Why Did God Confuse the Language at the Tower of Babel?

Could A Common Language
Usher in World Government?

I am amazed by significance of language in the story of the famed tower of Babel  in Genesis 11. Those people were attempting to build a tower that reached to heaven. 

God  decided to stop it by confusing their language. As a result, they were scattered across the whole face of the earth by God.

The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

While various explanations of this verse suggest the tower to be the first 
attempt at a one-world government and also a ziggurat for the purposes of star worship, the unity of their language is what God says will give them power to achieve whatever they want.

That is astonishing. Power to achieve whatever they want.

God clearly opposed this unity of language and stopped the tower's construction. What the builders wanted to do was not in accordance with His will.

Can it be that when the Holy Spirit is poured out on believers in the book of Acts, their new prayer language is the reversal of this confusion of speech?  A spiritual prayer language in an unknown tongue which unifies God's people in order to usher in His kingdom on the earth?  

Most theologians believe that the anti-christ will control Earth through a one-world  government. In order to do that effectively, he will need the ability to communicate. 

Consider the Internet, which can translate any language at the touch of the key board. Could this technology be the increase of knowledge spoken of by Daniel in 12: 24,  "But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase." 

I see speaking images on TV and internet every day and knowledge increases exponentially. What does all this mean?
Watch and pray. Look up, for your redemption draws nigh. Luke 21:28.
