Week 70 shares with us : Nimrod and the first try of the "New World Order " .

Nimrod , the "Mighty "

The first reference made to Nimrod in the Bible is in Genesis 10.8 , which also indicates that it was the " mighty one in the earth" after the Flood. Scholars link the name Nimrod with the verb " Marad [1 ] " rebellion , if this is correct , the phrase 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord should be understood as a mighty hunter faced God.

Nimrod was the son of Cush , grandson of Ham and grandson of Noah. He submitted all his competitors and won the absolute power over all humanity of their time and tried to impose a " New World Order, " contrary to established by the Lord , who had given leadership to Sem.

Jamieson [6 ] says that this great ability to hunt wild animals ( a threat to the first villages ) have gained the favor of the people , besides giving him great fame . No doubt this popularity , a great capacity for leadership and population explosion is revealed in Genesis chapter X , have been the basis of Nimrod to organize the first empire in the post-Flood Era .

Some scholars have attempted to identify Nimrod with Sharrukin [ 2] or Sargon of Akkad [3 ] , the founder of the First Empire ( Akkadian) that can remember. Others see in it the figure of the Assyrian god Ninurta [4 ] , the god of war and hunting , as Nimrod , was happy to hunt their enemies . [5]

The beginning of his kingdom was the city of Babel, and soon expanded in the lower Mesopotamia founding other strengths :

10 And it was the beginning of his kingdom was Babel , Erech , Accad, and Calne, in the land of Shinar.

Then, once strong in the south began his campaign to the north :

11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth , Cala ,
12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah , which is a great city . Gen.10.8 - 12 RV 60 .

This military expedition of conquest was occupied by the Semites [7 ] tribal territories. We see that making a deeper reading of the text can deduce a war even if not expressly indicated [8 ] . The claim his kingdom was achieved with the subjugation of all the tribes , and territorial expansion was consolidated with the construction and organization of the population in cities - states.

This whole process obviously took time , although no explicit data , the approximate time could be deduced from the following information: Peleg ( whose name is perpetuated in the city Phaliga ) have lived from approximately 2269-2030 . of J. C. Its name means " division " because " in his days the earth was divided " , ie, " the people of the earth" ; "from there the LORD scattered them over the entire surface of the earth ," but we must not take this date as a determining factor , there really is not all records are guesses .

Since then Satan will seek to impose their New World Order , each of the Great Powers was an attempt that failed :
  • Babylonian Empire
  • Assyrian Empire
  • Persian Empire
  • Empire of Alexander
  • Roman Empire
  • Nazi Germany (A " recreation of the Roman Empire )

Although each of them had a limited chance of winning big success , God finally destroyed them all . With the same last will finally victory will be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
