Hidden Signs of Jesus' Return: Reestablishment of the Hebrew Language
Our Hidden Signs of Jesus’ Return series has been inspired by “End Times Made Easy" by Joseph Morris. He shares his perspective on the topics included in this series if you would like to explore further. This series is very much a treasure hunt of any possible hidden signs that may be indicating the return of Jesus drawing near. Much like an OBGYN uses an ultrasound to give a reasonable indication of a new baby’s due date, my hope is that these hidden signs give you some perspective as to what is going on so you can stay aware and alert. 115 years ago, Eliezer ben Yehuda reestablished the Hebrew language. For almost 2,000 years, since 70 AD and the Jewish Diaspora worldwide, it had been dead. A prophecy in Zephaniah 3:9 says, “For at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call upon the name of the Lord and serve him with one accord.” It is basically saying that as the people return to the land, the Hebrew language will be reestablished. When they return to the Promised Land, they will have their “pure speech” returned to them. This has happened. Once again, it sure does seem that this is another hidden sign being fulfilled leading to the return of Jesus. I can’t help but think about Revelation 7:9, the day when “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.” I don’t know if the Hebrew language will be the one spoken, but it will be one that all understand. And every word will worship Jesus. Take heart because the day is drawing near when a unity for the king and his kingdom will remain forever!
