Rosh Chodesh XII 5934
The City of Wickedness and Its Tower
Shalom kol beit Yisra'el (all the House of Israel). I have struggled to discern Yah's Word for this Rosh Chodesh and did not yet it until an hour ago but basically He told me to go to the Tower of Babel account and take a close look at the Hebrew. He said, "Look for the word 'echad'". And then I saw a picture in my mind of multiple scenes where much psychic power had been released historically through people who were united in a single project. It happened in Nazi Germany where there was an extraordinary echad or oneness to build a city and a tower - literally, the German Nation for all Germans. That echad released an intoxicating spirit and set an engine in motion that was virtually unstoppable. The nation was united by one language, one leader and one culture, whose purpose was to create a New World Order with Germany as its leading nation. You only have to look at the newsreels from the time to see that the majority of the people were united and on fire. We all know where it led, of course.
"Come, let us build us an Ir (city), and a Migdal (tower) whose rosh (top, head) may reach unto Shomayim (the heavens); and let us make a shem (name) [for ourselves], otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of kol haAretz (the whole earth). And Yahweh came down to see the Ir and the Migdal which the Bnei haAdem (sons of Adam/man) had built. And Yahweh said, See, the Am" (people) is echad (one, united) and they have all one language; and this they began to do; and now nothing will be impossible for them which they have proposed to do" (Gen.11:4-6, OJB).
This phenomenon was nothing new. "There is nothing new under the sun" (Eccl.1:9, NKJV). Everything that you see going on around you in the affairs of man has been done before. The Communists tried it in Russia and China. The Nazis tried it in Germany. And the Eurocrats are trying it in the European Union today only the people are not really behind this EU project which is why it is as weak as an iron-clay mixture (Dan.2:33). And the inhabitants of the earth tried it in the land of Shinar thousands of years ago. Yahweh spelled out the danger of such a human undertaking where there is echad in idolatry and rebellion - He knew that once mankind synchronised mind and heart in a project (a pretty tough undertaking usually) that "nothing will be impossible for them which they have proposed to do". Yahweh had to intervene personally to stop the Shinar Project just as He will once again in the final New World Order of which the European Union is a stage in its planned construction with Sweden as its political rôle model.
In reading our passage several times in the Hebrew this morning I was struck by something I had not noticed before. Everyone has heard of the Tower of Babel - towers are pretty memorable things. Everyone has heard of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. But the inhabitants of Shinar weren't only building a Migdal or Tower but also an Ir or City. There were two projects under way - a city and at its centre a tower, both of which were a part of an echad purpose. Not only that, but somehow these people knew what they were doing. They knew that if they did not accomplish this project, that they would be "scattered abroad upon the face of kol haAretz (the whole earth)" which was for them very undesirable. Why? Why would they want to stay together? What was so important about that? When you think of the colonisation of America, there was this powerful urge to spread out, not stay bundled together in New England. Why these different drives? What was this "shem" or "name" the inhabitants were so keen to make? It's quite clear there is some bigger agenda behind this project and that it ran contrary to the natural inclination of man to spread out and settle new lands.
There are all kinds of myths about this era in human history. The Greek Apocalypse of Baruch, rabbinic literature and the Jewish Kaballah have their own versions. The latter, which is an occult system, proposes that the builders of the tower were transformed into demonic entities that inhabit parallel dimensions even though Genesis plainly says the people remained human and were simply scattered over the earth speaking different languages. Interestingly, Muslim historian Abu al-Fida has it that only Eber, the forefather of the Hebrews, was allowed to retain the original Syriac language amongst the 72 new ones created. Fascinating though these various myths are, they tend to obscure what really happened at Babel.
So what was the driving force of the inhabitants of Shinar? It was a pre-flood memory that was revitalised by demonic powers amongst those who were turning their backs on Yahweh's Way of Humility who preferred to make a name for themselves and become famous and powerful like the nefilim giants of old - the gibborim or "mighty men" who attained fame by their wicked deeds of lawlessness:
This word shem is a big word. It can be used of both good - someone with a noble shem like those mentioned in Isaiah 4:1 - and wickedness - of someone with an evil reputation, like the nefilim. The inhabitants of the plain of Shinar wished to repeat the works of the nefilim and get a shem for themselves. They wished to become "men of renown", powerful rulers, heroes in their own strength, to be remembered in legends, sagas and songs. They wanted to be 'great in their own eyes'. The amazing thing is that everyone was agreed on this. Yahweh speaks of there being no Noah representing a righteous remnant amongst these people. The good news (for man) was that Yahweh interrupted this project before it reached the stage it did under the nefilim that necessitated the erasure of mankind in a flood.
"These were the mighty men (gibborim) who were of old, men of SHEM (renown, authority, fame)" (Gen.6:4, NKJV)
We are not told if the fallen angels were involved again - it is not unlikely or impossible, we just don't know - but what seems fairly certain is that the driving demonic force was the same. And it has remained a constant driving force throughout history in the great conquests of Alexander the Great, the Mongols under Genghis Kahn, the Muslims, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Mao....and the more subtle version manifesting in the European Union today. Indeed, the European Union used the Tower of Babel to model its Parliament building in Straßburg (Strasbourg)! A polyglot Union of many languages is trying to reverse the process initiated by Yahweh at Babel. However, one thing is clear about the EU - the people are not echad - the EU is highly unpopular except amongst the élite who are milking it for their own financial gain and power for an ever greater worldwide project.
The inhabitants of Shinar set about not only building a tower but also a city to enthrone it. Towers are not built in the middle of the wilderness - they occupy the centre place of cities. The Post Office Tower of London, the East German Radio Tower in Berlin, the Eiffel Tower of Paris, the Petronius Towers of Kuala Lumpur, The Empire State Building in New York, and so on. Tower and city go hand-in-hand. Under demonic direction, all of these builders were, unknown to them, constructing a counterfeit of Yahweh's Own City, the New Jerusalem. This New Jerusalem, which becomes the capital of the planet when Yah'shua returns, also has a structure at its centre, but it is not a phallic symbol but a Temple:
The New Jerusalem is both a literal, physical structure that will one day occupy the place of the current Jerusalem in the Holy Land, that will descend from heaven - it is ready constructed extra-terrestrially. It is also a symbolic representation of the saved, each saved soul becoming a metaphorical pillar in that Temple. All attempts to build cities of this kind - whether it be Rome, Salt Lake City, Mecca or anywhere else - are counterfeit for man is not to build them! He is rather to spread out and settle the earth.
"He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My Elohim (God), and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name (Yahweh) of My Elohim (God) and the name of the city of My Elohim (God), the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My Elohim (God)" (Rev.3:12, NKJV).
"Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Elohim (God), prepared as a bride adorned for her husband" (Rev.21:1-2, NKJV).
The enemy is only able to concentrate power by concentrating people in cities where they are more readily controlled. That is why governments encourage the mirgration of people from the countryside to the cities and why they have gradually and progressively removed state facilities from the countryside. In the space of a few years my own village in Sweden has lost its post office, dental surgery, library, one of two shops, and medical facilities for all but the very old and very small children - people are expected to work and live in the cities.
Nimrod the antichrist was one of the first builders of cities where he was better able to control the populace he ruled. Babel was another such attempt. I have little doubt that the New World Order wants to see the countryside emptied save for a few slave farm workers running big state combines so that everyone is in the cities where they can be closely watched and controlled. So the City and Tower of Babel were just an old satanic plan which has continued down to our own day, a place where those who have the control, wealth and power can make a "name" for themselves. Unfortunately for them, their fate is the same as the original nefilim giants and the builders of Babel. Don't become a part of their project! That means get out and away save to witness to the lost, as the Ruach (Spirit) directs you. Amen.
Comments from Readers
"Brother, you know they didn't die out after WW2 and they existed a long time before then, exactly Nimrod. Like Tares have come to a new place again where no one would think without seeing them and they thought they had hidden so well where they have grown up in the wheat. Have paid attention to some things some have had to do and just amazing our great Kingdom and the love of our Father our salvation! Though now the tares have caused much of the wheat to become as moldy and desolate by their abominations (rotting in the barn as in Joel). Though allowed and given to the fullness because of the same things that caused Yisrael of old to have been taken captive and scattered. Now the fullness is arriving of the desolation of old for the rebellious going down that path of desolation having only Death and Destruction. And the fullness also of the restoration became as ten men going down that path where there is LIFE Yahushua in YHWH Echad Spirit AND Truth where the Author is At even In Us! A 'Mystery Babylon' like overlaid into this world one last time now as they have cycled through multiple attempts to unite into a NWO and many of the Baalim are running the religious show! True beasts like animals, the desolate desperate for relief though cannot obtain what we have of LIFE!, Like chamelion's... they have changed the modern day 'Samaria', to say into Babylon without the people having to go anywhere. Now the last and final play of dark light/false light is underway but going exactly according to plan (Rev 17:17) As that behind the scenes at the highest place is Hope for the Restoration, Total Destruction for the Desolation. Real Relief is on the way and the criminals will get the results of their love and deceit. And they will get to drink up what they love. But, knowing also we're not getting out of here in a dust body. The Hope is so near!! So our Father YHWH Calls still for repentance to the handlers of law that do not know Him and to those who have thought Him to be the salvation by Baal a lawless strange 'god' as another "Jesus". We dealing with this situation know how real it is today. The true King is even calling now to the ones caught up in as 'Egypt' of the A club, to destroy their idols to come out and repent and return to Him. Still loving us all because He knows what His Wrath will Bring when His real Fire falls on the whole world. And we only get out by Having His Name of Salvation written upon our heart else we would be just like everyone else without Hope. Some amazing changes are underway and the final confrontation of the darkness by the light will be as we already have from newspaper of old to say like in the Torah, Prophets, and Revelation. Sleepers won't have to wait long now to wake up to what is going on. Thought we could play in Babylon or stay in Egypt having so much fun... but just like a snare coming on the whole world and those caught won't have any OIL to burn to see what is happening and might run right into the place they thought not to go" (RDR, USA, 4 February 2011)
