The World Economic Forum is not a new idea, nor is it man’s idea. Men, under the influence of demons, have been led away to attempt autonomy repeatedly. Demons entice men towards independence because they know that humans are mirrors who cannot actually be autonomous. Therefore, when demons tempt us to rebel against God, we begin to reflect their rebellious wills instead of God’s.
Worship says, “Thy will be done.”
Witchcraft says, “My will be done.”
When God reset creation through the flood, He recommissioned the human race through Noah, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” Genesis 9:1. But instead of multiplying and filling the earth, Noah’s descendants tried to concentrate their power through new technology.
Then they said to one another, “Come, let’s make bricks and fire them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. And they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let’s make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered abroad over the face of all the earth.” Genesis 11:3-4 NASB
The new technology for building emboldened the arrogance of the human race, and they defied God by:
1. Concentrating their power rather than serving God, spreading abroad, and subduing the creation.
2. Making “a name for ourselves” rather than embracing their role as God’s image bearers and making His name great. 3. Covenants with other deities by building a tower to connect heaven and earth instead of being the connection between heaven and earth.
The “tower” of Babel is a “ziggurat,” a staircase connected to an altar that gave a deity access to descend from heaven and receive the people's offerings. The gods of the ancient world (who are still here today) depended on humans for their subsistence. Humans would place their offerings on the altar, and the deity (demon) would descend the ladder and eat the offering. It was a codependent relationship like every demonic relationship today.
The Tower of Babel story demonstrates humanity’s unchangeable nature to reflect images. We are incapable of neutrality. We are either for the devil and against Yahweh or vice verse. There is no opting out, no neutral position, and no secularism. You must worship the One true Creator God, or you will worship demons. And the kind of city you build with your life will depend on the God or the gods worshiped there.
Many of us worship demons because they entice us with promises of fulfillment. According to demons of lust (Aphrodite), porn will give us sexual satisfaction. In exchange, we offer up our sons and daughters, wives, marriage, future generations, time, money, sexual energy, and ultimately our lives on the altar of pornography. The demons give temporary satisfaction and receive enormous quantities of human flesh to devour. Worship in a ziggurat was a portal of exchange between demons and humans. We feed the gods, and the gods do minimal favors for us. That's how it worked and why God was displeased with the tower man built in Babel.
The “Gospel” is good news; it is not the doctrinal hammer of condemnation from an angry and offended god. Right before the crucifixion, Jesus took some bread and broke it, and gave it to the disciples saying, “This is My body which is given for you.” And in the same way, Jesus took a cup of wine and said, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.” (See Luke 22:14-20). Notice the trajectory of the gifts; they come down to you rather than from you. Jesus is the God who descended from Heaven with a staircase He provided for Himself, by Himself. And the ziggurat Jesus used was not a staircase of stone or brick but a human body (for humans were always meant to be portals between heaven and earth). Jesus did not need mankind’s assistance. And Jesus came to serve, not to be served. Jesus didn't require animal or human sacrifice to gratify His desires. Jesus came to be the sacrifice for the sake of us. Jesus didn't come to eat our sacrifice but to feed us His flesh. You will not find another God in all the universe who will serve you this way. The revelation of God in the person of Jesus is so extraordinarily wonderful it is nearly impossible to comprehend. But once you begin to see it, you will no longer wonder why generations of Christians continue to fill hymn books with songs of praise, worship, thanksgiving, and adoration.
“What wondrous love is this that the Lord of bliss would bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul?”
God was angry that man rebelled against Him by building an altar to demons, so He came down to disrupt their worship and destroy the city. And this is how God destroyed the city: He climbed up on the altar Himself, and when the demons descended on His flesh, after three days, He came to life again and cut off their heads.
“In that day, the Lord will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, with His fierce and great and mighty sword, even Leviathon that twisted serpent; and He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea.” Isaiah 27:1
The World Economic Forum is an old and defeated dragon. Those making sacrifices on the altar of Baal will be consumed by the demons they worship. But so will everyone who seeks help from demons rather than the One True Creator God. The good news is if you stop sacrificing to demons today and receive the sacrifice made for you by God Himself, you will have a brand new life that will never end.
The fountain of youth is not something you steal, (like adrenochrome), but something you receive as a free gift from God who gave His life for you.
