I wonder how often it’s practiced in churches to have one speak in tongues and another one interpret the message.
What I have seen practiced is for people to speak in tongues and interpret, one after another, two or three times. (I Cor 27)
I have never heard one speak in tongues and another interpret, though I have read of a man who had a ministry, who spoke in tongues one time, and his wife who was with him went into an interpretation immediately following.
This couple was known to find confirmation of the Lord’s will from each other. He would tell of how he would receive something from the Lord, only to hear it from his wife later on. This would happen without his telling her what he had received.
The message she gave was about the ministry and what things God was going to do, as I recall.
Tongues and interpretation may have several differnt uses. God can use the manifestations how he chooses, it seems to me. He isn’t limited by our doctrines or what we think about them.
But I wonder how many churches as a regular practice have one speak in a tongue and another interpret. I also wonder how well it works.
In the church I was in we were instructed to pray(believe) we may interpret if we were going to speak in a tongue in order to bring forth a message of the Spirit for the edification, comfort, and exhortation of the people present, and we were held responsible to interpret if we spoke in tongues for the purpose of building up the people present with that manifestion and it’s companion manifestion of interpretation of tongues. This we did at every meeting throughout that church which was a world wide organization.
If the length of the interpretation was about as long as the length he spoke in a tongue, and the message was Biblicaly correct and had within it, comfort and exhortaton, and was edifying, we would assume it to be correct and what was the jist of what had been spoken in the tongue.
The leadership was taught to have the faith in God to be able to complete an interpretation. (Should one of the new ones who are learning to walk in the worship manifestions, but have for one reason or another fallen short on the interpretation)
Correction: I Cor 14:27.

That reminds me of an old joke:
I was home-schooled. Grandpa taught history. Grandma taught history revisionism.
