Biblical Concept: Ethnic Nationalism Versus Babel Globalism
Note: Nation / nations are found 644 times in the Scriptures.†
Ethnic Nationalism versus Babel Globalism is found in Genesis 11:1-9.
Genesis 11:1-9 1 Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.† 2 And it came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.† 3 And they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly." And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.† 4 And they said, "Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name; lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."† 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.† 6 And the LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.† 7 "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."† 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.† 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth. (Godís plan for humanity is ethnic nationalism to thwart collective evil.)
The situation: Previous and post to Genesis 11.
Pre-fall Divine global goal.
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
Angelic infiltration and humanities fall: Garden then global.
Genesis 3:13-15 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."† 14 And the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly shall you go, And dust shall you eat All the days of your life;† 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel."`
Genesis 6:1-7 1 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.† 3 Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."† 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.† 5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.† 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.† 7 And the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."
Noah: Fill the globe (Genesis 1:28 still applies.)
Genesis 10:5 From these the coastlands of the nations were separated into their lands, every one according to his language, according to their families, into their nations. (Godís post-fall ethnic-nation global goalóto thwart humanitiesí globalist goals.) (Babel rebellion against Godís ethnic national plan was comingóGenesis 11.)
Genesis 10:20 These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, by their nations.
Genesis 10:31 These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, according to their nations.
Genesis 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, by their nations; and out of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.
