The Power Of Babel

6 The 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.
Genesis 11:6 (NIV)

I have not been writing for quite some time because I have been too busy at work. For this article, I really have to make time to write.

This is the second time I write on the above passage. In the first article, I have a lot of comments from my readers quoting many verses from the rest of the Bible on how great and powerful God is. However, I was not reading other parts of the Bible. I was reading Genesis 11.

Likewise, I shall base my analysis on what was written on this chapter.

I find this chapter very encouraging because it contains the admission from the Almighty God himself on how mighty our species can be when we are truly united. It also reveals that God himself has given us too much power.

Let me start with the background.

After the flood, humanity begun to thrive. They were united and their unity gave them great powers. If you read the first part of Genesis 11, you will find that they were quite democratic. They were not forced by anyone. The decision to build a tower was agreed willingly. They wanted a tower as a centre of their civilization. Based on today’s norm, it is quite normal. So, why is there a fuss?

How do you think God would have responded if you have never read this chapter? I would have thought God to ignore them. After all, what can some puny humans do by building a tower? God should not have waste this time on them.

However, God responded differently.

6 The 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.
7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
Genesis 11:6-7 (NIV)

Was God drunk? Was he high on drugs? Did he have mental problems?

If you can believe that God can never be drunk, on drugs or suffer from any mental disorder, you got to admit that he was terrified, if not worried from the activities of those humans.

What was he afraid of? Based on his own words, it seems that God was afraid those people became too powerful. God was concerned that their common language gave them unity. This, in turn would have propel them to state where nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Wow, I like to be one of them, if God did not mess up their potential.

In fact, God was so afraid that he took immediate action to confuse their language and the rest is history.

Let us stop and think for a while. If these people (who are our ancestor) can be so powerful (based on God’s own testimony) even though they have no regards to God, how much more for believers like us who are on God’s side.

This simply means that God has given us the potential to achieve great things even things that are thought to be “impossible”. In short, we are designed to achieve anything we want no matter how impossible it seems.

Those people in the passage belong to the same species as us. If they can reach the state where nothing is impossible for them, why not you and me? Just remember to be on God’s side so that he will not confuse your language.

In conclusion, I am convinced beyond doubt that as a member of the human species, I have the potential to reach the state that nothing is impossible for me. Since God is with me, who can be against me?

The First Law

29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:29-30 (NKJV)

In the previous article, I wrote on the First Commandment, which is basically the first words God spoke to Adam, the first man the moment he was created. It is clear that we humans were created as kings over the earth. God has never intended us to obey all his instructions like mindless drones as being propagated by theology-infested churches.

We are the boss here. When we obey God, we obey as kings and lords because Jesus himself is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

After God had given the First Commandment, he continued with the First Law as shown in the above passage. I call it the First Law because it is the first law given by God to Adam just after he told the latter that he is the boss. This is about the power of the seed. It is also known today as The Law of Sowing and Reaping.

As you can see, God did not wait for Adam to settle in first before he was told of this law. God told him immediately. This shows that God places a very high priority on the power of seeds.

It must therefore be the will of God that the First Law to be the core of Christian living. We are to live our lives with this law firmly established in our hearts and minds. This is how we can set ourselves apart from those theologically infested “Christians”. We obey God by valuing what he values. Since God values the First Law, so do we.

According to the above passage, God gave us the First Law as a tool for our prosperity. Through the proper application of this law, we can live in prosperity. We can have the lifestyles that are worthy of our calling as lords and kings. We will never be in lack. We will never be poor. We will never face hunger. We are meant to be rich in every area of our lives. God has made sure of that through the First Law.

This law is so powerful that Satan himself has never stopped attacking it. How do I know? I just look at his proxies. If you want to know what Satan is up to, just look at his proxies on earth, which are the theology- infested churches.

Theology-infested churches hate Christians who trust God for things that can be proven like health and wealth. When they see us Christians using the First Law to get a lot of money, they will persecute us with labels like “Prosperity Gospel” as though we have believed in a different gospel. (The latest label I got from a theology-infested website is “self-professed Christian” as though I am no longer a Christian.)

Maybe God allow those churches to exist to serve as our indicators on what our enemy is doing. Since, they hate prosperity so much, it must mean that it is important for Christians to get rich. We get rich through the First Law.

How do we get rich through this law? The magic word here is “seed”. A seed is small and insignificant but when it is sown and planted in the right environment, it can grow into a huge tree that will produce many more harvests of seeds. We can get truckloads of apples from one single apple seed. This is how the First Law works.

If that is so, how can anyone be poor? Being poor on this earth is totally against the design of God. If you are poor or not rich enough (like me), it is time to take the First Law seriously. Make use of it now to get what you want. (This includes politically incorrect stuff like a lot of money.)

How to start? Everything we have, no matter how little is seed of its equivalent. If you only have a few cents, these few cents are your seed. These few cents may not make much difference in your life but if you sow them, they can return to you in the form of millions of dollars. This is God’s way of getting rich through the First Law.

Do you want to be rich? If you do, start sowing. It does not have to be a lot. As long as you keep doing it, the First Law will do its part to deliver your harvests back to you. This is the first law that God had made known to the first man.

What is your choice? As for me, I will keep sowing and sowing until I receive my harvest of millions, billions, trillions and quadrillions dollars. Thank God for the First Law.

The First Commandment

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Genesis 1:26-28 (NKJV)

What did you think of when you first saw this title? I suspect many Christians would have thought of something they must obey at all cost whenever they came across the term “Commandment”. I call this the curse of theology. Anyone who is under this curse will see himself or herself as a mindless drone slave whose role is only to obey all the commandments from God.

Such people will think that they are only behaving as real Christians and expect all Christians to be like them. So, when they see Christians like myself who does not behave like a mindless drone, they were quick to persecute me with terms like “self-professed Christian” as though I have lost my salvation.

The question here is, are they right? Are the theologically infested Christians right in their insistent that all Christians must obey God without question like mindless drones? The answer is no. The Bible says otherwise.

There are many verses scattered throughout the Bible stressing the truth that Christians are not meant to be mindless drones. The above verse is one of them.

I put the above passage because it contains the first words God spoke to man. This is why I call it the First Commandment. Since it is the first words God spoke to man, it must be his will for everyone who chooses to follow him.

What are God’s first words to man? Let us look into it again.

28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Genesis 1:28 (NKJV)

What was God saying? He wanted the human race to take charge over the earth. We were made to be the masters over this earth and everything in it. We are not called to be mindless drones whose role is to obey God without question. We are the boss here on this earth. We make the decisions on what we want and don’t want.

We were designed to subdue this earth and have dominion over all the living things over it. God expects us to be kings. Here is another passage from the New Testament on this truth.

13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing,
15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
1 Timothy 6:13-16 (NKJV)

Please note the term “King of kings and Lord of lords” that is used to describe Jesus. Do you understand what this means?

Jesus is the King only to the kings and the Lord only to the lords. Jesus is not the king for beggars, pauper or losers. So, if you happen to be a beggar, pauper or a loser, Jesus is not your king. If you really want Jesus to be your king, you have to be a king yourself. Being a king means to be rich and powerful.

Those who do not know the Bible will translate this as Jesus being elitist. This is the furthest from the truth. Jesus cares for all of us no matter how bad our conditions are. His priority is lift us up to his glory which covers prosperity in every area in our lives. Those who despise prosperity are effectively despising Jesus.

If you are a Christian, you are effectively being restored to the position of Adam in Genesis 1:26-28. You are now a king over your environment. This is why Jesus is only willing to be the King of kings. Jesus is my King because I am a king.

What does this revelation means to you? Let me share with you its impact on me.

First it means I am the boss. I have the right to think what I want to think, desire what to desire, say what I want to say and do what I want to do. I have complete freedom to follow my heart. Let me give you an example:

When I feel like going to the toilet, I go to the toilet. I do not pray to ask for God’s permission. Neither do I search the Bible to find out whether it is doctrinally correct to go to the toilet.

The same happens in other areas in my life. I live a holy life because I want to, not because I have to. This means I can always sin if I want to. It also means that I am not bothered to put up any pretenses. Throughout this blog, anyone can see very clearly that I have been completely truthful and never hide my true intentions.

This is freedom.

Secondly, this revelation tells me that I can change my environment if I want to. At this moment, I am not very rich. This is why, I want to have millions dollars flowing into my bank account everyday. After I have received my first million dollars, my next target is to obtain my first billion. After I got my first billion, I will go for my first trillion. After that, it will be my first quadrillion dollars.

This is my desire and I am not ashamed to declare it. Not only that I want it to materialize using this truth. I don’t care how bad the situation around me is. I don’t care how bad the economy is. All I know is, my God has given me the power and authority to change my environment. It is my will to use this power and authority to fulfill all my desires.

I want my million, billion, trillion and quadrillion dollars. The richer I get, the better the world is. More people will be delivered from starvation, sickness and hopelessness when I get richer. I love to see people being delivered from hopelessness. This is the main reason why I want to have lots of money. Of course, I have never denied my desire to live like a king. After all, I am a king.

Therefore, by the authority of Jesus’ death at the Cross, I command the riches of the world, consisting of million, billion, trillion and quadrillion dollars to come to me.

This is my revelation from the First Commandment. How about yours?

The First Theology

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:4-5 (NLT)

I am back. Actually, I started work yesterday but I was not in the mood to write. I attended a course for the past 2 days. Right now, I am practicing the strategies thought there. Once I got the hang of it, I will begin with real money and make my first million dollars. For those who have prayed, thank you very much. I am very excited and I look forward for my prosperity even if the world has been shouting the word “recession” to our ears.

I think I have given you enough update about myself. In this article, I shall show you what theology is all about. I have mentioned about theology in my past articles, which has caused some of its worshippers to write in to protest. In their comments, you can see that they are actually proving me right. One of them posted a prayer that asks God to give him poverty and sickness. Another one even declared that he is not like God and he is not a creator.

In case you have not realize about this:
1. Each time you go to work you are creating wealth for your employer.
2. Each time you draw something on a piece of paper, you are creating a piece of art (to those who know how to appreciate it)
3. Each time you cook something in the kitchen, you are creating something delicious.

In short, we are all creators. The only way for us not to be creators is to do absolutely nothing. So, the more the worshippers of theology try to defend theology, the more evil and perversion comes out from them. They are basically proving me right. This is why I welcome theologians to comment in this blog.

Let us begin our lesson. The above verses are the record of the first theology being introduced to humanity. The Bible itself has recorded many situations of theologians committing their deeds. Let me give you a few of them:

1. When Moses sent out 12 spies to scout the Promised Land, 10 of them were theologians. You can identify them based on their negative words.

2. When Jesus began his ministries, his greatest enemies were the theologians.

3. Theologians had infiltrated the early church. They imposed the Law back to the church. This had prompted Paul to write the harshest book (Galatians) in the Bible.

Outside the Bible, we can read about what the Inquisitors and the Crusaders did when they implemented theology. The only reason why today’s theologians do not behave like the Inquisitors and the Crusaders is because they have no more power to do so.

The Bible tells us that theology is evil. We should stay away from it. You cannot worship God and theology at the same time. In this article, I shall attempt to explain the basic principles of theology in detail and I shall do so from the first record of it.

Let me start from the background. After God created Adam, he placed Adam in a prosperous garden. Adam had the freedom to do anything he pleases except for one.

15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.
16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden—
17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
Genesis 2:15-17(NLT)
After that God created Eve. Both Adam and Eve lived happily in prosperity. Then the theologian appeared. He is Satan. Satan took the appearance of a serpent, looked for Eve and initiated a conversation with her. Let us look at their conversation.

1 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied.
3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:1-5(NLT)

The theologian (serpent) began with a question on God’s words. This is the same with theologians today. Please note that the question is very negative.

“Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”

Why did he ask this question? Did he not know about it? Was he just trying to obtain information for his school project? The answer is no. He asked this question with the intention of creating a negative mindset on his prey, which in this case was Eve. Theology can only work in a negative mindset. You can read about the theologians’ comments in this blog. They are very negative. They can even pray for God to make them sick and poor. How low can they sink to?

This tells us that as long as we keep our thoughts positive, theology has no power over us. Theology draws its strength on a negative environment. This is why, its practitioners will always tell us how bad the situation is. They want us to dwell on the negative situation and become negative. Once you have become negative minded, you are easy prey. So, it is imperative for us to be positive at all times. We must guard our hearts.

Eve answered correctly at first but she made a mistake by adding to it.

2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied.
3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
Genesis 3:2-3(NLT)

Eve said no eating and no touching the fruit. God only said no eating. There was no prohibition against touching the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. Eve tried to be extra obedient by adding more rules. This was the opportunity the theologian was waiting for. He found a weak spot in Eve.

Before we move on to see how the theologian struck, let us find out why it is bad to be “extra obedient” by adding more to God’s rules. In my previous article, I wrote about lust. Jesus said that when a man looks at a woman with lust in his heart, he has committed adultery. Jesus had never said that men must never look at women. However, I am not surprise if there are theological crackpots that will say that men must never look at or show any interest to women at all. They are trying to be extra obedient.

In case some of you are wondering why is it wrong, God designed men and women to be attracted to each other. If you are a man who has no interest in women, you should seek medical help.

So, what will happen when you get extra obedient? You will see God in a negative light. You will have the impression that God is withholding good things from you. You think he is blocking your prosperity. As a result you will not trust him as you did before. Eve made this mistake. By adding an extra rule to God’s original requirement, she had created doubts in her faith in God. This is where the theologian struck.

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman.
5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:4-5(NLT)

The theologian started with “You won’t die!” He presented God as a liar. This happens to be the main message of theology today. God is a liar. He has no intention to keep his promises to give you prosperity. All his promises of blessing you with health, wealth, success, long life and other good things in life, are not mean to be taken literally. This means God does not keep his promises.

(One theologian had even said that God’s “good will” for you could be in the form of making you poor and sick.)

In Verse 5, the theologian tempted Eve with the prospect of being like God. Today, this verse has been used by the theologians to discredit the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each time a Christian preacher preaches about the goodness of God in blessing us with prosperity, the theologians will link it to Genesis 3:5 as though God himself was the serpent who deceived Eve. This is a blasphemy, a common characteristic of theology.

Recently I even have a visitor who proudly said that he is not like God. Obviously he must be referring to the above verse. The lie that theology had propagated on Genesis 3:5 is the desire to be like God had caused Eve to sin. However, if you are to read in context, you will find that it is not so. Eve did not sin because she wanted to be like God. She sinned because she tried to be extra obedient by adding to God’s rules. The theologian took advantage of that.

My message here is, it is not wrong in wanting to be like God. As human beings, we were made in His image. When we became Christians, we were born again into a new species of God. We became more like God. God designed us with the desire to be more like him. If you are a Christian, you should have the desire to be more and more like God. A Christian who has no intention to be like God is like a man who has no interest in women. Both are abnormal.

Satan knew about this desire in Eve and used it as a bait to tempt her to sin. Let me tell you the truth about temptations. Temptations can only work by offering the victims what the victim desires. God has given Eve the desire to be like him. Satan created a temptation based on this desire to deceive Eve. Likewise, in other areas in our lives.

The devil will only tempt you based on the things you like. As for me, I like to have a lot of money. So, the devil will design a temptation with the line, “If you do certain things, you will have a lot of money.” if he has some basic intelligence. Of course, it will not work on me because I look to God as the source of my prosperity.

Satan sees your desires as the focus point for his temptations. All his temptations are based on the promises of fulfilling our desires. As long as you have a desire, you are a target of Satan’s temptations.

Does it mean we should not have any desires? The answer is no. God gave us desires. Without desires, we will be like mindless drones. All we need to remember is, we should look to God as the person who will fulfill our desires. Since God is the one who gave us our desires, he will be the one who will fulfill them. So, start trusting in him.

In conclusion, be like God.

The Event That Threatened God

6 “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)

In this article, I shall tell you a story of an event that caused even the almighty God felt threatened and he had to personally take action to neutralize this threat. Think about this. If God has to come down to personally stop you from doing certain things, he must be quite desperate and your actions must have huge impact on him. You must be doing something great. If you are just trying to build a gun to shoot God, I don’t think he will be bothered about it. After all, your bullets can never reach God no matter how powerful your gun is going to be.

So, what can truly threaten God? We shall look into it in this article. This event is recorded in Genesis 11.

It was the time after the Flood. Noah and his family settled on dry ground and began to prosper. In Genesis 11, the human population had grown big. At that time, they spoke one language and had the same culture. They were united and organized. They had even made great technological progress. They knew how to use extreme heat to strengthen clay bricks. This technology enabled them to build tall buildings and this was what they intended to do.

3 They began saying to each other, “Let’s make bricks and harden them with fire.” (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.)
4 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.”
Genesis 11:3-4 (NLT)

They wanted to build a capital. The “tower that reaches into the sky” refers to a tall tower. In today’s term, we call it “skyscraper”. Their plan was to establish a centre for human civilization and keep themselves united. Was that wrong? Their plan was fine but their hearts were not. These people were living independent from God, which is something their species was not designed to do. What do you think will happen to people who have great powers and live independent from God? These people will face great disasters in their lives.

Let me give you an example. It is great to have a lot of money. However, if you have a lot of money and stray from God, your money will ruin you. There are many stories on people who inherited great wealth and ruined by their wealth. They had no idea how to manage their inherited wealth. So, they ended up indulging in every act they could think of like drugs, sex and gambling. Soon, their lives were in a mess. Religious people will use these to show that it is a sin to be rich but the truth is the absence of God in their lives. God is not against us getting rich. In fact he wants us to get rich. The only catch here is he wants us to rely on him for our prosperity.

Let us get back to the story. The people there planned to establish a planetary government for the entire human race on earth. Sounds like a good science fiction theme. However, without God in their hearts, such a government will create worse disaster for the human race, just like the example above on rich heirs who do not know how to manage their wealth.

What is God’s opinion on this?

5 But the Lord came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building.
6 “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!
7 Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other.”
Genesis 11:5-7 (NLT)

It seems that God thought their plan was going to work. So he decided to take action to disrupt their unity to stop their project. I like the last part in Verse 6, “After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! “

God admitted that these people could do anything they wanted and nothing was impossible to them. I think that is the greatest compliment from God to the godless people. No wonder God had to take action. If the city was completed, these godless people would be invincible. In his mercy, God had caused confusion among them by giving them different languages. He ended the science fiction. The first attempt for human species to establish a united planetary government had ended.

8 In that way, the Lord scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city.
9 That is why the city was called Babel, because that is where the Lord confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.
Genesis 11:8-9 (NLT)

What can we learn from the above story? Despite their godless nature, those people were very united. They were so united that even God admitted that nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! This means they could overcome every odds and achieved anything they wanted. The term “impossible” will not exist in their dictionary. Now, if these godless people could have such potential, why not us the sons and daughters of the living God? The question is how united are we?

Please note that I am referring to Christians who truly believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am not including the religious people. Each of us Christians was born again in a new species. Our new species gives us the power to create miracles. We have the power to create prosperity for ourselves and the people around us. Imagine what will happen if we are also united in a single course. We will be in a position which God described as, “Nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!” We will be able to achieve the impossible.

How are we going to do that since we are scattered all over the planet? The best answer I can think of is the internet. We use blogs. Each of us who have access to the internet can set up our own personal blog and link it up in a planetwide network of blogs. We can share ideas and the revelations we receive from the Lord. Each time a single Christian learns something new, this lesson will be shared among millions others. If there is any need, there will be millions of us combining our faith and pray for it. What a great power! Do you think there is anything impossible for us to accomplish?
