THE BABEL DISPERSION.
We must not think of these times as primitive. Indications are that it was a most remarkable civilisation that our race has ever known. Humans lived to great age. Language was uniform. Communication with God was freer than earlier on.
To get some hints from these times read Genesis, 4:20-22.
But that first civilisation with its accumulations of knowledge and experience, it’s treasures of art and literature, it’s agricultural and industries, is now gone..all swallowed up by the Flood. The Adamic race now have a new start in Noah and his three sons.
So God put upon them more restraints.
Human life becomes shorter, the length of a generation is much shorter.
The soil becomes more depleted.
Flesh becomes a part of man’s diet.
A restraint of “fear” towards man, also, had to be put upon the beasts.
Violence must also be restrained as it had carried through from the Pre-Flood days.
Amid these restraints, the faithfulness of God stands out in the sign of the Rainbow. The sign of Promise to give man assurance of Hope for the future.
But there was another restriction to be imposed, mainly the confusion of languages. The confusion was that God actually added new unspoken languages, never heard before.
The tower was being built to establish a huge racial centre, with a Zodiac Centre which represented the heavens. There has been such a tower called the Birs-Nimrod tower from the ruins of Babylon.
The sin against God was, that the builders were defying God’s command to replenish the earth.
They wanted a name for “themselves!”
Saying, “Let us not be scattered upon the earth. Stay here and make a name for ourselves, Let’s rebel.”
That world Kingdom would be in defiance of the Kindom of God.
It would have been a kingdom of Pride! set up by satan himself in utter rebellion against the Lord God Most High!!
As prophesied in Isaiah 13:19-22. Babylon is utterly destroyed.
But Mystery Babylon lives on,
as we find in the Book of Revelation.
When Jesus returns, it’s evil system is completely annihilated.
NONE OTHER CAN EVER RULE THIS
EARTH EXCEPT, THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!!
Come soon, Lord JESUS!
