The Tower of Babel.

After the flood, the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

God's judgment against the wickedness of the world brought forth the flood of waters that destroyed the angelic corrupted flesh of what was mankind, and perhaps even of the genetically corrupted animal beings.  You would think that God's judgment that destroyed all living beings, except that which was on Noah's Ark, would cause a change in the heart bent direction of humanity.  However, even with God's retribution against evil, the heart of mankind remained unchanged, and the same controlling satanic entity of narcissistic sin remained, so that every imagination of the thoughts of man's heart was only evil continually.  The prophet Jeremiah says that The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: Who can know it? (See Jeremiah 17 verse 9-10.) The mind set within the soul of a person, is inextricably bound to their living flesh, and every man will do his own thing, according to the dictates of his own heart of self preservation.  Now, after the flood, there was the natural increase of Noah's offspring, and they being of one language, could not be restrained from doing all that was in their hearts.  In willful defiance to God, the corrupt of mankind, apart from God, would make their own way in the earth; all they needed was leadership that was made in their own image and likeness.   

As rendered in the previous chapter, Ham's wife was the most logical carrier of the Nephilim chromosomal anomaly that would have produced corrupt hybrid offspring. The corruption of the genome of man-kind had already been seeded within Ham's children of Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan. Witness in scripture that after the flood the first of the mighty men, or giants, was Nimrod, the son of Cush, the son of Ham through Ham's carrier wife.  Nimrod had a much enlarged stature with a charismatic personality to go with it, and as such, his presence demanded the respect of the people.  The Scriptures reveals Nimrod's power over the people,  Wherefore it is said:  Even as as Nimrod the mighty hunter before [is in place of] the Lord.  And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, Calneh, in the land of Shinar. (Genesis 10 verse 9 and 10.) In the building of his kingdom, when Nimrod spoke, the people followed suit, all spoke the same thing.  Come, let us build brick, and burn them thoroughly.  And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.  And they said, Come, let us build a city and tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth. The grandchildren of Noah, in their enlarged arrogance, decided to build together, a monument to their pride and in defiance to God.  Satan had sowed his seed of defiance and corruption into the heart/core of man, and now the confusions of sin was beginning to take place in the core of all of the people's thinking.  Their judgment became supreme in their own eyes, even as it is today with all people. (See Romans 2 verse 28.)

But the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do [that which is right in their own hearts]: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Let us go down, (from Eternity) and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. (See Genesis 11 verse 4 thru 7.)  The people's initial construction of the city and the tower, were to be prideful monuments to celebrate the name of the human builders, and in their thinking, the structures were meant to separate themselves from the remembrance of the Creator's Name.  Now, with the Lord confounding the people's language, the monuments to their insurrection could not be completed, and now the place of the confusion was called Babel.  God brought and end to their self willed project, by bringing confusion to the people's communications, and then He scattered the people upon the face of the earth. (See Genesis 11 verse 9.)

Elohim's Word is universally Supreme, and He would oversee and protect His Garden Promise of the victorious seed of Man/Adam through the seed of Ishshah/Eve, by quarantining the children of Noah and preventing the complete corruption of themselves with themselves. 

God confounded the one language of the post-diluvium people into many languages, and in their confusion to communicate, He separated them into different cultures, and thus He scattered the Children of Noah unto the four winds of the earth.  The absolute potential for confusion in the genetic seed of Man/Adam, would end at Babel when God created confusion with the multitude of the languages of man, which would culminate in God's strategic disbursement of Noah's offspring throughout the earth.  Thereby, with one stroke, Elohim maintained His creation of the original genetic seed of Man, derived from the WoMan of Adam, from which the Promised Messiah would come in the flesh of Adam.  With the scattering of the people, Ham's children would initially migrate to sections of the middle east and Africa, and in that time, his children would take initial control of all of Canaan.  God would choose the land of Canaan for His reclamation of all that belongs to the Creator alone.

Summary of thought:

  1. With God's multiple confusions brought to the language of the people, then the people were divided into cultures and nations according to the new language.   Also, the singularity in communication to consort with the evil of the first kind, was sumwhat minimized.

  2. With the scattering of the one tribe of man kind into a multitude of cultural nations, God minimized, for the time being, the genetic and moral damage that would happen with what was then the descendents of Noah that formed the initial one common tribe of people.

  3. In the finality of God's Covenant Promise in the Garden of Eden, God would preserve the genetic seed of Man through the genetics of Woman/Ishshah, and that genetic seed from Woman/Ishshah was predestined to be the Victorious Incarnate Son of God, the Giver of Life.  Within His creation of time, God would guard over the genetic seed of Man that would come through the lineage of Noah's genetic son, Shem.  Through our eyes of faith, we seen in time, that the seed of Woman from the first Man/Adam, would be miraculously impregnated by the Spirit of God, as the Last Son of Adam/Man and the Son of God, being gestated within the virgin womb of a Jewish Woman named Mary.

  4. The Promised One, was conceived in the flesh of Adam being born the Son of God, the Last Son of Adam, and the victorious Son of Man
