The Future Unity of Language

This is the eleventh article in a twelve-part series that develops a theology of language by examining what the Bible says about this topic.

All of the world’s languages will one day unite for one cause.   Revelation 7:9 says, “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…” (ESV).  That multitude proceeded to worship the Lamb.  At the end of time, people will unite, despite their linguistic differences, to praise the Lamb.  We have noted how human language has caused strife and division, but those who submit to the Lamb will one day unite to use language for the common purpose of praising Him.
