The Tower of Babel
By David J. Stewart
“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.” —Genesis 11:8
The Tower of Babel has been a favorite of Sunday School stories for centuries, but there are some truths concerning the Tower of Babel that you probably didn't know.
Did you know that the Bible says the people back then were also building a city? Genesis 11:5, “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.” That is very interesting.
The Bible tells us Why they were building a city a tower in Genesis 11:4, “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 11:6 gives us further details, shedding light on the evil nature of their intentions, “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.” It is clear to me from the implication in this Scripture, that humanity was once again deteriorating back into the degenerate condition prior to the flood of Genesis Chapter 6. Why else would God be concerned that men would not be restrained in their imaginations? Genesis 6:5, “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every IMAGINATION of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” And now here again in Genesis 11:6 we read the same word again, “IMAGINED,” and see that God didn't like what He saw in the hearts of men.
The Bible says that God confounded the “children of men” (the youth, Verse 5) who had purposed in their hearts to unite together in rebellion against God. No doubt, Satan, the god of this sinful world (2nd Corinthians 4:4), was the spiritual driving force behind the building of the tower and city of Babel. God stopped them in their tracks, and the tower and city were never completed.
It is fascinating to learn that The Great Pyramid of Egypt was deliberately left unfinished, estimated to have been built between 2,000BC and 2,500 BC in Egypt. Could it be that the people at Babel who were scattered to Egypt decided to build their own tower, in honor of what they were trying to do at Babel, but could not finish it because all men were no longer of one language and one speech? If it were not for the Jewish slaves in Egypt, there would have been no pyramids and city of Raamses (which still exist today). The Jews were enslaved for 4 centuries in Egyptian bondage.
It is speculation, but I think nonetheless very probable, that The Great Pyramid was built in honor of Babel; and moreover, as a symbol of the New World Order which Satan has been wanting to build ever since the beginning of humanity, the Beast system, by which the coming Antichrist will rule the world in darkness. The Great Pyramid has no capstone (top stone) because it was never put into place. On the back of every U.S. one-dollar bill is the Masonic pyramid, which is also The Great Pyramid of Egypt. Why do Freemasons today idolize Egyptian culture and The Great Pyramid? Notice carefully that the capstone is separated from the base of the pyramid on the back of the U.S. one-dollar bill. I believe this clearly signifies the unfinished tower and city of Babel. Surely this cannot all be coincidence.
The goal of the occult builders of the New World Order is to achieve World Government over the masses of humanity, enslaving the human race in submission, to prepare them to worship the image of the coming Antichrist or be killed for refusing (Revelation 13:15). We see universal rebellion in the world today 4,500 years after Babel. The world's religions are merging into a Luciferian religion that worships the light instead of Jesus Christ. We are increasingly hearing talk in the world's churches of experiences and feelings instead of truth and righteousness. The Luciferian religion of the Antichrist will be based upon experiences and feelings; not upon the absolute truth of God's Word.
Whereas God confounded humanity's languages, geographical locations, and I believe racial characteristics at Babel; Satan today is breaking down these God-ordained barriers, promoting UNITY at all cost, even at the expense of Biblical doctrine, true Christian faith, and Biblical separation. God wants us to DIVIDE over truth; not UNITE by error. We hear nothing but talk about UNITY from contemporary Christian singers, apostate ministers, and neo-evangelicals. They care not about souls saved, the Doctrine of Christ, nor righteousness; all they care about is fame, fortune, and worldly prosperity.
The tower and city of Babel are being built again today.
Genesis 11:7-9, “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. 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.”
God knew that the world would eventually come together in the End Times in rebellion against God. The world is becoming so evil and wicked today. 1st John 5:19 tells us that the “world lieth in wickedness,” but technology has allowed humanity to stoop to unprecedented levels of wickedness—watching violence and sexual immorality on their TV screens, downloading pornography to their cellphones, listening to demonic freaks like Marilyn Manson and sleazy whores like Katy Perry, committing all forms of wickedness over the internet, and so forth. The evil in the world today is as never before! Surely the Lord's return cannot be far away?
The tower and city of Babel were never completed. Satan failed to achieve his goals in Genesis Chapter 6; Satan failed to achieve his goals in Genesis Chapter 11; but Satan will succeed in bringing the world to its knees in worship of the Antichrist when he appears. Even now, the masses of humanity are worshipping and idolizing their favorite music celebrities, praying to graven statues, and sacrificing their babies on the abortionist's alter of self.
If 42,000,000 Americans (68,000,000 worldwide) will purchase ACDC's BACK IN BLACK album, featuring the hit song HIGHWAY TO HELL; then they will follow the Antichrist when he comes. If 11,000,000 American's will purchase Marilyn Manson's vile albums, then they will certainly worship the man of sin when he appears. If one billion Catholics will bow to statues and pray to them, and bow to the Pope in praise; then they'll bow to the Antichrist when he comes, who will be much more popular than the Pope.
When Barack Obama became U.S. President in 2009, groups of children sang aloud, BLESSED BE OBAMA. Communists waved their flags in joy. Americans bowed and gave praise so much that Mr. Obama said publicly, “Contrary to what you may have heard, I wasn't born in a manger.” And now Americans have been asking where Barack Obama was actually born ever since.
The Antichrist is coming. The big question is: Are you prepared for the Rapture? Are you saved? Have you been born-again? That is all that truly matters my friend. If you won't get saved now, then you won't get saved after the Rapture I assure you. All the proof you need of God is right outside your front door (Romans 1:20; Psalm 19:1-3). If your heart is full of the sin of unbelief, then you're not going to believe on Christ no matter what.
Romans 10:10 says that salvation is of the heart. Many people draw nigh unto God with their mouth (Matthew 15:8); but salvation only comes to those who obey God's will, which is to BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD. Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 5:15; 6:23), paid for by Jesus' literal, precious, blood (1st Peter 1:18-19). Salvation is receiving, not giving. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Won't you believe on Christ crucified, buried, and risen for your sins my friend? The choice is yours alone to make. Heaven or Hell hangs in the balance. It's one or the other.
