History Rising.... or falling?


We're here in Dubai, United Emirates, near the site of the Burj-Dubai - which they hope will be the tallest tower in the world at completion. Sounds a lot like Babel, huh? Mark 13:1-2 Says: "As he was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him 'Teacher, look! What massive stones! What maginficent buildings!' 'Do you see all these buildings?' replied Jesus. 'Not one stone here will be left upon another, every one will be thrown down.'" Think about the World Trade Center and 9-11. What happened to them? These buildings that people worked in, passed on their way to work, and recognized as a part of the United States of America, gone, in about thirty minutes. For all we know, the Burj Dubai could be next. As far as we know, the intentions of the people behind this don't have the same intentions as at Babel - to reach to heaven and outdo God. What we have been told is that they're just outdoing other countries, However, that's like yelling "Look at us, we're so great!" Of course, we all know that "Pride goeth before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction."
So what does God have in store for Dubai? We probably won't know for a while, but it's not necessarily something good.
One last quick note- Notice how the disciples were so fascinated with the buildings. Remember, back then it was all man power, no machines. If the architechture and building then and there was so amazing, and just one building, how much bigger, and how much greater, is the God we serve?

Anyway, this is Desert Oasis News. It's 9:48 P.M., and we're here with the traffic report. The traffic on Al Wasl road was stopped up by a car accident yesterday, and...

Did you write that Kyleigh? And I actually saw the twin towers fall. On TV. We were at our neighbor's house, and they just, fell. It was weird. And scary. But in my opinion, it serves the Americans right. They should have read he story of the Tower of Babe more...
