When men a few generations removed from the Great Flood sought to build a tower that would reach to Heaven–the story is told in Genesis 11–God came down and confounded their language. Unable to communicate with each other, they gave up their building project and dispersed throughout the earth, eventually growing into various nations, each with its own language.
We are in the habit of viewing God’s actions toward the builders of Babel as a judgment and a punishment. A judgment it certainly was; but I’ve come to think of it not as a punishment, but as a mercy devised by His wisdom.
Take into account man’s inherent sinfulness, his natural bent for folly, and his high opinion of himself–and then factor in God allowing the Tower to be built and not confounding their language. I mean, really, they hadn’t learned their lesson from the Flood, and God had promised not to wipe them out again–but what if He had let them alone?
What could be more dreadful, than for God to leave us to our own devices?
Since the start of history, conquerors have tried to be masters of the world, creating bigger and bigger empires as their means for mischief grew. Today this has evolved into Globalism: all that “citizen of the world” claptrap from the 1930s is alive and well today. And doing as much harm as it possibly can.
The motive remains the same: domination of others. From Alexander the Great to the cocktail crowd at Davos is only a difference in methodology. Alexander had the Macedonian phalanx to crush nations under his feet. Globalists have Climate Change, and the “news” media.
Imagine how much easier this satanic scheme would be to carry out, had God not scattered the human race at Babel. Imagine how instantaneously culture rot could set in, anywhere in the world, if we were all of one language.
What God did at Babel was a way of protecting us from those of our race who would devour us. There is no doubt in my mind that among Satan’s fondest dreams is world government, over which he would rule as prince–probably behind the scenes: he likes it in the dark. And world government would devour us.
Alexander, Caesar, communism, Nazism, the United Nations, this foundation, that foundation–they were all about world government, and that’s what they’re all about today. That’s what “open borders” is: an attempt to undo what God did on the plain of Shinar, thousands of years ago.
A few of you keep telling me that the purpose of all the abominable lunacies of this era is to force us to declare who’s side we’re on, God’s or the devil’s.
I’m beginning to think you’re right.
