Did you ever wonder about the entire ramifications of Jesus birth, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension? Did you ever think that there was more to it other than a means of salvation? Did you ever think the actions of Jesus tell a different story other than calling out someone’s sinful ways? Did you ever think that what Jesus might be doing is telling us what life was to become living here on earth? Did you ever think that there was way much more to the story than what has been given in Scriptures? We ask that you keep these entire questions in mind as you go through the next several History Rebuilt Parts as we explore many pieces of history we have not been told in our history books or the pulpit.
We will look at the church entrenchment right after the death of Jesus in this Part. We ask that not only you consider the above questions in reading the discussion herein but you keep an open mind about the subject presented and consider how this discussion fits into the story narrative of Jesus and our current history.
Let’s first define the church. What do you think the church is? How would you define the church?
So let’s walk back in time a bit to bring all this into perspective for the church at the time of Jesus life and death on earth. So we will walk down memory lane from Noah and the flood.
We know that Noah had three sons. Seth was the chosen one for the bloodline of Jesus and the other two sons, Japheth and Ham, would follow the traditions of the religious beliefs leading up to the flood – Satan Bloodline. We are told in Genesis 10 that the sons of Noah rested in an area called Shinar and there built a Tower to the Heavens called the Tower of Babal and because they did so they used the Tower as to represent God and from that God changed their speech and disbursed them throughout the world. It was this event that all nations were created. Genesis 11:1-9 KJV “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 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.”
So after the flood the sons of men built the Tower of Babal to worship. It was Nimrod who lead the construction of the city of Babylon and the Tower of Babal. The very focus here after God had destroyed all evil was to recreate it.
Conceit of the People
It was towards the end of Peleg’s life that something happened which changed the social life of all men on earth.
After the Flood, man had again begun to multiply and fill the earth. They all spoke one language and understood one another well. The generations of people before the Flood had been interested only in themselves; they thought of themselves as supermen and lived each one for himself alone; they used violence and force against their weaker neighbors, paying no attention to laws and rules. The new generation of mankind was different. They stressed the opposite code of living. The individual did not count for himself; he counted only as part of the community, and he had to subject his own interests to those of the group. Had they confined themselves to this kind of social life, all might have been well. But they overdid it. The tremendous strength that grew out of their organization and goodwill made them proud, and their pride made them turn against God.
They decided to build a tower which was to reach to heaven, to make them equal to God, and at the same time, to make it possible for them to stay together. This symbol of their divine strength, as they thought, was to be built in the valley of the Land of Shinear.
