Comfort through Confusion

"Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language."
GENESIS 11:7

Comfort through Confusion
This also serves to comfort the true Church, that God not only sees the enterprises, machinations, and counsels of the ungodly who oppose the Church but also laughs at them, as the second psalm (2:4) says: "He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision." But it is a scornful laughter; for fury, wrath, and dispersion follow upon this laughter. "He will speak at some time in His wrath," says David, "and terrify them in His fury" (Psalm 2:5) . . .. Thus the Holy Spirit comforts the true Church, which is being troubled by the church of Satan, lest it believe that God is paying no attention to it. He says: "The Lord sees what the ungodly are doing. And now He is getting ready to descend, that those who laugh smugly at all threats and mistakenly suppose that their power cannot be broken may become aware that their plans are not hidden from God." Yet God does not make use of battering-rams to break down walls, nor does He use other engines of war; He merely confuses their languages. This is truly an astounding method of conquering cities and of demolishing walls, but it is the surest and easiest of all.
