The push to "globalize" the world's nations is no longer a secret. It was in the 90s that the ruling elite took off the gloves and removed the term from the proverbial closet. Now, we have a "global" economy, a "global" mentality, a "global" army, a "global" political structure through the United Nations. In a word, the public has now accepted its existence and have drawn their own conclusion as to whether it is a good or bad thing.
In this brief article, I intend to show that globalism is not an approved means of socialization to God, the Most High, our Ultimate Creator of all. How do I know this? Because God put man's last effort to globalize to naught on the plain of Shinar where man worked to build a tower upward to heaven. God scattered man's effort at that time and divided man's knowledge by confusing man's method of communication amongst each other.
Although this was not as large in scope as what we see today, it does illustrate God's basic desire that man live his life in harmony, allowing others to rule separately from others, and not jointly in such a manner that there is only one ruling body, such as the United Nations or the European Union.
"And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the East, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there." (Genesis 11:1-2)
This passage says it well and serves as a basic proof that, after the flood, as the world population began to grow, so did man's need to find space where all could live. This evidently was the entirety of the human race, although this cannot be certain. Then, together, they aspired to greatness so as to remain together as one ruling force, but this was not to God's liking then, as it is not to His liking today.
"And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth." (Genesis 11:4)
As I pointed out earlier, this was not to God's liking because man's nature is to forget where he came from and to whom he owes his very life.
"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." (Genesis 11:6)
It was then that he (and whom ever else He spoke of in plural form) that scattered man's language so he could not communicate on a global scale. It was He who put an end to the tower. And so here we are again, full circle, building another tower to heaven so to make a name; so a relative few can rule over all of mankind. If the wrong in this intention is not obvious to the reader, then there is little hope for that individual. It is assured that God will one day put an end to this folly.
Those who do this should understand that the price they will pay later, in death, will be far higher than they are aware of. For many, there will be a price to be paid in life as well-but it is that which is paid with eternity that matters the most.
Those who believe there is nothing but the grave will suddenly realize their mistake once they've lifted out of the body, for there is certainly conscious thought outside the body, even so in life; this I can assure. No matter what you and I believe in this regard, be assure that reality does not depend on our view, but rather on what the Most High Creator deems as true and fitting.
I am certain that there are many Christians who fail to see the correlation of today's integration through globalism and the long-ago, unified effort to build a tower to heaven on the plain of Shinar. Just remember, the final deed that will doom one to an eternity of death is that of the Mark of the Beast. This should never be forgotten and always ready for recall.
