The gift of tongues is a powerful and important gift of the Holy Spirit. What if there is more to this gift than we have ever imagined?
In Jacob’s Ladder and the Gift of Glossary, author Jimmy Weiss provides an exposition of the spiritual gift of tongues and what this gift really means in the lives of believers.
After dedicating thousands of hours to attempting to provide understanding about the Christian faith over the last five years, Weiss’s quest to answer hard questions concerning Christian doctrines resulted in a focused study of the gift of tongues. While examining the Greek version of 1 Corinthians, the true nature of the gift of tongues became suddenly very clear. Through this revelatory work, Weiss exposes the purpose of this God-given gift by explaining the gift of tongues as the gift of glossary, or the gift of hard words, and how this communication brings us closer to God, similar to Jacob’s ladder in the book of Genesis.
With Weiss’s approach to the gift of glossary, we discover that the ability to speak in tongues is the spiritual endowment of competence with obscure, difficult-to-understand words. Just as a glossary is a portion of a book that explains terms once previously unknown, the gift of glossary is the method the Holy Spirit uses to illuminate words of a spiritual origin to believers.
Through this gift, God has provided His children with the amazing ability to spiritually express themselves using words that are incomprehensible to the earthly mind. Embrace the profound potential held within the gift of glossary as you take your discernment of tongues to a deeper level and connect with God in powerful ways.
Jimmy Weiss turned to Christ as an alternative to suicide in 2004, at the age of twenty. Although he entered into belief without understanding, he was blessed with an unshakable faith in the idea that kept him from self destruction. After a marvelous early period of belief, the Lord launched Jimmy into a life of rigorous study of the Bible and its ideas. Jimmy has a special love for C.S. Lewis, and has also studied Thomas Aquinas, with the help of contemporary author, Dr. Edward Feser. Along the way, Jimmy has been blessed with a wife and two children.
