Thanksgiving: I give thanks to The Lord for guiding and directing my path. I have been given much and seek to show my Love for His Grace and Mercy. I seek to praise the Most High God and bring Glory to His Name!
It is written, “Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel–because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4-9
“Then they said, “Come let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens…” In the early part of human history, men spoke one language. By this time, they were corrupted with sin and sought to build monuments to themselves as an expression of their greatness. “The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” Now, we must understand how deep this statement that was from The Lord. When men come in one accord with the same language, there is power. Scripture reveals that through Christ we can do all things, but we must remember how this is accomplished.
The Lord came down and confused the language of men. Once all men had the same language, cursed with confusion, speak many different languages. Many of us communicate within our different languages, but we must understand, the root of all spoken languages is just Babel. For men speak with silver tongues, but their language is just gibberish. I know many may not understand these things, but when Jesus died and made way for the Holy Spirit, once again were we able to speak the Language that we lost at Babel. “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?” Acts 2:4-8
Even though they were speaking in tongues, those of all different backgrounds heard their own language. How can this be? We must understand that we cannot be moved by anything that isn’t God inspired. There are many who will try and move you away from the Truth that the Spirit of the Lord brings. It is important you receive what the Lord has for you, only by the Baptism of Jesus shall you discovery the Promise that is available to all men.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I pray and intercede for all who want to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Name!
