World History - Nimrod to the Anti Christ

Just a little over a century after the catastrophic judgment on Cain’s delusional and godless system by means of the Noahic flood, another godless system emerged on the face of the earth (Gen. 11:1-9). The descendants of Noah began to migrate from mount Ararat region and found the plains of Shinar in the Euphrates and Tigris region to build another city. The ruler and "Satan's choice vessel" to rule over the inhabitants" of this city with his godless system was Nimrod (Gen. 10:8-10). This man (Nimrod) had fully given himself over to a godless existence and sought to eradicate Almighty God from from the hearts and minds of Noah's descendants,  thus opening himself up to Lucifer's godless agenda and rebellion. Babel, however, was like none other city built before it. The builders of this city sought not only to set up another delusional, godless system, but they introduced an “alternative creator” or substitute deity (“an abomination”) in the place of Almighty God (Rev. 17:2, 5).


From this Divine judgment and dispersion the nations were born.

When the triune Godhead saw what was transpiring in the plains of Shinar (i.e., the city of Babel), in His grace and mercy He changed their common language to many different languages (tongues), creating a situation where people divided into various clans and tribes. Babel’s inhabitants were then scattered across the face of the earth (Gen. 10; 11:9). This event forestalled the result of a one-world godless state and postponed God’s judgment on this delusional system until a much later time in the future (Rev. 17:1-5; 18:3-5; 19:2). From this Divine judgment and dispersion the nations were born (Gen. 10).

The Nations of the Earth were:

- Conceived in a concerted, godless rebellion (Gen 11:1-9, Rev. 17:5, Acts 17:26).

- Born (brought forth) in divine judgment (Gen 10, 11:1-9, Rev 17:5, Acts 17:26).

- Reared (raised) in godless unbelief and ignorance (Acts 17:26 -30, Rom 1:18-32, Eph. 2:1-3,11,4:17).


.
Note: Only a small remnant of all the nations - from Babel to the end of the age - will place their their faith and trust in Almighty God for salvation (Matt. 8:11, 25: 31-40, Luke 13:29, Rev. 7:13-17; 14, Isa. 60:1-3, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 8:21-23, John 3:1:17, Rev. 21:22-27, 22:2). These (i.e., the saved of the nations) are the ones whom God foreknew while He spared the inhabitants of Babel from total destruction. In His grace and mercy He chose rather to "babble" their languages and scatter them throughout the world then a total eradicating judgment (note the commandment of Almighty God in Gen. 9:1) - Zech. 14:16; Matt. 25:31-34; Rev. 14:9-14; 21:24.
.
As the rebellious inhabitants of Babel were scattered across the face of the earth,they took with them the godless, “alternative reality” and philosophy of the city of Babel (Rev. 17:1-5). As time passed, the nations became immersed and cemented in their godless cultures and philosophies, and they have reaped the horrific consequences of their godless practices unto this day (Acts 17:29-31, Rom. 1:18-32).

    This 'Babelology' of a godless politico-religious ideology and philosophy still dominates our world today....
Since Babel’s judgment some forty-two hundred years ago, people in the world today have been living in the aftermath of the “Babylonian unbelief and apostasy.” This "Babelology” of politico-religious ideology and philosophy still dominates our world today, and it has truly hampered Lucifer’s tyrannical designs for global worship and creation of a global fascist state under his sole, sovereign thumb (Rev. 14:8; 17:16-17; 18:2). Even now, events are transpiring that will soon make Satan’s grand and diabolical design a reality (2 Thess. 2:7; 1 John 4:3).

The Final Delusion of Desolation - 666

With the ongoing, exponential advancements in technology and media today, the language/ culture/ geography barriers that are restraining the global unification necessary for Lucifer’s godless, global state are eroding right before our very eyes. Global unification and a New World Order is not just a delusional “pipe dream” anymore - it is fast becoming a REALITY. We are at the very doorstep of Satan’s global, fascist state ruled by his lawless minion, the Anti-Christ (Dan. 2:41-43; 7:8, 19-21, 25; 2 Thess. 2:3-12; Rev. 13).

It is a fact of history that as societies, cultures and nations become more base (degenerate) and hardened against the living God, they become increasingly vulnerable to godless and demonic (evil) influences.

It is a fact of history that as societies, cultures and nations become more base (degenerate) and hardened against the living God, they become increasingly vulnerable to godless and demonic (evil) influences. (Luke 4:5-6; Eph. 2:1-2; 6:12; 1 Tim. 4:1-2; Rev. 16:13-16). This trend is a driving force that is setting the stage even now for the world’s final showdown against Almighty God, His sovereign authority and ETERNAL reign on earth and in heaven. This final showdown is called the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm 2; Dan. 2:43-44; Joel 3:2; Zech. 14:2; Rev. 16:13-16). Once the Rapture of the Church takes place, Almighty God’s restraint will be removed (2 Thess. 2:3, 6-8). The dam - as it were - will be removed and the godless, base practices and the unbridled passions of man will be unleashed to flood the world with godlessness and lawlessness. As these awesomely turbulent times of global calamities come to pass, the world will look for a scapegoat. Feelings of anti-Semitism and hatred for Israel will intensify as never before (Matt. 24:12; Rev. 12:17).

As the Anti-Christ rises to power, he will seek to exalt himself over all and will accomplish his despotic goal (2 Thess. 2:2-4). He will use the massive devastation, the fallout from global wars and natural disasters inflicted on this earth by Almighty God to seize unlimited power and authority over all the earth (Rev. 13). The Beast (Anti-Christ) will seek to change the times and the seasons (Dan 7:25). He will seek to rewrite Almighty God’s ETERNAL spiritual and natural laws of creation, and enact his own secular, godless agenda upon the masses of humanity. He will lead a global assault on Almighty God, decimate all ideologies tending toward truth, and eradicate the followers of Christ/ Messiah (God’s lovers of reality and truth) - Rev. 13:7; 17:12-17; Rom. 8:36.


This has always been Lucifer's agenda since the Garden of Eden. His desire has been to go "back to Babel" and insert his demonic minion and to rule over the physical and spiritual world.


The Anti-Christ will dissolve all nations and all national identity (cultural and social) and impose on the world his mark, his idol-image and his will. In so doing he will cause ALL to worship both himself and his “father,” a.k.a. “Lucifer, the son of the morning” (Isa. 14:12); “that old serpent” (Rev. 12:9; Gen. 3:1-4); “a great red dragon” (Rev. 12:3-4); and “the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world” (Rev. 12:9). In this, his mad attempt, Anti-Christ will ULTIMATELY SUCCEED! (2 Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13:4, 8, 12, 16-18). This has always been Lucifer's agenda since the Garden of Eden. His desire has been to go "back to Babel" and insert his demonic minion and to rule over the physical and spiritual world (Isa. 14:12-15).

Anti-Christ will impose on the world his mark, his idol-image and his will. In so doing he will cause all to worship both himself and his 'father,' a.k.a. Lucifer....

This vile act will indeed constitute a great insanity. The whole world will reject their Creator to follow and worship this lawless one (Satan’s Anti-Christ) with great passion and zeal (Rev. 13:3, 8; 17:16, 17). They will do so with the veritable understanding that they are fully rejecting Almighty God and His saving grace for their lost souls (2 Thess. 2:10-12; Rev. 14:9-11). These doomed "Haters of Reality" will be quite willing to follow their delusion through to the end. They will be thus damned for all ETERNITY in Almighty God’s prison and “junk yard” called the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:14-15). This fate would they choose rather than to repent and honor their Creator and Savior (2 Thess. 2:10-12; Rev. 9:20-21). This “Abomination of abominations”, which the world of that day will choose to worship, only brings these Haters of Reality to an absolute and ETERNAL desolation (Dan. 9:27; Matt 24:15, Rev. 14:9-11).

In the end - for a human being marred by Adam's fall - it is absolutely hopeless without Almighty God our Creator's saving solution.


6000 years of human history has overwhelmingly demonstrated that when Almighty God and His moral absolutes are left out of the mankind's "godless" equation: death, destruction, tyranny, violence, vice, greed, lawlessness, licentiousness, oppression etc. will reign supreme and knowingly or unknowingly they will be under the tyrannical domain of Lucifer and his fallen angels (Luke 4:6-7, Rom. 1:18-32, 5:12-21, Gal. 5:19-21, Eph. 2:1-2). In the end - for a human being marred by Adam's fall - it is absolutely hopeless without Almighty God our Creator's saving solution which is ONLY found in His Son Jesus Christ. He ALONE is the sole propitiation for ALL humanity (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Rom. 5:12-21, 1 John 2:2).

My friend, if you know not the Savior, may you pray to see the ETERNAL picture and understand your desperate need for redemption and deliverance from your transgressions against your Creator. As these days intensify and enter into the horrific seven year tribulation period which is at hand (Rom. 2:4, Rev. 6-19).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

do you believe that some languages are closer to the perfect, pre-Babel language?

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

PLC, I don't know what you mean by that, but before Babel in the pre flood world (Gen 1-6) there was only one language which was perfectly given to Adam from Almighty God His Creator in a pre- fallen world. (Gen. 1:31)

I've been reading some very interesting fiction books by Brian Godawa about this early history. They are fiction, but are meticulously researched in the Bible and related sources.

I read "Gilgamesh Immortal" a month or two ago (http://www.amazon.com/Gilgamesh-Immortal-Chronicles-Nephilim-Book/dp/0985930942/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_y) and am now reading "Abraham Allegiant" (http://www.amazon.com/Abraham-Allegiant-Chronicles-Nephilim-Volume/dp/0985930985). I'm about half way through "Abraham" and the division of languages just happened.

Godawa is a bit more descriptive of some of the activities of the pagan cultures than I prefer (I wouldn't recommend it for children), but the books really seem faithful to the Scriptures, filling in some additional literary details with Jewish theological sources as well as extra-Biblical ones (e.g. weaving the Epic of Gilgamesh into a Biblical framework).

Thanks Bob! I'll have to check those out!

God speed my bro!
