|“God insists on your looking to Him alone for the meeting of your needs. You covet when you seek to meet your own needs, or look to any other person than God for the meeting of your need. When you covet you commit idolatry.” Ref: Colossians 3:5 Walter A. Henrichsen (“Walt H”)——://///
Thoughts from the Diary of a Desperate Man by Walter Henrichsen
“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 nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.”‘ Genesis 11:6
The whole earth spoke one language, and united the people built the Tower of Babel. I have never been sure what this tower looked like, or how the people thought it would accomplish their objective, but God responded to them with this startling comment: “If we don’t stop them, there is nothing that they won’t be able to do.” You may want to qualify this comment; there are many things mankind will never be able to do. But God does not qualify His assertion, and thus scatters the people by confounding them with a multiplicity of languages.
This scattering produced at least the following: a diversity of cultures and religions- the inability to understand one another, not only because of language, but also culture – and war. Diversity breeds divisiveness. There is no indication of war prior to the Tower of Babel. You find instances of violence, such as Cain killing his brother, but no organized group warfare. God instigated much of the chaos you find in the world.
People have always worked toward solving the problems of the world through unity and union. We formed the League of Nations, the United Nations, and some look to the union of European nations as the another step towards one world government. We sign nuclear proliferation treaties, seek to eliminate poverty and injustice, etc. If God were to allow success, it would seal the eternal damnation of the world, for the path from God is independence; the path to God is dependence. God uses chaos to teach people their need of Him. Never cease thanking God for chaos.
