Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will give to the peoples purified lips, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder.

Yoni Tzadok has opened a school near Jericho for the purpose of training priests for the third Temple. Tzadok is training the kohanim (priests) and the Leviim (men from the tribe of Levi) for service. The school is named Bet HaMoked.

Below are some quotes from Tzadok.

“My school is open for any person. Not just kohanim and Leviim, and not just for Jews. Muslim or Christian, this is the next stage of the world so everybody should prepare.”

“It is important to know who can enter the Bet HaMikdash (Temple) and who cannot. For example, if a man arrives at the Temple, before he enters, they must ask him how he arrived. If he said that he came by bus, he cannot enter because the bus is, by default, ritually impure. So there have to be guards at the entrance to the Temple to ensure the purity of the sacrifices.” -Yoni Tzadok

For Temple service there will be one pure language, Lashon HaKodesh or the holy tongue. Modern Hebrew is not the same language.

“In the world of the Temple, there will be no English and no other languages. Because of Man’s sins in the generation of the Tower of Babel, all the men were dispersed and their languages confused. The Third Temple will fix us, taking us backward and forward at the same time. The world will return to the days of old, before the sins, when everyone spoke the Lashon HaKodesh.”

Genesis 11:7-9 Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. And from there the LORD dispersed them over the face of all the earth.

The idea of a singular language is also a hallmark of the Millennial Kingdom.

For then I will give to the peoples purified lips…

Purified”…The Hebrew word is barar. It means: to purge out, purify, to choose, select; to cleanse, make shining, polish. It is a simple action verb in Hebrew.

The Hebrew word for “lips” is saphah. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: lip, language, speech. The term “lip” is synonymous with a language or speech.

In Genesis 11, Babel means confusion. The tower was not completed. Man apart from God equals confusion.

As we transition to the context of the verse in Zephaniah 3 is all the peoples. Verse 6 mentions “nations”. Verse 8 talks about the “nations, kingdoms and the whole earth”.  Verse 19 states the “whole earth”Verse 20 discusses the “nations of the earth”.

Zephaniah 3:9 will undo the scattering and confusion created at Babel. In the Millennial Kingdom, humanity will be under the leadership of Jesus. People will be personally taught by Him in His ways. Under the leadership of Christ, people should generally have a better sense of direction and focus.

Millennial Kingdom: Yasha` Yeshua

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

The term “victorious warrior” is most interesting in the original language. The Hebrew word for “victorious” is yasha`. It is a verb. The grammar says the warrior is the cause. It means to save, deliver from moral troubles; to give victory to.

The Hebrew word for “warrior” is gibbowr, a strong and mighty man. –Strong’s Concordance

The strong and mighty warrior will be a savior. He will and has delivered from moral trouble or sin. He will give military victory to Israel.

The noun form of yasha` is Yeshua. The Hebrew name for Jesus is Yeshua.

The term for LORD is Yahweh, The Existing One. This is the definitive name for God. This is the proper name of the Hebrew God of the Bible. Jehovah is a word that has been translated to English from the Hebrew, Yahweh. The correct spelling is YHWH (Hebrew font is not available).  Scholars refer to this as the Tetragrammaton, Greek for four letters. This name is so sacred, Jews refuse to pronounce it. The name is first introduced in Exodus 3:14 when Moses and God are having a discussion. God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

The LORD, Yahweh is speaking in this verse in Zephaniah 3.

Yeshua Himself connects the dots in the Book of John. Jesus makes seven statements in the Book of John explaining “I am…”

I am the bread of life (John 6:35).

I am the light of the world (John 8:12).

I am the gate (John 10:9).

I am the good shepherd (John 10:11).

I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25).

I am the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6).

I am the vine (John 15:5).

Yeshua is Yahweh, The Existing One. He saves. He will have military conquest.

John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM.”

Jesus Christ is the victorious warrior. He will dwell or tabernacle with the nation we know as Israel. The verse uses four different terms in Hebrew to describe the excitement and joy of Christ. He too will shout for joy with the introduction of His Kingdom. Yeshua will celebrate.

Good times are coming.

Millennial Kingdom: One Universal Language

Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will give to the peoples purified lips, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder.

What in the world are purified lips? The Hebrew word for “lips” is saphah. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: lip, language, speech. The term “lip” is synonymous with a language or speech.

The New Testament equivalent is “tongue” or glossa in the Greek. For example Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance. 

The Bible is talking about foreign languages. This is not a reference to a bunch of “spiritual” non-intelligible mumbo jumbo that nobody knows what is being said. 1 Corinthians 14:4 The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the church. Get over yourself. If nobody understands it, what good is it? The context of 1 Corinthians 14 is a discussion about foreign languages. There are better gifts, desire those.

The future kingdom holds one language.

“Purified”…The Hebrew word is barar. It means: to purge out, purify, to choose, select; to cleanse, make shining, polish. It is a simple action verb in Hebrew.

The context of the verse in Zephaniah 3 is all the peoples. Verse 6 mentions “nations”. Verse 8 talks about the “nations, kingdoms and the whole earth”.  Verse 19 states the “whole earth”. Verse 20 discusses the “nations of the earth”.

Simply stated, God is going to purge the languages and choose one. Zephaniah 3:9 states there will be one language spoken on Earth in the Millennial Kingdom. I suspect the chosen language will be Hebrew, but whatever God chooses.

Once upon a time, humanity spoke one language. Genesis 11:1 Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.

Genesis 11:4 They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

The pride of humanity is on display. They were out to “make a name for themselves”. Man is telling God, “We know best. We know the consequences. And we are going to do this regardless.” Humanity chose to separate itself from God’s direction. This was likely not the first warning from God. Humanity knew the consequences. Mankind knew there was a risk of being “scattered abroad”. But, man rebelled…

…And God responded accordingly as promised. Genesis 11:9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.

Babel means confusion. And the tower was not completed. Man apart from God equals confusion.

Zephaniah 3:9 will undo the scattering and confusion created at Babel. In the Millennial Kingdom, humanity will be under the leadership of Jesus. People will be personally taught by Him in His ways. Under the leadership of Christ, people should generally have a better sense of direction and focus.

When channeled in the right direction…Genesis 11:6 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.
