God personally restrains Internationalsm because it attacks all facets of Divine Establishment
In our continuing study of Satan's attacks against the "seed of the woman" Gen 3:15 last time we were looking at his attempt to control the entire human race under Nimrod at the Tower of Babel.
Nimrod's Tower of Babel was a combination of political and religious internationalism.
Christianity is therefore completely opposed to any form of internationalism because internationalism attacks Divine Establishment.
Internationalism is a satanic device designed to frustrate the plan of God by breaking down, infiltrating, and opposing Divine Establishment in order to prevent the communication of the Gospel and Bible Doctrine.
During the Church Age internationalism will be active, but it will never be as strong as during the Tribulation because God the Holy Spirit through his indwelling and filling ministries within believers resists it.
During the Tribulation internationalism will reach its maximum under the beast dictator. 2Thes 2:3-12;
Internationalism results in the minimum use of free will, the minimum of freedom, the maximum murdering of people, the maximum negative volition at the point of God-consciousness and a minimum amount of evangelism.
These characteristics are clearly illustrated in international advance of the religion of Islam today.
We see the philosophy of Satan's Internationalism in the following passages:
2Thes 2:9,10; he arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan's working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders,
v10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved.
Rev 20:7-8;Now when the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison
v8 and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to bring them together for the battle. They are as numerous as the grains of sand in the sea.
Rev 12:9,10So that huge dragon - the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world - was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.
v10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, "The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the ruling authority of his Christ, have now come, because the accuser of our brothers and sisters, the one who accuses them day and night before our God, has been thrown down.
Satan is said to be the god of this world in 2 Cor 4:3,4; this means that Satan is the god of all religions.
Satan is said to be the ruler of this world - John 12:31; 14:30.
The ruler of the power of the air in Eph 2:2.;
Satan is the ruler of this present world system Job 1:7; Job 2:2; The phrase " … walking up and down … going to and fro" is an idiom for rulership in the Hebrew.
Seven principles regarding the evil of internationalism are shown in Gen 11:1-4;
Idealistic rebellion against God: He told them to spread out after the flood, but they built up because they did not believe in the Lord's admonition. Gen 9:1,7;
Volitional rebellion against God by mankind as a group: Man was to was to scatter across the earth per Gen 9:1,7;
People in a nation in decline tend to mass in cities. This is one of the characteristics of the fourth cycle of discipline Lev 26:25;
Governmental rebellion against God (They built a city). They should have continued with an agricultural economy that provided the freedom, autonomy and privacy needed to raise a family without being dependent on government.
Physical revolt against God: Their reaction to the Flood of past history was to try to build a tower above the high-water mark of the Flood. Also man thought that the strength of the flesh was strong enough to save them from God's judgment.
Spiritual revolt against God: The tower was to reach heaven. They believed that an international brotherhood was the answer, and that man's works would get him to heaven.
Personal revolt against God in the egotistic thinking that man by man's abilities can solve man's problems.
Structural revolt against God from the philosophy that materialism and false belief that the advance of technology is the god of man and that through these technological advances mankind can solve all of his problems.
Internationalism abolishes national government, private property, marriage, family, and freedom it makes the state responsible for basic needs and education. Inheritance is abolished, along with the Bible, Christianity and patriotism.
We see from this that when Satan gains control of the language and the children, then he is able to develop a culture that promotes his agenda and provides witnesses for his defense against God in the appeal trial.
Those who have been compartmentalized into this effort are parents, teachers, and preachers who have bought into the cultural Marxism and it's attack on Divine Establishment that has infiltrated our entire national culture.
Gen 11:9; Therefore its name was called Babylon, because there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.
The impact of this is brought out by a quote found in Colonel Thieme's book, Freedom through Military Victory, on pages 10-11. that was taken from page 47 of Alva J. McClain's book, The Greatness of the Kingdom (Winona Lake: BMH Books, 1959):
The nature of the divine judgment upon this first try at a World State (Genesis 11) is deeply interesting. It is generally conceded that the cement which holds men together in groups and nations is what we call a common culture, and the very core of such a culture is found in language, man's marvelous ability to communicate ideas.
The satanic strategy against the United States is the promotion of a multilingual multicultural population that will not subscribe to the same culture that was established by the Founders and conveyed to their posterity in the constitution.
The progressive cultural Marxists who are the ruling class in the USA today are being used as Satan's useful idiots to fragment the nation by the promotion of multilingual multiculturalism through the rhetorical veil of equality using the legal power derived from evil judicial rulings that are based on the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment.
Under the guise of equal privilege, the freedom and independence that the constitution guarantees is being destroyed. Once this process results in the dominant culture of the USA being deconstructed the resultant fragmentation will create chaos in the nation. Satan will then use some charismatic leader to lead a crusade to establish a monolithic political-religious culture that Satan can control.
This is the kind of satanic monolithic political religious culture that is described in Rev 13:16-28; that cannot be implemented until after the exit resurrection of the Church. 2Thes 2:3-12;
At the Tower of Babel God stopped Nimrod who was Satan's useful idiot because of his power lust from implementing this monolithic political-religious culture when he supernaturally destroyed the common bond of a single language.
The multiplication of languages terminated the formation of the monolithic culture and led to freedom for the formation of different groups and, different cultures ultimately, different nations.
Today the largest obstacle to Satan's achievement of the one world state of "internationalism," is the language barrier.
To protect the human race from the self-destructiveness of a one-world state God established the national entity as the fourth divine institution. He "scattered" mankind to limit the expression of human arrogance and impede the spread of evil.
If everyone in the world spoke the same language, wickedness would intensify. Different languages and the founding of the client nation to God form a barrier against the proliferation of satanic evil.
The principle of nationalism, respect by the Christian for it's authority structure, and mandates against rebellion are found throughout Scripture.
Acts 17:26; God made from one man (Adam) every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.
This brings us to the next segment of the satanic attack against "the seed of the woman" as it is deployed against Abraham. We see the genealogy of Abram in Gen 11:10-30,29;
Probably the longest running assault on the "seed of the woman" during human has been anti-Semitism. The prohibition against this assault begins in: Gen 12:1; Now the Lord said to Abram, "Go forth from your country (Ur of the Chaldeans), and from your relatives and from your father's house, to the land which I will show you.
v 2 and I will make you a great nation (promise to make Abram the founder of the Jewish race), and I will bless you (divine favor on Abram personally), and make your name great (he is revered to this day by Islam, Jews & Christians); and you shall be a blessing (to both Jews & Christians);
v 3 and I will bless those who bless you (divine favor on any who are pro-Semitic), and the one who curses you I will curse (divine justice upon any who are anti-Semitic). And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (through the Seed of Abraham, Jesus Christ)."
