When All Will Speak God's Language
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the Name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent"
"Pure" may be defined as "Free from all heterogeneous [i.e. different] or extraneous matter, especially from anything that impairs or pollutes; free from that which defiles or contaminates; innocent; spotless" (The Consolidated Webster Encyclopedic Dictionary).
"30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
The LORD God is also the Word of God - Who was commissioned by the Father to do the Work of Creation and thereafter to be born as the human Messiah (see The Identity Of The LORD God and The LORD God Our Saviour).
"1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3 KJV)
Notice carefully however that a pure language isn't just one that is free of deficiencies or contradictions in pronunciation, spelling, meaning or grammar. A language can be spoken purely according to all of the rules, but still be impure if it contains words that are not true. The Devil can speak the words of any language purely, but his content is grossly impure because he's a liar and a pervert (see The Way That Satan Does Things and Satan's Sandals).
"8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44 KJV)
When humanity was created, the LORD gave them their instructions in His absolutely pure language. They then spoke that pure language, until they became sinners.
"2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." (Genesis 2:16-17 KJV)
The language of humanity became impure when "the smooth talking Devil" lied to the humans - who then also became corrupt in word.
"3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Sinful humanity continued on with the single "pure" original language - while making it grossly impure with lies and blasphemy. It was then that the LORD divided them into the "Babylon" of tongues (i.e. languages) that exist in the world today (see also The Sacred Name Controversies).
"11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 11:3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
The LORD is returning to restore the Kingdom of God on Earth and the pure use of language that existed at the beginning (see The First And Last Nation).
"3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9 KJV)
At that time, it won't merely be a language of literal purity, but moreover a language that will no longer be made impure by lies and blasphemy (see also Profane Not My Holy Name and Blaspheming The Name Of God).
"21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life." (Revelation 21:24-27 KJV)
All of the true prophets were so because they delivered the Word of God purely, without corruption. As one of the true prophets, Zephaniah too recognized the time of the LORD's "For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent."
"3:1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city! 3:2 She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God. 3:3 Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow. 3:4 Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. 3:5 The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.
Fact Finder: How did the once-righteous angel become known as Satan - which means "accuser" or "blasphemer"?
