The "Little" Tower of Babel (detail)
The "Little" Tower of Babel (detail)
The tower of Babel fell - or better yet - God's hand pushed it over. God allowed the evil work to reach a height exceeding the level that the waters of the Deluge reached or about 15 cubits above the mountain tops.
Much easier to build a 29,051 foot tower than to give up sin!
Nimrod was the man who had the idea to build the tower in order to escape any more floods that God was going to send his way. For Nimrod it was easier to build a 29,051 foot tower and continue to sin and escape God's punishment, than to forsake sin and do the will of God. Think about that for a moment - Nimrod knew God punished sin with the waters of the Deluge so instead of doing the will of God he would rather build the highest tower in the history of man to escape any more punishments. What a fucking idiot! Sin held more attraction for him than the love of God. He paid for it in the end.
What effort and toil went into building the tower! - any time to sin? Where did they find the time to sin?
In order for Nimrod to be safe from any more floods, Nimrod must of known what level the waters of the Deluge reached. Nimrod knew the level to be 15 cubits above the mountain tops.
For those godless NASA scientists who have not cracked open a Bible - here is the story of Nimrod and the tower of Babel
And the earth was of one tongue, and of the same speech. And when they removed from the east, they found a plain in the land of Sennaar, and dwelt in it. And each one said to his neighbour: Come, let us make brick, and bake them with fire. And they had brick instead of stones, and slime instead of mortar. And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous before we be scattered abroad into all lands. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building. And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed. Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another's speech. And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city. And therefore the name thereof was called Babel, because there the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries. Gen.viii.i-ix.Why is the 29,051 foot boundary so important? Well, all the works of men that is all holy works and all profane works must burn up in the fire of the final conflagration at the end of days. That means everything! Now of course none of you believe this, and none of you care.
Because of your indifference, God will send you a wake up call - just like God sent wake up calls to those who built the tower of Babel. Nimrod did not listen - and guess what neither will any of you.
No, none of us listen. Just recently someone got into their head to send up the Olympic torch 260 miles above earth to the International Space Station:
260 Miles Above Earth!
Higher Than The Tower of Babel!
This is the spectacular moment two Russian cosmonauts took the OIympic torch on its first historic spacewalk ahead of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky carried an unlit version of the feather-shaped symbol through the hatch of the International Space Station today. Daily Mail Read More>>>>>
The Olympic torch is just another example of man overreaching his bounds. As a warning or a sign or an evil portent or evil omen or what ever have you maybe God this time will send one and maybe it will appear at the Sochi Winter Games involving the Olympic torch that was sent 260 miles above the set boundary of 29,050 feet - all done to mock God and His set boundary.
Man has spent about 50 years above this set boundary - you would think that sooner or later God is gonna take notice.
For those who are not familiar with this blog, all the space junk etc. that was sent above the 29,051 foot level has to come back here to earth to burn up in the fire of the final conflagration - reason? The fire of the final conflagration is in the bowels of the earth, and it will be released at the end of days to do the will of God and it will cleanse all the sinful works of men both holy and profane. Yes, even the profane space works of men that were shot billions an billions of miles into space. All of it no matter how far away it was shot into space must come back below the set boundary of 29,051 feet.
So expect all the shit that was shot into space to come back someday. How? by the agency of the Angels. Because sure as hell none of you are gonna retrieve any of it.
Now it is reported that the International Space Station has lost its cooling system - only a matter of time before it is abandoned by men and left to float in our upper atmosphere until it finally comes crashing down to earth.

Here, read the words of St Thomas Aquinas on the doctrine of the Fire of the Final Conflagration:
According to St. Thomas Aquinas, the fire of the final conflagration will destroy all the works of men. Every single work by the hand of man will be cleansed by the fire of the final conflagration - St. Thomas Aquinas tells us: "that since the world was, in a way, made for man's sake, it follows that, when man shall be glorified in the body, the other bodies of the world shall also be changed to a better state, so that it is rendered a more fitting place for him and more pleasant to look upon. Now in order that man obtain the glory of the body, it behooves first of all those things to be removed which are opposed to glory. There are two, namely the corruption and stain of sin---because according to 1 Cor. 15:50, "neither shall corruption possess incorruption," and all the unclean shall be without the city of glory (Apoc. 22:15)---and again, the elements require to be cleansed from the contrary dispositions, ere they be brought to the newness of glory, proportionately to what we have said with regard to man. Now although, properly speaking, a corporeal thing cannot be the subject of the stain of sin, nevertheless, on account of sin corporeal things contract a certain unfittingness for being appointed to spiritual purposes; and for this reason we find that places where crimes have been committed are reckoned unfit for the performance of sacred actions therein, unless they be cleansed beforehand. Accordingly that part of the world which is given to our use contracts from men's sins a certain unfitness for being glorified, wherefore in this respect it needs to be cleansed. In like manner with regard to the intervening space, on account of the contact of the elements, there are many corruptions, generations and alterations of the elements, which diminish their purity: wherefore the elements need to be cleansed from these also, so that they be fit to receive the newness of glory."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that fire will be the cleansing instrument: "As stated above (A) this cleansing of the world will remove from it the stain contracted from sin, and the impurity resulting from mixture, and will be a disposition to the perfection of glory; and consequently in this threefold respect it will be most fitting for it to be effected by fire. First, because since fire is the most noble of the elements, its natural properties are more like the properties of glory, and this is especially clear in regard to light. Secondly, because fire, on account of the efficacy of its active virtue, is not as susceptible as the other elements to the admixture of a foreign matter. Thirdly, because the sphere of fire is far removed from our abode; nor are we so familiar with the use of fire as with that of earth, water, and air, so that it is not so liable to depreciation. Moreover, it is most efficacious in cleansing and in separating by a process of rarefaction."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that this fire will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge: "I answer that, Some [*St. Bonaventure, Sentent. iv, D, 47, A, Q] say that the fire in question will rise to the summit of the space containing the four elements: so that the elements would be entirely cleansed both from the stain of sin by which also the higher parts of the elements were infected (as instanced by the smoke of idolatry which stained the higher regions), and again from corruption, since the elements are corruptible in all their parts. But this opinion is opposed to the authority of Scripture, because it is written (2 Pet. 3:7) that those heavens are "kept in store unto fire," which were cleansed by water; and Augustine says (De Civ. Dei xx, 18) that "the same world which perished in the deluge is reserved unto fire." Now it is clear that the waters of the deluge did not rise to the summit of the space occupied by the elements, but only 15 cubits above the mountain tops; and moreover it is known that vapors or any smoke whatever rising from the earth cannot pierce the entire sphere of fire so as to reach its summit; and so the stain of sin did not reach the aforesaid space. Nor can the elements be cleansed from corruptibility by the removal of something that might be consumed by fire: whereas it will be possible for the impurities of the elements arising from their mingling together to be consumed by fire. And these impurities are chiefly round about the earth as far as the middle of the air: wherefore the fire of the final conflagration will cleanse up to that point, since the waters of the deluge rose to a height which can be approximately calculated from the height of the mountains which they surpassed in a fixed measure."
Now it stands to reason that if what St. Thomas Aquinas states is true:
1. that fire of the final conflagration will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge (only 15 cubits above the mountain tops)
2. and all of the sinful works of men are to be destroyed in this final conflagration.
Then all of the works of men will one day occupy or reach a height no greater than the 15 cubits above the mountain tops, which was boundary of the waters of the deluge.
What follows then is that all modern man-made works that had left the orbit of the earth such as NASA's Voyager I & II and Mars Rover Spirit and all other spacecrafts will return to the place in which they were created, which will be below the boundary set by the waters of the deluge and that is 15 cubits above the mountain tops.
Again, the Voyager I & II spacecraft & Mars Rover Spirit & the International Space Station along with all man-made space objects will one day return to the earth.
