Tower of Babel
Here is the testimony of human government (Genesis 8:21,22; 9:1-17). “Let us make us a name” (Genesis 11:4). This is a monument to humanity’s open defiance of God. “Therefore is the name of it called Babel” (meaning confusion) (Genesis 11:9). Thus, like Satan, and Adam and Eve, mankind considered as a whole could not consist aport from Christ.
The failure of the Tower of Babel is the beginning of the nations (70 in number – Genesis 10;11:1-9; Deuteronomy 32:8; Acts 17:26). the earth was divided into continents (Genesis 10:25 – The Days of Peleg). The fountain head of the nations were the three sons of Noah: Shem (Asia), Japheth (Europe), and Ham (Africa) (Genesis 9:18,19).
