God Calls Us Out Of Babylon





God Calls Us Out of Babylon

    In the biblical account of the Tower Of Babel the world decided to leave God out.  They left God out of their decision making.  They didn't want to follow God they had a different plan.  The story doesn't have to do with anyone trying to please God with their lives.  It doesn't have to do with someone giving it their best and trying to be their  best for Christ's sake.  It doesn't have to do with someone trying to reach the world for Christ even though people who do that often get noticed.  Sometimes when we are faithful to God our little lunches turn into something huge.  Just like the little boy who gave willingly, his whole lunch, God blessed it and it fed thousands and not to mention 12 baskets of leftovers.  God sometimes blesses us with more that we may do more for Him.  Just because something is big it doesn't mean it's a Tower of Babel. 
   The Tower of Babel -Babel= ( The Gate Of The God's) is a symbol of pride, arrogance and rebellion.   Nimrod (We Shall Rebel) became a mighty man (Huge Man) and became a powerful leader of  a rebellious people.   Nimrod was satanically motivated usurped the authority of Shem and refused the God of Noah.  He gathered people to himself and eventually settled in the land of Shinar where they worshipped false gods.
      A group of engineers came together to build a tower that would reach the heavens in rebellion to the things of God.  They dedicated their lives to the study of the stars.   Nimrod desired to rule the known world and did.  He desired to make a one world government.     People once again provoked God to anger by ignoring Him and ignoring His commands.  The people  unified their efforts, as a group,  against the perfect plan of God.  God wanted them to spread  throughout the whole world and multiply and make nations but  they stayed together and grew to be very numerous.  They chose to forget God and live their lives their own way.  You would think the world would of remembered Noah and how the whole world was destroyed by water because of sin.  They started to build this tower and God himself came down to see what they had built. 
     At that time the world all spoke one language and the rebellious multiplied and settled in land of Shinar and if left to their own would have after a time become all powerful over the whole world.  God refused to let this rebellion happen.  He was angered and His heart was grieved.   He scrambled their language into many languages.   They became confused and gathered together by language and departed to settle into another place.

God was looking for someone who is obedient.  God calls us out of Babylon.  Abraham became great because God made him great,  but Nimrod desired to make himself great.   Nimrod wanted to do what He wanted to do.  Nimrod refused the things of God and served something other than God.  God calls each person out of Babylon and into a life of obedience and faith to God.    The question is have we had the spirit of rebellion towards God?   God's desire is to bless those who receive Him by faith and who live an obedient life to His ways.  God does not want us to love anything more than we love Him.  Babylon is the place you are when you are rebellious to God.  God calls each one out of Babylon.

Will you submit to the things of God today?  Please don't harden your heart, I promise you that God wants to bless you.  He wants you to humble yourself and turn from babylon.  He wants you to submit to his authority in your life.  Be respectful do not usurp the authority of your parents as Nemrod did Shem, who loved the Lord.  In doing this you are obedient to God.
He wants you to trust Him as your personal Saviour. Make Him the #1 choice for your life.  Christ died for your sins and upon trusting Him forgiveness is applied through what He did for you at the cross.  There is no greater blessing than the blessing of salvation.  Trust in the Lord today.

Father God,
If there's anyone here that has chosen to rebel against you. I pray that you will soften there hearts today. I pray that they will want your blessing on there life and future.  I pray you would help them to understand how much you love them.  Open their eyes to your truth today.  In Jesus name I pray this, Amen.

Genesis  11:4-9
 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
