At the new start, God told the people to have lots of
babies and spread out over the whole land.
So Noah's sons had lots of babies that grew
up to have lots more babies.
The world started to fill up with
people and they all used the same words and
understood each others words. But some were listening to
the bad one and didn’t listen to God.
They wanted to make themselves great when only God is great.
So they built a really high tower
and went up at night and bowed down to
love and thank the bad ones and the stars
for making them and giving them good things instead of thanking God who made them and gave
them good things.
God still wanted to do His plan
to save them from all bad things and death
but He couldn’t do it if the people were
not listening to Him but listening to the bad
ones. So He came down from his home in
heaven to see the big tower and the city
they were building.
God saw that by joining together the people would be able
to do anything they wanted instead of following His plan to rescue them,
so God mixed up their words so they couldn’t understand each others talking. The people had to
split up and just be with ones who understood their words.
Then, when they stopped building the tower and the city, and
were spread out over all the land, God split
the land into big pieces floating on the oceans so they people couldn’t join together against Him again.
God was good to the people all
over the world and gave them sunshine and rain for their crops to
grow so they would have food for themselves and their animals to eat.
God gave them babies and lots of
good days to be happy. When they listened to Him, He made them
very happy and loaded up their lives with lots
of good things.
But God left the bad ones on
the earth to test the people's hearts to see
if they would listen Him or the bad one.
You see, God is making a very
special happy place that lasts forever and where everyone is with God and
nothing bad ever happens, just big fun and happy
things. If bad ones get in there, they would
ruin it again.
But God is so good, that He
gave the bad ones lots of time and long
chances to listen to
Him so He could make it all better for them too.
You are invited.
