Scripture: Genesis 11:1-7 HAPPY EASTER!
In Genesis 11:1-7 we are told, “Now the whole earth had one language and 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. Then they said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’ They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.’ But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’” God created man in His image and in His likeness and man has the ability to create that mirrors God. Just as God created us, we can create children in His image and likeness. Anything we can conceive in our mind, we can create. What they were attempting to create in these verses was a city whose height was above the highest level of the flood so that it was beyond the judgment of God. What is revealed here is the magnitude of rebellion in the pinnacle of His creation. Nothing is impossible because we are like God and we definitely have the ability to create both good and evil. The unlimited power to create is in us. When the Lord gives us a prophetic word, offering us the creative anointing, it signifies a move into His realm with eternal consequences. We should do everything we can to qualify.
