The God of All Nations
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard – Psalm 19:3.
The Apostle Paul explains the awesomeness of God, and how that everyone should know about God because nature proclaims His existence and power. God is the Creator of the universe and every nationality, His creation wanted so serve other gods so He allowed them to live in a delusion. Although God loves everyone He does not push Himself on anyone that does not want Him. God gave His Son, and His Son has made every believer to be a witness of God’s existence, not only through nature, but through the salvation His Son has given to all men of every nationality under the sun. God is not the God of a certain class of people, nationality nor gender, but He’s the God of all creation (And hath made one blood of all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation – Acts 17:26).
God’s sovereignty created one man, Adam. As Adam’s descendants multiplied and formed nations, it was God who designed their course when they tried to build a tower to reach the heavens (And the whole earth was one language, and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth – Genesis 11:2, 4). The words they spoke became a manifestation of what they received (Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound [confuse] their language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scattered them abroad upon [over] the face of all the earth – Genesis 11:9).
What men will not do willingly, God forces them to do as a result of a judgment, there are three great judgments on sinful humanity in the first section of Genesis (1) The first is the expulsion from Eden, (2) is the flood and the third (3) is the scattering of the people from Babel. The name Babel is linked with the Hebrew verb balal (to confuse) the result of this confusion was the scattering of mankind. Babel and Babylon serve as a name and symbol in the Bible for activities directed against God by the nations of the earth.
Although God scattered them, He still loved them but their sinful nature wanted to worship and serve other gods so He allowed them to do what their heart desired. Although God loves the people He created, He will never push Himself on anyone that does not want Him neither will He make a person do right when they want to do wrong.
God has always given instructions to His people to follow, it’s their decision whether or not they want to adhere to His instructions. From the creation of Adam and every generation, it has been God whose the maker and creator of everything. The influence of Satan and the hardness of people’s heart make them reject that there is a God. God does not want His people to worship or serve Him by culture or nationality, He wants them to serve Him according to His instructions for all nations.
There is only one God, and Creator of all. His love is for His creation, He is the Creator, not the creation. God has placed within each one of us the yearning to worship and seek Him. Many seek Him with their intellect therefore creating images to worship, but He’s looking for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth and this isn’t by nationality, but spirit (God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth – John 4:24). No matter where we are, no matter what country or nationality, God will hear the prayer, and He will answer the prayer. Salvation is for every one of God’s creations!
