Genesis 11

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 morter.

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.

Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lordscatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

13 And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:

15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

16 And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

17 And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.

18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

19 And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.

20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:

21 And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.

22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:

23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

24 And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

25 And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.

26 And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.

28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.

31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

  1. 6The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. (NIV)

    The Lord saw that the people were united when he saw that they were building a city and a tower. He stated that when they are willing to be one, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

    To be united simply means to join together and be in unison. We find that when a group of people become one they have the same mind frame and the same vision. We as the Christians in a society that are being desensitize from the will of God have to maintain a vision that brings unity. Because it’s been said the enemy or the devil doesn’t fear a large church, but he fears a unified church. That unity will bring the favor of God that when we face the world, we will see the blessings unfold in areas that an individual may not be able to step in. But when we keep our minds together in one accord, we will be able to overcome the enemy.

    We have to be unified and push the world back with the gospel and stand upon the truth of the word of God. Seeking first the kingdom will bring the unity needed for the church to be victorious. An army divided can be conquered.

    #AUnifiedArmyWillBeVictorious!

  2. 6 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.

    “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 3-6 KJV

    “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
    for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 KJV

    Good desires that we strive together in unity… ONE FAITH… ONE BAPTISM… ONE LORD… In ONE Accord… ONE Spirit… #oneness #holiness

  3. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

    8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

    9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lordscatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

    10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

    11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

    12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:

  4. 6 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.
    7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

    One of the goals that the enemy tries to do is to call separation and division. Division within the body will cause more damage than anything on the outside. The anime nose that if we are of one mind working to do one mission nothing can stop us especially since we have the Holy Ghost empowering us. this is why the early church was so effective is because even though they had their issues they were of the same mind to reach the same world.

  5. People use to speak the same language but because of an unfortunate decision . We now speak different languages. We were unstoppable . But Thank God for the Holy Ghost because even though we soeak different languages and have different Ethic Backrounds we are still unstoppable. It is because of HIS Spirit.

  6. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    DONT DIE IN HARAN

    31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
    32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

    The instructions were simple, GO to Canaan. But Terah stopped in Haran and where he stopped is where he died. Every Born Again believer is BLESSED by JESUS with the same promise. “He that endureth to the end shall be saved”.

    The meaning of Canaan is “lowland” or “humility” the meaning of Haran is “mountaineer” and its root word means “angry, burn or incite passion” we can recognize the 2 together as arrogance and pride.

    Pride is the greatest obstacle to Humility and will keep us from our destination Heaven if we fail to press on. No doubt it is more enticing to dwell in the high lands of control, rather than proceed to the lowlands of humility. BUT. If GOD said GO to Canaan we should not stop in Haran and die in the place that was intended to be a place of rest not death.

    DONT DIE IN HARAN. Don’t stop where you are now. We much more to explore we have farther to march. Keep pressing.

  7. 4 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.

    Theres pros and cons here that we have to be careful of. The power of the people as a United front, But also the dangers of being “self-made”.
    The power of unity was so strong it got God’s attention. They would have been able to break barriers. What barriers can we break as a church United for His Kingdom?
    Pride can rise up first as something seemingly innocent but can surely get out of hand as it is fed by ideas and accomplishments. If we lose sight of the Lord and what he has done in our lives I can certainly look like oh I did all this. It was me. Let us not be so easily deceived that anything accomplished in our life was merely by our own hand. We serve a Master and King that orchestrates the beautiful Symphony Of Life.

  8. Verse 4 AMP “They said, “Come, let us build a city for ourselves, and a tower whose top will reach into the heavens, and let us make a [famous] name for ourselves, so that we will not be scattered [into separate groups] and be dispersed over the surface of the entire earth [as the Lord instructed].” Thus, the problem when they began with “for ourselves” and went against what the Lord had instructed.

    Proverbs 3:6-7 NLT “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”

  9. 3. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

    4. 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.

    5. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

    7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

    8. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

    WORK + UNITY = Visitation and Action from God

  10. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

    6 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.

    Unity!!!!! Even God recognizes what we can do if we unite!! There is no limit to what God can do if we unite in one mission REVIVAL IN DFW!!!! In Jesus Name Amen!!!

  11. iLove the Kingdom
    4And 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.

    Let’s think about this…these scriptures are ones in which a person needs to add upon the scriptures in previous chapters in order to get the full understanding and context. With that being said, let’s look at chapter 10 for a moment. Yesterday we learned that the beginning of Nimrod’s kingdom was Babel. Gen 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth…And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel… We also learned that Nimrod’s name became famous in the earth at that time. With these two facts, we can conclude that Genesis Chapter 11 which gives us details of the building of Babel is being led by none other than Nimrod himself with a desire to become famous in the earth. Wow, I can’t believe I never put two and two together.

  12. Genesis 10 :3-4 [Amp] And they said one to another, Come, Let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. So they had brick for stone, and slime
    ( bitumen) for mortar. [4] And they said, and a tower whose too reaches into the sky , and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we scattered over the whole earth. The key word is God power and be in unity together. Work, seek and find. It’s not about us it what we do for God and his will. Don’t stop keep on going Pofw. We can do it !

  13. 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.

    The synergy of many, but the mind of one allowed the Israelites to accomplish the city and tower that the Lord came to view.

    Imagine the synergy that is evident at POFW coupled with the unity of being “one” what revival and harvest we could experience? All it takes is people lining up with the vision God has given us IMPACTING LIVES TO CHANGE THE WORLD! Whose life can I impact today? God help us to not let a day goes by that we all purpose to impact a life for the Kingdom!

  14. 6And 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.

    Unity.

    When the church becomes unified, there is nothing we can’t do through the power of the Holy Ghost. When our fires on our altars become one ,the Fire of God will fall ever hotter. Let unity araise in the church body and watch what God does.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom of God
    How is your altar

  15. 11:5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men builded.
    Wow unto us!!!
    Out out and be ready when the Lord makes his visitations to us, it can a blessing or a something else I don’t want to find out.
    Lord guide me in your truth and teach me your statutes. Deal with my heart daily as I look forward to walk with you constantly.

  16. 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 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/gen.11.4.KJV

    What if we as the people of God said let us build the kingdom of God. It doesn’t matter who gets the credit or what church He uses because we are one body anyway. As long as Jesus is glorified and souls are saved from a devil’s hell, then we should rejoice with those who rejoice; the ones being saved, Jesus, and all of heaven. Lord let unity prevail among us!

  17. Genesis 11
    They said, “Come, let us build a city for ourselves, and a tower whose top will reach into the heavens, and let us make a [famous] name for ourselves, so that we will not be scattered [into separate groups] and be dispersed over the surface of the entire earth [as the Lord instructed]

    How sad ; rebellious once again.
    Scripture says right here that they wanted to make a name for their self. And they went directly against what God had commanded. Why is it so difficult for people just to be obedient to God s Word? Sometimes I just don’t get it…..rebellious country rebellious children rebellious adults yet God will have the last say. Why not live for God? Why not be happy doing it! There will be either judgement or rewards . I choose to live in His Word under His authority! In Jesus name. Ever wonder why someone just babbles on and on. Maybe they are living in rebellion.

  18. “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…”
    Genesis 11:3-4 KJV

    “Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities… And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick…wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.”
    Exodus 1:11‭, ‬13‭-‬14 KJV

    That which they chose to do in their sin became that which they were forced to do in their captivity. In like manner, the pleasure of sin almost always becomes the toil of bondage. It matters not what it is (whether lust, fame, wealth, reputation, selfishness, pride, etc.), that which we put before the Lord soon rises up to lord over us. Subsequently, no man becomes an addict by obeying God; rather, every addict is a slave to the sin he chose.

    “His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.”
    Proverbs 5:22 KJV

    We will serve something. According to Scripture, if we resist God, we become enslaved by sin, but if we serve God, we are set free from sin. The only path, therefore, to freedom is to serve the Lord and to obey His Word.

    “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free… Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin… If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
    John 8:31‭-‬32‭, ‬34‭, ‬36 KJV

    “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”
    Romans 6:16‭-‬18

  19. They said, “Come, let us build a city for ourselves, and a tower whose top will reach into the heavens, and let us make a [famous] name for ourselves, so that we will not be scattered [into separate groups] and be dispersed over the surface of the entire earth [as the Lord instructed].”
    GENESIS 11:4 AMP
    Whoa!!! Build a city for ‘ourselves’ and a name for ‘ourselves ?’
    Yes UNITY at POFW is key!! But this kingdom is nothing compared to HIS KINGDOM!!! Let us not forget whom we serve!
    Where is your J.O.Y.
    J – JESUS first
    O – others second
    Y – yourself last

  20. “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 ‭KJV‬‬

    Anytime there is unity it can be very powerful. In this case the unity wasn’t exactly meant for the best. God rebuked these cats and separated them and making it to where the languages now have a barrier. In today’s times that language barrier has been broke through google translate and scholars and teachers all teaching each other different languages. The unity of the church is something Gods not gonna break apart. The unity of this kingdom is not something God is gonna break up in this day and time that’s why Gods wanting but only for the church so we can rise up and spread the gospel, the truth and all that is above us. He will be glorified and he will be here soon! Revival now we must get in unity with one another

  21. Genesis 11:4 (AMP), “They said, Come, let us build a city for ourselves, and a tower whose top will reach into the heavens, and let us make a (famous) name for ourselves, so that we will not be scattered (into separate groups) and be dispersed over the surface of the entire earth (as the LORD instructed).

    This is totally the opposite of what the Kingdom of God is all about. We are not to build a church and make a name for ourselves, but it’s about GOD and His Kingdom. It’s not about our own little congregation and no one else, but it’s about building His Kingdom and “Going into all the world, and preaching the Gospel to every creature.” (St. Mark 16:15).

    Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God!

  22. Genesis 11:4,7 (KJV)
    4 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. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

    Acts 2:6 (KJV)
    6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

  23. 1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

    It is easy to do what The Lord wants you to do when you are in unity because winter there is unity there is liberty and when there is liberty there is Jesus. Liberty and unity our key components to a Successful walk with God we need to be in unity and we need to live in Jesus freedom that he has given us!

  24. 6 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.

    When the people all speak one language there is accurate communication. This is so important to br able to function towards one goal. This is a way to have unity, that we all speak the same thing. It is in the unity that there is power.

  25. 6 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.

    Unity is powerful when it has the right intentions!

  26. 6 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.

    With unity we know we can accomplish what we have set out to do. They united against God and were scattered, but when we align with the vision of the Lord, we will be victorious.

  27. 9 That is why the city was called Babel,b because that is where the LORD confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.

    Another example by the bible, how many tongues came into existence, but yet scientists refuse to accept. They can’t explain how or when different languages were spoken, they just say, “it happened”.

  28. Then they said, “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.” “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other.” In that way, the Lord scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city.
    Genesis 11:4‭, ‬6‭-‬8 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/gen.11.4-8.NLT

    We all have that moment of pride, we want to be known for something great, Thank God for DELIVERANCE, God had a purpose for them to scatter abroad and cover the earth! He had a plan, and just as it says here, its gonna happen reguardless, they were so set on staying in one place, but God loves unity, not at the expense of obedience!

  29. ““Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!”(Genesis‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NLT)

    The Lord knows all things and when the people joined together in unity they were unstoppable. They were strong as one to do anything they put in front of them but for the wrong reasons. We can be just as united for the kingdom.

  30. 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.

    3 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 morter.

    4 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.

    5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

    6 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.
