No, of course not - no one can say that (a good example in the Tanakh is Hannah).
As Elohim sees our heart/thoughts, one can pray surely also inwardly, but the initial question referred to "praying in tongues".

Yes, as mentioned already, the term “Christians” seems to have been used by ignorant people, and in a scornful way. However, I would emphasize that the original derogatory term was a Hebrew one: Mashiachim, i.e., Messianics (it seems…"
I didn't assert that the talmidim called themselves Christians, at least not in this last reply.
ACTS 26:28 and 1. PETER 4:16 seem to support the notion that 'Christian' was indeed a derogatory term, once used by Agrippa and…"
The Tanakh contains hundreds of prophecies about Yeshua, and many prophecies about the outpouring of the Rauch HaKodesh (pointing towards some anointing). The Torah was given 50 days after the Exodus, and the power to fulfil the Torah…"
Firstly, and to take the edge off a bit, I'd like to give you my take on the term "Christian": You will probably agree that the "Whore of Babylon" is Antichrist, viz. that it promotes a counterfeit…"
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, I'm aware of the timing. 'Brit chadashah' in JER 31:31 aptly describes what occurred on Shavuot in 31 AD, so - sorry, please be patient with me in regards to the usage of the 'correct'…"
I personally believe in this prophecy, and my main argument is the Jubilee year of 1917 (and 1967, and 2017).
The biblical year starts in Aviv, thus the Jubilee year 2017/18 will end mid-March 2018 (and I personally believe that…"
Sorry for not replying earlier, i.e., 8 years ago :-)
From what I've read, checking NASA sites (though they are liars in general) the blood moons are not simply nonsense, but signs according to scripture. Here's a pamphlet I…"
I've just joined Nazarene Space and came across this discussion.

Favorite version of Scriptures:
Hebraic Roots Version
I have been in a Pentecostal church for 25 years (I speak in tongues) before I was excommunicated as I wanted to keep Shabbat. In Paul's sense I am Jewish as I have received the Holy Spirit = circumcised in heart. I would also like to get physically circumcised (Brit Milah), but it's difficult to find someone to perform this here in Scotland, or it's very expensive.
I have visited Israel three times, and just got back with a set of 'kosher' tzitzits (with tekhelet), and I also wear them.
Generally, I have figured out that nothing of the Torah has been abolished, and that a true 'Christian' (if you still allow the term) seeks to obey the entire Torah on top of accepting Christ - not in order to be saved, but because he loves God.
As to the Oral Law, I still have to look into this. I'd always point to "thou shalt not add...", etc. but Paul for example seems to have indeed kept certain Jewish traditions.
I've just started reading the HRV, and I think it's my favourite version of scripture. Until now it had been the KJV, as I wasn't aware that the Greek is already a corruption (surprise, surprise - considering all the replacement elsewhere). Whether those apocrypha mentioned are canonical, I can't tell at the moment, but I have started reading Jasher, Jubilees & Enoch a while ago.
I like "Hatikvah", "Jerusalem of Gold" and "The Messiah" from Haendel.
Generally, classical & Jewish music.
Hebrew language (started to learn), history.
Favorite Television Shows and Movies:
# The Young Messiah (2016)
# AD Kingdom
# Ben Hur (old and new version)

How did you hear of NazareneSpace?
I had found out that, e.g., the Waldenses kept Shabbat. I guess browsing the Internet on this topic, i.e., 'Christians' keeping the Torah, etc. - and then I landed on NazareneSpace by 'coincidence' (though I don't believe in coincidences).
