Across the earth and around the world there is coming forth a certain distinct sound. This sound, when heard, is a sound that is continually calling forth a need for change, a change spoken of that concerns every level of society. This is especially speaking of a couple of changes that are being promoted by the worldwide politic and should be a major concern as to the populace. These two changes speak of a desire to franchise and market the areas of language and economics. This world-wide promotional campaign is one with an hidden agenda which seeks to bring all of mankind into a one-world government, a government that will bring all peoples under the prison house of being controlled by that enterprise scripture calls the Babylonian system, with the Anti-Christ spirit placed as its supreme ruler.
This Anti-Christ system is one birthed into the earth back in the book of Genesis and continued as God cursed Ham, a son of Noah, because of his unclean actions. This curse continued through Ham’s son who was the father of Canaan, who became the Canaanites who have resisted and fought against God’s people throughout every generation. The Anti-Christ fruit began to show up again, with the erecting of the tower of Babel in the land of Shinar wherein God observed and declared, “This people with one language are but the first step in total rebellion against me.” In this, God knew that corrupted man would now stop at nothing in this curse of rebellion, so He came forth to confuse their speech, their language, and then scattered them all over the earth. Gen. 11:6-9, “And the Lord said, indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be with-held from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth and they ceased building the city [speaking of a way-of-life without dependency upon God]. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.”
In confusing their language, a setback takes place that has hindered the world’s systems from becoming its desired one world order. However, the desire and spirit of Babel has never ceased nor changed in its purpose. With perseverance, it continues to push against God’s will and purpose throughout the generations of time until today, the time in which we now live. During this time, our time, success shall finally arrive as the spirit of Babel becomes that one world government it has desired to become. However, we can rest assured; this degree of success shall be short-lived. Why, because Jesus Christ has come, He has gained total victory over every principality and power, over death, hell and the grave, to become the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
When God promised Abram a land in which to dwell, who was it that occupied that land? Was it not the Canaanites and like kind other nations? Knowing that God’s purpose, beginning with Abram was to destroy the occupying cursed people who occupied the land called Canaan. A land God promised to Abram, as God began to give instructions. Remember God’s promise, Gen. 12:2-3, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Throughout the many following generations this promise has never ceased in purpose nor been replaced. The curse that has continued during this same time frame has likewise continued, but know this, the promises of God to Abraham has now been given to all believers. In Christ Jesus, He became the curse for us that we might now receive the blessings of Abraham. Its beginning starts with our being born from above, becoming a new creation in Christ. This blessing includes, for us, a prospering spiritually, emotionally, physically and materially. Gal. 3:13-14 declares, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, cursed is everyone who hangs on the tree), that the blessings of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”. Also Gal. 3:29, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Thus, we Christians of today have this promise, a people shall come forth, and a generation shall know and see Christ even as He is. Even though Babel still exist in the earth, even though it’s fruit of a one world government and religion shall appear and manifest, it’s seemingly success is but short lived, only until the purpose of God’s declaration shall be achieved. Rev. 11:15, “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever”.
Again, in considering Abraham, we should take note and see that likened unto the family of Abraham, the church, the family of God has gone down to Egypt [the house of darkness, the influence of the carnal mind] because of a like-kind existing famine. This is not a famine for natural food but a famine of understanding God’s word in the form of receiving a spiritual revelation; this lack of true revelation is now in the land (which is His people), the land that God has promised. The Christian Community, during the process of its intended growth finds themselves in a like-kind famine, a famine as God has declared it. Amos 8:11, “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord God, that I shall send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord”. We should not think it strange that many times, over the ages, when God desires to change the order of life in a people He uses a famine to get their attention. Remember Samuel, God’s chosen one to lead Israel out of a sick and darkened society back to the light of God’s government. 1 Sam. 3:1, “Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.”
Looking back to Abraham and his wife Sarah, with her being a type of the church, we see them going down to Egypt because of said famine. With Egypt, ruled over by Pharaoh, being a type of a “black narrow place of darkness – carnality,” this represents a place without any light. While in this land, Pharaoh takes Sarah into his house to become his wife, a wife, or church of carnality. In this order of transition, with his wife taken from him, Abraham seemingly did well and became a possessor of wealth, as seen in the eyes of the darken world of Egypt. Has not the Christian Community responded in a like manner as Abraham? The church knows a famine concerning a true understanding of God’s word, becoming a people without a pure revelation. In this condition the Christian Community, for the most part, has incorporated the order of Egypt (carnality) into their doctrines and understandings. Ministries are willing to forsake the wife, God’s ways concerning the true church, for selfish gain and self-preservation of each one’s existence. They do not want to see their old carnal doctrines and traditions pass away, they seek out the doctrines of carnality in becoming a system consisting of lukewarmness, an order without true life, one that God declares He will vomit out. Rev. 3:15-17, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing, and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked” (read Gen. 12:10-20). These existing conditions inspire the question asked by many, “where do we go from here.”
Growth, continual increase in the spiritual things of God will continue to reveal the fallacies and weaknesses in the character of creation as revealed through the fallen man as he continues to live under the curse. With Abraham in obedience, moving out from the order of a former family way of life, he pursues the ways of God in the establishing of the promises made by God according to God’s purpose. Next, we behold the Abraham family and how it affects the growing processes of God. In observing the people as we behold them in society today and the Christian Community in general, where is their spiritual growth. Lot, the son of Abraham’s brother, though dwelling with Abraham for a time found it necessary to finally separate from Abraham. Lot, without true spiritual understanding within himself, was given the right to choose, and he chose to depart to the plains of Jordan, the dwelling places of sinful and wicked men, the same choice carnal minded men are making today as it affects the Christian Community. Gen. 13:13, “But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord.” In the Christian Community of today, there is a like-kind need for a separating to take place. In its present condition, the church of our day is finding out that the world’s view of the church is one of having form and ceremony without any power for change. This truth is an order that manifest from the church because of their existing stubbornness and rebellion.
Why, could it be that much of today’s ministry and the Christian populace has largely refused to expose and deal with the fleshly desires of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. So God Himself purposes to bring forth a like-kind separation. This separation is because the value system of the lustful, prideful flesh man is the motivating force of the Lots of this world, as they continually choose the ways of the plains of Jordan. While living in the plains they are allowing themselves to compromise with the likes of Sodom [naturally and spiritually] to maintain their sense of success. In responding to the curse of Babel, this portion of the Christian Community is willing to accept the mindset of wicked evil promoters under the guise of being Abraham’s kin. What evil is among church doctrine in many standing church orders today? Are they, individually and collectively, accepting the doctrine of alternate life-styles, same-sex marriage and abortion, perverted doctrines promoting wealth and status symbols that war against the true order of God? In this, God is not pleased so judgment comes for purifying the earth of this corrupt sinful, evil system called carnal religion or Babel.
To follow this train of thought, we observe Lot’s salvation from a place of destruction. He and his two daughter’s are allowed to flee from this time of judgment, but their escape from judgment only last for a season. Gen. 19:29, “And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt”. In departing from Sodom (because of Abraham), Lot chose to flee to a place called “Zoar,” a name that means “little.” When it comes to the things of the spiritual realms of God, Lot and his order of life always flees into those places wherein spiritual maturity is none existent, places where spiritual laws have little or no affect upon carnal life-styles because of compromise. While people are desirous for change, they also desire to stay in their comfort zones of fleshly living. We should also take note that the fruits manifested from such ways of life promote a degree of incest in bringing forth offspring after its own kind. In this place of dwelling (little), Lot drunken in a deep-sleeping stupor (lack of spiritual insight) engages in incest with his own daughters. It is through the daughters that two nations (orders of life) come, birthed to become the enemies of the children of Israel (and the church) in their arriving and beginning to take the land promised to Abraham’s offspring.
(Read Gen 19:30-38). Note the names of these nations, first, the eldest daughter bore a son named “Moab” meaning “through her father”, a nation which was responsible for the most carnal seduction in Israel’s history. Second, the youngest daughter bares a son named “Ben-Ammi” which means “son of my kin.” This nation, called Ammon, became responsible for the influence of human sacrifice to the idol-god Molech (politically promotes abortion and robs God’s people of true life, etc.). These two nations also became a part of the nations, which continually warred against Israel, and they continue to exist today as a part of Babel, the curse in the earth, as it has found a place among the Christian Community. Note in Nehemiah 13:23-24 & 27, “In those days also saw I Jews that had married woman of Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab: And half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod [stronghold, fortress] and could not speak the language of Judah, but spoke according to the language of one or the other people. … Shall we then hear of your doing all this great evil, transgressing against our God by marrying pagan women?” People are lacking in discernment and understanding concerning error when considering the condition of the Christian Community of today. Marriages have taken place that has incorporated into church doctrine the stronghold of carnal interpretations of God’s word as they compromise with the world around them. Lets consider the church of Pergamos (read Rev. 2:12-17), a church which tolerated immorality, idolatry and heresies (remember Balaam). Also note the church of Thyatira (read Rev. 2:18-29), an order which tolerated the cult of idolatry (remember Jezebel) and immorality. Where do we go from here?
It would do well for the Christian Community to remember the promise of judgment, a judgment whose purpose is to purify the church, the bride of Christ, in making herself ready as the bridegroom cometh. God shall appear through the Christ and His body, the many sons, as they come forth with the sword of God in their mouth, the released word of God. Judgment begins in the house of God to remove all the languages of false doctrine and traditions as God restores truth back to the earth, through His people in a pure language. Zephaniah 3:9, “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language that they all may call on the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one accord.” This is a language spoken forth with the authority of heaven that dwells within the hearts of a pure people whose nature (soul) has been changed to manifest the nature of God, His will, His mind, His emotions and His desires. Where do we go from here? This people now know they must go to God and Him alone, a people who entertain God alone and become a contrite and humble people before Him. Again, where do we go from here? This people submit to the nature of God and manifest through His love. This people, are sanctified by the pure word of God that washes them daily. Eph. 5:26-27, “That He might sanctify and cleanse her [church] with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish”.
Again, where do we go from here? Judgment is now at the door and Babel is falling for good. Rev. 18:2, “And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” Look around, what do you see, a world contorting in agony because the curse has ran it’s course and destruction is now become her lot. The worlds system of confusion and perversions are now beginning to know their rightful judgment, for they are going to come down. Rev. 18:21, “Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea [carnality within the church], saying, thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore”. The end of the earth, has it come? Nay, only the end of a certain world has come. The world as we know it, is a corrupt evil system and that world is passing away to be replaced with a new world order called the Kingdom of God, eternal in its existence and pure in its character as the righteousness of God dwelling upon the earth. To answer the question, where do we go from here? Read Rev. 21:1-8 while noting the 1st and 8th verses. “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. … But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
