His father, Jack E. Levin, is the author of several books.
So, what's going on here??? I believe the answer is staring us right in the face! Let's look at the chart again and go back just a little bit further in time. Look at Genesis It tells us that Eber lived years after he became the father of Peleg.
Check out Genesis To Eber were born two sons: The Bible just gave you a big clue as to what's going on here. Eber is the man whose name is that from which we get the term "Hebrew.
After Eber had Peleg, he lived years. What happened in those years?
Nimrod ruled as king of the world! In Egypt, he was known as Osiris. As we have already seen, Osiris was known as the King of kings and Lord of lords! So, what we see here is a king over the whole world, who eventually left his first capital in Babylon and set up his new headquarters in Egypt!
So, in essence, what we have in the Exodus scriptures is an accurate statement by the time God says that to Abram. Now, let's see how this played out. My friend LA Marzulli is at the time of this writing currently working on a new book called, " The Cosmic Chess Match " which deals with the moves and counter-moves between God and Lucifer.
I have often thought about the same thing when looking at history, current events and prophecy.
You can see these constant movements on the "Chess Board of Life" being played out. But I have never seen the moves and counter moves so well played out, than at the beginning of the "new game" that appears to have started shortly after the Flood of Noah.
The first game played out pretty quick. God makes man in His own image and they have a great relationship together. Lucifer gets jealous and tries to break up the relationship.
Because of that, God pronounces a prophetic judgement, stating that Eve's seed will crush his head. Lucifer then tries to mess up the seed in order to subvert this judgement. He nearly succeeds, but God finds ONE family that is still pure enough to preserve the promised Seed. He saves Noah and his family and wipes out the world and all of the Devil's offspring in the Flood.
The Devil doesn't waste any time. Within a hundred years after the Flood, he has a new champion player on the board. God lets the game play out a bit. Just as it looks like Lucifer may have a winning angle lining up, God makes a masterful move and confounds the languages.
Nimrod is down but not out. The Devil still has his power-player in hand. God allows him to move this player into position again. Then, God introduces his own new key player.
By the time Abram was born, Nimrod was still in the land of Shinar. In fact, that was a big part of the reason why God called Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees which was just south of Babylon in the first place.
And this is where "the game" starts to get really interesting.
The Book of Jasher lays it out beautifully. Chapter 12 starts off with a very similar tale to that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednegothe three Hebrew slaves that - in the same place - King Nebuchadnezzar would throw into a firery furnace hundreds of years later.
In this case, the king is Nimrod and it is Abram who has been found guilty and thrown into and yet preserved by God in the furnace. For the sake of brevity, let's pick up the story after that event. I'm going to include quite a bit of the text here because it is loaded with information!Middle English Literature: Essays and Articles.
