“And the Lord said, Behold, the people IS ONE (capitals mine), and they have all ONE (capitals mine) language; and this (the building of the Tower of Babel) 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. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”
In the very first book of the Bible, Moses tells us early on the earth, but after the Flood, there was only ONE group of people, all speaking ONE language. Of course, this makes total sense because ALL people after the Flood were descendants from ONE family; Noah, his wife and their three sons and daughters-in-law. They all early on lived in ONE area (the Middle East). Their descendants also had ONE “common thought” on which they all agreed. They all agreed on what they wanted to do! They were unrestrained. God saw this was not good and went down and for the first time in recorded history man was physically and geographically separated from one another and dispersed throughout the world. They had their ONE language changed so they would speak different languages. Being dispersed around the world and having their language altered changed their unified, Satan driven efforts to make themselves equal to God was now severely thwarted! But, what were their combined efforts that so disturbed God?
In an earlier post, Is the Tower of Babel being rebuilt today?, I discussed how it appears today man is trying to emulate the thoughts and actions of the people from the days of Nimrod. If you recall, Nimrod (the great grandson of Noah) is regarded as the very first global ruler named in the Bible. He established the city of Babel (believed to be near today’s Babylon) and desired to build a tower to Heaven that would have allowed mankind to “reach” Heaven on their own WITHOUT the help of Jesus’s later intervention and sacrifice for their sins. This exactly mimics Satan’s past goal:
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer (Satan), son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
His people agreed with him and put their combined efforts into building the Tower of Babel! Interestingly, Nimrod viewed this ability to build the tower also to be ultimately a way to hinder their expected coming, future global disbursement:
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city (Babel) and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
Nimrod, an evil ruler influenced by the demonic desires of Satan, believed if he could get all of mankind together working towards one goal, he could eventually do what Satan had long desired, i.e. to be equal to God in Heaven. But God is far smarter than Satan! He knew if all the people of the earth had one thought and were ruled by an evil man, they could accomplish whatever they wanted to do. This was not part of God’s long term plan for the Salvation of man. So, to thwart their efforts, He came down from Heaven, changed their language so they spoke differently from one another and then dispersed them throughout the world. Throughout the Bible, God’s ultimate plan has been to keep people separated geographically, linguistically, culturally, etc. Only then could His Son, Jesus Christ, Return to this earth and FINALLY reunite the world in His peaceful and righteous 1,000 year Reign on earth, also called the Millennium Reign of Christ. Let us NEVER forget. God created ALL the nations:
“And to make thee (the Jews) high above all nations which he (God) hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.”
Today, throughout the world, there are many, very strong movements to “globalize”. What does this mean? All you have to do is read the newspapers; watch the news; and/or listen to the liberal elites who espouse the idea that IF we could eliminate all NATIONAL governments, all ECONOMIC/MONETARY and RELIGOUS differences, lasting peace in the world would surely result. They believe these age old differences between people are what cause the frictions that ultimately always results in war, poverty and different social/economic standings for the people throughout the world.
Think of the international crisis right now that is resulting in mass migrations from the Middle East into Europe or the ILLEGAL immigration of Central American and Mexican people into the U.S. Globalists would say borders are a hindrance to world peace and therefore people should be allowed to live anywhere they want even though the Bible often refers positively to the sovereignty and rights of people living in their own land with their own laws. Visitors should be welcomed but must legally abide by the Laws of the land and must assimilate into the land of the people that already live there. Do you want more proof this is ongoing TODAY? Recently the United Nations (an advocate of Globalization’s benefits) passed an Agreement called “The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration”. In other words, it will no longer be up to the individual countries to decide who enters their countries but what the United Nations dictates! Or, look at what French President Emmanuel Macron is attempting to do with a NEW, reconstituted 10 nation European community. Yes, you are right. In the Last Days the anti-christ will come to power though a 10 nation, reborn Roman/European Empire. Coincidental? I doubt it!
As Mikhail Gorbachev said in his 1987 book Perestroika (which translated means “restructuring”), only by eliminating different governments, currencies, and religions can the world survive long term. America has long been the global bastion for freedom. Unfortunately, many feel this “nationalistic” approach to an individual’s success is detrimental to other countries where those freedoms do not currently exist. George Soros, liberal billionaire and globalist, went as far to say “The greatest hinderance to world peace is the United States.” His view, espoused by so many others like him, is to create a one-world government, a one-world currency, and a one-world religion. Secretive global organizations like the Illuminati and Skull and Bones have had many political leaders, including Presidents from both the Republican and Democrat parties as members. They agree with the idea of a one world government! Sounds kind of familiar with what the Bible prophesies for the Last Days, doesn’t it?
One World Government
We are told in Revelation 13:7, “And it was given unto him (the anti-christ) to make war with all the saints (the Believers in Jesus), and to overcome them: and power was given unto him over ALL KINDREDS, AND TONGUES, AND NATIONS (capitals mine).” Here we are clearly told that in the Last Days, an individual (aka the anti-christ) will be given global authority over all people, all languages, and all nations. His attempt to finally subjugate all the governments of the world (except the Jews in Israel and the true Believers in Christ) will be successful! He will be on his way to a one world government as prophesied in the Bible.
One World Currency
Again, the Bible is very forthright when it tells us in Revelation 13:16-18, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast (the anti-christ), or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast (anti-christ): for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).” No one expecting to go to Heaven should take ever the Mark. If you are here at that time and take the Mark, you are condemned to spend hell for eternity. JUST DON’T TAKE IT!!! God has your back!
One World Religion
Last, but definitely NOT least, we are also told in the Last Days, the anti-christ will have a right hand “man” referred to as the False Prophet who espouses a final, one-world religion which includes the worship of the anti-christ:
“And I beheld another beast (the False Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast (anti-christ) before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast (the anti-christ), whose deadly wound was healed.”
Perhaps, more damning information is found in Revelation 13:8, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (the anti-christ), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” In other words, if you are still here during the final 7 years (Tribulation), worship Jesus Christ as your Savior. DO NOT worship the anti-christ. DO NOT TAKE his mark so you can buy or sell. Only by remaining true to what the Bible teaches will your name be in the Book of Life enabling you to spend eternity in Heaven with Jesus.
Satan has long fought to deceive humans and encourage them to join him and to disavow Jesus. God separated man from each other and changed their languages so collectively getting together would be more difficult. But, thankfully we have a Promise from God there will be a time when globalization DOES work! “And in his name shall the Gentiles (nations) trust.” – Matthew 12:21. Only when Christ Returns and sets up His 1,000 year Reign on earth will we finally have a “government” we can trust; one that is right for everyone who are His Believers who will then populate the world. To His Righteous Reign there will be no end!
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the GOVERNMENT (capitals mine) shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace THERE SHALL BE NO END (capitals mine), upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it, with judgment and justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
Again, His Word is so comforting to know and embrace regardless of the many evil things occurring in the world today, the time will come quickly where we will live in peace and righteousness for eternity with Jesus as our Ruler! Of that, DO NOT BE AFRAID. WE AWARE of what the Bible teaches us. And, let us all do what we are instructed by Jesus to do and that is to “…therefore comfort one another with these words.”
May God Bless you as we await the coming “election” of Jesus!
