I would interpret it as such: within the context of the chapter as a whole, Paul gives instruction pertaining to church discipline, so this bit seems to be saying "these gifts are good, when used with careful discernment, and for their purpose. Outside of that, it can be detrimental to both believers and unbelievers."

The context is that tongues are for a few individuals to demonstrate to a group of unbelievers of the same tongue the power of God. It is only a sign to the unbeliever if the unbeliever is of that tongue and can understand it. (Acts 2:8) And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?

When Haman maneuvered the decree to kill the Jews, it was Nissan 14 (the day Jesus was sacrificed,) Esther told the Jews to fast for three days with her before she went to the King. No food or water, a fast to the death. On the third day, she went to the king and their deliverance came. There is ...

Background The premise of the "gap" of Daniel's 70 weeks is both structural and doctrinal.

How about this. The army of the book of Joel maybe talking about people that turn into something that eats flesh of anything living. Somekind of zombie. It says when they fall upon the sword they will not be wounded and their face is the face of blackness .

Heaven can mean several things: The abode of God/angels/righteous The firmament (sky) State of utmost happiness These are related concepts, and even in ancient languages, these meanings are conflated.
