Tower of Babel
Reblogged from Unashamed of Jesus
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Genesis 11:4
The Tower of Babel was another example of humanity’s efforts to wage war against God. Not long ago God cleansed the Earth from evil with the global flood, it didn’t take humans long to continue their rebellious ways and show a clear hatred for their Creator
The Tower of Babel was supposed to be a structure that would reach the Heavens and make a great name for themselves. We still see this in todays society, humans continue to build large architecture to display their power and dominance.
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. Genesis 11:6-7
God had a simple solution to resolve this issue, he would confuse their language. Remember God promised with his covenant with Noah never to flood the Earth again. So rather than destroy humanity again, he just confused them
The word Babel actually means confusion. As it todays language we might hear someone say they are “babbling” or “baby babble” the word is derived from this event
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11:8-9
God confirms in the scriptures, he confused the languages of the Earth to disperse everyone on the Earth. This is why we have many different languages and countries today.
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Revelation 17:5
So you might say , “what does any of this have to do with me today” Well Satan continues to kingdom of Earth today called “Spiritual Babylon” this is a spiritual kingdom that is still at war with God and its main purpose to bring confusion to people to lead them astray. Spiritual Babylon will try to control the entire world through power of money, politics, entertainment, any influence it can
Eventually this Kingdom will be destroyed forever by Christ! Be careful whos influence you are under!
