1 Corinthians 14:26-40 NLT “Well, my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. WHEN YOU MEET TOGETHER, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you. No more than two or three should speak in tongues. They must speak one at a time, and someone must interpret what they say. But if no one is present who can interpret, they must be silent in your church meeting and speak in tongues to God privately. Let two or three people prophesy, and let the others evaluate what is said. But if someone is prophesying and another person receives a revelation from the Lord, the one who is speaking must stop. In this way, all who prophesy will have a turn to speak, one after the other, so that everyone will learn and be encouraged. Remember that people who prophesy are in control of their spirit and can take turns. For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people. Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings. Or do you think God’s word originated with you Corinthians? Are you the only ones to whom it was given? If you claim to be a prophet or think you are spiritual, you should recognize that what I am saying is a command from the Lord himself. But if you do not recognize this, you yourself will not be recognized. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking in tongues. But be sure that everything is done properly and in order.”
TO BETTER UNDERSTAND VERSE 34-35 ABOUT WOMEN BEING SILENT IN CHURCH MEETINGS READ 1 TIMOTHY 2:11-14
1 Timothy 2:11-14 KJV “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”
This wasn’t Paul’s rule, it came from Jesus Christ.
And why is there always one main guy or gal doing all of the talking in these church meetings when God says, 2 or 3 can take the lead in prophesying? And He also said if a revelation comes to someone listening to whoever is speaking the first speaker should be silent and let that person talk. Everyone can prophesy in turn and teach each other the instructions say. This is not what we see in church meetings today even by church leaders some of us like. So I ask you the question, is God really there?🤔 To answer that question in short, “Yes,” in some cases He is still there. But He is warning ALL (7) churches TO REPENT. The ones who refuse to repent He will leave (remove their lamp stand), and some have already had their lamps put out because they insisted on doing things their own way.😪 Why are these super spiritual people (church leaders) ignoring these simple instructions for how God desires HIS CHURCH MEETING to be conducted? And most of us already know how phony the speaking in tongues (or other languages) thing is at these meetings; 20 or more people cackling like geese all at the same time supposedly filled with the Holy Ghost? Their filled with ghosts alright but they’re not Holy. God said only one person at a time should speak in tongues, 2 or 3 people at the most in a church meeting, and someone MUST interpret what is said. If there is no interpreter the one speaking in tongues should be silent. Would God write that instruction then get inside of people and make them go against what He wrote?😳 Of course not! That would make Him a liar. The Bible says at the end of 1 Corinthians chapter 14 that whoever thinks he/she is spiritual and doesn’t recognize these instructions he/she won’t be recognized by God, or whoever ignores these instructions will be ignored. And for the record these aren’t my instructions either, just as they were not Paul’s. I just happen to agree with God as Paul did. They’re the commands of the Lord. If you take offense at them, you’re taking offense at God.
Luke 7:23 NET “BLESSED is anyone who takes no offense at me.”
