Series GENESIS – THE BOOK OF THE BEGINNING with Pastor Kurt Piesslinger, M.A. |
5.ALL NATIONS AND BABEL |
The truth about the development of peoples and languages. |
Memory Text: Genesis 11:9 – Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
Babel means confusion. This is the fact about human beings since the fall in Eden.
5.1 The curse of Ham
The sons of Noah experience either blessings or curse.
5.2 The Genesis genealogy
Having been born in order to die. This is people`s fate. But God has made an escape for human beings.
5.3 One language
The wish for unity is an old one but it tends to be breakable.
5.4 Let us go down
God`s plans are normally not our plans although he knows what is best for us.
5.5 The redemption of the exile
Being independent from God leads to dependance from the bad power in the universe.
The early history of mankind is a story of confusion and bad decisions. But whoever built his faith on the creator was well off.
My God bless you today and always.
