Prophecy (Rev) refers to revelation. The content of that message was to foretell the future as this was needed in apostolic age during writing of Scripture and ceased when books were completed.
Reference passages on gift of Prophecy, Rom 12:6, 1 Corinthians 12:10, 14:1-40, Ephesians 4:11
####Toungue and Toungues
In 1 Corinthians, Paul was weeding out the mis-use of tongues used by corinthians. Gift of tongues were given as a sign to unbelievers and particularly to unbelieving Jews
(v21) and sign ceased at the end of Apostolic age (which was temporary gift).
According to Scripture Christlikeness never require speaking of tongues, for Christ never did.
1 Corinthians 14:2 The word known does not exists in original text, which was completely misunderstood by Pentecostal’s & charismatic’s in result of it they concluding it as heavenly language. The word unknown is used by translator to make difference between tongue and tongues to the readers, so every singular word tongue is used with word unknown. Paul talk about the legitimate gift of tongues when he used plural word. And singular word tongue was referring to non-legitimate gift.
####(KJV Greek-English Interlinear)
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

If you are someone who speaks in Tongues? and puzzled why does it persist into the present day?
And, if the sign gifts are to confirm the Word, why doesn’t the Word still need confirming today?
Tongues were real earthly Languages
(Acts 2:1–10) spoke by Jews (only) on Pentecostal day and remained as sign till apostolic age. So called tongues spoke in this Church Age are “gibberish” not an gods authenticated language but that from mans deceitful heart, which came to existence in recent centuries. Toungues were ceased from establishment of canon till cult religion invented (Chrasmatic & penticostal Movements).
Scripture clearly defines signs & miracles were for non belivers not for one who belived in Him.
Never worship God in UNHOLY way nor in own ways,
Leviticus 10 “Nadab and Abihu” also worshipped God but they died of wrong method that displeased God, they didnt had wrong motives at worship but Scripture records as they used some strange fire which was not acceptable to God. And in
Leviticus 26 God commands to
“reverence my sanctuary” which means pay highest respect to one Who is above all, even if we go to meet Prime Minister we dont go in shorts and T-shirts and nor use loose words in speech, so how then we disrespect God (by gibberish languages) and discrespectful apperance in Churches.
There are no tongues gift as all are man made psycho feel to build there own religion for own benifit and emotions are big influences (records in all cult development leaders history). Scripture never teaches God is emotional God, but He is of Facts and Truth who is real.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”
There are no divine prophecy of future given in this day, revelation ends saying,
Revelation 22:18, For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Which not only applies to Revelation book but also applies to Whole Scripture. Looking in to today’s prophecy, non were proven as Gods proclamed words as all fell short to show His appearance ( ex. Mormons, Jehovah Witness, even Prophecy Gospel, etc… and more). Nothing since Revelation till today is added to Scripture, which tempted man to developed his own varitions in Bible’s “Scripture” referes to original autograph of GOD and “Bible” refere’s to translation of those Scriptures in local languages.
Man should belive from heart and live in inspired Gods word (wisdom) with full heartedly.
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men,”
