Nimrod and the Tower of Babel
This teaching is not all that you expect it to be about. When I was preparing this teaching the Lord revealed some things about DNA and how we are born with the predispositions we inherit from our parents. In other words, they pass down to their children and children's children their positive and negative traits and characteristics. It is in our very genes. Fascinating. You'll be blessed by this teaching. Please share it with others!
Notes for the lesson:
Genesis 6:4, There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward…
In our last lesson, “Nephilim Lineages: Ham, Cush, Nimrod”, we learned how it may have been possible for the Nephilim to return after the flood. The flood was meant to cleanse the earth of the Nephilim, but the Bible states they were on the earth also after the flood.
We learned about two possible theories on how it was possible; Single Incursion Theory and Multiple Incursion Theory.
Single Incursion Theory can explain the presence of giants on the earth through epigenetics. Epigenetics is the impact of our thoughts and behaviors on our body, soul, and spirit, as well as our future generations.
Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence. https://www.cdc.gov/genomics/disease/epigenetics
The idea that our thoughts and behaviors can impact our body, soul, and spirit, and our future generations really gives more purpose to why it is important to adjust negative thoughts and behaviors knowing that future generations will also be impacted by them.
Through epigenetics it has been discovered not only is mental health impacted though negative thoughts and behaviors, but also physical health. We know the impact of stress on the heart and other immune systems. What is being learned through epigenetics is that not only are we affected but also our future generations are affected. It is up to us to decide will they be affected in a negative way or in a positive way.
Epigenetics is two words. The first is epi which means on top of. The second is genetics. So epigenetics is a set of instructions that sits on top of the gene. Epigenetic markers are something that acts like a switch that turns on or off the genes.
Within epigenetics there’s a transgenerational component. Transgenerational meaning passed from one generation to the next, such as, transgenerational trauma which is the psychological and physiological effects that the trauma experienced by people has on subsequent generations in that group.
Gen 6:9-10 NKJV, This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
We’ve learned from this passage that Noah was perfect in his DNA. It was not corrupted by Nephilim DNA. Noah, his wife, and three sons were a hundred percent human. It is possible that one of more of Noah’s sons wives had the Nephilim gene.
Ham demonstrated a pattern of sexual perversion in his life. It isn’t farfetched that he would have chosen a wife that had a Nephilim gene. If Ham’s wife had a Nephilim gene but it had an epigenetic marker that was turned off you wouldn’t have seen the phenotype of the Nephilim within her. The term "phenotype" refers to the observable physical properties of an organism; these include the organism's appearance, development, and behavior.
Let’s follow this logic. Ham’s wife could have had this epigenetic marker that was turned off but a curse released in her bloodline could have turned on that Nephilim gene because we actually see that in the life of Nimrod. This helps us to understand that Ham’s choices led to Nimrod’s predispositions and they were bad predispositions which he acted upon and in doing so unlocking the Nephilim gene.
Genesis 10:8 NKJV, Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.
Nimrod means rebellion, which is a hallmark trait of the Nephilim.
He began means to profane oneself, defile oneself, pollute oneself through ritual or sexual means.
Mighty one ‘gibbor’ means strong, valiant, champion, giant, chief, impetuous soldier or hunter. Root word ‘gabar’ means to prevail, to be strong, to show oneself mighty, to act proudly toward God.
The first mention of the word ‘gibbor’ is in Genesis 6:4 and that was to describe the Nephilim.
Nimrod’s character is important to understand the Nephilim traits in him and how that plays out throughout history. Nimrod wasn’t born with the phenotype of the Nephilim but he defiled his genome by engaging in ritualistic sexual acts. We know that because of the meaning of the Hebrew phrase ‘he began’.
If Nimrod could transform himself by profaning, defiling, and polluting himself through ritual (words) and sexual means, then a man can also transform himself by the Word of God and acts of righteousness (obedience).
Ritual - means the established form for a ceremony, specifically: the order of words prescribed for a religious ceremony. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ritual
Nimrod basically profaned, defiled, and polluted himself spiritually with words, or in other words, he performed spells, incantations, and curses to open portals (himself) to know the Watchers/Nephilim.
The word know in Hebrew is ‘yada’ means to know, to become acquainted with anyone, anything; often used as a euphemism for sexual intercourse; of a man; to know a woman; to lie with her.
Nimrod, through ritual and sexual magic opened himself spiritually to know, to become acquainted with, through sexual intercourse with the Watchers/Nephilim, and in the process he became one with them was transformed and became ‘gibbor’, a giant.
Knowing this little bit of information should bring certain scriptures to mind.
Jeremiah 1:4-5, Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: Before I formed you in the womb I knew (yada) you…
In the NT the word ‘know’ has a similar if not the same meaning.
Matthew 11:27-30 NKJV, "All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. "Come to Me, all [you] who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
Know – epiginōskō – to become thoroughly acquainted with, to know thoroughly; to know i.e. to understand (by instruction)
Yoke – zygos - a yoke that is put on draught cattle; of troublesome laws imposed on one, esp. of the Mosaic law, hence the name is so transferred to the commands of Christ as to contrast them with the commands of the Pharisees which were a veritable 'yoke'; yet even Christ's commands must be submitted to, though easier to be kept.
2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV, Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Yeshua was basically saying no one can be one with the Father except by being one with Him. The way to be one with Him is by being born-again being coupled with Him through the yoke of His Torah (Word).
Law – torah - law, direction, instruction; root word: to direct, teach, instruct.
Putting all of this together we can understand the following. Epigenetics is set of instructions on top of a gene that tells that gene how to perform or operate (manifest). An epigenetic marker is the switch that turns the gene on or off. Phenotype refers to the observable physical properties of an organism; these include the organism's appearance, development, and behavior. Nimrod had the Nephilim gene, but it was dormant, turned off. Once the epigenetic marker was switched on Nimrod began to display (manifest) observable physical properties of the Nephilim phenotype.
The same thing is true for us. When a believer begins to know ‘epiginōskō’ God’s Word it is like a form of spiritual epigenetics. The Word of God becomes a set of instructions (Torah) that sits on top of our DNA. Guess what happens next? God’s Word begins to switch on epigenetic markers placed in us by God Himself and we begin to manifest His observable physical properties; these include appearance, development, and behavior. In other words, we began to manifest God’s phenotype.
Faith is the key to switching on the genetic God markers placed in spiritual DNA by His Spirit.
Hebrews 11:1 NKJV, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:3, By faith we understand… that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
Hebrews 11:4, By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice…
Hebrews 11:5, By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death…
Hebrews 11: 7, By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
Hebrews 11:8, By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
Hebrews 11:11, By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed…
Hebrews 11:6, But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:17, By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac…
Hebrews 11:22, By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped...
Hebrews 11:24, By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter…
Hebrews 11:30, By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.
Remember, these are spiritual markers I am speaking of and they require FAITH in what God’s Word says about us that gives us confidence to speak the Word of God and by FAITH we are equipped to accomplish all that God has called us to accomplish.
Romans 10:17, Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the spoken Word of God…
God Himself faithed us into existence….
Psalm 139:13-16 NKJV, For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed (Hebrews 11:1). And in Your book they all were written (words that formed), The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
Did you see that? Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed? Think of it this way, God’s Faith was the substance through which He brought you into existence, and Faith was His evidence that you existed even though you could not yet physically be seen with the natural eye. What did He speak in faith to bring you forth? He spoke and is still speaking everything written in His book concerning your days before any of them existed. Faith is the key.
How does God develop faith in us? Trails, tests, and tribulations…
James 1:1-8, 12-17, 19-20 NKJV, James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings. My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. ... Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear (words), slow to speak (take no thought saying), slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the (words, or the fruit of the) righteousness of God.
Proverbs 18:20-21, A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit (words) of his mouth; From the produce (words) of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the (words formed by his) tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
We are living in a time where great darkness is covering the earth and gross darkness is covering the people. It is very important that we mind our words like never before because God has increased the authority and anointing on His spoken Word, and the Serpent, the same as in the Garden, seeks to usurp that authority and power from you as he did Adam and Eve. Mind your words this day.
Romans 12:1-2 NKJV, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Jeremiah 31:31-34 NKJV, "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah-- “not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. "But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. "No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."
We are in a war and this war is a spiritual war that is won not by strength nor by might in the natural, but by the Spirit of Lord and the anointed Word of God.
Matthew 11:12 NKJV, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
In the above verse, the kingdom suffering violence is a spiritual kingdom. The war is a spiritual war and carnal weapons are useless against the enemy because he too is a spiritual enemy. We fight in this war with words formed by the revelations God releases to us concerning every battle we find ourselves in.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NKJV, For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
So what about Nimrod’s Tower of Babel, Samuel? The tower itself was a stargate, a portal, an open door to the second heaven. It was also a temple with priests and priestesses performed sexual rituals and ceremonies, having intercourse with the Watchers and Nephilim spirits that entered through the stargate called the Tower of Babel.
We too have a strong tower that we can run to and are safe. It is the Name of the Lord!
Proverbs 18:10 NKJV, The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.
Psalm 61:3 NKJV, For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.
Technically, we are the portal through which God enters in and fills us with Himself.
Psalm 24:1-10 NKJV, A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah
In closing, the Tower of Babel was a stargate. We're also a tower for the Lord we're actually a house being built, a spiritual house for the Lord. A portal or a stargate in a sense that the Lord can come through His people to impact the world and compel those who do not know Him to come in to the Kingdom through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower not a tower of babbling fools. The people of the Tower of Babel had their language confused by God because they were of one mind and one spirit and nothing was impossible for them. God confused their language so they could not understand each other. God also confused the language between the people and the Watchers and spirits of the Nephilim. God also confused the language between the Watchers which is why they became territorial because they no longer could communicate effectively with each other.
Prayer: Abba, confuse the language of the spirits that are coming against me and cause them to be against each other. Make it so that they no longer can speak to me and also that I can no longer understand them or any other their lies ever again.
To be continued!
Until next time, receive this blessing!
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace…His shalom!
