What does the tower of Babel of yesterday have in common with the one world order of the future? Simply answered, all nations as one.
The Bible gives an account of the history of the flood and its consequential events in the timeline of Noah’s life and the history of the generations of his sons, specifically Ham, the father of Cush. Cush, the Bible says, became the father of Nimrod; Nimrod, was first to be a mighty man on the earth. His kingdom included Babel and several other cities in the land of Babylonia; he went forth into Assyria (today’s Iraqi) and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah; all these [suburbs combined to form] the great city (Gen. 10:9-12). In chapter eleven of Genesis we read that in those days the whole earth was of one language and of one accent and mode of expression; To exercise power and sovereignty against God’s purpose to fill the earth, 339 years after the flood, Nimrod came with the plan to build a city and a tower to reach the sky; a name for themselves lest they be scattered over the whole earth. But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them. Come, 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 that place upon the face of the whole earth, and they gave up building the city (Gen. 11). That was in a small scale, the first idea of one world order.
