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 them 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 are scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. (Genesis 11:1-4)
Now, before Abraham done one thing to merit it, God called him. That was all. He was just a Chaldean down there in the city of Ur, come down in the valleys of Shinar from the tower of Babel from idol-worship. I think his daddy was an idol worshipper. And I think Laban, after he got down there, proved it, he had them idols. Where could he have got them, if he didn’t come out of the tower of Babel? And out of Ham’s people come Nimrod. Nimrod set up the tower of Babel, which was idol worship, the first idol worship on the earth.
And watch that Babel tower come right on down, Babel, and right on down through there and end up over here in Revelations, a Christian religious idolatry, pretending to be Christianity. Oh, John seen her in Revelations 17, admired her, how she set, looked like, and wore the Name of Jesus and everything else, and yet persecuted and martyred the saints of the living God. The Angel said, “Come here, and I’ll show you who she is.” Said, “She’s a great church that sets over many, on seven hills, and rules over the earth, and so forth, how she drank the blood of the martyrs of Christ.” Oh, mercy.
People, we’re living in the end time. How many of you people has heard years ago down here when they was going to have me arrested down here for preaching on that mark of the beast? When I said that Mussolini, when he first come in power twenty-some-odd years ago, I said, “If Mussolini ever goes towards Ethiopia, mark this down, there’ll never be peace till Jesus Christ comes.” And I said, “There’ll be three great isms, Communism, Fascism, and Nazism.” And I said, “They’ll wind up in one ism, and that one ism will dominate the world and will burn the Vatican City.” You remember me saying that years and years and years ago. And just exactly that way.
I said, “Just before that time comes, that automobiles.” (Which was built that old straight back, twenty years ago or twenty-five years ago. You can remember twenty years anyhow.) I said, “They’ll look like an egg. They’ll be shaped. That’s a vision. Be something on the shape of something like that.” And that’s the way they’ll be just before the rapture.
But God’s just now loosening up the church everywhere, getting in order now so He can get into the rapture, got to give it rapturing faith before it can go in the rapture.
