A Pure Language

In Zephaniah we read, "Then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent." The prophecy of Zephaniah was fulfilled with the coming of the Messiah; for Christ Jesus did indeed bring a "pure language," and taught how all might "call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent," with one purpose.

In the days of Zephaniah idolatry seemed to prevail among the people, and he felt called upon to arouse them from their materiality; and in doing so, he told them plainly what would happen to Jerusalem. Our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, defines "Jerusalem," in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 589), thus: "Mortal belief and knowledge obtained from the five corporeal senses; the pride of power and the power of pride; sensuality; envy; oppression; tyranny. Home, heaven." And Jesus, too, told those around him just how "mortal belief and knowledge obtained from the five corporeal senses" had to be destroyed before the "pure language" of Spirit could be used.
