast forward to the millennium age that we are now compared to the 1947 to 1985 era, prophesy in tongues is rapidly growing and interpretation of tongues has really come to stay in the celestial church as young men and women are been used by the holy spirit but is lacking one thing : regulation and control
Panoramically, the gift of prophecy in tongues has come to stay and also interpretation in celestial fold, despite it not functional from the onset of the church.
The holy spirit operation in dimension is beginning to explore and unleash new territories that the church itself has left untouched..
