    At 3:20 of the video the claim is made that Nimrod was born December 25. There is no substantiation in the Bible or elsewhere that backs up that claim. Most of the myths about Nimrod are far removed from the time period of Babylon, and the building of the tower. (Gen 10:10 ) Genesis 10:25 mentions the birth of Peleg, which means division. That is when "the earth was divided." There is no biblical proof that Nimrod had a hand in building the tower. It only mentions that it, along with Erech, Accad, and Calneh. were the "beginning of his kingdom". Chapter 11 of Genesis is the first mention of the building of cities, and it says, "Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there." ( Gen 11:1-2 NKJV) "And they said, 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.'" ( Gen 11:4 NKJV )

    Thanks for the correction Bro T....and your right there is no biblical info on his birth date.....I’ll have to go off and do some research on Nimrod...was he the grandfather of Peleg ?.....I’m not sure but I think some of that info may come from Joesephus...Antiquities of the Jews book 1.....
    Oh well I’ll have a deeper look...and check him out.... a good little study subject...:)

    This is a written talk by Spurgeon..I cannot find a audio of it...it is only part of the talk as it is very long..
    Keep in mind Spurgeon was a part of the great reformation work,,,,he still believed in the trinity at this time etc.
    But his understanding of Jehovah was great...ones like him did a great work in directing the way out of BTG...which was and is a painful loooooong process by mans yard stick of time....

    As the scriptures say..
    Beroean Study Bible ECC 3:7
    A time to tear and a time to mend.
    A time to keep quiet and a time to speak.

    If it is Truth...it should bear up under scrutiny...


    tan Tabernacle Pulpit 1
    WITNESSES FOR GOD
    NO. 3165
    (Suggested by his being summoned to attend the police court as a witness).
    A SERMON
    PUBLISHED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1909, DELIVERED BY C. H. SPURGEON,
    AT THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE, NEWINGTON, IN THE YEAR 1875.
    “You are My witnesses, says the LORD.” Isaiah 43:10.
    IT is some time since I have known what it is to be at leisure. One’s time from morning till night is occupied in different departments of the Master’s service and it has been peculiarly troublesome to me during the last week to be compelled to spend many hours in a police court. While sitting on the bench this text has again and again occurred to me—“You are My witnesses, says the LORD.”
    A great trial is going on, of which all worlds constitute the jury—a great trial between the powers of evil and the one perfect Lord of Good. Slanders have been vented against the name and majesty of heav- en and plots have been invented with the intent to overthrow holiness and the truths of God. The whole fraternity of hell has stirred up their malicious craftiness to defame the God of heaven and earth. We know which way the suit will be decided, for we know where the truth lies, but lo, these many centuries the matter has been hanging in the balances. Sometimes it has seemed that truth had gained the day, but at other times the powers of evil have come to the front. This trial is still proceeding. Satan brings up his witnesses, ready enough to lie and to establish the teachings of the father of lies and, on the other hand, the Lord brings up His witnesses to bear testimony for truth and righteousness. There are many in this place of whom the text speaks. “You are My witnesses, says the LORD.” We are summoned in this great trial of the ages to stand forward as witnesses for God.
    Very simply, indeed, let us talk of this matter.
    I. At the outset we will take the simple assertion that WE ARE WITNESSES and inquire what sort of witnesses we ought to be? I count it no small honor for the good Lord to call me as a witness in His case. Hence, I, for one, am a willing witness. I need no subpoena to compel me to come forward and bear such witness as I can for the glory of His great name! Such of you as can cheerfully come forward for the Lord should give their attention to the duty of witnesses. Let us see what are the main points of that duty.

    First, let us be present to witness, in our proper place, at the proper time. I know some Christians who are of a very “retiring” disposition—I believe that is their favorite word. I fear the truth of God would say they are cowardly and, therefore, they are silent when their witness should be borne. They are willing enough to bear testimony when thousands are doing the same and they can shout, “Hosanna,” when all the streets are ringing with it—but not so many are prepared to witness for Christ when the hoarse cry of, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” is heard on every side. If we are witnesses for God we are bound to be witnesses to all that we know, but flesh and blood will suggest to us to be out of the way when unpopular truths are in question.
    Certain brethren find it convenient to insist upon quiet portions of the Word of God and not on truths which might cause them trouble and provoke discussion. That doc- trine which is already received, they will affirm because all men agree with them, but the very portion of truth which most needs witnessing is shirked and even looked down upon with disfavor! Let us always be there when there is a witness needed to be browbeaten and abused because he states the unpalatable truth of God! Never pick and choose in truth, or in your witness to it.

    Or if you must make a choice, vin- dicate most that truth which is most despised. If you happen to be where men are blaspheming; witness against that blasphemy, calmly but firmly. If you dwell where error is taught, wait till you have a fair opportunity and then stand up for Jesus! I do not say that you are to rush about like a knight errant,

    Volume 55 Tell someone today how much you love Jesus Christ. 1
    2 Witnesses for God Sermon #3165
    fighting with everybody—but when there is a demand for a witness upon any point of truth, be you the man and witness a good confession for Jesus your Lord!
    Next, if we are witnesses for God, we should not only be in our place, but we should be willing to speak up when the time comes. No redeemed man must be in any degree an unwilling witness for his Lord. It is a pity when truth has to be extracted from us with as much difficulty as a decayed tooth. That is the best wine which flows most freely from the grape and that is the best testimony which a man bears with cheerful spirit because he values the truth in his own soul, and would have others prize it too! The thought that our Lord Jesus was silent for us should prevent our ever being silent towards Him. One word from His mouth in Pilate’s Hall would have broken the spell which bound Him to death, but He would not speak it. And now, if one word from our lips would sign our death warrant, if it is a word for truth and Christ, let us speak it and joyfully accept the consequences! God’s true children are never born dumb—therefore speak out like a true man. What you know, tell! What God has taught you, teach! What you have learned in the closet, proclaim on the housetop! And what was whispered in your ear in com- munion with your God, blaze it abroad before all men! Speak up, speak up for Jesus!

    I do not know if this is right or not but it sounds feasible and everyone can work it out them selves
