By Matthew Jess Placey God told us what happened at the Tower of Babel in Deut 32:7-9. Wow, of all places to find an answer to the lingering question of Babylon. This is why it is of the utmost importance to KNOW YOUR BIBLE, the Old and New Testament. There are many hidden surprises, but if you do not have a working knowledge of the Biblical record as a whole, finding these nuggets is impossible. For those of you that think there is no hidden knowledge in the scriptures… you are absolutely right. It’s all laid out in front of us if we take the time to flip open the front cover. But still, it takes some digging.
Up to this point we’ve discovered that we have not seen the last of the “sons of God.”
Yes! The original Watchers from Genesis 6 are bound in Tartarus, but there are more fallen elohim. We are not told how there became more angels that are fallen, only that there is more.
Yahweh had scattered all peoples who were prostituting themselves to lesser gods at the Tower of Babel over the whole globe, because He knew if this was allowed to continue “nothing will be restrained from them, which they have IMAGINED TO DO” (Genesis 11:6b).
Along with dispersing (DISOWNING) them, God also gave them over to the desires of their heart with their lesser gods (more fallen elohim). Deut 32:8b “He divided mankind, He fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God.”
Rather than destroying mankind again, God decides to begin anew with Abraham, and his seed will be God’s inheritance.
So in a nutshell God was telling the people and the Fallen Angels, “Go, have your own way. I was raise up a people without any of you.”
Deut 4:19-20 is a very insightful verse. (We are leaving Babel for a moment and looking at Moses and Israel).
19). “And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy GOD HATH DIVIDED UNTO ALL NATIONS under the whole heaven.
20). But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto Him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day”(Deut 4:19-20).
In the beginning of verse 19, God is commanding the Isrealites not to make the same mistake their neighbors made. He warns them not to seek the forbidden works of astrology and worshiping of angels.
God also reminds them what happened to those ungodly people at the Tower of Babel, “God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.” In other words, GOD DISOWNED THEM and gave them over to their sin along with their gods.
The Apostle Paul alludes to this same DISOWING process.
“And hath made of one blood ALL NATIONS of men for to dwell on ALL THE FACE OF THE EARTH, and hath determined the times before appointed, and THE BOUNDS of THEIR HABITATION.”
Paul also echos God’s commandment at the beginning of Deut 4:19 in Colossians 2:23
“Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and WORSHIPING OF ANGELS, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.”
Here Paul is alluding to the FALLEN ANGELS which the early Israelites were warned not to worship.
THIS STUFF IS REAL!!!
Note Exodus 34:14 “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”
God would not be jealous over a stone, wood, or clay idol. God is jealous because His beloved creation has turned away from Him to worship real fallen elohim!
In verse 20 God explains to the Israelites what He has done to receive them as His chosen people, His inheritance! They are to Praise God and worship Him only for taking them out of the fiery furnace, the pollution’s of this world, and the wicked abominations of the pagans.
This stuff is not only real, IT’S SERIOUS!
Do you really thing God would be that outraged if people were just worshiping an idol made of wood? It was the wood, clay, or stone Idol they would channel the fallen elohim through. God was their Creator, not some rebellious elohim. This needed to be dealt with severely!
Now here’s the problem (not for God, but for us to see it clearly). Because hind sight is 20/20, we know that Jesus died for the gentiles too, but didn’t God disown them (us) at the Tower?
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman than needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD OF TRUTH.” (2 Tim 2:15)
