Genesis 10 - The Nations

The Nations

Interesting to me that we have genealogies from Adam to Jesus. So we have a complete history of mankind, not million of years, but a few thousand years.This account was passed down from Abraham to Moses.

Gen 10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

Shem was to be the Spiritual people. Japheth, the thinkers, the philosophers and worldly wise. Ham, the inventers, the adapters to the environment, the servants.

70 names listed,

Gen 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
Gen 10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
Gen 10:4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
Gen 10:5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Greeks, Thracians, Scythians. Japheth’s descendants settled for the most part in Europe and Asia Minor.

They settled in India and Europe. Gomer, Gaul or Gallic... Galatians. The Celts came from Gomer and settled in the British Isles.

Magog ...Russia

Ashkenaz, the islands of Scandanavia.

Riphath, the name Europe comes from this name.


Javan, the Greeks, The Ionions.

Nations named in the final battle of the ages

Ezek 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
Ezek 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Ezek 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Ezek 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
Ezek 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
Ezek 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
Ezek 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Gen 10:6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
Gen 10:7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
Gen 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Gen 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
Gen 10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

Canaanites, Egyptians, Philistines, Hittites, Amorites. Ham’s descendants were settled in Canaan, Egypt, and the rest of Africa.

Mayans, Aztecs...

Cush, Egypt...Father of Nimrod. Mighty hunter...Babel...Assyria, Ninevah

Cush...So Arabia

Nimrod, great hunter. Founder of Babylon and Nineveh...Mighty before the Lord, but not pleasing to the Lord. As the mighty men before the flood; he had demonic control.

Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Cain built the first city before the flood. Nimrod built the first city after the flood. Both were evil.

Nimrod the Hunter, killed wild animals and Nimrod was also a hunter of the souls of man. A type of the antichrist.

The devil hunts, the Lord invites.

The devil hunts to kill. The Lord Jesus Christ, leads and makes us fishers of men, to catch them up from the devil's bondage.

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Mark 1:16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Mark 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

The first mighty man, after the flood. Sexual depravity and perverted religion, began in Babylon. The seed of idolatry and false religions.

MRD...Marduk, drop the N from Nimrod; this god is identified with Nimrod. Queen of heaven, the wife of Marduk. The beginning of the mother and child cult, supposedly a virgin. A satanic counterfeit. Egyptians..Greek...Virgin mother and child cult. Mary worship in Catholic Church; the worship of mother and son.

Revelation...Great harlot, Babylon the great. Earthly honor by religious authority. False stature, power and prestige by religious authority.

Spiritual Babylon...Nimrod began the false gods

Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
Rev 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Land of Shinar, the Sumerians.
Canaan, Occupied Palestine, morally degraded. Demonic invasion. Sidon, city near Tyre. Heth. father of the Hittites... China. Sinites, in China...Sino.

Gen 10:21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
Gen 10:22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
Gen 10:23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
Gen 10:24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
Gen 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
Gen 10:26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
Gen 10:27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
Gen 10:28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
Gen 10:29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
Gen 10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
Gen 10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

Hebrews, Chaldeans, Assyrians, Persians, Syrians. Shem’s descendants were called Semites. Abraham, King David, King Solomon and Jesus descended from Shem. for Abraham or Hebrew.

Pelag, in Hebrew means division. in his days the earth was divided. Pelag means sea, in the Greek. Perhaps the earth was divided by the sea. Archipelago..first sea...Perhaps the Continents spred apart. Seas spread over lands...Lost continent of Atlantis, under the Atlantic? Americas may have been connected with European continent.

The rest of the Bible after Chapter 11, deals with the Children of Shem, the children of Abraham. From Shem came the promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The word of God through, Moses and the prophets and the Living Word from Jesus.

The Japhethites are the worldly wise. The intellectuals. The Western civiizations of Greece and Rome, the logic and systems of government. A demonic Japhite was Hitler, who said they were a pure Arian race. They tried to kill the Jews, the Shemites. Japheth tended to make slaves of the Hamites. African slaves, the Indians.

Still God's word is greater.

1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

The Hamites had great inventions, like the pyramids. They are the servants, China is a Hamite nation serving the world with inventive goods. Almost everything we use came from the inventions of the children of Ham. The toned skins are from Ham.

The final chapter of earth will end with a redeemed people who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. The false religions will be destroyed. Satan has done his work to confuse God's truth, but in the end, God's truth prevails. A redeemed people will live with God forever.

Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

All peoples become one in Jesus Christ. It is not race but faith in the Son of God that we are truly one people of one heart.
