Our Tower Of Babel

And so, we have come in our times to a remarkable turning point: the belief that our biological sex, genetic makeup, and moral fabric can be completely re-ordered, re-engineered, and re-placed. We have placed our hope almost solely in science and technology to deliver us into a new epoch of human enlightenment and freedom. Our Tower of Babel we are constructing makes the Babylonian tower of the Old Testament look like a hut.
But what is Babel? It is the description of a kingdom in which people have concentrated so much power they think they no longer need depend on a God who is far away. They believe they are so powerful they can build their own way to heaven in order to open the gates and put themselves in God’s place. But it’s precisely at this moment that something strange and unusual happens. While they are working to build the tower, they suddenly realize they are working against one another. While trying to be like God, they run the risk of not even being human – because they’ve lost an essential element of being human: the ability to agree, to understand one another and to work together… Progress and science have given us the power to dominate the forces of nature, to manipulate the elements, to reproduce living things, almost to the point of manufacturing humans themselves. In this situation, praying to God appears outmoded, pointless, because we can build and create whatever we want. We don’t realize we are reliving the same experience as Babel.

It is the "Great Deception" of not only our times, but perhaps the greatest since the Garden of Eden. It is only possible on a global scale if global crises succeed in seducing mankind into believing that the only solution to our problems is in fact to finally  become the gods that Adam and Eve tried, but failed to be—could not be.
It is almost unbelievable that mankind could let itself be so duped, except that Scripture itself, through both new and old Testament prophets, foretell this very thing.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth… I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. Daniel 7:7-8

Fascinated, the whole world followed after the beast. Revelation 13:3
Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist.

Father God, Thank You for giving me the 'awakening & enlightenment' to Your Truth. I ask You, Lord, for Your Grace upon me to speak Your Truth to all of Your children. Especially those who are blinded and asleep. Thank You, Father.
