Welcome and thank you for joining us today. This is read your Bible delusion and we are reading Tro, the VIG inyyear, this ten to fifteen minute daily devotion with Pasto Brad rounds. Wo,keep your Hank in Mycoogood afternoon and hope excited to have you back withus today and we're going to be in Genesus chapter ten and eleven today,as we make our way through the Bible this year. Stealth attack, if I were to say a spelf attack, youthink something secret with hope. It is perhaps the most pope of all attacks and warweapon. What because it's not just the potency ofthat attack. It's the surprise of it creeps up and all of a sudden, it'sthere. What is the stealth attack for ICHREST?...

What is the seend that just creeps intoour lives without us, even knowing about and all of a sudden creates an incredible fall Bot. AChristian, it's pride pride is the stealth attack for Creecrist. It's one of the most dangerous sins you and I can commint and it comesin unknowing creeping in and all of a sudden, it brings about a greatful. That's exactly what happens in Genesischapter eleven we're going to see as genesus chaptereleven we're going to read verse one through verse, nine, but we're going tosee the pride of these group of Peop notice. If you will versewot now ewhole earth use the same language in the same word came about as theyjourneyed ease that they found a plane...

...in the land of Sinar settled there.They said to one another: come let us make bricks and burn them throughou and they use breck for a stone and tar for or or play they said, come. Let us build forourselves, a city and a tower whose top will reach in to heaven and let us makefor ourselves a name otherwise well be scattered over the whole face of theearth. The Lord God came down to see the cityand the tower which the sons of Menefill the Lord said behold. They areone people with one language they, and this is what they begin to do. Nothing which they purpose to do willbe impossible for them come. Let us go down and confuse their language so that they will not understand oneanother speech,...

...so the Lord scattered them abroad fromthere over the face of the whole word and they stopped building the city.Therefore, its name was called battle, because there, the Lord confused thelanguage of the whole Earth and from there the ward scattered them abroadover the face of the oer first wor. It says let us make a mameor our sells. Oh, the wretched depth of human pride pride is an insidious sen that creepsinto the lives of even the most saintly. Of all. Christians. Bride is not like the sin of infidellicInfideli. No pride is not that obvious, but it can be far more dangerous anddestructive than even the scen of infidelity. It is the stealth attack ona Christian life and once prime enters...

...into one's life, the terms on itscloaking device so as to go unnoticed by the individual and if slowly destroys tearing down it seems to find more than enough itvictims, even within the ranks of ChristianMinister Rod. Call Junior Hill wants to seeat.That he's seen many pastors who construct it now, what a sad commentary that Eis priywill destroy us. The temptation toward prime for the Christians, even forministers today seems to have reached nuclear dimensions with facebook andtwitter accounts. These two social networds tools make itincredibly easy to say. Look at me. Look at what I've done. Look at whatI'm doing. Look at what I feel, Oh and...

...by the way, let's praise God for whathe is doing, sneaking in a little past to God, allthe while the motives of our hearts is for peopleto look at us. Oh, be careful about this. Sin Of pidis creeks in and it was the scene of these inhabitants here, ababt it theyno longer needed God they could create better than nod. Didyou see it there? They had breath for sil the create stone, the creates the rocks God. Oh God's creation, wasn't good man would need to make brick himself.We don't need God. We can do it better than do and that's also, instead of play, theycreated mor more and so this they don't...

...need God for the clay. God creates theclay; they don't need, God for play, they'll create their own asphol. Theydon't need God for stone, tdhey'll create their own Breinh. Very clearly,this pride was creeping into their Leyes and they wanted to create a namefor the Salls, rather that Gorifyng God and doing whathe said and Jenesus chapter nine verse one when he says to feel the earth so we're not GOINGTO norify God we'renot goint Nobey God we're going to come together and we're going to do what wewon't and O went by the way we'll make an ame for ourselves and OA by the waywill bui better than God can Bel, Oh and by the way we don't need God. I find it interesting that, althoughthe place battle hell in its boundaries, the combined genius of the entire world spoke one language. The combined geniusof the whole world was right here in...

...this one place. Can you imagine the combined genius ofall world today being able to speak one language and being in one place? Canyou imagine what we could do and yet, even with that combined geniussurvival says, God came down man and all of his pride and all hisJenes and all this go. I steal down the hell down here. God isup here, he's so much greater than Ey. Am how Dar act like we don't need Yeod, that'sexactly what they were doing nbn rather than making a great name forthemselves. They were given the name Babel, which means confusion or humility. I did find it very interesting herethat, as God comes down him- and he...

...sees this great work of Man Ind alltheir pride- The thingend up earning this name of humility rather thanmaking a great name for themselves. They are Um, they earned the humiliating name of Ah and what's interesting, is even in thefollowing chapter: See when you get into Genesis ChapterTwelve, we see April and Abram obeys, go abral, pobdls, Godand Isn. So doing, abral gets a new, a do miss his here in Babl they were going to make aname for themselves and all their frigt, God brought them low and Humbl twit. God says about Frid pride comesbefore a fall,...

...but those who humble ourselves- obeyGod honor him. He exalts it's interesting. That e here in Genesis,eleven they're going to make a NAM for themselves. They're brought low genesis,twelve Abram's, going to honor God an Oben and God gives him a Nuna Abrhama. Oh the God mind in life en Yeu, and I in our simple prid some days we live as if we don't needGod, we don't pray. We don't read the Bott, Oh, how wretched we are. We do need Godwe needhing today and maybe you'll just want to confess that in a prayer, Josay God, I need and humble ourselves before and confesswe can't do it on our own. We can't make it ourselves, we need him and youknow what happene, when that we do, that, God bless us, God Ilis. I want to praythat Fott, you right...

...bother, I pray or all of those who arewatching this. I ask in Jesus name as we're studying the Bible tat you MiGBin us as we humble ourselves and obey you God. We don't want it to be about us.We don't want to use the platforms you've given us to make Ourd Angr wewanted to be about you.
