GOD’S STORY: part 67 Communication and Human Endevour

We are more connected than ever before. And we have more aggression, rebellion and planned protest than ever before.

Let’s look at language and international communication

Genesis 11:1-4 is as follows: “Now the whole earth had one language and 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. Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.””

Preparing the Bride for GOD’s Story

How do we prepare as the Bride of Christ? One aspect is to learn GOD’S STORY. He created us in His image…. Piece by piece, and peace by peace, we learn to walk as He has walked. And we learn His perspective.

Communication and Human endeavour

Mankind, made in GOD’s own image, is creative and really quite brilliant. So, when mankind in Shinar was unified, had an idea and could communicate it, they began to build a tower to reach to heaven.

Why did GOD object to the tower?

What was the result of man’s attempt to reach heaven? God confused their communication. This is the beginning of different languages, a splitting up into various cultures and lands over the earth. But why did GOD object to the ingenuity of mankind?

Global communication and the result

Now that we have English as a “global” language, and maths and science which have universal understanding, look where technology has taken us?

We are more connected than ever before. And we have more aggression, rebellion and planned protest than ever before.

Yes, there is much mankind can do when they are united. Fortunately, some of this “doing” is helpful and constructive. Sadly, much is violent and has brought us into turbulent times.

Yes, mankind can achieve just about anything… But that is not necessarily a good thing.

Thank you Sarah for your inspired ” God’s story”. Certainly, a call and reminder for us to see the importance of reading and studying the Bible , the manual for a blessed, meaningful and “successful ” life, if we only live in obedience according to God’s ways
The great and urgent need for us Christians to seek to understand the world we live in through the biblical lens.
What great opportunities we have to share the Gospel with others in these days as we see so much turmoil in our world in spite of our human achievements in global communication technology
Thank you
Blessings to you and your family

Bless you for your endorsement! The LORD is calling us all to draw nearer, to focus upon Him and upon His Word and to allow Him to grow us!
Yes, it is always a privilege to share the Gospel, even though sometimes it is difficult ground. We never know who will receive and so we trust in the LORD in all ways.

Thanks for taking a moment to share. I’m sure you are speaking to many.

Every blessing.
