So what have we learned from this? Well, the calamities of our time are the result of a failure to live out the true biblical faith in all institutions in society. It’s really not that different. The calamities upon us now with the economy are hopefully driving us back to a commitment to God. The question is do we respond correctly to his chastisement. If we do, then he can help us peacefully restore our republic. Then we can work to elect godly, honest leaders who will fear God, follow the Constitution, and refuse to take bribes or steal the wealth of the people. America has experienced four major awakenings. Do you know that each one of these awakenings follow the period of economic depression? Maybe that’s where we are now and that will drive us back to God. We appear to be approaching such a time. May God refresh our love for him and refocus our minds on his strategy for rebuilding this nation, this broken land and make America again that shining city on the hill.
Welcome back to The Story of Liberty. This is your host, John Bona. Tyrants have been around for a long, long time. The first recorded tyrant was Nimrod. Scripture tells us about this man. Since his time around 4000 BC, the creation of humanistic pagan gods has been the tool of tyrants like this to control all the masses. Their names are Pantheon, they are many. As indicated by the roman temple which still stands today in Rome, it was dedicated to seven different gods. But the many gods that were out there from the many different cultures are legion, they are many.
Scripture tells us that Kush was the father of Nimrod who became a mighty warrior on the Earth. Nimrod was a hunter before the Lord, scripture tells us. We also see that a picture of Nimrod in Mica 56 the land of Nimrod drawn with sword. Nimrod is associated – we always think of the tower of Babel. Now the whole world had one language and a common speech we’re told and as people moved Eastward, they found the plain and settled there. They said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city and a tower that reaches to the heavens so that we may make a name for ourselves.” Well, the Lord didn’t like that and he came down to see that city and that tower that the people were building. The Lord decided to confuse their language so they would not understand each other. The Lord scattered them all over the earth and they stopped building that tower and that city. That’s why it’s called Babel because the Lord confused the language of the whole world and he scattered them over the face of the whole Earth.
