“Hallelujah is Not a Heavenly Language, Speaking in Tongues is” Pastor’s Statement That Sparked a Debate Online
In a video which has gone viral on the internet, a pastor identified as Abel Domina of Abel Damina Ministry and Power City International, stated that “hallelujah”, a popular word commonly used by Christians to hallow God, is not a heavenly language as many say it is.
Pastor Abel made this known while preaching on a topic he themed, “Who Is God” and noted that “speaking in tongues” is the actual heavenly language, not “Hallelujah”.
“In the days of Moses, people worship many things call God. That’s why when you read the Bible, you will come across ‘Lord God’. The word could mean a judge. Remember that the Bible was written within human culture.
The Bible is not an abstract book that fell from the sky. It was written based on what happened in time in the interaction between God and man, men and men, circumstances, events etc. This is because it was written in human language.
“Since the Bible was written in human language, like the way people sing in church, “Hallelujah is our heavenly language’, stop that. Don’t let illiteracy undress you in public. How can Hallelujah be heavenly language, what makes it heavenly in the first place? It is human language.
If you want the heavenly language, speak in tongues. Therefore, speaking in tongue is heavenly language”
