“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. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 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. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 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. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.” – Genesis 11:1-8
Unity has been the song of the antichrist spirit from the beginning. God’s commission after the flood was to go out into all the world, into the wilderness places and to subdue them as they trust God and followed His leading. But men wanted cities, they wanted things easy, and the first archetype for the antichrist spirit wanted to lead them. He gathered them in unto him against God’s commission and will and took them out of the their harvest field and purposes, and he did it with a banner of “unity.” “We will work together and build us a city.”
Why were they building this city? To try to out engineer God. The foundations of the great architect mystery religions of Babylon that are still worshiped today by Freemasons and all manner of secret society. Rather then simply seek the Lord, submit to and trust in Him, follow His leading and obey what He speaks to them; they decided to build something that would keep them from being overtaken by an other flood of judgment if it were to come for them.
My friend this is still happening. Don’t get caught up in it. God always calls His men out into a wilderness to follow Him and unity with God will cause you to be in opposition to men and the antichrist spirit that calls men to unity with each other and with demons to work against the leading of the Holy Spirit.
“Yea, they despised the pleasant land (to come), they believed not his word: But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord. Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness: To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. They joined themselves also unto Baal–peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them. Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.” – Psalm 106:24-31
In the time of the exodus, the children of Israel grew to love the cities of the heathen more than the promise of that one that was coming, (the one promised to Abraham) so that they joined themselves together in unity with that spirit yet again and allowed it to stop their moving toward to the promise land as they began to come into agreement with the sins of the cities and false churches around them. For this fornication with the antichrist spirit was God moved to anger and a plague of death broke out among them. Until one faithful Israelite priest was moved to stand with God against this ungodly unity and so the plague was ceased.
King Ahaz joined in unity with Assyria and Israel was judged for it. Ahab joined himself to Jezebel and her people and they killed the real prophets of God. Many times Israel joined in unity with Egypt to save their cities and try to prevent God’s judgment. When all the while it only angered God and accelerated it. While King Hezekiah made a covenant with God to simply pray and minister unto the Lord and it stayed it and brought miracle manifestations that still stir faith unto this day. So ask yourself, where you faith is? Hekiziah choose unity with God knowing that He was the only one who could change things. The others choose unity with the antichrist spirit thinking that a multitude of mighty men could alter what God had set in motion and for it were greatly disappointed. For it is surely a labor in vain to work against God’s own hand.
“Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.” – Hosea 10:13
Finally, in the time of Jesus, the priest had joined themselves to a Hellenistic world system that incorporated into, and then overtook the church of the day. Then inters Jesus calling men to come out of the system. To separate from it. To which nearly all in the establishment rebuked and hated Him (as they had all of the true prophets before Him). They accused Him of bringing “disunity”, and indeed He was! Disunity with the spirit of antichrist and unity with the of Spirit God! Because you must leave one to join the other. You cannot serve two masters. To be Holy (or set apart) unto God we have to separate from that which is contrary to what He is doing. To follow the leading of the Holy Spirit will cause you to walk away from the masses, from comfort, from what’s pleasing, from the antichrist spirit that calls men to come together and trust in their own abilities. It will call you to follow God out into a wilderness and watch Him do what no man can. Even if He has to raise the dead to do it. So it’s time to choose. Prove where your faith is, in God or in men.
“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion. For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still.” – Isaiah 30:1-3, 7
“There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.” – Psalm 33:16-22
