OUR TOWER OF BABEL

Posted by Job on March 1, 2007

Genesis 11:9 – 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.

We generally do not discuss current events in our daily devotionals and weekly sermons; there is a section of the main website that deals with that. However, the current debate on immigration, which is taking place in Europe, Canada, and the United States, is very relevant. You have people on one side who believe in borders and national boundaries, and you have others who reject such notions and believe in unregulated movement from one nation to another. While my humanitarian and political views and emotions cause me to side with the “no borders” side, the Word of God makes it clear that the opposite view is the correct one. It is essential to regulate borders and culture to maintain order within a nation, and it is God’s Will for there to be as much order as possible so that as many people as possible will be in a position to A) appreciate and receive God’s Power and B) will not strife with and harm other people. Of course, if that is God’s Word and Will, Satan is going to work to accomplish the opposite. Opening borders causes an influx of people with different languages, borders, and (yes) motives to be quickly thrown together, and the inevitable result is chaos, unemployment, family breakdown, crime, violence, racism and hatred, uncleanness and disease, and the spread of pagan religions and practices. Of course, such is a dream playground for Satan and his army of demons and human accomplices, but it is contrary to the desires of anyone whose heart is after the Righteous God Jehovah.

In Order Not Babel, we introduced the subject of how part of the work of the anti – Christ spirit that is proliferating across the earth is to remove man from natural orderly harmony of God. For this devotional, we shall discuss how this spirit is operating to set the global stage for the coming of the anti – Christ using the “open borders” concept. People who support “open borders” claim that the reason why poverty, war, disease, and discrimination exist is because of political, economic, social, and religious distinctions between people. They believe that so long as there are distinct groups of people, one group inevitably either cause conflict with or ignore the plight of those in the other group. Such persons believe that the only solution is to eliminate all of the barriers by merging all of humanity into one global community. This idea has much support. It is the goal of radical Islam. It is the goal of the New Age movement and of many eastern religions. It is the goal of the Mormomism, Catholicism, and some strains Protestantism and of Judaism. It is the goal of Marxist, socialist, and communist political movements. It is even the goal of mystical and political science fiction adherents i.e. Star Trek and Star Wars. And it is also the goal of many free – market capitalists. They all believe that the unification of man is the solution to our problems and are working to bring it about.

These people are going to get their wish. Mankind will unite, and it will lead to peace and prosperity. Of course, it will be brought in by “the beast” of Revelation; the “little horn” of Daniel, and be the precursor to the Great Tribulation, the most sorrow – filled period mankind and the earth has ever known: the calm before the storm. These people who are wishing for the unity of man are going to get exactly what they want, and the result will be much more than what they bargained for: the coming to power of the greatest evil that the world has ever known, and the greatest period of disease, warfare, oppression, religious persecution, natural disasters, poverty, and global suffering that the world has ever seen. What they are working for has to come to pass, for the Scriptures are true and must come to pass. The Scriptures were written at the inspiration of a Divine God who knew the fallen nature of man, and that because of that fallen nature man would ultimately and finally reject God for himself, meaning himself in the form of the individual and himself in the form of the fallen nature of man personified as the anti – Christ. Not everyone will make this foolish choice, but most will. The only important question is what choice will you make? Do not think that you can wait around and see “the beast” come to power, and then give your life to Christ. The beast is the nature of man, and he will use the power of man, the cunning of Satan, and the workings of the false prophet to brainwash all men except a few chosen and reserved by God. No matter the age, God will always have “His people on the ground”, and Jesus Christ said that even if no people existed God would raise them up out of stones! If you are not among the chosen, those whom Revelation speaks of, the 144,000 who will not be harmed plus those who will choose God but pay with their lives (for the purposes of adding to the judgment of Babylon), you will not be able to resist the beast. A form of madness will be unleashed throughout the earth, spiritual madness that will cloud the mind, and all those who rejected God in favor of the solutions of man and the cares of this world will receive it, even people who spent all their lives in church!

It is all in the Bible, and yet people still work for open borders and pine for the unity of humanity, “the new man” (not to be confused with the excellent “new CHRISTIAN man” ministry of Messianic Jewish evangelist Sid Roth, although I wish Mr. Roth would use different terminology). Of course, these people who so desire world unity and peace at all costs – even if it means the destruction of the state of Israel, the scattering of his people, and God’s Holy City Jerusalem falling back into the hands of the heathen who hate Christians, Jews, and even Muslims who truly love God (yes they do exist, and they will have a chance at salvation!) – have either not read the Bible or cared not to understand it when they did. For if they read or understood the Bible, they would know the truth: that God Himself opposes the unification of mankind, and indeed it was He who scattered mankind. When and why? Recall Genesis Chapter 11, the Tower of Babel. That will be the subject of the next devotional. But for now, if you are not saved, please recite The Salvation Prayer. There is some debate within the Christian community whether those who are saved will still be here when the beast comes to power, or whether the rapture will take place first. I will not take a stance on that, but I do know that if you are saved through Christ, if the rapture comes before the beast you will be fine, and if it does not you will not be affected by the beast and the false prophet unleashing mental illness on the globe – a mass outbreak of madness – and follow the beast unconditionally as a result of said madness. Do not be deceived by those who peddle the notion that we will ever achieve unity, peace, and the elimination of poverty, and that does include not a few “Christians.” Christ Himself said that the poor would always be with us, and that there were going to be wars, rumors of wars, diseases, and so forth but to be not dismayed for our hope should not be in this world but in the world to come, and that He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life through whom we would pass from death in this world and the next to life in both. The mad notion of global prosperity, unity, and peace not only directly contradicts the Bible, but it is nothing compared to the global outbreak of insanity that the beast and the false prophet are going to unleash on the world in what I believe will be in a time not too far in the future. Regardless of when it happens or whether you will be here to see it, just know that salvation through Christ is the only way, and the works of man are futile, corrupt, and doomed to failure. So join with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and start reigning forever with him today!

Prayer:Father God in the name of Christ Jesus, please keep me from being deceived by false prophets and teachers spreading lies that are against Your Word. May I know that Your Word is true and may I live Your Word, spread Your Word, and defend Your Word. May I reject the notion that man has the power to do anything possible in this world save it be at your direction and will, and may I not join myself to or follow those who have put their faith and trust in the works and power of man. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Deliverance:The demons that work in this area are disorder and disrespect. Please read the Basic Spiritual Warfare guide to learn more about how to go against these demons to help set captives free and win battles in the name of your God through the power, authority, and victory given to you by his Son Jesus Christ and by his blood shed for you!
