"And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."
(Genesis 11:6 KJV)
This Biblical quotation is about the building of the Tower of Babel by Nimrod. The people were going to do this in their own pride and arrogance. They had decided that they would build a tower (Ziggurat) that would reach right up to heaven so they could talk to God. But Our Awesome God confused their language and they couldn't even understand each other enough to keep on building the tower. Then God scattered the people in the city to other places and after a while the Tower of Babel fell into a ruin.
Man seems to think he can become a god with just his own efforts and his own laws (and still does today). He keeps leaving Our Awesome God out of his plans. God created him! God knows all men. God knows how to create life and what man needs. God knows the things He created us for and it wasn't to sin. He will not be left out!
Our Awesome God knew us well enough to know what man would do and what He needed to do to give us a way to live in heaven with Him. Once again man had sinned to the point of making God angry as He was at the time of the flood. But God is merciful and gracious so He only changed their language and scattered them. He didn't give up on them and destroy people from all the Earth to create another being instead. No, God still loves us and wants us to love and talk to Him. God wants us to choose Him!
So God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to Earth to be born as a human with aches and pains, temptations and frustrations, to teach us and be an example of how we should live. Then to suffer and die on a cross and arise again on the third day to sit on the right hand of Our Awesome God defending us who are Christians. But even God will someday say, "This is enough. Your cup full of iniquity is full". Then Jesus Christ will come for the second time.
So God made a Way for your sins to be made "white as snow" to Him through believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. Do you believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son? He is truly "Our Awesome God" and yours.
