Language of the Kingdom

I am often asked, "Is there going to be one tongue or language used in the Kingdom of Heaven?"

Answer: Absolutely.

It is the same language that G-d uses within the scriptures and that is Hebrew.

Why? Hebrews 13:8.

"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever."

We all know what John chapter one tells us....that Y'shua is the Word of G-d. You also know me by now that I take every word literally. With that said, Can I not say, "The Word of G-d never changes." and "The language of G-d never changes." and be correct?

What about the other translations? Yes, it is good that we have many translations of the Bible. However, the KJV, NIV, ASB... are all beginner books. To know and fully understand G-ds Word, we must learn his language and dig into the Word of G-d and be totally immersed. We must become "echad" one with the Word of G-d.

Let me ask you a few questions. To settle a disagreement within these translations, where do we go????? To the original Hebrew text!!!! What about the B'rit Chadashah, the New Testament? Isn't it in Greek? Yes. However, what do the New Testament writers and Jesus reference? The original Hebrew text!!!! Y'shua did not have the Greek B'rit Chadashah on the road to Emmaus. No...he referenced the Tanakh, the original Hebrew text.

Now, getting back to the original question. Is there going to be one language in the Kingdom of Heaven? Isn't G-d's Word the same today, yesterday and forever? If you answered yes to both of these question, then what do you think it will be?

Finally, is it hard to learn a new language? Yes. However, isn't your relationship with G-d worth it?
