should not be overlooked -
especially at a time
when the world is going back.
is about the Tower of Babel -
a structure that was built
by a unified people
who thought they were God.
“Now the whole earth
had one language and one speech.
And it came to pass,
as they journeyed from the east,
that they found a plain
in the land of Shinar,
and they dwelt there.”
Today, the land of Shinar
is called Babylon
which is located in Iraq.
It’s interesting to me that it says
the people journeyed east.
This means the people had to come
from East of Babylon.
I wonder, did they come from present-day Iran?
And how does that even make sense
if Noah’s ark landed on Mount Ararat
in the land of Javan -
which now borders
Turkey and Armania?
The people must have come from the north,
and then traveled east building their kingdoms.
I really don’t know? Do you?
The people in Babylon,
under the direction of Nimrod,
(the greatest Hunter to ever live)
said to one another,
“Come, let us make bricks
and bake them thoroughly.
They had brick for stone,
and they had asphalt for mortar.
And they said, “Come,
let us build ourselves a city,
and a tower whose top
is in the heavens;
let us make a name for ourselves,
lest we be scattered abroad
over the face of the whole earth.”
You would think
the Lord would appreciate
the collaborative unity,
a united nation working as one.
But the scripture says,
“But the Lord came down
to see the city and the tower
which the sons of men had built.
And the Lord said,
“Indeed the people are one
and they all have one language,
and this is what they begin to do;
now nothing that they propose to do
will be withheld from them.
Come, let Us go down
and there confuse their language,
that they may not understand
one another’s speech.”
It appears from scripture
that the Lord (and others)
descended from the heavenly realms
to stop mankind from working as one.
It appears the United Nations are a
conglomerate of people
wanting to control their own destiny -
their own outcome.
The Lord purposely chose
to confuse their speech
so that humanity
would not be able to act like God.
Can you imagine
if a United Nations was rebirthed?
What would God think of a group of leaders,
acting together to perfect humanity?
Would they not build towers
to dedicate to themselves,
or shrines and make people bow down?
Would they not seek world peace
and try to create unity
through a false god and a false religion?
They would probably encourage
a one World religion -
where a universal God is the centrality.
They would probably want to work together
to build a one world economy.
A United Nations
would bring forth the beast -
a beast that would be created
from a United people on earth.
And the number of the beast would be 666 -
representing the completion of man.
During the days of Nimrod, in Babylon,
“the Lord scattered them abroad
over the face of all the earth,
and they ceased building the city.
Therefore its name is called Babel,
because there the Lord
confused the language
of all the earth;
and from there the Lord
scattered them abroad
over the face of all the earth.”
Why do you think
the Most Holy God
did not want people working together?
Was it because he did not love them?
Or was it because
God knows the heart of man -
and He knows
the unified heart of humanity
wants to be like Him?
What have we become?
We are not only a humanity
that does not know how to steward
what God created,
but we are a humanity
that thinks we can control everything.
God help us.
God Forgive us
for taking you out of everything.
I pray that we would
return to our first love.
