The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead. Acts 17:30-31

Psalms 139:7-8 KJV
As you speak in tongues in prophetic utterance, you can trust the Holy Spirit to bring the message to your understanding. If you thought you were blessed speaking in tongues, wait until you receive the interpretation. The experience will bring you such unspeakable joy!
There’s a need to tear down every idol when you STAND before the throne of God and worship the only true Kind – the Lord Jesus Christ. Shalom – peace to you.
