The Power Of Language

The Power of Language
Through the advent of many languages the masses were scattered at the Tower of Babel when they rebelled against God. The many languages made them weak and rendered them incapable of reaching a common goal. “The LORD said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.” (Gen 11:6) It was obviously the language of politic and industry but, though it was able to accomplish great things, it was not in alignment with the purposes of God. It was of the spirit of Lucifer who said, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly (Isa 14:13).” It was the language of self-pursuit denying the headship of Jehovah. “The power of language is its ability to produce but if it is not for His glory, it will eventually be to our detriment” (M.Munroe). But Holy Spirit has brought the language of heaven (Acts2:4;19:6) to unite us for the advancing of the Kingdom of God.
