the beginning is really the end

Lordy, Lordy, Mighty, Mighty

Whenever the bible repeats a word 3 times, really pay attention to whom it is speaking about (or what) you will always find a wealth of information you may have missed before.

Now what we’re going to study today is the story of a colossal and an amazing building project. As a matter of fact this is Satan’s civic masterpiece a great tower that was built by these people back before the flood. It was a high rise, but it was a high rise to Hell. What it was, was a center of world religion and world government. It has great, great prophetic significance for you. If you want to know what’s going on, lay down your newspaper. Pick up your Bible.

Now look, if you will, in Genesis Chapter 10 and verse 8. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: whereof it is said, (here’s a proverb) Even as Nimrod, the mighty hunter before the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel. Now just underscore that. The beginning of his kingdom was Babel.

Now, let’s go to chapter 11, and read 11:1-9. 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, huh, 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, literally whose top unto Heaven. “May reach” is supplied by the translator. 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 built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they began 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 Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of the earth.

Now what you have here is history and a prophecy, because Genesis is the seedbed of all Bible prophecy, and these stories literally happened. But God records them in the Bible, because they are a preview and a prefiguring of what is to come. And you’ll see very clearly that this man Nimrod is a picture of the beast who is going to come, the anti-Christ who is going to come, and this city that was built, Babel, which was really Babylon as we will see. Is the cradle and the grave of all false religion.

There are two great cities in the Bible. One is Jerusalem, and one is Babylon. Jerusalem is the Holy City. Babylon is the Hellish city. There are two great leaders in the world, Christ and anti-Christ. And there is a battle between Babylon and Jerusalem, Christ and anti-Christ. We’re right in the middle of it. And we dare not be ignorant. Now I want you to see the coming kingdom of Satan, and I want you to see the coming kingdom of Christ.

First of all, I introduce you to someone that I want to call the Babylonian beast, the Babylonian beast. Go back now to chapter 10, and here’s a man named Nimrod. Look, if you will, in verse 8. And Cush begat Nimrod. Now these are people that actually lived back in the dawn of civilization. A man named Cush had a son, and he named his son Nimrod.

Do you know what the name Nimrod literally means? It means let us rebel. This man was a rebel by birth. Let us rebel. Now look again, if you will. And it says here, he was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Do you see that in verse 9, a mighty hunter before the Lord? That doesn’t mean that God just merely saw him do it. But it means that he was in the face of God. As we would say today, “In your face.” That’s what he’s saying to God. He’s not a hunter of animals, not a hunter of deer and antelope. He’s a hunter of the souls of men, and he is a, he is a he is a rebel against almighty God. It speaks of arrogance.

Now put in your margin, right by that, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4. And I want you to see how there is coming another Nimrod, in the last days, in the days in which I believe we’re living. And, the apostle Paul is speaking of the coming kingdom of Christ, and he says concerning the coming kingdom of Christ, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come. That is the day of the Lord. That day shall not come, accept there come a falling away first. The word falling away is the word we get our word apostasy from. There’s coming an apostasy first, and the man of sin be revealed.

Now Jesus is the Man of Sorrows. The anti-Christ is the man of sin. The man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. Jesus is the Son of God, but there’s coming an apostasy. There is coming a man of sin. He is the son of perdition, which means unmitigated wickedness.

And now let’s see what this man of sin is going to be. Notice in 2 Thessalonians 2:4. It’s one who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God. Now learn what the word anti-Christ means. Anti means against, and it also means instead of. The prefix anti means against, and it means instead of. The anti-Christ will be against the true Christ. He will present himself instead of the true Christ. It’s very important that you understand this. The word anti means against, and it means instead of…. Who opposeth, that is against, and who exalteth himself, that is instead of. Notice this, who, this man of sin who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. And so here is a rebel against the true God way back in Genesis. He is a hunter of souls in the face of God.

Now notice not only his arrogance, but I want you to notice his abilities. You’re back in Genesis 10 now, and look in verse 9. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Underscore the word mighty. Wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. Notice back up in verse 8. And Cush begat Nimrod: and he began to be a mighty one; mighty in verse 8, and mighty twice in verse 9. He is called mighty, mighty, mighty. Now our Lord is holy, holy, holy. But this man is called mighty. That is he is a man don’t, not an ordinary man. Three times it is mentioned by divine inspiration that this rebel in the face of God, this Nimrod, this founder of Babel, the cradle of all false religion is called mighty, mighty, mighty.

Now with that in mind, again 2 Thessalonians 2:9, where the man of sin, the lawless one, the son of perdition is mentioned. Notice how he is described. Notice his might. This is 2 Thessalonians 2:9. It speaks of this man and it says, “Even him.” That is the man of sin. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. Get ready. Get ready.

There is coming to this earth such devilish deception. Jesus said it will be so strong if it were possible Satan would deceive the very elect. Don’t you think that intellect would keep you from being deceived. Don’t you think that you’re good intentions keep you from being deceived. Only the Holy Spirit of God’ll help you to see clearly and straightly in these days in which we live. Satan is coming. He’s going to take a man and put into that man such incredible power. He will be Satan in human flesh, as Jesus Christ was God in human flesh. Listen to that verse. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.

You know and I know people that were in church for years and then they fell away,, quit coming, some stay religious, others went wild. But all have one thing in common, they never saw it coming, when they would be on the outside looking in.

Never say it won’t happen, couldn’t happen to you. They said that once before as well. If you’re not careful it could happen, guard your heart friend, it’s your greatest treasure.
