• Painted rendition of the Tower of Babel
January 10th, 2014
In Genesis 11:1 it says, “Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.” A unified people with a common speech rebelled against God. He responded by confusing their language and scattering them across the face of the earth. The multitudes of languages that are spoken across the globe today are the result of that event.

Recently I attended the Leadership Summit at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. One topic of prayer and discussion was the possibility of the text of the Bible being translated into every known spoken language on the Earth in the next decade or two. As we were praying, The Lord spoke to my heart that “if the ideas and concepts of the text of the Bible were put into every tongue, believers in Yeshua around the world would have a common language again.” There would still be a multitude of tongues, tribes and peoples. But the remnant of each language group would have the words of the Biblical reality as a common language.

Can you imagine the power of a remnant within each tongue on earth praying and singing Biblical phrases to The Lord (Revelation 7:9-11)? That would redeem the curse from our corporate rebellion. How? – by praising Him in all those tongues created in that moment of sinfulness. The text in Genesis 11:6 tells us that with one language “nothing

[we] propose to do will be withheld from [us].” Let’s pray for this project to be completed in our generation.
