In Genesis Chapter 10, we are told that the start of Nimrod’s kingdom began in Babylon, Erec, and Accad.
Now all of these cities were located in a place called the Land of Shinar (modern day Iraq in our times).
Furthermore, in Genesis Chapter 11, we are told the following:
It came about that as they traveled from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shin‘ar and lived there.-Genesis 11:2
So the construction of the Tower of Babel was being spearheaded by Nimrod himself.
Let’s talk a little bit about Nimrod because there is much more to him than meets the eye.
Nimrod was born from Cush who came from the cursed line of Ham.
Nimrod took a lady named Semiramis to be his wife.
Semiramis proclaimed herself to be the Queen of Heaven.
After Nimrod died, his wife proclaimed him to be God.
They had a son who was named Tamuz.
Now interestingly Tamuz was considered to be the reincarnation of the God-man Nimrod.
So we have Nimrod who is God the father, Semiramis, the queen of heaven who is considered to be the mother, and the son who is considered to be the incarnation of the father.
Doesn’t this teaching strangely resemble something you may have learned in a Christian church?
Can you see how the Christian teaching of the trinity had its origins in paganism?
Just know this.
All false religions have their beginning in Nimrod.
These are also known as the “Mystery Babylon Religions”.
No wonder the Jewish people have always been at such odds with Christianity.
It is interesting to note that the names of Nimrod and Semiramis have changed throughout the centuries depending upon which culture and language they appeared in.
Here is a brief snapshot of the names that Nimrod and Semiramis went by as they were adopted by different cultures.
In the Bible, Nimrod is also known as:
-Ninus (the god-man who built Ninevah),
Semiramis (as the mother of all mothers was considered to be the fertility goddess):
-In Egypt, her name was Isis
-In India, her name was Indrani
-In Asia, her name was Cybelle
-In Canaan (now the holy land), her name was Ashtoreth or Astarte
-In modern day English, her name is now Easter
It is also interesting to note that although the word Babel now means disorder and confusion, it originally meant the “City of God”.
Remember “el” means “god”.
Look closely at the spelling of the word “bav-el”.
We know from the account of the Tower of Babel that all the languages of the world originated from one language.
However, it is also true that all the pagan religions of the world have their origin from that one source as well.
“Christianity did not destroy paganism; it adopted it … From Egypt came the ideas of a divine trinity” (The Story of Civilization, Caesar and Christ, Will Durant, Part III, 1944, p. 595).
