Genesis 11:4 “4 And they said: 'Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
I find this story in Genesis fascinating because in many respects this is where the world once again is headed. I became painfully aware recently of two documents that I was researching and found that they were similar in nature. One document was the Democratic platform statement and the other was the 2030 Agenda for the United Nations. In both cases the ideals centered on justice, compassion, and equality for all people on earth. Here check it out for yourself.
The DNC Platform
The United Nations 2030 Agenda
The idea behind both is gaining the power to transform America and then the world. Building the tower of Babel was symbolic of man’s ability to be his or her own god to reach a level of achievement that secures one’s own destiny. The mission statement of those earlier tower builders was: "There is no other god other than what man can achieve and therefore controlling the power to control the world through collaboration will create a new world order." Nothing much has changed since those early progressives started to build. Today's progressives have the same agenda and mindset.
Who would stand against such things as eliminating poverty, securing justice for all people regardless of race or circumstances, and giving each person the opportunity to have equal access to education, health care, and governmental representation? This would be an ideal world if all those things were to take place in all four corners of the earth. The problem with all of this is, there is no reference to God. Nothing is said about this being God’s world, and God’s creation?
Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.”
So the agenda is for man’s abilities to rule over this world and not God. God and the concept of God is nowhere to be seen through the Democratic Platform and the UN’s 2030 Agenda. If there is ever something to fear, it is this mindset of building a tower of praise (symbolically) for the achievements and the ability of man. This will change the fabric of nations, cultures, and be the groundwork for a one-world government. The Bible tells us that there will be another great empire on earth, similar to the ancient Roman Empire that will conquer all people and all lands. The only way for that to happen is that people have to buy into the idea that government is the only source that can effectively protect us, give us proper health care, and give us equal access to education and resources to stay out of poverty. This is a simple formula to achieve a new world order but as you can see as you compare the two documents in the links provided, it is the mindset of both the Democratic platform and the UN 2030 Agenda. It is quite common, and getting to be the norm, that there is never a mention of God in the translation of these platforms. Why? Because God has become an irrelevant topic in today’s discussion about government and it’s too explosive of a theme. So God is out, and achievement is in. “Making America Great Again” is another more conservative phrase to inspire people to become hopeful again about the future of this country. However, greatness comes from the recognition of God through repentance and obedience to a holy God.
I would say that God is not to be mocked, and there will come a day of reconciling the books of history. God will make all balance sheets of injustice, inequity, and poverty all come to a final liquidation on judgment day. There will be a judgment day, and all nations and people will be judged according to what they did with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the meantime, citizenship by the standards of the gospel will bring prosperity of heart to any nation because it teaches us to do what is right. Lying, greed, cheating, immorality, anger, injustice, inequity, racism, and all the other human shortcomings will all be wiped away and all things will be made brand new. Judgment day will elevate Jesus Christ as the sole proprietor of the whole earth. There will be no more capitalism, no more socialism, no more communism, no more dictatorships, no more Islam, no more anything other than Jesus Christ! He will judge, rule, and restore this world to the order from which it was created. There is no mention of this scenario in any political or social agenda. Why? Because the agenda’s in this world are not based upon truth, but on what is best for those who have the power.
Remind your preacher of these things, and have a discussion with your family around the agenda of this world and contrast it with the agenda of what God lays out in His Word.
God had the last say at the tower of Babel, and He will once again have the last say about this new tower currently being built in our day.
