WE ARE ONE: GENESIS 11; ACTS 2
I may get some stones thrown at me for this interpretation of Genesis 11, but oh well, what’s new. Ok, so I was reading this chapter. The Bible says that AT ONE time in the beginning all the people of the world spoke the same language and used the same words. This tells me that at one time the people were ONE. Now growing up most believers have always told me that when the “new world order” comes that’s when the last days will come and satan will destroy everything. So, here is my point. In verses 5-9, it says “but the LORD came down to look at the city and the tower that the people were building. Look! He said, the people are united, they are ONE, they all speak the same language, and when they are like this, NOTHING will be impossible for them. Come on, let us go down there and confuse them with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other. In this way the Lord DIVIDED them all over the earth. This is why it’s called Babel because the Lord put confusion in the people’s minds.”
I believe this story needs Jesus. When we look at Jesus and what He has shown us in the New Testament, WHO is the one who divides? WHO is the one who confuses? I mean, are not ALL things possible when we are ONE with God? Jesus said “a house divided CAN NOT stand”
Jesus commanded in prayer that WE ALL be ONE (Jn 17)
Since the Old Testament writers did not have a clear meaning of how God operated. And because they thought that God and satan worked together, I TRULY BELIEVE that verses 5-11 should ACTUALLY say this:
But SATAN came down and saw the people building a nation, a ONE world nation with GOD. They are ALL united living as ONE speaking the same language. ALL things are possible for them! Come on angels, let us go down there and confuse them. Let us destroy them because when they are ONE, then that means I, satan, can no longer attack or harm them.
We NEED to understand that we are ONE people. In Acts when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the people they began understanding ONE language again. It’s a great awakening. Healings occurred. I truly believe this is happening NOW. Acts 2:18- God says “in the last days I will pour out my Spirit on ALL people. I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on Earth below. The sun will become dark and THE MOON WILL TURN BLOOD RED.”
This is good news folks. WE ARE ONE! We are waking up. No more dividing. God is restoring US ALL. All over the world. No more ‘us vs them’
