A disciple's comment on 4/18/2018, 2:50pm...

"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." God separated men into their own languages and countries for their good, to curtail the evil things that they began to imagine under Nimrod at Babel. Eventually this too must give way for the completion of the age.

R4Love; The Bible says that there are three Divine Persons in heaven; the Father the Word and the Holy Spirit. Jesus said many times that He and the Father are one and that He is "I AM" and that He does everything He sees the Father do; even raising the dead. When God said, "Let us make man in our image," I AM was pronouncing our very coming into being; and so we were made entirely by God's Words.

I have a question. I just started reading and in Gen. 1:26, it states "...Let us make man in our image, after our likeness". Who was He talking to?

Verse 1: This verse shows that originally the earth was full of people who spoke only one language.

Mr. Smith; Consider what the LORD said, with the view that they had raised up a city and a tower of rebellion against the heavens. Read Psalm 2 (for example), and think of that unrestrained "imagination" as that they thought to cast God out from the world and all influence upon the hearts and minds of men; like they do still to this day. The evil seed planted in men's souls, is coming to the full.

MrSmith,2Cor.10:5"Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ"I'm not talking about inventions or getting out of a jam.Gen.6;5,Gen.8;21,Deut.2;19,Luke1;51,etc.
The Holy Spirit helps with prayer,Scripture teaches us to rely on Him,not our own understanding.Proverb 3;5

 


Mr. Smith's comment on 5/04/2017, 6:47am...

v 6, From God's mouth to our ears. NOTHING will be restrained (or nothing will be impossible) from them (to them) which they have IMAGINED to do. The power of the human imagination is infinite. God made us after his likeness, a creator. Every invention of man started in the imagination. Whatever situation we're facing we can imagine our way out of it.

Cheryl - Gen. 10:31 (not 34) and Ch.11:1; the Bible isn't written 'chronologically' - in the exact order things happened. And that's God's intention: so we would STUDY to shew ourselves approved, 2 Tim. 2:15; v. 23.

 


Irene123's comment on 3/16/2017, 2:17pm...

V.10 - It's interesting only Arphaxad is mentioned; Shem had several sons.

 


Irene123's comment on 3/16/2017, 2:12pm...

V.4 - " ..... lest we be scattered upon the whole face of the earth". And that's exactly how God punished them. Man still today thinks he can out maneuver God.

 


Irene123's comment on 3/13/2017, 11:33am...

" ..... people were too fast .... "; honestly! don't you know God is - omnipotent and omniscient? God CONTROLS the population; it does NOT get out of His control. My God (Jesus) is somewhat bigger and more powerful and smarter than other's 'gods' on here.

PEOPLE were advancing to fast so GOD slow them down this happen a lot in history war and sickness look to the knew world order trying make one country ITS satins plan to wipe people out,

Cheryl, the original text did not have chapters and verses; they were added later to make the Scriptures easier to reference for the Bible scholar. Because it was so popular, it became the regular way to copy the Bible. We should read it in the whole context it was first written. This should help answer your question. Also, it isn't always exactly chronologically written; but according to subject.

 


Cheryl's comment on 8/08/2016, 10:44am...

Chapter 10 verse 34 now in this chapter verse 1 it say all one language

 


Michael C.'s comment on 8/04/2016, 8:22pm...

Hi Leah.They were constructing a city and a tower, for rebellion. It is almost extinct from knowledge or understanding today,and never taught, about that city,Babel, and what terrible ruin it effected on men,to make them heathen;something so evil and perverted and blasphemous, that couldn't be driven out of their hearts, even by the confounding of the languages, and scattering over all the earth.

 


Norm's comment on 3/12/2016, 3:54am...

Valerie, keep asking the Father for a clean heart, faith and wisdom and the LORD will give you understanding beyond your own comprehension as you continue studying His Word. Anyone who asks in sincerity will receive. May God bless you with a pure heart abounding in charity and fill you with His Holy Spirit! In Christ Jesus my Lord and Saviour I pray. Amen. Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you seek, and ye shall find knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth and he that seeketh findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Valerie santos's comment on 3/11/2016, 8:02am...

Okay so I have been using the years according to genesis geneologies and found that Noah was alive when Abram was born 193 years after the great flood for at least 57 years. That means Abram possibly met his great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great grandfather Noah.

 


Joseph Caines's comment on 9/04/2015, 1:59am...

There are great spiritual truths to learn from this chapter : 1.The power of imagination, which speaks of creativity 2. The power of uniting a common agreement and belief. These show the explosive ability of the image of God in man on earth, that God was very concern, so He caused confusion among their communication, which affected their imagination and unity. Mankind was placed to govern the earth Gen 1:26-28 , but sin has corrupted his God given purpose that is why Jesus came to redeem mankind.

 


Leah's comment about verse 3 on 8/23/2015, 9:14pm...

What does this mean? I want to understand Gods word better.

 


Gary Mattis's comment on 8/09/2015, 10:32pm...

Genesis Chapter 11 7 uses the word US again for God , let US go down ! , The Messiah and Father are already together here as a unity exactly like they are in chapter 1 and 2 of Genesis.

 


Israel's comment on 7/10/2015, 11:31pm...

the tower of babel is the pyramids. in my opinion...from the text it says they began to build a tower that reaches unto heaven....and in verse 8, it says they were scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.....AND THEY LEFT OFF TO BUILD THE CITY. Although God did change their language,and scattered them, they still had the idea......that is why their are pyramids all ver the earth........
