Speaking In Tongues

Patriarch Moses documents than before and after the flood, spoke the same language and the same words were used. Moses also documents that the descendants of the survivors to the flood, decided to protect humanity from a next and supposed cataclysm aquatic universal, reason by which said: Let’s make bricks and bake them to fire and build a city and a tower whose top reaches the sky. So they built a very high tower as a human environment of auto salvation, despite the divine promise that the land would not be destroyed with water, and despite the rainbow of that promise. The book of Genesis also recounts that one day Jehova God came down to see the city and the tower that the men were lifting, and that God said: Behold, all human beings are one people and speak the same language, being this tower and this city the beginning of their companies. Nothing will prevent them that they carried out everything you intend to. Let us go as well, down and there same confuse their language so that no is understand each other. So Jehovah scattered them from there over all the face of the Earth and ceased in the construction of the city.

That is why it was called Babel, because there Jehovah confused the language of all inhabitants (cf. Genesis 11: 1-9). So today the seven billion inhabitants that populate the planet Earth speak about seven thousand different languages (languages). God’s Word also documents that two and a half millennia after the flood, 120 believers were gathered in Jerusalem during the feast of the Pentecost, and that these believers were gathered together to pray and meditate on Jesus Christ as the Ark of salvation and as the arc iris on that promise. This group of believers were in the upper room, which was the same place where fifty days behind Jesus and his disciples had gathered to celebrate the feast of the Passover.
