    continuing; We can add up the years that God had Moses record, to see that Shem was still alive when Abraham lived. Ancient stories from many countries tell of how Shem was the one who killed Nimrod; and forced the remaining devotees to go into hiding, and shroud their cult in perverted mysteries. But the "Pandora's box" was already opened, and the poisoning of men's minds and conscience was done.

    To help us relate to Abraham in his times, it is important to know that we have the same calling and election from God concerning the Saviour the Anointed, who is the Son of God come in flesh. In Abraham's world, the rise of Nimrod and his murderous antichrist ideology had infected the most of the world; it was the first beast in Revelation. Shem, who put Nimrod down, outlived Abraham by 35 years.
