Following a global catastrophe there was A Great Reset and the world radically changed, almost overnight: the world population was greatly reduced, yet globalization increased at an alarming rate, national borders were done away with, and the people reimagined politics, government, religion, economy, society, and finally… the different peoples of the world were united under one flag, one government, one supreme leader, one religious belief, one language, one currency, and became one united Godless society that lived in one great city as they worked on one mega project.
I’m talking about the time that followed Noah’s Flood in the days of The Tower of Babel.
Following Noah’s Flood—4,400 years ago—human civilization started over.
We know from the Bible that Mt. Ararat was the final resting place of Noah’s Ark. Its location between modern-day Turkey and Armenia is evidence for The Table of Nations. South of there, from this region of the continent, people began to spread out across the land, speak different languages, and become separate and different nations. We know from recorded history that the oldest known civilizations on Earth—ancient Sumerian, ancient Babylonian, and ancient Egyptian peoples—started out in this part of the globe. Over the centuries that followed humankind would populate the African, Asian, and European continents. Today, the different peoples, nations, and languages we see throughout the world are the result of this great human migration.
Anyone who tells you they know how old The Pyramids are or who made them is lying to you. We have no such knowledge. Recorded history comes to an end (or begins) around the time of The Great Flood. And common sense tells us that the few hundred people that migrated to that region did not build them on the spot. Personally, I believe that what evidence we do have suggests that the great pyramids are older than 2,400 B.C. and date back to a pre-flood age, a time in Earth’s history when there existed races of giants — but that’s another story.
We know from the Bible that after the floodwaters subsided Earth was repopulated. Following the Flood mankind began to increase in numbers. They settled in ancient Mesopotamia in the plain of Shinar. This land was called Babylonia and its chief language was Akkadian.
Recorded history and archaeology confirm that Babylon, one of the oldest civilizations known to man, existed… just south of the region where Noah’s Ark came to rest.
The book of Genesis tells us…
Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:1-4 NIV)
Nimrod (an antichrist figure) was the first world ruler of this new age. The Bible says of Nimrod…
The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in Shinar. (Genesis 10:10 NIV)
In the writings of the historian Josephus we discover the true purpose of The Tower of Babel: it was an anti-flood / climate crisis project. Josephus also confirms the Genesis account of Noah’s Flood and makes note of Noah’s three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. He writes that these men and their families were the first people to venture from the mountains into the plains. Others were fearful that there might come another Flood, but eventually they were persuaded to move to lower ground.
In his Antiquities of the Jews (book 1, chapter 4) Josephus reveals…
“Now the plain, in which they first dwelt, was called Shinar. God also commanded them to send colonies abroad, for the thorough peopling of the earth; that they might not raise seditions among themselves, but might cultivate a great part of the earth, and enjoy its fruits after a plentiful manner. But they were so ill instructed, that they did not obey God. For which reason they fell into calamities…”
“Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grand-son of Ham, the son of Noah: a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it was through his means that they were happy; but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny; seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his own power. He also said, “He would be revenged on God, if he should have a mind to drown the world again: for that he would build a Tower too high for the waters to be able to reach; and that he would avenge himself on God for destroying their fore-fathers.”
“It was built of burnt brick, cemented together with mortar, made of bitumen; that it might not be liable to admit water.”
End of Quote.
The Tower of Babel was a politician’s idea… and people of the ancient world rallied around it. This politician was a hunter of men and believer in Big Government. His campaign promises were grand. His message was one of Hope, Pride, Change, Reconstruction, Prosperity, and Immortality. He knew the people feared a future climate crisis (he was the one pushing it) and they dreamed of a waterproof city and tower that could defy God Himself. He offered them a solution to all their problems. But it was just a bunch of hype. Construction of the tower (a symbol of an immortal physical body) was never completed and nothing remains of it today. The project failed. The one-world-order failed. Nimrod failed.
With the current state of geopolitics we see today you would hope that world leaders could learn something from this story. You’d hope that their supporters could too.
